Kenneth Copeland - Putting Your Healing Covenant Into Action

Father, we thank You today and we bless and praise the name of Jesus. We activate our Covenant today, the Covenant of healing, the Covenant of life, the Covenant of life more abundantly. And we thank You for it. We give You praise and honor and once again we have a Covenant with our God for revelation from on high because You said You would do it and that's good enough for us. We receive it. We thank You for it and we praise You. In Jesus' Name we pray, amen.

Kenneth Copeland: Come on and give Him praise, glory to God. Thank You, Lord Jesus. And once again, would you join me in welcoming Professor Greg Stephens to this broadcast?

Greg Stephens: Thank you. It's an honor.

Kenneth Copeland: And I, well, I don't like to brag on him too much, you know, but yeah, I do. I really do. I didn't mention his doctorate and, you know, so Doctor Professor Greg Stephens. Welcome, sir.

Greg Stephens: Thank you.

Kenneth Copeland: Praise God.

Greg Stephens: 'm a disciple of Jesus.

Kenneth Copeland: Yes, I am too.

Greg Stephens: Everything else is just commentary.

Kenneth Copeland: Yeah, you know what? I learned a long time ago, you can take that diploma and about a dollar and a half and you can get a cup of coffee.

Greg Stephens: That's right. That's right.

Kenneth Copeland: But it's an earned doctorate and I wanted to recognize it.

Greg Stephens: Yes, thank you. Thank you for that.

Kenneth Copeland: Praise God forevermore. Oh, you know where to open your Bibles. The Book of Ephesians, of course. This book, this Book of Ephesians. Hey, how long does it take to read six chapters? You can read this for a long time, a long time at the Lord's encouragement. I read First John every day, every day, every day, every day, every day, until I believed the love, you know? But that's the way you do Covenant. And it has to be activated.

Greg Stephens: Yes sir.

Kenneth Copeland: It isn't enough just to know about it. It isn't enough to believe it. It has to go into action and that's what we're gonna be talking about today: putting our healing Covenant into action. Ephesians Chapter Two, verse 11, "Remember, that you being in time past, Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision", or a blood Covenant in the blood of animals in the beginning and then the blood of a man, which was Abram, changed his name to Abraham. God putting that H in the middle of that name is Hashem. He's in Covenant with Him then.

Greg Stephens: We're Yod-Hay-Vav-Hay

Kenneth Copeland: Oh yeah.

Greg Stephens: Hay is in there.

Kenneth Copeland: Hay is in there.

Greg Stephens: Yeah.

Kenneth Copeland: Yes, sir. Oh that's The Name.

Greg Stephens: That's The Name.

Kenneth Copeland: Oh, son.

Greg Stephens: In Abraham's name.

Kenneth Copeland: That's The Name.

Greg Stephens: Yes, sir. Yes, sir.

Kenneth Copeland: That's the.

Greg Stephens: And so now if, here's the good thing about that. You ready to shout? If you're in Abraham, and you are because of Jesus...

Kenneth Copeland: Yes.

Greg Stephens: You have The Name in you.

Kenneth Copeland: That's what got to me in Philippians Chapter Two. Let's turn over there.

Greg Stephens: Yeah, let's go.

Kenneth Copeland: Let's go over there. This is, oh man. The reason I don't attempt to pronounce that thing, the absolute correct pronunciation of it, and I want you to comment more about this 'cause you know more, far more about it than I do somewhere in ages past, had been lost. And it's such a Holy Name, such a Holy Name. It is in reality, no more holy than Yeshua.

Greg Stephens: Right, mmhmm.

Kenneth Copeland: Or English, Jesus.

Greg Stephens: Jesus.

Kenneth Copeland: Yeshua Ha-Mashiach.

Greg Stephens: Jesus the Messiah is what you just said.

Kenneth Copeland: And, but I'm not even gonna attempt to pronounce it. I mean who am I? I'm not even gonna. So I just "Yod-Hay-Vav-Hay". I just spell it. Glory to God.

Greg Stephens: And you see it the Bible, capital L, capital O, capital R, capital D.

Kenneth Copeland: Yeah, that's it.

Greg Stephens: And many times we pronounce it Jehovah or Yahhovah in Hebrew. Yod hay, I'm doing the letters for, it's just the letters yod, hay, vav, and hay. In Paleo-Hebrew, now we talked about this a few weeks ago. Paleo-Hebrew which is picture symbols, not the letters, Yod is a hand, open, yod. Hay is to behold or to see. Vav is a nail and hay is once again. So yod, hand, hay. Behold the hand. Behold the nail. It's pointing to one Person.

Kenneth Copeland: Well it started with a hand.

Greg Stephens: This is where Thomas saw His hand and he believed.

Kenneth Copeland: Yeah.

Greg Stephens: It's beautiful.

Kenneth Copeland: And that's what he was after.

Greg Stephens: That's exactly what he was after.

Kenneth Copeland: Yeah, he needed that.

Greg Stephens: Yes, sir.

Kenneth Copeland: Never doubted again.

Greg Stephens: No, he did not.

Kenneth Copeland: That moment changed him forever.

Greg Stephens: He touched the LORDship, capital L-O-R-D, when he did that.

Kenneth Copeland: Yeah.

Greg Stephens: Amen.

Kenneth Copeland: I saw this, Chapter Two in the Book of Philippians. And I want you to do something here that is absolutely correct as we read. Are all of you reading from the King James translation? All right, there's something you must do here. Verse Eight, "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". Mark out A. "Given Him His name", Yod-Hay-Vav-Hay, "Has given Him His Name, which is above every name, that at the Name of Jesus". Let's change that. You can make a little note of this if you want to. Well, let me finish it first, then I'll show you something. "At the name of Jesus, every knee should bow, of things", beings, names, "in Heaven, things", beings, names "in earth and things", beings, names "under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is" Yod-Hay-Vav-Hay, "to the glory of" Yod-Hay-Vav-Hay, "His Father".

Greg Stephens: Yes sir.

Kenneth Copeland: God read that to me one day like that.

Greg Stephens: Mmm.

Kenneth Copeland: I was, one night I went to bed and I had that Name and the study of the Name and my Covenant place in that Name. And I just rolled over on my back. Gloria was already asleep. And I just said, "Lord, teach me Yod-Hay-Vav-Hay". I'm telling you, I shook. Tears came into my eyes. And I heard Him say, "I will".

Greg Stephens: Mmm, mmm, mmm.

Kenneth Copeland: That was a long time ago. Having faith in that Name. "Shoo"! Just shocked to a new height. And it's kind of all over me right now.

Greg Stephens: Yeah.

Kenneth Copeland: Just shocked to a new height. When I speak that Name, my lips are blessed. Ephesians Chapter Two. Or excuse me, Ephesians Chapter Three, Verse 14. "For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family in Heaven and earth is named". Your name is equal to Yod-Hay-Vav-Hay by Covenant of blood.

Greg Stephens: Yes, sir.

Kenneth Copeland: Now here, He said in John, during the Covenant meal. He said, "He that believes on Me, the works that I do shall he do also, and greater works than these shall he do. Because I go to my Father, and I'm gonna send the Holy Spirit". He just got through saying, "The words I speak unto you are not My own, for it's the Father that dwells within me". He does the works. And here is the greater works. It's right here. I'll read this quickly. "That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man; that", His anointing, Jesus, the Anointed One, "may dwell in your heart by faith", by faith, by faith, Covenant faith here, Covenant partners with God. "By faith, that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend". That means may have working knowledge. "with all saints what is the breadth and length and depth and height, and to know the love of Christ, which passes all knowledge, that you might be filled with the fullness of Yod-Hay-Vav-Hay Himself". My God. Happy ain't the word for what's happening to me, friend.

Greg Stephens: Yes, sir.

Kenneth Copeland: Now, look at this. Look at this. "Now unto Him", here's the greater works. People have batted that around for a long time and the Lord just spoke it to me one day. He said, "Kenneth, here's the greater works. Pay attention". "Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the dunamis that works on the inside of Him, unto Him be glory". He does a great miracle in my life. Oh, Lord, but now I can think of that. I've had it happen. So He said the next is gonna, somewhere it has to be bigger than that. There are the greater works because it's pressing us and pressing us to come into miracles we've never seen before.

Greg Stephens: Amen, and that's how the world's gonna know. If we go back to that prayer, that last instructions in John Chapter 14, you quoted a while ago. "Believeth on Me", the greater works will he do. The verse right in front of it, here in Verse 11, "Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the works I do". They're gonna believer because they see the healing anointing working in your life.

Kenneth Copeland: Why sure.

Greg Stephens: They've seen you not having the flu. They see, what is different about you? Well, they're gonna see Yod-Hay-Vav-Hay in me being expressed.

Kenneth Copeland: Greg, this is real simple right here. Everybody in this room understands and has done so. Go to your airport. Buy a ticket. Get on an airplane. Go somewhere. That's understanding. But I've gone a step further, 60 years ago, and learned how to fly. So I go to the airport and get in the airplane and fly myself. That's the difference between knowledge and working knowledge, comprehension. Now when we get into that place where we have that kind, I don't think a thing in the world about going to the airplane. Get in it. Start it. Fly it. Land it. That doesn't, I mean, I've done it for so many years.

Greg Stephens: It's second nature to you.

Kenneth Copeland: It is. I remember when I first began to learn, "I'm not moved by what I see". And I thought, hey this is the easiest thing I ever did. I've already learned that. I had to learn to believe the instruments in that airplane instead of my feelings. It took a while, but when I finally learned it, I was no longer reading those instruments one at a time. I'm sitting there. I'm looking and here it's just the same as looking outside. I read 'em all, that, that, my scan is there all the time because it's just what I do. Now, I'm that way in my Covenant life.

Greg Stephens: That's good.

Kenneth Copeland: Everything to me...

Greg Stephens: That's good.

Kenneth Copeland: Is a Covenant. Everything! I don't think without it.

Greg Stephens: Right.

Kenneth Copeland: I used to, I had to draw my attention to it, but now, everything is Covenant. And I see something and I get reminded again like I did today from what's-his-name over here, or Professor Greg.

Greg Stephens: That's okay. That's all right.

Kenneth Copeland: Of Yod-Hay-Vav-Hay

Greg Stephens: Right.

Kenneth Copeland: And I've had that faith. Just fire is on the inside of me, man.

Greg Stephens: KCBC students ask me all the time, "How do you get the stuff you get? Where do you find this stuff"? And they don't realize, like you said, flying that airplane, over 25 plus years ago, my prayer every single morning, every single night when I go to sleep, is "Reveal Yourself to me today".

Kenneth Copeland: Yes, yes, yes.

Greg Stephens: And He does!

Kenneth Copeland: Yes.

Greg Stephens: And so I can't go

Kenneth Copeland: What'd you do? You activated that Covenant.

Greg Stephens: Yeah, I can't go anywhere in the Bible without, "There He is". He'll wave at me. It's like He waves at me through the letters. Here I am! And I see Him, and every time I do, it's just, oh, look at that. Oh, oh, You're so good. And now that becomes part of me, becomes part of my arsenal to resist sickness, to resist everything that's of the curse.

Kenneth Copeland: Oh yeah. Oh yes.

Greg Stephens: I have a new arsenal. I have a new thing, a new facet of God. The seraphim are going around the throne all the time, crying "Holy, holy, holy", 'cause they see something new they never saw before. We're gonna do that through all eternity, see Him.

Kenneth Copeland: That makes me feel like my brain is about the size of that and shrinkin'.

Greg Stephens: I think about that too.

Kenneth Copeland: Oh, glory to God. Oh, I missed my chance, man.

Greg Stephens: Yeah, I know. You had it right there.

Kenneth Copeland: I had it, right. George had it too.

Greg Stephens: 'Cause Covenant is a positional reality, Brother Copeland. It's positional. And I have to take my position in that Covenant. Jesus took His position.

Kenneth Copeland: Let me ask you something, Greg.

Greg Stephens: Yes, sir.

Kenneth Copeland: "Come boldly to the throne of grace". It says right here in the Book of Ephesians. You don't think in words. You think in pictures, images.

Greg Stephens: Yes, sir.

Kenneth Copeland: I don't think D-O-G, oh that's dog. Oh yeah. No, I just say dog. There's an image in my mind. When I said that, I think about my granddaughter Emily's Rosie, is her name. And she's a little brown poodle. And Rosie... Like this the whole time. And I saw, I did, I just immediately thought of that little brown poodle. Well, when I said dog, you probably thought of your dog or a dog you know. Now, when. What do you think, where do you see yourself when you "come boldly to throne of grace"? Did you ever think about that? For years, I was on my face.

Greg Stephens: Okay.

Kenneth Copeland: Nothing wrong with that.

Greg Stephens: Oh, glory.

Kenneth Copeland: But one day I did this in my mind. I was just sitting there and I come, Lord. I humble myself and I "come boldly to the throne of grace". And I just saw myself just flat on the floor. Like I said, there's nothing wrong with that. But that was the image I had every time I prayed that. And I heard Him say, "Kenneth, get up from there".

Greg Stephens: Hmm.

Kenneth Copeland: What? He said, "In your mind, get up from there". Uh, huh? He said, "You are seated with Me in heavenly places". Now come over here on my right hand and sit down. I'm at the right hand of our Father. Now you sit down here at my right hand. You have the same authority as I have. You have My Name. And You have my Word. And you have My Father as your Father. And My God is your God. Now, sit down here, son.

Greg Stephens: You got in there, you even got in the room because of the blood.

Kenneth Copeland: Yeah, wow.

Greg Stephens: The blood is what put you in there and now you have the Name. He's given you both of those to use in the earth as part of your weapons.

Kenneth Copeland: Go ahead with it, the Word the Lord laid on your heart.

Greg Stephens: There are some hindrances to healing. I wanna talk about that real quick. The word "if" is used 1541 times in the King James Version of the Bible. This is why I was talking about it being a positional reality. Satan will use the word "if" two times in Matthew Chapter Four talking to Jesus. "If You are the Son of God". Mankind, the leper in Luke Five. "If You", I know You can, but "if You will". So mankind has if's with God. And the Father uses it two times. In John 15 and Second Chronicles Chapter Seven. Let me go over here to Second Chronicles real quickly, 'cause God had an "if". And that's the one I wanna pay attention to.

Kenneth Copeland: Second Chronicles.

Greg Stephens: Chapter Seven.

Kenneth Copeland: Oh, yeah. Oh, oh, oh. Oh yeah. This is huge. We need to be living in this right now.

Greg Stephens: Verse 14.

Kenneth Copeland: Yes sir.

Greg Stephens: "If My people" that have access to the throne of grace. And right now in America, listen to this. "If my people, which are called by My Name, shall humble themselves and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven". Notice that. I, "then will I hear from Heaven and will", there's the will of God, "forgive their sin and heal their land". Once again, we said it last week.

Kenneth Copeland: He didn't say the whole country. He just said, "If My people called by My Name".

Greg Stephens: Yes, sir. Will, I will do this. And it's an if. That's the "if" of God. And that is that "if" of putting ourselves in position of our Covenant, staying in that position of that Covenant, staying in the Covenant of our land in that position of the Founders that made a Covenant over this land to God. If we will stay in that position, His people, His Covenant people, I'm gonna heal your land. And that's a positional reality. You cannot go past the if's. Satan's gonna give you an "if". You'll come up with your own "if". But God's "if" is if you'll do this, I will heal. And notice, notice again, He didn't make a distinction. "Forgive their sin and heal their land". Sin and healing, Jesus was just as easy to save somebody it was to heal them. Didn't see a separation of the two. So healing has not been done away with.

Kenneth Copeland: Mmhmm.

Greg Stephens: At all. That's religious stinkin' thinkin'. Has not been done away with. He often links forgiveness of sin to healing because they both came from the same source. Sin and sickness and poverty are all the three of the devil.

Kenneth Copeland: The woman healed of the issue of blood.

Greg Stephens: Yes, sir.

Kenneth Copeland: Her faith made her whole.

Greg Stephens: So you go to Mark 11:23, 24. Her faith, what she said,"If I can touch the hem of His garment".

Kenneth Copeland: Has faith ever been done away with?

Greg Stephens: No, sir.

Kenneth Copeland: Well, if it has, there's nobody born again.

Greg Stephens: That's right.

Kenneth Copeland: And we're out of time.

Greg Stephens: Amen.
