Bring It On: When to Disobey Authority

If God has already purposed His will, can our prayers change His will? Are there any steps, besides being close with God, to protect a person from demonic influences? Is it ever okay to disobey authority? Read Transcript


LET'S ANSWER SOME

QUESTIONS.

Terry: THIS FIRST IS

FROM JULIETTE WHO SAYS, "IF

GOD HAS ALREADY PURPOSED HIS

WILL, CAN OUR PRAYERS CHANGE

HIS WILL?"

Pat: JESUS SAID, YOU

KNOW, PRAY THAT YOUR FLIGHT

BE NOT ON THE SABBATH IN THE

WINTERTIME.

HE IS TALKING ABOUT THE

TRIBULATION COMING IN THAT

PART OF THE WORLD.

HE SAYS YOU CAN CHANGE THAT

BY YOUR

PRAYERS.

SO I THINK OUR PRAYERS -- I

DON'T UNDERSTAND THE

INTERPLAY BETWEEN US AND

GOD, BUT OUR PRAYERS DO MAKE

A DIFFERENCE.

BUT THE WILL OF GOD DOES

STAND.

HE HAS A PLAN AND A WILL

THAT WE'RE NOT GOING TO

CHANGE.

AND JESUS HIMSELF SAID, FOR

EXAMPLE, THE TIME I COME

BACK, THE DAY, NOBODY KNOWS,

NOT EVEN THE ANGELS.

THERE ARE CERTAIN THINGS THE

FATHER HAS KEPT TO HIMSELF.

WHAT WE DO WON'T HAVE ANY

EFFECT ON IT.

BUT DO I KNOW THE MYSTERIES,

THE INTERPLAY BETWEEN MAN

AND GOD, NO.

BUT WE KEEP TRYING TO

LEARN.

Terry: KAREN SAYS, "ARE

THERE ANY STEPS BETWEEN MAN

AND GOD THAT CAN PROTECT MAN

FROM DEMONIC INFLUENCES?"

Pat: READ THE WORD AND

SPEAK, SPEAK.

SATAN, I BIND YOU AND THE

FORCES OF EVIL.

DON'T HESITATE TO USE THOSE

WORDS AND MEAN THEM.

IN THE POWER OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

THE OTHER THING IS, BE

FILLED WITH THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

BE ANOINTED BY THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

WALK IN THE SPIRIT.

PRAY IN THE SPIRIT.

LIVE IN THE SPIRIT.

IN THAT SPIRITUAL REALM, YOU

WILL HAVE AUTHORITY OVER

DEMONIC POWER.

Terry: AND PRAISE, I

THINK, TOO.

Pat: ABSOLUTELY.

Terry: A VIEWER

SAYS, "IS IT EVER OKAY TO

DISOBEY YOUR AUTHORITY?"

Pat: LOOK AT WHAT THE

APOSTLE PETER SAID.

WHETHER IT IS RIGHT FOR YOU

TO OBEY GOD OR OBEY YOU,

YOU'VE GOT TO DECIDE.

THE CIVIL AUTHORITIES TOLD

THEM THEY COULDN'T SPEAK,

AND THEY SAID WE CANNOT BUT

SPEAK THE THINGS WE HAVE

SEEN AND HEARD.

Terry: GAIL SAYS, "I

HAVE VISITED CHURCHES WHERE

THE WHOLE CONGREGATION

SPEAKS IN TONGUES WITHOUT AN

INTERPRETER, DOESN'T IT SAY

NO MORE THAN ONE OR TWO

SHOULD SPEAK AND NOT WITHOUT

AN INTERPRETER.

AND ALSO DOESN'T 1

CORINTHIANS SAY EACH ARE

GIVEN DIFFERENT GIFTS, SO

WOULDN'T ALL HAVE THE GIFT

OF TONGUE TONGUES."

Terry: THERE ARE TIMES

IN A CHURCH WHERE THERE IS

PRAYER, AND PEOPLE ARE

QUIETING PRAYING --

Pat: RAG E PRAYING IN

THE SPIRIT, AND PRAYING IN

THEMSELVES.

BUT THERE IS THE ABILITY TO

BRING MESSAGES, AND THERE IS

THE ABILITY TO WORSHIP GOD

IN THE SPIRIT.

ALL OF US WHO ARE

SPIRIT-FILLED CAN PRAY IN

THE SPIRIT, IN TONGUES.

BUT IF THEY'RE PRAYING, AS

TERRY SAID TO THE LORD, AND

THEY'RE ALL PRAYING

TOGETHER, THAT'S OKAY.

BUT IF YOU'VE GOT EVERYBODY

BRINGING MESSAGES AT THE

SAME TIME, THEN IT IS

CHAOS.

I DON'T KNOW WHICH ONE YOU

WERE TALKING ABOUT.

Terry: AVERY SAYS, "I'M

A HAIRDRESSER, AND I LIVE

PAPAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK, AND

THE TIPS I RECEIVE HELP GET

BY.

I WAS WONDERING, IS IT WRONG

TO CLAIM MY TIPS AT THE END

OF THE YEAR FOR TAXES?

I'M AFRAID IF I DO, I

WOULDN'T GET MUCH BACK AT

THE END OF THE YEAR?"

Pat: EVERYBODY HATES TO

PAY TAXES, BUT THE TRUTH IS,

YOUR TIPS ARE TAX ABLE

INCOME.

GOD WILL BLESS YOU.

Terry: DON'T BE AFRAID

OF GIVING GOD WHAT HE ASKS

FOR AND HE'LL GIVE YOU ALL

YOU NEED.

Pat: TAX EVASION IS ONE

OF THE THINGS THEY PUT YOU

IN JAIL FOR.

YOU WOULD

Terry: EMMA SAYS, "I'VE

BEEN STRUGGLING OVER THIS

QUESTION, IF A CHRISTIAN

DIES LOVING AND BELIEVING IN

CHRIST AND YET WITH A DRUG

ADDICTION AND THE ACT OF

USING, WOULD HE GO TO HELL

BECAUSE HIS DRUG USE IS AN

ACT.

PLEASE ANSWER."

Pat: WHY WOULD YOU TAKE

A CHANCE?

IF YOU KNOW TAKING DRUGS IS

WRONG AND YOU ABUSE YOUR

BODY.

BUT DOES GOD FORGIVE YOU?

MAYBE THE THIEF ON THE

CROSS, AND HE SAID, LORD,

REMEMBER ME.

AND JESUS SADE SAID, THIS

DAY YOU'LL BE WITH ME IN

PARADISE.

THERE IS SOMETHING CALLED A

DEATH-BED REPENTANCE.

BUT YOU'RE TAKING DRUGS AND

YOU PASS OUT AND YOU DIE --

WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?

THE ANSWER IS, I WOULDN'T DO

IT.

BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS

CHRIST AND YOU SHALL BE

SAVED -- THAT'S WHAT THE

BIBLE SAYS.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
