Pastor Keion (00:21):
Hey everybody. Welcome to another episode of Take Action. I am Pastor Henderson and thank you so much for being with us. Listen, our miracle report this week is simply this, that we are nearing the turn in our construction process here on our north campus with our kids discovery zone. As you can see, the deconstruction has started. You see how that ceiling is down, you see that floor being ripped up, you see all of the workers in there. This is our progress. This is what we’re doing and we’ve been able to do it at $28 at a time. It’s amazing what we can do with little amounts, with lots of participation. So thank you so much for helping us to do what you just saw and helping us to do what you will see because we will follow up with a miracle report again and show you what has transpired as they continue to work.

I talked to you last week about the 10 actions to take towards a miracle and I told you last week that you had to purify your heart. I told you last week that you had to speak life. I told you last week that you had to learn to appreciate the impossible. I told you last week that you had to become a copycat, which I thought was huge, that you had to imitate those who had already inherited. And number five, I told you that you had to study the word of God. Let’s start right off at number six. Make sure you text somebody to say, Hey man, pastor K is about to give us game on how to take action towards a miracle. I want you to text this link. I want you to share this link. I want you to tag somebody and I want you to get in a safe, comfortable, quiet place so you can watch this for yourself. Are you ready? Alright, here is number six. This is a good one.

Alright, here’s number six, slay the sloth. What pastor slay the sloth? Proverbs 20 and four says that the slugger or the sloth does not plow in season. So at harvest time they look but find nothing. What am I telling you? I want you to eliminate the lazy part of your personality. Come on, come on somebody. Don’t get mad at me. How many of you all have that lazy? I’m always tired. I need some rest. I got to recover. I got to get up in the morning. Whoa, whoa, whoa. I only got four hours of sleep. I’m always tired. Spokesman for yourself. Who has it? It’s always, oh, I can’t get no sleep. I just took the kids here. I just did this. I just did that, bro. Baby girl, let me tell you something. We all tired.

We all are taking our daughters to the basketball game and our sons to football practice and our daughters to cheerleading and volunteering at the church and over the book club and a full-time husband and a full-time wife. We’re all studying to go back to school. Listen, anybody who’s listening to us right now trying to take action, we’re all busy, but woe to the slugger who thinks that they’re going to have a harvest if they sleep during sowing season. If you don’t plow now, don’t expect to find anything later. And let me tell you something, you are as young as you are ever going to be. You’re not going to get any younger. You will not age backwards. You may feel better because you started to take turmeric. You may feel better because you started to exercise. You may feel better because you got stress out of your life, but your L five is still degenerating, your shoulder is still going to hurt. Eventually your knees are deteriorating as we speak. You’re getting older moment. By the moment, you are never going to get younger, which is why you have to work the works of the one that sent you while it is day for the night ist coming when no man can work. James two and 26 says, faith without works is dead.

As important as it is to resist doubt, faith alone will not get the job done. And this is why I wanted to start here because I started off the 10 step action steps to becoming closer to a miracle with faith. But faith alone won’t work. Faith with work works, faith with work works, faith with work works. No, you are not glitching. No, you are not buffering. Faith with work works. No, I am not stuttering. Faith with work works. Faith with work works a man that don’t work, don’t eat faith with work works. You can’t just sit around believing on the inside and do nothing on the outside faith, lemme say it this way. For faith to come alive, you have to take action.

If you’re waiting on the miracle today, you just can’t sit there and wait. You got to do something. When Jesus performed his first miracle in John chapter two, John says that he says to his mother, we’re attending a wedding in Cana of Galilee and the host has ran out of wine. Mary looks to Jesus to do something about it and she was expecting a miracle when she turned to the servants and then here it is, miracle Slayless law. Do whatever he says. Whatever he says, do it. I’m going to move on. Whatever he told you to do, do it. Whatever you wrote down in your journal, do it. Whatever you wrote on a sticky note, do it. Whatever you wrote in the composition book, do it. Whatever you put in your notes, do it. You got a phone and a tablet worth of to-dos. Now all you got to do is to do it.

Faith with work works. Faith with work works, faith with work, works, work, work, work, work. Take action, take action. Take action. Take action. The race is not given to the swift nor the strong, but to the one that took action. Take action. Take action. You’ve got to take action. You can’t just keep hoping and wishing and praying and crying and falling out and dancing and speaking in tongues. Take action. Take action, take action. You got to work the works of the one that sent you while it this day for the night is coming when no man can work, work, which brings me to the next phase of getting closer to a miracle. Delete doubt.

Mark five and 36, do not be afraid. Just believe these are all practical scriptures that if you just follow ’em it with change your life. Once you stand against the devil’s know he’s going to do to you what he did to eve in the garden. God says, don’t eat of the fruit in the center of the garden of good, of knowledge and evil. Okay, God, I got it. The devil comes and says, now you can eat. You won’t surely die. But see, eve entertains that doubt and now she’s living by that doubt and this is what you have to do in order to delete doubt. You have to refuse to entertain it.

No matter what the devil says, no matter what the circumstances say, no matter what your natural senses suggest to you, you still have to refuse to doubt. You have to refuse to fear. You have to continue to believe God. I’m telling you, your miracle will surely come Delete doubt. Number seven, are you ready for this one? Stop taking no for an answer. Don’t take no for an answer. Two Corinthians one and 20, all the promises of God in him are what? Yes. And in him. Amen. That means all of the promises of God. He agrees with why? Because the one person God cannot disagree with is himself. So if God promised it, it is absolutely going to happen because his promise is a yay and amen. So if you need a miracle in your body and the doctor says you’re going to need medication for life, are you going to accept it or do you fight? If God promised you he was going to heal you? Now let me tell you something. This is for everybody. Listen to me carefully. And this is very, very important because there are a lot of miracles expected of God in today’s church. A lot of stuff going lying about whether God is a healer or not. Lemme tell you something about God, I want you to hear me. Well, God heals in three ways. He either heals immediately, he heals eventually or he heals eternally.

So if you pray for somebody to be healed, and I want to say that I wish I knew why you had to go through all that you had to go through. I wish I knew why it was so hard. I wish I knew why it was so painful. I don’t always, his ways are so high above my thoughts. I don’t have answers to when people say stuff like, well, why does God let this happen? It is his permissive will. But I do know the scripture says to die is gain. And if I just speak to somebody who’s been praying for somebody who’s in their eighties and nineties and you say, God, I prayed and God healed because heaven is a reward for those of us who believe. Now it can be tempting to act like a wounded animal and tuck your tail between your legs and walk away wondering why nothing ever works out for you. But that isn’t what I’ve chosen to do. It’s not what I’ve chosen to do.

When I hear no, I still hear yes when man tells me no and I know God has told me I still hear yes, I hear yes, I hear yes and I fight in the physical realm so that I might have the correct experience in the spiritual realm and you got to have the right perspective in order to enjoy the promises of God. Because hearing no from the wrong source doesn’t mean you won’t hear yes from the right one. You see, I want you to go after your promises and I want you to go after them today. God’s yes will overcome every enemy’s. No. That is actually the definition of a miracle in God’s. Yes it is. When God’s, yes, that is the definition of a miracle. It is when God’s, yes overshadows the enemy’s. No.

Number nine, this will be a good one for all of my saints who speak more than one language in America. We’re one of the only countries that thinks that everybody who comes here needs to speak English. This is America and although our predominant language here is English and we all speak, if you go to other countries, they speak English and the native language. There’s something about America that we’re so elitist that we think we can just speak one language around the world. But I’m getting ready to just shatter that right now. Listen to me. God says the next way you’re going to receive a miracle is you have to be bilingual. At least you have to be bilingual at least what are you talking about? And I’m not talking about Rosetta Stone. See, the Bible says in Mark 1123, no, you will have whatever you speak so there is your English language or perhaps you speak Spanish or perhaps you speak Mandarin.

Perhaps you speak in the edit of evil. Perhaps you speak in languages. I know not of, but what have you learned to speak victory? What have you learned to speak in the affirmative? The Bible is clear that death and life are in the power of the tongue. So there are consequences to not having a heavenly language, a positive language. I want everybody to shout become bilingual. You have to speak in another language. God doesn’t understand that negative stuff you speak. He doesn’t understand a language of faithlessness. That’s why without faith it is impossible to please God, stop sinking your own ships with your words.

Until you learn the language of faith, you’ll never master what I’m talking about. Now I’m getting ready to make a huge statement. This is going to be hard for some of you, but nonetheless it will get you to the miracle. I hear you saying, pastor, that’s easy for you. You study the word of God. You’re a preacher. I’ve heard all of that before. Me being a preacher doesn’t make me have stronger faith than you. Me having a belief system may make me have stronger faith than you, but I don’t have faith because I preach. I preach because I have faith.

Are you ready for this powerful statement? It’s 12 words until you learn the language of faith, master the language of silence until you know how to speak content in every state you’re in, be quiet until you learn the language of faith. Master the language of silence because the devil cannot trip you up by that which you don’t speak about. You got to become bilingual. Either you learn the language of faith or you mastered the language of silence. Even Jesus, I preached a sermon sometime ago called Silence of the Lamb because when Jesus was on the cross, he had nothing to say.

When he was marching up the Via delarosa, he had nothing to say When he was being beat and bruised and they were pulling the beard from his face, he had nothing to say. When they put the crown of thorns on his head, he had nothing to say with blood streaming down his face. He had nothing to say with the count nine tails being beat on his back and the flesh being ripped away. He had nothing to say, but it wasn’t because he wasn’t bilingual, it was because he knew that at some point in your life you have to master the language of silence. But then when he stretches out his arms, he begins to say stuff like Father forgive them for they know not what they do. He starts to say things like it is finished. He starts to say things like, my God, my God, why has thou forsaken me? And he finishes by saying, father, into thy hand, I commend my spirit because he masters the language of silence until it is apropos that he gained the strength to speak the language of faith become bilingual. You got to have a secondary language. You got to be able to speak in a language that the spirit can understand.

Number 10, I’m going to recap. Number one, purify your heart, Matthew six 14. For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. For you cannot have a miracle with bitterness in your heart. Number two, speak life. Mark 1123 says, he or she will have whatever he or she says. Number three, learn to appreciate impossible. Mark 9 23, all things are possible to him. That belief, and I went through a litany of scriptures that showed whether it was the woman with the issue of blood and Jesus told her, your faith has healed you or whether it was blind bar and maeu when he received sight and Jesus says your faith had healed you or whether it was the leper who was healed and made hold and Jesus said, your faith healed. You have to learn to appreciate and expect the impossible and let your faith heal you.

Number four, become a copycat. Hebrews six and 12 says, do not become sluggish but imitate or copy those who through faith and patience, inherit the promises I want you to imitate until you inherit. Number five, study the word of God. Two Timothy two and 15 says, study to show thyself. Approve unto God a workman that needeth not be ashamed. Rightly dividing the word of truth. And we talked about how a lot of people try to skip this step. They try to reap a miracle without spending enough time in the soil, but faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. That’s Romans 10 17, slay the sloth. I want you to kill the inner lazy demon inside of you. Proverbs 24 says, the sloth does not plow in season so at harvest time they look but can find nothing because if you don’t sow, you cannot reap.

I want you to look on your computer right now. If you’re near one in the upper right hand corner, there ought to be a button that you’re going to use right now to delete doubt. Mark five and 36 says, do not be afraid. Just believe. Delete all doubt. Once you stand against the devil’s know he’ll be right there to assure you that contradicting God is the way to go. But I want you to refuse to doubt. I want you to refuse to doubt. Number eight, do not take no for an answer. All of the promises of God are yes and amen. That second Corinthians one and 20, that means that God is so right that 100% of the time he will agree with himself and if he said it, you can count on it.

Don’t take no for an answer. Number nine, become bilingual. Mark 1123 says, no. You will have whatever you speak and I told you earlier that until you learn the language of faith, you must master the language of silence. Number 10, worship While you wait. Worship while you wait. Psalms 34 and one says this, his praise will always be on my lips. I want you right now as we finish up this message, if you’re not too ashamed, I want you to spend about 15 seconds worshiping God for the fact that your heart is about to be purified and all of the drudge and debauchery and unforgiveness that the enemy has planted is about to be removed. That you are about to have a language where you speak life not only into your children but over yourself, that you’re going to start to experience and expect the impossible.

That you’re about to imitate those who have inherited, that you are about to study the word of God and show yourself and be approved. I shout you are approved. Somebody worship right now and say, I’m approved. I’m approved for the loan. I’m approved for the house. I’m approved for the position. And if nobody else doesn’t, I approve myself. Somebody shout, I’m approved, type it in the chat. I’m getting ready to slay the sloth. I’m getting ready to get rid of that lazy part of me that always makes excuses about what time I’m going to go to sleep at three o’clock because my dream is so strong, but I’m going to get up at six o’clock like I slept nine hours. Why? Because in this season I’m going after something and that’s going to lead me to the next thing. I’m deleting all doubt in my life.

I will not be afraid and I will believe and who the son sets free from that doubt is free indeed. And I’m not going to take no for an answer. All the promises of God are yes and amen. And if God said, I can have it, I can have it. Somebody shout, I believe somebody shout I receive. Those are two things you have to always put together. I believe I receive, I receive, I believe. I believe I receive, I receive. So I believe. I believe and I receive. I receive. For therefore I believe, I believe and I receive. I take no not for an answer. I’m bilingual. I speak life and I know that I will have whatever I speak and I will worship while I wait, and his praise shall continuously be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the Lord.

I want praise to be on your lips in good times. Praise to be on your lips in bad times. Praise be on your lips. Let it be out of your heart. Out of your heart shall flow the rivers of water. I want you to worship so that your walls can come tumbling down. I want you to worship so your enemies will be your footstools. If Paul and inside us did not worship in the prison, they would not have been released from that Roman jail. Some people think as long as they love God, as long as they are faithful to him, the blessings will just come. But worshiping and praising God puts a demand on God. For Psalms two and 23, excuse me, Psalms 22 and three says He inhabits the praises of his people. Wherever praise is, God is you can turn your house into a sanctuary.

You can turn your car into a tabernacle. You can turn your cubicle at the job into a worship site. You don’t even have to say it out loud. You can worship in your spirit because God understands the language of a groaner. I want you to worship while you wait and they that wait on the Lord. Sure, renew their strength, mount up with wings like eagles walk, not be weary, run and not faint. Walk and not faint and run and not be weary. Put on the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. Never seen the righteous forsaken nor seed begging for bread. I want you to watch the last two take actions over and over until this year is over because you’re going to take the 10 steps and action so that when you walk into 2024, you are a factory for miracle and expectation.

I speak miracles over your life. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen. They’re putting the giving instructions up on the screen. For those of you all who came midway through and didn’t have a chance to give in the beginning, I want you to take action. Go back and rewind this telecast and you’ll get a chance to see that our team is edited in some of the progress that we’ve made in our efforts to make sure that we’re building a cohesive, comfortable place for our youth to worship here at the Kids Discover Zone at our north campus. And you giving $28 at a time has helped us build something amazing for our youth. Take action. Listen, I love you. Merry Christmas. I’ll see you next year.
