How To Unlock God’s Priceless Treasures | Kynan Bridges | Life More Abundantly


KYNAN: WHAT IF YOU FOUND
A TREASURE CHEST FULL OF GOLD,
TREASURES, DIAMONDS, AND PRECIOUS METALS? HOW DESPERATE WOULD
YOU BE FOR THE KEY? TODAY WE’RE GOING TO TALK
ABOUT HOW TO UNLOCK THE PRICELESS TREASURES OF
GOD’S GIFTS THAT HE’S GIVEN YOU. DON’T GO ANYWHERE. WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK. [MUSIC] KYNAN: MEDITATE,
IN THE WORD. MEDITATE IN, THE
WORD DAY AND NIGHT. A SUPERNATURAL TURN,
A SUPERNATURAL THRUST, A SUPERNATURAL SHIFT. A SUPERNATURAL SHIFT. WE’RE IN
JERUSALEM ON SIGHT. THE SAME SPIRIT THAT
RAISED JESUS FROM THE DEAD DWELLS IN YOU, AND IT
SHALL QUICKEN YOUR MORTAL BODY. KYNAN: WELCOME TO “LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY”. I’M YOUR HOST,
DR. KYNAN BRIDGES, AND I’M EXCITED TO
BE WITH YOU TODAY. PROVERBS, CHAPTER 18,
VERSE 16 SAYS, “A MAN’S GIFT MAKES ROOM
FOR HIM AND BRINGS HIM BEFORE GREAT MEN.” “A MAN’S GIFT MAKES
ROOM FOR HIM.” WHAT’S YOUR GIFT? MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ALL
OVER THE WORLD ARE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT,
WHAT AM I GIFTED IN; WHAT ARE THE GIFTS
THAT GOD HAS GIVEN ME? YOU WILL FIND THAT YOU ARE
GOING TO EXPERIENCE LIFE BEYOND YOUR WILDEST DREAMS
IN THE AREAS OF YOUR GREATEST GIFTING. BUT WHAT IS A GIFT? WHAT IS PROVERBS 18:16
TALKING ABOUT? TODAY WE’RE GOING TO BE
TALKING ABOUT UNLOCKING SPIRITUAL GIFTS, HOW YOU
AND I CAN TAP INTO THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT,
NOT JUST ANY TALENTS, NOT JUST ANY ABILITIES. BUT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT
THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT, BELOVED, THE GIFTS THAT
GOD HAS DEPOSITED WITHIN YOU VIA THE HOLY SPIRIT. IN PROVERBS 18:16 WHEN
IT SAYS A MAN’S GIFT, THE ACTUAL RENDERING
THERE IS THE WORD, OFFERING. IT’S THE WORD, OFFERING. IN OTHER WORDS, IT’S NOT
WHAT YOU HAVE RECEIVED, BUT IT’S WHAT YOU GIVE
THAT MAKES ROOM FOR YOU. LET ME SAY THAT AGAIN. IT’S NOT WHAT
YOU HAVE RECEIVED, BUT IT’S WHAT YOU GIVE
THAT MAKES ROOM FOR YOU. A LOT OF TIMES WHEN WE
THINK ABOUT SPIRITUAL GIFTS WE’RE
THINKING ABOUT, “OKAY. YOU KNOW, I CAN SING. I CAN DANCE. I CAN BE HOSPITABLE. I CAN PLAY BASKETBALL. AND THOSE THINGS WILL
OPEN UP DOORS FOR ME. NO. NO. NO. BELOVED, A GIFT CAN’T MAKE
ROOM FOR YOU UNTIL YOU GIVE IT. A GIFT CANNOT MAKE ROOM
FOR YOU UNTIL YOU GIVE IT. GOD IS LOOKING AT
WHAT HE HAS GIVEN YOU, AND HE’S LOOKING AT WHAT
YOU HAVE OFFERED BACK TO HIM. I’LL GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE. DO YOU REMEMBER
ABRAHAM, FROM THE BIBLE, THE OLD TESTAMENT? THERE WAS A MAN
NAMED ABRAHAM. AND THE BIBLE SAYS THAT
WHEN GOD SPOKE TO ABRAHAM HE TOLD HIM, HE SAID,
“I’M GOING TO MAKE YOU THE FATHER OF MANY NATIONS. I’M GOING TO BLESS YOU. I’M GOING TO MULTIPLY YOU. I’M GOING TO MAKE YOUR
SEED AS THE SAND OF THE SEASHORE.” AND THE BIBLE
SAYS THAT ABRAHAM HAD ONE PROBLEM. HE SAID, “GOD,
I DON’T A SON. I DON’T HAVE AN HEIR. AND I’M TOO OLD TO
PRODUCE.” AND GOD GAVE HIM A MIRACLE SON, A YOUNG
MAN BY THE NAME OF ISAAC, OR IN THE HEBREW YITZHAK. AND IT, LITERALLY,
MEANS LAUGHTER, BECAUSE HIS WIFE WAS
LAUGHING AT THE IDEA THAT GOD WOULD GIVE
HER A CHILD. AND, YET, WHEN THE BOY
WAS A LITTLE BIT OLDER THE BIBLE SAYS GOD TOLD
ABRAHAM TO OFFER UP ISAAC AS A SACRIFICE. CAN YOU IMAGINE
THE DEVASTATION? CAN YOU IMAGINE
THE FRUSTRATION? CAN YOU IMAGINE HOW
AFRAID HE MUST HAVE BEEN? BUT HE KNEW THAT GOD
HAD A GREATER PLAN. AND HE OBEYED GOD. THE BIBLE SAYS
HE BELIEVED GOD. HE BELIEVED GOD. AND HE WENT, AND HE TOOK
HIS SON TO BE OFFERED UP ON THE ALTAR. AND IN MID-STROKE, THE
BIBLE SAYS THAT THE ANGEL OF THE LORD SAID,
“STAY YOUR HAND! FOR BY THIS I KNOW
THAT YOU WILL TEACH YOUR CHILDREN TO
SERVE ME.” YOU SEE, ABRAHAM COULD NOT SEE
THE FULL MANIFESTATION OF THE PROMISE UNTIL HE OFFERED
UP WHAT HE HAD BEEN GIVEN AS A GIFT. YOU SEE, IT’S NOT
WHAT YOU RECEIVE, IT’S WHAT YOU OFFER UP
THAT MAKES ROOM FOR YOU. WHAT IS IT THAT THE
LORD HAS GIVEN YOU? WHAT HAS THE HOLY
SPIRIT ENDOWED YOU TO DO? THAT WILL DETERMINE THE
LEVEL OF GRACE AND FAVOR THAT YOU’RE ABLE
TO OPERATE IN. YOU SEE, THE LORD HAD
GIFTED ME AS A TEACHER. AND I KNEW THIS VERY EARLY
ON IN MY WALK WITH THE LORD. BUT IT WASN’T UNTIL I
YIELDED MY GIFT BACK TO THE LORD THAT HE WAS ABLE
TO USE IT FOR HIS GLORY. YOU SEE, WHAT YOU YIELD TO
GOD IS WHAT GOD CAN USE TO BLESS YOU, AND TO OPEN UP
MAGNIFICENT DOORS IN YOUR LIFE. BUT MORE THAN THAT, I
WANT TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT SPIRITUAL GIFTS. WHAT DO WE MEAN WHEN WE
TALK ABOUT THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT? FIRST CORINTHIANS,
CHAPTER 12 TELLS US, “NOW THERE ARE
DIVERSITIES OF GIFTS, BUT THE SAME SPIRIT. AND THERE ARE DIFFERENCES
OF ADMINISTRATIONS, BUT THE SAME LORD. AND THERE ARE
DIVERSITIES OF OPERATIONS, BUT IT IS THE SAME GOD
WHICH WORKETH ALL IN ALL.” VERSE 12 THEN, “FOR
AS THE BODY IS ONE, AND HATH MANY MEMBERS, AND
ALL THE MEMBERS OF THAT BODY, BEING
MANY, ARE ONE BODY, SO ALSO IS CHRIST.” ONE OF
THE THINGS THAT YOU MUST UNDERSTAND IS THAT THE
HOLY SPIRIT GIVES GIFTS. NOW, LET ME CLEAR UP
SOMETHING REALLY QUICKLY. BECAUSE A LOT OF TIMES IN
THE CHURCH WE GET A BIT FRUSTRATED,
BECAUSE WE SAY, “OKAY. THIS PERSON HAS A
GIFT THAT I DON’T HAVE. THIS PERSON CAN
HEAL, AND I CAN’T HEAL. THIS PERSON CAN PROPHESY
AND I CAN’T PROPHESY.” I WANT TO CHANGE YOUR
THINKING ON THAT. BECAUSE, ACTUALLY, THE
WORD GIFT THERE WAS NOT IN THE ORIGINAL
TRANSLATION OF THE BIBLE. A MORE ACCURATE
TRANSLATION OF THAT WORD IS THE WORD MANIFESTATION. IN OTHER WORDS, THE
HOLY SPIRIT HAS MANY MANIFESTATIONS. IT IS ONE SPIRIT, HE, THE
PERSON OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, THE THIRD PERSON
OF THE TRINITY, IS ONE SPIRIT, BUT HE
HAS A MULTIPLICITY OF MANIFESTATIONS. HE IS ABLE TO MANIFEST
HIMSELF IN VARIOUS WAYS THROUGH VARIOUS PEOPLE. SO, THE KEY NOW
IS, NUMBER ONE, I HAVE TO ACKNOWLEDGE
THE HOLY SPIRIT, BECAUSE THE HOLY
SPIRIT IS THE GIFT GIVER. THAT’S NUMBER ONE. BUT NUMBER TWO, I
MUST UNDERSTAND, THAT THE GIFTS OF THE
SPIRIT ARE TO BENEFIT THE BODY OF CHRIST. THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT
ARE TO PROFIT THE BODY. YOU SEE, A LOT OF PEOPLE
ARE NOT ABLE TO OPERATE IN SPIRITUAL GIFTS BECAUSE
OF A VERY SIMPLE THING. SELFISHNESS. IT’S ABOUT THEM. IT’S ABOUT
WHAT THEY CAN DO, AND WHAT THEY CAN’T DO. AND IT’S ABOUT
WHO’S LOOKING AT THEM, AND WHO’S NOT
LOOKING AT THEM. IT’S ABOUT THE PROMOTION,
OR THE LACK THEREOF. BUT WHAT IF I TOLD YOU
THAT THE GIFTS ARE NOT ABOUT YOU? IT’S NOT ABOUT YOU. IT’S ABOUT HIM. AND THE MOMENT YOU BEGIN
TO REALIZE THAT IS THE MOMENT YOU BECOME POSTURED
TO FLOW IN THE GIFTINGS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. SEE, WHEN YOU COME OUT
OF SELF-CENTEREDNESS AND SELFISHNESS, YOU CAN BEGAN
TO HEAR THE HOLY SPIRIT SPEAK TO YOU. AND THE MORE YOU HEAR THE
HOLY SPIRIT SPEAK TO YOU, THE MORE YOU WILL BE ABLE
TO RESPOND TO THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD. LOOK. CAN I SAY THAT
ONE MORE TIME? THE MORE YOU HEAR THE
HOLY SPIRIT SPEAK TO YOU, THE MORE YOU WILL BE ABLE
TO RESPOND TO THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD. HALLELUJAH. YOU KNOW, I’M VERY
EXCITED ABOUT THIS, BECAUSE THIS IS
SOMETHING THAT IS A HEARTBEAT OF MINE. NUMBER THREE: YOU MUST
PLACE A DEMAND UPON YOUR GIFTING. YOU MUST PLACE A
DEMAND UPON YOUR GIFTING. WHERE THERE IS NO DEMAND,
THERE IS NO DEMONSTRATION. WHERE THERE IS NO DEMAND,
THERE IS NO DEMONSTRATION. GOD CAN ONLY DEMONSTRATE
WHERE THERE IS A DEMAND. IN FACT THE BIBLE
TELLS US VERY CLEARLY, IT SAYS THAT WE SHOULD “COVET
EARNESTLY THE BEST GIFTS.” GOD WANTS YOU TO REACH AFTER
THE BEST GIFTS. HE WANTS YOU TO CHASE
AFTER THE BEST THAT HE HAS FOR YOU. HOW DO WE DO THAT? BY CHASING AFTER HIM. AND AS WE CHASE AFTER HIM
WE PLACE A DEMAND ON THE POWER OF THE HOLY
SPIRIT RESIDENT WITHIN US. DON’T YOU EVER SAY, NOR
DON’T YOU EVER BELIEVE, THAT YOU ARE CHOPPED
LIVER IN THE SPIRIT, THAT YOU ARE SECOND CLASS,
THAT GOD DOESN’T HAVE SOMETHING GOOD
FOR YOU, BELOVED. THAT’S NOT TRUE. GOD HAS GREAT
THINGS FOR YOU. GOD WANTS YOU TO OPERATE
IN THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. HE WANTS EVERY ONE OF
YOU TO EXPERIENCE THE SUPERNATURAL. YOU SEE, THE GIFTS OF THE
SPIRIT DEMONSTRATE TO THE WORLD AROUND US
THAT GOD IS REAL. THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT
DEMONSTRATE TO THE WORLD AROUND US THAT
GOD IS, IN FACT, REAL. TAKE, FOR EXAMPLE, A
WORD OF KNOWLEDGE. I’LL NEVER FORGET,
RECENTLY I WAS IN AFRICA, AND I BEGAN TO GIVE WORDS
OF KNOWLEDGE TO PEOPLE I HAD NEVER MET. I’D NEVER SEEN
THEM BEFORE. WE’D NEVER
INTERACTED BEFORE. AND, YET, THE LORD WOULD
GIVE ME DIVINE INFORMATION ABOUT SOMEONE. YOU SEE, WHEN WE TALK
ABOUT A WORD OF KNOWLEDGE WE’RE TALKING ABOUT, WE’RE
TALKING ABOUT INSIGHT INTO THE PAST OR THE PRESENT,
INSIGHT INTO THE PAST OR THE PRESENT. GOD BEGAN TO SHOW ME
BY THE SPIRIT THINGS IN PEOPLE’S PASTS, OR
THINGS IN THEIR PRESENT. I ALSO BEGAN TO OPERATE
IN WORDS OF WISDOM WHICH REPRESENT INSIGHT INTO
THE PRESENT OR THE FUTURE, INSIGHT INTO THE
PRESENT OR THE FUTURE. YOU SEE, THESE THINGS
BEGAN TO SHOW THESE PEOPLE THIS MAN
DOESN’T KNOW ME; HE DOESN’T KNOW
ANYTHING ABOUT ME. HE’S NEVER MET
ME BEFORE, BUT, YET, HE KNOWS THINGS
THAT I’VE NEVER DISCLOSED. IN FACT, I’VE NEVER EVEN
TOLD MY CLOSEST FRIEND. THAT’S CALLED A
GIFT OF THE SPIRIT, OR A MANIFESTATION
OF THE SPIRIT. WHEN WE COME BACK WE’RE
GOING TO TALK MORE ABOUT THE MANIFESTATIONS
OF THE SPIRIT. BUT, BEFORE WE GO,
I WANT TO ASK YOU OUT THERE
THIS QUESTION. WHAT IS YOUR
SPIRITUAL GIFT? THEY’RE GOING
TO ANSWER THAT. WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK FOR
“LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY”. ANNOUNCER: [MUSIC]
WE’LL BE BACK WITH MORE OF LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY
IN JUST ONE MOMENT. WHAT IS YOUR SPIRITUAL GIFT? I HAVE A STRONG GIFTING IN
HOSPITALITY AND ADMINISTRATION. I’VE HEARD FROM GOD THAT MY SPIRITUAL GIFT IS A
PROVIDER AND A GIVER. I THINK RIGHT NOW THAT I’M STILL DISCOVERING A
LOT OF SPIRITUAL GIFTS, BUT ONE I KNOW I’M
GOOD AT IS SERVING. I LOVE SERVING. MY SPIRITUAL GIFT IS MY FAITH. I THINK IT’S VISUAL, LIKE, IT’S SEEING THE WORLD
IN A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE. LOVE, PEACE, JOY,
TEACHING, PREACHING, EVANGELIZING. WELL, I DON’T LIKE TO THINK
IN TERMS OF WHAT’S MY SPIRITUAL GIFT. ANY GIFTING I
HAVE IS GOD’S, AND HE USES IT
FOR HIS PURPOSE. I DON’T SEE IN
THE SCRIPTURES WHERE, UH, PAUL SAID,
“THIS IS MY GIFT, TO RAISE PEOPLE FROM THE
DEAD.” THE HOLY SPIRIT WORKED THROUGH HIM. SO, MY GIFT IS WHATEVER
HE WANTS ME TO DO AT THAT TIME. MY SPIRITUAL GIFT, I THINK, IS TO BE ABLE TO
COMMUNICATE WITH PEOPLE AND FIND A COMMON GROUND,
AND REALLY ASSOCIATE HOW I CAN CONNECT WITH
CERTAIN PEOPLE. ANNOUNCER: [MUSIC]
AND NOW, BACK TO “LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY”. KYNAN: WELCOME BACK TO
“LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY”. I’M EXCITED TO HEAR
YOUR ANSWERS TO WHAT YOUR SPIRITUAL GIFT IS. AND I’M SURE THAT YOU OUT
THERE HAVE A LOT TO SAY, AS WELL. BEFORE WE HAD THE
BREAK WE TALKED ABOUT YOUR SPIRITUAL GIFTS. WE TALKED ABOUT HOW TO
UNLOCK SPIRITUAL GIFTINGS. FIRST OF ALL, I
WANT TO DISPEL A VERY, VERY DANGEROUS MYTH, THAT
GOD CAN ONLY USE CERTAIN PEOPLE, THAT GOD ONLY
GIFTS CERTAIN PEOPLE IN THE CHURCH WITH
CERTAIN SPECIAL GIFTS, AND EVERYBODY ELSE IS
JUST CHOPPED LIVER. THAT’S NOT TRUE, BELOVED. IF YOU HAVE THE HOLY
SPIRIT LIVING ON THE INSIDE OF YOU, YOU CAN
OPERATE IN THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT. ONE OF THE KEYS TO DO
DOING THAT IS THAT YOU MUST, FIRST OF ALL,
DEVELOP A SENSITIVITY TO THE HOLY SPIRIT. DEVELOP A SENSITIVITY
TO THE HOLY SPIRIT. THE SECOND THING YOU NEED
TO DO IS TO DISCOVER HOW THE HOLY SPIRIT
OPERATES THROUGH YOU. THIS IS A VERY
IMPORTANT KEY. DISCOVER HOW THE HOLY
SPIRIT OPERATES THROUGH YOU. DON’T DISCOUNT THE UNIQUE
WAYS THE HOLY SPIRIT OPERATES THROUGH YOU. I WAS NEVER, I
WILL NEVER FORGET, I WAS TALKING
TO A MAN OF GOD, AND HE WAS SHARING A STORY
WITH ME ABOUT A WORD OF KNOWLEDGE THAT
HE RECEIVED. HE’S A VERY
POPULAR PROPHET. AND WE WERE TALKING. AND HE SAID THAT HE
WAS IN HIS BEDROOM, AND GOD GAVE HIM A DREAM. AND IN THE DREAM HE SAW
A MOLECULE IN EACH HAND. HE SAID, “THE
FAT MOLECULE, AND THE PROTEIN MOLECULE.”
THE FAT MOLECULE AND THE PROTEIN MOLECULE. IT JUST SEEMED LIKE SOME
RIDICULOUS LITTLE THING. MAYBE HE ATE TOO MUCH
MEATBALL SUBWAY SANDWICH OR SOMETHING. AND HE WENT A CONVENTION
A FEW DAYS LATER. AND AS HE WAS AT THE
CONVENTION HE SPOKE TO, I’M SORRY. GOING BACK. HE SPOKE TO A MAN, AND HE
TOLD THE MAN THAT GOD’S GOING TO GIVE HIM A
BREAKTHROUGH IN THE AREA OF FAT MOLECULES. THIS MAN WAS A
RESEARCH BIOCHEMIST. AND HE SAID, “MAN. YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT
YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT. I’M A PROFESSIONAL. YOU DON’T HAVE ANY
IDEA WHAT YOU’RE SAYING. THERE’S NO SUCH THING
AS WHAT YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT.” WELL, THIS MAN
WENT TO A CONFERENCE. AND AT THE CONFERENCE,
THEY SHARED A TESTIMONY ABOUT A RECENT
BREAKTHROUGH AS IT RELATES TO CELL RESEARCH IN THE
AREA OF FAT MOLECULES. AND THEY DISCOVERED
THAT THERE WAS SO MUCH POTENTIAL IN THE FAT
MOLECULES OF BABIES. YOU SEE, GOD CAN SPEAK
TO YOU IN PECULIAR WAYS. HE CAN WORK THROUGH YOU,
IN WAYS THAT MAYBE YOU WOULD TEND TO DISCOUNT. AND THIS IS ONE OF THE
REASONS WHY WE MUST MAKE A DECISION THAT WE ARE
GOING TO HEAR GOD. YOU SEE, YOU MUST LEARN TO
DISCOVER THE UNIQUE WAYS GOD SPEAKS THROUGH YOU. ANOTHER WAY TO ACTIVATE
SPIRITUAL GIFTINGS IS WHEN YOU SEE A PROBLEM,
RECOGNIZE THAT YOU ARE THE SOLUTION. SOMETIMES YOUR GREATEST
AGITATION IS YOUR GREATEST ANOINTING, OR YOUR
GREATEST ANNOYANCE IS YOUR GREATEST ANOINTING. SEE, WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND
THAT THESE ARE SOME OF THE WAYS THAT GOD
STIRS YOU UP, HE BEGINS TO ACTIVATE
THINGS ON THE INSIDE OF YOU, BECAUSE HE WANTS TO
UNLOCK YOUR POTENTIAL. ANOTHER THING WE MUST
UNDERSTAND IS THAT THERE IS POWER IN DOING. GIFTS ARE
CULTIVATED BY UTILIZATION. YOU SEE, THE MORE
YOU USE A GIFT, THE MORE IT GROWS. THE MORE YOU USE A
GIFT, THE MORE IT GROWS. SO, MAYBE YOU START OUT
WITH WORDS OF KNOWLEDGE, AND YOU START
OUT VERY SMALL. YOU DON’T REALLY
HEAR A WHOLE LOT, BUT HEAR, LITTLE
THINGS, A FEW THINGS, DATES, TIMES, MAYBE YOU
HEAR A NAME OF A PERSON. MAYBE YOU’RE
PRAYING FOR SOMEBODY, AND GOD BEGINS TO
SHOW YOU AN IMAGE. WELL, YOU MUST ACT ON
WHAT YOU ARE SEEING OR EXPERIENCING. THE MORE YOU
CULTIVATE SOMETHING, THE MORE IT GROWS. THE BEST PLACE TO EXERCISE
YOUR GIFTING IS WITHIN YOUR CIRCLE OF INFLUENCE. YOU SEE, IF YOU’RE TALKING
ABOUT GOING TO THE NATIONS AND PROPHESYING, AND
GOING AND LAYING HANDS, AND YOU FEEL INTIMIDATED,
START AT HOME. START, AT YOUR
PRAYER GROUP. START AT YOUR
CHURCH, YOUR LOCAL CHURCH. AND BEGIN TO ACT WITHIN
YOUR CIRCLE OF INFLUENCE, AND WATCH GOD EXPAND YOU. HALLELUJAH. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT’S
VERY IMPORTANT FOR US TO UNDERSTAND IS THAT WE
POSSESS SOMETHING THAT CAN MEET THE DEMANDS OF
THE BODY OF CHRIST. EVERY BELIEVER POSSESSES
SOMETHING THAT CAN MEET THE DEMANDS OF
THE BODY OF CHRIST. AND WITHOUT
THAT CONTRIBUTION, THERE IS A VACUUM. I’LL SAY THAT AGAIN. EVERY BELIEVER POSSESSES
SOMETHING THAT CAN MEET THE DEMANDS OF
THE BODY OF CHRIST. AND WITHOUT
THAT CONTRIBUTION, THERE IS A VACUUM. MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE NOT
LEAVING A VACUUM IN YOUR LOCAL CHURCH, A
VACUUM IN YOUR FAMILY, OR A VACUUM IN
THE BODY OF CHRIST. HALLELUJAH. THE LEVEL OF SUCCESS
YOU HAVE OR HAVE NOT EXPERIENCED IS DIRECTLY
BASED ON HOW YOU HAVE YIELDED YOURSELF, FOR GOD
TO OPERATE IN AND THROUGH YOU. YOUR LEVEL OF SUCCESS IS
DIRECTLY IMPACTED BY HOW YOU YIELD TO GOD. DO YOU YIELD TO GOD? YOU KNOW, I’LL
NEVER FORGET, I WAS READING A
BOOK YEARS AGO. AND IN THIS BOOK THEY
ASKED A PROFOUND QUESTION. WHAT WOULD JESUS DO? AND THROUGH THIS PROFOUND
QUESTION AN ENTIRE COMMUNITY WAS
TURNED AROUND, BECAUSE ANY TIME
THE OCCASION AROSE, THEY ASKED THIS QUESTION. WHAT WOULD JESUS DO? WHAT WOULD JESUS DO? OR, I’LL FRAME
IT THIS WAY. EVERY TIME YOU COME TO
A PLACE IN YOUR LIFE, EVERY TIME YOU ARE
FACED WITH A DECISION, EVERY TIME YOU ARE
FACED WITH AN OPPORTUNITY, ASK THIS QUESTION. GOD, WHAT DO YOU
DESIRE TO DO THROUGH ME? I CHALLENGE YOU. YOU’RE GOING TO SEE
ANOTHER SIDE OF YOURSELF. YOU’RE GOING TO BEGIN
TO SEE YOURSELF IN A WAY YOU’VE NEVER SEEN
YOURSELF BEFORE. BECAUSE THAT
QUESTION, BY DEFAULT, BEGINS TO UNLOCK THE
LATENT POTENTIAL AND THE LATENT POWER OF THE SPIRIT
RESIDENT IN YOUR SPIRIT THAT YOU DIDN’T
EVEN KNOW WAS THERE. WHAT DOES GOD
DESIRE TO DO THROUGH ME? VERY IMPORTANT QUESTION. HALLELUJAH. GLORY TO GOD. HALLELUJAH TO
THE LAMB OF GOD. AND THE LAST THING I WANT
TO SAY TO YOU IS THIS. WHAT ARE YOU WORKING WITH? THE PROPHET ELIJAH
ASKED THE WOMAN, “WHAT’S IN YOUR HOUSE?”
WHAT’S IN YOUR HOUSE? REMEMBER THE
PARABLE OF THE TALENTS? IT’S NOT ABOUT
WHAT YOU DON’T HAVE, IT’S ABOUT WHAT YOU HAVE. MAXIMIZE WHAT’S
IN YOUR HAND. MAXIMIZE WHAT GOD HAS
COMMITTED INTO YOUR CARE. IF YOU’RE AN INTERCESSOR,
AND YOU LOVE TO INTERCEDE FOR THE CHURCH,
MAXIMIZE THAT GIFT. IF YOU’RE SOMEONE THAT
PROPHESIES OVER PEOPLE, MAXIMIZE THAT GIFT. IF YOU’RE SOMEONE THAT
KNOWS HOW TO LAY HANDS ON THE SICK AND
THEY CAN RECOVER, I WANT YOU TO BEGIN
TO MAXIMIZE THAT GIFT. PUSH IT TO ITS
ULTIMATE LIMITS. BEGIN TO PRESS IT. BEGIN TO PLACE A DEMAND ON
THAT GIFTING OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD. AND IT’S GOING
TO INCREASE. IT’S GOING TO GROW. WHATEVER YOU
HAVE IN YOUR HAND, YOU MUST MAXIMIZE IT. YOU MUST PLACE A
DEMAND UPON IT. AND THEN YOU’RE GOING TO
BEGIN TO SEE THINGS HAPPEN IN YOUR LIFE. ONE OF THE LADIES IN MY
CHURCH SAID THAT SHE WAS JUST PRAYING ONE
DAY, AND GOD SAID, “THERE’S A PERSON IN THE
TOWN WEARING A WHITE TEE SHIRT, AND THEY’RE RIDING
A BIKE.” SHE THOUGHT, “MAN, MAYBE I’M
LOSING MY MIND. MAYBE I DRANK TOO MUCH
STARBUCK’S COFFEE.” AND, YET, SHE PUT
ON HER CLOTHES, AND SHE WENT OUT
INTO THE CITY. AND WHEN SHE WENT
OUT INTO THE CITY, SHE SAW THE VERY PERSON
THAT THE LORD DESCRIBED TO HER IN PRAYER, AND
BEGAN TO MINISTER TO THIS PERSON. AND THIS PERSON HAD
BEEN GOING THROUGH A VERY DIFFICULT TIME. THEY’D BEEN GOING THROUGH
A LOT OF STRUGGLES IN THEIR LIFE. AND THEY DIDN’T KNOW WHAT
THEY WERE GOING TO DO. AND, YET, THIS PERSON
BEGAN TO ENCOURAGE HER. SHE BEGAN TO
SPEAK INTO HER LIFE. IT HAPPENED BECAUSE SHE
STEPPED OUT ON FAITH AND DID SOMETHING THAT
SHE’S NEVER DONE BEFORE. I CHALLENGE YOU TODAY. THERE’S A TREASURE
ON THE INSIDE OF YOU. GOD HAS PLACED HIS
SPIRIT WITHIN YOU, HIS PRECIOUS HOLY SPIRIT. THE SAME SPIRIT THAT
RAISED JESUS FROM THE DEAD, THE SAME
SPIRIT THAT HE SAID, “WHEN YOU
RECEIVE THIS SPIRIT, YOU RECEIVE POWER.” PLACE
A DEMAND ON THE SPIRIT OF GOD ON THE INSIDE OF YOU. LISTEN, WHEN WE COME BACK,
I’M GOING TO PRAY FOR YOU. DON’T GO ANYWHERE. DON’T TOUCH THAT DIAL. AND YOU’RE GOING TO BE
UNLOCKED IN WAYS YOU’VE NEVER DREAMT. WE’LL SEE YOU IN JUST
A MOMENT ON “LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY”. ANNOUNCER: [MUSIC]
WE’LL BE BACK WITH MORE OF LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY
IN JUST ONE MOMENT. [MUSIC] ANNOUNCER: AND NOW, BACK
TO LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY. KYNAN: WELCOME BACK, BELOVED.
THANK YOU FOR STAYING WITH US ON “LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY.” AND I WANT TO PRAY
WITH YOU, BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT
WANTS TO UNLOCK THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT IN YOUR LIFE. AND I WANT TO SAY THIS
BEFORE I PRAY. OFTEN TIMES THE ENEMY SURROUNDS
THE AREA OF OUR GREATEST GIFTING
WITH FRUSTRATION. THE ENEMY OFTEN SURROUNDS THE
AREA OF OUR GREATEST GIFTING WITH FRUSTRATION. NOW, WHY DOES HE DO THAT? HE DOES THAT TO STIFLE AND TO
STAGNATE YOUR GIFT. HE KNOWS THAT IF YOU’RE
FRUSTRATED THAT YOUR GIFT WILL BEGIN TO
GO DORMANT. AND I BELIEVE THAT
MANY OF YOU WATCHING ME RIGHT
NOW ARE IN THAT PLACE. YOU’VE FELT A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT
OF FRUSTRATION. YOU’VE FELT, MAYBE, THAT YOUR
GIFT IS NOT APPRECIATED. MAYBE YOUR CHURCH DOESN’T EVEN
ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR GIFTING. AND YOU’RE SAYING, “GOD,
WHAT DID YOU GIVE ME THIS FOR, IF I CAN’T USE IT?” BUT I BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE A
PART OF THE ARMY OF THE LORD. YOU ARE THE GENERATION
THAT WILL USHER IN THE NEXT GREAT MOVE OF GOD.
AND I WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU TODAY, BELOVED.
AS WE GET READY TO CLOSE. STRETCH YOUR HANDS.
CLOSE YOUR EYES. FATHER, I THANK YOU FOR EVERY
PERSON WATCHING. I THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU’RE
DOING IN THEIR LIVES. I THANK YOU FOR THE ANOINTING
OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD THAT IS UPON EACH PERSON. AND JUST LIKE A TREASURE
CHEST, THE KEY IS TURNED, AND IT’S UNLOCKED, AND
THEN OPENED. GOD, I THANK YOU THAT YOU’RE TURNING A KEY
IN THEIR SPIRIT. DORMANT GIFTINGS,
DORMANT ANOINTINGS, DORMANT THINGS, LORD,
THAT HAVE BEEN RESIDENT ON THE INSIDE ARE
BEGINNING TO FLOURISH, ARE BEGINNING TO FLOW. SO, GOD,
I THANK YOU FOR THE ANOINTING, I THANK YOU FOR THE POWER OF THE
HOLY SPIRIT, AND I THANK YOU, LORD, THAT THOSE LISTENING TO ME
WILL NEVER, EVER, BE THE SAME AGAIN. WE WANT TO SEE YOU NEXT TIME,
BELOVED, ON “LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY”. GOD BLESS.

  5. False Prophets Condemned

    13 The word of the Lord came to me: 2 “Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel who are now prophesying. Say to those who prophesy out of their own imagination: ‘Hear the word of the Lord! 3 This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Woe to the foolish prophets who follow their own spirit and have seen nothing! 4 Your prophets, Israel, are like jackals among ruins. 5 You have not gone up to the breaches in the wall to repair it for the people of Israel so that it will stand firm in the battle on the day of the Lord.6 Their visions are false and their divinations a lie. Even though theLord has not sent them, they say, “The Lord declares,” and expect him to fulfill their words. 7 Have you not seen false visions and uttered lying divinations when you say, “The Lord declares,” though I have not spoken?

    8 “‘Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: Because of your false words and lying visions, I am against you, declares the Sovereign Lord. 9 My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and utter lyingdivinations. They will not belong to the council of my people or be listed in the records of Israel, nor will they enter the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am the Sovereign Lord.

    10 “‘Because they lead my people astray, saying, “Peace,” when there is no peace, and because, when a flimsy wall is built, they cover it with whitewash,11 therefore tell those who cover it with whitewash that it is going to fall. Rain will come in torrents, and I will send hailstones hurtling down, and violent winds will burst forth. 12 When the wall collapses, will people not ask you, “Where is the whitewash you covered it with?”

    13 “‘Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: In my wrath I will unleash a violent wind, and in my anger hailstones and torrents of rain will fall with destructive fury. 14 I will tear down the wallyou have covered with whitewash and will level it to the ground so that its foundation will be laid bare. When it falls, you will be destroyed in it; and you will know that I am the Lord. 15 So I will pour out my wrath against the wall and against those who covered it with whitewash. I will say to you, “The wall is gone and so are those who whitewashed it, 16 those prophets of Israel who prophesied to Jerusalem and saw visions of peace for her when there was no peace, declares the Sovereign Lord.”’

    17 “Now, son of man, set your faceagainst the daughters of your people who prophesy out of their own imagination. Prophesy against them 18 and say, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Woe to the women who sew magic charms on all their wrists and make veils of various lengths for their heads in order to ensnare people. Will you ensnare the lives of my people but preserve your own? 19 You have profaned me among my people for a few handfuls of barley and scraps of bread. By lying to my people, who listen to lies, you have killed those who should not have died and have spared those who should not live.

    20 “‘Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against your magic charms with which you ensnare people like birds and I will tear them from your arms; I will set free the people that you ensnare like birds. 21 I will tear off your veils and save my people from your hands, and they will no longer fall prey to your power. Then you will know that I am the Lord.22 Because you disheartened the righteous with your lies, when I had brought them no grief, and because you encouraged the wicked not to turn from their evil ways and so save their lives, 23 therefore you will no longer see false visions or practice divination. I will save my people from your hands. And then you will know that I am the Lord.’”

  6. I come in agreement with Brother Kynan’s prayer for myself and my children in Jesus Mighty Name Amen & Amen!!! Thank you King 👑 Jesus for Brother Kynan Bridges & ISN / Sid Roth 🙏📖❤️😇

  7. Holy Spirit gifts when utilized/manifested ===> Testimony for people, of the earth, about Jesus Christ & God power to save & heal & truth of Holy Bible Scripture.
