KENNETH: Hello everybody.
Welcome to the believers voice of victory broadcast. Father, we
thank you today, we give you praise and thanksgiving. We are
so thrilled with what all of last week and the wonderful
things that you brought us through Dr. Jackson and today
and yesterday and today and the rest of this week. Glory to God.
Our hearts are open. We’re so hungry. Our faith is hungry.
Glory to God! And we give you praise and honor and glory on
this broadcast today. In Jesus’ name. Amen. Would you join me in
welcoming Dr. Avery Jackson on this broadcast today! Oh, praise
God. Let’s go to a 1st Thessalonians chapter 5 and our
golden texted is in that 23rd verse. But let’s back up here.
The great apostle is teaching the body of Christ and giving
them line on line, ideas and concepts. Warnings, don’t do
this, do this. And he said But of the times and the seasons,
brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. You yourselves
know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in
the night. I don’t have to tell you these things, but I need to
remind you these things. So now let’s go to here in the well the
15 verse. See that none render evil for evil unto any man; Now
that’s big. We’re talking about your health now and walk in
love. See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever
follow that which is good, both among yourselves, or everybody
there in the church or your family ought to be living this
way, but to everybody else, I mean, this is not, Sunday stuff.
There’s seven day a week to rejoice evermore. Now he just
sticks this one. Right? Right in there. See he’s saying that
don’t be rendering evil for evil. What do you do when
somebody does something ugly to you? You rejoice! Like Doc said
yesterday. Laugh, laugh at it, Ha Ha Ha! I’m fixing my brain.
He talks about endorphins. I call them
dolphins. I got to get my dolphins jumping. I got to get
them moving. Rejoice Evermore. Pray without ceasing. The only
way you can do that is praying in the spirit. You run out and
about 10 minutes and what to pray in your natural mind, but
you can pray continually. In the spirit of God. I’ve found out
and been blessed. I learned this from Brother Hagan, but you can
be standing in the grocery line and standing there praying in
the spirit, just praying under your breath or something. Just
praising saying, I just edify myself today. I’m just rejoicing
here in this store. Then if he’d be like Todd white, you have a
healing meeting and everything. Give thanks in everything. Give
thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning
you. Quench not the Spirit. Despise not prophesyings. Prove
all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all
appearance of evil. And the very God of peace sanctify you
wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit, your whole soul,
that’s your mind, your will and the emotions part of you. Be
preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it. Brethren,
pray for us. Don’t leave out praying for your pastor. Don’t
leave out praying for the ministry. Don’t leave out and
don’t, don’t leave that part out. It is so vitally important
that we become, if you’re in the congregation of a church, you
don’t go there just to draw on the pastor. No, you put
something in that church. I’m not talking about just to get
just your financials. Of course, that’s vitally important. That’s
where you tithe. But the big thing is. That’s your church and
you put something in there. You pray for the pastor, you don’t
fuss all the way to church and then put your smile on just, you
know, Hello everybody. You make your pastor laugh a lot. Praise
God. Thank you Jesus. DR. JACKSON: So it’s kind of
interesting though, how kind the Lord is to us even in this
instruction because he knows that when we honor others, our
pastor and when we’re kind of others, it’s protective and our
mind and our physical body, it’s completely protective. So he’s
saying, look, I care about you. I love you. I need for you to do
these things so that you don’t mess yourself up. And what he’s
speaking of is in your frontal lobe and prefrontal cortex. When
information comes in, someone cuts you off or they say
something you, that’s not right. You analyze it. And from there
it goes to an area called the hypothalamus. It’s a relay
station. And from there all of the sympathetic systems and the
immune system is activated. Well, if you’re angry because
your brother did something wrong, then what happens is that
brain, a system goes to work and a cascade occurs and now you
have these chronic stress hormones that increases your
blood pressure and now it has a physical effect on your body.
And so now you can, it can affect your health. So there are
studies that show brain studies that show also when you give
that the pleasure centers in your brain light up way more
than when you receive. So again, even though we’re blessed to get
more blessed to give, and it really is more blessed and it’s
more healthy, it’s literally more healthy based on the brain
studies that are out there regarding, you know, giving
versus the receiving. KENNETH: I can see that. This is what I was
thinking as I was reading the scriptures and got carried away.
But I can see what at the first sign of symptoms of this or
that. Go right back here. Go right back to the fundamentals.
This is where your main health is, don’t push this and don’t
mess with it and mess with it until you wind up in Dr
Jackson’s office. Amen. Thank God for him and thank God that
he practices this. Amen. I’ll tell you, it just comes more
clear and more clear and more clear. The more we talk about it
and how important this whole, insight into life really, really
is. DR. JACKSON: Yes, sir. You know it’s just an honor to have
the opportunity to learn about a little bit of what God knows
about just a smidge as it relates to science and what he’s
done in our lives and in the brain because the brain controls
all the bodily functions and it talks to all the cells and you
know there’s two just quick scriptures that go right to the
brain, especially in the area of seizure and mental disorder that
I just want to point out if I can. One is Isaiah 53:5 and then
the other one is Luke 4:18. But he was wounded for our
transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the
chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes
we are healed. And then Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is
upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel
to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to
preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of
sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
The definition for bruise in this context to tear in pieces,
to break forth, to distort, to convulse, convulsion is a
seizure. A seizure is a chaotic electrical activity, which can
be expressed from the brain as muscle convulsions or
contractions. The Mayo Clinic article talks about a grand mal
seizure. It’s caused by a chaotic activity. And it leads
to loss of consciousness. And as we all know, when a person
shakes tonic-clonic or generalized tonic clonic seizure
activity, and what’s interesting about that is the deliverance of
all of the pathology, if you will, in the in brain and in the
mind that he’s taken for us. So he understands all of those
issues that are oftentimes unseen in the medical world. You
know, those are the phobias and the other issues that we have in
the mind and all the brain issues that we have that lead to
the physical issues. You know, we talked about high blood
pressure and how that thoughts and being angry because somebody
cuts you off, right? how that literally affects your blood
pressure, blood pressure goes up. Well Dr Herbert Benson,
Harvard, he was the first to coin a phrase called the
relaxation response. 60 years ago there was a gentleman who
coined the phrase the fight or flight syndrome in the same
office. But so Herbert Benson said, you know, I’m taking care
of these patients. They all have high blood pressure and the
reason why high blood pressure is so important. It’s because of
the 10 leading causes of death in the United States. High blood
pressure, is a component of at least four of those. So it’s
really so person cuts you off and there’s
no control. There’s no time in the word. So you get angry,
you’re reactive, blood pressure goes up and then you have these
problems. And so he saw that high blood pressure was high in
some of the patients that came to his office. He’s a heart doc,
cardiologist, so he puts them on some medication. I mean, that
was the right thing to do. But when he, when they get home,
they relax. Blood pressure drops, drops too low. He says,
wait a minute, I don’t, I don’t get this. I’m treating them,
prescribing them the way that I’m supposed to, blood
pressure’s too low now. What did I do wrong? So he analyzed
this and found out that in fact the stress that they bring to
seeing the white coat and the potential bad diagnosis or bad
report is enough to shoot their blood pressure up. So the
question is, do you mean that just thought affects the
physical body? KENNETH: Oh Absolutely! Yeah. Whoa, Praise
God. Now flip over on the other side of that with what exercise
does to physical exercise and praying in the spirit and so
forth, does to the blood pressure. DR. JACKSON: So for
physical exercise, it has a physical response. There’s
certain hormones that are, endorphins are released, the
mechanical side of exercise will decrease your blood pressure and
your brain responds to the mechanical side. It’s just a
wonderful release. Dopamine levels go up and those are
transmitters in the brain and chemicals that give you a sense
of pleasure or a sense of belonging, a sense of
accomplishment. And that piece is wonderful in terms of praying
in your heavenly language. University of Pennsylvania has
done some studies showing that when you pray in your heavenly
language, the areas of the brain that normally light up when
you’re communicating non verbal or verbal communication, when
you’re moving your mouth, you’re forming sentences that normally
light up. None of those light up. When you pray in your
heavenly language, none them. So then you say, well wait a minute
doesn’t make any sense if I move my mouth and the frontal lobe
blood flows to the frontal lobe, which controls my mouth
movement. You know, when I’m normally talking or even praying
in my English, but when I pray and the heavenly language still
moving my mouth still hearing the sounds and the frontal lobe
is silent. KENNETH: So it’s coming out of your spirit. DR.
JACKSON: Yes sir. Yes sir. KENNETH: Well, you know, the
Russians back during the days of the Soviet Union, they did
experiments on Pentecostal people, they did some pretty
nasty things to them. And they kept experimenting on them they
just fried their brains and made just vegetables out of them. But
someone would come in and pray and they’d just go to praising
God just like nothing had ever happened but their brain was
almost nonfunctional and it caused them to realize, hey, we
don’t need to be doing this because these people or the
kinds of people we want, they don’t ever get drunk. They
always show up on time. They’re healthy people, let’s put them
to work. So they put them in places where nobody wanted to
be. They put them up in Siberia and they put them up working on
highways. And of course they just caused a revival everywhere
they went. But it was the fact that what turned and changed
their minds, that they saw that this was supernatural and that
it just violated every medical thing, that they knew up to that
time. Yeah. Praise God. DR. JACKSON: Praise the Lord!
KENNETH: That is so amazing! DR. JACKSON: Yeah. Yeah. When you
are praying in your heavenly language, your blood on a pet
scan to certain kinds of a cat scan, as opposed to having the
blood go to the front of the brain, it goes to the prial area
and the sides of the brain, which are the receptive sides.
Right? So what’s really interesting is that you’re
hearing from an interacting in a more of a passive state and
listening to the Holy Spirit, but yet you’re still being able
to speak and you’re, and make the wonderful sounds that you
make when you pray in your heavenly language. KENNETH: That
is so Amazing! DR. JACKSON: It’s amazing. KENNETH: Wow DR.
JACKSON: Yes sir. All right. So the other question is, So death
can be caused by thought? And it’s true, it can be caused by
thought, right. And that’s why in 1st Thessalonians, you know,
the Lord is telling us, he is just saying, you can’t do this
because you’re destroying yourself. There are autoimmune
disorders that when you get angry or if there is a
self-condemnation probably from something that happened to you
when you were six, seven, eight, nine, ten, don’t remember the
way your brain works is you develop these loops and the
physical structure, physical loop is a circuit of papes. But
then these loops go where they get processed and they go to
your mind, which is separate from your brain. And so now when
you see the world, you see the world filtered through those
hurts. And so you become angry and more
reactive because someone did something to you. And
now the Lord is saying, here, don’t do that.
Don’t follow. Use your frontal lobe. Use a piece that
I’ve given you, believe in me, trusted me, I’ll take care of
you. And we can undo those hurts way back there that you can’t
even really see or identify in your consciousness. The
conscious mind. And the reason being is because I love you so
much. I don’t want you to hurt yourself and activate your
immune system in the wrong way. You know, activate, activate
these antibodies, these antibodies are, they are some
serious army. I mean, talk about an army, they can react in
milliseconds to any foreign body. And so God created those.
So if there’s an infection that enters, we can get rid of it
right away. But if your immune system gets turned on you,
what’s your autoimmune disorder orders like multiple sclerosis,
ALS, multiple drug allergies because of what happened in the
past. Maybe self-condemnation, maybe you know, other issues.
And so you’re not aware of it, but your immune system is revved
up to such a degree that it reacts when it’s not. It
shouldn’t react. And that can be problematic. KENNETH: Praise
God. Listen to that. Now this occurred to me, in severe cases,
you’re talking about PTSD. DR. JACKSON: Yes sir. KENNETH:
Soldiers. DR. JACKSON: Yes sir. KENNETH: Firemen. Policemen. DR.
JACKSON: Yes sir. DR. JACKSON: People that that are in that in
a very dangerous environment, seen things no human should have
to see. DR. JACKSON: Yes sir. KENNETH: So now you take someone
like that that’s suffering from that Dr. Jackson. Where do they
go? Now I’m talking about somebody that knows God. DR.
JACKSON: Yes sir. KENNETH: Born again, child of God. DR.
JACKSON: So I’ll mention Caroline Leaf who is a friend of
mine and she’s done extensive work on PTSD and brain injury
and traumatic brain injury has a lot to say about that. And so
we’re actually forming, she informed an integrated mine team
that are trying to answer these acute questions because right
now we have psychiatrists thank for them. We have psychologists,
thank God for them, but connecting directly the
biomedical model, which is our way of training us physicians
with the spirit and the soul, mind will and emotions so that
when we treat someone, we’re looking from God’s perspective,
we have to use The Holy Spirits has to help us on that. KENNETH:
Oh yeah. DR. JACKSON: Right? And so that we can give answers that
are very specific to that individual and we can only do
that and address all three parts of who we are from God’s
perspective. KENNETH: You still have to get him laughing again.
DR. JACKSON: Yes sir. You’re right. KENNETH: You’re going to
have to get him laughing again. DR. JACKSON: That’s right.
KENNETH: And change the whole inner manage environment. I can
see that. DR. JACKSON: The peace that passes all understanding.
So if the Lord says we have his peace, he says, take my peace.
So if we really take his peace, it should, that peace should
apply to any situation, no matter how bad it should,
overcome it and overpower run it down so it’s not destructive in
our brains and in our minds anymore in our bodies. KENNETH:
Praise God. Hallelujah. Amen! Let’s get back. You were talking
last week about your own exercise programs and regimens
and things that you do. I would like to have you touch on that
again so that it sounds so simple. Man, come on. Could it
be that easy? I mean but people think exercise is hard. I’ve got
to go in there and sweat for two hours that day is coming when
that will be enjoyable. But that’s not were you start. Amen!
and particularly someone like Dr. Jackson that he lives a very
intense lifestyle. But as far as exercises is concerned, it’s
sedative because he stands in one spot for hours and hours and
hours. And his spirit man is deeply engaged and his brain is
engaged, which is more tiring than physical exercise. And he’s
a tired man when he gets done. But that cannot be the excuse
for violating the very knowledge that you know and live by. DR.
JACKSON: Yes sir. You’re right. KENNETH: And that’s what the
rest of us did. And I paid a price for it and thank God. Now
I believe in my way through the mess I made and God is so good.
And you know, he put up with stuff that i wouldn’t have put
with. He did. But get back into this, I can’t get away from how
much we need to hear you say these things again. DR. JACKSON:
So, and you, when you mentioned about the sedentary lifestyles,
so there’s a 2.6 million people annually that die from heart
attack and stroke and cardiac issues. And so, and the majority
of those people had sedentary lifestyles, working six to eight
hours, either sitting a day or standing. And so you have to
battle that with about 300, roughly 250 to 300 minutes of
some cardiovascular activity daily. And so that’s 45 minutes
to roughly an hour. But you can make it really fun. And so what
I do is I get home, am I talking to my wife? I do my jumping
jacks for 10 minutes, well 11, I set it for 11. So that way if I
want to stop, I can stop for like a couple seconds to get
back to him. Right. And it comes out. So it’s 10 minutes of
jumping jacks. Right? Oh, and then I do, I’m gonna do a five
minute plank, KENNETH: 11 minutes, DR. JACKSON: So, 11
minutes! Right. Right. Exactly right. Five minute plank. But
that not it’s a full two and a half minute plank and then I’ll
do a side plank and switch. It makes it easier, right? And then
in the bathtub, 20 minutes of core where I’m doing a crunch
and then in the morning, I won’t do the bathtub piece, but I’ll
do the other two. So that’s, that’s one really quick. It
takes me 20 minutes. KENNETH: So 20 minutes of exercises. DR.
JACKSON: For an hour and then twice, right? So then you’re,
you’re at 40, almost 45 minutes. KENNETH: So you’ve replaced
that sedentary effect. DR. JACKSON: Completely reversed
it. KENNETH: It’s that simple and we’re out
of time again. ANNOUNCER: We hope you enjoyed
today’s teaching from Kenneth Copeland Ministries, and
remember Jesus is Lord.
