Sermon note (1st svc)
– Pastor Prince
The year of Hesed Wisdom. Hesed is grace.
The book of Proverbs what is is desirable in man is hesed. Do justice and love hesed. Love grace.
The nature of our roles as leadership, judge, needs to do justice but love mercy (grace).
Hearing the truth once is not enough.
A 20 year pain a brother was suffering but healed instantly by Jesus. He makes all things well.
He makes the sick well the blind to see the dumb to speak and the deaf to hear.
Jesus makes all things well.
Go to Jesus first before going to doctor.
He has the first word in your life.
Wisdom from God is not like the wisdom of the world.
Wisdom will turn to profits.
A bruised reed He will not break,
And smoking flax He will not quench,
Till He sends forth justice to victory;
The Lord recruits us into His kingdom. He loves us for who we us.
He rather we be with Him than do things for Him.
Go and do thou likewise.
Do what the good Samaria did.
Do the one thing. Sit at Jesus’ feet.
God will not throw you away when you lost your music or your song.
Even when you lose your song, you don’t have a prayer left, a bruised reed He will not break
Love your husband even when he is down. Don’t cast him aside.
When the oil is not there, u smell smoke.
You don’t want to smell smoke.
A smoking flax (means lost its value), He will not quench.
He will then restore all the burnt out areas in your lives.
Hesed wisdom tells us is about us.
God loves you and knows what you are going through.
In the day of Elijah faith, God sent raven to feed him.
In the day Elijah’s depression, God sent angels and Himself fed him.
Elijah never die.
Repent means change our mind in the areas we see things
He is going to bring us to a place of victory.
Sent forth judgement unto truth. Truth brings victory!
What is the hesed wisdom God has for us?
1 Corinthians 1:20-24
Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.
For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom; but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness,
but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.
How can God maintain His righteousness and welcome sinners?
The devil knows if God varies for the sake of showing mercy, the whole throne is destroyed.
God’s wisdom is the cross.
The cross is God sending His Son.
God is the source of all righteousness
Jesus is not original Man.
Jesus is outside time. He is that He is. He did not say “was”
Learn to live Today.
Take no thoughts for tomorrow.
Live today! Make sure our mind don’t travel tomorrow.
For a sinner to be healed, there must be a payment.
Every time a miracle happened when He was on earth, it is paid by Jesus.
God opened the heaven! Heaven opened to Jesus! When you have Him in your house, heaven open to Him!
This is my beloved Son, well-loved.
You are One Person. At the cross when He died on the cross, the just for the unjust. He took all our sins.
Issac’s blood had sins.
God is able to cut a covenant with sinful man.
Abraham looked back and saw Jesus. He rejoiced in seeing Jesus
God will deal with you based on the cross.
From the least to the greatest
At the cross the devil lost its rights to roar at you.
Jesus on the cross has magnified the law. All the claims have been fulfilled at the cross.
First man who met baby Jesus, and His parents, his name is Shimon (means hear)
Even the law was happy Jesus came.
Those who boast in keeping the law today they don’t understand. We cannot even be under law for holiness.
Hanah means grace. Hanah came. Look! Look at this Baby, He is the One.
At the cross, that is the wisdom and power of God. It was paid for at the cross.
The cross is where it is paid.
Stumbling block –
A man died on the cross is cursed death.
He was crucified, not stoned.
Why the cross?
Cursed is everyone who hangs on the tree. For us to be redeemed from the curse, He has to be hang on the cross.
Fearful, anxious, u tend to fall into sin. Discouraged, unloved, rejected will cause you to sin.
There is no curse over your head
If u have obeyed, why should there be a curse.
We are not for sin.
When you are under grace, you become holy by accident.
Look at the cross.
God is righteous in making the sinner righteous
God did not compromise His throne.
The price is paid! You should wake up and realise.
Father I thank you, i humbly confess i am the righteousness of God in Christ.
1 Corinthians 1:25-27
Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
Glory Only in the Lord
For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called.
But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty;
A few days after Peter denied Jesus, he was the only one standing up. He preached and 3000 got saved.
We are not under law we are under grace
Weak does not means weak in wisdom.
Generally speaking man are stronger. Man posture is not make woman inferior to man.
Jesus rose from the dead and appeared to the woman at the tomb.
Equality of position. There is no male or female.
We are different. Be a man. Take responsibility.
He chose the weak things, the foolish things
Your answer is near you!
God chosen the base things, the despise!
We started in position of small company small place. We had nothing and nobody around us when we first started. Don’t forget where we started
Seek first the kingdom of God and all these things shall be added unto you.
Pray for everything of His influence on us.
God make His rain to fall on the just and unjust.
God raised a woman in Old Testament. He raised Deborah which means the word of God.
1 Corinthians 1:28-30
and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence. But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption—
Who did God choose?
Samson was not mentioned as strong in the bible. He was a young guy skinny. Long hair skinny. The spirit of God came on him.
God used the weak things of the world. Jaw bone of a donkey.
People escape hell and enter heaven.
The Holy Spirit helps our infirmity
He heard our groaning.
How do you groan?
God uses the simple things of the world.
Pray in the spirit and you cover everything, even the things your mind does not know.
A sigh is a prayer
Then, looking up to heaven, He sighed, and said to him, “Ephphatha,” that is, “Be opened.”
Immediately his ears were opened, and the impediment of his tongue was loosed, and he spoke plainly. Then He commanded them that they should tell no one; but the more He commanded them, the more widely they proclaimed it. And they were astonished beyond measure, saying, “He has done all things well. He makes both the deaf to hear and the mute to speak.”
Sighed towards God. God knows the spirit.
A soft tongue breaks the bone.
A bread – Jesus
Share Jesus, talk Jesus and see the strife resolved.
Blow the horn, hit the vessel
Using earthen vessel, the glory is inside
There is a joy inside. The worry and nervous part is the earthen vessel.
God wants the glory in the earthen vessel and not on his own.
It must be people who were sinners once, tasted the grace of God, and the redeeming grace to be earthen vessel in glory.
It must be earthen vessel to preach the grace of God and not angels.
