Sermon note (3rd svc)
Revolution of restoration of the gospel of grace.
Bible is God breathed.
God uses personalities.
Gospel of Mark – is about Jesus the Perfect Servant.
Mark was a servant that failed and God uses him to write about the Servant who never fail.
God is restoring the gospel of grace all over the world.
Hebrew calendar has this year 777
God uses the simple and weak to confound the mighty.
The heroes in Jesus’ parables are always the lost the last and the least.
The lost son was given the most favor. The last will be first.
Believe faith is not how much faith you have. It is whose your faith is in.
You see great of Him you have great faith. You see little of Him you have little faith.
A high Priest today who hears our cries.
1 John 4:17
The Consummation of Love
Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.
You believe on Christ you have passed from death unto life.
Your judgement is pass. It is a matter of getting rewards.
Is your work make of wood?
The judge is our righteousness.
Work labour and patience.
Faith hope and love
Work of faith
Labour of love
Patience of hope
Greatest of these is love.
It is not what you do. It is why you do.
Miracles are happening.
Boldness in the day of crisis.
As He IS, so are we in this world.
Physical death have been conquered at the cross.
We have brand new body in the rapture.
Things are getting better and better for the church (church is you and me, not the building)
Have the same throne attitude. Rest until He makes our enemies the footstools
Sit. Sit until He makes all our enemies our footstools.
As He is in His health, so are we in this world.
Health is life.
A testimony from New York
A lady got severe pain in her right leg.
She heard Pastor Prince mentioned abt the testimony of the lady with a lump in her breast that as Jesus is, without lump, so is she in this world.
She declare as Jesus is, without pain in her right leg, so is she in this world.
There is no pain in her right leg! Praise Jesus!!
He is today our High Priest.
The High Priest represent the people to God. The prophets represent God to people.
Blood speaks. Blood of Jesus better things than the blood of Abel.
Jesus cannot be where He is today without our sins been put away.
God made everything and God rested.
God’s priority is in redemption
God is working because man has disturbed His rest.
Let us labour to enter into His rest.
Our High Priest sat down
A Man is now in glory. Jesus is the Man representing you and I. He sat where we sat. He knows what it is like to be a man.
The only Baby born to die.
Jesus came in the flesh. He is 100% God and 100% Man
Thank the Lord our sins are forgiven.
Our salvation is based on the eternal blood of the Son of God.
Israel is faced with no security. Our high Priest lives the power of endless life.
David went down to fight the Goliath.
He went down as a shepherd.
He took the head of Goliath back to Jerusalem and buried it.
There is a little mountain where Goliath head was there.
The greatest son of David will conquer satan and save us and redeem us from the curse.
Measure your identity in the Person of Jesus
Satan always point us to us
As long as the golden temple is on high priest head, the people are accepted.
As long as Jesus thought is pure we are accepted.
Is He righteous? So are we in this world!
The question is He good enough, not are we good enough
The holy spirit always bring our thoughts to Jesus.
We are joint heir with Jesus.
We are interested in Jesus. We preach Jesus. We want to hear sermon about Jesus.
Put Jesus as our centre. When we are discouraged, who or what we put as centre?
Fool means no knowledge
Slow to believe
To solve the above, Jesus began to expound things concerning Himself
This is no longer the word of God but the word of Christ.
Lord Jesus as You are, so are we in this world.
As you are young, so am i in this world.
As you are strong, healthy, so am i in this world.
The manifestation is not always instant.
Start acting strong, healthy, dynamic. It is based on redemption! Based on what Christ did, still stand!
The world depends on diet which creation has fallen.
Exercise is expression of faith. As He is, so am i this world. Not to get, but because you are.
Whatever it is, look to the Lord!
All you can do is to behold His glory.
2 Corinthians 3:18
But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
Grace manifest through our shortcomings.
Grace does not leave us where we are.
As you are, Lord Jesus, so am i in this world.
Jesus Walks on the Sea
Immediately He made His disciples get into the boat and go before Him to the other side, to Bethsaida, while He sent the multitude away. And when He had sent them away, He departed to the mountain to pray. Now when evening came, the boat was in the middle of the sea; and He was alone on the land. Then He saw them straining (stress) at rowing, for the wind was against them. Now about the fourth watch of the night (darkest time of the night) He came to them, walking on the sea, and would have passed them by.
Straining – stress
Jesus saw them stress
From 3am to 6am (4th watch) is the darkest part of the night. In the darkest hours, Jesus came to them.
Jesus looked down and saw them in the darkest hours
He knows what you are faced with and what you are going through. He is supernaturally watching
He sees and He knows. He is praying for you.
He is praying for your situation.
Now in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went to them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out for fear.
But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid.”
And Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.”
So He said, “Come.” And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus. But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, “Lord, save me!”
And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased.
Then those who were in the boat came and worshiped Him, saying, “Truly You are the Son of God.”
God introduced Himself as I AM
Be not afraid, be of good cheers.
Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus.
As long as your eyes are on Jesus, it is supernatural
Man can fail, God cannot.
It is time for man to stop trying to lean on our own brains to sustain ourselves. We are sinners and accept God’s verdict
What creation cannot do, redemption supplies.
What the law cannot give, grace supplies.
Do you feel been caught in trial sometimes, only Jesus can help you. Only the Lord can be the Object of worship.
As long as Peter’s eyes were on Jesus, he walked on water.
Jesus can be right beside you! What happened when your faith fail?
When you take your eyes off Jesus, He never takes His eyes off you!
Jesus on the mountain is praying lips
Jesus on the boat is presence
Jesus on the sea is saving hands
When He got back into the boat, the storm ceased.
For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones.
If you love someone you want to be one with them.
To love someone is to identify.
In all their affliction He was afflicted,
And the Angel of His Presence saved them;
In His love and in His pity He redeemed them;
And He bore them and carried them
All the days of old.
Receive His love.
God dwelled in tents. Identification
God dwelled in a temple made of stones
Jesus blood made us so clean inside that Holy spirit can come in.
As He is, so are we in this world.
1 Corinthians 6:15
Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not!
You are a member of Christ.
To preach grace takes the holy spirit, take anointing
1 John 3:2-3
Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.
We see more and more of Him we shall be like Him
See Jesus in the preaching, in the scripture.
John 17. Look at His prayer.
