Sermon Note (3rd svc)
⁃ Pastor Prince
Young ones are exposed to things that the devil is not thinking they are too young for it. What makes you think they are too young to receive the Holy Spirit ?
Benjamin Generation who will share the same mother. Joshua generation. A generation born in atmosphere of miracles.
They saw how God brought great miracles. He brought water out of rock!
They were born in the atmosphere of miracles!
New generation do not know the word impossible but know the word Him-possible!
Look at what the devil is doing and reverse it. The devil is always playing catch up.
The people of God knows that invisible is greater and eternal!
New strands of healing God is doing !
We are in the best of generation.
We do not need to depend on the ways of the world.
We delight in God’s work!
We go back to God’s manufacture handbook
The Lord will raise upon you and the glory will be seen on you.
There is a glory that can be seen upon you.
They are like the trees planted by the rivers of water.
Planted means someone cares and watch over and attending this tree!
He shall bring forth his fruits in his season. His leaf shall not wither. The leaf are for medicine. The leaf shall not wither means our health shall not wither.
You will not be like a dried prune ! Whatever you does prosper! Even your mistakes prosper!
Whatever i do prosper! Believe this!
“Greed” for the things of God!
God’s way is to prosper us in everything we do!
Jesus is visiting the young people. This is the final generation! The Lord is coming back soon!
Russia will come down to attack Israel. This is in the bible. We know the times is end time.
This generation will not pass away till all things fulfil.
Darkness will cover the earth but the glory of the Lord will raise on us and seen on us. The contrast makes it even brighter.
Children are not able to have moral compass
If the Son therefore shall make you free, you shall be free indeed!
The time of darkness in Israel, the leaders fell. They were oppressed by the evil spirit
In the midst of darkness, He has provided Him a king! His provision is always greater than the need !
All of us are in the generation. We shall see young Davids been raised.
When the prophets came to his house, his father did not even think of him (David)
But he thought of his father.
In the midst of all these things, we know that God is raising many Davids, Esthers and Ruths.
10 spies had bad reports. They saw their problems will eat them up.
Joshua and Caleb had good reports. They said the Lord is with them! They said the problems are breads for them! They saw their giants as food!
If (established condition; Since) the Lord delights in us, we shall enter the land!
Joshua and Caleb had different spirits.
Caleb at 85 asked Joshua for a land full of giants. He stopped growing old because he started believing God.
and said to the men: “I know that the Lord has given you the land, that the terror of you has fallen on us, and that all the inhabitants of the land are fainthearted because of you.
The people of Jericho were afraid of Israel. 40 years they never came.
The enemy you were afraid of is afraid of you!
It is not who you are, it is Whose you are!
Evil spirits are afraid of you before you even came near.
For we have heard how the Lord dried up the water of the Red Sea for you when you came out of Egypt, and what you did to the two kings of the Amorites who were on the other side of the Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom you utterly destroyed.
And as soon as we heard these things, our hearts melted; neither did there remain any more courage in anyone because of you, for the Lord your God, He is God in heaven above and on earth beneath.
God gave victory to Israel!
In the midst of darkness, God is working on someone the work of grace!
Grace conquered a harlot’s heart.
Spies tell how big the might of the army, but these 2 spies talked about God’s grace. They said and all the lands were afraid of them.
Covenant – God cut the covenant with this Man, Jesus, and we are the beneficiaries.
God as divine and Jesus as Man. That is why Jesus had to die on the cross. So the blessings will keep on keeping on in our lives!
Our covenant is founded on the blood of Jesus Christ!
Now therefore, I beg you, swear to me by the Lord, since I have shown you kindness (hesed), that you also will show kindness (hesed) to my father’s house, and give me a true token,
Grace triumphs in darkness!
God has provided Him a king! God will always provides!
In the every place where sin seems to reign, grace super abounds
The sacrifice is nailed to the cross!
We will see the goodness of God in the land of the living because of the cross
Come into the ark. Jesus is inside. So He said come. He has gone in and saw that it is good. Come means invite us to Himself.
When He said go, He is behind.
Because of the cross, God will turn things around.
You and your house.
Midnight is the darkness time.
At midnight, when He sees the blood He will pass over us.
Now the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you; and the plague shall not be on you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt.
The life of the flesh is in the blood.
The plague will not be on us to destroy us.
Understand the value of the blood.
When I see the blood, i will pass over you. I will not even allow the disease to destroy you.
It is for God to see the blood.
What better blood than the blood of Jesus.
There is a voice in the blood.
First mention of blood in the bible tells us blood has a voice.
to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel.
Blood of Jesus speaks of forgiveness forgiveness! Forgiveness on all who has sinned against My Father. Protection protection!
Pastor Prince was a relieved teacher in charge of Primary 4 class. He loved teaching. There was a cute girl who was very talkative. One day she was absence. During his prayer time (he just came out of depression), this girl came out to him when he was praying. He prayed the blood of Jesus to cover her. Jesus’ blood has remitted all our sins and the blood of Jesus protects us
She finally came back one day. He asked what happened to her. She said she “give people catch”
The police came and said she was involved in the Adrain Lim’s kidnap. They went through satanic ritual.
This girl was caught by him. She said a lady came to her and she smelled something in the mouth and she followed her. This was satanic.
That afternoon they were praying all kind of sounds and she was behind. They were praying to their gods. The man said the “gods don’t want her”
It was at that time Pastor prayed for the blood of Jesus covers her.
She was delivered, completely free and not injured at all.
There is something about the blood of Jesus
1. Remit our sins
2. Not allow the plague to destroy us
Rahab had faith in God. She wanted her family to be saved as well!
and spare my father, my mother, my brothers, my sisters, and all that they have, and deliver our lives from death.”
Believed on the Lord Jesus Christ and we shall be saved and our house!
A lamb for a household
Speak to all the congregation of Israel, saying: ‘On the tenth of this month every man shall take for himself a lamb, according to the house of his father, a lamb for a household. And if the household is too small for the lamb, let him and his neighbor next to his house take it according to the number of the persons; according to each man’s need you shall make your count for the lamb.
God’s provision is always greater than our sins.
So the men answered her, “Our lives for yours, if none of you tell this business of ours. And it shall be, when the Lord has given us the land, that we will deal kindly (hesed) and truly (emet) with you.”
Then she let them down by a rope through the window, for her house was on the city wall; she dwelt on the wall.
Rahab mentioned 3 times in New Testament
Justified by faith (the door)
Justified by works in front of men (window speaks of perspective)
Live in the world but not of the world.
Have a heavenly outlook
Jesus came lowly. He lived as carpenter. He came humble.
Israel rejected Him
He died for our sins. That is the door.
Jesus came to conquer our hearts. He won us by love!
The 2 spies were hiding from the people of the world.
When Jesus comes again, He comes in white horse and not donkey! Across Him is King of kings and Lord of Lords!
First coming –
He came to save (to preach the acceptable year of the Lord)
Second coming –
He came for His rights of the whole earth
To preach the acceptable years of the Lord,
The day of vengeance of our God
The rapture is not second coming of Christ.
We who are alive and remain will be transformed and caught up to meet the Lord in the air.
We are to live ready.
When it happens, we will not be tired, bored, depressed or grow old or sick again!
We will be in the new glorified bodies forever and ever!
When Jesus returns (2nd coming), His feet will touch down in Mount of Olive
Prayer changes things!
Prayer is actually allowing God to come in
Enforce the covenant so that the plague will not be there to destroy us.
Don’t take things for granted and take protection for granted.
Pray for protection.
So the men said to her: “We will be blameless of this oath of yours which you have made us swear, unless, when we come into the land, you bind this line of scarlet cord in the window through which you let us down, and unless you bring your father, your mother, your brothers, and all your father’s household to your own home.
Make sure your family is all behind the blood! The line – the hope (tiqvah)
Red rope – picture of the blood of Jesus!
The blood is on her house.
Pray the blood covers our family.
They will be saved.
The blood is for God’s view.
They conquered Jericho without firing a shot. Joshua said spare Rahab and her household.
They shouted and the walls came down.
The walls fell outward and not inward.
One part of the walls stood firm. Rahab’s house stood firm!
When everything else is shaken, when we build our house in the Lord Jesus Christ, we shall not be shaken!
There shall be no evil before us nor any plagues come on us.
And Joshua spared Rahab the harlot, her father’s household, and all that she had. So she dwells in Israel to this day, because she hid the messengers whom Joshua sent to spy out Jericho.
Locusts- picture of demon’s army
Moses asked when they want the frogs to be out and they said tomorrow !
And Moses said, “We will go with our young and our old; with our sons and our daughters, with our flocks and our herds we will go, for we must hold a feast to the Lord.”
Then he said to them, “The Lord had better be with you when I let you and your little ones go! Beware, for evil is ahead of you. Not so! Go now, you who are men, and serve the Lord, for that is what you desired.” And they were driven out from Pharaoh’s presence.
Your child, the real child is inside. The real person is the soul. Why do we care more for their intellect, health? The real person is the soul. Do you care for their souls? Have you prayed for their salvation?
You and your house! There is power of God to fulfil
Shall the prey be taken from the mighty,
Or the captives of the righteous be delivered?
But thus says the Lord:
“Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away,
And the prey of the terrible be delivered;
For I will contend with him who contends with you,
And I will save your children.
Even though he is a lawful captive, he can be delivered!
Devil hates us because we are made in the image of God
We are in the world but not of the world!
God is hearing my prayers! Give your children the taste of God when they are young.
Put spiritual taste. Make them taste sweet worship and good Word of God.
Give them a taste.
God’s Word is sweeter than honey!
When God saves you, is it just merely saved?
Rahab became the great grand mother of David the king. She married the captain of Judah. From the union came Boaz.
God writes over everything.
Every men that drinks from this well will thirst again. But every men who drink from the well of God will never thirst again.
1 weapon – the blood of Jesus!
Your child is not just to educate their brain. Do you care for his soul? Have you talked to him about what he is watching?
Are you tasting the good Word of God your children are not?
I pray for you that the blood of Jesus that speaks better thing will cover your entire family. We will enjoy the free favour of God!
Believe in the Lord
