2 Timothy 3:16-17
All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
My son, give attention to my words;
Incline your ear to my sayings.
Do not let them depart from your eyes;
Keep them in the midst of your heart;
For they are life to those who find them,
And health to all their flesh.
But concerning the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what was spoken to you by God, saying, I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.” And when the multitudes heard this, they were astonished at His teaching.
He said I am God of Abraham
The God of Issac
The God of Jacob
He said it 3 times
Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say, “And to seeds,” as of many, but as of one, “And to your Seed,” who is Christ.
Seed – singular
Seed – Christ
Seeds – children of Israel
1 Corinthians 9:9-11
For it is written in the law of Moses, “You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain.” Is it oxen God is concerned about? Or does He say it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written, that he who plows should plow in hope, and he who threshes in hope should be partaker of his hope.
If we have sown spiritual things for you, is it a great thing if we reap your material things?
As the ox go round the ox will eat. Allow the ox to eat.
Ox refers to the pastors, ministers
The grain is God’s Word. God’s word feed His people.
They treads out the grains (God’s Word) for the people.
He stretcheth out the north over the empty place,
and hangeth the earth upon nothing.
He seals the hand of every man,
That all men may know His work.
It is He who sits above the circle of the earth,
And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers,
Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain,
And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.
But we were hoping that it was He who was going to redeem Israel. Indeed, besides all this, today is the third day since these things happened.
They have a fixated way of how God is going to save them.
If it is not happening our way than our way is not God’s way.
And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.
In the scripture the things concerning Himself
Find God’s way in the scripture
God said He will provide for u
He will protect u
When I am in your life, you can walk on water
Have you not read?
If you have not read, have you heard?
If you have not heard, how can you see?
Whatever little in your hands, God will prosper you.
Take the low place, God will promote you.
Always at the right place at the right time
God ‘s protection is for you
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.
What must he do?
Ask of God
It will be given to him
Ask in faith with no doubting
Don’t doubt already
If you lack wisdom, ask God! He won’t scold you. He will give to you.
Ask without doubting.
For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
We cannot take protection for granted.
Always pray for protection
A young boy in Israel attend church. He saw a stone at the stage and saw a verse and this verse was always with him –
A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
Years later he was a soldier and was caught in a cross fire and no harm came to him.
The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.”
Remain calm. God will fight for you
And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;
The Answered Prayer
“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.
There is power in our believing. God will use us to do great things.
The Lord will protect us.
Whatever you ask in My name, that I will do.
Have you not read?
Anything you ask in My name, that I will do
The Father may be glorified
If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.
