Sermon note (4th svc)By Pastor Prince
There is a solid foundation for peace. Jesus’ wound, His finish work! This is the divine receipt! Jesus was delivered to the cross on account of our sin! He was raised from the dead, on account of our justification. He was delivered for our offences. Jesus is raised from the dead. All hell shattered! It was the reason for every believers to rejoice! Let our conscious rest!
God cannot punish us twice. Cannot punish the One who took our punishment and punish us again.
Jesus loves so much He said where i am, where you will be also.
Jesus is coming for us!
The church of Jesus Christ will get brighter and brighter! The path of the righteous will grow brighter and brighter
The last enemy to be put under His feet is death. Death has been conquered but has not been put under His feet.
We who are alive and remain shall be called out to the Lord in the air. That denotes power!
Is one thing to be alive and another thing to remain.
1 Corinthians 10:13
No temptation (peirasmos – trial) has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape (ekbasis), that you may be able to bear (hupophero) it.
Hupo – under
A under current of a river carrying (phero) someone away.
Carried safely away from danger
A way to escape – the (pointing to something definite) way out, not a way.
Is not a way, a way can be a new way.
Jesus is THE Way, THE Truth and THE Life!
He is THE ONLY WAY. (A definite article)
1 Corinthians 10:13-16
No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.
Flee from Idolatry
Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry. I speak as to wise men; judge for yourselves what I say. The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion (koinonia – intimate participation, the idea of communion, fellowship, association) of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?
Verse 16 is the communion. What has it to do with the way of escape?
After they built a golden calf, they sat down and drink. Wild party. Eating and drinking before a foreign god which is idol.
Everything that happen to man, is man ate his way to all these mess.
God called death as an enemy. God hate sin. God loves sinners. God hate sin as much as He loves the sinners. God loves you but God hate sin. Sin is the thing that destroy everything that is health, life for you and your family.
In His presence is fullness of joy!!
Jesus must be a Person strong, smiley when He said My joy be remain in you and your joy be full.
The only time He was a Man of sorrow was when He was at the cross. He took our sorrow that we can have joy!
The Son of God became a curse for us that the blessing of Abraham may come on us!
The wise one is the one who depend on Jesus.
Be Jesus’ conscious and not demon-conscious
God’s faithfulness, He will always make a way of escape. God has the answer for you.
If u escape a testing is not a testing.
Every testing, God will provide a way out
Without faith is impossible to please God.
Paul himself said he received from the Lord.
The devil is trying to minimise THE WAY OUT.
Paul is a systematic writer. But come to Bible, Holy Spirit leads the writing.
1 Corinthians 10:18-19
Observe Israel after the flesh: Are not those who eat of the sacrifices partakers of the altar? What am I saying then? That an idol is anything, or what is offered to idols is anything?
Is in our interest to partake of the altar (the altar is the place of the cross)
How do I partake it? A sharer of what happened. A sharer of the benefit of the blood and the bread.
When we eat the bread and drink the cup we are a sharer.
Holy communion is not a matter of trying. It is empty if we are trying.
Is better to have health than healing. But don’t live from healing to healing.
The early church came together to break bread daily!!
3 floors. All believers are seated in heaven. (symbolic)
All scripture are inspired.
Don’t forget where the power come from.
1 Corinthians 11:30
For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep.
A sinner dies, a believer sleeps.
What is “this reason” –
1 Corinthians 11:29
For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.
Communion is THE WAY OUT.
Bread and cup is not lumped as one.
A separation between bread and cup.
By His stripe we are healed!
God wants us well!
Broke bread DAILY and from HOUSE TO HOUSE.
Walking is Jesus’ style of exercise.
Discern His body!
Is not unworthy man, is unworthy manner.
Is how we eat.
Partake with revelation!
Jesus was not murdered. He has the power to lay down His life and power to take it up again. No man can take His life. He has power.
He spoke I AM. I AM THAT I AM.
He was not arrested.
He did not had to die. He loves us. He wants us to be healed and He wants us strong!
People has been delivered from their sins when the confess who they are before God. We are the righteousness of God in Christ.
We are the righteousness of God in Christ when we are born again
The more you take communion you will fall sick less and less. Start now!
Don’t say what we feel, speak what God says!
Go by God’s Word.
Trust God’s Instrument (Bible)
With His stripe we are healed!
Kholee – physical disease
Makov – pains
Bible interpret bible –
Surely He has borne our griefs (kholee)
And carried our sorrows;
Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten by God, and afflicted.
that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying:
“He Himself took our infirmities
And bore our sicknesses.”
Many Healed After Sabbath Sunset
When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying:
“He Himself took our infirmities
And bore our sicknesses.”
Healed ALL who came to HIM!
Isaiah 53:5 AMP
But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was crushed for our wickedness [our sin, our injustice, our wrongdoing];
The punishment [required] for our well-being fell on Him, And by His stripes (wounds) we are healed.
STRIPE is singular –
They beat Jesus until no more skin left. Singular is used. By His entire stripe, we are healed!!
He could see His bones.
Chavurah – stripe, wound
chavurah also means fellowship, association
Wny did God put chavurah stripe and also fellowship?
Communion – Intimate participation
Is by fellowship with those stripe!
The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree,
He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
Those who are planted in the house of the Lord
Shall flourish in the courts of our God.
They shall still bear fruit in old age;
They shall be fresh and flourishing,
To declare that the Lord is upright;
He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.
The trees of the Lord are full of sap,
The cedars of Lebanon which He planted,
Cedar of Lebanon
How to be full of sap and green and strong?
And wine that makes glad the heart of man,
Oil to make his face shine,
And bread which strengthens man’s heart.
The wine and the bread is the communion! That makes us full of sap!! Wow!!
Listen to sermon and partake communion. Don’t partake with empty hearts.
Eat your way back into blessing
Fresh – vigorous!
Flourishing – green!
Vigorous and evergreen!
You can be evergreen!! For us to declare the Lord is upright good GOD!!
Cedar wood is incorruptible.
Don’t just come to church, be planted.
The age is old but the person is not.
Even the youth shall faint. They that wait upon the Lord shall mount up with wing like eagle
They that wait upon the Lord is Join together – fellowship !! Wow!!
Abraham considered not his body dried up.
Now it came to pass, as He sat at the table with them, that He took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they knew Him; and He vanished from their sight.
When He broke the bread, their eyes were opened and they knew Him.
What was lost was restored. Jesus wanted them to see Him in the word.
Jesus did not disappear.
Adam and Eve, their eyes were opened to the wrong thing. They did not partake the tree of life!
Communion is the tree of life!! Wow!!!
And they told about the things that had happened on the road, and how He was known to them in the breaking of bread.
Jesus Appears to His Disciples
Now as they said these things, Jesus Himself stood in the midst of them, and said to them, “Peace to you.”
Jesus appeared as they spoke about breaking of bread !!
Take this and proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes!
