Sermon note (1st svc)
– Pastor Prince
Move in the word of prophesy even during the week. When someone is going through a season where dark thoughts go through his mind, your word will make a difference.
Your miracle can spark off someone else miracle.
For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
There are attempts today to separate grace and truth.
Hesed vet emet (grace and truth)
True grace. Reality grace.
When Jesus came, all the shadows are gone.
The law demand righteousness, the grace supplies righteousness!
God has moved mountain. He is now on Mount Zion. His provision, supplies and gifts.
Under law you have to work for your blessing. Under grace you receive victory as a gift.
Victory is a gift!
God has all the while wanting to give you victory as a gift.
Before Abraham was, I AM. Abraham rejoice to see His days
Abraham saw Jesus
Abraham saw a ram. He saw God’s Son sacrificed. We do not need to provide Issac, God gives Issac.
Repentance happen after we receive the gift.
God’s heart is full of love.
Our repentance is a result of His kindness towards us.
U r forgiven of all your sins past present and future. Whoever is forgiven much will love Him much.
Long before God made man, there was another creation. Satan is not all knowing.
The bible mentioned 3 arch angels –
Michael – warrior
Gabriel – messenger
Third one fell. We believed he was created to be worship arch angel.
Today when devil deal with people is always pride.
Devil transform himself into the angel of light.
Devil work is based on pride.
Satan came to eve and makes her think the fruit will make her wise like God. Religious pride.
1 John 3:12
not as Cain who was of the wicked one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his works were evil and his brother’s righteous.
A lamb is picture of God’s Son.
God honoured Abel’s sacrifice. God will not accept anything that is of man’s doings.
His Son take our place. His blood will wash away our sins.
Cain was saying, “ accept my works”
This world is fallen. We are living in a fallen earth
Jesus came as the last Adam to take it back.
First murder was because of religion.
Abel trusted the lamb’ sacrifice and Cain trusted his own work
Why did he murder his brother?
Self-righteousness is evil works.
Abel trusted His righteousness
Faith at the Dawn of History
By faith Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, through which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts; and through it he being dead still speaks.
Why did Cain murder his brother Abel?
Trust in the blood of Jesus
Jesus was strong against the Pharisees
We are what we are by God’s grace.
It is an abomination for kings to commit wickedness,
For a throne is established by righteousness.
God’s throne is established by righteousness
Wisdom of the cross.
The cross is where you see the wisdom of God, the power of God.
The cross of Jesus Christ.
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
Without form, and void
Who did not create it in vain
For thus says the Lord,
Who created the heavens,
Who is God,
Who formed the earth and made it,
Who has established it,
Who did not create it in vain,
Who formed it to be inhabited:
“I am the Lord, and there is no other.
You touch God you touch beauty.
The earth fell. It was lucifer fell.
Come into the ark, you and your house.
Because of you, your house is blessed.
Heir of righteousness by faith.
1 Corinthians 7:13-14
And a woman who has a husband who does not believe, if he is willing to live with her, let her not divorce him. For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband; otherwise your children would be unclean, but now they are holy
Sanctify means set apart.
All children goes to heaven
When Adam fell, the whole earth fell.
Where He is, there is life, health, prosperity, peace!
Pray for these our lives.
If a representative head falls, the entire organisation falls.
Between a tree and a cow, who is higher level of creation? Cow has freedom movement and life
10 commandments was written in conscience.
The wolves and the lamb will lie down together when Jesus comes.
God is way ahead. He already planned for man to come.
You were in Eden, the garden of God;
Every precious stone was your covering:
The sardius, topaz, and diamond,
Beryl, onyx, and jasper,
Sapphire, turquoise, and emerald with gold.
The workmanship of your timbrels and pipes
Was prepared for you on the day you were created.
“You were the anointed cherub who covers;
I established you;
You were on the holy mountain of God;
You walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones.
You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created,
Till iniquity was found in you.
“By the abundance of your trading
You became filled with violence within,
And you sinned;
Therefore I cast you as a profane thing
Out of the mountain of God;
And I destroyed you, O covering cherub,
From the midst of the fiery stones.
“Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty;
You corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor;
I cast you to the ground,
I laid you before kings,
That they might gaze at you.
“You defiled your sanctuaries
By the multitude of your iniquities,
By the iniquity of your trading;
Therefore I brought fire from your midst;
It devoured you,
And I turned you to ashes upon the earth
In the sight of all who saw you.
All who knew you among the peoples are astonished at you;
You have become a horror,
And shall be no more forever.” ’ ”
Lucifer had wisdom but is corrupted.
He was the anointed cherubim who covers.
And you shall make two cherubim of gold; of hammered work you shall make them at the two ends of the mercy seat. Make one cherub at one end, and the other cherub at the other end; you shall make the cherubim at the two ends of it of one piece with the mercy seat. And the cherubim shall stretch out their wings above, covering the mercy seat with their wings, and they shall face one another; the faces of the cherubim shall be toward the mercy seat.
They watch over God’s throne.
Covering the mercy seat.
3 arch angels were covering God’s throne.
But one fell. God’s throne is established in righteousness.
In the Old Testament, satan was seldom mentioned by men.
When Jesus asked a question, He knew the answer. He wanna see how we answer
God’s angels, there are more withs than with them.
Satan placed himself as the god of righteousness. He is after God’s throne. If he can get God to compromise His righteousness, he would be “next in throne”
Hesed. Satan does not understand hesed.
God never break His law. The cross is law magnified! The law is fulfilled at the cross!
Jesus fulfilled the law!
Once you fulfil, don’t pay anymore.
Satan used men
Mercy and truth preserve the king,
And by lovingkindness he upholds his throne.
Hesed vet emet (mercy and truth)
God is love.
Vision of the High Priest
Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the Angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to oppose him. And the Lord said to Satan, “The Lord rebuke you, Satan! The Lord who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you! Is this not a brand plucked from the fire?”
Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and was standing before the Angel.
Then He answered and spoke to those who stood before Him, saying, “Take away the filthy garments from him.” And to him He said, “See, I have removed your iniquity from you, and I will clothe you with rich robes.”
Satan wants to turn men into a curser, cursing God. He wanna see what will God do for the men He loves.
God can cloth us with His righteousness through Christ!
Devil is trying to make God compromise His throne.
We are made in God’s image.
Lucifer sin in pride, no one tempted him.
Foolishness is just destroy.
The devil really believe it is possible for him to take God’s place. He really believe he can escape hell and be like God.
What will God do when men break His law? This is the wisdom corrupted by devil. Using law against men.
Everything in life breaks down.
No one can give life except God
Jesus rose from the dead! Is Jesus who is the resurrection and life!
No one can produce life.
From the dust, God can give life to the dust.
Because of Lucifer’s fall, don’t ever become proud.
Daniel was thrown into the lion’s den. He said my God will deliver me. The king could not sleep as his heart was with Daniel.
Daniel has served his sentence. He came out alive.
You see love powerless against the law.
Jesus wrote on the stone. He was saying He is the One who gave the law. He stood up and said who that is without sin, throw the first stone at the woman. One by one they left.
Jesus wrote on the stone again. The law is under the mercy seat.
How can God be righteous in making men righteous?
God sent His Son.
All beauty came from God.
All music came from God.
The devil only perverts it.
God’s Word can never be broken. You can never break God’s law and yet be happy.
You are not living holy you are not receiving His grace.
If you have a problem, talk to God.
If you are not happy with your marriage, ask Him.
If it is not enough, I would have given you more. Is the quality that you want Jesus to turn the water into wine.
Children learn by what they see.
Someone flatters you, is always the beginning. Don’t be easily flattered.
Finally God sent His Son. Why? Because God loves you!
He will demonstrates His love.
When men blames God for all the bad things that happen, look up there. See God. Jesus suffered not only physically but also the suffering of separation from God.
God loves you so much He sent His Son.
At the cross, God took our sins.
Men sin has been taken by other (Jesus)
Someone who loves you so much came. He has chosen to be your substitute. His death is our death.
All you got to do is accept it.
Devil uses accusations on us.
Jesus died! It is worth more than all the planets. There is no ufo. No life in anywhere else. God gives life!
The worth of the Man who died.
Satan was silenced. He can only work with those who don’t know this.
How can God bless you now?
God wants love from within.
It is the posture of your heart.
The cross is the wisdom of God
The cross gave God the righteous outlet to His love.
Jesus suffered and died.
Mercy, righteousness met.
