Sermon note (4th svc)
Faith is the hand that takes!
God can even heal people who are even not believers.
All the healing that happened in the bible are for people who are not born again. Jesus had not die then.
You don’t have to qualify for healing. Healing has to do with how good God is, not how good we are.
It has got to do everything with who God is.
You are proud when you feel you have done right. This is on the wrong ground.
God can touch you where you are.
The true concept of God goes against the grain of our natural religious thinking.
Our logic tells us we have failed and not met His standard.
Whatever is not of faith is sin. This became downward spiral.
With God there is no past present and future. We are confined by time. God is not.
When the bible said 1 John 2:12, our sins are forgiven. This is how God sees it. See from God’s viewpoint.
1 John 2:12
I write to you, little children,
Because your sins are forgiven you for His name’s sake.
God’s love for us is amazing. He will leave the 99 for 1 lost sheep!
The Lord cares about the one individual. Even your Father knows the numbers of hairs on your head! There is nothing too small for our God’s attention.
Light never stop expanding
Repentance towards God. This repentance is changing our mind.
God saw us in our worst! When we don’t care about Him, He cares about us!!
God did not create robots.
God create us with free moral choice. If God use His power to manipulate our free choice, than it is not a free choice.
What do you want? A robot or a free moral agent?
God gave man every tree to eat from, except one. To show His Lordship. Sin brought forth decay and degeneration into death. God hate death. God called death an enemy!
In heaven nothing hurts and nothing destroy.
Health there in heaven and health on earth! Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven! Pray for Kingdom’s invasion on earth.
All creation is crying.
Earthquake is not an act of God, is an act of demon.
Let Jesus be the King and Lord in my life! We can have days of heaven on earth.
The kingdom has come in my life.
Change our mind towards the Lord. Repentance towards God, means believe God is for us!
Think correctly about God!
When we think correctly about God we think correctly about ourselves
Why did He come to earth?
For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”
Jesus Heals Blind Bartimaeus
Now they came to Jericho. As He went out of Jericho with His disciples and a great multitude, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the road begging.
He did not come looking for servants. God has angels who never get tired! Angels sing perfect pitch!
Jesus did not come to be served but to serve.
The crying and sobbing love of God like the waves of the sea. Roaring to find that inlet.
All the love of God starts flowing in!
All the rain rain on the rose and we are the rose.
The love of God. His thoughts are too condensed.
We are already lost. He came to save us! What a Saviour!
God cares for me!
People are identified by numbers and not by names in the earth
Jesus call us by names.
He sent our His sheep and call us by names.
How can God so mighty who can love everyone and yet love me? That is why He is God!!
Jesus did not come to be served but to serve.
Bartimaeus – son of Timaeus. When Joshua conquered Jericho, he pronounced a curse on whoever build the city of Jericho.
Blind and begging. Blindness is disease and begging is poverty
In heaven there is no sick people
Gospel is called the gospel of grace.
Religious teaching is to be poor is holy.
All who came to Jesus were healed! When the boy brought 5 loaves and 2 fish, Jesus multiplied them!
We don’t pursue the blessing we pursue Jesus!!
Jesus! Son of David has mercy on me!
There is something the blind knew about Jesus.
All loved is giving! If love is not allowed to give? It is painful!
Stand still. Who is this who stood still? A blind beggar.
All things were made by Him and without Him nothing was made
Full of grace and truth
Of His fullness has we all received and grace upon grace upon grace.
The God who created the sun and stood still, Himself stood still!! A blind beggar caused Him to stand still.
And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”
Then many warned him to be quiet; but he cried out all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”
So Jesus stood still and commanded him to be called.
Then they called the blind man, saying to him, “Be of good cheer. Rise, He is calling you.”
And throwing aside his garment, he rose and came to Jesus.
So Jesus answered and said to him, “What do you want Me to do for you?”
The blind man said to Him, “Rabboni, that I may receive my sight.”
Then Jesus said to him, “Go your way; your faith has made you well.” And immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus on the road.
He used His sight to follow Jesus!
Give people the blessing and the blessing will change them!
Beginning at Moses.
A law that God put it there and God hides His Son.
Exodus 20, God gave commandments.
The Law Concerning Servants
“Now these are the judgments which you shall set before them: If you buy a Hebrew servant, he shall serve six years; and in the seventh he shall go out free and pay nothing.
If he comes in by himself, he shall go out by himself; if he comes in married, then his wife shall go out with him. If his master has given him a wife, and she has borne him sons or daughters, the wife and her children shall be her master’s, and he shall go out by himself.
But if the servant plainly says, ‘I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free,’ then his master shall bring him to the judges. He shall also bring him to the door, or to the doorpost, and his master shall pierce his ear with an awl; and he shall serve him forever.
In the 50th year is the Jubilee of all Jubilees. Restoration!!
Doorpost is a place come so close to freedom. Outside is liberty, inside is service.
The servant could be free but he came for his family.
He could be free but He chose not to!
He could have gone but He stayed!
Who is this all about?
We did not even know we are lost. He came down while we were still sinners. He came to our own but we see Him not.
The eternal God confined Himself in a baby, time and space. Such humility that God Almighty came down.
If only we have ears to hear, this love story!
In no point was Jesus compelled to go to the cross. Anytime He can say the rejection is too much, and He can come back home.
The choice was His.
Jesus had a choice. God could send 12 league of angels to save Jesus when Jesus said He wants to go back.
1006500 fell dead, only one angel did it.
Jesus could pray right now and God could send 12 leagues of angels for Him.
If man on earth would not receive My Son, heaven would.
Jesus love His Master; God, His people and His church and He chose to stay.
With His stripe we are healed!!
A nature of love and holiness!
The very anticipation of the event caused Jesus to sweat blood.
For a sinless Being, to take on the punishment of sin!
He wants us to know He still give!! Forevermore He is a Hebrew servant.
He came to serve! He wants us to take! He wants us to receive!!
Jesus Washes the Disciples’ Feet
Now before the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that His hour had come that He should depart from this world to the Father, having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end.
And supper being ended, the devil having already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray Him, Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands, and that He had come from God and was going to God, rose from supper and laid aside His garments, took a towel and girded Himself. After that, He poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded.
Only a secure Man can stood down. Insecure leaders are leaders who give a lot of problems. They have to proof! Secure leaders nothing to defend and hide.
God loves me!
Jesus becomes our Meditator!
Daily as believers we hear things we should hear. Dust is the food of the devil.
Those who are born again just need to wash their feet. Don’t need to reborn.
and in the midst of the seven lampstands One like the Son of Man, clothed with a garment down to the feet and girded about the chest with a golden band.
Jesus remained a Servant. He used all that He is to serve us!
We are all needy people. Prayer is a time of coming to the inexhaustible supply of healing, strength, love. Come to Jesus and tell Him our worries. Something lift us up! Rubber ball when we try to push down the water cannot be pushed down.
Jesus gives us His faith! Even the faith to believe comes from Jesus!!!!
The willingness come from Jesus!!
See ourselves as empty people and He is so full! He loves to give! In heaven today He still gives!
God is healing people now!

How many want renewal of youth?

When You restored it is greater! The memory restored!!
Restore memory and make it stronger than ever before. Return to the days of our youth!
Impart to us restoration of memory facility!
Our youth is renewed like the eagles!
Guard your mouth.
The true worshiper is the one who is effective servant.
In the name of Jesus Christ, rise up and walk!
O you of little faith. Faith is the hand that takes.
Jesus is always giving, why do we take so little?
Jesus came to Mantha and Mary house. Mantha engaged her hands and Mary engaged her heart.
Mary chose the good part and it shall not be taken away from her.
The one who saw beneath the exterior that is tired. She made Jesus feel like God.
Mary was the only lady at the right time at the right place at the cross.
Right time right place right ministry.
1 Chronicles 17:1-4
God’s Covenant with David
Now it came to pass, when David was dwelling in his house, that David said to Nathan the prophet, “See now, I dwell in a house of cedar, but the ark of the covenant of the Lord is under tent curtains.”
Then Nathan said to David, “Do all that is in your heart, for God is with you.”
But it happened that night that the word of God came to Nathan, saying, “Go and tell My servant David, ‘Thus says the Lord: “You shall not build Me a house to dwell in.
1 Chronicles 17:10
since the time that I commanded judges to be over My people Israel. Also I will subdue all your enemies. Furthermore I tell you that the Lord will build you a house.
The Lord will build me a house! He wants to serve us first!
Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching. Assuredly, I say to you that he will gird himself and have them sit down to eat, and will come and serve them.
Even when He comes back as King of all kings, He come and serve.
What shall I render to the Lord
For all His benefits toward me?
I will take up the cup of salvation,
And call upon the name of the Lord.
The way to say thank you to Jesus is to TAKE SOME MORE!
Prayer is a time for us to take!
David’s response is “who am I”
What is my house?
When we receive from God we become effective servant.
1 Chronicles 29:3-5
Moreover, because I have set my affection on the house of my God, I have given to the house of my God, over and above all that I have prepared for the holy house, my own special treasure of gold and silver: three thousand talents of gold, of the gold of Ophir, and seven thousand talents of refined silver, to overlay the walls of the houses; the gold for things of gold and the silver for things of silver, and for all kinds of work to be done by the hands of craftsmen. Who then is willing to consecrate himself this day to the Lord?”
1 Chronicles 29:14
But who am I, and who are my people,
That we should be able to offer so willingly as this?
For all things come from You,
And of Your own we have given You.
Whenever we give to the Lord, God is the One who gives us, and out of His own we give back to Him.
Take take, after you take, take some more.
