Pastor Benjamin Lim
There is grace revolution all over the world
Grace is most holy.
We must never get tired of hearing the Word of Grace. This is the gospel
Grace belong to Him.
“Now I commit you to God and to the word of his grace, which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.
It is the Word of His grace that build you up
Challenges of life come and you can be pulled down. But when you hear the Word of Grace, it pulled you up
God is strengthening us so that we are strong to handle challenges.
Inheritance is something you don’t have to work for.
The word of grace is something you do not need to work for, you just need to say yes, sign on it and receive it.
We may think we know grace. The Lord wants us to press in and keep on hearing the word of grace.
The working of miracle we need is coming into our lives!
Bring salvation to all men!
You walk out of this place transformed. More healed and believe you can imagine.
Grace works instantly. Grace also works gradually in us.
2 Corinthians 3:18
All of us! Nothing between us and God, our faces shining with the brightness of his face. And so we are transfigured much like the Messiah, our lives gradually becoming brighter and more beautiful as God enters our lives and we become like him.
Your face is shinning because of God in your life and Jesus in your life
Our lives gradually becomes brighter and more beautiful and we become like Him!
When grace enters in our lives we become brighter and more beautiful
The work of Christ at the cross is perfect. Grace is progression in our lives.
We don’t always receive instantaneous result.
A brother was born again and he gradually felt that he did not do enough for God. He also had smoking habit which he tried to quit but the more he tried the more he wanted to smoke.
Gradually going to church became a burden. He would skip church to sleep. He prayed to ℓσνє Jesus again.
One day a friend of his brought him to new creation church. He felt God presence and fell in ℓσνє with Jesus all over again.
Week after week, he came to church. He confessed he is the righteousness of God in Christ even when he was smoking. At first he felt hypocrite.
Over time, he began to hate smoking smell and taste. He would smoke half way and stopped because it tasted funny.
It has been 3 years since he stopped smoking. All glory to Jesus!
Don’t feel guilty when you don’t read the bible, feel hungry
God is writing ℓσνє letters to you. 66 books! In every situation, He always have an answer.
The word of grace sometimes is gradual.
When you know and you believe God is right with you, everything around you will become right.
You know His supply is coming your way and everything will become right.
When the journey is long does not means it is wrong.
When you looked at your friends receiving breakthrough or testimonies, know you are next!
God is open 24/7, He is open everyday!
I have seen something else under the sun:
The race is not to the swift
or the battle to the strong,
nor does food come to the wise
or wealth to the brilliant
or favor to the learned;
but time and chance happen to them all.
Time and chance happen
Are we trying to qualify ourselves?
Did i read the bible today?
It is by reading the bible you understand how much God loves you.
Time and chance happen to them all!
Time. There is a fullness of time.
When the fullness of time came, Jesus came into the world.
There is a timing of things we want to happen in our lives.
The delay could be God preparing you for the blessings that are coming your way.
With social media, everything is at instant in our fingertip
Sometimes we carry the convenient of technology into our daily lives. This is the thing that bring us frustration
We want everything fast, but God has right timing for everything in our lives.
When you go fast you might not reach. When you go slow, you surely reach your destination.
Sometimes things come slow is for your benefit.
Profiting from Trials
My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.
There is time delay because God is developing patience in us.
Let patience has its perfect work
Perfect, mature, complete, lacking nothing
Joseph had a dream at 17 years old. He only saw his dream fulfilled at 30 years old. There was a delay. God was developing patience in him. Joseph had a gift of dream.
God laid iron in him, strengthen him. He had a gift of interpretation of dreams.
Many times the Lord is growing us in our delay so that we are perfect and has wisdom
It brings about maturity and restfulness.
Grace brings rest in our lives.
When we are restful, times and chance happen to us all
We pray knowing we get it.
We are talking to our Father.
If you are situation where there is a delay, pray and ask the Lord for it.
Prayers demonstrate your dependence on the Lord.
In 2006, Pastor Benjamin suspected he has ear problem. The doctor asked him to go for MRI scan. They found a tumour in his brain which sit on his ear nerve.
He was asked to go for immediate surgery. He went for a few opinions and all asked him to go for operation.
He prayed with pastors and was not comfortable to go for operation.
Year after years he went for scans to check if the tumour was still there and reports showed it grew.
He decided to stop and he stopped going for scan for 6 years!
He recently went to see doctor and he asked pastor to go for MRI since he stopped for 6 years. He finally went.
His tumour has shrank by 65%! It was gradual. Lying symptoms are lying. Healing has begun from the inside !
No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their righteousness is from Me,”
Says the Lord.
Formed. It is formed but it will not prosper against you!
That tumour and disease has to go!
By His stripe you are made whole!
No weapon formed against you shall prosper!
Look at things the way God look at it.
Grace may not always bring instant result but it will bring gradual result
God’s Everlasting Love
What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?
Maybe you feel your situation is against you, life is against you, God is for you!
God who did not spare His own Son but deliver Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him (Jesus) also freely give us all things?
Freely! It is free! You don’t have to earn or merit for it!
Grace is underserved favour!
Get Him (Jesus) get all free!
