You can be in trouble just hiding in your home. It can even be depression
Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together.
The upper room is like Moses going up to Mount Sinai
The church is all about loving one another forgiving one another fore-bearing one another.
God’s heavenly vision –
Not forsaking the assembling.
Corporate anointing you get in assembling
The Lord command the blessings
The oil is just oil, it is what it symbolises
Jesus had to be crushed.
Jesus was crushed for our iniquities.
On the cross He became sin for our sin.
The devil wanna constrict time and restrict space.
The chamber we saw early this year. The chamber first floor talk about grain wine and oil.
The grain and wine was used last year. Eat your way to life and health.
Man cannot plan this. Only the Lord knows.
Now we have the oil. The provision of the first floor is for the first part of the year. This virus thing, the answer is the grain, wine and oil.
Second floor is the place of rest for the priests.
End of the year we will go up to the upper chamber
Space increases for us.
Egypt means double crumble of space.
End of the year the world will see financial downturn but there will be provision for this house.
Be glad then, you children of Zion,
And rejoice in the Lord your God;
For He has given you the former rain faithfully,
And He will cause the rain to come down for you—
The former rain,
And the latter rain in the first month.
The threshing floors shall be full of wheat,
And the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil.
“So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten,
The crawling locust,
The consuming locust,
And the chewing locust,
My great army which I sent among you.
First natural Israel than spiritual Israel
Long before the devil did all these things, the Lord has the answer.
The Lord will restore to you the years the locust has eaten. You will be strong and young again! I will restore to you the years the locust has eaten!
Everything you can see is temporal. Those things you can’t see are eternal. God is realer than the sense realm.
The Lord wants us to be more conscious of the eternal realm.
The devil plays catch up, God never play catch up.
God sent the deliverer. The things that God does is quiet but not weak.
The most powerful things of God works quietly yet powerful.
The things of devil is loud.
The fear caused because the media always used the word deadly.
There are 50 million people in Hubei.
In Singapore there are people been discharged already.
Thank God that the virus can be traced.
I have a feeling the virus will stop suddenly.
When God sent Jesus, it was silent night.
The promise one after Adam fell, came suddenly.
No sound but the dew fall. The manna fell on the dew.
When the devil reacted, he killed the babies at the age of 2.
This virus has an evil intelligent behind it and seems to want to attack Christians. But don’t be afraid. There is new strains of miracles and healings released to us.

The best is yet to come!
We have a now word for God.
There are a lot of experts around the world. What we need to hear is from the Lord.
When you apply look to the Lord Jesus, not to the oil. The oil is yoke destroying, disease destroying
A brother returned to Singapore after he was out of Singapore for work for decades. He could not sleep. He have high blood pressure. It has been challenging for him. He had increase of attack of health and career. When Pastor preached on anointing oil he felt faith arising in his heart. His wife put anointing oil on his pillow. He received better sleep for the next few days. And he had no headaches. Now he would apply anointing oil on his head everyday before he goes to work.
A good report makes your bones fat.

1 Kings 14:25-28
It happened in the fifth year of King Rehoboam that Shishak king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem. And he took away the treasures of the house of the Lord and the treasures of the king’s house; he took away everything. He also took away all the gold shields which Solomon had made. Then King Rehoboam made bronze shields in their place, and committed them to the hands of the captains of the guard, who guarded the doorway of the king’s house. And whenever the king entered the house of the Lord, the guards carried them, then brought them back into the guardroom.

Silver is a symbol of redemption
Bronze – symbol of judgement

Bronze is a symbol of judgement
God gave law first so that we can understand and appreciate grace.
The law is about demand from holy God.
We live our lives with the sense of supply.
Know who He is and what we have in the invisible world.
It takes the holy spirit to declare and preached it.
You can claim Psalm 91 but if you do it to be right with God you have fallen from grace.
People come to God afraid. A sense of God’s holiness (rightly so), but if you come to Him with the sense you did not do enough, than you are going backward
In people’s eyes is good works but in God’s eyes is dead works.
Artificial intelligence can create machine and work a machine, but they cannot produce life.

For God SO loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son.
2 Corinthians 5:21
For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
Jesus who knew no sin became our sin on the cross
We who knew no righteousness became righteous
Jesus took our guilt on the cross.
If we feel guilty and run ourselves down, we are establishing a lying position
He cannot bear witness with lies
Long before there was a sickness, death, sin came in.
We are all creatures of sin
The cross is the answer.
God is righteous in making us righteous.
At the cross Christ who knew no sin became sin when He knew no sin.
There is no sin greater than self righteousness. Is the mother of all sins.
Shishak means Greedy or fine linen (righteousness)
Jesus is greater than sin. When you have Jesus in your life, your righteousness cannot be moved
Shishak- wants to remove the sense of fine linen
There is no sin that God cannot forgive. You are saved you are saved forever.
You cannot buy sleep.
You cannot buy a family, love
What is the life? Jesus said I come that you may have life and have it more abundantly
Man greater than us had fallen. Stay small in our eyes. Stay low. That is where the dew hit.

A mountain is a place of advantage.
King Saul turned against God. He worked with pain and stress. Burdensome labour.
How large is David’s heart.
Stop the burdensome labour of trying to please God.

He cursed the mountain of Gilboa.
10 hottest places on Planet Earth.

It is not just applying the oil, you must be established with righteousness
Not weapon formed against you shall prosper!
If symptoms have been created in your body, it is not there to stay.
No weapon formed against you shall prosper. Every tongues written against you shall be shown wrong.
The more you declare you are the righteousness of God in Christ, God promised the weapon won’t formed against you.
When you do good, it is outflow, not trying to be righteous.
You are acknowledging the truth. Jesus became my sin and i can be the righteousness of God in Christ.
The seed of the righteous is delivered!
Abraham believed God, it was counted to him for righteousness
The Promise Granted Through Faith
For the promise that he would be the heir of the world was not to Abraham or to his seed through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.
Bronze shield – the law
It is not thru the law!
Promise to be the heir of the world is not through the bronze shield.
It is through the golden shield. The righteousness by faith.
When they oil their shield, it gets tied and the bow that hit the shield will slide off.
And it shall be
That he who flees from the noise of the fear
Shall fall into the pit,
And he who comes up from the midst of the pit
Shall be caught in the snare;
For the windows from on high are open,
And the foundations of the earth are shaken.
It all starts with listening to fear. Don’t respond to fear.
The righteous are bold as a lion!
David run towards the Goliath. He run towards the giant! He run towards fear. The giant fell!
Don’t respond to fear.
Children of God don’t listen to New Age teaching.
2 Samuel 1:21 ASV
Ye mountains of Gilboa,
Let there be no dew nor rain upon you, neither fields of offerings:
For there the shield of the mighty was vilely cast away,
The shield of Saul, not anointed with oil
vilely – self righteousness way of throwing it away. He threw away with spite.
The phrase how mighty fallen was repeated 3 times.
We keep Jesus in the centre and depend on Jesus who made us righteous, not by ourselves.
