Sermon Note (4th svc)
God’s house is the many membered body of Christ.
The house of God, the house build for the many members of Christ.
Living stones to build the house.
We are all living stones. Not only that, the Bible talks about living water.
When water is flowing, like the latter rain, is called living water!
Our lives must be constant flow.
One the best medicine is movement. You got to move it move it.
God designed you to move and flow.
Stir up the gift of God that is in you.
You don’t stir up the holy spirit.
Stir up the gift of the holy spirit – praying in tongues.
The river of ℓσνє, power and sound mind (steady, cool, calm, yet there is power and ℓσνє)
Family of God do not neglect this gift that is in you.
Let your life be a constant flow. You never know when God will use you.
Out of the belly of the believers
Everyday we ℓσνє to be in His presence. Those who draw close to Him, there is a closeness in terms of relationship.
Is Himself. We draw to the Saviour.
Salvation Himself came to the house.
Himself. The focus is in Himself.
Is Himself. If only we have a relationship that is in touch with Him
When we are in touch with Jesus, we talk to Him, there is a connection been made.
The light comes on. You can feel Him inside. Have that closeness.
Many served David. Some did things for the kingdom, but there are some who did things for the king.
They brought David the water he longed for. They heard the cry of David. It was not a command from the king, just a desire. They ℓσνє him. Do you ℓσνє Jesus?
Surely He has borne our diseases and our pain.
God sent His Son. Himself took it.
When He comes again, for the Lord Himself will descend.
The Lord Himself will descend from heaven.
The grain the wine and the oil.
If we don’t touch on the breaking up of word for you, you are caught and your faith won’t be the robust faith.
When you read your english bible, judge, condemn appears. The reason we are no longer under the law, we are not under the master, sin. (Romans 6) sin has no longer dominion over us. This is by the cross of Jesus Christ.
We are dead to our own husband. Law is not master but our master. We are no longer married to Mr Law. Sin is bad. Law is good. We are not to operate under good and bad but operate under be led by the Spirit.
We are dead and risen.
Sin has only power that is not dead.
We are no longer married to Mr Law. Law can only speak to sons of Adam.
We are in Christ, dead and risen!
We are living in the resurrection life.
You are on the other side of the grave. We are not to look forward to the death.
We look forward to see the Lord.
All the signs and prophesy seem to be in place. We are near to rapture.
We will look really handsome and beautiful. We will still recognise each other.
God will change our bodies before He brings us through the universe. He changes our bodies before He brings us up.
We are dead and risen.
Bring the angel to live a normal life. When you are with him, we sense a heavenly atmosphere. He is above it. We are to live a heavenly life. Not the life of a law.
We are in the flesh but not in the flesh. God is not looking us in the flesh but in the Spirit.
We have special gift for real!
A lady from Texas. Her mother had alzheimer disease. She could not recognise her husband.
They took holy communion after they watched Pastor Prince sermon.
On the night, her mother slept and the next day she woke up 10 years younger and she could recognise everyone. She stopped repeating herself. She was lost and trapped but this is all over now. She recovered!
Now the partake the holy communion everyday!
The broken body of Jesus and His shed blood. Lives are set free.
There are people who are bound by drugs. We have the peace that Jesus left with us.
Joe from US. He had very bad panic attack since he was 12. He was on drug (medicine) for it. Through the years he prayed. He heard that he will get judgement because of what he had done. He left church. God told him countless time to listen to Pastor Prince sermons. Finally he listened to his sermons and he was in tears.
He heard a clip on Holy Communion. He took holy communion. He did not come out of medicine right away. He took holy communion everyday and cut down on drug and one year and a half he completely out of drug and now he is healed!
He was diagnosed with seeds and was going for operation. Before that he took holy communion and received healing and did not need to go for operation!
Start partaking holy communion
Is body of Jesus a literal body of Jesus or is it a symbol?
They broke bread from house to house.
Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
Knowing our sins have been remitted because of the blood.
His blood is the reason sin is no longer in our lives.
Our sins are all remitted.
We should be conscious of that.
Gospel of Mark sequence follow one another.
What law cannot do, grace can do.
The holy spirit put them to illustrate the order.
Jesus Institutes the Lord’s Supper
(Matt. 26:26–29; Luke 22:14–23; 1 Cor. 11:23–26)
And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them and said, “Take, eat; this is My body.”
Then He took the cup, and when He had given thanks He gave it to them, and they all drank from it. And He said to them, “This is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many.
They drink. As long as you hold the bread in your hand, it is still a bread. It is still natural. When does it become uncommon, holy?
You don’t need pastors to break with you. We are all royal priesthood. They break bread from house to house.
You come before the Lord, you meditate and you thank the Lord. You thank Him and remember Him at the cross. Than you partake. After you partake, is the body of Jesus.
As long as it is outside, it is natural.
After they ate it and drink it, it becomes holy.
It only becomes holy in the vessel.
Holy communion is the substance of the shadow in the Old Testament
Eat the roasted lamb. Roasted in fire. Don’t water it down.
See Him at the cross suffering our judgement.
They ate the head, the feet, the tail.
Israel was eating the roasted lamb while judgement was going on outside. God does not require great faith to eat, only hunger. God does not need great faith to put the blood on the door, just obedience
The security lies not in the faith, but in the blood.
It is not our confident or great faith. It is the blood or the lack of it.
Whether you fully understand or not, does not matter. Partake worthily. Not try to deserve it.
Why did the Apostle Paul write this if holy communion is not important?
Luke was the only gentile writer. Luke was a partner of Paul.
Paul was not with Jesus. He received more from Jesus than those who walked with Jesus.
When the Holy Spirit comes, He will guide you into all truth.
Know the spirit by which we pray today. We pray thank you you have forgiven us all our sins.
Holy Spirit comes and He will guide us into all truth.
What is He doing now in the Father’s right hands? This was in Paul’s book. It was the grace of God he first saw. His gospel is the gospel of the grace of God.
1 Corinthians 11:23-32
Institution of the Lord’s Supper
(Matt. 26:26–29; Mark 14:22–25; Luke 22:14–23)
For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”
For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.
Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep. For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged. But when we are judged, we are chastened by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world.
Lord Jesus Himself. He received from the Lord directly.
We are not the puppies under the table. We have the whole bread! We are not gentiles. We are the church of Christ!
God is not asking more than what is that in your hand.
The Lord uses weak things. Even red dot to confound the mighty. Thank God we are small. In God economic, something great comes out.
Something about the communion the devil is so terrified of.
The wine becomes something for happy hours.
It becomes a time people are drunk.
It was devil behind it.
God has given us a provision we don’t have to suffer like the world.
The body of the blood of My Son.
There is a sentence in this world.
Before death is weakness, sickness, death.
Christians do get sick. But we know when we get sick this is not God’s will for us.
There is no sickness or death until Adam sinned.
It is not part of God’s plan.
Death only came in because of sin.
The way God hate sin, God hate death.
He went around healing all who were sick. He is always providing.
There are people who fast for 7 days. They were hungry, He fed them
Supplies stop when they stopped.
God wants us to be blessed, have provision.
The gospel is called the gospel of the grace of God.
Women are respected and honoured.
Great halls of education were built for the glory of God. All those places were first bible schools.
Wherever gospel gone, they become creative.
The gospel produces prosperity
Even hospitals, doctors, went into this field.
We are all about helping people the way God ordained it to be.
We are taught to honour our leaders.
A lot of good things are happening.
A simple act brought the entire fall of man (Adam)
All the curse came in because of the simple act.
God ordained u can eat your way out of the curse.
Eve added cannot touch it. But God said don’t eat it.
Don’t just listen to holy communion, partake!
The enemies gathered around Israel and they cried out to Samuel. They offered a burnt offering.
Sin is no longer a barrier between God and Israel because of the burnt offering.
Just because of a small lamb. The enemies all defeated.
David offered burnt offerings.
Is the blood that brings the blessing.
Every time you proclaim the Lord’s sufferings, blessings come!
Sin conscious is unworthy.
The word examine is dokimazo
Prove with a view to approving
Examine myself. Proving what is approved.
The word judgement
We can judge ourselves. He is eating judgement to himself.
The person is doing to himself, not God.
He is sin conscious. He is still feeling judgement. He is eating judgement, not justification.
If you partake with judgement to yourself, that is partaking unworthily.
Separate, make a distinction
Doubt not in your heart when you speak to the mountain.
You are looking at Jesus and looking at the circumstances, this is doubt.
Don’t make a difference. When you look at mountain and look at fig tree and said u can curse fig tree but cannot move mountain.
Make a distinction between the bread and the blood.
Blood and the cup is not lumped as one. Make a difference between the bread and the cup.
For this reason of not discerning the Lord’s body, many are weak, sick, and many sleep.
Many are weak and sick and fall asleep.
1 Corinthians 11:31
For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged (Krino)
To pronounce opinion between right and wrong. Subject to censure. Correcting.
For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn (krino) the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
“He who believes in Him is not condemned (krino); but he who does not believe is condemned (krino) already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
We are never in krino.
Jesus came to rescue us out of condemnation.
Chasten is child train
Does God child train us? Yes. He only child train those He cares for.
1 Corinthians 11:31
For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged.
Talk more about Jesus!
1 Corinthians 11:32
But when we are judged (krino), we are chastened (paideuo – child train) by the Lord, that we may not be condemned (katakrino – pass sentence upon) with the world.
God does not child train us with sickness.
When God pass sentence when Adam sin, weakness sickness death
When we learn to take advantage of the Holy communion, we do not suffer the sentence of Adam.
Imagine Jesus’ head bearing our sickness, partake as if we partake of Jesus’ brain.
None feeble. If partaking the shadow can do that to them, what about the substance? (Old Testament)
Miracle through the Lord supper come 30 fold, 60 fold and 100 fold and it shall surely come!
