Sermon note (4th svc)
You are all living stones. A stone a rock out there in the wilderness is just a rock. But when it is build together to become a house, it is living stone.
Your life, there is a purpose. You are not born by accident. How you were formed could be accident. But the moment you are born, God put a destiny in your life. Each one of you are special with gifting only you have.
That is why God makes your fingerprints different.
There is only one you. You are called for an assignment. Every time you come to God’s house, your assignment becomes clearer and clearer.
There is assignment from God within your assignment.
Fulfil your call, find out what God has for you.
Take down notes! There is special place in heaven for people who take down notes.
How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God!
therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.
They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house;
and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.
For with thee is the fountain of life:
in thy light shall we see light.
When grace is preached (“hesed”), trust will be natural response.
One of the reasons why prodigal son stood up, in his brother’s house, there is bread (healing) enough and to spare.
Not just enough. Healing health enough and to spare.
Someone is been healed from heart condition right now.
If you have heart condition, stand to your feet now.
High blood pressure, stand to your feet now.
God is restoring your strength.
You are the Lord that heals us!
Thank you Lord for the complete healing. In the Father’s house, there is healing. Zoe life! Healing and repairing !
Tell them many of them will go back and find their conditions no longer the same. Some will sleep tonight and you will find your sleep will be sweet.
You will drink the rivers of your pleasures (eden) all kinds of pleasures the Lord ordain in the beginning.
In your Light you will see light.
You enjoy the hesed of God.
You find increasingly the grace of God is pleasure in your lives.
Whatever is troubling you, as you worship the Lord and listen in the house of God, in His light you see light!
In His light we see light.
Whatever is troubling you, you don’t have the speaker to preach on this subject. God’s wisdom will flow. The opening of His Words give light!
In God’s Light we see light!
Emmaus road experience.
As the couple walked away from Jerusalem, they were casted down.
When we are cast down is because we have lost sight the Man in heaven. He becomes a mean to an end.
He got to be the centre. All these things He does i ls wonderful but who He is is even more wonderful.
Jesus said beginning at Moses, Jesus expound to them things concerning Himself.
You got to put Christ in, and all of a sudden, everything works!
And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them. According to all that I shew thee, after the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it.
The bible devotes 2 chapters on creation.
He is more concern about you.
The holy spirit takes up about 50 chapters on tabernacle. It is all about Jesus and about redemption.
And thou shalt make a candlestick of pure gold: of beaten work shall the candlestick be made: his shaft, and his branches, his bowls, his knops, and his flowers, shall be of the same. And six branches shall come out of the sides of it; three branches of the candlestick out of the one side, and three branches of the candlestick out of the other side: Three bowls made like unto almonds, with a knop and a flower in one branch; and three bowls made like almonds in the other branch, with a knop and a flower: so in the six branches that come out of the candlestick. And in the candlestick shall be four bowls made like unto almonds, with their knops and their flowers. And there shall be a knop under two branches of the same, and a knop under two branches of the same, and a knop under two branches of the same, according to the six branches that proceed out of the candlestick. Their knops and their branches shall be of the same: all it shall be one beaten work of pure gold. And thou shalt make the seven lamps thereof: and they shall light the lamps thereof, that they may give light over against it. And the tongs thereof, and the snuffdishes thereof, shall be of pure gold. Of a talent of pure gold shall he make it, with all these vessels. And look that thou make them after their pattern, which was shewed thee in the mount.
Jesus as the light of the sanctuary. Is light for His people.
When He left, you know who is the light of the world today? You are! A city set on the hill cannot be hidden.
Jesus is the Light of the sanctuary.
There is nothing in Him that is ugly. Everything about Him is beauty and pure.
Beauty is about symmetrical.
There is beauty and there is balance.
Everything about Him is balance.
Is only Jesus who said give her something to eat.
The son of men who is in the bosom of the Father.
We are in the bosom of Jesus today.
Talent is one of the heaviest measure in the bible.
Of a talent of pure gold shall he make it, with all these vessels.
The Gold Lampstand
“You shall also make a lampstand of pure gold; the lampstand shall be of hammered work. Its shaft, its branches, its bowls, its ornamental knobs, and flowers shall be of one piece.
In order for the church to come forth, He was hammered.
When it comes to the veil, it said skilful works
The Holy Spirit is very careful about words.
Just as many were astonished at you,
So His visage was marred more than any man,
And His form more than the sons of men;
A man without sin and physical defect, He became ugly to give you and I, the beauty for ashes. Out of the hammering came the beautiful church.
If you want to succeed in lives, you want your family life blessed and anything you do to prosper, you must be in sync with heaven. In the middle is always Jesus.
Then I turned to see the voice that spoke with me. And having turned I saw seven golden lampstands, 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.
The branches are you and i.
Out of His sides came you and I.
Marriage is a picture of the church and Jesus.
In His light we see light.
Jesus is in the centre.
Employees do not for the eye service, but do it for the Lord.
Of the Lord we will receive the reward.
Worship is not just singing songs.
We ℓσνє our wives because He first ℓσνє us.
Wives submit to your husbands. Submit as unto the Lord.
Employers treat your employees knowing you have a greater Boss.
It is not about us. It is all about Him. All things were made by Him and for Him.
Always abounding in the works of the Lord not for the Lord. Do what He tells us to do.
It comes of Him and we do it unto Him.
Your gifting is an indication
If you are quiet and you love to write, do it. Don’t do things for money. Money will come.
But these are the ones sown on good ground, those who hear the word, accept it, and bear fruit: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred.”
Light Under a Basket
Also He said to them, “Is a lamp brought to be put under a basket or under a bed? Is it not to be set on a lampstand?
Bed – laziness, pleasure.
Under – hidden
Under a bed -> lazy
Don’t let commercialism drown that light that is in you.
You are doing things just for pleasure. There is a world to be saved and Jesus to be glorified. There is an assignment for you!
Don’t live life looking at stars and falling in ℓσνє with them.
See Jesus and loves your husband and the first ℓσνє will come back.
The 7 lampstands. The most beautiful furniture besides the ark of covenant.
There is something to support. When He is humble, no one thinks of taking advantage of Him.
It is all about balance.
Don’t be like the horse or be like a donkey. Be balance.
There was a time, that God’s people came back from Babylon.
This time they came back without manna, no more kingship. God had to send them back because Jesus was coming.
While they were rebuilding, the enemies were jealous of Israel.
We don’t see the glory clouds, but God is with us.
We know the government today is ordained by God.
The right rule is coming. The Lord Jesus Christ. When He comes, the lion and the lamb will lie together.
Jesus is coming.
God raised 2 young prophets
God is raising a new generation. Is a grace generation!
Before the lamp of God went out
1 Samuel 3:2-4
And it came to pass at that time, while Eli was lying down in his place, and when his eyes had begun to grow so dim that he could not see, and before the lamp of God went out in the tabernacle of the Lord where the ark of God was, and while Samuel was lying down, that the Lord called Samuel. And he answered, “Here I am!”
Eli’s eyes grew dim.
When you forget your sins are forgiven, you are shortsighted and blind.
A church that sees!
Samuel is the picture of grace generation. His mother name means Hannah. Ask of God because of grace.
Believe for big things!
You eat and not full. You drink and not satisfy. Because His house is neglected.
Young prophets prophesied.
Joshua was clothed with dirty clothes.
As the high priest so goes the nation.
Take away the dirty clothes and the robe of righteousness was given to Joshua.
What allowed the power to be was because of self-condemnation.
Vision of the Lampstand and Olive Trees
Now the angel who talked with me came back and wakened me, as a man who is wakened out of his sleep. And he said to me, “What do you see?”
So I said, “I am looking, and there is a lampstand of solid gold with a bowl on top of it, and on the stand seven lamps with seven pipes to the seven lamps. Two olive trees are by it, one at the right of the bowl and the other at its left.” So I answered and spoke to the angel who talked with me, saying, “What are these, my lord?”
Then the angel who talked with me answered and said to me, “Do you not know what these are?”
And I said, “No, my lord.”
So he answered and said to me:
“This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel:
Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’
Says the Lord of hosts.
‘Who are you, O great mountain?
Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain!
And he shall bring forth the capstone
With shouts of “Grace, grace to it!” ’ ”
Moreover the word of the Lord came to me, saying:
“The hands of Zerubbabel
Have laid the foundation of this temple;
His hands shall also finish it.
Then you will know
That the Lord of hosts has sent Me to you.
For who has despised the day of small things?
For these seven rejoice to see
The plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel.
They are the eyes of the Lord,
Which scan to and fro throughout the whole earth.”
In your lives, whatever God has called you to do, God will give you the grace for it.
You just need His spirit.
Great mountains represent anything that will stand in His way.
Don’t be on the wrong side of God.
Don’t come against God.
The great mountain will become a plane.
Shout grace grace!
If you see a mountain, shout grace grace to it!
Grace undeserved and unmerited favour.
The spirit of God released by grace.
He shall bring forth the capstone with His grace in it.
His hands shall finished it.
Gideon was hiding from enemies trying to find food. The Lord appeared to him and called him mighty man! You superhero.
God does not see you the way you see yourself.
He will see to it.
People start prospering when they listen to gospel, the message.
Lately the attack becomes more often. The devil sees you down he will attack you somemore.
Take it how you hear.
The Reign of Jesse’s Offspring
There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse,
And a Branch shall grow out of his roots.
The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him,
The Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
The Spirit of counsel and might,
The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.
7 folds expression.
Your competitors can use their schemes but you use the gifts of the spirit. The gifts are not just for church. Is for businessmen.
You are patient with people and circumstances.
Strengthen with all mights by His spirit. Long suffering (towards people) with joyfulness.
His delight is in the fear of the Lord,
And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes,
Nor decide by the hearing of His ears;
But with righteousness He shall judge the poor,
And decide with equity for the meek of the earth;
He shall strike the earth with the rod of His mouth,
And with the breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked.
Listen. Don’t be moved by what you see and what you hear.
Jesus is never flattered into good opinion
Be independent of people.
You listen you listen to the spirit and the people.
Only in God’s presence, and prosper
In His light we see light.
Supernatural light – the light of the Menora.
For the problem we have today, don’t go to the natural light.
In His light you see light.
The Menora is Almond tree. The first tree to blossom.
Almond means watching over.
One branch has 3 bows and 3 declarations.
9 declarations in total.
Centre one has 4.
9,9,9, 12, 9,9,9
27 + 12 -> 39
In a world that has gone very dark. Jesus was beaten to give us the light of His sanctuary.
This is supernatural.
