Sermon note (2nd svc)
Lord make me an instrument, an instrument of worship
We are in for an exciting year. When the enemy levels an attack on someone or ministry, it is because the devil is afraid of what is coming out from it.
We use the word favour of God, goodness of God
God is the One who makes the crooked road straight.
As the world gets more and more busy and political correct, don’t allow it to come into your family. Don’t follow the trend of the world. God is the One who far outlast them.
The bible seats in judgement of you. The word of God is powerful. Heaven and earth will pass away but His Word will never pass away!
What God says is still true. With all our advancement we cannot stop death. God never want man to sin because sin raise death. The wages of sin is death but the gift of eternal life starts now! The life in us is eternal life. It is quality of life. Not just live long.
It is the life by which God lives by.
The name Zoe comes from life!
Everything is been redefined. Stay true to the Word of God.
At the turn of 1940s, a boy was looking for his long sheep. He thought he is one of the caves. He thought he finds treasure in one of the caves. He climbed into the cave to find a earthen vessel filled with scroll. This was the Dead Sea scroll. Word for word. Isaiah is word for word. Every letter in place.
Surely Jesus has borne our diseases and carried our pains. The punishment with the view of our well-being and with His stripe we are healed!
Isaiah is a beautiful book.
God has kept His Word.
Isaiah 1-39 ,each chapter presents book of Old Testament
Isaiah 40-66, it is like a book of Matthew in New Testament.
Isaiah 53 talks about Jesus’ suffering
The bible we have in our hands is precious.
God’s perspective is always reality, true reality.
Symptom related to stress.
News is like that, for every good things someone said, there is something bad said about it.
We got the wisdom of God
And we sailed away from Philippi after the days of unleavened bread, and came unto them to Troas in five days; where we abode seven days. And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight. And there were many lights in the upper chamber, where they were gathered together. And there sat in a window a certain young man named Eutychus, being fallen into a deep sleep: and as Paul was long preaching, he sunk down with sleep, and fell down from the third loft, and was taken up dead. And Paul went down, and fell on him, and embracing him said, Trouble not yourselves; for his life is in him. When he therefore was come up again, and had broken bread, and eaten, and talked a long while, even till break of day, so he departed. And they brought the young man alive, and were not a little comforted.
In Creation, God worked than He rested. He rest to demonstrate rest is something holy. He made holy the sabbath.
Stay still and see the salvation of the Lord.
Jesus rose after sabbath.
Jesus rose from the dead.
You start with rest than you work.
We are complete in Christ, now walk you in Him
That walk is because of who we are.
You walk out of the completeness.
Jesus rose on a sunday and from then on they celebrated sundays.
Sabbath is a picture of the rest of old creation
Sunday is a picture of rest of new creation
The only rest is His Son and all that He has done on the cross.
His righteous, divine claims on all of us.
God is not just satisfied. He is pleased with what the Lord has done.
Jesus did it. He did it and it is perfect. Jesus borne our diseases. The emphasis is on Him. He borne it Himself!
The early church came together to break bread.
The early church saw the importance of communion. Take it together.
The purpose of the Lord’s supper.
1 Corinthians 11:20
When ye come together therefore into one place, this is not to eat the Lord’s supper.
Came together to break bread!
Every ministry have been unveiled.
In Christ, in Him, through Him!
All the bible is inspired. All the bible is breathed by God.
A statement from the snake to Adam and Eve, it is truly written but not the truth.
It is God breathed.
Jesus was preaching the kingdom of God.
Paul was used by God.
Matthew Mark Luke and John are kingdom truth.
What is lacking in you, you hear about communion, the importance of praying in the spirit, but God is emphasising the church. At the place where all these things happen.
1 Corinthians 5:1-5
It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife. And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you. For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed, In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
There are believers who are not believers but they park themselves in church to deceive believers.
If you come to church to deceive God’s people, the judgement is great!
Christians sin but they don’t live in sin.
When you find strong judgement in the bible, usually they are not believers.
Withdraw your fellowship with these people. The place of danger, the place where satan is.
In the church there is protection and covering.
People are cutting themselves, grieving, depressed.
Jesus sailed across the sea to find that one man. Jesus went all the way for him. The lost sheep.
People who are set free are in their right mind. They are clothed and seated. A posture of rest at the feet of Jesus.
Jesus was the one who clothed the demonic person whom He delivered
North side of universe there is a entrance that is so beautiful as if they are filled with gems and diamonds. We believe we will be raptured right into there
And there were many lights in the upper chamber, where they were gathered together. And there sat in a window a certain young man named Eutychus, being fallen into a deep sleep: and as Paul was long preaching, he sunk down with sleep, and fell down from the third loft, and was taken up dead. And Paul went down, and fell on him, and embracing him said, Trouble not yourselves; for his life is in him.
Paul was called up to the 3rd heaven where God dwells.
Many lamps. One big lamp is the Word of God
In His light we see light.
We don’t see because we are not exposed to the light.
The entrance to the Word gives light.
We have one light from God’s Word
Another light is holy spirit
Another light is us!
We can see it and we understand things.
In His light we see light!
Sunlight is natural light. Light of creation.
The Lamb will be the light and glory of heaven!
Everything was demonstrated the glory of Jesus Christ. The eagle. God makes everything for His Son.
In the dwelling of Israelis family, there were light.
And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days: They saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for three days: but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.
Those who have light in their dwellings are not perfect.
There are meanings to names!
And there sat in a window a certain young man named Eutychus (good fortune), being fallen into a deep sleep: and as Paul was long preaching, he sunk down with sleep, and fell down from the third loft, and was taken up dead.
Eu means good
Eu is good
Eutychus – someone has good fortune
Hit the mark
Definition of sin is to miss the mark
How good fortune fall off. The good fortune fell down. He fell from higher place to lower place. When we disobey God, we are not going up, we are going down.
The life of someone who depart from the Lord is down and down.
We are always going up.
The story of Dead Sea. Dead Sea is the lowest place on planet earth.
In the lowest places of your children’ life, speak well of them.
When they fail, speak well
The devil will make you think you are going up by cheating and lying.
People who fall, they need to be embraced, not shun.
And Paul went down, and fell on him, and embracing him said, Trouble not yourselves; for his life is in him. When he therefore was come up again, and had broken bread, and eaten, and talked a long while, even till break of day, so he departed.
People who are falling, we are not to shun them.
Healing on the Sabbath
(Mark 3:1–6; Luke 6:6–11)
Now when He had departed from there, He went into their synagogue. And behold, there was a man who had a withered hand. And they asked Him, saying, “Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?”—that they might accuse Him.
Then He said to them, “What man is there among you who has one sheep, and if it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will not lay hold of it and lift it out? Of how much more value then is a man than a sheep? Therefore it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.” Then He said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” And he stretched it out, and it was restored as whole as the other. Then the Pharisees went out and plotted against Him, how they might destroy Him.
Behold, My Servant
But when Jesus knew it, He withdrew from there. And great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them all.
People who are sick are fallen. They never plan to fall. You don’t mean to but you fall.
Not those who deliberately staying in the sin.
The devil is always attacking the shepherd, pray for your shepherd.
There is treasure in earthen vessel
Paul went down. When someone falls, a lot of people want to jump on there.
Paul went down to his level. He did not minister from afar.
Fell on him means embrace
Embrace is very warm.
Falling – either out out for the world or in in for our Lord Jesus
He fell but did not lose his salvation
You are too saved to enjoy the world completely
You have worldliness in you to enjoy the Lord completely
Leaders, embrace them.
The bride and morning Star
The Son of righteousness arises
We are raptured in the morning
The Israel get to see them in the afternoon 7 years
We will be preaching until Jesus comes again!
He will come again as the Son of righteousness.
Bright and morning Star in the New Testament
He is coming!
The northern Star. The first star biggest before the sun rises. In the midst of darkness, He is going to return!
There is light and lamp in the house of God!
Light in your dwelling.
3 years ago this brother and his wife separated. He went to a church and he heard the preaching nothing like before and one day he went to his ex-wife and they realised they were reading Pastor Prince’s books. That day they went out after 6 years, and his wife wanted to reconcile and they are back together again. They are from New York.
From USA. This lady’s husband, Mark, went for hospital scan. He was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. The doctor said they need to prepare for the worse. They were trusting God. They had faith and peace during this dark time and they took holy communion.
Years later they went back to the hospital for CT Scan and the doctor were shocked, looking at a totally new brain. Mark had been healed! To God be the glory!
God can restore to you the years the locust has eaten. There are no wasted years.
