Sermon note (3rd svc)
Jesus loves you.
God did not spare His Son, the Son that He loves. God opened the heaven to tell His Son, He is His beloved Son, and He did not spare Him for you and me.
Repentance towards God means change your mind towards God. God is for you! He is not against you. Emphasise GOD is for me, God IS (right now) for me, God is FOR (not against) me, God is for ME (me)
God loves you. He knows you by names. He takes the time to number the hair on your head.
God takes time to number your hair. He cares for any little things. If it concerns you, it concerns God! He cares! Casting all your cares to Him because HE CARES FOR YOU!!
Look at the lily of the valley
U grow more and more by realising how weak you are and how strong He is.
U know u r growing more spirituality when u r more carefree!
Don’t worry about your growth. The only thing that will hinder growth is your worries.
In the midst of all problems, God is in control!!
Your eyes are fixed on that you can see.
The key word is LOOK!
Look unto Him – spiritual looking
Less and less dependent on physical and what can be seen
Look at what the devil is doing all around the world, reverse it and you know what God is doing.
God is releasing an anointing to unite His people together.
God is releasing a new anointing of healing to the whole world.
Champions are been born. When God is doing something, He is doing almost invisible.
When our heartbeat is invisible, not tangible, it means we are healthy.
We are the children of God.
That which is seen is temporal. That which is unseen is eternal.
Our Lord never leave us nor forsake us.
Gospel of Luke
Spend time reading the gospel. Focus on all miracles of Jesus in the 4 books if you are sick.
A leaper asked Him, Lord if you are willing..heal me. The Lord not only heal Him, but touched him. No one would wanna touch a leaper. Jesus did!
God uses personalities. God does not bypass your personalities. God makes us different. God thinks of us like nobody else.
Kingdom of heaven u only find in Matthew.
John lean on the heart of Jesus.
Gospel of Mark is about the Perfect Servant. God chose the servant who failed to write about the Perfect Servant.
Book of Luke is a gentile. He also wrote the book of Acts. He is a doctor.
Gospel of Luke is about the Perfect Man. God comes in the flesh.
The emphasis is divine.
Luke starts with Adam. Because it is the gospel of the Perfect Man. The doctor is intimate with the making of man.
The Man who came to earth. The Son of man.
The order is not historical. Is spiritual.
The Words of God is not theory. Is certainty!
Fixed on the Word.
Only the bible can give you rock-solid certainty.
that you may know the certainty of those things in which you were instructed.
John’s Birth Announced to Zacharias
There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the division of Abijah. His wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elizabeth.
The priest represent people to God. Priestly grace.
All the books in the bible are about the first part. What it opens up with, tell u about the theme of the book.
The Ritual for Cleansing Healed Lepers
Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “This shall be the law of the leper for the day of his cleansing: He shall be brought to the priest. And the priest shall go out of the camp, and the priest shall examine him; and indeed, if the leprosy is healed in the leper, then the priest shall command to take for him who is to be cleansed two living and clean birds, cedar wood, scarlet, and hyssop.
The leper brought to the priest. Someone brought him. The holy spirit brought us. The priest GO OUT of the camp.
The priest will leave the camp. If Jesus never left heaven glory, we will be finished.
God loves us. He left heaven’s glory for us!
When we know is Jesus, it opens up!
The priest was struck dumb. When you learn to lift Jesus up, is an incense to God! It is all about Him! Life is better and less painful when it is all about Jesus
We are all self-centred. We judged based on wrong compass.
The oldest book in the bible in the book of Job, it says the earth is round!
Circle of the earth! All these are old testament.
The oldest book says the moon shines not, it reflects.
Focus on redemption!
Priest burning incense. When your centre is right, all will become right! Put Jesus in the centre of your life!
The importance of reading the bible for yourself.
The gospel of Luke opened with dumb priest. Ends with Jesus audibly blessing us
So they made signs to his father—what he would have him called.
And he asked for a writing tablet, and wrote, saying, “His name is John.” So they all marveled. Immediately his mouth was opened and his tongue loosed, and he spoke, praising God.
Our Priest today speaks! He blesses us and hear our cries!
John means Jehovah is grace
The moment grace possesses you, u can’t stop talking about grace! Praising God! You will praise God!!
Writing tablet. Exodus 32 first mentioned.
God demand righteousness from us in the old testament.
When they are not law conscious, God’s supplies take over!
We don’t have to be hard up.
And He led them out as far as Bethany, and He lifted up His hands and blessed them. Now it came to pass, while He blessed them, that He was parted from them and carried up into heaven. And they worshiped Him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy, and were continually in the temple praising and blessing God. Amen.
Praising and blessing God!! We are not dumb and we can hear God! We have a high Priest that hears us and blesses us!
Luke chapter 1 opened with 2 witnesses. It ends with 2.
God’s best is to take them out of themselves. The way He got them out is to talk about Jesus
It is more important for them to see Jesus in the scripture even though He was there physically!
Faith is looking at Jesus. Faith spring eternal.
“Command the children of Israel that they put out of the camp every leper, everyone who has a discharge, and whoever becomes defiled by a corpse.
Book of Luke showed this order!
1. The leper came to Jesus, Jesus cleansed the leper.
2. The lady who had a discharge
3. Raise the dead
Death cannot exist in His presence.
We are no more under the law we are under grace!
Numbers with God is important. Not numerology because that is satanic
Therefore let us go forth to Him, outside the camp, bearing His reproach.
13 words, what is the middle word? HIM is the middle word. See Him!!! See Him and we will be blessed, delivered and long life!!!
Seeing Jesus will cause u to live long. Seeing Jesus will make you strong, with Joy! Change the situation around.
Whatever we do, do it for the Lord. Of the Lord we shall receive our rewards.
To Him! Step outside the camp in grace
Who cares about men’s reproach when we can have God’s favor!
The One who loves me gave Himself to me!
Moses was one hundred and twenty years old when he died. His eyes were not dim nor his natural vigor diminished.
What we want for ourselves. What is his secret?
By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king; for he endured as seeing Him who is invisible.
See Him who is invisible! Endured from the word power! Strong, strength! He remain powerful and strong by seeing Him who is invisible!!
Endured from the greek word. Physical strength and power! Remain strong by seeing Him who is invisible!
Seeing Him who is invisible, this is very important.
Every word in the bible is inspired of God but not every part of the bible is gospel!
Gospel is good news.
The repentance i need is supply by Jesus.
When comes to creation, God gives one shoulder, but when come to redemption, God gave both shoulders.
Repentance is consenting to be saved and loved by God.
1 John 4:17
The Consummation of Love
Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.
We have a high Priest, as He is, so are we in this world!!
Take your eyes off yourself. As He is, so are you in this world!!!
Look at Jesus! As He is, so are we!
Believe God for healing. As He is (present tense), so are we in this world!
Transformed from the same image from glory to glory!
He is the One we look at! Helping people more than we can ever dream of!!
Lord Jesus as You are young and strong, so am i in this world!
Keep on looking at Jesus with every symptom
Fight of faith! The only thing we can’t have right now is the glorified body Jesus has in heaven now.
As Christ died for sin once and for all, we are alive from the dead! Resurrection life has already began!
Dead is behind us, glory is in front of us!
Have the throne attitude!
Don’t give up. More looking at Jesus! Keeps on hearing sermons, point to Jesus.
Luke 18,19 not historical order
The Parable of the Lost Sheep
Then all the tax collectors and the sinners drew near to Him to hear Him. And the Pharisees and scribes complained, saying, “This Man receives sinners and eats with them.” So He spoke this parable to them, saying:
“What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost until he finds it?
Luke 18, the rich young ruler was given law and his heart was shut and he went off and could not give anything
Luke 19, Jesus called the tax collector’s name and invited Himself to his house and he repented and even return money. He was not given law.
The more we preach forgiven, the more we are rightly judge. Those who were forgiven much loved much!
Tears rained on Jesus’ feet. Jesus turned to the woman and said your faith have saved you.
Jesus does not condemn people who are sick. He sees them as an ox who has fallen into the pit. Isn’t Jesus beautiful?
