We are the righteousness of God in Christ
When you sit under the Word of God, it cleanses you. Cleanses you physical diseases as well. As the word of God cleanses you, you can expect to be healed. This should be the norm. By the foolishness of preaching, God will save!
Thank God, God is restoring the gospel. Message of grace! God send me the testify the gospel of grace of God!
The gospel is based on the work at the cross. He is alive today! Where 2 or 3 gathered in My name, there I am (Jesus)
Christians don’t like mud. Just like sheep don’t like mud. Pig loves mud! As believers, that is not our nature. It does not mean we don’t sin. The more we identify Christ in us.
Jesus receive my sin, in the same way i receive my righteousness in Christ. The more i receive that, the lesser we sin.
We are now the righteousness of God in Christ!
The bread is the healed one. Everywhere Jesus went, those who were sick touch Him and get healed. With Jesus, life and health is contagious!
He is going to impart life!
Wholeness life and health is imparted!
The more we identify ourselves with our righteousness in Christ, it does not mean we don’t sin, but we sin less and less.
By His stripe, we are healed!
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.
Jesus preached in the mountain and He sat down. Matthew 5, Jesus sat down and teach! So Pastor Prince would sit down and preach.
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Jesus said He is the first and the last.
God created. Which God? Jesus!
In everything we put Jesus in the centre, Jesus hold everything together
The force that holds everything together is Jesus.
Put Jesus in our career and our lives, everything is held together.
100% God and 100% Man
Jehovah is made of 3 expression
The God who was, who is and who is to come.
And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me, “Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last. I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death. Write the things which you have seen, and the things which are, and the things which will take place after this. The mystery of the seven stars which you saw in My right hand, and the seven golden lampstands: The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands which you saw are the seven churches.
The book of revelation is 3 parts
1. The things you have seen
2. The things which are
3. The things which will take place
The book of revelation is exactly 22 chapters. Hebrew has 22 letters
The house of God.
Hei is grace.
Everything good found in chapter 5, hei
Chapter 6 Jesus came for His saints
Chapter 19, Jesus came back with His saints
(Which means the rapture took place already)
The stars are the angels of the 7 churches. All the 7 stars of the 7 churches are the leaders.
All the 7 churches are found in Turkey.
These 7 churches represent church history.
What is first love? First love is not my love for God. God loves us first. We loved because God first loves us. When we fall, we forgot God loves us. Fell means we were on higher ground previously. Repent means change your mind.
My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.
Never in greek here is double negative. Is never in any ways! No never!
Once you are born again, you are never perish!
God means what He said.
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.
The will of My Father. Believe on Jesus and we have done the will of His Father
The judge makes Himself my righteousness.
We cannot lose our salvation. They shall never perish. God does not change His mind.
Those who said that when we preach grace is a license to sin, read josephprince.com on all the testimonies.
Someone said her husband finds Pastor Prince sermon offensive because he always share testimonies of people delivered from pornography!
Unless we are perfect, we need a net. The righteous man fall 7 times and the Lord upholds him with His hands.
The idea of making people secure they will sin more is not from God.
Professor (outward talking) vs Possessor (having revelation inside out)
Is it possible to have church with unbelievers? Yes all the time.
1 John 2:18-19
Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.
Teach a parrot a parrot can say Jesus is my Lord. It is not about processor.
We want the person to have revelation.
So the servants of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?’ He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ The servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’ But he said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.” ’ ”
The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels. Therefore as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of this age. The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!
It is possible to have sinners to be in church but not believers.
You believe on Christ you are saved!
1 Corinthians 5:9-11
I wrote to you in my epistle not to keep company with sexually immoral people. Yet I certainly did not mean with the sexually immoral people of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world. But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner—not even to eat with such a person.
Claims to be believer.
1 Cor 5:9-11 NLT
I meant that you are not to associate with anyone who claims to be a believer yet indulges in sexual sin, or is greedy, or worships idols, or is abusive, or is a drunkard, or cheats people. Don’t even eat with such people.
If the people come to church to cheat people, and claim to be believer, they drop dead.
God is a good God and Jesus died for us!
There are people who are saved and who has influence as pastor, but they are not saved.
For us no worries, we are saved
We said my God supplies my needs.
It is all about Jesus!
Not we are rich and we lack of nothing.
“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes shall not be hurt by the second death.” ’
But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
God call us saints.
As believers we don’t want to sin.
When you are secure and loved, you loved! People who are loved best, love others best!
The first thought that comes when you fail, is not about what sins we have done.
Sanctification comes after righteousness
Eternal security. Everyone who is born again will not be hurt by second death.
He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.
In the eyes of God, those clothing (robe of righteousness) we have, the devil are afraid.
To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.
1 John 5:4-5
For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
The wealth of the sinners is laid for the righteous
Trust the Lord and trust His ways.
What is it profit the man who gains the whole world but loses his soul.
God will leave His people without assurance.
When we pray, God hears our prayer.
Use the name of Jesus, speak on the condition
Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.
“To the angel of the church of Ephesus write,
‘These things says He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands: “I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars;
Love is not about feeling. Just being romantic even though you don’t feel it.
Do the first works. Start remember first work and feelings will come.
God makes us with feeling but He don’t want feeling to rule over us.
God gives influence. It is something we can’t make happen.
God let none of His words fall to the ground. Let God gives us the influence.
The church has works and labor and patience, yet the Lord is not pleased.
“I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars;
1 Thessalonians 1:3
remembering without ceasing your work of faith, labor of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ in the sight of our God and Father,
1 Corinthians 13:13
And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
Motives are very important with the Lord.
let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.
For the law, having a shadow of the good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with these same sacrifices, which they offer continually year by year, make those who approach perfect. For then would they not have ceased to be offered? For the worshipers, once purified, would have had no more consciousness of sins.
Will of the Father is to believe on Jesus
One offering for sin forever.
Once and for all purified will have no more consciousness of sin.
Sin has been removed by the blood of Jesus Christ.
Hope is the positive expectation of good!
We have faith, hope and love!
Grace is the true gospel. Gal 1
Paul’s time is grace is the true gospel
Dangerous to come against the gospel of grace.
Only by His blood we can be saved.
Abraham believed God without works.
Justification by faith without works (before God)
Justification by works (before man)
Are you saying we need to add some works?
Abraham became righteous long before his son came!
How can we believe right and do wrong?
