Sermon note (2nd svc)
Jesus has come to give you beauty for your ashes. The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.
If you have dark thoughts and bad imagination, worship the Lord yourself. Don’t let the worship leaders worship for you.
Receive from the Lord. When dark thoughts, worrisome thoughts and feeling come, only Jesus can help and rescue you. Only Jesus can set you free. Whom the Son set free is free indeed. Free to think to feel and to follow the Lord.
Only when you r free, u can be free to obey.
Grace set u free so that u have the love-choice to follow the Lord. It is not that kind of demon-possessed kind which you cannot help and bond.
Jesus travelled all the way to find the most demonised man. He heard that cry and went all the way across the sea. He was bond with chains. Jesus spoke one word,” Go” and all the demon left.
Jesus can set you free! Jesus is here now. The Lord is the same yesterday today and forever. What He did yesterday He will do today. He is going to set you free.
Ur thinking can affect ur kidneys.
Liver restored, glory restored
Believers cannot be demon possessed.
Jesus specialises in making beauty out of ashes. You feel clean inside and outside. God makes u spirit soul and body.
You are designed to operate by love. Everything in your body response when you walk in love.
The deliverance of mind from the power of the enemy.
We are in a warfare.
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints—
Not all sickness is caused by demon spirit. Jesus ministered to a woman who was bound by spirit of infirmities for 18 years. Jesus spoke to the woman, not to the spirit.
Jesus set you free and the demon goes.
All the spiritual blessing. Walk worthy. You are a prince and princess, walk like one.
Seated with Christ. Our position is rest. Start from rest.
Sit and Walk and warfare
We stand because we have victory ground.
We don’t pray from defeat. We pray from victory not for victory.
Don’t lose your place. Don’t pray out of desperation.
See His love reach out to us.
Wrong believing is the area the devil can attack.
Belt – hold up your pants, not just that, but to hold up the weapons (sword)
Armour of God. Not our armour
Breastplate of righteousness-
Every piece here has got to do with gospel.
The enemy aims at your heart to condemn us. Be established in righteousness. The heart is not the spirit but it involve the spirit.
Inward man known as the heart.
This must be protected knowing we are the righteousness of God in Christ.
Righteousness and justice are the foundation. Is the firm footing. When we have the gospel of peace, we have firm foundation.
It is by the obedience of Christ.
Above all, taking the shield of faith!
Shield here has the idea of even covering your back.
Dart is the word for fiery arrow, missiles of the enemy.
The devil shoot missiles into your mind.
(For they could not endure what was commanded: “And if so much as a beast touches the mountain, it shall be stoned or shot with an arrow.”
God provided manna. God took care of them not because they are good but He is good.
When God came down there was appearance of fire.
1 Peter 5:8
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
Adversary is the word satan.
The one who points out your fault – satan.
The only plead is the blood of Jesus!
Make sure your armour is on.
How many want to quench all the fiery darts?
Pray in the spirit, pray in tongues and you can quest all the fiery darts.
A couple of months ago, a lady went for mammograms. They found something irregular. She remember Pastor Prince message on praying in tongues. She prayed in tongues.
The doctor was not able to find what they were trying to look for.
Her mammograms look regular! Praise the Lord!
One of the best ways to fight your fears, anxious thoughts, is to pray in the spirit.
Pray in the spirit.
You are like a fireman putting out the fire when you pray in the spirit.
Shield of faith
Helmet of salvation – receive the helmet of salvation
Praying always in the spirit.
By means of. Through the channel of.
Receive the utterance of God. Receive by praying in the spirit.
1 Thessalonians 5:8
But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation.
All the pieces of the helmet has got to do with the truth.
Love one another as I have loved you.
We are called to function in love.
Forgive the person for our own sake, regardless of what they have done to you.
We love because He first loved us.
You shall know the truth and the truth will set you free. Gospel truth. Christ came to die for our sin
For by one offering He has forever sanctified us. Perfected forever.
When we come to God we do not have sin-conscious.
The more you come to Him, the more you live.
As long as you have you communication, you can call for help. Pray in the spirit keeps that line in the headquarter.
Don’t feel you are alone.
Are you believing right?
There is a teaching that says believers can be demonised. A christian cannot be demon possessed. But you can be attacked outside
You are a temple of God. But you have a shield of faith!
The devil can quote bible but is never accurate.
Believers, our sins are forgiven. We have forgiveness of sin.
God saw our entire life. God sees your life until the day we die or rapture.
Those who know they are forgiven much will love Him much.
Helmet of salvation was no longer there when the mind is attacked.
Father’s hands and Jesus’ hands are covering us. We are completely protected.
The Word said He gives us eternal redemption. Eternal spirit. Everything Jesus touch is eternal.
1 Corinthians 1:9
God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
God is faithful, not us. Is based on His faithfulness.
We are forgiven and forgiven forever
Nothing can pluck us out of Jesus’ hands!
We can NEVER perish.
Sinners cannot renounce the devil. He is still unsaved.
1st Adam disobedience and make us the sinner.
2nd Adam – Jesus’ obedience save us
The law kills and the spirit gives life.
The spirit declares the wonderful works of God.
It is all about Jesus and who we are in Him.
For He put on righteousness as a breastplate,
And a helmet of salvation on His head;
He put on the garments of vengeance for clothing,
And was clad with zeal as a cloak.
According to their deeds, accordingly He will repay,
Fury to His adversaries,
Recompense to His enemies;
The coastlands He will fully repay.
So shall they fear
The name of the Lord from the west,
And His glory from the rising of the sun;
When the enemy comes in like a flood,
The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.
“The Redeemer will come to Zion,
And to those who turn from transgression in Jacob,”
Says the Lord.
“As for Me,” says the Lord, “this is My covenant with them: My Spirit who is upon you, and My words which I have put in your mouth, shall not depart from your mouth, nor from the mouth of your descendants, nor from the mouth of your descendants’ descendants,” says the Lord, “from this time and forevermore.”
God saw those who depart from evil make themselves a prey.
God put on righteousness as a breastplate.
Vengeance against our enemies.
The revelation of the glory of the Lord is from the rising of the sun.
It starts with our mouth.
He will put His words in our mouth. Praying in the spirit
Taking away our sins is equal to us praying in tongues
Praying in the holy spirit, keep yourself in the love of God. Keep yourself in the sense that God loves you.
Praying in the holy spirit keeps yourself in the Love of God.
We are all forgiven forever. We now have the truth that we are the righteous in Christ.
Gospel truth. The faith is referred to justification by faith.
You are the righteousness of God in Christ.
Stop believing wrong. You stand before God. We are sweet fragrance of Christ. God wrap us up in the armour of Christ.
Put Him on. Realise He is your new identity.
Your righteousness is in heaven. Jesus is in heaven and your righteousness is in heaven.
