Sermon Note (1st svc)
God is a God of miracle. He transcends natural.
You have bad reports from doctor but God is a God of miracle. He made and redeem your body. God loves you. You are not alone. You are not a face in the crowd. He knows exactly what you are going through. He knows it.
He knows everything about you and He loves you.
God knows all about you and God loves you. He sent His Son to die for your sins. Today 2000 years ago He died for you.
And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
God is my Father and Pastor imagined Him as old and white hair. He asked why he sees Him like that ? Up here in heaven, no one is old.
Man become old because of sin. The wages of sin is death. Up here in heaven, they are all forever young.
You live in Him, you will be forever young.
You can live today and live forever young.
Those who ends up in hell still live forever.
Eternal life is uncreated and disease-free. The gift of God is eternal through our Lord.
We sin because we are sinners. We are born with sin.
Our lives are linked with our father, grandfather and on and on. If your grandfather died when he was 5 years old you will not be here. Our lives are linked.
God is not holding back on you.
God always give more than enough.
Everything that is beautiful and good to eat in Eden.
Eat freely from every tree but don’t eat from one tree.
God made man not like a robot. God made man in His image. God gave man free choice. You cannot give someone with free choice and everything good.
God put one tree and asked Adam and Eve don’t eat from that tree.
Penalty of sin is death physically and eternally.
When man took from that tree, man is cut off from Him.
God is a righteous God. If there is no law in the universe, the world will collapse.
God is holy, righteous and God is is ℓσνє!
Jesus rose from the dead, He conquered death for you and I. God count death as enemy.
Jesus wept because He knew this is not His Father’s plan
Death has been conquered by Jesus Christ. Jesus rose up bodily. Our sin has been put away.
God hates sin but God loves you. Sin is destroying good in your lives.
Fame and fortune is not everything to life.
God ordained a system
Moses is a servant, not a son of God. Jesus is the Son. The 10 commandments was given through a servant, Jesus came. This is personal.
The law was given from a mountain through angels and the mountain was veiled in dark clouds. Moses was trembling exceedingly.
We are not under the law now. We are under grace. The law demands, grace supplies.
Under law God demands righteousness from sinful man. Under grace, God said take the gift of righteousness.
First miracle in Old Testament was turning water into blood.
First miracle Jesus did was turning water into wine.
Under law, God said He will by no means pass by your sin
Under grace, God will remember your sin no more.
The law said do do do
Grace said done.
Even when you lust for someone in the heart, it is committing adultery
This is to bring to the end of ourselves and we see our need for a Saviour.
God never meant for man to die or to grow old. Sin came in. Sin will cause u more than u want to pay.
Get Jesus in your life.
Jesus Christ today is our High Priest.
Priest represent God, looking for blemishes and sin in the lamb. The priest does not look at the sinner, but examine the lamb
It must be without blemish. It represent Jesus Christ. Jesus is sinless and no blemishes.
No imperfection. No sin in His body.
Jesus is the most attractive of 10,000. An expression of most attractive of all.
When it comes to God, God is not asking how good are you, He is asking how good is your Lamb.
The priest sees that the lamb is good and he will give the sinner a knife.
The offerer (sinner) lay hands on the lamb (as an identification) and all his sins and diseases are transferred to the lamb that is without blemishes and he becomes blemished. He carries the offerer’s sins.
He then kill the lamb.
ℓσνє is not ℓσνє until you give it. ℓσνє gives. God gave His Son when the world don’t care about Him.
God used the cross as a mean that Jesus becomes the Saviour
This lamb carries my sin. Sin is covered every year.
Now is not just covered, our sin is taken away by the blood of Jesus.
The fire represents God’s judgement.
Today there is no more fire from God. Jesus took your death and my death. This is not religion, this is relationship and reality.
Blessings are on the head of the righteous,
But violence covers the mouth of the wicked.
Blessings and blessings will come on you when you are in Christ.
After the sacrifice is been consumed, the offerer walked away different. Everywhere he goes, favour abounds. He has favour with God and man. He has peace in his heart.
You walk away different than when you first came in.
Jesus avenge your sin and your enemy who hate you. He defended you. This is truly the end game.
When the settlers in mid west were looking for homes and they travelled in wagons for safety
They travelled in groups.
They saw the fire was coming very fast. They could not run fast enough.
They build a fire at the back, creating a path that is dry. They stood at the burnt place.
They are standing where the fire has been. So they will not get burnt.
We are standing where the fire has burnt. We stand before God today, Jesus’s righteousness is transferred to us. God will treat you as if you are Jesus.
The blessings of God will overtake you.
Goodness and mercy will hunt you down.
Jesus come that you may have life and life more abundantly.
The law said if you are a sinner (leper) will contaminate those he touches.
When Jesus met the leper, he asked Jesus if You are willing, You can make me clean. Jesus said I am willing.
The leper knew Jesus has the power. He asked if He is willing.
Under law u touch the leper u become unclean. Under grace Jesus touched the leper and he became clean.
We are like the leper with our sins. Jesus came a long way to find us.
The bible said Jesus Christ is the same yesterday today and forever.
It is a relationship. This is God reaching out to us. Is God coming down and declare His ℓσνє for us.
Jesus took our place and died in our place.
Romans 4:22-25 YLT
wherefore also it was reckoned to him to righteousness.
And it was not written on his account alone, that it was reckoned to him,
but also on ours, to whom it is about to be reckoned — to us believing on Him who did raise up Jesus our Lord out of the dead,
who was delivered up because of our offences, and was raised up because of our being declared righteous.
Believe, don’t try to reason.
Satan is behind all the world’s sorrow.
God gave the earth to man and man gave the earth to the devil.
Jesus said the thief comes to steal but Jesus came to give us life and life more abundantly.
Jesus is a living Christ!
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
