Sermon note (1st svc)
This past weeks have been amazing weeks in terms of harvesting of souls. We have 6 youth services and Pastor Daniel is the youth Pastor. Over the course of a week, 5700 people (Christians and pre-believers) come to the service with harvest of 100 souls!
They are our future. Pastor Daniel and Pastor Lawrence. God specializes in uniqueness. There is no duplicates.
This resurrection sunday, the bible said He rose without our sins. He was charged for our sins. He became liable for our sins and took our place. His body on the cross was carrying our sins. He bore our sins and diseases and carried our pain on the cross! 3 days ago He carried our sins. He rose without our sins! Gone! Diseases gone! To walk in His reality.
God sees through we looked at.
He rose for our wholeness, our salvation.
Jesus appeared to Apostle Paul
King of Righteousness gives us righteousness for us in the city of Shalom.
Jesus Himself this cup is the new covenant in My blood for the remission of sins.
Get ready to move out of Egypt. Always partake holy communion with expectancy.
What is the reason that God rise Jesus from the dead?
God hates death. Is never His dream for man. God never meant for man to die and grow old. Is not His dream. The Father’s love plan is for man to be healthy, young forever.
God hates sickness because God hates sin and hates death.
The last enemy to be put under feet is death. Death is an effect of sin. Death is the final vindication of God’s truth.
Death although an enemy to God, is the final vindication. No one can run away. Death vindicate God’s truth.
Today we celebrate resurrection.
Death is but consequence of sin which is a deeper problem.
When you said i am a sinner, Jesus said I am your Saviour.
In our flesh dwells no good things. Believers don’t believe that. Our human righteousness comes to nothing.
but also for us. It shall be imputed to us who believe in Him who raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead, who was delivered up because of our offenses, and was raised because of our justification.
Strongest word for power. God exert the greatest power to raise His Son from the dead. We are in Him. We were crucified with Him.
The cross remove things from us. Resurrection is something that invest in us! Disease is not part of God’s nature.
Everything to do with sin was attached to us. But at the cross all removed!
We are crucified with Christ. The resurrection is positive. It adds!
God raised Christ from the dead and He raise you and me from the dead!
Circle of darkness –
Delivered us because of our offences
Who became liable for our offences? Christ!
He took upon Himself the liability for you and I
He has no personal benefits except He gets us and our family!
Because He is all knowing He don’t stop it from happening because He created us with free will. He don’t make us a robot.
We live in a fallen world. We can come into the kingdom of God where He reign.
He has no sin of His own.
He knew no sin.
He is perfectly sinless.
He made Himself liable. We are not in the centre. He is! He was delivered up for our offences
Circle of light-
Jesus in the centre! He was raised from our justification!
The verse is saying when your sins was bore by Him at the cross, He bore in His soul
How would i know i am cleared of punishment? The person who took our place in the jail comes out and we are acquitted.
If we are not declared righteous, Christ would not have been raised
The main truth is the declaration that we are acquitted.
Act like it! We are someone who cannot be charged with sin!
The bible said declare His righteousness
Because we are declared righteous, Christ was raised!
1 Corinthians 15:17
And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins!
We appeared before God as righteous! Jesus was not raised from the dead because He is God’s Son. God raised Him from the dead when we declared righteous.
We were crucified with Him.
God did not raise Jesus because He is His Son but because we are declared righteous
All our sins are cleared and finished at the cross.
Satan is silenced.
God has to forgive sin righteously
God is just, light and love.
God is righteous
Resurrection is our divine receipt.
Jesus being raise from dead means we are cleared from our sins. We are no more in our sins.
We are actually called in the battle of ages. We become the target of enemy because God loves us.
God works in 3. Even time dimension we have past present future. God is outside time. That is why cross is outside time!
All of us are future when Jesus died.
Arch angels there are 3. Michael, Gabriel and Lucifer
You were in Eden, the garden of God;
Every precious stone was your covering:
The sardius, topaz, and diamond,
Beryl, onyx, and jasper,
Sapphire, turquoise, and emerald with gold.
The workmanship of your timbrels and pipes
Was prepared for you on the day you were created.
“You were the anointed cherub who covers;
I established you;
You were on the holy mountain of God;
You walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones.
You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created,
Till iniquity was found in you.
You were the anointed cherub who covers – reminded of the ark!
So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.
Guidance of God’s righteousness.
Meet the One who is behind all your broken hearts
In the ark, there is 10 commandments covered.
Blood is on the mercy seats. The blood of His Son, God cannot look through.
We are in the tomb. She saw the real mercy seat. The atonement has been made. Mercy rejoice over judgement righteously
And she saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.
Lucifer was created to be guidance of God’s holiness and righteousness
Even though he was fallen, he had a perverted way of thinking he was still guidance of God’s holiness.
The satan’s work many a time is found in churches where God’s law is upheld instead of Jesus’ sacrifice.
God’s law is holy and righteous and perfect and we are not and we cannot that is why we need a Saviour. The strength of sin is the law.
The highest principalities get by without people noticing it.
Those people did not cry out for Jesus crucifixion.
The good gets by without people seeing it.
Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne;
Mercy and truth go before Your face.
What goes before God’s face? Mercy and truth. His throne is established upon righteousness.
Cherubim is the guidance of righteousness.
Daniel was a captive. He rose through the ranks to become the top 3 and government of kingdom of Persia. They were jealous of Daniel. They planned and tried to find fault in Daniel. He prayed 3 times in the open balcony. The king loved Daniel.
All the governors of the kingdom, the administrators and satraps, the counselors and advisors, have consulted together to establish a royal statute and to make a firm decree, that whoever petitions any god or man for thirty days, except you, O king, shall be cast into the den of lions. Now, O king, establish the decree and sign the writing, so that it cannot be changed, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which does not alter.” Therefore King Darius signed the written decree.
They flattered the king. And wanted to create a decree where no one can pray to anyone but the king.
The enemy wanted to take the love of Daniel away from the king Darius.
Daniel was a Godly man.
And the king, when he heard these words, was greatly displeased with himself, and set his heart on Daniel to deliver him; and he labored till the going down of the sun to deliver him.
Daniel did not compromise. The king was greatly displeased with himself and knew he was set trapped by the enemy.
Here we see when love is powerless by the law.
God is holy and King Darius was not.
God used this picture to show us the contrast of His grace and mercy.
Daniel did not die.
Daniel came out of the Den of Lion.
Daniel went in and paid the price. He was out unharmed! The people who set the trap were thrown into the den and they were killed by the lions!
Here we see a beautiful picture.
People coming against grace is a pretension to the law. If you undress her mentally you have committed adultery. We need Saviour! Jesus!
Jesus wrote on the ground. The place Jesus taught, He wrote on stone.
You presume to tell me what Moses said, I am the One who gave the law.
Jesus is the God who stood down to give the law.
He that is without sin, throw the first stone.
He that is without sin throw the first stone. Only One without sin. Jesus! They would if they could but they could not. He could but He would not.
Moses broke all 10 in the first commandment given.
God see the blood that redeem all our sins.
Jesus stood second time. He stood to raise the woman up.
The woman was standing. Is the goodness of God that leads us to repentance.
She was guilty. Daniel wasn’t.
This is God’s law and she was guilty.
The oldest being the guiltiest, from the oldest to the youngest left one by one.
The Saviour and the woman were alone. Jesus said to her, “neither do I condemn you”
Jesus knew He was going to redeem her at the cross.
There is no condemnation. When we receive this, we have the power to go and sin no more.
He who justifies the wicked, and he who condemns the just,
Both of them alike are an abomination to the Lord.
Christ’s sacrifice was a sweet aroma.
God blesses us.
He who justify the wicked and condemn the righteous are an abomination.
We are God’s righteousness. We are now righteous before God. When we receive this gift of righteousness we reign in life.
For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.)
GIFT! Is a gift! Is all done by Jesus!
Abundance of grace! We need an abundance!
Whenever we are self-righteous, we are an abomination.
If you are covered from top to bottom leprosy, then you are pronounced clean.
If we still believe in self-righteous, we are unclean.
He who condemn the righteous is an abomination to God.
What if you condemn yourself? Do you fit in the bill of condemning the righteous?
Now we are righteous we cannot say we are sinners that is hypocrisy.
Jesus received our sin at the cross. At the cross God treated Him with judgement and poured His wrath on Him. Now we receive favor from Him.
God is righteous and He cannot compromise.
God is righteous in making us righteous!
The wisdom of our God!
When the angel of death passed by and the blood on the door post, God said when He sees the blood, He will pass over you. He will not allow the angel of death to come in.
The blood is the foundation for our forgiveness and our protection. His word is our assurance.
Our faith is to know God sees the blood and the judgement passes over us. It is for God to assess the blood. When God sees the blood there is no judgement on me. Is for God to understand and to see.
Many of us condemn ourselves why our prayers don’t work. This is an abomination to condemn yourself.
We must be established we are God’s righteousness.
God Himself will teach us. Great will be our children’s health. In righteousness the father and the mother are established in.
When we are legalistic, we are insecure.
Established in this truth of righteousness.
All your children shall be taught by the Lord,
And great shall be the peace of your children.
In righteousness you shall be established;
You shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear;
And from terror, for it shall not come near you.
This is the greatest humility before God to say we are the righteousness of God in Christ!
Jesus is glorified! He will be satisfied
No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their righteousness is from Me,”
Says the Lord.
It helps you in your business. No weapon formed against you shall prosper. Even if you get sued.
Your righteousness is from Me.
“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.
Kingdom of God is His righteousness…
And all the lower wants will be added to us!
The primary thing is His righteousness
God never see Jesus without seeing me in Him. God never see us without Jesus in us.
We are as righteous as Jesus. To say otherwise is abomination.
If you put the primary thing in the primary place than the secondary thing will be added to you without you seeking for it.
The more you listen to the preaching of Word, you get both primary and secondary thing.
Pursue whether are we Christ’s righteousness -conscious today!
Satan cannot righteously accused
