Sermon note (2nd svc)By Pastor Mark
Secret to health and provision
It is always about God’s love for us that we always fall in love with Him!
The greatest need for the body of Christ is food and second is rest. Jesus wants us to feed on Him. God’s delight is His Son. Exalt Jesus and God will exalt our lives!
5 Cs that mum does is
Control her tongue (prevent herself from saying death..and any curse)
Curses become blessings esp during chinese new year
Invite all to see down and rest and feed.
Our heavenly Father created everything in 5 days. His end in mind is about men! He created men in the 6th day and on the 7th He rested.
Despite men’s failure, God looked for men. Despite we fail, God loves us. God is pursuing through history.
God is the One who initiated reunion.
God called us the lost sheep because we belong to Him.
2 Corinthians 5:18
Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation,
2 Corinthians 5:19
that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
God wants reunion. God is asking us to come back to Him.
Unless we see God’s heart, we cannot rest.
2 Corinthians 5:20
Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.
God is asking us to come back.
God needs a sacrifice. For someone to take our sins.
2 Corinthians 5:21
For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
God is holy God. To reunion with us, God needed to pay. God did not spare His Son. All His anger exhausted at the cross.
Bring out the good news! The food that God’s delight. Jesus, His Son. The glory of Jesus Christ that men can be transformed!!
3 John 1:2
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.
Soul is emotion, thoughts.
Health and blessings can come upon us.
His Son is made poor on the cross so we can be made prosperous!
Unless we see the revealing of His Son, the heart of our Father, we will never understand how much God loves us
In lives we look for food and work, we must know, we don’t need to depend on ourselves. Jesus wants us to depend on Him.
And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.
We depend on Him, we don’t need to “eat ourselves”(depend on ourselves) but we “eat no finish” (depend on Him)
We are greatly blessed highly favored and deeply loved.
The food we need to eat is the most important food, the food of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The Lord is our good Shepherd! Not only great shepherd.
The Lord the Shepherd of His People
A Psalm of David.
The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
The Lord wants to provide us everything that is good!!
He makes me to lie down in green pastures (FOOD);
He leads me beside the still waters (REST).
Without Jesus we can do nothing.
Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!
Let God be God and we rest!
Are we living in the revelation?
Revelation of Rest!
Everyday we can come back to rest.
Gift of righteousness – wear so nice go where? Go to see the King Jesus!
Rest is always by hearing and hearing!
Food and rest together!
Listen to the message of rest!
Listen our ways out of our problems!
Green pastures – food.
Green – new covenant
Rainbow – no judgement on His throne.
For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.”
He was raised for our justification!
1 Thessalonians 5:12-13
And we urge you, brethren, to recognize those who labor among you, and are over you in the Lord and admonish you, and to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake. Be at peace among yourselves.
Never forget the vessel. Grateful to the vessel that God use to feed us in our church! Grateful to Pastor Prince for unveiling Jesus to us for us to fall in love with Jesus!!
Understand the value. When we know we are forgiven much, we love much!
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
Letter kills but the spirit gives life!
1 Corinthians 15:34
Awake to righteousness, and do not sin; for some do not have the knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame.
To sin not is to awake to our righteousness!
When we know righteousness is a gift!!
Sin not, lack not!
God is all knowing God! That is why the cross is outside of time!
Before Peter denied Him 3 times, Jesus knew it.
Jesus come to fulfil the law. See the holiness of law we will never appreciate how good God is.
All our sins have been punished.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
Rod and staff – longer and shorter and it showed the cross!
God gives us Hope!
For us to have no condemnation, someone needs to pay and Jesus paid for us!!
He come that we may have life and life more abundantly!
We failed and yet God prepared a table of grace!
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
Christians are the anointed ones
福 – with God in it, we are blessed!
Bless coming in and bless going out.
Unless you see how God “count” you
For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.”
When you believe how God “count” you, you have countless blessings!
David Celebrates the Same Truth
But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness,
Why is devil so against justification by faith?
It got to do with our heirship
The Promise Granted Through Faith
For the promise that he would be the heir of the world was not to Abraham or to his seed through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.
Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things (provisions) will be ADDED unto us!
Focus on the Food. Focus on Lord Jesus Christ!
Table is a table of grace in our families.
Jesus’ body is broken for us that we may be whole.
Partake of our blessing!
Say grace to our families. A table of grace to invite our loved ones.
Eat with joy and peace!!
Don’t remind our loved ones what they fail. Remind them of God’s goodness.
Where there is sin, there is abundance of grace!!
Let everyday of our lives be full of abundance.
The Lord is providing for us! He always give overflow! Let us fall in love with God’s word!
The Lord likes to play BIG!!
The glory of the Lord comes!
His light is shinning upon us! The Lord is for us, be restful!
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord
Goodness and mercy follow us, someone needs to pay, our Lord paid!!
ALL the days-EVERYDAY
He will win all the battles for us!!
Surely!! Not maybe!!
Health, provision are all fruits!
Seek Jesus all the days of our lives!!
The house of God always magnified His Son!
Focus on the Lord! Everyday enjoy Jesus!!
See the majesty and glory of our Lord Jesus!!
This is a rest! Our hearts focus on the Lord!
The blessed hope – the rapture.
Enjoy Jesus everyday. All the days of our lives, enjoy Jesus!!
God want the reunion. He wants to have health and provision. God makes us righteous! Proclaim who we are in Christ Jesus!
For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
God wants to save us in every way!
Deliver us from the devil
For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.”
Feast on Jesus! Eat on Him.
As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me.
Feed on Jesus. It is all about Him!!
Grace to live one day at a time.
Am i enjoying Jesus today?
This is rest.
