Sermon Note

Pastor Prince

Caleb is one of my favourite bible character. At his old age of 80, he said give me this mountain. He was strong today as he stood before Joshua

He was as strong

Just like Joshua and Caleb, you are among the minority

The Lord Himself said this, that Caleb has a different spirit

Galatians 3:22-26

But the Scripture imprisoned everything under sin, so that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.

Now before faith came, we were held captive under the law, imprisoned until the coming faith would be revealed. So then, the law was our guardian until Christ came, in order that we might be justified by faith. But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian, for in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith.

When Bible talks about faith is always faith in Jesus Christ

Reformation day is the restoration of the gospel of grace to the body of Christ

The righteous by faith will live

Before righteousness by faith came, we were held captive under the law

The law is until. The law is not permanent

Justified by faith

Declared righteous by faith

Galatians 3:24

So then, the law was our guardian until Christ came, in order that we might be justified by faith.

After righteousness by faith has come we are no longer under the guardian

Galatians 3:29

And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise.

Romans 4:13

The Promise Realized Through Faith

For the promise to Abraham and his offspring that he would be heir of the world did not come through the law but through the righteousness of faith.

Cosmos – A beautiful orderly arrangement

The way God wants it to work out

2 Corinthians 4:4

In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

God will not withhold His Son and give Him for us.

God chose Abraham and cut a covenant with Abraham

Romans 4:13

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.

Is hard to be heir of the world if you are sick. You have to be prosperous and bless others.

It is all included in the heir of the world.

Righteousness by faith that makes you right with God

God said this promise that you will be the heir of the world is not via the law. Is via the righteousness by faith

The law is good, holy and just.

I am for the law for the reason God gave the law.

The law is good for any societies to adopt.

They have progress and become prosperous

There is moral order. But it is all behaviour modification

We cannot be under the law.

Sin through the law became exceeding sinful.

The flesh needs the law to stir up

Romans 7:6

But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.

Dead to sin

We have no power to do good

We cannot but do evil

We are died with Christ and to the law

Romans 4:13-15

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. For if those who are of the law are heirs, faith is made void and the promise made of no effect, because the law brings about wrath; for where there is no law there is no transgression.

The very attempt to do it is to say you are not dead to the law

You want fruit until death or fruit unto life

Be established in His righteousness by faith

Teach based on identity

If we try to keep the law we cannot inherit

Luke 13:16

So ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has bound—think of it—for eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath?”

The moment she is a offspring of Abraham, she ought to be loose from this bound

Luke 19:9

And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham;

Salvation – Yeshua

He believed in Jesus and he became a son of Abraham

When Jesus gave the law, the law showed up what was in the heart

Ought not this woman be loose

I must eat at your house (because you are the soul that needs to be saved)

Galatians 3:29

And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

Galatians 4:1-2

Now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child, does not differ at all from a slave, though he is master of all, but is under guardians and stewards until the time appointed by the father.

Is no different from a slave when you are a child though he is owner of everything

Child – Infant minor or young child

The date set by his father

Laws are given to children

The fundamental

The 10 commandments are the elementary principles

Christianity is a progress from a child to manhood

When we were children we were enslaved to the elementary

When the fullness of time has come, God sent forth His Son

To redeem those under the law so that we may receive sonship

We have been redeemed from the law yet we were trying to go back to the law

Little children young man and father – progressive growth

You are once under the law. The moment Jesus has come, that is the sonship ceremony

Jesus came that we may receive our placement as sons

We died to what we were

We are born again

We are truly born again

That is justification by faith

When i was a child i speak as a child. I understood as a a child

1 Corinthians 13:11

When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

The logic part comes last for the child

A young child cannot see the consequences of their behaviour

For a while we need to adopt rules and regulations for a child

Now we are sons. Full grown sons

God is bringing His people into realisation into sonship

Galatians 4:3-7

In the same way we also, when we were children, were enslaved to the elementary principles of the world. But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.

Abba is not just daddy

It is Abba Father. The most close, homely feel of a family spirit

The name Jesus came to reveal to us is the name Abba

So that we can experience the σνє of God

The name on the forehead for our protection

The name of Father on our forehead. When we look at God we must have Father mentality

Consciousness of Abba

Pray in the spirit of the family

You cannot come to God with fear

The holy spirit is a spirit of truth

You are no more a slave.

Jesus σνє for you just to sit at His feet

He loves to have you in front of Him

The Lord loves to see your face and hear your voice

Sense the Father’s σνє for you

Say Abba Abba

The spirit of sonship will cast out fear

Worthy is the Lamb

We have more than angels.

We can address God as You

Revelation 5:8-12

Worthy Is the Lamb

Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. And they sang a new song, saying:

“You are worthy to take the scroll,

And to open its seals;

For You were slain,

And have redeemed us to God by Your blood

Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,

And have made us kings and priests to our God;

And we shall reign on the earth.”

Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice:

“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain

To receive power and riches and wisdom,

And strength and honor and glory and blessing!”

Angels were never redeemed

God redeemed only us

You have made us kings and priests on earth. We shall reign on earth

The redeemed is the nearest to God

Revelation 5:14

Then the four living creatures said, “Amen!” And the twenty-four elders fell down and worshiped Him who lives forever and ever.

We are the redeemed ones

God will hear your prayers

Have confident that God will hear your prayers

Psalms 24:9

Lift up your heads, O you gates!

Lift up, you everlasting doors!

And the King of glory shall come in.

Sheep go round and round up the mountain like a circle

Circle of righteousness

It is like spiral staircase

Righteousness is not a verb. It is a noun. It is not something we do, it is who we are.

Lead the child slowly

Lead doss not means you don’t discipline them

Green pastures are right on top

As we are going through good time we can afford to say He

Psalms 23:4

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.

The shadow of anything bad cannot hurt you.

When they lead they lead from the front

The sheep finds security

We lead the way and they follow us

At night time they go in the middle

The shepherd will show he is in the centre

The Lord is closer to you than you think, especially when you are going through trials.

During a dark period, is YOU are with me. Is no longer third party- He

First and foremost pray

Has direct interaction with the Lord

Talk to the Lord

Going thru a trial, lack, but He is going to be there closer than your breath.

You are with me, Lord

You are my Shepherd, i will not lack.

No more in the third person, he. It is “you”

Your rod and your staff they comfort me

The rod and the staff is for sheep that fall.

The Lord knows you are going to fall.

Even if you fall from grace He will bring us up

The rod is for the wolves

You prepare a table before me in the (against my enemies)presence of my enemies

It means the Lord prepare a table

The table is the holy communion

Surely goodness and mercy shall pursue me all the days of my life and i will dwell in the house of the Lord forever

Is the spirit

Is it a spirit of slavery or sonship

God looks at the heart

Repossess the spirit of sonship

Don’t go by emotion. Emotion will lie to you

Abba, the name Jesus came to reveal

Holy Spirit will bear witness in you
