Sermon Note (3rd svc)
It is the year of the latter rain. It means harvest. Harvest is coming your way! During your harvest time don’t go to sleep. It is the time to possess, a time to take.
How you look at God will determine the kind of life you will live.
Even fear is caused by how you see God
This man gave to 3 servants –
5 talents (also means gift) of gold
When he came back,
The first man gave the Lord the glory, the talent He gave him, he multiplied 5 more talents added to it.
Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed: And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.
If you see the Lord as harsh, it will affect you how you use your money and how you serve the Lord.
Fear came in. How you see God.
The mother of all fears come from the way you see God.
The worship of God. The more you worship God, it lengthened your life!
The people who live long goes to church.
We are going to perfect day and we growing younger and younger
How you see God affect many things in your life.
God was healing and providing
God provides in a distance in Old Testament
In New Testament He came
He pardon standing by the sinners saying your sins are forgiven you
He healed everyone in need of healing
He provided food in the midst of people
As He gave His gifts He was in the giving Himself
God in the flesh came but the Pharisees wanted to destroy Him
Your need is your entitlement to His grace
He has all the supplies
Positive and negative attracts.
We are trying to be the positive
As a result, our pretence caused no results.
What do you have in your house?
Be in a one talent or two talents
Small jar of oil
Borrow from your neighbours empty vessels, borrow not a few.
Start pouring the oil
Start praying for someone in need
As you keep on praying, the holy spirit keeps on supplying.
The moment there is no more vessels, the oil ceases.
God supplies is greater than men’s demands
ℓσνє always want to give and share.
You are so wealthy, not been able to pour and give is so painful.
The supply is always greater than the demand.
The spirit of God is on me
You do not need to be poor anymore
The day of vengeance of our God
Our judgement is past at the cross
Where Jesus stops, we learn how to stop
The year where God’s grace profusely abounds
No one can kill Jesus before His time
There were those who were blind who were left blind. If you do not want to avail yourself to His resources, He just move away.
How we view God?
And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a withered hand. And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse him. And he saith unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand forth. And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace. And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other. And the Pharisees went forth, and straightway took counsel with the Herodians against him, how they might destroy him.
God is always smiling at you
That is our declaration, that is who You are.
(Good Good Father song)
This song is inline with new covenant
The law does not flow. No one write songs on law.
It is hard to write songs in the head.
It is always in the spirit
His hand began withered. Mark 1:1
He did not born with withered hands.
They watched Him closely to accuse Him
They knew He will do good. They watch Him closely to accuse Him of healing in Sabbath day
If our christianity is not true, why the people expect us to walk differently
Jesus did not surround to the religious bondages.
We are people with needs. We are all people born with needs. We have no capacity to help ourselves
He is full of compassion. They watched Him closely to see whether He will heel on Sabbath day.
Jesus is not about religion
Jesus is reality
All of heaven come down
His relationship with God
They wanted to destroy Jesus who made another man well.
He was grieved at the hardness of Pharisees’ hearts.
Ministry time –
A brand new heart. God is healing those with high blood pressure. He is bringing your blood pressure to normal.
Those who are standing feel a warmth in your heart now
Jesus is the Healer
The Lord can angry and still perform a miracle
Not all anger is sin
In your anger, do not sin.
God has emotion. Most of the time our anger is selfish and self-centred.
Don’t do the action you feel like doing.
Jesus is men’s Man. He is second Person of Godhead.
His death was not a murder.
He laid down His life and He picked it up again
He has power over death.
The most radiant Man ever lived.
Let the beauty of God be upon us.
What made the Lord angry and grieve
An anger born out of ℓσνє
You are grieved because you want the best for your children
Turn to true God
You are grieved and angry with your children who go to other gods because you know that this will not satisfies them. Turn to the true God.
His anger endures for a moment. His mercy endures forever
The fire of judgement falls on the sacrifice and not on the nation so that the nation is spared.
God will correct you and mould you.
For this is as the waters of Noah unto me:
for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth;
so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee.
For the mountains shall depart,
and the hills be removed;
but my kindness shall not depart from thee,
neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed,
saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee.
God judgement fell on Him. He carried our sins
God has no more wrath for the believers.
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
Rainbow – God will never be angry with us
He swore by Himself He will never be angry with us nor condemn us. This is after what Jesus did.
God looks at the cross and is not moved by our emotions.
The king’s wrath is like the roaring of a lion,
But his favor is like dew on the grass.
The king’s wrath is like a roaring lion
He has no more anger for us
The devil goes around impersonating God that He is angry with us.
He goes about seeking whom he may devour.
Casting all your cares upon Him for He cares for you.
He cares for you.
Healing on the Sabbath
(Matt. 12:9–14; Luke 6:6–11)
And He entered the synagogue again, and a man was there who had a withered hand. So they watched Him closely, whether He would heal him on the Sabbath, so that they might accuse Him. And He said to the man who had the withered hand, “Step forward.” Then He said to them, “Is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good or to do evil, to save life or to kill?” But they kept silent. And when He had looked around at them with anger, being grieved by the hardness of their hearts, He said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” And he stretched it out, and his hand was restored as whole as the other. Then the Pharisees went out and immediately plotted with the Herodians against Him, how they might destroy Him.
And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
What anger Jesus?
Lack of grace
What grieve the Holy spirit
Words that impart grace are words that delight holy spirit
What are words that delight holy spirit?
Wholesome words that minister grace. Grace is underserved favour.
Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
If they deserve it and you say something good to them than that is not grace.
If people don’t deserve it and you say something good to them, that is grace
Grieve appeared only in Ephesians m with holy spirit and Jesus.
Preaching of grace gladden the Holy Spirit
Jesus did all kind of undeserved grace in Capernaum
There are degrees of sins. If there is a greater sins there is lesser sins.
When you reject grace you reject the washing machine that wash your dirt.
Reject grace what do you have?
Pastor preach Jesus. Grace is not a teaching, is a Person
The Lord of glory with all the resources, don’t let Him passes by.
We are in need of all His resources.
Renewal of youth like the eagles!
