Sermon Note (2nd Svc)
Whenever a testimony is shared, there is a purpose
Overcame the enemy by the blood of the Lamb and by the testimony
Is what Jesus has done on the cross that cause our bodies to be healed and peace of mind.
Is what Jesus has done on the cross, though He was rich, and yet the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, for our sake He became poor at the cross so that we through His poverty may become rich.
God wants you rich.
Don’t be afraid of that word.
God wants us abundantly supplied. He don’t want us to struggle. It is paid for at the cross.
He has finished all our debts. The ground is sowed. Our sowing is not a debt we owe but a seed we sow.
We are rich through Jesus Christ.
Tithing is not for the world. Tithing is for the rich. God is our Sponsor and our Provider. Tithing is a privilege for those who are rich.
We are rich whether we realised it or not.
When Joshua was old, he conquered until there was no more land to conquer
There is yet much land to be possessed. Not fought over.
The enemies are sitting on our inheritance.
Caleb told Joshua he is as strong today as he was for war, both for coming in and for going out. He said give me this mountain
The way we take it is for the spirit and the faith. The spirit of faith.
Just because we have faith does not mean we have the answer and manifestation
We believe God for it but the manifestation is not our part. It can be 30 fold manifestation
Our part is not to worry about full manifestation. The spirit of faith is what we are looking for.
He went back to His home town. He is a boy who succeeded from His home town.
The world does not understand the ways of grace
If you come from a poor family, a background that is dark, and yet God is using you now.
Then He said, “Assuredly, I say to you, no prophet is accepted in his own country. But I tell you truly, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, and there was a great famine throughout all the land; but to none of them was Elijah sent except to Zarephath, in the region of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow. And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Elisha the prophet, and none of them was cleansed except Naaman the Syrian.”
So all those in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath, and rose up and thrust Him out of the city; and they led Him to the brow of the hill on which their city was built, that they might throw Him down over the cliff. Then passing through the midst of them, He went His way.
David’s brother was jealous of him.
The brothers looked at him and asked who have you left the flocks with.
God can use you. Any of you.
The darker your background the more glory Jesus shine when He uses you.
Peace is not the absence of contrary circumstances. Peace is the peace of your storm.
Many a time God uses people with stormy background.
We are materials for His grace.
Not many who are noble wealthy and wise are used by God. They tend to trust their talent, sponsorship and connection. When you do all that, God does not get the glory.
God wanted Barak to get the victory. A woman gave him the word that God will deliver the enemy into his hands.
We don’t trust God than our victory becomes partial. Judah went to his another tribe. God told him to go first for all his brothers. He invited his brothers along. They could not drive out some enemies because he has irons.
Everything is provided for already.
Behold the jar of meal in your house will not run out. The cruise of oil will not fail.
That is provision for household.
The miracle of provision
He brought out 2 miracles.
When He opened up the scriptures they were not angry with Him for reading. He did not quote the day of vengeance of the Lord. We are in the dispensation of the acceptable year of the Lord.
In the first coming of Christ He brought grace. It is dispensation of grace.
Jesus knew how to rightly divide the Word.
Today this scripture is fulfilled in your ears.
When you preach about how God wants to do things for you, this is gracious words. What God will do for you. That is grace.
What God is doing for us, in us and through us.
It is not about what i have done or am doing or what i will do.
God sent Jewish prophets
Jesus talked about provisions that were granted.
Jesus next talk about healings
None of them was accepted
Under grace, Jesus make the unclean cleaned.
The Messiah has come!
The servant is not greater than the master.
No lepers was cleansed in Israel waiting for Messiah to come.
Jesus cleansed the lepers.
Jesus does not need the river. His Word, His touch alone is enough.
All the elders in the church are under-shepherd. They are not over us but under us pushing us to Jesus
This is what grace does. You don’t want it, He won’t force grace on you. He just walked right through it.
Then passing through the midst of them, He went His way
The bible is more than just going to heaven. There is work to be done here
Provision and healing.
Jesus talked about Provision and Healing.
We receive it when we don’t deserve it.
He depends on the mercy and the grace of God. It was not the goodness of the widow. It was the goodness of the Lord. It is Jesus who provides all these things.
The ones who healed them is now in their midst.
The bible is against the ℓσνє of money. It is not against money.
You can have the ℓσνє of money by thinking money all day long but yet you have not much in the bank.
It does not means God is against people who are rich
3 John 1:2
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.
John knew he was loved by Jesus
John knew God’s heart like no one else.
His wish is not contrary of what God’s wish
Scripture is the spirit writing through Godly vessels
New covenant was not put into effect until Jesus was resurrected
Forgive even as God for Christ’s sakes have forgiven you
Jesus is an expert at using the law to bring an end to yourself
Why would He preach something very strong? This is to bring an end to ourselves so that we know we need a Saviour
Jesus when He was on earth and Jesus when He was glorified
Jesus came first to the children of Israel
The whole world is our field
Unbelievers don’t believe that is why they are called unbelievers
When unbelievers don’t believe and said bad things about church, don’t worry. They are unbelievers
You need to know why God wants you to prosper and be in health
Surely He has borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows;
Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten by God, and afflicted.
that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying:
“He Himself took our infirmities
And bore our sicknesses.”
He bore our sicknesses
Many Healed in the Evening
(Mark 1:32–34; Luke 4:40, 41)
When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying:
“He Himself took our infirmities
And bore our sicknesses.”
Jesus is real!
It takes 5 offerings to depict Jesus’ one sacrifice
The animal is brought to the tabernacle
A very sharp knife was used and with a quick stroke on the vein of the animal and it loses consciousness and died. It was painless for the animal
Jesus suffered in pain. He was tortured before He was put on the cross.
With His stripe, we are healed.
There is something beyond the sacrifices in the temple.
It was not a mistake He was tortured before He was put on the cross.
As sure as the stroke fell on His back, as sure as your cancer died
The Father wants you to have healing more than you want to have it.
We have a better covenant
Everyone who has lost a child is not lost. The child is growing up in the heaven.
We all have our challenges and we don’t seem to see the manifestation. Does it means we forget ?
Our own personal life we can receive through holy communion
Go back to what we have received
Thank God for those who are saved
Don’t be angry with church that preaches healing. Are we to compromise because a loved one died?
Start preaching the truth
Only ℓσνє will want to take the suffering of another.
Jesus took our diseases. He has done it.
Believe God wants us well
For I am hard-pressed between the two, having a desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better. Nevertheless to remain in the flesh is more needful for you. And being confident of this, I know that I shall remain and continue with you all for your progress and joy of faith,
Paul knew something we need to learn.
He has power to put death at bay
Rapture generation we will be alive and remain
Remain denotes power
We are not going to overcome spiritual death
quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, became valiant in battle, turned to flight the armies of the aliens. Women received their dead raised to life again.
Others were tortured, not accepting deliverance, that they might obtain a better resurrection.
Redemption from God and not from man
In whom we have redemption through His blood
Is always from God, not man
Redemption and deliverance
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.
Can you be the heir of the world and you are always sick?
All the other lesser blessings are in this blessing, heir of the world
They were trying to obtain by deserving healing.
Obedience is important. We have a new obedience. Obedience of faith.
What is obedience of faith?
Right believing. Right believing will produce right living.
All who came to Jesus was healed and they were hard core sinners. If sins can stop God’s grace, it will not have begun. Grace is bigger than sin.
You are God’s children
What is the righteousness of faith?
Keep on confessing i am the righteousness of God in Christ.
We will inherit effortlessly the more we confess.
Don’t disqualify yourself by trying to earn it.
The promise to Abraham was not through the law, but they were trying to get through the law.
Go out of here confessing i am the righteousness of God in Christ.
Devil will try to stop you and make you believe in your head and not in your heart.
Faith needs to be fed the word of God. Keep on hearing.
Beloveds i wish above all things that you prosper and be in health even as your soul prospers.
