Sermon Notes

Pastor Prince

The Lord is been good to us. What a year! A year of latter rain! It is still raining ! Even the year coming to an end, it is not taking away. 

What the Lord says to us He will continue. He is not a taker, He is a Giver

Based on human nature, making it into religion, our idea of God is He is a taker. Our lives is not much to give to anyone. It is Him giving His life for us. 

The less is blessed. The superior bless us

Man is in inferior position. God bless us not we bless Him 

When Melchizedek bless Abraham, it showed Melchizedek Priesthood was higher. 

Hebrews 7

God is not a taker. He is a Giver. 

He supplies us the Word

We can worship Him in spirit 

Look to God as a Giver 

God is a Giver. ℓσνє will correct. 

When the Lord correct His disciples, His favourite is You of little faith

Why did you doubt?

How much more will God clothed u

If God clothed the lily, how much more will He clothes us 

Our taking is so little. 

Oh our capacity to receive more in 2020! 

Faith does not make God gives. 

Faith is the window that allows light to come in. Faith is the hand that takes 

Jesus never rebuke short prayers. But He did rebuke pretentious long prayers

Simple and powerful prayers 

The prayer of Jabez – 15 sec

Prayer for Lazarus to come forth – 1 sec

Jesus spent whole night in prayers, we believe He spent time with the Lord

God answers prayers!

Our God is a prayer-answering God

If we see God as a Giver, we will pray. 

We have not because we asked not 

Man sin against God and the one u obey is the one you are a slave to. 

Authority is more powerful than power. 

All authority given unto Me are heaven and on earth

When we pray, God answers 

We are God’s covenant people. 

Through Christ through His people, God is getting back His people. 

The final message of the year 2019

Glory follows

Grace is underserved favour

The prodigal son spent his money and when his money went out his friends went out. He thought of his father’s house. The servants are well taken care of 

The pig’s food looked good to him. 

The father run to him. He saw his son from afar. 

The father brought forth the best robe and put on the best for him. 

After grace is glory

Justified -> glorified

No more subject to decay or death

Jesus asked His disciples to touch Him

He could transcend a close door. He was no more subject to time. Faster than speed of light

Whole universe is our playground 

The life to come there is something that will go on for eternality

God created everything 

When you blow up something, it becomes chaotic. 

He holds 2020 in His hands. He knows what is in front of us. All He wants is we put our hands in His hands. 

Our assignment is the whole universe. 

Every part of the temple utters glory

Every part of the temple utters His glory

The tabernacle is a picture of what is to come. 

Tabernacle represents grace. The temple of Solomon represents glory. 

The first temple that was built by Solomon 

He overlaid everything with gold

The temple of God must be magnificent 

There are 10 lamp stands added to the temple of Solomon 

You are the living stones of the temple

You need to know your destiny for this year 2020

You are called to a divine destiny. Without you God will not. 

He does things through and for you

God said He has heard their groaning 

The moment they prayed (groaning) it reached the heaven (prayer) 

Without you, God will not do anything. 

A sick person remains sick when no one pray for that person. 

God wants us to prosper

Ask what you want for your children. 

Use your wealth to bless people. 

Lets prosper for His glory

The greatest prosperity is to know the Lord Jesus Christ 

You lose the million dollars that is. But if you have wisdom, you can!

Pray for wisdom. 

I do not know Lord, i need Your wisdom. 

If any of you lack wisdom, pray for Wisdom. 

Passive allowance is still authorising 

Your wife needs a strong man. Not someone who blames her. 

Every woman wants a strong man. You don’t have to disagree all the times. You can flow with your wife but there are times conviction is there. 

1 Peter 2:5

you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

Solomon to build his temple, he built it up from large and costly stones 

1 Kings 5:17-18

And the king commanded them to quarry large stones, costly stones, and hewn stones, to lay the foundation of the temple. So Solomon’s builders, Hiram’s builders, and the Gebalites quarried them; and they prepared timber and stones to build the temple.

All these stones represents you and i !

He went into our darkness to bring us out to become a living stone! 

Universe is a picture of temple 

Our eternal life is more “realer” than this life

Costly stone because it cost God His Son

1 Kings 6:7

And the temple, when it was being built, was built with stone finished at the quarry, so that no hammer or chisel or any iron tool was heard in the temple while it was being built.

You don’t hear the sound of hammer or chisel 

God builds His temple in rest. 

Solomon means rest. 

Rest is progress. 

We got to learn to eliminate the demon of hurry. 

This hurry thing is killing people and relationship 

Most of the people came to this doctor (who discovered stress) clinic. 

All the heart condition patients parked face out (so that it is faster to get out)

The chairs patients sat on it, the front is always worn out. They sit at the edge. They are very tensed even in front of the doctor. 

Stress has an effect on your organs. 

You cannot hear your heartbeat. Your heartbeat rest in between. 

If you can hear your heartbeat beating, something is wrong. 

God ordain the chick without human help will come out. Human help spoilt everything. 

Everything will happen in rest. One step at a time, not rushing for finishing ends 

Longer chewing lesser problems

Temple stones are amazing. Precious limestones 

1 Kings 7:10

The foundation was of costly stones, large stones, some ten cubits and some eight cubits.

15 feet by 12 feet one stone

Not one stone will be left unturned

One of the foundation stone is about 45 feet weight 570 tonnes 

Engineers are still wondering how did they move this stone

1 Peter 2:9

But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;

Holiness looks royal. Look at Jesus in the Bible. His appearance is excellence 

He used His royalty to bless and to set free. Be cleansed, eyes be opened

A professor is someone who profess. Be a possessor. Be someone who possess

We are sons of light!

A living stone -> when you build it into temple, it is a living stone.

David living stone

We did not put in any effort 

We have to be drawn out. He brought us out. 

Remember what He has done for us. 

The hope for the world is the gospel of Jesus Christ 

Testimony –

She grew up without her mother and her grandmother becomes her mother’s role. 

At the age of 16, she was drinking almost everyday. Her grandmother passed away and she went into bad company. At the age of 21 she tried to commit suicide. 

She was admitted to hospital and was put into mental hospital. 

One day she heard a voice said I AM. 

She did not know what it meant until she attended New Creation Church. 

She now knows and know God is saying to her I am here. 

She is 23 years old and completely set free from the chain. 

She was delivered from smoking. 

Her relationship with her family is restored and she has a boyfriend who attends church with her now! 

Mental conditions on the rise. People are drinking more. 

She was rescued from pits of darkness. 

We see because we see the light. 

A drunkard will act like a drunk. 

Sinners sin. 

ℓσνє them. 

Temple of Solomon 

1 Kings 6:7

And the temple, when it was being built, was built with stone finished at the quarry, so that no hammer or chisel or any iron tool was heard in the temple while it was being built.

White inside narrow outside

It brings in the light 

Windows brought within. Narrow without. 

We are all made into the temple of God

Jesus said in my Father’s house is many mansions 

1 Kings 6:6-7

The lowest chamber was five cubits wide, the middle was six cubits wide, and the third was seven cubits wide; for he made narrow ledges around the outside of the temple, so that the support beams would not be fastened into the walls of the temple. And the temple, when it was being built, was built with stone finished at the quarry, so that no hammer or chisel or any iron tool was heard in the temple while it was being built.

Come up higher child of God, there is treasures for you

Stairs there is winding stairs

Ask the Holy Spirit to anoint you, prepare with your pen or pencil and starts designing things. It is not automatic writing

Cedar wood is incorruptible wood

Cedar can go up to 1000 years!

Parasite don’t kill Cedar tree. Cedar tree kills it. 

Church is make up of many members of Christ

1 Kings 6:18

The inside of the temple was cedar, carved with ornamental buds and open flowers. All was cedar; there was no stone to be seen.

Buds – life of Jesus 

Open flowers – resurrection

Don’t be too quick to find faults

See each other glorious

No stones seen. Only cedar. 

Overlaid cedar with gold

God sees us glorious

We are in a high place

What did the stone do?

The stone did nothing 

The stone was in darkness

The stone was brought out into light

Build into temple

Overlaid cedar with gold

Prodigal son received kisses and embrace by the father. He did not need to do anything

The robe was ready, ring was ready, shoe was ready. 

The robe of righteousness 

What the robe was covering, the cedar and the stone. 

The robe was brilliant white

The robe was put on him! He did not need to put on

To see is to do. 

Know how God sees us

We are once dead in trespasses and sins 

We are seated with Christ 

The show is coming! He will show to the ages to come. 

Ephesians 2:6-7

and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

Ephesians 2:19-22

Christ Our Cornerstone

Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.

The stone is a picture of Jesus Christ

We need to have light before we can go to another level of light

A young man lived in a low quarter in a boat. He was sparingly eating what he has. One of the boat steward spoke to him. They asked if he has a ticket. He said yes and said he was too poor to go dinning area. The steward told him the dinning is in the ticket. 

What you don’t know you cannot walk in, even though is yours. 

Be therefore wise and redeem the time

Redeem the time. You can buy back and redeem time. Be wise because the days are evil. 

Don’t pursue things that cannot satisfy. Drinks that does not quench your thirst. 

Let Jesus be glorified in your lives. 

That humble Carpenter. 

The same glory in you and your family.
