Sermon Note (4th svc)
We have this weapon and the gospel is your bread and drink and our lives!
The gospel of grace is spreading all over the world.
Pastors of churches making impact all over the world.
Paul said the gospel that was given to me.
Pastor was misunderstood when he preached about gospel of grace.
The house of Saul got weaker and the house of David got stronger
The problem in the world is not anti-God
The problem we have today is anti-Christ
We are no more seeing Jesus as grace. Jesus become a means to an end.
Jesus is the first and the last! Jesus is the Alpha and Omega! The Lord Jesus Christ is God’s greatest Gift.
How would He not with Jesus also freely give us all things?
If God holds back from you your provision, it is saying your provision is bigger than Jesus.
If God holds back from you healing, it is saying your healing is bigger than Jesus
He gives us favour and even eternal life.
He that spare not His own Son but gave it up to us all.
The heaven opened to Jesus at the baptism.
Today you preach Jesus, the heaven open to you.
The Father is proud of His Son. This is My beloved Son in Him i am well pleased
God gave up Jesus for you.
It is important we understand and study the offices of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The greatest knowledge is to know Him. To know thee and Jesus Christ whom thou has sent.
That is the greatest knowledge of all.
All the consequences of sin. With all its consequences. Jesus became our sin. When we become righteous in God’s eyes, it is not by our doing.
Healing is grace gift.
Change the tv u have in your mind.
Change the image you see.
You get stronger and stronger.
The Lord is the strength of my life.
Thank you Lord and healing explode
You are precious. You think you are alone in this fight.
The Lord knows your condition. He spare not His own Son how would He not with Him freely give you.
Yes, again and again they tempted God,
And limited the Holy One of Israel.
We limit Him because of our experience
God is unlimited!
And when He had come into the house, the blind men came to Him. And Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?”
They said to Him, “Yes, Lord.”
Then He touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith let it be to you.” And their eyes were opened. And Jesus sternly warned them, saying, “See that no one knows it.”
Our faith is in Him! Our faith is not in our faith.
Lord if You can do anything help us!
Lord said if you can believe!
Believe that all things are possible to the one who believe
It is not your faith is who you have your faith in
If you can believe
Believe all things are possible to the believing one.
I live by the faith of the Son of God
I live by the faith In the Son of God
I live by the faith of the Son of God – is His faith we believe by!
Jesus became a Man just like you and I.
We have taught faith in such a way we legalise faith.
The law is not of faith.
The problem with faith is that the moment you get law into it.
Instead of putting your eyes on Jesus you put your eyes on yourself and faith cannot operate
No one died from Egypt to Sinai.
Children of Israel from Egypt to Sinai was pure grace, no one died. He brought them out because He is good, because He is faithful.
The Law is about your behaviour and conduct.
There are degree of sin.
The rejection of Jesus Christ is unpardonable sin.
There are degree of sin.
But after they received the law, they murmured they died.
Why did the centurion had great faith?
Centurion came to Jesus to ask for healing who was sick.
One was a soldier one was a home-keeper.
One was at outskirt
Both were gentiles therefore they did not know the law but they know Me
That “wait a minute” about coming short is the law.
The law was our school master to bring us to Christ.
Faith has come and we are no longer under the schoolmaster.
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and ℓσνє one another.
Job’s deliverance came when he prayed for his friend.
The law of first mention, there is something significant happened
First time Abraham prayed for Abimelech who took his wife
An undeserving man prayed for undeserving man and he received healing
The Lord visited Sarah and she was pregnant
Abraham prayed and God opened up her womb
When u pray for people, God can do the same to you.
So the Lord was with Judah. And they drove out the mountaineers, but they could not drive out the inhabitants of the lowland, because they had chariots of iron.
If the Lord is with His people, what about the chariots of iron?
In all your challenges the first thing to go up is praise! Judah means praise!
Something good happen – Praise the Lord
Something not good happen – Praise the Lord anyway
The Continuing Conquest of Canaan
Now after the death of Joshua it came to pass that the children of Israel asked the Lord, saying, “Who shall be first to go up for us against the Canaanites to fight against them?”
And the Lord said, “Judah shall go up. Indeed I have delivered the land into his hand.”
So Judah said to Simeon his brother, “Come up with me to my allotted territory, that we may fight against the Canaanites; and I will likewise go with you to your allotted territory.” And Simeon went with him. Then Judah went up, and the Lord delivered the Canaanites and the Perizzites into their hand; and they killed ten thousand men at Bezek.
When God called you He will equip you
There was victory
When you limit God, your victory is limited.
If you don’t trust God, it will show up
Ask God first before you ask the opinion from
Man can make mistake. Ask the Lord first.
Don’t run to the doctor first. Go to the Lord first. Doctors can make mistake.
Your trust is in the Lord.
If you believe God for a child who said you cannot go for IVF.
Go to the Lord first
Every good even medicine, perfect gift is from above.
Take medicine that doctors prescribed you, and not on your own
Barak means lightning
And the children of Israel cried out to the Lord; for Jabin had nine hundred chariots of iron, and for twenty years he had harshly oppressed the children of Israel.
Now Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, was judging Israel at that time.
She appointed a man to fight.
and against you I will deploy Sisera, the commander of Jabin’s army, with his chariots and his multitude at the River Kishon; and I will deliver him into your hand’?”
And Barak said to her, “If you will go with me, then I will go; but if you will not go with me, I will not go!”
So she said, “I will surely go with you; nevertheless there will be no glory for you in the journey you are taking, for the Lord will sell Sisera into the hand of a woman.” Then Deborah arose and went with Barak to Kedesh.
You limit the glory of Israel and there is no glory.
And what more shall I say? For the time would fail me to tell of Gideon and Barak and Samson and Jephthah, also of David and Samuel and the prophets: who through faith subdued kingdoms, worked righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,
David came after Samuel
Gideon and Barak both had faith. It is not about time. When God put a name first is His priority. Is based on the quality and excellency of faith.
Barak was looking to the woman and not to the Lord. – If you go with me than i will go with you
For Gideon his eyes is on the Lord.
Samson and Jephthah had faith in God
Jephthah was rejected by his brothers and community.
Jephthah made a vow to the Lord. He bargained with the Lord. Jesus is your high priest. Believers don’t vow today.
And Jephthah made a vow to the Lord, and said, “If You will indeed deliver the people of Ammon into my hands, then it will be that whatever comes out of the doors of my house to meet me, when I return in peace from the people of Ammon, shall surely be the Lord’s, and I will offer it up as a burnt offering.”
1 Samuel 8:1-3
Israel Demands a King
Now it came to pass when Samuel was old that he made his sons judges over Israel. The name of his firstborn was Joel, and the name of his second, Abijah; they were judges in Beersheba. But his sons did not walk in his ways; they turned aside after dishonest gain, took bribes, and perverted justice.
There is a faith quality. David had faith that God put His approval on.
All 6 of them were ordinary people except David. God put prophets last. Ordinary people can walk in excellency of faith.
“This is what pertains to the Levites: From twenty-five years old and above one may enter to perform service in the work of the tabernacle of meeting; and at the age of fifty years they must cease performing this work, and shall work no more.
If you are under law, your strength is limited and subject to wear and tear.
Joshua grew old, Caleb did not.
Joshua death was recorded but Caleb was not.
Caleb – My strength is for war, give me this mountain
Hebron is a mountain
Someone who believe God and someone who said i must have people come with me
They shall run and not be weary and walk and not faith.
Caleb run at 80 plus.
If you are in the law, it is about your strength and you are limited
If you are in grace, it is above your ability and you are unlimited
Your sandals shall be iron and bronze;
As your days, so shall your strength be.
Faith will transcend time and space.
Functioning in faith in the Lord
He found a fresh jawbone of a donkey, reached out his hand and took it, and killed a thousand men with it. Then Samson said:
“With the jawbone of a donkey,
Heaps upon heaps,
With the jawbone of a donkey
I have slain a thousand men!”
And so it was, when he had finished speaking, that he threw the jawbone from his hand, and called that place Ramath Lehi.
Then he became very thirsty; so he cried out to the Lord and said, “You have given this great deliverance by the hand of Your servant; and now shall I die of thirst and fall into the hand of the uncircumcised?” So God split the hollow place that is in Lehi, and water came out, and he drank; and his spirit returned, and he revived. Therefore he called its name En (fountain) Hakkore (caller), which is in Lehi to this day.
The fountain of the one who called
Jesus quoted the bible based on one word.
Every word is inspired
I am the God of Abraham and Issac and God of Jacob
Every word is inspired.
In everything that man does it always fail if we forget Jesus is the number one in our lives!
When the Lord said to Abraham, Sarah was listening and heard she will have baby. She asked shall I have pleasure, my lord
Christianity is about the joy of the Lord
The joy of the Lord. Is His joy that is my strength. We are His joy
You are His joy.
Knowing what is He joyful over.
The joy of the Lord is my strength.
Eyes on the Lord. Independent of faith
Do I trust the Lord or have i been trusting in my doctor? My lawyer, banker? Is his advise the final?
Have you asked the Lord? Is there peace in your heart?
Seek the Lord first. He loves you. You are His joy. Knowing that will give you strength
