Your worry, your irritation melt away in God’s presence. His presence is here and all the enemies scattered. All dark thoughts will melt away in His presence.
One of the best way to bring delights into Father’s heart is to sing songs about Jesus.
Joseph said, “Go tell my father, all the things you have seen and heard about me”
The Father delights in His Son and loves His Son. No man brought pleasure to the heart of God the way Jesus did.
You are My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
Loves His Son, Father loves you

Rapture is nothing more than redemption of our bodies.
Our bodily redemption is our downpayment.
He is coming back for our bodies to be completely redeemed
We are in heaven fully glorified bodied
When the rapture comes, the dead in Christ shall raised first.
We who are alive and remain shall be caught up together.
Alive are the young ones.
Older advancing in years are the ones who remain
We are looking up and not looking down.
Look to the Lord’s coming.
Atomic seconds and we are raptured.
There are a lot of words in the word of God.

1 Chronicles 12:32
of the sons of Issachar who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do, their chiefs were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their command;
Redeeming Persons and Property Dedicated to God
Now the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: When a man consecrates by a vow certain persons to the LORD, according to your valuation, if your valuation is of a male from twenty years old up to sixty years old, then your valuation shall be fifty shekels of silver, according to the shekel of the sanctuary. If it is a female, then your valuation shall be thirty shekels; and if from five years old up to twenty years old, then your valuation for a male shall be twenty shekels, and for a female ten shekels; and if from a month old up to five years old, then your valuation for a male shall be five shekels of silver, and for a female your valuation shall be three shekels of silver; and if from sixty years old and above, if it is a male, then your valuation shall be fifteen shekels, and for a female ten shekels.
‘But if he is too poor to pay your valuation, then he shall present himself before the priest, and the priest shall set a value for him; according to the ability of him who vowed, the priest shall value him.
When you vow to God it implies human strength and energy
The Israelis said all that God commands us, we can do it.
God opened up the Red Sea for them. Not because they are good but because God is good.
God turned bitter water into sweet water.
Bitterness leads to sweetness. The cross leads to healing
Grace in action.
In Christ the law is fulfilled
10 commandments based on natural strength.
In those days they judge our natural strength by the ability to go to war.
This is based on war.
Our standing are all equal. In Christ we are equally accepted.
All in Christ so close to God.
From 60 years old and above, men was 15 shekels
The law is natural. It does not impart supernatural help.
The law demands, grace supplies
If you are too poor, you present yourself to the priest. You just need to tell the priest you are too poor.
The priest represents grace.
The 1st mention of priest was Melchizedek
“And the Lord appeared to him by the oaks of Mamre, as he sat at the door of his tent in the heat of the day.”
Genesis 18:1 ESV
“And Abraham went quickly into the tent to Sarah and said, “Quick! Three seahs of fine flour! Knead it, and make cakes.” And Abraham ran to the herd and took a calf, tender and good, and gave it to a young man, who prepared it quickly.”
Genesis 18:6-7 ESV
Run to the herd. He run when he was 99 years old
“When Abram was ninety-nine years old the Lord appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am God Almighty; walk before me, and be blameless,”
Genesis 17:1 ESV
Live your life seeing My smiles on you.
Conscious of My presence
Abraham and Sarah did not have special bodies
“The Lord said, “I will surely return to you about this time next year, and Sarah your wife shall have a son.” And Sarah was listening at the tent door behind him. Now Abraham and Sarah were old, advanced in years. The way of women had ceased to be with Sarah. So Sarah laughed to herself, saying, “After I am worn out, and my Lord is old, shall I have pleasure?” The Lord said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh and say, ‘Shall I indeed bear a child, now that I am old?’ Is anything too hard for the Lord? At the appointed time I will return to you, about this time next year, and Sarah shall have a son.” But Sarah denied it, saying, “I did not laugh,” for she was afraid. He said, “No, but you did laugh.””
Genesis 18:10-15 ESV
Their bodies in the natural are like ours
And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara’s womb: He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
He was not weak in faith. He considered not the natural fact
Abraham advanced in age but his body did not advance. This was after his faith
Who see realities more than God?
It was spiritual realm and unseen realm that brought forth the seen realm
Everything visible will pass off
It was unseen spirit realm that brought forth physical realm
“As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations. No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you a father of many nations.
Abraham means father of multitudes
He was called Abraham before he was father of multitudes
Call those things that are not as though they are.
God saw darkness and He did not say “so dark!” He called “Light Be”
Sarah’s name was Sara. Sarah means Princess
We are not denying the natural fact
He gives power to the weak,
And to those who have no might He increases strength.
Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
And the young men shall utterly fall,
But those who wait on the LORD
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.
If you are confident in your strength, there is an expiry date
If you are confident in your youth, your confidence is in shaky ground
Time with God is waiting upon the Lord
The word Renew is exchange strength
Give me your human strength and i will give you My divine strength
The energy and power flowing through you is not natural. It is measured by the richness of His strength
Bless the LORD, O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits:
Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases,
Who redeems your life from destruction,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
God wants His people to walk in faith.
You step into the natural you are subject to what is natural.
You have the revelation you are too poor for anything and fall back into the hands of our High Priest. Go to our High Priest fast!
60 years old is not decline. Abraham, Sarah were not declining.
He considered his body not now dead and his faith changed his body.
While waiting for our glorified bodies we can do something with our natural bodies by faith
If we snap back to the natural, we are snapping back to natural bodies
And now, behold, the LORD has kept me alive, as He said, these forty-five years, ever since the LORD spoke this word to Moses while Israel wandered in the wilderness; and now, here I am this day, eighty-five years old. As yet I am as strong this day as on the day that Moses sent me; just as my strength was then, so now is my strength for war, both for going out and for coming in. Now therefore, give me this mountain of which the LORD spoke in that day; for you heard in that day how the Anakim were there, and that the cities were great and fortified. It may be that the LORD will be with me, and I shall be able to drive them out as the LORD said.”
And Joshua blessed him, and gave Hebron to Caleb the son of Jephunneh as an inheritance. Hebron therefore became the inheritance of Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite to this day, because he wholly followed the LORD God of Israel.
He said he is strong to fight. He went in.
Caleb went in to fight at his advance age
Don’t forget ALL His benefits
My youth is renewed like the eagles.
Forget not ALL His benefits
We are very quick to say getting old
Consciousness. It is all in reports and facts. We are not denying the facts but we consider God’s Word above the facts.
God wants to give you healthy and young mind.
The way faith works is this
2 Corinthians 4:13
And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed and therefore I spoke,” we also believe and therefore speak,
According to what is written. I believe and therefore i speak.
Old people complain a lot.
A lot of people grow old because they complain.
We are supposed to live in the supernatural
There are so much good when we look out for it
The word thank you and grace is the same
If you love your child you will correct your child.
If you don’t, the prison will correct differently.
You correct with love
What is your greatest gift?
I believe and therefore I speak
It was hard and painful for Jesus but it is easy for us. The word is so near us.
The word is so near you, speak it out! It must be in your mouth than it drops into your heart.
As Jesus is young, strong and healthy, so am I in this world
The missing element is this
Believe in your heart is not enough, have you SPOKEN?
Put in your mouth and it will drop into your heart
But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Confession is make unto healing, protection
Spirit of faith
