Sermon note (4th svc)
– Pastor Prince
Mary carried eternity in her arms. But at that point of time He was confined within time.
Christmas, everyone stop a while to think about love. The love of God.
Most likely Jesus was born in feast of tabernacle.
But He was surely conceived around 25th Dec. It is not that important exactly what day. It is about our Jesus Christ.
Emmanuel, God with us!
My son, give attention to my words;
Incline your ear to my sayings.
Do not let them depart from your eyes;
Keep them in the midst of your heart;
For they are life to those who find them,
And health to all their flesh.
Keep your heart with all diligence,
For out of it spring the issues of life.
God’s word are Life to those who find them and health to all their flesh.
Health to your lungs, to your heart, to your kidneys, to your colon, all means all!
Sometimes you take medicine you have side effect. God’s Word is health to ALL.
When Jesus said I am with you always, even to the end of world. Just before He ascended He said that. All days!
Great things happen when you see that the Lord is with you!
Conscious the Lord is with us always and we will not be afraid.
Who are you conscious of? You are conscious of your God or are you afraid of your wife?
Before the Lord whom I stand. You will be afraid of nothing.
Lets live our lives as if we know anything we are faced with, The Lord is with us!
Our assurance is The Lord is with us! We can boldly say we are not afraid, our Lord will never leave us nor forsake us!
See the Lord as your Friend! See Him smiling with us.
We are not practising it to make it real. He is real! Your unbelief will not stop the sun from shining.
Your belief is in line with God’s word.
Do not let the Word depart from your eyes
Keep them in the midst of your heart!
Keep your heart with all diligence- God’s word minister life and health
A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things in his life.
Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.
Whatever you speak shows the fullness of your heart.
Everything you see in your life now, proceed from your heart.
If you are seeing shortage, lack of provision, or you don’t see the life you envision, long before these things happen, it proceed from your heart.
Don’t like what you see, change your heart
With all that you can keep, keep your heart
Your heart is not the spirit.
It is who you really are. We are a spirit and we have a soul and we live in a house called the body.
Heart is better described as how it function
Cuff is open hand in Hebrew
Heart is Lev
From Lev you get love
God has put His name on your heart.
Every door, the doorpost of your hotel room, there is one letter Shin (that is your heart)
Your heart is not straight, is slightly tilted like shin ש
Death is singular. Life is plural.
I come that you may have life and have it more abundantly
Your heart is the key! The key to experience life and health.
What is the heart?
See how it function
1st mention of heart in old and in new testament.
The law of first mention.
Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
God links the heart with imagination of men.
We think our imagination is of the mind. But God said our imagination is from the heart.
The way we study in Singapore is based on the western style of culture. Logic, analytical.
In middle east, they learn with pictures.
God is a God that gives us faith picture of your life!
First mention tell us the heart is tied up with imagination.
As long as the heart is in imagination. What is in imagination is as good as done.
We fear of missing out and it is a very stressful life.
Something is wrong when you are addicted to “likes” in social media
Imagination is as good as working out of it.
But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
God wants to clean up our imagination.
This is not a teaching of new age. They hijacked bible teaching.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he
Lets not feel afraid to repossess what is ours!
Blessed are the pure in heart,
For they shall see God.
Jesus linked heart with seeing.
You don’t like what you see, change your heart, change your imagination!
“Therefore prepare yourself and arise,
And speak to them all that I command you.
Do not be dismayed before their faces,
Lest I dismay you before them.
For behold, I have made you this day
A fortified city and an iron pillar,
And bronze walls against the whole land—
Against the kings of Judah,
Against its princes,
Against its priests,
And against the people of the land.
They will fight against you,
But they shall not prevail against you.
For I am with you,” says the Lord, “to deliver you.”
When I put you in front of people, don’t be afraid of people.
1. See yourself as fortified city.
2. See yourself as iron pillar
3. See yourself as bronze wall
Jesus wants you to change your life inside out. The bible is God’s picture book to change your heart.
Psalm 1 about meditation
But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.
You will never grow old. Your leaf shall never wither! See yourself like the tree planted by the river of water. Your leaf are evergreen! Whatever you do prosper!
See yourself prosper!
God is changing your heart inside out!
Whatever you do, even your mistake, will turn out for good.
If you talk as if you know better than God, change your picture inside out.
You are planted on purpose. You are a fruitful brother and sister! This is how we see each other.
See the person through the eyes of the Lord!
Every time there is a notification you must check. Lets use hp as a tool, not as a slave.
There is a condition called medical student disease. The students when they are studying that disease, they started to feel the symptoms of that disease
Why can the mind affect the body?
Before the devil can do anything in your body, he give you picture of that
The new age has hijacked this truth. Visualization alone does not work.
When it happen on the outside, it always take a spirit. Holy spirit and us. That we ask for and envision.
The new age has to get in touch with evil spirit. When an envision happen, the evil spirit is involved. If evil spirit is involved he will not give anything that is free.
The most demonised man, when Jesus casted all the demons out of that man, Jesus told him to go home. He never claims someone whom He healed. He never put a price on healing.
God so loved that He gave!
We give, our giving, we give to the Lord as a token of our love and we are not giving to purchase.
Pastor’s cousin shared this story. He was playing with 4 numbers wanting to strike lottery. One night he had a dream. He saw a creature gave him 4 numbers. He bought the numbers and he striked lottery. Within a short time, his father died suddenly.
The creature said something to his cousin which he agreed with. He agreed and it cost his father’s life. His cousin was afraid and now he is saved in Christ.
God heals u ! He does not give you disease in the first place.
Devil never give you anything for free. If you start in his realm, don’t expect him to come out. He has to be casted out in the name of Jesus!
Stars has music. Music for man’s pleasure.
Music is one of the greatest gift of God. Anointed music touch people and heals.
God uses music.
Those who are not believers, many of the composers died young. They touched the spirit realm and they are not protected.
Why are they so addicted? Many of them died young.
Don’t touch new age book.
What God has for us!
What do you see yourself?
Do you see it? What do you see on the inside?
What do you see on the inside? What has the devil painted? You have evil images.
A lot of things before it happened you see in the movies.
We are looking at pictures that are producing opposite effects. What we are watching and seeing is more important than the words we are reading.
We need to have image. It is not only by words. We need to put pictures in our hearts.
What kind of images we have in our inside?
that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,
The eyes of your heart (NASB Version)
The Lord appeared to Gideon. He was stressful. God called him a brave man even when he was hiding.

Start kissing again. Imagine those lips of wine
See your wife as someone who intoxicate you.
The bible said you have left your first love, do the first work.
Start kissing even if you don’t feel it.
Kiss your own husband and your own wife. Imagine them as fruitful vine.
All these are pictures! Olive plants! They are anointed. Their eyes are anointed to see the goodness of the Lord.
Believe the best of your children, not the worse of them.
Your body makes noise, because no oil.
Oil makes you look young.
The devil does not like oily thing. He likes dry places. The devil is called the lord of the flies
Anoint the sheep with oil.
Eyes to see and ears to hear.
Start putting images into your heart.
When you travel, take a plane to fly somewhere, don’t watch those plane crush.
With all your keeping, guard your heart!
The army surrounded Elisha. The servant saw the army and was afraid. Elisha said there are more with us than with them. (2 Kings 6:16)
Elisha prayed for his servant’s eyes to be opened and he saw the army of the Lord more
Open your eyes to see what is already there.
God made man complete and He left the eyes of heart for man to choose.
God wanted us to open the eyes of our heart to the tree of life!
We see Jesus!
Guard our heart!
The more we read the symptom, the more it will manifest.
Guard your heart.
Pray the Lord will cleanse your heart and cleanse your memory bank!
When Jesus walked on earth, this is what Jesus did.
Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner. For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself does; and He will show Him greater works than these, that you may marvel.
Jesus lived by the eyes of His heart
Are you nervous to stand in front of people?
See yourself as iron pillar.
Are you afraid to travel?
See angels going with you.
Abraham had a challenge. Blessed but barren.
He looked at others around him, babies come out like fishes. They were producing when they did not know God.
Something happened to Abraham.
Lot’s name is veil
And the Lord said to Abram, after Lot had separated from him: “Lift your eyes now and look from the place where you are—northward, southward, eastward, and westward; for all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever. And I will make your descendants as the dust of the earth; so that if a man could number the dust of the earth, then your descendants also could be numbered.
For all the lands you see, i give to you.
Do you see it?
The bible is all about pictures
Is a picture book. God help Abraham’s faith.
Every time Abraham looked down, the picture -> his descendants as the dust of the earth
God is changing his image from the inside.
Jesus said -> whoever shall say to the mountain (obstacles) speak to the mountain, b thou removed and be thrown in the sea, and shall not doubt in his heart, he shall have whatever he said.
Believe and don’t doubt in your heart you will have whatever you said.
Long before God deals with our mouth, He deals with our heart.
The doctors are there to tell you what is wrong with you. Don’t expect to get faith from the doctors. Thank God for them. We find faith from the Word of God.
God look at us and see health in all our flesh.
As He is, so am I! This is the image i put in my heart.
God knew there was a lot of dust in Israel.
Enemies had 4 armies of thousands
Abraham only had 380 men
Very few against so many, yet God gave Abraham the victory.
God’s Covenant with Abram
After these things the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.”
But Abram said, “Lord God, what will You give me, seeing I go childless, and the heir of my house is Eliezer of Damascus?”
Whenever you pray, be alert in the pictures that come out!
Grab the pictures!
We are suffering from the lack of true leadership. We have lost the capacity to dream to envision.
God is in the still small voice. The still small pictures.
Revelation is of the heart not the head.
A book on The power of positive thinking.
Prayerise – pray to God
Visualize – see the picture
Actualize – come to pass
I am your shield.
All the darts will just fall off.
Jesus is your shield and your exceeding great reward (salary)
How do you see yourself?
What are you seeing?
God’s norm is to change your heart inside out.
Without faith, it is impossible to please God.
Then He brought him outside and said, “Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them.” And He said to him, “So shall your descendants be.”
And he believed in the Lord, and He accounted it to him for righteousness.
Young man see vision
Old man dreams dream
Language of God is pictures!
Count the stars if you are able to number them. Every stars became a baby face for Abraham.
God filled his heart with faith picture first.
Change the way you speak.
Abraham -> father of many.
We try to confess first without changing our heart. God change our heart first and we confess
Secure people no time to hate but build people up
Lets see righteousness rise up in this nation
You are a blessing !
See yourself resurrected imagination
