The Lord helps your children when you are not with them. They are so battles your children going through in their teens or early adulthood. The Lord is with them. They are not fighting alone.
The body is not the real you. The real you is inside. Worship Him in spirit and truth.
The miracle the new birth happen. That is what being saved is all about.
God wants you for the rest of your lives be governed from inside out.
Today as you hear God’s Word for you, the rhema God for you.
Kairos year of right time right place.
Kairos being the greek word for a seasonable time. An opportunity, something desirable.
We find ourselves at the right time at the right place doing the right thing.
I returned and saw under the sun that—
The race is not to the swift,
Nor the battle to the strong,
Nor bread to the wise,
Nor riches to men of understanding,
Nor favor to men of skill;
But time and chance happen to them all.
We always think we are fast we win the race.
Battle here does not means warfare all the time.
It could be 2 companies competing each other.
It is not a matter of riches. Time and chance happen to them all.
There are people who are with plenty of money but poor inside
Poor of this world but rich in faith.
At the point of choosing is poor, but God supplies them and they are poor no more.
Only God can put you at the right place at the right time
Psalm of protection is Psalm 91
Abide all days under the shadow / shelter or the Most High
For man also does not know his time:
Like fish taken in a cruel net,
Like birds caught in a snare,
So the sons of men are snared in an evil time,
When it falls suddenly upon them.
It is not dependent on your smart or how wealthy you are.
Time and chance happen to them all.
Your Old Testament is all in Hebrew
Your New Testament is all in Greek
Originally Old and New Testament
Time – “eth” “kairos”
Favourable season and time

We want to be addicted to God’s Word
Let your soul delights in the fatness of the Word
Even the trees of the fields will clap their hands
You are a blessings everywhere you go
God wants to set your course early in the year in the right place
Happen to them all!
Sometimes kairos happens in negative way but it will be qualifying with the word evil
May you have plenty of good favourable season (kairos) this year!
Happen -> Qarah
When I washed my steps with butter,
and the rock (Jesus) poured me out rivers of oil;
When you are filled with holy spirit you are anointed
The rock will pour you out rivers of oil
Jesus being a Hebrew speaking to Hebrew disciples, He would have said this.
Fear not, John, I am Aleph and I am Tav
Israel day is evening to evening
Starts the day from evening
First verse of the bible in hebrew is exactly 7 words
Aleph Tav is not translated in the verse. Aleph Tav is God’s signature. He is the first and the last!
Make sure God has the final word in your life
In the beginning it was Jesus who created the heaven and the earth
Jesus is in the centre. He is the Aleph Tav
God hides meaning in the Hebrew calendar
5783 is this year.
8 is pei
Abraham means father of multitude
Yod is nos 10
Sarah means princess
If you want butter, this is the church to come to this year!
Let your steps be covered with butter. Delight our soul with butter and fatness
Aleph – Alpha
An ox in the house
This is where you get Abba
Now the next day, when they had come out from Bethany, He was hungry. And seeing from afar a fig tree having leaves, He went to see if perhaps He would find something on it. When He came to it, He found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season (kairos) for figs. In response Jesus said to it, “Let no one eat fruit from you ever again.”
And His disciples heard it.
Harvest time is also Kairos
Grace cannot flow when there is pride
You depend on Him alone. Grace will find you.
Pharisees, self righteous
Unless you curse the fig leave of self righteous in your life; you cannot grow
Jesus came looking for the early fig (green fig)
Song of Songs 2:10-13
My beloved spoke, and said to me:
“Rise up, my love, my fair one,
And come away.
For lo, the winter is past,
The rain is over and gone.
The flowers appear on the earth;
The time of singing has come,
And the voice of the turtledove
Is heard in our land.
The fig tree puts forth her green figs,
And the vines with the tender grapes
Give a good smell.
Rise up, my love, my fair one,
And come away!
God is telling us to rise up
Spend time in the Lord. When you spend time in the Lord, He brings you away out of darkness!
He rejoice over us!
The way the husband loves the bride on the wedding day
This is passionate and celebration love
Do you realised how many times the song of songs the Lord calls us?
His love for us is individual. There is no spot in us
He covers us with His righteousness and there is no spot in us
There are many kings but only one king of kings
One look from your eyes and my heart is taken.
Whenever you look to Jesus, His heart is taken
When God thinks about the church, He thinks about us as the body of Christ
When Saul was persecuting on church on earth, Jesus asked why he persecute Him
His body is not divided
The time (eth, kairos) of singing has come
The dove – Holy Spirit
The darkness is gone. There is voice of singing.
The voice of the dove is heard in our land
Green figs – pag
Rise up! The time of singing has come!
There is nothing like corporate anointing
Come together in one place
Observe the Lord’s supper in one place
House of the early fig
Your eyes with blossoming of the flowers
Go higher in the spirit this year with Him
We all need to rise up.
Genesis 24 talks about the church and is longest chapter
His church is His greatest delight
First mention of love is Genesis 22
Take now your son, your only son, the son you love (this is talking about Jesus)
Jesus carried the cross all the way
Issac carried the wood in Mount Moriah
Before Abraham was, I am
On earth He came as a baby
The Father loves the Son
First mention of love is Father and Son’s love
Second mention of love is the picture of holy spirit
A bride without spot or wrinkle
The very second mention of love is the son’s love for his bride
Then Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah’s tent; and he took Rebekah and she became his wife, and he loved her. So Isaac was comforted after his mother’s death.
He gave Himself for the church
When you realise you are a prince you walk like a prince
When you realise you are a son of God you walk like son of God
Then the servant took ten of his master’s camels and departed, for all his master’s goods were in his hand. And he arose and went to Mesopotamia, to the city of Nahor. And he made his camels kneel down outside the city by a well of water at evening time, the time when women go out to draw water. Then he said, “O LORD God of my master Abraham, please give me success this day, and show kindness to my master Abraham.
In God’s mind, 10 represents all
You give the 10 percent you are giving Him all. This is God’s calculation
Only one came out. Rebekah came out. She was very beautiful.
Abraham’s servant is the picture of holy spirit here
Success (‘qarah’) – time and chance happen!
Give me right happening. Favourable happening! This is how God defines success.
Before he finished praying, Rebekah appeared.
Qarah happen before you pray
Before you called, He answered.
While you are talking, He answered
We still pray. Abraham’s servant prayed.
Show kindness. Hesed. Hesed is hebrew for grace
Grace and right happening always happen together
Is His grace that brings right happening together.
And it happened, before he had finished speaking, that behold, Rebekah, who was born to Bethuel, son of Milcah, the wife of Nahor, Abraham’s brother, came out with her pitcher on her shoulder.
Abraham’s servant is a picture of holy spirit
Holy spirit talks about the son
The Father’s love for the son
Everything will revolve around Jesus as God meant to be
Is a time of peg, the green fig
He asked for the girl with the extra mile
1 camel minimum 10 gallon
Rebekah run to fetch water for the camels.
Today this year there is manifestation of the gifts of holy spirit
3 groups of the gifts –
These 3 gifts cause a sick person to be healed instantly
Gifts of healing
Gifts of working of miracles
All these gifts happen as the spirit will, not as you and I will.
Gift of faith together with gift of healing
Instant healing is the holy spirit, not as we will.
The gift of working of miracles is not in the area of healing
Is a power gift to do something
Vocal gifts – gift of prophesy
We will see a lot of gift of prophesy
The revelation gift to know something
An insight into the future
A word of knowledge is an insight about present situation
Gift of discerning of spirit is discerning angels as well
The moment he located Rebekah is the appointed ones. Rebekah is the church
And the man, wondering at her, remained silent so as to know whether the LORD had made his journey prosperous or not.
So it was, when the camels had finished drinking, that the man took a golden nose ring weighing half a shekel, and two bracelets for her wrists weighing ten shekels of gold, and said, “Whose daughter are you? Tell me, please, is there room in your father’s house for us to lodge?”
So she said to him, “I am the daughter of Bethuel, Milcah’s son, whom she bore to Nahor.”
There is no success outside the church
Is the win souls to add to the church of Jesus Christ
Whatever he does shall prosper
Success is not an end. It is learning to enjoy where you are. Stop postponing your enjoyment
Success is enjoying every steps of the journey
Nose rings – nose is the place of discernment. (This is given, not progress)
If you cannot discern good and bad, you need help
Half a shekel – a picture of atonement
Don’t forget you are bought with the precious blood of Jesus
Once we were lost in the marketplace. He bought us out
The 9 fruits of holy spirit is progress
Power gifts – the gift’s of healing and faith
These come as instant, not development
Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good,
and let your soul delight itself in fatness.
Incline your ear, and come unto me:
hear, and your soul shall live;
and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.
Fatness! Let your soul delight in the fatness
Mary and Martha Worship and Serve
Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus’ feet and heard His word. But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me.”
And Jesus answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.”
Martha is distracted with much serving
She approached Him and asked “ do you not care..”
Mary set at Jesus’ feet and kept on hearing and hearing
Mary wanted butter
Martha approached Jesus
“But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went up to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.””
Luke 10:40 ESV
Rise up! Go higher! When you spend time with the Lord, you rise up
Distracted – pulled all different direction
Mary chose the good part
If you want to worry about all the part, worry about spending time in the Word
Trouble – riot in the mind
Needed – necessity
She chose out of the many she has. She chose the good part. Listening to the Word, which will not be taken away from her.
Right time right place.
She chose the good part so she can chose the good work!
She is the only one that Jesus carried her perfume
