Theme Of The Year 2020

The christian circle calls this year the year of bible. We thank God that it involves the Word of God

The numbers of young people cutting lives have increased. 

God does not take away, God adds 

We are still in the year of latter rain, blessings. It is not for the world. As far as the world is concerned, it is getting darker and darker but the glory of the Lord will raise on you and will be seen on you

If you switch off all the light in the auditorium, one flicker of light, everyone will see it. 

When the whole world is like people painting peace, it was a competition, the one who won, is a stormy wave and near the rock, there is a mother bird of wing over the young ones. 

Peace is not the absent of challenges and battles, the Lord will be with us. 

We will walk through the shadow of valley and we will not fear evil. Shadow does not kill. The Lord is our Shepherd. We are facing this year with our Shepherd. 

I am the God that teaches you to profit and leads you by the way you should go. 

There was gold in the temple within the house but outside you see stones. 

The nature of the sun is to generate heat. The mud cannot remain the same, it becomes harden. 

God loves man and never meant for man to die or even has sickness or grow old. The last enemy that is going to put under Jesus’ feet will be physical death

Jesus’ body is a real body that transcend this time and space. He could appear and disappear. We touch and handle Him. His flesh is incorruptible 

We will live in great sense of well-being. Shalom! Forever! 

The life He has for us, the whole universe is our playground! 

The earth is exactly where it is supposed to be. 

When God speaks light be, there was a bang. No order comes out of chaos

The fool has said in his heart there is no God. 

Man usually worship themselves. Life about themselves is always painful. 

We are stepping from tabernacle (a picture of grace) to temple (a picture of glory)

The people outside they see the stones. They don’t see the glory inside. 

The gold is within us. The Lord leads us from within and not without. 

God gave a sign to Elijah. The holy spirit could not dwell in them then. 

Know you not that you are a temple of God. 

You are a walking talking temple of God 

This prompting from within, we need to obey.

When God gives us a theme, He wants the theme to be evangelical 

This year we are going to see the temple of God been built. 

The theme of the year started end of last year. We are like living stones. 

All the stones were cut on location. We were all in darkness in one time. We lived lives as if there is no God and as if we don’t die. We lived lives without purpose and yet we think we are fulfilling all our desires. 

If no one went in to draw stones, they will remain. You can throw any help inside, none will come out. 

We were cut and brought out of darkness to proclaim His praise. 

1 Peter 2:4-5

The Chosen Stone and His Chosen People

(Ps. 118:22; Is. 28:16)

Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, 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.

We are built stones by stones. 

No sound of iron works. You have a destiny no one can fulfil. 

God caused you to be birth. You have a purpose and destiny. You are unique. You are precious. 

God needs everyone. 

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;

A royal priesthood, not just priest

A priest is someone who brings praises to God. 

To proclaim peace. We can come in and bring blessing to situations. 

True holiness look like royalty

There is something divine. This is true holiness. You cannot stop greatness in a man

The self-righteous Pharisees hated Jesus 

They wanted people to go through them to go to God

Jesus could condemn but He would not. Pharisees would but they could not. 

He is more precious, more beautiful than 10,000

The Lord Jesus is our Shepherd. He will care for us. 

You get soft and sentimental 

Softness and sentimentalism is not good. When Jesus is kind, He is truly kind. 

When Jesus is humble, He washes disciples’ feet. 

There is beauty there. When He is humble He is not servile. 

He is altogether lovely. God’s desire is for us to be transformed like Him 

Man looks on the outward appearance, be wise. Use that for your wisdom. 

Proclaim the excellencies of Him! They look at your lives and want to be like you. 

There are poor people who are poor inside. They are always striving to proof themselves. 

The greatest prosperity is to know Him and to know Him more and more. 

Wood speaks of humanity. Cedar wood would not decay. 

After we are overlaid, we are overlaid with gold. 

Our actions and thoughts are not perfect, when Jesus comes again, we are not subject to errors. God sees us overlaid with His righteousness. God sees us in Christ. God sees us overlaid in gold. 

The world outside only see the stone. 

See the gold. God sees the gold. 

1 Chronicles 28:11-12

Then David gave his son Solomon the plans for the vestibule, its houses, its treasuries, its upper chambers, its inner chambers, and the place of the mercy seat; and the plans for all that he had by the Spirit, of the courts of the house of the Lord, of all the chambers all around, of the treasuries of the house of God, and of the treasuries for the dedicated things;

Step into His treasuries and possess them! 

God wants to bring you to a bigger place! 

Solomon built according to the plan given by God to David. Solomon adopted the plan. 

People are getting more and more stress. God wants to bring us to deeper rest. 

If you are afraid of the future, write down what God has for you first. 

This is not automatic writing. 

God does not take. God gives. God uses your agreement. He wants us to be in corporation with God. 

God uses people. Lay hands on the sick and He will use us to heal them. 

God wants to use us as co-labourer

God speaks through people

Start planning for this year. Not resolution, it is looking to man. 

Pray to God for wisdom

Evil spirit loves you to be passive so he can take over. 

You don’t move, God will not move. 

You choose. He always respect your choice. 

Psalms 29:9

The voice of the Lord makes the deer give birth,

And strips the forests bare;

And in His temple everyone says, “Glory!”

Windows broad within and narrow without

Is easier for the people to shoot arrows and not been shot at

In the temple, it is to spread the light from different direction

The entrance of His light gives life 

The Lord will lead us !

You will be confused when you read articles after articles. Confusion!

Live your own life! You are royalty. Don’t live in drama. 

Make sure you live your own life. 

The words of rumours (comments of things happening) will poison you from inside. 

Study the word of God

Blessed is the man who walk not in the counsel of the ungodly. 

Guard your anointing

Guard your peace

You are not a garbage 

We need the word of God. For everyone of us the windows within our lives will become so broad that it will shines and radiance come from the Lord 

Proclaim the excellencies of Him. We are the light of the world. 

Shine. Let our families have light

1 Kings 6:4-8 (KJV)

And for the house he made windows of narrow lights.

And against the wall of the house he built chambers round about, against the walls of the house round about, both of the temple and of the oracle: and he made chambers round about: The nethermost chamber was five cubits broad, and the middle was six cubits broad, and the third was seven cubits broad: for without in the wall of the house he made narrowed rests round about, that the beams should not be fastened in the walls of the house. And the house, when it was in building, was built of stone made ready before it was brought thither: so that there was neither hammer nor axe nor any tool of iron heard in the house, while it was in building. The door for the middle chamber was in the right side of the house: and they went up with winding stairs into the middle chamber, and out of the middle into the third.

As you go up higher, you go to broader place

God wants to bring us to broader and higher place

The secret to stepping into these places

The temple always faces the east. 

In my Father’s house are many mansions 

We don’t have to bring any lamb. The One Lamb became our sacrifice. He died in our place. 

The Lamb’s righteousness transferred to us. 

How much good, blessings does Jesus deserve from all that heaven has? This is what we have now. 

When you ℓσνє someone you always sacrifice. You sacrifice 

ℓσνє finds its joy in seeing his loved ones blessed. 

Life is more than food. 

How do you go from 5 cubits broad to 6 cubits broad and 7 cubits broad?

1st floor is like babies

2nd floor is young men

3rd floor is fathers

Grow. 

Some of us possess more because we have more light. 

It is because we receive more light. To see more is to ascend 

First floor is the grain the wine and the oil

Second floor is the place of rest. The priest, the singers are there. Deeper rest. God wants us to go higher to a place of deeper rest. For our health. A deeper rest. Listen to God’s people. God uses people. You will hear the word that speaks to you. 

Third floor is overlaid with gold. All these are visual aids for your lives

2 Chronicles 3:9

And the weight of the nails was fifty shekels of gold. And he overlaid the upper chambers with gold.

Nehemiah 10:38-39

And the priest the son of Aaron shall be with the Levites, when the Levites take tithes: and the Levites shall bring up the tithe of the tithes unto the house of our God, to the chambers, into the treasure house. For the children of Israel and the children of Levi shall bring the offering of the corn, of the new wine, and the oil, unto the chambers, where are the vessels of the sanctuary, and the priests that minister, and the porters, and the singers: and we will not forsake the house of our God.

Sundays, the people come together to break breads. 

Feeding on royal treasures. 

Treasures of knowing Him

Length of days right hand

Riches and honour left hand

Wisdom are ways of 

Long life

Riches

Get the wisdom of God

Solomon as a young man ask God for wisdom

When you embrace wisdom like a woman, you get her hands supporting you. 

She will back you up. 

Our eyes are on Jesus, the wisdom of God

Why do people use spiral staircase?

Is to gain the maximum amount of height in the smallest possible space in the shortest time

When you have a spiral staircase the one who goes around save time

God wants us spiritually speaking, He wants to control time for us. The Lord can suspend time, reverse time. The universe is based on tri-unity

Nothing escape time except the Lord. He created time. 

Time – future present past

Space  – length depth height

Time is so slow for those who wait

Time is eternal for those who ℓσνє

God can restore the years. It can refer to duration of time

Everything the exists reflect the Godhead – trinity

His word is a lamp unto our feet. 

First step, one step at a time. 

Obey one step. Your miracle is waiting for you. All He wants for u is to take one step. 

Take no thoughts or worry about tomorrow.

If you are suffering mental depression, just live one day at a time. 

The secret to winding stairs. 

Before you know it you are on a higher level. 

One step will lead you to your next

One step at a time

Matthew 6:34 MSG

“Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.

The manna comes daily

A lady fell into depression. She slept up to 20 hours a day. She lost up to 20 pounds. She let Pastor sermon play even when she was sleeping. His daily bread is her daily healing. While she was waiting for her medicine, the Lord shows her the daily bread is her daily healing. God told her He supplies her healing in holy communion. She began to take holy communion everyday. She is now depression free! God has restored hope in her life. 

(Page 97 – Holy Communion book)

There is no grace today to handle it now. 

There is manna everyday. 

Big changes happen with small steps

It is often the small steps that bring everlasting change. 

Giant leaps often start with small steps

Small steps in faith and hope 

Do that first thing God tells u to

He don’t want you to worry about tomorrow. 

God can accelerate time for you 

John 2:1-2

Water Turned to Wine

On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Now both Jesus and His disciples were invited to the wedding.

John 2:5

His mother said to the servants, “Whatever He says to you, do it.”

Start walking again

People who walk help them brain 

Walking outside our minds are at ease

A lot of people get ideas when walk. 

If you prefer running, go ahead 

Get up! Take up your bed and walk 

Miracle of luxury – water turn to wine 

John 2:11

This beginning of signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory; and His disciples believed in Him.

To plant a seed in the ground is the first step

3-4 year when grapes come, the wine is not good quality

The longer you keep it, 20 years 30 years, the value goes up

God can even reverse the years the locust has eaten. 

We are going to follow God’s way

John 2:1

Water Turned to Wine

On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there.

We are living after 2 days. We are living in the 3rd day

John 4:43

Welcome at Galilee

Now after the two days He departed from there and went to Galilee.

John 4:46-47

A Nobleman’s Son Healed

So Jesus came again to Cana of Galilee where He had made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman whose son was sick at Capernaum. When he heard that Jesus had come out of Judea into Galilee, he went to Him and implored Him to come down and heal his son, for he was at the point of death.

John 4:50-54

Jesus said to him, “Go your way; your son lives.” So the man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him, and he went his way. And as he was now going down, his servants met him and told him, saying, “Your son lives!”

Then he inquired of them the hour when he got better. And they said to him, “Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him.” So the father knew that it was at the same hour in which Jesus said to him, “Your son lives.” And he himself believed, and his whole household.

This again is the second sign Jesus did when He had come out of Judea into Galilee.

1st sign – God compressed time (water turn to wine) show He is the Lord of time

2nd sign –  show He is the Lord of space

God can manipulate space for u this year! 

He can expand space 

Don’t live in regret. Live now

God restore the years. He can manipulate time in your favour. 

Space you are in it. God is outside it. He can manipulate space 

You will go higher in the spirit

The Theme Of The Year is

The Year of Time & Space! 

One step at a time 

God does it one step at a time

The grace will be there only when we are there. 

5 cubits 6 cubits 7 cubits

Believe He says and the miracle will happen.
