Sermon note (3rd svc)
- Pastor Prince
God’s heart for you is eternal. God’s calling for you is eternal beyond this life. God has the whole universe for us. He has prepared a beautiful place for us to live forever and ever.
We will not need to float around. We will live in bodies. We are able to shake hands and relate to one another.
Don’t ask the fish about the water. The fish is so used to the water.
We enjoy the pleasure of this life and cannot imagine something that is better. We are designed with glorious bodies.
When Jesus return we will receive the new bodies. He will set everything right. He will rule! People are liberated, the land has been purchased by the new owners now. When He comes again He will rule.
Growing old is a curse. While we are waiting for Jesus to return, believe Him for renewal of youth.
When Christ return, the new bodies will never feel tired, and never die! Life is more than living day to day. It is more that! Life is eternal. Eternal life that Jesus gives us, we do not want to miss.
God called the Jewish and could release into their lives something He gave Solomon.
1 Kings 4:29-34
God gave Solomon wisdom—the deepest of understanding and the largest of hearts. There was nothing beyond him, nothing he couldn’t handle. Solomon’s wisdom outclassed the vaunted wisdom of wise men of the East, outshone the famous wisdom of Egypt. He was wiser than anyone—wiser than Ethan the Ezrahite, wiser than Heman, wiser than Calcol and Darda the sons of Mahol. He became famous among all the surrounding nations. He created three thousand proverbs; his songs added up to 1,005. He knew all about plants, from the huge cedar that grows in Lebanon to the tiny hyssop that grows in the cracks of a wall. He understood everything about animals and birds, reptiles and fish. Sent by kings from all over the earth who had heard of his reputation, people came from far and near to listen to the wisdom of Solomon.
God gave Solomon wisdom. If God can give to him He can give to us.
We study a lot and educate ourselves, this accumulate knowledge. God can give us wisdom beyond our age.
The spirit of man is the candle (lamp) of the Lord. God lights up the candle.
It goes beyond our analytical mind.
Understanding and knowledge comes later.
God puts wisdom in the inward parts. Our inward parts is quicker than our brains.
It is preaching things we can see something but hard to explain.
Explanation that what we already know inside of us.
Ministry must confirm what we have in our hearts.
For the Lord gives wisdom;
From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;
2 Timothy 3:13-17
But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
All scriptures in the Bible is God-breathed. God breathed into man and man become the living soul.
If this is God-breathed our very existence and health begin in the Word
Spending time in the Word there is a breath that first give u life.
For they are life to those who find them,
And health to all their flesh.
Health to ALL our flesh.
God’s word is the only medicine that is health to all our flesh.
In the world, Paul prophesied of people been deceived.
Holiness is not looking down on other people.
Jesus’ holiness never compromise.
A Friend of sinners. His holiness was not about not coming near Him. He casted out demons and ministered healing. Always repairing, encouraging and living. Holiness is uncommonness.
When God said make us holy, it means set apart.
U set apart because u value them.
Set apart is been princely and sons of God. God called us for heavenly calls.
The Word of God sanctify us. His Word is truth.
Sanctify means set apart for God’s purposes.
When most people are depressed we have the peace of God that is beyond understanding
We live in a world of certainty knowing who God loves us.
Everything blown up is in confusion and never in proper order.
Order came out of the word Light Be.
Everything is exactly where it is supposed to be.
We live in a world where there are a lot of theories. We have something more than brain. We are called to live life more than just physical needs satisfied.
We are spirit being.
Able (sophizó – dynamic you into wisdom) to make you wise
sophizó is the wisdom that God gives.
There is a wisdom God gives only to His children. Able to make us wise.
Salvation impacted to them. Healing they need they received. Whatever the need was, salvation is there to provide.
Salvation – whether you need healing, you receive.
Been holy is been princely, and yet is among the common.
Don’t be common. God has called you to be uncommon.
Where people hate, you love.
People can see the radiance and can see that the Lord is in you
Lack of courage causes us not to be uncommon.
The Crafty Harlot
For at the window of my house
I looked through my lattice,
And saw among the simple,
I perceived among the youths,
A young man devoid of understanding,
Passing along the street near her corner;
And he took the path to her house
In the twilight, in the evening,
In the black and dark night.
And there a woman met him,
With the attire of a harlot, and a crafty heart.
For she has cast down many wounded,
And all who were slain by her were strong men.
Her house is the way to hell,
Descending to the chambers of death.
All kinds of death.
There is something more powerful than the nuclear weapon. It is the truth.
Jesus is the Way the Truth and the Life.
Sometimes u can be misunderstood but truth will always outlast the lie.
The Word of God set us apart. God’s Word has the power to separate you unto this world. We are designed for beauty, order.
Where the word of the King is kingly power. Holiness is uncommonness. Dare to be a Daniel.
When you are sick, the best thing to do is read God’s Word. It has impartation of wisdom.
God’s Word is not for us to understand everything.
We don’t understand everything but there is healing and cleansing effect.
Let go and relax.
There is a relaxing effect to read God’s Word. There is a beauty to all that is turned out. We find courage and hope.
By long forbearance a ruler is persuaded,
And a gentle tongue breaks a bone.
Flesh activate flesh. This is how husband and wife fights. Bear and forebear
King here is a picture of Jesus Christ. Reveal your heart to Him.
Tell the Lord. Pour out to the Lord.
Open up to the Lord.
Things we cannot even reveal to our best friends. Pour out to Him. It comes back with peace. The answer will come. The Lord opens His heart to us and give us the secret of His heart.
Is a soft tongue that break the bones.
Soft tongue is so powerful that it breaks the bones!
Our Lord Jesus is the perfect example.
King Solomon had wisdom but towards later of his life, he started to worship idols.
Devil wisdom is corrupted, not departed.
Wisdom is not a it, wisdom is tied with the Lord.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.
1 Kings 12:6-14
Then King Rehoboam consulted the elders who stood before his father Solomon while he still lived, and he said, “How do you advise me to answer these people?”
And they spoke to him, saying, “If you will be a servant to these people today, and serve them, and answer them, and speak good words to them, then they will be your servants forever.”
But he rejected the advice which the elders had given him, and consulted the young men who had grown up with him, who stood before him. And he said to them, “What advice do you give? How should we answer this people who have spoken to me, saying, ‘Lighten the yoke which your father put on us’?”
Then the young men who had grown up with him spoke to him, saying, “Thus you should speak to this people who have spoken to you, saying, ‘Your father made our yoke heavy, but you make it lighter on us’—thus you shall say to them: ‘My little finger shall be thicker than my father’s waist! And now, whereas my father put a heavy yoke on you, I will add to your yoke; my father chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scourges!’ ”
So Jeroboam and all the people came to Rehoboam the third day, as the king had directed, saying, “Come back to me the third day.” Then the king answered the people roughly, and rejected the advice which the elders had given him; and he spoke to them according to the advice of the young men, saying, “My father made your yoke heavy, but I will add to your yoke; my father chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scourges!”
Serve them. Serve leadership.
Our Lord Jesus is a King and a Servant. Be a Servant King
Words matter. How we speak to people matters.
Only our Lord Jesus never need to recall His words.
“You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain.
1 Corinthians 9:8-11
Do I say these things as a mere man? Or does not the law say the same also? For it is written in the law of Moses, “You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain.” Is it oxen God is concerned about? Or does He say it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written, that he who plows should plow in hope, and he who threshes in hope should be partaker of his hope. If we have sown spiritual things for you, is it a great thing if we reap your material things?
Spiritual things – material things
From the law you draw wisdom.
1 Timothy 5:17-18
Honor the Elders
Let the elders who rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the word and doctrine. For the Scripture says, “You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain,” and, “The laborer is worthy of his wages.”
Jesus said the laborer is worthy of his wages.
Draw wisdom even in leadership.
Whatever you do and if you are separated, we need a vital contact with Jesus.
There is life and a quickening
Miracle working. Jesus’ name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor.
There are three things which are too wonderful for me,
Yes, four which I do not understand:
The way of an eagle in the air,
The way of a serpent on a rock,
The way of a ship in the midst of the sea,
And the way of a man with a virgin.
- Man with a virgin
Every lock can be opened by the key Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ became the bread of life to the gentiles world.
Jesus will return to Jerusalem. Russia will come down from the top to attack Israel. This has not happened yet.
The bible is more modern than you think.
History is learning what happened and the bible tells us why it happened.
There are 4 stories of Jesus.
Matthew Mark Luke and John. The life of one Man.
Face of lions, ox, eagle
Gospel of Matthew – Jesus as a King (lion)
Gospel of Mark – Jesus as a Servant (ox)
Gospel of Luke – Jesus as a Man (traced all the way to Adam)
Gospel of John – Jesus as God. His divinity.
Eagle – fly in heaven
Eagle fly the highest
The way of eagle in the air is Who He Is.
The way of serpent is (from highest to the lowest, from uppermost to where we are) bronze serpent and lifted up on high. Whoever look at it live! He is the answer to everything in your life. – What He became
The way of a ship – is why He came
God sent His Son loaded with blessing full of grace and truth. He came with bread and conquered the giant for you and I.
The way of a man with a virgin – Jesus and the church – who He loves
Jesus went back as a Man
He is there representing you and I. He is one of us make it to the highest place and He represent us. As Jesus is, so are we in this world. God sees Him and we the same way. He sees Him as you
1 Peter 1:10-12
Of this salvation the prophets have inquired and searched carefully, who prophesied of the grace that would come to you, searching what, or what manner of time, the Spirit of Christ who was in them was indicating when He testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ and the glories that would follow. To them it was revealed that, not to themselves, but to us they were ministering the things which now have been reported to you through those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven—things which angels desire to look into.
Even angels are learning salvation.
The secret is the church. The church is God’s best kept secret. The church is the greatest organisation. Your disqualification is the qualification to join.
which in other ages was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to His holy apostles and prophets: that the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, of the same body, and partakers of His promise in Christ through the gospel, of which I became a minister according to the gift of the grace of God given to me by the effective working of His power.
Purpose of the Mystery
To me, who am less than the least of all the saints, this grace was given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, and to make all see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the ages has been hidden in God who created all things through Jesus Christ; to the intent that now the manifold wisdom of God might be made known by the church to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places,
Your calling is greater than just preparing your children for PSLE.
The church is God’s best kept secret.
There will be diseases only be healed in the church.
God will prepare the church with creative ideas that bless mankind.
We are in the best organisation in the whole universe.
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her,
God gave you a wife for you to love.
Jesus is the Groom.
You may poo but Jesus will still love you and change you.
From Jesus’ death came life to all mankind.
The way of a man with a virgin.
“For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
When God looks on earth He only see
- Church (make up of jews and gentiles)
Bible is divided for Jews, Gentiles and Church.
All the promises of God in Christ are yes and amen.
Rock (the Jew)
Virgin (the church)
