Sermon Note (4th svc)
You can’t make your heart stops or starts. By past everything and ask God for abundant life!!!
He came to make dead people live!!!
God has a place called His Wings! A place where we can take refuge. We can hide!!
Jesus came as Israel’s King. He came but they rejected Him.
God is waiting for His people to run to His arms.
God will not force even His protection on me. He will not force His blessings on me. If we would not He would not. He respect our free choice.
We have heaven and earth. We are not just people redeem. We are family of God! He is Father to us! What Christ did restore to us to better place!!!
For the tree of Life, everything hinges on man’s obedience, and there will not be security. If everything is good, it is not free choice.
In heaven, satan is not there. We have better now!
Rest. Rest is not doing. Rest is He do it and we rest in Him.
Live one day at a time. We don’t have the grace if we live like monthly or yearly. God wants us to live depending on Him. Give us this day our daily bread! There is nothing more secure than the confidence in God for His daily bread.
In OT, God gave them supernatural food from heaven. There is no grace for today for that day. We have the grace for it.
God’s way is never give me back enough. He gives us back much more! He forgives, He forgives freely!!!
Act towards the person with love. Not react. Don’t let people push my button. Purposely kind.
An island in Hawaii, there was a strange custom. If they need to get married the guy need to bring 3 cows. The richest man came to the village and everyone was excited!!
He went straight to the man’s house for the hand of the oldest daughter. The richest man gave 10 cows. They went for 2 years honeymoon! When they came back, the woman had a charm about her and radiant which was never there.
God saw value in us. How valuable we are is determined by what is given up and take.
Do we value the money or the dress?
The price is fixed. The price we have incurred and Jesus paid for us!
1 Peter 2:5-7
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. Therefore it is also contained in the Scripture,
“Behold, I lay in Zion
A chief cornerstone, elect, precious,
And he who believes on Him will by no means be put to shame.”
Therefore, to you who believe, He is precious; but to those who are disobedient,
“The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief cornerstone,”
When i set the value, there is something to live up to and not something to live down to.
Believe in Jesus and we will not be put to shame. To us who believe, He is precious!
This precious value, the value of Jesus is for me who believe!
To us is the preciousness of Jesus set on us!!
As He is, so are we in this world!!!
We are royal family of God. There is princely characteristics. We just shine instead of fight at the level of the person.
Live up to be the prince. The high calling of who we are.
The dignity and the heir of royalty!! When we are insulted, our faces shine. Royal priesthood!!
Diamond are precious because they are hard to find
2015, Jesus wants us to draw near to Him.
Someone shared to Pastor Prince. He felt condemned cos he just came out of prison. He was talking to Pastor Prince. Pastor Prince asked what is the difference between him and the person who came out of prison. Pastor Prince told him there is no difference. Pastor Prince said we are who we are because of the grace of God!
If we look at self instead of Jesus, we are going downward. If our eyes is on man, we are dejected. Lets follow Jesus. Put our eyes on Jesus!!!
True to what He told me. All that Jesus is, we are like Him!!
All that He is, we are!! God put us in Him. God judges us based on Jesus.
Say i am the righteousness of Christ even when we sin. Proclaim. We don’t lose our status by what we do or what we don’t do.
Go to Joseph Prince website to read testimonies. When we are down, just read one testimony after another.
Draw near to Jesus in this year.
Now the Lord called to Moses, and spoke to him from the tabernacle of meeting, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘When any one of you brings an offering to the Lord, you shall bring your offering of the livestock—of the herd and of the flock.
Never tiring. Always time for people!
Offering is the word for to draw near.
Jesus is my Offering and we draw near to Him effectively everyday!!
Talk to the Lord and tell Him i draw near to Him.
Draw near. Everyone who receive, drew near!
Draw near to Jesus!!!
We draw near first before Jesus healed from a distance.
1st coming of Jesus, Israel did not recognizes Him. 2nd coming, He will make known.
Joseph Revealed to His Brothers
Then Joseph could not restrain himself before all those who stood by him, and he cried out, “Make everyone go out from me!” So no one stood with him while Joseph made himself known to his brothers. And he wept aloud, and the Egyptians and the house of Pharaoh heard it.
Then Joseph said to his brothers, “I am Joseph; does my father still live?” But his brothers could not answer him, for they were dismayed in his presence. And Joseph said to his brothers, “Please come near to me.” So they came near. Then he said: “I am Joseph your brother, whom you sold into Egypt. But now, do not therefore be grieved or angry with yourselves because you sold me here; for God sent me before you to preserve life.
Come near. Jesus said come near. Come near. He loves like no other. He uses His power to forgive. He wants me near. He wants me near.
You shall dwell in the land of Goshen, and you shall be near to me, you and your children, your children’s children, your flocks and your herds, and all that you have. There I will provide for you, lest you and your household, and all that you have, come to poverty; for there are still five years of famine.” ’
Goshen-the place of nearness. We shall be near to Him.
Love loves the loved ones to be near.
Just want to be with you. Don’t have to speak.
In 2015, there, the place of nearness. Come near to Him.
We are in the place of Goshen. Draw near to Him!
