Sermon note (1st svc)Abundant Life!
If God suffers grieve, it is not allowed to give and pour out His love.
You are too blessed to be stressed!
Something good is going to happen to you.
God is perfect love and His nature is to pour out. God did not create man for us to suffer for Jesus. Persecution is not suffering the evil that Christ has taken on the cross. The work is finished.
Jesus is the only way. We suffer for love’s sake.
We don’t suffer by receiving what Christ has suffered and died to give us.
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
Meditate on these words – Jesus come that we may have life and have it more abundantly!!
Anything short of abundance is not lined up.
Jesus come to give life and life more abundantly!
He came that we may have life and have it more abundantly!!!
The Ritual for Cleansing Healed Lepers
Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “This shall be the law of the leper for the day of his cleansing: He shall be brought to the priest. And the priest shall go out of the camp, and the priest shall examine him; and indeed, if the leprosy is healed in the leper, then the priest shall command to take for him who is to be cleansed two living and clean birds, cedar wood, scarlet, and hyssop.
Anything in OT is a shadow of the NT
Lepers they live life cut off from others.
Whatever we touch or good things we do, if we are lepers, anything we touch is uncleaned.
“He shall be brought” – this is passive. We are brought by the Holy Spirit! We could not have come to Jesus unless the Father first drew us.
If you turn away from Jesus, He does not run after us, He respect our free choice. We walk away from abundant life.
If someone is leper from top to the end, the priest will pronounce him clean! If we say through and through we are sinner, than Jesus is able to save us!
Growth in Christ is not getting stronger, is feeling weaker in of ourselves and Christ getting stronger in us!
We need Christ!
The Lord loves me. The Holy Spirit brings us to Jesus!
Our Priest is our Lord Jesus!
We were blind and Holy Spirit brings us to Jesus!
God designed the Gospel to save sinners. Gospel means good news!
No Jews were cleansed in the OT. The day of cleansing never happened to them until Jesus came!
The Lord come and live inside us and we rest in Him! We cannot but our Lord Jesus can!!
Don’t worry about your life, what you shall eat. Isn’t your life more than food?
When Jesus spoke this, the leper heard it.
Jesus walked towards the leper! He travelled all the way to those who needed Him!
God will not allow demon to touch free choice. When Jesus came, the demon-possessed man run to Jesus!
Jesus spoke one word,”Go!” And the demon fled! He became evangelical!
Jesus cares! A little gal who wanna a father’s love. Jesus cares!
These 3 things are what Jesus wanna us for abundant life! –
Clothed with righteousness
To be peaceful (rest in Jesus)
To be in the right mind
“If you are willing, make me clean” the leper spoke to Jesus. Jesus touched him. A leper was not touched by anyone for very long. Jesus touched him first before cleansing him. Immediately the leper was cleansed!
First time the leper was cleansed in the history.
The only thing that is man-made in heaven is Jesus’ wound for us!
He can bring 2 birds. One for sin offering and one for trespass offering.
The blood! The blood of Jesus! When we talk about the blood of Jesus, the holy spirit respond.
Trespass offering means we get much more than what we have lost! If you are cheated, u get much more back of what u have lost. In the very area of your weakness, God’s grace will triumph !
Put the blood of trespass offering on the right thumb, and on the right loop of the ear and right toe
(Whatever we do and walk we prosper!)
God will put us at the right place at the right time!
Right ear right thumb and right toe!
Where the blood is, the oil comes on the blood!
The oil is representation of the holy spirit. Where the blood is honored, the holy spirit respond.
It is not how we walk it is where we walk.
When we are in the light, the blood of Jesus Christ continuously cleanse us! We are righteous by the blood of Jesus!
The blood keeps us clean!!
Our part is to believe we are cleansed all the time! When we are conscious of the blood, the spirit comes!!
Only kings are anointed with the oil.
Prophet Priest and King are anointed!
Poor leper was cleansed and got the oil! What an honor! Whatever we have lost by sin, God’s grace abound!! Where sin increase, grace much more abound!! (Super abound)
Instead of despairing we have sin, now there is more abounding grace in this area!
That is not to say we go and sin.
There will be much more grace when there is already sin. Don’t have fearful expectation of evil. Grace super abound when there is sin. Our future is doubly blessed and bright!
We are giving them the reason and power not to sin!!
Listen to the Holy Spirit.
Take communion and we are healed. The manifestation comes 30,60 and 100 folds.
They shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover!!
Healing ministering now –
Those with neck condition, you cannot turn your neck, will u pls stand?
Those with pain in the body, will u pls stand? Right now, not last week.
Someone with tooth condition, and that is bothering u, will u pls stand?
Father in the name of Jesus, receive the healing. Heal that tooth Lord. In the name of Jesus, heal right now.
Right now in Jesus’ name be healed. Redeem that tooth Lord.
The moment u respond, God starts to heal. I command that pair of lungs be healed! Right now God is touching your lungs. I see that white dot that removed!
In the name of Jesus start doing what you cannot do before, those who have pain in the body. Move your arms and necks in the name of Lord Jesus!
God is still healing people.
Through this man is preached to you the forgiveness of sin. When Paul came to this point, when Pastor was quoting Paul, the chimes played on its own. (One of the bible study sermon)
It is like saying, it is music to the Lord’s ears.
There is a storehouse in heaven with many beautiful young body parts, where sickness is, healing much more abound!
Hope for the future! The Holy Spirit is in us!
We are all ministers! We are royal priest! Pray for the sick! Don’t be afraid!
The Holy Spirit answers to the blood!
Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high.”
THE Promise. The Promise of My Father! What is THE Promise? Endued with power from on high. Baptized with the Holy Spirit!
The Holy Spirit Promised
And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “which,” He said, “you have heard from Me; for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.”
Christ will come back physically! He went up bodily and He will come back bodily in the second coming of Christ!
Rapture, He will come for His church (bride) first! He will call us in the air and we will meet Him there.
Judgement seat of Christ is whether we will be rewarded for the things we do or not. When we stand there, we are standing in our new bodies!
When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
The law demands but never impart. What the law demands the spirit supplies and gives!
Holy Spirit is not there to demand. He is there to impart and help!
Spirit was given and 3000 people were saved in that day!
This Jesus God has raised up, of which we are all witnesses.
Therefore being exalted to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He poured out this which you now see and hear.
See and hear! You have the holy spirit once u r saved! It is one thing to have holy spirit, it is another thing for holy spirit to have us. Baptism in holy spirit is to immersed in the holy spirit.
Commands of grace is enabling. It is part of our nature!
The Promise of the Holy Spirit
On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”
But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.
When Jesus glorified, holy spirit given.
And the Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon him, and he tore the lion apart as one would have torn apart a young goat, though he had nothing in his hand. But he did not tell his father or his mother what he had done.
The Holy Spirt has come to live with us forever.
Grieve not the Holy Spirit because He never leaves!
It grieves because of love. Only love can be grieved.
How grieve u are is how much u love the person.
Baptise with the evidence of speaking in the Holy Spirit.
Be conscious the blood of Jesus is ever cleansing us!
The best way to battle the thought problem, is the blood constantly cleanses us! The blood cleanses us all the time.
Those who cares abt sin, sin-conscious that condemn them, these are the people who understand grace. The blood keeps us clean!!
When He shed His blood on the cross, all heaven rejoices! It pleases the Lord to crush Him. God’s Son died in our place! We don’t deserve the bad life or anything bad
Grace is getting blessing we don’t deserve. It is paid for by Jesus’ blood!
Be careful because of titles to your name, you get what you get. Grace ceased.
Grace don’t stop when there is sin. If sin can stop God’s grace, revival will never starts.
It is not just dying for our sins. He redeem us from curses!
Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”), that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
Many of us put in a lot of efforts to find little handful. That should not be.
Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law. He has paid for us!!
Christ became a curse for me! Wow!
The payment to buy me out from curse market is His blood!
Curse is everyone who hangs on a tree!
He had to die on the cross. Those who died on the cross is cursed. He gets to fulfil the scripture.
He died on the cross to redeem us from the curse. Christ redeem us from the curse of poverty.
God never says money is the root of all evil, is the love of money that is the curse of all evil.
What is the purpose to redeem us from the curse?
That the blessing of Abraham may come to the gentiles. Gentiles, as long as you are non-Jews, u r gentiles.
Blessing of Abraham is righteousness!
Blessing are on the head of the righteous!!
Just is another way to say righteous!
No evil shall happen to the just.
The prayer of the righteous man avail much!!
Be careful what you pray! Our prayer avail much! Accurate!
The price He paid was Himself became a curse.
First blessing of the righteousness is the promise of the Spirit! Receive the promise of the Holy Spirit through faith!
It is this blessing that brings every blessing!!
Of all the trees in the garden you can freely eat.
Freely eat! Look at the generosity of our Lord! To show the tithe, acknowledge Him. We don’t have to tithe, we get to!
Knowledge of good and evil tree. God told Adam the day he eat of it, dying he shall die. Die spiritually and die physically.
Instead of asking – Is this good or evil?
Ask – Is this what the spirit is saying?
Sometimes doing “nice” thing might not be a spirit thing.
When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven you.”
And some of the scribes were sitting there and reasoning in their hearts, “Why does this Man speak blasphemies like this? Who can forgive sins but God alone?”
But immediately, when Jesus perceived in His spirit that they reasoned thus within themselves, He said to them, “Why do you reason about these things in your hearts?
Reasoning in their hearts –
When u live by reasoning, u cannot live abundant life.
Spirit can get it real fast!
Perceived in His Spirit-
Why do u reasoned ?
Jesus lived by perceiving. Spiritual perception.
saying, “Men, I perceive that this voyage will end with disaster and much loss, not only of the cargo and ship, but also our lives.” Nevertheless the centurion was more persuaded by the helmsman and the owner of the ship than by the things spoken by Paul. And because the harbor was not suitable to winter in, the majority advised to set sail from there also, if by any means they could reach Phoenix, a harbor of Crete opening toward the southwest and northwest, and winter there.
In the Tempest
When the south wind blew softly, supposing that they had obtained their desire, putting out to sea, they sailed close by Crete. But not long after, a tempestuous head wind arose, called Euroclydon. So when the ship was caught, and could not head into the wind, we let her drive.
The centurion was more persuaded by the helmsman and the owner of the ship.
South wind blew softly –
What is the spirit saying to you?
Be led by the spirit. Stop looking at the past. God is your rearguard.
The spirit bear witness to the spirit.
He will always lead us to path of plenty and much rest.
The spirit will always lead us to the land flowing with milk and honey.
