No matter where you are, even if u are seated at the back, u can also receive to the full! He is a good God. Amen!! If you have a need, He is meeting it tonight.
He will take our seeds, bless it into a tree and bountiful fruits await you.
Lord I receive. In all the dead places, resurrection. I receive health and power in areas of affliction.
Tonight pastor going to share w us tonight what he touched on superficially a few Sundays ago.
Wisdom. Knowledge. Understanding.
Word of wisdom- prophetic insight. Word of future.
Word of knowledge- eg. Pray and feel the word “rejection”. So before u pray for the person, u pray for that rejection. And when the person hears u pray about it, they feel so loved.
2 persons got confirmation their lumps in breast were gone after prayer and healing last time. One of them had confirmed cancerous lumps and it is gone.
Word of knowledge- that’s a word for me. Like God is talking for me. Endeavours that the word he preaches is prophetic in nature.
Hearing the Word is a kind of worship. Martha was working for the LORD. Mary was waiting before The Lord. He found pleasure in the one waiting before Him. Let Him give to u so He can give through u.
U must come to Jesus and drink. Personal consumption. Out of our bellies will flow rivers of living water. Come to drink.
Come because hungry. Bible comes alive to those who are hungry. Jesus rejoiced in the Spirit – babies are always hungry. Cry because hungry and want to be satisfied.
This bible can be easily understood if I can rightly divide it. Who is it written to? Who is it speaking of? Some receive anything. Claim words for unbelievers of Jews turning away from Jesus and turn back to Judaism before believing in Him (Hebrew 6- written for the Hebrews. Not us. Some don’t care about context n get misled)
1 Cor 10:32 KJV
When God looks down through all his dealings men, either working w Jewish, Gentile or Church.
Gen to Tower of Babel- dealing w Gentiles. No Jews yet. Before Abraham. But God temp suspended the Gentile blessings (Gen 11). Then said will make of Abraham a great nation- Israel. All the blessings and favour are for them. Chosen because few in number so can’t boast in their numbers. Weak so can’t boast they are strong. God uses them to be a positive testimony of His glory. Establish that He is the True God
Gen 12 – started the Jewish people… Up to book of acts. For Jews.
Jesus died on the cross to bear our sins and to destroy the power of the devil. Destroyed power of the devil with his own weapon. Primary intent to fulfil promises to Jewish fathers.
After the Jews, through them, the Gentiles will be blessed.
Matthew, Mark, Luke – synoptic gospels. (Together)
John- stands in class of its own. Written after Paul died. John was preserved. Around after the false doctrines appeared after Paul died and was around during Jesus time. Aka the gnostic gospels.
1 John 1- written for Gnostics. Chapt 2 onwards – for the children of God…
John was there and can testify in the deity of Jesus.
Matthew- tax collector. Wrote Matthew for the Jews
Mark- wrote for Romans
Luke- wrote for Greeks
John- for the world (For God so loved the world…)
“Do not go into the way of Gentiles…”
Church made of Jews and Gentiles but are one new MFN.
Matt 10:6- first coming was for Israel. To provoke Israel to jealousy after their rejection, opened salvation to the Gentiles.
Remember the lady who wasn’t Jew but whose daughter was demon possessed. She called Jesus, “Son of David”. Pretended to be Jew. It was only when she called him LORD that deliverance came.
Jesus said in Matthew 15: (to add in the verse number later)
She said LORD help me and received it.
God sent Jesus to fulfill all those promises. She went ahead of time with her faith and received. It wasn’t the time yet. He had not yet died.
Matthew 12- Jesus revealed self as greater than the temper. Greater than any priest. Any king. Any prophet.
Elders rejected Him in his threefold glory.
If Jesus spoke to them openly, their guilt will be heavy if they do not receive. So spoke in parables and hid the truth in them for those who are ready.
Sea- Gentiles. House- Israel.
7 Kingdom parables- 4 outside and 3 inside.
Men who found treasure in the field- Israel.
Men who found pearl of great prize- world
Men with the drag net- not there yet
Some say Jesus is the treasure in the field. U think u can buy Jesus? So who redeems who? U gave up everything and bought the treasure? C’mon.
He died for the entire world to get the treasure in the field (Israel) Treasure hidden twice. Israel was hidden among the nations. Supposed to be a saviour/ kingdom nation but now struggling. When Mary was preg, Gabriel said Jesus was to bring the kingdom of Heaven on Earth. Sitting on the throne of David… But they rejected Him.
“Repent, the kingdom of Heaven is at hand…” Where the kingdom is there is no death, disease or poverty. Kingdom was soooo near.
That is why when Jesus hung on the cross, He put them under the Leviticus ignorance offering.
Jesus wept. He wished they had accepted Him so He could have been like a mother hen gathering her chicks. They would not have seen the Romans.
The suffering messiah – came first for our sins.
The conquering messiah- 2nd coming.
Isaiah- said year of favour and day of vengeance of The Lord. Jesus closed the book at favour. Days of vengeance is not yet here.
When people say God is judging America or nations, don’t believe. Not yet at that age.
Still in days of favour.
Isaiah 9- unto us a child is born……. Govt of the world on His shoulders. 2000y transpired but didn’t reveal to Isaiah yet.
Jesus sitting on His father’s throne today. Not yet on David’s throne- in the future, temp postponed.
John is grace based. Benefit of Paul’s gospel. Matt, Mark, Luke wrote from a Jewish perspective
Sermon of the Mount- some things there no one do yet. Only when King comes that there will be justice and righteousness.
In the Synoptic gospels: Unless u forgive, God can’t forgive u…
Sermon of the mount = laws of the kingdom
LORD’S prayer= prayer of the kingdom
But later Paul wrote, forgive because u are forgiven. Grace
Not for is to think like God or we are God.
Today we forgive because we are forgiven. What a motivation.
More than 500 saw Jesus in resurrection form. Disciples asked Jesus if He would now restore the kingdom. Not for u to know. Was going to allow Israel another chance.
HS baptised 120 of them in the upper room with the HS and prayed in tongues.
Be baptised and God will send restitution. God will send Jesus Christ.
If they had listened to Peter and said blessed is He who comes in the name of The Lord, Jesus would come back right away. But they came back in ignorance.
People got saved and the persecution started. They rejected Jesus in person and also rejected the teachings of Peter.
Jesus was standing as per what Stephen saw before he was stoned, ready to come back if they would call out to Him.
God made the legalist of legalists, a grace preacher.
Acts 8- sons of Ham saved. Gentiles saved
Acts 9- Paul saved. Line of Shem
Acts 10- Peter didn’t give altar call but HS came and Cornelius and family prayed in tongues. Cornelius is from Japeth’s line. Peter still didn’t see Jesus plan.
Peter featured lesser and Paul featured more and more.
Jews of dispersion – Jews who were taken into captivity but not returned. Paul was sent to preach them. Preach to Jews first then the Greek
Preached in synagogue in Antioch- preached can’t be saved by law and only through Christ.
Gentiles were hungry.
People persuaded to continue in the ways of the grace of God.
Grace can stir up the devil in people. Some people despise it.
See Acts 13:46- rejected again so turned back to Gentiles because Jewish Dispersion rejected Him again.
Kept going to Jews first then go to the Gentiles.
The last chap of Acts- shipwreck and Paul brought to Rome
Rome was then the HQ of the world. Paul had favour with the Centurion
Paul called the leaders of the Jews together. – leaders of the Jews of Dispersion
V22- Christianity called a ‘sect’
Church is now in the kingdom invisible. Kingdom of God now. Not kingdom of Heaven yet.
Church is in the kingdom of God but it isn’t the kingdom. One day when Jesus returns, He will establish the kingdom.
Some were persuaded in V24- but later also rejected.
Acts 28:28-today we are the result of the rejection by the Jewish Dispersion.
Acts ends w the rejection by the Jews of Israel and the Jewish Dispersion
Blindness which anti-semitism happened.
Enemies for gospel sake but Beloved for the Father’s sake.
V11- they = Jews
V12- God can bring them back
V17- partake in the blessings of Abraham and its fatness.
V18- but do not boast against the unbelieving Jews.
We are saved by the instrumentality of the Jews. Saviour of the world is Jewish. Except for Luke, the bible was noted by a Jew.
U are grafted on to them. Not u support them.
Rom 11:29- don’t be haughty.
2 Tim 3:16-17
Every good church follows this order
Bible given for doctrine, reproof (of wrong conduct), correction (of wrong doctrine) and instruction of righteousness
Christian church letters:
1 & 2 Cor
1 & 2 Thess
Letters are v personal. Warm. God didn’t include in as doctrine
Jewish Christian Letters
1 John, 2 Jn, 3 Jn
Paul writes to all of us. Want to grow, read Paul’s letters first.
See Gal 2:7-9
Paul apostle to the Gentile Christians.
Peter, James and John to the Jewish Christians.
Note: Jewish Christians call unblv Jews brother. If born again u love. Not born again, hate. How u diff btw saved or not.
We can learn from the letters written to the Jews also but the ones applicable are the letters of Paul.
Everything is written for us but not everything is written for us.
Judgment began amongst the Jewish people. Peter warned them that if they continue to reject the Messiah, judgment would begin w Jews.
Don’t misapply scripture
Heb10 – sin if they reject the messiah and continue back to temple sacrifices when Jesus’ sacrifice is once and for all
Do we study the OT? Of coz. Jesus concealed in OT. But rightly divide. Learn how to by Paul’s letters.
HS has designed your bible in such a way that it isn’t in Chronological order. First letter of Thes is last letter in the bible but first letter written. Romans about gospel of grace and written much later but placed first. Read in order.
See the order:
1, 2 Cor- reproof
Eph- doctrine (sit walk stand, wealth walk warfare)
Col- correction (becoz of many going into Gnosticism)
1&2 Thess- doctrine (second coming)
Now u can ustd when u read the scriptures. Pls remember that coz never said the rest of the bible is not for us. Written for us but not to us. Anyone argue ask if they are circumcised.
Replacement theology is wrong. Israel has its place. The church has not replaced Israel. We have the fatness blessings because we are grafted. The same blessings of Abraham flow in us because of this grafting. Jews still minority race but have won more Nobel prizes than any race in the world. We see Blindness has happened to them- in part. Many Jewish Christians out there. Thank God.
Let us not be haughty lest we fall into the same blindness.
