Christianity is resting in the done.
Don’t try to finish what he has finished or complete what he completed
Fight of faith
Defeated before we begin when we think we engage devil to defeat him
He is already defeated.
I am the healed. Regardless of bodily symptoms. We are healed.
Provision – regardless of what we seen we have the supply. What we see is temporal.
If believing God for life partner, see that your life partner is supplied for already.
In the OT, the HP rept people to God. Prophet rep God to people. Bible calls Jesus HP and not Prophet. If HP is good, God accepts entire nation.
Jesus loves u even whilst u face your hang ups. He is your bath. How many of us clean ourselves before we go to the bath? Come to Jesus as you are and He will clean u up. We don’t become a better man to get saved. We get saved to become a better man.
If the HP drops dead in the holy of holies, nation is doomed. If comes out ok, blessed.
Our HP has no successor and lives an endless life.
God doesn’t look at u to assess u. Looks at Jesus.
We are transformed by beholding His glory and not our gory.
The most frequent quotation in the OT – Ps110. U are a HP forever under the order of Melchizedek
Melchi- King, Zedek- Righteousness.
Pastor was a stammerer. His area of greatest weakness becomes his strength under grace. U dun have to despair under grace about ur weakness. Gospel glorifies the lost, the last, the least. The lost son, the last shall be first, the little mustard seed… But areas where u trust yourself, God cannot help u. God gets all the glory.
Melchizedek- pre incarnate appearance of Christ.
He met Abraham who was coming back after defeating the Kings.
King of Shalom- health, wholeness, peace, well-being
Bread and wine = communion
Food of life 🙂 Jesus came to give u life and life more abundant. Not life and more loss.
We took God’s son and nailed Him to the cross despite all He did. Then God took the cross and turned it into a symbol of His unconditional love for us.
Little Justin won’t know how much Pastor loves him. Vertical love is always greater than the descending love.
His body was broken so that we might be put back together.
People taking communion get younger and younger. Belie their age.
Levitical priesthood – blesses and curses
Melchizedek priesthood- blesses and blesses
Jesus is under the Melchizedek priesthood – blessing no cursing.
Abraham gave him a tithe.
Masser – tithe
The rich is in the tithe
Abraham responded w a tithe. No one told him to or taught him there. Revelation. We get to give 🙂
The devil wants souls. Doesn’t care about the wealthy. Devil didn’t create silver and gold. Daddy God did.
U build ur house for ur kids. God build the house for u.
Does he know he is going to become v rich?
Abraham didn’t want to give the King of Sodom the credit. He know he just tithed. Aser is in v23.
Doesn’t matter what happens in the world.
Holy means set apart. When the world is depressed u are at peace. World is confused. U are at rest. Opposite of holiness is not sin. It is commonness.
What u set apart is holy and what is holy the devil cannot touch.
The priesthood of Jesus is greater than the levitical priesthood. Grace came through the son. Law came through the servant. Law temp. Grace permanent.
We will be rich to show how great Jesus is.
Here mortal men receives tithes
And in Heaven, He receives (Jesus is still receiving the tithes according to the tense) the tithes.
See v8. This is post resurrection.
He doesn’t need our 10% He made the galaxy that is still expanding.
Jesus receives. Leviticus priesthood takes. Grace receives. Not forced.
When we rest, God works. When u let go, God takes hold. When u take hold in ur mental processes, God lets go.
Take no thought. Don’t worry. Lilies of the field clothed. Birds of the air fed.
V8- Communion releases health. The tithe releases wealth. Health and wealth isn’t the gospel, grace is the gospel, but it releases health and wealth.
the communion bears witness that He died, the tithe bears witness that He lives. How?
Asenath- gentile bride of Joseph. Joseph’s brothers didn’t recognize him when they first appeared. The Jews didn’t recognize Jesus at first coming. At second coming, Joseph’s brother recognized him. The Jews will recognize their messiah and Israel will be saved.
With all His power, no heart for revenge. No resentment against the Gentiles who put him there. He will draw us close. There will be famine but he wil draw us close.
Israel still think Jesus is dead.
Joseph told his brothers- go home and tell my father I am alive.
Sometimes people don’t believe our preaching until something happens. When Jacob saw the blessings, He believed. In the tent, can’t see, he didn’t believe. Stepped out of the tent and saw, he believed.
Jacob believed= name changed to Israel!
Abraham tithed to Melchizedek and Levi was inside Abraham tithing to Melchizedek. Law is under grace. When we tithe we affect our generations.
Jewish 0.2% population of world but they have disproportionate blessings.
Richest young people of the world today are Jewish.
FB bought WA for 19b
The founders of both are JEWS
We have the fullness of the covenant. The Jews have the material part but we have the full covenant.
The Jews are the natural seed. We are the supernatural seed.
Do not tithe out of obligation. Tithe from revelation.
Proclaim the LORD is great in their lives. Show how great He is.
2Cor 8- Jesus became poor at the cross that we, through His poverty, become rich.
Jesus cross cleared the debt. No more debt we owed God. How much seed u want to plant? Sow sparingly reap sparingly. Sow bountifully reap bountifully.
He doesn’t need your tithe as much as you need His disproportionate blessing.
U decide. U don’t have to tithe and will be supplied coz of His grace. But when u tithe from revelation, look out for the disproportionate blessing coming ur way.
There is a dying world outside, pray big prayers to be blessed to bless others. God wants u to prosper to have more than enough.
This message will affect your generations depending on what u do with it.
How come the God of Christianity is portrayed to be weak and suffering at the cross?
He became poor, weak and suffered because of His love for u. He laid down his life for us. Love compelled him so we can be saved. All He does, He does for us. He knows us by name.
