Sermon note (2nd svc)God gives fresh air, not man.
God is a good God! Good things is happening to us!
Abraham Justified by Faith
What then shall we say that Abraham our father has found according to the flesh? For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God. For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” Now to him who works, the wages are not counted as grace but as debt.
David Celebrates the Same Truth
But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness,
If we r justified by our own works we have something to boast, but in the presence of God, no flesh shall boast.
All Abraham did was he believed God and God accounted to him righteous
God showed Abraham the stars.
See if u are able to number the stars. The number here tell the story
Abraham was righteous because he believed the gospel. Counted here means to set into account. Something is imputed to u.
Set into account right standing with God.
We cannot fulfil the law. The law is not just outward, is inward. The law is something either we keep it all together or no longer under the system.
Grace will make us a giver!
The law tells man what he should be. God justify the ungodly.
God gave His Son so we accept Him as our Savior. We cannot do the work perfectly on our own.
When God is angry, is His strange act.
All our sins have been punished at the cross! All our sins were future when Christ died.
God accept us based on the righteous foundation of His Son’s death.
God’s righteousness is on our side.
Whoever way we look at Jesus, He has no sin. Yet He suffered and died on our behalf so that He can take our punishment!
God’s righteousness is now on my side
David Celebrates the Same Truth
But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness, just as David also describes the blessedness of the man to whom God imputes righteousness apart from works:
“Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven,
And whose sins are covered;
Blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin.”
Abraham Justified Before Circumcision
Does this blessedness then come upon the circumcised only, or upon the uncircumcised also? For we say that faith was accounted to Abraham for righteousness. How then was it accounted? While he was circumcised, or uncircumcised? Not while circumcised, but while uncircumcised.
God does not count our sins against us.
We are blessed because God WILL NOT input sins to our account!
Jesus restored souls.
If we say we are sinners and Jesus is our Savior!!
There shall be no evil happen to the just! We are now the righteousness of God in Christ. The seed of the righteous is delivered!
God hears our prayers.
We have influence with God.
The only man made thing in heaven we can see is Jesus’s wound!
Jesus’ bones stared at Him at the cross!!
Jesus was stripped naked and His blood dried up and they put on Him purple silk and stripped Him again and He bled again!
He was wounded for us!
Is the Person who became the Sacrifice! He the Only One who gives names to the creature, He became our Saviour!
Tithing by revelation! If u don’t have revelation, pls don’t tithe!
Preach the truth. The true Grace message! If we preach the truth, God will back us up! He will bring us the resources!
Jesus will come again and receive us unto Himself!
God will rapture us. The judgement of this world are what we have been redeemed of. Therefore there is rapture before the judgement of this world!
Simple does not means cheap. God paid the infinite price.
God will not input sins to us.
God will deal with us because He loves us!
He loves us. He will not input sin to us. He will never use diseases on us. Whatever He carries on the cross, we will not carry.
God loves me. He will deal with us but not with accidents or to hurt us.
Jacob was righteous by faith. God said He will keep him wherever he goes. He was corrected by God but God is still keeping him.
Judging ourselves in the right way. Not condemning.
Whatever happen in your life don’t blame God. See what u can learn
God wants us free, full of peace. The more we let go, we will be free. Live one day at a time.
Moab is My washpot;
Over Edom I will cast My shoe;
Philistia, shout in triumph because of Me.”
If u find fault with people because it is in your eyes.
You don’t want God to leave u alone.
God dun want us to spend our years of climbing to climb the wrong wall!!
And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons:
“My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord,
Nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him;
For whom the Lord loves He chastens,
And scourges every son whom He receives.”
If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons. Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live? For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness. Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.
God people who has been dealt with, you can feel the presence of God, the princess and prince. You can feel the royalty.
Royalty dun take for granted services we receive.
God gives us a land flowing with milk and honey!!
For everyone who criticise you, there are 10 who don’t! For everyone there are 10 whose lives are blessed!
We are created to be empty so we can contain Jesus!
Disciple is not taking your lives away.
Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live?
Rely on God, not on ourselves.
God waited until Abraham was 100 years old when he was completely weak.
Thank God our priority is realigned.
God wants us to profit!!
For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness.
Jesus is my Holiness. We learn to be partaker of His holiness.
Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.
God disciple is for this life and for our profit!
It produces the fruit of our right standing
God wants to develop character in us. Character to back up the title we hold.
Ask ourselves is there something you want us to learn? Learn from it and we develop
