Sermon Note (2nd svc)
By Pastor Prince
Our God is a God that does wonders and perform miracles!!
Lets contemplate on what the Lord has spoken to us at the beginning of the year.
More than one time, God has spoken to us. We are earthen vessels. God put His glory in us in the earthen vessels. He put His gems and treasure in the earthen vessels.
When we pray, we believe yet we have doubts in our prayers. This shows we are the earthen vessels and the power is in the glory of God!
It might be unjust in our lives, yet there is something in us, we always float. This is the treasure!! Jesus is in us! We try our best to be very depressed, yet we can’t be fully depressed! We have the eternal life of God in us!!
Israel got back more lands than they originally had.
Jesus God’s Son came and die just outside the gate of Jerusalem
There is a lovely Man in heaven for our benefits!! He is there representing us!
Jesus Christ is our High Priest forever! As He is, so am I in this world!
God is speaking! Pastor Prince is not a prophet, he is a pastor. He feed sheep and make us “fat”
Pastor mentioned about looking closely about what is happening in Israel in early of the year. And look at what happened to Israel now
Your greatest enemy will be what u did last year that work! God will expose us to areas we are not talented or strong in. We will become stronger in these area. It is not comfortable to our flesh. However, God is strengthening us! Feel loved! There is higher hands and lovely eyes leading us! He will not expose us to areas we are comfortable with. He will expose us more and more in areas we are not comfortable with in the flesh. Grace is supply. Open ourselves to greater supply! We will be opened to more. We are maturing! God is growing us!!
Whatever we are going through this year, those things that we are not comfortable in the flesh, we grow thru God putting us thru the areas we are not comfortable in! 😉
we are not here to use God. We are here to be used by God. He knows the end from the beginning.
If the Son set me free, i am free indeed.
We can come to a place that we are comfortable in our bondage!!!
Chicken don’t even know when they are dead. He did not get a revelation that he is dead, that shows revelation is not in the head but in the heart.
Devil makes man adapt to the bondage and live a small life!
We can be in bondage and yet still so strong.
Through the cross, Jesus who deserved all blessing, took our sufferings for us.
God renew our youth!! God satisfied our mouth so that our youth is renewed like the eagle!
He will renew our youth not like cockroach, but like eagle!!
We can be so used to our bondage that we stopped complaining!
There is something about God. When we say I cannot and He will do the I can for u.
Sermon should be prepared throughout the week. Not precooked and microwaved.
It is Jesus being revealed! Not how smart we are!
How strong a man can be, under extreme pain and distress, refused to call upon the Lord
300 against multitude that no one could number. The earthen vessel broke and light shines and the multitude fought against each other.
God uses thing that are weak.
A skull tells u it is the end of all human reasoning.
We want our lives to be governed by God’s word.
Why do u think Jesus died at the place called Skull?
God’s economy is opposite. He took 5 loaves to feed. Bigger the problem, easier for Him.
When it is very hard and big problem, it is easier for God!
Groaning does not sound like perfect prayer. Groaning is out of pain. God heard their groaning and God remembered!
Just a groan will reach the throne.
When you go down really deep, groaning, God remembers our covenant.
The sigh is more powerful than our pretty prayer.
God wants us to be weak so that His strength can flow in our weakness!!
I am the righteousness of God in Christ!!
Jesus has the necessity of love
We are saved in the ark!!
And Jesus said to him, “ Today salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham;
Jesus is the Salvation!
It is all about Jesus! He is my strength! He is my righteousness!
I can do all things THROUGH Christ who strengthen me!
Don’t try to adjust my weakness!
The Lord HIMSELF bore our sins in His own body!!! His own body that we might live unto righteousness!!
Himself took my infirmities. Jesus Himself drew near to me!
Don’t let your heart be troubled and i will come again to receive u to Myself.
Then He appointed twelve, that they might be with Him and that (in order that) He might send them out to preach, and to have power to heal sicknesses and to cast out demons:
Enjoy being with Jesus and i wont be conscious how big the sickness is.
Now it happened in the process of time that the king of Egypt died. Then the children of Israel groaned because of the bondage, and they cried out; and their cry came up to God because of the bondage. So God heard their groaning, and God remembered His covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. And God looked upon the children of Israel, and God acknowledged them.
God does not despise our groaning.
And I have also heard the groaning of the children of Israel whom the Egyptians keep in bondage, and I have remembered My covenant. Therefore say to the children of Israel:‘I am the Lord; I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, I will rescue you from their bondage, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments. I will take you as My people, and I will be your God. Then you shall know that I am the Lord your God who brings you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians. And I will bring you into the land which I swore to give to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; and I will give it to you as a heritage:I am the Lord. ’”
7 “I WILL”
God wants us to express our hearts!!
Connection with God.
Only LOVE can identify with people who are suffering.
Love cares for the pain.
Our high priest can be touched with the feeling of our infirmities.
Then, looking up to heaven, He sighed, and said to him, “ Ephphatha,” that is, “ Be opened.”
Immediately his ears were opened, and the impediment of his tongue was loosed, and he spoke plainly.
Believers are looking for Jesus in the rapture.
1 Cor 15:51-58
The truth of learning about rapture – redemption of our bodies!
Transformation of our bodies into His glory!!
We are steadfast immovable.
2nd coming for Christ is not rapture. Rapture we will meet the Lord in the air.
We live in the age people believe in aliens. It is a lie.
2 Corinthians 5:1-5
Assurance of the Resurrection
For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven, if indeed, having been clothed, we shall not be found naked. For we who are in this tent groan, being burdened, not because we want to be unclothed, but further clothed, that mortality may be swallowed up by life. Now He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who also has given us the Spirit as a guarantee.
For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body. For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.
Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
Learn to groan. There is a prayer in groaning. To groan means i am desperate.
We are groaning for the redemption of our bodies!!
Earnest waiting. eagerly waiting!
The apostles looked forward for rapture, not death.
We are forever young! Energetic forever! The whole universe is our playground.
Sozo is saved, rescued, delivered. Saved can also be healed.
80% of the time is for physically sickness.
When we rapture, we have a body that is never grow old.
Groan – stenazo
Therefore, when Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her weeping, He groaned in the spirit and was troubled. And He said, “ Where have you laid him?”
They said to Him, “Lord, come and see.”
Jesus wept. Then the Jews said, “See how He loved him!”
And some of them said, “Could not this Man, who opened the eyes of the blind, also have kept this man from dying?”
Lazarus Raised from the Dead
Then Jesus, again groaning in Himself, came to the tomb. It was a cave, and a stone lay against it. Jesus said, “ Take away the stone.”
Martha, the sister of him who was dead, said to Him, “Lord, by this time there is a stench, for he has been dead four days.”
Jesus said to her, “ Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?” Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead man was lying. And Jesus lifted up His eyes and said, “ Father, I thank You that You have heard Me.
Death is unnatural.
The wages of sin is death.
Sometimes all we have is a groan. Let it out.
90% of the church world do not understand about groaning.
