Sermon note (4th svc)
Pray outside will line up with inside.
Pray for it to happen.
3 John 1:2
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.
Prayers is corporation with God.
Everyone who came to Jesus were healed.
If u can believe, all things are possible thru Him who believe.
Unbelief means we don’t see who this wonderful Person Jesus is.
Faith is about seeing Him
Unbelief is about seeing my own emotions
Forget myself. Don’t look for anything in myself. Look To Christ!
Don’t go by my feeling.
Jesus will never leave me nor forsake me.
We are justified by faith.
Your unbelief will not make the sun “unshine”
If i believe the sun is shinning i will step out and get whatever i want.
We are aligning ourselves with the fact.
God wants us well and healthy.
Fight the good fight of faith!
God wants me to prosper even as my soul prosper!!
Gospel of grace and peace will produce health and abundance.
Repentance is change of mind
Reveal to me a fresh revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ!
God is out to bless me. God is not against me, He is for me!
1 John 2:12
Their Spiritual State
I write to you, little children,
Because your sins are forgiven you for His name’s sake.
“Forgiven” here is perfect tense
Little children – a family term
Bless the Lord all my soul and forget not all His benefits
Believe we are forgiven of all my sins and we will believe we are healed of all diseases.
When people know they are forgiven, they can receive healing.
Live in a state of wonderful forgiveness and love.
We have seen and looked and our hands have touched Jesus! Fellowship with the believers.
Pastor acknowledges sin and therefore preach about forgiveness of sin!
1 John 1:8-10
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.
What do u think is the greatest of all sin?
Whatever is not of faith is sin.
When people confess their sin, they confess the big one.
The biggest of all sin is unbelief.
Every gift is important. Wisdom is the principle thing.
First grp that went into lake of fire – the worm does not die and fire can’t be quenched
Jesus warned us about lake of fire. Hell was prepared for fallen angels
Before Jesus came, everyone was on their way to hell.
Jesus loves us even before we know what is love 🙂
But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
Repentance is towards God. Every repentance must be a fresh revelation to our Lord Jesus!!
The Apostles Commissioned
Then, the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, “Peace be with you.” When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord.
So Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.
What is fear? Whatever is not of faith is fear
Jesus came and stood in the midst.
He is always in the midst of our new hearts
Jesus seek us out and we were in fear.
We have peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
Let my face shine.
A real testimony is peace and joy. The more we see Jesus, the more peace and joy we have.
The other disciples therefore said to him, “We have seen the Lord.”
So he said to them, “Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.”
And after eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, “Peace to you!” Then He said to Thomas, “Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be unbelieving, but believing.”
And Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!”
Jesus said to him, “Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
Blessed are those who has not seen yet believe!!
Christ-occupied and not self-occupied
He comes to me and call me by name.
This produces true repentance
True holiness is produced with repentance towards God.
