Sermon note (4th svc)
God’s Word is God’s breathe.
Whatever is designed is designed by the breath of God. God’s secretaries are like Moses, Mathews. God uses human personalities. When God’s spirit breathed onto human personalities, every scriptures are God’s breathed.
In Your Seed, all the nations shall be blessed. This Seed is Christ Himself. In Him alone, all the nations shall be blessed.
Every word is inspired. The Greek and Hebrew of the old is word by word inspired.
Abraham instantly knew who that Divine Visitor was!
Whenever our eyes is on the Lord, we run! Our body will not know is old. We will know the Lord, our Maker!
As long as our eyes is on Jesus, we are doing supernatural. Peter walked on the water when his eyes was on Jesus!
God so loved the world He gave His only Son.
Genesis 18 is a family picture. The unseen divine Guest. He revealed His heart.
God being holy He has to judge. Judgement is always perspective. What God is. He is Love. Who God is. He is God. There is no one above Him to judge.
Can you imagine you have a 6 years old girl, she is been kidnapped and repeatedly raped. After one week they released her dead. Can you imagine the judge let him go because of his background? How would you feel about the judge?
God has to judge. God’s nature is not to judge. Do justice. Love mercy.
As judges, they don’t love judgement. Their hearts love mercy.
12 disciples walked with Jesus. They were familiar with Him but not all communion with Him.
Just speak the Word and his servant will be healed. This is a revelation of who Jesus is.
Familiar via intimate.
See the Lord, the God of love and grace.
May we have eyes to see and a heart to hear. Lets not be familiar, but be intimate with Jesus!!
Angels can turn into the form of man.
And the Lord said, “Because the outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grave, I will go down now and see whether they have done altogether according to the outcry against it that has come to Me; and if not, I will know.”
Then the men turned away from there and went toward Sodom, but Abraham still stood before the Lord.
2 Peter 2:6-8
and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly; and delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked (for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented his righteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds)—
Righteous Lot. He is a man called righteous but defeated.
Abraham was called righteous and he is victorious
The King is here. Man needs God completely, desperately.
Noah started a new world. That is government.
Dispensation of promise. In your seed, all the nation shall be blessed.
Dispensation of grace.
In every dispensation always end with failure and always blamed God.
Revelation of giving, but not greediness
God will send His Son. That is return of the King.
Jesus will come back at the end of tribulation.
Rapture is private affair. Not the second coming.
2 Peter 3:9
The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.
Would is a choice.
God is waiting for more to be saved.
Revelation of end time will cause people to walk with God.
God is long suffering. First characteristic of love.
Every born again person go up, when rapture happened!
We shall all be changed!
No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.
Friends. Abraham knew the judgement is going to happen. He is God’s friend.
Grace ends with rapture
Rapture is a mystery. 2nd coming is not.
A mystery was hidden in the Old Testament.
Millennium dispensation ends with man’s rebellion.
God wants to show man beyond of every doubt, in and of himself he cannot.
The King ruling. He shall come and heal!
During the 1000 year of rule, satan is bound
Gene has fallen cos of Adam fall.
There will be no more sickness when Jesus 2nd coming.
2nd coming –
We are the only one with incorruptible bodies.
We will all rule. There will be no more poverty. There is no lack. Longevity is the norm.
Everyone has to believe to be saved.
Hell is a place of torment.
The things that are seen are temporal.
Jonah’s Anger and God’s Kindness
But it displeased Jonah exceedingly, and he became angry. So he prayed to the Lord, and said, “Ah, Lord, was not this what I said when I was still in my country? Therefore I fled previously to Tarshish; for I know that You are a gracious and merciful God, slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness, One who relents from doing harm. Therefore now, O Lord, please take my life from me, for it is better for me to die than to live!”
Then the Lord said, “Is it right for you to be angry?”
So Jonah went out of the city and sat on the east side of the city. There he made himself a shelter and sat under it in the shade, till he might see what would become of the city.
The nature of our God, slow to anger.
And Abraham came near and said, “Would You also destroy the righteous with the wicked? Suppose there were fifty righteous within the city; would You also destroy the place and not spare it for the fifty righteous that were in it? Far be it from You to do such a thing as this, to slay the righteous with the wicked, so that the righteous should be as the wicked; far be it from You! Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?”
So the Lord said, “If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.”
And he spoke to Him yet again and said, “Suppose there should be forty found there?”
So He said, “I will not do it for the sake of forty.”
Then he said, “Let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak: Suppose thirty should be found there?”
So He said, “I will not do it if I find thirty there.”
And he said, “Indeed now, I have taken it upon myself to speak to the Lord: Suppose twenty should be found there?”
So He said, “I will not destroy it for the sake of twenty.”
Then he said, “Let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak but once more: Suppose ten should be found there?”
And He said, “I will not destroy it for the sake of ten.”
So the Lord went His way as soon as He had finished speaking with Abraham; and Abraham returned to his place.
Abraham has a purpose of saying 10. He wanted Lot’s family saved. 10 of them.
Now the two angels came to Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground.
Lets be Christians whom God is at home with
But he insisted strongly; so they turned in to him and entered his house. Then he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate.
Why is Lot a defeated man? He never value the blood.
Jesus said hell is forever. There is hell, not like some preachers who said there is no hell.
Then they shall eat the flesh on that night; roasted in fire, with unleavened bread and with bitter herbs they shall eat it. Do not eat it raw, nor boiled at all with water, but roasted in fire—its head with its legs and its entrails.
Raw means fire has not touched it.
Eat it roasted in fire. Jesus faced God judgement for our sins!! God is holy and judge and has to punish sin!
God punished His Son for our sin.
God is righteous in making us righteous!
God remembered our sins in Jesus’ body at the cross!!
We take communion we see Jesus as new fresh slain way
Bring in the cross!
Those who believe in the blood is delivered!!
Without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness of sin!
The blood protects us!!
Now before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both old and young, all the people from every quarter, surrounded the house. And they called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may know them carnally.”
So Lot went out to them through the doorway, shut the door behind him, and said, “Please, my brethren, do not do so wickedly! See now, I have two daughters who have not known a man; please, let me bring them out to you, and you may do to them as you wish; only do nothing to these men, since this is the reason they have come under the shadow of my roof.”
Righteous man, but he compromised and defeated.
If he is under grace, sin will not have dominion over him.
The devil wanna rob people of the truth.
If sin has dominion, the person is still not under grace.
And they said, “Stand back!” Then they said, “This one came in to stay here, and he keeps acting as a judge; now we will deal worse with you than with them.” So they pressed hard against the man Lot, and came near to break down the door. But the men reached out their hands and pulled Lot into the house with them, and shut the door. And they struck the men who were at the doorway of the house with blindness, both small and great, so that they became weary trying to find the door.
Sodom and Gomorrah Destroyed
Then the men said to Lot, “Have you anyone else here? Son-in-law, your sons, your daughters, and whomever you have in the city—take them out of this place! For we will destroy this place, because the outcry against them has grown great before the face of the Lord, and the Lord has sent us to destroy it.”
So Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who had married his daughters, and said, “Get up, get out of this place; for the Lord will destroy this city!” But to his sons-in-law he seemed to be joking.
When the morning dawned, the angels urged Lot to hurry, saying, “Arise, take your wife and your two daughters who are here, lest you be consumed in the punishment of the city.”
And while he lingered, the men took hold of his hand, his wife’s hand, and the hands of his two daughters, the Lord being merciful to him, and they brought him out and set him outside the city.
Lot lingered. The Lord was merciful to him. Lot almost had to be forced! The men took hold of his hand!
The mountain refer to where Abraham was.
Indeed now, your servant has found favor in your sight, and you have increased your mercy which you have shown me by saving my life; but I cannot escape to the mountains, lest some evil overtake me and I die. See now, this city is near enough to flee to, and it is a little one; please let me escape there (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live.”
Lot did not believe the angel. He did not focus on the blood. He did not tithe. Lot means veil.
There are some christians who are still veiled. The veil is the preaching of the law.
We are delivered from the law and be governed by the spirit.
And he said to him, “See, I have favored you concerning this thing also, in that I will not overthrow this city for which you have spoken. Hurry, escape there. For I cannot do anything until you arrive there.”
Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar. (Means small)
“I cannot do anything until you arrive there!”
Judgement from God, no. Until we are raptured.
Professing and not processing Christian. Lot’s wife turned into salt.
And Abraham went early in the morning to the place where he had stood before the Lord. Then he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain; and he saw, and behold, the smoke of the land which went up like the smoke of a furnace.
And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when He overthrew the cities in which Lot had dwelt.
The Descendants of Lot
Then Lot went up out of Zoar and dwelt in the mountains, and his two daughters were with him; for he was afraid to dwell in Zoar. And he and his two daughters dwelt in a cave.
God remembered Abraham and delivered Lot!
Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve the lineage of our father.” So they made their father drink wine that night. And the firstborn went in and lay with her father, and he did not know when she lay down or when she arose.
It happened on the next day that the firstborn said to the younger, “Indeed I lay with my father last night; let us make him drink wine tonight also, and you go in and lie with him, that we may preserve the lineage of our father.” Then they made their father drink wine that night also. And the younger arose and lay with him, and he did not know when she lay down or when she arose.
Parents speak calmly and believe God will give weight to your words. God is on your side. So parents don’t need to shout. Parents word carry weight.
The firstborn bore a son and called his name Moab; he is the father of the Moabites to this day. And the younger, she also bore a son and called his name Ben-Ammi; he is the father of the people of Ammon to this day.
Remember Lot’s wife. Jesus died on the cross. He is not willing that any may perish.
so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.
The world will get darker and the church will get brighter and brighter.
