Sermon note (4th svc)
Our Lord did not go down where the people were to receive praise. He went to the people who needed Him. He went to the sick.
People have the confident that God could heal, but not sure about His willingness. Jesus said He is willing.
Sermon of the Mount, Jesus went to the leper hidden among the stones, rather than going down to receive praises from people.
2 Peter 1:19
And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts;
Prophesy is the Light in our darkness until the day dawn.
Hope is the positive expectation of good in the future.
Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.
We rose in Christ! We are died to sin!
Whole universe is made of space, time and motion. In time there is trinity, past present and future. In space there is trinity, length width depth.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
The Comfort of Christ’s Coming
But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.
For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.
Once we are justified by His blood, we who are alive and remain will be caught up. We are saved from wrath.
His first coming was free favor. Jesus knew where to close the book. The day of be vengeance will be here.
If there is no justice there is no need for the cross. God is holy and must punish sin. He is love n therefore dun wanna punish sin in our bodies
In the new body we get to eat still!!
The Work of faith
The Labor of love
The Patience of hope
Faith Hope Love
It is not the things that we do, is why we do what we do!
1 Corinthians 10:32
Give no offense, either to the Jews or to the Greeks or to the church of God,
The church is saved from wrath!
And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.
Israel today is back in their land. They have Jerusalem yet they do not own them.
God so loved the world, not just Israel.
The true worship of God will make u independent on all fears
It is time for us to be vertical and not horizontal.
Only God people are in serenity.
Mercy – comfort (like a mother who will cherish her young in the womb, so the Lord does that to us. That is how God treats us)
God’s love affair with Israel is not over.
Find people of the same faith.
Daniel Explains the Dream
Therefore Daniel went to Arioch, whom the king had appointed to destroy the wise men of Babylon. He went and said thus to him: “Do not destroy the wise men of Babylon; take me before the king, and I will tell the king the interpretation.”
Then Arioch quickly brought Daniel before the king, and said thus to him, “I have found a man of the captives of Judah, who will make known to the king the interpretation.”
The king answered and said to Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, “Are you able to make known to me the dream which I have seen, and its interpretation?”
Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, “The secret which the king has demanded, the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, and the soothsayers cannot declare to the king. But there is a God in heaven who reveals secrets, and He has made known to King Nebuchadnezzar what will be in the latter days. Your dream, and the visions of your head upon your bed, were these: As for you, O king, thoughts came to your mind while on your bed, about what would come to pass after this; and He who reveals secrets has made known to you what will be. But as for me, this secret has not been revealed to me because I have more wisdom than anyone living, but for our sakes who make known the interpretation to the king, and that you may know the thoughts of your heart.
The person that God anoints, these are the people who has learnt to hide behind the name of God. Learn to hide behind Him, the glory of God.
Man makes big what God makes small. Know the why.
God will move kings. God has protected us and for the nation for the gospel!
Recently 10 of thousands of Jews left France for Israel.
Whatever is happening, is happening for the purpose of Israel and the church.
“You, O king, were watching; and behold, a great image! This great image, whose splendor was excellent, stood before you; and its form was awesome. This image’s head was of fine gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay. You watched while a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces. Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; the wind carried them away so that no trace of them was found. And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.
It will fill up the whole earth.
Stone cut out without hands. Jesus is our chief cornerstone.
The kingdom of the heaven at hands.
The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham:
In natural the chronology is upside down. David was the king of God’s choice. Christ is the Son of David.
Jesus spoke to them in parables. Only those who are hungry will see.
His kingdom was offered to Israel. If Israel had accepted Jesus Christ, heaven will come on earth.
Israel was cast aside and not cast out.
A church is from Israel and God form a new man.
The church has not replace Israel.
“This is the dream. Now we will tell the interpretation of it before the king. You, O king, are a king of kings. For the God of heaven has given you a kingdom, power, strength, and glory; and wherever the children of men dwell, or the beasts of the field and the birds of the heaven, He has given them into your hand, and has made you ruler over them all—you are this head of gold. But after you shall arise another kingdom inferior to yours; then another, a third kingdom of bronze, which shall rule over all the earth. And the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron, inasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and shatters everything; and like iron that crushes, that kingdom will break in pieces and crush all the others. Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay. And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile. As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay. And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever. Inasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold—the great God has made known to the king what will come to pass after this. The dream is certain, and its interpretation is sure.”
Even the king cannot change the law even though he loves Daniel.
Daniel saw a ram and a goat fighting.
And as I was considering, suddenly a male goat came from the west, across the surface of the whole earth, without touching the ground; and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes. Then he came to the ram that had two horns, which I had seen standing beside the river, and ran at him with furious power. And I saw him confronting the ram; he was moved with rage against him, attacked the ram, and broke his two horns. There was no power in the ram to withstand him, but he cast him down to the ground and trampled him; and there was no one that could deliver the ram from his hand.
Therefore the male goat grew very great; but when he became strong, the large horn was broken, and in place of it four notable ones came up toward the four winds of heaven.
His kingdom was divided among 4 generals.
Everything of man deteriorate. With Jesus, it never deteriorate.
Jesus is always altogether lovely.
Clay is democratic.
There is a grace revolution happening.
We are saved from wrath.
Preach Jesus will build big top mountain!
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.
He will come again without sin
Our sins are dealt with at the cross.
1 Corinthians 15:51-54
Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”
Death is swallowed up in victory!
