Sermon note (4th svc)By Pastor Prince
The gospel of the glory
The glory cloud has filled the house.
God will never leave you nor forsake you.
When you come to The Father’s house, He always wants to give you gift.
The gift of healing. Heal the sick, cleanse the leper, raise the dead. Freely you have received, freely give. All in one verse.
The world when they get sick they know who to turn to. Every good and perfect gift is from God. When the good don’t meet the need, they go to God.
We did not realise is freely received, that is why not freely give.
Freely give. Because the way we receive is freely receive.
Prayer is the hand that takes.
See yourself accepted as Christ has accepted and love as how Christ loves
Freely you have received, freely gives.
Joseph Prince is preaching the gospel of grace, not message of grace.
The gospel is for your marriage, your career, your parenting.
The faith that the bible talks about is faith in God. Faith giving to you.
The faith that pleases God is faith that sees God as giving.
Majority is not always right.
The thieves come to steal and destroy. If you have a thief in your company, that is how he does.
Abba, Son of the Father.
Learn how to receive and receive.
Horizontal relationship, it is more blessed to give than to receive.
We come to God, we see God as a Giver, we honor God.
Many of us forgot to read the bible and don’t read the bible in physical bible.
People are neglecting the bible.
Jesus is the living Word. We need to see the glory of scripture.
Be a body builder inside of you. Feed on the living Word.
Matt, Mark, Luke – synoptic means to see, to gather
John – a class of its own
4 stories of Jesus’ life.
Now where there is remission of these, there is no longer an offering for sin.
Hold Fast Your Confession
Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, (stands on 4 pillars – Matt, Mark, Luke and John,) that is, His flesh,
When we confess our sin is to acknowledge we are forgiven. Not to confess for Jesus to forgive us.
God does not want sin offering. If you go full time, it is a calling, not go as sin offering. Stop your sin offering.
Come to God as if Jesus just died just now.
A 1000 year is 1 day with God.
In the Old Testament if you come to the holy of Holy you might die.
The more you come to God, you are living.
There are people who embrace Christian term but not Christ.
Come in new and living way!
Touch the gospel as if God is right in front of you.
Spend time reading the gospel again and again.
God wants the church to be the centre of your life.
Blue is heaven. When heaven and earth meet, you get royalty. White is the colour of linen.
Lion is the king. David- kingship. Abraham, the Lamb. Matthew is the gospel of the King.
Jesus came from the house of David.
Luke goes all the way back to Adam.
Don’t travel at the speed of the world. The faster you go, the “behinder” you get
God’s way is always pull back and you go far.
The key hangs at the door. The key to every book is on the door.
If you live with Jesus, your labor is not in vain.
If any man thirst, let him come to Jesus and drink.
God puts the key always at the door.
Keep the perspective on the theme of the book and you are ok.
In the beginning (the theme of the chapter) keep your perspective with the theme of the chapter.
Joseph and Mary goes all the way to David.
In Matt, He was born King, not born to be
Thamar, Rachab, Ruth, Bathsheba mentioned. They are mentioned. Why did God choose these 4?
Thamar was chosen
Rachab the story of salvation (save us despite our sins)
Ruth the story of redemption
Bless them that curse you.
The deeds of the king. Centre of Gospel of Matthew.
Kingdom of heaven.
Gospel of Mark
Starts off with no genealogy
Luke portrait Jesus as the Son of Man.
Talks about the glory of Jesus. That is why face of man.
Genealogy traced all the way to Adam. The genealogy of man
Is it possible you go on for a few days and you are not conscious of Jesus?
When you seek Him out, you know where He is.
Pilot has seen eagle flys where plane can only go.
There is no genealogy in the gospel of John.
Every leader must have 4 faces.
Face of lion (put your foot down, serve. Learn to be a Servant. )
Reading the gospel of John will renew your youth like eagle.
The 4 book – Matt, Mark, Luke and John
Story of Soverign
Story of Servant
Story of Savior
Story of Son
The gospel of Matthew starts off with kingship.
The throne and the land.
“Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”
Open with God is with us and end with God is with us always.
Gospel of Mark- Jesus busy healing.
Christ Ascends to God’s Right Hand
So then, after the Lord had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen.
John’s Birth Announced to Zacharias
There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the division of Abijah. His wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elizabeth.
And He led them out as far as Bethany, and He lifted up His hands and blessed them. Now it came to pass, while He blessed them, that He was parted from them and carried up into heaven.
He was not parting Himself. He was still blessing them.
He is in the heaven blessing us!
Love one another and believe on Jesus Christ.
Engrossed in Jesus’ love for us.
See Jesus in His love. There is no way Peter will jump into the water to Jesus if he did not see Jesus in His love.
Forgiveness and love
To know the love of God. The love of God.
To write the love of God will drain the ocean dry.
Know the length, the depth of God’s love.
No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.
He constantly live in the bosom of the Father.
He is conscious of the Father’s presence.
Gospel of John
The Beloved Disciple and His Book
Then Peter, turning around, saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following, who also had leaned on His breast at the supper, and said, “Lord, who is the one who betrays You?”
It opens with love and ends with love.
In beginning was the Word. Jesus did not exist an appointed time. He always existed.
Sense the gospel. This is what you get when you read the bible.
That You May Believe
And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.
If you are sick, read up on the miracle that you might believe.
Miracles are called signs.
The day of celebration has come.
Wine to have wine you must wait for the vineyard. After you get the wine, you keep it longer to get the best wine.
Jesus saved the best for last. Last generation
95% of the gospel of John are not found in other 3 gospels.
The gospel of Mark, 90% can be found in another gospel.
Matthew and Luke, same story, in Luke 7
And a certain centurion’s servant, who was dear to him, was sick and ready to die. So when he heard about Jesus, he sent elders of the Jews to Him, pleading with Him to come and heal his servant. And when they came to Jesus, they begged Him earnestly, saying that the one for whom He should do this was deserving, “for he loves our nation, and has built us a synagogue.”
Then Jesus went with them. And when He was already not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to Him, saying to Him, “Lord, do not trouble Yourself, for I am not worthy that You should enter under my roof.
What is put and omitted is by divine intent.
You want grace? God resist the proud but give grace to the humble.
Stay low; nobody can insult you.
Before destruction, the heart of man is proud.
We have nothing without Him
Before a fall, the heart of man is haughty.
God wants us to have more grace. The dew fell on people who are low. Stay low and you will get the dew.
Look at self, you will be depressed. Look at Christ, you will be lifted up.
With God, there is no time and barrier, or space and geography.
The name of God in the burning bush. I Am.
Don’t close your eyes to imagine Jesus. Read the bible.
Before the High Priest
Then the detachment of troops and the captain and the officers of the Jews arrested Jesus and bound Him. And they led Him away to Annas first, for he was the father-in-law of Caiaphas who was high priest that year.
Then they came to the place of which God had told him. And Abraham built an altar there and placed the wood in order; and he bound Isaac his son and laid him on the altar, upon the wood.
Jesus is the true Issac.
If you are discouraged, go to read bible. Read John.
Both Matthew and John you find the King and the Son of God.
Myrrh – gospel of matthew
You want to touch the anointing, read the book of gospel and book of Act.
Stop looking up your symptoms in the net. Start reading the gospel! The anointing is there!
Everytime i read the scripture the most, i am in the best frame!
So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.
The moment the Son of God died, they cannot even break His leg when He died. The price is paid!
Everyone who was crucified rested their head back. Jesus’ leg was not broken to fulfil the scripture. Jesus was the Only One who crucified who bow His head to rest His head.
The last thing He did was worship.
Bow head – Genesis 24
Then the man bowed down his head and worshiped the Lord.
Jesus bowed down His head. Jesus worshipped the Lord at the cross!
Bowing His head has 3 reasons-
2. Submission to the Father
He rested when He finished the work. He found His rest in loving us!
The gospel of the glory! The gospel of the Son of God! Amen!!
