Sermon Note – Theme of the Year 2015
By Pastor Prince
The Year of Restoration!
God has spoken and given a clear indication of what He wants to do this year. The Lord led Pastor Prince to do this years ago.
God always have a specific message for each church and their circumstance. Hear what the spirit says unto the churches. Which church u attend can literally means between life and death. If the church does not believe in divine protection, than it is between life and death.
God’s word and will are one.
Psalm 91 is all about divine protection.
Believing and praying for our brothers and sisters for always protected.
The things we r believing for, will come in 30 folds, 60 folds and 100 folds! Keep on believing God!
Eyes on the folds we have and the 100 folds shall come.
God’s order is to preach His words. We receive by faith. We are forearm and fore warn before it happens.
Do you only come only 1st day of the year to service? It is not working in this way. It will take series of sermons. Not one sermon for one year.
Pastor said last year to protect us from the virus to come and also see what happened to Israel. God wants us to pray. When God show something He wanna us to pray about it. When God reveal something and we pray, there is blessings!
Have the heart of relationship of God. Want from God what He says and want from God His relationship. Do not forsake the assembly of people together.
There are things Pastor saw happening.
The theme of the year flooded Pastor during his dream last year. He saw the theme of the year. The world was like boiling and he saw hands trying to squeeze Israel. It has to do with nations trying to squeeze Israel.
And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.
God will not allow the status of His nation to be changed. There is a lot of pressure on Israel. Just remember to pray for Israel.
Don’t boast against themselves. Pray for them.
People who has lost loved ones and relationship, God is getting ready to bless u with something greater in 2015!
Darkness in the earth and greater light in God’s house.
Make sure we deliver what God wants deliver.
He started watching Pastor sermon before he works. He hated his job and do not know what to do. Hearing the sermon, he learnt how to rest and let God works in me and lead me. God does not take away to fill up. God adds on. It is still a year of restful increase. It still goes on.
He continued to stay in his job and he learnt how to rest. When we rest God is able to work in my life. He managed to overcome battle in his mind as he meditated God’s word.
When we work, God rest. When we rest, God work!
He prayed for 3 requests. He asked for a woman who is able to be in the same spirit as him. He prayed for increment. He prayed for a deep relationship with God.
He found his life partner. He got married in the year of greater glory. They even got a twins and he works in his wife’s company which is more income.
The Year of HIS Restoration!
Christ on the cross is the love of God paying ransom to the justice of God. God is love and He does not wants to destroy us. God’s righteousness and holiness cannot allow Him to pretend the sins does not exist.
When man restores, it is never the same as original. When God restores, it is always greater in quality or quantity.
God will give us quality relationship that is 7 times better!
He is going to restore to us
Time we spent in sin are wasted time. If we return to Him, we trust Him, He is able to restore to us the year.
“So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten,
The crawling locust,
The consuming locust,
And the chewing locust,
My great army which I sent among you.
When the people are out of fellowship with Him, those are wasted time and wasted years!
Believe God can restore!
But this is a people robbed and plundered;
All of them are snared in holes,
And they are hidden in prison houses;
They are for prey, and no one delivers;
For plunder, and no one says, “Restore!”
Believe God is a restoring God!!
He restore us the
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
For I will restore health to you
And heal you of your wounds,’ says the Lord,
‘Because they called you an outcast saying:
“This is Zion;
No one seeks her.” ’
He is going to heal those who has long term condition. He shall restore health to us and heal us from those wounds.
Many of you have come to a place where the memory is not as sharp. God wants to restore my mind! Emotion and mind – soul!
When God restores is always greater in quality.
Pastor’s mind was so terrible because he could not concentrate when he was in sec sch. Today he could see verses coming up. His mind can just go to the passages and interpretation.
It is greater in quality. It is a gift from God. If you think the devil is telling u u r losing your mind, know that God keeps our minds sharp. Our flesh shall be fresher than a child.
Responsibility for Property
“If a man steals an ox or a sheep, and slaughters it or sells it, he shall restore five oxen for an ox and four sheep for a sheep.
God is going to restore more. 5 for an ox. 4 for a sheep. Ox is bigger. The greater the lost, the greater my restoration!!!!
God can restore. Start saying restore!
Where sin increase, grace super abounds!!!
It is a principle. Bring Christ out and bring principle out of it.
1 Corinthians 9:8-11
Do I say these things as a mere man? Or does not the law say the same also? For it is written in the law of Moses, “You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain.” Is it oxen God is concerned about? Or does He say it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written, that he who plows should plow in hope, and he who threshes in hope should be partaker of his hope. If we have sown spiritual things for you, is it a great thing if we reap your material things?
Be generous. Is it oxen God is concerned about?
Is God saying for our sake? He who plough should plough in hope!!
It is arguing for full timers to be taken care of financially.
1 Timothy 5:17-18
Honor the Elders
Let the elders who rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the word and doctrine. For the Scripture says, “You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain,” and, “The laborer is worthy of his wages.”
The very area we are weak in, we will be strong!!!
Do we go by doctors who are limited or go by God’s word?
God will even forgive sins that are unintentionally.
Offerings with Restitution
Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: “If a person commits a trespass, and sins unintentionally in regard to the holy things of the Lord, then he shall bring to the Lord as his trespass offering a ram without blemish from the flocks, with your valuation in shekels of silver according to the shekel of the sanctuary, as a trespass offering. And he shall make restitution for the harm that he has done in regard to the holy thing, and shall add one-fifth to it and give it to the priest. So the priest shall make atonement for him with the ram of the trespass offering, and it shall be forgiven him.
God looks on Christ and forgive us!!
He is a Lamb without blemish. Without blemish is outward. Christ has no spot and no blemish.
Make restitution. Even in our worship or service, there are sins, pride. Glad that God has covered that.
20%. He made full restitution and add 20% to it. This is 120% of restitution!!
These are pictures of what happened in Calvary.
Those who hate me without a cause
Are more than the hairs of my head;
They are mighty who would destroy me,
Being my enemies wrongfully;
Though I have stolen nothing,
I still must restore it.
But this happened that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, ‘They hated Me without a cause.’
Even though it is my fault, God will restore.
God has gained. God has become a Gainer.
Adam fell, he was a creature and God is a Creator. There was no relationship. Adam had the earth but he was never a joint heir with Jesus Christ.
Now there is family! We have relationship with Jesus.
If Adam did not fall, in paradise there was a snake. The enjoyment of the garden, if Adam did not fall, some will. This is insecurity.
Death is a shadow. Death has no more teeth. In heaven, there is no place forbidden.
God has gained by the word of Christ. God’s heart is thrilled to have a family!
If Adam never fell, they will never able to sing the song of redeem.
God has gained a family! A family that is eternal!!!
Our security depends on the obedience of Christ!!!
Jesus the second Member of Godhead has gained thru the cross!
Jesus wear the crown of Redeemer!
He takes joy in His role as Redeemer!!
Redeem is tied very closely to restore!!!
Our understanding that produce faith in God’s redeeming power!!!
The holy spirit the third Member of Godhead has also gained!! His delight is to dwell in the sons of man. This closeness we have with God’s spirit.
Restoration- 120% more!!!
then it shall be, because he has sinned and is guilty, that he shall restore what he has stolen, or the thing which he has extorted, or what was delivered to him for safekeeping, or the lost thing which he found, or all that about which he has sworn falsely. He shall restore its full value, add one-fifth more to it, and give it to whomever it belongs, on the day of his trespass offering. And he shall bring his trespass offering to the Lord, a ram without blemish from the flock, with your valuation, as a trespass offering, to the priest.
Jesus restored what He did not take away. He shall restore in its full value and add 20% to it! So that the injured party become gainer!!
Whenever the devil attacks, look for spoils. Look for gains.
Man is new creation with eternal life! Adam was never an heir. We are joint heir with Jesus Christ!
Jesus restores what He did not take away.
5 times in book of Romans, God said MUCH MORE MUCH MORE MUCH MORE!!!!
those who received abundance of grace shall gain much more!!!
For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.)
The work has been done! He did it!!
The law of 1st mention. The story of Joseph, a type of Christ.
God is going to do something for us this year!! 120% is ours! It happened in the year of famine!
Gather the increase. 1/5 of the increase, store it somewhere.
Joseph gave them seeds to plant. 1/5 of the producers belong pharaoh. The rest of 80% they can enjoy.
Pharaoh received 20% he did not possess.
He now have the 20% he never had during the plentiful year!
Pastor Henry has amazing healing anointing.
When tragic happen, it is not the time to ask why. The ones who passed on are not lost. They are living somewhere.
Whatever we have lost, stop asking why. ‘Why’ will bring us to downward spiral.
Don’t give up.
We shall still win after we lost.
How can we position ourselves?
The battle has been accomplished. Our fight is a fight from finished work! We fight from victory!!!
Physical symptoms does not seems happening. It is a fight of faith and not of feeling !
It will come as we rest.
The Lord the Shepherd of His People
A Psalm of David.
The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
He leads me. He leads me. The Lord said lie down.
Still water means the water of rest.
He wants us restful in what He has done.
True faith always issue rest.
Path of righteousness. It takes strength. Restoration – true activity is when we rest. Be still and let God takes over.
If the man does not marry Ruth, the land is at state.
Then she said, “Sit still, my daughter, until you know how the matter will turn out; for the man will not rest until he has concluded the matter this day.”
God only reveal what is necessary!!
God will not satisfy curiosity’s seeker.
Sit still. The man will not rest – a type of Jesus!!
Boaz will do it if Ruth sit still.
When we sit still, the Man at God’s right hand go to work.
It is a life of directed activity. It is not inactivity. It is spirit-directed activity!
Sit down. Loosen your shoulders. Breathe in.
The Man will not rest until He has finished the work in our lives.
God will protect and preserve us.
Ask God to keep us from tragic and protect us.
