Theme of the Year 2014
The Year of Greater Glory
Time and Seasons. We need to be alert what God is doing.
There is a period where God does something in our lives.
There is a season for everything.
God wants His Son to be back in the centre of the church.
Understand the time and season.
Do not be comfortable with things that work last year.
You will become stronger. God will expose to you where it is not comfortable for you in the flesh.
Your natural strength and talent will not be exposed to you. You will be exposed to things you are not comfortable with.
Grace is supply! He will supply u in the areas you are not comfortable with.
Have a good sharp look at Israel.
The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord and He turns it wherever He wants.
The Year of Greater Glory!
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
Appearance that commands greater respect.
The people of God will walk in greater glory that they ever did!
Doxa – glory
(In the new testament always good opinion concerning one, resulting in praise, honor and glory)
Splendour, brightness of the moon, sun and stars
‘The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former,’ says the Lord of hosts. ‘And in this place I will give peace,’ says the Lord of hosts.”
The one that this temple is built to will come as Man.
The glory is greater cos the glory is tie to a Man, Jesus!
Glory can be seen. To behold the glory means glory can be seen. Greater glory means people will see the glory in our lives!
2 Corinthians 3:9
For if the ministry of condemnation had glory, the ministry of righteousness exceeds much more in glory.
This glory is a glory that will manifest and be seen.
God is in charge and directly in charge but not in the world. Not in the places where they are worshipping satan.
We got to be people lead by the Spirit.
God of Jacob denotes God of grace. He wants us to be reminded that He is God of grace.
The story of Lot. He fled to a cave somewhere. But the bible called him righteous man. He is a defeated righteous man.
Would u rather be like Lot or like Abraham ?
Put God’s kingdom first. Are u frustrated? U r living lesser than your dream! Time given to Him will never lost!
God is a God who is a debtor of no man.
Only God gives sweet sleep. Rest is directed activity!
The Gentiles Bless Zion
For your light has come!
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.
For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,
And deep darkness the people;
But the Lord will arise over you,
And His glory will be seen upon you.
The Gentiles shall come to your light,
And kings to the brightness of your rising.
“Lift up your eyes all around, and see:
They all gather together, they come to you;
Your sons shall come from afar,
And your daughters shall be nursed at your side.
Then you shall see and become radiant,
And your heart shall swell with joy;
Because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you,
The wealth of the Gentiles shall come to you.
U don’t shine until u arise!
The world getting very dark but the Lord will raise over us and His glory will be seen upon us!
His glory will be seen upon us!
The Lord will arise over me!
We will shine even brighter when there is darkness.
When Jesus came He went up another mountain with Peter and John.
Correction came from a bright cloud!
We are in the world but not of the world!
Christ in us the hope of glory!
The wealth of the gentile shall come to us! – your heart shall swell with joy!
Sea means the nation.
Kavod – glory
Glory, honor, abundance, riches, dignity and splendor
Jacob Flees from Laban
Now Jacob heard the words of Laban’s sons, saying, “Jacob has taken away all that was our father’s, and from what was our father’s he has acquired all this wealth.(kavod-glory)
Root word of kavod means heavy. Take God’s Word as weighty! Kavad – heavy
First mention of glory is wealth.
Give weight to the other party who is talking to you.
When devil say something, make light of it. When God say something, make weight of it!
Abram was very rich (kavad – heavy) in livestock, in silver, and in gold.
No one feeble!
1st result – family is blessed
2nd result – they will all come to us
3rd result – all very rich!
Wealth is coming!
Step into Christ and do what He wants us to do.
God will supply all my needs according to His riches
Sin means if our mind is not in a place of rest.
Sin means to miss the mark. (The mark here is the glory of God)
God’s dream is our mind full of peace
Life more abundantly that Jesus bless us with!!
Jesus wore the crown of thorns to give us the peace!
If u lose ur low life u will find ur high life.
God multiply time back to us. God is the One who blesses time.
Step up and do what the Lord wants us to do. Give to the Lord and it will be multiplied to us!
Give up small ambition. God has created us with big things where our souls are satisfied with.
Whatever we release to the Lord will not be lost.
Trust the work of the living God!
When Peter gave his boat for Jesus to preach, Jesus multiplied much more to Peter. He gave him load of fishes, net-breaking loads! And Jesus also named the fish after St.Peter fish.
God is a good God. Don’t make decision based on money. But base on the God’s kingdom!
God can multiply time!
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
Jesus prayed in the upper room for us!
And the glory which You gave Me I have given (given once and for all, and don’t need to repeat ) them, that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.
We are all ONE (all churches)
Done once and for all and never have to be repeated.
We are brought to glory. Rest love one another and let God take care of the glory!
Give weight to where it really matters.
The wealth of the unbelievers shall come to us! Amen!!
God is a God of Israel. Don’t be disheartened.
