Wisdom of God
Wisdom is usually about big picture and overall plan of God. We need wisdom understanding and knowledge. The gift of holy spirit will give us word of wisdom.
God is going to turn things around for something bad into good!
Put words of knowledge into Pastor Prince’s mouth – word for individual who needs!
Hearing the Word is one of the ways of giving pleasure to Jesus!
Martha was working for the Lord. Mary was waiting before the Lord. Let Him give to us before we can give to Him. Drink is for personal consumption. Tonight come to drink. Don’t come to fatten the intellect.
Come hungry. Jesus rejoice in spirit! The bible opens up to those who are hungry like babe!
You must know how to rightly divide the word in the Bible. Don’t receive the curse as ours!
Hebrews 6 – people are confused and thought that we will lose our salvation. This is for Hebrews not for believers!
1 Corinthians 10:32
Give no offense, either to the Jews or to the Greeks or to the church of God,
Look at God is working with the Jews, the Gentiles or the Church.
God raised Israel because they were few in nos, and they were weak, so they cannot boast in themselves. Raise them up as testimony! You can choose to be positive or negative testimony!!
Genesis 12 to Acts, God was dealing with Israel.
God was dealing with Jewish people.
There are many reasons why Jesus died on the cross. Primary intent is to fulfill all the promises.
Now I say that Jesus Christ has become a servant to the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made to the fathers, and that the Gentiles might glorify God for His mercy, as it is written:
“For this reason I will confess to You among the Gentiles,
And sing to Your name.”
And again he says:
“Rejoice, O Gentiles, with His people!”
“Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles!
Laud Him, all you peoples!”
And again, Isaiah says:
“There shall be a root of Jesse;
And He who shall rise to reign over the Gentiles,
In Him the Gentiles shall hope.”
Book of Matt, Mark, Luke –
Book of John – stand allow
John was alive to be eye witness for Jesus. Jesus became flesh.
Books of Matt Mark Luke perspective were very Jewish.
Sending Out the Twelve
These twelve Jesus sent out and commanded them, saying:“ Do not go into the way of the Gentiles, and do not enter a city of the Samaritans. But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
When Jesus first came, primarily was for Israel. Is after Israel rejected Him, to provoke them to jealousy, Jesus went to Gentiles.
Now we are new creation!! 🙂
Let the children first be filled!
God sent Jesus to fulfill all promises.
Matt 12 – Jesus revealed He is greater than any king, priest!!
The elders rejected Him in His 3-folds glory.
The love of God – if Jesus spoke to the people openly the truth n they reject Him, the sin will be heavier. So He spoke to them in parables. Only those who are truly looking for Him will understand the parables.
Pearls in the sea.
Treasure in the ground – Israel.
Who redeem who? Is Jesus who redeem us!
Jesus died for the entire world for us!!
Treasure was hidden twice. Israel was hidden among the nations. They r supposed to be the head and not the tail but now they are suffering.
The Israel rejected Jesus. Jesus started off with Repent, the kingdom of the heaven is at hand! It was so close!! They were so close!!!
However Israel rejected Jesus. At the cross, Jesus put the entire nation under ignorance.
If u never love u never lived! Love do gets hurt. But do love still!!
The suffering Messiah is when He first came to die for our sin!! If they were to accept Him, He will be conquering Messiah.
Jesus closed the book in favor when He read Isaiah! So we are still in grace!! We are still in the dispensation of grace!!
Unto us a Child is born. Unto us a Son is given.
The visible kingdom was temporary postponed when Israel rejected Jesus.
Book of John is more grace-based.
Only when the King is here, all wrongs will be addressed. Is not the season now.
It was a prayer that kingdom come at the Prayer of the Mount.
We forgive because we are forgiven!!
Jesus put all in ignorance when He was on the cross.
The people mind were still on the kingdom, not the church.
Jesus wants to allow Israel another chance.
Peter preached. He honored them by saying u men of Israel and that they are ignorant.
The Israel returned to the land in unbelief.
Israel rejected Jesus in Person and in the preaching by Peter. Steven was preaching to the leadership and when they pushed Steven out. Steven saw Jesus standing at the right hand of God. He was ready to come down. They stoned Steven to death!
Acts 9 – Paul was saved
Acts 10 – Peter did not expect the people (gentiles) to be saved but they were saved with the holy spirit!!
God is giving the Jews another chance.
Paul was sent to preach to the Jews first than to the Greek!
Paul was a grace preacher. The people can’t be saved by the law.
Blessing and Conflict at Antioch
So when the Jews went out of the synagogue, the Gentiles begged that these words might be preached to them the next Sabbath. Now when the congregation had broken up, many of the Jews and devout proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas, who, speaking to them, persuaded them to continue in the grace of God.
On the next Sabbath almost the whole city came together to hear the word of God. But when the Jews saw the multitudes, they were filled with envy; and contradicting and blaspheming, they opposed the things spoken by Paul. Then Paul and Barnabas grew bold and said, “It was necessary that the word of God should be spoken to you first; but since you reject it, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, behold, we turn to the Gentiles.
The church of Jesus will make up of Jews and Gentiles!
He loves His people!
Now when we came to Rome, the centurion delivered the prisoners to the captain of the guard; but Paul was permitted to dwell by himself with the soldier who guarded him.
Paul’s Ministry at Rome
And it came to pass after three days that Paul called the leaders of the Jews together. So when they had come together, he said to them:“Men and brethren, though I have done nothing against our people or the customs of our fathers, yet I was delivered as a prisoner from Jerusalem into the hands of the Romans,
The world then, the HQ is Rome.
If u accepted Jesus, the kingdom becomes visible to us!! The kingdom of heaven is suspended.
The church of Jesus is in the kingdom of God but is not the kingdom.
So when they had appointed him a day, many came to him at his lodging, to whom he explained and solemnly testified of the kingdom of God, persuading them concerning Jesus from both the Law of Moses and the Prophets, from morning till evening.
‘Go to this people and say:
“Hearing you will hear, and shall not understand;
And seeing you will see, and not perceive;
“Therefore let it be known to you that the salvation of God has been sent to the Gentiles, and they will hear it!”
Then Paul dwelt two whole years in his own rented house, and received all who came to him, preaching the kingdom of God and teaching the things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ with all confidence, no one forbidding him.
The Jews are temporary blinded.
The bible said the Israel are beloved for the Father’s sake!
Israel’s Rejection Not Final
I say then, have they stumbled that they (Jews) should fall? Certainly not! But through their fall, to provoke them to jealousy, salvation has come to the Gentiles.
Abraham, Issac, were the firstfruits!!
U partake the anointing of Abraham!
We are grafted. Not we support the branch.
Well said. Because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith. Do not be haughty, but fear.
Do not be proud!
2 Timothy 3:16-17
All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
The righteousness comes as a gift. Doctrine comes first than reproof. Doctrine is teaching. Reproof is correction.

Paul is writing to all of us. If we wanna grow fast, read Paul’s letters.
But on the contrary, when they saw that the gospel for the uncircumcised had been committed to me, as the gospel for the circumcised was to Peter (for He who worked effectively in Peter for the apostleship to the circumcised also worked effectively in me toward the Gentiles), and when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that had been given to me, they gave me and Barnabas the right hand of fellowship, that we should go to the Gentiles and they to the circumcised.
Jewish christians call their unbelieving jews brother.
When you r born again, u love.
