Zane- my right shoulder joint has been aching for two weeks. Had applied pain relief patches but no avail. Couldn’t sleep well in bed. Watched a video of Pastor’s sermon in Israel when he prayed for healing. She asked for healing and the ache totally left on the spot.
Another sister said she strained her right wrist. She served with Chinese worship team that morning. Hand hurt holding mic. Attended English sermon, felt a sense of relief as Pastor preached and she was healed.
A brother’s wife was diagnosed with dengue fever. Platelet below the count. On Friday her platelet went down further. Sunday dropped further. 91 billion platelets per litre. Attended English service. Too weak to stand. They were unable to get platelet count from last test. Continued to listen to sermons and heard another testimony of healing. Next day, took blood test again. Her platelets shot up to 156 billion players per litre which is the normal range!!!
Brought Justin on holiday, only McDonald there only Asians were from Singapore and were from NCC.
Happy Father’s Day. U are a very special breed. No matter what people think a mother’s love and rightly so, some things children only want their mum, but father’s bear the greatest responsibility of the house. Sometimes we don’t tell our wives even. We don’t tell them so they won’t be burdened too. Sometimes stress is there and it’s ok to be honest, it sometimes winds up with u being tensed and u snap at her,
It all begins with love for the family and the devil tries to use that to condemn u. Don’t. Every time there is a failure, the man always tries to condemn himself – if only I earn more etc, father’s, say forgetting those things that are behind and reaching forth for those things that are before, I press towards.
Let this be the day u walk in the leadership and learn to possess your possessions in Christ.
Women have a sensitive soul. No problem. More women go to church than men. Where men really needs help it is in the house of God. God’s Word is like a soothing balm and calms u from your fret and worries. To have power to make right decisions in your career, u need to be relaxed. Don’t give in to your anxieties. Don’t be like the world. Those always taking care of themselves with own might will break down. Rest in The LORD. Be like Jesus. Follow him. He’s a man’s man. Took beating and scourged and carried cross n carried all our sins.
Luke opens with dumb priest that can’t bless. Closes with a High Priest hands extended blessing his people. No distance with anointing of HS. Anointing is strong wherever faith is.
The LORD gives u the wisdom and spiritual knowledge u need for your family and career. Give u the wisdom that made Solomon great.
Give u the anointing that makes all u undertake easy and effortless and favoured. Bless u with health and strength in the LORD Jesus Christ. May He reveal more and more of Himself to u so u can be strong and do exploits. May He make u the sort of Father ur kids are proud to tell their friends about. Amen.
60s and 70s in Florida, 40000 men incarcerated. A minister worked amongst the prisoners. Shared that… And most of them are men… He only found that there were only just 6 Jewish prisoners. This is amazing. He did a research how come there are only 6 because they are so sharp and shrewd they know not to be caught. It was to do with family life. Every Shabbat. They will all come together as a family. They put aside everything to gather as a family. Even today, the non-orthodox Jews do this. Many of these prisoners did not have a father’s presence at home. Margaret Thatcher once said she wanted to penalise the parents because many of the juvenile delinquents’ father’s presence aren’t there at home. What a Father says carries a lot of weight. If u always say disparaging and discouraging things… No matter how their friends praise them, they still need that praise from parents. So bless your children. Something is imparted and they will always remember that. A church where pastor first felt the presence of God, someone brought him and his brother and mother to church. First song he heard was silent night. His first toy that he got in church was the plastic parachute soldier toy. Was five plus then and sensed the presence of the LORD. So if u think ur kids aren’t registering anything, keep on praying. If ur teens live under your roof, come to church. For the Legacy camp youths, many of them will tell u they were rebellious and don’t wanna participate but when anointing falls can’t stop crying and worshipping. Sense something they can’t find in their friends and school. They sense His presence. Take back control from your teenager.
Love will tell u when u do something wrong and will have discipline because u love the person. Spank on butt. Never strike the face or leave a mark. After disciplining Justin, Justin responds so lovingly. Be a Father. Be the leader of the house. Don’t let your kids tell u what they like and don’t like.
Eg. When our mothers feed us and we grow up, we still gravitate towards what they fed us
Train up your child in the way they should go and when they grow up they won’t depart from it. Train up. Never train down. The word ‘in the way he should go’—> in the way of his mouth. Teach them what to say. Mouth is also for eating. U put what food is in their mouth- junk food or spiritual edifying food? There will be a taste. They might depart for a while but will come back to it. Even when they are fifty year old men. All the memories will flood back then.
Kevin from Florida. Suffered from epilepsy and grand malseizures. Did all he needed to do but nothing worked. No avail. Confess healing scriptures. Bound and loosed things. Cost him two marriages and carpentry biz and almost his whole life. After 25 years, still no healing. Received “Destined to Reign” felt heavy burden fall off him. Realised he has been unconsciously condemning himself. Condemn self, nothing u do works coz coming from wrong place. Take communion knowing you are healed. Not transubstantiation- don’t focus on physical cup and physical wafer. Time to declare what u have already in the spirit. Declared love and healing and is now seizure free!!
Don’t follow a formula apart from the LORD. Don’t understand anything? Go to Him. Don’t know how to hear from Him? Ask Him how to and He will teach u in a very personal way and u will know it is Him.
Luke 14- Jesus was invited to a Pharisee’s house. Sat down there. The mind of Christ.. He breathes the breath of heaven and noticed how people take the top position in the house. Puffed up in self importance. Offended his mind. Shared how they should take low position and later if told to go higher there is honour. The Son of Adam wants to be everything and is proud. Jesus is everything but humbled himself. In our flesh dwells no good thing.
Said to the people following Him, they saw him as a Rabbi. Like Nicodemus. Saw Jesus as a teacher to give them a new formula of law to succeed in life. He IS the Saviour. Before u come to know what He teaches u need to know Him first as Saviour and not Teacher.
He left the house and a great multitude followed Him. Great multitude. Gave us one of the most beautiful parables.
Jesus said you need to love Him above natural ties such that it seems to others like natural hate.
How to dwindle your crowd. Put me first, put me above other ties, and pick up your cross. Deny yourself. Follow me.
After he said that-
Then all the tax collectors and sinners drew near to Him.
Jesus spoke tough words.
V2- the Pharisees saw Jesus’ response to the sinners.
May people see that compassion in you if not not Christian. Just “Christ Ian”
These sinners saw Him as saviour and the flood gates of his love opened up to them.
Shared about the man who went seeking after that one missing sheep, leaving the 99 behind to do so. It wasn’t the sheep who sought the good shepherd but it was the shepherd who sought the sheep. I found Jesus. No. He found u. He isn’t lost.
Parable of the Good shepherd – Jesus
Lost coin- woman who sweeps through the house to find the lost coin. Asked friends to rejoice with her. Pic of HS sweeping through earth to find us.
Prodigal Son- pix of the Father’s love
So who is behind your salvation? The triune God. All three- Father, Son and HS
It gives Him joy to seek and save the Lost. This is the message needs to hear. Not religion. God finds JOY saving u. Even when prodigal son came home, the Father didn’t stone him to death. That is the law. They were under the law in that prodigal. But he wasn’t stoned, he was kissed. Law demands u love God. Grace declares I love u and I will find u no matter where u run away to.
Some say if they can’t understand they can’t accept. Yet these people they don’t understand how AC works or how their medicine works… God will find u. But the wasted years and nights… He’s finding u even as Pastor is preaching.
Friend if we can meditate on this, it will help us understand better the heart of God. God is good. God is love. That’s the important thing u must know.
Jesus is coming back to judge the earth, not us. Second coming. Receiving church unto himself= rapture.
He gave a great supper.
If a friend invites u for supper, he provides the food and cutlery etc
Why great supper? According to what it costs. Imagine a biz man who sells all he has to give a great supper for the poor. Imagine now if God spreads the feast? There will be no feast like this one. Those who come to Jesus and believe in Him shall never hunger or thirst. Everything is ready.
Supper is evening meal. Strengthens u before u go into your darkest hours.
Servant- many mentions of helpers or servants without name in the bible. Sometimes refers to Jesus. Draw attentions to Jesus and not self. Eg. abraham’s servant and Joseph’s servant. Boaz asked his servant about Ruth. HS will bring good reports about u.
All things are now ready. U come to receive and not to give. Come to enjoy.
What does Jesus want u to understand? Justification and peace is ready. Health is ready. All things are now ready. Power is ready. Anointing is ready. Wisdom is ready. Just come and receive.
Under law, God is demanding.
Under grace, God is providing.
Under law, God demands love.
Under gospel, God gave His Son because of His love
We are under supply and not demands now that we are under Grace.
God provoking and anointing and imparting and bestowing are new supplies.
V17 – all things are now ready. Invited to come.
Who buys land first then goes to see it?
Who buys cars (oxen) first then goes to test it out??
The excuses to not come to the supper are not valid and very lame.
Tell men if they want to be right with God, they just fast and do long pilgrimages and climb mountains… they will do it.
Come and everything is provided for… And it is hard to get them to come.
New Testament- when people refuse to receive what God has provided = what angers God and grieves God. Because He loves.
Jesus is always cool and always on time. No Hastiness. No rush.
The writer is so glorious to make such an amazing hero. It takes a divine author.
Zacchaeus make haste and come down-
Only time Jesus asks u to hurry is when he knows u are lost
V22- there is always room for u and for me. With God, even when the blood of Passover lamb first applied- take the lamb and if the household is too small for the lamb, then invite your neighbour. That lamb dies for those people and for those past present and future & there’s still room. That’s the quality of the lamb.
There’s plenty of poor people with plenty of money. Poor spiritually.
All of us are blind and lame plus all these people in the parable who gave lame excuses.
Who does God invite? The poor, the maim, the lame, the blind.
In this parable, hides truths of end times. The HS’ last moves are amongst hedges- the iron curtain, the bamboo curtain, God is going to move in China and Russia mightily. God will move where there is a fence.
Twas love that spread out the feast and sweetly forced me in. For if I had still not a taste, I would perish in my sin.
Love will compel u.
Nobody was there that was not compelled
Men so blind they had to be compelled to come and eat
Compelling- with regards to our kids. We are going to church. Don’t feel also must go.
Woman near Phonecia who pretended to be a Jew. Called him son of david. Used by the Jews of their messiah. We don’t call him son of david.
She came in pretence and Jesus said nothing. Come to God and be real. He loves it. If I are honest with Him, will sense his presence very quickly. Loves unveilinf of our hearts. Tell God your anxieties, worries, fears, temptations
Remember Samuel’s mum, Hannah, only her lips moving. Lips moving but no vocal sound. Got her son.
Discern who Jesus is addressing. Is He speaking the law to those who are under the law? Grace?
Which sermons are we under?
Upper room. All Jesus shared there.
I’ve many things to say to u but u are not yet able. But when HS comes, the HS will teach the church present day gospel truths.
No competition btw Jesus and Paul and MMLJ
MMLJ- was the now word then.
Jesus calls healing the children’s bread. Not right to take the children’s bread and give to the dogs.
LORD, even the kids eat the crumbs that fall off the master’s table.
Healing is on that table.
Lady from India had painful sores on her face. Couldn’t sleep or wash face. Did all she could. Avoided foods, saw doctors and applied meds.
Started to believe she is the righteousness of God in Christ. Believed God for healing and got it.
U are not a gentile now. U are seated at the table.
Pleasures of sin deceives for a moment. This is a forever supper here that we talk about.
David is now King after being hunted and chased around. Seated on the throne. Covenant brothers with Jonathan who died.
2 Sam 9:3-7
Kindness = Hesed >> Jewish believers know this as Grace
Jesus shared during road of Emmaus that bible is all of him
Jonathan- gift of God. Picture of Jesus.
David is like God and God has a covenant with Jesus (Jonathan) for the House of Saul (house of flesh).
Men will be the weak link so God cut a convenient with the perfect man- Jesus, who represented men.
Jesus exalted in heaven before he came as a baby.
“In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.”
Isaiah 6:1-3 KJV
If someone calls u Nazarene, it is calling u lowly.
Jesus the Nazarene was glorious. Healed all who came to Him. And then was scourged, sent to the cross. He was the word made flesh who dwelled amongst us.
All of us have been dropped in our lives
The sons of Adam have all fallen from grace
Is there anyone I can show love to?
Mephibosheth was at a place with no word from God, no pasture — Lodebar.
“And the king said unto him, Where is he? And Ziba said unto the king, Behold, he is in the house of Machir, the son of Ammiel, in Lo–debar.”
2 Samuel 9:4 KJV
“He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.”
Psalms 23:2 KJV
The first word God says to any sinner who comes to Him= Do not fear.
People are naturally afraid of God with the wrong type of fear. People instinctively fear God. What they don’t understand is God’s love
“And David said unto him, Fear not: for I will surely shew thee kindness for Jonathan thy father’s sake, and will restore thee all the land of Saul thy father; and thou shalt eat bread at my table continually.”
2 Samuel 9:7 KJV
V13- still lame but still fed continually. Ur walk might not be perfect but keep feeding on God’s Word to find strength.
“And he bowed himself, and said, What is thy servant, that thou shouldest look upon such a dead dog as I am?”
2 Samuel 9:8 KJV
— all the hard thoughts he had of David, he repented of them. The kindness and goodness of God leads us to repentance. Not our repentance that melts God’s heart in kindness.
First taste of blessed supper
Forgiveness of sin is immediate. Our justification is eternal. U can’t sin our righteousness away. Not encouraging us to sin but that His righteousness is greater than our sins.
Repent means change our minds. To change the way we think.
Everyone who believes in Jesus receives remission of sin- Peter didn’t say repent but did people repent? Yes.
God grants repentance. If God doesn’t grant, we can’t work for it even.
Walking in God’s way benefits us. Our walks don’t benefit Him.
How to come to the great supper?
Believe on Him and receive the forgiveness of sins.
Not about your feelings or your doings. . Outside u. Jesus. What He did on the Cross.
Must I not be holy for God to heal me?
God doesn’t ask u to come to bring to the great supper. Come to find.
U don’t have to bring yourself. Come to receive the finished work. Come to remember Him and not yourself. It’s all about Jesus.
1 Cor 1:30
“But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:”
1 Corinthians 1:30 KJV
Christ is your righteousness. He is your wisdom. He is your holiness even! Christ is also your redemption.
Come all things are now ready. Come.
We have perfect and everlasting righteousness through Christ and so we have perfect and
everlasting justification and shalom with God. Amen.
There is nothing for you to bring, to do or to give for this supper. Just receive.
Heavenly Father thank you for this great supper. It cost you everything. Jesus is everything. Jesus rose from the dead. That is receipt of the finished work. Thank you that I will forever be justified and righteous. I receive you as my Lord and Saviour. Amen.
