Sermon note (4th svc)Jesus is your Wisdom!
God is inviting you to rest. To rest in Him. When you rest, He works!
If you work, He is going to rest. So you decide!
Bible tells us 365 times “Fear Not”
There is one time in New Testament, Bible tells us to fear. Fear that we are not entering into His rest. Fear we are not cool enough.
All His work is DONE. Christianity is done, not do and do. Don’t try to complete what has been completed.
Is a fight of faith. We are not trying to be healed, we are healed!
Our spirit man is eternal.
God’s supply in the invisible realm is eternal. Our healing is here.
In the Old Testament, the high priest represent you to God. The bible does not call Jesus a prophet but a High Priest.
With all the addictions and hang ups, Jesus loves you!
How many clean yourselves before taking a bath? Come to Jesus as you are and He will clean you up!!
We get saved to be a better man.
We have a high priest who lives under the power of high life.
Devil wants us to look at ourselves but Jesus wants us to look at Him.
The very area that is my greatest weakness became my strength for God’s glory! Grace is attracted to our weakness.
God’s grace cannot supply where we are strong and trust ourselves
called by God as High Priest “according to the order of Melchizedek,” of whom we have much to say, and hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing.
For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food.
Abram and Melchizedek
Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine; he was the priest of God Most High. And he blessed him and said:
“Blessed be Abram of God Most High,
Possessor of heaven and earth;
And blessed be God Most High,
Who has delivered your enemies into your hand.” And he gave him a tithe of all.
God took the cross and make it salvation for sinful man!
Discern the Lord’s body, discern His body was broken that our bodies are put back together! When we discern His body, we live long, get younger and younger!
The rich is in the tithe.
We build our house for our own children. God put silver and gold for His own children
Now the king of Sodom said to Abram, “Give me the persons, and take the goods for yourself.”
But Abram said to the king of Sodom, “I have raised my hand to the Lord, God Most High, the Possessor of heaven and earth, that I will take nothing, from a thread to a sandal strap, and that I will not take anything that is yours, lest you should say, “I have made Abram rich’—
Abram knew he just tithed and he did not want the king of Sodom to take the credit of making him rich!
God’s best-kept secret of wealth
For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches.
Holy is set apart! God wants His people to be uncommon and set apart!!
The rest is holy when we set apart 10%!
What is holy the devil cannot touch!
Now consider how great this man was, to whom even the patriarch Abraham gave a tenth of the spoils.
Abraham is the one tithing. Grace is greater than law! Grace came thru the Son. Law is temporary, grace is eternal!
Our reason for tithing is to show how great He is!
You can have no money and think of money. Is the love of money which is the root of all evil.
The reason is to show how great our Lord Jesus is!!
Here mortal men receive tithes, but there he receives them, of whom it is witnessed that he lives. Even Levi, who receives tithes, paid tithes through Abraham, so to speak, for he was still in the loins of his father when Melchizedek met him.
In heaven, Jesus is still receiving the tithe! Jesus receives. You don’t have to, Jesus receives and not take. The Lord does not need our tithes. When we rest, God works! When we let go of our problems, God works!!
Take no thoughts. Don’t worry. Be Happy.
Receive in the verse is in Present, passive participle.
Tithe releases wealth.
Gospel is not health and wealth but it produces health and wealth! The gospel is a gospel of grace and peace.
The tithe is a witness that He lives!
Communion is to proclaim His death!
The tithe is to proclaim He is alive!
Jesus came unto His own. His own rejected.
All Israel will be saved at the second coming!!
Lord Jesus has no resentment to us who put Him at the cross. He used it to draw us near to Him.
Israel still think Joseph is dead.
And they told him, saying, “Joseph is still alive, and he is governor over all the land of Egypt.” And Jacob’s heart stood still, because he did not believe them. But when they told him all the words which Joseph had said to them, and when he saw the carts which Joseph had sent to carry him, the spirit of Jacob their father revived. Then Israel said, “It is enough. Joseph my son is still alive. I will go and see him before I die.”
When he saw, he believed!
When people see, they will believe.
When he started believing, he became Israel. Before he believe he was Jacob.
When you tithe, generation blessing takes place!
When you tithe you are affecting generation!!
Jewish people only make up 0.2% of the world. However they have the best breakthru and disproportion influence!
Tithe 10% of our income and we get the benefits. We have the fullness of covenant.
Never tithe out of empty heart. You must see Jesus in front of u when u tithe. It will be witness that He lives in my life when i tithe!!
Salvation is not dependant on all these things.
Salvation righteousness we don’t need to do anything.
You sow bountifully you will lead bountifully.
How much seeds do we want to plant?
The Lord wants me to prosper! He does not need our tithe as much as we need the disproportionate influence!
Give Him Praise!!
Jesus was covered with blood at the cross. He who owns the entire universe and heaven itself became poor at the cross that we thru His poverty might be rich!!
We tithe when we don’t have to do it. Look out for disproportionate influence. Enough is selfish! God bless us more than enough so we can give to the poor in the world!!!
As He is righteous, God sees us righteous!!
