Sermon note (4th svc)
God is moving, God is restoring, He is bringing families back together.
The house of God is like God’s storage place. When God ask us for the boat, He is setting us up for blessing!
After Jesus used the boat, It never remain the same. Jesus blesses them more than they can ask or imagine.
Once the debt is cleared, whatever u sow in the ground is sowing. God’s way Is He will always out give man.
Commercialism is something God gives.
The seed we sow will multiply back!
Is vital we learn to feed the church.
God knows our needs and He will provide for us.
Lets live united.
Corn wine oil
Make wine, the longer it is the better wine it is. Jesus compressed time. He created the miracle of water into wine!
God does not believe in drunkedness
Looking at Jesus spring eternal.
Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine
In the very heart of your house,
Your children like olive plants
All around your table.
Behold, thus shall the man be blessed
Who fears the Lord.
Whoever has given up on your families, give God a chance. He is the true Vine, we are the branches. He makes us a branch. The branch has same nature as the Vine. If the Vine is healthy, so is the branch!!
Don’t try to be what God said we already are.
I have learn i am a pipe. I am not a Cistern.
Without Jesus, we can do nothing!
Which of you by worrying can add to your height?
Can you make you in the first place in your mother’s womb? You can’t even make yourself, what makes you think you can remake yourself?
Without Jesus we can do nothing!!
As a branch, He is supplying me with the sap!
He supplies us the businessman the creative thoughts!
Without Him, we can do nothing!
He produces eternal life, not us!
We will not do nothing, it does not mean outwardly do nothing.
He is the Source. Trust Him for the word, trust Him in all the things we do! The Lord Jesus speaks thru us! He is the Vine!!
God wants us family blessed!!
The Ninth Plague: Darkness
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, darkness which may even be felt.” So Moses stretched out his hand toward heaven, and there was thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days. They did not see one another; nor did anyone rise from his place for three days. But all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.
Only One Nation to God. That nation is Israel.
Church is make of both Jews and Gentiles. They are now heavenly people, God’s children!
What is meant for the church should be meant for the church. What is meant for Israel will be meant for Israel.
Everything in Matthew 24 is meant for the Jews.
Rapture and second coming is different.
Rapture He will come for us. Second coming He come to judge the world.
Jesus died for sinners.
We are like the people of Israel when darkness cover the earth.
God said individual. There is no such thing as christian nation on earth.
Get people saved!
We are accepting people to produce grape when they don’t even have sap in the vine.
Without Jesus, a sinner will be a sinner. Some are more dignified sinners.
Christians sometime do wrong, most of the time do right.
Love will hate something in you even though u love it. Because u don’t see it is hurting you
The darker it is, good advertisement for light!
The Sun is like new covenant grace!
Supernatural darkness on earth now.
All the people of God have light in their dwelling!!
Dwelling – family life!
In Egypt, the salves have light in their dwelling
Supernatural darkness can only be answered by supernatural light.
God is saying man woman husband wives father grandparents there shall be light in your dwelling!!
Darkness is just laying the background for the family to shine.
Branch part is just to bear grapes, not produce grapes! Is the Vine sap that flows in the branch that produces the fruit. Don’t try to be Vine. Without us He will not do anything
For a christian our effort is a mistake. We cannot produce or maintain spiritual life, we cannot make our own heartbeat!
The sap wanna flow! All we need to do is let go!
Let go complete! When we let go we know who is the Source!
Vine is the Source. We are the branch ! Rest!
Rest in Jesus!
Lord Jesus is in me, He will handle all the stress and fear! He will supply the favor!
He is bringing light into our dwelling
God makes His people shine!
When David came against Goliath, he was thinking spiritual, covenant
Medical science is now desperate.
Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.
We cannot see unless God makes me see!
When you light a lamp, don’t cover it by making it too commercialise. Don’t cover ourselves as believers
The Parable of the Revealed Light
“No one, when he has lit a lamp, covers it with a vessel or puts it under a bed, but sets it on a lampstand, that those who enter may see the light.
Don’t hide our lamp under laziness.
Those who enter may see the light. Those coming in our house will see the light. Sense the presence. Not natural light.
When people come to our house can sense the atmosphere of the Lord.
Wherever we are we push back the darkness.
We are balls of light! We push back the darkness wherever we are! We can’t see the light, the devil can.
Darkness was the 9th plague.
Rebuke all pain and send them away! Don’t just submit to the pain by just taking medicine. If u r on medication, continue, and God has better way
Rebuke the pain the fever and speak to it to get out of the body in Jesus’ name!
And Moses said, “We will go with our young and our old; with our sons and our daughters, with our flocks and our herds we will go, for we must hold a feast to the Lord.”
Then he said to them, “The Lord had better be with you when I let you and your little ones go! Beware, for evil is ahead of you. Not so! Go now, you who are men, and serve the Lord, for that is what you desired.” And they were driven out from Pharaoh’s presence.
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand over the land of Egypt for the locusts, that they may come upon the land of Egypt, and eat every herb of the land—all that the hail has left.”
God wants light in my dwelling!
In His light we see light!
Don’t leave your children in the Egypt.
Bring them to church!!
Because we go, we hear something otherwise we would not have heard. Is just one word, not entire sermon, could have touched you
Christ is in the crisis.
Don’t need to say who you are. Once you say who you are, the game is over.
Small crisis is more important than major crisis.
If money is your master u will be a poor man with plenty of money.
Don’t over priorities studies for your children.
God always cause us to triumph in Christ!
When you don’t listen to God, you go down.
Jonah was in the belly of whale 3 days 3 nights.
He was “vomited out”
Jonah went to the mountain and said repent or in 3 days u will be overthrown. The shortest sermon.
Jonah’s Anger and God’s Kindness
But it displeased Jonah exceedingly, and he became angry. So he prayed to the Lord, and said, “Ah, Lord, was not this what I said when I was still in my country? Therefore I fled previously to Tarshish; for I know that You are a gracious and merciful God, slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness, One who relents from doing harm. Therefore now, O Lord, please take my life from me, for it is better for me to die than to live!”
Then the Lord said, “Is it right for you to be angry?”
So Jonah went out of the city and sat on the east side of the city. There he made himself a shelter and sat under it in the shade, till he might see what would become of the city.
Jonah is from Galilee.
He did not want to go because he knew God’s nature. He knew God is gracious and merciful
See the heart of your God!
Whoever believes is safe! Not universalism safe
God is also a judge. This judge is love.
Then God said to Jonah, “Is it right for you to be angry about the plant?”
And he said, “It is right for me to be angry, even to death!”
But the Lord said, “You have had pity on the plant for which you have not labored, nor made it grow, which came up in a night and perished in a night. And should I not pity Nineveh, that great city, in which are more than one hundred and twenty thousand persons who cannot discern between their right hand and their left—and much livestock?”
See the heart of God
We will be out before the judgement comes!
Shall the prey be taken from the mighty,
Or the captives of the righteous be delivered?
But thus says the Lord:
“Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, (released)
And the prey of the terrible be delivered;
For I will contend with him who contends with you,
And I will save your children.
God will fight your enemies against you and save your children!
