Sermon Note (3rd svc)The world is going darker but God will shine on His people. The world is changing. The One that is coming for us is going to set the world right.
Last week we celebrate His birth. He is no longer a baby. He is the Messiah!
He grew up, open the eyes of the blind, He is going to return and set everything right.
All Science confirm the Scripture. God hangs the earth upon nothing. We don’t have to heal our body, our body heal itself.
Jesus had a choice on which family to be born. He existed before Mary even existed. David live physically before Christ. Yet Jesus said He is the root of David. That is His deity. He is fully God and fully Man.
The world focus is back to Israel.
God sent His Son to the tiny city.
God deals with the Jews, the Gentiles and the church.
Anyone who is not a Jews is a Gentiles. If they are born again in Christ, the organisation is the church.
God thought of church.
A lot of things money cannot buy. Money is a tool. Jesus talk about money more than anything else.
Trained by Saving Grace
For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ,
Salvation is a Person. Jesus came to the house. It was not sent from afar. The law was given but grace and truth came.
The grace will teach. Our church preach and teach grace and grace will teach them. When they experience grace, they are transformed from within.
Condemnation will cause people to repeat addiction.
All your sins were future when Jesus died (unless u r 2000 years old)
U cannot be under water and not be wet.
The same Jesus u see go up, will like manner come back.
Hope is positive expectation of good.
Hope is always future. A happy hope.
There is a Man in glory today. His name is Jesus.
For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself.
Jesus spent 94 verses talking about His coming!
Occupied till He comes. Meaning continue do our businesses and live till He comes.
Our citizenship is in heaven!!
Paul, the apostle of grace, spoke about His coming more than anyone else.
There are 27 books in the New Testament and out of 27 chapters, 23 chapters talk about the second coming of Christ.
That is 1 out of 30 verses!
We are people of heaven! We are higher than people who wanna fight. We forgive and trust God with our results.
17 books in the Old Testament talk about the 2nd coming of Christ!
We eagerly waiting for the Lord Jesus! He will transform our lowly body. God renew our youth like the eagle!!
Our body cannot take heaven. Heaven is so beautiful! God has to give us a new body. For believers there are no more death. God created man not to die.
Growth is part of using the choice. Jesus came down and die for us.
To create God has to speak.
To redeem God has to bleed.
Jesus conquered death for man and to rope us in into His victory!
A ghost does not have flesh and bones Jesus has. In heaven is physical. We can touch each other and shake hands.
First thing happen is when our bodies are transformed when the second coming of Christ.
Our body change first.
1 Corinthians 15:51-56
Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”
“O Death, where is your sting?
O Hades, where is your victory?”
The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law.
We shall not all sleep. We shall all be changed. It does not say we, who are faithful. It says we!
Those who has died in Christ will raise first.
We are not going to heaven with this body.
Jesus conquered death. He did not die because He was murdered. He laid down His life for us.
Fully Man without any of the fallen trait. He never have to retrace a step. Full of compassion, full of power!
Out of the abundance of heart, the heart speaks.
We love the sea, God created the sea.
Whatever it is, it will be greater than what we have today.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
The Comfort of Christ’s Coming
But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.
For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.
Don’t let the world sell u their fear.
Alive and Remain shall be caught up together.
Focus on the bible, the word of God.
Faith, Hope and Love
2 Thessalonians 2:1-4
The Great Apostasy
Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
but they have been informed about you that you teach all the Jews who are among the Gentiles to forsake Moses, saying that they ought not to circumcise their children nor to walk according to the customs.
Falling away – Apostasia
Apostasia is departing
When man invented the printing press, the first book they printed was bible!
The Way, the Truth, and the Life
“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.
Moses is a type of Christ. He went up to the mountain and delayed coming down.
Everyone has hope, purify himself.
What is your goal? What will make you happy?
We are setting the course for the year 2016.
Everything on this earth, the more we are conscious, the better we will be.
