Sermon note (4th svc)
Always find something good in someone and compliment
Decision making is leadership.
The first area we possess our possession is our family life.
Dare get up and say no way to taking away from us.
May the sword of the spirit and me become one.
Learn scripture verses, put them into memory
Jesus answered from scripture when He was in the wilderness.
All scripture is God’s breathe
Jesus answered the devil, IT IS WRITTEN..
Is the sword of the spirit and the devil will always get the point.
Speak it as it is! There is power there!!
Learn to speak the Word as it is written!!
2 Timothy 4:18
And the Lord will deliver me from every evil work and preserve me for His heavenly kingdom. To Him be glory forever and ever. Amen!
God’s work is sharper than any 2 edges sword
God’s laser sharp words can bring healing that the best of man cannot.
When it is impossible with man, is possible with God.
God helps those who are helpless.
We are in the season of resurrection.
The steps to the temple is exactly 15.
God does not bring u lower and lower. God brings u higher and higher.
We will go higher than before.
Blessings of Those Who Fear the Lord
A Song of Ascents.
Blessed is every one who fears the Lord,
Who walks in His ways.
When you eat the labor of your hands,
You shall be happy, and it shall be well with you.
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.
The Lord bless you out of Zion,
And may you see the good of Jerusalem
All the days of your life.
Yes, may you see your children’s children.
Peace be upon Israel!
Vine speak of grapes.
Vine makes into wines.
The place of the oil press. When Jesus was first pressed, it was dark.
2nd pressing He was beaten.
Last stage, He was pressed again at the cross and it was for cleansing.
Olive is a tree that can last for thousand of years.
If battles are coming against you, look for the spoils of war
Prosperity. Christ is in the home. Long life.
When the man is blessed, his wife is blessed.
God justify people who are blamed
Fear the Lord – how to fear Him?
If You, Lord, should mark iniquities,
O Lord, who could stand?
But there is forgiveness with You,
That You may be feared.
Grace to be grace is unmerited
There is forgiveness with you. That you may be heard.
Jesus has power to lay down His life and to take it up again.
He was not captured. He laid down His life.
When Jesus walked among the people whose hands are holding stones to stone Him, He walked among them and passed by someone who was blind from birth and He healed him.
Sin eyes become blind and blind eyes began to see.
For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.”
Relationship with God.
Parents want children to honor them and not fear them. Fear is one step away from hate.
True authority, children will follow.
A lot of super hero movie stories have gospel story!
The Hero of heroes laid down His life to save His bride.
Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.’ ”
Under law is called fear. Jesus define fear.
You shall fear the Lord your God and serve Him, and shall take oaths in His name.
The writer must define. Fear is you shall worship the Lord. Worth-ship
Value the presence of the Lord
Live life that we might know Him.
Live for the audience of One.
Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. For our God is a consuming fire.
Hold on to the peace! Possess peace with God!
Let us possess peace with God! I have peace because i am the righteousness of God in Christ!
Is not a slave fear, is a son fear. Fear – reverence
Come to Mount Zion, to the city of the Living God. Mount Zion where Jesus died, that is where grace was imparted.
Mount Zion never shakes.
The Profane Fire of Nadab and Abihu
Then Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, each took his censer and put fire in it, put incense on it, and offered profane fire before the Lord, which He had not commanded them. So fire went out from the Lord and devoured them, and they died before the Lord.
Leviticus 9:24 – 10:1
and fire came out from before the Lord and consumed the burnt offering and the fat on the altar. When all the people saw it, they shouted and fell on their faces.
The Profane Fire of Nadab and Abihu
Then Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, each took his censer and put fire in it, put incense on it, and offered profane fire before the Lord, which He had not commanded them.
Any messages or songs that r not based on the works of Jesus is strange fire.
You know why people hide their gifts and talents and use money in irresponsible way in the body of Christ?
When Jesus returns, there are different responsibility given to us.
Someone is responsible for 5 or 10 cities based on their faithfulness
Our bodies is planted natural and comes out supernatural.
Whatever we use our talents for, we will use the talent forever when we are in heaven.
Different bodies capacities.
Say the word Lord Jesus Christ instead of just God or just Jesus
The name Jesus reveal is Father. Father in heaven. Say in the spirit of sonship
Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.
Work out something that has been worked in.
Is God supplying us the willingness and the pleasure of doing it. He don’t force us.
Fear and trembling means they are awed! So cool!
But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth.
And He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.”
Then it shall be to Me a name of joy, a praise, and an honor before all nations of the earth, who shall hear all the good that I do to them; they shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and all the prosperity that I provide for it.’
Putting money in the bank is the last resort. Jesus wanna them to use money to multiply
“Then another came, saying, ‘Master, here is your mina, which I have kept put away in a handkerchief. For I feared you, because you are an austere man. You collect what you did not deposit, and reap what you did not sow.’
How i see God will affect how we use our money and effectiveness.
Wrong fear of God.
Austere man means harsh man, demanding man.
Under grace, God is supplying!
He did not use his gift.
When wrong opinion of God, one became fearful wrongly and therefore not use his gifts
Launch out into the deep.
View of the Lord will cause someone to use their gifts or not to use their gifts.
Following the Lord
Even we are on earth, our spirit must be in the heaven. He who dwell in the secret place of the Most High, (this is heaven)
Soar with eagles’ wings!
Life is a joy. Don’t wait for event than be happy.
We enjoy what we did not sow. Jesus sow for us.
because all these men who have seen My glory and the signs which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have put Me to the test now these ten times, and have not heeded My voice, they certainly shall not see the land of which I swore to their fathers, nor shall any of those who rejected Me see it. But My servant Caleb, because he has a different spirit in him and has followed Me fully, I will bring into the land where he went, and his descendants shall inherit it.
Sheep follows the Lord!
When we follow Him we will not be in want.
‘Surely none of the men who came up from Egypt, from twenty years old and above, shall see the land of which I swore to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, because they have not wholly followed Me, except Caleb the son of Jephunneh, the Kenizzite, and Joshua the son of Nun, for they have wholly followed the Lord.’
Nevertheless my brethren who went up with me made the heart of the people melt, but I wholly followed the Lord my God.
Hebron therefore became the inheritance of Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite to this day, because he wholly followed the Lord God of Israel.
The Beloved Disciple and His Book
Then Peter, turning around, saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following, who also had leaned on His breast at the supper, and said, “Lord, who is the one who betrays You?” Peter, seeing him, said to Jesus, “But Lord, what about this man?”
Jesus said to him, “If I will that he remain till I come, what is that to you? You follow Me.”
John was conscious of the Lord’s love for him and therefore he was following. He was following unconsciously. Jesus don’t need to tell John to follow. He follows unconsciously.
Peter conscious about boasting his love for Jesus, need the Lord to tell Peter to follow
Practice Jesus’ love and we follow without needing to be told
