Sermon Notes – 3rd Aug (1st svc)
The first sermon of this year, and Pastor Prince mentioned it specifically to put our eyes on Israel. God wants us to pray for them. They are not blood thirsty or blood guilty. Israel is one of the most civilized army.
Bible prophesy tells us that the whole world will turn against Israel in the last days. Russia will raise again.
The whole is getting to become chaotic place. Pastor Prince prayed Psalm 91 over us!
God promised there is a place in Him that we should not be afraid of terror by night! No plague will come near us!
Our mortal body will put on incorruptible body.
And in that day I will set apart the land of Goshen, in which My people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there, in order that you may know that I am the Lord in the midst of the land. I will make a difference between My people and your people. Tomorrow this sign shall be.” ’” And the Lord did so. Thick swarms of flies came into the house of Pharaoh, into his servants’ houses, and into all the land of Egypt. The land was corrupted because of the swarms of flies.
In the world, there is a supernatural hatred towards Israel.
God shows His grace by picking people who are weak and show His grace!
Goshen – draw near
Don’t fear the things the people of the world fear.
Flies represent evil spirit.
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.
Light in their dwellings!! This light is supernatural light!! 🙂
In this last days, there is supernatural light in my dwellings! (Dwellings mean family)
There is light in my dwelling!!
How can a woman be secured to give herself totally to a man without marriage covenant?
God makes a difference between His people and others!
When rapture comes and we go up,
God will raise 144 thousands Jewish evangelists!
12 thousands from each tribe!
Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, saying, “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.” And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty- four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed:
Seal – this seal protected them from the harm!!
In principle there is a seal on our heads!!
The Lamb and the 144,000
Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty- four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads.
Seal – Father’s name on our foreheads!! Is on our head, we can’t see it, but the spirit realm can see it!
Anything we can see and touch is temporal.
Having the Father’s name on our foreheads means we are thinking of Jesus!! God wants us to be vertical in our mind.
At the name of Jesus, every knee shall bow!
If we bow to the name of Jesus, we are saved! But if people don’t bow now, they still have to bow when they are in hell.
Jesus’ presence is life!!!
We are in the presence of life and resurrection!!
Protection is in God’s heart!
Safety of Abiding in the Presence of God
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “ He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.”
Most high – Elyon
Almighty – Shaddai
Lord – Yahweh
my God – Elohim
We will rule over the earth and the beast!
Jesus ruled the fish of the sea!
God is a merciful God!
Supreme in position – Elyon
Absolute in power – Shaddai
He can remove the breath of somebody and they are gone! God does not do that! God is a merciful God!
He is on our side. He is our God!
What a place of rest and comfort we have!
God wants our family protected and blessed.
Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler
And from the perilous pestilence.
He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge;
His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
God is in a protection business! He protect us in the past, now and in future
Pestilence is disease. Diseases developed in the body and they don’t know. We are protected by God from pestilence!
Good shepherd gives his life for the shepherd!!
A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.
Millions died prematurely and suffered ~ those who smoke. And devil will point us to those who did not die prematurely.
We do not know what so and so believe who died prematurely. We cannot speak for others.
A thousand may fall at your side and 10 thousand at right hand, it shall not come near me!!
Power of confession and power of words!
No one must touch other cases who fell. Remember Jesus protects us!!
This lady became a believer. She was repeatedly diagnosed with cancer.
She saw Pastor Prince sermon and began ordering his sermons.
She understands total forgiveness now!
She is no longer condemned. She has intimate relationship with Jesus! She is now 56 years old and now cancer-free!
We are not like the people of the world. The disease has expiry date! Came to the wrong body!
Fear comes when we stop looking vertically and start looking horizontally.
Steven was stoned. He fixed his eyes on heaven and saw Jesus!! He became like Jesus. He said Lord forgive them of all these sins. He did not die because of stoning. He committed his spirit and left. He chose to.
Paul did not die from stoning. He walked up and walked to the city and preach again.
We are like Him and because we have made the Lord as my refuge, there shall no evil before me nor any plague.
We made the Lord who is my Refuge and most High my dwelling place!
Lord’s supper which keeps me healthy and
Tithing keeps us wealthy.
Faith comes by hearing and hearing of the word of God!
People hear from a preacher!
Money is effective to be used for people to save them.
Love your neighbour, not neighbours. Whoever we can make a difference in our lives, do it!
It is easier for my parents to be saved because we are saved 😉
For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.
The devil cannot quote scripture completely.
He shall give His angels charge over me, to keep me in all my ways. Ways Is Derek – path, road, journey.
It is about our daily journey. Is a path. We are walking and we did not see a stone and God lifted us up.
The Lord goes ahead of us and makes our ways straight!!
Trample – is about walking!
“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him and honor him.
set his love upon Me – cling on with passion!
set him on high is very high because He has known My Name!
Know the name of God! Know THE Name!!
God is talking here-
He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him. I will be with him in trouble; i will deliver him and honor him.
Deliver means the report is going to change!
Faith is the substance of things hoped for. If there is nothing to hope for, there is no substance.
Aim for the star and you will hit the moon! Don’t point to people who did not get healed.
When God honors me, He makes me weighty!! You step into a room, the room lights up!
Why give them my weight? Don’t focus on the criticism and give them weight.
With long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My salvation.”
It is our satisfaction, not God’s satisfaction!
My salvation – Yeshua
The name of God opening and ending!
Live long but good life!! 😉
Purpose of good life to show him my Yeshua.
Simeon Sees God’s Salvation
And behold, there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon, and this man was just and devout, waiting for the Consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. So he came by the Spirit into the temple. And when the parents brought in the Child Jesus, to do for Him according to the custom of the law, he took Him up in his arms and blessed God and said:
“Lord, now You are letting Your servant depart in peace,
According to Your word;
For my eyes have seen Your salvation
Which You have prepared before the face of all peoples,
A light to bring revelation to the Gentiles,
And the glory of Your people Israel.”
See Christ in the pages of the bible!
For all our days have passed away in Your wrath;
We finish our years like a sigh.
The days of our lives are seventy years;
And if by reason of strength they are eighty years,
Yet their boast is only labor and sorrow;
For it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
Who knows the power of Your anger?
For as the fear of You, so is Your wrath.
A lot of people said is normal to live to 70 and 80, but they are those under God’s wrath.
We don’t allow human experience to bring God’s word down!
We are saved from God’s wrath!!
Peter and Paul know what they will be growing through.
quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, became valiant in battle, turned to flight the armies of the aliens. Women received their dead raised to life again.
Others were tortured, not accepting deliverance, that they might obtain a better resurrection.
Was deliverance offered to them?
Redemption of Jesus Christ!
Not accept deliverance – means there was deliverance offered.
Deliverance is redemption.
Paul and Peter did not accept deliverance.
For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain. But if I live on in the flesh, this will mean fruit from my labor; yet what I shall choose I cannot tell. For I am hard- pressed between the two, having a desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better. Nevertheless to remain in the flesh is more needful for you. And being confident of this, I know that I shall remain and continue with you all for your progress and joy of faith,
To die is gain. Depart and be with Christ is far better for him but to remain in the flesh is more needful for them. He has power over death.
How satisfied are you? The power of your tongue. How satisfied are you to live in the earth ? It is in our hands, God is going by our satisfaction!!
Look at God’s word and stick with God’s word!!
2 Timothy 4:6-7
For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
Paul has finished the race and kept the faith ready to go.
Power of life and death is in the tongue!!!!
Faith comes out of pure conscience.
Come out higher to where we are integrated!!
The Lord is my Shepherd, i shall not be in want!!!
It is time to be prosper as a church!!
The people prosper! The people must prosper!!
There is no inconsistency with the bible.
Thieves and robbery of the word.
Some salaried pastors – when wolves come, they just left with no passion for the sheep.
