THE POWER OF RIGHT BELIEVING
2013-04-21_NCC Sermon Sunday Service
Highlights on New Creation Church Sunday Morning 8:30 am Service – 21 April 2013
– Pastor Prince
Pastor will be preaching this sermon that he has preached before and this has set many people free down through the years. The testimonies that have come back have been tremendous especially in the area of addiction, bondage, depression, unclean habits, etc.
This freedom does not come from will power but freedom that is true from within. There is no more desire from that bondage.
Every time we see Jesus, grace and peace have been brought to us.
2 Peter 1:2 (NKJV)
2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord,
We all want grace and peace.
Grace is favor of God in your life. You may not understand why you are at the right place and at the right time when a tragedy strike except for the grace of God. You don’t understand why you being new in your job get all the favor from someone who has been there for 30 years. This is called the favor of God. The only explanation is the favor of God.
It is not by your effort but all by the grace of God. It is the unearned, unmerited, and underserved favor of God.
There are many people trying to redefine grace. It is like a cloak trying to cover up the human works or human performance again. They try to introduce the law under the guise of grace.
If it is by your performance, it is no more of grace. Grace is the unearned, underserved, and unmerited favor of God.
Peace is Eirene in Greek or Shalom in Hebrew. Peace is not just peace of mind but well-being in the Hebrew.
The Amplified Bible explains peace better.
2 Peter 1:2 (AMP)
2 May grace (God’s favor) and peace (which is perfect well-being, all necessary good, all spiritual prosperity, and freedom from fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts) be multiplied to you in [the full, personal, precise, and correct] knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.
Peace is the perfect well-being. If your body is plagued with pain, it is not in perfect well-being. It is God’s desire for your body to have perfect well-being.
How many want this peace increase? We loved God’s favor to be multiplied.
What can we do? It is not what you do but what you see or whom you see.
Every time you come to church, it is knowing how Jesus loves you that will help you to love your wife. If you have problem loving your wife, look at how Jesus love you. Your problem is understanding or receiving the love of Jesus. The more you listen to sermons on Jesus, the more you will know how to love your wife. When you see Jesus, you can pray “Lord Jesus, I am submitting unto you” in my husband.
Submission does not mean inferiority.
Jesus increase in wisdom and stature and have favor with God and men. The Son of God who at 12 years old knew the scriptures better than the Pharisees and all the doctors of the law, submitted Himself to His earthly parents.
Submission is not submitting to your superior if only they are smarter than you or more qualified than you.
Esther submitted to the eunuch about what to wear. She wears what the eunuch proposed. The other ladies chose what they like. The next verse said Esther obtained favor.
There is something about the accurate knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. We must hear Jesus of the bible and not from elsewhere.
The Jesus of the bible can appear in the upper room when the disciples were all fearful. The disciples were hiding because they were afraid of the Jews. Jesus showed them His sides and His hands and told them not to be afraid.
Today we hear of preaching that unless we confess our sins, Jesus will not deal with you or talk to you.
Being fearful is the first group that goes into the lake of fire. The second group is the unbelieving. If you confess your sins, you need to confess your fears all the time. Fear is a sin. Whatever is not of faith is sin.
If one sin unconfessed can put you out of fellowship with God, then you are always out of fellowship.
Jesus is able to be with Peter even when he has resentment against Matthew. Matthew was not well received at first because he was a tax collector. All that Peter gain has to give to the tax collector.
The bible said the multiples touched Jesus and all were healed. When the goodness of God comes into the body, this goodness leads the people to repentance.
Romans 16:25-26 (NKJV)
25 Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery kept secret since the world began 26 but now made manifest, and by the prophetic Scriptures made known to all nations, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, for obedience to the faith—
Verse 25: Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery kept secret since the world began
The gospel will always have the centrality of Jesus Christ, the preaching of Jesus Christ.
In the Old Testament, the mystery of Christ was kept a secret. We can only see Jesus within the shadows.
God has a secret and it is the goodness of God.
To say that God only justify those who are good is to bypass the cross. That is the gospel being preached today.
V26: but now made manifest, and by the prophetic Scriptures made known to all nations, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, for obedience to the faith—
God commanded that this will no more be a secret. This is God’s command. This is obedience to the faith. This is right believing.
This is not the obedience to the Old Testament and the Law.
It is now about right living and right believing. Obedience to the faith is right believing.
Obedience under law is the root for the blessing. Under grace, in the New Testament, it is the fruit of the blessing.
The bible did not say that those who are unworthy cannot take the Lord’s Supper. The bible says those who partake unworthily in the manner of partaking the Communion falls sick.
We are not to partake in an unworthy manner of the Lord’s Supper. We are not to partake not remembering what Jesus did.
God gave communion to offset that bodily condition.
Justification by faith is now forgotten. The doctrine is now forgotten today.
Do you feel God will not answer your prayer when you disobey?
Do your feel your obedience that makes you righteous?
People who are legalist will become either proud when they obey or they are depressed and felt condemned.
We are to live focusing on the obedience of Christ.
Romans 5:19 (NKJV)
19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.
That one man is referring to Adam. One man’ disobedience make us unrighteous. It is also by one man’s obedience, that we were made righteous.
Whose obedience makes us righteous? – Jesus. Jesus obedience makes us righteous.
Obedience is the fruit of a relationship. We don’t think of obedience.
It is Jesus obedience that makes you righteous. Our focus should be on Jesus obedience.
There is a battle for your mind. Long before the devil gets your body, he gets your mind.
When you think of unhealthy thoughts, it will breed unhealthy habits. It will cause your body to be affected.
Worship is a time when God’s perfumed fills the house.
Jesus is the fragrance. We are a sweet fragrance. This fragrance will drive away evil spirits, serpents, scorpions, etc.
It is not possible to confess every sin.
Pastor, when young, believes that we must confess every sin. He wanted to have constant fellowship with God. Pastor is so sincere about obedience. Pastor wanted God’s favor and wanted to be right with God. This is because of not knowing that Jesus obedience has made us righteous.
It is because of Jesus obedience that makes us righteous.
People try to be obedient but turn out to become disobedience especially in the area of thoughts.
People who always confess their sins may end up being proud. They will feel that they are better as they confessed their sins all the time.
People who do that did not give a good testimony of Jesus, there is no joy. There is no smile.
Knowing that your sins are forgiven past, present, and future will set you free.
The gospel of grace has made Pastor mind’s sound. It is the battle of your mind.
Changing of mind is repentance. Every time people come to church, there is repentance.
There is a warfare going on. The mind that is under attack cannot focus on anything. A fearful and stressful mind is also being attacked.
The mind that is filled with filth and blasphemy is also under attack.
The moment you are not sure in your walk with God and not sure that all your sins have been forgiven; all kinds of thoughts come and enter your mind. You do not know where these blasphemous thoughts are coming from.
The bible said the gospel is the power of God unto salvation. Salvation is Soteria in Greek and that means soundness, well-being, wholeness, preservation, and deliverance.
If you are reading the bible and you don’t believe the gospel or have not heard the true gospel, there is no power for your Soteria.
Jesus delivered one man who had 6000 demons in him. When Jesus commanded the demons to go, they all go away. The man was earlier crying and cutting himself. Dead people like to be with dead things. This is a sign of demonic activity. Jesus travelled the entire lake just for that young man. The devil started the storm to prevent Jesus from going to the man.
When the man was delivered, he sat at Jesus feet. He was naked when he was demon possessed. This is also a demonic activity. This man was in his right mind.
2 Corinthians 10:4-5 (NKJV)
4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,
The stronghold is in the mind.
What is the obedience of Christ?
“To the obedience of Christ” – means by one man obedience. We are to live that, breathe that, think of that, meditate on that, sing about that, and we are to think of that the moment we wake up.
Every time we wake up, we must think that it is by Jesus obedience that we are saved.
Our own obedience does not make us righteous. Our disobedience does not make us unrighteous.
The obedience is the fruit of focusing on His obedience which is a root.
The devil does not want us to think of Jesus obedience. The devil wants you to look at you, your efforts, your performance, your thoughts, etc. The devil wants to put you down.
The Holy Spirit is always endeavoring you to look away from self to His obedience.
2 Corinthians 10:5 (AMP)
5 [Inasmuch as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One),
All your thoughts must be of Jesus obedience. This is not about our obedience.
Graces flows on the wavelength of no condemnation. Grace comes on the channel of forgiveness of sins. If you are conscious of sins, you are not conscious of forgiveness of sins.
Why are people so defensive when you point out their mistake?
People take correction as condemnation. People are adverse to correction.
People think that people love them because of their right action.
We are very defensive because the gospel affects every area of our lives.
When we open the bible, we need to see how forgiven we are. When we read the Old Testament now, we see Christ.
Pastor, before he preached the gospel of grace, wanted to know if there are any ministers out there who are like him.
Pastor read an autobiography of John Bunyan “Abounding Grace for the Chief of Sinners”. Pastor found his experiences to be similar.
The assurance of God constant presence and help is not there if you are looking at your own works.
We cannot undo our righteousness because Jesus is now in heaven. The devil cannot go to heaven and remove Jesus from His place of enthronement. The devil cannot go back to heaven because Jesus has cleansed the tabernacle in heaven. The place belongs to Adam but because he sinned, he gave the place to the devil. Satan use that place to accuse people. Jesus blood has now cleansed and redeemed that place.
It is not true, that when you sin, the devil goes to heaven and accuses you. That spot is no more that as Jesus has cleansed that place.
The devil does not play fair. The devil does not come to you with a pitch fork and red underwear.
The devil does the mind game by using the personal pronoun – “I am a loser, I am depressed, I am a sickly person, I am an addict, I am a pervert.” The moment you accepted the “I”, the devil has got you. You may become the person that you thought.
When you are with people who use profanity, you are not responsible for their thought. The devil might accuse you.
You are to bring your thoughts to the obedience of Christ. Your mind is the battle arena.
We are to read more books and hear more sermons that point us to Jesus.
People today have the advantage to listen to sermons.
We are to have more faith in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Your thoughts may be about worry and not about filthy thoughts. These are stressful thoughts. Jesus said why we think of such thoughts. The devil does not like to be ignored. He wants to be that focus. We are to pay attention to Jesus and not the devil.
We are to ignore the devil tricks.
The devil wants you to focus on you. That is worst when you are trying to do something holy. We are trying to do something holy, but we may see our intend is bad.
Luck is unstable, favor is sure.
There is an elevating power by looking at Jesus.
When Peter look at Jesus, he is above the storm and walks on water, when he turn his head, he begins to sink.
You cannot be your own savior. You become the Holy Spirit looking out for your own sin.
The devil does not want you to hear what you are hearing.
What is this stressful thought?
Adam ate bread before he fell. There was no sweat, there was no stress, and there was no self-effort, not laborious work. After Adam sinned, his sweat is the result and effect of the sin and not his bread.
People are sweating to earn their millions. They become short tempered. Many families are quarreling because of stress.
We are to look beyond the issue. Jesus paid the price for your disobedience.
Luke 22:44 (AMP)
44 And being in an agony [of mind], He prayed [all the] more earnestly and intently, and His sweat became like great clots of blood dropping down upon the ground.
Jesus sweats blood. Under extreme stress the blood vessel burst and mixed with water. Jesus sweat blood and it fell to the ground.
God told Adam, curse is the ground.
Jesus redeems us from all self-effort. Every ground that we walk is favored ground.
In the Old Testament, the priest cannot wear anything that causes sweat. Sweat is a picture of the curse.
Fear is not the greater root. Deeper than fear is stress. Deeper than stress is condemnation.
1 John 4:17 (NKJV)
17 Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.
As Jesus is so are we in this world.
When taking the communion at home, we can say as Jesus is free from stress, so am I. Jesus is at the Father right hand, so are we in this world.
Jesus does not look like the high priest. Everything outward of the high priest is true of Jesus representing us. Everything outward is true of Jesus inward at the Father’s right hand.
The names of the 12 tribes are represented on the shoulder which is a place of strength and also represented on the breast which is a place of love. Jesus carried the lost sheep on his shoulder. The names are engraved on the stones.
We today are like the 12 tribes. We are upheld by The Lord.
The precious stones are on the breast place.
Jesus loves all of us individually and in His special way.
We are all loved equally in Jesus.
Jesus light shines on the precious stones of the breastplate.
Every time we come to God in prayer, the light shines in us and reflect His glory.
The devil wants to show how dirty you are. The devil wants you to think that you are a hypocrite.
We are to look away from ourselves. We are to not to be surprise that our flesh brings up these things.
Exodus 28:36-38 (NKJV)
36 “You shall also make a plate of pure gold and engrave on it, like the engraving of a signet:
HOLINESS TO THE LORD.
37 And you shall put it on a blue cord, that it may be on the turban; it shall be on the front of the turban. 38 So it shall be on Aaron’s forehead, that Aaron may bear the iniquity of the holy things which the children of Israel hallow in all their holy gifts; and it shall always be on his forehead, that they may be accepted before the Lord.
Our names are engraved on the precious stones so that it cannot be removed.
Your names are written since the foundation of the world. It will be removed if you don’t believe on. Once you are saved, you are saved forever.
Verse 37: And you shall put it on a blue cord, that it may be on the turban; it shall be on the front of the turban.
Verse 38: So it shall be on Aaron’s forehead, that Aaron may bear the iniquity of the holy things which the children of Israel hallow in all their holy gifts; and it shall always be on his forehead, that they may be accepted before the Lord.
As long as the high priest thoughts are holy, the people are accepted. God is no more judging you based on you.
God is no more judging you base on you. God has imputed His holy thoughts to your account.
In our best sayings and doing, we still find fault in our self.
Even in our most holy moments, we still have bad thoughts. The high priest bears up all these.
Accepted in verse 38 is the word Ratzon in Hebrew which is favor.
It is not my thoughts that give me favor. It is Jesus thought. As long as His thoughts are holy, you are accepted.
Jesus thoughts are holy then you are accepted.
God raised more ministers and leaders all over the world to point people to Jesus. The devil is pointing people’s thought to themselves.
The High Priest is in heaven not to represent Himself but to represent us.
Jesus is always with the father.
In Israel when the high priest is accepted, the whole nation is accepted. If the high priest dies, God has rejected the high priest and the nation.
In the opening gospel of Luke, the high priest appears dumb as he came out. He got nothing to say and cannot bless the people. He was made dumb because he doubted and did not believe the message of grace. The priest son is to be named as John which is grace. His mouth was open when he wrote on a tablet the name of his John. The last chapter of Luke ends with Jesus, our true Priest being lifted up to heaven with His hands outstretched and blessing the people.
This is all about Jesus. When we go to work we pray “Lord Jesus You are my wisdom. You are my favor.”
When you did something wrong, go back and snap back to His obedience and pray “Lord, I thank you, as You are so am I in this world. As You are favored, as angels surrounds You, I thank you that my business is not without help.”
Whatever the need is, “Lord Jesus, as You are so am I in this world. As You are a loving husband to Your bride, so am I to my wife.” Don’t try to be loving. Just look at Jesus and enjoy Him and you will end up loving your wife as Christ love the church.
Pastor Prince’s prayer of blessings over the congregation before end of 1st service:
The Lord bless you and your family with the blessings of Abraham and the blessing of Deuteronomy 28. And the Lord keep you, protect you and your loved ones throughout this entire week from that H7N9 virus, from every dengue mosquitoes, from every disease, from every sickness, from all dangers, from all accidents, from all the powers of darkness and from the power of the evil one through His own shed blood.
The Lord make His face shine on you and be favorable to you. As His thoughts are so are you favored before God.
The Lord lift up His countenance on every one of you and grant to you and your family His wonderful Shalom, health and perfect well-being, peace, and security.
In Jesus name, Amen!!!
< Begin Quote from Evelyn Zoe>
Behold Jesus, grace multiplied!
Justification by faith!
There is something powerful about the gospel.
It is the power of God unto our salvation. Salvation is soundness, wellness, well-being. The power of God is the Gospel.
The challenge we have is we are not hearing the gospel Paul preached. Paul was been attacked for the gospel he preached.
It is preservation, wholeness health for the life we live in the earth.
In this gospel is the righteousness of God revealed.
Justification by faith! This is the gospel. This is not new to the world and to Paul when he preached that.
Don’t preach another Jesus.
Fear and unbelief is sin. The 1st 2 are the fearful and unbelieving in revelation that went into the fire.
Jesus appeared in the midst.
Fear is sin, yet Jesus appeared in their midst and showed them peace.
It is not as what some people who preached that when u r in sin, Jesus goes away.
A tax collector is like someone who betrayed his nation at that time. When Jesus called Mathew, he left everything and followed Him.
Jesus has come to be with us and never leave us nor forsake us!!
How do u hear God?
When Cain murdered his brother, God talked to Cain! The lamb’s blood was shed. Cain brought bloodless sacrifice. He believed in his own effort. The first murder was over religion effort.
People who focus on their own effort are like Cain.
It is all by grace we received!
Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery kept secret since the world began but now made manifest, and by the prophetic Scriptures made known to all nations, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, for obedience to the faith—
Paul preached the gospel and he was misunderstood that Paul said let us sin more so that grace may abound.
Sin increasing and grace superabound!!!
Have more faith in what Christ has done than what Adam did.
God commanded that this gospel be revealed to all nation!!
Obedience is the root for all the blessings. God blesses us first and the fruit is obedient.
He never separate us according to our sins and make us get right before He will pray for us.
We are not righteous by performance we are righteous by what Christ has done!
Believe right and we will live right.
The righteous shall live by faith.
For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.
We sin because we are sinners. We are sinners because of Adam’s sin.
By one Man’s obedience, many will be made righteous!
Be focus on Jesus’ obedience!!! Don’t focus on our own obedience. Take our eyes off ourselves. It is not about me but about Jesus!!!
It is One Man’s obedience! We can always focus on His obedience.
We will not think of supplying Jesus but Jesus supplying us! When Jesus supply us, we have the power to supply.
The greatest teaching on worship is in John 4
A fallen woman, Jesus revealed the teaching of worship!
Jesus revealed Himself as Messiah!
Just a moment with Jesus and we are lifted out of ourselves!
A sinner has come and taken from Jesus and Jesus was refreshed and got stronger! He had food to eat we do not know of.
2 Corinthians 10:4-5
For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,
Devil wants us to take our minds away from our obedience.
We can bring our thoughts to Jesus’ obedience!!
If focus is on us, it is never enough!
Jesus don’t say” you are”…but used “I am…”
Don’t receive bad thoughts when it comes into our mind.
Don’t accept bad thoughts. Bad thoughts are not our thoughts.
The highest form of resistant is to ignore the devil.
Don’t focus on devil and keep rebuking him. Rebel against the devil!
Look away from ourselves, look to Jesus!!
Forgiveness of sin is the key!
Check Jesus out! We are all in Christ the sweet fragrance!!
Abounding grace to chief of sinners – a book title
The battle is in your mind.
Jesus was crucified at a place called Skull
1 John 4:17
The Consummation of Love
Love has been perfected among us in this:that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.
As He is so are we in this world! As He is healthy, so are we! We are transformed by beholding and not struggling!!
Beholding the glory of Jesus!! The way to have more grace in our lives is not to do more, but to behold Jesus and know more of Jesus!!! Perfect well-being! Multiplied by seeing Jesus more!!!
When Peter looked at Jesus, he became like who Jesus was, walking on water, supernatural. But when his eyes are away from Jesus, he fell.
Look to Jesus and holy spirit goes to work for us!
Look away from our problems and look to Jesus!!
As the high priest goes, so goes to the nation of Israel.
High priest represent the people. He goes to the holy of holies. If God accepts him, he comes out alive and the nation of Israel is prosperous! If the high priest does not come out, the nation is in trouble.
It is not how good the nation is, but how good Jesus is!!
Everything outward is visual aid for us on High Priest
Shoulder represent strength. When the shepherd found the lost sheep, he will find that one. He put it on his shoulder. We just have to rest on his strong shoulder. The sheep just rest. The shepherd did everything.
Repent means we consent to be carried, consent for Jesus to do everything for us.
Jesus has us in His heart.
Our names are engraved in the breastplate of high priest. It is engraved and not erased.
Everyone’s name are there, but when they come to the end of their life and do not receive Christ, then their names are blocked. It is not true for those already received Christ. Once received, forever saved!
Everyone of us are unique in our own way! God loves u individually!!
Jesus holds us as precious stones in Him! When stones are exposed to the light, the light shines on it and reflect His glory. The light of God shows how perfectly Jesus has removed our sins!
Holiness to the Lord! This is in hebrew on the high priest forehead.
“You shall also make a plate of pure gold and engrave on it, like the engraving of a signet:
HOLINESS TO THE LORD.
And you shall put it on a blue cord, that it may be on the turban; it shall be on the front of the turban. So it shall be on Aaron’s forehead, that Aaron may bear the iniquity of the holy things which the children of Israel hallow in all their holy gifts; and
it shall always be on his forehead, that they may be accepted before the Lord.
God is not accepting me based on my thoughts, but accepting me based on the High Priest’ thoughts!
We are accepted because of Jesus’ thoughts!
As He is, so are we in this world!!!
We are struggling with our future’s thoughts. Sweat is a picture of stress, self-effort.
And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
Extreme stress-sweat became blood.
Redeeming quality, we are been redeemed! The blood fell to the ground. Everywhere we go are favour ground!
Where i step is favour ground!!
In our holy gifts, there are still iniquity . The devil will come in and catch u for the thoughts. No! Look away! Jesus our High Priest takes care of this! As long as His thoughts are holy, God impute that into our accounts! He accessed us base on Jesus’ thoughts.
Accepted means favour!! (Ratzon-Favour)
So it shall be on Aaron’s forehead, that Aaron may bear the iniquity of the holy things which the children of Israel hallow in all their holy gifts; and it shall always be on his forehead, that they may be accepted (ratzon-favour) before the Lord.
Every which way we turn Jesus we see glory!
He is altogether lovely!! There is a Hero above all! Jesus cannot disappoint us!
As He is, so are we in this world!!!
< End Quote from Evelyn Zoe >
Not ashamed of gospel because the dunamis of God unto our sotaria (soundness and health and wholeness and preservation and well-being)- Greek for salvation.
Gospel is the power of God. Paul preached grace and wasn’t ashamed of grace. He was attacked for it.
Salvation is not just eternal life. It is also wholeness and health. Yeshua is Hebrew for Sotaria. Righteousness of God from faith to faith, unveiling the gift of righteousness.
During the time of the reformers, they preached justification by faith. But sadly today if you preach what they preached, you are told u are preaching a new or different gospel. Upside down faith being propagated. No wonder people feel that there is no power in the gospel because churches are preaching a different Jesus from what’s in the bible.
Fear and unbelief is sin. Fearfulness and unbelieving = categorised before the adulterors etc. Jesus appeared in the upper room in the midst of the disciples when they were afraid. He appeared to a tax collector who was perceived to have betrayed his nation. Jesus came to be with us forever even if we have challenges we are facing within ourselves.
God did not withdraw his voice or fellowship from Cain- did speak to ask him where Abel was. Cain believed in performance, not Abel. Abel believed he could not satisfy God by self efforts so brought a blood sacrifice in form of lamb. Cain was a worshipped depending on self works/ efforts. The first murder was because of religion. Today those who believe in self efforts still persecute those who trust in grace.
Mystery kept secret NOW made manifest. Not new thing invented by pastor. Rediscovered. Paul said where sin abounds, grace SUPERabounds. He didn’t say where there is grace, it causes there to be sin. Have more faith in what Jesus did, not in what Adam did.
Martin Lloyd Jones said we are not being persecuted like Paul was because we don’t preach about grace like him.
Made manifest for OBEDIENCE to the faith. Under Law> obedience is the root. Under Grace> obedience is the fruit. Jesus did not qualify people before healing them. It wasn’t a legalistic obedience. When we believe right, we will love right. The righteous shall live by faith. Right believing will release the power of God and right results will be effortless.
Romans 5:19 We sin because we are sinners. Not because we sin. Adam’s sin made us all sinners.
By ONE MAN’s obedience– refers to Jesus’ obedience. If u are elated because you obey, by the same token u will be dismayed when I disobey. Or if u think u have God’s favour when u obey then by same token u will feel u have lost favour when u disobey. —> all warfare based on focus on self-occupation. To the extent we are Christ occupied, to the extent we are not in pain.
Woman at the well was self-occupied at first. Clue to this: She wanted to avoid gossipers. Jesus told her if she knew the gift of God, she would receive His supply not try to supply Him.
As long as we hide our sin we don’t feel loved.
True worship is seen in John 4. Note in John 3, Nicodemus didn’t receive the revelation. But the revelation of worship and who the Messiah is was given to the fallen woman in John3. She transformed from self occupation to Christ occupation. We see Jesus is reinvigorated when we receive from Him. “I have food that you do not know of.”
2Cor 10:4-5 obedience OF Christ is the essence of warfare. Enemy wants us to think it is all of our obedience. You should not be trying to make your thoughts obey, instead you should bring it to HIS obedience. Our own obedience is never enough.
Unworthy partaking of communion in bible isn’t referring to our level of worthiness but our actions ie. when we forget that his striped body purchased our health.
The devil engages us in mind games. He likes to put personal pronouns in our minds. The “I” in statements like “I am a failure” is not borne of you. He makes u take the thought. Even during P&W you can suddenly hear his blasphemous thoughts surface in your mind. Don’t stop praising. Keep praising and don’t put hands down. Although our flesh has already been crucified, we still hear echoes from it. Like when u ring a bell, u can hear its echoes even afterwards.
The highest form of resistance against the enemy is IGNORING him, not rebuking him. Rebel against the devil- he plants thoughts in your mind then whacks you on the head when u accept them ie. those fears or lies manifest.
Jesus forgiveness is in our past, present and future. Pastor shared how when he was younger he would often confess straight after he uttered something wrong- cover his mouth and whisper his repentance to God. People thought he was strange and it did not give glory to the peace Jesus left unto us or the joy that the gospel affords us. Shared about how he and Pastor Henry once helped a lady undergoing demonic possession. She said in a distinctly male voice “I WANT HER MIND!” When the demon finally left her, the whole room reeked like a rubbish dump. Opposite of what the Word says of us- sweet fragrance to God because we are in Christ. Pastor shared how he was the only one struggling with this crazy worry whether he had committed the unpardonable sin. Came across John Bunyan’s autobiography where he shared- First, all my comfort was taken from me; then darkness seized me; after which whole floods of blasphemies, both against God, Christ, and the Scriptures, were poured upon my spirit, to my great confusion and astonishment. While I was in this torment, I often found in my mind a sudden urge to curse and swear, or to speak some grievous thing against God, Christ His Son, or of the Scriptures. Now I thought, surely I am possessed of the devil. At other times, I thought I would lose my mind; for instead of praising and magnifying the Lord with others, if I but heard Him spoken of, presently some most horrible blasphemous thought or other would bolt out of my heart against Him.
This is why Jesus was crucified at Golgotha ( place of the skull).
See 1 Jn 4:17> “As Jesus IS” and not as Jesus was. Crowned with honour, glory, might.
We are transformed by beholding and not by struggling. Pastor shares testimony of lady in our church who wrote “Does Jesus have lumps? NO!” on her doctor’s report on her cancer. She was healed. As HE is, so is she. As He is, so are we.
How to have more grace? 2 Peter 1:2> the more Jesus is unveiled, the more grace is multiplied.
When Peter beheld Jesus, he could walk on water like Jesus. But when he got distracted, he became natural. When the people suffered from snake bites looked at the bronze serpent they were healed.
Not enough emphasis on the significance of the High Priest (HP). Where the HP went, Israel followed. When the HP entered the Holy of Holies and exited alive, there was great rejoicing because the people knew they would enjoy a plentiful period. When the HP entered but didn’t make it out alive, they knew they would suffer. It was not about how good the nation was but how good the HP was. See Exo28.
Many people know what Jesus did but don’t know what He IS doing right now.
The shoulder represents power/strength. The shepherd bore the sheep on his shoulder. The sheep can’t carry itself. The shepherd does everything. The sheep rest.
Names of tribe are engraved on His heart. God loves us individually. Not just as a whole. Why engraved? Because it cannot be erased. It is eternal. There is a passage of the bible that talks about names being blotted out from the Book of Life. The names of both believers and non-believers are written in the book of life. Names blotted out at the end of the day are those who have chosen not to receive the LORD’s salvation. Once you receive His salvation through faith, cannot lose it. It is not salvation until the next sin. It is a perfect and eternal salvation. The LORD loves us individually. We aren’t just a face in the crowd. Jewellery shops use a special light to display their precious stones because the stones reflect the light and their beautiful clarity and cut becomes visible. People sometimes are across to come into God’s light fearing that it will expose their imperfections. No. We need not fear because we reflect His light and show how perfect the finished work of The Son is.
Exo 28:36-38 > Aaron is the HP. On his hat, in gold, holiness ?? LORD. See Exo 28:38— our iniquity is forever written on his forehead. We are accepted not because we think good thoughts. Based on the HP’s thoughts. As long as His thoughts are holy, we are accepted and considered righteous.
We don’t need to fear that our thoughts ( that are stressful/ angry/ wrong/ about self-r/ self-efforts) will disqualify us tomorrow.
What happened in a garden ends in a garden.
Like 22:44- Note the word “sweat”. Adam’s sweat vs Jesus’ sweat. The blood of the LORD fell to the ground that was cursed. We have been redeemed from the curse of self-effort. Everywhere we go, where we step becomes favour ground!
Even in our best days, still our thoughts are filled with iniquity but these are not imputed unto us. HP bears it all for us. The iniquity of the hallowed gifts- even our self efforts to do good have iniquity. God knew about it. So in Christ as long as His thoughts are holy, we are righteous. God assess us based on Jesus’ thoughts and not our own.
The word ‘accepted’ here is Ratzon in Greek. Favour. We are accepted and thus we have favour. Jesus does not disappoint!

sotaria – soundness, health, wholeness, wealth, well-being, preservation
Paul is not ashamed to preach the Gospel.
Yeshua is the hebrew word for sotaria.
the early church oredi knew abt the righteousness by faith – Martin Luther, the age of reformation
Fear and unbelief is actually sin.
The disciples actually oso had fear but Jesus is still in the midst with them in their fears.
Jesus will never leave their presence and He will never leave me nor forsake me.
God still talks to us – just like Cain. He had a conversation with Cain still, despite after he killed his own brother.
1st murder was over the religion methods.
have more faith in what Christ had done than what Adam did.
obedience is the root of all blessings – that’s in the old.
But now God blesses us first and obedience is the fruit.
revival stopped because man brought in the law.
We are righteous by what Jesus had done and not by what we have done.
The righteous shall live by faith and right believing with right living.
we are sinners becoz of Adam sins and we sin becoz of Adam’s sin.
all warfare started whenever we start to be so self-occupied.
a moment with Jesus and we’ll be lifted out from self.
a sinner had come to take from Jesus, He gets stronger and stronger
2 Cor 10:4-5
as long as it’s focused on ourselves, anything is not enuf.
Jesus body is broken for our body to be well. See that His body was broken for us and that our body got healed.
Do not receive negative as our thoughts. Don’t take responsibilties over all these tots.
Sometimes these can also come from our flesh.
when we have bad tots, these don’t
come from ourselves.
the highest form of resistance against the devil is to ignore him – rebel against the devil.
the devil is an attention-seeker.
look away from self and usually that’s the essence of depression
the battle is in our minds, that’s where the devil will always attack us in.
it is not our obedience but it is the obedience of Christ.
– John Binion
Look away from the negative tots
1 John 4:17
As He is, so are we in this world.
the more we behold the glory of God, the more we are transformed.
2 Peter 1:2
the more we see and know Jesus, more grace and peace will be multiplied
when we look at Jesus, the Holy Spirit will start working.
repentance is also consent to be loved, to be saved, etc.
We are upheld by His strength and on His shoulders.
The Lord loves us individually!
God is accepting / rejecting us based on Jesus tots and not our tots! He accepts us based on Jesus’ tots.
God does not assess me or judge me based on my tots. It’s based on Jesus’ tots – my High Priest in Heaven.
ratzon (favor) : the word accepted (in exodus 28:38)

Dear brother in grace and in Christ,
I have subscribed to your sermon notes since the beginning of the year and it’s by God’s grace that He has led me to your ‘ministry’.
I am here to just express my gratitude to you for posting these sermon notes online to bless people who aren’t able to be there physically to be fed by the Word weekly (Because I am one of them). Yet, every week, I am looking forward to receiving an email notification saying that the latest notes are up. After ‘digesting’ the notes you have shared, I would normally have some good Jesus-talks with my sisters in Christ who attend New Creation Church weekly. This aids a lot in my spiritual walk.
After all, I am grateful that God uses you in this unique way to bless people all around the world. He who started the good work will bring it to a completion. And as He is the One working behind you, He will provide you all you need to keep this ministry alive! And truly, Grace is the Gospel. To God be the glory!
