Come to Jesus with our imperfect faith!
Only God can handle yud. Our part is to receive grace!
God’s favor comes on us regardless of our ages, background or who we are.
When God’s favor is on us, nothing can stop us!
God works through authority.
When we come to the Lord, we are conscious of our doubts, of whether the Lord hears us because we doubt. We are believing yet there is doubting.
Romans 4:1-8 1 What then shall we say that Abraham our father has found according to the flesh? 2 For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God. 3 For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” 4 Now to him who works, the wages are not counted as grace but as debt. David Celebrates the Same Truth 5 But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness, 6 just as David also describes the blessedness of the man to whom God imputes righteousness apart from works: 7 “Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, And whose sins are covered; 8 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin.”
If u work for something God cannot give to u by grace.
Grace is not natural. It takes holy spirit to give us this revelation.
If God goes by what we deserve, it is hell.
Rest and believe on Him who justify the ungodly.
Faith in what Jesus has done.
Abraham amen God.
When we say amen, it is releasing faith!
Salvation is like swimming pool. When we jump into the swimming pool, we touch water and become wet. We do not need to be “taught” how to be wet.
Proverbs 4:1 1 Hear, my children, the instruction of a father, And give attention to know understanding;
Whatever man produces cannot match what the Lord work!
God’s word is health to all out flesh.
Those who seek, found!
Speak enough time.
The way u look at the Father is looking at Jesus on the cross.
Rainbow was placed in the sky
When we fall, we fall in the ark. We don’t fall out of ark.
When u r under grace, u r not been ungodly.
With every passing days, the path of righteous becomes brighter and brighter!
The last enemy is physical death.
Yeshua HaNazarei Vemelekh HaYhudim
Study of Jesus gives is life!
9 x 3 =27
New testament is 27 books! Old testament is 39 books.
Health to all our flesh when we study the new testament!
There is no medicine like God’s medicine!
Genesis 17:1-6 Abraham was 99 years old.
God did not say only when u r blameless then u can walk before Him. He said walk with Him then we become blameless!
Hei vav hei Yud
We live by the Hei! Hei is the 5th letter. 5 is the nos of grace.
Abram became Abraham, Father of many!!
The promise manifested after the name is changed.
Sarai – my sir my lord my captain She was dominating.
Sarah – God removed the yud and put the hei. The name means princess.
Grace is nos 5.
Yud is nos 10, nos of the law. When u r under law u become self righteous.
God removed the law and gives us grace.
Only God can handle yud. Our part is to receive grace!
Genesis 17:15-22 Then God said to Abraham, “As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall be her name. 16 And I will bless her and also give you a son by her; then I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of peoples shall be from her.” 17 Then Abraham fell on his face and laughed, and said in his heart, “Shall a child be born to a man who is one hundred years old? And shall Sarah, who is ninety years old, bear a child?” 18 And Abraham said to God, “Oh, that Ishmael might live before You!” 19 Then God said: “No, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his descendants after him. 20 And as for Ishmael, I have heard you. Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly. He shall beget twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation. 21 But My covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah shall bear to you at this set time next year.” 22 Then He finished talking with him, and God went up from Abraham.
Hebrews 11:11 By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised.
Genesis 18:10 And He said, “I will certainly return to you according to the time of life, and behold, Sarah your wife shall have a son.” (Sarah was listening in the tent door which was behind him.)
Genesis 18:11 Now Abraham and Sarah were old, well advanced in age; and Sarah had passed the age of childbearing.
We are righteous by faith.
When we sin and fall, God will not impute sins to us. He has impute sin to Jesus at the cross.
It is not fullness of faith, it is imperfect faith. The woman with the issue of blood came from the back to touch Jesus. She touched with trembling hands. Her faith was imperfect, yet Jesus wants to heal her. She is the only woman in the bible Jesus called her My daughter. He said to her”your faith made u well” He did not want her to be in darkness. He wants her to be open to receive all the light and be healthy!
Be afraid of one thing – not coming to Jesus. Do not be afraid to come in spite of our disbelief.
He who comes to Jesus shall never hunger.
Come believing yet doubting. Jesus will forgive the doubt!
When we come believing yet doubting, we can receive! Our hearts believe. Jesus forgive the doubts and answer the faith. Come to Him!!
God did not record the imperfect faith of Abraham because he was made the righteousness of God in Christ!
