Be supply-minded! Grace supplies!

Be supply-minded! God supplies!

It is going to be a year of protection because Jesus will open doors of life and close the doors of sickness and death.

Jesus opens and no one can shut and He shuts and no one can open.

God never meant for this world to have danger, sicknesses and death.
The wages of sin is death.

God calls death an enemy. He sent His Son to conquer death.

God gave the authority of this earth to man. God has given..and He honor His promise.

He sent His Son, Jesus Christ.

People sin because they are sinners. They are sinners because of Adam’s sins.

By His obedience we are made righteous!

By Jesus’ obedience, our blood is cleansed by His blood and we are born again! We are in the world but not of this world!!

The church is the proclaimer of the goodness of God!

The gospel produces morality. Is not morality that produces the gospel.

God did not send His Son to condemn the world but the world through Him might be saved!

‘Come home to My house where there is more than enough’

When someone believes the good news, he is born again.

The gospel save people! No point just preaching to the fruit.

Deuteronomy 28:12-13
The Lord will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. And the Lord will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them.

The Lord will open to us His treasury.

The Lord will open His good treasury to His people this year!

A rain will fall. Not physical rain only. When He open the treasury, the rain will fall. Watch it when Israel receive rain.

The sea of galilee is below the abundant line for 10 years. The 10 years drought was broken this month!

Every time something happen to natural Israel, we are the spiritual Israel.

God selected 1 nation to demonstrate to what the people close to Him will be like. Israel is still God’s covenant people.

1 Corinthians 15:46
However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural, and afterward the spiritual.

1967- Jerusalem was back to their land after 7 days! Repeat of bible history.

Our Lord Jesus is opening its treasury for us!!!

The rain will fall and He will bless all the work of our hands!!!

I shall be above ONLY !!

Treasure (Otsar)

Matthew 6:19-21
Lay Up Treasures in Heaven
“ Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Where ur treasure is, ur heart will be there too!! – if we put our money in the kingdom of God, our hearts will follow!

Put our trust in the bank of heaven!

Mark 10:29-30
So Jesus answered and said, “ Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My sake and the gospel’s, who shall not receive a hundredfold now in this time—houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions—and in the age to come, eternal life.

God’s prosperity is on all areas of our lives!

Treasure (thesoros)

Isaiah 55:9-11
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.
“For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven,
And do not return there,
But water the earth,
And make it bring forth and bud,
That it may give seed to the sower
And bread to the eater,
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
It shall not return to Me void,
But it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

Jesus always exceed our expectations!!

Ask Him for big things!!

Rain comes down as droplets. God allows His words to come down like rain! Even a child can understand. Children heard Jesus and wants to go to Him.

The rain comes down n evaporate again. It will fertilise prosper n refresh and then will go back.

When we receive God’s word of healing, we are healed!

Jesus took our poverty to give us prosperity!

Without money we cannot save people in need. Money is lousy master but wonderful servant.
The poor cannot help the poor. Prosperity is for service!

Good news produce true morality! Heal bodies, save children!

Wherever His words go, prosperity comes!

God’s blessings – seed to the sower and bread to the eater.

We are a vessel, in flow and out flow.

Is for us to eat and sow.

2 Corinthians 9:7-9
So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. As it is written:
“He has dispersed abroad,
He has given to the poor;
His righteousness endures forever.”

The house of God, the people of God will receive all sufficiency in all things!!

2 Corinthians 9:10-11
Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness, while you are enriched in everything for all liberality, which causes thanksgiving through us to God.

With the abundance of rain, it is coming to the spiritual Israel!! Not just enough, but abundance!!

God constantly supplies us seeds! We are not under demand, we are under supplies!!!

God constantly supplies seeds to the one constantly sowing!!

Constant flow! Is going through our hands!!

God supplies and multiply seeds sown!!

God wants to multiply the seeds!

God plants one seed, Seed of David and multiplies a lot of sons!!

God breathes spirit into babies
The spirit will envelope him

Isaiah 45:3
I will give you the treasures of darkness
And hidden riches of secret places,
That you may know that I, the Lord,
Who call you by your name,
Am the God of Israel.

He will give us the treasure that is now hidden.

God said He will give us the treasure of darkness and the hidden treasure of the hidden.

1 Chronicles 26:24-27
Shebuel the son of Gershom, the son of Moses, was overseer of the treasuries. And his brethren by Eliezer were Rehabiah his son, Jeshaiah his son, Joram his son, Zichri his son, and Shelomith his son.
This Shelomith and his brethren were over all the treasuries of the dedicated things which King David and the heads of fathers’ houses, the captains over thousands and hundreds, and the captains of the army, had dedicated. Some of the spoils won in battles they dedicated to maintain the house of the Lord.

Natural Israel, their land was small. Everytime they were attacked, they fought back and got more!

When devil attack us, we response back spiritually, we receive much more than what we have now!!!

2 Chronicles 5:1
Chapter 5
So all the work that Solomon had done for the house of the Lord was finished; and Solomon brought in the things which his father David had dedicated:the silver and the gold and all the furnishings. And he put them in the treasuries of the house of God.

Nehemiah 2:10
When Sanballat the Horonite and Tobiah the Ammonite official heard of it, they were deeply disturbed that a man had come to seek the well- being of the children of Israel.

The tithe was before the law.

Nehemiah 13:4-5
The Reforms of Nehemiah
Now before this, Eliashib the priest, having authority over the storerooms of the house of our God, was allied with Tobiah. And he had prepared for him a large room, where previously they had stored the grain offerings, the frankincense, the articles, the tithes of grain, the new wine and oil, which were commanded to be given to the Levites and singers and gatekeepers, and the offerings for the priests.

Neh 13:4-12

Nehemiah 13:8-9
And it grieved me bitterly; therefore I threw all the household goods of Tobiah out of the room. Then I commanded them to cleanse the rooms; and I brought back into them the articles of the house of God, with the grain offering and the frankincense.

When worship goes out to the heaven, and protection of God comes down on us!

Praise n worship- input gifts into our lives

Otsar – storerooms

Deuteronomy 28:12
The Lord will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow.

Jesus has the final word!! He open His good treasure in the heaven!!

God will bless all the works of our hands! The one doing the blessings is Jesus! He opens Himself as the treasure!!

Let go and let God!!

Let go and let God!! (hokkien svc)

Grace is for us to rest in the Lord.

Everything is finished!!! Jesus has finished the work for us!!

What is important is for us to rest in the Lord. We will then be joyful!!

Grace come into our lives and everything is different. All our problems have changed for good!!

Repent-change of mind

Jesus has taken all the punishment of sins from us!

He is The Focus!!

Our problem is we always look to the problem. Focus on Jesus!!

We are always self-centred. In grace, Jesus wants us to focus on Him!

As Jesus is, so am I in this world
Romans 7:15-25

The word “should” is law-based.

Flesh is not perfect. Our spirit has the spirit of righteousness.

When we look to Jesus, know that He has taken all the punishment of our sins!

We can live a better life in Christ!!

Grace is a Person.

We depend on Jesus’ grace!

We depend on Christ, He be BIGGER AND BIGGER in our lives and we become smaller and smaller! When we depend on Him, we are not so bitter!

苦- has 3 cross! Let go and let God!!

Be careful of what we speak. In chinese culture, the word “death” is something that we don’t like to say, yet when we speak, we tend to put in this word!

笑死人, 气死人

Grateful people can be restful.

We carry a lot of burdens and cause us to be unrestful.

We depend on Grace and be restful. The more we let go, the more we will see!!!!

Don’t depend on ourselves, depend on Jesus!!!

Galatians 5:4
You have become estranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace.

Don’t fall from grace. When we look at ourselves, we fall from grace.

The more we look at Jesus, the more we see supplies!!

Jesus wants to show His glory cos all is finished!!

Hebrews 3:12
Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God;

Evil heart is disbelief.

Problem is not big, Jesus is BIGGER!!

We believe God, we believe Jesus!!

Hebrews 4:9-11
There remains therefore a rest for the people of God. 10 For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His.
The Word Discovers Our Condition
11 Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience.

Let go because Jesus wants to take control! Let go of our own work and let Jesus do His work for us!!!

We must therefore LABOUR TO ENTER HIS REST! Let go and Jesus’ hands are bigger! He will take over when we let go!!

We must be “hardworking” to let go!

Target is what we do. Hope is we depend on Jesus.

Jesus’ heart wants the whole world to be saved. This is HOPE.

Jesus gives us free will. Must be willing. We must depend on Jesus.

Hope is not within our ability. We must depend on Jesus!!

Don’t mixed target and hope.

*animals don’t laugh-therefore is a beast. This is the difference between beast and human. (haha! A joke!)

Titus 2:1-8
1 But as for you, speak the things which are proper for sound doctrine: 2 that the older men be sober, reverent, temperate, sound in faith, in love, in patience; 3 the older women likewise, that they be reverent in behavior, not slanderers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things— 4 that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, 5 to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed.
6 Likewise, exhort the young men to be sober- minded, 7 in all things showing yourself to be a pattern of good works; in doctrine showing integrity, reverence, incorruptibility, 8 sound speech that cannot be condemned, that one who is an opponent may be ashamed, having nothing evil to say of you.

Target – we can encourage to get the target. We can do it

Hope – we cannot control it. We can only depend on Jesus!

Let us not be tired. Don’t depend on ourselves. Let go ur heart, let go and let God!!!

When we depend on Jesus, we can be restful.

Treat people with grace.
Grace is what we don’t deserve yet we receive.

Don’t try to control!

When wife wants to talk to husband, she wants u to hear him, not to solve the problem.

Be considerate of people. Treat people with love. Be considerate of how they feel.

Don’t judge. Listen first, don’t speak first.

James 1:19
19 So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath;

Swift to hear..slow to speak!!!

Proverbs 18:13
He who answers a matter before he hears it,
It is folly and shame to him.

Listen and encourage. Use our mouth to speak good words of encouragement!!

All marriages have certain problems. Be considerate and speak encouragements.

Colossians 4:2-6
2 Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving; 3 meanwhile praying also for us, that God would open to us a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in chains, 4 that I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.
5 Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside, redeeming the time. 6 Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one.

Encourage each other more in family.

Put salt into your words, don’t let it be plain. Turn water into wine!

Mark 9:50
Salt is good, but if the salt loses its flavor, how will you season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace with one another.”

Have good relationship! This is important!!

Put Jesus BIG BIG and me small small!! In grace, we see Jesus!!

Be grateful!

Jesus walks in the midst of us!

Jesus walks in the midst of us!

God care us! He loves us long before we knew Him!

Jesus died on the cross when nobody wanted His Salvation.

John 1:1-12

John 1:1
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

A force that science could not understand. Science cant understand how things are held together

In Christ, all things are held together! We become whole!

At the cross, Jesus saved everything from crush!

Jesus is the super glue for the marriage!

In Him was life! Zoe life!! Right at the apex, the lowest form of life is vegetable life.
Base of the pyramid is human life!

Zoe means life!!

Those who die and go to hell “live” forever there. We are spirit. Salvation is eternal! The effect is eternal!! Not progression.

We are put in a house called body.

We have the body that Jesus has in the rapture!

In Jesus was life and light!

Light – ideas! Light out of darkness. Man innovate when Jesus is in place.

Jesus is the Light in my business!!

We can have knowledge but no light. But with Jesus, we can have light that is more powerful than someone with knowledge!!

Light Be! First word recorded in the bible!

Those people who do crazy things are in darkness.

The light of glorious gospel shine into us!

Believe wrong and u do crazy things.

Believe right and repentance happened and we are blessed really right!!

God is love and God is light!!

Grab the good characteristics out of darkness.

He looks beyond our fault n see our needs!

People who are in darkness don’t know they are in darkness.

Our identity is in Christ! He is perfect n God sees us perfect!!

Exodus 10:22-23
So Moses stretched out his hand toward heaven, and there was thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days. 23 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 our dwellings! Thick darkness is not natural darkness. Light here is also not natural, is super natural light!!

U do not want to live in a cave! Let the light so its job!

Let the light of Jesus shines into the darkness. When light turn on, darkness flees!

John-God’s grace!

That light that came gives innovation, prosperity!!

God wants us to prosper!! Materialism is wrong. Keep prosperity as servant and serve the kingdom of God!!

The entrance of God’s word gives light!!

Our lives surround the church!

Lift up Jesus before God!

Without Christ, every human is in natural light.
With Christ, the light of the church (candle stick). Light of the church is supernatural light!!

Fire represent God’s judgement. Our sins are finished!

Fire must keep on burning!

Leviticus 24:1-3
1 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 2 “Command the children of Israel that they bring to you pure oil of pressed olives for the light, to make the lamps burn continually. 3 Outside the veil of the Testimony, in the tabernacle of meeting, Aaron shall be in charge of it from evening until morning before the Lord continually; it shall be a statute forever in your generations.

A light that is going out, it goes down until it submerge.

When u have lost ur songs n ur life is out of tune, God will never throw u away!!

God is with us!! He never forsake us!!

Our part is to preach, not to explain. Preach about Jesus and His salvation!

Our part is to proclaim and share! Holy spirit will explain internally.

We are in the holy place where light is supernatural.

Revelation 2:1-2
‘ These things says He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands: 2 “ I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars;

Jesus is not writing to fallen angel. He wrote to pastors! Pastors are held responsible for what message is allowed in church.

Candle stick-bring glory to Jesus’ name.

Jesus walks in the midst of us!

Your work
Your labour
Your patience

Natural light-they are so involved in so many good works

Supernatural light

1 Thessalonians 1:2-3
Their Good Example
2 We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers, 3 remembering without ceasing your work of faith, labor of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ in the sight of our God and Father,

It is why u do what u do.

When we have times we do not feel like doing certain things, for Christ, we do! This is labour of love!!

Endure knowing our future is bring! Labour of love!! Faith Hope n Love makes us successful!!

Numbers 8:1-3
1 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 2 “Speak to Aaron, and say to him, ‘When you arrange the lamps, the seven lamps shall give light in front of the lampstand. ’” 3 And Aaron did so; he arranged the lamps to face toward the front of the lampstand, as the Lord commanded Moses.

When u r going down..Jesus lift us up so that we can shine brighter!!

He lift us up in the darkest time!!

The light must point to the centre light! Jesus Christ!!!

Bring light to Jesus! Glorify Jesus, and not man!!

Put Jesus in the centre in our marriage!!

Jesus will not disappoint me!!!

Acts 3:11-13
11 Now as the lame man who was healed held on to Peter and John, all the people ran together to them in the porch which is called Solomon’s, greatly amazed. 12 So when Peter saw it, he responded to the people: “Men of Israel, why do you marvel at this? Or why look so intently at us, as though by our own power or godliness we had made this man walk? 13 The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God of our fathers, glorified His Servant Jesus, whom you delivered up and denied in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let Him go.

7 lamps point to centre-Jesus!!

Anything that builds on man is doomed to fail!

Is our light shinning on Jesus?

Labour of love

1 Thessalonians 5:5
You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.

1 Thessalonians 5:8
But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation.

Believe we are righteous in Christ!!

Our bible hope is confident expectation of good!!

We are not in the world, we are in Christ!!!

1 Timothy 1:12-14
Glory to God for His Grace
12 And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry, 13 although I was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and an insolent man; but I obtained mercy because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. 14 And the grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant, with faith and love which are in Christ Jesus.

Faith n love which is in Christ Jesus!!

Faith n love are one! Therefore is singular !

Perfected praise from infant! Ordain strength in perfected praise!!

Talk to the Lord n it is therapeutic! He washes us afresh!!

Have good opinion of God!

Faith-have good opinion of God!

We are in His covenant!

Dwell in the shadow of His wings!
God cut a covenant with all of us!

When God cut a new covenant, is with man. It is not fallible man. It is Jesus! This covenant can last forever. This is between God and the Perfect Man-Jesus!

When Jesus said He gives us eternal life, it means eternal! Not until the next sin.

If we fail, who pay for it? Jesus paid for us! It depends on His obedient. This is the gospel of Jesus!

Romans 1:16-17
The Just Live by Faith
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”

It is the power of God unto our wholeness.

No one can pluck us out of Jesus’ hands!

It is the power of God until salvation! The power of God is reveal into your life when you believe!

Your faith has sozo! Is used for deliverance!

If you believe the good news, God releases the power in our lives!

Receive all that Jesus has done for us! This is really good news!

When u believe the good news, the power of God will deliver us!

These things that you may know that you have eternal life! – this is the integrity of God and His words!

Holy Spirit will guide us in all truths!

The letter of Paul himself said are not his word, but the word of God!

The righteousness of God is received as a gift! It is not for us to do to achieve!

Wrong opinion of God can affect our joy and peace!

Psalms 89:34
My covenant I will not break,
Nor alter the word that has gone out of My lips.

When u break a covenant u die. It is blood covenant.

Marriage is a covenant. It is not a contract. It is 100%

David use covenant language. He looked at the giant and asked who is this uncircumcised philistine! David was conscious of covenant!

We are God’s covenant children! We are not supposed to be sick or lack.

1 Samuel 18:1-4
Now when he had finished speaking to Saul, the soul of Jonathan was knit to the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul. Saul took him that day, and would not let him go home to his father’s house anymore. Then Jonathan and David made a covenant, because he loved him as his own soul. And Jonathan took off the robe that was on him and gave it to David, with his armor, even to his sword and his bow and his belt.

They were cutting covenant! This is deep friendship.

As a leader your success as a leader is to raise leader!

Evil spirit came on King Saul when he was insecure.

When David played the music, evil spirit will leave.
King Saul targeted at David because of envy. Yet David respect King Saul.

Safety lies in the shadow of Your wings.

Jonathan loved David to the extent he will help him find King Saul (his father’s mood)

1 Samuel 20:14-17
And you shall not only show me the kindness (hesed-grace) of the Lord while I still live, that I may not die; but you shall not cut off your kindness from my house forever, no, not when the Lord has cut off every one of the enemies of David from the face of the earth.” So Jonathan made a covenant with the house of David, saying, “Let the Lord require it at the hand of David’s enemies.”
Now Jonathan again caused David to vow, because he loved him; for he loved him as he loved his own soul.

Your hesed is better than life!

His mercy (hsesed) endures forever.

Jonathan is a warrior!

Understand the covenant. All have sin and come short of the glory of God.

God cares for me and He loves me.

King Saul is a picture of human race.
Jonathan means the gift of God. He is a picture of Jesus.
David is a picture of God. The house of David is as God.

Our new covenant is not the covenant of the law that Moses cut on behalf of Israel.

David and Jonathan cut the covenant. Jesus represent us to cut covenant with us.

David’s mighty men were growing in power!

They are giant-killers now.

David called Saul the Lord’s anointed.

God can cause deep sleep to fall on us when we need.

2 Samuel 1:17-23
The Song of the Bow
Then David lamented with this lamentation over Saul and over Jonathan his son, and he told them to teach the children of Judah the Song of the Bow; indeed it is written in the Book of Jasher:
“The beauty of Israel is slain on your high places!
How the mighty have fallen!
Tell it not in Gath,
Proclaim it not in the streets of Ashkelon—
Lest the daughters of the Philistines rejoice,
Lest the daughters of the uncircumcised triumph.
“O mountains of Gilboa,
Let there be no dew nor rain upon you,
Nor fields of offerings.
For the shield of the mighty is cast away there!
The shield of Saul, not anointed with oil.
From the blood of the slain,
From the fat of the mighty,
The bow of Jonathan did not turn back,
And the sword of Saul did not return empty.
“Saul and Jonathan were beloved and pleasant in their lives,
And in their death they were not divided;
They were swifter than eagles,
They were stronger than lions.

2 Samuel 1:26-27
I am distressed for you, my brother Jonathan;
You have been very pleasant to me;
Your love to me was wonderful,
Surpassing the love of women.
“How the mighty have fallen,
And the weapons of war perished!”

Holy, deep friendship and pure.

David cursed the mountain where King Saul and his sons died. Till now the mountain is still cursed.

The power of your tongue. I am the salt of the earth and the light of the world! Where there is the word of the king, there is power!
With long life, God satisfy me!

2 Samuel 4:4
Jonathan, Saul’s son, had a son who was lame in his feet. He was five years old when the news about Saul and Jonathan came from Jezreel; and his nurse took him up and fled. And it happened, as she made haste to flee, that he fell and became lame. His name was Mephibosheth.(means breathing out shame)

Wrong message from outside to the palace. They thought David is going after Mephibosheth.

Mephibosheth- represent us. We belong to the heavenly Jonathan.

The boy, Mephibosheth did not know and see the covenant David and Jonathan cut. No one told him David loves him. No one told him the good news.

If only someone told them how much David loves King Saul and Jonathan.

We are sons of the heavenly Jonathan. Man shall not live by bread alone!!

Mephibosheth was given wrong opinion about David.

David still wonder in the wilderness after King Saul died.

2 Samuel 9:1
Chapter 9
David’s Kindness to Mephibosheth
Now David said, “Is there still anyone who is left of the house of Saul, that I may show him kindness for Jonathan’s sake?”

Whenever u r hasty, u make bad decision. Stay cool. Dont worry people are overtaking me, God will show me the shortcut.

The house of Saul listened to the wrong msg!

David heart is for him

God is not mad at the world! Got is mad about them!

God make covent to make us secure!

2 Samuel 9:1-13

2 Samuel 9:6
Now when Mephibosheth the son of Jonathan, the son of Saul, had come to David, he fell on his face and prostrated himself. Then David said, “Mephibosheth?”
And he answered, “Here is your servant!”

David representing God. He call us by our name. Mephibosheth represent us.

The first word Jesus tell us is always Do not be afraid!! He wants us to fear not! Whoever we fear, we will make the person our enemy.

2 Samuel 9:7
So David said to him, “Do not fear, for I will surely show you kindness for Jonathan your father’s sake, and will restore to you all the land of Saul your grandfather; and you shall eat bread at my table continually.”

Royal table! We are so honored to be eating at the royal table.

Those who feel loved will love!

David went down to where Mephibosheth was. He will SURELY show him kindness while he was still lame!
He said for Jonathan’s sake. But Mephibosheth focused on himself n breathed shame and said how bad he is.

Come to God and be conscious of Him and His goodness and His freedom!!

Jesus said He call His sheep by name. He knows me by name!

1st message from heaven is DO NOT FEAR. DONT BE AFRAID.

God said I will surely show u kindness for Jesus’ sake!

2 Samuel 9:7
So David said to him, “Do not fear, for I will surely show you kindness for Jonathan your father’s sake, and will restore to you all the land of Saul your grandfather; and you shall eat bread at my table continually.”

It is not about me. It is about Jesus’ goodness and grace!

2 Samuel 9:12-13
Mephibosheth had a young son whose name was Micha (Means who is like God?) . And all who dwelt in the house of Ziba were servants of Mephibosheth. So Mephibosheth dwelt in Jerusalem, for he ate continually at the king’s table. And he was lame in both his feet.

Micha (he was the child of Mephibosheth)
when we enter into this covenant, the grace is to our children’s children!

U dont have to be perfect to go to the king’s table! Eat and our eating will empower us to live the overcoming life!

Mephibosheth ate while he was lame. When we eat when we are lame, we shall be lame no more!!
The more we eat we will be whole and live long! We eat while we are still lame. When we come to the table we are busy looking at the King and food!

God is saying Surely!!! Surely!! He will surely show me kindness for
our heavenly Jonathan’ s sake!!

Acts 20:20-21
how I kept back nothing that was helpful, but proclaimed it to you, and taught you publicly and from house to house, testifying to Jews, and also to Greeks, repentance (change of mind) toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ

He is out to free my body and mine. Change your mind towards God!!

Pray in tongue activates our covenant!

Pray in tongue activates our covenant!

Pray that we enter not into temptation and testing.

Pastor Mark asked Pastor Prince if children of Israel were under grace, why did God allow them to go into bondage?

The shadow of the lamb they partook can heal 2 million people – children of Israel, how much more today we have the substance to have super health!!

God gave the idea for printing long before books was been done for fictions. The created of printing press was first given to produce bibles!

Lift up our heads, Jesus is coming! Our redemption draws near!!

Don’t have self-confident, have Christ-confident!!!

Strong anointing is always on any man or any lady whose heart is on God!

God will not lie. He cannot lie!

Man pervert the idea, but that does not stop God from giving ideas.

Problems are not problem when we have God’s wisdom!

God raised His Son because of righteousness.

Why is it God does not seems to move fast when we want Him to?

Exodus 2:23-25
Now it happened in the process of time that the king of Egypt died. Then the children of Israel groaned because of the bondage, and they cried out; and their cry came up to God because of the bondage. 24 So God heard their groaning, and God remembered His covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. 25 And God looked upon the children of Israel, and God acknowledged them.

It is about how much God wants to give to us

Isaiah 43:7
Everyone who is called by My name,
Whom I have created for My glory;
I have formed him, yes, I have made him.”

What is the purpose of God create man? God wants us to be a vessel and a honour.

God created man for glory! The glory of God is something beautiful!

Romans 3:23
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

We were created for the glory of God!

God loves us not because we are perfect. This magnify God’s love for us!

Jesus came as the last Adam. The Saviour of His own.

God takes the preaching of the church seriously. God accept what you accept. Don’t limit God!!

Joshua 24:14-15
“Now therefore, fear the Lord, serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River and in Egypt. Serve the Lord! 15 And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

Every plague that came was a plague against Egypt.
The children of Israel were worshipping other gods when they were made slaves. Even so, God hears them and helped them!!

Even if you are a non-christian and u cry out for a God out there, God will still answer you !

What activates the covenant? When we pray in tongue! Just a groan will reach the throne.

Help together with. – Holy Spirit does that!

Romans 8:26-27
Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

Jesus paid the price! It is illegal for devil to put sickness on us.

Love secret. Groan – an expression that no human words can expeess and is love secret. This is praying in tongue. You are reminding God of your covenant in Christ!!

Acts 7:34
I have surely seen the oppression of My people who are in Egypt; I have heard their groaning and have come down to deliver them. And now come, I will send you to Egypt.” ’

Acts 2:1-4
Chapter 2
Coming of the Holy Spirit
1 When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

1 Corinthians 14:18
I thank my God I speak with tongues more than you all;

Speaking in tongue is the gift of God!
It is strong and powerful!!

It is humbling to pray in tongue!
We are allowing ourselves to activate the covenant.

Acts 2:25-27
For David says concerning Him:
‘I foresaw the Lord always before my face,
For He is at my right hand, that I may not be shaken.
26 Therefore my heart rejoiced, and my tongue was glad;
Moreover my flesh also will rest in hope.
27 For You will not leave my soul in Hades,
Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.

Heart rejoice
Tongue was glad
Flesh rest

Psalms 16:9
Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices;
My flesh also will rest in hope.

Sin is coming short of God’s glory

“I” should never be the centre our lives.He should!

We always thank God for things we are delivered from, but we have not been thanking Him for things/dangers He kept us from.

Pray in tongue, not knowing what we pray for, He keeps us from danger that we are unaware of!

Pray in tongue for our unknown future!

The Key of David – Part 1

The key of David – The Year of Transformation

The devil cannot call the number anymore! Jesus has the key to death!

Revelation 1:16-18
He had in His right hand seven stars, out of His mouth went a sharp two- edged sword, and His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength. And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me, “ Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last. I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death.

This door cannot be open from outside, this door is opened from inside. Jesus will not push in. He wants us to open the door. He is waiting for us to open the door for him to come in.

When u agree, u give God permission! Agree n say Amen!

Jesus has the Key! This is the key of David. Jesus holds the key!

Acts 14:27
Now when they had come and gathered the church together, they reported all that God had done with them, and that He had opened the door of faith to the Gentiles.

2 Corinthians 2:12
Triumph in Christ
Furthermore, when I came to Troas to preach Christ’s gospel, and a door was opened to me by the Lord,

Door was opened BY the Lord!

We are so dependant on Him! We cannot but He can!! 🙂

1 Corinthians 16:9
For a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.

Is because God open the door, there is jealousy.

Opened door in the area of career. There will be people jealous and troubles but God will deliver us from the troubles.

Pray this –
Colossians 4:3-4
meanwhile praying also for us, that God would open to us a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in chains, that I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.

The anointed of holy spirit, people will be transformed!

God opened to me BIG BIG and supernatural utterance and people are transformed!!

God put Your words in my mouth and open the door to me of utterance! Open to me the door of utterance in the holy spirit!!

A few words will carry more weights than a paragraph! It wont fall to the ground!! Those words are full of spirit and life!!

Colossians 4:3 (KJV)
Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds:

It will be a year of open wombs.

Genesis 30:22
Then God remembered Rachel, and God listened to her and opened her womb.

Job 3:10
Because it did not shut up the doors of my mother’s womb,
Nor hide sorrow from my eyes.

God listened to Rachel.
Nothing happened to Rachel before she prayed.

Many times we complain to everybody and our trust is not in God. But whatever happen, our heart open to God and ask Him, He listened to us.

The Key of David – it is placed in God’s hands

The key in our hands are
– prayers is the key! – prayer is an expression of grace. It means i cannot but God can! Do not pre-meditate how God will answer. Even in situation we are cornered, God will open our mouth with door of utterance! Ask God to open new door of opportunities.
Pray to the One who is all powerful! We have influence with Him! I have influence with God!
People pray only when they cannot. But dont wait till u cannot then pray. Pray and let God open the door. Dont open on our own. The door He opened will be more powerful! He will put it into the lock and open the door for me!
Sarah has her youth renewed so shall us!!

– praise is the key! – author of songs of praise is David.

It has got to do with David! It is royal grace!! Jesus is the Root of David n the offspring of David. He made David. As Man, Jesus came from David’s line. As God, Jesus made David!

Acts 16:6-7
The Macedonian Call
Now when they had gone through Phrygia and the region of Galatia, they were forbidden by the Holy Spirit to preach the word in Asia. After they had come to Mysia, they tried to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit did not permit them.

It is possible that God will close door to mission? Yes when God did not plan that for us. We need to hear God’s assignment for us!!

Peter’s anointing is towards the Jews. We have to know God’s assignment for us

Ask God for open door
Know God’s assignment for us

There is such a thing that God said not the time yet n closed doors. Closed door is good for us.

1st record of hearing God is when Adam sin and he heard God’s voice and was afraid.

U dont need to learn 7 steps to listen to Daddy God! We are His children and we surely hear His voice.

We can pray for opened door and closed door!

God does not guide a parked car!!
We have to move. Go out there and move and as we move, listen inwardly.

Acts 16:14
Now a certain woman named Lydia heard us. She was a seller of purple from the city of Thyatira, who worshiped God. The Lord opened her heart to heed the things spoken by Paul.

If your family is anti-Christ, dont give up. Pray for open heart and worship!

Dont put ourselves in the place of God n judge Him. If someone in the remote ask God to reveal Himself, God will find a way to reveal Himself!

Many fortune telling tell u what can happen that is evil because devil can tell u what is his plan.

Acts 16:23-24
And when they had laid many stripes on them, they threw them into prison, commanding the jailer to keep them securely. Having received such a charge, he put them into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the stocks.

Worship God, praise God.

At midnight – midnight time in your life, what do u do? They never complain or question. They were praying and singing hymns to God!

Prayer and praise are the keys!

Acts 16:25
The Philippian Jailer Saved
But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them.

Their worships were not quiet. The prisoners were listening.

While they were praising –
Acts 16:26
Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed.

SUDDENLY- all doors opened n chains loosed! This earthquake sent by God and no one dies!

Destruction is NOT act of God. This earthquake did not destroy.
Ask God to open the door of freedom! Chains are broken off!!

All the prison doors were opened!

What man shut, God can open. What God shut, no one can open!

Acts 16:27
And the keeper of the prison, awaking from sleep and seeing the prison doors open, supposing the prisoners had fled, drew his sword and was about to kill himself.

Acts 16:28
But Paul called with a loud voice, saying, “Do yourself no harm, for we are all here.”

When we receive God’s love, we don’t do harm to people.

Acts 16:29-30
Then he called for a light, ran in, and fell down trembling before Paul and Silas. And he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”

Acts 16:31-32
So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.” Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all who were in his house.

Suddenly – in an instance! This is gotten be a year of Key of David!

Get ready for open doors!!

The Key Of David – Part 2

20130113-224815.jpg

The Key of David – Part 2

The greatest education is to know Christ!

Revelation 3:7-8
The Faithful Church
“ And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write,
“ These things says He who is holy, He who is true, ‘He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens”: “ I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.

Jesus has the Key of David! He will shut the doors of sickness and open the door of abundance and supplies in my life!!!

My Jesus make poor people rich! Rich does not mean it is all for ourselves but about ministries to others!! There r many poor people who has plenty of money. Prosperity is in every area of our life! Jesus stands at the door and knock. We have to open for Him. When He comes in, abundant life comes in! Jesus is never among the sick and they are not healed!

Jesus earthly parents were poor. The rich will bring lambs but the poor will bring doves. His parents brought doves. The wise men came from afar and baby Jesus was more than 1 years plus. These wise men brought to them riches because Jesus was in the house! As a baby, Jesus sponsored his parents! He made them rich!

Whenever Jesus took something, He will never take to give back something greater!! U cannot outgive Jesus!! When u sow in the ministry, Jesus will bless much more!!

Isaiah 22:22
The key of the house of David
I will lay on his shoulder;
So he shall open, and no one shall shut;
And he shall shut, and no one shall open.

Jesus is the Root and Offspring of David!
Root-Speaks of His deity
Offspring-Speaks of His humility

In an instant, Jesus can open doors that have not been opened before.

Key of David because there is something significance about him. He worshiped!

The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not lack! He makes me besides still water! My cups run over! – more than enough!
Surely! – not maybe!

midnight hour in your life? Sing praises to Jesus!!

Acts 16:25-26
The Philippian Jailer Saved
But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed.

Paul and Silas were in their midnight hours of their lives, they were singing praises and every prison doors were opened!! The house of David is characterised by worship! Everything flourishes around them!

Everytime the house of David is filled with praise!!

In new testament God has promised He will bring back the house of David! (Praises!)

Acts 15:13-17
And after they had become silent, James answered, saying, “Men and brethren, listen to me: Simon has declared how God at the first visited the Gentiles to take out of them a people for His name. And with this the words of the prophets agree, just as it is written:
‘After this I will return
And will rebuild the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down;
I will rebuild its ruins,
And I will set it up;
So that the rest of mankind may seek the Lord,
Even all the Gentiles who are called by My name,
Says the Lord who does all these things. ’

This is during the new covenant! He will rebuild the tabernacle of David.
Harvest of souls!

2 Chronicles 29:30
Moreover King Hezekiah and the leaders commanded the Levites to sing praise to the Lord with the words of David and of Asaph the seer. So they sang praises with gladness, and they bowed their heads and worshiped.

Sing the words of David and there is a special anointing!

Zechariah 12:10
Mourning for the Pierced One
“And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn.

It is unmerited undeserved favour!! Dont be busy trying to earn favour. Grace is defined as unearned favour!

Charismatic – means full of favour!

When u have experience unmerited favour, u get back favour!!

Makes us full of thanksgiving!! Thanksgiving – praise! Praise Jesus!!

Dont be one of those common people. The opposite of holy is common!

It is common n easy to complain. But it is uncommon to praise! So lets be uncommon!! Find good things to praise! Learn to praise God more!

The ark of the covenant – symbolised the presence of God!

David brought the Ark back! David brought a new kind of worship! It is direct connection to God-worship!!
All are worshipping God! As they worship God, they are transformed and transforming!!

Worship freely!! Direct interaction with God’s presence!!

The 1st sign a person receive wisdom is that they start to look for God’s presence. They treasure Jesus’ presence! We have a heart for wisdom!

We honour king, but when we see the King of kings we are transformed n never the same!

Study and meditate on Psalm 23!!!
This is the key to your lack!! Meditate!!! Meditate!

Do it because it is the key of David! Praise Jesus always!

Psalms 34:1-15
PSALM 34
The Happiness of Those Who Trust in God
A Psalm of David when he pretended madness before Abimelech, who drove him away, and he departed.
I will bless the Lord at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul shall make its boast in the Lord;
The humble shall hear of it and be glad.
Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
And let us exalt His name together.
I sought the Lord, and He heard me,
And delivered me from all my fears.
They looked to Him and were radiant,
And their faces were not ashamed.
This poor man cried out, and the Lord heard him,
And saved him out of all his troubles.
The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him,
And delivers them.
Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good;
Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints!
There is no want to those who fear Him.
The young lions lack and suffer hunger;
But those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing.
Come, you children, listen to me;
I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
Who is the man who desires life,
And loves many days, that he may see good?
Keep your tongue from evil,
And your lips from speaking deceit.
Depart from evil and do good;
Seek peace and pursue it.
The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous,
And His ears are open to their cry.

Be like David. At 17, he was conscious of the Lord. He has the sword of the Spirit in his mouth! Young David began to sing praises to his sheep. Praise cause his enemies to fall at his feet!!

PRAISE!! Praise is the key!!!

Love the Lord and worship Him! This was what David did.

King Saul was jealous of David and David fled from Saul.
Everytime Saul cornered David and David would praise God and he would be delivered!

David was depressed and he sang praises that God is the Lifter of his head!!
God will turn the situation around for me and put in the key of David!

We are worshipping the One who goes into our past and our future! God is outside time.

David was sad when King Saul was after him and he was on the run.

We fell from our high ground because we forgot to trust God.
Feed and drink and not taste! God leads us besides still water. Drink!

Time of fear, trusting in natural and lose sight of the Lord, inward looking that David wrote this Psalm – Psalm 34:1-15 (a Psalm of David that he pretended madness)

1 Samuel 22:1-2
Chapter 22
David’s Four Hundred Men
David therefore departed from there and escaped to the cave of Adullam. So when his brothers and all his father’s house heard it, they went down there to him. And everyone who was in distress, everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was discontented gathered to him. So he became captain over them. And there were about four hundred men with him.

David departed to the cave of Adullam.

“3D army”
And everyone who was in distress, everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was discontented gathered to him.

Stress is number 1 killer.

Jesus is the greatest Son of David.

When we come to Jesus, we will be changed!

Look to the Lord! Magnify the Lord with us! Make God big big in our consciousness!

David has fears but the Lord delivered him from ALL his fear!!!

Whatever fear we have, put the key of David and God opened the DOOR to freedom from all our fears!!

When we look to the Lord, our faces SHINES!!

God will deliver me out of ALL my troubles!!!

The word Fear the Lord – is Worship the Lord!

Worship the Lord my God and Him only!!!

Taste and see that the Lord is good!!! There is no lack to those who fear (worship) Him!!

See GOOD! See many many good days!!!!
1 Peter 3:10
For
“He who would love life
And see good days,
Let him refrain his tongue from evil,
And his lips from speaking deceit.

Love life and see good dayssssss!!!!!

Love many good days in 2013!!!

Have a song in our heart! I will see many good dayssss in 2013!!!!
God promise!

The 3D army became mighty men!

2 Samuel 23:8-12
David’s Mighty Men
These are the names of the mighty men whom David had:Josheb- Basshebeth the Tachmonite, chief among the captains. He was called Adino the Eznite, because he had killed eight hundred men at one time. And after him was Eleazar the son of Dodo, the Ahohite, one of the three mighty men with David when they defied the Philistines who were gathered there for battle, and the men of Israel had retreated. He arose and attacked the Philistines until his hand was weary, and his hand stuck to the sword. The Lord brought about a great victory that day; and the people returned after him only to plunder. And after him was Shammah the son of Agee the Hararite. The Philistines had gathered together into a troop where there was a piece of ground full of lentils. So the people fled from the Philistines. But he stationed himself in the middle of the field, defended it, and killed the Philistines. So the Lord brought about a great victory.

They transformed !! From complaining and depressed to mighty men!!

Don’t back down, stand our ground ! Jesus died to give me the victory!!

Something happen in the cave when David met the 3D army. They look to the Lord and worship the Lord and be conscious of Jesus and not themselves!

God wants to set many people free from fear right now!!

The Lord knows n He cares and wants to set us free!

Lets worship Him now. He turn in the door with His key!! He can shuts where professional cannot shuts
