Resurrection Sunday

Resurrection Sunday

Jesus ate after He resurrected! Our new body would be transformed like His body. We would not feel tired or bored and would be forever healthy in our transformed body.

God wants the universe to be the playground of His children. In our new body we would be more alive than we are alive right now!

God counts dead as an enemy. God made man to be forever young and abundance in supply. But here we have, the earth fallen. God wanted man to love Him because man chose to.

Every single food was good in the garden. Everything plus that tree was good.
For free choice to be free choice, God has to have one tree that is not good for man for man to choose.

God cannot control the result of your choice. Result is result.

It is not God’s will for man to die.

The gift of God is Jesus Christ our Lord!

He lived a perfect sinless life on Earth!

Why did God raise Jesus from the dead?

God raised Jesus for our justification.

Ephesians 2:4-7
But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

God is not rich in anger. When God is angry, it is His foreign act.

God is love! It is never God is wrath.

The heart of God is full of compassion.

God did not deliver them because they are good but because He is good!

Covenant was depending on who God is.

Man presumed on his righteousness.

God is saying if u want me to bless u assess u based on your goodness, u better don’t come near cos the mountain is Godly.

The goodness of God will lead people to repentance.

If you break one law, u r guilty of all!

The law stands together as a composite whole.

The law was given by Moses, grace and truth came by Jesus! The truth that set us free is by grace!

God was active and His people just need to rest. When man want to try and try, God rested and let man try. Then Jesus came.

Paul was Pharisee of pharisees.

Jesus never enter a funeral and not raise the dead to live.

Jesus’ joy may remain in us and fullness of joy in us.
Before Jesus went to the cross, He spoke to the disciples about His joy in us! The joy of the Lord is our strength! Is His joy, and not our joy!

The joy of the Lord is us! The joy of finding the treasure Jesus gave everything! He was the One who came to us! He gave everything and His life to buy us!

Jesus did not come to make bad people good. He came to make dead people live!

By grace we have been saved!!

There are people who died young, old, poor and rich. But they are all dead! Don’t compare with how “much””deader” we are.

God put us in Christ! When He sees us today, is in all His health and glory! God pours His grace on Christ!
God raised Jesus from dead and we are in Christ!

We are seated with Christ!

That (hina-in order that) in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

The age of the church on earth period!

When God raised Jesus from dead, He used the greatest power He has.

There are a lot of words for power in Hebrew.

Miracle power – dynamo
Divine energy
Inherit power
Power that is released

Ephesians 1:16-23
do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers: that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.
And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.

Power – Dunamis

What can a dead man do to qualify for a resurrection power? He cannot even lift a finger. We don’t receive because we tried too much.

Over managing, over parenting.

The law said u must not u must not..
In grace God said I do I do I do!

The greatest thing to inherit resurrection power is not doing anything. We are doing too much!

If Jesus is not in the scene, then we do nothing, nothing will happen.

If Jesus is in the scene, He will do everything! We do nothing, He will enjoy everything!

Why do u worry about clothing? Look at the lilies of the valley, how they grow? They toil not, neither do they spin.

Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like these lilies.

God does not cloth people with strong faith only. We will be better clothed than Solomon in all his glory!

Take no thought and we will be very well-clothed.

Clothing of lilies come from within. We cannot buy health.

Fitness and health are two different things. Health are from the Lord!

Don’t worry! With little faith, our Father in heaven will clothed us!

Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. Learn about the gift of righteousness and all will be ADDED to us!

The more we worry the more supply stops.

God rich in mercy. When we don’t pray we lose out. God is ever-giving!

When we pray we get into the waterfall.

God does not need to be persuaded.

The cross is a expression of God’s love and grace.

Our sins are been paid for! God always is love!!

If we don’t pray we miss out.

Keep receiving what God is giving.

Romans 4:22-25
And therefore “it was accounted to him for righteousness.”
Now it was not written for his sake alone that it was imputed to him, but also for us. It shall be imputed to us who believe in Him who raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead, who was delivered up because of our offenses, and was raised because of our justification.

“Because of ” – dia
Dia means through the channel of, by means of , on an account of

There was a time “time” began.

7 years is the beginning of good wine. The longer wine is, the better it gets.

Jesus turns the water to wine. Wine speaks of joy. In an instant, Jesus turn water to wine.

Jesus can compress time! He can change time!!

The cross is outside time!
God forgive us all!!

Our sin did not escape! We are forgiven because our sins are judged!!

Holiness is a fruit! The more we rest, the more God work.
Fall back into His arms.

Is Jesus facing my stress. Is Jesus facing! The more we rest, the more He flows!!

Start head, mind, mouth and walk!

There is no such thing as forgiven little. All of us broke 10 commandments. We are forgiven much!! All of us are 100% sinners.

God saw our sins in details.

We are forgiven because our sins are judged and not escaped!

Every strokes fell upon Jesus! Every depression fell upon Him for 3 hours until Jesus cried finished! The heaven cleared!
Darkness covered and Jesus called My God, but when it is finished, Jesus called My Father!

We are declared righteous, God raised Jesus from dead!!

If we are not declared righteous, Jesus would not be raised from the dead.

Resurrection is a divine receipt!

John 20:19-20
The Apostles Commissioned
Then, the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, “ Peace be with you.” When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord.

The first word that came out when He was resurrected was Peace!

Jesus died from a broken heart, so that ours will be mended.

Do we understand or not? We don’t understand, we cannot receive the peace!

Romans 4:25
who was delivered up because of our offenses, and was raised because of our justification.

All disease is dis-ease

Don’t take everything as theory only. You may sin, but it will not take u away from righteousness position before God!

A broken heart was a price Jesus paid.

Jesus loves us so much, by His stripe we are healed! There is no other ways to be saved than by Jesus’ death and resurrection!

True grace!

True grace produces true holiness!

Scandal of Grace – a wonderful song

Jesus never compromise His beautiful standard yet He was perceived as scandalous.

Luke 7:31-32
And the Lord said, “ To what then shall I liken the men of this generation, and what are they like? They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling to one another, saying:
‘ We played the flute for you,
And you did not dance;
We mourned to you,
And you did not weep. ’

Jesus is Jehovah! Jesus came with grace. His ministry was a ministry of music and dance yet no one rejoiced.

Luke 7:33-50
A friend of tax collectors and sinners. (Tax collectors in those days had to renounce their families when they are tax collectors. They are pronounced as someone not of their country and considered as social outcast and not even allowed to be in temple)

This phrase came from His critics.

Whoever think they are forgiven much will love much. But those who think they are forgiven little will love little.

Luke 7:36
A Sinful Woman Forgiven
Then one of the Pharisees asked Him to eat with him. And He went to the Pharisee’s house, and sat down (reclined, not sat down) to eat.

He did not feel welcome in the Pharisee’s house. They invited Him as a Teacher n He went in as a Teacher. Those who invited Him as a Saviour, He felt at home!
How we perceive Him affects!!

When people see Jesus, they are transformed!!!

The tax collector had the desire to see Jesus and climbed on the tree! He had the heart to see Jesus. He wanted to have the glimpse of Jesus and Jesus gave him full day by inviting Himself to his house!

Matthew 9:9-12
Matthew the Tax Collector
As Jesus passed on from there, He saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax office. And He said to him, “ Follow Me.” So he arose and followed Him.
Now it happened, as Jesus sat at the table in the house, that behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and sat down with Him and His disciples. And when the Pharisees saw it, they said to His disciples, “Why does your Teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?”
When Jesus heard that, He said to them, “ Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick.

It has got nothing to do with who we are and what we have when Jesus called us to follow Him. It is grace!

He invited tax collectors and sinners. Jesus sat down with them and ate at the same table. The Pharisees saw and asked His disciples (instead of Jesus) why Jesus sat with the sinners.
The tax collectors and sinners welcomed Jesus as Saviour!

Jesus wants to save our bodies, friendship, life…He never stop saving us! Once we see Him as Saviour, grace will save us!!

Jesus never taught the tax collector, but just ate at his house and he repented.

Behold! Means take note!
Luke 7:37-38
And behold, a woman in the city who was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at the table in the Pharisee’s house, brought (Greek-She brought as a payment) an alabaster flask of fragrant oil, and stood at His feet behind Him weeping; and she began to wash His feet with her tears, and wiped (keep on continuing) them with the hair of her head; and she kissed ( Kataphileo – kiss again and again tenderly) His feet and anointed them with the fragrant oil.

She kept on and did not cease. Kataphileo – kiss again and again tenderly

Jesus is the Son of a living God and He can save us!!!

True grace produces true holiness!

The son abides in the house. The servant does not.

God saved us by His grace and He did it righteously!

It is compromised grace if He forgives sinners without payment.
Every forgiveness is paid for! It is not only sacrificed, it is magnified! It is fully met on the cross!! Jesus provided the death on the cross!

Grace – God saw all our sins and they are all put on Jesus on the cross! God knows everything perfectly! Jesus was cursed and judged at the cross. Our sins did not escape!!

What comes out of the cross is God’s free favour, it is all paid for!!

If a grace church needs constant reminder..
We are “naturally” wanting to pay for things.

Grace must be received. Our efforts mean nothing. Jesus paid for it, will we receive it?

Jesus knows our thoughts! Jesus knows all about me and He loves me!

Jesus arrested Simon’s thoughts. Simon called Him teacher. He perceived Him as Teacher, and not Saviour.

Our estimation of Jesus always affect our reception.

Since Simon welcomed Jesus as Teacher, He taught him as a Teacher.

Luke 7:42
And when they had nothing with which to repay, he freely forgave them both. Tell Me, therefore, which of them will love him more?”

When grace is active – freely given!

Freely forgive-when grace is in action.

Luke 7:44-45
Then He turned to the woman and said to Simon, “ Do you see (blepo) this woman? I entered your house; you gave Me no water for My feet, but she has washed My feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head. You gave Me no kiss, but this woman has not ceased to kiss My feet since the time I came in.

See here is blepo – to see and discern mentally

She was a little girl, do u see her? Discern her. Somewhere along the way she was abused when she was young. Nobody sees. The Lord sees.

God sent His Son primarily as Saviour.

Do you discern the way Jesus sees her?

Hope we leave this place, seeing people differently.

We justify ourselves.

There are 3 miracles of resurrection recorded.

The 1st one was a 12 year old girl. (She just died and was raised)
The 2nd one was a boy (he died for a few hours)
The 3rd one was dead 4 days

Different levels of decay but all dead.

Jesus did not come to give religion. He came to make dead people live! Our hearts are beating but we were cut off from God and dead internally and spiritually. We don’t care! But the Lord cares!!!!

Luke 7:44-46
Then He turned to the woman and said to Simon, “ Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave Me no water for My feet, but she has washed My feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head. You gave Me no kiss, but this woman has not ceased to kiss My feet since the time I came in. You did not anoint My head with oil, but this woman has anointed My feet with fragrant oil.

Common things to do was to wash the guest’s feet when he come in.
But the Pharisees did not.

The reason why she loves Jesus much was because she knew she was forgiven much! Jesus forgave her already! She came to the house to show the result of forgiven much!!

The result of she loving much tells u she is saved.

Luke 7:47
Therefore I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven (perfect tense) , for she loved (aorist tense) much. But to whom little is forgiven (present tense), the same loves little.”

Aorist means past

There is little love for Jesus because we think of forgiveness as present tense. This is the mentality that people has. When they sin, they are looking at present tense forgiveness. They are not looking at the finality of forgiveness.

When the woman conscious she was accepted by Jesus, she brought her heart her person and her wealth to Jesus! alabaster is expensive and she brought to Jesus.

The finality of forgiveness. Jesus forgave once and for all!

God does not live in the future! God exist outside time!

God sees our ALL as the entire life.
The more we know we are forgiven, the more we love Jesus!!

Jesus spoke to the Pharisees about her work and when He talked to her was about her faith!!

Jesus pointed out her work to the spiritual leader.

The work of grace is we are in love with Jesus and we did not know we are producing fruits!

Luke 7:48
Then He said to her, “ Your sins are forgiven.” (Perfect tense)

Jesus reminded her that she is forgiven once and for all!

In the Greek perfect tense means it is done once and for all and it will never be repeated. Imperfect tense means it is done again and again

We have truly been saved! We have been forgiven!!! (Once and for all!!)

Preached our sins are forgiven once and for all! When we fall in love with Jesus, we fell out of love with sins!

Works are the results. Love makes the difference!

Keep things simple! Grace is not complicated! Christianity is not complicated.

Jesus’ disciples were fishermen. They can be taught, so can lawyers and housewives.

Luke 7:50
Then He said to the woman, “ Your faith has saved (once and for all!) you. Go in peace.”

We are saved once and for all!! We don’t need to be saved and re-saved!
The blood of bulls and goats in old testament could cover for one year! Jesus’ blood save us once and for all!!!

Try even if they fail. – this is success!

The lifestyle of sins, the work tells us his belief.

There is no way u can be saved and live in sin.

Go in peace -” in” is eis – into

Enter into shalom. Shalom means well-being.
No more diseases.

She got the expensive box as a payment when she worked. She lost a bit of her soul each time she got her pay. She saved her money for the box. She was crying out for normal life. She put her investment into the box. She poured to Jesus. She meant Jesus gave back her soul.

She sold her soul and Jesus bought it back for her! He gave her strength to stand again! She was once upon a time a little girl…

Be Real !

Be Real-Jesus loves me!

Jesus wants us to come to Him as who we are.

God’s righteousness and holiness cannot overlook sin. He sent His Son to die on our behalf. He knew it is going to be a great cost! God so loved us! Only the gospel can change people’s live. Only Jesus and His grace can!

John 21:1-14
3rd sunday after He rose from the dead. Sunday is a day we set aside for the Lord. Man enter into God’s rest and he can work.

For God is the source that is important.

The blessings of the Lord makes rich and add no sorrow to it! Sorrow is painful work cannot add to God’s blessings. When God blesses, we dont need all the painful labour.

Have u worked very hard and come out empty?

We are troubled by after we are saved, we see ourselves having challenges in our lives. We don’t like what we see in ourselves. Is the sin after u r saved that troubles u.

People who are not truly born again will not be troubled.

John 21:5-7
Then Jesus said to them, “ Children, have you any food?”
They answered Him, “No.”
And He said to them, “ Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some.” So they cast, and now they were not able to draw it in because of the multitude of fish.
Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his outer garment (for he had removed it), and plunged into the sea.

Come from the posture from favour!!

Why did Peter jump into water and went straight to Jesus?

Jesus prophesied His victory before Peter fell. Jesus prayed for Peter that his faith will not fail.

It was not sin-conscious that cause Peter to jump to the sea to reach Jesus.

There is something Peter knew about the Lord that he was not afraid to be alone with Jesus.

It was not the law that empower Peter to jump to see Jesus.

Peter knew Jesus loves him even when he failed. His faith tells him how much Jesus loves him even when he failed.

The thing Jesus treasured the most is Peter and His flock.

Where sin increased, grace superabound.

Those who feel loved will love. Those who are loved best will love best!

Luke 24:33-34
So they rose up that very hour and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven and those who were with them gathered together, saying, “The Lord is risen indeed, and has appeared to Simon!”

Has appeared to Simon

1 Corinthians 15:5
and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve.

Wherever we go, Health follows because Jesus is in it!

Luke 5:1-11

Fig gets its sweetness when it is ripe. There is a special kind of bees which will inject and deposit its eggs into the fig and the fig will be sweet after it is fermented.
We are the fig fruit. When we receive God’s word in us, our live becomes sweet b
Word of God – dabar (in hebrew)

Jesus revealed He is the Messiah to the woman with 5 husbands. She became a evangelist!

Jesus exposed her sins to show how much He loves her as who she is. To come as who she is.

Is the sense of His love that changes everything!

The Lord is fulfilled when u allow to be loved and given by Him. Is His joy! A woman came and took from Him and this energised the Lord!

Always interpret the word in the light of the finished work.

Matthew 27:3-5
Judas Hangs Himself
Then Judas, His betrayer, seeing that He had been condemned, was remorseful and brought back the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, saying, “I have sinned by betraying innocent blood.”
And they said, “What is that to us? You see to it!”
Then he threw down the pieces of silver in the temple and departed, and went and hanged himself.

God wants us to receive and not trying to do the work ourselves and get forgiven by own work.

Jesus is a friend of sinners. A friend of sinners.
Faith is seeing God as a Saviour.

John 21:11
Simon Peter went up and dragged the net to land, full of large fish, one hundred and fifty- three; and although there were so many, the net was not broken.

God makes man to operate by His love. This is how we become whole.

U come to Jesus with ur sins and yet u know He loves u still.

To know His love needs the holy spirit!
The sense of His love is growth!

The sense of His love brought Peter back. He wants us to see Jesus’ love.

U will never feel love if u put on a show. Jesus did not speak strong words against tax collectors and sinners .
Jesus spoke against those who are self-righteous.

Believe right and u will do right.

Is the sense of His love and grace that will change people’s lives!

U will never feel God’s love if u r pretending! Come to God as u are!

U can talk to God every time.

If anyone been in Christ he is a new creation. Don’t let ur sins hold u back from Jesus! See yourself loved by God!

He knows all about me. He has seen the worst! He is my friend and my Saviour!

Allow Jesus to lift up. Not us lifting ourselves up!

When u pretend to be what u r not, even the Lord loves u, u never feel loved.

U r a new creation and u still have sin in u, but bring it to Jesus! And realised He still loves u!

Faith remind u of who u r in Christ!

If u knew the giving God, u will ask Him!

Rest and let Christ do it in us!

Come to God as honest as u can and u will feel His presence!

David told God everything.

He is the One who has the empowering power to transform me!

The woman with 5 husbands was afraid to be in public, but after she met with Jesus, she became evangelist and went out to witness!

1 Corinthians 15:9
For I am the least of the apostles, who am not worthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.

Ephesians 3:8
Purpose of the Mystery
To me, who am less than the least of all the saints, this grace was given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ,

Paul was growing in the Lord.

Grace is given to those who realised that they cannot in and of themselves. Is those who has none, Jesus gives all!

God is a Saviour and not a Judge to us.

1 Timothy 1:15
This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief.

The more he grows he sees he is imperfect. The more he sees how forgiven he has been!

We don’t have sinners’ perfection. There are still sins in our flesh. The sin is to magnify His grace.

Romans 5:8-9
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.

We are saved from God been angry with us again!

Rest in His love, believe in His grace and let His power empower us!

His righteousness never mean u r without any sin.

Proverbs 16:6
In mercy and truth
Atonement is provided for iniquity;
And by the fear of the Lord one departs from evil.

Mercy – hesed

True grace – grace and truth

Show true grace, grace will purged the iniquity!

The more u progress in Christian life, drive u to the loveliness to Jesus!

A beautiful Hymn written-
Before The throne of God
(http://youtu.be/4RpcF2TLJBs)

Blessed Assurance! A great High Priest whose name is Love! My name is graven on His hand. My name is written on His heart. I know that while in heaven He stands, no tongue can bids me then departs.

It was certain statement. Before the throne of God i have a strong and perfect plead! No tongue can command me from there to depart!

The bible said these things are written that we might know that we are saved!

I am eternally loved and eternally forgiven. He ever lives and pleads for me!

Leadership

Leadership

Build leadership on sure foundation and that is Jesus!

Our problems all these years come from Christian who has the same heavenly Father but not mother. Grace and Law.

When leaders are self promoting, something is wrong. The best leader don’t promote themselves.

Is the substance behind the word that matters.

Judges 9:7-21

Secure in what God has made us to be

God is bigger than 4 walls.

Anointing – Olive trees
Fig tree – sweet

Whenever there is a vacuum, there must be a leader

There are leaders who rule with diligent

God’s kind of leader feed! They dont threaten.

Leadership are not over people. Perspective is to lifting people up to God.

We are here to serve to serve better.

Ideas is always serving!

We are not pretending we are preaching the gospel straight!

No restriction of preaching the gospel. No mixture!

What makes leadership effective?

1 Corinthians 3:10-17
According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.
Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.

Foundation laid is Jesus Christ! Everything must be built on Jesus!!

The name is Jesus Christ!
Build on no other names.

Leaders know it is not about them.

God gives rewards!
The season of fire exposes our motive.

Season of good days are longer than the day of testing.

The day of fire will reveal what sort of work is built on.

1 Corinthians 3:12
Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw,

Fire touches and burn

Wood is always mankind. Wood represent mankind.
If we depend on our fleshly effect, it will burn out.

Pray n ask God for His favour. Bad things happen because they are too smart. Lets be more dependable on His grace. Wisdom is different.

Isaiah 40:7-8
The grass withers, the flower fades,
Because the breath of the Lord blows upon it;
Surely the people are grass.
The grass withers, the flower fades,
But the word of our God stands forever.”

People of the world depends on human smart and they just fade.

Grass refer to people and flower belongs to glory.
The most famous of them are just like flowers and they dried up.

Build on gold silver n precious stones!

If our trust is always in finished work it is secure!

Foundation of Jesus Christ, the golden board! Rest easy our foundation are solid silver based on the sure work of Jesus Christ!

We are built on the solid work of Jesus! Before we can fall, He must fall first! But Jesus won’t fall!

Don’t behold the “wood” in your brother’s eyes.

On Jesus’ heart is you and me!
Precious stones! All of us are precious stones! See people as precious stones.

Build on grace and we receive the reward!

Rewards are not gifts n blessings. Rewards is something He gives us in grace to do and He rewards us when we do that something.

1 Corinthians 3:17
If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.

Defiles n destroy are same greek word (Phtheiro) – Fault doctrine
The day of fire will burn it up.

Is the mercy and grace of God for His people.

Too good to be true is the gospel!

Right living comes out from right believing.

God is watching over His people!

If a person preaches and point to Jesus, that person will be rewarded.

Build on Jesus and not always a “I” and “I”. Don’t corrupt people’s faith.

1 Corinthians 6:15-20
Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not! Or do you not know that he who is joined to a harlot is one body with her? For “the two,” He says, “shall become one flesh.” But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him.
Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.

We are the vine and we flow.

We are not called to produce the fruit but to bear the fruit!!

One spirit with Him!
Don’t trust your flesh. Don’t expose ourselves to temptation.

Preaching the truth and the truth will set us free!

Positive faith is believing Jesus for good.
Negative faith is believing for bad things to happen. U r expecting punishment. Root cause is guilt.

See all our sins been punished at the cross.

This is peace and shalom!

Our body is the temple of God! We are bought at a price!! Glorify God in our body and spirit.

Man who trust in their own works will fade.

The word of our word stands forever!
It is repeated in

1 Peter 1:23-25
having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever, because
“All flesh is as grass,
And all the glory of man as the flower of the grass.
The grass withers,
And its flower falls away,
But the word of the Lord endures forever.” Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you.

Is the gospel of grace that the word of God stands forever! Only One name will stand! Jesus the centre of our lives!

It is not the word of condemnation! It is the word which by the gospel the gospel of grace is preached to you!

Sanctify – Be uncommon!

Sanctify – To Make Holy!

John 17:14-17
I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.

We have the love of the Father. What is the world compared to been loved by the Father!

Key to been champion is to be sanctified by the truth! To be holy is the meaning as to be set apart. It also means to be uncommon!

Simply to be holy! Jesus makes us holy! To have the love of our Father!

He has made us uncommon!

When the world is in the midst of difficult, we said too blessed to be stressed!

When people of the world said must strive than can win, the people of God’s children said must pray than can win!

Believe and be set apart and be uncommon!! Jesus is the most powerful of all!

Sanctified set apart and uncommon! We are an uncommon church! I am a holy people! I belong to an uncommon church!!

We lead on Jesus and trust in Him! We are Jeremiah 17 ‘s people!

We are people marked by God and set apart, holy!

How does God reveal His holiness to us?

Exodus 15:11
“Who is like You, O Lord, among the gods?
Who is like You, glorious in holiness,
Fearful in praises, doing wonders?

We praise Him awesomely because He is good!

We fear and tremble in His goodness

We worship God and tremble at the wonders He performs!

The Lord parted the red sea and His people crossed on the dry land! We always expect God to do wondrously for us!!

God is raising uncommon people. We are uncommon in what we expect from God! Abraham believed God, that what God promised He is able to perform!

David had covenant with God and His consciousness was he is His beloved and he won! Jesus sanctified me!

I expect good from God! This is uncommon!!

He set us apart by His word! Sanctify by His truth

The word of His grace!

Acts 20:32
“So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.

How uncommon are we? We always expect good because of Jesus! We always expect to be favored!

Psalms 5:12
For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous;
With favor You will surround him as with a shield.

We can rest and receive all that He died and gives to us!

We are a magnet, not a rusty nail! The Lord will open to us His good treasure!!

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.

We don’t run after blessings, blessings run after us!!

I am a blessing magnet! Blessings hunt me down!!!

The Lord will open to us His good treasure and sign for us with His signature!!

What Jesus said and promised He will perform!

What are we saying to ourselves? Always speak God’s word to ourselves and to our situations the Word of God!

Just believing and speaking, God can work on our behalf!

2 Kings 4:25-26
And so she departed, and went to the man of God at Mount Carmel.
So it was, when the man of God saw her afar off, that he said to his servant Gehazi, “Look, the Shunammite woman! Please run now to meet her, and say to her, ‘ Is it well with you? Is it well with your husband? Is it well with the child? ’”
And she answered, “ It is well.”

Even if ur soul is in great distressed, it is ok. U dont have to say what u see, speak what u wanna see! Say it is well!

2 Kings 4:27
Now when she came to the man of God at the hill, she caught him by the feet, but Gehazi came near to push her away. But the man of God said, “Let her alone; for her soul is in deep distress, and the Lord has hidden it from me, and has not told me.”

Speak and expect good and we shall see GOOD!!

This year God will open His good treasures to us and expect good!!
