Jesus is my Shepherd

Jesus is my Shepherd!

The church is where 2 or 3 gather in Jesus’ name.

When we worship God with our hands raised, angels are around us. The church is larger than what we see right now! The angels are here to minister to us. We are the heir of salvation. The angels have protected us and kept us.

They have come to obey Jesus!! The more we see Jesus the more we enjoy and transformed.

All true change is effortless.

God’s purpose is for us to conform in the image of Jesus.

God foreknew who will be here and accept Jesus. God don’t make us to accept. He don’t touch our free choice. God foreknew how we will use our free choice. Those received Christ, He foreknew that we are predestined to be transformed like Jesus!

There is no man like Jesus!

When Jesus is strong He will not hurt me. When our loved ones correct us is because He loves us!

Our Lord Jesus is been revealed more and more today!

God’s favour and peace multiply in our lives!!

Shalom is perfect well-being! When you feel alive, that is shalom!!

Picture of good shepherd. Shepherd and His flock.

A biz man had lost of ideas. He meditated on Psalm 23 and his biz turned around and he was made millionaire.

The Lord is my Shepherd and i shall not be in lack!

Psalm 22, is oh my God why have they forsake Me..
This speaks of Jesus on the cross

Psalm 24 speaks of the King of Glory shall come in.

We are not in Psalm 22 or 24, we are in 23!

The Lord IS my Shepherd. He is still IS! We will not lack. We are the richest person on planet earth! We are not lacking for peace or rest.

Jesus said He has come that I may have life and have it more abundantly.

Psalms 10:10-11
So he crouches, he lies low,
That the helpless may fall by his strength.
He has said in his heart,
“God has forgotten;
He hides His face;
He will never see.”

The abundant life is to see Jesus as our Shepherd.

Psa 23
PSALM 23
The Lord the Shepherd of His People
A Psalm of David.
The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord
Forever.

The greatest need in the body of Christ is FOOD!!!

Feed and be patient. Something comes by growth. The greatest need is food!!

Good food will produce.
Rest is needed

When the sheep has food and rest, he will not lack!

Feed of the sheep will produce pathway. They walk around in circles and this is what Psalm 23 meant by walk in the path of righteousness.

We have a positive expectation to end up in HOPE!

We still need to go to same truth. But every time we go through the path, it is slightly higher.

1 Kings 4:32
He spoke three thousand proverbs, and his songs were one thousand and five.

The song of songs celebrate the love of Christ!

We love the things that belong to our beloved. Lack of love to one another is because we lack of love to Jesus.

God made this universe! You live in this body. Don’t check out too early. Take care of your body.

Jesus loves me like a bridegroom. It is always so fresh!! As a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, the Lord rejoices over me!!!

He only has eyes for me.

Love is not a feeling, is a work 🙂

If you can be kind to stranger, you can be kind to your family.

Shepherd and His flock
The gardener and His garden

David is a picture of Christ.

Myrrh is bitter – Suffering love

God made man like Himself.

We are a spirit being. There is a place to house us.

Universe is built in Time, Space and Matter.

Time has 3 parts- past, present and future! God is not restricted by time! God is the Lord of time! He made time! He can go to the past to heal our wounds for us. He can go future to path our future for us!

He is our I Am. He is the Lord of time! He created miracle when He turned water to wine. For wine to be used, the Israel has to wait for 7 years.

There are 7 signs in the gospel of John. The 1st one He turned water to wine!!

Anything you can plant on this earth, you can plant in Israel.

The lowest place on earth is Israel, the Dead Sea. Jesus can compress time!!

The Lord is the Lord of Space!

Noble man’s son was healed. Jesus said go your way, your son lives. The son was not with Him and He healed him. Jesus is not restricted by space.

Jesus multiplied 5 loaves and 2 fish. This is matter! He is the Lord of matter!

The One who was, the One who is, and the One who is to come!!

He is the One who is existing and continue to exist!

When you come to Jesus, don’t worry about time, space and matter. The most important thing is come to Jesus!!

In and of ourselves we are sinful. He loves us in spite of our sins! He put His grace on us!!

Song of Songs 1:7-8
(To Her Beloved)
Tell me, O you whom I love,
Where you feed your flock,
Where you make it rest at noon.
For why should I be as one who veils herself
By the flocks of your companions?

(The Beloved)
If you do not know, O fairest among women, Follow in the footsteps of the flock, And feed your little goats
Beside the shepherds’ tents.

She is hungry for food. She is hungry for rest.

Jesus said come to me, I will rest you.

She is hungry for food and rest. And the good Shepherd come and rest her.

Follow the flock and you will be fed. If you want more feeding, feed!!

Individual sheep are the one that get attacked. Follow the flock!!

Jesus spoke the word and the fishermen caught the fish!

We put Jesus in the centre because He is altogether lovely!!!

Find someone to feed!! Feed them! Give them food!!! Feed them with the Word!! This is bread that satisfy!!

If you want feeding, follow the footstep of the flock!!

The Lord is my Shepherd, i shall not be in lack!!

Hungry sheep is always around. Feed them!!!

When Jesus rose from the dead, He made breakfast!!

The biggest concern for Jesus was His flock.

Jesus told Peter 3 times, feed My lamb, tend my sheep, feed my sheep. Lamb are younger believers
Tend is not just feed but protect.
Sheep, the older believers.

Jesus chose Peter, although he failed last time. He will heal our wings and we can fly much higher and better with His restoration!!

The matchless love of our Lord Jesus! He always restore us with quality.

Isaiah 40:11
He will feed His flock like a shepherd;
He will gather the lambs with His arm,
And carry them in His bosom,
And gently lead those who are with young.

Jesus did not see them as rebellious. He saw them hungry and tired because they are like sheep without shepherd.

See ourselves with the eyes of Jesus. He is kinder than I think. His kind heart is kindest beyond all measure.

Matthew 9:36
But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.

The church is a place where sheep are gathered and we unite to one Shepherd.

Lechem-bread
Lachem -fight feed

The best way to fight against the devil is to feed on the Bread! We are fighting FROM victory.

We sit at Jesus’ feet and eat!!

Stand because it is victory ground!!

We are healthy, not trying to achieve, but we are and have health. It is easier to stay healthy knowing we have health and not trying to get health!!

We all make time for what is important. The Lord is able to multiply time!

We are salt. We make people thirsty in the world.

Luke 11:11-13
If a son asks for bread from any father among you, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish? Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!”

The Father wants to give us good things!

Put our mind on the bright side of life. Look out to the window and see the stars and not mud! mud will pass away but stars stay forever!!

Who so look, live! Look to the bronze serpent!! Simplest thing in the world is looking. It is the Person we look at that is important. Divine health is better than divine healing!

The manna is the picture of heavenly food! Don’t look down on the manna. We eat champion food!

Enjoy the food that comes from God and we will be kept healthy!!

The positive side of ministry –
Bread, Fish and Egg

Bread is any teaching – systematic teaching on the bible, expounding Christ.Shepherd feeds the flock with bread. Bread is Himself!

Fish depicts application. Bread without fish is not enjoyable food.

Take time with Jesus.
Jesus always rejoice over me!
It is always fresh!!
Sense of heaven about me! It is application!!
God make fish that has fins that filter the dirty pollution.

Egg is something we sit on it, meditate on it. We get food after the incubation.

Meditate on something you get from preaching.

The negative side of ministry-
Stone, Snake and Tail

Instead of bread, stone is the negative side.

Stone – you get condemned, stone threw on you. You cannot get nutrition from stone.
Stone can kill.

Don’t preach out of anger.

Fish instead – snake

Snake – poison is in the mouth. Instead of teaching God’s word, they are preaching something else. Cast doubts.

Egg instead – tail
The poison in the tail. They kill everything that is good. Implying that not everyone get saved. The sting comes in at the end. Be careful of that!

Children that are corrected grow up strong.

Be in the ministry of Bread, Fish and Egg.

Stay away from ministry of Stone, Snake and Tail!

You need more than just food, you need Jesus’ protection!!!

You need the Lord!!
In feeding you are fed!

Is it hard to talk about someone you love?

Behold Jesus, grace multiplied!

Behold Jesus, grace multiplied!

Justification by faith!

There is something powerful about the gospel.
It is the power of God unto our salvation. Salvation is soundness, wellness, well-being. The power of God is the Gospel.

The challenge we have is we are not hearing the gospel Paul preached. Paul was been attacked for the gospel he preached.

It is preservation, wholeness health for the life we live in the earth.

In this gospel is the righteousness og God revealed.

Justification by faith! This is the gospel. This is not new to the world and to Paul when he preached that.

Don’t preach another Jesus.

Fear and unbelief is sin. The 1st 2 are the fearful and unbelieving in revelation that went into the fire.
Jesus appeared in the midst.

Fear is sin, yet Jesus appeared in their midst and showed them peace.

It is not as what some people who preached that when u r in sin, Jesus goes away.

A tax collector is like someone who betrayed his nation at that time. When Jesus called Mathew, he left everything and followed Him.

Jesus has come to be with us and never leave us nor forsake us!!

How do u hear God?
When Cain murdered his brother, God talked to Cain! The lamb’s blood was shed. Cain brought bloodless sacrifice. He believed in his own effort. The first murder was over religion effort.

People who focus on their own effort are like Cain.

It is all by grace we received!

Romans 16:25-26
Benediction
Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery kept secret since the world began but now made manifest, and by the prophetic Scriptures made known to all nations, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, for obedience to the faith—

Paul preached the gospel and he was misunderstood that Paul said let us sin more so that grace may abound.
Sin increasing and grace superabound!!!

Have more faith in what Christ has done than what Adam did.

God commanded that this gospel be revealed to all nation!!

Obedience is the root for all the blessings. God blesses us first and the fruit is obedient.

He never separate us according to our sins and make us get right before He will pray for us.

We are not righteous by performance we are righteous by what Christ has done!

Believe right and we will live right.

The righteous shall live by faith.

Romans 5:19
For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.

We sin because we are sinners. We are sinners because of Adam’s sin.

By one Man’s obedience, many will be made righteous!

Be focus on Jesus’ obedience!!! Don’t focus on our own obedience. Take our eyes off ourselves. It is not about me but about Jesus!!!

It is One Man’s obedience! We can always focus on His obedience.

We will not think of supplying Jesus but Jesus supplying us! When Jesus supply us, we have the power to supply.

The greatest teaching on worship is in John 4

A fallen woman, Jesus revealed the teaching of worship!

Jesus revealed Himself as Messiah!

Just a moment with Jesus and we are lifted out of ourselves!

A sinner has come and taken from Jesus and Jesus was refreshed and got stronger! He had food to eat we do not know of.

2 Corinthians 10:4-5
For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,

Devil wants us to take our minds away from our obedience.

We can bring our thoughts to Jesus’ obedience!!

If focus is on us, it is never enough!

Jesus don’t say” you are”…but used “I am…”

Don’t receive bad thoughts when it comes into our mind.

Don’t accept bad thoughts. Bad thoughts are not our thoughts.

The highest form of resistant is to ignore the devil.

Don’t focus on devil and keep rebuking him. Rebel against the devil!

Look away from ourselves, look to Jesus!!

Forgiveness of sin is the key!

Check Jesus out! We are all in Christ the sweet fragrance!!

Abounding grace to chief of sinners – a book title

The battle is in your mind.
Jesus was crucified at a place called Skull

1 John 4:17
The Consummation of Love
Love has been perfected among us in this:that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.

As He is so are we in this world! As He is healthy, so are we! We are transformed by beholding and not struggling!!

Beholding the glory of Jesus!! The way to have more grace in our lives is not to do more, but to behold Jesus and know more of Jesus!!! Perfect well-being! Multiplied by seeing Jesus more!!!

When Peter looked at Jesus, he became like who Jesus was, walking on water, supernatural. But when his eyes are away from Jesus, he fell.

Look to Jesus and holy spirit goes to work for us!

Look away from our problems and look to Jesus!!

As the high priest goes, so goes to the nation of Israel.

High priest represent the people. He goes to the holy of holies. If God accepts him, he comes out alive and the nation of Israel is prosperous! If the high priest does not come out, the nation is in trouble.

It is not how good the nation is, but how good Jesus is!!

Everything outward is visual aid for us on High Priest

Shoulder represent strength. When the shepherd found the lost sheep, he will find that one. He put it on his shoulder. We just have to rest on his strong shoulder. The sheep just rest. The shepherd did everything.

Repent means we consent to be carried, consent for Jesus to do everything for us.

Jesus has us in His heart.

Our names are engraved in the breastplate of high priest. It is engraved and not erased.

Everyone’s name are there, but when they come to the end of their life and do not receive Christ, then their names are blocked. It is not true for those already received Christ. Once received, forever saved!

Everyone of us are unique in our own way! God loves u individually!!

Jesus holds us as precious stones in Him! When stones are exposed to the light, the light shines on it and reflect His glory. The light of God shows how perfectly Jesus has removed our sins!

Holiness to the Lord! This is in hebrew on the high priest forehead.

Exodus 28:36-38
“You shall also make a plate of pure gold and engrave on it, like the engraving of a signet:
HOLINESS TO THE LORD.
And you shall put it on a blue cord, that it may be on the turban; it shall be on the front of the turban. So it shall be on Aaron’s forehead, that Aaron may bear the iniquity of the holy things which the children of Israel hallow in all their holy gifts; and

it shall always be on his forehead, that they may be accepted before the Lord.

God is not accepting me based on my thoughts, but accepting me based on the High Priest’ thoughts!
We are accepted because of Jesus’ thoughts!

As He is, so are we in this world!!!

We are struggling with our future’s thoughts. Sweat is a picture of stress, self-effort.

Luke 22:44
And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.

Extreme stress-sweat became blood.

Redeeming quality, we are been redeemed! The blood fell to the ground. Everywhere we go are favour ground!

Where i step is favour ground!!

In our holy gifts, there are still iniquity . The devil will come in and catch u for the thoughts. No! Look away! Jesus our High Priest takes care of this! As long as His thoughts are holy, God impute that into our accounts! He accessed us base on Jesus’ thoughts.

Accepted means favour!! (Ratzon-Favour)

Exodus 28:38
So it shall be on Aaron’s forehead, that Aaron may bear the iniquity of the holy things which the children of Israel hallow in all their holy gifts; and it shall always be on his forehead, that they may be accepted (ratzon-favour) before the Lord.

Every which way we turn Jesus we see glory!

He is altogether lovely!! There is a Hero above all! Jesus cannot disappoint us!

As He is, so are we in this world!!!

Jesus is the answer!

Jesus is the answer!

When u come into His presence u will NEVER leave the same! Today we come in the service, we believe what we hear and we will leave changed! We will leave free!

He can speak into our lives and our lives will never be the same!!!

Whatever we are faced with, God is at the point of our needs. Jesus is The Answer!!

What do u mean by Jesus is the answer?

Divine appointment we are in the service. Jesus is at the point of our need and He loves us!

Is the response. Let Jesus loves on us and embrace us!

Everything we need in our lives come from the revelation of Jesus Christ.

Our vision is to see Jesus! When we see Jesus, souls are blessed!

The answer is seeing Jesus!

1 Peter 1:10-16
Of this salvation the prophets have inquired and searched carefully, who prophesied of the grace that would come to you, searching what, or what manner of time, the Spirit of Christ who was in them was indicating when He testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ and the glories that would follow. To them it was revealed that, not to themselves, but to us they were ministering the things which now have been reported to you through those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven—things which angels desire to look into.
Living Before God Our Father
Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance; but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.”

Grace is not something fresh. Grace is God’s dream for us to live under His grace! To live by grace!

Grace can be used to Interchange with the word favour.

Unmerited favour! This favour must be experienced and that can empower us!!!

Grace produces empowerment. But grace is not defined as empowerment. Jesus died to give us grace.

God gave Joseph favour! There is a favour and grace that comes!

Esther found favour in the sight of everyone who looked on her.

Favour in old testament seems to come and go.

1 Peter 1:11
searching what, or what manner of time, the Spirit of Christ who was in them was indicating when He testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ and the glories that would follow.

They prophesied that favour will come on us and favour will stay!

With the favour of God, even we have nothing, we shall get the deal! All we need is the favour of God comes into our lives!!

God has given us favour! It is favour that we do not deserve! People who try to deserve it don’t get it!

1 Peter 1:12
To them it was revealed that, not to themselves, but to us they were ministering the things which now have been reported to you through those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven—things which angels desire to look into.

Nobody ever saw the ark except the high priest.

As long as they are in the ark, they are protected.

We see blue sky. Beyond the blue is our risen Saviour. Look beyond the blue, He is our answer! The glorified Man who represent u and me! He is our High Priest!

Loins is our reproductive systems. We don’t use loins for our mind. But this, it tells us that loins reproduce our thoughts.

Focus on Jesus! Protect our mind and make sure it reproduces favour. Calm and collected mind! Be cool!

Don’t let our thoughts go wild!

We tend to think about worse cos our minds are not focused on Jesus!

Hope to the end for the grace.

Revelation – unveiling of Jesus Christ!

1 Peter 1:13
Living Before God Our Father
Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought (referring to now Present Passive) to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;

1 Peter 1:13(YLT)
13 Wherefore having girded up the loins of your mind, being sober, hope perfectly upon the grace that is being brought to you in the revelation of Jesus Christ,

Is being brought to you!

When He is revealed, problem looks small to us!

1 Peter 1:14
as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance;

The more we are hungry to see Jesus, we are called obedient children!

People can’t trust God and therefore they steal.

When we don’t have revelation of Jesus, we end up in lust.

I want to be a person in the company who has the grace of God on me!

When people go to the Casino, they go not because of the quality of life they are looking for. U can’t tell day or night there. It is the money they want. It is not the money they want. They want what they think money can bring. They think the money will give them the quality of life.

They are many poor people with plenty of money. Their money is a lot but their quality is so little. They hardly sit together for communion. This is poor life.

Jesus comes that we may have life and have it more abundantly!!! Jesus is The Life!!

We are not smart and Christ is our wisdom. Christ is our holiness and righteousness!

If we depend on our effort, it is very limited.

If we look to Jesus, He will lead me and avoid all the pit falls. We will still be fresh! Give glory to Jesus!

Jesus will be our rear guard!

Pillar of cloud was there. At the red sea, the pillar of cloud went behind and faced the enemy. It became darkness to the enemy but light to the children of God!

Those who believe in grace ends up holy!

God showed Moses the tree. Bitter water became sweet. Jesus was revealed.

All needs are met. The greater always include the lesser.

Look away from our needs to see Jesus Christ!

Christ is in the crisis!!

Listen to messages that are full of Jesus! Fresh grace n revelation is being brought to me!
One thing is needful! Spend time with Jesus!

Jesus unveil Yourself.

Look! There is no effort involved. Look away from our problems. Look at the bronze serpent! Bronze is a picture of judgement. He took our pain and He was punished in our place!!

Devil blinds people’s mind from the glorious of Jesus!

Our Jesus is altogether lovely!!

The root and offspring of David. He produces David and comes from David’s seed.

2 Peter 1:1-9
Greeting the Faithful
Simon Peter, a bondservant and apostle of Jesus Christ,
To those who have obtained like precious faith with us by the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ:
Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
Fruitful Growth in the Faith
But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self- control, to self- control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.

Grace and peace be multiplied to us!

It is not do more it is see more!! See more of Jesus! Shalom is well-being. It is health!!

Life is good! U r experiencing Shalom!

Shalom multiply in our lives! It is seeing more of Jesus!!!

Hearing more and seeing more!!

Grace and peace multiply, In the knowledge of God Jesus our Lord!!

It is not just one area. Quality of life! True life is found in Christ. Favour can be increased in our lives!

Those who see more of Jesus, He responded differently. All of us have righteousness but different nearness to Jesus. John believed that Jesus loves him. Jesus loves those who believe that He loves them.

Jesus has more pleasure when His children believes that He wants to give them more favour!

Knowledge – accurate revelation knowledge from God!!

Show me more of Jesus!!

When we have Jesus, the warnings will be kept and the do’s will be in placed.

Epignosis- precise and accurate knowledge.
All things pertain to life and Godliness. His divine power gives us all things!! Through the knowledge of Him!

Grace, peace! Hungry for Christ! It is unveiling of Jesus Christ in the scripture!!!

People who are not at peace gives trouble.

We want our people to be united. Yet we do not know how to go about unity. We cannot be united around a project.

Unity – the key is –

Our heart – (singular) when they heard Jesus being expounded, their heart became one in unity!! Lift Jesus Christ up!!

Jesus wanted His disciples to see Him in the bible and not to see Him physically.

Luke 24:32
And they said to one another, “Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while He opened the Scriptures to us?”

Focus on Jesus! Jesus is the centre!! Unity, one heart to see Jesus’ beauty!!

One heart is one spirit!

We don’t lie or cheat to get the opinion of others.

If a christian forgotten that he is forgiven, he lacks!

Be forgiveness-conscious and not sin-consciousness. Forgiveness-consciousness see clearly!

We are in the days where there are major transition going on. To every church, Jesus revealed Himself fresh

When God open the door, no one can shut. When He shut the door, no one can open.

Jesus knows each of our delights. Jesus gives us blessings that we need. He knows to put the right key for our blessings! He knows our hearts more than what we know our hearts.

John 9:1-8
Chapter 9
A Man Born Blind Receives Sight
Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth. And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”
Jesus answered, “ Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him. I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”
When He had said these things, He spat on the ground and made clay with the saliva; and He anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay. And He said to him, “ Go, wash in the pool of Siloam” (which is translated, Sent). So he went and washed, and came back seeing.
Therefore the neighbors and those who previously had seen that he was blind said, “Is not this he who sat and begged?”

Don’t judge people based on their sin.

Grace came at the revelation of Jesus!

1 Samuel 3:1-4
Now the boy Samuel ministered to the Lord before Eli. And the word of the Lord was rare in those days; there was no widespread revelation. And it came to pass at that time, while Eli was lying down in his place, and when his eyes had begun to grow so dim that he could not see, and before the lamp of God went out in the tabernacle of the Lord where the ark of God was, and while Samuel was lying down, that the Lord called Samuel. And he answered, “Here I am!”

When Hanah (grace) was in front of Eli, Eli did not see it. He misinterpreted grace.
Eli’s eyes began to be dim and cant see. This represent the leadership is blind and forgotten.

Eli was not able to discern when Grace Hanah was in front of him.

Candlestick removal is local church will not be a testimonial.

Candlestick will be put on stand where everyone can see! Don’t come against grace! Jesus died to give us grace!

I am abundant of grace! Jesus call me by name! He is very personal!!!

Grace will come into our lives! Grace will bring all things pertain to life!!

Overcoming the lives of “if only’

Overcoming the lives of “if only’
Mid-week service

Keep adding truth to the truth and keep growing in the truth. So may Christian focus on how much they love Jesus. See ourselves in the Beloved. We are accepted and chosen!

John 11:3
Therefore the sisters sent to Him, saying, “Lord, behold, he whom You love is sick.”

We are chosen and we just need to receive.

John 11:6
So, when He heard that he was sick, He stayed two more days in the place where He was.

Jesus love him but He did not go straightaway. This is because His timing is always right! We don’t understand why God does not move in what we think and when we think He should move.
Why did God wait till the Egyptians then He opened the Red Sea? He wanted to drown the Egyptians. He wants to drown our problems. Just follow God and He will turn things around for our good!

John 11:16
Then Thomas, who is called the Twin, said to his fellow disciples, “Let us also go, that we may die with Him.”

What God is really doing in our hearts and in our minds?

When Jesus got to where Lazarus was and they said, “if only…”

John 11:21
Now Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died.

John 11:24-25
Martha said to Him, “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.”
Jesus said to her, “ I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.

The word I Am means to stand up and recover. Jesus said I am the Resurrection and the Life! Jesus is our Stand Up and Recover.

A lot of people want to put God in the past and future but never want to deal with the present.

John 11:27
She said to Him, “Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.”
– This is future and not present.

If we walk in the past and it is like drinking poison and expecting others to die.

Jesus waited. Jesus healed. Jesus ministers to me. Jesus sees people valuable and precious!
Jesus wept over Jerusalem.

John 3:16
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Everlasting life is outside of time!

4 days, Lazarus was not just dead, he was dead dead and dead.

Sometimes we run into situation without knowing He heard us! It might be night hour or we facing the Red Sea, but He is always on time

A little boy named David was in trouble. It looked like checkmate but the king still has his move!

The King still has one last move, when Jesus said it is finished, the devil thought he had checkmate, but he did not know God has His final move!

Testimony
He was ill in bed, he never been ill for so long.. One day long. He never been sick. He asked for medicine for his chest. The next morning he phoned his doctor to come and see him. His doctor asked him to go down to see a surgeon. He went thru a machine and came out. He said he has never examine someone like this who is alive! He went into operating theatre. He put the surgeon hand on his chest and prayed for God to anoint the doctor.
A miracle miracle. He is the only person who function normally at this condition!

If he has gone earlier or later, he would not be using the doctor God wanted to.
As he was going to close him in the operation, he heard a voice said keep going on. God can use non-Christian.

Old things has passed away and everything has become new!
We are saved by grace! Everything is grace!

There is no failure that is fatal with God.
There is no condemnation. We have been made righteous.
