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.
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.
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!!
