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!
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.
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.
“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.
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)
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!!!
