Treasure and Pearls
God blesses where there is faith. Where He finds faith.
It is the Word of God that heals!
God is not a respecter of person. God is a respecter of faith. He blesses where there is faith. Faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of God.
Every time we hear a testimony, remember the fine point of the testimony and go and tell the person who is in the similar trial.
Without faith it is impossible to please God.
In whom we also have an inheritance. I have an inheritance! Inheritance is something that comes to me not by our effort or a accomplishment. It is got nothing to do with me, but to do with the Giver!
Our blessings must affect us in the here and now! In the daily life!
Make sure whatever we give to someone, it is worth it.
Don’t share truth beyond their capabilities to receive. They see yet they don’t see. They hear yet they don’t understand.
God sees 3 categories – Jew, Gentile or Church
We are all gentile physically. But spiritually we are church! The Lord Jesus Christ is returning!
Kingdom was rejected. God is not finished with Israel.
Sea is a type of nation of the world.
Jesus shared 4 parables by the seaside.
There r still grace for Israel.
The Parable of the Hidden Treasure
“ Again, the kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.
The Parable of the Pearl of Great Price
“ Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls, who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it.
Treasures is not salvation. No one can buy salvation. Jesus is not the pearl of great price. He is talking about kingdom here. Jesus came to Israel, the earthly people. The pearl of great price is the people
Israel is God’s people. They have a covenant with God. They are beloved for the Father’s sake
Spend time with Jesus. Have bible teaching that warms your heart.
Jesus died for the field not just the pearls.
Jesus’ back was one huge stripe. Only bones could be seen. This is how much Jesus loves us!
Giving yourself – many a time it is listening.
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.
Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands, and that He had come from God and was going to God, rose from supper and laid aside His garments, took a towel and girded Himself. After that, He poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded. Then He came to Simon Peter. And Peter said to Him, “Lord, are You washing my feet?”
Jesus answered and said to him, “ What I am doing you do not understand now, but you will know after this.”
Peter said to Him, “You shall never wash my feet!”
Jesus answered him, “ If I do not wash you, you have no part with Me.”
Simon Peter said to Him, “Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head!”
Jesus knew He had everything from the Father, He laid aside His garment and wash the disciples’ feet. He is secure.
Proud people are to be pitied. They feel very empty.
Jesus came, He touched the sick and the sick got what He got. He is a Hero!
The extend of your love is the extend of your anger.
When Jesus is angry, beauty comes out. When God is jealous, is because He knows if we idolise, we will be hurt.
Born again once and forever!!
Jesus said to him, “ He who is bathed needs only to wash his feet, but is completely clean; and you are clean, but not all of you.” For He knew who would betray Him; therefore He said, “ You are not all clean.”
We are completely cleaned! It is by the blood!
This cleansing is health producing!
We are washing our feet!
Dust is devil’s food. Don’t allow dust to gather at our feet. Keep feeding on the Word and be cleansed!
Husband loves your wife just as Christ. Always set her apart from the world. It is the way u speak to her. When u talk to her, u tell her she is beautiful.
Every time u open the bible, u allow Jesus to speak to u! It is a daily washing!
God tells us we are ALREADY forgiven, now be like it. We ALREADY are, now work it out. It is easy to work out what we ALREADY are!
Results means God loves the people. It does not mean the preacher was right. Moses interpreted angry God. He spoilt the typology by hitting the rock twice. God asked Moses to hit the rock once. God hears and sees the people’s thirst.
God is angry with people making God as angry.
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 we don’t lose our temper so much, we are more priestly. We always regret what we say out of anger.
Jesus never makes us feel old. The church is not one day through continuous process, but the church ALREADY without spot and wrinkle. Present tense already glorious and young!!
Jesus never sees old!
We will always be a child in His eyes.
Learn to play again and dream again!!
Jesus looks at us in the spirit. We are what we are in the spirit!
Fall in love by speaking good words to each other.
Jesus gives us whatever sap He has. Is a picture of affirmation.
Speak and wash with the words.
Repent and do the first works. Start doing what we did before in dating. Start complimenting her!
Fell out of love by speaking and pointing out bad things to each other. U r never too busy for each other.
Start reading the bible again. Learn to laugh again!
Listen without judging. Listen with grace.
The pearl is not the treasure and the treasure is not the pearl.
The field is the world. Jesus died for the whole world.
Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
God’s Righteousness Through Faith
But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus
Jesus died for all but is only upon all those who believe. Salvation only comes to those who believe!
Jesus died for the entire world. The salvation is effective on those who believe!
