  • Today we celebrate Singapore’s 57th day of independence! We are blessed to be living in such a great nation. Pastor Prince encourages us to honor what we have and the leaders in our nation.
  • When we are conscious of the goodness of God manifested as blessings in our lives, we can remain joyful. 
  • “nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is in your midst.
    —Luke 17:21 NIV
  • During our Lord Jesus’s earthly ministry, He was always conscious of heaven. Likewise, we ought to be heavenly-minded and bring the consciousness of heaven’s supply to people around us. Because we have Christ, heaven is all around us. We can tap into the supply from heaven to bless others and our nation.

The truth about bitterness

PLAY FROM THIS POINT
MAIN IDEA

Bitterness can hurt us. As believers, we can choose to forgive because God has first shown forgiveness and grace toward us.

key scriptures

Matt. 18:21–35

KEY TAKEAWAYS
FOLLOW PASTOR PRINCE AS HE EXPOUNDS ON THESE POINTS
  • Pastor Prince encourages us to not participate in conversations that carry the spirit of bitterness. When we are bitter toward someone, it’s akin to us drinking poison that only damages us and not the person we are upset with. Instead of being resentful, we can choose to forgive and live the abundant life. 
  • The Parable of the Unmerciful Servant (Matthew 18)

    This parable talks about a servant who owed a king ten thousand bags of gold. Since the servant was unable to pay his debt, his master ordered for the servant’s wife and children to be sold to repay his debt. The servant then begged his master for mercy. Moved with compassion, the servant’s master canceled his debt. However, instead of being grateful, the servant went to a fellowman who had previously owed him money and demanded for his money back. When the man was unable to repay and begged for mercy, the servant, instead of showing him the same grace he had just received, decided to throw the man into prison. The king soon heard about this and was enraged. 
  • “‘I canceled all that debt of yours because you begged me to. Shouldn’t you have had mercy on your fellow servant just as I had on you?’ . . . “This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother or sister from your heart.”
    —Matthew 18:21–35 NIV
  • Since we have been forgiven much by the Lord, we should extend grace and forgiveness to others for the little trespasses they have made against us instead of allowing bitterness to take root in our hearts.

How should we respond when in lack?

PLAY FROM THIS POINT
MAIN IDEA

In times of lack, involve the Lord in your situation and follow what He leads you to do. Begin to see His supply flow as you do so!

key scriptures

Gen. 41:55, John 2:1–11, Luke 5:1–11, John 13:35, Eph. 4:3

  • We are approaching a time that is similar to the seven years of famine in Genesis 41. When the seven years of famine began, the land of Egypt was famished and the people cried out to Pharaoh for help. His response to them was to go to Joseph, who was the overseer then, and do what Joseph instructed them to do (Gen. 41:55). 
  • In the same way the people had Joseph to guide them, we have our heavenly Joseph, Jesus Christ, to give us His wisdom to overcome the challenges we are facing today. We can receive His supply when we follow His leading and what He instructs us to do.
  • John 2 records the miracle of Jesus turning water into wine at a wedding. Seeing that the couple had ran out of wine, Mary told the servants to do whatever Jesus told them to. Before He turned water into wine, the Lord asked the servants to fill six water pots with water. As the servants obeyed the instructions of Jesus, the miracle happened! Similarly, our supply comes when we follow what the Lord tells us to do.
  • We see this also in Luke 5:1–11, where Jesus asked His disciples to let down their nets after a futile night of fishing. Even though they had caught nothing the night before, Peter still threw the net into the waters at the Lord’s word. The result of his obedience was a net-breaking, boat-sinking catch of fish! This shows us how the Lord provides for us when we follow His leading. If you are in a season in your career, work, or studies where you are not seeing results, allow the Lord into the situation and let Him lead you!
  • The priority is to always seek our Lord Jesus first, not seek the blessing first. Blessings will follow after us. The Lord’s heart is to provide for every need in our lives! This does not mean that we should be materialistic. God wants to supply us with more than enough so that we can be a blessing to others.
  • There is more supply than any need you see in your life. There is more health and healing than there is sickness. There is more forgiveness of sins and grace than there is sin in your life. This is the gospel of grace where our confidence is in God and the fullness of His supply!

What you hear = what you receive

MAIN IDEA

When you hear the right teachings about the Word of Christ, you will see God’s blessings manifest in your life!

  • It is only when God’s truth is being preached that people can have faith to believe and have the capacity to receive God’s blessings. For example, unless people know that Jesus heals, they cannot receive their healing. In churches where they believe Jesus saves, heals, and baptizes in the Holy Spirit, we see that people are saved, receive their healing, and flow in the gifts of the Holy Spirit! These examples show us the importance of listening to the right teachings. 
  • “Righteousness exalts a nation . . .”
    —Proverbs 14:34 NIV
  • For a nation to be exalted by righteousness, more people will need to hear the gospel and be saved. The gospel transforms people from the inside out. If there are changes we want to bring about in the world, we start by sharing the gospel. 
  • “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.”
    —Romans 10:17 ESV
  • It is important to guard what we hear. In the world we live in today, we are constantly hearing news from social media, and much of it is bad news. To grow in faith, we need to keep hearing the word of Christ.
  • Pastor Prince warns us of false teachings that only focus on chasing wealth. Prosperity is not just about money, but it is prospering in our spirit, soul, and body. Because of false teachings, there are some people who are against the teaching that God wants us to prosper. But God has promised us in His Word that He wants to provide for us. Psalm 23:1 says, “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.” This shows God’s heart for us to not be in lack.

  • And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.”
    —2 Corinthians 9:8 NKJV
  • is able to” — This Greek translation for this phrase is “dynatos,” which means “powerful.” It is also in the present tense. This means that God is, right now, powering all grace toward us. 
  • abound toward you” — This is how God provides His grace toward us—in an abundant way. Even though we are living in times of instability (e.g. war, impending recession, inflation) we can remain hopeful because God is making and will continue to make all grace abound toward us to supply every lack in our lives.
  • Always” Regardless of the situation we see, be it in good times or bad, God’s abounding grace for us is always constant. It never ceases.
  • all sufficiency”  This refers to all areas of our lives. It can also lead to financial supply but money is just a small part of this “all sufficiency.” Financial prosperity is usually a result of us prospering in all other areas of our lives. While we ought not be money-minded, money in itself is not evil. It is the love of money that is the root of all evil. That is what we should be cautious about. We should not go after money but to go after the Lord.
  • True prosperity is prospering in our souls! The greatest soul prosperity comes from the forgiveness of our sins and having a right standing with God. Prosperity is also having peace of mind and being in health. We prosper in our souls before we prosper outwardly (3 John 1:2).
  • And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.”

  • And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.”
    —2 Corinthians 9:8 NKJV
  • “may have an abundance for every good work” — It is only when we are full that we can overflow. It is difficult to be a blessing to others when we ourselves are lacking. God wants us to be full so that we can be a blessing to others!
  • “And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace.”
    —John 1:16 NKJV
  • Pastor Prince shares a video of waves to illustrate how God supplies His grace to us—just like waves on the seashore are never-ending, God supplies wave after wave after wave of His grace to us! We receive from the fullness of our Lord Jesus. Every time a supply of grace seems to run out, another wave of grace comes upon us.
  • There is a grace for every season in our lives. For example, some of us may not feel prepared for parenthood. But God will be able to supply us with the desire for children and the grace we need to be good parents when the time comes.
  • “For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.”
    —John 1:17 NKJV
  • the law was given . . . grace and truth came” — The law was given from a distance, while grace and truth came to us personally. Here, we can see that grace and truth are on the same side.
  • The law is about us doing/performing, while grace is about us receiving what Christ has already done for us. Unless we abide in the Lord, we cannot do anything (John 15:4–5). Jesus is the Source of all the good works we can do. We have to first receive from Him. The more we rest in His finished work, the more we see His supply flow in our lives!

  • “For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.”
    —John 1:17 NKJV
  • There are some people who make a distinction between grace and truth. They often present God’s truth as harsh and grace as the tender and merciful side of God. While it is true that there will be a final judgment, this is not the “truth” that is referred to in John 1:17. Instead, “grace and truth” here refers to true grace.
  • “grace and truth came” — In the original Greek translation of this phrase, “grace and truth” are actually referred to as a singular unit, since they are followed by the singular verb translated as “came.”
  • Grace and truth (i.e. true grace), is about us receiving God’s goodness through unmerited favor. This means that even though we do not deserve it and cannot work for it, we can still receive the supply that God has for us.
  • “For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth (‘hesed ve emet’) came through Jesus Christ.”
    —John 1:17 NKJV
  • “grace and truth” The Hebrew translation for this phrase is “hesed ve emet.” This Hebrew phrase is frequently found in the Old Testament. Every time this phrase is used, it refers to something good that happened. It is not used to compare God’s tenderness with His toughness.
  • Truth” The Greek translation for this word is “alētheia,” which means “reality.” Grace was present in the Old Testament but it was always hidden in types and shadows. However, under the new covenant today, grace is our present reality because of our Lord Jesus. When you encounter the person of Jesus, you experience grace! Our Lord Jesus is grace manifested in reality.
  • Pastor Prince shares how “grace and truth” were hidden in the Old Testament through the stories of David (2 Sam. 2) and Jacob (Gen. 32). Through these two stories, we see how “hesed ve emet” (grace and truth) were used in the Old Testament to refer to God’s unmerited favor. We also see how good things happen to us when true grace manifests in our lives!

  • Grace and truth came in the person of our Lord Jesus Christ. Where grace and truth (true grace) is, there will be supply, healing, grace, favor, and long-life! We can receive these blessings when we expose ourselves to Jesus.
  • Every time we go to the Lord in prayer, grace and truth is imparted to us. This also happens when we go to church (where the corporate anointing is) and hear the preached word of Christ. When grace and truth is imparted to us, good things happen! These blessings can manifest in the form of supply, healing, well-being for our families, and harmonious relationships instead of strife. 
  • Grace and truth also gives us favor and high esteem in the sight of God and man (Prov. 3:3–4), so we don’t have to always chase after man’s approval.
  • Genesis 24 records the story of Abraham’s servant helping Isaac look for a life partner. This was the prayer that the servant prayed to God: “Then he said, “O LORD God of my master Abraham, please give me success (qarah) this day, and show kindness (hesed) to my master Abraham. Behold, here I stand by the well of water, and the daughters of the men of the city are coming out to draw water.”
    —Genesis 24:12–13 NKJV
  • Success” — The Hebrew translation for this word is “qarah,” which means “opportune/good happening.” This is a practical prayer we can pray not just to find a life partner but also for success in every area! Pastor Prince encourages us to pray this every day before we leave our homes and when we embark on a new season in our careers.
  • After God led the servant to Rebekah (who later became Isaac’s wife), the servant gave thanks saying: “And he said, “Blessed be the LORD God of my master Abraham, who has not forsaken His mercy (hesed) and His truth (emet) toward my master. As for me, being on the way, the LORD led me to the house of my master’s brethren.”
    —Genesis 24:27 NKJV
  • Again, we see “hesed ve emet” being used. This shows us that when grace and truth manifests in our lives, our ways prosper. And not only do we become successful, but we also receive healing. We see this demonstrated in Mark 10:46–52 where Jesus healed Bartimaeus of blindness in Jericho.
  • When Bartimaeus heard that Jesus had come to Jericho, he cried out: “And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”
    —Mark 10:47 NKJV
  • Mercy” — The Hebrew translation for this word is “ḥānan” which means grace. Bartimaeus’ one cry for the Lord’s grace was all it took for him to be healed!
  • Not only was Bartimaeus healed of his blindness, but he was also completely transformed because of his encounter with the Lord. He removed himself from his identity as a beggar and followed Jesus wherever He went. 
  • You cannot stay the same after you expose yourself to Jesus—every curse in your life is destroyed, and every lack and sickness goes away.
