Introduction: The benefits of studying God’s Word

Pastor Prince begins the service by sharing the benefits of studying God’s Word.

We need to spend quiet time with the Lord during the week instead of only listening to God’s Word from Sunday to Sunday. God’s Word has answers to questions we might have about the situations we are going through right now.

We are to be students of God’s grace. We are beginning to see many signs of the end times (e.g. plagues, wars, and rumors of war) which indicate that the Lord is returning soon. As we approach the end times, it is even more important for us to continue to learn about God’s ways and feed our spirit with teachings on the new covenant.

The best way to study the Bible is through the guidance of the Holy Spirit. God can speak to us and invigorate us through His Word. Our minds come to life and our bodies become healthy and energetic because His Word is life to those who find it and health to all our flesh (Prov. 4:20–22)! Whichever stage of life we are at, we can ask the Lord to speak to us and learn from His Word.

God wants His people to be knowledgeable because He knows how destructive it can be to have a lack of knowledge (Hos. 4:6). God’s Word reveals to us the true nature of things, and His solutions and wisdom to what we are going through.

We are lifelong students of God's grace

“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:”
— Matthew 28:19 KJV

teach all nations” — In many translations of this verse, the phrase “make disciples of all nations” is used. The Greek and Hebrew translations of the word “disciple” are “mathētēs” and “talmid” respectively, which refer to teach. This means that a disciple is simply someone who is learning. To make disciples is to make students of God’s grace!

We are lifelong students of the new covenant!

In this sermon, Pastor Prince addresses the misconceptions that some people have about being a disciple. Unfortunately, some have portrayed being a disciple as superior to being a Christian, as if being a Christian is just an entry point or baseline. They believe that being a Christian alone is not enough and that to be a “holier” Christian or to progress further, we have to be disciples.

However, being a disciple simply means being a student. As Christians, we are all students of God’s grace. As believers, we cannot help but be hungry to learn. Just like newborn babes, we desire the sincere milk of the Word (1 Pet. 2:2)!

Experience victory over every failure when you own your new creation identity

You are a new creation and the righteousness of God in Christ! You are not defined by your failures. A butterfly may sometimes fall but it does not metamorphose back into a caterpillar; it is still a butterfly. In the same way, we remain righteous even when we fail at times. Even in those moments, remember who you are—a new creation in Christ.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”
—2 Corinthians 5:17 NKJV

Every failure, sinful habit, addiction, or negative thing that we still experience today stems from us not realizing that our old sinful nature has already been put to death by our Lord Jesus Christ at the cross. While we might still feel the inclination to sin, it is important to reckon (esteem) who we are in Christ! You are not what you feel. Don’t accept the label the enemy throws at you!

You are a son and daughter of God!

Pastor Prince shares how it is not right to say, “Being a Christian is great and all, but there is no cost to it because Jesus paid it all. But to be a disciple has a great cost.” The flesh loves to hear teachings like this because the flesh always wants to use the arm of strength. Actually, teaching like this is a form of regression. There were disciples before there were Christians. Jesus’ disciples were disciples before they became Christians and were called new creations.

When we look at all the Epistles and all the letters to the Church after the book of Acts, the word “disciple” is not mentioned. Instead, the Holy Spirit has replaced the word “disciple” with sonship—we are sons and daughters of God! This does not mean that we stop learning. It is in the heart of every son and daughter of God to learn!

You can be a disciple and not be part of God’s family. During Jesus’ time, to be a disciple of any Rabbi, people had to renounce their family and occupation to follow the teacher, but there was no sense of familial relationship. However, as sons and daughters of God, we are both a part of God’s family and students of His grace!

“To Timothy my true son in the faith: Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.”
—1 Timothy 1:2 NIV

“To Timothy, my dearly beloved son: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.”
—2 Timothy 1:2 KJV

While Paul discipled Timothy (in the sense that he taught Timothy), he regarded Timothy as a son. Sonship is greater than discipleship alone! As children of God, it is only natural that we learn from our heavenly Father.

Practical Handles on Rightly Dividing the Word

All the Bible is for us; every Scripture is God-breathed. But it is also important we understand that some portions of Scripture are written for the Jews while other portions are written for the Gentiles. While we can still learn and benefit from every scripture, we need to know when they are not written directly to us so that we do not take things out of context and inaccurately apply them to our lives.

The only letters written to us believers directly are the Epistles—love letters from the Holy Spirit to the Church—written by the apostles Paul, James, John, and Jude. This does not mean that we neglect the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. There are still principles for us to learn, but we need to discern the different groups of people these letters were written to.

Be strong in grace when you lay hold of the Spirit of sonship

“You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.
—2 Timothy 2:1–2 NKJV

While Timothy was discipled (taught) by Paul, the Holy Spirit never used the word “disciple” because Paul’s mentoring of Timothy was done in the Spirit of sonship that went beyond the relationship of a master and a student.

Sonship encapsulates discipleship. The greater always includes the lesser—Sonship is greater!

commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also” — God looks for faithfulness, not ability. The Lord can give us the gift of teaching when we choose to be faithful.

be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus” — Being strong in grace starts by first receiving our Lord Jesus Christ. Paul received the revelation of mentoring in Sonship from our Lord Jesus [1]. Paul [2] then discipled Timothy [3] who went on to teach faithful men [4], who went on to teach others [5].

Notice how there are five people involved in this! Five in the Bible represents the number of grace! We can be strong in grace when we receive the Lord’s grace for us.

You are divinely called and anointed in Christ!

“And when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch. So it was that for a whole year they assembled with the church and taught a great many people. And the disciples were first called (‘chrématizó’ – divinely called) Christians in Antioch.”
—Acts 11:26 NKJV

the disciples were first called (‘chrématizó’ – divinely called) Christians” — The Holy Spirit deliberately and purposefully renamed the disciples “Christians.” Christ is the Anointed One, so as Christians, we carry the same anointing that He has. When the Lord’s anointing is on us, whatever we do prospers effortlessly!

This is why it is not accurate to say, “Being a Christian is not enough. You need to be a disciple.” Under the new covenant, being a Christian is greater than being a disciple.

Establish yourself in the Spirit of sonship and walk in the fullness of your inheritance in Christ!

“Now before faith came, we were held captive under the law, imprisoned until the coming faith would be revealed. So then, the law was our guardian until Christ came, in order that we might be justified by faith. But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian, for in Christ Jesus you are all sons (‘huios’) of God, through faith.”
—Galatians 3:23–26 ESV

we are no longer under a guardian” — The guardian here refers to the Ten Commandments. When Israel was under the law, they were held captive under the law (the Ten Commandments). But under the new covenant, we are no longer under the law.

Just like a child needs a guardian to guide him in his ways only until he reaches maturity, we also no longer need the law (our guardian) when we are justified by faith and mature as fully-grown sons of God. This does not mean that we have the license to sin; it simply means that we do not need to be instructed by the Ten Commandments because as believers, the law is written in our hearts and we are guided by the leading of the Holy Spirit on the inside.

for in Christ Jesus you are all sons (‘huios’) of God, through faith.” — There are different Greek words for sons depending on their level of maturity. A child at infancy is called a “népios,” while a full-grown, mature son is referred to as “huios.” This word “huios” carries dignity—it is dignified to be a son of God. Being a son of God is more dignified than being a disciple.

“I mean that the heir, as long as he is a child (‘népios’ – infant), is no different from a slave, though he is the owner of everything, but he is under guardians and managers until the date set by his father. In the same way we also, when we were children (‘népios’ – infant), were enslaved to the elementary principles of the world. But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.”
— Galatians 4:1–7 ESV

as long as he is a child (‘népios’ – infant), is no different from a slave” — A child cannot enjoy his full inheritance. It takes maturity to enjoy certain blessings.

elementary principles” — This refers to the Ten Commandments. Again, this does not mean that we can be lawless or immoral. Instead, when God writes on our hearts, not only are we able to lead moral and upright lives, but we end up exceeding the standard of the law because of His grace, e.g. we not only refrain from committing adultery, but we fall more in love with our spouse.

You are one with Jesus! Allow Him to express Himself in you.

Now that we are under the new covenant, we are one with Jesus. He lives in us and leads us from within. Don’t fall from the high place that God has given you. The Lord has given you the Spirit of sonship!

God is your Father. God has many names, but “Father” is the name Jesus came to reveal.

Pastor Prince shares a personal experience when he received a revelation from the Lord on the Spirit of sonship. Pastor Prince was praying to God desperately when the Lord corrected him about the posture of his heart and encouraged him to pray to Him as a son. It was then that Pastor Prince realized that he saw God in a distant way and not as his heavenly Father. In the same way, it is important for us to establish ourselves in the Spirit of sonship and be conscious of our positions as sons!

Example of how we can pray with the Spirit of sonship

Pastor Prince gives an example of how we can pray with the Spirit of sonship when it comes to praying for healing:

“Father, I am Your Son, You are my Father. And I know You want me to have this more than I want it. Father, You want me healed because You love me. Father, thank You that this is the children’s bread and I receive it.”

The results of such prayers are powerful!

Come boldly to your Heavenly Father who loves you!

The Parable of the Prodigal Son

In this parable (Luke 15:11–37), there was a son who demanded his inheritance from his father and left home. After he squandered everything, the prodigal son reached a low point in his life where the only job he had was to feed pigs—a humiliating job for a Jew—and even longed to fill his stomach with what the pigs were eating. It was then that the prodigal decided to return home, hoping that he could be a hired servant for his father, seeing that they were in a better state than he was.

When the prodigal son “was still a great way off,” his father saw him, ran toward him, and kissed him all over! Not only that, the father ordered his servants to put the best robe on his son, gave him his ring (in those days, the ring carrying the family emblem was used as a form of payment), and put shoes on him. The father celebrated because his son, who had been lost, finally returned home.

When Jesus preached this parable, He was revealing the Father’s heart to us and those who heard Him!

The picture of the father putting shoes on the prodigal son is significant. Under the law, God told Moses to take off his shoes for where he stood was holy ground. This picture of the father putting on shoes for the prodigal son is a picture of God’s grace to us under the new covenant: we have a right to stand in His holy presence as His children!

While this reconciliation and restoration were taking place, the prodigal son’s older brother was upset that his father was throwing a celebration for his younger brother:

“So he answered and said to his father, ‘Lo, these many years I have been serving you; I never transgressed your commandment at any time; and yet you never gave me a young goat, that I might make merry with my friends. But as soon as this son of yours came, who has devoured your livelihood with harlots, you killed the fatted calf for him.’ “And he said to him, ‘Son (‘tecknon’), you are always with me, and all that I have is yours. It was right that we should make merry and be glad, for your brother was dead and is alive again, and was lost and is found.’ ”
— Luke 15:29–32 NKJV

Lo, these many years I have been serving you” — The older brother’s focus was on what he did to deserve his father’s blessings.

“‘Son (‘tecknon’), you are always with me,” — The Greek translation of the word “son” in this verse is “tecknon,” which refers to a child. Even though the older brother was initially referred to in this story as a full-grown son (‘huios’) in Luke 15:11, he forgot his identity, which led to his self-righteousness, bitterness, and anger. He was performance-oriented instead of conscious of his father and his father’s love toward him.

The prodigal son came home and found grace. Even though he had sinned against his father and his only intention for returning home was to have something to eat, he still received his father’s love and compassion, he accepted the robe of righteousness. Come back to Sonship!

You are a son and heir through God!

“And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.”
—Galatians 4:6–7 ESV

You are no longer a slave. Because you are a son, you are an heir through God! As heirs, you can receive and access the full inheritance that the Lord has for you today—not in the future, but right now.

Comparing Luke 14 and Luke 15

In Luke 14, the crowd that came to see Jesus saw Him as a teacher, not a Savior. They came to Him thinking they were smart in wanting to learn more from this man. Jesus responded to them by telling them they had to bear their cross in order to be His disciple (Luke 14:25–27). It was not enough for them to merely learn from Him, but they would have to die and be born again in order to follow Him.

After this group of people heard Jesus give such a tall order, they dispersed, and another group of people came to Jesus: the tax collectors and sinners who saw Jesus as a Savior.

“Then all the tax collectors and the sinners drew near to Him to hear Him. And the Pharisees and scribes complained, saying, “This Man receives sinners and eats with them.”
—Luke 15:1–4 NKJV

Because this group of people drew near to Jesus seeing Him as a Savior, Jesus responded very differently to them. He shared three parables of grace (the third one being the Prodigal Son) to minister to them.

God’s reason for saving people is clear in these parables—it is simply because it brings Him joy to save. He loves being a Savior.

“And He said, “Therefore I have said to you that no one can come to Me unless it has been granted to him by My Father.” From that time many of His disciples went back and walked with Him no more. Then Jesus said to the twelve, “Do you also want to go away?” But Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. Also we have come to believe and know that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
—John 6:65–69 NKJV

One can be a disciple (a student) and not be saved. The seventy people who followed Jesus were disciples yet many of them walked away from Him. They could not accept that it was the grace of God the Father that drew them to Jesus and not their own intellect and desire to learn.

Being a disciple does not give you a special status above being a son and daughter of God.

Observing Jesus’ disciples at the Last Supper: all the disciples called Jesus “Lord,” except for Judas, who called Jesus “Rabbi.”

Jesus wants us to see Him as our Lord and Savior, not just a teacher. Through our Lord Jesus, we are born again as sons and daughters of God, and we are called “Christians.”

The disciples in Antioch did not name themselves “Christians,” but it was the Holy Spirit who divinely revealed them as such (Acts 11:26 YLT). And after that, God never used the word “disciple” again in the New Testament.

Pastor Prince ends the service by praying over someone with a liver condition.

Salvation Prayer

“Heavenly Father, I thank You for the gift of salvation, the forgiveness of sins. It is a free gift but it was paid for by Your Son, my Lord Jesus Christ. He died on that cross for all my sins and You raised Him from the dead, conquering death for me. I stand before you right now, born again, filled with Your Spirit, a new creation. And let me continue Father, to be a student of Your grace. In Jesus’ name, Jesus Christ is my Lord. Amen.”

Closing Prayer

“This coming week, the Lord bless you, and the Lord keep you. The Lord make His face to shine upon you and be favorable to you. The Lord lift up His countenance on you and grant to you and your families His shalom wholeness, well-being, and peace. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.”

OWN THE WORD (life application)

If you want to grow in your walk with the Lord or desire to learn more about how to live a victorious life under the new covenant of grace, it is so important to first know your starting point as a son or daughter of God! This means that:

  • You have already been fully adopted and accepted into God’s family. Because of Jesus’ perfect work at the cross, you have been born again as a new creation made in righteousness and holiness (Eph. 4:24), and you now carry the identity and dignity of a son of God.
  • As a son or daughter of God, you get to experience deep familial love and closeness in your learning journey.
  • It is only natural and innate that you desire to learn from your heavenly Father and that likewise, He is eager to teach you how to flow with Him and win in life.

So if there is any breakthrough you need or anything you need guidance on, pray with the assurance that God is your heavenly Father. He loves you and wants to provide the best for you.

With the same Spirit of sonship, you can also embark on Grace Academy, where you can learn how to thrive in various areas of life such as marriage, parenting, career, activating spiritual gifts, or learning how to study the Bible.

Beloved, the more you see yourself as a son and daughter of God, the more you will be able to boldly come to your heavenly Father and access the fullness of your inheritance in Christ!

We hope these sermon notes blessed you! If they did, we encourage you to get the sermon and allow the Lord to speak to you personally as you watch or listen to it.

Introduction: God gave His only Son to save us from sin and death

Pastor Prince opens the service by leading the congregation in a time of worship.

Today, we celebrate Resurrection Day! Resurrection is the greatest power.

Once, death was the greatest power. In the beginning, man made a choice to sin and had to suffer the consequence, which was death. Adam’s sin allowed death to be the greatest power on earth.

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
—Romans 6:23 NKJV

However, God never wanted death to reign over His children. That is why God sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for our sins and suffer the consequence of death on our behalf. At the cross, Jesus defeated death once and for all.

Down through the corridors of time, death came marching for man. But finally, there came a Man, Jesus Christ, marching after death to destroy it. That’s why we celebrate Resurrection Day.

Jesus’ resurrection transcends death! It is now the greatest power in the whole universe.

The Lord Jesus is with you wherever you go—His power is not limited by time or space

Resurrection power has this quality: it transcends time and space. It does not come and go like a physical presence.

Today, Jesus in His resurrected form is no longer confined by the natural laws of time and space. He is with us in our hearts. It is just a matter of us having eyes to see Him or not. When we behold Him with our spiritual eyes, He appears.

Some of us may be envious of the people who were able to touch and see Jesus in the flesh when He was a man walking on earth. But they had to physically travel to see Him and ask for miracles because He was limited by time and space.

But today, He is right where you are! And He comes not to spectate but to impart, to supply, to provide, to heal, to deliver. This is the nature of love, and His heart is full of love for you. Allow Him to give to you whatever He has in His heart for you.

Beloved, God’s heart is to bless you with every good thing, so be in the posture to receive.

Your heavenly Father wants to heal you and your loved ones

Jesus came to refresh, restore, and heal. Pastor Prince leads the church in a moment of worship and prays for healing over everyone listening. As Jesus is no longer bound by time or space, we can receive healing and restoration no matter when or where we are tuning in. Furthermore, we can ask for healing for those who are not with us physically.

Pastor Prince shares a testimony of a sister in Christ being completely healed of cancer of the brain after two years.

During the sermon, Pastor Prince calls out from the congregation testimonies of healing that happened during worship. Some of these testimonies include precious brothers and sisters in Christ who were completely delivered from back, leg, stomach and neck pains.

We do not have to wait for a pastor to pray for healing for us or our loved ones. At any time, Jesus can give you a healing touch. Believe it. Be conscious that whenever you spend time with Jesus, you’re spending time with the Healer.

Notice that when Jesus resurrected Jairus’ daughter and the son of the widow of Nain, He always returned the children to their parents even though He had a claim on their lives. It is up to us as parents to return our children to Jesus, to consecrate and commit our children to Him.

Jesus never puts a price on healing. When Jesus heals, He does it freely.

We are coming to a God with perfect love and absolute goodness.

By man came death. So God sent His Son as a man, and from this Man came the resurrection from the dead.

Let God’s perfect love cast out every fear in your heart

In an increasingly dangerous world with strife and wars, we can take heart in knowing that what is happening in today’s world is what the Bible says will happen before Jesus returns to earth. Until then, Jesus is our refuge and we can come to Him anytime.

Come to Him with your fears, whether it is fear of the future, fear for your children, fear over symptoms in your body, fear of not having enough, fear of growing old, or fear of death.

This Resurrection service is to commemorate that Jesus rose from the dead, transcending every limitation known to man—especially death. He conquered death. Resurrection is greater than death, and so it is greater than the things that are lesser than death like depression, disease, and all kinds of fears that torment man.

We can trust Jesus and make Him our refuge by simply telling Him, “You are my refuge. You are my hiding place.”

As we continue to behold His love for us through worship, the Lord will remove the fears in our lives.

“You are my hiding place
You always fill my heart
With songs of deliverance
Whenever I am afraid
I will trust in You
I will trust in You
Let the weak say
I am strong
In the strength of the Lord”
—Selah

Pastor Prince leads the church into a time of worship again.

Receive peace from the Lord. He is imparting it to you.

“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
—John 14:27 NKJV

You receive His peace by choosing to “let not your heart be troubled.” No one can “let not” for you; it is your part to let not your heart be troubled.

Live in the present and experience God’s daily supply of grace for every need

Whatever worries about tomorrow you may have, remember that Jesus supplies to you what you need daily (Matt. 6:11)—not weekly or monthly. When the day comes, the provision for that day will be there.

God is a present God, a right-now God. He is our very present help.

So don’t live in the future by worrying. God is the I AM (present tense). If you want to be where God is, to be in the realm where all things are possible and provisions and healing are flowing, stay in the present.

Don’t live in the future or stay in the past. For your peace of mind, live now.

Today is Resurrection Day! Resurrection power transcends time and space.

In the Gospels, there are three accounts of Jesus raising the dead—Jairus’ 12-year-old daughter who died while Jesus was on His way to heal her, the widow of Nain’s son who had died a few hours before Jesus arrived, and Lazarus who had been dead for four days before Jesus came to resurrect him.

The raising of Lazarus from the dead after he had been in the tomb for four days was indisputable proof of Jesus’ supernatural miracle of resurrection.

Jesus was at Bethabara at the Jordan River when He first heard the news that Lazarus was sick (Bethabara is the place where the children of Israel in the Old Testament crossed over the river into the promised land, with the ark of the covenant going before them). When Jesus heard the news, He did something seemingly strange—He waited two more days before heading to Bethany where Lazarus was.

It was only after Lazarus had been dead for four days that Jesus came on the scene.

“Now Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died. But even now I know that whatever You ask of God, God will give You.” Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.”
— John 11:21–23 NKJV

If you saw a Man who spoke to the dead and the dead came alive, who spoke to demons and the demons were cast out, who spoke to diseases and the diseases fled, who spoke to storms and the storms bowed down—what do you think would happen if this Man were to confront death itself?

Naturally, it is impossible to defeat death. But Jesus did it. He came down to redeem us from death once and for all. Contrary to how the media portrays the crucifixion of Christ, when Jesus hung on the cross, He did not say, “Finished!” in defeat but He said it triumphantly with a loud voice. God was glorified and man was redeemed!

“Now Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died. But even now I know that whatever You ask of God, God will give You.” Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.” 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.”
— John 11:21–25 NKJV

“Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died. . . . I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.” — When Lazarus died, Martha believed that Jesus could have saved her brother if He had come earlier, but since Jesus was “late,” she believed that Lazarus would rise again on the last day. She was unaware of the extent of Jesus’ power and limited Jesus to the past and the future.

I am the resurrection and the life.” — When Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life,” He meant it in the present. The “last day” or the future is inconsequential when Jesus is right now present before you. He IS, at this very moment, the resurrection and the life.

Don’t worry about the future or the past. That is not where God is. He is in the present. If you keep living in the future or the past, you will only get more worried and depressed because there is no favor there. Favor is in the present, where God is. Live in the present where you will find His supply of grace.

though he may die, he shall live” — “Though” is a supposition, meaning that while there will be those who die, not everyone will die. There is a generation that will not see death but will be raptured. Pastor Prince believes that we are part of the generation that will not see death.

Jesus has defeated death and put away all judgment for your sins at the cross

The ark of the covenant going into the Jordan River is a picture of Jesus going into death for us

“and they commanded the people, saying, “When you see the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God, and the priests, the Levites, bearing it, then you shall set out from your place and go after it. Yet there shall be a space between you and it, about two thousand cubits by measure. Do not come near it, that you may know the way by which you must go, for you have not passed this way before.”
— Joshua 3:3–4 NKJV

Yet there shall be a space between you and it, about two thousand cubits” — The ark went into the Jordan River first, and the Israelites were only allowed to follow the ark after 2,000 cubits (about 1 kilometer). The 2,000 cubits here are a picture of the 2,000 years between us and the time Jesus went to the cross.

The River Jordan at that time was overflowing and dangerous to cross—it is a picture of the power of death. The ark going into the Jordan River is a picture of Jesus entering death at the cross. And Jesus came out alive.

While some may argue that there are Christians who still die today, it is written that death no longer has power over us because Jesus has defeated death for us. For Christians who die in the natural, their spirit does not remain in death (John 11:25). Yet there is a generation that will not see death. When Jesus comes again, believers who have died physically will go up first in their new bodies and we who remain will be caught up in the air with them (1 Thess. 4:17).

The moment the ark entered the River Jordan on the shoulders of the priests, God pushed back the River Jordan all the way back to a city called Adam 30 miles away.

“So it was, when the people set out from their camp to cross over the Jordan, with the priests bearing the ark of the covenant before the people, and as those who bore the ark came to the Jordan, and the feet of the priests who bore the ark dipped in the edge of the water (for the Jordan overflows all its banks during the whole time of harvest), that the waters which came down from upstream stood still, and rose in a heap very far away at Adam (‘man’), the city that is beside Zaretan (‘their distress, trouble’). So the waters that went down into the Sea of the Arabah, the Salt Sea, failed, and were cut off; and the people crossed over opposite Jericho.”
— Joshua 3:15–16 NKJV

Adam (‘man’), the city that is beside Zaretan (‘their distress, trouble’)” — It is significant that the city is called Adam. When the first man, Adam, sinned, he brought distress and trouble upon mankind. When the ark entered the Jordan River, God pushed back the waters of judgment all the way back to Adam, the first man.

The priests carrying the ark of the covenant stood still in the middle of the river Jordan. This is a picture of how Jesus, God’s perfect Son, hung on the cross until He bore every last judgment meant for us and our families. He took every stroke of judgment on our behalf until there was nothing left, and He remained, and shouted, “Finished!”

When the children of Israel stepped into the Jordan River 2,000 cubits after the ark of the covenant, they did not see one drop of water. Not a single drop of judgment or death was left. This symbolizes how those of us who come after Jesus defeated death at the cross will not feel one drop of death. Even if we experience physical death, we will not feel death. Jesus’ death cleared the way for us!

The other side of the Jordan River is a picture of resurrection ground. It is where we are!

Believe in the truth of Jesus’ perfect work and walk in His resurrection power

“For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
— Romans 6:10–11 NKJV

He died to sin once for all . . . Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ” — The work of Jesus on the cross is complete and perfect. He came so that we can see ourselves dead to sin and alive unto God just as He is. You are not on the side of judgment, curse, or death. You have crossed the Jordan River and you are now on resurrection ground!

Everyone, regardless of what they had or had not done, crossed the river Jordan. This signifies that Jesus’ finished work is for everyone who believes—no matter what you have done or what spiritual level of growth you are at.

To walk in His resurrection power, we have to believe the truth that death, sin, the curse, and all judgment are behind us.

Jesus’ resurrection was different from the raising of the dead that He performed. All the people He rose from the dead died again. Jesus rose to never die again. Jesus’ resurrection was not just being raised from the dead, but it was destroying death altogether.

When Lazarus rose from the dead, he was still bound by grave clothes. However, when Jesus rose, His body transcended His grave clothes. He conquered death and had a body that could transcend time and space, appear and disappear. The stone was rolled away not for Jesus to leave the grave but for the disciples to look in and see that He is risen!

When Lazarus died, Jesus wept because He knew our heavenly Father’s heart was not for man to die. Don’t doubt God’s heart for you to have eternal life and live a blessed life.

Salvation Prayer

Heavenly Father, I thank You for the gift of Your Son, Jesus Christ. I confess Jesus Christ is my Lord and my Savior. I believe You raised Him from the dead. All my sins have been put away by the blood of Jesus. I'm a risen man. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Closing Prayer

“This coming week, may the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ that was with Esther that gave her favor in the sight of the king and of all the people that looked on her, may the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ that was with Joseph that prospered all his way even while in prison and caused him to be promoted to the right hand of Pharaoh—may this grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God the Father, and the communion, the sweet friendship, of the Holy Spirit be with you and your families now and forever. In the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ, Amen.”

OWN THE WORD (life application)

What does Resurrection Day mean for you? It means that Jesus has confronted and defeated death, and His resurrection power now flows freely in your life. He is (present tense) the resurrection and the life, bringing you healing, wholeness, and deliverance right where you are. He is not limited by time or space, but He is right now close to you and is your very present help in time of need.

This week, keep on beholding Jesus. Open the eyes of your heart to see Him with you—in the present—supplying all that you need. If you have fears about the future or regrets about the past, pause and choose to be in the present with the Lord. When you focus on Him in the now, you will experience His daily grace and shalom peace being imparted to you for all your needs.

Throughout this week, sing this song and behold Jesus:

“You are my hiding place
You always fill my heart
With songs of deliverance
Whenever I am afraid
I will trust in You
I will trust in You
Let the weak say
I am strong
In the strength of the Lord”
—Selah (pause & reflect)

in the middle of the night at 3 30 a.m and will not be able to go back to sleep it was especially stressful for me as i was looking after my daughter my husband had to work in the office so i was left on my own to take care of my daughter and the house i had to take pills in order to fall asleep and was fearful that once i stopped taking them the insomnia would return one day i heard one of pastor prince's sermons where he encouraged those who are suffering from insomnia to read the word before going to sleep that night i felt led to stop taking the pills and had peace as i did so i read pastor princess eat your way to life and health and i partook of the holy communion before i went to sleep and i was declaring that sleep is a gift from god and i'm redeemed from insomnia now listen to this i kept meditating i kept meditating on psalms 127 verse 2 which says that the lord gives his beloved sleep even a verse like that it's a short verse he gives his beloved sleep what a verse to meditate on amen as you are on the bed hey man you're gonna sleep meditate don't count sheep amen invent you on god's word feed on god's word after doing this for a few nights i woke up one morning pleasantly surprised i had slept more hours than usual and the quality of sleep was good even without the sleeping pills you know that's important because people sleep nine hours and they wake up groggy they don't feel good the quality of sleep was even wonderful imagine she said i have been having more good quality sleep thank you jesus for redeeming me from sleepless nights and the same can happen to you my friend amen i feel like there are people watching this and you have been having you know faithful nights where you just feel like you know you're tossing and turning and you're afraid because in the morning you have to go to work and let me tell you there's many things on god's word even you got three hours of sleep four hours there'll be an energy there'll be a supernatural energy in fact in psalms 119 it says quicken down me according to your word question tell me the word this make me come alive amen physically amen the word of the idea of health reviving amen reinvigorating quicken down me according to your word hallelujah praise the lord you know when i was young i i was a very nervous person especially when you know in secondary school not primary school in secondary school the teacher will always come in realize that i had this predicament and made me of all the people in the class as a whole at school make me stand up to read and you know i can't even read let alone give a speech right i can't even read and the book and the words are in front of me i can't even read i would just be stuttering stuttering i had stuttering problem and then the girls would start laughing the more they laughed the more nervous i became my ears would go red and and you know i i fear going to school because of this condition i remember a passage from jeremiah that god gave me in those days and i was reading this and jeremiah was a young prophet yeah the bible says he was a young prophet in fact when god called him he says i'm a youth i'm a young prophet i'm a young i'm a young young man but god was calling him to the prophetic ministry imagine that he was a youth and he's supposed to preach against the uh the princes of judah and all the elders and the leaders and he was afraid to stand in front of them so i remember that this verse came to me but it was only later on when god called me into the ministry that this verse came alive because even then i had i had you know problems preaching in front of people i was very nervous and sometimes the thoughts of my stuttering came back and i was very nervous to even speak to a few people in the in the room and this is the verse that god gave me and back then i didn't know about her zone vision i didn't know about all this but this is what god says therefore prepare yourself and arise and speak to them all that i command you do not be dismayed before their faces i was afraid of people's faces all right i look at their face and and i would sometimes uh judge how they were assessing me by their face and god says don't be afraid of their faces unless i dismay you before them for behold now this is the his own vision he gave me now back then i didn't know it was his own vision but this is what he said i see you like this son i have made you this day a fortified city an iron pillar and bronze walls not stony walls bronze walls bronze is resilient against fire hey man it is very strong it endures fire so these walls cannot be burned down i've made you a fortified city an iron pillar bronze walls against the whole land against the kings of judah against his princes against his priests against the people of the land they'll fight against you but they shall not prevail against you for i'm with you says the lord to deliver you now think about it it's a context of preaching you know jeremiah's call was to preach to these people and yet god says they will not be able to fight you in your preaching why because god says i i look i'm making you a fortified city amen i'm making you an iron pillar not just any pillar an iron pillar and i begin to see myself when i stand in front of a crowd i begin to see myself a fortified city iron pillar hallelujah iron pillar man six packs okay iron pillar amen amen bronze wall so i look at the people's faces and i just you know it's like water off the duck's back hey man i allowed that vision to occupy my mind and i began to be obsessed amen that's the word meditate amen over that that that visual picture god gave me iron i'm a fortified city amen i'm a bronze wall hallelujah i am iron pillar amen praise the lord but still i you know in the natural i must i don't always feel adequate but many times that vision came to my rescue hallelujah praise the lord so maybe god speak to you but you know the bible is full of herzone vision treasures that god wants to bring into your life for you to meditate on for you to fill your the eyes of your heart with amen and all of a sudden one day you'll wake up and you'll find where's that fear where is that fear and the bible says you will find his place no more hallelujah praise the lord thank you jesus i pray this to encourage you to meditate on god's word amen find a simple verse of scripture amen a verse that speaks to you maybe it's one of the verses that i shared with you just now maybe it's a verse the entrance of your words gives light meditate on it meditate on it and you do not know that you are fast becoming a discerning and wise man or woman but you can see it but others will see it and your profiting will appear to all you will make your way prosperous and you will have good success amen just like jesus our lord jesus he grew up meditating on on god's word amen and that's why even in the temptation the wilderness his only response was it is written it is written it is written amen at the cross he actually quoted the entire psalm psalms 22 amen his heart was full of the scriptures full of the word of god just like paul told timothy in 2nd timothy chapter 3 it says from a child you have known the holy scriptures which are able to make you wise unto salvation through faith in christ jesus notice this salvation here is a the word soteria is the noun of sozo all right it's a all-inclusive word don't just think of safe from hell i'm born again i'll never go to hell don't just think of that that is the beginning amen you are safe and you're safe forever

have a great appreciation for our lord jesus

and get answered prayers in your life

i i'm gonna attempt by the grace of god to destroy every erroneous thinking in your mind

especially in the area of prayer

you know the church has suffered so much from prayerlessness

let alone have people in the church

in the christendom telling people all right well

the reason they gotta answer your prayer is because of this

and put so many burdens and

obstacles along the way that people just give up praying

because if god is gonna find fault with me when i pray

how can i get my prayer answered

might as well not pray so people have different different ideas you know

you also remember when i preach a message called why pray

why pray if god is all-knowing

why pray if god is all-knowing right and

the thing is this this kind of reasoning

this kind of wrong thinking wrong believing will cause you not to pray

because you say god knows all my needs anyway

in matthew 6 in the sermon on the mount jesus talked on prayer over here

he says therefore do not be like the gentiles people do not know god

for your father knows the things you have need of before you ask him

so because of this reasoning people say look my father knows god knows all my needs before i ask him

so why pray and

yet the next verse says in this manner therefore pray

because the father knows your needs in this manner therefore

he didn't say in this manner therefore don't pray or

he didn't say because of this don't pray

on the contrary he says because your father knows your needs before you ask him now ask

so that is right believing but

wrong believing in saying god knows all my needs anyway

you want to help me or help me

you must understand all right

if this was still the garden of eden and we are in paradise

you know on on earth and

that's what god's heart was for man

a garden where there is no sickness

no disease no death no one grows old

everyone has more than enough for their own needs and

families would grow in this beautiful garden

there'll be no hatred no murder no wars no strife

there'll be no jealousy because everyone will have everything

they want and more left over amen but

adam committed heights reason

now you say that well god could have stopped adam

i told you before if god made adam a robot

the world will still be a garden

there'll be no sin but

god didn't create robots

god made man in his image with a free choice now

if man is about to choose something evil and

god used his power to stop that

then god is playing around with man's free choice

so free choice for free choice

to be free choice God has to let man be and

not influence him in any way with His power and

that's why you must always remember

you can pray for someone to be your girlfriend or your boyfriend all right

to marry someone if that person's free choice comes into play

you can pray for someone to be safe yes you can pray and

your prayer will cause the right persuasive evangelists that the person can respond to

to come along his way he will hear something see something that

God knows his personality type what type that he likes to maybe he's a reader maybe he's a he's a listener whatever this

God will bring those circumstances

they'll be favorable for him to accept Christ but God

your prayers cannot cannot make God force that person to receive Christ or else

God will have forced adam not to take up that fruit all right

don't forget god gave the entire garden

everything good for men except for one tree and

that's the tree that man wanted

because satan came in and and

the same story today he will point to you one thing

he'll tell you that you don't have

he always point to you something you don't have

he doesn't remind you to count your blessings

I'm telling you you have so many things

now the fact you can come here today be alive and

let everyone that have breath praise the Lord all right

but you're thinking of something else amen

some young one might think of i don't have the latest you know psp or xbox or something like that on the next next better game and

they're unhappy with their parents or something or whatever we always

the adults are not happy about someone

my spouse did this today all right

don't hold on to it all the time

there are many good things about your spouse

count their many blessings

count their many good points amen church

so jesus didn't say because your father knows what you need don't pray

he says because your father knows pray

because we are in a fallen world and

because of our choice

in other words God says I have all these blessings right now

I'm about to bring into your life favor wisdom amen um

health wholeness amen but

I need something from your side what is it you must consent

you must agree for me to bless you

I cannot bless you beyond your free will

I cannot bless you beyond your violation

do you want this blessing

prayer is nothing more than an open heart

open mind open life open hands remember

this you bring nothing to God

we are all empty

God the source brings all his blessings and gifts into your life amen so

prayer is just an expression of here is my open hand

God cannot bless someone no matter how sincere the person is

it has a close mind close heart close hands and saying things like

if God want to bless me God bless me

God cannot do that

if He can force His way I mean

He can make you float like a butterfly if he wants to all right

He can hang you over grand canyon and then drop you

aren't you glad I'm not god amen

God can do anything He wants

He's sovereign but

God respects laws and

God gave man choice

so man must now express in this fallen earth all right

the bible tells us that all have sinned and

come short of the glory of God you cannot just say I choose sin but I don't choose the consequence

I choose to put my finger in the fire but I choose not to be burned

you cannot have that

when you choose sin you choose the consequence

God cannot do anything about it but to let the consequence flow but

God sent his Son without anyone asking

God sent the greatest gift of all

His own son because

god loved us amen

to take on so jesus will take on himself

all the consequences of all that we have done as well as

our sins become liable all right

as our substitute suffer under god's heavy judgment for our sins

he who did no sin became sin now that's god's initiative are you listening people

now even after jesus finished everything

he bought our diseases not only our sins he bought our diseases does that mean we walk in health

we must still consent with what jesus did

we must concern with the it is finished because

even after we become christians his children we still have a choice

we can choose to hold a grudge or we can choose to let go

even right now

you're not forced or compelled to just sit this service throughout

you can at any time step up walked out amen

you have a free choice

i got no power over your free choice and

you know something god will not not that he has not

he will not exert any power over your free choice

you must say father i consent to be blessed and

that's why amen is an expression of so be it

it's a prayer

it's the shortest prayer i know amen

which means if you hear the word of god being preached

you see our man got his angel that one wants

that lady wants it all right pour it on her

another one say amen all right angel this one wants it pour it on him

so the thing is that do you want it

if you want it you got to show god that you want it

open mouth open hands that's prayer

in 3 john 2 we saw this last week

john by now is an aged man

the man who leaned on jesus bosom when he was a teenager

one of jesus 12 disciples

the one that's called the disciple whom jesus loved all right

here he is an ancient man

he's one of those longest living disciples

he never was martyred

by the way he just died in old age

just went on to be with jesus

so as an ancient man he wrote the episodes of john all right

he wrote the gospel of john as well you all know that

but these are the episodes first john ii and third john

in third john all right he said his brink you can say that

the final one is the book of revelation

but at this point in time he knows what is god's will

he knows all right

because there are many voices in christendom

some people say you know it's not right for you to pray for prosperity

it's not right

john who is aged by now

who has walked with jesus for so many years

who knew the lord's heart because he leaned his year on the heart of jesus

he knew the ulrim and the tomin

the lights and perfections and

this is what he said beloved

he's calling us his right is talking to only believers not those in the world

beloved i pray that you may prosper in all things

not only that and be in health just as your soul prospers

now the ones that he's writing to are their souls prospering already yes

just as your soul prospers is present tense which means their souls are already prospering

now we have this notion don't have to pray as long your souls are prospering

you know you'll be healthy

you'll be prosperous yet john pray john prayed for those whose souls are prospering

that you'll be in health

he prayed that help will manifest

we know a lot of good people all right

who don't believe in healing

we know a lot of good people who don't believe in prosperity

but their souls are prospering because they love the lord their souls are prospering because

they read the bible more than you

they spend time with a lot more than you

their souls are prospering but they are not allowing health to manifest amen

so it's one thing for your souls to prosper

it is not automatic you gotta pray father caused me to prosper even as my soul prospers

cause me to be in health even as my soul prospers

can i pray that for you at the end

imagine their souls are already prospering yet he prayed

it's not automatic

he prayed that

i pray that you be in health just as your souls prosper

and notice health and prosperity in this one verse came from the lips of a man who knew the heartbeat of god

what does god wish for you above all things

it's not just i just want you to have spiritual things

disease in your body never mind endure it all right

after all one day you walk on streets of gold

it's not just for the here you know

in the in the sweet by and by okay one day in heaven the sweet vine

by it's for the sour now and now amen

doesn't have to remain sour pray

pray for your children

the pastor how long do i keep on praying

keep on praying

now why why keep on praying

why keep on praying

because there is an enemy

like i said if it's garden of eden and there's no enemy

there's no need to keep on praying

in fact you hardly have to pray you just think and and

god answers

but don't forget if we're in a fallen world

we need to show god our open hands and

that comes by prayer

even when jesus was here as a man

he would rise up early in the morning and

he would pray

if the son of god prays how much more you and i

the bible says you have not because you ask not

therefore you fight

therefore you are jealous

you are envy

you lust and

you cannot have

james chapter four

it says you lost

you covered because you cannot have and

then you you assassinate people's character

you say bad things and

all that because you are jealous of what they have and

then the bible says you have not because you ask not

if our marriage is no longer satisfactory to us we don't even want our spouse to know

talk to god talk to god

you know you never know how god will inspire changes in your spouse

pray pray if you're you think that your intimate intimacy in your marriage is not good enough ask god what can god do

do i never ask that never ask that it's a stupid question okay

let me take you by the hand go through the universe drop you then

you know what god can do you're afloat all right

let god be god a great theologian once said

i'm so glad there are things about god i cannot logic out

i need a god

i need to worship a god that cannot be confound confined by my logic

i'm glad i cannot understand god

there are some things i cannot understand god amen

because god is greater than my logic

he is greater than my intellect and

i'm glad i need to worship a god who is greater than my intellect

so here the the principle is this

the first thing i want to demolish in your mind is that if god knows about it why pray and

if my soul is prospering i'm attending church every sunday i'm listening to pastor prince sermons and

i'm reading his books and

all that my soul is prospering

yeah but sometimes there's a hindrance whatever it is but it's satanic

hindrance whatever it is pray

pray father in jesus name my soul is prospering thank you for that

now cause my health to prosper

cause me to prosper in all aspects of my life lord and

i pray for my children lord cause them to prosper a lot in jesus name

in their affairs of studies and

every other things that they do lord cause them to prosper

grant them wisdom lord

how often do i pray that pastor

pray and keep on praying it

the bible uses the word continue asking

jesus says in a seminal mound keep on asking

original great keep on asking and

you will receive keep on seeking and you are fine

keep on knocking the door will open

asking starts with a seeking

starts with s knocking starts with a k ask

you have not because you ask not

we look at the bible and the bible has many references all right

besides the fact that jesus prayed every day

rise up early in the morning

had a very busy day until late at night

in the evening people were still bringing those who were demon possessed and

those who were sick and

he healed them all

yet he would rise up early in the morning

priority number one he would pray

if jesus would pray all right how much more you and i

okay now i will come to another wrong thinking

we have apostle

prince are gonna pray long

we'll come to that okay you know what why don't we come to that now okay

it's interesting that jesus never condemned short prayers

but you have statement more than one statement in the bible where jesus actually condemned for a pretense he told the pharisees

you'll make long prayers so we have undocumented that he condemned pretentious long prayers

many a times the long prayers are done on your own

when you stand in public your prayers are very short

i can see disappointment in people sometimes when they meet me in the mall somewhere

upon supreme can you pray for me

i just touch my shoulder whatever whichever is decent a lady or a guy you know

and then you know i i because i believe in the laying on of hands all right

it must be appropriate and i'll pray a prayer

father in jesus name heal this person right now of this disease we smite this disease to its roots in jesus name

it's done amen

after that they're still down there

then i feel like you know they are disappointed

they look up there and there

they almost they don't say it but in their torso that's all

is that all

is that all

well the greatest prayers jesus prayed was at the tomb of lazarus and

he looked up before before lazarus was raised

he looked up his father

start counting one two okay

now father i thank you that you have heard me and that you hear me always

how long few seconds

then look into the tomb

lazarus comes off

by the way that is english

in hebrew aramaic is even shorter

kumi

one word okay

all the prayers of jesus are short

in fact the shorter we pray the bigger we make him

we're saying it's all you lord

people say thing you gotta pray oh this situation gotta pray hard gotta pray heart

i'm sorry man wow i tell you this one this time i spray hard

hey you better pray hard no

let me tell you this

you pray hard you pray soft it is not you okay

it is the one you are praying to and

of course now i've touched on some of the denominational people that

they come against prosperity or health or whatever all right now

i come to the to be fair charismatic people

there are charismatic people who have these thoughts that you gotta pray heart loud loud especially

be healed in jesus name you know it's coming out come out all seven of you in jesus name

now it's some of the most powerful prayers that i know of in my life that have healed people of diseases like cancer

and all that i pray soft

i'm not saying soft or soft is the thing no

it's not

i'm just telling you

he's the one amen

the one who loves us and

gave his life for us

the father who sent his son

he is the one that answers our prayers

so i understand the expression you say pray hard

i understand but i wonder whether you understand that is not your prayer

it is him amen amen

pray heart like they want to give birth

now there is a place

i understand spiritual warfare

i'm not my spiritual warfare here

i'm simply asking god which for the most part is our prayer okay amen

so the bible says jesus said in uh matthew 6 therefore do not be like them

we saw this

just now look at the context of this verses before this and

when you pray you shall not be like the hypocrites for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets

that they may be seen by men

assuredly jesus says i say to you they have their reward

but you when you pray go into your room and

when you have shut your door pray to your father who is in the secret place and

your father who sees in secret how will he reward you church

he will reward you also in secret

say shout it openly

openly

and when you pray watch this and

when you pray do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do

don't use vain repetitions as the heathen do

for they think that they'll be heard for their many words

you know people have this idea that

there are many words finally will compel god

no

let me tell you this

god was compelled to give

to give us the greatest gift long before anybody ever asked him

to send his son okay and

that was the greatest gift

that was the greatest gift

greatest blessing

so you think for one moment that

god needs to be coaxed

you need to persuade

god huh nobody suffocated to god

to send his son

are you listening people

this amazing god okay now

it says here and when you pray

do not use vain repetitions for they think that they'll be heard for their many words

next verse therefore do not be like them

your father knows

so make your prayers simple

make it homely

you come to god

say father i need your help here

i do not know what's wrong with my child but

i know step back know his son

i know you love my boy more than i love my boy

i'm gonna lay my hands on him

i'm asking you father in jesus name heal him

heal him father and then

in jesus name don't

don't don't feel anymore his uh temperature whatever

just believe

it's done in jesus name

you can take his temperature later of course all right

you know but the thing is at the moment just thank god

look at god's heart and some

some parents do say things like you know

oh god you know i love my child so much

you know let me take his sickness

so the thing is that this is a form of self-righteousness

because there was one who took your child's sickness

instead of giving glory to him now you are saying you can take your son's sickness

by the way you make a lousy sacrifice

there is sin in your blood

the one who took your son's sickness has no sin tainting his blood

he's the only qualified one

so you know what

just tell the father it is paid for

tell the father what it is paid for

just because something is paid for it's not automatic

you got to pray

why because we are we we are in a place where god wants our free choice involved in this all right

another thing is that

we are in a place on earth

it's a place of conflict

satan hates us god loves us and

the arena of conflict with the powers of darkness is unearthed

god is not the one holding your answer back

if answer is not forthcoming perceive you in prayer

keep on asking god

but don't ask in a desperate way

as if god needs to be cooked

know that every obstruction every lack of manifestation all right

it's warfare going on keep on asking

because you know him can have a good amen church

do you remember the story of the children of israel during the time of uh king nebuchadnezzar

that came because for many many years what happened the king of judah began to worship idols and

god warned him rising early and

god sent prophet of the prophet and

god sent prophet jeremiah to the king of judah and

warned him about the dangers of of his hard-heartedness and worshipping of idols

and all that and finally god says enough is enough and

god sent the king of babylon which is nebuchadnezzar came into the land of israel and

took captive all the people of judah plus the king and

jeremiah prophesied

at the time jeremiah by the way is a young prophet

probably a teenager

one time god said to him don't say you're a youth

i've put my words in your mouth to plan and to uproot to build and to destroy

it is my words in your mouth and

not you not how or how young you are

all right that was prophet jeremiah and

prophet jeremiah prophesied that israel would a judge be taken to captivity for 70 years

well one of the captives that were taken captive he was a young boy at that time was a young man by the name of daniel

well daniel lived through many kings in captivity until the 70th year

daniel let's read daniel 9 in the first year of his reign darius

said this i daniel understood by the books now god didn't speak to him he was studying his bible

i mean one of the biggest ways god speak to you is through his word

that's the main way all right now

he was daniel was a prophet as well but god

god showed him by books the bible the

i understood by the books the number of the years specified by the word of the lord through jeremiah the prophet that god would accomplish 70 years in the desolations of jerusalem

you know which year was this now 70th year when he read jeremiah's when daniel read jeremiah's prophecy all right

it was the 70th year judah was in captivity so in other words what hallelujah it's a final year

we are going home right

but look at the next verse then daniel says i set my face towards the lord god to make requests by prayer and supplications with fasting sex love and ashes

in other words even though god promised the captivity is only for 70 years he didn't sit down at his rocking chair

and say god hey sarah sarah whatever will be will be no he prayed for it to happen

why

because god loves participation

god loves the hand that opens

and say god let it happen lord

let it happen amen

are you listening church

don't just say it's god's real one all right but

if there's a hindrance pray ask god for it yeah

there's some things that happen to us automatically

even those things that happened to us automatically somebody prayed for you

your grandmother prayed for you

your brother in christ was praying in tongues

praying in the spirit not knowing what he's praying but

he was praying for you everything that you and i received today

the fact that we are here

we are saved

we are listening to god's word amen

when the world don't even know how precious god's word is

god is imparting wisdom

it's because your eyes are open because

somebody prayed for you

it's a result when you are praying

you become literally you you in the realm of god where you can travel anywhere

you can be anywhere and you really become no more a natural earthbound person but

you become a person who can be praying here and influence circumstances and

individuals in china

you can be praying down here

going to fly there you can be influencing circumstances in turkey in india

you can be praying down here

in fact situations in america

amazing god takes your the wings of your prayer all right and

god sends the answers

are you with me okay now

he saw jeremiah's prophecy

by the way if you look at jeremiah's prophecy

this the book of jeremiah this whole land shall be a desolation and astonishment and

this nation shall serve the king of babylon 70 years

this is where daniel got it from okay

the next verse it will come to pass after 70 years

god says i'll punish the king of babylon

so he knows that the end is coming

yet he prayed

he prayed that what god said would happen

will happen not because it will not happen but

because he wants to be part of it open hands

are you with me so

why do we take communion every sunday

because there's a crazy spirit out there and

i mean it's a crazy spirit

if you can kill you in an instant he will kill you

that's how much he hates you

the fact that he cannot kill you just like that tells us about how protected we all are

we take communion to remember what our lord did

because communion is actually like in the heavenly courts is is

is evidence and disputable evidence that even though we don't deserve the healing in and of ourselves

it was paid for by the blood of god's son

so every time we partake we enforce it

because satan is a lawyer

but so is jesus the bible says it's an advocate for us so

these things are legal you got to fight for it

even though someone violates your your your rights and all that okay

doesn't mean you can sit down there and play dead

someone stole something from you

it's gone what do you do

you sit on them play day no

you enforce it you take your place as god's covenant child

you don't just cry you take your place

two nights ago my wife and i thought we're gonna spend some time with jessica so we took some time with her and

uh had a good time went to little india had to say

that's like a pancake guys pancake indian pancake curry all right so we ate it

and uh you know we had a good time together fellowshipping and

all that and after that we were going shopping together at mustafa not too far away okay

and jessica at that time opposite me she's now having this uh plastic retainers for her teeth all right

so every time she eats she has to remove it okay

so she remove it she put it in front on a piece of tissue and for some reason

i said do a double layer i said you know because she forgot to bring her casing all right

so i put a double layer of tissue all right it's more protected that way i told her so

she put another layer all right wrap it up nicely and

told her mom because she didn't bring her you know her the box and

she said can you keep this for me

the mom the tissue and everything put it in her hand back

at the end before we leave we made a mess of the table all right

so as our customers we don't like to leave things messy you know

you learn this in japan when you go to japan right so you did everything and just arranged nicely for them okay and

then we took all the tissues down there

somehow wendy was in autopilot because remember this all right this kind of scenario styling happened where jessica passed her the tissue

and she was talking talking and then she i guess

she threw the tissue so only after we left almost in mustafa some time has passed we were you

just realized where is it

she asked then mother looked for it

i'll look for it

they said oh no because it all looks at tissue paper most likely you know and and

that tulsa shop is a busy shop and right

now more than an hour has passed all right

it's even busier

so she was a little bit sad and and you know

i was walking with them and

i was thinking when this is uh i said

shall i go back

she says it's gone

you know for sure it's gone so i

i just felt something in my heart that uh i am not

it's like a voice telling me are you willing to let it go

it's more than an hour and

it's a restaurant in a restaurant they take things and throw into what big garbage

it's a dump dump garbage huge garbage

can i think it's inside there so

i took the the vehicle and i went down

i received a call from my wife halfway

darling come back like okay just be with us

you know just let it go

somehow in my heart i hear like i hear a voice are you willing to let it go

so along the way i prayed and

i told god father all right you said in your word the things which are impossible with men are possible with you

so right now it is an impossible with men to find it

i say even my wife says it's impossible all right i said

it so in the natural you tell anyone all right

they'll say it's impossible and

i'm telling you lord in the natural is impossible but

i'm your covenant child and

father i'm asking you restore that retainer

restore it father i don't know how

i depart the thoughts come how he's already gone

if you go by logic you never ask amen

you know our biggest problem is this one so i said i don't know how lord

i saw the big garbage can

i don't know how long and who's gonna help

you just because he's lost down there no one's gonna dig for you

so anyway i went down there quite some time and

by now it's about nearly two hours has gone and and

the whole place is nighttime now

the whole place is filled up with people and

i spoke to the guy who who served us earlier and

he says oh i'm sorry you just booked me real fast and because he was serving

and he had you know a lot of orders and

the whole place seems packed in the natural it looks bleak

i waited down there for a while then he came

he told one of the helpers the cleaner lady all right

to look into my case and she asked me what was it

i said that you know explained to her wrap up you know it's a wrap up in the tissue

say money she said no no no no

she was quite excited i said no i need to tell her the truth

i know that money might motivate her even more

everything you know but but she will not be able to feel it you know what i'm saying so i

i said uh um it's a plastic

you can feel it's wrapped up in tissue she open up church

god is my witness

by now a lot of junk already all right but

two hours or two hours plus have passed

the place is packed

it's friday night

we went in friday evening

we went friday evening nice friday night the whole place jam-packed

even when we were there it was quite packed

we had to look for a seat

she took one tissue on top

it's a huge garbage can and

i look inside curry everything the indian shop bro

this is an indian shop and

i thought that i i

i really got a dick

you know asking am i prepared to do that

you know then

she took the first one

she pressed it nothing

tissue do the second one press nothing

i said it cannot be on top because on top

is all those who just ate

you know whatever and

she took the third one she pressed she said something

then i took it from her

it was well wrapped okay and

i open up it was jessica's retainer

now wait wait wait

how in the world did something most likely it was somewhere in between

if i go by logic

thank god when i come when you ask god you cannot go by logic all right

how the whole thing flowed to the top

i don't know how come more than two hours

if you jam packed on friday night all right that thing can be on top i don't know

one thing i know is that god the things we qualify because the things which are impossible with men are possible with god

it's just possible if man god says okay you let men do it but

the things which are impossible with men are possible

because that's why i told god again and again while i was driving there and

i said i'm your covenant child i'm not willing to let this go but

god by now is somebody no i can go by logic but

now he's like no that one Marta told jesus by now he stings four days already

he did her brother lazarus so

we cannot go by logic when it comes to wonderful omnipotent all-powerful god who flung the galaxies into place

who loves us with infinite love and

i believe he loves it when we take our place so those times when i took my place

i'm showing you a testimony where i took my place all right and

this was only it's the freshest testimony i have for you so

i wash it thoroughly and

i'm so glad it was the only time i thought jessica wrap it twice

and another thing is that

i didn't have to dig

somebody ducked for me

you know i appreciated her for that imagine first touch second touch third touch what's the touch

i mean it's like wow it's like i'm still reeling from it

are you willing to sit down and let it go when you've been stolen from or

even is your mistake all right remember this about god

he's a good god all right and

one of the things you can ask god is wisdom all right

look at this if any of you lack wisdom let him ask of god

you do not know what to pray for this one prayer

god tells you if any of you lack wisdom let him ask of god

now some of you will never pray this prayer

because you know you got it i can see that some of you act like you've got it already all right

but this word us is constant all right present active imperative by the way that means it's imperative

god didn't say if you lack wisdom

it's up to you whether you ask

it's imperative if any of you like wisdom

let him ask of god

you see i'm this one prayer

i pray all the time some of you i know

you pray this prayer because you are praying this prayer every day because

we had a serious last time on wisdom and

i taught you to pray this prayer every time but

what has become sometimes i'm afraid is this

you pray a cliche prayer

father to give me favor

father and give me wisdom and

give my cheering wisdom in jesus name amen okay cover it

it's not that kind of like you know when i was driving there's

father i'm your covenant child

father the things that are impossible it's impossible with men now it's possible with you

all right they kind of in your heart is in it

it's not that kind of i just pray wisdom

you know i just cover everything ah everything cover it it's not that kind of thing in the church it's not asking for wisdom god has a wisdom for every situation it doesn't come because someone has degrees to their name someone has you know they they they they are they are ceos or this of various companies wisdom doesn't come by experience wisdom doesn't come by accumulation of knowledge pharaoh dreamed the dream pharaoh had the knowledge of the dream but joseph had the wisdom to interpret the dream and i'm telling you it's amazing when you ask for wisdom god makes you see what you need to see we are inundated in this world today with myriads of information and you know that's why you never prepare your sermon through the internet you got to go by the old time way sit on the chair the open bible and ask god to speak to you if you try to see what other people are preaching and that kind of thing and all that is one of the coldest and and and and a legalistic way to prepare a message now you can get information here and there all right nothing wrong with that but you don't prepare through it there are myriads of information out there a lot of it but you know what god will cost you to see he will cause you to see what you need to see amen experience is not wisdom the lord giveth wisdom amen there are all people holding grudges until now just growing old does not make you wise getting knocked in the same area for many many years ought to say hey something wrong with this area all right but growing old does not make you wise wisdom comes from god so if any of you like wisdom let him what ask of god let him what ask god not your pastor us let him ask of god that who gives to all liberally and without reproach and it will be given to him now liberally without reproach liberally without reproach i want to give you real quick okay i i think i don't use the present all that kind of thing in the greek anymore just tell you what the greek says real quick here it says god who gives to all liberally the word gives this present active participle which means constantly giving god is constantly giving i'm telling you god is giving more than you are receiving many of us just sort of wasted in our lives because we have no open hands we are busy trying to perform with our stress and our our straining and our greater teeth to accomplish the very thing that god is giving for free okay so god is constantly giving you must have the picture of god when you come to god it's not like god is his hands are folded and says try try try harder no that's not god god doesn't have to be persuaded okay he gives constantly to all how does he give liberally god is a liberal god i'm telling you god is a liberal god you know that are you listening i said god is liberal and the word without reproach he gives to all constantly and it gives liberally and without reproach this is one word in the greek without reproach is reproach there's one word in the greek that means without fault finding and by the way without reproach here in the in the greek is also present active participle which means constantly not false finding god is a god that constantly gives and gives liberally and constantly never finds fault is that the god that you have in your mind is that the god that you grew up with god is a god who constantly does not find fault and we come to god this week i could just destroy this number one we just destroyed the first one why pray all right all right god knows everything why should i pray number two all right if i pray longer i hear my prayer we will destroy that right number three this third one is that well if i come to god know you as god knows me he can see a lot of his perfect eyes he can see a lot of faults in me i'm telling you god constantly does not find fault with you why because all your thoughts got imputed to jesus christ when he carried your sins at the cross and all the goodness and merits and worthiness and righteousness of christ god imputes to your account this is the gospel this is not religion this is the gospel amen we'll close with one verse are you with me people are you learning yes all right can i give two more two more two more all right we'll do an experiment okay all right the first one is romans 8 verse 32 it's a verse that you can meditate and meditate and every time you meditate you will squeeze some heavenly nutrient and juice out of this verse and he will bless you i'm telling you church all right to help you meditate real fast because we're only only about few minutes left i'm going to give you real fast okay i'm going to meditate but if you meditate this verse is not tara even after i give you you can still meditate on it until one day you just scream man i'm telling you you are screaming because there's so much in this verse look at this verse he who did not spare his own son but delivered him up for us all how shall he not with him also freely give us all things number one the first part he who did not spare his own son who is the he the father he did not spare his own son who is this son the son that he loves twice the bible tells us god open up the river jordan and say this is my beloved son in home i am well pleased god said that when jesus was baptized and then we have the highest place mount hermon when the father says this is my beloved son in home i am pleased hear him jesus please the father like no other man ever did because he lived as a man he pleased god as a man though he is fully god and the father says this is my beloved son who did god give up who did god not spare so that we can be spared the son that he loved in household 11. you know what god said to backsliding is israel god calls him ephraim there god says how shall i give you up ephraim because god loves ephraim god love israel and he called israel by his one tribal name ephraim there in hozier 11 god says how shall i give you up if right but he gave up his son he's the father all right change your image wrong believing will give you wrong living a wrong thinking will bring you to bondage right believing will give you right living and right results so believe right about god can you trust a god who gave up the best heaven has the son that he loved he will not spare his heart the pain don't forget there's nothing as sensitive as love and god is love how he must have pain god's heart to give up that son and delivered him to what to what to glory to fame no delivered him up to shame and spitting persecution hatred and finally death for us all can we trust this god then he goes on to say how shall he not with him don't forget with him is there with jesus also freely give us all things how shall he not with him the holy spirit is arguing with you his wisdom he wants you to see this divine logic that will bring you to a place of robust faith and have a right perspective of god let's reason together the holy spirit is an amazing uh a disputer he argues with you like this he argues from the greater to the lesser if god gave us the greater gift how much more the lesser gives you see pastor prince i want healing why would god hold with whole healing from you is healing greater than his son that he gave up for that he gave us give us his son no if god withhold healing healing is greater than jesus no healing providence is all lesser hey listen jesus is grace if god gave us the greater blessing of grace how will he not give us the lesser blessing of providence of healing abundant life the good life see you're worth god's son that's how you're worked that god didn't want to let you go because you're worth something stones you can just throw stones away all right they are worthless but gold is not you're not willing to part with gold it falls into into garbage you still pick it up thank god god spared me from that you know but friend don't measure yourself by your looks or by your money or your income shaky foundation and you become very small when you do that so actually god considers providence health family blessings that's lesser everything must be lesser than that one great gift another thing all this if you meditate through you you see the beauty of this verse you can squeeze and squeeze and it would be inexhaustible and it's no chance another thing was realized is this god gave that one great gift and asked no one asked if god gave him the greatest gift and asked how will he not give the lesser gifts for the asking amen are you following the holy spirit's reasoning here number three it cost god so much to give his son we know it cost god god is love is his own ly begotten son it cost god so much it cost god so much for that one great gift will he not give us the lesser gifts that cost him nothing but only for the pleasure of giving it the other geese don't cost anything i have one flower dies he makes another flower fourth if when did god give us his son when the church was around worshiping him there was no church when god gave his son when the whole world didn't even care even the pharisees god's chosen people on earth did not welcome him he was born in a manger when god gave us his son the bible says we were all enemies of god so think of this if god gave us that one great gift when we were enemies now that we are reconciled wow now that we are reconciled and have become like abraham friends of god how will he not give us the lesser gifts amen are you with me people yes can we squeeze some more look at the word freely the word freely tells us what the way god gives the man in which god gives it's without price it's without charge now if god was obliged to give he won't use the word freely if some of you deserve the gifts and the blessings god cannot use the word freely god will have to do it obligingly god will have to do it all right grudgingly but no god owes no one anything he's free to give whoever he wants to give amen and then how you receive it without price if you see but you must be obedient we all want to be obedient but it doesn't wait for you to be obedient because if obedience is the criteria it's no more freely all the people that came to jesus not even safe they got healed freely freely everyone is touching true power superman can never come close everyone got healed i'm telling you people power went out of him and healed them all freely freely now it does not say all right in the past tense how shall he not uh how can he not with him also free have given us freely all things let's tell you the past tense okay it does not say past tense it doesn't say um has he not has he not with him also freely given but stance doesn't say human right even though it's true god has given us everything when he gave us jesus but this is not what the verse is saying this verse is saying how shall say shall you know what shall present tense and future things from now on god gave us his son i'm telling you from now on how will he not present and in the future the forever and ever god will always show and manifest himself as the one great giver it gives us hope for now and the future it is not a past tense yes he has given us free even past tense yes yes but this is not this is what this verse is saying he's talking about the future whatever exigencies you might be faced with there's that thing okay two verses only all right two verses because you know why it's together look at this verse first chronicles four two verses okay are you ready say j bass say jay bass his name means pain what a name to name your son okay in those days when they give birth all right they will name the sun based on events that happen during that time or some significance in the family all right so obviously the mother bought him in pain he tells us that and jabez was more honorable than his brethren and his mother called him his name jabez in hebrew yabes which means pain saying because i bore him with sorrow or pain poor boy grew up being called hey pain should probably la hey guys i'm with pain look how guys pain is coming he was more honorable than his brethren there are people who tell us and are close with this you will find friends that will dispute this sermon because they come from backgrounds that tell you it's selfish to ask things for yourself how can you ask god to prosper you how can you ask god to protect you from evil evil is there some people get it some people don't you know it's like the draw in the casino no one knows christine's [ __ ] like that you never know you never know you never know health depends on your dna no more the lord christians are talking like that so they are saying you have no right and anyway those who pray only for themselves for their health for their prosperity for their family they are all selfish people is it true watch this this is the prayer jay best and the holy spirit deem it fit to record this down we'll close with this and jabez called on the god of israel saying oh that thou would have blessed me indeed can't harm me okay me i the personal pronoun oh that that word has blessed me indeed
