24 July 2016 - Possess the Power to Prosper in All Things (Part 2) - Pastor Joseph Prince Sermon Notes Online - New Creation Church Sermon Notes Online
Some people believe that they are saved by good works. No, we are saved by believing in Jesus Christ.
However, man looks at our works.
When a boss accesses the performance and is deciding on how much bonus to give to his employees, he bases it on their works.
Can a boss access their performance by grace and give all of them equal bonus and give all of them the highest CEO position, disregarding their works?
No it's not possible. In life you are rewarded based on your works.
The reason someone can do his job with a smile is because of knowing the revelation that God's grace is working and flowing through him/her, and the grace given to him/her is not in vain.
God will teach you from within. You don't need to play Pokemon anymore now that you are 20 years old.
Live a holy life that is taught by grace, and be zealous for good works. Dead works are works that are done to try to justify oneself before God.
In almost every epistle of the Apostle Paul, he refers to the Rapture, and the Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Rapture is "harpazo" in Greek which means "snatching away".
There will be a judgment but it will not be on believers. It will be on the world.
The Rapture was a mystery. It was hidden but now is revealed to believers.
In the Rapture, we are not going up to heaven with just our spirit and soul, but with a new spiritual body that cannot die, cannot decay, and cannot feel tired.
Some people believe that only obedient believers will go up in the Rapture,
but the Apostle Paul said that all believers who are alive and remain will go up in the Rapture. That's the only criteria to go up in the Rapture.
Animals all fell when Adam fell, because Adam was the appointed ruler of the earth.
Animals became carnivorous when Adam fell. But animals will no longer devour each other when Jesus returns to rule.
The Scriptural position is not to look back to death but to look forward to the "Blessed Hope", which is the glorious coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.
When you say sorry to others or to God, it is not what makes God forgive you.
You were forgiven of all your past, present and future sins when you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
We should focus on confessing that we are the righteousness of God in Christ.
Our salvation doesn't hinge on confessing all our sins.
We don't confess our individual sins to be forgiven by God, but we do it for our own psychological need.
When you sin, confess that you are the righteousness of God in Christ. That's how you can overcome sins and addictions.
It's not your repentance that makes God good to you.
Under the Old Covenant, you have to repent first before you can experience God's goodness.
Under the New Covenant of Grace, it's God's goodness that leads you to repentance.
When God unleashes prosperity and blessings your way upon your career and/or ministry, no one can stop it.
Your healing has nothing to do with what you have done, but it's because of what Jesus has done at the cross.
