13 November 2016 - As Jesus Is, So Are We In This World - Pastor Joseph Prince Sermon Notes Online - New Creation Church Sermon Notes Online
2017 will be the 500th year since the Reformation. The Reformation is nothing more than the restoration of the gospel of grace.
The Bible from Genesis to Revelation is all God-breathed. God used secretaries and their personalities to write the books of the Bible.
In the Gospel of John, "the disciple whom Jesus loved" is written 5 times at the end of the book, and it's written by the man who lived in Jesus' bosom (love).
"An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth" is God-breathed but it's antiquated and not for our time - it's not the gospel.
The Hebrew calendar has in this year 777. In the Gregorian calendar, next year is the 500th year since the Reformation.
God uses things of no repute and low esteem in the eyes of man to confound the great and educated.
The heroes in Jesus' parables are the lost, the last and the least.
It's not how much faith you have, it's who your faith is in. If you turn to Jesus, He says that you have great faith.
I John 4:17 - God's love has culminated in our lives because of what Jesus has done for us.
The day of judgement refers to the future event of the "Bema Seat of Christ", where God will give us rewards.
At the Bema Seat of Christ we will be standing before Jesus in our glorified bodies.
Will you present Jesus - gold, silver and precious stones to God, or man's effort - hay, straw?
We will never be judged because Jesus was judged in our place at the cross. We are not standing there to be condemned - The Judge is our righteousness.
We will never go through the Great White Throne Judgement - where unbelievers are condemned to the lake of fire.
The word "judgement" in the verse means "crisis".
“Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.” (I John 4:17 NKJV)
Jesus is seated down at the right hand of the Father as (representing) us. Have the "Throne-Life attitude".
The Father wants us to sit down and rest until He puts all our enemies at our feet as our footstools.
In ancient Israel, the High Priest stands for all Israel. That's why Jesus is not called our Prophet, but our High Priest.
The prophet represents God to the people whereas the high priest represents the people to God.
Jesus' blood speaks better things than the blood of Abel. Jesus' blood speaks forgiveness, blessings and all good things into your life.
The fact that Jesus is seated at the Father's right hand today proves that all our sins were purged and we have complete forgiveness in Him.
Sitting down means resting. Jesus cannot sit down if our sins are not forgiven.
God's priority is not on creation, but on redemption. In creation, what God created was fallen, but in redemption, it was restored much more back to God.
In the Tabernacle, there is a table of shoal bread but there is no seat. The high priest of ancient Israel cannot sit down and has to keep working.
Jesus is not just 100% God but also 100% Man. A Man made it to heaven - Jesus the Heavenly Man is seated at the right hand of the Father.
The spirit of antichrist says that Jesus never came in the flesh.
We were all born in the flesh, whereas Jesus is the only One who came in the flesh - "came" suggests a pre-existence.
A sinner sometimes does good, but he is a sinner. A believer sometimes sins, but he is a believer.
In ancient Israel, if the high priest is good and the people are bad, Israel will still be accepted before God.
However if the people are good and the high priest is bad, Israel will be rejected before God and Israel can expect to have a really bad and gloomy year ahead.
Even if the current high priest of Israel is good, he will die one day. If the successor is bad, then Israel can look forward to bad times ahead.
But our High Priest Jesus lives by the power of an endless life. He is our perfect High Priest forever!
Pastor Prince said not to judge people (Referring to President-Elect Donald Trump) before their time and that many blessings are coming towards America.
David took Goliath's head from the Valley of Elah miles and miles away to Jerusalem to bury it.
Rabbinical teaching says that there is a little mountain that formed over where Goliath's head was buried, called "Golgotha".
At Golgotha, a greater giant was defeated. Jesus crushed Satan's head at the cross.
Because of our flesh, sometimes we have sinful and evil thoughts.
The devil always comes and points you to yourself. The Holy Spirit always points you to Jesus.
The question is not "Am I good enough?", it is "Is He (Jesus) good enough?".
We are joint-heirs with Jesus. Jesus is our investment.
Cleopas and his wife were downcast while walking on the Road to Emmaus because their eyes were not on Jesus.
Jesus said to them "Fools and slow of heart to believe" - two indictments against the church today.
Calling them "Fools" suggests that they had a lack of knowledge. We need to grow in the knowledge of Jesus and believe in Him.
If you are sick, say "As He is, so am I in this world". You may not see immediate manifestation of healing, but keep on declaring it.
The world only depends on creation - exercise, diet, etc, but we have Jesus - we can depend on redemption.
When Jesus bore our sins, He bore both male and female sins upon Himself. We can confidently receive healing for whatever condition that is affecting us.
II Corinthians 3:18 - Moses veiled his face because the glory of God on his face was passing away, and if the children of Israel saw the glory disappear,
they would think that there was something wrong with Moses. But that leads to a religion of covering up.
“But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.” (II Corinthians 3:18 NKJV)
Our disqualifications are our qualifications for receiving God's grace.
Mark 6:45-48 - Jesus had just multiplied the loaves and fed the multitudes and left 12 basketfuls of loaves as leftover.
Jesus was probably on Mount Arbel. Jesus departed to the mountain to pray -
Jesus is at the Father's right hand today, active and praying for us, and we are down here being assaulted by the winds and the waves here on earth.
The word "straining" means "stress".
The fourth watch of the night is the darkest part of the night. In the darkest hour, Jesus came to His disciples.
Jesus sees us and knows what we are going through. He is attentively watching us.
“Immediately He made His disciples get into the boat and go before Him to the other side, to Bethsaida, while He sent the multitude away. And when He had sent them away, He departed to the mountain to pray. Now when evening came, the boat was in the middle of the sea; and He was alone on the land. Then He saw them straining at rowing, for the wind was against them. Now about the fourth watch of the night He came to them, walking on the sea, and would have passed them by.” (Mark 6:45-48 NKJV)
Matthew 14:25-33 - The waters became pavement to Jesus' feet. Jesus will walk over your troubles and over whatever you are worried about.
"Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid" is "I AM" in the original - that is how the God of the burning bush introduced Himself to Moses.
Some of the disciples were experienced fishermen but they were caught in the storm. We cannot depend on our own strength, degrees, etc.
What has strong waves and howling winds got to do with whether you can walk on the water or not?
You mean you can walk on the water if the water is still and there's not even a ripple? No. When we step into unbelief we become stupid.
As long as Peter's eyes were on Jesus, he became as Jesus is.
Jesus on the sea is Providence. Jesus in the boat is presence.
“Now in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went to them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out for fear. But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid.” And Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.” So He said, “Come.” And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus. But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, “Lord, save me!” And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased. Then those who were in the boat came and worshiped Him, saying, “Truly You are the Son of God.”” (Matthew 14:25-33 NKJV)
Jesus healed the blind man by putting clay over his eyes and asked him to wash his eyes at the Pool of Siloam (Redemption).
In the natural, if you put clay over your eyes you become blinder.
What creation cannot do, redemption did. What the Law cannot do, grace supplied.
Ephesians 5:30 - We are members of His corporeal body, not just the mystical interpretation of it.
“For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones.” (Ephesians 5:30 NKJV)
Isaiah 63:9 - To love someone is to identify yourself with them.
When the children of Israel were suffering in the fiery furnace of Egypt, God appeared to Moses in the form of a burning bush because He was identifying with their suffering.
When the children of Israel were living in tents, God dwelled with them in a tent too, in the Tabernacle.
When the children of Israel were going into battle led by Joshua, God appeared as a Commander.
When the children of Israel lived in dwellings of stone, God dwelled in the Temple.
God is not far away in heaven, He dwells here with us.
God gave us His position and all good things.
“In all their affliction He was afflicted, And the Angel of His Presence saved them; In His love and in His pity He redeemed them; And He bore them and carried them All the days of old.” (Isaiah 63:9 NKJV)
I Corinthians 6:15 - Respect your body. We are literally members (part of the body) of Christ.
Having this revelation will give us the confidence that when we lay hands and pray for someone, it's as good as Jesus doing it Himself. How powerful will that be!
“Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not!” (I Corinthians 6:15 NKJV)
I John 3:2-3 - When Jesus come back for us, we will have a glorified body like His. If we keep seeing Jesus in the Scriptures, we shall become like Jesus.
“Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.” (I John 3:2-3 NKJV)
God made Jesus to be the measure of our blessings.
