21 May 2017 - His Chastening Brings You Higher - Pastor Joseph Prince Sermon Notes Online - New Creation Church Sermon Notes Online
One word from God can change your life forever.
Even if you forget God's word, it will still work in you if you had received it.
If you're still anxious, worried or fearful about a certain area in your life, that area is still in darkness.
That means that God's word for that area of your life has not yet dropped into your heart.
It means that revelation for that area is lacking.
The revelation has to drop from our heads into our hearts.
Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies. The purpose for receiving more of God's word is for us to be set free from areas that we are fearful, worried or anxious about.
It is also to humble us.
If we treat others badly despite knowing God's word, it means that we're just accumulating knowledge.
We receive more of God's word also to know the Lord better through revelation.
Luke 13:23-25 - Jesus answered the question in this manner to say this: make sure that you're in.
There's no point talking about it if you're not in it.
“Then one said to Him, “Lord, are there few who are saved?” And He said to them, “Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able. When once the Master of the house has risen up and shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and knock at the door, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open for us,’ and He will answer and say to you, ‘I do not know you, where you are from,’” (Luke 13:23-25 NKJV)
