14 September 2014 - Pastor Joseph Prince Sermon Notes - New Creation Church Sermon Notes - Speak Life and See Good Days
* Pastor Prince taught about Gematria in this sermon, which you can find out a brief idea of what it is here.
Roman 5:20-21 - Where sins increased (in terms of number of sins), grace huperperisseuo (overflowing with somemore on top of that).
"Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more, so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." (Romans 5:20, 21 NKJV)
Reckon (take it) that you're dead unto sin once and for all. Jesus was born in the likeness of sinful flesh. He had no sin in Him. He died to the guilt and condemnation of sin, not to the power of sin.
We are dead to condemnation first, before we are empowered to sin no more.
If you are under the Law in any way, you are under its curse unless you are fulfilling all its requirements.
You refuse to accept how bad our sinful flesh is if you still try to keep the Law. The only way to be justfied is through grace.
Romans 10:4-10 - Christ is the end of the Law. What you speak with your mouth will eventually drop into your heart and control you.
"For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes. For Moses writes about the righteousness which is of the law, “The man who does those things shall live by them.” But the righteousness of faith speaks in this way, “Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend into heaven?’ ” (that is, to bring Christ down from above ) or, “ ‘Who will descend into the abyss?’ ” (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead). But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." (Romans 10:4-10 NKJV)
Deut 30:11-15 - The Law is to see and do it. Grace is to speak it and believe it and you'll see it.
"“For this commandment which I command you today is not too mysterious for you, nor is it far off. It is not in heaven, that you should say, ‘Who will ascend into heaven for us and bring it to us, that we may hear it and do it?’ Nor is it beyond the sea, that you should say, ‘Who will go over the sea for us and bring it to us, that we may hear it and do it?’ But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may do it. “See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil," (Deuteronomy 30:11-15 NKJV)
Beginning of Gematria teachings:
Genesis 1 - God already said there'll be 6000 years before Jesus comes again to rule for 1000 years with the saints.
II Peter 3:8-9 - With The Lord 1 day = 1000 years. God is so patient with us because He delays the Second Coming of Christ so that more people can be saved. That's how much He loves and cares for us!
"But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance." (II Peter 3:8-9 NKJV)
The antichrist will come from Europe; 6 is the number of man. 666 is man in its most depraved nature, empowered by the forces of darkness.
"Here is wisdom. Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred three score and six." (Revelation 13:18)
5 is the number of grace.
2 is the number of house.
Child: Yeled (44)
10 is the number of the Law (a.k.a. The Ten Commandments).
Father: Ab (3) Mother: Em (41) Father (3) plus Mother (41) = Child (44)
Hand: Yad (14) [our hand has 14 pivot joints]
Leviticus 25:10 - under the Law, every 50th year, you will be liberated. You shall return: tashuvu (708) vav (6) is missing. (1948) 5708 is the year the Jews were freed. 6 million Jews were missing.
"And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee for you; and each of you shall return to his possession, and each of you shall return to his family." (Leviticus 25:10 NKJV)
The Year "2014" - I have set before you this day life and good. (from Deut 30:15)
Luke 4:17-20 -Jesus read Isaiah 61:1-2 and closed the book without reading "And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn". Jesus's first coming is not to bring vengeance, but salvation to all who believe. He will come again to bring the day of vengeance to the unbelievers at His Second Coming.
"“The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, Because the LORD has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn," (Isaiah 61:1-2 NKJV)
1 Peter 3:10 - Our good days are many, our attacks our short, our blessings are long.
"For “He who would love life And see good days, Let him refrain his tongue from evil, And his lips from speaking deceit." (I Peter 3:10 NKJV)
Proverbs 18:21 - A study was conducted and it was found that the state with the largest population of healthy people is Israel. They always proclaim, "To life!". They speak life over themselves.
"Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit." (Proverbs 18:21 NKJV)
2 Cor 6:2 - Dektos - the most blessed time when salvation and free favors of God profusely abound. Now is the time! We don't have to wait to receive our blessings. Day of salvation (1000 years).
"For He says: “In an acceptable time I have heard you, And in the day of salvation I have helped you.” Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation." (II Corinthians 6:2 NKJV)
Always judge behavior by our state, not by our standing. Our standing is forever righteous in Christ once we believe and confess that Jesus is Lord.
Acts 3:1-2 - ninth hour (3pm) -there is no more specific hour for prayer anymore. We can pray at all times, and God hears us.
"Now Peter and John went up together to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth hour." (Acts 3:1 NKJV)
Acts 10:1-3 - Like Cornelius, we can pray without ceasing, and God hears us.
"There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of what was called the Italian Regiment, a devout man and one who feared God with all his household, who gave alms generously to the people, and prayed to God always. About the ninth hour of the day he saw clearly in a vision an angel of God coming in and saying to him, “Cornelius!”" (Acts 10:1-3, NKJV)
