20 Mar 2016 - Palm Sunday: Send Salvation, Send Prosperity! - Pastor Joseph Prince Sermon Notes Online - New Creation Church Sermon Notes Online
When you are a believer, everywhere you go, it's like Heaven on earth! The Lord's protection is with you.
It is in the Lord that we have refuge and safety because He puts us in the right place at the right time.
Always address the Lord as your Refuge and your Hiding Place.
The most important event that took place in history is the cross.
There are 89 chapters in the four gospels. Out of the 89 chapters, there are only 4 chapters about Jesus' birth and the first 30 years of His life.
But 85 chapters are about His 3 and a half years of ministry on earth. 27 chapters are about the last days of His life on earth.
The world emphasizes Jesus' birth and they only see Him as a good person who existed, but the Holy Spirit emphasizes on Jesus' death and resurrection.
Jesus is not just a good Person. Jesus is either who He says He is, the Son of God, or He is the world's greatest liar. But we know that He is the Son of God.
The world will get darker and darker, but the church will get better and better, and brighter and brighter.
Jesus will return to this earth before the world messes up. The world will not end by a nuclear disaster.
When He returns at His Second Coming, Jesus' feet will touch the Mount of Olives and the mount will be split in half.
The Rapture is a bodily salvation. We will have a new body that is no longer subject to corruption and death. We are all looking forward to the Rapture.
Science tells us that the universe is still expanding. For what purpose? The universe is the playground for God's children!
Today is Palm Sunday which is 6 days before Jesus was crucified. Jesus went into Jerusalem riding on the colt of a young donkey.
He is a humble King. He won't come back riding on a donkey - Jesus will return riding a white horse!
There have been many dictators in history, but none of them can rule like Jesus, who will rule with kindness, righteousness and justice!
Daniel 9:21-26 - In the Old Testament, the phrase "a man greatly beloved" is used on Daniel.
Angel Gabriel is a messenger archangel. He was sent to Mary and also sent to Daniel. Angel Michael is a warring archangel. He still defends Israel today.
Daniel was in Babylon when this happened. Jerusalem was in ruins. Daniel was praying around 3pm.
70 weeks is not referring to days. It's talking about 70 prophetic weeks. 1 prophetic week is 7 years. Therefore 70 weeks is 490 years.
"Your people and your holy cit is referring to the Jews and the city of Jerusalem.
After Daniel's time, Queen Esther's husband, the King of Persia, made the announcement to rebuild Jerusalem. That starts the 70 weeks prophetic clock.
From the day the announcement to rebuild Jerusalem was made until Palm Sunday where Jesus came into Jerusalem being declared that He is King, there are 483 years.
The missing 7 years from the 490 years are the 7 years of tribulation in the future during the Great Tribulation.
We who are believers will not be here during the Great Tribulation because they will be taken to be with Jesus in the Rapture which happens before the Great Tribulation.
“yes, while I was speaking in prayer, the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, reached me about the time of the evening offering. And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, “O Daniel, I have now come forth to give you skill to understand. At the beginning of your supplications the command went out, and I have come to tell you, for you are greatly beloved; therefore consider the matter, and understand the vision: “Seventy weeks are determined For your people and for your holy city, To finish the transgression, To make an end of sins, To make reconciliation for iniquity, To bring in everlasting righteousness, To seal up vision and prophecy, And to anoint the Most Holy. “Know therefore and understand, That from the going forth of the command To restore and build Jerusalem Until Messiah the Prince, There shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; The street shall be built again, and the wall, Even in troublesome times. “And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself; And the people of the prince who is to come Shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end of it shall be with a flood, And till the end of the war desolations are determined.” (Daniel 9:21-26 NKJV)
Pray from your heart. The Father loves to hear your voice. Something happens every time you go to God.
The Bible says that it is a new and living way. No one who has an encounter with Jesus ever comes back the same.
You don't have to pray Jeremiah's prayer - it was good for Jeremiah, or Daniel's prayer - it was good for Daniel.
David's prayer was good for David, Peter's prayer was good for Peter. Just pray from your heart!
Jesus was not a pale, pasty and weak-looking man like the religious paintings show.
He worked as a carpenter and imagine what that heavy lifting of huge blocks of wood does for His muscles!
He said "Follow Me", and the rough, uncouth fishermen followed Him. Jesus is a man's Man!
Psalm 118:24-26 - These verses are referring specifically to the day (Palm Sunday) where Jesus rode on the young donkey into Jerusalem.
When Jesus comes, salvation comes. When Jesus comes, He sends prosperity! The Hebrew word for "prosperity" here is "Saliak". It is the most-often used word for prosperity in the Bible.
“This is the day the LORD has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it. Save now, I pray, O LORD; O LORD, I pray, send now prosperity. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD! We have blessed you from the house of the LORD.” (Psalms 118:24-26 NKJV)
Blame is a game that man has played ever since man fell in the Garden of Eden. Adam blamed both God and Even for his sin.
Before we place blame, think about whether the mistake is our fault. We should be quick to blame ourselves and not others.
Psalms 118:1 - Why give thanks? Because He is good! The Hebrew word for "mercy" is "hesed" which is grace.
When you praise God, the enemy cannot move in your life.
“Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.” (Psalms 118:1 NKJV)
Luke 19:37-45 - The disciples were praising Jesus and calling out to Him to save them, but the Pharisees and the leaders of Israel did not know the time of their visitation.
Even the stones had more compassion than the hard hearts of the Pharisees.
Jesus wept over Jerusalem. He loves us. "In this your day" is referring to the "day that the Lord has made" (Psalms 118), which is Palm Sunday.
“Then, as He was now drawing near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works they had seen, saying: “ ‘Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the LORD!’ Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” And some of the Pharisees called to Him from the crowd, “Teacher, rebuke Your disciples.” But He answered and said to them, “I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out.” Now as He drew near, He saw the city and wept over it, saying, “If you had known, even you, especially in this your day, the things that make for your peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. For days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment around you, surround you and close you in on every side, and level you, and your children within you, to the ground; and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not know the time of your visitation.” Then He went into the temple and began to drive out those who bought and sold in it,” (Luke 19:37-45 NKJV)
Mark 11:1-7 - Jesus loved Bethany. It was a home for Jesus away from home. Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead in Bethany. The path of the place where two ways met is still there in Jerusalem.
“And when they came nigh to Jerusalem, unto Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he sendeth forth two of his disciples, And saith unto them, Go your way into the village over against you: and as soon as ye be entered into it, ye shall find a colt tied, whereon never man sat; loose him, and bring him. And if any man say unto you, Why do ye this? say ye that the Lord hath need of him; and straightway he will send him hither. And they went their way, and found the colt tied by the door without in a place where two ways met; and they loose him. And certain of them that stood there said unto them, What do ye, loosing the colt? And they said unto them even as Jesus had commanded: and they let them go. And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their garments on him; and he sat upon him.” (Mark 11:1-7 KJV)
Matthew 23:37-39 - God waits for you to be willing to receive His blessings. He doesn't force them upon you.
40 years after Jesus said these words, the Temple in Jerusalem was destroyed in AD 70.
In AD 70, the son of the Roman Emperor, General Titus, commanded his soldiers not to destroy the temple.
When the Roman soldiers threw fire upon the temple, the gold ornaments on top of the temple started to melt, and the gold melted and flowed in between the cracks of the stones.
The Roman solders overturned and threw down the stones, breaking them to get the gold.
The Son of God, Jesus, said not one stone will be left upon another. Jesus' word came to pass.
Here, Jesus refers to the temple as "your house", it's no longer referred to as His house.
If the presence of God did not leave the temple, the temple cannot be destroyed.
One day, Israel will be in so much pressure and they will shout "Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord" and Jesus will return for them, and Israel will see His face.
““O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing! See! Your house is left to you desolate; for I say to you, you shall see Me no more till you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!’ ”” (Matthew 23:37-39 NKJV)
In these last days, do we avoid flying on planes just because of danger? No that's regressing, not progressing.
The right way is to seek the Lord as our place of refuge. You can even die in Singapore or wherever your country is, if you don't have the Lord's protection.
Matthews 21:12-16 - It's not wrong to sell things in church. When God gave Joseph the wisdom to prepare for the famine, he did not give food away to the farmers.
He sold the food to them. What Joseph did is called Capitalism. It gives employment.
Communism frowns upon Capitalism, but Capitalism is God's way.
Jesus cleansed the temple so that the blind and the lame could come and be healed by Him.
When God is angry, it's not about Him, He's concerned for you. When God is jealous, it's not about Him, He's jealous for you!
“Then Jesus went into the temple of God and drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves. And He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you have made it a ‘den of thieves.’ ” Then the blind and the lame came to Him in the temple, and He healed them. But when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that He did, and the children crying out in the temple and saying, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” they were indignant and said to Him, “Do You hear what these are saying?” And Jesus said to them, “Yes. Have you never read, ‘Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have perfected praise’?”” (Matthew 21:12-16 NKJV)
It's not wrong for a pastor to draw salary from his church, but Pastor Joseph Prince chooses not to draw a salary from the church and not to sit on the church council to keep this area of his life squeaky clean.
Pastor Prince earns his income from the sales of his intellectual property.
Matthew 22:41-46 - For 5 days, the Pharisees, the Sadducees, the Herodians examined Jesus the Lamb of God.
They tried to find faults in Him, but they found no blemish in Him.
“While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, saying, “What do you think about the Christ? Whose Son is He?” They said to Him, “ The Son of David.” He said to them, “How then does David in the Spirit call Him ‘Lord,’ saying: ‘The LORD said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool” ’? If David then calls Him ‘Lord,’ how is He his Son?” And no one was able to answer Him a word, nor from that day on did anyone dare question Him anymore.” (Matthew 22:41-46 NKJV)
The joys of heaven are so much greater than what we have here on earth. God will not take something from us that's best to give us something that's only great.
God will always take something great away and give us something that's best!
II Samuel 5:6-8 - David hated the blind and the lame. On the other hand, Jesus the Son of David, healed the blind and the lame. Jesus exceeds King David.
“And the king and his men went to Jerusalem against the Jebusites, the inhabitants of the land, who spoke to David, saying, “You shall not come in here; but the blind and the lame will repel you,” thinking, “David cannot come in here.” Nevertheless David took the stronghold of Zion (that is, the City of David). Now David said on that day, “Whoever climbs up by way of the water shaft and defeats the Jebusites (the lame and the blind, who are hated by David’s soul), he shall be chief and captain. ” Therefore they say, “The blind and the lame shall not come into the house.”” (II Samuel 5:6-8 NKJV)
We are saved by grace. God drew us to Him. We see only because God made us see.
A mixture of Law and grace cannot save the Jewish people. Only sharing the gospel of grace can save them.
