4 January 2015 - Pastor Joseph Prince Sermon Notes Online - New Creation Church Sermon Notes Online - The Year of His Restoration #theyearofhisrestoration
"However you've lost it, I will RESTORE if you have the FAITH to SAY in every situation you'll face this year "Father, restore!"" - Pastor Joseph Prince
God is a God of divine order.
God's word and God's will are one. They don't contradict each other.
The devil is trying to stop you from believing Psalm 91 and its promises of divine protection. Stop focusing on how you're at a forty-fold manifestation, and keep your eyes on the eventually hundred-fold manifestation.
Everything from God is received by faith.
When God shows you something, He wants you to do something about it. If He asks you to pray, do it, and be sure that there is a blessing in store for you.
Pastor Joseph Prince's dream that he received from God - Images of a lot of mayhem, and claws that represent nations trying to squeeze tiny Israel.
Zechariah 12:3 - Nations that rise against Jerusalem will find themselves afflicted in their own home country.
"And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it." (Zechariah 12:3 NKJV)
We must deliver the message that God wants us to deliver.
For New Creation Church congregation all over the world: God adds on to your life. The yearly themes of New Creation Church add on to your life, year by year.
Theme of the year: The Year of His Restoration. Not man doing the restoration, but God doing the restoration. When God restores, it's always greater in either quality, quantity, or both.
God treats the devil as a nobody.
Christ on the cross is the Love of God, paying ransom to the Holiness of God. God is a righteous God. He cannot sweep one iota of sin under the carpet, but He can blot the sins out through what Christ has done for us.
Joel 2:25 - The time and years that you spent in sin are wasted time. But God is so good that He will restore the years for you.
"“So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, The crawling locust, The consuming locust, And the chewing locust, My great army which I sent among you." (Joel 2:25 NKJV)
Isaiah 42:22 - Few people believe that God is a restoring God.
"But this is a people robbed and plundered; All of them are snared in holes, And they are hidden in prison houses; They are for prey, and no one delivers; For plunder, and no one says, “Restore!”" (Isaiah 42:22 NKJV)
Psalm 23:3 - God wants to restore your soul. The word, "soul" here, refers to your emotions and your mind.
"He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake." (Psalms 23:3 NKJV)
Jeremiah 30:17 - this word, "wounds" in Hebrew, refers to long-term health conditions. God will heal you of afflictions that have been with you for a long time.
"For I will restore health to you And heal you of your wounds,’ says the LORD, ‘Because they called you an outcast saying: “This is Zion; No one seeks her.” ’"(Jeremiah 30:17 NKJV)
Exodus 22:1 - Because of the crime done to a victim, he becomes a gainer in God's Law! The greater your loss, the greater God's restoration will be for you.
"“If a man steals an ox or a sheep, and slaughters it or sells it, he shall restore five oxen for an ox and four sheep for a sheep." (Exodus 22:1 NKJV)
1 Corinthians 9:8-11 - Paul preaches grace from The Law. Paul is talking about how people in full-time ministry should be remunerated well. God is more concerned about us, not animals.
"Do I say these things as a mere man? Or does not the law say the same also? For it is written in the law of Moses, “You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain.” Is it oxen God is concerned about?" (I Corinthians 9:8-9 NKJV)
1 Timothy 5:17-18 - "Double honor" speaks of remuneration. People in full-time ministry are to be paid well, especially the preachers of the word, according to The Law.
"Let the elders who rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the word and doctrine. For the Scripture says, “You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain,” and, “The laborer is worthy of his wages.”"(I Timothy 5:17-18 NKJV)
Leviticus 5:14-16 - Without blemish is outward perfection, without spot is inward perfection. This is a picture of Jesus, the spotless and perfect Lamb of God. We get 120% back for harm done to us.
"Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying: “If a person commits a trespass, and sins unintentionally in regard to the holy things of the LORD, then he shall bring to the LORD as his trespass offering a ram without blemish from the flocks, with your valuation in shekels of silver according to the shekel of the sanctuary, as a trespass offering. And he shall make restitution for the harm that he has done in regard to the holy thing, and shall add one-fifth to it and give it to the priest. So the priest shall make atonement for him with the ram of the trespass offering, and it shall be forgiven him." (Leviticus 5:14-16 NKJV)
Psalm 69:4 - Jesus restored for us even though He didn't steal anything. He is our substitute who died for all our sins so that we can be the righteousness of God.
"Those who hate me without a cause Are more than the hairs of my head; They are mighty who would destroy me, Being my enemies wrongfully; Though I have stolen nothing, I still must restore it." (Psalms 69:4 NKJV)
John 15:25 - A direct reference to Jesus. Jesus spoke these words Himself.
"But this happened that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, ‘They hated Me without a cause.’" (John 15:25 NKJV)
Adam was never filled with the Holy Spirit. Adam had the earth but he never had heaven. Adam owned the earth, but he wasn't a joint-heir with Jesus. Adam was not part of God's family. Adam was not a new creation that had eternal security.
In the Garden of Eden there was an area that was forbidden (eating from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil) and there was a serpent. It wasn't secure and it hung on the slender thread of Adam's own obedience. In heaven, there is nowhere that is forbidden and our security is eternal.
God has gained a family through the work of Christ. God has reaped a greater harvest through the work Christ than from His initial creation of man.
If Adam had remained obedient, Jesus would never have a bride, and the Holy Spirit would also never have us as His temple. God has gained through the fall.
Leviticus 6:4-6 - It would have been better for the devil not to attack you because now you have more restored back to you for your losses.
"then it shall be, because he has sinned and is guilty, that he shall restore what he has stolen, or the thing which he has extorted, or what was delivered to him for safekeeping, or the lost thing which he found, or all that about which he has sworn falsely. He shall restore its full value, add one-fifth more to it, and give it to whomever it belongs, on the day of his trespass offering. And he shall bring his trespass offering to the LORD, a ram without blemish from the flock, with your valuation, as a trespass offering, to the priest." (Leviticus 6:4-6 NKJV)
Romans 5:17 - We receive MUCH MORE for our losses.
"For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.)" (Romans 5:17 NKJV)
The 'law of first mention' in the Bible - Every-time something is mentioned for the first time, there is something to be learnt there.
Children lost in a miscarriage are growing up in heaven. They are not lost. A greater child can be restored to you.
Restoration will come as you rest in Jesus's finished work at the cross.
Psalm 23:1-3 - God wants you to rest and have plenty of food before He restores you. Rest and be still and let God take over.
"The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake." (Psalms 23:1-3 NKJV)
Ruth 3:18 - Sit still because Jesus will accomplish the work for you. He is the Heavenly Man seated at the right hand of our Heavenly Father. When you work, God rests. When you rest, God works. A life of Spirit-directed activity is one where you do just what God leads you to do, and no more than that. It's not about being lazy.
"Then she said, “Sit still, my daughter, until you know how the matter will turn out; for the man will not rest until he has concluded the matter this day.”" (Ruth 3:18 NKJV)
God will only reveal to you what is necessary for you. God will not satisfy curiosity-seekers.
Father in heaven, we come to You & we ask You for this Year 2015 to be a Year of GLORIOUS & FULL RESTORATION! We see darkness covering the earth but we thank You that Your light will be seen on us, Your glory will be seen upon us that our faces will shine like angels. We thank You that whatever we've lost (mental faculties, loved ones, relationship with You or the dimension we used to walk in with You, Father), we RECEIVE that RESTORATION 120%!
Spirit of God says : And I will say to you that in the days to come as you behold that which the world calls disaster, bad luck, you shall open your mouth & say unto Me "Father, restore!"
When you begin to experience that which the sons of Adam are afflicted with & you feel that pain, raging fear in your hearts, you shall look up to Me & say "Restore!"
If you hear the words of man saying "You are above the age for this to happen, you are no longer younger then you were for that to take place" yet I, the Lord say unto you "You shall say unto Me 'Restore!' " & I'll bring you back to the days of your youth. I will restore to you the years that the locusts have eaten quietly, secretly, surely & openly. However you've lost it, I will RESTORE if you have the FAITH to SAY in every situation you'll face this year "Father, restore!"
For the work has been accomplished, the victory has been wrought & glory is due to my Son for all the final victory & all the resounding praise down to eternity will be about what He as done & not about what you have accomplished.
Father, we bring ourselves right now under the love of God, under Your grace, under the shadow of the Most High, we bring our children & our loved ones under the shadow of the Shaddai & we declare You Father that You are our refuge, our fortress & we ask You Father to keep everyone standing before You today under Your shadow to be so close so near to You in the land of Goshen. We thank you Father for this closeness that is not wrought by our works but by the blood of the Lamb. We ask in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord & Savior to keep us & our loved ones safe, protected when we travel, fly & move around. Even in daily basis, place us at the right place at the right time on the right flight & right transport. Place us where the virus does not reach us . Cause us to be imbued & led & moved by Your Holy Spirit. We will speak by Your Holy Spirit. Restore our minds, our bodies, renew our youth, restore our health & our strength! In the name of Jesus, we ask that no one who wants to live long to serve Jesus, to be of use on this earth, let none die before their time. For those who want & for those who believe, say "Amen!"
Father, we stand before You totally dependent on You! Without You, a simple germ can kill us. We bring the nation of Israel before You & ask You to be her defense. Prosper Your people Lord with the revelation of their Messiah, our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ. Father, fulfill Your promise to Abraham & bring vindication to them for those who try to part their land. Though they're weak, their Redeemer is strong!
Father, we thank You for Your blessings this year! We give You praise, glory & honor! We love You! Lord Jesus, thank You for becoming our trespass offering, You have restored to God a 120% more praise, worship, glory & all that God lost through the sin of man. And You have restored to my family, to every one of us a 120% more health, soundness, immunity, incorruptibility, protection, favor, wisdom, prosperity & anointing! In the name of the Lord Jesus, a 120% more we receive it! And we will surely say "I am glad that happened & now I'm a gainer!" And all the people said, "Amen!""
