16 August 2015 - Pastor Joseph Prince Sermon Notes Online - New Creation Church Sermon Notes Online - Unlock Redemption's Blessings In Your Life
When you believe right you will live right.
When the Lord speaks, it's simple but powerful.
God's grace is heaven's best for man's worst.
The value of something is worth how much someone is willing to pay for it. God sees us as worth the price of His Son.
Only the blood of Jesus can redeem your soul.
Ephesians 1:7-8 - As believers, we HAVE redemption and we HAVE forgiveness already, right now. It is in the present-active tense. We are forgiven not out of, but ACCORDING TO the riches of His grace. God gave us His forgiveness in His wisdom and prudence! God's forgiveness has a powerful, sanctifying effect in our lives.
"In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence," (Ephesians 1:7-8 NKJV)
The world is not trying to find a way into sin, they are trying to find a way out. Even if they are enjoying themselves in their sin, they are feeling guilty.
A preacher can't stand in the pulpit if he hates people. If a person has cancer, we hate the cancer, not the person. Likewise, we must hate the sin, not the person.
When you are born-again, you are born-again FOREVER, and you're enjoying eternal life - you will never be thrown into hell.
Jesus used many titles to refer to Himself, but the one He used the most is the phrase "Son of man", because He wants us and the devil to know that He has come to be our Kinsman-Redeemer.
Leviticus 25:25 - God created man to be wealthy. God crowned (To crown in Hebrew is "atar" - A surrounding clothing) man with glory and honor. Adam forfeited all his wealth and glory by sinning against God. Redeem in Hebrew is "Goel". To redeem means "to buy back". The one who redeems is called a redeemer. Kinsman-redeemer means "a relative who can redeem". A kinsman-redeemer has to be wealthy, able, and willing. Jesus came to earth as a Man because He had to be human, our relative, in order to be our Kinsman-Redeemer. Jesus chose to become our Relative!
"‘If one of your brethren becomes poor, and has sold some of his possession, and if his redeeming relative comes to redeem it, then he may redeem what his brother sold." (Leviticus 25:25 NKJV)
Even if a non-believer is financially rich, he is still a poor man who has a lot of money.
God did not have no choice but to send Jesus to be our sacrifice for our sins. God has the choice to wipe us out if He wants to. He did not do that, because He loves us.
II Corinthians 8:9 - Jesus is rich!
"For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich." (II Corinthians 8:9 NKJV)
Proverbs 23:11 - Jesus is willing to redeem us.
"For their Redeemer is mighty; He will plead their cause against you." (Proverbs 23:11 NKJV)
Hebrews 7:25 - Jesus is able to redeem us.
"Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them." (Hebrews 7:25 NKJV)
A 'freethinker' is not free to think. But when Jesus sets you free, you are free indeed!
Leviticus 25:47-49 - Jesus came as our Brother to redeem us. Man is unable to redeem himself even if he wanted to.
"‘Now if a sojourner or stranger close to you becomes rich, and one of your brethren who dwells by him becomes poor, and sells himself to the stranger or sojourner close to you, or to a member of the stranger’s family, after he is sold he may be redeemed again. One of his brothers may redeem him; or his uncle or his uncle’s son may redeem him; or anyone who is near of kin to him in his family may redeem him; or if he is able he may redeem himself." (Leviticus 25:47-49 NKJV)
The Old Testament is made up of prophets, judges, priests and kings. It has proved that man is unable to save himself. Christ is our Righteousness!
Don't trust in creation to make you healthy. All creation has fallen, even organic food. Even if you run daily, you may be fit, but that does not mean that you are healthy. Take communion with the revelation of your redemption in Christ, and health will spring forth readily in your life.
Exodus 15:1-18 - The first song written in the Bible, "The Song of Moses" is a song of redemption, written after God had saved the children of Israel from the Egyptians at the Red Sea.
"Then Moses and the children of Israel sang this song to the LORD, and spoke, saying: “I will sing to the LORD, For He has triumphed gloriously! The horse and its rider He has thrown into the sea! The LORD is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation; He is my God, and I will praise Him; My father’s God, and I will exalt Him. The LORD is a man of war; The LORD is His name. Pharaoh’s chariots and his army He has cast into the sea; His chosen captains also are drowned in the Red Sea. The depths have covered them; They sank to the bottom like a stone. “Your right hand, O LORD, has become glorious in power; Your right hand, O LORD, has dashed the enemy in pieces. And in the greatness of Your excellence You have overthrown those who rose against You; You sent forth Your wrath; It consumed them like stubble. And with the blast of Your nostrils The waters were gathered together; The floods stood upright like a heap; The depths congealed in the heart of the sea. The enemy said, ‘I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; My desire shall be satisfied on them. I will draw my sword, My hand shall destroy them.’ You blew with Your wind, The sea covered them; They sank like lead in the mighty waters. “Who is like You, O LORD, among the gods? Who is like You, glorious in holiness, Fearful in praises, doing wonders? You stretched out Your right hand; The earth swallowed them. You in Your mercy have led forth The people whom You have redeemed; You have guided them in Your strength To Your holy habitation. “The people will hear and be afraid; Sorrow will take hold of the inhabitants of Philistia. Then the chiefs of Edom will be dismayed; The mighty men of Moab, Trembling will take hold of them; All the inhabitants of Canaan will melt away. Fear and dread will fall on them; By the greatness of Your arm They will be as still as a stone, Till Your people pass over, O LORD, Till the people pass over Whom You have purchased. You will bring them in and plant them In the mountain of Your inheritance, In the place, O LORD, which You have made For Your own dwelling, The sanctuary, O Lord, which Your hands have established. “The LORD shall reign forever and ever.” (Exodus 15:1-18 NKJV)
Revelation 15:2-4 - The redeemed in heaven sing the Song of Moses - the song of redemption.
"And I saw something like a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who have the victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God. They sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying: “Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty! Just and true are Your ways, O King of the saints! Who shall not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your name? For You alone are holy. For all nations shall come and worship before You, For Your judgments have been manifested.”" (Revelation 15:2-4 NKJV)
II Corinthians 4:3-4 - The devil is the "god of this age". There is no need for the devil to blind people from the gospel if it wasn't beautiful or exciting. The gospel is not boring, it is EXCITING and it is God's love for us!
"But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them." (II Corinthians 4:3-4 NKJV)
Jeremiah 32:6 - Hanamel is Jeremiah's cousin. Hanamel means "God's favor". Shallum, Hanamel's father's name, means "payment". The price was paid for our peace. God's favor (Hanamel) is product of payment (Shallum).
"And Jeremiah said, “The word of the LORD came to me, saying, ‘Behold, Hanamel the son of Shallum your uncle will come to you, saying, “Buy my field which is in Anathoth, for the right of redemption is yours to buy it. ” ’ Then Hanamel my uncle’s son came to me in the court of the prison according to the word of the LORD, and said to me, ‘Please buy my field that is in Anathoth, which is in the country of Benjamin; for the right of inheritance is yours, and the redemption yours; buy it for yourself.’ Then I knew that this was the word of the LORD. So I bought the field from Hanamel, the son of my uncle who was in Anathoth, and weighed out to him the money—seventeen shekels of silver. And I signed the deed and sealed it, took witnesses, and weighed the money on the scales. So I took the purchase deed, both that which was sealed according to the law and custom, and that which was open; and I gave the purchase deed to Baruch the son of Neriah, son of Mahseiah, in the presence of Hanamel my uncle’s son, and in the presence of the witnesses who signed the purchase deed, before all the Jews who sat in the court of the prison. “Then I charged Baruch before them, saying, ‘Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: “Take these deeds, both this purchase deed which is sealed and this deed which is open, and put them in an earthen vessel, that they may last many days.” For thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: “Houses and fields and vineyards shall be possessed again in this land.”" (Jeremiah 32:6-15 NKJV)
Hebrews 11:1 - Faith is our title deed, the proof that we will receive what we hope for. Even if you don't see your healing yet, your faith is the proof of your healing that is going to manifest!
"NOW FAITH is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses]." (Hebrews 11:1 AMP)
Jesus's redemptive work at the cross is not making payment to the devil. The cross is the grace and love of God making payment to the justice of God.
The church is not the main subject in the Book of Revelation.
Revelation 5:1-10 - The scroll was in the hand of God the Father. The strong angel cried out as the earth was usurped by the devil. It is bad news as long as the scroll remains sealed. John turned to see the Lion and he saw the Lamb. Jesus conquered on the cross as a Lamb. We are redeemed from addictions, poverty, sickness, physical death, eternal death and more! Jesus wants to be in the midst of our lives! The seven horns and seven eyes represents Jesus's perfect strength and power. Jesus's blood redeems people of all nations, tongues and tribes. Believers are kings and priests to God, and we shall reign on the new earth that will be created.
"And I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a scroll written inside and on the back, sealed with seven seals. Then I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll and to loose its seals?” And no one in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll, or to look at it. So I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open and read the scroll, or to look at it. But one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals.” And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth. Then He came and took the scroll out of the right hand of Him who sat on the throne. Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, And have redeemed us to God by Your blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, And have made us kings and priests to our God; And we shall reign on the earth.”" (Revelation 5:1-10 NKJV)
When Jesus loosed the seals, it released evil spirits. His redemption frees us from evil spirits.
The price for the forfeiture of the earth has already been paid, but the devil is refusing to give up his control over the earth. The earth is being taken back by force, by God's power.
Ephesians 1:13-14 - Believers are sealed with the Holy Spirit, and the world can be sealed with evil spirits. The Holy Spirit is the down-payment of our inheritance. The only thing left to be redeemed is our bodies. We will have a new spiritual body at the Rapture.
"In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory." (Ephesians 1:13-14 NKJV)
Romans 8:23 - We are still waiting for the redemption of our bodies. That is why we can still have healing, because on this earth, we are still in our mortal bodies.
"Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body." (Romans 8:23 NKJV)
As a believer, you have the right to receive healing! Sometimes when we pray for healing, the devil refuses to budge even when he has no right to remain. Don't negotiate with the devil. Evict the devil and the demons from their squatters. Cast them out in Jesus's name because you have been redeemed!
