25 May 2014 - Pastor Joseph Prince Sermon Notes - New Creation Church Sermon Notes - Christianity is all about what Jesus has done, not what we have to do.
If there is no shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness of sins. That is why Jesus had to come as a human, to offer His blood as a sacrifice for us.
Romans 5:17 - Through Adam's sin, Death came into our world.
Righteousness is not a reward. We can't earn it. It is a gift that is freely given. If we did not earn our gift of righteousness by our works, similarly, we can't lose this gift by our works.
"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 highest of God's creation is Man. God did not make Man to grow old, sick and die. God counts Death as an enemy.
Man is given free-choice, but he is not free to choose the consequences of his choices.
Jesus did not come to make bad people good. He came to make dead people live!
When we fail, come back to God and see Him as your daddy who loves us. Not a stern judge ready to punish us. Be conscious of God's love for us, and know that he hears us.
For those who are non-believers, just come as you are, and Jesus will make you clean and give you the robes of righteousness which last forever.
We have to come to the end of ourselves before we can be saved.
For the Holy Spirit to bear witness, we must confess God's Truth.
1 John 2:1-2 - We have a comforter who paid the price for our sins.
"My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate (parakletos - Comforter) with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world." (I John 2:1, 2 NKJV)
Romans 6:16 - Satan had access to Heaven in the past because by obeying Satan's suggestions, Adam sinned against God by partaking of the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, and he and mankind were made into Satan's lawful slaves.
"Do you not know that when you present yourselves to someone as slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or of obedience resulting in righteousness?" (Romans 6:16, NKJV)
Satan does not have access to Heaven today. Satan was cast out from Heaven permanently after Jesus rose from the dead.
Colossians 2:9-10 - The moment we are saved we are immediately complete in Christ.
"For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power." (Colossians 2:9, 10 NKJV)
Jesus is The Lord of Time (the miracle of turning water to wine), Space (healing from long distance away in Capernaum), Force (healing of the blind man at the pool of Bethesda - "get up and walk"), and Matter (feeding the multitudes).
We don't pray for victory, we pray from victory. We don't hold onto Jesus, Jesus holds onto us.
If we feel that we need more faith, it's not about our own faith, it's about Jesus's perfect faith.
True ministry is allowing Jesus to take over, and we resting in Him.
The Christian life starts with the finished work. The devil is already defeated. We have peace with God, knowing that it is finished.
The correct sequence - many people in the world have it in reverse: "It is finished" (John 19:30)"Peace be with you" (John 20:19) "Do you love me?" (John 21:15) "You follow me." (John 21:22)
Daniel 6:19-24 - Jesus is our Daniel. He was punished for all our sins, but He emerged and rose from the dead.
"Then the king arose very early in the morning and went in haste to the den of lions. And when he came to the den, he cried out with a lamenting voice to Daniel. The king spoke, saying to Daniel, “Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to deliver you from the lions?” Then Daniel said to the king, “O king, live forever! My God sent His angel and shut the lions’ mouths, so that they have not hurt me, because I was found innocent before Him; and also, O king, I have done no wrong before you.” Now the king was exceedingly glad for him, and commanded that they should take Daniel up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no injury whatever was found on him, because he believed in his God. And the king gave the command, and they brought those men who had accused Daniel, and they cast them into the den of lions—them, their children, and their wives; and the lions overpowered them, and broke all their bones in pieces before they ever came to the bottom of the den." (Daniel 6:19-24 NKJV)
God loves us, but hates sin. God is holy to see us as righteous even when we fail as believers, because our sins were already punished on Jesus's body. He would be unjust to punish the same sin, twice. Say: "Devil I did wrong, but it is already paid!"
Religion is Man trying to reach God. However, receiving Jesus is reality. God is reaching out to us to save us.

* Please Take Note: These sermon notes are not official New Creation Church (NCC) or Pastor Joseph Prince sermon notes. These sermon notes are not affiliated with NCC or Pastor Prince.
I highly recommend purchasing Pastor Prince's sermons on his mobile app "Joseph Prince" on Apple App Store or Google Play Store even after you read these notes as I may have missed out something he shared and the overall experience is definitely different when you listen to him preaching directly!
Use these notes as a revision guide instead of solely depending on them!
These sermon notes are independently-compiled by me, and I'm just a loyal and regular attendee of the the church's Sunday services, and I feel led to take detailed personal sermon notes of Pastor Prince's anointed messages to share them with the world, which desperately needs the true word of God and the original gospel of grace.
I feel blessed to be able to attend Pastor Joseph Prince's services in person, and would like to help everyone who isn't able to attend in person, to get hold of the messages as soon as it is preached!
Many blessings and thanks to Terence Koh for supporting this blog as a Superabundant Grace tier patron!

Hi Jeffery, firstly, thanks for reading these Pastor Joseph Prince Sermon Notes! The moment you believe and receive Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, all your sins -past, present and future, are completely forgiven. You don't have to ask for forgiveness again that would be considered unbelief in the perfect work that Jesus has done for you. Now take note that I do not mean that we should have an unrepentant atttitude. Sometimes we still slip up and fall into sin. When that happens, we should repent (repent means change your mind) and renounce that sin, and declare that "I thank you Heavenly Father, that I am still the Righteouness of God in Christ Jesus!". There is no sin too terrible that can't be forgiven. The depths of our God's love and mercy are greater! Our righteousness can't be lost. It is an eternal standing. Praise Jesus! :)
