18 April 2017 - Win Over Fear and Pride - Pastor Joseph Prince Sermon Notes Online - New Creation Church Sermon Notes Online
All over the world, God is moving. God is a good God. He cares for and loves people.
God wants you to share what you have with many others.
It's for the kingdom of God.
Don't become a Dead Sea - there is an inlet but there is no outlet - only receiving and not giving.
Be like the thriving Sea of Galilee - give and share with others the finances, gifts and blessings that we have received from God.
Have Christ's interest in your heart - sow into His kingdom.
There is no time and space with the anointing.
Jesus compressed time in one instant and turned water into the best wine at the wedding in Cana - Jesus is the Lord of Time.
Jesus healed the nobleman's son from a distance also in Cana - Jesus is the Lord of Space.
Even if it's a sermon that Pastor Prince preached 5 years ago, it's still for you today.
Miracles are not by our might or power. It's by the Holy Spirit.
II Thessalonians 1:6-10 - It would be righteous for God to trouble those who trouble you. That's why we should pray for those who trouble us.
Grace is not something cheap. The fire of God fell on the Victim at the cross, because Jesus loves us.
If someone makes a mockery of that, the Day is coming when Jesus comes back for Israel in flaming fire, taking vengeance on such people.
This is not for believers, this is talking about the Second Coming of Christ.
This Christ-rejecting world will be punished with everlasting destruction.
Grace is the gospel. It's called the gospel of grace and peace.
In this Age of Grace, judgments that we see happening to people happens when they try to hinder the gospel of grace.
If you reject grace, there's no other provision for you.
Some grace preachers teach that there is no hell. They are universalists. They say that hell is temporary and that it is restorative.
No, the only place for holy fire to burn anything bad off is here on earth.
Jesus is coming back as Judge to judge the guilty world.
"Everlasting" is "aionios" in Greek which means eternal. When someone is sentenced to the lake of fire, it is for eternity.
It is not possible for a believer to renounce Jesus and his/her salvation.
A sinner cannot renounce the devil or his/her sinfulness even if he/she wanted to.
Sinners sin because they are sinners.
God loves you, but God is also holy and he cannot allow sin to enter His presence.
We are sinners because of Adam's sin. But by one Man's obedience (Jesus), we are made righteous.
What the Last Adam (Jesus) did is more powerful than what the First Adam did.
Nothing is so secure as to know that Jesus' word is perfect and His word is sure.
“since it is a righteous thing with God to repay with tribulation those who trouble you, and to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, when He comes, in that Day, to be glorified in His saints and to be admired among all those who believe, because our testimony among you was believed.” (II Thessalonians 1:6-10 NKJV)
The things which are seen are temporary. The things which are not seen are eternal (aionios).
Judas was a partner with the Holy Spirit but he did not have the Holy Spirit.
Pastor Prince believes that Elijah will be one of the two witnesses that will come back to preach to the world during the Great Tribulation.
Elijah went up to heaven in a blaze of glory and did not die like how most people do.
Elijah is not dead, he is somewhere in heaven.
I Kings 19:11-18 - Grace is the still-small voice. People despise grace. Grace is different from mercy. You cannot think that they are the same thing.
When God wants to break our hearts, He uses kindness.
When God is hard, people's rebellion gets stronger.
What happened in the cave is not to remain in the cave. It's for us to learn.
Rejection can produce lust. If you experience rejection when you are young, you can have a problem with lust in the future.
The key to answered prayer is to give God all the glory.
Before asking God to send fire down from heaven on Mount Carmel, Elijah prayed for the people to know that God is the God of Israel.
Although you are a new Creation in Christ, you cannot depend on your own efforts.
If God has blessed you, give God all the glory.
One thing you shouldn't do during prayer is to criticize other believers.
Elijah recited Israel's sins before God.
It is not your place to recite other people's sins before God.
The moment you think your ministry is so important and irreplaceable and stop seeing it as a privilege, God will anoint someone else in your place.
“Then He said, “Go out, and stand on the mountain before the LORD.” And behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice. So it was, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood in the entrance of the cave. Suddenly a voice came to him, and said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” And he said, “I have been very zealous for the LORD God of hosts; because the children of Israel have forsaken Your covenant, torn down Your altars, and killed Your prophets with the sword. I alone am left; and they seek to take my life.” Then the LORD said to him: “Go, return on your way to the Wilderness of Damascus; and when you arrive, anoint Hazael as king over Syria. Also you shall anoint Jehu the son of Nimshi as king over Israel. And Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abel Meholah you shall anoint as prophet in your place. It shall be that whoever escapes the sword of Hazael, Jehu will kill; and whoever escapes the sword of Jehu, Elisha will kill. Yet I have reserved seven thousand in Israel, all whose knees have not bowed to Baal, and every mouth that has not kissed him.”” (I Kings 19:11-18 NKJV)
Numbers 20:7-12 - Since when did Moses and Aaron bring water and since when did God tell Moses to call the children of Israel "rebels"?
There is such a thing as the Father's chastisement but it is not judgment.
When a brother or sister in Christ is being chastised, it is not your place to accuse him/her more to God.
Moses's sin was striking the rock twice which represents crucifying Jesus twice. Jesus is the rock.
The second time, God said speak to the rock. The rock is "cela" which means a high cliff.
It represents Jesus after He ascended and is now High Priest. He cannot be crucified again.
“Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, “Take the rod; you and your brother Aaron gather the congregation together. Speak to the rock before their eyes, and it will yield its water; thus you shall bring water for them out of the rock, and give drink to the congregation and their animals.” So Moses took the rod from before the LORD as He commanded him. And Moses and Aaron gathered the assembly together before the rock; and he said to them, “Hear now, you rebels! Must we bring water for you out of this rock?” Then Moses lifted his hand and struck the rock twice with his rod; and water came out abundantly, and the congregation and their animals drank. Then the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, “Because you did not believe Me, to hallow Me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them.”” (Numbers 20:7-12 NKJV)
I Kings 19:19 - Elijah learned a lesson in the cave. He learned that we are all not indispensable.
He learned that the moment he started talking about his own importance, God raised up his successor.
Elijah is a man of God - he really humbled himself and went to anoint Elisha his successor.
One of the lessons that God is trying to bring us all to is humility.
“So he departed from there, and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen before him, and he was with the twelfth. Then Elijah passed by him and threw his mantle on him.” (I Kings 19:19 NKJV)
Job 42:5-6 - Many of you listen to sermons - make sure you have your own revelation. Make what Pastor Prince teaches your own.
When people somewhere are praising you, go to your room, fall on your knees and give God all the glory.
Remember that we are nothing and we are dust and flesh. Without God we cannot.
Job's eyes were on what he did and why he deserved to be blessed. He believed that God has been blessing Him because of his deeds.
God was showing Job that people only deserve blessings by the righteousness through the sacrifice.
No man is righteous by himself. If there is a righteous man, it is by the blood of Jesus.
““I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, But now my eye sees You. Therefore I abhor myself, And repent in dust and ashes.”” (Job 42:5-6 NKJV)
Grace is not something cheap. The fire of God fell on the Victim at the cross, because Jesus loves us. If someone makes a mockery of that, the Day is coming when Jesus comes back for Israel in flaming fire, taking vengeance on such people. This is not for believers, this is talking about the Second Coming of Christ. This Christ-rejecting world will be punished with everlasting destruction.
II Kings 1:6-14 - Elijah had no trace of fear after he anointed Elisha to take his place.
Elijah had humbled himself before God.
Elijah anointed another man, Jehu, who would be the one to kill the evil woman Jezebel.
All kings and military might is nothing before a man who has God with him.
Elijah represents the judicial part of God. He fights for God's righteousness.
“So they said to him, “A man came up to meet us, and said to us, ‘Go, return to the king who sent you, and say to him, “Thus says the LORD: ‘ Is it because there is no God in Israel that you are sending to inquire of Baal-Zebub, the god of Ekron? Therefore you shall not come down from the bed to which you have gone up, but you shall surely die.’ ” ’ ” Then he said to them, “What kind of man was it who came up to meet you and told you these words?” So they answered him, “A hairy man wearing a leather belt around his waist.” And he said, “It is Elijah the Tishbite.” Then the king sent to him a captain of fifty with his fifty men. So he went up to him; and there he was, sitting on the top of a hill. And he spoke to him: “Man of God, the king has said, ‘Come down!’ ” So Elijah answered and said to the captain of fifty, “If I am a man of God, then let fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty men.” And fire came down from heaven and consumed him and his fifty. Then he sent to him another captain of fifty with his fifty men. And he answered and said to him: “Man of God, thus has the king said, ‘Come down quickly!’ ” So Elijah answered and said to them, “If I am a man of God, let fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty men.” And the fire of God came down from heaven and consumed him and his fifty. Again, he sent a third captain of fifty with his fifty men. And the third captain of fifty went up, and came and fell on his knees before Elijah, and pleaded with him, and said to him: “Man of God, please let my life and the life of these fifty servants of yours be precious in your sight. Look, fire has come down from heaven and burned up the first two captains of fifties with their fifties. But let my life now be precious in your sight.”” (II Kings 1:6-14 NKJV)
Elisha's ministry is more grace. Even the "sha" in his name is the name of "Jesus" (Yeshua).
Elijah represents John the Baptist.
When Archangel Gabriel spoke to Zacharias about the incoming birth of John the Bapist, he said that John would go before Jesus in the spirit and power of Elijah.
John also wore a leather belt around his waist like Elijah did.
II Kings 2:19-22 - Elijah's last public act was to call fire down from heaven - judgment.
Elisha's first miracle was to be called by God to the city of Jericho, a cursed city, to purify its poisoned and bitter waters.
He healed the city and reversed the curse - that's grace.
“Then the men of the city said to Elisha, “Please notice, the situation of this city is pleasant, as my lord sees; but the water is bad, and the ground barren.” And he said, “Bring me a new bowl, and put salt in it.” So they brought it to him. Then he went out to the source of the water, and cast in the salt there, and said, “Thus says the LORD: ‘I have healed this water; from it there shall be no more death or barrenness.’ ” So the water remains healed to this day, according to the word of Elisha which he spoke.” (II Kings 2:19-22 NKJV)
II Kings 1:15-16 - Elijah was escorted by enemy soldiers right into the throne room of the palace of his enemy King Ahaziah.
In the very city that he fled from, now Elijah with no trace of fear, marched into the palace, with Jezebel standing right there (the woman Elijah fled from).
“And the angel of the LORD said to Elijah, “Go down with him; do not be afraid of him.” So he arose and went down with him to the king. Then he said to him, “Thus says the LORD: ‘Because you have sent messengers to inquire of Baal-Zebub, the god of Ekron, is it because there is no God in Israel to inquire of His word? Therefore you shall not come down from the bed to which you have gone up, but you shall surely die.’ ”” (II Kings 1:15-16 NKJV)
You're not indispensable - whatever you have is from God, and it is a privilege to serve Him.
If you don't want to serve Him, He can raise someone else up to serve Him.
God will not forget even a cup of water that you offer in His name.
But the moment you start thinking you're something, He will show you that you're not needed. That will humble you.
When you're humble there's no need to impress and you cannot be hurt by what people say about you because you know you're actually worse than that.
Our Heavenly Father loves us so much that He disciplines us when we do something wrong.
He won't allow us to continue in our mistakes, but He definitely doesn't discipline us with sickness or accidents.
Stop and feel loved when you are being disciplined by God.
He doesn't neglect or forget about you just because He is running the universe.
Learn to thank God. Without His grace, we won't even have food to eat.
The more accomplished someone is, the more they have to watch themselves from feeling entitled, because all the blessings they have can disappear just like that.
The best response is to be like the third captain of fifty, and pray for God to be merciful. God is still merciful.

“How much better it is to get wisdom than gold! And to get understanding is to be chosen above silver.” (PROVERBS 16:16 AMP)
Testimonial about Milton's writing:
"Milton Goh my brother, your insight on Grace has set me free from 20 yrs of addiction.
I was a 7 time felon but by the GRACE of God I am now an ordained minister.
Here is some of my story: I was saved in Dec 2016 and started evangelizing in July of 2017 as soon as I was released.
My ministry has led over 800 to Jesus. I go to jails, rehabs, homeless shelters plus numerous churches!
Your notes and sermons allowed me to find rest in Jesus. I was getting tired trying to perform what I thought God needed from me.
You have made me realize it's 100% the CROSS and now I go constantly for Jesus but never get tired.
Thanks for your wisdom and love for Jesus. May God bless you and your family!"

"Dear Milton Goh, I truly thank our Abba, Father for the revelations in this book. It is so amazing how I begin to discover important verses in the Bible that I have never read. That instead of following riches, with sleepless nights, and actually shortening our lives, we are just to 'Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ', and 'Love one another'. How beautiful to find out that actually in the Bible there is both 'Earthly or Worldly Investment Wisdom' and 'Eternal Investment Wisdom' according to the revelations here from Ecclesiastes 5:14-17 WEB)!; “It seems like Solomon was not only wise at earning material riches but also at earning eternal riches.” All the glory to our Lord Jesus Christ!

Testimonial for this book:
"Hi Milton, just finished reading your book. Truly awe-inspiring! The Holy Spirit is all over this. I say this because I only ever listen to teachings from a few ministers, but I kept being drawn to this teaching. After many distractions, I eventually got around to actually watching your video. I’m so glad I did. It created a new hunger in me to dig deeper in the Word, but this time reading it through a different lens. Your book has definitely helped me understand this topic a lot better. Thank you for sharing this revelation with us Milton Goh. May many more be blessed by your work as I have been. God Bless you abundantly!"

- Mukyala Moreen, Uganda
"Hi Mr. Milton Goh, first of all I would like to say “Praise God and thank you so much Mr. Milton. You are such an answered prayer for me. I was really blessed by your blog. It opened my mind to the reality that there is still more than I can do for my Savior. Your blog melted my heart so much for God and pushed me to desire Jesus more. Your powerful notes anointed by the Lord through the Holy Spirit that you have shared will greatly help me for the expansion and growth of my ministry as well as my relationship with my God. I pray that God will continue to use you to inspire, motivate and uplift dying souls. I pray and I believe some day in the future I will be given a chance to encounter a (real encounter) with a servant of Jesus like you. Be richly blessed by God Mr. Milton and your family as well."

Beautiful, Healthy and Strong Like Jesus
Physical beauty, youth, health and fitness. So many of us desire these blessings that Jesus has and try all sorts of ways to attain them: plastic surgery, nutritional supplements, skincare products, exercise, dieting and more. I know one thing though - God’s word is much more powerful and effective - when the revelations in this book drop into your heart, you can’t help but become a more beautiful, younger, healthier and stronger version of you - it’s a transformation that everyone can see!
Instead of spending thousands of dollars to buy beauty, health and strength, why not receive them supernaturally as a gift since Jesus' death on the cross has paid the price for you to have them!
Take a peek at the Chapter Titles:
Chapter 1: God Finds this Attractive
Chapter 2: Will God bless me with Physical Beauty?
Chapter 3: Jesus’ Body: A Masterpiece Knitted with Love
Chapter 4: Is Suffering Death, Poverty and Sickness a Godly Way of Living?
Chapter 5: Be Blessed as you Rest
Chapter 6: Your Physical Body can be Renewed
Chapter 7: The Best Surgeon Of All
Chapter 8: Eat from the Tree of Life to be Healthy
Chapter 9: Tame your Tongue to Remain in Health
Chapter 10: Transformed through Mountaintop Fellowship with Abba Father
Chapter 11: Moses’ Secret to Youth, Health and Strength at 120 Years Old
Chapter 12: God’s Purpose in Keeping you Young
There are two occasions of fires falling in Elijah's history.
On Mount Carmel, the fire fell on the victim instead of on the guilty people.
The fire from a Holy God fell on the sacrifice and the people were shielded from judgment.
Not one Israelite was touched by the fire because it fell on the sacrifice.
That foreshadows our Lord Jesus Christ who died on the cross for our sins. He was the Victim and the Sacrifice.
The fires of judgment that were meant for you and I fell on Him instead.
If we believe that Jesus has consumed all judgment, we will know that not one trace of judgment will fall on us because Jesus took it all.
But what happened on Mount Carmel was soon forgotten.
For centuries, the gospel was preached throughout the world.
How has man responded? This Christ-rejecting world has spurned the gospel and made fun of it in their night shows. God will not allow that.
We were all sinners. Jesus came because He loved us. He didn't have to die.
We won't cry tears if an ant just died. Sometimes we even assist in killing them.
But God humbled Himself and became a Man because we were all doomed.
If God had sent us all to hell, He would be righteous. Some people may protest that, but God knows the whole truth. God will never be unjust.
Many years have passed since what happened at Mount Carmel.
The people did not bring the sacrifice, and the soldiers that came to arrest Elijah had no regard for the sacrifice.
God is telling us that if the world will not learn judgment from the fire that fell on His Son so that the good news can be preached (about the forgiveness of sins through Jesus, and that God is a God of grace),
then the world will have to learn the fires of judgment falling on themselves, and that our God is a Consuming Fire.
Many years have passed, and the guilty people have learnt nothing, so the fires fell on them.
II Kings 2:1 - King Ahaziah died, and Elijah was about to go up to heaven in a blaze of glory.
Many years after this event, the One greater than Elijah walked on earth, and in the same city of Samaria, the time came for Him to be received up.
“And it came to pass, when the LORD was about to take up Elijah into heaven by a whirlwind, that Elijah went with Elisha from Gilgal.”(II Kings 2:1 NKJV)
Luke 9:51-56 - Jesus was in the same place as where Jezebel, Ahab and all these things happened many years ago at this time.
The people there did not receive Jesus and rejected the Sacrifice.
James and John (the Apostle of Love) asked Jesus whether they should call for fire to come down to consume the people.
Jesus didn't rebuke the Samaritans for rejecting Him, but He rebuked His disciples.
From the time Jesus died on the cross and rose up from the dead bodily and went back to heaven, it is the greatest and most wonderful time in the earth's history -
The gospel of grace is being preached and God is dispensing grace.
The disciples cannot understand because they can figure out judgment and deliver it on earth, but they cannot understand grace because they had no concept of grace being dispensed from heaven. The Apostle Paul would later explain this to them.
Most people right now still believe that fire can fall from heaven.
The fire already fell at the cross. We are now in the Age of Grace where we don't get what we deserve.
We get all the good things that Jesus deserved.
This Church Age is the most wonderful period in the history of the world besides the Millennium.
The disciples were wrong to ask for fire to fall upon the Samaritans because they were transposing themselves into a future time to the time after Jesus comes back.
They were getting ahead of themselves.
The Lord Jesus will come back in flaming fire.
There are consequences to bad behavior but God is not judging.
Don't transpose this Age of Grace into the future.
There is fire coming but we are not yet in that Age.
No matter how evil or bad we get, the goodness of God will lead us to repentance.
God is raising ministries that have a still-small voice -
The gentle tongue breaks the bone. Don't underestimate how iniquity is purged - it is by "hesed ve emet" (grace and truth).
“Now it came to pass, when the time had come for Him to be received up, that He steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem, and sent messengers before His face. And as they went, they entered a village of the Samaritans, to prepare for Him. But they did not receive Him, because His face was set for the journey to Jerusalem. And when His disciples James and John saw this, they said, “Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, just as Elijah did?” But He turned and rebuked them, and said, “You do not know what manner of spirit you are of. For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men’s lives but to save them. ” And they went to another village.” (Luke 9:51-56 NKJV)
The greatest period of this world commenced when the gospel of grace was first understood.
Wherever the gospel has gone, civilization has come into this world -
Women are honored and respected, education becomes available to everyone, modernization comes in, wealth of nations are created -
It's all built on the Judeo-Christian values, but most of all, the gospel is preached.
We are still in that Age.
The Rapture will happen first before Jesus comes back to earth.
II Kings 2:23-24 - "Youths" should be translated as "Young gangsters".
They were making fun of Elisha who was bald, asking him to go up to heaven like Elijah who went up in the blaze of glory.
It represents the world we live in that makes fun of the Rapture. There are even Christians who make fun of the Rapture.
God won't have that - Anything that rejects grace - The Rapture is a provision of grace. If they make fun of it, there will be judgment upon them.
As believers who are saved, we won't have judgment.
Instead, God our Father lavishes good things upon us and blesses us - there is no limit to His goodness for us.
But how terrible it is to be out there rejecting and making a mockery of His grace, making fun of the Rapture.
“Then he went up from there to Bethel; and as he was going up the road, some youths came from the city and mocked him, and said to him, “Go up, you baldhead! Go up, you baldhead!” So he turned around and looked at them, and pronounced a curse on them in the name of the LORD. And two female bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the youths.” (II Kings 2:23-24 NKJV)
The only way to get rid of the self-importance and pride in our hearts is to realize that all that we have, even the breath that we breathe, is from God.

* 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 and Shanice Ng for supporting this blog as our Superabundant Grace tier patrons!
