You don't have to wait for someone to pray for you.
As the word goes forth during church service, always be ready to receive your healing! There is a special corporate anointing!
Luke 21:7-11 - "Nation will rise again nation" is ethnos against ethnos. "Ethnos" is the Greek word for "ethnic group".
Nowadays there are many conflicts between ethnic groups.
Great earthquakes are earthquakes that measure 6.0 or higher on the Richter scale. Nowadays there are such earthquakes every year.
“So they asked Him, saying, “Teacher, but when will these things be? And what sign will there be when these things are about to take place?” And He said: “Take heed that you not be deceived. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am He, ’ and, ‘The time has drawn near.’ Therefore do not go after them. But when you hear of wars and commotions, do not be terrified; for these things must come to pass first, but the end will not come immediately.” Then He said to them, “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven.” (Luke 21:7-11 NKJV)
Mark 13:1-2 - In AD 70, General Titus led the Roman Army to raze Jerusalem to the ground.
General Titus commanded his soldiers not to destroy the Temple, but as the soldiers fought, some of the torches of fire fell into the temple and the gold in between the cracks of the stones of the temple melted and started flowing down.
This caused the soldiers to ignore General Titus' command and throw down the stones of the temple to get the gold.
The son of the emperor of Rome said don't destroy the temple, whereas the Son of God (Jesus) said not one stone will be left on another.
Jesus' word always comes to pass. You can be sure that God's prophecies will come to pass.
"And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples said unto him, Teacher, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here! And Jesus answering said unto him, See these great buildings? there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down." (Mark 13:1-2, NKJV)
In 1948, Israel came back as a nation after the "Six Day War". God was repeating history -
The walls of Jericho collapsed after the children of Israel marched around them for six days.
Titus 2:11-13 - Grace is a person. Grace has "appeared" which is "epiphano" and it means "becomes visible".
The correct posture of a believer: we don't look forward to death. We look forward to the glorious appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ!
“For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ,” (Titus 2:11-13 NKJV)
When you're believing the truth, the Spirit of Truth (the Holy Spirit) can attest to it.
But when you're believing a lie, the Holy Spirit cannot attest to that, and it will manifest in the form of problems in your life.
The words "Triune God" and "Trinity" are not found in the Bible.
But they are truths and these are terms to help to explain the Scriptures.
The word "Rapture" is not found in the Bible but it refers to the snatching away of believers to escape this world to be with Jesus.
The Rapture is different from the Second Coming of Christ.
In the Second Coming, Jesus will be coming back to judge this earth.
As believers we won't be judged as we have passed from judgment into life.
The Rapture is called a "mystery" because it was once hidden by God but now revealed by Him to His people.
We shall not all sleep but we shall all be changed in a twinkling of an eye. It will happen so fast that no one will see it happen.
Science is behind the Bible. Archaeology is playing catch up with the Bible. It depends on how fast they uncover the truth.
Once upon a time Archaeologists didn't believe that the Hittites existed. Now they have found the proof of the Hittites civilization and that it may be even greater than ancient Egypt was.
Archaeologists also found the huge bones of Philistines.
They also found remains of a snake with legs (In the Garden of Eden, the serpent was cursed to crawl on its belly as a punishment for deceiving Adam and Eve into eating from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.)
God so loved the world that He sent His Son Jesus to bear our judgement, and all our sins have been punished in Jesus' body at the cross.
The Law of Double Jeopardy: the same offence cannot be punished twice.
Therefore God is righteous in not punishing believers because Jesus has already paid the price for our sins.
God uses judicial terms: we are the righteousness of God in Christ! That's the gospel in a nutshell.
The Rapture can happen at anytime. The Rapture is the Blessed Hope, and that hope purifies us.
There are people who say that the Rapture is a theory, a concoction that people came out with in the 1800's.
Matthew Henry, one of the famous commentators of the Bible was one of the first to use the term "Rapture", and that was in the 1600's.
III John 1:2 - There is no such thing as the 'health and wealth gospel'. There is only the gospel of grace and peace.
But the gospel RESULTS in health, wealth and peace!
Wherever the gospel goes, society has improved - women are honored and prosperity reigns.
This is God's will for all believers: that we prosper in ALL things!
“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” (III John 1:2 NKJV)
Pastor Prince is against materialism and covetousness, and against pastors who have big congregations and live ludicrous, outlandish lifestyles.
Pastors should sacrifice for the flock and it should not be the flock sacrificing for the pastors.
There is no such thing as "a window of opportunity has now opened in this season for financial blessings".
Some pastors say that to get their congregation to give them money.
The windows of heaven have been flung open permanently ever since Jesus died for us at the cross.
God's favor and blessings are upon all believers at all times.
The word "Rapture" is not found in the Bible but it refers to the snatching away of believers to escape this world to be with Jesus. The Rapture is different from the Second Coming of Christ. In the Second Coming, Jesus will be coming back to judge this earth. As believers we won't be judged as we have passed from judgment into life.
Luke 6:38 - "Pressed down" so that more space can be made available to contain the blessings!
It's like when you are raking leaves - you must press the leaves down into the container to fit more leaves.
You mean when we give we will get blessed? YES! That's what this verse says!
“Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”” (Luke 6:38 NKJV)
Jesus did not say tell everyone after the loaves and fishes were multiplied.
When it comes to prosperity, keep quiet. Such testimonies can produce jealousy and comparison. It's empty.
When it comes to deliverance from addictions, tell the whole world!
Isaiah 53:4-5 - Some people believe that these verses are talking about spiritual healing and not physical healing.
The truth is that it is literal and physical healing!
“Surely He has borne our griefs And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:4-5 NKJV)
Matthew 8:16-17 - Jesus healed all who had physical sicknesses and cast out demons.
It's literal physical healing and not spiritualized.
There is a reference to Isaiah 53:4 proving that Isaiah 53:4 is talking about physical healing.
“When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: “He Himself took our infirmities And bore our sicknesses.”” (Matthew 8:16-17 NKJV)
Have a prosperous and big attitude. Believe that your supply will increase. Don't have a poor spirit or scarcity mentality.
When you tear a parking coupon and no one is looking, don't lie. There is a God who loves you watching. There are angels watching you. And YOU are watching you. Have self-respect.
A person with dignity and self-respect has kavod (a weightiness and glory). People notice when such a person walks into the room.
Joshua 23:14 - God's words will never fail. All of them will come to pass.
““Behold, this day I am going the way of all the earth. And you know in all your hearts and in all your souls that not one thing has failed of all the good things which the LORD your God spoke concerning you. All have come to pass for you; not one word of them has failed.” (Joshua 23:14 NKJV)
Ephesians 1:3 - Everything you can touch and see is less real than the spiritual, because it is decaying. It is not permanent.
God is a Spirit Being that brought forth and manifested the physical.
"Spiritual" here is the Greek word "pneumatikos" which means "has its origin in God".
Something can originate in God or in the efforts of the flesh.
Spiritual blessings produces physical evidence of blessings! Examples: Freedom from stress, and happiness.
We don't cheat and lie on our taxes. We give to Caesar what is Caesar's.
If you have been cheated of money, you don't have to go down to the level of the cheater.
God always out-gives to you what you have lost. God will always bless you with more!
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,” (Ephesians 1:3 NKJV)
Deuteronomy 8:17-18 - God gives us the "power" which is the Hebrew word "koach". This power is invisible.
The word "get" is the Hebrew word "asah" which means "to create". God has given us the power to create wealth.
Many of the richest people on earth are Jews. Why? They have a covenant with God. They have the power to create wealth.
Do we have that? Yes! Believers have an even better covenant than the unsaved Jews!
Get in line with God's word and will, and God will prosper you!
“then you say in your heart, ‘My power and the might of my hand have gained me this wealth.’ “And you shall remember the LORD your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.” (Deuteronomy 8:17-18 NKJV)
II Corinthians 1:20 - When you say yes and amen, it is through you, and it gives glory to God.
It must be a definitive and emphatic YES and AMEN. Be affirmative.
Jesus was affirmative when He said "let it be done to you as you have believed" and "according to your faith let it be done to you".
“For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.” (II Corinthians 1:20 NKJV)
II Corinthians 1:17-20 - Planning according to the flesh means to be unsure and swaying between yes and no.
“Therefore, when I was planning this, did I do it lightly? Or the things I plan, do I plan according to the flesh, that with me there should be Yes, Yes, and No, No? But as God is faithful, our word to you was not Yes and No. For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us—by me, Silvanus, and Timothy—was not Yes and No, but in Him was Yes. For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.” (II Corinthians 1:17-20 NKJV)
Matthew 4:5-6 - Before this, the heavens opened to Jesus by the River Jordan and God told Him that He is God's Beloved Son in whom He is well-pleased.
The devil left out the word "beloved" when tempting Jesus.
"If you are the Son of God.." is the common mantra in his temptations to Jesus.
The devil knows that if people are reminded that they are loved by God, the temptations won't succeed on them.
Always remind your children that they are loved.
The only place when the devil tries to quote the Bible is here where he tried to quote Psalms 91.
Some people falsely believe that the devil reads and knows the Scriptures. The devil does not read the Bible, if not he will become a heavenly devil. The Bible has that effect of producing holiness.
The devil knows Psalms 91 because believers quote it a lot against him!
Jesus does not sin because He won't sin. Jesus is like solid pure gold.
God allowed the devil to tempt (test) Jesus and in the end, Jesus is verified to be sinless, like solid pure gold with no impurities!
Jesus cannot be destroyed. He dismissed His spirit at the cross, like a king commanding His subject.
Jesus' life cannot be taken from Him without His permission.
Only Jesus can lay down His own life.
Death can only fasten upon a person who has sin in him. Jesus is sinless, so death has no dominion over Him.
“Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down. For it is written: ‘He shall give His angels charge over you,’ and, ‘In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.’ ”” (Matthew 4:5-6 NKJV)
II Peter 1:2-3 - How can we experience the tangible blessings of God in our life - more grace, more favor, more peace, more Shalom? How is it multiplied?
The more we see Jesus and know Jesus, the more we will experience the blessings in our lives!
As you listen to the word of God and receive more revelations of Jesus, you will walk out will more healthier, more prosperous etc!
“Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue,” (II Peter 1:2-3 NKJV)
It's not cool to say the "F-word". You lost control. A demon has you from the outside, not from within.
If someone offends you, just shine and walk away.
That's something that they don't have - Self-control and holiness.
If your colleagues are talking bad and gossiping about your boss, don't join in.
Don't be afraid to say something good about your boss either.
Don't allow their bad behavior to pull your standard of glory and virtue down.
You have no business talking bad about your boss if you are working under him/her. If you are unhappy, quit your job.
Be a gentleman.
Be someone called to glory and virtue.
Be someone charming but not flirtatious.
Be someone that girls want to marry but you choose only one.
Be someone that people admire, yet you marry only one.
Psalms 91:11-12 - The devil left these words out when he quoted Psalms 91 while tempting Jesus: "to keep you in all your ways".
He wants you to believe that God has blessed you in some areas, but not in all areas.
No, God has blessed you in ALL areas: all your journeys in life.
In all areas of your life, there are angels there, keeping you and bearing you up!
"Lest you dash your foot against a stone" is talking about protection during your daily walk in life - it is not talking about you jumping off a building and expecting God to save you.
“For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.” (Psalms 91:11-12 NKJV)
Before this, the heavens opened to Jesus by the River Jordan and God told Him that He is God's Beloved Son in whom He is well-pleased. The devil left out the word "beloved" when tempting Jesus. "If you are the Son of God.." is the common mantra in his temptations to Jesus. The devil knows that if people are reminded that they are loved by God, the temptations won't succeed on them.
