Overflowing Blessings

Deuteronomy 6:10-13
World English Bible (WEB)

10 It shall be, when Yahweh your God brings you into the land which he swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give you, great and goodly cities, which you didn’t build, 11 and houses full of all good things, which you didn’t fill, and cisterns dug out, which you didn’t dig, vineyards and olive trees, which you didn’t plant, and you shall eat and be full; 12 then beware lest you forget Yahweh, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.13 You shall fear Yahweh your God; and you shall serve him, and shall swear by his name.

Miracle of Luxury

  • First miracle of Jesus :Turning water in to wine
  • That shows the heart of Jesus
  • Our blessings are not based on our needs
  • Our blessings are based on our wants

Psalm 23:1
King James Version (KJV)

23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

Peter’s want

  • No one got healed at this situation
  • No one got delivered from demons
  • But it was a personal want of Peter
  • Personal desire on Peter’s part

Matthew 14:28-29
World English Bible (WEB)

28 Peter answered him and said, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the waters.”
29 He said, “Come!”
Peter stepped down from the boat, and walked on the waters to come to Jesus.

  • If you have desire to walk in the water, you can walk
  • Peter had desire to walk in the water and he walked.

Take more

  • Believe for no pimple
  • Take more
  • Oh you are little faith means Oh you of little taking
    • Take more from Jesus
  • God will drop on purpose
    • Like Boaz did to Ruth
  • God doesn’t meets your needs according to your needs; He meets your needs according to HIS RICHES.

His Love

  • He loves for you to take
  • He never complained of you taking more
  • He complained only when you take less ( “Oh you of little faith” )

THE LOVE always wants to give

  • THE LOVE will be happy when you receive.

Let no one reproach you

  • Let no one reproach you, keep on taking ( Example situation: Boaz to His workers )
  • Martha was trying to reproach Mary when Mary was trying to take from Jesus ( Mary sitting down, doing nothing, just taking form Jesus )
    • Jesus rebuked Martha
      • “Leave her alone, Mary has chosen the good path”

Basis of Healing

Deuteronomy 28:20-22
World English Bible (WEB)

20 Yahweh will send on you cursing, confusion, and rebuke, in all that you put your hand to do, until you are destroyed, and until you perish quickly; because of the evil of your doings, by which you have forsaken me. 21 Yahweh will make the pestilence cling to you, until he has consumed you from off the land, where you go in to possess it.22 Yahweh will strike you with consumption, with fever, with inflammation, with fiery heat, with the sword, with blight, and with mildew. They will pursue you until you perish.

Deuteronomy 28:27
World English Bible (WEB)

27 Yahweh will strike you with the boils of Egypt, with the tumors, with the scurvy, and with the itch, of which you can not be healed.

Deuteronomy 28:59-61
World English Bible (WEB)

59 then Yahweh will make your plagues fearful, and the plagues of your offspring,[a] even great plagues, and of long duration, and severe sicknesses, and of long duration. 60 He will bring on you again all the diseases of Egypt, which you were afraid of; and they will cling to you.61 Also every sickness and every plague, which is not written in the book of this law, Yahweh will bring them on you, until you are destroyed.

Galatians 3:13-14
World English Bible (WEB)

13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us. For it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree,”[a]14 that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Christ Jesus; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

  • 1500 years = Old covenant Law was active

Jeremiah 31:31-34
World English Bible (WEB)

31 Behold, the days come, says Yahweh, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: 32 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they broke, although I was a husband to them, says Yahweh. 33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says Yahweh: I will put my law in their inward parts, and in their heart will I write it; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people:34 and they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know Yahweh; for they shall all know me, from their least to their greatest, says Yahweh: for I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin will I remember no more.

For New Covenant People, sins and failures are not recorded

  • Hebrew 11, hall of fame, no sins are recorded

Example about Abraham

Romans 4:18-22
World English Bible (WEB)

18 Besides hope, Abraham in hope believed, to the end that he might become a father of many nations, according to that which had been spoken, “So will your offspring[a] be.”[b] 19 Without being weakened in faith, he didn’t consider his own body, already having been worn out, (he being about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. 20 Yet, looking to the promise of God, he didn’t waver through unbelief, but grew strong through faith, giving glory to God, 21 and being fully assured that what he had promised, he was also able to perform.22 Therefore it also was “credited to him for righteousness.”[c]

15 Therefore watch carefully how you walk, not as unwise, but as wise;16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore don’t be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. 18 Don’t be drunken with wine, in which is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit, 19 speaking to one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs; singing, and making melody in your heart to the Lord;20 giving thanks always concerning all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to God, even the Father;

Result of Worship: Better Human Mechanism

  • Better Children Parents relationship

Ephesians 5:22-28
World English Bible (WEB)

22 Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife, and Christ also is the head of the assembly, being himself the savior of the body. 24 But as the assembly is subject to Christ, so let the wives also be to their own husbands in everything.

25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the assembly, and gave himself up for it; 26 that he might sanctify it, having cleansed it by the washing of water with the word, 27 that he might present the assembly to himself gloriously, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without defect. 28 Even so husbands also ought to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself.

Proverbs 29:25

Spiritual Pride

  • Thinking that you could get revelation straight from the bible without the need of a preacher

Romans 10:14-17
World English Bible (WEB)

14 How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in him whom they have not heard? How will they hear without a preacher? 15 And how will they preach unless they are sent? As it is written:

“How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the Good News of peace,
    who bring glad tidings of good things!”[a]

16 But they didn’t all listen to the glad news. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our report?”[b] 17 So faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
