  • Thorns are personalities

Fear and trembling

  • Fear in itself is fear
  • Trembling is itself is Trembling
  • Fear and Trembling together it is Hebraism (it is different meaning )

12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling;

  • Work out your own salvation. Why? Because its God who works in you
  • The Fact the God is working in us all the time, giving us ideas…

Mark 5:30-33
New King James Version (NKJV)

30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched My clothes?”

31 But His disciples said to Him, “You see the multitude thronging You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’

32 And He looked around to see her who had done this thing. 33 But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth.

Jeremiah 33:8-9
New King James Version (NKJV)

I will cleanse them from all their iniquity by which they have sinned against Me, and I will pardon all their iniquities by which they have sinned and by which they have transgressed against Me. Then it shall be to Me a name of joy, a praise, and an honor before all nations of the earth, who shall hear all the good that I do to them; they shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and all the prosperity that I provide for it.’

Plural Shows the Intensity

Either one of below Two things make it plural :

  • adding “mem” at the end
  • adding “ri” at the end

Abundant Life

L’Chaim

  • Lives
  • Abundant Life / Intense Life
  • Ends with “mem” : Plural
  • Le, chaim
  • L’Chai : Singular

Death of Christ

Muth

  • Death singular
  • Isaiah 53, the Death of Jesus Christ is Plural. Severe Death.
  • http://biblehub.com/hebrew/4191.htm

Sons of Joseph

  • Manasseh
  • Ephraim : Ends with “mem” : which means Double Fruitfulness ( mem makes the fruit plural )
    • Ephrath : Fruit
    • What a name to call a boy Ephraem
  • Another place where Ephratha is mentioned : Bethlehem Ephrata , place where Jesus was born ( there is another different Bethlehem in the North )
    • Means : Fruitful Bethlehem

Blessedness’s

  • Blessed = “Blessedness’s” is the actual meaning
  • http://biblehub.com/hebrew/ashrei_835.htm
  • ashrei in Hebrew ( from the root word Esher )
    • ashrei is plural

Psalm 1:1
New King James Version (NKJV)

Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
    Nor stands in the path of sinners,
    Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;

Psalm 32:1
New King James Version (NKJV)

32 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven,
Whose sin is covered.

Matthew 5:3
New King James Version (NKJV)

Blessed are the poor in spirit,
    For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Lives 

  • Lives, Plural
  • Lives not only for this earth but also for eternity
John 10:10
New King James Version (NKJV)
10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

Showing intensity by saying “SINS”

1 John 1:9
New King James Version (NKJV)

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Confessing : Act between Non-Believers

  • End results : still not believers in Christ
  • Because Christ was there but not yet manifested at that time

Mark 1:5
New King James Version (NKJV)

Then all the land of Judea, and those from Jerusalem, went out to him and were all baptized by him in the Jordan River, confessing their sins.

Argument : 
  • confessing of sins is plural
  • confessing of sins is for believers
  • confessing of sins is in present tense

Present tense is also not just something happening at the moment but it can also mean characteristic

(

Eg:

  • Soap washes,
  • Blood of Jesus cleanses ( it is used in present tense but also Characteristic )

)

  • Here it is a characteristic of turning away from sin to God

Its a Hebraism for turning from sin to God

Gospel is THE power

THE power

  • “THE” means definite article
  • ONLY power, NO OTHER power
  • Power in Greek means Dunamis, from which the word “Dynamite” comes from

Redemption and Provision

  • THE power to redeem us from sickness
  • THE power to redeem us from poverty
  • THE power to redeem us from lack
  • THE power to give us health
  • THE power to give us wealth
  • THE power to make us prosperous
  • Gospel is THE power, which reveals the Righteousness of God as a gift unto us.
  • It does not reveal the sinfulness of man revealed.
  • Biggest problem in the Church is the sin consciousness

We have HOLY HANDS

All Believers in Christ

  • Will have Holy Hands

1 Timothy 2:8

New King James Version (NKJV)

8 I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting;

Holy Hands

  • Hands set apart for Christ

As a result

  • Whatever we touch shall prosper
  • When we touch a diseased person, the person will be healed
    • Christ in us will be passed on to the diseased person. Where there is Christ, there will be no disease.

Being heir of the world

Heir of the World

Obadiah 1:17
New King James Version (NKJV)

Israel’s Final Triumph

17 “But on Mount Zion there shall be deliverance,
And there shall be holiness;
The house of Jacob shall possess their possessions.

People of the God needs to do something

  • One thing is to they shall possess their possessions. Another thing is to posses it.
  • One thing is to they shall inherit their inheritance. Another thing is to inherit it.
  • One thing is to there shall be deliverance. Another thing is to be delivered

Many of the places in Israel rightly belong to Israelites which could be possessed by Jacob. But Jacob possessed only a part of it.

Heir

  • One who receives his allotted possession by right of sonship

Romans 4:13
New King James Version (NKJV)

13 For the promise that he would be the heir of the world was not to Abraham or to his seed through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.

  • Promises are of no effect
  • Faith void

NOT through the law, but through the righteousness of faith

Being a Heir includes

  • Health
  • Healing
  • Prosperity
  • Happiness
  • Joy
  • Peace

Galatians 4

  • Nepios : infant old testament ( People under Law ) He cannot drive father’s Lamborghini
  •  Nothing to do with spiritual growth
  • Adoption in greek is there : not correct meaning ( placement of son  )

Its all about Inheritance

  • Jews fighting for their Land when all is theirs because they are under law.
  • Inherit Vs Fight for it
  • Nothing to do with how good you are? how bad you are ?

Psalm 44:3
New King James Version (NKJV)

3 For they did not gain possession of the land by their own sword,
Nor did their own arm save them;
But it was Your right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your countenance,
Because You favored them.

  • Both to the believers
    • Romans : you cannot justified by the law
    • Galatians : you cannot be sanctified by the law ( you cannot live a holy life by the law )

Two Covenants

Galatians 4:21-31
New King James Version (NKJV)

21 Tell me, you who desire to be under the law, do you not hear the law? 22 For it is written that Abraham had two sons: the one by a bondwoman, the other by a freewoman. 23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born according to the flesh, and he of the freewoman through promise, 24 which things are symbolic. For these are the[a] two covenants: the one from Mount Sinai which gives birth to bondage, which is Hagar— 25 for this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia, and corresponds to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children— 26 but the Jerusalem above is free, which is the mother of us all. 27 For it is written:

“Rejoice, O barren,
You who do not bear!
Break forth and shout,
You who are not in labor!
For the desolate has many more children
Than she who has a husband.”
28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are children of promise. 29 But, as he who was born according to the flesh then persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, even so it is now. 30 Nevertheless what does the Scripture say? “Cast out the bondwoman and her son, for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.” 31 So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman but of the free.

Footnotes:

Galatians 4:24 NU-Text and M-Text omit the.
Galatians 4:27 Isaiah 54:1
Galatians 4:30 Genesis 21:10

  • Everything from mount sinai gives birth to bondage
  • Bondage includes
    • Mental Bondage
    • Physical Bondage
    • Financial Bondage
  • Child of Law prosecuting the Child of Grace
  • Grace people has holiness by accident

Galatians 5:1
New King James Version (NKJV)

Christian Liberty

5 Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.

Exodus 23:25-33
New King James Version (NKJV)

25 “So you shall serve the Lord your God, and He will bless your bread and your water. And I will take sickness away from the midst of you. 26 No one shall suffer miscarriage or be barren in your land; I will fulfill the number of your days.

27 “I will send My fear before you, I will cause confusion among all the people to whom you come, and will make all your enemies turn their backs to you. 28 And I will send hornets before you, which shall drive out the Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite from before you. 29 I will not drive them out from before you in one year, lest the land become desolate and the beasts of the field become too numerous for you. 30 Little by little I will drive them out from before you, until you have increased (parah – fruitful ), and you inherit the land. 31 And I will set your bounds from the Red Sea to the sea, Philistia, and from the desert to the River.[a] For I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand, and you shall drive them out before you. 32 You shall make no covenant with them, nor with their gods. 33 They shall not dwell in your land, lest they make you sin against Me. For if you serve their gods, it will surely be a snare to you.”

  • Hornets : wasps
  • Hornets means sera… – find source -…  in hebrew, root word is leprosy (ethemology )
    • God send diseases even among the enemies
    • God uses small things ( could be non weapon kind of things )
    • God use small things to confound the strong enemies
    • E.g. Ezekiel 38 , God used hail stones and earth quake
  • in your land : in your inheritance
  • Healing included in your inheritance
  • Blessings in your inheritance
  • number of days in your inheritance
  • Even the good water has to be blessed
  • As long as Israel is in the Land, God says “I will do these things for you”
  • Land for them is physical land, for us its inheritance.

Why still We haven’t inherited all our inheritance?

Why I haven’t received it?
Why its so slow? 

Joshua 1:3
New King James Version (NKJV)

3 Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you, as I said to Moses.

  • Already God said “Entire land is yours”
  • Just walk, daily thing, effortless, rest
  • Little by Little
  • Until you have increased
    • God waiting for you to be strong
    • then you will inherit the land

Being Fruitful first

This applies for Company, Church, Family..etc

  • increased (parah – fruitful )
    • Jesus born in iprathah Bethlehem ( 2 Bethlehems in Israel, One is north, another one where Jesus was born)
    • iparahth means fruitfulness
    • He was born in fruitfulness house of bread.

First words of God

Genesis 1:28
New King James Version (NKJV)

28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

First words of God to men is Grace

Grace, 5 points

  1. Be Fruitful
  2. Multiply
  3. Fill the earth
  4. Subdue
  5. Dominion

E.g. Google

  • First be fruitful : Motivate each of the employees to be Fruitful ( don’t look for expansion first )
  • Multiply
  • Then you will fill the earth with Brand name
  • Then you can control it
    • Control of a company / Church : May the control be in the hands of those who are meek, in the hands those who are righteous, in the hands of those who are kind and then you have dominion.
  • Dominion not over the man. Dominion over the sky, the sea, the land

1. Righteousness of God by Faith

  • When ever you says “I am the righteousness of God in Christ”, you inherit little by little
  • Then you see things happen, for you, in you, through you and around you
  • Get back the Righteousness consciousness.

Romans 4:13
New King James Version (NKJV)

The Promise Granted Through Faith

13 For the promise that he would be the heir of the world was not to Abraham or to his seed through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.

2. The word of Grace

Acts 20:29-32
New King James Version (NKJV)

29 For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock. 30 Also from among yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after themselves. 31 Therefore watch, and remember that for three years I did not cease to warn everyone night and day with tears.

32 “So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified ( Believers ).

  1. Build you up
  2. Give you an inheritance
  • Pervert means, there is something original
  • Bible has different expressions : Word of His power, Word of His truth. But this is specifically about the Word of His grace

3. Proclaim the Lord’s death

Holy communion

Genesis 15:8-9
New King James Version (NKJV)

8 And he said, “Lord God, how shall I know that I will inherit it?”

9 So He said to him, “Bring Me a three-year-old heifer, a three-year-old female goat, a three-year-old ram, a turtledove, and a young pigeon.”

5, number of Grace

  1. a three-year-old heifer,
  2. a three-year-old female goat,
  3. a three-year-old ram,
  4. a turtledove, and
  5. a young pigeon

How shall i inherit this land?

  • Jesus ministry : 3 year
  • Picture of Jesus Christ to His death
  • Bring me the token of my Son and His death
  • An animal sacrifice that reminds God of His son

1 Corinthians 11:26
New King James Version (NKJV)

26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.

  • Don’t take it as a ritual
  • Have a revelation
  • First day of the week they broke bread house to house in the chapter of Acts, they came together
  • Small thing to you, but its a great thing
  • Every time you take, you proclaim the Lord’s death
  • Angels come to a cease
  • Demons flee
  • If you go by the Lord’s death, your inheritance is yours
    • they (Angels, demons ) say that this is the most powerful man
  • If you go by your efforts, your meriting, your deserving, . they got you
  • Don’t be lofty and proud like, what these small things can do. This is most powerful than radiation.

Proclaim the Lord’s death

What happens when you proclaims the Lord’s death?

1 Samuel 7:10
New King James Version (NKJV)

10 Now as Samuel was offering up the burnt offering, the Philistines drew near to battle against Israel. But the Lord thundered with a loud thunder upon the Philistines that day, and so confused them that they were overcome before Israel.

  • You will confuse enemies
  • You will confuse the demonic force

Can i hurt my inheritance by my sin?

What happened if I didn’t claim my inheritance?

  • What happened if I didn’t claim my inheritance, will it become old?

1 Peter 1:4
New King James Version (NKJV)

4 to an inheritance incorruptible ( not subject to death ) and undefiled ( cannot be defiled by sin ) and that does not fade away ( not subject to time ), reserved (watch over) in heaven for you,

  • reserved ( watch over ) : No one can go to heaven and remove your inheritance. You enjoy on earth, but safe guarded on heaven
  • incorruptible ( not subject to death )
  • undefiled ( cannot be defiled by sin ) 
    • When Jesus touched the Lepor (uncleanness) , Jesus didn’t get what the lepor had. The Lepor caught what Jesus had (Clean health)
  • does not fade away : Greek word used for flowers : Perennial beauty of the flower ( there is no flower like that )
    • Everything fades
    • People say that as “ravages of time”
      • People used to say “I used to be beautiful”
    • Bible says, Inheritance does not fade way ( means not subject to time )
    • Thats what Jesus died to give us

Other notes

  • Charles Spurgeon example
  • Be careful with 1 John 1:9
  • upper room teachings are all for the church
  • World : Cosmos : world and universe
  • Larger encompasses the lesser
  • Example : a girl wearing a new white dress ( righteousness by faith )
  • devil seeing this, wanted to attack by emphasis on law
  • Emotions of indication of what you think, what you think is because what you believe.
    • If you have depression , then you have wrong believing.
      • Dip yourself in the Word of Grace

Much More Life

Romans 5:8-10
New King James Version (NKJV)

8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. 10 For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.

  • Much More than normal life
  • Much More than normal health
  • Much More than normal healing
  • Much More than normal prosperous

Labour not to be rich

Proverbs 23:4-5
King James Version (KJV)

4 Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom.

5 Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven.

Do not overwork to be rich

Proverbs 23:4-5
New King James Version (NKJV)

4 Do not overwork to be rich;
Because of your own understanding, cease!
5 Will you set your eyes on that which is not?
For riches certainly make themselves wings;
They fly away like an eagle toward heaven.

What is of your own understanding?

Overworking
