"Life of the Christian is a Battle Ground" from 1 Chronicles 7

Nelson's New Illustrated Bible Dictionary: Completely Revised and Updated EditionThe word of God emphasize the battle of Israel on this chapter. The reason they were defeated because they counted the numbers their trops and God was upset as He doesn't want the Israelites to trust in numbers. God want us to trust in Him only.

With a little God can do a lot. He chooses the weak to lead the strong. The power doesn't come from us but from God.

God wants us to trust in Him completely. The fear of the Lord is the Beginning of Wisdom. The fool will say "I don't need the wisdom of God I have my own wisdom".
Our trust is in the Lord.

God wants us to surrender to Him whole heartedly. Trauma and problem in the past is like a time bomb if you don't give it to Jesus completely. The enemy will always come after us, that it is important to cast it all out to Jesus.
Remember that we are capable of doing anything if we depend to God.

  • Make sure that the word of God move you in order to move someone else. Allow God to speak to you. Do not depend on your own wisdom.
  • Greater is he who is in you than He who is in the world.
  • The best miracle that happened is our salvation. Yet we forgot it all the time.
  • When we are mourning God can use people to comfort us.
  • Use God's word to comfort people.
  • Satan can destruct us with our emotions. Be careful about what you feel.

Bible Names Meaning

  • Abiezer - Father of health.
  • Issachar - Son of Jacob; means reward; recompense.
  • Uzzi - means strong
  • Ephraim - Fruitful in life of affliction

"Only By The Blood" from Revelation 12:10-17

We believe by the blood of Jesus through faith. The blood will continue to protect us. And keep us from Satan attack.

What is the difference between condemnation and conviction?

Condemnation - satan is pointing in your heart trying to discourage you not to serve.

Conviction - pointing fingers gently to make you repent and serve God.

Romans 8:33-38
33Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36As it is written:
"For your sake we face death all day long;
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered." 37No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,

Jesus can kill the enemy and it is not us who can kill it, we can overcome the enemy by the blood of Jesus Christ.

Luke 9:23 Then he said to them all: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.

Are we rejoicing when Jesus saved us?

Luke 15:10 In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents."

Cast your cares upon Him. If you trust in the Lord He will care for you.

In Revelation 12:14 The woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the desert, where she would be taken care of for a time, times and half a time, out of the serpent's reach.

Wings are not literal. Wings means that God will protect you.

Matthew 28:20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

Zechariah 13:8-9
8 In the whole land," declares the LORD,
"two-thirds will be struck down and perish;
yet one-third will be left in it.

9 This third I will bring into the fire;
I will refine them like silver
and test them like gold.
They will call on my name
and I will answer them;
I will say, 'They are my people,'
and they will say, 'The LORD is our God.' "

If we are not careful discouragement can pull us down, and it will kill us if we are not carefull.

The enemy will always attack specially those who obey and believe God's commandments.

But keep in my mind God will protect us. As Jesus said you are the salt and light of the world.

Pastor's Message
1 Corinthians 15:12-14 12But if it is preached that Christ has been raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. 14And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.
The message about the resurrection in the Gospel is vital and without the resurrection the Gospel is NOT COMPLETE. That is why we need to believe that there is resurrection from the dead. The Bible says that if we believe in our HEART that God RAISED Him (Jesus) from the dead, we will be saved.

"The Enemy Has Been Defeated" from Revelation 12:1-9

We must be aware that Jesus already defeated our enemy. And we have won the battle.

The woman in Revelation 12 is the nation of Israel.

John 8:44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

God will not tempt you but He will protect you from Satan if you just let Him. As Christians even if we are successful Satan will do everything to destroy you but make sure you know that Jesus already defeated Satan.

Ezekiel 28:12-19 (The description of satan.)
12 "Son of man, take up a lament concerning the king of Tyre and say to him: 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says:
" 'You were the model of perfection,
full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.

13 You were in Eden,
the garden of God;
every precious stone adorned you:
ruby, topaz and emerald,
chrysolite, onyx and jasper,
sapphire, turquoise and beryl.
Your settings and mountings were made of gold;
on the day you were created they were prepared.

14 You were anointed as a guardian cherub,
for so I ordained you.
You were on the holy mount of God;
you walked among the fiery stones.

15 You were blameless in your ways
from the day you were created
till wickedness was found in you.

16 Through your widespread trade
you were filled with violence,
and you sinned.
So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God,
and I expelled you, O guardian cherub,
from among the fiery stones.

17 Your heart became proud
on account of your beauty,
and you corrupted your wisdom
because of your splendor.
So I threw you to the earth;
I made a spectacle of you before kings.

18 By your many sins and dishonest trade
you have desecrated your sanctuaries.
So I made a fire come out from you,
and it consumed you,
and I reduced you to ashes on the ground
in the sight of all who were watching.

19 All the nations who knew you
are appalled at you;
you have come to a horrible end
and will be no more.' "

Satan will do everything to tempt us. He has the authority over the Earth now because when Adam and Eve sinned against God, Satan ruled the Earth.

The stars symbolizes the Angels. How many Angels rebels against God?
1/3 of the heaven's Angels joined the rebellion.

Daniel 8:10 It grew until it reached the host of the heavens, and it threw some of the starry host down to the earth and trampled on them.

Jesus He is the King of Kings
Psalm 2:9-10
9 You will rule them with an iron scepter [a] ;
you will dash them to pieces like pottery."

10 Therefore, you kings, be wise;
be warned, you rulers of the earth.

When Christ rebuke the devil, remember that the devil ask permission to Jesus, and the evil spirit was cast to the pigs.

Whatever you are experiencing now, you can overcome it with the Holy Spirit - depend on His power - don't boast.

Whether ministry or anything don't boast as it is not our power but God.

God is faithful to us. Jesus Christ is our defender our attorney upon judgement day. And your enemy has been defeated.

Pastor's Message

Psalm 119:73a Your Hands made me and formed me;

We are created by God according to His image and He loved His creation (He lover you with and everlasting LOVE.) And there's a lot of things that we need to be grateful of. Thank Him that we have feet to walk, hands to touch and carry things, eyes to see, nose to breath, mouth to talk and eat and etc.

The Bible says that we are fearfully and wonderfully made! Oh thank Him for He is our Maker.

"Imitate What is Good" from 1 Chronicles 5

In Nothing We TrustImitate means to duplicate just like a photocopy.

As Christians we need to imitate Jesus and all that are pleasing in His eyes.

In our chapter for tonight 1 Chronicles 5, Reuben the first born of Israel defiled his father's marriage and it was given to Joseph.

Leviticus 18:8 "Do not have sexual relations with your father's wife; that would dishonor your father."

Because of that fact, Reuben was not listed as the first born in genealogical record in accordance with his birthright.

Micah 5:2 "But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah,
though you are small among the clans of Judah,
out of you will come for me
one who will be ruler over Israel,
whose origins are from of old,
from ancient times."

It was prophesize that the the savior will come in tribe of Judah.

If we focus in our life's problems and temptations we will get destructed in our Christian walk.

People these days worship money more than heavenly things.

When we are in the middle of the battle and we thought that we can't do it, keep in mind that all of our plans apart from God we can do nothing, we must depend on God because the battle was God's. Cry out to God and don't do it on our own.

Jeremiah 17:7-8
7 "But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD,
whose confidence is in him.

8 He will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit."

How many times do we trust in God?
We need to rely on His power every second.

1 Chronicles 5:20 They were helped in fighting them, and God handed the Hagrites and all their allies over to them, because they cried out to him during the battle. He answered their prayers, because they trusted in him.

Joshua 10:14
God was holding the run in answer to Joshua prayer.

If we do it the Bible's way surely we will be successful.

Sometimes we prioritize the things of this world more than God. For the love of money is the root of all evil. If we love anything more than God, then we are doomed.

Remain faithful as God gives us the free will either to obey, or to over come evil and imitate Jesus, imitate what is good.

"Jesus Rules" Revelation 11:15-19

(The two witnesses Moses and Elijah)

Though Jesus was crown to be the King of the world He didn't claim it. Satan rules the kingdom of the world. But God is in control and we need to know and understand that He reigns.

Exodus 15:18 The LORD will reign for ever and ever."

Almighty means omnipotent, all power, the great I am
Jesus rules and reign in our lives we need to know that He will judge and reward us accordingly.

What is righteous indignation?
Remember Jesus in the Temple when He was upset to the vendors - that was the righteous indignation.
But if you were upset because someone talked badly about you then that is a sin.

Hebrews 9:27 Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment,

Who was the destroyer of the Earth?

Satan and the unbelievers who follows the things of this world.

Be vigilant and be careful with satan as he can devour and eat us (1 john greater is he who is in your. . .)

Follow the example of Christ and Depend in the power of the Holy Spirit.

The symbol of the Ark of Covenant:
Presence of God
Faithfulness of God
Agreement of God with the people of Israel that they will obey God.

If we are faithful God will remain in us.
If we are faithless God will remain faithful.

His love will endure forever even if we are discourage and depressed, God is faithful and He will reward us.
As God's people we need to put our trust in Him, remember the song "You Never Let Go".
We Shall Not Be Shaken

Pastor's Message
Psalm 119:18 Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law.
The psalmist ask God for help that he may see amazing things in His word. Even though he wrote this psalm, notice here that he still have the attitude of asking God to give him spiritual eyes to see the truth.
The same thing for us, we need to pray for understanding and ask God to open our spiritual eyes before reading God's word.

"Be used by God" from Revelation 11:1-14

  • Gentiles - are those who have no relationship with the Lord.
  • Sackcloth- represent humility.
We need to have humility to be used by God, used our knowledge for His glory and not to boast yourself. God use us for His grace not because of our background.
  • Olive Tree - figurative language means the anointing of the Holy Spirit.
Charismania - is when you are filled with the Holy Spirit and have charisma to minister.

- Elija never died brought up in heaven.
2 Kings 2:11 As they were walking along and talking together, suddenly a chariot of fire and horses of fire appeared and separated the two of them, and Elijah went up to heaven in a whirlwind.

You become what you think. If you keep on thinking of this worldly things then it will hinder you from growing spiritualy.
Get the obvious, what is your priority in life?
Where your treasure is there your heart also.

Don't be rebellious with God. Being rebellious is always complaining. Don't complain and argue with God. Don't be proud.

Pastor's Message
Psalm 118:1 Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; His love endure forever.
Are you always thankful for His LOVE? For His Goodness? To tell you honestly, sometimes, I am not. Even though I utter words "Thank You Lord" sometimes I just say these words for the sake of sayin it and not mean with my heart. But He reminded me to sincere thank Him for His goodness and His Love.

The Lord's love for us is forever but we are not constant in thanking Him for that love. Therefore, we should thank Him all the time and appreciate His faithfulness and great love that He has shown unto us!
