"We Have An Enemy" from Matthew 13:24-43

Psalm Reading
Psalm 20
For the director of music. A psalm of David.

1 May the LORD answer you when you are in distress;
may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.
2 May he send you help from the sanctuary
and grant you support from Zion.
3 May he remember all your sacrifices
and accept your burnt offerings.[b]
4 May he give you the desire of your heart
and make all your plans succeed.
5 May we shout for joy over your victory
and lift up our banners in the name of our God.

May the LORD grant all your requests.

6 Now this I know:
The LORD gives victory to his anointed.
He answers him from his heavenly sanctuary
with the victorious power of his right hand.
7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.
8 They are brought to their knees and fall,
but we rise up and stand firm.
9 LORD, give victory to the king!
Answer us when we call!



For our teaching this morning, Remember that the seed is the word of God.…

"Avoid Every Kind of Evil" 2 Chronicles 22

Image
When we are in bad influence - there will always be a possibility we can copy it.

Lust of this flesh and Pride of Life these are the major sins we have in this world.

Although it is wise to seek advice we must also weight and ponder the suggestions we received. When you ask for an advice you need to look what the Bible says, and not only depend on the Christians words. Hold on to the good. Don't be unequally yoke.

Psalm 1:1 Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,

"What Kind Of Soil Are You?" from Matthew 13:1-23

Happy Father's Day
Happy Father's day to all fathers! We are so proud of you!
Proverb 23:24
The father of a righteous man has great joy; he who has a wise son delights in Him.

Jesus told this parable to measure our faith.

Parables - Proverbs 1:2-6
2 for gaining wisdom and instruction;
for understanding words of insight;
3 for receiving instruction in prudent behavior,
doing what is right and just and fair;
4 for giving prudence to those who are simple,[a]
knowledge and discretion to the young—
5 let the wise listen and add to their learning,
and let the discerning get guidance—
6 for understanding proverbs and parables,
the sayings and riddles of the wise.

Jesus helps us in our limitation - that's why He explains in the parables. Seek, hear and listen to the word of God.

And the evil one in this parables can be the bird that eats or snatch the seed from the soil. Some people are happy in receiving the word but when persecution comes they withered and faith…

"Use God's Blessing (Correctly) Properly" from 2 Chronicles 21

Image
We learned Jehosaphat was a good King thou he made alliance with unbeliever. This gives us to our tonights theme "use God's blessing properly" and correctly. For example - some people are blessed with more than one cellphone, but most of them used thier own cell phone (blessing) for scams and fooling other people, spread gossip, etc.. Thus, using the blessing incorrectly and not for God's glory.

In our chapter tonight, Jehosaphat was blessed, and he gave the Kingdom to his first born son Jehoram.

Now if you can imagine what is the greatest gift?
the greatest gift God gave us is the spiritual blessing. Saved by grace. We don't limit God's blessing because the real blessing is to know God more.



"Rejoice to those who rejoice and mourn to those who mourn." Do most people follow that?
Most of the time - worldly people will do the other way around - they get jealous if you are happy and get happy if you mourn.

This is also the same as Jehoram used his position …

"Thou Shall Not Fear" from 2 Chronicles 20

Image
What is fear?
It is an emotion of alarm cause by expectation of danger. Most people will run and hide from the object of fear - which is the negative sign or reaction of fear.
The positive sign is to manage your reaction because if you fail to manage fear it can loose your opportunity.

Fear is also God's way for you to remember Him. Managing your fear will help you remember there is one who is ALL POWERFUL GOD that can help you in all kinds of fear.

2 Chronicles 20:4 - they all seek the Lord, if you can imagine if all of us will come and seek the Lord?
Big miracle can happen.
Just like as the Lord taught us to pray in Matthew 6.


There are many messages in the Bible that says when you pray to Lord Jesus Christ thier prayers was answered.
Anyone who is not with God is against God

What is faith?
Confident with assurance that God is there for you who will provide, love and protect.
That is why it is important that we have the relationship with God.

We should always remember that our prayer is no…

"God's Chosen Servant" from Matthew 12:15-37

Image
Though you have money but no God then what is the purpose of your life?

In this chapter Jesus focus on not following tradition. Sin begins in the mind from it comes the actions. God is interested in our heart and attitude.

We are saved individually and not by group. You are not saved by what religious group you are in.
For the believer there is no neutral either you're with God or against it.

Though we are doomed to hell God left his throne to become human (Jesus Christ) to die for our sins and save us. All we have to do is to accept the fact we are not perfect and have sinned against God.



John 16:7-8 But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. When he comes, he will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment:

James 5:16 (NIV)
Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righte…

"Be A Faithful Servant" (Serve Faithfully) from 2 Chronicles 19

Image
Henry Sy the owner of SM (Shoe Mart) was faithful in little things and as we can all see he was blessed with big things and owns many establishment.

Now in our study for tonight, Jehosaphat was committed to God but he made an alliance with Ahab who hate God. He made an alliance with unbeliever. The Bible taught us that we should not be unequally yoke. You can have acquaintance with unbelievers but don't get too close as in more than friendship.

Like Daniel he was surrounded with pagans and unbelievers but still he remain faithful to God. And, God was with him in the lion's den.

Faithfulness is so important.

Hebrews 6:10 God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.


And whenever we make a mistake surely we will be rebuke by the word of God to correct us.

Even though we are doing good in our ministry but if you compromise in another area, God will see the area you need to change.

Fear - is to res…
