Notes & Transcripts

INTRODUCTION

HAVE YOU EVER NEEDED TO BE RESCUED FROM A LIFE THREATENING SITUATION? CAR ACCIDENT? DROWNING? DISEASE? TERMINAL ILLNESS?
SOME OTHER CRISIS THAT COULD HAVE SNATCHED YOUR LIFE AWAY
EVEN IF YOU HAVEN’T CONFRONTED DEATH PERSONALLY, WE PROBABLY KNOW SOMEONE WHO HAS
WHEN THINKING ABOUT LIFE THREATENING SITUATIONS, WE ALL MUST FACE THE CRISIS OF SIN
WHETHER WE ACKNOWLEDGE THE SIN OR DENY IT DOES NOT CHANGE THE REALITY THAT SIN WILL DOOM US TO ETERNAL DEATH
EXAMPLE-DEATH IS NOT THE END OF LIFE
WE ARE ALL GRIPPED BY THE HAND OF SIN, HELD IN BONDAGE BY ITS POWER
AND NO MATTER HOW MUCH WE TRY NOT TO SIN, WE DISCOVER THAT WE STILL DO WRONG AND COME UP SHORT
WE CANNOT ATTAIN PERFECTION, NO MATTER HOW MUCH WE TRY
WE ARE ALWAYS FAILING OR COMING UP SHORT IN ONE AREA OR ANOTHER
NO ONE CAN ESCAPE DEATH
DEATH IS THE OPPONENT THAT WE ALL MUST FACE
HOWEVER, WE DO HAVE ONE WHO HAS CONQUERED THE GRAVE AND THAT IT JESUS CHRIST
AND THE MESSAGE THAT HE BRINGS IS THAT WE CAN BE SAVED
THE WONDERFUL GIFT OF SALVATION HAS BEEN OFFERED TO THE HUMAN RACE
SALVATION FROM SIN AND DEATH CAN BE OURS TOO
GOD SENT THE SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST, TO PROVIDE REDEMPTION TO US
IT IS THIS GREAT MESSAGE THAT THE PROPHET ISAIAH PROCLAIMED
AND HE PROCLAIMED THIS MESSAGE AROUND 700 YEARS BEFORE CHRIST CAME INTO THE WORLD
THIS IS THE GIFT OF SALVATION THROUGH THE COMING SAVIOR

BODY

700 YEARS BEFORE THE BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST, GOD GAVE A WONDERFUL PROMISE OF SALVATION THROUGH THE COMING SAVIOR
DIRECTLY AFTER HIS BAPTISM AND WILDERNESS EXPERIENCE, HE WENT TO HIS HOME TOWN IN NAZARETH
ON THE SABBATH, HE ATTENDED THE WORSHIP SERVICE AND PERSONALLY STOOD UP AND READ THE SCRIPTURES
HE READ THE VERY PORTION OF SCRIPTURE THAT WE ARE READING TODAY
AFTER HE HAD READ THESE SCRIPTURES HE SAID, “THIS DAY IS THIS SCRIPTURE FULFILLED IN YOUR EARS”
HE WOULD NOT FULFILL THIS MISSION EMPTY HANDED
THE SAVIOR HAD STEPPED ONTO THE SCENE AND SAYS, THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD GOD IS UPON ME

1. THE TOOLS

THIS IS THE SAME SPIRIT THAT HAS THE CAPACITY TO WORK WONDERFUL NEWNESS
IT IS THE SAME SPIRIT THAT BLEWW BACK THE POWER OF CHAOS
GOD IS ABOUT READY TO WORK A WONDERFUL NEWNESS IN YOUR LIFE
YOU MAY BE GOING AROUND IN CIRCLES AND CYCLES BUT THE SPIRIT OF GOD IS GOING BRING A NEWNESS TO YOUR LIFE
YOU’VE TRIED EVERYTHING ELSE
YOU MAY THINK THAT A DIFFERENT BOYFRIEND WILL BRING A NEWNESS TO YOUR LIFE
YOU MAY THINK THAT PARTYING WITH SOME FRIENDS WILL BRING A NEWNESS IN YOUR LIFE
YOU MAY EVEN THINK THAT HOPPING CHURCHES WILL BRING A NEWNESS INTO YOUR LIFE
BUT, THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN BRING A NEWNESS INTO YOUR LIFE IS THE HOLY SPIRIT
HE IS ONE OF THE GREATEST TOOLS THAT YOU CAN HAVE IN YOUR LIFE, BECAUSE YOU DON’T NEED AN INSTRUCTION MANUEL WITH HIM
HE TAKES OVER HIMSELF, AND SAYS IF YOU WILL ALLOW ME I WILL BE THE GREATEST TOOL YOU NEED THROUGHOUT LIFE
FOR, IT IS NOT BY MIGHT, NOR POWER........
AND THE CHAOS WILL BE GONE AS WELL
FOR, THE CHAOS WILL BE GONE
HE WILL REMOVE THE CHAOS IN YOUR FINANCES, MARRIAGE, BUSINESS, RELATIONSHIPS
HE WILL EVEN MAKE A WAY WHERE THERE SEEMS TO BE NO WAY
IF THERE IS AN OCEAN IN FRONT OF YOU
IF THERE IS AN OBSTACLE AS BIG AS A SEA
HE WILL MAKE A WAY WHERE THERE SEEMS TO BE NO WAY
IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT KIND OF OBSTACLE IS STANDING IN FRONT OF YOU, THE SPIRIT WILL GIVE YOU THE VICTORY
WHEN PHARAOH WAS TROUBLED WITH SOME DIRECTIONAL DREAMS, HE LEARNED ABOUT JOSEPH BEING ABLE TO INTERPRET DREAMS
AND WHEN THEY TOLD JOSEPH, WE HAVE HEARD THAT YOU ARE ABLE TO INTERPRET DREAMS (CUPBEARER)
JOSEPH SAID, IT IS NOT IN ME BUT GOD WILL GIVE YOU A FAVORABLE ANSWER
ISN’T THAT JUST LIKE THE HOLY SPIRIT, HE TAKES WHAT IS OF CHRIST’S AND SHOWS IT TO GOD’S PEOPLE
AND PHARAOH RECOGNIZED AND SAID, CAN WE FIND A MAN LIKE THIS, IN WHOM IS THE SPIRIT OF GOD
CAN PEOPLE RECOGNIZE THAT THE SPIRIT OF GOD IS IN YOU?
THE HOLY SPIRIT IS DWELLING INSIDE EVERY BELIEVER AND
WHEN THE ENEMY COMES IN, LIKE A FLOOD THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD WILL RAISE UP A STANDARD AGAINST HIM
NOT ONLY IS THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD GOD UPON HIM, HE HAS ANOTHER TOOL
HE HAS BEEN ANOINTED
THE ANOINTING EMPOWERS ANYONE FOR SERVICE
SINCE CHRIST IS ON A MISSION ON THIS EARTH, HE WOULD NEED THE ANOINTING
........ANOINTED HIM TO : BRING, TO BIND UP, TO PROCLAIM, TO RELEASE, TO COMFORT, TO PROVIDE, TO GIVE
“TO BRING” GOOD NEWS TO THE POOR BUT HE CAN BRING OTHER THINGS AS WELL
HE CAN BRING YOU THE FINANCES TO MEET THE NEED
HE CAN BRING YOU THE WISDOM TO SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM
HE CAN BRING YOU ANYTHING THAT YOU NEED
EVERY GOOD AND PERFECT GIFT COMES FROM ABOVE
James 1:17 KJV 1900
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
HOWEVER, THE BEST HE CAN BRING IS THE GOOD NEWS-THE NEWS THAT YOU CAN ENETER INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
THE NEWS THAT SAYS, I’M LAYING MY LIFE DOWN SO THAT YOURS CAN GO UP
NOT ONLY DOES HE BRING, HE BINDS UP
IF YOU ARE BROKENHEARTED, HE WILL PUT YOUR HEART BACK TOGETHER
GOD IS LOVE
IF ANYTHING IS BROKEN IN YOUR LIFE, HE WILL HEAL IT
THE OIL IS SYMBOLIC FOR THE ANOINTING AND IF YOU ARE WOUNDED ANYWHERE, OIL WILL BE POURED ALL OVER THE BROKENNESS
THE ANOINTING IS ABLE TO BRING IN THE YEAR OF THE LORD’S FAVOR
GET READY FOR A NEW KIND OF FAVOR
IS THERE ANYONE AND YOU NEED SOME FAVOR IN YOUR LIFE
FAVOR IN YOUR JOB, FAVOR IN YOUR SCHOOL, BOSS, CAREER, OPEN A NEW DOOR
IT IS THE YEAR OF THE LORD’S FAVOR UPON YOUR LIFE
THE ANOINTING WILL RELEASE, COMFORT, PROVIDE, AND GIVE
TELL YOUR NEIGHBOR, GET READY FOR A RELEASE IN YOUR LIFE
A RELEASE OF GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS, FRUITFULNESS, FINANCES
A RELEASE FROM WHATEVER IS HOLDING YOU BACK
THAT’S WHY YOU CAN TAKE COMFORT
BECAUSE THE ANOINTING IS RELEASING, PROVIDING
PROVIDING FOR YOUR TOMORROW
PROVIDING THROUGH THE DARKNESS IN LIFE
PROVIDING OPPORTUNITIES
AND GIVING
GIVING YOU SECOND CHANCES, NEW MERCIES, GRACE, STRENGTH, FAITH, FIGHT, PRAISE
YOU COULDN’T DO IT ON YOUR OWN, SO GOD BRINGS THE ANOINTING IN YOUR LIFE SO THAT YOU CAN BE FREE
AFTER HE TELLS YOU ABOUT HIS TOOLS, CHRIST TELLS YOU ABOUT HIS

2. TRANSACTION

I DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU BUT I COUKD USE SOME TRANSACTIONS WITH HEAVEN RIGHT NOT
HOW MANY OF YOU COULD USE A TRANSACTION WITH HEAVEN?
GOD SAYS GIVE ME YOUR ASHES AND I WILL GIVE YOU BEAUTY
WHERE THE FIRE HAS DIED DOWN IN YOUR LIFE, GOD CAN BEAUTIFY THOSE PLACES AGAIN
ASH IS A SIGN OF SORROW
WHATEVER HAS BROUGHT SORROW INTO YOUR LIFE, GOD SAYS GIVE IT TO ME AND I WILL GIVE YOU BEAUTY
NORMALLY YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR SOMEKIND OF BENEFIT
BUT GOD IS SO GOOD, HE SAYS, BRING ME YOUR WORST AND I WILL GIVE YOU MY BEST
HIS STRENGTH IS MADE PERFECT IN YOUR WEAKNESS
WHEN YOU ARE WEAK THEN HE IS STRONG
HIS STRENGTH WILL FLOW TO YOUR WEAKNESS SO MUCH THAT YOU WILL BE LIKE THE MAN AT THE GATE CALLED BEAUTIFUL
USE THE EXAMPLE
YOUR RELATIONSHIPS MAY BE FULL OF ASHES BUT GOD WILL GIVE YOU BEAUTY
YOU JUST HAVE TO LEARN HOW TO GIVE HIM EVERYTHING THAT YOU HAVE
WHEN YOU GIVE HIM EVERYTHING THAT YOU HAVE, HE GIVES YOU EVERYTHING THAT HE HAS
THAT WHAT HE TOLD THE SAMARITAN WOMAN IF YOU GIVE ME WHAT YOU HAVE, I WILL GIVE YOU WHAT I HAVE AND YOU WILL NEVER THIRST AGAIN
IF YOU ARE MOURNING OVER SOMETHING, HE WILL POUR IN THE OIL OF GLADNESS
EVEN IF YOU ARE FEELING HEAVY THIS MORNING, HE WILL TRADE YOUR HEAVINESS IF YOU WILL GIVE HIM A PRAISE
HOW MANY OF YOU CAN PRAISE HIM TO LIFT THE HEAVINESS OFF OF YOU
HE IS READY TO MAKE THE TRANSACTION WITH YOU
YOU DON’T NEED TO LEARN 3 STEPS, 5 STEPS, 7 STEPS
JUST ONE STEP WILL BE SUFFICIENT THIS MORNING
HE SAYS, COME UNTO ME ALL YE THAT LABOR...............
ARE YOU HEAVY ON YOUR HEART, HEAVY IN YOUR MIND, BODY
TAKE THE PRAISE FROM HIM THIS MORNING
PRAISE ON YOUR HEART, MIND, ON YOUR BODY
GIVE HIM SOME PRAISE IN THIS ROOM
YOU HAVE THE TOOLS, TRANSACTION, NOW COMES THE TRANSFORMATION

3. TRANSFORMATION

BECAUSE OF THEIR SINS, REBELLION, AND UNRIGHTEOUSNESS, ISRAEL STOPPED BEING A NATION
THEIR PROMISED LAND HAD BECOME DESOLATE, THEIR PEOPLE HAD SCATTERED AND ALL THE NATIONS AROUND THEM WOULD LAUGH AT THEM
THEIR TIME OF VICTORY AND PRIME LIFE HAD COME AND GONE
BUT GOD WASN’T DONE
TELL YOUR NEIGHBOR, GOD’S NOT DONE
IT DOESN’T MATTER WHERE YOU ARE RIGHT NOW, GOD IS NOT DONE WITH YOUR LIFE
YOU MAY FEEL LIKE GIVING UP
YOU MAY FEEL LIKE THEIR IS NO HOPE
YOU MAY FEEL LIKE YOU LOST THE PROMISE
BUT THE LORD TOLD ME TO TELL YOU TODAY THAT HE IS NOT DONE
HE WILL MAKE AN EVERLASTING COVENANT WITH YOU
A COVENANT THAT WILL NEVER END
AS A MATTER OF FACT HE HAS ALREADY FULFILLED HIS PORTION OF THE CONTRACT WHEN HE DIED AND ROSE FROM THE GRAVE
HE IS NOT DONE
YOUR SEED SHALL BE KNOWN AMONG THE GENTILES
THAT MEANS THAT GOD IS GOING TO DO SUCH A WORK IN YOUR LIFE THAT EVERYONE WILL HEAR ABOUT WHAT HE HAS DONE
AND INSTEAD OF PEOPLE LAUGHING AT YOU AND GOSSIPING ABOUT YOU AND TALKING ABOUT YOU
THEY WILL ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU BELONG TO GOD
THAT GOD HAS DONE SUCH A WORK IN YOUR LIFE THAT PEOPLE WILL BE UNABLE TO FIND FAULT WITHIN YOU
AND THEY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO DENY THAT YOU ARE BLESSED
SAY, I AM BLESSED
Deuteronomy 28:2–12 KJV 1900
And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God. Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field. Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep. Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store. Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out. The Lord shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways. The Lord shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee. The Lord shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the Lord thy God, and walk in his ways. And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the Lord; and they shall be afraid of thee. And the Lord shall make thee plenteous in goods, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy ground, in the land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers to give thee. The Lord shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.
YOU WILL BE SO BLESSED BECAUSE GOD IS NOT DONE THAT YOU WILL GREATLY REJOICE
JUST LIKE PAUL SAID REJOICE IN THE LORD ALWAYS AND AGAIN I SAY REJOICE
YOU WILL BE JOYFUL IN YOUR GOD
YOU THOUGHT THAT THERE WAS NO HOPE
YOU THOUGHT THAT YOU WERE DEFEATED, BUT THE BIBLE SAYS THAT
HE HAS CLOTHED YOU WITH THE GARMENTS OF SALVATION
WHAT YOU COULDN’T DO FOR YOURSELF, GOD IS GOING TO DO FOR YOU
YOU DIDN’T HAVE THE GARMENTS, THE ROBE, THE ORNAMENTS, THE JEWELS
BUT GOD IS GOING TO GIVE THEM TO YOU
YOU MAY HAVE GIVEN UP ON GOD BUT HE HAS NOT GIVEN UP ON YOU
YOU WON’T BE EMPTY ANY LONGER
YOU WON’T BE WITHOUT
GOD IS GOING TO MAKE YOU PRODUCE
PRODUCE THE PROMISES, PROVISIONS, PROSPERITY, PORTIONS, RESTORATION, RECONCILIATION, PROMISE
YOU WILL NOT BE BARREN ANYMORE BUT IT IS TIME TO PRODUCE THE PRAYER, WORSHIP, FAITH, FIGHT, PRAISE
EVERYTHING THAT HEAVEN HAS INVESTED INTO YOU WHEN YOU WERE CREATED IS GOING TO SPRING FORTH
