5 Sayings Of Jesus

Jesus The Christ

Isaiah 61:1–2 NKJV
1 “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, Because the Lord has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound; 2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn,
Confession of Faith
I am not moved by what I see or by what I feel. I am moved by what I believe. I believe the WORD of God! The victory is mine! I have it now! I can see it through the eyes of my faith!

5 Sayings Of Jesus

1. Ask , Seek & Knock

Luke 11:9–10 NKJV
9 “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.
Luke 11:9–10 NLT
9 “And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.
Jesus teaches us to pray -prayers is to continue asking for what you needs. ⇒ Ask, and it shall be given you.
But if asking does not receive it, then... ⇒ seek, and ye shall find.
But if seeking does not receive it, then... ⇒
knock, and the door will be open to you.
The point is: we must mean what we pray, and the way we show God our sincerity is by continuing to ask for what we need.
b. The verbs ask, seek, and knock are all continuous action. We are to keep on asking and seeking and knocking, ever beseeching God to hear us.
The answer is assured. God will hear and answer the person who perseveres and endures in prayer. The believer always receives the need desired

2. It’s Possible!

Matthew 19:26 NKJV
26 But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Talking about salvation - a rich young ruler
There is one hope for man—God.
1. Man must turn away from following non believers .
No man can save a rich man nor any other man for that matter.
Luke 1:37 NKJV
37 For with God nothing will be impossible.”

3. Listen to His Voice

John 10:27–30 NLT
27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one can snatch them away from me, 29 for my Father has given them to me, and he is more powerful than anyone else. No one can snatch them from the Father’s hand. 30 The Father and I are one.”
The sheep of the Shepherd believe in the Shepherd. Others may not, but the sheep do. This is what Jesus was saying.
Sheep are receptive to the voice of the Shepherd. They know His voice and respond to it. When He calls them, they come and do what He says. Sheep are known by the Shepherd, and this knowledge leads them to trust Him explicitly.
The Shepherd responds to the sheep and to their faith and trust in Him. He cares for them deeply, leading and looking after them. He even knows them individually, calling them by name
John 10:2–3 NLT
2 But the one who enters through the gate is the shepherd of the sheep. 3 The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep recognize his voice and come to him. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.

4. We must be Born Again

John 3:3 NLT
3 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God.”
The new birth is a necessity, an imperative. Two facts show this: 1. The strong assertion, "Except a man be born again." The word "again" The point is this. A man must be "born again." He must be... • born completely and fully, a complete and full change. • born all over again, in the sense of a second time. • born from above, from God.

5. He has overcome the world

John 16:33 NKJV
33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
The world can give only trials and tribulation. No matter who the person is, the trials and tribulations come. That is the way of the world, and no man can avoid it.
The peace of Jesus Christ—the peace that is in Him—is lasting. It is an overcoming peace, a peace that overcomes the trials and tribulations of the world, no matter what they are, even the terrible trials of sin and death. But note, the overcoming peace... • is only in Jesus. • is only in His Word, in the things which He spoke.
