MIRACLES AND BLESSINGS PT 3

Eph 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,
Norley Tran – Everything heaven itself enjoys!

OBEDIENCE DOESN’T EARN BLESSINGS IT RELEASES THEM.
DISOBEDIENCE WILL CUT YOU OFF FROM THE BLESSINGS.

“I’M SUPPOSED TO BE BLESSED!
Ps 34:8 “O Taste and see that the Lord is good. Blessed is the man that trusts in Him.”

1Cor. 10:1 For I do not want you to be unaware, brethren, that our fathers were all under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; 2 And all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea; 3 And all ate the same spiritual food;
4 And all drank the same spiritual drink, for they were drinking from a spiritual rock which followed them; and the rock was Christ. 5 Nevertheless, with most of them God was not well-pleased; For they were laid low in the wilderness. 6 Now these things happened as examples for us, that we should not crave evil things, as they also craved.

7 And do not be idolaters, as some of them were; as it is written, (EX 32:6) “The people sat down to eat and drink, and stood up to play.”
8 Nor let us act immorally, as some of them did, and twenty-three thousand fell in one day.

9 Nor let us try the lord, as some of them did, and were destroyed by the serpents. (numbers 21)

10 Nor grumble, as some of them did, and were destroyed by the destroyer.

THE NEW TESTAMENT REVEALS WHO DESTROYED THEM.

WHEN YOU STOP LISTENING TO GOD AND CONTINUE IN A WRONG ATTITUDE YOU’RE OPENING THE DOOR TO DESTRUCTION.

DISOBEDIENCE OPENS THE DOOR TO DESTRUCTION.

11 Now these things happened to them as an example, and they were written for our instruction, upon whom the ends of the ages have come.

WE SHOULD UNDERSTAND MORE ABOUT THE ENEMY’S TACTICS THAN ANY OTHER GENERATION.

THE ROAD TO DESTRUCTION IS WIDE – THE WAY TO LIFE IS NARROW.

12 Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.

13 No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, that you may be able to endure it.

ALL THESE BLESSINGS OF DEUT 28 HINGE ON VS 2
2 “And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you will obey the Lord your God.

IF YOU OBEY YOU’RE BLESSED, IF YOU DON’T YOU’RE CURSED

EXODUS 15:26 And he said, “If you will give earnest heed to the voice of the Lord your God, and do what is right in his sight, and give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put (not allow) none of the diseases on you which I have put (allowed) on the Egyptians; For I, the Lord, am your Healer (JEHOVAH RAPHA).”

“The Character & Names of God 2”

ASPECT MEANS; A PART OF… OR FEATURE OF SOMETHING;
A SPECIFIC WAY, IN WHICH SOMETHING CAN BE CONSIDERED.

CHARACTER & NATURE OF GOD – (NAMES OF GOD) WHAT KIND OF GOD DO WE HAVE?

GOD HAS REVEALED HIMSELF TO US BY DIFFERENT NAMES

EL SHADDI… “THE BREASTED ONE”
THE GOD OF MORE THAN ENOUGH – THE GOD OF AN ABUNDANT SUPPLY!

2. JEHOVAH JIREH – OUR PROVIDER – JIREH MEANS; THE ONE WHO SEES

GENESIS 22:14 WHERE ABRAHAM WAS ASKED OF THE LORD TO TAKE ISAAC AND OFFER HIM AS A SACRIFICE

FAITH OPERATES IN BOTH THE FUTURE AND PRESENT TENSES
MARK 11:24

“GOD WILL PROVIDE,” IS A FAITH STATEMENT…

THE WORD PROVISION – 2 WORDS – PRO & VISION
PRO MEANS – BEFORE / VISION MEANS – TO SEE

GOD IS NEVER SUPRIZED BY ANY OF YOUR NEEDS…

DEVELOP YOUR FAITH NOW WHERE YOU ARE… DON’T LOOK AT SOMEONE ELSE OR COMPARE

HAVING FAITH IS MORE PRECIOUS THAN MONEY – (CURRENCY OF HEAVEN)

NEVER TELL GOD WHO TO USE… YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO BELIEVE FOR YOUR NEED TO BE MEET BUT NOT TELL GOD WHO TO USE

HOW DOES GOD LIVE?
Rev. 21:18 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass. 19 And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; 20 The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst. 21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.

“Obedience and blessings”

Eph 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,

MIRACLES CAN GET PEOPLE TO GOD… DAILY BLESSINGS PULL US THROUGH.

(Ps 68:19 Daily loads us w benefits, God of our salvation)

BLESSINGS COME TO THE OBEDIENT

Ezk 34:26 I will make them and the places around My hill a blessing. And I will cause showers to come down in their season; they will be showers of blessing. (Amp Divine favor)

THE PRIESTLY BLESSINGS
Numb 6:24 “The Lord bless you and keep you; 25 The Lord make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; 26 The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.”

DISOBEDIENCE WILL CUT YOU OFF FROM THE BLESSINGS.

Deut 27 & 28… Ebal and Gerizim

PLACES WHERE GOD SAY’S WE CAN REVERSE A CURSE
Matt 5:44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,

Rom 12:14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.

1 Cor 4:12 And we labor, working with our own hands. Being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we endure; (Ex. Driving)

IN THE GARDEN GOD BLESSED ADAM AND EVE… IT MEANS “EMPOWER TO PROSPER”

GOD BLESSED THE SABATH
Gen 2:3 Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.

PEOPLE WHO ARE FAITHFUL TO GO TO CHURCH AND ENTER THE REST ARE BLESSED.

Gen 25:11 It came about after the death of Abraham, that God blessed his son Isaac

Gen 26:12 Now Isaac sowed in that land and reaped in the same year a hundredfold. And the Lord blessed him,

COMPLAINING WILL PUT YOU ON EBAL INSTEAD OF GERIZIM..

WE SEE BLESSINGS COME DOWN ON THE GRANDCHILDREN
Gen 35:9 Then God appeared to Jacob again when he came from Paddan-aram, and He blessed him.

Eph 1:3 *In Him… OUR BLESSINGS START WITH OUR WALK WITH HIM.

BECAUSE YOU ARE BLESSED THE BLESSINGS FLOW AROUND YOU TO OTHERS
Gen 39:5 It came about that from the time he made him overseer in his house and over all that he owned, the Lord blessed the Egyptian’s house on account of Joseph; thus the Lord’s blessing was upon all that he owned, in the house and in the field.

CONCERNING ISRAEL
Deut 7:14 You shall be blessed above all peoples; there will be no male or female barren among you or among your cattle.

WE STAY IN THE PLACE OF AUTHORITY AND BLESSING BY STAYING OBEDIENT TO GOD.
Deut 12:7 There also you and your households shall eat before the Lord your God, and rejoice in all your undertakings in which the Lord your God has blessed you.

IF YOU’RE BARKING AND COMPLAINING ALL THE TIME YOU ARE NOT LIVING IN GERIZIM

2 Sam 6:12 Now it was told King David, saying, “The Lord has blessed the house of Obed-edom and all that belongs to him, on account of the ark of God.”

ONE THING BRINGS THE BLESSING OF GOD ON YOUR HOUSE AND THAT’S THE PRESENCE OF GOD.

THE BLESSINGS IN THE N.T. ARE CALLED THE “BE ATTITUDES”

BLESSINGS COME BECAUSE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT ATTITUDE…

HOW TO BE BLESSED…
Psalm 1:1, Psalm 2:12, Psalm 32:1-2, Psalm 94:12, Psalm119:2,
Matt 13:16, James 1:12, James 1:25, Rev 14:13

MIRACLES AND BLESSINGS PT 1

“Jumpstart your blessings”

Eph 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,

Norley Tran – Everything heaven itself enjoys!

GOD PREDISTINED US TO BE BLESSED!

4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love 5 He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, 6 to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved.

GOD IS A GOOD OF MIRACLES BUT HE IS ALSO A GOD OF BLESSINGS

YOU STAY IN THE SUPERNATURAL BY STAYING IN FAITH.

GOD LOVES TO DO THE MIRACULOUS FOR HIS PEOPLE BUT A MIRACLE IS NEVER THE ULTIMATE WITH GOD.

Ex. GOD DELIEVERING ISRAEL
THE MIRACULOUS WAS THE JUMP START TO GET THEM INTO THE PROMISE LAND

JUMPSTARTS HELP US GET INTO WHERE GOD WANTS US.

Ex. HANNAH… GOD GAVE HER A CHILD – IT WAS A MIRACLE.

Ex. GOD TOLD ABRAHAM, “I WILL BLESS YOU AND BLESS YOUR SEED”

MIRACLES USUALLY COME BY ONES, BLESSINGS CAN’T BE SINGLE

ISAAC ENTERED RIGHT INTO THE BLESSING OF HIS FATHER. (NOT MIRACLE)

YOU CAN’T PASS ON THE MIRACLES BUT YOU CAN PASS ON BLESSINGS

JACOB – ASKED FOR A BLESSING NOT A MIRACLE!

HE WILL ALWAYS MEET YOU AT THE POINT OF YOUR NEED!
