“Rejoicing in what the Lord has done”
After making men God rested on the seventh day. God said spent time with me and rest with me.
After this, the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them on ahead of him two by two into every town and place where he himself was about to go. Luke 10:1 (NET)
17 Then the seventy-two returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name!” 18 So he said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. 19 Look, I have given you authority to tread on snakes and scorpions and on the full force of the enemy, and nothing will hurt you. Luke 10:17-19 (NET) Nevertheless, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names stand written in heaven.”
Luke 10:20 (NET) Jesus want us to rejoice
1 In the beginning, was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was fully God.
2 The Word was with God in the beginning. John 1:1-2 (NET) Don’t separate God and word. God speaks to us. Pharisees knew the Bible but did not know god
Now we have not received the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things that are freely given to us by God. 1 Cor 2:12 (NET) Holy spirit reveals what God has given us.
We need to understand God has power. Come to a place where I cannot do anything with God.
10 So Pilate said, “Do you refuse to speak to me? Don’t you know I have the authority to release you and to crucify you?” 11 Jesus replied, “You would have no authority over me at all unless it was given to you from above. Therefore, the one who handed me over to you is guilty of a greater sin.” John 19:10-11 (NET) Only God has authority. Everything works for my Good.
Jesus wants us to live in a personal relationship with God.
You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that remains so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he will give you. John 15:16 (NET) God has chosen us and appointed us. The bridegroom is telling the bride I will show the wonderful things come with me. The same way Jesus wants to show us.
And all these things are from God who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and who has given us the ministry of reconciliation. 2 Cor 5:18 (NET)
He has justified and clean us. It made us worthy. We have not done it; it is Jesus Christ who has done for us.
He is the reason you have a relationship with Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification and redemption,
1 Cor 1:30 (NET) Christ is my all in all
16 ” This is the covenant that I will establish with them after those days, says the Lord. I will put my laws on their hearts and I will inscribe them on their minds,” 17 then he says, ” Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no longer.” Heb 10:16-17 (NET)
Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, Phil 3:8 (KJV)
I need to know Jesus More and more I need to ask the Holy Spirit to know Jesus more and More.
Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and blessing.
Rev 5:12 (KJV)
First Love: Jesus Christ
Life was full of discouragement. Jesus changed my life. If I have gratitude for that love of Jesus, it will reflect in my life. I need to repent and come back.
But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and will cause you to remember everything I said to you. John 14:26 (NET) Advocate who will plead for the cause.
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matt 11:28 (NET) Jesus say come to me. The holy spirit will guide us. Every day we see new Glory.
Doing his will: Thank God for life. God has control over it
About sanctification. To do Father will- For I have come down from heaven not to do my own will but the will of the one who sent me. John 6:38 (NET) flesh wants to my own will do not wants to suffer. God crucified my old flesh like Israel killed the giants every day need to kill the desires of the flesh. I want to do your will in every situation Help me to kill my flesh.
Understand first love.
And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God. Acts 9:20 (KJV) The change of Saul to Paul. The start was good as we understand the first love.
1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, 2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. Heb 12:1-2 (KJV)
I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Phil 3:14 (KJV)
Lucifer thought of being the place of God. The pride that came in his mind it can also come in us.
The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, Eph 1:18 (KJV)
And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,
Eph 1:19 (KJV) Our mind eyes to understand God’s Power.
Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down and cast into the fire. Matt 7:19 (KJV) That tree does not bear good is cast in the fire.
6 He spoke also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. 7 Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbered it the ground? 8 And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it: 9 And if it bears fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down. Luke 13:6-9 (KJV) Jesus has compassion on us. Because of Jesus, we produce Good fruit.
