Pastor Kong’s Sermon 11, June, 2016 The Exceeding Greatness of His Power

Ephesians 1:3
God has blessed us with every spiritual blessing.
It is already done. We no longer chase after the blessing.
Blessing = empowered to succeed.
We are cursed-proof. Those who curse us shall be cursed themselves.
We can succeed in life without continuous toil.
We don’t sacrifice health or family or consecration for earning a living.

Proverb 10:22
The blessing of the LORD comes without toil.
When the provisions in our lives are met, we can focus on our life assignment.

The blessing is only found in Christ.
All we have to do is to believe in Christ. Everything we need is given
1 Cor 3:21-23
It does not matter if we feel it or don’t. All the blessings are available to us through the finished work of Christ.
To receive this blessing, we must believe we already have it.
We must expect this blessing to manifest in our lives.

Gal 3:8-9
The Gospel was preached to Abraham. It was awesome news.

The strongest currency is faith. It is currency of the kingdom of God.
There was a woman with the issue of blood. She poured all her currency of faith onto Lord Jesus.
She then received her healing.

To receive miracle, we need to believe and expect it.
Faith comes by revelation. The more we read the Bible, the more revelation we receive.

Ephesians 1:15-18
Paul prayed that we have the spirit of revelation: we can do things we think we cannot do.
God wants our eyes of our understanding flooded with light.
We no longer need Lord Jesus to do the work of healing; By His stripes we were already healed.

1. That you may know what is the hope of His calling

We need to realize the uniqueness of our assignment.
Even before He created the world, He had already chosen us.
God has a mission so unique to each Christian.
We gotta walk in that assignment.

The kingdom of this world is buying and selling.
The kingdom of God is faith and obedience.

If we think God is Supplier of our needs, we worship God.
If we think company is supplier of our needs, we worship company.
The devil wants to be so busy with work, we no longer have time to attend church service and cg meeting.
However, God is the One supplying our needs. He will bless us even if we need to leave the company.

2. What are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints

As children of God, we are not slaves. We have inheritance from God.
The Bible is the Bill of Rights which belong to us.
Psalm 103:2-5
Here are our rights: God forgives us, heals us, redeems us, crowns us and satisfies us good things.

3. The exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe

How great is this power?
Eph 1:19-20
According to the exact degree and measure which He worked in Christ.
It does not matter what we feel or see. The power in us is the same as the power in Christ.
What is that power?
It is the same power which resurrected Lord Jesus from the dead.
The power of resurrection is great. Even hell cannot swallow it.

What is death? Failure.
Something dies because something fails to work.
Some die because of heart failure.
Some suffer bankrupt = financial failure. Some suffer divorce = marriage failure.

We are often afraid of failure.
Fear of failure often tries to paralyze us.
However, with the power of resurrection, failure cannot hold us down.
There is no problem or temptation we cannot overcome.

Eph 1:20-22
This resurrection power, although we cannot see, has lifted us up in the heavenly places.
Every demonic power is under our feet.
Greater is He who is in us than the devil who is the world.

We must expect greater and greater miracles.
Limbs grow, eye balls will form. It is not us doing work; the Heavenly Father does.
We just need to believe.
Unless we have the power of God flowing in us, we will be useless.
We may see His vision for us. However, only His power enables us to achieve the vision.

In Jesus’ name we must pray for revelation.
According to Watchman Nee, in split second of our spiritual reborn, God gives us gifts.
We will spend the next 50-60 years unpack the gifts.
How is our spirituality today? If we are the same as when we accepted Christ, then we are still babies in God.

Let’s believe God. All the blessing pertaining life and godliness have been given to us.
