Receive By Grace Through Faith By Joseph Prince

Another powerful message from Joseph Prince.

Stop the wrong belief that you need to do something good for God to deserve His blessings.

You alone is enough to receive all that. Because Jesus has paid the price for your healing,blessings and protection, all you gotta do is receive it BOLDLY in faith !

How cool is that?

Easy as counting 1-2-2, right?

Blessed Monday everyone!

Receive By Grace Through Faith
By Joseph Prince

Galatians 3:5
5 Therefore He who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you, does He do it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?...

Imagine that you are at a healing service. An alcoholic walks into the church reeking of alcohol. He sits behind the pianist, a nice elderly lady who has been serving in the church for 50 years. Both of them are suffering from rheumatoid arthritis. The healing power of God is present. In an instant, the alcoholic, who has never been in church before, gets healed. The pianist does not.

Most people, on hearing stories like this, would get upset and confused. They might ask, “Shouldn’t God heal this nice, old lady who has been serving Him faithfully all these years, and not that debauched drunkard?” You see, many people still believe that God heals only the deserving.

But that is not how God works. God looks at faith, not works. His power is made manifest in those who trust His goodness instead of their good behavior. So if we go back to the above example, God wants to heal both the alcoholic and the nice elderly pianist. All they need to do is to receive by grace, or unmerited favor, through faith.

You see, we cannot earn the blessings of God. We receive them by believing God’s love and grace toward us. If we receive the greatest blessing — salvation — by simply believing that Jesus did it all for us and not by working for it, what makes us think that the other lesser blessings can be obtained by our works?

So if my daughter Jessica falls sick, I don’t go to the Father and say, “Father, heal my daughter because I am Pastor Joseph Prince and I preach healing to the people.” No, I go to Him by the blood of Jesus and say, “Father, I thank You that 2,000 years ago, Jesus bore Jessica’s sickness in His body. On that basis alone and by Your grace, I pronounce her healed in Jesus’ name.”

When you simply believe that you receive your blessings based on Jesus’ finished work and by His grace alone, you will receive your blessings!

God Says ‘I Will’ In The New Covenant by Joseph Prince

God Says ‘I Will’ In The New Covenant by Joseph Prince

Hebrews 8:10,12
10 ... I will put My laws in their mind... I will be their God... 12... I will be merciful to their unrighteousness... their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.”

You may be feeling stressed at work today because your boss just gave you a list of things to do. Maybe he told you, “You have to type this letter. You have to meet this client. You have to write this report. You have to...”

Wouldn’t it be nice if your boss had, instead, said, “I will type this letter for you. I will meet this client for you. I will write this report for you. I will...”?

Well, your boss may not be that gracious, but your Father in heaven is! When He found fault with the old covenant and established the new covenant (Hebrews 8:7–8) in His Son’s blood, His “Thou shalls” became “I wills”.

You see, under the old covenant, the focus is on you — Thou shall not... Thou shall not... Thou shall not... It is all about your performance, your obedience, your works. But under the new covenant, God says, “I will put My laws in their mind... I will be their God... I will be merciful to their unrighteousness... their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.” It is no longer you working for God, but God working for you, in you, through you!

“Isn’t there something for me to do?” you may ask.

My friend, the only thing for you to do is to believe God’s “I wills”. The more you believe His “I wills” or promises, the more you will see His heart for you and the more your faith will grow.

It is foolish for me to just tell you, “Come on, man, have faith!” You will still find it hard to have faith because I am not giving you anything to build faith in you. But if I were to tell you all about what God says He will do for you, faith will arise in your heart. Faith is a response to knowing what God says He will do for you.

So the best thing you can “do” under the new covenant is to not focus on what you must do for God, but what God says He will do for you!

Your Sins Are Not Being Recorded by Joseph Prince

Don't believe in wrong teachings that God is constantly watching you

and keeping a record of your wrongs!

I say, if someone preaches that to you.

Tell him he's got a pathetic god!

You see, our God, Abba , Father is constantly watching over us

to protect us from the devils,

to bless us.

to support and comfort us in many ways He can.

That is why we have an awesome God!

Good morning Beloveds!

God loves you so. So stick with Him no matter what ok?

Be blessed in today's devotional from Joseph Prince.

You will love this!

Your Sins Are Not Being Recorded by Joseph Prince

Hebrews 8:12
12For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.”

I once read a comic book which showed how a man lusted after a woman, then died of a heart attack and went to heaven. In heaven, he saw a big screen showing everyone present a recording of all the sins which he had committed while on earth, including the last one. How embarrassing!

Don’t worry, that is not going to happen to you in heaven. There is no big screen with front-row and circle seats for everyone to sit and watch your past sins. There is no video recorder in heaven recording your sins right now. Because your lifetime of sins has already been punished in the body of Jesus, God declares to you, “Your sins and lawless deeds, I will by no means ever remember!”

This is true even for the Old Testament heroes of faith such as Abraham, Moses and David. If you read Hebrews 11, which was written after the cross of Jesus, you will notice that there is no record of their sins or failures. Yet, their life stories tell us that they were far from perfect.

Abraham lied twice about his wife Sarah. He told Pharaoh, and later, King Abimelech, that she was his sister to protect his own life. Moses killed an Egyptian who was beating a Hebrew, and hid the body in the sand. David committed adultery with Bathsheba and later arranged for her husband to be killed in battle. Yet, their sins were not recorded in Hebrews 11, only their deeds done in faith!

God is showing you that He does not record your sins or failures today. Instead, He records your faith confessions and deeds done in response to what His Son has done for you. Every time you sin, every time you waver in your faith, God does not record it. But every time you believe Him and respond in faith, He records it! That should not make you want to sin more. It should free you to love God more!

So don’t be conscious of your failures. If God Himself does not remember them, who are you to remember them? Be conscious instead of your righteousness in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:21), a

Jesus Changes Me

If it's easy for anyone to send negative vibes, or curse...

Then it's also easy for someone to bless anyone.

Got my point?

You have a always have a choice.

It's either you choose to spread the good vibes or spread the bad vibes.

Me? Used to be a bearer of both. Cuz I always depended on my feelings and from
what I always see from the others.

But as time goes by, I can say , I am now matured spiritually.

Jesus has totally changed me ...from mindset , to my random thoughts. to evaluating and going through with my feelings.

Jesus had me. And it's awesome how He keeps changing me everyday.

I know He is doing this on me ALL for His glory!

Thank You Jesus.

If there's anything in your mind and heart that you feel not comfortable with,

Just ask Jesus to take it out...and He will be glad to do that for you.

Because you are His child and you are precious to Him and He wants you to become a blessing to someone too.

Just try talking it out to Him.

He loves it.

Do it now.:)

Jesus Is Interested In Your Success by Joseph Prince

Let the Lord be magnified, who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.
Psalm 35:27
Jesus Is Interested In Your Success by Joseph Prince
Jesus delights in blessing you. It is His good pleasure to see you blessed in every area of your life. Now, don’t put a limit on His blessings in your life. The blessings of the Lord are not (as some may erroneously believe) just seen in material things. Jesus is infinitely interested in your total well-being. He is interested in your family, career, fulfillment in life, marriage, ministry, and boy, does the list go on!

When it comes to your desires, hopes and dreams, there is no detail that is too minuscule, minute or insignificant for Jesus. Trust me, if it matters to you, it matters to Him! Even if you go to Him in prayer to remove that small pimple on your nose, He is not going to look at you and reply mockingly, “Hey buddy, don’t you know that I’ve got a whole universe to run? Come to Me when you have a bigger prayer request.”

No way! A thousand times no! Jesus will never ridicule or deride your concerns as petty. He is never dismissive or condescending. If it bothers you, it “bothers” Him, and He wants to fix it because He is interested in your success and total well-being!

Jesus Is My Place of Rest

I got lost so many times.

I thought I was already in the right place. But depression , emptiness , sadness still eluded me deep inside.

My soul was longing for more.

Something infinite.

Something real.

Something divine.

Then , I realised God has been so good to me. Everytime He saw me in that state , He kept pulling me back to Him.

And I was left astounded.

Because, the place that He kept showing as to where I should be,
is just right where my heart was.

The presence...

Who's presence?

It's Jesus.

Jesus is my infinite space. My divine purpose. My joy. And my peace.

Now, questions have been answered.

Depression and sadness are gone like the wind.

It's amazing!

Jesus has led me to Psalm 23...

His complete rest.

Saving You Is Jesus’ Job Description by Joseph Prince

And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.
Matthew 1:21

Saving You Is Jesus’ Job Description by Joseph Prince

The name “Jesus” is Yeshua in Hebrew, which means “salvation”. That’s why Jesus is known as our Savior. What a beautiful name!

Every time you call on the name of Jesus, the name that is above every other name, you are calling on Jesus (who is God Himself) to save you. Saving you is Jesus’ job description! Whatever the challenge or circumstance, whatever the crisis you are in—physical, financial or emotional—you can call on the name of Jesus and Almighty God Himself will save you!

What is David Beckham famous for? Soccer! (He’s also famous for product endorsements!) What is Jesus famous for? Saving you!

Beloved, what do you need saving from today? See Him in your situation, rescuing, protecting and providing for you!
