Loaded with Blessing
Sunday Sermon by Pastor Rajesh Mathew, 22 Jan, 2023
Jesus is real. He is here in this Place.
- The greatest blessing, we have is that the Holy Spirit allows our spirits to be open to recognise and experience the Presence of God. Don’t come with a religious attitude just to listen to a sermon and go. If you truly experience and connect with the Presence of God, you will leave this place catching the Blessing from Him.
- Wherever people experienced the Presence of the Lord, there was a revival and a fresh move of God. Either they cried out to HIM, or touched Him or just desire to touch Him. Nobody sat still after experiencing GOD’s presence.
- Wherever Jesus is, there are miracles, healing and deliverances and blessings. I will experience the blessings of Jesus in my life! I need the presence of Jesus in my Life. I don’t want anything else!
The Lord is opening some doors for people here. God is opening ways in which you have never walked before. New experiences for some of you. A week of Open door of blessing.
Galatians 3:13-14 (MSG)- Christ redeemed us from that self-defeating, cursed life by absorbing it completely into himself. Do you remember the Scripture that says, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”? That is what happened when Jesus was nailed to the cross: He became a curse, and at the same time dissolved the curse.
- Only when we are under a curse, we are self-destroying. But Our cup will overflow. You won't self-defeat yourself because Christ took your curse on the Cross. God desires to bless you. You are going to walk in the blessings of God that which He promised Abraham. God wants to keep you the blessing of God.
Christ redeemed us from the self-defeating curse.
- Cursed is everyone who hangs on the tree- Do you remember this scripture?
Verses 14- And now, because of that, the air is cleared and we can see that Abraham’s blessing is present and available for non-Jews, too. We are all able to receive God’s life, his Spirit, in and with us by believing—just the way Abraham received it.
God has cleared the air to make you walk in the blessing. The air is cleared over me because of what Christ has done!
John 10:10- thief is only there to steal and kill and destroy. I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of.
- There is real life and eternal life too. This scripture is self-explanatory. Both in the real life and in eternal life, God gave Himself for you. The life of God is real here on earth.
A more and better life than we ever dreamed of! Jesus came to give you exactly this- a more abundant life!
- How many of you have dreams for your life? God desires to give you a better life, more than what you dream!
God will download His dreams and His plans into your systems. The Holy Spirit will show you better dreams and a better vision for your life.
- We keep praying for our dreams. Today tell Him-- His better dreams to come to pass in your life. Set aside your dreams and go after His dreams and ask Him to deposit His dreams into your life. • In every realm of your life. Family, business, relationships, career, in every area! • God will move you into His overflowing blessings. When you ask Him to release His greater and better plans and Dreams for you
- Lay down your dreams and be ready to catch His dreams and His plans for your life.
You have to grow up thinking that your life in Christ will be much better than your life without Christ.
The first thing that Adam heard after being created was BLESSING
- This year you need to walk in a BLESSING MINDSET. Every day I will be blessed by the Lord should be your daily awareness.
- IN the Numbers we see the Lord telling the priests that you need to bless your people EVERYDAY! IN the New Testament if you are washed by the Blood of Jesus, you are a royal priesthood. In the New Testament you are the kings and royal priesthood. You speak over your life. Your children.
Somebody told me about Anil Kapoor. He looks at the mirror everyday an says “you good-looking you!”. He blesses himself every day. He is following a biblical principle.
- We look at the mirror and say I am growing old, I can see wrinkles under my eyes. • But you need to know that life and death are at the tip of your tongue. Start blessing yourself, your children, you family with your mouth. God has blessed me. I am blessed in Christ. The work of my hands are blessed. Every day before you open your shop, bless the Lord.
Genesis 24:1- Abraham was now an old man. God had blessed Abraham in every way.
- In all ways God blessed Him. In every way Abraham was blessed. Not just spiritually but mentally, emotionally, materially financially, in relationships, in ministry, in every way God wants to bless us like He blessed Abraham
Contemporary English version- The Lord had made Abraham rich and he was successful in everything he did.
- I want to just keep sharing scriptures today. Let that Word enter. It is not enough to just clap your hands and go, let the Word enlighten inside of you. Don’t forget what was spoken. Let the Word work inside of you. Do not let the devil take out of you that Word.
- I am blessed in everything, whether I grow kappa, or milk a cow or grow hens, plant church, or minister, no matter what I do, God’s blessing will follow me!
- You have to allow God to bless you. You have to allow the blessing to work in your life. 1) Blessing means that the devil can never defeat you.
- No Problem or crisis can stop you. Because the blessing of God is operating in your life. No matter what people have done (Blackmagic) against you, nobody can stop you or pull you back. • Even if the ship that you are in is shipwrecked and everything falls apart, God will open up another way for you to reach Rome and glorify God.
No devil will be able to stop you.
Noah's Webster Dictionary of 1828 which explains the different words in the Bible ate explained scripturally but in a simple way Good to download this on your phone.
Meaning of blessing according to the Webster Dictionary
- All this has been pronounced upon you. Pronounced means to invoke or to conferred. It is like somebody was conferred a doctorate.
Here happiness, prosperity, favour and success has been presently and permanently conferred upon you.
Forever that blessing in Christ Jesus is upon you. All your life, this blessing will work upon you. Special privileges, favour, prosperity will follow you.
- Once you have a degree in your hand, it is upon your life all your life.
You have to make this blessing work for you. That is faith.
- Blessing has already been kept for you. You don’t beg God for your blessing, if you are in Christ that is not the kind of prayer you should be praying. Instead, you should be thanking God for the Blessing you have in Christ.
Keep thanking by faith and that way you are activating your blessing.
2) Blessing means- You are greater than your situation. You are superior to your circumstances.
- Some people are always full of complaining. You are not above it. The devil shows you things and you believe him. That is a sign that you have not activated your blessing. Don’t be tired of your circumstances. You see some pastor always smiling. Doesn't mean that they don't have problems. It is only that they are activating their faith always and the chains keep breaking and they are superior to their situations or problems. Paul and Silas were in prison but they decided to thank God. There the Power of God came down.
With Thanksgiving, grateful heart and worship, activate the blessing of God. Psalms 3:8- Real help comes from God. Your blessing clothes your people!
- Thy blessing is upon thy people. Every morning you need to say I am clothed with the Blessing of God.
KJV- Thy blessing is upon thy people. selah
- Think about this. Selah means- “Meditate on it, read about it, remember it”. We forget that God has already kept a blessing upon you. Should you fast and pray for 21 days? You only need to recognise that the blessing has been placed upon you. then you will walk in health and freedom.
- Blessing is not somewhere out. It has been placed upon you through the Cross. You need to know that.
1 Chronicles 17:27 (MSG)- As if that weren’t enough, you’ve blessed my family so that it will continue in your presence always. Because you have blessed it, God, it’s really blessed—blessed for good!
- When God blesses you, you will want to come into the House of the Lord. And be useful for God. When the devil blesses you, you will be tempted to bow before him and leave God. • And blessed for good. ‘Eternal blessing’. When God releases a blessing, it is not for a few years. It is forever. When God blesses you, it won’t stop you from relating to God and staying under God’s presence. Satan is eternally defeated.
You are under the blessing of God. You are superior to every challenge that comes your way because of the Blessing of God.
Psalm 41:11- Meanwhile, I’m sure you’re on my side— no victory shouts yet from the enemy camp! You know me inside and out, you hold me together, you never fail to stand me tall in your presence so I can look you in the eye.
- NO victory shouts in the camp of the enemy. There are shouts of joy in the tents of the righteous.
You will rise above everything that the enemy throws at you.
- Abraham went against 4 kings and kingdoms. He prevailed. Why? Because the blessing was upon him.
- You will stand superior over everything that the enemy throws at you because On the Cross, the Lord won the victory for you and me.
You activate this blessing every day through a thankful heart.
3) Blessing is daily
Psalms 68:19-19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.
- Daily God loads you with blessing. Selah means think about it.
Every day is a blessing day.
- Blessings and favour get activated only when you are conscious and you recognize this. If you are conscious that God is the One who has blessed you with kids and health, grace to know him, the food you eat etc, the blessing will come upon you further and further again.
Something good will come to you every day from God.
Loaded means heaped. Loading you heaping up everyday with blessing.
Prophetic: This year God is going bless some people with land at low prices. After you buy it the value will increase exponentially! It will become a prime property.
- The word benefit means- Something that promotes your well-being. Something that makes your life better every day. God gives us this daily.
- Pastors feel tired on Mondays after a ministry. But God said, ‘No blue Mondays, No terrible Tuesdays’.
You will activate it when you say it!
- That's what God taught you. He taught us how to pray. One of the things he taught amongst other things is – Give us today daily bread. Bread is provision. Bread is sustenance for the day. Open your mouth and ask the Heavenly Father what you need for the day. That day the Lord will give you what you need.
Prophecy: You have no bank balance. Zero savings. By the end of this year you will have heapsbecause God is going to bless you every day.
- There is a common phrase in English “that guy is loaded!” to refer to someone who is very wealthy. May be this came as an adaptation from the Bible. God leads us with the blessing. We are loaded by the Blessing of God.
- I am sharing this form my close experience. As a giver I am preaching this as I have seen this in my life. I have seen the different ways in which God can bless. I am saying this in full assurance.
The final authority concerning the blessing should be the Word of God.
Psalms 37:18- 19- The Lord knows the days of the [a]blameless, And their inheritance will be forever. 19 They will not be ashamed in the time of evil, And in the days of famine they will have plenty.
- Meditate on this and that’s when the blessing will manifest. It is in the Word of God.
The final authority concerning blessing should be the Word of God and not the pastor or the people around us or your situations.
Psalms 90: 14-16- Surprise us with love at daybreak; then we’ll skip and dance all the day long. Make up for the bad times with some good times; we’ve seen enough evil to last a lifetime. Let your servants see what you’re best at— the ways you rule and bless your children. And let the loveliness of our Lord, our God, rest on us, confirming the work that we do. Oh, yes. Affirm the work that we do!
- Surprise us with love at day break. Not shocks but surprises.
What is God best at? He is best at Blessing His children!!
Psalm 128:5- Enjoy the good life in Jerusalem every day of your life.
World teaches us that we cannot have good things everyday but the truth is everyday God wants us to enjoy. That doesn’t mean we don’t have struggles. Joseph went through the pit, prison but he was above the situations because He was blessed. You need the following:
- Meditate on God’s Word- What you mediate upon is what will happen.
- Expectancy is needed- a Hope is needed- What you expect the most that's what will happen. Both good and bad. It's called the law of attraction.
Mathew 8:13 MSG- 13 Then Jesus turned to the captain and said, "Go. What you believed could happen has happened." At that moment his servant became well. If you believe that blessing could happen to you, will happen.
