Joseph Prince - Be Led By His Anointing And Win
Praise the Lord. You ready for God's Word? So, we have the grain, the blessing on the grain. We have the blessing on the grapes, which is the wine. And then we have the blessing on the oil. And the Bible says, not just this harvest crops will be blessed because as it is, every time harvest comes, these are the crops. The main staple are crops of Israel, their main crop, which is always, grain, wine, oil. Grain to produce, to bring forth bread, amen, for the people to eat. And then wine is their drink for celebration, even for their religious festivals, amen, wine is used.
And then we have oil. Oil is for lighting up the menorah, lighting up their house. In those days, they don't have electricity, they use light and then oil is also for the anointing, anointing the king, the prophet. I was gonna say shepherd boy, amen, David, to become king, and the priest. So, we have the grain, the wine, and the oil. But we know, of course, that when God talks about blessing it in the Bible and increasing it until the threshing floor is full of wheat, and the wine vat is bursting forth with new wine, it's that idea of overflowing with spiritual blessings, amen. Can I have a good amen?
So, what is the grain? It is the bread. You can talk about the Word of God. You can talk about the broken body of Jesus that we partake. And then the wine, what does it speak of? Wine in the Bible can be the Holy Spirit in some cases, can also be joy, many a times, joy, amen? Wine is joy. Then we have the oil which is the Bible says oil for light, light that comes from the Holy Spirit. Oil is a symbol of the Holy Spirit and oil, when it's smeared or when it's anointed, it's the power of the Holy Spirit applied, amen. You can't say the Holy Spirit applied, but the power his anointing, the charism, the charism, all right, the word there anointing, which is a gerund, amen?
The Bible says the anointing dwells in you, which is in the English grammar gerund. A gerund is a verb that's acting like a noun. Anointing, anointing is a noun, but the anointing in you teaches you it's acting like a verb. Whenever it's anointing you, you know what to do by its presence or its absence. It's beyond words. Can I have a good amen? We have an anointing on the inside that teaches us, don't say this, don't do that. Okay, do this, do that. We follow the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Can I have a good amen? When we follow the Holy Spirit, we always succeed. "I am the Lord thy God which teacheth thee to profit". God says, "I teach you to profit, never to suffer loss, amen, to teach you to profit in every area of your life. I am the Lord your God who teacheth you to profit and to lead you in the way that you should go," amen?
The Bible says he leads us in paths of righteousness. He makes us to lie down in green pastures. That's the heart of our God for us, hallelujah. And this year, God wants to, there's a verse that comes to me right now in Jeremiah 33, I believe it is. It says, I'm gonna quote it right now. God says, and God is speaking of the city of Jerusalem, "And all the nations will hear of all the goodness". Let me quote it correctly, I'm getting this verse from the Lord. "And all the nations shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and all the prosperity that I procure unto it". Did you hear that? "All the nations will fear and tremble for all the goodness and all the prosperity that I procure unto it".
Esty, if you are searching your Bible, you can just put it up there, I think it's Jeremiah 33, if I'm not mistaken. Verse 9, okay, all right, I'm receiving this from the Lord as I, you know, I didn't give this verse to her. So, he says that God says the nations will fear and tremble. Remember that woman with the issue of blood when she touched the hem of Jesus's garment, her bleeding stopped? And the Bible says when Jesus turned around and says, "Who touched me"? The Bible says, "She fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her came and told the Lord everything".
So, many a times we think that fearing and trembling is something negative, something that you're about to be found out, you're about to be judged, you're about to be condemned. You know, the fearing and trembling is something fearful, but in Hebrewism, fearing and trembling is the idea of something is so good that you are overawed. That woman has something good happened in her called healing. She was healed, but she feared and trembled knowing what was done in her. And what was done in her? Healing, amen?
So, "The Bible says all the nations will fear and tremble for all the goodness and all the prosperity that I procure unto it," am I quoting it right? Look at that verse, all right. "And it shall be to me a name of joy, a praise and an honour, and all the nations of the earth," I'm quoting from the Old King James, "all the nations of the earth, will hear of all the good that I do to them: and they shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and all the prosperity that I provide for it".
I hear the Lord saying to me, "The reason I want you to blessed is not just for you to be blessed, amen, I want all the nations of the world to look at you. I want your colleagues to look at you. I want your relatives lives to look at you, and they will fear and tremble and be awed at all the goodness and all the prosperity that I provide for you and for your loved ones. You become a beacon of hope. You become a trophy of grace. You become a lighthouse of wisdom and guidance for a world that is lost and tossed and being turned in every other way, not finding direction. There is no anchor to their lives, no anchor to their souls. They are lost. They are drifting, amen? The world is lost. The things of the world is so he's lost they don't even know how lost they are".
I mean, it's crazy the things that the moral laxity, the things they allow. I mean, there was a time even in movies, there are certain coats they will not cross. You don't kill children in movies, and now and certain things like, you know, at that time, they don't even allow sex scenes and all that and now at the most, you know, you are fully clothed in our bedroom. But now it's like everything, anything goes. Even kids are being killed and killed almost in every other movie. There's no more boundaries, nothing. Anything in the name of money, anything that excite, you know, but there are things that is only right even.
And there's some things that's not wrong in movies but it's only right, right those things I mentioned just now that are wrong, sins, but there are some things that are not wrong, okay? But it's only right in its season. The Bible talk about in its season. It's not right for our children to watch it in the wrong season, amen. Some action movies are not good for our children when they are young, amen. Praise the Lord. Thank you, Jesus. Love you, Lord. And all the people said, amen.
So, the Bible says in 1 John chapter 2 it says, "You have an unction," verse 20, "You have an unction from the Holy One," I love this, "and you know all things". And this know all things is actually the word oida. Oida means you know it before your mind understands it. You know the perception, some people call it intuition, amen, intuition. You know it on the inside. In fact, you know it before your head can understand it, before your head can comprehend it, before your head can figure it out, before you can reason it out. Deep down you know the knower on the inside, amen.
That's how the Holy Spirit works and that's the oil that I want to share with you tonight or today, whatever the time is, wherever you're watching this, amen? The oil is called unction here. And if you look carefully, the verse before this actually says that are Antichrist released and these people Antichrist, many of them and they're in the church. They're in the church but Antichrist doesn't mean they're purposely coming against Jesus, saying things against Jesus. Anti can also mean in place of. Anti is not always against. Anti can actually be instead of or in place of, how many understand that? That's plain English, that's the definition of anti.
Now, Antichrist means other things have taken the place of Christ. Maybe the pastor have taken the place of Christ. Never let us be done in this church, all right? A few of you frighten me when I hear you talk about things and you say that: Well, Pastor Prince is not preaching today, but Jesus is there. Who are you looking at, mere flesh, mere man, amen? Yes, I have the gift from God, but God doesn't just limit his gift to one person in a church. People ask funny questions sometimes. Their eye is not on the Lord. All they talk about me among their colleagues as if I'm Jesus. I'm not, I'll let you know right now, amen? My wife knows it, amen? My leaders know it, I'm not. I have a calling from God, it's a very special call. I thank God for it, amen. It's kind of special, I feel, but I know it's a gift, a charisma gift. It's a grace gift, nothing that you can boast as if you earn it, nothing like that. I'm humbled by it.
Sometimes I'm overwhelmed by it. Sometimes I feel the pressure of it if I don't have the right attitude. But it's a gift. Character-wise, you and I are the same. Are you listening to what I'm saying? So, the Bible says here before, he says anointing from the holy one. The verse before that says this Antichrist are amongst us and they are replacing Jesus with something else. It can be something good, but it's not Jesus. Jesus can be replaced by something good and that's why in the Book of Hebrews, the Holy Spirit chapter 1, removes Aaron and Moses, okay, and then brings in Jesus. And then after that, removes the priesthood and then brings in Jesus, removes the Levitical priesthood and brings in Jesus's priesthood, Melchizedek.
One by one, every chapter he removes the old covenant and brings in the better covenant. Every chapter is a chapter, is a book of Jesus is better than. He's better than anything you can dream of, anyone else on earth, amen? Better than... I was gonna say a pop group right now but I think a lot of girls will get very angry with me right now, including my daughter so I'm not gonna say it, all right? It's better than any group you can dream of, don't be specific, amen? No one can meet your needs in every way like Jesus can. Praise the Lord. You want comfort, you want sympathy, friendship? Go with the one that wept with the sisters when their brother died even though he's gonna raise the brother from the dead, they did not know that, but he could weep with them because wherever there's tears and human sorrow, he enters into it like no other can.
The Bible doesn't say he sympathizes with us. The Bible says he can be touched with the feeling of our weaknesses. Empathy doesn't even cut it. He can be touched with the feeling. He feels what you feel and he wept. He wept because they were weeping, amen? Is that friendship you want? There you find it in him. What is it you want? You want power? You find it. The one who cast demons, demons beg him, "Don't send me there, don't send me there". They beg him. See, the picture of demons and they're not one demons, you know? There's a legion of demons, probably 600, talk about legionnaire of an army at a time, 600 to 1,000 begging him not to send them to the place of torment.
You see Jesus caring, asking his disciples, "Where can we find bread for all these to eat"? Testing them. And they say that, "Well, we can send them away". Says, "Cannot send them away. They've been with me for a few days. If I send them away, they'll faint along the way". Who really cares for the small picture when you have the big problem at hand? But for everything, he's the only one who saw after he raised Jairus' daughter from the dead, everyone was so happy even the parents are happy. They should happy that anybody, right? But only Jesus said, "Give her something to eat".
You know, he's not overwhelmed by the occasion. He cannot be flattered into good opinion of you, and he cannot criticize Jesus into a bad opinion of you. Something lovely about this wonderful man, Jesus. He can be your best friend as much as your Lord. Do you want someone to talk to you about your health, your healing, believing God? He's the one that cares for people everywhere he went. He went about doing good, healing all. He can give you the secrets of healing. He cares for you. He loves you, amen. I wish I have someone to guide me. He says, "'I am the good shepherd and the good shepherd gives his life for the sheep". "But I'm looking for love, all I want is love. I don't want more money, I don't wants anything else. I want love. I've been looking for love all my life. My father left me when I was young but my mom died when I want love, I just want love".
Well, look at the one who demonstrated his love as he hung there, blood soaked because of who? You. He didn't have to die and there's love like no other love that love. "No other love, no other love, no other love is like your love. No other love, no other love, no other love is like your love". If the devil keeps you up in the middle of the night, talk to him, not the devil, him, Jesus. You talk to him, he will talk to you, I tell you. I mean the devil will talk to you all night long, okay? Next day you need the hospital, all right, the mental one especially. Okay so, you can pour out your heart to him.
The word "boldness" in the Bible in the New Testament when it says we have boldness to come to God's presence, we have boldness to come to him, the world "boldness" is actually the literally the Greek word free speech, free speaking, literally, free speaking. In other words, you don't have to come to him with flowery praises. You don't have to come to him with biblical, you know, language. Free speaking means you can come to him and say, "Lord, I feel lousy today. Lord Jesus, I just don't like what that person did just now. Lord, I don't feel like forgiving my husband. But I know I have to, Lord, but right now I don't feel like". He's the only one you can say that to. And you know what? You will sense his compassion.
The more free you are, the more honest you are in your conversation, the more you take a walk with him in a garden or somewhere shopping of you ladies want to go shopping, amen. You can talk to him all the time that you are doing your shopping. Open up your heart, tell him your worries, tell him your cares. You don't even have to tell him to do something about it, just tell him. That's friendship time. That's free speech and you are in the presence of the holy, of the Lord of the Holy of Holies, walking in them all, my goodness. That is something that even in the Old Testament, the high priest only gets and only the high priest, no one else, gets to go in and only once a year and that with trepidation. It was an old and dying way. Chances are if it's not well prepared, you will die.
But now, it is a new and living way and one day, the Lord said to me, "You know why it's a living way"? I look it up, new there means freshly slain as if Jesus just died yesterday, freshly slain. New, that means just died as if he just died. But living way, the word there is actually living means every time you come, you come alive. Every time you come, if you are sick, you come alive. The more you come to Jesus, the more alive you become. The more you come to Jesus, the more healthier you end up. The more you come to Jesus, everything about you comes alive. Even the dead spots in your brain right now you cannot comprehend what I'm saying. It will all come alive. Have you ever felt after you leave church you are stronger? Not just physically, I'm talking about stronger in your mind, in your spirit, in your soul. Come on, church, give him the praise and the glory, hallelujah. It's a new and living way.
So, the Bible says you know all things and this know is on the inside, all right? It is beyond our brain but our reasoning, our logical analysis of a situation, of a person. It is something that you have an inward knowing, the Bible says. And the verse before this says this Antichrist, they went out from us because they were not of us, for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us. That explains and answers the question, "Pastor Prince, people who leave church and they don't come back, amen, what about them? Are they still saved"? Very simple, read that verse, the verse before this. It tells you that in the first place, they were not of us.
Now, there are those who are saved and left and then they joined another church. If they are truly saved, they'll always come back somewhere to the house of God, amen? But if they don't come back, they were never saved in the first place. Very simple, they were not of us, for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us. That's in verse 19. Then it says you have an anointing from the holy one, you know all things, including people that are not really the real deal. They're trying to replace Christ. They want you to look to them, amen? Like, for example, anointing oil. They are teaching about anointing oil, but you know how to do it? I gotta be the one to lay hands on it. If I don't lay hands on it, you must buy all the olive bottles, right, from me because specially prayed by me, and y'all know I'm anointed so they built this anointing.
And it's true, I'm anointed. Many of these people who are called by God in the fivefold ministry, not everyone is called to the fivefold ministry, and they're anointed. There's a special anointing there, yes, amen. But to say that they're the only ones that can lead you in Communion, they're the only ones who can pray over the oil and the oil is anointed, okay? I'm gonna use a strong word, but I realized the Lord restrained me, the anointing within. I want to something about cow dung, but the Lord restrained me. It wasn't dung, it was something stronger but it is purely nonsense, all right? It is simply untrue. It is defecation matter, all right?
To say that you are the only anointed one, you are the only one people can, all right, so, be very careful about this kind of thing, that's why when we had our anointing oil day to pray for our anointing oil, we told you any bottle will do, right? Any oil will do. My preference is olive oil, but, you know, any oil will do, amen? The oil you use for our hair, all right, also can. You got no oil, use that one, amen, no problem. Remember the time when we were at The Rock back then, amen, we met at The Rock and below the mall, Kafu, they ran out of olive oil. And they say, the other people, "What's going on"? How about making that happen again, yeah, to all the shops around here, amen? So, there is a place.
"But Pastor Prince, this oil and all that, does it really matter"? You know, the anointing will lead you. Now anointing is amazing. You know, when anointing comes on your body, when someone smears anointing on you, all right, for exercise therapy or whatever, massage, you know, physiotherapy, they put oil and you can sense and there is a warmth, you can feel it. You can feel a warmth and many a times as you're listening to me preach, you feel a warmth come to your heart. That's the anointing, you experience the anointing. It can be felt. Don't always look for feelings, but God gave us feelings so it can be felt. Can I have a good amen?
And this anointing will teach us all things. And many a times you know a teaching. Many of you understand grace, not because Pastor Prince... okay, let me put it this way. Let me say it in a better way. You understand with your mind because Pastor Prince taught it. But many a times, long before you heard me elucidate it, you actually know it. And you hear a wrong teaching, the Holy Spirit on the inside gives you the absence of that peace and that, you know, something is not right about this teaching. So, when I preach it when you sat in my teaching or you read my book, your inside was saying, "This is it. This is it. This is it". I didn't give you the this is it, that is the anointing within and that's how you can tell false teachers from the real teachers, amen, it bears witness with your spirit.
Argument, people can say, "Pastor Prince is a false teacher, that person's a false teacher, grace teaching is a false, grace teaching all that". They can attack your mind and, you know, the social media is full of it, people of minds attacking people of minds, attacking people of minds, attacking people of minds, answered but reply about people of minds. You cannot answer people of minds with logical questions because one logical answer you have, they have 10,000 logical questions, amen. Jesus does not deal with, you know, that's why they don't live in the realm of the miraculous. They don't live in the realm of the supernatural. They don't see things happen because they live in the realm of the brain, amen? But look at Jesus, why miracles happen in his ministry?
Number one, even though he's divine, in a sense, he didn't use his deity when he lived as a man. He's hundred percent man, he came to be hundred percent human, except no sin. No sin in his nature. He was born. The Bible says that holy thing, that holy thing is actually born of thee. He was conceived in the Holy Spirit, amen? Now, but he had to be baptized by the Holy Spirit, anointed by the Holy Spirit when he was about 30 years old at the River of Jordan coming up, and the Holy Spirit came on him. No record that he did miracles before that. I know there are some apocryphal stories of Jesus as a boy. He saw a bird struggling on the floor. His friend saw him pick up the bird, touch the bird's legs, and the bird flew off.
You know, that kind of story. It's all apocryphal. The Bible says this is the first miracle that Jesus did, turning water into wine. Only when he was baptized with the Holy Spirit, miracles started flowing into his life, the supernatural, amen, because he is the pattern man. He's also the man who is gonna pattern himself for us to follow after. So, if Jesus, the Son of God, has to be anointed by the Holy Spirit, how much more you and I? Can I have a good amen? Amen? So, if you listen in the realm of logic, why are people not receiving their healing, why people are not receiving their breakthrough? Because they are too strong in their heads, too strong in their heads.
Let me show you and example of what I'm trying to say in all this. In Luke 5 please, it says in Luke 5, "When Jesus", Okay, the story is the man who was lame was being lowered. Remember his friends, four friends? Sometimes many of us don't want to be the guy lying in the mat, right? We wanna be the guy who carry, but sometimes, thank God for the faith of a few close friends. They carry us through with their prayer, their love. And then they lowered, where Jesus was meeting, the place was packed, the Bible says. The place was jam-packed, why? Because he just cleansed a leper. Remember that?
So, all the doctors of the law and the Pharisees from Jerusalem came over right here, and you can see this in Capernaum, which is actually Peter's house. Peter's house roof got broken. And you know, it is something that only someone who loves their friend that much would do it, and desperate to have the friend come to Jesus. So, they lowered the man down as Jesus was teaching. The Pharisees were all watching and Jesus saw the man as he was lowered down. The Bible says, "When Jesus saw their", not their reasoning, not their logic, their faith. "He said to the man, sick, 'Man, your sins are forgiven you.'"
Obviously why he was sick and all that. Not every sickness is caused by sin, but many, many people... and again, by the way, you know, strictly speaking, all sickness come from sin because one sin, Adam's sin. If Adam never sinned, there'll be no sickness. But what I'm trying to say is that it doesn't mean someone is sick, that means that person has sin. That's what I'm referring to. Never say that of anyone. Like Jesus told his disciples when they found a man who was born blind, "Did this man sin," they asked Jesus, "or his parents sinned"? Jesus says, "Neither, but that the works of God should be made manifest". The question is always, don't get involved in all this stupid logic, but the problem exists for me to meet it. There's a problem, meet it, amen? So, Jesus told the man, "Your sins are forgiven you".
Obviously he was in a position where he was feeling guilty about something, and that guilt and that condemnation, which I always say condemnation kills, has gotten this man flat on his back with some sickness. Many times doctors even today say that when you don't forgive yourself and you hate yourself, you know, and a lot of people don't even realize they are doing this to themselves, your body fights against your own body. It's called psychosomatic. That means your mind is in guilt. Your soma, your body starts fighting. They have psychosomatic illnesses, sicknesses, which means they say that your own body is fighting against itself. There is a civil war going on on the inside. Your body is trying to obey the mind that feels guilty and the heart that feels guilty, and you want punishment.
No, you say, "Pastor Prince, I don't want punishment". No, when you feel guilty, you are saying, "I must be punished. Only then I can be relieved from this guilt". But the gospel is that, look at Jesus. There is your punishment. There is your punishment. You must let your conscience look at the cross and say, "Yes, I did wrong, but there's my punishment". Some of you, you feel so angry the things that you did last time, you feel like kicking yourself and all that. Stop that. You feel like cutting yourself. Stop that. You feel like killing yourself. Stop that, because someone was condemned in your place. Look to that and let your heart be at rest. Your conscience is purged, amen?
True humility is not to punish yourself. That's pride. You can't punish yourself well enough, not to that extent also, huh? With all due respect, you cannot even punish yourself that well. So, true humility is to accept Jesus's punishment on the cross as yours and to say, "Lord, thank you". That's true punishment. That is accepting your punishment in a way that Jesus's punishment was your punishment, amen? And that will cause you to fall in love with the Lord Jesus. I'm telling you, amen. And you will have him as your best friend. Not just your Lord, your God, but your best friend. So, back to this. This man was sick. Jesus says, "Your sins are forgiven you," before he healed him. "And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason".
Dia logizomai, where our English word comes from, "logic," logizomai. They were logizomaing, logic. They heard Jesus say that and they began to reason, saying, "Who is this who speaks blasphemies? Who can forgiven sins but God alone"? They are right. They are right, right? Yeah, ask yourself. Who can forgive sins but God alone? So, who is this man? "But when Jesus perceived their thoughts". Ah-ha, this word "perceived" is an inward faculty. It is a faculty of your spirit. It is where the Holy Spirit dwells. People reason, you perceive. When the law of reasoning is going on, stop and ask yourself, "God, Lord, what are you saying, Lord, about this whole thing"?
Sense, sense. Sometimes there's a lot of argument. It's just a smoke screen. Somebody is trying to get out of something. I have that come to me before. I've had, you know, things that say... the Lord saying, "This is not the thing that they're arguing about. There's something deeper, something that is causing this". Your husband comes back and picks a quarrel with you, and you, "Okay, stop, you know? He looks this, or he's trying to find for me. He's gonna bring up my mother again. He's gonna do this and talk about my cooking again".
How many, you know, your mind is reasoning. Your mind is reasoning. Even before your husband say, your mind is reasoning. Your mind is reasoning, you know? And then before you know it, you are angry with him. Before he can say anything, you are angry already, and then when he say something, bang, you know, the whole thing starts. But then if you listen for a while and the Lord's saying, "Something really bad happened at work today. He's fearful. He is afraid that he might be the next one," or something like that. Just sense. You might not know the whole thing, but you just sense something happened. "Did something happen at work, dear"?
A soft answer turns away wrath. Not easy, because your whole mind, you are raised to be a logical person. You look at all the comments of anything that happened, got A and B one for sure. Don't waste your time. Your time is too precious to look at other people's logizomai. Logizomai, logizomai, logizomai, logizomai. Ask yourself on the inside, you know? "Oh, I don't like this. I don't like that. I don't like this," and then that person, they end up quarreling, right? Logizomai never brings peace. Never say, "You know, guys, let's get together and, you know, celebrate. Guys, hey, let's get together". No, it always gets strife, become profanity or vulgarity, huh?
So, Jesus perceived. He perceived their thoughts. They were reasoning not openly, you know? They were reasoning in their minds, you know, but he perceived their thoughts. All right, this is spirit realm. "He answered and said to them, 'Why are you logizomai in your hearts? Why are you reasoning in your hearts? Which is easier to say, "Your sins are forgiven," or "Rise up and walk"? But that you may know the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins.' He turned to the man who was sick, 'Rise up, take up your bed, and walk.'" And the dude walked, man. Next verse, amen, "Immediately he rose up before them, took up what he had been lying on, and departed to his own house, glorifying God. And they were all amazed, and glorified God, were filled with fear, 'We have seen strange things today!'"
Here I am, I'm telling you people, if you are logic, logi, logi, there is no result, no supernatural power released. But when you are in the spirit realm, you speak, power is released. Most arguments start with logic. So, what you are saying, "No, no, no, no, no, stop, stop, stop. Just now you said this, and I said this. After that you said this". Actually the person forgot already, and deep down in your heart you realize, "Actually, what are we arguing about"? You know, but you don't wanna, because staying in the logical realm is better. But you turn back to the Spirit, the Spirit says, "Okay, let go. Ten years from now, you'll forget about all this already".
It's not important in the course of your life. This will just be a little, you know, little dot that'll be forgotten. Some things, in training your children, in correcting them, in scolding them, it doesn't really matter in some moments whether you do that or not. The Lord doesn't even care, amen. The Lord says nothing. But there are times the Lord says, "No, no, don't let that go," and then you let that go, you don't have the peace, why? You didn't follow the anointing. You should correct when you're supposed to, then you'll feel the peace. But sometimes you correct at the wrong time when the peace isn't there, now you got no peace. You feel guilty for correcting, all right? Grace people need to hear this. Grace people are just indulgent. Their child can do no wrong.
One of the things I told those who were helping watching over Justin some time ago was, "When he's wrong, you gotta tell me. Don't let him go by with murder just because he's my son. If he is rude, you must let me know". Yeah, there's always a special room to bring him. Many times nowadays, no need already. He'll start running to me, hug me, and saying, "Sorry, sorry," that fast. Just do it right the first time, you have him always remembering. When a child is properly corrected, okay, they become more loving to you. They end up honoring you. You know, if someone doesn't correct you when you are younger, then you know, one day the institution will do it, but without love. They'll just go by the law. Parents, do it with love. I don't know why I'm saying this, okay? I'm just following the Spirit. Amen, praise God.
"And they were all amazed, and they", so, Jesus had the miracle where the Pharisees could talk and talk, but they can do nothing about the situation. Jesus perceived, they reasoned. That's why Jesus won. They don't have results. Jesus had results, amen. Perceive. Someone can say a lot of things to you, present to you a good presentation, but listen to your spirit. Listen to your heart. Are you know, are you having the peace the invest to do that? And they will argue based on reasoning. They will open up, you know, things to show you statistics and all that nowadays. Really, really nice. They will show you augmented reality, amen, the stats and all that. But you gotta ask yourself... I know some people might not like me anymore, but you know what?
If you listen to what I'm saying, even if you're a salesperson, okay, you will succeed. You will succeed because there'll be supernatural power attending to your way. Amen. What I'm trying to say is this. There are things a lot of people are selling which are good things, right, but they are things that you can't afford at this time or should not be investing. And there are things you should invest in. I would think insurance is one of them, amen, your life insurance or whatever. There are some things it's wisdom, but some things just a matter of like, you know, we just spend, spend. Look at Jesus, he's generous. Five loaves, two fish. He fed them until the Bible says he gave to his disciples to pass to them, the 5,000 men who were hungry, they ate until they were full. They ate until they were full. And they gave as much as the people would, not as God would. They gave as much as they would.
John's Gospel talks about it. They gave, they gave, they gave the fish, they gave the bread to all the people, as much as they would, until they say, "Oh, enough, enough, enough". Then the supply stopped. Would you call that generosity, that Jesus is a generous God, a benevolent God? But watch this, watch this. Know what he said? "Get all the fragments that remain. Let nothing be wasted". Ah, look at this amazing man. Yes, generous, but no wastage. Honoring God's creation. That is not wasted. God supply, God supply everything, lah. Blast everything on, air con on, you know, light, I mean, why you argue? God supply. Don't worry.
Pastor Prince say you are the latter rain. Brother, if you don't follow God's leading, this year there'll be a latter pain somewhere down the road, all right? Somewhere down the road. Somewhere down the road. Jesus didn't believe in that. You know, I love this, there's one of the five offerings that I've taught before many years ago now. And one of the five offerings has no blood. All the other four has blood and all depict the Lord Jesus and his death on the cross, except for this one. It's called the grain offering.
Leviticus 2, "When anyone offers a grain offering to the Lord, his offering shall be of fine flour". No blood, it's grain. We're talking about the blessing on the grain, grain. Now, it's actually grain, fine flour. Say, "Fine flour". Not just flour, fine flour. Fine flour. When you touch fine flour, it's so soft, you can hardly feel it. You press it, right, there's nothing coarse. Not one grain that's coarse. You can't feel any unevenness. It's so soft. You touch it, it's like fine flour. You know, they sift through, and they sift through, and they sift through, and it's fine flour because it's a picture of Jesus Christ. When they offer the lamb on the altar, what your don't see is also they offer like the matzah bread. It comes from fine flour, okay? But the ingredients are here: "Fine flour, and he shall pour oil on it". Ah-ha! Is Jesus right? The person of Jesus mentioned here, he's fine flour.
Now, fine flour, anointing oil on him, that's Jesus, anointed by the Holy Spirit. I just told you just now, his benevolence does not cancel out his good stewardship over the resources that remain. There's no wastage. Now, for us, either we are generous. We are not fine. And then another feature is what? We are wasting. Or we say, "Must be good steward. Must be good steward". Have you heard that saying? Good steward, good steward, good steward, until no money is spent. So miserly, so stingy, why? Good steward. We gotta be good stewards. Gotta be good steward. In heaven one day, the Lord says, "Why didn't you use it, what I gave you"? "Good steward". "Good steward? Go down there. There is your reward".
No one will lose salvation in front of the Lord, but rewards, yes. Some will get greater rewards. You say, "Well, I don't need the reward". You don't know what you need until the day you see it. There'll be tears. Some will get more rewards, some will get no rewards. Those who use the gifts that God gives them, amen, will get rewards. These moral features in Jesus, it's amazing. It's beautiful. Like, there's such his majesty. There's such a majestic presence when Jesus appears on a scene. Sometimes his majesty just overwhelms.
The disciples stop talking, "What was it you all discussed along the way"? I mean, they slept with him, they walked with him, day in, day out. It is said no one is a hero to his valet, you know? Valet is someone who takes care of you day and night. It's like they see everything, and yet when they were discussing who will be the greatest among them, they'd even dare not tell him. someone they see every single day. There's a majesty. There is a dignity. When he was praying before the Father in the Garden of Gethsemane, he was prostrate. But when he was standing before the Pharisees and his accusers, there he was with wonderful dignity, unbending dignity. One moment, crying before the Father, prostrate. Another moment, standing. When his captives came, he spoke one word, they all fell.
There is such this fine flour, these moral features, there's such a beautiful equilibrium that our hearts can acquiesce in this wonderful Jesus. Rest in Jesus. Feed on him, 'cause flour is to become bread for us to eat. It's how we feed on him. So, when I go to the gospels, I see fine flour. He stands up after writing everything, fine flour. Such a feature about him. He can be sleeping, apparently a picture of very human to sleep, tired, very human. Another moment, the storm. He stands up, "Peace"! Perfect calm. Whoo, there is such an amazing amalgamation of moral features that delight our soul, amen?
You look at Peter, one moment he says, "Lord, you are the Christ, the Son of the Living God". Jesus says, "Flesh and blood did not reveal this to you". The same passage, just a while after that, Jesus says, "I'm going to the cross," right? He says, "You must never let this happen to you". Jesus turns around and says, "Get behind me, Satan". So, one moment, it's like that's all of us, right? All of us, right? We can be, "Whoa man," just a moment later. No one is like Jesus. Even Paul, Paul one moment, Paul had to recall a word. Jesus never had to recall one word. Paul was standing, being judged by the high priest at that time, and the high priest said to his servant who was standing near Paul, "Smite him on the face".
So, the guy whacked Paul and Paul turned to the high priest and said, "God smite you, you whited wall". Surely they are wearing white. And Paul says, "God smite you, you whited wall". And the guy says, "Do you know who that is"? Maybe Paul was like blue, black, or whatever. He didn't realize, you know? He just saw someone wearing white. He didn't know it was the high priest. High priests usually wear the white garment, I mean the glorious garments, but all white can be any priest. "That's the high priest, you know"? someone told Paul. "Oh, sorry. The Bible says you must not revile your leader, your ruler". Paul apologized. Paul had to recall a word, Jesus never.
The one who leaned on Jesus's breast who hears his heartbeat of love, the one that calls himself the disciple whom Jesus loved, he's the one that said, "Shall we call down fire from heaven and burn up all the Samaritans"? Apostle of love. All of us are the same. There's only one, you look, everywhere you look at him, he's beautiful. You know, when he's kind and he bends down, he doesn't lose his dignity, you know? When we try to be humble, we allow people to walk all over us. "I'm a Christian," walk. "I'm a Christian," walk. Into their hand, "I'm a Christian, okay. I know what to do. You know you cannot walk over me". It's like there's no flow. There is no, everything is cause.
You and I, okay, I, okay, you take my flour, ugh. Wah, this chapati gonna be trouble, man ii'll get stuck in your throat. And that's the beautiful, he shall pour oil on it. What is that? The Holy Spirit, he will be anointed. And then put frankincense on it, put frankincense, what is that? Put frankincense. Frankincense is that which emits beautiful fragrance, drives away in the Middle East they use it also to drive away bugs, pests, and snakes out there in the desert, and there's a very beautiful aroma. You can buy it actually at any aroma therapy kind of shop. You can smell it. Nowadays, they have the inferior ones. The real runs with those in Qatar and different places and all that, amen? The smell is amazing. That means everything he did. "This one is caught in the act of adultery, Moses says such shall be stoned". He bent down.
I tell you when he bent down, emits a fragrance to the father. Every thought, every word of Jesus, every act emits a fragrance that only the Father appreciates. The Father can smell it. Finally the Father's heart is at rest. He has found a man in whom he's well pleased. He's been looking for that man and final the man is there and he stood up. "He that's without sin among you, throw the first stone," fragrance to the Father, fragrance. And save the sinner. Fragrance and yet sometimes it's a withering rebuke, like fine flour against those who are pharisaical and condemning others and having attitude holier than thou.
Yet, when we talk to that woman who had five husbands, such considerateness the way he brings out her sin, the way he lets her. And she's the only one 'cause the chapter before that, John 3, he was talking to a Pharisee. He was like you can almost say, come straight to the point, you must be born again. With all your Erudite learning, you must be born again, but he never told that woman at the well who had five husbands, "You must be born again". Obviously, she need to be born again. He knew at the right time how to flow. He was very considerate to her. He talked about water without embarrassing her. "You know, you drink this water, you will thirst again. You look for love in all the wrong places, that's why you'll always end up thirsty. But I have water that when you drink, you'll never thirst again".
And then you know something? Chapter 3, to the Pharisee he never says, "I am the Messiah". To that woman, the woman asked, "Who is he"? "I will speak unto I am He". In a very short time that woman found out, at first she called him sir, right? Then called him first a Jew, then sir, then rabbi, finally Messiah, and she became an evangelist. Such is altogether lovely. "Isn't he wonderful? Isn't he wonderful? Isn't Jesus my Lord wonderful? Eyes have seen, ears have heard, it's recorded in God's Word. Isn't Jesus my Lord wonderful"? So, when you read the gospels, see fine flour, see every action is empowered by the Holy Spirit, every touch, every answer, every look. Even when you turn, when Peter denied knowing him three times when he was captured, the third time he turned and looked at Peter. Even that look emits a fragrance, amen.
There's no mistake or accident and that look broke Peter's heart as if to say, "Peter, I told you this would happen, but I still love you. Only love can break a heart, laws cannot. Laws produce a stony heart," amen? Are y'all learning, people? And then he goes on to say, I'm bringing this to a close. If you bring as an offering now, you bring the fine flour, you bake it, right? You bake it in the oven tannuwr, and in those days they used the tannuwr. Literally, the idea the Indians used tannuwr, it's all back from the Middle East. In India, they were using it already. So, he was burned, right?
Now, in the oven, it shall be unleavened cakes of fine flour mixed with oil or unleavened wafers anointed with oil. Bang, what beautiful order in his order. How beautiful this is when you see it. He was born mixed with oil. Oil is the Holy Spirit, when he was born, he was conceived in the Holy Spirit. The angel Gabriel said to Mary, "The power of the highest shall overshadow you and the Holy Spirit," amen? He was conceived in the Holy Spirit. In other words, his human spirit and God's Holy Spirit mingled. Now, for us, it happens when we are born again. Now, this is not anointing yet. It's not anointing of the Holy Spirit. It's mixed.
The Old King James says, Old King James says, mingled with oil. His spirit and the Holy Spirit mingled. That's what happened to us when we were born again. But then at the age of 30, anointed with oil at the River Jordan. Can you see Jesus here? Under the law, in the law, the book of the law, the book that when most pages are still stuck in Christian Bibles, can you see Jesus here? His birth mixed with oil, his manhood anointed by the Holy Spirit, such beautiful order. Sometimes when I take my Communion, I stop and think of this. Drop down, show them, you shall break it in pieces. You shall break it in pieces, now it's like the matzah bread.
The fine flour has been baked, becomes a bread like a wafer, matzah bread. You break it, all right? You shall break it in pieces and pour oil on it. It's a grain offering, then it's like you break it in pieces. What does that mean, break it in pieces and pour oil on it? Every time I read the Bible, every time I see Jesus, whatever he says, whatever he does, I pour oil on it. In other words, I'm seeing him doing it by the anointing of the Holy Spirit, how God anointed Jesus of the Nazareth with the Holy Spirit with power, went about doing good, healing all that were oppressed of the devil. For God was with him, and God is healing people right now. All kinds of stomach conditions, stand to your feet in Jesus's name.
All right, if you're having it or you're having it now, stand to your feet. There's some severe problems that people are having this past week. Stand to your feet, all over this place, just stand and receive your miracle, receive your healing right now in Jesus's name, amen? Pain, growths in your womb, cysts in your womb, stand up in Jesus's name and receive your miracle right now. In the name of Jesus, thank you Lord Jesus, thank you, Lord Jesus, thank you, Lord Jesus. Cysts are disappearing right now, even as I speak, amen? I'm telling you right now in Jesus's name that God's power is being released in a mighty way in the name of Jesus.
Someone here has a left shoulder problem, stand up and as you stand up, lift, just punch your fist into the air. Do it right now in the name of Jesus, just stand up and do that. Whatever you're watching this right now, there is no time nor space with the Holy Spirit. He can touch you right where you are. This word is not just for the people confined within the Star Performing Arts Center, it is for every that's under New Creation Church as well as Grace Revolution Church. Thank you, Lord Jesus, in the name of Jesus, thank you, Father, amen, amen. Start moving your hand up and down. Move your hand up and down. Thank you, Lord Jesus, amen. It's amazing that as you do that, you can sense the pain is gone.
Now, if you know the pain is gone, those of you with left shoulder to the upper shoulder condition and you can't leave it, but with pain, I want you to do it right now so I can see it, amen? If you know as you lift it like this, listen, if you know the pain is gone, the Lord has touched you, just do like this now, do like this. The pain is gone. The pain is gone. Sir, the pain is gone? All right, okay there lady, okay, the pain is gone, just let me know by doing this. Praise the Lord, it's gone? It's gone? How long you had it? I think your voice is strong enough. Six months. It's quite severe and you've been having pain when you lift up like this. Frozen, wow. I've got a testimony of a frozen shoulder that I didn't read today and the person used anointing oil. Thank you, Lord Jesus, frozen shoulder.
Now I, just want you to hold that thought because this is amazing. There's a lady who has a frozen shoulder and this is the testimony I'm supposed to read, and she was so afraid when he she had the frozen shoulder. And the doctors told her that she needed her shoulder replacement. "And the news frightened me so around that time, I started watching Pastor Prince's program," and she started taking Communion as well as using the anointing oil. She put anointing oil there, take Communion.
"About a year later, I finally had an MRI done on my shoulder and proceeded to see a surgeon. He looked at the MRI and asked me to spell my name. When I did," it's a lady from America and she said, "When I did, he looked at me and said that there must have been some mistake. The MRI showed that there was absolutely nothing wrong with my shoulder. Tears filled my eyes and I began to tell him my story. Thank you, Pastor Prince".
I was about to share this, praise the Lord. The rest of you, if you know pain has left your... not everything is standing because of the shoulder, but those of you who are standing because the shoulder, lift up your hand one more time and do a wave if your pain has left you. Praise the Lord, sister over here, the pain has left you, no more pain? How long you had it? You can shout to Joe.
Joe: Six months, she had it for six months.
Joseph Prince: Six months, you're also, six months also, right? And you are here and she's here. Balance, fine flour. And all the pain is gone and when you lift up your hand like that, it was very painful? Was it frozen shoulder as well? No. You hurt yourself, sports?
Joe: It was a nerve pain.
Joseph Prince: The doctor said it's a nerve pain, that can be quite severe. Thank the Lord it shall not return in Jesus's name, amen? Amen, thank you, Lord Jesus. Thank you, Lord Jesus. Those of you who are standing with stomach condition, any kind of stomach condition, how many are feeling the warmth in your stomach? Put your hand right here, amen, and if that is you, so I know you are the stomach condition people, all right, the rest of you can sit down with a frozen shoulder and... stomach also? Frozen shoulder? Lift up your hand or stomach or shoulder?
Joe: Stomach ulcers, stomach ulcers.
Joseph Prince: Stomach ulcers. Put your hand on your stomach so I can tell 'cause if you're raising your hand, that's for the shoulder. Those up there, okay, now in the name of Jesus, I release that healing right now. In the name of the Lord Jesus, thank you, Father, heal, heal, heal perforated ulcers even, heal, heal. Seal up the ulcers. Heal in Jesus's mighty name. Now, if you feel the warmth, sometimes, you know, in a case like this, you can't really tell, but the Lord gives you a sign. You can feel the warmth, just do a wave. You feel the power of God come on you. Now, don't doubt, don't doubt, the Lord has touched you, amen? You may be seated, thank you, Lord Jesus. Praise the name of Jesus. Father in the name of Jesus right now, will you stand to your feet just for a while, everyone? Just stand to your feet.
Now, I will release you soon, but I just want to pray for the rest of you because the anointing is still here. Is it okay with take advantage of the oil? All right, God is releasing the oil. He's pouring out the oil. I think there are angels stationed, not just here in the performing arts center, but also in everywhere that is in New Creation Church is watching this right now and in Grace Revolution Church, amen. And by the way, if you attend the third service, fourth service, the anointing is just as present, just as strong, you can stand up and there and even for these conditions and receive in Jesus's name.
Right now I'm gonna pray for you and when I pray for you at the end of the prayer, start doing what you cannot do, amen? Insomnia excepted, and constipation. These two things, don't have, okay, but the rest of you, whatever you can't do. How many are glad you can be in the house with the Lord, amen, and have joy, amen? Yes, Father, in Jesus's name. He's releasing the anointing right now in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. I loose you from your infirmities. Man, woman, you are loosed from your infirmities in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Everywhere that's watching this right now, regardless of time and space, right now, you are loosed. You are freed from all your infirmities in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Be healed from the crown of your head to the souls of your feet, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Now, start doing what you cannot do in Jesus's name. Say, "Thank you, Jesus," and start doing what you cannot do before. You can't bend your knee, bend now. Can't bend your back, do it right now. Can't move your neck, move your neck right now, amen? Keep on doing it. Faith is also an act, amen. You see the people in the Bible, they acted on the Word, amen? If you know pain has left, you know the fever broke, the condition is no more there, don't doubt, give him the praise. Do a big wave for all those who receive. All right, just for a while, hold the claps first, hold the claps except for those who receive. You know that some condition have left you, all across I see your hands waving. Only those people, wave. When you know you have received, wave, wave, wave, praise the Lord.
All right, look at all these precious people. Way up there, I see you, amen. Now, give Jesus the praise. Look at all those hands. Keep on waving, keep on waving, hallelujah. Thank you, Lord Jesus, I wish we have time to interview you. Write to the church, let us know. For some of you you can't tell now, but you'll go back just like the Bible says and find that disease no more, amen? You will look for the enemy, the Bible says, and find his place no more. Like a small child will say, "no more," amen? Praise the Lord.
And all because this wonderful Jesus came and gave his life on that cross, amen. And on that cross, all the sufferings he went through was because he loved you. Friend, on the third day, God raised him from the dead. The same body that carried your sins, and not just your sins, your diseases as well and your curse and paid for it all and said, "finished," at the cross, it was truly finished because on the third day when God raised him from the dead, there was no more sin left, no disease left, not a single trace, not a vestige of the curse remained and we rose with him. This is truly our position now, risen with Christ, amen? Now, we still have the flesh, that's where the sin is, but we are not in our flesh, we are in the Spirit, we are in Christ, amen?
So, identify with that every day, amen, and look at Jesus, keep on looking at Jesus. You got a problem with temper, look at Jesus and look how beautiful he is, amen? Don't try to deal with your temper, it will just be fleshly. Look at Jesus and be transformed from glory to glory. Lift up your hands all across this place. The Lord bless you, you and your families, and the Lord keep you. The Lord protect you. Wait, wait a minute, we're gonna pray for those who never received Jesus yet.
Right now, pray this prayer, many of you want to put your trust in Christ. Wherever you're watching this right now, there's no time this space. You pray this prayer and what happened to that lady at the well will happen to you. What happened when I said mixed spirit, mixed with oil will happen to you right now when you put your trust in Christ, you'll be born again.
Father in heaven, I believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God who died for my sins and rose from the dead without them. Jesus Christ is my Lord, my Savior. Thank you, Father, for loving me. In Jesus's name, amen.
Praise the Lord. The Lord bless the rest of you under the sound of my voice, wherever you're listening to this, the blessing will manifest as you believe and receive. The Lord bless you and the Lord keep you, you and your loved ones. Preserve you and your families from every danger, harm, accident, tragedy, from every disease, from emotional trauma, and from all the power of the evil one. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord make his face shine on you, be favorable to you. Lift up his countenance and see him always smiling on you, amen. You are the favored of the Lord, amen. You're a victor, not a victim. You're a leader and not the tail, amen? In Jesus's mighty name, and all the people said, amen, God bless you.
