21 January 2018 – How to Receive the Spirit of Wisdom from God – Pastor Joseph Prince Sermon Notes Online – New Creation Church Sermon Notes Online
That’s how you flow in the prophetic gift.
Our young children can flow in the prophetic gift too.In the Bible, if there’s a listing, more often than not, Wisdom is the first thing mentioned.
The gift of the word of wisdom is the first spiritual gift of the Holy Spirit mentioned.
Wisdom is the first thing mentioned of what Christ is to us.The Bible is God breathed. The Bible contains lies as well which are faithfully recorded – Example: the lie that Satan told Eve in the Garden of Eden.
Job is the oldest book in the Bible.
Moses compiled Genesis and Exodus.
Job 26:7 – God knows how the world is made. The Book of Job says this very clearly: the earth hangs upon nothing.
“He stretches out the north over empty space; He hangs the earth on nothing.” (Job 26:7 NKJV)
Job 25:5 – The moon doesn’t shine. It reflects light.
“If even the moon does not shine, And the stars are not pure in His sight,” (Job 25:5 NKJV)
Leviticus 17:11 – The life of the flesh is in the blood.
Only the life of Jesus in His blood can wash away our sins. It is the blood of God Himself!
“For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul.’” (Leviticus 17:11 NKJV)
Many people believe in the Big Bang Theory.
It takes more faith to believe in that, that order came out of nowhere.
In this world everything entropies – Example: a hot coffee gets cold after leaving it out in a room.
Evolution is false – Everything on this earth doesn’t get from lower to higher. It seems like the earth is folding up and getting old.
Three levels of reading God’s word:
1) The letter of the word (Outer Court) ,
2) The meaning of the word (The Holy Place),
3) The unveiling of Jesus in the word. (Holy of Holies)
Deuteronomy 30:3 – This was a prophetic word back then when it was written.
This is the 5708th verse in the Torah. On that year in the Hebrew calendar, Israel came back as a nation.
“that the LORD your God will bring you back from captivity, and have compassion on you, and gather you again from all the nations where the LORD your God has scattered you.” (Deuteronomy 30:3 NKJV)
Pray for God to give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation
If you study science from the Bible, you will never be wrong.
The word “God” is Aleph Tav (The first and the last letter of the Hebrew Alphabet) in the Hebrew which is a signature of Jesus.
Jesus created the heavens and the earth.
In the Hebrew, this verse has 7 words. The center (4th Word) is Aleph Tav (Jesus) – it forms a menorah.
In this verse, there are 14 Hebrew letters in the first 3 Hebrew words and there are 14 Hebrews in the last 3 Hebrew words. 14 is a multiple of 7.
There are actually 30 combinations of 7’s in this verse in Hebrew! “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1 NKJV)There is a trickle-down blessing from God for the Jews because of God’s covenant with Abraham.
The founders of WhatsApp and Facebook are both Jews.
Jews have dominated the Nobel Prizes too.
There are 7 Spirits of God. In the center is the Spirit of the Lord. The first one is the Spirit of Wisdom.
God made us tripartite beings (3 parts): Spirit, Soul, Body.
There are 9 gifts of the Holy Spirit of which wisdom is mentioned first:
3 wisdom gifts: The word of wisdom, the word of knowledge, and discerning of spirits.
3 vocal gifts: Tongues, Interpretation of tongues, and Prophecy.
3 power gifts: Healings, Working of Miracles and Faith.
James 1:5-7 – Only people of wisdom think that they lack wisdom.
When you ask God for wisdom, ask in faith and just thank God for the wisdom.
“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord;” (James 1:5-7 NKJV)
Ephesians 1:16-19 – If just being a Christian means you have it, then why would Paul pray for them to have the spirit of wisdom?
God doesn’t manifest as the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation unless we ask Him to.
Wisdom is for what to do, for future things, but Revelation is for what you already know or have.
All believers have God’s blessings but many don’t know that they have it.
However it is as good as not having it if they don’t know that they have it.
Pray for the spirit of revelation so that you can know what you have in Christ.
After that you can also pray for the spirit of counsel and might so that you can do and act on what you know.
“do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers: that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power” (Ephesians 1:16-19 NKJV)
Praying is an expression of grace – it’s declaring that we cannot but only God can.
If we give our children as they ask, there will be no more connection after that.
God allows us to keep praying for something so that the connection between Him and us is always there.
If He gave us everything that we ask immediately every time we ask it, He knows that we won’t come to Him again after that.
Keep praying and you’ll see more victories in your life.
Walk with the wise who have the spirit of wisdom
Wise hearted people are those who seek for God’s wisdom.
There is a principle of God whereby to him who has, more shall be given, but to him who has but doesn’t use it, even what he has will be taken away.
This came from the lips of Jesus.
God has a plan for you in the house of God. It’s more than just knowing that you’re saved and forgiven of all your sins.
Abundance is found in the house of God.
The anointing of God makes things easy to do. What you want is God’s anointing!“And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah: And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship, To devise cunning works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass, And in cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of timber, to work in all manner of workmanship. And I, behold, I have given with him Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan: and in the hearts of all that are wise hearted I have put wisdom, that they may make all that I have commanded thee; The tabernacle of the congregation, and the ark of the testimony, and the mercy seat that is thereupon, and all the furniture of the tabernacle,” (Exodus 31:1-7 KJV)Genesis 41:30-43 – God can give rulers dreams (knowledge), but they may not have the wisdom to interpret them.
Just like how God gave Pharaoh the dream and gave Joseph the wisdom to interpret his dreams.
When you manifest God’s wisdom, the people of the world can see God’s wisdom in you.
Set aside 20% of your income as savings if God leads you. It is a principle.
“but after them seven years of famine will arise, and all the plenty will be forgotten in the land of Egypt; and the famine will deplete the land. So the plenty will not be known in the land because of the famine following, for it will be very severe. And the dream was repeated to Pharaoh twice because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass. “Now therefore, let Pharaoh select a discerning and wise man, and set him over the land of Egypt. Let Pharaoh do this, and let him appoint officers over the land, to collect one-fifth of the produce of the land of Egypt in the seven plentiful years. And let them gather all the food of those good years that are coming, and store up grain under the authority of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in the cities. Then that food shall be as a reserve for the land for the seven years of famine which shall be in the land of Egypt, that the land may not perish during the famine.” So the advice was good in the eyes of Pharaoh and in the eyes of all his servants. And Pharaoh said to his servants, “Can we find such a one as this, a man in whom is the Spirit of God?” Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Inasmuch as God has shown you all this, there is no one as discerning and wise as you. You shall be over my house, and all my people shall be ruled according to your word; only in regard to the throne will I be greater than you.” And Pharaoh said to Joseph, “See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt.” Then Pharaoh took his signet ring off his hand and put it on Joseph’s hand; and he clothed him in garments of fine linen and put a gold chain around his neck. And he had him ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried out before him, “Bow the knee!” So he set him over all the land of Egypt.” (Genesis 41:30-43NKJV)
Proverbs 13:20 –
We are not meant to live life as lone ranger Christians.
The Book of Proverbs says that in a multitude of counsellors there is safety.
That’s why care group is so important.
If the world out there can brainstorm billion dollar ideas together, how powerful would it be if the people of God come together to brainstorm ideas for God?
Wisdom is contagious.“He who walks with wise men will be wise, But the companion of fools will be destroyed.” (Proverbs 13:20NKJV)
Deuteronomy 34:9 – The spirit of wisdom can be imparted.
After this chapter is the Book of Joshua. In Joshua 1, God tells Joshua to meditate on His word and then he will have good success.
Just because you have the spirit of wisdom doesn’t mean that you don’t spend time in God’s word.
In fact, if you have the spirit of wisdom, you will treasure God’s word even more.
“Now Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom, for Moses had laid his hands on him; so the children of Israel heeded him, and did as the LORD had commanded Moses.” (Deuteronomy 34:9 NKJV)
Pigs never look up to heaven, and they eat filth and dirt.
There are lots of benefits to not eating pork, but eating pork is allowed. Pastor Prince said that having bacon once in a while is okay.
Train up your child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.
The Jews practice something with their children: they draw the words of the Torah out with honey and they let their children lick and taste it.
They want to teach their children that God’s word is sweeter than honey. That first impression with it is very important in developing in them a love for God’s word.
As long as your children are dependent on you and still living under your household, bring them to church.
Let them have a taste of God. Once they taste and know for themselves that God is real, they will believe.
That’s the best thing you can do for your child – to help them know God.
Until the age of 20, the frontal lobe of your child’s brain is not fully developed.
He or she is more emotional and not stable until then.
