IT’S ALREADY BEEN DONE
GODS DIVINE PLAN
ACTS 1:1-2 FAVORITE BOOKS IN THE BIBLE………..KNOWN AS THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES
*Birth of the church *How it functioned * Blueprints for the church today
USE ACTS, TO SHOW US, HOW, THAT HEALING IS ALREADY DONE
Acts 1:1-2 (KJV)
1 The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, REMEMBER THIS
2 Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen:
VS.1 Luke starts out referring to the FORMER TREATISE, ( gospel of Luke )
*TREATISE in the greek = log’-os SOMETHING SAID, INCLUDING THE THOUGHT & MOTIVE
MOST THINGS THAT WE DO, OR DONE WITH A MOTIVE BEHIND IT,
BUT WE MUST FIRST, HAVE A PLAN, THOUGHT, TO MAKE IT HAPPEN
THE ASSEMBLY, FIRST HAD A VISION OR MOTIVE , TO REACH THE COMMINITY
THEN, A THOUGHT, WHICH WAS A PLAN, TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN
LUKE NOT ONLY RECORDED THE ACTUAL EVENT, OR THE MININSTRY OF JESUS, IN THE GOSPEL OF LUKE
BUT HE WAS ALSO CAPTURING, THE THOUGHT & MOTIVE BEHIND IT ALL
BASICALLY ; JESUS WAS CARRYING OUT GODS DIVINE PLAN WHICH HAD 2 PARTS OR PHASES
WHAT WAS THE DIVINE PLAN OF GOD IN THIS TREATISE
- THOUGHT= HE HAD TO HAVE A PLAN, TO MAKE IT POSSIBLE
SO, BY THE CROSS, CAME = REDEMPTION, PEACE, JOY, VICTORY
DIVINE HEALTH, HEALING…..MORE
ALL THIS WAS A PACKAGE DEAL, [ GODS REDEMPTION PACKAGE ]
IT ALL CAME THROUGH THE DEATH , BURIAL & RESSURECTION OF JESUS CHRIST
WHAT YOU’VE GOT TO SEE IS, IT’S ALREADY BEEN DONE
IT WAS FULFILLED THROUGH THE MINISTRY OF CHRIST PART 1
AND JESUS CONFIRMS THIS IN
John 19:30 (KJV)
30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
WHEN JESUS CRIED OUT, IT IS FINISHED, HE WAS NOT REFERRING TO THE WHOLE PLAN OF SALVATION AS BEING COMPLETED.
HE STILL HAD TO DESCEND INTO THE LOWER PARTS OF THE EARTH AND LEAD THE CAPTIVES OUT
AS WELL AS COME BACK FROM THE DEAD AND ASCEND TO THE FATHER TO MAKE INTERCESSION FOR US
BUT WHAT HE WAS REFERRING TO, WAS THAT EVERYTHING HE HAD TO DO IN THE FLESH, WAS FINISHED
THROUGH THE DEATH, BURIAL AND RESURECTION OF CHRIST, THE ULTIMATE PRICE HAS BEEN PAID, AND PART 1 OF GOD’S PLAN IS COMPLETED AND DONE, IT IS FINISHED THANK YOU JESUS
- MOTIVE = WHAT WAS HE TRYING TO ACHEIVE
RECONNECT THE HUMAN RACE UNTO HIMSELF AND ALSO REINSTATE
SOME OF THE THINGS, MAN GAVE UP IN THE GARDEN
Matthew 9:35-38 (KJV)
35 And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
36 But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.
* TROUBLED / WEARY / CONFUSED / HELPLESS
* WHILE JESUS WAS HEALING,HE SAW GODS MOTIVE
PART 2 OF HIS PLAN, WAS HOW HE WOULD BE ABLE TO REACH THE
WHOLE WORLD WITH HIS GOSPEL
NOW KEEP IN MIND PART 1 HAD TO BE FINISHED BEFORE PART 2 COULD BEGIN, HE HAD TO MAKE A WAY, TO BE CARRIED TO WORLD
LOOK AT WHAT JESUS SAID NEXT
NOT ONLY DID GOD PUT THIS INTO THE HEART OF JESUS, NOW JESUS, IS GOING TO PUT IT INTO THE HEART OF THE DISCIPLES
37 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;
38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.
FOR 3 AND A HALF YEARS, THE HOLY GHOST HAD BEEN LIMITED TO ONE BODY , WHICH WAS IN JESUS CHRIST
* Could only be in one place at one time,
* NOW, PART 2 OF GODS PLAN,,,,WAS ABOUT TO CHANGE THAT
Acts 1:1-2 (KJV)
1 The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach,
NOW ITS TIME FOR JESUS TO FINISH THE WORK HE BEGAN IN THE GOSPELS , HOW,,,,,,,, THROUGH YOU & I
THE GREAT COMMISSION OR THE LAST STAFF MEETING
AFTER RESURECTION, BEFORE HE ASSENDED
Mark 16:15 (KJV)
15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
THE WORD GOSPEL, LITERALLY MEANS , THE GOOD NEWS.
NEWS IS SOMETHING THAT HAS ALREADY TAKEN PLACE
SALVATION IS NOT ALL THE NEWS, HEALING IS ALSO INCLUDED
JESUS HAS PAID IT FORWARD, NOTHING HAS TO HAPPEN ON GOD’S END, ITS A DONE DEAL
THAT IS THE GOOD NEWS, BELIEVE & RECEIVE WHATS PROVIDED
Mark 16:18-19 (KJV)
18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
NOW, LETS LOOK AT LUKE’S REFERANCE TO THE LAST STAFF MEETING
Acts 1:4 (KJV)
4 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.
IT WASN’T OPTIONAL
*Before you go into all the world and preach the gospel
*Before you teach Sunday school
*Before you take any position in the church
*Before you even witness
HE COMMANDED THEM, IT IS ESSINTIAL FOR YOU TO BE
FILLED WITH THE HOLY GHOST, IT IS PART 2 OF HIS PLAN
SO GOD CAN WORK THROUGH YOU, AND CARRY OUT HIS PLAN.
THE CHURCH TODAY HAS MADE IT AN OPTIONAL THING, YOU RARLY HEAR IT PREACHED (WE DO HEAR IT HERE @ THE ASSEMBLY)
SKIPPING THIS VITAL STEP, IN GODS INSTRUCTIONS, HAS AFFECTED THE CHURCHS ABILITY, OF CARRYING OUT THE GREAT COMMISSION THAT JESUS GAVE US.
ALL THIS CAME TO PASS, IN ACTS 2
Acts 2:1-4 (KJV) PENTECOSTAL NATIONAL ANTHEM
1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
THIS IS JUST A QUICK OVERVIEW OF GOD’S DIVINE PLAN FOR MANKIND
ITS ALREADY BEEN DONE, PERFECT-COMPLETE-FINISHED
GOD HASN’T DONE ANYTHING ELSE UP TO NOW, AND WILL NOT DO ANYTHING ELSE UNTIL HIS RETURN,
JESUS IS NOW FINISHING WHAT HE STARTED BOTH TO DO AND TEACH IN ACTS 1;1
HOW, THROUGH HIS CHURCH
GOD HAS PROVIDED EVERYTHING , AND HAS DELEGATED THE AUTHORITY AND POWER FOR US TO CARRY OUT HIS PLAN INTO THE WORLD,
SO, AS WE DO THIS
WE’VE GOT TO STOP ASKING GOD TO DO SOMETHING , THAT HE HAS ALREADY DONE & PROVIDED
AND REALIZE, THAT GOD’S PLAN SAYS NOW,, HE WILL DO IT THROUGH HIS CHURCH, THROUGH, YOU & I
NOW PART 2 OF HIS PLAN IN COMPLETE, ON HIS END, WE MUST YIELD
NOW LETS TAKE ALL THIS, AND WATCH PAUL TEACH THIS SAME TRUTH, TO THE EPHESIANS, IN A DEEPER FORMAT
AND TIE END THE FACT, IT’S ALREADY BEEN DONE.
PAUL, SPENT THE FIRST 14 VERSES TELLING THE EPHESIANS WHAT GOD HAS ALREADY DONE FOR THEM, [PAST TENCE]
10 TIMES IN CHAPTER 1 HE USED HATH/HAVING
Ephesians 1:3 (KJV)
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
Ephesians 1:3 (GW)
3 Praise the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! Through Christ, God has blessed us with every spiritual blessing that heaven has to offer.
PAUL IS DESCRIBING IN ONE SENTENCE; WHAT IS ALREADY OURS.
THESE ARE NOT BLESSINGS TO BE SOUGHT AFTER, BUT RATHER BLESSINGS TO BE DISCOVERED & ENJOYED OR BENEFITED FROM, AND TO SHARE
THIS IS THE RESULTS OF THE VICTORY, THAT JESUS WON AT CALVARY, FOR US
WE DONT HAVE TO WIN THE VICTORY [ALREADY DONE] BUT WE DO HAVE TO EXCEPT AND ENFORCE THE VICTORY
KNOW IT, BELIEVE IT, AND RECIEVE IT
( REMEMBER ) YOU CANT BELIEVE SOMETHING, YOU DONT KNOW
KEEP IN MIND, THESE ARE THE SAME THINGS THAT LUKE WAS WRIGHTING ABOUT IN ACTS 1:1, OF ALL THAT JESUS BEGAN TO DO AND TEACH
NOW, LETS LOOK HOW THAT PAULS PRAYER WAS FOR THEM TO SEE THIER BLESSINGS THEY ALREADY HAD
Ephesians 1:17 (KJV)
17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
You cannot get a revelation of something that doesn’t already exist.
THE GREEK WORD “APOKALUPSIS”, USED HERE TO TRANSLATE “REVELATION”
IT IS DERIVED FROM THE GREEK WORD THAT MEANS, TO TAKE OFF THE COVER
OR MAKE KNOWN WHAT WAS HIDDEN
Paul wasn’t praying for the Lord to give us anything new. He was praying for us to receive a revelation of what is already ours
The Christian life is not an attempt to get more faith, more anointing, or to get closer to the Lord. We already have ALL these things in their fullness
REMEMBER, WE’RE BLESSED WITH ALL HEAVEN HAS TO OFFER
We just need a revelation of what is already ours, THATS BEEN DEPOSITED IN OUR SPIRIT
AND IT STARTS BY
SIMPLY KNOWING, WHO & WHAT, IS IN YOU, WHO IS JESUS, WHAT IS JESUS
John 14:6 (KJV)
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
PROVIDER, PROTECTOR, SALVATION, PEACE COMFORTER,
MY LORD & MY GOD,,,,,,,,,,,,, HEALER
IF JESUS IS IN YOU,,,THEN HEALING IS IN YOU
HANG ON TO YOUR HATS ( BELIEF SYSTEM )
Hebrews 13:5 (KJV)
5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
John 6:35 (KJV)
35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.
THESE VERSES DON’T LINE UP WITH WHAT WE SING AND SAY, HOW WE WANT MORE OF GOD,
WE JUST NEED TO , GET TO KNOW HIM THAT IS ALREADY IN US, THATS HOW YOU GET MORE OF GOD
PAUL’S PRAYER, WAS FOR US TO GET A REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST
WE PRAY FOR REVIVAL, SEND DOWN THE RAIN, GODS ALREADY HERE, HE WILL NEVER LEAVE US
REVIVAL, IS WHEN WE GET A REVELATION OF WHAT WE ALREADY GOT
WE SEE SOMEONE SHOUT, CRY OR GET HAPPY, OH GOD HAS COME, HE’S HERE
NOPE, HE’S BEEN HERE THE WHOLE TIME, THEY JUST BROKE THE DAM
GOD HAS GIVEN US EVERYTHING WE CAN EVER NEED,
AND HIS NAME IS JESUS CHRIST, THE REDEMTION PACKAGE
TELLS US THAT WE HAVE, RAISING FROM THE DEAD POWER, IN US
1 John 4:4 (KJV)
4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
GOD IN YOU IS====HEALING IN YOU
GOD HAS DEPOSITED IT ALL INTO OUR SPIRIT, ALL WE MUST DO, IS DRAW IT OUT, INTO THE PHYSICAL, SOULISH REALM, JOHN
HOW, BY THE RENEWING OF OUR MINDS
Understanding this takes a lot of frustration and doubt away.
DON’T YOU THINK IT WOULD BE EASIER TO RELEASE SOMETHING, WE ALREADY HAVE
than to try to get something that we don’t have
YOU JUST GOT TO KNOW, WHAT YOU GOT
CAUSE ,YOU CAN’T BELIEVE SOMETHING YOU DONT KNOW
Ephesians 1:18 (KJV)
18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
THIS IS SIMILAR TO WHAT HAPPENED TO ELISHA’S SERVANT
2 Kings 6:16-17 (KJV)
16 And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.
17 And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.
NOW, PAUL WAS PRAYING THAT THE EYES OF OUR UNDERSTANDING WOULD BE OPENED SO THAT WE CAN SEE WHAT WE ALREADY HAVE IN OUR BORN-AGAIN SPIRITS
THE GREEK WORD “DIANOIA”, WHICH WAS TRANSLATED “UNDERSTANDING” IN THIS VERSE, MEANS “DEEP THOUGHT”,
IT WAS ALSO USED IN LUKE , FOR “IMAGINATION” Luke 1:51
THE PHRASE ” EYES OF YOUR UNDERSTANDING ” IS A METAPHOR REFERRING TO THE ABILITY TO PERCEIVE WITH THE MIND.
JUST AS WE CAN’T SEE WITH OUR PHYSICAL EYES , IF WE HAVE THEM CLOSED, SO NONE OF US CAN SEE WITH OUR UNDERSTANDING IF OUR MINDS ARE CLOSED.
WE HAVE TO HAVE OUR UNDERSTANDING OPENED BY THE LORD TO PERCEIVE, SPIRITUAL TRUTH
Luke 24:45 (KJV)
45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,
Our way of thinking has to be illuminated in order to come to a more accurate and thorough knowledge of God. In fact, spiritual mindedness is the only way to true life and peace
Romans 8:6 (KJV)
6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
AND THE RENEWING OF OUR MINDS, IS THE WAY TO KNOWING THE PERFECT WILL OF GOD
Romans 12:2 (KJV)
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
AND THIS CAN ONLY BE DONE, THROUGH THE WORD, AS GOD OPENS OUR SPIRITUAL EYES, TO UNDERSTAND IT
The end result of this wisdom and revelation was that the Ephesians might know (1) “the hope of his calling,” (2) “the riches of the glory of his inheritance,” and (3) “the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward.” Without a revelation from God, no one can realize these blessings.
Ephesians 1:19-20 (KJV)
19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,
20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
This exceeding greatness of God’s power is towardS us. WHICH MEANS, ITS FOR US & OUR BENEFIT
Paul was praying that we would get a revelation of the power that we already have. It’s the same power that raised Christ from the dead. That’s all we need.
WE have raising-from-the-dead power on the inside of us. We just need to realize it’s there and learn how to use it.
Philemon 1:6 (KJV)
6 That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.
The word “communication” means the release, transferal, or transmission of our faith begins to work, when we acknowledge all of the good things that are in us in Christ Jesus.
THE RELEASE OF OUR FAITH, WILL NOT BE EFFECTIVE,
UNTIL WE RECOGNIZE ALL THE GOOD THINGS IN OUR BORN-AGAIN SPIRITS.
WHEN WE BEGIN TO LEARN WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO US IN THE SPIRIT , OUR FAITH WILL EXPLODE
BECAUSE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF OUR FAITH WILL ONLY INCREASE PROPORTIONAL TO OUR KNOWLEDGE.
REMEMBER LAST SESSION
YOUR FAITH, BEGINS & ENDS WHERE THE WORD OF GOD IS KNOWN
IT IS NOT ABOUT WHAT WE MUST DO,
BUT IT’S ALL ABOUT WHAT HAS ALREADY BEEN DONE, IN US & FOR US THANK YOU JESUS
FINISH READING EPH. 1
Ephesians 1:20-23 (KJV)
20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,
23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.
Paul stated, “The church is Christ’s body, the completion of him.
Just as a ship is not complete without its crew, or a king is not complete without his kingdom, Jesus Christ has chosen to be incomplete without His church, “his body, filled with himself”
HERE IS WHERE IT ALL COMES TOGETHER
Ephesians 2:1-6 (KJV)
1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
3 TIMES, TOGETHER IS USED, DESCRIBING OUR
UNION WITH CHRIST
NOTICE, “MADE US SIT”, “QUICKENED US”, “RAISED US”
TOGETHER TOGETHER TOGETHER
KINDA SOUNDS LIKE WE’RE JOINT-HEIRS WITH CHRIST OR SOMETHING….LOL
ALLTHESE INDICATE SOMETHING THAT GOD HAS ALREADY ACCOMPLISHED IN CHRIST, NOT SOMETHING THAT IS OFF IN THE FUTURE
THEY NOT ONLY INDICATE LOCATION, BUT ALSO TELLS OUR POSITION OF AUTHORITY
WE ARE TO EXERCISE THIS AUTHORITY AS WE PREACH THE GOSPEL, INCLUDING HEALING THE SICK & CASTING OUT DEVILS
- FINSIHED / POSSIBLE
- FINISHING HIS WORK THROUGH US
Acts 3:6 (KJV)
6 Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.
