Introduction: Rest and receive the benefits of Jesus' finished work

PLAY FROM THIS POINT
MAIN IDEA

We receive the benefits of Jesus’ finished work by resting, not striving. In this year of Rest and Acceleration, our part is to take an inward posture of rest and allow the Lord to be the One to bring about His acceleration in our lives, including accelerated healing.

key scriptures

Isa. 53:4, Matt. 8:17, Heb. 10:19–20

  • The times we are living in are the days when the rapture is imminent. Just before the Lord returns for His church, times will get very dark and iniquity shall abound (Matt. 24:12). But during these times, the Lord is also revealing to us revelations on how to receive our inheritance as believers.
  • During this time before He returns, God wants us to enjoy His gifts to us. When God made Adam and Eve, He made them last of His creation so that they could enjoy the work that He had finished. Likewise, today as believers, we are to rest and enjoy the finished work of Christ.
  • In this year of Rest and Acceleration, our part is to take an inward posture of rest and allow the Lord to be the One to bring about the acceleration. Instead of being anxious or hasty to bring about the acceleration we want to see with our own strength, let’s trust the Lord and rest in the finished work of Christ which has fully provided all we need.
  • Rest is not passivity. It is Spirit-directed activity. As you rest, the Lord will work in you, through you, and for you to bring about His acceleration in your life.
  • Isaiah 53:4 tells us that Jesus carried our griefs (‘kholee’ – diseases) and our sorrows (‘makov' – pains). Matthew 8:17 tells us that Jesus fulfilled this prophecy spoken by the prophet Isaiah when He went around healing those who were physically sick. The infirmities and sicknesses here refer to physical sicknesses.
  • In this year of Rest and Acceleration, God is restoring the tabernacle of David (a picture of the church under the new covenant of grace), and He is repairing the breaches (broken areas) in our lives (Amos 9:11 KJV). Today, we are talking about the breach in the area of health.
  • In Christ, there are not only spiritual benefits but also benefits for our souls (thoughts and emotions) and our physical bodies. The Lord wants us free from depression, anxieties, and panic attacks, and He wants us to enjoy peace in our minds and bodies. This peace comes from knowing Jesus has removed our sins. Because Jesus has removed all our sins at the cross, we can be sure that God’s righteousness is on our side and there is no divine punishment waiting for us.
  • Now, every time we approach God, we experience “a new and living way”—His divine life flowing into every part of our being (Heb. 10:19–20)!

God wants to give you the power to stay strong and resilient

PLAY FROM THIS POINT
MAIN IDEA

There is a generation in the end times who have discovered a revelation from the Lord that gives them the power to remain alive until Jesus returns. This is the revelation of Jesus’ resurrection life that belongs to us.

key scriptures

1 Thess. 4:15–18, Phil. 1:23–25, Acts 14:19–20, Phil. 3:20–21, Heb. 2:14–15

  • 1 Thessalonians 4:15–18 talks about how there is a group of people in the end times who have discovered something from the Lord that gives them the power to remain alive until Jesus returns. It is the revelation of Jesus’ resurrection life that will cause us to be alive and remain strong.
  • We can see the power of possessing the resurrection life of Christ from the life of the apostle Paul. In Philippians 1:23–25, Paul speaks of having two choices: a) to depart and be with Christ, which he thinks is far better, b) to remain in the flesh for the benefit of the church in Philippi. Paul was able to speak like he had authority over life and death because he was convicted of the power of the resurrection life of Christ. In Acts 14:19–20, we see how Paul was heavily persecuted by many Jews and eventually sentenced to death by stoning. Yet after being stoned, he got up completely well (Acts 14:20). Because he believed in the finished work of Jesus and that the same resurrection power that raised Jesus from the grave was in him, Paul remained strong and was healed even after he was heavily injured.
  • Until the rapture, where our bodies will be transformed into the likeness of the Lord’s glorious, incorruptible body (Phil. 3:20–21), God wants us to enjoy all the other blessings He has for us here on earth, and that includes healing, robust health, and long life. God wants us to live strong and healthy, and be numbered as those who are alive and remain until the rapture. 
  • Healing and wholeness are gifts God wants us to enjoy right now on this side of heaven.
  • Through His death, Jesus conquered death (Heb. 2:14–15) and freed us from the fear of physical death. The fear of death is the bottom of all fears and subjects you to bondage—you cannot live a full life when you have this fear.
  • Understanding the times we’re living in helps us to recognize how and why the devil is attacking us. The devil is out to destroy the health of God’s people so that all the giftings, anointings, and callings God has given us to bless this world will be gone.
  • In the face of this, let’s believe and rest in Jesus’ finished work. Now we have His healing, wholeness, resurrection life in us. We don’t need to be afraid!

Receive daily strength when you feed on God's Word

PLAY FROM THIS POINT
MAIN IDEA

Saturate yourself in God’s Word and see a renewal of strength, even in old age.

key scriptures

Prov. 4:20–22

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Receiving God’s promise of health and strength is a matter of faith, not a matter of increasing your good works to earn it.
  • There are men of God in recent generations who believed strongly in the atoning work of Christ covering our physical health. One of them was George Mueller, a minister of God who ran an orphanage. Through his ministry, George Mueller fed more than 10,000 orphans. Even at an old age, George Mueller remained strong without sickness and disease. When asked how he remained strong, George Mueller shared that his secret was in the recuperative power of God’s Word over all his flesh. His priority every day was to make his soul happy in the Lord!
  • One secret to being strong, even in old age, is to saturate yourself with the Word of God. Proverbs 4:20–22 tells us that God’s Word is “health (‘marpe’ – medicine)” to all our flesh. God’s Word is able to heal us not just spiritually but physically. Not only that, but it is beneficial to all—every part—of your flesh.

How to live long and live strong

PLAY FROM THIS POINT
MAIN IDEA

God wants you to be physically strong and healthy, even and especially as you advance in age.

key scriptures

  • The life of Caleb: At the age of 85, Caleb was as strong as he was when he was 40, when Moses sent him as a spy into the promised land (Josh. 14:10–12). This strength was not just spiritual strength, but physical strength for war. With the strength the Lord gave Caleb, he defeated the Anakims (giants) on Mount Hebron at 85 years old.
  • It is a misconception that God has only promised us a lifespan of 70–80 years (based on Psalm 90:10–11). This psalm was written by Moses when the children of Israel were in the wilderness and were under God’s wrath—that is why their lifespan was 70–80 years. But today, we are not under God’s wrath but under God’s favor. Because of the finished work of Christ, God has sworn that He will no longer be angry with us (Isa. 54:9).
  • In the Old Testament, under the law, the Levites (the priests) were only fit to work and perform service between the age of 25 and 50 (Num. 8:23–26) as their natural strength would start to decline after that. When we put ourselves under the law, we confine our physical strength. If we depend on our own natural strength, we will see natural degradation. It is important to live knowing we are not under the law but under grace, and therefore under the blessings of Abraham.

Receive the blessing of renewed youth through faith!

MAIN IDEA

The answer to renewed youth is not a pill or cosmetic product. Renewal of youth is a blessing that we receive by faith.

  • The blessing of renewal of youth in Abraham’s and Sarah’s lives: When Abraham was nearly 100 years old, he got a visit from the Lord and two angels. Despite his age, he was able to run to meet them (Gen. 18:1–2). When Sarah was 90 years old, long past the age of childbearing, she “received strength (‘dunamis’ – power) to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised” (Heb. 11:11).
  • It was through faith that Sarah received the power to conceive even at her age of 90. Pastor Prince goes on to share how the Lord renewed Sarah’s youth so much that Abimelech, the King of Gerar, wanted to take Sarah as his own when she was that age! The answer to renewed youth is not a pill or product. We receive this blessing by faith.
  • This is part of the blessing of Abraham that God wants us to have—health, vitality, and even beauty.

Don’t be subject to the natural effects of aging

PLAY FROM THIS POINT
MAIN IDEA

The key to resisting the natural effects of aging: behold Jesus in the Word and you will become more and more like Him—glorious, young, and healthy.

key scriptures

Deut. 34:7, Heb. 11:27, Ps. 91:16, Luke 24:16, 27, 2 Cor. 3:18, 1 John 4:17, Ps. 110:3, 2 Kings 2:9–12

KEY TAKEAWAYS
FOLLOW PASTOR PRINCE AS HE EXPOUNDS ON THESE POINTS
  • The life of Moses: Moses lived to an old age of 120 years and died without sickness, disease, or signs of aging (Deut. 34:7). Hebrews 11:27 tells us that the reason for this was that Moses “endured (‘kartereo’ – remained strong) as seeing Him who is invisible.” Moses remained strong because his eyes were fixed on Jesus.
  • Today, we see Jesus by seeing Him in the Word.
  • While Psalm 90 talks about a lifespan of 70–80 years under God’s wrath, Psalm 91 (a psalm about life under the new covenant of grace) talks about God giving us long life until we are satisfied (Ps. 91:16).
  • Psalm 91:16 says God wants to satisfy us with long life and show us His “salvation (‘Yeshua’ – Jesus).” Let’s look forward to a long and satisfying life of seeing Jesus in the Word.
  • The road to Emmaus: On the day Jesus rose from the dead, He approached two of His disciples on the road from Jerusalem to Emmaus and restrained their eyes from recognizing Him (Luke 24:16). Then to minister to their discouragement, He began to expound to them in the Scriptures “the things concerning Himself” (Luke 24:27). It was more important for them to see Him in the Scriptures than to see Him in the flesh. In doing this, Jesus gave all of us an equal chance to experience what these two disciples did. Until the rapture when we will get to see Him face to face, we have this same privilege of seeing Him in the Scriptures.
  • Every time we see Jesus, we are “being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord” (2 Cor. 3:18). “As He is, so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17). This applies to our physical bodies as well. The more we see Jesus, the more we become like Him—glorious, young, and healthy (Ps. 110:3)!
  • Elijah and Elisha: Elijah was Elisha’s mentor, and Elisha asked Elijah for a double portion of his spirit. This double portion was imparted to Elisha when he saw Elijah being taken away to heaven (2 Kings 2:9–12). After this, Elisha’s ministry grew and he did 16 miracles compared to Elijah’s 8. In the same way, when we see Jesus ascending (the glorified Christ) in the Bible, His power comes upon us.

Your body gets reinvigorated the more you see Jesus

See Jesus as you partake of the holy Communion, and you will find your physical body reinvigorated, revived, and strengthened.

  • The road to Emmaus (continued): After Jesus expounded on Himself in the Scriptures to His two disciples, they arrived at Emmaus and asked Jesus to stay with them. Jesus sat at the table with them and “He took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them (Luke 24:30). Breaking bread is a picture of the holy Communion. When we partake of the Communion, we are to discern the bread—a picture of the body of Christ broken for our healing. We are to discern that He Himself took our sickness and diseases (Isa. 53:5, Matt. 8:17), not just our sins. Then partake in faith.
  • After the two disciples saw Jesus in the Scriptures and partook of the holy Communion, they had the strength to walk all the way back to Jerusalem (Luke 24:33). They had just walked 7 miles yet still had the strength to walk another 7 miles back! They received new strength from the exposition of God’s Word and partaking of the Communion.
  • Isaiah 55:10–12 tells us that when we receive God’s Word, we will be energized and filled with peace and joy. Keep reading the Word and to listen to Christ-centered sermons that unveil Jesus to us.

Exchange your natural strength for His supernatural strength

PLAY FROM THIS POINT
MAIN IDEA

Look away from your natural circumstances and look unto the Lord with hopeful expectation. That is how you exchange your natural strength for His supernatural strength.

  • Isaiah 40:31 tells us that “those who wait (‘qavah’ — ​​look at with hope and expectation) on the Lord shall renew (‘khaw-laf’ — exchange) their strength.” When you hope in the Lord, you exchange your natural strength for His supernatural strength. This strength will cause us to run and not be weary, to walk and not faint!
  • Hebrews 12:2 tells us to be constantly “looking (‘aphoraó’ – to look away from all else) unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.” We are to look away from the things that distract us and to look attentively at Jesus with hope and expectation. When we see Him, we become like Him—not by our effort but by the Spirit of the Lord.
  • Ask God to unveil Jesus to you every time you go to the Word. When you see Jesus in the Word, He will give you practical wisdom to handle your finances, family relationships, and challenges at work, and also give you grace and strength to overcome your trials.
