----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Testimony from Brisbane: Person was concerned about flood reports and realized that his area was

right smack in the path of it. He prayed and anointed his house with oil. His house has four levels of basement (amazing house). Was afraid that all four levels would be flooded. Areas that no one expected the floodwaters to hit were flooded. But when it came to his street, it bypassed his house but hit all the other neighboring houses. In the end, his basement was flooded only up to ankle level, and pumped dry within a few hours. Testimony from NCC: Woman suffered loud cracking noise from knees and developed acute pain. Sound was loud enough to be heard by people standing around her. She had trouble sleeping cos she had to get up every 15 mins to stretch That week, Pastor Prince led congregation in extended praise and worship and asked congregation to place hands on afflicted area. At the time, she had forgotten where it hurt and so put hand on head. So, she put her hand on the wrong part of her body, but when asked to test for improvement, she found that her knees no longer hurt! It’s not the method folks, it’s the anointing! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Pastor Prince: “Praise God. Wonderful testimonies, amen? People, every time we hear these testimonies, it is for a purpose. We want you to take all these testimonies and share with your colleagues. One of the best ways to tell people that Jesus is alive and that Jesus is doing miracles today. When you hear about Jesus, your miracle happens. Whatever the miracle may be, be it financial or physical. Like the woman with the issue of blood, when she heard things concerning Jesus, she got her healing. That’s why the pulpit is not for us to talk about psychology or - Wonderful as these things are, those scientific facts and all that, the pulpit is for unveiling Jesus to the people. Amen?”

You can look at Pastor Prince, you go back the same. You look at a king, or a prince, no transformation. Even though it’s his wedding this year… Wonderful as royalties are, you can look upon them but leave unchanged. But impossible to look at Jesus and stay the same. Bible says in 2nd Corinthians 3:18 :”But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit” You don’t struggle your way out of a bad habit. H.A.B.I.T Remove the H, you still have Abit. Remove the A, you still have Bit. Remove the B, you still have It. Remove self consciousness, the “I”, you’re left with the cross, the only way. If transformation is brought about by your efforts, then it must be maintained by your efforts. Ready for the Word? How many were blessed by last weeks sermon on Abraham and Lot? Which righteous man would you rather be? The Bible says both were righteous, but Abraham had a heart for God, Lot did not. When God blesses you, there is something to the blessing that comes from god. It makes you grateful to God and it makes you walk with God. Whereas if you chase for something, which God intended for you to have anyway, but you do it before the right time, or by your own efforts, you’ll never have a relationship with God. And the thing is that the way you obtain something is the same way you maintain something, be it your job, your position, your finances, your health. Wouldn’t you rather get it effortlessly based on a relationship with God?

Lot looked up and saw the well-watered plains of Jordan, and he wanted to possess by his own strength. But once he left, God told Abraham to look NSEW (north south east west), all that you can see I give it to you. Did you notice, that those well watered plains were within the scope of Abrahams NSEW? Abraham was promised the entire of Israel, and Sodom and Gomorrah were within the boundaries of Israel! Pastor Prince: when I was growing up, I heard sermons on “Give this up for god, give that up for God”, but no one ever told me God wanted to give me something better, something greater.”

When God wants you to give up something, it’s something that will disadvantage you, maybe not now, but in the long run. And He will give you something better than will bles you in the long run! In Abraham’s case, it was so. Abraham gave up Sodom and Gomorrah for the peace and quietness up in the mountains away from all the destruction. Abraham was well out of the way when Sodom and Gomorrah was bombed... Pastor Prince: “People don’t like to trust in God’s goodness. They trust in their own ability. “I must get all I can, and then. can all i can get, and then, sit on the can. After all its economic downturn, so I must watch out for myself, cos no one is gonna take care of me.” But hey, know that God who loves you, and is looking out for you. That’s why your car’s rear view mirror is smaller than your front wind screen. Don’t live life looking behind, looking in regret or guilt. The Lord has gone ahead of you, and has prepared his goodness in store for you. Let’s continue from where we left off last week. Remember when Lot left Abraham? BTW, Lot’s name means Veil. He represents believers who are righteous by faith but are veiled with the law. 2nd Corinthians 3:15 Yes, even today when they read Moses' writings, their hearts are covered with that veil, and they do not understand. Reading the first 5 books but not seeing Jesus, cos of the veil that holds them back from seeing what blessings God has for them. The moment the veil was removed, Abraham was told to look NSEW… All

that you

can see, I give to you!
Can you see yourself with a healthy body? Can you see yourself being successful? Can you see yourself with an intimate relationship with God? Can you see yourself crowned with Goodness this year? Or do you see yourself as “nothing good can happen to me”, as a Charlie Brown perspective? God told Abraham: I am your shield, your very great reward Abraham said:” Lord, what reward? Seeing I go childless...” So God changed his seeing.

When Sodom was under attack and taken captive, Abraham armed his 318 servants to go and they won against 4 kings! Quick calculation, assuming his servants were evenly divided to attack, it comes to 318/4 = 97.5 servants per army. It must be God! Then King Melchizedek came and brought bread and wine. Why now? Why not earlier? Cos moments before, the king of Sodom was about to speak to Abraham while he was tired and weary. King Sodom said keep all the wealth but I want the people. The Devil is not concerned about properties, gold, silver, oil. He wants people. King of Salem, Melchizedek, came bearing the Holy Communion. And Abraham partook and was strengthened. Lot was there all the time, but had no revelation of the bread and wine even though he was righteous. Abraham received the bread and the wine, that is the ministry of Healing and health. And he responded to Melchizedek with the tithe, that’s the ministry of wealth. Pastor Prince: “So Pastor Prince(breaking the fourth wall), so you believe in health and wealth? YES, guilty, 101% make no mistake about it! Anyway, if you don’t want, just pray to God to pass whatever you don’t want to me. Amen Amen Praise God.. >=D “ Tithe - maaser. ‫מעשר‬ Rich - aaser.


Difference is the mem. Personal note: Every Hebrew letter has a picture. Aleph is Ox. For Mem, it represents water. And water is associated with the Holy Spirit. Revelation: Without the Holy Spirit, you’ll never understand the tithe. After the defeat of the kings, Abraham went back home, and then God preached to him the Gospel through the constellations. Abraham believed, and God counted it to him for righteousness. Lot also went back. Back to Sodom! And in due course, Lot lost everything. What a tragedy. And all this while, God was preaching to Abraham, and Abraham knew he was righteous. Lot was righteous, but didn’t know he was righteous. When you don't know you are righteous by faith, you will waste time and energy trying to be what you already are.

One thing to fight from victory, another to fight for victory. -------------------------------------------------- PART 2 --------------------------------------------Pastor Prince: “Today, we are gonna look at the blessings of two brothers, Jacob and Esau. Who would you rather be? Eheheheh…. We know that both were twins. One was hairy, that’s esau, the other one was Chinese, that’s Jacob… smooth, and loves to cook. Definitely Chinese… okok, I know they are Israeli… this goes to Israel every night so must clarify…” So what makes the one that comes out first special is that he has the firstborn blessings. Esau was rightfully entitled to the firstborn blessings, but he had no desire for them Jacob had a heart for the blessings, but was not entitled to it, neither did he look nor act the part. So one day Jacob was cooking red lentils, and Esau came and was hungry. So Esau said: give me the red!” But Jacob said not unless you give me your firstborn right. Esau foolishly sold his right for a meal, even though its obvious he would not die from skipping a meal... Singaporeans, learn this lesson… you wont die from missing a meal… Genesis 27:26 -30

And his father Isaac said unto him, Come near now, and kiss me, my son.

Fathers, its okay to kiss your sons. Jacob was already a grown man at this time. How many of you want the BEST blessing? Are you a spiritual glutton? Are you like Jacob? Want the first born blessing? Well, read on. It is all given, not earned! Genesis 27:28 Therefore may God give youFirst part of firstborn blessings is that it is God given, and not earned by own efforts. If God gives you, no one can take away. No demon, no deacon can remove it. I want my health to be a gift from God. I want my riches to be a gift from God. I want my family to be a gift from God. Some of things you are trying to achive by your own effort, God wants to give you anyway. You waste time and effort doing it by yourself. Fitness and health are different. Fitness you sweat over. Health comes from God. There are fit men who drop dead suddenly. But it’s good to be fit also yea? In Esau’s left over blessing, God not mentioned.

Of the dew of heaven, Of the fatness of the earth, And plenty of grain and wine.

Let peoples serve you, And nations bow down to you. Be master over your brethren, And let your mother’s sons bow down to you.

The 21st century equivalent is: Let banks, corporations bow down to you!

Cursed be everyone who curses you, And blessed be those who bless you!”
Israel is still the beloved of God. Until today, any who blesses Israel is blessed. Any who curses Israel is cursed. Curse and blessing, can be verbal or written. Last year, Israel sent agents to assassinate a chief terrorist using foreign European passports, in foreign European soil. Those nations, instead of rejoicing at the removal of a chief terrorist, were more concerned about the use of their passports by Mossad agents and condemned Israel. and few months later, all those countries could not use their own passports use because of volcanic ash... Jesus said bless those who curse you, because there are repercussions for those who curse you! So Isaac blessed Jacob mistakenly, but then, blessings cannot be revoked ! After that, Esau came in, but Isaac said “I have blessed you brother and he is blessed and I cannot reverse it!!” Your blessing is irreversible!! Esau wept and asked for the leftover blessing. There is a cry in every child’s heart, wanting to be blessed by the father. Their friends can say how cool they are, how awesome, but what matters most is when the father is proud of him. When the father affirms the son, something is released.

The best has been given to Jacob. So the leftover was given to Esau. Notice this time, the bible omits the word “blessed”. Isaac only answered Esau. Genesis 27:39 And Isaac his father answered and said unto him, 'Behold, of the fatness of the earth is your dwelling, and of the dew of the heavens from above;

*Today, rabbis are divided about this verse. Some say it is “you shall dwell away from the fatness of the
earth”, some say it is “the fatness shall be your dwelling.” This is also reflected in some translations of the English Bible. Pastor Prince believes it is the latter.

It is one thing to live in the fatness, another to own the fatness. You can live in the poshest hotel, but blessed is he who owns the whole place. Esau lives in it, Jacob owns it Genesis 27: 40 By your sword you shall live, and you shall serve your brother; but when you grow restless you shall break his yoke from your neck.” Notice this time, God is not mentioned? By your sword, by your own effort. For Esau, he has to fight for a living, while Jacob has only to receive from God. People, you are of Jacob. You do not need to compete for God’s blessings. Now, turn back to Jacob’s blessings. The firstborn blessings. The best blessings. For Jacob, God gives him the dew of heaven first, then fatness of the earth. For Esau, fatness of earth comes first then dew of heaven. God wants you to have the fatness of the earth. But He rather you put the Dew of Heaven first, then fatness of the earth. So what is the dew of heaven? What is the fatness of the earth? What is plenty of grain and wine? Are they natural things? If all Jacob’s blessing are natural, you don't need firstborn blessings, just need to be a farmer. Even the ammonites, the amorites, the hittites, all heathens have the dew in the morning. All they need to do is wake up. So we understand that it is spiritual dew. Proverbs 19:12. The king’s wrath is like the roaring of a lion but the king’s favor is like dew on the grass. So Dew of Heaven, is the FAVOR OF HEAVEN!

We know that Satan goes about like a roaring lion, making believers feel like as if God is angry with them. Whenever you feel as if God is angry at you, you have just been roared at by the devil. He impersonates the king’s wrath. Church, listen. Today, the king is not angry with you. All his anger was exhausted on the cross. So what we need today is the dew of heaven! The favor from heaven! Pastor Prince: “When the dew of heaven is on your life, I’m telling you, regardless of your shortcomings, physical handicap, doesn’t matter if you’re not as pretty as your colleagues, or you maybe you’re greatly curtailed in your studies or education, but God ignores all those, and gives you the Favor of Heaven! There are so many people in this church that have experienced it! First time, inexperienced but they closed a huge deal! The world doesn’t understand! “Who is this guy? What does he have that I don’t? “ Church, you have the dew of heaven! “ When Gideon was hiding from the Midianites, God came to him and told him to rise up! He challenged God by first asking that the wool be wet with dew, and the earth be dry and God did it for him. Then he did it again! This time, the ground is wet, but the wool remains dry. That’s the gospel right there!! Before the cross, Jesus, our Lamb was dewy, while we were dry. Dry earth is dust, and the devil’s food is dust. After the cross, Jesus our Lamb was dry, and we are dewy with God’s favor!! Praise the Lord! Tell somebody! Next blessing, PLENTY OF GRAIN AND WINE! Remember that its all spiritual. So bread and wine. What is that today? Grain and wine = communion!! How do you get bread? You take the grain, you crush it, you knead it, you beat it, then you burn it with fire! That’s Jesus! How do you get wine? You take the grape, you crush it, you step on it! And what comes out is red… like blood. Communion is so important that it was the first thing that Jesus did on the first day of his resurrection.

Luke 24:30-31 When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him,
30 31

Communion opens eyes to know Jesus! So, what about the oil? Fatness of the earth = Mishman - ‫משמן‬ anointing oil shemen (olive oil) - ‫שמן‬

Once again, only difference is the Mem. So within the firstborn blessing, God hid the mystery of the Holy Communion and the anointing oil. And God said with these things you will prosper in every area of your life. “But Pastor Prince, I tried it one time, and nothing happened!” Wow… one time… you sure persevered didn’t you? Don’t just do it once. Not once a week even! The Bible says plenty of grain and wine and plenty of fatness!! We need a revelation of PLENTY!! Acts 2:46-47 So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.
46 47

Some denominations require a pastor or priest to be present, with rituals and exclusions. The early church didn’t require such things! They had communion DAILY! They had it plenty! And DAILY God added to the church. Pastor Prince: Just a few days ago, my daughter Jessica came back from school with stomach pains. I was out, my wife, Wendy was out and we both made plans to come home. But I got back first, so I asked Jessica where it hurt. She looked sick and my first reaction was to prepare to bring her to the doctor. See, earth first then heaven. Unbeknownst to me, I was still living in the realm of the leftover blessing. God wants you to live in the realm of the firstborn blessing. So I stopped and said: “Jessica, let’s take Holy Communion, ok?” So I prayed over the bread and ribena and we took it, then I took anointing oil and rubbed her stomach and let her take a nap. 15 mins later, when her mother came home, Jessica was back to her bubbly self, talking about her day, as if nothing happened.

Now, if only it was always this instant. Sometimes, it is the 3rd or 4th time. Sometimes, it is the 30th or 40th time. Sometimes it is the 300th or 400th time. But the words PLENTY means God wants us to have a HUGE and abundant revelation of this. So we have the oil, we have the plenty of grain and wine, and then people will serve you. Things will happen around you. Those who bless you will be blessed; those who curse you will be cursed. For some reason, many years ago, the Bermuda triangle was a cursed place. Many slaves died there and were tossed overboard. When evil acts occur, evil spirits love to linger. Especially in Singapore, when a murder occurs in a house, or someone dies, the property value drops. So what you should do is anoint it with oil, take communion in it, then buy! HAHA! You are never more frightening to a demon than when you are holding the grain, the wine and the oil. Think about it. The entire fall of man happened by eating. So God restores by eating also. Interestingly, ever since a group of Christians went to the triangle, they took Holy Communion there, and from that point on, there has not been a single report of disappearances in the Bermuda triangle. Now, in closing, let’s turn back to Esau. He had the fatness of the earth. Black oil. People rather have black oil than golden oil(olive oil) because of the outward benefits. Cars, houses, private jets… You see someone with a HUGE house, but you never know what goes on inside it. Like Lot, he saw the well watered plains, but never knew what went on within the city walls, and his soul was vexed daily. Meditate on Deuteronomy 7:13-15

13 And He will love you and bless you and multiply you; He will also bless the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your land, your grain and your new wine and your oil, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flock, in the land of which He swore to your fathers to give you. 14 You shall be blessed above all peoples; there shall not be a male or female tbarren among you or among your livestock. 15 And the LORD will take away from you all sickness, and will afflict you with none of the terrible diseases of Egypt which you have known, but will lay them on all those who hate you.
Your grain and your new wine and your oil Then you shall be blessed above all peoples! And there shall be none barren neither male nor female nor livestock!

Pastor Prince: “Read with me! And the Lord will take away from you some sickness? <Congregation: ALL!> A few sickness? <ALL!> Sometimes God heals some sickness? <ALL!!>” The Bible says ALL sickness is taken away from you. Deuteronomy 28:49-51 The LORD will bring a nation against you from far away, from the ends of the earth, like an eagle swooping down, a nation whose language you will not understand, a fierce-looking nation without respect for the old or pity for the young. They will devour the young of your livestock and the crops of your land until you are destroyed. They will leave you no grain, new wine or olive oil, nor any calves of your herds or lambs of your flocks until you are ruined.
49 50 51

The enemy shall first attack your grain, your new wine and the oil. It’s not a superstition when there is a revelation. There is nothing special about oil or bread or grape juice by themselves. But with revelation, they are powerful! Now, there is a chain that brings your answer to heaven, and heaven will respond. Hosea 2:8. She did not know that I gave her grain, new wine and oil, who lavished on her the silver and gold— So after the grain, new wine and oil, God LAVISHES silver and gold! Hosea 2:20-23

I will betroth you in faithfulness, and you will acknowledge the LORD.

“In that day I will respond,” declares the LORD— “I will respond to the skies, and they will respond to the earth; and the earth will respond to the grain, the new wine and the olive oil, and they will respond to Jezreel.[b] I will plant her for myself in the land; I will show my love to the one I called ‘Not my loved one. [c]’ I will say to those called ‘Not my people,[d]’ ‘You are my people’; and they will say, ‘You are my God.’”
21 22 23

For God to answer the heavens, the heavens must be asking God something. And earth asks heaven something. And the answer from the earth is to the grain, new wine and oil!! Now in closing, back to Jacob and Esau… so which you want to be? Jacob or Esau? Black oil or Golden oil? Many years after Jacob fled, now he is returning. And Esau came to meet him. And Jacob put servants in front, then Leah and her sons. Obviously he didn’t love her that much. Then Rachel and her son, Joseph, and finally himself. In case something happens, he is all he way behind! Esau said: What do you mean by all these? Jacob: It’s to find favor with you. Esau: I have enough; keep what you have for yourself! In the Hebrew, Esau said I have plenty. ‫( רעו‬rav) Notice in Esau’s words, God is not mentioned. Only Jacob acknowledged God’s hand in his wealth. Jacob said: Take my gifts because God has dealt graciously with me, for I have everything. ‫( פטל‬kol) Church, the people of the world can have plenty, but you have everything! Don’t envy other rich people because you don’t know the cost of their riches. But you are to be envied, for you have all things! Every head bowed, every eye closed. All cross this place. Jeremiah 31* Pastor Prince gave this reference, but didn’t touch on it. Maybe next week. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
