Jesus’ Blood Speaks

Hebrews 12:22-24
22But you have come to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, 23to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the judge of all men, to the spirits of righteous men made perfect, 24to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.

The Blood of Christ Speaks…
  1. You have been justified.
  2. You are redeemed.
  3. You have peace with God.
  4. You are Holy.
  5. You have the promise of being equipped.
  6. Your conscience is cleansed.
  7. You are washed.
  8. You have victory.
5. You Have the Promise of being Equipped
Hebrews 13:20-21
20May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, 21equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

   A.  Knowing God’s Will
Romans 12:2 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
   B.  God’s Will
2 Corinthians 8:5 And they did not do as we expected, but they gave themselves first to the Lord and then to us in keeping with God's will.
      1.  Give Yourself to the Lord
      2.  Give Yourself to the Human Authority
   C.  God’s Will
1 Thessalonians 4:3 It is God's will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality;

Sanctified - 1 : to set apart to a sacred purpose or to religious use : consecrate 2 : to free from sin : purify 3 a : to impart or impute sacredness, inviolability, or respect to b : to give moral or social sanction to.
   D.  God’s Will
1 Thessalonians 5:18 give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
   E.  God’s Will
1 Peter 2:15 For it is God's will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish men.
   F.  God’s Equipping
2 Peter 1:3-11  3His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. 4Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.  5For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 6and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness;  7and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. 8For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.  9But if anyone does not have them, he is nearsighted and blind, and has forgotten that he has been cleansed from his past sins. 10Therefore, my brothers, be all the more eager to make your calling and election sure. For if you do these things, you will never fall, 11and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

6. Your Conscience is Cleansed
Hebrews 9:14  How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God!

Conscience - the sense or consciousness of the moral goodness or blameworthiness of one's own conduct, intentions, or character together with a feeling of obligation to do right or be good.

   1. A conscience that’s not cleansed causes a person to commit acts that lead to death. Seeing yourself as a Child of a Holy God will change the choices you make.  Identity is huge.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

   2. A conscience that’s not cleansed can’t serve the Living God.

Hebrews 10:22 let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.

7. You are Washed
Revelation 7:15 And he said, "These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore, "they are before the throne of God and serve him day and night in his temple; and he who sits on the throne will spread his tent over them.

8. You Have Victory
1 John 5:4b-6
This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. 5Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.  6This is the one who came by water and blood—Jesus Christ. He did not come by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth.

Overcoming power is opened to us through faith. Faith that Jesus is the Son of God. Believing God’s word over the circumstances of life will cause a person to have victory.

The Blood of Christ Speaks (Part 1)

by Tony Hammack

These notes are best when used in conjunction with the audio or video. Click here for the audio. Click here for the video.

Abel’s Blood Cried Out
Genesis 4:10 The LORD said, "What have you done? Listen! Your brother's blood cries out to me from the ground.

Jesus’ Blood Speaks
Hebrews 12:22-24
22But you have come to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, 23to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the judge of all men, to the spirits of righteous men made perfect, 24to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.

The Blood of Christ Speaks…
  1. You have been justified.
  2. You are redeemed.
  3. You have peace with God.
  4. You are Holy.
  5. You have the promise of being equipped.
  6. You are cleansed.
  7. You are washed.
  8. You have victory.
1. You are Justified
Romans 5:9 Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through him!

The Blood of Christ cries out, You are justified.
You are not guilty, you’ve been acquitted in the heavenly court, you’re debt has been paid by the blood of Christ. Just as if you’ve never sinned.

Romans 3:28 For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from observing the law.

Our justification comes by faith, not from observing the law. This is the same way Abraham was credited with righteousness; right standing with God.

Romans 3:24 and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.

God’s grace justifies us, paying our sin debt for us. This grace put’s us into right relationship with God as we believe on Jesus Christ by faith.

Ephesians 2:8,9
8For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9not by works, so that no one can boast.

2. You are Redeemed
Ephesians 1:7
In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace
  • Redemption - 1 a : to buy back : repurchase b : to get or win back b : to extricate from or help to overcome something detrimental c : to release from blame or debt : to clear d : to free from the consequences of sin.
1 Peter 1:18-19 
18For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, 19but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.

Redeemed from what?
Galatians 3:13-14
13Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: "Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree."[a] 14He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.

A.)  Blessings given to Abraham as well as the B.)  promise of the Spirit are the believers through faith in Christ Jesus.

A.)  Blessings

Deuteronomy 28
3 You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country. 4 The fruit of your womb will be blessed, and the crops of your land and the young of your livestock—the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks. 5 Your basket and your kneading trough will be blessed. 6 You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out.  7 The LORD will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven. 8 The LORD will send a blessing on your barns and on everything you put your hand to. The LORD your God will bless you in the land he is giving you. 9 The LORD will establish you as his holy people, as he promised you on oath, if you keep the commands of the LORD your God and walk in his ways. 10 Then all the peoples on earth will see that you are called by the name of the LORD, and they will fear you.  11 The LORD will grant you abundant prosperity—in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock and the crops of your ground—in the land he swore to your forefathers to give you. 12 The LORD will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. 13 The LORD will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the LORD your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom.

B.)  The Promise of the Spirit
Acts 2:33 Exalted to the right hand of God, he has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit and has poured out what you now see and hear.

3. You have Peace with God
Colossians 1:19,20
19For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.

Romans 5:1 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,

The Gospel message is good news. It’s allowed us to overcome the Law with it’s futility toward victorious living and given us peace with God. The peace is established by God and received by faith.

4. You are Holy
Hebrews 13:12
12And so Jesus also suffered outside the city gate to make the people holy through his own blood.

Holiness
(a) separation to God, (b) the resultant state, the conduct befitting those so separated. “Holiness" is thus the state predetermined by God for believers, into which in grace He calls them, and in which they begin their Christian course and so pursue it. Hence they are called "saints“.

Holiness Comes from the Blood
Your holiness is due to Christ’s shed blood not your behavior. However your behavior will line up with the fact that you are washed and cleansed by the blood of Christ.

Mercy

By Tony V. Hammack

These notes are best when used in conjunction with the audio or video.  Click here to listen to this dynamic message on mercy or click here to watch the video.

James 2:13 …judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment!

The Prayer Prayed in Public Schools Until June 25, 1962.
“Almighty God, we acknowledge our dependence upon Thee, and we beg Thy blessings upon us, our parents, our teachers, and our country.”
This prayer is a cry for the mercy of God.

Mercy - : compassion or forbearance shown especially to an offender or to one subject to one's power; mercy also means lenient or compassionate treatment.

Luke 6:32-38
32"If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' love those who love them. 33And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' do that. 34And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' lend to 'sinners,' expecting to be repaid in full.  35But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. 36Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.  37"Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. 38Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."

Nice but Normal
1. To love someone who loves you is human.
2. To do good to someone who does good to you is human.
3. Loaning money to someone who can pay you back is human.
Divine Behavior
4. Loving, doing good and giving money to your enemy is divine.
5. When we love the unlovable, do good to the evil and give money to those that can’t pay us back we have a great reward and demonstrate that we are truly Sons of God.
6. When we are in a life receiving relationship with Jesus Christ we will act like him more and more as we draw more and more life from him.
7. With the measure of mercy we extend to others who don’t “deserve” it, we ourselves will receive mercy from God.
  • 3 Types of Relationships
    • Take
    • Give and Take
    • Give
We all, at one time or another were takers. In order to have something to give others we must receive. However this isn’t the ultimate position we are to stay in. It’s a phase of development into maturity.

When a Child acts like a child it’s difficult but there’s an understanding that the child is developing and growing, it’s understood and accepted.
However when an adult behaves like a child it’s generally frowned upon. Sometimes this happens simply because this adult as a child missed something.

Give and take – I feel like the best illustration for the give and take relationships that Jesus is talking about in Luke 6 would be represented by the business world. “You scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours.”

1. To love someone who loves you is human, easily accomplished by sinful people every day.
Luke 6:32
"If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' love those who love them.

Many lustful relationships are built upon this paradigm of thinking and living.
However just stop adding energy or life into the relationship and you’ll see it unravel.

2. To do good to someone who does good to you is human.
Luke 6:33
And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' do that.
Again the illustration here would be a business relationship.

3. Loaning money to someone who can pay you back is human.
Luke 6:34
And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' lend to 'sinners,' expecting to be repaid in full.

4. Loving, doing good and giving money to your enemy is divine.
Luke 6:35,36
But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. 36Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.

The relationships that are truly divinely motivated and sustained are the relationships where you are on the giving end and there is no receiving in sight for your sacrifice. These relationships prove and demonstrate that you are truly a son or daughter of God.

Loving and caring for a spouse who’s been bed ridden for years while remaining faithful in mind, heart and action. DIVINE!

Staying in a marriage where you are not in “love”. Working it out together. DIVINE

Giving resources or help to someone who doesn’t appreciate it or won’t be able to pay you back. DIVINE

5. When we love the unlovable, do good to the evil and give money to those that can’t pay us back we have a great reward and demonstrate that we are truly Sons of God.

This is a very un-natural reaction or behavior however it is very natural if we’re plugged into a supernatural God.

2 Corinthians 3:18 And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.


6. When we are in a life receiving relationship with Jesus Christ we will act like him more and more as we draw more and more life from him.


John 15:4,5
4Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.  5"I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.


7. With the measure of mercy we extend to others who don’t “deserve” it, we ourselves will receive mercy from God.

Mercy comes originally from God, we extend it to others which causes more mercy to come from God. When we extend that to others it continues the process over and over again causing us to be agents of change.

In a world of hostility, we can open a spiritual floodgate by loving.  In a world that keeps score and settles resentment with vindictiveness, we can open a spiritual floodgate by forgiving. In a world where ‘what is mine is mine’ we can open a spiritual floodgate by giving to others freely. We can always wait for someone else to pick up the ball and get things started. But we know that the world is not going to become a loving place, a forgiving place, a giving place, except that we actually do it.

Does anyone want God’s Wrath?
Then we must cry out for mercy and extend mercy!
Matthew 18:32-35
32"Then the master called the servant in. 'You wicked servant,' he said, 'I canceled all that debt of yours because you begged me to. 33Shouldn't you have had mercy on your fellow servant just as I had on you?' 34In anger his master turned him over to the jailers to be tortured, until he should pay back all he owed.
35"This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother from your heart."

Consider today the position of your heart toward people who have hurt you or are against you.  Receive mercy from God and extend mercy to them.  It will change the world one person at a time.

Tithing

Once upon a time there was a man who had nothing. God gave him ten apples. God gave the first three apples to eat. God gave him three more apples to trade for shelter from the heat in the summer and the cold in the winter. Then God gave the man three more apples to trade for clothing to wear. The last apple God gave so the man might have something to give back to God to express his great gladness and gratitude at such divine provision. But this tenth apple looked so luscious, and the man reasoned that God owned all the other apples in the world and how could God miss this one measly apple, so he ate the tenth apple, and gave back to God the core.’

Overcoming Adversity

By Tony V. Hammack

These notes are best when used in conjunction with the audio or video of this message. Please click here for the audio or click here for part 1 of the video and click here for part 2 of the video.

Look at the picture to the left and consider the statement in the upper right hand corner.  "Adversity introduces a man to himself."  Consider if you believe this statement to be true and why or why not. 

Proverbs 24:10 If you falter in times of trouble, how small is your strength!

Where’s the adversity your dealing with coming from?  Is it God, the Devil, others, or self?

When dealing with adversity sometimes you will have to wait for it to pass, you may have to go over it, under it, around it or perhaps through it.

Adversity is always either a stumbling block or a stepping stone.  Which one it is for you generally depends on your attitude.

Consider what Judas did to Jesus.
In one sense of the word what Judas did could’ve crushed the majority of people. They never would’ve been able to recover from such a betrayal.  However for Jesus, Judas was simply the unwitting person that kicked Jesus into his ultimate destiny.

Key’s to Triumphing over Adversity
  1. Pray – find the will of God for your situation.
  2. Read –find a scripture to “hang your hat on” for your situation.
  3. Counsel – Seek GODLY counsel from someone you admire/respect in the spirit.
  4. Listen / Meditate / Speak the Word – When God speaks and you have a word listen to it by meditation and confession.
  5. Stand – When God’s spoken to your heart and you have a word from heaven then stand and believe.
1. Pray
Luke 22:39-44
39Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of Olives, and his disciples followed him. 40On reaching the place, he said to them, "Pray that you will not fall into temptation." 41He withdrew about a stone's throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed,  42"Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done." 43An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him. 44And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.

Luke 5:16
But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.

2. Read
Find a scripture to identify with your specific situation.
  • Sickness
  • Sorrow
  • Financial Distress
  • Bondage


  • Sickness
Psalm 118:17
I will not die but live, and will proclaim what the LORD has done.


Acts 10:38
how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him.

  • Sorrow
Galatians 5:22
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,

Isaiah 61:3
and provide for those who grieve in Zion— to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.

  • Financial Distress
Malachi 3:10
Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this," says the LORD Almighty, "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.

Luke 6:38
38Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."

  • Bondage
Psalm 118:5
5 In my anguish I cried to the LORD, and he answered by setting me free.

John 8:31,32
31To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."

Romans 6
14For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace.

3. Counsel
Proverbs 11:14
Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.

Proverbs 13:20 He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm.

4. Listen / Meditate / Speak the Word
Joshua 1:8
Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.

Mark 11:23
"I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him.

5. Stand
An example from the Old Testament
Exodus 14:13 Moses answered the people, "Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again.

Ephesians 6:13,14a
13Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14Stand firm then,

Let’s approach God today in conclusion for the wisdom, grace and strength to convert our adversities into stepping stones!

Learning Obedience

By looking into the Loving eyes of Jesus
By Tony Hammack

These notes are best when used in conjunction with the audio or video of this message.  Click here for the audio or click here for the video.

Love for God
John 14:15
"If you love me, you will obey what I command.
  • Keys to Obedience
    • Receiving Love
    • Trusting
    • Self Denial (Brings glory to the master)
Jesus is our High Priest
Hebrews 4:14-16
14Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. 15For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet was without sin. 16Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

Due to the position of Jesus we should hold firmly to our faith.  Jesus has been there and understands all our human weaknesses.  Understanding these things we need to approach God with boldness and confidence in order to receive what we need, primarily grace and mercy.

Mercy is not getting what we do deserve, judgment.
Grace is getting what we don’t deserve, power to overcome the enemy, the world system and the flesh. All of heaven’s blessings.

1. Receiving Love
Position
We as God’s people must learn to position ourselves to receive the Love of God. This is a heart condition and is learned through experience. When we wear a path to the throne room of grace we learn where the life of God flows from.


Practical Ways to Receive the Love of God
  1. Read the Word
  2. Pray
  3. Worship the Lord in Song
  4. Attend Church
  5. Attend a Life Group
  6. Fellowship with a Christian friend

1.  Read the Word
Psalm 119:11
11 I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.

The Word of God is His Heart to Us
Matthew 12:34
For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks.

Hebrews 4:12
12For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

Matthew 5:18
I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.

2.  Pray
Hebrews 5:7 (Amplified Bible)
In the days of His flesh [Jesus] offered up definite, special petitions [for that which He not only wanted but needed] and supplications with strong crying and tears to Him Who was [always] able to save Him [out] from death, and He was heard because of His reverence toward God [His godly fear, His piety, in that He shrank from the horrors of separation from the bright presence of the Father].

The Hardest thing for Jesus
Mark 15:34 (New International Version)
34And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, "Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?"—which means, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"


3.  Jesus Learning Obedience
Hebrews 5:8
