BELIEVER’S TRAINING MANUAL (Chapter 3)

Finding the Place Where It is Written About You!

Intro – We discovered last week that the primary purpose of a believer is to believe. A believer is to be like a tree planted by the rivers of water; fixed and firm, stable and established, rooted and grounded in the written word of God. As a believer, it is important and it is imparative that we open up the book. We have to reach deep into God’s word to see what God says. We have to find out what God has written about you. You have to find the place where it is written in the bible about yourself. You find yourself by finding the place where it is written about you in the bible. You find your place when you find the place where it is written about you in the bible.

TEXT - Luke 4: 14-19

14 And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about. 15 And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all. 16 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up for to read. 17 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, 18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

1. Jesus knew His designation because He was

able to find the place where it was written of

Himself.

A. He knew He was anointed

B. He knew what He was anointed to do (preach the

gospel to the poor, heal the brokenhearted,

preach deliverance to the captives and

recovering of sight to the blind, and to set

at liberty them that are bruised.)

C. He knew when He was anointed to do it. – NOW!!! (This is the acceptable year of the

Lord)

2. Jesus knew His destination, because He was able

to find the place where it was written of

Himself.

A. Sometimes your destination is not to where

but to who. (Who are you called to?)

1. He knew His destination was where ever

people were hurting. (The man in the

tombs. The woman at the well.)

B. Sometimes your destination is not to where

but to what. (What are you called to do?)

1. He knew His destination was to the cross.

(To die upon the cross to save that which

was lost. To die for our sins so we

could be born again.)

C. Sometimes your destination is not to where

but to when.

1. It’s called the appointed time (You

have an appointment with a promise

from God.

2. It’s called the set time (You set the

time. When you can believe it and you

can conceive it, then you can receive

it. It’s up to you! It’s not a

question of when will God do it. It is

a question of when will we believe. I

think it is about time we set the time.

3. Jesus knew no resignation, because He was able to find the place where it was written of Himself.
