Remind yourself that you are the righteousness of God in Christ.
Our sins are not just covered—they have been removed. There is still sin IN our flesh, but God does not see sin ON us.
Atonement just means a covering. Jesus is the Lamb of God who took away the sins of the world.
Israel changed gods and started to offer their sons to Molech instead of the sin offering of the lamb to the true God. When Israel did this, they were brought into Babylonian captivity. After Israel came back from Babylon, they never went back to idolatry.
People have this bad trait of wanting things they cannot have and discrediting what they do have. This is of the flesh.
Proverbs 4:20-23 – Firstly, God’s word enters the ear gate. It also enters the eye gate. These gates are what allows entry into your heart.
In all your guarding, guard your heart as the most important thing. Let God’s word enter your heart and it will be health to all your flesh.
The “heart” here spoken of is “lev” in Hebrew, not “ruach” which is spirit. Your heart is not your spirit.
“My son, attend to my words. Turn your ear to my sayings. Let them not depart from your eyes. Keep them in the center of your heart. For they are life to those who find them, and health to their whole body. Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it is the wellspring of life.” (Proverbs 4:20-23 WEB)
Genesis 6:5 – The word “imagination” here is “yeser” in Hebrew. The imaginations in one’s heart will eventually manifest in the outside.
“Yahweh saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of man’s heart was continually only evil.” (Genesis 6:5 WEB)
Being saved in Christ is like being inside Noah’s ark. Even if you fall, you fall safely within the Ark. There is security in Christ.
The Lord said to Noah, “come into the Ark.” After that, He said, “Go outside the Ark.” This is the mark of a leader—first one in and last one out.

Meditate on the word pictures in God’s word. Let them enter your heart
Ephesians 1:17-18 – King Solomon is still the richest man that ever lived, considering inflation and all that. Solomon asked God for wisdom and a hearing heart.
The eyes of your heart is referring to seeing in your imagination. With God, imagination is creative—not just an inconsequential thing.
Jesus said when a man looks at a woman to lust, he is already committing the sin of adultery.
“that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him; having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope of his calling, and what are the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,” (Ephesians 1:17-18 WEB)
Genesis 2:7 – The word “formed” here is also “yeser” in Hebrew. Imagination is creative.
“Yahweh God formed man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” (Genesis 2:7 WEB)
When you pray, be alert to the pictures that come up in your imagination (heart). The Holy Spirit speaks through pictures.
The Bible is full of pictures that we can meditate on. God’s word says that we are like trees planted by the streams of water. We are not just wild plants—we are lovingly planted by the Lord.
Genesis 3:6-7 – The devil through the serpent painted a picture for Eve in her imagination.
When man sinned, he forfeited the glory of God. Adam and Eve were once clothed with the glory of God.
God wanted their spiritual eyes to be opened through the tree of life (a picture of Christ), not by the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
“When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took some of its fruit, and ate; and she gave some to her husband with her, and he ate it, too. Their eyes were opened, and they both knew that they were naked. They sewed fig leaves together, and made coverings for themselves.” (Genesis 3:6-7 WEB)
Genesis 13:14-18 – God meant for Abraham to see himself walking through the whole land in his imagination—not walking physically.
“Yahweh said to Abram, after Lot was separated from him, “Now, lift up your eyes, and look from the place where you are, northward and southward and eastward and westward, for all the land which you see, I will give to you, and to your offspring forever. I will make your offspring as the dust of the earth, so that if a man can count the dust of the earth, then your offspring may also be counted. Arise, walk through the land in its length and in its width; for I will give it to you.” Abram moved his tent, and came and lived by the oaks of Mamre, which are in Hebron, and built an altar there to Yahweh.” (Genesis 13:14-18 WEB)
Psalm 144:12-15 – See your children as these pictures. You will enjoy prosperity from the Lord. Meditate on these word-pictures in Scripture. Use your imagination to see yourself possessing what God promises in His word.
“Then our sons will be like well-nurtured plants, our daughters like pillars carved to adorn a palace. Our barns are full, filled with all kinds of provision. Our sheep produce thousands and ten thousands in our fields. Our oxen will pull heavy loads. There is no breaking in, and no going away, and no outcry in our streets. Happy are the people who are in such a situation. Happy are the people whose God is Yahweh.” (Psalms 144:12-15 WEB)
All My Sermon Notes eBooks
Some people don’t buy any sermons because of ‘choice paralysis’. There’s so many messages to choose from, but they don’t know which one they want to get. Even if they bought all the sermons, few people have the time to watch 300 hours worth of sermons to see which messages they like.
If you were to buy each sermon at $10, you’d have to spend approximately $3000 or more to get all the sermons in this collection.
Get all my 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020 sermon notes in a downloadable and printable eBook format for only US$39 (limited time sale price). That’s 7 books in total!
They were meticulously compiled and they are the precious fruit of many hundreds of hours of work since 2014. If you knew exactly how much work and heart went into it, you would say that it’s too reasonably priced!
These sermon notes eBooks are easy to read. You can finish reading the points of each sermon in under 10 mins. They can act as a catalogue for you to browse through the sermons and see which ones you want to purchase. After reading the points, you may want to buy the sermon so you can hear exactly how the point was delivered by the speaker.
You can enjoy these sermon notes eBooks even without internet connection and if you’re like me who likes reading physical books, you can print them out and even make your own annotations on them during your personal Bible study time with God.
You will also receive the subsequent years’ sermon notes eBooks whenever it is ready… so that means 2021, 2022, 2023, and so on!
Testimonial about Milton’s sermon notes:
“Milton Goh my brother, your insight on Grace has set me free from 20 yrs of addiction. I was a 7 time felon but by the GRACE of God I am now an ordained minister. Here is some of my story: I was saved in Dec 2016 and started evangelizing in July of 2017 as soon as I was released. My ministry has led over 800 to Jesus. I go to jails, rehabs, homeless shelters plus numerous churches! Your notes and sermons allowed me to find rest in Jesus. I was getting tired trying to perform what I thought God needed from me. You have made me realize it’s 100% the CROSS and now I go constantly for Jesus but never get tired. Thanks for your wisdom and love for Jesus. May God bless you and your family!”
– Michael from Cumberland, Kentucky, USA
“Very encouraging simplified sermons. Needed it especially when I cannot attend church due to family commitments. They heighten my knowledge of God. God is good all the time! Thanks for sharing this Milton. May the Lord bless you.”
– Nicole Ng, Singapore
“I write with heartfelt thanks to the man of God (Milton Goh) for having developed the idea of giving a chance to a people you didn’t know but thought that they needed this wonderful and amazing message of GRACE. Indeed I Moreen (Ugandan) plus my other fellow brethren from different countries and continents are being blessed. Our hopes are raised high, the guilt and condemnation disappear, our fears and insecurities go despite the surrounding circumstances when we reach out to your blog.”
– Mukyala Moreen, Uganda
“Hi Mr. Milton Goh, first of all I would like to say “Praise God and thank you so much Mr. Milton. You are such an answered prayer for me. I was really blessed by your blog. It opened my mind to the reality that there is still more than I can do for my Savior. Your blog melted my heart so much for God and pushed me to desire Jesus more. Your powerful notes anointed by the Lord through the Holy Spirit that you have shared will greatly help me for the expansion and growth of my ministry as well as my relationship with my God. I pray that God will continue to use you to inspire, motivate and uplift dying souls. I pray and I believe some day in the future I will be given a chance to encounter a (real encounter) with a servant of Jesus like you. Be richly blessed by God Mr. Milton and your family as well.”
– Christine from Makati City, Philippines
“Yours are the best I have ever seen! They should be the official church sermon notes! … I need to share again. This is written by a young man at NCC Pastor Prince epic amazing sermon notes!

Thank you for being such a blessing to my family by reading my Christian content and purchasing my products. I write freelance full-time and am the main caretaker to my 4 year old daughter, so your seed sown allows me to keep writing content for Jesus’ glory, to build up the body of Christ and for the Gospel to reach unbelievers who are yet to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
My website receives hundreds of thousands of page views a year, and my Facebook page’s posts reach millions of users a year. Every view is a precious seed of the Gospel sown in a person’s heart, and knowing that keeps me going, even on days where it feels like what i’m doing seems insignificant or a waste of time.
All these labors to study God’s word and reach the world for Jesus takes both time and money, so thank you once again for being a co-partner in this mission.
Messiah’s Miracles—The Power of Having Faith in Jesus Christ
The Bible clearly reveals God’s will for every believer to walk in the miraculous. If you’re tired of a Christian walk that has no evidence of God’s manifested power, all it takes is to replace some wrong beliefs so that unbelief can be cast out. This is what I believe the Holy Spirit wants to do through this book.
Under the New Covenant of Grace, every blessing is received by faith. Faith comes by hearing about Jesus and this book is all about Jesus and designed to impart faith to the reader. During Jesus’ ministry on earth, He didn’t work any miracles by His own authority as God. He relied completely on faith in His Father and the power of the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit purposefully chose 37 of Jesus’ miracles to be recorded in the four gospels. This is no coincidence. Each miracle reveals something powerful about our Lord Jesus. As you behold Jesus’ love, grace and mercy expounded in these 37 miracles, I believe that you will see miracles erupt in your own life!
Testimonials from readers:
“One of my most trusted teachers has truly written a masterpiece. I can’t put this book down.”
– Michael Clark, Highly Sought-After Preacher in USA
“Thank you, Milton for the anointed sharing of the 37 miracles of Jesus. Right from the 1st miracle, God dropped fresh revelations of His heart to me. It wasn’t head knowledge that I experienced. I felt His personality, His loving heart’s intents towards me. On top of that, there’s also revelation of His healing power. Praise Jesus for transforming my heart and bringing me closer to Him through Milton’s sharing.”
– Ann Tan, GEM patron from Singapore
Younger and Younger: 31 Days of God’s Youth Renewal Promises
Starting from the rhema word that the Holy Spirit gave to me, “Younger and Younger”, revelation flowed and became an invitation to whosoever would consistently participate in the process, to embark on a life-transforming youth renewal journey. The power and authority for this blessing comes from the rhema word.
Through the truths shared in this book, across a period of 31 days, you will return to the days of your youth, becoming even healthier, stronger and more beautiful than before. It is never too late.

Testimonials for “Younger and Younger”:
“I have been speaking the youth declarations in the book. The other day when I had lunch with a friend, we bumped into her friends who thought that I am my friend’s daughter; we are about 10 years difference of age. Praise the Lord for His renewal!” – Ann Tan from Singapore
“After embarking on “Younger and Younger” for the day, I managed to run about 3.2 km which I normally can’t. I realized that it’s the kind of distance I ran during the days of my youth; I am seeing that God is multiplying my days to be more youthful, healthier, and stronger. Praise Jesus! Thank you brother Milton for obeying Jesus and taking us on this journey.” – Alwin Seeni from Singapore
Silencing the Serpent: How Christians Can Be Victorious in Spiritual Warfare
Reviews about “Silencing the Serpent”:
“Milton Goh, I downloaded your book and it was God’s appointed time for my breakthrough. He destroyed a stronghold in my life that was rooted on a lie. A light just went on in an instant and the Lord uprooted a wrong belief. I struggled now for years with a relationship and I believed a lie that a sin I committed in the past was unforgivable, and I judged the other person for the same sin. It was unconscious and I didn’t know that I was bound by this lie. When I read a chapter in this book, about strongholds in the mind, the Holy Spirit revealed it to me in a flash and it was as if the walls of Jericho were tumbling down! Thanks for this book–it is from the Lord!” – Antoinette Hurter Keyser from South Africa
“A short testimony to share after reading the chapter about girding up our loins with the TRUTH. After reading it, I met some of my colleagues and the first thing they told me was, “You are fat, you put on weight,” not even “Hi, hello, how are you…” At first, I was sad over the remarks. But almost immediately, I was reminded of truth of God’s Word which says that “I am highly favored, beloved of Jesus, and Jesus sees me as fit and healthy. I am not defined by what others say, but by what Jesus says!” After that, I carried on with work and went for my run and managed to complete close to 5km. Something which I have never done before. All praise and glory to Jesus. Thank you, brother Milton for your teaching on the armor of God shared in this book! – Alwin Seeni from Singapore
“Thank you brother Milton. Your insights are a blessing. God bless you with many more beautiful revelations.” – Shirley Thomas from India
All Things Made New: How to Prosper in All Things Through God’s Restoration
When God restores, He adds His shalom (all-encompassing prosperity), to that area of loss. No matter how you have lost, you will become a gainer through God’s restoration. As you receive wave after wave of restoration, you will prosper and eventually become very prosperous. This revelation is what inspired this book. At that time, the Holy Spirit said that God wants to prosper us in all things through His restoration. He is putting what is broken and missing back to their ideal places in your life. God will rearrange things for your good.
After you overcome each challenge, God does not leave you as broken pieces. He restores you by putting you back together and sealing the cracks with gold—the workings of His Grace. You become more precious and valuable than if you did not go through hardships.
The Japanese art of Kintsugi is a perfect illustration of this. The practitioner takes a broken earthen vessel, assembles the pieces, and literally seals the cracks with gold. It is restored as a beautiful art piece, more valuable than before it was broken.
Are you ready to discover how God’s restoration works, and how you can even become a gainer in the area of your most painful loss?
A peek at the chapter titles:

Parting Words (Special Prayer for Restoration)
Here is a testimony shared by one of my readers about “All Things Made New”:
“I am truly blessed and learnt so much from “All Things Made New”. Recently, I had the privilege to minister to one of my family members, who had fallen into sexual sin and was feeling condemned. I assured that person that Jesus is more than able to restore what was lost and reminded of His love and grace towards this person. Moreover, I was able to use what you had taught and put some into my assignments for my counselling modules. Thank you, brother Milton for this teaching. I would not have been able to do the former without these devotionals. Thank you and may Jesus continue to bless you and your family and grant you wisdom to write more. Amen!” – Alwin Seeni from Singapore

I highly recommend purchasing Pastor Prince’s sermons on his mobile app “Joseph Prince” on Apple App Store or Google Play Store even after you read these notes as I may have missed out something he shared and the overall experience is definitely different when you listen to him preaching directly!
Use these notes as a revision guide instead of solely depending on them!
These sermon notes are independently-compiled by me, and I’m just a loyal and regular attendee of the the church’s Sunday services, and I feel led to take detailed personal sermon notes of Pastor Prince’s anointed messages to share them with the world, which desperately needs the true word of God and the original gospel of grace.
I feel blessed to be able to attend Pastor Joseph Prince’s services in person, and would like to help everyone who isn’t able to attend in person, to get hold of the messages as soon as it is preached!
Many blessings and thanks to Justina Ng, Shirley Thomas, and Terence So for supporting this blog as our Superabundant Grace tier patrons!
