The Last Words of 23!

The last words of 2023

Palms 123: 1,2,3

I lift up my eyes to you, to you whose throne is in heaven.


As the eyes of slaves look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a maid look to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the LORD our God, till he shows us his mercy.


Have mercy on us, O LORD, have mercy on us, for we have endured much contempt.

Contempt means to be disregarded as worthless

To be cancelled

You have to Be determined to finish well

John 4:34 

Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work.

Dec. 31, 2123, marks a new beginning. One, that asks us to “transform and progress with the times and in the right place to embrace what is coming to us,”

A year not to play it safe, not to avoid scary things

A year to know Psalm 23—to know that death cannot be avoided, death must be conquered and overcome.

– Jesus has already overcome death!

“This is a year where death, hell, and the grave have to be dealt with. They have to be dealt with in you, in your house—it has to be dealt with.”

– Pastor Troy Brewer

“You don’t just let it [death] slide anymore. You say ‘This thing is death, it doesn’t glorify the Lord, and I’m going to deal with it…’ Get tired of it coming after you and instead go after it and root it out. – Pastor Troy Brewer

“I’m not avoiding death! As a matter of fact, I die daily!” – Pastor Troy Brewer

“Death” in the NT 138 times (CSB Translation)

138 = 6 x 23

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

Jesus STILL delivers us from death!!!

– John 5:24 NKJV

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.

  • John 8:51 NKJV

Most assuredly, I say to you, if anyone keeps My word he shall never see death.”

  • 2 Corinthians 1:9-10 NKJV

Yes, we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves but in God who raises the dead who delivered us from so great a death, and does deliver us; in whom we trust that He will still deliver us.

– A year to Fear the Lord – 2023

“Lord, I can say ‘be brave, be brave, be brave… have hope, have hope, have hope…’ but how do I teach that?”

  • Pastor Troy Brewer

Jesus – “Tell them to love Me. And tell them to fear Me.”

Fear the Lord: loyalty to Jesus; love what He loves, hate what He hates.

– A year to Recalibrate – 2023

  • Just 1˚ off can result in disaster

  • Know & Memorize the word of God

  • Die daily & lay down selfish agendas for the Kingdom of God—“kingdom” found 365 in NKJV Bible

  • Availability to the Lord

  • Psalm 23


Damar Hamlin – #3 – famous for good works & love of kids, died on the field.

  • everyone prayed & cried out to God
  • witnessed his resurrection (twice)
  • Buffalo Bills (Buffalo run towards/through storms instead of avoiding them)

“When everyone stopped their games and gathered together and humbled themselves before Almighty God & cried out” – Pastor Troy Brewer

WOKE folks demand “you can’t pray” yet when all hell breaks loose in their arenas, when they need the power of God in their arenas they cry, PLEASE PRAY!


  • Resurrection Power
  • Power of Baptism (fire or water)

“Damar Hamlin’s recovery proves we’re seeing God answer prayer in realtime.” – Quote

“God is speaking in a different way than He did pre-covid [24 – new ear for the new year] and He’s moving in a different way. It doesn’t mean He’s not moving. It doesn’t mean He’s not there. It means you’ve got to MOVE.” – Pastor Troy Brewer
