Matthew 4:4 New King James Version (NKJV)
4 But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ ”
Matthew 4:4 New King James Version (NKJV)
4 But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ ”
Acts 1:8 New King James Version (NKJV)
If Jesus told the disciples that they needed to wait to receive this power from on High to do what they were called to do, Isn’t a good idea we wait to? Receive the same power that enabled and equipped Jesus Himself to do what HE did today. Don’t wait, receive one of the most beautiful gifts the Father provided, The Gift of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues.
Acts 20:7 New King James Version (NKJV)
7 Now on the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul, ready to depart the next day, spoke to them and continued his message until midnight.
We believe the holy Communion is more powerful than any medicine, any medical procedure, any antibiotic, and any chemotherapy used to heal our bodies. Why, we believe the holy Communion is the proverbial “fountain of youth” mankind has been in search of for generations and why we believe every time we partake of it, we are causing our youth to be renewed like the eagle’s (Ps. 103:5).
The earth has been under a divine judgment ever since Adam sinned. Aging, disease, and death are all part of this divine sentence.
The holy Communion is a supernatural channel for His health and wholeness to flow into our bodies. While the world is getting weaker and sicker, I believe we are getting stronger and healthier each time we partake of the Communion by faith!
If people today knew the magnitude of the power contained within the Lord’s Supper, they would be like the early church, partaking of the Lord’s Supper as often as they could and receiving as many of His benefits as they could. We have been robbed, people! It’s time to wake up!
Romans 6:23 New King James Version (NKJV)
COMPLETELY FORGIVEN, ALWAYS ACCEPTED
If you’ve made HIM LORD of your life then you obtained eternal life and HE exchanged HIS life for your life. This means that you died with HIM and rose with HIM. Romans 6:8-10 8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, 9 knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. 10 For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God.
Coming to this realization that HE completed you and made you dead to sin brings freedom like never before. The idea that you have to do anything other than rest in what HE did is nothing more than the religion that JESUS rebuked and rejected. Learn to rest in HIS FINISHED WORK and enjoy all the benefits that HE paid for and accomplished on your behalf.
2 Peter 3:9 New King James Version (NKJV)
CHANGE YOUR MIND
The word “repentance” in the New Testament is the Greek word metanoia, which simply means “a change of mind.” Meta means “change” and noia refers to your mind. The religious spirit and people who operate by it want you to have the idea that repentance means begging and pleading with God to forgive you. It wants you to condemn yourself until you feel you have sufficiently earned God’s forgiveness.
Can you see how man-centered teachings on contrition and repentance can sound so good, but in reality trap people in a permanent cycle of defeat and hypocrisy? The truth is, if you are a new creation in Christ, you already hate the sin and the wrongdoing. It troubles your soul, and you are looking for a way out of your bondage.
Repentance in this situation is not about beating yourself up over those thoughts. I used to do that and it only left me more oppressed and defeated.
No, give them no room to flourish by ignoring them while you continue to be established and secure in your identity in Christ. Fill your mind with His thoughts, His living Word, His peace, His joy, and His love.
Proverbs 23:7 New King James Version (NKJV)
7 For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. “Eat and drink!” he says to you, But his heart is not with you.
How Do You See Yourself?
The Bible tells us that as a man thinks in his heart, so is he. This means that how you see yourself determines everything about you and any circumstance you are facing.
Brother or sister, the truth is that through Jesus’ finished work at the cross, you are completely righteous and completely redeemed from every curse of sickness. You are God’s beloved child for whom Jesus did a complete work to save, heal and deliver.
So don’t see yourself as the sick trying to get healed. You are the healed, righteous and beloved child of God facing some symptoms. Be of good cheer! There is no disease or condition that is greater than the perfect, finished work that Jesus has accomplished for you.
Declare what you’ve been made and paid for in Christ and see your life manifest this truths and inheritance that are completely yours!
Colossians 1:14 New King James Version (NKJV)
Are you forgiven or working to be forgiven?
To earn God’s forgiveness, people will get in the religious trap of trying to keep the laws of the old covenant, only to fail consistently and end up feeling like hypocrites. In comparison, those who have received and believed the truth of their forgiveness along with the other new covenant realities have had their lives graciously transformed by what HE did and not what they do.
That’s the power of the gospel of Christ. It is able to mend broken lives and restore broken relationships! Knowing you are completely forgiven destroys the power of sin in your life. I know how this revelation has transformed my life.
So when you understand how much you have been forgiven, because that is how much God loves you, you can’t help but love Him much. This is a key to loving the Lord, others and enjoying your relationship with Him.
Family, when you fail, come to Jesus with the boldness and confidence that the Bible tells us to do. Come and receive HIS love, grace and goodness while trusting HIS transforming process.
Don’t worry, He won’t put you under more guilt, shame and condemnation. He will remind you of the FINISHED work accomplished at the cross and say, “Your sins are already forgiven. I have already paid the price for your sins at in and with the price of my blood. Rest in My forgiveness and love for you.”
Declare the blood and finished work that HE did and paid for your complete freedom in Christ.
Romans 8:31-32 New King James Version (NKJV)
31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?
If God is for you, than whats NOT possible for you to achieve?
Start receiving the good news of Jesus. When you are faced with difficult circumstances, keep on believing in His love that was demonstrated on the cross for you and He will cause whatever your facing to be turned around for good and for His glory! Situations can present you with what appear as lemons, but God will turn the lemons into lemonade for your enjoyment!
That’s the power of the gospel of Christ. It is able to accomplish in and all that is needed for you to live a victorious life! Knowing that HE is for you and not against you empowers you to walk in complete victory. I know how this revelation has transformed my life.
Don’t profess you don’t have all the answers, but approach the situation knowing that you have the mind of Christ, therefore you know and have all things because HE lives inside you. Begin to meditate on all that you and what HE has done on your behalf. When we have this confidence that God is for us and not against us, we can believe for restoration, breakthroughs, and good things to happen to us.
Now, that’s God! When He restores, His restoration is always greater in quantity or quality. But think about it: if people won’t adjust their erroneously belief that God is punishing them because of their sins, they would never be able to muster the courage and trust God for restoration and fulfillment of all things HE has assured us.
Family, to begin to reign in life as HE promised it’s important you believe with all your heart that God is for you and not against you. His truth, His righteousness, His gospel, His salvation, His Word, and His Spirit declare that you have been 100% forgiven and HE nailed it all to the cross. God is on your side. And if God is for you, who can be against you?
Declare the goodness of the Father, that HE is loved, I am loved by HIM and am one with HIM. I’m complete in Christ.
Isaiah 43:25 New King James Version (NKJV)
25 “I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake; And I will not remember your sins.
YOUR DEBT HAS BEEN FOREVER PAID IN FULL!!!
The Gospel is the too good to be true news. Here is the best news of the day! Although you and I owed God a sin debt that we could never pay, Jesus has already paid our debt in full.
Because of who Jesus is and the value of that one Man, the price that He paid for our sins was an over-payment. All the sinners put together cannot compare with the value of that one Man. He not over-paid, but paid it beyond reproach. Our sins have been paid in full to the point that we shouldn’t have any more conscience of it ever again!
Lets pretend that I lent you $100,000 for something you owed and as time goes by, you find that you cannot possibly ever pay the money back. Then one day, a friend who is a billionaire hears about your debt and gives a $1 million to pay your debt not only in full and but beyond.
Now, what has your friend done? Well, because he loves you, he has over-paid your debt to make sure that you will never feel the debt on your conscience again, and that your creditor has no more reason to require payment from you.
This is what Jesus has accomplished for you and me through His finished work on the cross. His payment has wiped out your entire life’s sins—past, present, and future—once and for all!
Perhaps in the past you were not aware of the fullness of this gospel of grace, but now I have conveyed the good news to you. It’s now up to you to believe the message.
You can respond in disbelief, asking, “Are you sure? I’ve owed this debt for such a long time, and now you’re telling me that it’s all paid up?” Or you can shout, “Hallelujah!” and rejoice over this unmerited free gift that has cleared your debt of sin completely!
Jesus not only completed and paid it for you, but assured you and I in HIS statement It Is Finished. Paid fully, begin to enjoy the benefits of what HE did and rest in it all. No Longer remain in a sin-conscious, insulting the payment of HIS BLOOD. By continuing to live in that state you are saying that it is not enough. You are saying that HIS BLOOD wasn’t enough.
Jesus’ payment more than satisfied and not only satisfied but paid way beyond what what you and I could ever accomplish in and of our own actions. Jesus is the sacrificial lamb from the Father to assure all is well and the handwriting of requirements that were against you and I have been blotted out. How can we say that His sacrifice is not enough?
My friend, Jesus, being the Son of God, has overpaid your entire life’s sins—once and for all! Believe the good news and draw near to your Savior today! The Word of God declares to you that you can have “boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus” (Heb. 10:19).
Today, in the face of whatever you need help with, you can draw near to God with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having your heart sprinkled from an evil, sin-stained conscience, and receive His tender mercies, grace, and help for all your needs (Heb. 10:22, 4:16).
Colossians 1:27 New King James Version (NKJV)
The KING of KING lives in YOU!!!
The Gospel is the too good to be true news and the news gets better and better when we embrace the reality of the gospel. There isn’t any provision HE didn’t address in what HE did on our behalf to enjoy this amazing journey of a life in, with and HIM in us.
Jesus not only paid it all, but took it one step further and assured us that the KING of KINGS would make their home in us. That’s right, they are making their home in you and I therefore everything they have you and I have. How can we be one with them and not have all that they have. Too many see The Father is some far off place while in reality YOU are one with HIM!
If we’d awaken to the reality of what HE did and where HE really is, there isn’t anything that YOU couldn’t accomplish and overcome in this life. That’s right, the FATHER isn’t striving and or working to overcome any situation and we shouldn’t either. No, we should learn to rest in the reality that YOU and I are one with HIM and what HE has, we have.
I promise you that if your perspective would only line up with what HE did and who lives in YOU, then your life would turn into YOUR BEST LIFE NOW. Too many are waiting to get to the sweet bye and bye while in reality it’s not on the Fathers good pleasure to give you the KINGDOM, but give it right NOW. Stop buying the lie that you have to wait and step into the reality that not only does HE live in YOU, but that YOU have whatever HE has NOW.
Start elevating the truth above the lie and bringing it into the captivity and the obedience of Christ and watch whatever your facing change. HIS TRUTH trumps any lie that has been presented and if you’ll answer the lie with the truth you’ll see complete victory. Jesus isn’t struggling, but resting in the truth and finished work HE completed not only for all of humanity, but for you and I.
Today, in the face of whatever lie that has been sown by whomever or whatever, answer it with TRUTH and watch the victory come.
Romans 6:14 New King James Version (NKJV)
14 For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.
The Revelation Of Righteousness Delivers
Because of the cross of Jesus Christ, God is free to righteously bless all who simply believe in Him. The cross frees God to be gracious toward us even when we are undeserving, because Jesus bore the punishment for our sins. The more you believe this and meditate on this truth, the more you put yourself under the grace of God.
What happens when you are under God’s grace? The Bible tells us that sin and all its effects will not have dominion in your life when you are under God’s grace.
Suppose your presented with something that is contrary to what was accomplished by HIS unmerited grace and favor. Go to God and say, “Father, I bring this situation to You and I put it under Your grace.” Something happens when you do that. The situation no longer depends on what the specialists have said, or how severe the symptoms are. It doesn’t depend on your ability to do this or that. It now depends on God’s unmerited, unearned favor!
Brother or Sister, bring each area of your life under God’s grace. One by one, bring them all under the spout of His unmerited favor. The enemy may still give you negative thoughts that cause you to worry about a specific area. If he does that, just remind yourself that that area is under God’s abundant grace!
Isaiah 54:9–10 New King James Version (NKJV)
9 “For this is like the waters of Noah to Me; For as I have sworn That the waters of Noah would no longer cover the earth, So have I sworn
That I would not be angry with you, nor rebuke you. 10 For the mountains shall depart And the hills be removed, But My kindness shall not depart from you, Nor shall My covenant of peace be removed,” Says the Lord, who has mercy on you.
TRUE INTIMACY WITH JESUS
Unfortunately, many sincere and well-meaning believers fall into the devil’s trap, and they end up with the wrong belief that they have fallen short of God’s expectations and have angered Him. They live in a constant state of trying to appease and please this angry God. Instead of enjoying a sweet, intimate relationship with Jesus, they feel like they are hypocrites or they feel as if they are always treading on eggshells when it comes to their walk with the Lord.
If you have experienced such thoughts about God before, I would like to share this very important principle with you: Fear and love cannot coexist in a healthy relationship. Insecurity and love cannot coexist in the truly intimate relationship that God wants with you and me, His children.
To many have bought the lie from religion which puts you what I call the hamster wheel of religion. Just like the hamster that works so hard it can never get no where. It works and works only to end up in the same place and caged. Don’t be caged by this lie anymore. Answer the lie with the truth. The truth that HE is good and HIS mercy is toward and for YOU.
That’s what it is all about, brothers and sisters. Winning the battle of your mind is all about your freedom and liberty in Christ Jesus, your Lord and Savior. When you start to believe right about His love and grace toward you, permanent, liberating change happens!
So be strong in God’s love for you and don’t let wrong believing rob you of a life of great joy and peace. Remember, God is not mad at you; He is mad about you!
Galatians 3:3 New King James Version (NKJV)
3 Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh?
Continue to Live in and by HIS grace!
How were you first impacted by Jesus? Was it through the law (demands) or was it His grace toward you that touched your heart? We all began our relationship with the Lord because we were impacted by His love and grace. Let us then continue in that grace.
The apostle Paul asked the church in Galatia point-blank, “…Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh [self-effort]?” (Galatians 3:2–3). Paul was saying to them, “You began by believing in His grace, why are you now depending on your works? That is foolishness! You should be continuing in His unmerited favor!” These are strong words by Paul.
Beloved, don’t start with grace and end up with the law. Don’t start with the new covenant, only to turn back to the old covenant! Stay on the path of grace. When you are established in the new covenant of grace, you will experience a tremendous sense of confidence and security in Christ. When your confidence is in His unmerited favor and not your performance, you will know that you have access to His blessings all the time, simply because of His finished work at the cross. Today, think, talk and act knowing that it is not about you or your works, but Jesus and His work, and step out into His blessings for you!
Romans 8:37 New King James Version (NKJV)
37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
More Than Conquerors Through Christ’s Love!
The sun shines on every blade of grass in a field. But if you put a magnifying glass over one particular blade of grass, it will center the heat from the sun over that blade, and that blade of grass will burn.
My friend, that is what you must do with God’s love. Put a “magnifying glass” over your life and see God’s love being focused and concentrated on YOU. Hear Him call you His beloved, the one He sent His only Son to die for, the one who has His complete attention, favor and unconditional love.
When you personalize God’s love for you, when you live each day knowing and conscious that God loves you, you will be on fire with a supernatural ability to overcome every challenge in life. Indeed, the Bible tells us that we are “more than conquerors” through Jesus and His love for us!
Brothers and Sisters, YOU are new testament creatures that HE has made all things new. Stay in Christ and live out all that HE intended for you. Stay on the path of the New Covenant, which is what defines you. When we do we stop trying to perform and begin to rest in what HE did and not what we do. Experience HIS tremendous LOVE that HE has for YOU. When your confidence is in His unmerited LOVE and not your performance, you will know that you have access to His ALL HIS blessings, simply because of His finished work at the cross. Today, think, talk and act knowing that YOU are loved because HE is that is good.
Ephesians 2:4-7 New King James Version (NKJV)
But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
Grace That last a lifetime!
One reason many Christians fret and worry instead of turn to God when they face challenges is that they see His grace as limited. Just as they see their time as limited, their savings as limited and the earth’s natural resources as limited, so they rationalize that God’s grace must also be limited. How unfortunate it is when modern-day believers don’t understand the word “grace” and that JESUS HIMSELF is grace and truth!
Brothers and Sisters, when it comes to the Lord’s grace, you must know that it is UNLIMITED! It’s INFINITE! It’s meant for a LIFETIME!! Who can fathom the depths of His immeasurable grace?
That’s why God doesn’t want you to take just a pinch of His grace once in a while and worry the rest of the time. No, He wants you to take an abundance of it every single day for every single situation! Don’t take just “a limited amount” of grace. Take an abundance of grace and all that the Father provided and intended. That’s how we can live at rest and reign in this life!
Galatians 3:5 New King James Version (NKJV)
5 Therefore He who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you, does He do it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?—
Choose the right road!
Brother or Sister, God who performs miracles through and by you, does He do it by the hearing of faith or by the works of the law? It is by the hearing of faith—hearing and believing. The works of the law cannot give you miracles, but the hearing of faith can. The Bible says that by the foolishness of preaching, God sozos you. That is, He saves, heals, blesses and makes you whole (1 Corinthians 1:21).
For example, when Paul was preaching in Lystra, a crippled man who was listening to the apostle had faith to be healed. All Paul had to do was shout to him, “Stand up straight on your feet!” And the man leaped and walked (Acts 14:10).
Family, don’t sacrifice hearing for doing. In the Old Testament, the Israelites made the golden calf from gold earrings. Gold in the Bible speaks of divinity and earrings, hearing. Together they speak of divine hearing. The calf is an animal of labor. In other words, by worshipping the golden calf, the Israelites were worshipping the god of labor and sacrificing divine hearing for doing. That is what a lot of Christians are doing today. They focus on doing and sacrifice hearing.
So don’t fall into this trap. Your works or self-efforts cannot save you or bring about the miracle you need. Just keep hearing about and meditating on what Jesus has done for you. Believe the good news and rest in Jesus’ finished work. Faith will come to empower you to stand, walk and leap in victory!
Colossians 2:13–14 New King James Version (NKJV)
13 And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, 14 having wiped out the [a]handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.
The Father fulfilled the LAW for YOU!!!
When we consider the account of the woman caught in adultery in John 8, interestingly, the Bible is silent on what Jesus wrote on the ground with His finger in response to the Pharisees on the matter (John 8:6). We can only assume, but I believe whatever it was I believe it had to do with HIS GRACE and TRUTH.
The book of John is very clear and Jesus was and is both Grace and Truth. That’s right, Moses gave us the law, but Jesus came to fulfill the law while reveling Grace and Truth.
The first set of the Ten Commandments was destroyed by Moses when he saw the Israelite’s were found worshiping the golden calf at the foot of Mount Sinai. God then wrote another set on stones and gave it to Moses for it to be placed under the mercy seat in the ark of the covenant.
It’s because Jesus Himself fulfilled all the righteous requirements of the law on our behalf and took upon Himself every curse and stroke of punishment for our sins on His own body at the cross. We are forgiven because He was judged. We are accepted because He was condemned!
Whatever your challenge today, your answer is found in receiving a fresh revelation of how much you are forgiven in Christ.
