JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT “EVERYTHING YOUR FAITH PRODUCES!”

With this in mind, we always pray that our God will make you worthy of His call. We also pray that through [His] power He will help you accomplish every good desire and help you do everything your faith produces.  2 Thessalonians 1:11 God’s Word Translation

If you are born again, YOU ARE THE RIGHTEOUS OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS!!! And whether you know it or not being righteous is powerful.  It gives you rights!!!  You have a right to be healthy. You have a right to live a whole, full long and abundant life that is vibrant and active even into old age. But what about those dreams and desires you have inside.  The thing that just won’t go away.  The thing that may not seem very spiritual but it brings you great joy and you light up when its brought up in a conversation.  Whether you know it or not these are things that your faith is producing.  “Well Brother Vincent, I want to raise horses. That does not seem very spiritual.”  That’s what you think.  Have you ever heard of the book or movie The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R Tolkien?  Mr Tolkien was a Christian and is even deemed responsible for leading another well known author and Christian to the Lord, C.S. Lewis.  Many of his designs and characters such as Middle Earth came from a life long love of trees, beings he brought to life in his stories.  What does this have to do with The Lord?  Everything.  Even after your born again God may shape but he does not change your personality because it is part of the ‘weirdness’ He designed you with to bring to the world.  Many people are shocked to find out that the word weird means supernatural.

Today many people have given up their weirdness to assimilate and be like some supposed celebrity or star.  I use the word star very loosely because many of the people that are called stars are not and I do not say this based on talent.  What is the most outstanding and noticeable element of a star, a real star in the sky?  It has light!!!  The origin of the word weird means  having the power to control destiny.  Your weirdness has the power to control your destiny and because you are righteous you are to live by faith and when you do Poppa, God the Father releases His Power to help you accomplish EVERY GOOD DESIRE and help you do EVERYTHING YOUR FAITH PRODUCES.  J.R.R. Tolkien did not set out to make some epic story. He simply wrote what was in his heart, not what he heard from someone else.  Take joy in being you.  Honor God by honoring your own uniqueness.  Know that your desires are good and that you have been granted the power and permission to bring them to pass.  As I often say, don’t take my word for it, take The Word for it.

The desire of the righteous is only good… Proverbs 11:23 King James Verison

…but the desire of the righteous shall be granted. Proverbs 10:24 King James Version

God’s Word Who is Jesus says, that the desire of the righteous is only good and that that desire is granted.  So believe Poppa to help you accomplish every good desire and to help you do everything your faith produces. AMEN, AMEN and AMEN!!!

All the blessed to you!!! Shalom!

JUST DA TRUTH-ABOUT THE WORD!

This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words. I Corinthians 2:13 New International Version

What makes the The Bible, The Word of God so powerful?  A very simple truth.  The Bible is not just pages and ink and words.  The Bible is not something, its SOMEONE: JESUS!!!  That’s right! The Word is Jesus.  But Jesus is a person and has a flesh and bone body (He had a flesh and blood body before he was crucified).  Yes, John 1:14 says “So the Word became human and made His home among us.”   So do you see what The Word just said?  The Word became human…..  I am going to tell you something that every person on the planet needs to know saved or unsaved. If they did it can change their entire life and the lives of their family.  Whether you believe it or not every single thing you see and even the things you don’t see with your physical eyes were created by WORDS!!!  

One has only to read the first book of Genesis to understand this.  And God said (spoken words),”Light be!” and Light was. Now I am not talking about the Sun because if you read a little further you will see that the Sun was not created until the fourth day.  But that is another story for another time.  But lets talk about WORDS or The Word.

In the beginning The Word already existed.
The Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
He existed in the beginning with God.
God created everything through him,
and nothing was created except through him.
The Word gave life to everything that was created,
and his life brought light to everyone.  

John 1:1-4  New Living Translation

So you see here from the book of John,  EVERYTHING was created by God through The Word.  How did God do this?  He does it because His Word has POWER!!!

No word from God shall be void of power.  Luke 1:37 English Revised Version

You see, every word from God has power in it to bring itself to pass.  Imagine if every word you said came to pass.  People play with words.  They say things like, “Oh I love her to death.”  Now imagine that if that persons word was like God as that person continues to love that individual eventually their love would cause that person to die.  God said, “Light be!” and He meant it, He believed it  and it came to pass and was made manifest and  He saw it and said it was good.  If this sounds like make believe its not. People do this everyday. They talk to things everyday either negatively or positively.  People talk to plants to help them grow.    There are proven scientific test that show when people speak positive words to water it affects the formation of the water or even ice crystals.

The Bible is not just any regular set of words, each and every word was carefully crafted and released by and through men who were under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit which is the Spirit of God.  Now many people say “the Bible has changed people have added to it.”  And you’re right. When you look in a King James Version Bible and you see words in italics that means those words were not there originally and were added for clarity.  Does this mean The Words is not dependable, absolutely not. This means remove those words to get the true meaning.  Also please know that the Old Testament was written originally in Hebrew and the New Testament was written in Greek.    So you need to study these things out to find out whats really being said.  You study and practice to get good at your job.  You take the time needed to become proficient at things you enjoy or value or have a career in.  How about investing some time in something that will benefit your spirit, soul and body and not only yours, but your families.

Hebrew and Greek are very different languages. There are some words in Hebrew and Greek that do not even translate to English.  So what do you do?  You obey The Word.  What does The Word tell you to do with The Word?

Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.  2 Timothy 2:15  King James Version

Since the Holy Spirit inspired the writings, then He is the One Who can teach you about what God said and what God meant.

But you have received the Holy Spirit, and he lives within you, so you don’t need anyone to teach you what is true. For the Spirit teaches you everything you need to know, and what he teaches is true–it is not a lie. So just as he has taught you, remain in fellowship with Christ.  I John 2:27 New Living Translation

Since God is the Author and The Holy Spirit dictated to men of God what was being said, the Holy Spirit can teach you what He said and what He meant.  This will give you the same power as you speak The Word of God in faith as God Himself.  When you take God’s Word believe it and speak it, it has the same power and result as if God Himself did it.  So make a choice to believe The Word and act on it, SPEAK IT!! Then see good things come into your life!!!

All the blessed to you!!! Shalom

TRUTH 4 THOUGHT-WEEKEND EDITION- ALL YOU ASK OR THINK!!

Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,  Ephesians 3:20 KJV

Your imagination is AWESOME!!! You can dream up places and things that no one else can.  You can create worlds that do not exist that are beautiful.  You can dream up the life that you always desired.  Then you can ask the Father to give you that life or those desires.  Poppa is awesome and He is able to do or go beyond what you ask or think.  But you need to be asking for something and you need to be thinking about something or imagining.  Think about the movie Star Wars.  All those planets all those places, all those people are creations that came out of the mind and concepts of George Lucas.  He created Star Wars and then used his faith and belief to share what he dreamed with the world and as a result millions of people have enjoyed that creation.  It sounds like God the Father and it is.  Man is made in God’s image and the ability to create and dream and imagine and bring it to pass is a power and ability given by God the Father.  Look at what the Father said about man in Genesis.  Take special note that this was after Adam and Eve sinned.

And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.  Genesis 11:6 KJV

The Lord Himself said that nothing will be restrained from them which they have imagined to do.  This is fallen man.  This is fallen creation.  YOU ARE REDEEMED!!!  The Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit live on the inside of you.  All of Heaven and its resources are at your disposal to fulfill your God given purpose so you are able to do exceedingly, abundantly above all you ask or think according to His power that works in you.  THINK ABOUT THAT!!!  Meditate that, believe that and pursue.   Jesus did not come so that you can barely survive then go to Heaven.  No, He came that you might have LIFE, the same successful, abundant, prosperous life that He has and had when He was here on the Earth.  Never sick, never broke, never worried, never defeated.  He gave His Life FOR YOU and TO YOU!!!  Receive it today and everyday by receiving the abundance of GRACE and the gift of RIGHTEOUSNESS and you will reign in LIFE!!!!

All the “blessed” to you!!! Shalom

JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT YOUR LORDSHIP

On His robe at His thigh was written this title: King of all kings and Lord of all lords. Revelation 19:16 New Living Translation

If you have been born again any amount of time, you have probably heard Jesus called, “The Kings of kings and the Lord of lords.” The question is do you know who these ‘kings and lords’ are that He is King and Lord over? That would be YOU and ME.

Together they will go to war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will defeat them because He is Lord of all lords and King of all kings. And His called and chosen and faithful ones will be with Him.” Revelation 17:14 New Living Translation

That last verse is exciting because it says when Jesus puts the final beat down on the devil we are going to be with Him. That’s right, we will be right there with Jesus. But that’s not our subject today. What I want to focus on is what does our kingship and lordship mean and afford us? It affords us the same rights and privileges and power and authority as JESUS!!! The scripture tells us that the law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus has set us free from the law of sin and death in Romans 8:32. So we are free from the law of sin and death. Romans chapter 6 makes an even more defining statement.

Knowing that Christ, having been raised up from among those who are dead, no longer dies. Death over Him no longer exercises lordship. For the death He died, He died with respect to our sinful nature once for all. But the life He lives, He lives with respect to God Romans 6:9-10 Kenneth Wuest Translation

Did you see what that just said? It said death over Him no longer exercises lordship. Jesus is Lord even over death. You are a lord in and under Jesus that makes you a lord over death as well. Death no longer exercises lordship over Christ and you are in Christ so death has no lordship over you in any way, shape or form. Understand all fear has it’s root in the fear of death. When you are no longer afraid of death because of the revelation that death has no more dominion over you through Christ Jesus, it frees you on a level that you have never been freed before. Death used to reign and in unbelievers lives it still does and unfortunately in believers lives who do not know the truth that makes them free. But look at what The Word of God says.

When Adam sinned, sin entered the world. Adam’s sin brought death, so death spread to everyone, for everyone sinned. Romans 5:12 New Living Translation

Adam’s one sin brought death to every person who ever lived. But thank God the Father He did not leave us there. No through Christ Jesus He gave us back the eternal, blessed, healed and whole life that God the Father had planned for us all along. Death never was The Father’s plan. Growing old and dying was never part of The Father’s plan.

So just as sin ruled over all people and brought them to death, now God’s wonderful grace rules instead, giving us right standing with God and resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 5:21 New Living Translation

Grace who is Jesus rules now. Make sure you do not allow sin and death to rule over you in any way shape or form. You are to walk in the perfect will of God and accept nothing less. That will is GRACE!!!

All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!

JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT HOPE

May God, the giver of hope, fill you with continual joy and peace because you trust in Him–so that you may have abundant hope through the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13  Weymouth New Testament

Has anyone ever asked you a question and you answered, not really in confidence? “Hey So and so, is everything working out for you?  I don’t know! I hope so.”  This type of hope is simply wishful thinking and double mindedness.  “Well it may work out or maybe it won’t, I am not sure.”  This is not Bible hope.  The word hope in the Bible is the greek word elpis and it means an expectation of what is sure. It also means trust and confidence.  When you put it together it is a confident and joyful expectation of what is good.  This is why this scripture calls God the Father the Giver or Source of HOPE.  The Father is not the Source of things that are uncertain and may or may not happen.  The way He gives hope is through His promises which are sure!

For all of God’s promises have been fulfilled in Christ with a resounding “Yes!” And through Christ, our “Amen” (which means “Yes”) ascends to God for His glory. 2 Corinthians 1:20 New Living Translation

So you see all of God’s promises have already been fulfilled in Christ.  So when you place a demand on a promise the answer is already a resounding or definite YES!!!  Then when you add your AMEN or so be it, this ascends and brings glory to God.  Lets look at another familiar scripture that contains hope.

I know the plans that I have for you, declares the LORD. They are plans for peace and not disaster, plans to give you a future filled with hope  Jeremiah 29:11 God’s Word Translation

So God the Father has a future filled with what is sure as you trust and have confidence in Him.  Look to Him and trust in Him and let Him know that you are looking to Him and trusting in Him to bring it to pass,  One of the main ways to have your hope full and confident is to get a revelation of how much God loves you.  Then your hope will never put you to shame.

And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because He has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with His love. Romans 5:5 New Living Translation

When you have a revelation of how much God loves you, you know He can only do you good and this gives you a confident expectation of good from Him and all His promises because of what is yours through Christ Jesus.  Even if the situation looks impossible remember Abraham.  The Bible says Abraham hoped against hoped.

Even when there was no reason for hope, Abraham kept hoping–believing that he would become the father of many nations. For God had said to him, “That’s how many descendants you will have! Romans 4:18 New Living Translation

Find out what The Word of God says and then jack your hope up just as high as you can get it then let the Holy Ghost take it even higher.  Poppa has promised that hope will not disappoint because He loves you.

All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!

JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT REDEEMED FROM ALL EVIL!!!

The Angel which redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let my name be named on them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth. Genesis 48:16 KJV

If you saw the  movie WAR ROOM (which is a great movie) there is a scene where the woman who plays the prayer warrior and the other main female lead are walking in a parking garage and a robber approaches them. He then orders them to hand over their valuables. The one lady who is in warrior training just yields and says “Take what you want!.” The prayer warrior however looks the robber in the eye fearlessly and says, “You put that knife down in the Name of Jesus!!!” The robber pauses, seems to get confused and runs off. I am not going to get off into what you should do and what you should not do because everyone’s knowledge is different. But what I am going to tell you is that although that is a movie, it is a very real situation and the two reactions are very similar to what can happen when two people who are believers are faced with the same situation. What’s the key here and in all situations? KNOWLEDGE!!!!

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…. Hosea 4:6 English Standard Version

Now The Word here admits that God’s people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Not knowledge of karate or how to invest in stocks but a knowledge about Him. I will get to why they were lacking this knowledge specifically in another post but let me share with you some verses and scriptures on protection that are vital for the believer especially today. Recently there was a mass shooting that was tragic but what is more interesting is that the shooter allegedly targeted or ask people were they Christians then told them, “Good because you are about to see God!”.  Now when you think of that or being in that situation does that invoke fear in you or does it make God’s Word rise up in you? For me and many others I am sure it makes The Word rise up in me. But what Word?

No weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed, and you shall refute every tongue that rises against you in judgment. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD and their vindication(righteousness) from me, declares the LORD.” Isaiah 54:17 English Standard Version

Please pay close attention to what The Word of God just said and what He is saying thru me. This is the Lord talking!!! HE SAID NO WEAPON that is fashioned against you shall succeed. He did not say no weapon fashioned against you shall succeed except a gun, a nuclear bomb or radiation. He said NO WEAPON!! Do you believe that? Because if you do then I am saying that it does not matter what weapon it is, it won’t work. This is not a dig against the people who lost their lives, this is a vaccination against more people dying. The issue is not about people have died before that were Christians of whatever weapon. The issue is do you believe Psalms 91 or not?

A thousand may fall at your side(people you do not know or who are far away from you),
ten thousand at your right hand (people who are close to you or even other family members),
but it will not come near you. Psalm 91:7 NIV

Listen please and look again at our opening text.

The Angel which redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let my name be named on them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth. Genesis 48:16 KJV

That Angel mentioned in the above scripture is not just some regular angel. The reason why it is capitalized because it is the pre-incarnate Lord Jesus Himself. This is Jacob talking and he is blessing his grandchildren.  Jacob dealt with many things in his life and most were his own fault but he said “The Angel which redeemed me from ALL EVIL… bless the lads”.  This is a continuation of the blessing of Abraham.  This is yours.  Jesus HAS redeemed us from ALL EVIL but you have to believe it. What do you have more faith in? Do you have more faith in if you were bitten by a poisonous snake that it could harm you or kill you or no weapon formed against you shall succeed?  Please don’t wait until a situation is upon you to make that decision. I am not trying to induce fear here I am advocating FAITH that causes you to believe your Daddy’s Love and protection that has already been bought and paid for by the same Angel who redeemed Jacob’s life from ALL EVIL!!!.

Many people are bitten by snakes throughout the world and some get sick, swell up, lose body parts as a result or some die. When you watch National Geographic or some movie and people are bitten people immediately go into fear and expect sickness, pain and death. They even have people around them who tell them what is going to happen. Without faith in The Word of God yes all you have is the natural to expect. But lets see what happened to Paul when he was bitten by a very venomous snake on the island of Malta.

But Paul shook the snake off into the fire and suffered no ill effects. Acts 28:5

Sounds a lot like that lady who was about to be robbed in the movie.  She walked away with her life AND her stuff because she believed in THE NAME.  She believed in The Angel who redeemed her life from ALL EVIL.  I trust that you will put your trust completely in the Lord for your protection and the protection of your family.

All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!!!

JUST DA TRUTH – BEING ONE WITH JESUS BY RECEIVING SHALOM

Now may the Lord of shalom Himself give you (His) shalom always, in all ways. The Lord be with all of you. 2 Thessalonians 3:16 Complete Jewish Bible

One of my favorite words is the word SHALOM.  It is a great word and it reminds me of God the Father because although it is one word, it means many things and they are all GOOD just like God the Father.  According to Strong’s Concordance 7965 Shalom means completeness, wholeness, health, peace, welfare, safety soundness, tranquility, prosperity, perfectness, fullness, rest, harmony, the absence of agitation or discord. Shalom comes from the root verb shalom meaning to be complete, perfect and full.  Now think about this?  If you had to live life and all you had was Jesus and Shalom, do you think you could be content and happy and at total peace?  I can. I mean look at the meaning….EVERYTHING is there.

This is how Jesus lived while here on the Earth. He lived in complete wholeness and complete health. You cannot find one scripture in the BIble where Jesus was sick one day (until He bore our diseases on the Cross).  Jesus was never in lack.  He lived in complete prosperity and abundance at all times.  Jesus lived in freedom from agitation or discord.  Even when people were trying to kill him, Jesus was just as calm and composed, staying in the Love of God as if he was walking through a flower garden. How did He do this?  SHALOM.  Shalom is a great and powerful blessing from Jesus that just like His Name is given to us. Look at what Jesus said.

 “What I am leaving with you is shalom — I am giving you My shalom. I don’t give the way the world gives. Don’t let yourselves be upset or frightened.”  John 14:27 Complete Jewish Bible 

That word ‘leaving’ there means to send away.  Jesus sent shalom away from Himself and then gave (which means to offer) His very own Shalom to us.  He sent His Shalom away because He did not need it where He was going.  In Heaven there is no sickness so you don’t need healing.  There is no lack or poverty there so you don’t need prosperity in Heaven.  There is no danger in Heaven so there is no need for safety.  However here on Earth, there is sickness, danger and lack that exist as a lie.  But through Christ, Shalom exist as the truth for those who believe and receive His Shalom.  So in our opening text Paul prayed a prayer that Jesus had already answered,….by leaving and giving us His Shalom. Paul also called Him Who He is, The Lord of Shalom.  It’s not a lesser version or quality of Shalom than what Jesus had.  It is the exact same Shalom that Jesus had.  His very own personal Shalom. And it is yours for the taking.  The word receive is the greek word lambano and it means to take.

BE SURE TO RECEIVE HIS SHALOM!!!

All the ‘blessed’ to you!!!  Shalom!

JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT SHALOM

“What I am leaving with you is shalom — I am giving you My Shalom. I don’t give the way the world gives. Don’t let yourselves be upset or frightened.  John 14:27 Complete Jewish Bible

Have you ever read in the King James Version of the Bible various places where it says and uses the word “peace”.  I want to bring something to your mind.  What if you were watching Jeopardy and the host said, “Please describe the ingredients of a cake?”  Then the person who is playing the game says, “Eggs”.  That’s it!  No flour, no butter.  Well that is the same way it is when a person tries to reduce the word shalom to peace.

According to Strong’s Concordance  Shalom means completeness, wholeness, health, peace, welfare, safety soundness, tranquility, prosperity, perfectness, fullness, rest, harmony, the absence of agitation or discord.   According to Strongs there are 14 ingredients in shalom.  To reduce it to one is robbery of the completeness, wholeness, welfare, safety soundness, tranquility, prosperity, perfectness, fullness, rest, harmony and the absence of agitation or discord that Jesus also died and payed for to give you.  Would you buy a house and pay say $250,000 for it and then have the seller say, “Okay here’s the roof.”  You would be asking, “Where is the rest of the house?”  The issue is that the English language does not have the words to describe the fullness of the Hebrew and Greek language.  So many times words are reduced to half their meaning or even sometimes a totally different meaning.

“What I am leaving with you is shalom — I am giving you My Shalom. I don’t give the way the world gives. Don’t let yourselves be upset or frightened. John 14:27 Complete Jewish Bible

In this scripture Jesus is telling His disciples (AND YOU) what He is leaving them (YOU) with.  And then He clarifies it even further by telling them not only is He leaving them with shalom but He is giving them His Shalom.  The very same completeness, wholeness, health, peace, welfare, safety soundness, tranquility, prosperity, perfectness, fullness, rest, harmony, the absence of agitation or discord that He Himself had while He was here.  Why? Two reasons.  He no longer needed it for where He was going and they did because they were staying here on Earth.  There is no incompleteness in Heaven.  There is no agitation or discord in Heaven.  So Jesus did not need Shalom there.  On Earth there is all kinds of discord and other issues.  Jesus knew this.

“I have said these things to you so that, united with me, you may have shalom. In the world, you have tsuris(trouble). But be brave! I have conquered the world!”  John 16:33 Complete Jewish Bible

So Jesus knew there would be things on the Earth that would try to challenge us and He left us His Shalom so that we could calmly handle every situation the exact same way that He did. In complete and total SHALOM!!!  I will leave you with this prayer from Paul.

Now may the Lord of Shalom Himself give you His Shalom always in all ways. The Lord be with all of you.               2 Thessalonians 3:16 Complete Jewish Bible

Be sure to receive “His Shalom!!!” Amen!!!

All the “blessed” to you!!! Shalom!

TRUTH 4 THOUGHT – GO THE OTHER WAY!!!!!

….that, as sin reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Romans 5:21 Kenneth Wuest Translation

I want to ask you to do yourself a favor.  Take sometime this weekend and really meditate,  think about and have a discussion with the Holy Spirit about this scripture and this chapter.  Lets look at an earlier verse as this may help you understand what is being offered to you.

For the sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to rule over many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of righteousness, for all who receive it will live in triumph over sin and death through this one man, Jesus Christ.  Romans 5:17 New Living Translation

Do you see what is being said to you  and hear what is now being offered to you and IS YOURS NOW because of Jesus Christ our Lord?  What it’s saying is death was only able to rule and reign over men because of what Adam did.  That is the only reason that people are not living for 6,7,8, 900 years.  Before Adam sinned there was no death!!! Death was never part of God’s plan for man.  That came in because of sin.  Oh but GLORY TO GOD, sin has been done away with.  Sin has no dominion over you if you are not under the law trying to be holy instead of just accepting His Holiness.  This scripture declares to you and all who will receive it DA TRUTH!!!! That what Jesus did is greater than what sin did and because of God’s wonderful grace and His gift of righteousness ALL WHO RECEIVE IT WILL LIVE IN TRIUMPH OVER SIN AND DEATH through this One Man, Jesus Christ.  Jesus lives in perpetual victory over sin and death and if you believe and receive that so do you!!!!!

That means body parts wearing out, old age affecting you and death taking you out is no longer an option on the devils table. Why?

For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.  Romans 8:2  King James Version

You have been removed from that kingdom and from sin and death’s influence and lordship.  The only way it affects you is if you believe it can and will.  I don’t say this to be mean but the Lord Himself said, “My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge.”  It is only out of  ignorance that  you hear a believer and especially a minister say, “Well you know, when you get to a certain age, things don’t work as good as they used to.”  Think about this for a moment.  Do you realize that Jesus’s body is over 2000 years old?  And His Body is in perfect working order.  Now someone will say, “Well that’s Jesus and He has a glorified body”  Really?  Are you going to use that as a cop out?  Then what about Elijah?  Then what about Enoch?  Enoch is still a natural man in a natural body so far as we know and he was taken from the Earth almost 6000 years ago.  Do you think Enoch is in Heaven on a cane?  No maybe God made him a scooter to ride on to take the weight off his legs from ‘his arthritis.”  Bless God, you know that is not true. The same God that is sustaining Enoch’s ‘natural body‘  in Heaven can and will and is sustaining you and your body if you receive the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness!  There is no arthritis in Heaven.  And please let me help you with something.  If you have any type of ailment  PLEASE do not add insult to injury by claiming it as “YOUR ARTHRITIS” or “YOUR DIABETES”.  Please do not lie against THE TRUTH.  You are a member of the Body of Christ and Christ has no arthritis or diabetes or cancer and John 4:17 says, As He IS, so are we in this world!!!”  You are not just a natural person!    In the natural what is supposed to happen when a venomous snake bites a person?  They are supposed to become ill and possibly die.  Well how come when an extremely poisonous snake bit Paul he shook it off and felt no harm?

But Paul shook the snake off into the fire and suffered no ill effects.  Acts 28:5  New International Version

Understand something, God did not create the serpent or  snake with venom.  The snake in the garden had no venom and it was not biting or trying to bite Adam or his wife.  The venom came as a part of the curse as an effect of sin on the snake.  It came as a result of sin.  You have been made free from sin in all of its ways, shapes and forms.  Romans 6:14 says sin has no dominion over you because you are not under the law but under grace.  This tells me two things about Paul.   Paul was not living under the law and the Paul was living under grace and this is how sin and the serpents bite that came as an effect of sin had no dominion or effect on Paul.  As a matter of truth that scripture in Acts goes on to say that there were people standing around waiting for Paul to drop dead.  But when they saw it had no effect on him, they changed their minds and said he was a god!!!!!   That’s what is supposed to be happening with you and me.  When we lay hands on the sick and they recover, or a missing and deformed limb grows out people should be saying, “There goes GOD!!!”  You are His child.  Good children imitate their father if he is a good one (or in some cases a bad one).  But we have THE BEST FATHER THERE IS!!!

So how will this happen?  How will you live not only to 120 but 220, even 320 years young.  It will happen as you, while other people at 50, 60, 70 and 80 are thinking about and preparing to die, YOU will be preparing to live and continue to declare the works of the Lord.  This is what is called GOING THE OTHER WAY!!!!!  Don’t be afraid to GO THE OTHER WAY!!!!

JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT BEING SEATED IN HEAVEN WITH JESUS

And he has raised us up with him and seated us with himself in Heaven in Yeshua The Messiah.  Ephesians 2:6 Aramaic Bible in Plain English

There’s a saying that goes, “You can’t be in two places at one time.”  For unbelievers that is true but not for believers.  They make that saying a lie every single day they are alive in the Earth.  The believer on Earth is always in two places at the same time regardless of whether or not they are conscious of it.  They are physically here on Earth but they are also spiritually in Heaven seated in Heaven with Jesus and in Jesus.   Now that is protection.  But let’s talk about awareness of it.  Are you aware all the time that you are seated in Heaven with Jesus?  You need to be.  When you become aware of this and the finished work of Christ you will know that IT IS FINISHED!!!  So when that financial situation or a symptom tries to manifest you won’t get up out of your seat on the throne or start panicking about it.  You will simply speak like a king and declare what Jesus has already done about it and then sit there and see it become what you said that He said in the Earth realm. When you believe what The Word says and declare it, it is the final authority in each and every situation.  What does The Word say when the enemy or even things of your own doing try to negatively impact your life.

But in that coming day no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the LORD; their vindication will come from me. I, the LORD, have spoken!  Isaiah 54:17  New Living Translation

Because you are in Christ you are safe.  Because you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus certain things cannot happen to you….IF YOU BELIEVE THE WORD who is Jesus.  Someone would have to go through Jesus to get to you because you are in Christ.  You have to know The Truth and The Truth you know will make you free.  Look at these scriptures and get to know them.

No harm overtakes the righteous, but the wicked have their fill of trouble. Proverbs 12:21  NIV

Look, I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy, and you can walk among snakes and scorpions and crush them. Nothing will injure you.  Luke 10:19 New Living Translation

No weapon means NO WEAPON!!!! No harm means NO HARM!!!!  Nothing will injure you means NOTHING WILL INJURE YOU!!!  God’s word is faithful and true!!!  It is dependable all the time.  God is not a man that he should lie.  If He said it then He meant it and if He meant it then its good!!!  You are seated in Heaven with Christ.  Stay on the throne with Him and be the king He’s made you!!
