JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT JESUS ALREADY BORE THAT!!!

He Himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, so that, having died to sins, we might live for righteousness; you have been healed by His wounds. Peter 2:24 Holman Christian Standard Bible

I want to encourage you to take sometime this week and think about this truth. Do you realize that every sin you ever committed and every punishment for those sins including every sickness and disease and all lack, that Jesus already bore those things for you at the cross? This is why the scripture says above that we having died to sins should live to righteousness. It goes even further to say that the punishment, those inflicted wounds on Jesus paid the price for your complete and total healing and health for all time. Many believers believe that when they die and go to Heaven, once they are there they will then experience no more sickness, no more pain, no more sorrow at that time and in that place. And they are right.

What they don’t realize is that the very same Jesus Who has secured the means for them to be sickness free and pain free and lack free in Heaven never said or expected them to wait to get to Heaven to receive or experience that eternal inheritance that His death provided for them. Jesus said in one of His prayers, “Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.” However things are in Heaven that’s how they are supposed to be on the Earth as it relates to the believer. That is our inheritance and that is the Kingdom Jesus told us to seek first in Matthew 6:33 and Luke 12:31. You get an inheritance when a person dies and Jesus has already died and is raised. All that Jesus died to provide for you is yours RIGHT NOW!!! You receive it like you do everything else from Him, by faith. “Well nobody can expect to live like that on Earth!” Jesus did! Never sick one day of His life until He took our sin and sickness. And His Word declares that, “As He is, so are we in this world.”

But he was wounded because of our crimes,
crushed because of our sins;
the disciplining that makes us whole fell on him,
and by his bruises* we are healed. Isaiah 53:5 Complete Jewish Bible

Take notice, “the disciplining that makes us whole fell on Him”. What it took to provide Your wholeness, your shalom, your completeness, your never being sick again, fell on Him. He already bore it. If your spouse got out of the car and went and filled the car up with gas and paid for it, would you then turn around and head in to the clerks window to pay for the same gas twice? Of course not! There is something called the law of Double Jeopardy. It is a second prosecution for the same offense after acquittal or conviction or multiple punishments for same offense. This same law applies to the spirit world. As a matter of truth it came out of the spirit world. Jesus has already been tried, convicted and punished for every single one of your sins and crimes past, present and future. Some people find that hard to believe but if you really think about it, unless you are over 2000 years old, all your sins were future sins. He was punished with sickness, with disease, with lack, with The Father forsaking Him so that we would never be punished with any of those things ever again. The Father will never forsake us. Now if you allow it then the devil is just like any criminal. He does not care whether something is illegal or legal he will violate the law if he is allowed to do it. So are you going to say, “Come on in, break in my house (my body, or your families body)” or are you going to get your spiritual twelve gauge and not just cock it but blow his butt right back to hell where he and everything attached to him belongs?

So what are you taking or allowing that Jesus already bore? Take some inventory and then do some spring cleaning. Remember this confession and truth:

“I cannot be punished for any of the things Jesus was punished for and I cannot be punished with any of the things Jesus was punished with!!!”

Remember you are not fighting for victory you are fighting from a place of victory already given to you by Jesus Christ. And that is what makes you more than a conqueror!!!! Amen!

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 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!

TRUTH 4 THOUGHT – WEEKEND EDITION- THE BENEFITS OF RESURRECTION

For this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance–now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant.  Hebrews 9:15 NIV

This weekend is Easter. Many people will be celebrating the Easter holiday, some for the right reasons and some for commercial reasons.  As believers, I’d asked you to look beyond the day and focus on the reason Jesus died.  It would be such a waste to have had experienced such an event and not have intended benefits used and accepted which was The Father’s intention.  Some of these are as follows:

  • To bring man back into right standing with God the Father.
  • To redeem man’s life from all that Adam lost and that sin brought into the Earth realm.
  • To destroy death and him that has the power of death.
  • To make it possible for people to never be sick, broke, in lack and deliver them from every type of dis-ease.
  • To give people life and not just any life but the kind of life that God Himself has (Eternal Life-aionos).

The list goes on and on and as a believer you have a responsibility to find out ALL that belongs to you through the gift of Christ death burial and resurrection.  Take sometime to make sure you are not allowing one benefit of that gift to be neglected.

Happy Resurrection Day and remember RESURRECTION is the end of death!!

All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!
