JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT BEING ONE WITH JESUS- AS HE IS

…. because as He is, so are we in this world. I John 4:17 King James Version

If you are a believer you are a member of thee “Body of Christ”.  It is truly amazing how you can look at natural things and gain an understanding of how spiritual  things are and work.  This is God the Father’s design.  This is also why Jesus used parables.  When you take a deeper look at natural things and go beyond the surface there are so many secrets and revelations that you can gain and have give you understanding.  The book of Proverbs tell us in all of our getting of things, food, money, a wife, children we are to get understanding. Take a look at your hand or foot or any part of your body right now.  You are looking at that body part through the eyes that are in your head.  Without the eyes in your head you would not be able to see that body part.  Also without your head you would not be able to move your hands, fingers or feet without the brain that is in your head. I know that what I am saying seems very rudimentary however, sometimes by overlooking very simple things we can miss deeper things.

Christ is also the head of the church, which is His body. He is the beginning, supreme over all who rise from the dead. So He is first in everything.. Colossians 1:18 New Living Translation

We are the Body of Christ!  Jesus is our Head.  The reason why I brought up the examples of the human body to you above is so you can see and understand how The Body of Christ works.  Can you say, “I will smash my finger with a hammer and it will not affect my head?”  Of course not.  It will affect your head because your head will know and feel the pain.  Pain is not good, it is bad.  In the same respect if you decide, “I will go and get a manicure”, all the goodness from the manicure, the massaging of your hands, the removal of dead skin and all the other benefits are enjoyed by your entire body including your head.  If you go and buy a very nice, comfortable pair of shoes your feet will greatly benefit but your entire head and body will benefit and relax and function easier because the feet are comfortable.   Jesus is our Head.  Jesus is completely perfect, completely healed, completely whole, completely prosperous and completely at peace.  He is Shalom!  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. So if all these things are in Jesus (and they are) and He is our head, then all these things are in and for us as benefits of being connected to Head (Jesus).

For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form, and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority.  Colossians 2:9 New American Standard Bible

…because in Him there is continuously and permanently at home all the fullness of absolute deity in bodily fashion. And you are in Him, having been completely filled full with the present result that you are in a state of fullness, in Him who is the Head of every principality and authority,…. Colossians 2:9-10 Kenneth Wuest Translation

Because we the Body of Christ are connected to the Head who is Jesus,  we HAVE all His completeness, all of His fullness and all of His Shalom.  As He is so ARE WE IN THIS WORLD!!!  Do you see yourself as constantly and continually connected to Jesus?  Do you know that EVERYTHING He has is yours?  Do you believe that?  You must know that you and Jesus are One and when you do your expectation and therefore your manifestation will be only good.  Because of Jesus, you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. Look at some of the things that Proverbs says about the righteous.

The desire of the righteous is only good: but the expectation of the wicked is wrath.  Proverbs 11:23 King James Version The fear of the wicked, it shall come upon him: but the desire of the righteous shall be granted.  Proverbs 10:24 King James Version

Jesus is righteous.  His desire is only good and His desire for you is ONLY GOOD.  As you see by the scripture the desire of the righteous is granted.  Jesus is righteous and His desire is granted and His desires for you are granted.  This applies to you as well because Jesus has made you righteous.  Therefore your desires are good and granted.  Believe that you are One with Jesus.  Believe that He is your Head and that all the goodness that is in the head (Jesus) flows to and through you The Body of Christ.

All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!

JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT SIN NOT HAVING DOMINION OVER YOU

For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.  Romans 6:14 King James Version

Do you realize that sin has no dominion over, if you are under GRACE and not the law?  Sin has no dominion over the believer who is under GRACE(Who is Jesus) and knows it.  That means sickness, disease, debt, lack and any other thing that God declares is not right.  The word sin is the greek word harmartia and it means to miss the mark.  What is God’s mark for your health?  Divine health!  What is God’s mark for your prosperity and abundance?  Jesus said, “I have come that you might have life and have it more abundantly.”  You having more than enough is God’s mark for you.  It is very important today more than ever that believers KNOW what the scripture says and means.  Sin is mentioned 48 times in the New Testament but did you know 47 times it is a noun.   A noun is a person, place or thing. It is not a verb therefore it does not mean sinful acts or actions.  It means the devil, the person of sin, places of sin and the things of sin do not have authority over you because you are no longer under the law but under GRACE.

Now the question is are you under GRACE?  Do you believe Jesus took your place and covered your sin past, present and future?  Or are you still trying to be righteous and be holy by not smoking, drinking, sleeping around and all the other so called big sins that many in the church focus on?  If you are depending on your own actions to make you righteous I have some bad news for you.  You are under the law and sin does have dominion over you.  When you try to live by the law,”I don’t do this, I don’t do that”, you are a debtor to do the whole law.  What that means is, yes you may not sleep around but you gossip.  If you gossip you are guilty of sleeping around as well because Jesus said if you break one law you are guilty of all of it.  That means you are a murderer, a thief, an idolater and all the other things that the law describes.  This is why depending on anything other than the Blood of Jesus and finished work of Christ for your righteousness and holiness is foolishness.  Don’t take my word for it take The Word for it.

For if you are trying to make yourselves right with God by keeping the law, you have been cut off from Christ! You have fallen away from God’s grace.  Galatians 5:4 New Living Translation

Don’t try to live by the law and what you do or don’t do.  The Word already has proven everyone who has tried to do it with the exception of Jesus has failed and failed miserably.  Stay under GRACE Who is Jesus!!!  Jesus loves you and He’s already done the work of righteousness.  All there is for you to do is to believe it and receive it.

All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!

JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT “YOUR” DESIRES

If you maintain a living communion with Me and My words are at home in you, I command you to ask, at once, something for yourself, whatever your heart desires, and it will become yours!  John 15:7 Kenneth Wuest Translation

Desires!!!  We all have them, even God Our Father has desires.  So when Adam messed up the perfect plan that Poppa had created what did God the Father do?  He immediately set His plan in motion to redeem man back to Himself.  Why?  Because that was His desire and He would not be denied.  God the Father has desires and this is where all human beings get their ability and longing to desire.  Yes, in some cases people’s desires are perverted but for the most part people’s desires are generally good.  However I do not want to focus on people with evil desires.  I am going to focus on the believer and what The Word of God says about a righteous person and their desires.  I believe The Word!  How about you?

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

I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus AND I KNOW IT!!!  If you are a believer you should know this too.  There are all kinds of benefits that come with being righteous like being protected, delivered out of trouble, your house being blessed and many others.  But today we are talking about desires and God’s Word says that the desire of the righteous is only good.  I believe that.  Now I have a natural human side and you can in your carnal mind desire things that are not best but that is not what this scripture is talking about.  It’s talking about the real you!  The born again spirit you, that only desires good and has never desired or done any evil at all.  Oh yes, that person is in you and it is the person of Jesus Christ in your born again human spirit.  You should not be afraid of your desires and you should not think them selfish.  The Word declared that they are good and the opening text which is translated from the original Greek says, “ask at once something for YOURSELF, whatever your heart desires, and it will become yours!”  Now you are not going to hear that in a religious church.  But you have heard it from The Word of God.  So believe it and receive it!  Let’s see what else The Word has to say about the desire of a righteous person.

What the wicked fears will come upon him, But the desire of the righteous will be granted.  Proverbs 10:24 King James Version

Oh my goodness! We better read that again to make sure we are not seeing things.

What the wicked fears will come upon him, But the desire of the righteous will be granted. Proverbs 10:24 King James Version

THE DESIRE OF THE RIGHTEOUS WILL BE GRANTED!!!  if you have not already you had better get to desiring somethings.  And I am not talking about a close parking space at the mall.  I’m talking about something BIG from BIG POPPA.  God has His desires fulfilled.  Do you think He wants any less for His children?  Of course not.  I will even share with you a little, no its a big secret.  If you are born again, YOU are one of God’s greatest desires fulfilled.  That is AWESOME!!!  You are a BIG DEAL to Poppa!! If you weren’t He would have never given up His Own Son, His Only Son at the time for you and me.  So you must be ‘sum tin’ special.   Start acting like it and believe these scriptures in Proverbs and in John and in Mark 11:24.  When you do you already have Poppa’s Word that your desire WILL BE GRANTED!

All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!
