….As for you, if you remain in the word which is Mine, truly, My disciples you are. And you shall know the Truth in an experiential way, and the truth shall make you free. John 8:31 -32 Kenneth Wuest Translation
TRUTH!! The final reality! Not the final frontier but thee final reality. Many people including some believers do not know how powerful the truth really is even though Jesus has just given the answer in the above scripture. Yes they have read it and quoted it and confessed it. They heard many sermons on it but what you have to realize and know is Salvation is personal. Not only is Salvation personal but Salvation is a Person. And Who might that person be? None other than our very own Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Jesus’s Name, Yeshua in Hebrew means Yahweh Saves. That is salvation. So His very name means Salvation but not just from hell but from sickness, disease, debt and lack and any other form of unrighteousness. “Well when is Jesus gonna do it because I sho’ need it!!” It is finished!!! He already did it a long, long time ago. The question is have you received it as The Truth, as Your Truth, Your Final Reality?
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. John 14:6 NIV
Knowing the Truth(JESUS) is key to you being able to rest. And when I say this I mean naturally and spiritually resting. Let me show you what I mean. You take two believers both are saved, both of them are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. Both are going to Heaven. Let’s say both of them have children. You take them both and give them a bad medical report about one of their children. You follow both believers to their home. One is flipping out and devastated by the report and the other is doing the same thing they always did before the report came up. What’s the difference? One KNOWS The Truth and the other knows of The Truth. The believer that is at rest is at rest for a very simple reason. They were at rest when everything was fine. They know that a report does not change The Word of God. The word truth in the New Testament is the greek word aleithia and it means final reality. Final reality is when you strip off all the makeup, all the shaper shirts and Spanx and everything else and what you have is the naked unadulterated Word which lives and abides forever Who is JESUS!!!! Knowing the Truth is simply knowing JESUS!! Jesus IS The Word!!
Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. John 17:17
When Jesus prayed this to the Father He knew He was talking about Himself and The Word later confirms this.
It is because of Him that you are in Christ Jesus, Who has been become for us wisdom from God: our righteousness, holiness(or sanctification) and redemption. I Corinthians 1:30 Berean Study Bible
Jesus is our sanctification. Without Him we are not sanctified. He sanctified us through and with His Blood.
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. I John 1:7 NIV
So again what does this have to do with rest? When a person knows that Jesus has purified them from ALL sin, they know that any sickness is a lying symptom because sickness comes as a result of sin. I am not and did not say that you are sick because you sinned if you are a believer. I said it was a lying symptom that the enemy has tried to put on you illegally to see if you will take it. Its not legal to break into people’s homes but people still do it. Well they learned that from the devil. He knows legally and truthfully he has no rights to touch a believer and he can’t. He has to plant the thought in their mind which is a lie then get them to say it and believe it. (Remember Jesus said TAKE NO THOUGHT SAYING?) If he gets them to take the thought then they manifest the thing with their own faith power. Did you know the word symptom comes from the Greek word sumptoma which means chance? The devil says I am going to float this symptom by them and maybe per chance they will accept it. Then the symptom comes and that person thinks, “I think I’m catching the flu“. Then someone hears them cough and ask if they are alright and they SAY, “I think I’m catching the flu.” Now they have taken the thought and said it. Whosoever shall say to this mountain or say to this disease, “I think I’m catching you!!” And the disease answers back, “I’m so glad you caught me, I thought I was gonna have to move on to another person but you caught me.” I tell you what, a symptom may try to come but I aint “catching it” no more than I would reach out to catch a rattlesnake if someone threw it at me. When you know the Truth:Jesus you can rest and He will even teach you how to talk because He was the only One that should have been catching disease at all because He took on purpose all our diseases, sins and pains on the Cross SO YOU WOULD NOT HAVE TO TAKE THEM TOO!!! Now think about that Truth then REST in your healing!
All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!!!
