According as His divine power hath given unto us all things that [pertain] unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 2 Peter 1:3-4
Yesterday we began talking about you being a partaker of Jesus’s divine nature. We explained that Jesus is 100% God and 100% Man. This was The Father’s plan to bring man back to the place he lost when Adam sinned and even beyond that place. The scripture above says that His divine power “has given unto us ALL THINGS.” This is not something that is going to be done, it is something that is done. This is part of the finished work of Christ. Anything that Jesus or The Father says is finished is finished. Anything that they say has been given to you has been given and simply needs to be received by faith. Once you receive it by faith YOU HAVE IT!!! Unless a person is born with a deformity or has some type of accident they should have two eyeballs. How would you look at a person who goes around begging and praying for God to give them two eyeballs when they already have two? Yes that is how The Lord feels when we ask Him for things He has already given or said He would do or never do. People pray and ask God to be with them and for “traveling mercies”. They may mean well but it’s still unbelief. Why? Because Jesus said in the Word, “Lo I am with you always even until the end of the Earth.” God also said He would never leave us or forsake us or relax His grip on us.
….for He has said, “I will never [under any circumstances] desert you [nor give you up nor leave you without support, nor will I in any degree leave you helpless], nor will I forsake or let you down or relax My hold on you [assuredly not]!” Hebrews 13:5 Amplified Bible
We talked yesterday about I John 4:17 that declares that “We are like Jesus in this world.” Not when we get to glory or Heaven. RIGHT NOW!!! The Lord Jesus told me something I will share with you a while ago. He said, “Vincent, what you see and what you HAVE, are two different things.” I am still digesting that steak. So when you see your bank account low KNOW that what you HAVE in your Heavenly account far outweighs what you see and that you can bring that into the Earth realm. How? With your mouth.
The following is written, “I believed; therefore, I spoke.” We have that same spirit of faith. We also believe; therefore, we also speak. 2 Corinthians 4:1 God’s Word Translation
Jesus says, “He has given to us ALL THINGS that pertain to life and godliness.” You need to read that, meditate it and when you believe it, speak it!!! IT WILL MANIFEST. We will pick this up again tomorrow.
All the “blessed” to you!!! Shalom!
