JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT SYMPTOMS

So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:18 New International Version

If you ever had a “symptom” of something, I want you to pay close attention to your mind when it happens. Does your mind immediately go to “By Jesus stripe, I were healed!” or do you ask, “Oh man, I wonder what this is?” The truth is it does not matter what it is. If it is a thought or a reasoning or something that is trying to exalt itself against the knowledge of God that is really all you need to know. Just understand that if you are a believer and a symptom of any kind shows up, whether it be in your physical body, your finances or your marriage the purpose of that thing is to lie to you and get you to agree with what you are feeling or even seeing instead of what The Word says about it.  Remember this: you having a symptom or not does not change God’s Word. God’s Word changes symptoms and circumstances.

The Word of God says in I Peter 2:24 “He himself bore our sins” in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by His wound you have been healed.” If a cold or cold symptom show up, understand that’s a lie and it is vying for your agreement. Its trying to see if by chance you will accept it. As a matter of fact and truth the word symptom means a sign of the existence of something especially something undesirable. The actual orgin of the word sympton is the Greek word sumptoma which means chance. But Jesus has not left the health of your body to ‘chance’. He already secured your perfect health with every whiplash and beating he took before going to the cross. As a matter of truth, the Kenneth Wuest Translation of the New Testament translates every word and its meaning directly from the Greek so that you can get a vivid picture of what happened.

“Who Himself carried up to the Cross our sins in His body and offered Himself there as on an altar, doing this in order that we, having died with respect to our sins, might live with respect to righteousness, by means of whose bleeding stripe [the word “stripe” is in the singular here; a picture of our Lord’s back after the scourging, one mass of raw, quivering flesh with no skin remaining, trickling with blood] you were healed.” I Peter 2:24 Kenneth Wuest Translation.

I want you to notice it did not say, ‘By doing everything you suppose to do, you were healed’ It does not say, ‘By keeping all the commandments you were healed’. Am I against keeping the commandments? No but you need to know as a New Testament believer, you are not under the law but under Grace. That does not mean you just go live any kind of way. Once the Grace of God is a revelation to you, you will only love Jesus more because HE IS GRACE! GRACE is not a thing its a Person and that Person is JESUS!!! The One who took the beatings, the spitting, the sickness, the disease, the lack for you. For you it is free but for God the Father it is very costly as it cost Him His Son.

So see it this way, when a symptom tries to see if you will take a chance and accept it remember that SomeOne paid more than untold trillions of dollars for you to NEVER be sick another day in your life. Do not let the enemy play you like a slot machine and pull the handle of your mind and God’s wheels come up with BLESSING and FAVOR and the enemy calls out SICKNESS and DISEASE and then sits back to see if you will accept it. Since I am using this analogy I will just continue and please, I am not condoning or promoting gambling but, God has already designed The Way for you to roll sevens, every time all the time. With the enemy you will simply be shooting craps. Jesus never left you to be a victim to symptoms or to chance, His Way is sure each and every time. He wants you to know that no matter what the world throws at you, you already have the victory because of what He has already done. And that my friend is confidence not chance.

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 New International Version

All the ‘blessed’ to you! Shalom!

JUST DA TRUTH-ABOUT THE BLOOD

Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. Hebrews 9:12 King James Version

There are so many things that The Blood has afforded us, the list goes on and on and something we  will not find out until we are with Jesus Himself.  But there are a few things I want to point out to us today.  The first one is eternal redemption.  The word redemption comes from the greek word apolutrósis.  This word means a release effected by payment of ransom.   When you redeem a coupon at the store some has already paid the fifty five cents or so you may be saving.  Redemption also means to buy back.  God through Jesus’s blood bought us back to Himself.  A price had to be paid and Jesus paid that price.

In fact, according to the law of Moses, nearly everything was purified with blood. For without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness.  Hebrews 9:22 New Living Translation 

Jesus’s priceless blood provided the means for our sins to be forgiven.  Without that blood, there is NO forgiveness of sins.  Its very plain and simple without that blood we would still be in our sins.

In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;  Ephesians 1:7 King James Version

In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Colossians 1:14 King James Version

This redemption and this forgiveness through Jesus’s blood, this was given to us not because of anything we did but simply because of His Grace.  God’s Grace is comprised of His Love, His Kindness and Favor.

The Blood of Jesus cleanses and also reconciles thing back to their proper order or original design, relationship or intention.

For God in all his fullnes was pleased to live in Christ, and through him God reconciled everything to himself.  He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross. Colossians 1:19-20 New Living Translation

Never underestimate the power of The Blood.  It is precious to God.  Make sure it is precious to you.

All the blessed to you! Shalom!!!

Here is a spiritual poem the  I wrote about The Blood a few years ago.  I hope it impacts your consciousness.

The Blood

Purest of pure

And cleanest of clean

Working mighty works

Since it came on the scene

The Mighty Blood of Jesus

Cleanses and corrects

Fulfilling it’s duty

To save and protect

Covering covenant children

Setting sinners so free

His Blood shed so freely

For you and for me

Only by God’s Love

Could He pay such a price

Executed alongside sinners

And made the risen Christ

O’ who now among us

Would give up his life

Paying for others sins

And carrying their strife

Who would be able,

To resist the allure

Of the things he resisted

And still remain pure.

Hallelujah!!! By the Blood

We’ve all been set free

And are able to be called

As righteous as He!

All the “blessed” to you!!!

JUST DA TRUTH- ABOUT IT IS FINISHED!

“1Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and the old earth had disappeared. And the sea was also gone. 2And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven like a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, “Look, God’s home is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them. 4He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.  5And the one sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new!” And then he said to me, “Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true.” 6And he also said, “It is finished!” Revelation 21:6 New Living Translation

One of the main things that believers must understand about The Word of God (which is Jesus) is that things are not done when they are seen or appear to have happened.  They are done as soon as God speaks.  God’s Word is so powerful that as soon as He speaks it, BAM!  It is finished!!!  I want to prove this to you by our opening text.  Many believers think that the things in the book of Revelation are for later but, close examination will show you that many if not all of these things are already done and available to the believer who sees what Jesus said and believes and receives it.    The first verse says,  “I saw“.  Is saw past tense or future tense?  The next verse says, “The old earth had disappeared.”  Here is a secret.  Do not allow time to rob you of the TRUTH and PRESENCE(presentness) of God’s Word.    The main key to deciphering and understanding The Word is The Word Himself: JESUS.  Jesus has authority over time and this is how he forgave all your future sins over two thousand years ago.  Time is subject to Jesus.  Jesus is not subject to time and neither are you, if you believe it. Let’s move on to the third verse.  “Look, God’s home is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them”  Do you realize and know that God lives in you?  Are you conscious of that every second of the day?  This is not a future tense scripture.  God lives in us now.  We are the temple of God.  We are God’s people now.  God is with us now!!!

Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Matthew 1:23 KJV

God is with us now and forever through Jesus Christ.  You see once again how Jesus is at the center and the reason why God is with us.  Lets move on to the fourth verse.  “He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.”  Have you had situations and circumstances where they seem so overwhelming and you did not know how you were going to make it but God came through and fixed it?  That is God wiping the tears from your eyes and removing sorrow and pain and even death.  The believer has no concern about death any longer.  Why?  Death has no more dominion over them because they have died already when they were born again.

Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?  Romans 6:3 KJV Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.  Romans 6:8-9 KJV

Death has no more dominion over Jesus and you are in Him, so death has no dominion over you.  The Word of God says in I John  4:13 that  as He (Jesus) is, so are we IN THIS WORLD!!!  Not when we get to Heaven.  And the remainder of the fourth verse in Revelation 21 says all these things (tears from your eyes, sorrow, pain and death) are gone forever.  Learn to see things the way God sees them.  How do I know that this is true?  Once again the answer is JESUS!!! When Jesus was here on earth, He constantly wiped away tears from peoples eyes by healing the sick, raising the dead, giving back sons to their mothers, daughters to their fathers(Jairus), brothers (Lazurus) to their sister’s(Mary and Martha).  When Jesus came in the house and Peter’s mother in law was sick with a fever Jesus laid His hand on her and healed her and she instantly got up and start making dinner.  No recovery time, no rest after being sick.  She moved from down with a fever to instant health, life and vibrancy.  Now lets look at what Jesus said about us in regards to these works He did.

I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father.  John 14:12  New Living Translation

Now in conjunction with what the verse above just said lets look at the last two verses of our opening text.

5And the one sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new!” And then he said to me, “Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true.” 6And he also said, “It is finished!”

So you have Jesus saying that you will do even greater works than He did after He goes back to The Father.  Has Jesus gone back to The Father? YES!!  He is seated at the right hand on the throne.  And the One on the throne said, not going to say, “Look, (in the King James it says Behold which means look at here), I am making all things new.  We are NEW TESTAMENT believers not old testament.  Then he says, “Write this down for what I tell you is trustworthy and true.  The word is is present tense and the word true in that verse means truth or reality.  And if that is not enough he makes it even more clear about all that He has just said in the preceding verses by declaring, “IT IS FINISHED!!!” Be conscious of this.  Believe this.  Receive this and you will SEE THIS!!!

All the “blessed” to you!!! Shalom!

JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT ALL THINGS ARE NOW READY

And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. 4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. 5 And  he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. 6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.  Revelation 21:3-6  KJV

Do you realize how many things are now complete, done and finished because of Jesus?  If you don’t you could wind up waiting to get things in Heaven that are available and yours to receive right now.  Jesus’ finished work is so amazing and full it takes deliberate and accurate reading to really see that what appears to be meant for later is a finished work and on the menu for order now.  Let’s look at today’s topic scripture and The Holy Ghost and I will show you what we mean. John starts this scripture of talking about he saw a new Heaven and a new Earth.   This tense seems to definitely put this in a different time.  However verse three uses the word ‘Behold”.  The word behold means ‘look or look at here’.  That means there is something to be seen right now.  Next it says the tabernacle of God is with men.  One of Jesus’ Name’s is Immanuel. That Name means God is with us.  Colossians also says, “In Him (Jesus) dwells all the fullness of the God head bodily.  So Jesus Himself is a tabernacle for God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.  The remaining portions of verse three continue to state things that have already happened.  Doesn’t God already dwell with you through Jesus Christ?  Aren’t we already God’s people?  Yes, in fact we are His Children.  We already established that God is with us and He is already our God.  Now lets move on to verse four.

4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

Think about this? Haven’t you had situations where God has wiped the tears from your eyes. He delivered you and brought out and turned that situation around and healed your body.  The main reason for no more tears is that you are born again and delivered from eternal damnation.  You have passed from death unto life because of Christ.  Look at what Romans 6:9 says.

Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. Romans 6:9  King James Version.

If death hath no more dominion over Christ and you are in Christ then death hath no more dominion over you.  Verse four goes on to say there shall be no more sorrow, or crying, neither shall there be any more pain. Why?  Because the former things ARE passed away.  ‘Are’ is past tense.  After this Jesus Himself speaks.

5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. 6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.

Jesus says in verse five that, “Behold, (Look) I make all things new.  Then He told John to write because these words ARE faithful and true.  Faith is always present tense, not going to be.   Then if you were not convinced already, Jesus seals the deal and says, “It is DONE!!”.  The same words He used in the last few minutes on the cross.  It is finished.  This is a revelation in the book of Revelation.  See it the way Jesus sees it and to you it will be done.  No more sorrow, no more pain.  Don’t take one pain big or small in your physical body.  He said the former or old things have passed away.  They are gone.  Don’t wait until you get to Heaven to receive the benefits of eternal life.   Eternal life is yours right here and right now.  Believe and receive!  Amen!!

All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom

JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT “YOU ARE PERFECT!”

For all The Fullness of The Deity dwells in him bodily. And you also are completed in him, who is The Head of all Principalities and Powers  Colossians 2:9-10 Aramaic Bible in Plain English

Have you ever heard or said, “Well, nobody’s perfect!”  Sure you have, we have all said it probably at one time or another.  But let’s see what God’s Word says about it because that is the thing that matters.

The LORD will perfect [that which] concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, [endureth] for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands. Psalm 138:8 KJV

The word perfect in that verse is the Hebrew word gamar.  It means to end, come to an end or complete.

Since the law has only a shadow of the good things to come, and not the actual form of those realities, it can never perfect the worshipers by the same sacrifices they continually offer year after year. Hebrews 10:1 Holman Christian Standard Bible

The word perfect in the above verse is the greek word teleioo.  Very similar to the Hebrew word gamar.  Teleioo means to  to bring to an end, to complete, perfect, to consummate, bring to its end stage.  The verse shows the greatness of the New Testament versus the Old as it says that the law could never perfect the worshippers(you) because it was just a shadow.

For he found fault with them, and he said, “Behold, the days are coming, says THE LORD JEHOVAH, and I will perfect a New Covenant for the family of the house of Israel and for the family of the house of Judah.” Hebrews 8:8 Aramaic Bible in Plain English

We are of the house of Judah just as Jesus was and it is through Him that we are of that house.  We are also spiritual Israel.  The Lord Himself here says the New Covenant will be perfect and it is.  He never said that of the Old covenant.  So what we have is a multiplicity of scriptures that talk about us being or becoming complete or perfect.  How is that?  Because the New Covenant is all about and all for US.  So what does this have to do with you with all your apparent faults and mistakes and missteps?  EVERYTHING!!!  Because you are in Him, in Christ Jesus, The Word says YOU ARE COMPLETE IN HIM. Not that you are going to be but you are.  The law could never make you perfect but Jesus Who is GRACE and TRUTH has made you perfect in and through Himself.  It’s not based on what you done or have not done.  Look at this scripture

In bringing many sons and daughters to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through what He suffered  Hebrews 2:10 New International Version

God the Father made Jesus the man PERFECT through what “HE” suffered.  Not what you suffer.  You have no business suffering because He already suffered for you.  If we all were going to suffer, then Jesus could have stayed at home, saved Himself the beating, the spit, the crown of thorns and everything else.  Because Jesus was made perfect and you are in Him YOU ARE PERFECT!!!!

Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world. I John 4:17 KJV

By this Love(God the Father) is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment, because just as Jesus is, so also are we in this world. I John 4:17 NET Bible

So our love is even made perfect through Jesus.  Our perfection is in Christ not in ourselves. So if Jesus says you are perfect, who are you going to believe? Are you going to believe Him, the world or yourself?

TRUTH 4 THOUGHT…….

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

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 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!

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!!

All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!
