JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT YOU “ARE” A NEW CREATION!

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV

Think about this.  What if you had a 2010 Honda Civic fully loaded. You purchased it used and find out that the owner did not get the oil changed regularly so it messed up the engine and you have to now get a new engine. Costly? Yes!  Worth it? Definitely.   A new engine cost about 3 grand.  A new car on average about 20 grand.  The cost of the car is not today’s message but the new engine is.  The engine is the heart of the car. It is what gives the car its power and determines how the car will run. Let’s say you found out in addition to getting a new engine for a few hundred more, you could put a more powerful engine in the car and you decided to go that route.  When we look at the topic scripture above that is what that scripture is talking about.   If any man accepts and is IN Christ he or she is a new creation a being that did not exist before.  Old things ARE passed away.  Behold!(That word means look closely and see or realize) ALL THINGS ARE BECOME NEW!

“But Brother Vincent I am in Christ and I still have the same dry, rusty hands I had before I got saved!!!” True!  But just like the car, we did not replace the body of the car.  The body of the car was not defective only the engine.  This is how we were. Because of what Adam did we all had a dead spirit or defective battery in us.  When you got born again that old dead spirit died completely and was taken away with Jesus and nailed to the Cross.  You received a brand new spirit that is “eternally alive!”  This is what eternal life is and much more.  You don’t just get eternal life when you go to Heaven. YOU HAVE IT RIGHT NOW!!!  With that new eternal spirit which comes from the Spirit of God you are now more powerful than you ever were before being born again and you will REMAIN that way forever. The issue is most people don’t know this and they live the same way they did before the got saved.

Truth is your spirit is so alive and full of life and the resurrection power of God that it can rejuvenate and effect even your physical body.  The Word of God says so!!!!  Don’t take my word for it. Take The Word for it!!!!

And if the Spirit of Him(God the Father) Who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you. Romans 8:11 NIV

Do you see that? Because God’s very own Spirit lives in you thru Christ Jesus, that Spirit has the ability to give life to even your mortal body.  That’s the body you have right now! Not your glorified body you will get later.  Now Moses did not have that Spirit living IN HIM, but it did come ON HIM by Him spending time in God’s presence.  The Bible says that Moses when he died, his eyes were not dim, neither was his natural force or vigor and strength abated or diminished.  He had to go climb a mountain just to die. Thats no small feat at 120 years old.  Imagine what you can do with that Spirit living in you not just on you.    That Spirit has the power to renew your youth and restore you to your teenage years in strength, energy and vitality. Think about that and believe.  Think about that and receive.

All the blessed to you!!! Shalom!

JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT WORKING FOR JESUS

And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Colossians 3:23 KJV

Have you ever felt like, “I really don’t feel like working today or I really don’t feel like giving it my all today?”  Sure, we all have.  Let’s take sometime and look at something you may have not thought about and lets put it in bullet form to look at it more clearly.

  • Do you think that Jesus felt like being arrested for no reason?
  • Do you think that Jesus felt like being beaten until there was no skin at all left on His back?
  • Do you think Jesus felt like being spit on?
  • Do you think Jesus felt like having 2 to 3 inch thorns pressed and beaten with a stick into his skull?
  • Do you think Jesus felt like being pierced in the side and hung on the Cross?

And last but not least here is the BIG ONE. Many people do not realize that Jesus’s biggest issue was not the beatings and whippings and crown of thorns.  That may come as a surprise to some but Jesus had NEVER ever been or felt what it was like to be not connected to His Father for millions of years.  And now because of OUR sin He would be for a period of time. So….

  • Do you think Jesus felt like being separated from His Father?

What is my point?  The point is Jesus did not feel like doing any of these things but He was not run or making decisions based on his feelings or emotions.  He was controlled by LOVE and PURPOSE which is God the Father.  He was thinking about you and me.  So when you are at your job or whatever you do even at home as a wife or husband or a child, do your chores or assignment as if it was for Jesus. When you do He will strengthen you to do it heartily or from the heart.  And He will also reward you greater than a simple paycheck.

All the “blessed” to you! Shalom!!!

JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT THE WORD OF HIS GRACE

And now I commend you to God and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up and to give you the inheritance among all those who are sanctified. Acts 20:32 English Standard Version.

GRACE is the Person of Jesus. Grace is extremely important and it is important for you to know why it is important. When Paul was leaving the brethren at the church at Ephesus, he left them with the statement that you see in the above mentioned scripture. The word commend there can be replaced by the word commit. So Paul said, “I commit you to God and The Word of His Grace. He also pointed out two things that The Word of Grace can do.

  • Build you up.
  • Give you an inheritance among those who are sanctified.

The Law does just the opposite. It tears you down with guilt, sin and condemnation. It robs people of their inheritance because when people try to live by the law it brings them back under the curse. Romans 6:14 tells us that sin has no dominion over us because we are not under the law but under grace. Focus on God’s Grace which is and is in Christ Jesus. Don’t try to live by the law because The Word has already made a declaration about the law.

For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes. Romans 10:4 English Standard Version.

Christ is the end of the law to everyone who believes. Believe in the Grace of God and receive what He has for you.

Have a great weekend!!!

All the Blessed to you!!! Shalom!

TRUTH 4 THOUGHT WEEKEND EDITION-YOUR MOST HOLY FAITH

But, as for you, divinely loved ones, building yourselves up constantly in the sphere of and by means of your most holy Faith, and as constantly praying in the sphere of and by means of the Holy Spirit, with watchful care keep yourselves within the sphere of God’s love, expectantly looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ resulting in life eternal. Jude 1:20 Kenneth Wuest Translation

What is your most “holy faith?”   Strong’s dictionary describes it as  faith  which came from God and is therefore to be heeded most sacredly.  The word holy is the Greek word hagios and it means to be separate or set apart for God by God for an exclusive reason or purpose or person.  What that means is that God the Father has set apart praying in the Spirit FOR YOU as a gift.  This is similar to the way Jesus was set apart as a gift for us.  Did you know that if you are a believer you were set apart by the Father as a gift for Jesus?  YOU ARE HOLY!  Let’s prove that Jesus is a gift from the Father to you and you are a gift to Jesus by The Word.

Answered Jesus and said to her, If you knew the gratuitous gift of God, and Who it is Who is saying to you, Give me to drink, you would in that case have asked Him and He would have given to you water which is alive.  John 4;10 Kenneth Wuest Translation

Here Jesus is talking to the woman at the well and tell her if she only knew the gratuitous gift of God in which He was speaking of Himself.  So not only was Jesus a gift but He knew He was a gift.  This indicates to us that we should know who and what we are because Jesus knows Who and What He is. Now lets look at us being a gift to Jesus.

The sheep which are mine are in the habit of listening to my voice, and I know them by experience, and they take the same road that I take with me, and I give to them life eternal. And they shall positively not perish, never. And no one will snatch them by force out of my hand. My Father who gave them to me as a permanent gift is greater than all. And no one is able to be snatching them by force out of the hand of my Father. I and the Father are one in essence.  John 10:27-30 Kenneth Wuest Translation

So here Jesus details that ‘the sheep which are His’, thats believers, were given to Him by The Father as a permanent gift.  You were separated out as belonging to Jesus and Jesus was set apart as belonging to you.  You belong to Him, He belongs to you.  You’re His sweetheart!!   I know that is a secular song but I like to sing it to myself but see God the Father singing it to me. Do you know what the word sweetheart means?    It means a person that one is in love with. It also means a particularly lovable or pleasing person.  This is the ONLY way God sees you because He sees you thru Christ.   He does not see your faults or failures and missteps because He put those away and placed all your sins and missing the marks on Christ. Many believers don’t understand or know this.  Unfortunately they think God is waiting for them to blow it so He can fry them with a lighting bolt for doing wrong.  But that is not my God or my Father. He is Love. He is Grace. Jesus and He are One and the Bible says Jesus is FULL of GRACE and TRUTH.  And the Father has set aside Jesus and all of His Grace and Truth and Love and Favor just for you!.  Think about that this weekend. Think about all the Holy or set apart things the Father already has given to you and receive them by faith.

All the ‘blessed’ to you! Shalom!!!

 

JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT OUR GOD OF DELIVERANCE(S)

God is to us a God of deliverances; And to GOD the Lord belong escapes from death. Psalms 68:20 New American Standard Bible

I thank Big Poppa that He is a not a one shot canon.  HE IS LIMITLESS!!! And He has provided that same abundant life to us thru Yeshua:JESUS!  Jesus says in John 10:10 that He came that we might HAVE life and HAVE it in super abundance.  That is a lot of life, a lot of health, a lot of peace, a lot of joy, a lot of favor and so many other things that we will be discovering thorough out eternity. If you look at Jesus He is the real SUPERMAN and as He is so are you.  Did you know that the story of Superman was created by Jews and has it origin in God the Father and God the Son.  The name Jor-El means father and the name Kal-El means son.  A father sends his son to Earth and that son grows up and does mighty acts and deed that save, protect and help mankind.  Sound familiar? Superman also has an ‘S’ on his chest and I want to talk to you about some of the ‘s that are in the scripture above.

God is to us a God of deliverances; And to GOD the Lord belong escapes from death. Psalms 68:20 New American Standard Bible

Notice the beginning part of the scripture did not say God is a God of deliverance.  It reads, God is to us a God of deliverances.  This means that God has multiple deliverances for US.  So no matter how many situations you face today or in the past or in the future Poppa has DELIVERANCES for you.  Even if it is a life threatening situation or disease he still speaks specifically about that.  Look at the next part of the verse.

And to GOD the Lord belong escapes from death.

Notice the ‘s’ on escape.  Poppa has ESCAPES from death.  Escapes from physical death. Escapes from spiritual death all thru Christ Jesus.  When you accept and receive Christ as your Lord and Savior and His righteousness as your righteousness, that righteousness DELIVERS you from death.  Don’t take my word for it, TAKE The Word for it.

In the path of righteousness is life, and in its pathway there is no death.  Proverbs 12:28 English Standard Version

In the path of righteousness THERE IS NO death.  Righteosness is one of escapes from death. Now what believers need to understand is that death takes on many forms such as sickness, disease, weakness, lack, chronic fatigue, failure.  Death operates in unbelievers lives in many cases and they are not even aware that they are dead or are functioning in death or participating with death in many ways thru their words and actions.  But a believer, a righteous person WHO KNOWS they are righteous HAS RIGHTS and death has no authority or power over him or her.  When they know this and exercise their God-given authority even death and every other thing has to back up, bow down and obey that believer because of JESUS!!!!

Look at Proverbs 11:4  ….but righteousness delivers from death.

You need to know that your Daddy, your Poppa, your God is a God of DELIVERANCES!!! And that those deliverances include even deliverance from death in all of its ways shapes and forms.  Amen!

All the “blessed” to you!  Shalom!!!

JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT BEING ONE WITH JESUS – PART 4

…. 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 thing are and they work. This is God the Father’s design. This is also why Jesus used parables. When you take a deeper look at natural things, going beyond the surface there are so many secrets and revelations that you can gain and that can 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 and 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 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 BEING ONE WITH JESUS – PART 3

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

One of my favorite words is the word SHALOM. It is a great word and it reminds me of God the Father because although it is one word, it means many things and they are all GOOD just like God the Father. According to Strong’s Concordance 7965 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. Now think about this? If you had to live life and all you had was Jesus and Shalom, do you think you could be content and happy and at total peace? I can. I mean look at the meaning….EVERYTHING is there.

This is how Jesus lived while here on the Earth. He lived in complete wholeness and complete health. You cannot find one scripture in the BIble where Jesus was sick one day (until He bore our diseases on the Cross). Jesus was never in lack. He lived in complete prosperity and abundance at all times. Jesus lived in freedom from agitation or discord. Even when people were trying to kill him, Jesus was just as calm and composed, staying in the Love of God as if he was walking through a flower garden. How did He do this? SHALOM. Shalom is a great and powerful blessing from Jesus that just like His Name is given to us. Look at what Jesus said.

“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

That word ‘leaving’ there means to send away. Jesus sent shalom away from Himself and then gave (which means to offer) His very own Shalom to us. He sent His Shalom away because He did not need it where He was going. In Heaven there is no sickness so you don’t need health. There is no lack or poverty there so you don’t need prosperity in Heaven. There is no danger in Heaven so there is no need for safety. However here on Earth, there is sickness, danger and lack that exist as a lie. But through Christ, Shalom exist as the truth for those who believe and receive His Shalom. So in our opening text Paul prayed a prayer that Jesus had already answered,….by leaving and giving us His Shalom. Paul also called Him Who He is, The Lord of Shalom. It’s not a lesser version or quality of Shalom than what Jesus had. It is the exact same Shalom that Jesus had. His very own personal Shalom. And it is yours for the taking. The word receive is the greek word lambano and it means to take.

BE SURE TO RECEIVE HIS SHALOM!!!

All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!

JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT BEING ONE WITH JESUS CONT’D & “THE NAME”

Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.  Hebrews 1:4  King James Version

How did Jesus obtain His Name?  Have you ever thought about that?  According to the scripture above He inherited it.  This is something that you must take and chew on like a spiritual steak.  We talked about previously having communion with The Word, spending time and having intercourse with The Word, becoming One with Him.  If you are born again you are an heir of God and you are also a joint heir with Jesus Christ.  This is why Christianity is not a religion but a relationship.  Christianity is FAMILY that is even more close than your natural blood family.  God IS your Father.  Jesus IS your brother.  Take a look at how Jesus acknowledged this change after He was raised from the dead.

Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”  Matthew 28:10  New International Version

Before he died, Jesus always referred to them as His disciples.  But now after He has risen from the dead and the finished work is complete and He has reconciled all of us back to the Father He now calls them “my brothers.”  THAT’S FAMILY.  They are now just like Him.  Jesus prayed in John 17 that they would be ONE with Him even as He and The Father are ONE.  If anyone gets their prayer answered you better believe Jesus does (and so do you).

And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ;  Romans 8:17 King James Version

Since you are a joint heir with Christ everything Christ has and gets is yours.  If not, then you are not joint.  Joint means that you share equally in all things.  Everything that one heir gets the others get equally.  EVERYTHING means EVERYTHING.  Now in our opening text we see that Jesus inherited His Name.  His Name is part of His inheritance and if it is a part of His inheritance then guess who else inherits  THE NAME?  You do!!!  Jesus’s Name is part of your eternal inheritance.

That is why He is the one who mediates a new covenant between God and people, so that all who are called can receive the eternal inheritance God has promised them. For Christ died to set them free from the penalty of the sins they had committed under that first covenant.  Hebrews 9:15 New Living Translation

You have an ‘eternal inheritance’ that God the Father, Poppa has promised you.  Jesus’s Name has been given to you.

And there is no salvation in any other man, for there is no other name under Heaven given to the children of men by which it is necessary to receive life. Acts 4:12 Aramaic Bible in Plain English

The Name has been given to us as an inheritance just as it was given to Jesus by inheritance.  The Name of Jesus IS YOURS!!!  When you realize that THE NAME of Jesus is yours and all the power, all the glory, all the health, all the life, all the strength, all the wisdom, all the righteousness, all the holiness that comes with that Name BELONGS to you, you will begin to do the greater works effortlessly.  Why?  Because it’s not you.  It’s Jesus in you working thru His Name.  It is all because of the Lord Jesus that we HAVE all that we HAVE but the key is you HAVE to know that you HAVE IT!!!  If you don’t have the keys to your car you don’t have any confidence or any assurance that you can get in your car at that moment.  A rich man or rich woman’s  spouse has access to all the resources and wealth of their spouse by law.  This is a legal transaction. Taking the name of their spouse gives them legal access to those resources because they are considered the same, one.  Look at what Peter said here in Acts 3:6 when he was talking to the man at the gate called beautiful who was lame.

Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.”  Acts 3:6 New International Version

Did you notice what Peter said?  He said, “but what I do HAVE I give to you.”  Then Peter immediately gives the man THE NAME.  What is key here is that Peter knew HE HAD THE NAME.  That word ‘have’ there is the greek word echo.  Echo means I have, hold or possess.  Peter knew he had THE NAME of Jesus and all the power and ability of it.  In addition to that he later took no credit for it and then explained that it was not him but THE NAME that strengthened, raised up and gave that once lame man perfect health.  So the man just did not get his legs healed, if there was anything else going on in his body that was fixed as well because it says the man was given perfect health.  Other translations say complete soundness which is derived from the Word shalom.

“And on the basis of faith in His name, it is the name of Jesus which has strengthened this man whom you see and know; and the faith which comes through Him has given him this perfect health in the presence of you all. Acts 3:16 New American Standard Bible And upon the ground of our faith in His Name, this man whom you are attentively gazing at with a critical, discerning eye and whom you positively identify as the person you know- His Name made him strong, and the faith which is exercised through Him gave to him this entire soundness in the sight of all of you. Acts 3:16 Kenneth Wuest Translation 

So know that THE NAME is yours!!! It is yours by inheritance just as Jesus inherited it.  Use it like its yours, like it belongs to you because IT DOES!!!!

All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!

TRUTH 4 THOUGHT- WEEKEND EDITION-CLEANSED FROM “ALL” UNRIGHTEOUSNESS

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us [our] sins, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. I John 1:9  Darby Translation

Once again here we are talking about the grand topic of RIGHTEOUSNESS.  It is grand indeed as the Lord Jesus told us to seek it first and then everything else would be added to us. This passage of scripture is a blessing.  It is also a means of controversy because of the first part.  Some people say you have to confess every single sin you ever commit.  Some people say no when you confess that you are a sinner and receive Jesus that is all that is necessary.  I am not going to get into a debate about that today because that is not our focus.  I will share with you what the scripture says ensures your salvation.

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  Romans 10:9 New Living Translation

The same Holy Ghost who had John write I John is the same Holy Ghost that spoke to Paul in Romans.  Yet no mention of confessing of sins is in this verse in Romans 10:9.  Interesting indeed.  By acknowledging Jesus as Lord and that God raised Him from the dead something obviously is done in that transaction. But I want you to focus on  the truth that when you confess Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, this is an acknowledgement of what Jesus did and that you needed a Lord and you are also acknowledging the reason Jesus died and was resurrected.  Jesus died for our sins.  This acceptance of Jesus as resurrected Lord is a confession and as a result, He is faithful and righteous to cleanse you from ALL unrighteousness or you can say He is faithful and righteous to make you righteous just like Him.  Did Jesus ever confess to being a sinner?  No.  But yet He took all of our sins which by that ‘act‘ placed Him with us as a sinner and God treated Him as such on the cross because He took our sins by faith just as if He had committed them all.

And he took all of our sins and lifted them in His body to the cross, for as we are dead to sin, we shall live in His righteousness, for by His scars you have been healed. 1 Peter 2:24  Aramaic Bible in Plain English

Jesus took our punishment for sin which is rebellion against the will of God the Father and gave us His righteousness which is simply submission to the will of God.  Sin simply means missing the mark.  Righteousness is what is right from God’s viewpoint.  Sickness is sin.  Health IS His righteousness.  Poverty is sin.  Abundance is His righteousness.  Why? Because that is what God and Jesus have.  God and Jesus are not broke or in lack.  They live in opulent abundance.  Some Christians believe that it is holy or righteous to be broke. Nothing could be further from the truth.  Poverty is sin.  Not having enough is sin therefore it is unrighteousness. The Father sent Jesus so He could give us back everything Adam lost and more. God has and is righteous and that righteousness now BELONGS to us because of Jesus.  Anything contrary to what God has or is is unrighteousness.  What does The Word say about unrighteousness.

Neither yield your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.  Romans 6:13 KJV

The Word yield means to allow, to give place.  If you are born again, you are dead to sin and alive to Christ and His Righteousness.  Romans 6:14 says, “Sin shall not which means, it does not have dominion or rulership or authority over you.”  Why?  Because you are not under the law but under grace, God’s unmerited, undeserved favor given to us in and through Christ Jesus.  We are free from sin. Through Him everyone who believes is set free from every sin, a justification you were not able to obtain under the law of Moses.  Acts 13:39  NIV

Do you see it?  Sickness is sin.  Health is righteousness or right.  Poverty and lack is sin.  Abundance and being RICH IS RIGHTEOUSNESS.   You don’t have to seek to be rich, rich comes with the righteousness.  You don’t have to seek health,  health comes with the righteousness.  This is why Jesus told us to seek first  the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness.  Jesus’s Blood has cleansed you and me and everyone who accepts Him from ALL  unrighteousness. If you believe that then since you are cleansed the only thing left is RIGHTEOUSNESS!!!  You simply have to know it and believe it and receive it and it is yours and IT WILL BE MADE MANIFEST.  But it’s not there just when you see it.  It’s there and yours RIGHT NOW!!!!  TAKE IT!!!

All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!

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  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.” How ever 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 devil, break in my house (my body, or your families body)” or are you going to get your spiritual twelve gauge and not just load the shell in the chamber but  pull the trigger and 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!
