St John 1:16 tells us: And of his fullness have all we received, and grace for grace. This means all believers possess continuous grace, power and ability. God foresaw the fall of Adam and Eve. He already made full provisions for our restoration back to Himself. He invites all humankind to partake of these provisions!
When you know that God loves you, you will put your confidence in Him.
As we continue believing, God’s grace comes in and take us beyond what we are able to do.
Christians should always make time to pray and draw closer to God. We will never uncover what God has already supplied for us until we draw closer. If we cannot make time for God…We are far too busy.
We will never get to heaven until we are transformed into a new creation. Only God can do this. This body is not equipped to handle heaven. If we will not stay still and let him do His mighty works in us, we stay stained and marked as the devils property. The unsaved must ask Jesus into their life to clean them up and releases them from being a brainwashed slave to the accuser who is always sewing negative things into our minds.
Once the unsaved accepts Him, they are justified, just as if they never sinned yet constantly reminded by the Holy Ghost that we are much better than our old nature. God do not keep accusing us of our wrongs, He transforms our minds through the Word, the working of the Holy Spirit so we are able to do the right thing in his sight. We are free people! FREE from slavery. We don’t have to succumb to what the devil tells us to do. Resist the devil just like you would resist the enemy on the battle field. Stay alert and stay close to God so he cannot have his way with you.
Some people just love sin so much that they invite it in and relish the so-called good life only on this earth. They are not concerned about their eternity because they actually think that after death everything is all over. Whooping it up might last for a lifetime, but when it comes time to give out wages for what you did or did not do here on this earth, well, that is a completely different story. In this case, the wages are higher than one would probably care to accept. The wages of sin is death, but the GIFT of God is eternal life. Why do people reject eternal life? Because they don’t believe it exist.
After physical death, our real life begins with who we really are and we will either spend it in heaven or hell. We simply go back to being what we are without the human body suits we are in… spirit beings. However, your decision here on this earth determines your eternal destiny. Don’t get it twisted too bad where you can’t get untangled. Watch and pray that you do not enter into temptation..(Matthew 26:41)
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Romans 12:2 (KJV)
Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
Healing will not manifest physically, mentally, or financially unless one actually believe it. A person must take hold of it and run with joy telling it to people believing Gods Word that it is already done! You see, that’s crazy to the human mind. We scare the unsaved when we are bold like that.
When under pressure, we often discover what we believe.A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh. (Luke 6:45)
You can speak “I am healed by his stripes” However when the doctors delivers a bad report of your health… What comes forth out of your mouth at that moment is what you really believe.
There is an abundance of treasure waiting for us to take hold of us, why don’t we take them? (Mark 5:36)
As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.(Luke 8:50)
But when Jesus heard it, he answered him, saying, Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole.
But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19
Humans typically believe what they see, hear, taste, feel and smell. If none of these attributes are present, we tend to dismiss the idea as not real, ridiculous, stupid or bizarre or whatever.
However, most humans are not aware that they we are spirits and must learn how to operate in the spiritual realm in order to have a relationship and close bond with God. Read the first chapter on Genesis how God breathe life into us. It was his life…but when Adam and Eve switched out they forfeited all they had and unfortunately the same went for us until Jesus Came and Delivered those who truly believe thou they never saw Jesus with their eyes. Demonic oppression is the only thing stopping us from reaching our ultimate powers we have through Christ.
Applied pressure causes many to cave in, give up, quit, then crash and burn.
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. Luke 21:36
Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. Mark 13:33
Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. Matthew 26:41
Chapter 1 verse 26 of the book of Genesis in the Bible tells us that God gave us dominion over all living creatures. Genesis 9:2 states that: All the animals of the earth, all the birds of the sky, all the small animals that scurry along the ground, and all the fish in the sea will look on you with fear and terror. I have placed them in your power.
The very moment Eve started listening to a serpent; this was proof that she did not understand the part about her and Adam having dominion over all the animals.
She took the word of the serpent as more valuable than that of God. Furthermore, Eve outright disobeyed because she thought that she was missing out on something. The enemy introduced fear of loss into Eve’s mind. Genesis 3:1 in the New Living Translation (NLT) tells us: The serpent was the shrewdest of all the wild animals the LORD God had made. One day he asked the woman, “Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from any of the trees in the garden?”
It is plain to see that he was aiming to confuse and manipulate.
The serpent or the enemy of God tried the same trick on Jesus in Luke 4:3 where it states: And the devil said unto him, if thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread. God had already told Jesus that He was His beloved Son, in whom He is well pleased. Jesus assured the enemy that He knew his identity and he did not have to do anything to prove it. Overall, the enemy tries to get us to act upon something.
Those who are spiritually weak are prime targets. They are the groper’s spoke of in Deuteronomy 28:29 where it states: You will grope around in broad daylight like a blind person groping in the darkness, but you will not find your way. You will be oppressed and robbed continually, and no one will come to save you. However, God did come to save us.
In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
A Christian must know who he or she is in Christ. In Matthew 16:15 Jesus asked his disciples…But whom say ye that I am”? Then comes a most profound revelation contained in Matthew 16:16-19 stating: And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
God literally gave us supernatural abilities to loose the hands of the enemy and to bind him where he has no control. We have the power not to submit to sin and deception. Believers receive the keys to the kingdom of heaven and have power to change situations and the gates of hell shall not prevail over this power.
2 Corinthians 10:5 says we are now capable of …Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
God works in surrendered true believers. 2 Corinthians 13:5 tells us to:
Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?
It is God in you that is performing what you otherwise could not accomplish. Know your identity, you in Christ, your name is VICTORY!!!
Ephesians 1:22-23. It states; God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church. And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with himself.
1 Peter 2:5 NLT states: And you are living stones that God is building into his spiritual temple. What’s more, you are his holy priests. Through the mediation of Jesus Christ, you offer spiritual sacrifices that please God.
The original Greek translation of the word Church means the called out ones. The English version means “dedicated to the Lord. Commonly used to refer to a holy place or temple, it typically implies a sacred building or temple.
And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.
Romans 12:5: states:
So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
Ephesians 2:21 We are carefully joined together in him, becoming a holy temple for the Lord. Through him you Gentiles are also being made part of this dwelling where God lives by his Spirit.
The Bible confirms that we are the church.
Ephesians 4:11-13 further explains: Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ.
This will continue until we all come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God’s Son that we will be mature in the Lord, measuring up to the full and complete standard of Christ. In reality, the saved or the “called out” come together in a collective gathering at an appointed time and place.
Saints are ministered to through singing, praising, and teachings.
The Church building is where Christians assemble to receive in depth knowledge from chosen minister/teachers of the Lord. Take your time to choose what church you should attend, for there are many false prophets out there. However, do not let them stop you from gathering. God has a special plan for them. They must answer to God for such behavior. We are not the judge.
Heavenly Father, these days are days of sorrow and great trickery. I thank you for being ever-present in my life and in all the decisions that I am faced with. I ask forgiveness of any decision that I have made that is not in position with your will. Furthermore, Lord, I need You to get involved in my life in a powerful way and grant me the skill to separate of the “Spirit” of truth from the spirit of error.
Teach me to examine the spirits to see whether they are from You (1John 4:1). Let your word prick my heart and cause me to practice how to distinguish the good from evil so I will be unpolluted and blameless for the day of “Christ”, help my love to flourish more and more in all judgment
Lord, allow my eyes to see the disguises of “Satan” In the name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, show me through your eyes, let me hear with a spiritual ear and embrace me with Your mighty power. Father, I thank you for hearing my prayer. I trust and have faith that You are giving me that special ability to discern what your will is for me. I thank you Lord, in the name of Jesus, ….Give me Your Eyes So I can See.
