HE LIFTED UP OUR ILLNESS, HE CARRIED OUR PAIN.


When we believe wrongly, we are doomed to fail in our walk with God. The religion of “I need to try to become” always renders the religion of “who I am in Christ” null and void. There is no glory in self efforts, except His efforts for our total life prosperity and wholeness, on the Cross of Calvary.

Jeremiah 33:6 ESV Behold, I will bring to it health and healing, and I will heal them and reveal to them abundance of prosperity and security”.

…THIS IS FULFILLED IN CHRIST JESUS Thank God we are not the sick and poor by any means, through His life. He has revealed in us; health, healing, and abundance of prosperity. It  takes faith to see life from a prosperity perspective, instead of the weak, poor, miserable, and victim mentality. I can understand how challenging life can be sometimes…the ill health, rejection, pain, poverty, stress, anxiety, and all the everyday uncertainties. These underlying challenges of the fallen world do not nullify the riches and realities of the new covenant, in Christ Jesus. Friend, God’s word can be accessed through believing. Your total life prosperity is a done deal in Christ. The underlying principle of victorious christian life is having right believing. The just shall always live by faith. Having the right opinion about God and right persuasions in our heart. When we believe wrongly, we are doomed to fail in our walk with God. The religion of “I need to try to become” always renders the religion of “who I am in Christ” null and void. There is no glory in self efforts, except His efforts for our total life prosperity and wholeness, on the Cross of Calvary.

Isaiah 53:4-5 (NIVUK) Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.

All the agonizing pain Jesus had to go through on the cross of Calvary was to set things right, once and for all. He was to suffer in our place that we might experience a newness of life in His resurrection. If He took it away, then I don’t need to carry it again. The focal point of the gospel is the cross. It was at the cross that the Savior swapped places with me that I may celebrate the quality life, right now. Sickness, pain, and diseases are not master over your life anymore. You now inherited a brand new of life in your born again spirit. The Scripture above says; “Surely, He took up our pain and bore our suffering…” The Hebrew word ‘aken (truly, firmly, surely, we know, in fact) from the root word kuwn which means to be fixed, firmly established, be restored. There is no doubt and uncertainty for the believer who feels like the sky is falling on their head. You can hope again, because Christ Jesus has established and fixed your life firmly on His finished work, without shaking. He did it by taking your pain and having to lift your suffering in His body, for you to share in His quality life. The NET renders it this way, in verse four of Isaiah 53…But he lifted up our illnesses, he carried our pain; even though we thought he was being punished, attacked by God, and afflicted for something he had done.

WHEN I THINK OF HIS DEATH Anytime you think of Jesus death, don’t blame Judas, the Jews, the Pharisees or anybody. Just think about your position in Him through His death. To think that He was punished by the soldiers with cruelty,  leaves scars of anger in our hearts against His killers, and that dismisses the reality of His death in our lives. Jesus was pierced for your transgression. He was crushed for your iniquities. The punishment that ensures a life of peace, on this side of eternity was upon Him. Whenever I watch the Passion of Christ, I wish I was there to have

been the hero who saved Him from all the atrocities He had to go through. Tears will run through my eyes with anger against Judas and most of the disciples who deserted Him. At the end of the day, the Saviors love towards me is what I need to grasp. He died for what i did that I may share in His life. (See Romans 6:3-5) This is an established reality and there is no demon or power which can revert what Christ has wrought for you and I on the tree. Today, we can boldly say, through the trials and pain; “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us (because it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”) 14 in order that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham would come to the Gentiles, so that we could receive the promise of the Spirit by faith”. (Galatians 3:13-14 NET)

Christ is not literally, going to redeem you again; He has already redeemed you from the curse of the law into an everlasting riches of grace. (See Roman 5:1-2) The riches of the new covenant through Christ (Abrahamic blessing) are yours by faith, in what has already been done on the tree. Your faith is the bucket into the crystal clear wells of grace, for where you ails. You are not under a curse of sickness and sin and neither are you under divine wrath. You are the redeemed one that Satan want to make you feel as bound. You are not broke nor poor; you are the blessed one. Satan ploy is to make you see yourself and life from a wrong mirror. Why all this hell? You are probably not utilizing the super abundant grace in Christ. Remember, Jesus did not negotiate confusion and anxiety in your mind, on the Cross. To be earnestly expecting evil in our daily lives renders the grace of God void in our lives. You already have peace in your spirit. The Bible says; “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7 KJV)

WHAT HAS GOD NOT GIVEN US? Friend, the complete work of Christ did not approve or endorse fear into our lives. We have not been given the power to fear. Whether it is the fear of tomorrow, or the fear of the unknown, the fear of success or the fear of today! He has given us power; you are not the weak label society has placed on you. Stop acting wimpy and being intimidated by life challenges and demonic illusions. The power that resurrected Jesus Christ, resides in your spirit. (See Roman 8:11) This is the reason you are more than a conqueror and greater, the resident power in you than whatever scares you out there. (See 1 John 4:4, Romans 8:37)

ARE YOU FEELING UNLOVED AND HARD LOVING OTHERS?  Love is abundantly flowing in you like the Niagara Falls. I tell you, you don’t need more love to love or to feel loved.Prayer All you need to know is to tapped into the unconditional and perfect love of God for you, which cast out all fears.(See 1 John 4:15-17) He first loved you by inviting you into a banquet, and His banner over you is loyal love. The perfect love that cast out fear is the revelation of His great love towards you. You cannot enjoy or give what you have not received. (Check my posts on the subject of God’s love for more details)

DO I HAVE SOUND MIND? To answer your question, let scripture speak for itself…For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7 KJV) Someone may say; “if God had given me sound mind, why am I walking in anxiety and panic attacks”? It took me many years in understanding this truth, before us today; “but of power, and love, and of sound mind”. The Christian life is an exchanged life of Christ Jesus. We live and move in Him. Just as He is so are we on this world. We have become complete in him, lacking in nothing. The mind of Christ therefore becomes the mind of the believer, in our position with Him as Sons and daughters. When one receives Christ, he automatically becomes a new creature, loaded with the fullness of God in our born again spirit. Inwardly we are loaded with the presence of God, but it only takes faith to draw from the wells of your salvation. We have been taught to work hard for sound mind and all the other virtues instead of resting in Christ Jesus for the manifestation of His life in us. Scripture says that we are complete and wholly whole in Him.

 Colossians 2:9-10 (AMP) For in Him the whole fullness of Deity (the Godhead) continues to dwell in bodily form [giving complete expression of the divine nature]. 10 And you [a]are in Him, made full and having come to fullness of life [in Christ you too are filled with the Godhead—Father, Son and Holy Spirit—and reach full spiritual stature]. And He is the Head of all rule and authority [of every angelic principality and power].

When we fix our minds on the completeness of our spirit, our soul begins to show the very nature of our being, and it automatically affects our external world. This truth applies to everything you are in Christ. Healing manifest in your body, wisdom activates in your mental faculties as you fix or set your mind on the truth of your identity in Christ. You can’t walk in sound mind, power and of love if you are more of yourself, even though you have the fullness of God in your spirit. Isaiah writes; “You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You.” (Isaiah 26:3 AMP)

ARE WE HOPING FOR GOOD? Whatever you are going through today, my friend you can change what you see or experience that you don’t like, by changing your thought patterns or belief systems. Stop trying to earn peace and wash your heart with constant peace, by being thankful for the finished work of Christ, which has made you victorious over the constant fears Photo Credit: Google imageand loneliness. Begin to expect good from the Lord instead of living in the vagueness of life. Jesus is your hope and to hope in Him for the manifestation of bubbling over peace and joy is to earnestly expect good from Him. Many are fantasizing the quality life, yet feeling empty and bankrupt. Christ in you is the hope of the glory.

Romans 15:12-13  (AMP) 12 And further Isaiah says, There shall be a [a]Sprout from the Root of Jesse, He Who rises to rule over the Gentiles; in Him shall the Gentiles hope.13 May the God of your hope so fill you with all joy and peace in believing [through the experience of your faith] that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound and be overflowing (bubbling over) with hope.

BY GRACE, WE ARE LOADED TO BE A BLESSING. When Jesus said signs will follow the disciples, He did not mean to say; “this is just for a moment or temporarily”. He was saying to the Church, all those who will place their trust in me by faith and learn to walk with me on the basis of grace, will experience an uncommon demonstration of power in their lives; continuously and consistently. We become conduits of life to the world. How can the house receive fresh water from its water taps when the pc pipes are clogged with dirt?

 Mark 16:17-18 ESV And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up serpents with their hands; and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.

Semeion the Greek word for signs; pronounce say-mi’-on denotes that by which a person or a thing is distinguished from others and is known of miracles and wonders, by which God authenticates the men sent by him, or by which men prove that the cause they are pleading is God’s. What is the proof of the gospel in your life? What are you showcasing to your friends and neighbors? Do they see the freedom and power that distinguish you from them or they are daily witnessing a dismantled, shattered mirror of the bathroom.

HOW DO YOU DISTINGUISH NIKE AND ADIDAS SNEAKERS? You probably wouldn’t have to do too much but to check the logo designs on the item at hand, to prove the difference. The child of God has the trade mark of God, to distinguish us from others. Healing and perfect health is the trade mark of God in our born again spirit and must manifest in our NIKEbodies. They are a byproduct of our salvation. I doesn’t matter what the findings of the Doctor says or the conclusions of the expert on Wall Street. Friend, you can surely believe in the words of Christ for your personal edification and miracle, to walk over scorpions, serpents and not to be buffeted with all forms of diseases and weakness in your body. You are completely marked and sealed in the Holy Spirit (See Eph 1:13-14) to protect you from demonic entrance; for Christ to manifest Himself through you, to impact others. Divine healing for your body and that of others is a sure sign of our eternal redemption! Don’t ignore your honorable place in Christ and embrace erroneous doctrines which approves weakness and honors poverty in all areas of life.

Many don’t see themselves as distinguished; they are wimpy, weak and sickly and complain all day like a falling branch without life and hope for tomorrow. They have been taught that there are only a handful of super believers who have been empowered to walk in power and authority over demons of sickness and ill-health. You are loaded with the life of Christ to be alive on this side of eternity not because of what you can do but on the basis of your position as a child of the son of the Most High God. Check your Christian resume:”You are more than a conqueror through Him who loves you” (Rom 8:37)

I DECREE AND DECLARE: When you stop whining, you start shinning. Arise and shine my good friend in the power of the Lord in all that you do and say. Say yes to an uncommon healthpeace-key-703x201, favor, strength, and recovery, and power manifestation! Say to your soul now, right here; “I am a sign and a wonder to my generation. I boldly confess that I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and His mark of distinction upon my life. I am uncommon and set apart to walk in victory over diseases. I have become a conduit of health and prosperity to my generation. By the laying of my hands, I cast out satanic influence of weakness, defeat, discouragement and sicknesses in any part of my being. I unleash abundant of prosperity and security from the wells of my salvation, to permeate every endeavor of my life on this side of life, in Jesus glorious name”. Amen!

I KNOW WHO I AM


The “need to become” is a life of striving, centered on self occupation. The Christian life, hooked on “I am” is anchored on true rest in the finished work of Christ. We are not striving to be righteous or holy and neither are we trying to be victorious or healed. Christ has become our righteousness, holiness, redemption, healing and victory through our union with Him. The Christian who is sick and weak in their bodies are not weak and sick people trying to become healed and strong. They are strong and already healed saints in Christ, that Satan is trying to make them feel as weak and sick. In your born again spirit you are already strong and healed through the stripes of Jesus Christ. You don’t strive for healing or God’s attention through self work; you receive the manifestation of power and healing in your body through faith. Stop trying to become and rest in Christ Jesus for what He has already accomplished for you.

 

Righteous-To-Reign

 God has united you with Christ Jesus. For our benefit God made him to be wisdom itself. Christ made us right with God; he made us pure and holy, and he freed us from sin. [1 Corinthians 1:30 NLT

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. [1 Peter 2:24 HCSB]

SIGNIFICANCE


“I think the surest way to affect the next generation for a greater awakening of significance, is the unveiling of the grace gospel to our children. A gospel which point them to their true identity and significance; on the basis of grace through faith in Christ Jesus, and not a daily audition for the rat race of society”

A HOLE IN THE GOSPEL| CHAPTER 2


Capture the central perspective of this post by reading Chapter one from here. In Chapter one, I share the vision the Lord revealed to me in 2011, in regards to His Church. He said there is an Emptiness in my Church!!

SENSATIONALISM AND EMOTIONALISM – Apostle Paul warns the Church at Colossae to be watchful of leaders who try to dazzle you with big words and intellectual double-talk. They want to drag you off into endless arguments that never amount to anything. They spread their ideas through the empty traditions of human beings and the empty superstitions of spirit beings. But that’s not the way of Christ. Everything of God gets expressed in him, so you can see and hear him clearly. You don’t need a telescope, a microscope, or a horoscope to realize the fullness of Christ, and the emptiness of the universe without him. When you come to him, that fullness comes together for you, too. His power extends over everything. This is the abundant life; the well where the thirsty and dissatisfied souls find rest and Photo Credit: Google imagecomfort.

THE WILDERNESS CHURCH -We see a similar picture in the wilderness Church…The congregation murmured against Moses and were willing to stone him, for lack of water for themselves and their animals. The Lord gave an instruction to Moses, to speak to the rock (Christ) before the eyes of congregation and water shall flow in abundance from the flinty rock.

Numbers 20:11-12 (NKJV) 11 Then Moses lifted his hand and struck the rock twice with his rod; and water came out abundantly, and the congregation and their animals drank. 12 Then the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, “Because you did not believe Me, to hallow Me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them.”

Moses, out of anger and disobedience stroked the rock twice with his rod and water gushed out. What was missing in this wilderness miracle was the neglect to exalt the Lord before the eyes His people that they can place their trust in Him as their sole satisfier and provider. Moses was not supposed to take the spot light…it was Christ, who was the type of the rock. Moses and the congregation miss the opportunity to reach the promise land. It is not always about the miracle; it’s always about God who is the miracle maker. Who is your focus? Yourself, your leader, your denomination or it is all about Christ?

WHAT TIME IS IT? It is time we drop our pick axe gospel of self works, legalism, commercialization, sexism, materialism, condemnation which has become the order of the day and share light on God’s grace gospel which is simple and yet has the power to build the total man from the inside out and grant us an inheritance with eternal value. Apostle Paul through the Holy Spirit spoke to the leaders of the Ephesus Church in his farewell address, to be committed to God and the timeless truth and principles of the word of His grace which has great benefits to keep them from false brethren and demonic concepts. The sound of the great Apostle still echoes through the corridors Photo Credit: synecticsworld.comof time to the 21st century church…

Acts 20:32New (NKJV) “So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.

A mind corrupted by wrong theology or belief system about God and who we are in Him leads to all kinds of behaviors and malfunctioning in life.  If the body of Christ is denied of her ability to behold the beauty and pleasant nature of Christ through the preaching of the Gospel which Paul says “Is able to build you up and not only that but to also give us an inheritance”  … then we deepen the vacuum of emptiness which plagues most Christians, and not experiencing this amazing grace independent of our self occupation and willpower to get access to the boundless riches in Christ. This is not a matter denominational or doctrinal over protection; it’s a matter of giving people the chance to see Jesus and throwing out all man centered religion and traditions out of the window.  Are you ready to be a part and parcel of this movement?

BUILDING NEW ALTARS I share the same passion with Malcom Smith 110% on what really matters now; preaching the gospel which is the power unto salvation and not works. He clearly sounds the trumpet from the roof top that we will all hear…“Preaching the gospel, we are announcing the news of the revelation of who Adinkra Symbol, Ghana: God's Presence and ProtectionGod is and how He feels about us. We stand on the street corners of the world shouting the news that God is not the way we thought He was – He loves us!!… This is the greatest news in the world… The love of God…is the magnetic north of truth by which we fix our position as we stumble lost in the wilderness of the world…To know that His love for us depends on Him and not on us is the beginning of the way out of the futile, meaningless lives and religious despair”

The pulpit has to be oiled again with the passion to see people transformed and not modified into robots without the ever abiding life of Christ flowing in us. Jesus said He came purposely to give us His own life in full measure. If this is heaven agenda, then the burden is not on us anymore but we must embrace this life by faith to impact us in all that we do on this side of eternity…

The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly “- John 10:10 (NKJV)

The pulpit needs repentance from dead works, and come back to a true relationship with the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Beating people with do’s and don’ts, when they’ve really not been empowered to know their true identity rather suppress them than doing them good. You don’t beat a servant and torture him to think and work like a king when his mind is beat down and contained in a prison of unworthiness, shame and insignificance. We tell people to become like Christ with child-laboursticks and hammers on their head, when they have no idea of who they are in Christ Jesus. Throwing fire and brimstone on people through condemnation and self occupation messages or sermons always compel sincere people to try hard on their own; because of their inability through self, they fake their identity, and yet we celebrate their outward modifications whiles they struggle under the cloak of hypocrisy on the inside. Teach me who I am and effortlessly, I will discover who I am and live naturally as God intended through the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit. Transformation is an inside out work of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer!!

You want transformation and fulfillment in Christ? Find a Christ centered church and resources that will draw you in to the riches of Christ in your daily life as a believer. May Christ be exalted before your eyes today in love and victory over complex issues of this world!!

YOU ARE NOT A SINNER BECAUSE YOU SIN


“Almost all unbelievers believe that, if they can change their behavior, they will be in good shape with God”

Jesus, Our Savior, passionately and tenderly, declared His heartbeat, in the gospel, written by John:

“I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me – I have other sheep that do not come from this sheepfold. I must bring them too, and they will listen to my voice, so that there will be one flock and one shepherd. (John 10:14, 16 NET

Jesus had a different attitude towards the unsaved, and the despicable in society. Jesus called the unsaved “other sheep”…I don’t have to delve too much into this. Wow! He is a shepherd to a detached sheep, wandering in the wilderness. This is so good to be true…it changes my perception towards the unsaved, and rekindles my passion to reach out beyond “his own” to tell the other sheep; “come home, God is not angry with you as you’ve been made to believe” “Come home, come home”Shepherd1

OTHER SHEEP…There are millions of our brothers and sisters, who are outside of the Church. They have never felt comfortable to come and be a part of the sheepfold, as God’s family. I can only describe them as; “being on the run, with a belly full of guilt and emptiness”. They think; first – they have to put their acts together, in their own power and ability, then they will come to Christ. They have not heard about the good news of their freedom from God’s anger, legalism and the gift of righteousness, on the basis of grace. They have only heard partial gospel of their sins, condemnation, and how bad they are; heading to perdition.

ONE IS NOT A SINNER BECAUSE HE SIN, ONE IS A SINNER BECAUSE…Please, tell them they are not “sinners” because of their sinful deeds. They are sinners because they have not believed in God’s one and only son….they have also refused to accept the undeserved payment of their innocence, and the goodness of God, which is the power unto salvation for all who will believe. Almost all unbelievers believe that, if they can change their behavior, they will be in good shape with God. In our depraved state, without Christ in us, through the power of the Holy Spirit, we can never be in good shape, on our own. This understanding will change the way we approach evangelism and sets captives free from the cave of their inability to surrender to God. The salvation deal is not a behavioral goal, but a transformation of the heart.

“This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him John 3:16-18 MSG

WHEN THE GOODNESS OF GOD IS SHARED…how God thinks about humanity through what He has done through Christ Jesus is shared with the world of sin… the Holy Spirit, immediately goes to work in the heart, to shine the light of the glory of Christ, for healing and transformation.powerpoint-background-8

Romans 2:4 NKJV…”Or Do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance? What brings repentance? It is in the goodness of God. Paul was not ashamed to talk about the goodness of God to the undeserved; he knew that, righteousness by faith could only be revealed to the unsaved through the gospel. He writes… Romans 1:16, 17 NKJV “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”

TELL THE WORLD…Please, tell them, God himself will perfect that which concerns them…the drugs, addiction, witchcraft, voodoo, hate, adultery, lesbianism, gambling, pornography and all derivatives of the fallen nature. Paul put it this way… “Because God is working in you to help you want to do and be able to do what pleases him” (Philippians 2:13 NCV) It is the Spirit which works in us both to will and to do of God’s good pleasure; this working of grace in our hearts, puts us in alignment with God, as one progressively walk with Him.original

To focus all our energies on one’s behavior change, as a yardstick to set up a relationship with God, is not the gospel. The gospel takes the burden from your shoulders as you place your faith in Christ, to appropriate God’s mercy and goodness. To try to save oneself through discipline and self denials will only do the outer work of change, not the transformation from the inside out. This form of righteousness is what Paul call it; “my own righteousness”.

Philippians 3:9 NKJV… and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness, which is from God by faith. The gospel is what God has wrought for humanity, through the finished work of Christ, on the cross of Calvary, independent of our efforts and performance; it hinges on faith alone” – 2 Corinthians 5:21(NIV)  God made him who had no sin to be sin[a] for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God

A PRAYER TO PRAY You can be free from the guilt of the death sentence, already paid on your behalf by Christ if and only you will believe in His person as God’s son,936750_473999902670979_334376063_n and His gracious work for your freedom. I entreat you to come home, my friend…Pray with me and come home to the open arms of your gracious Father;

“Dear God, I know I’m a sinner, I know I am not where I want to be, and I want forgiveness! I believe Jesus died on the cross, to pay the price for my sins. Come into my life Jesus to be my Lord and Savior! Thank you for the gift of life eternal and rest, flooding my soul” Amen!

  Share the joy of Christian fellowship with other believers & Share your Christ experience with the world. Shalom
