Say to Archippus, “Take heed to the ministry which you have received in the Lord, that you may continually fulfill it.” Colossians 4:17.
Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass. 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
My servant Paul once wrote about himself, “Wretched man that I am! Who will set me free from the body of this death?” Romans 7:24. There are many of you that feel that way right now. You may have illness, pain, regrets, addictions, anger, bitterness, depression and have messed a lot of things up though you had good intentions and feel there is no way you can lift yourself out. Do you remember something Jesus told you? “You can do nothing without Me.” But the good news is, you don’t have to do it without Him. I gave Him to you to make you complete. You can be healed, pain free, free from addictions, free from anger, bitterness and depression, and be lifted out of the miry swamp you have plummeted into to the heights with a new song in your mouth. And that was Paul’s answer by My Holy Spirit to his own question: “Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord!” Romans 7:25.
And what was the solution? The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus. It has set you free from the law of sin and death. Romans 8:2. There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, only regeneration as a new creation in Christ. Titus 3:5; 2 Corinthians 5:17. That is if you continue in the faith firmly established and steadfast and not moved away from the hope of the gospel that you have heard. Colossians 2:23.
You have to renew your mind.
If you keep your mind set on the flesh, that is, you live only by what you discern with your five senses and are directed by your emotions, the result is death. But if your mind is set on the Spirit, and My Words are Spirit and life, the result is life and peace. Romans 8:6. You have to become Word focused instead of flesh focused.
The works of the flesh are evident all around you, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, envying, drunkenness, carousing, slothfulness, carelessness, and things like these, those who practice such things will not inherit My kingdom. Galatians 5:19-21.
But if you walk by the Spirit, you will not carry out the desire of the flesh. For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please. The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. Now those, such as you, who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Just believe that and walk it out.
And walking in the Spirit means walking in love, not challenging and envying one another. Galatians 5:25-26.
I want you to understand something that is very important to your life and wellbeing. A toxic mind (a bitter root) will ruin your body and your life. Do not let this happen to you and become so entrenched in your way of being that you spend years out of My Will.
This may surprise many people, but My Word contains an answer for every problem that you have. If you have a problem, look for what you need to do to turn it around in My Word.
If you are having a problem with your body, with your bones and joints, then look for the Scriptures that address those concerns and give you an answer. If you are in illness or pain, do the same. The same for financial problems. The same for emotional and relationship problems.
But you will find something that recurs over and over. You have to get rid of anger, bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander—put them away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as I in Christ also have forgiven you.
A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones. Proverbs 14:30. When you clothe yourself with cursing as with your garment, and it will enter into your body like water and like oil into your bones. Psalm 109:18.
I make all things new. Do you not perceive it? Let Me raise you up out of your ashes of despair and the ruins of your life and seat you with the princes of My people and the Prince of Peace Himself in Heaven, in the Holy of Holies, and there you will find mercy, grace, and help just when you need it. Now faith is.
If you need wisdom, ask Me for it without doubting that I will give it to you. Stop crying and let Me wipe every tear from your eyes. There is still hope. I give you a future and a hope. Do not give up on yourself. I have not. I will complete the good work I have begun in you. Take heed to the ministry which you have received in the Lord, that you may continually fulfill it. Colossians 4:17. I have called you and I am faithful, and I also will bring it to pass. 1 Thessalonians 5:24. Remember, Jesus is the vine and you are branches. Walk faithful to Me so I can act in your life to clean up all the mess that you have made. The Blood of Jesus washes all away that is wrong. Wash your robes and make them white in the Blood of the Lamb. I have given you the solution to every problem, His Name is Jesus. And He is yours forever. He will never leave you or forsake you. He is with you always. Not just when you do everything right, but even when you do everything wrong. He came to save sinners. And He is the same yesterday, today and forever.
I have taken your life, such as it is, and in Christ I have qualified you for the inheritance of the saints in light. This is not a day to weep, it is a day to rejoice, for My joy is your strength. You may have done everything wrong and failed every test, but if you come to Me through My Beloved Son Jesus you become just like Him in My eyes and you receive His reward. Such is the inheritance of you who receive Him as Lord. I so love you that I wanted everything to be put right in your life, so I put all your sins, ills, and pains on Jesus and gave you My righteousness in Him. And there is no higher way of being right. Since Adam no one has completely glorified Me in their lives except ONE man, and I gave Him to you to be your identity before Me, and His Name is Salvation (Yeshuah, Jesus) and that is what I give you in Him. Salvation in every situation.
Because you have loved Me, therefore I will deliver you; I will set him securely on high, because you know My name. You will call upon Me, and I will answer you; I will be with you in trouble; I will rescue you and honor you. With long life I will satisfy you and show you My salvation (Yeshuah). Psalm 91:14-16. Do you believe that? Then smile.
I love you. Be careful how you walk so that you will live with no regrets. Lean on Me and not on your own understanding. In all your ways be mindful of Me and be sure you are following the Good Shepherd in right paths. Cast all your cares on Me and let Me care for you. Rejoice, pray and give thanks. Do violence to your feelings by refusing to give in to fear, anxiety, stress, shame, guilt, and blame. That is why Adam hid from Me instead of letting Me fix the mess he had made. And messes, if not brought out to Me in the light, only get messier. If you don’t like where you are, let Me help you turn that desolate place into a Garden of Eden.
