I have been with you wherever you have gone and have cut off all your enemies from before you; and I will make you a great name, like the names of the great men who are on the earth. 2 Samuel 7:9.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
The Blood was sufficient. In fact it was huperperisseuó. That is a Greek word that I use in Romans 5:20. It is hard to exactly match in English. It means to go beyond abundantly exceeding. In other words, ultra-super abounding beyond measure. Perisseuo means abundantly exceeding and when you add “hyper” on top of that it is way beyond. Where sin abounds, grace super abounds (huperperisseuó). Romans 5:20. That is what the Blood of My Son did for you.
I am saying this because many of you, more than you can fathom, who are believers have repented of sins but you still are tormented over them and keep begging Me to forgive you and give you another chance, to go back and make it right somehow. It is stopping you from forgetting what lies behind and going forward to your high calling in Christ. You think you lost your destiny and I will not give it back to you, but I do give second chances and more than that, just look at Jonah and Moses and Paul. My gifts and My call are irrevocable. And I will show you why.
First though, stop behaving like those who have no hope. You have no reason to do so. Joshua was down on the ground throwing dust on his head from morning to evening after a defeat, and what did I tell him? “Rise up! Why is it that you have fallen on your face?” I say the same thing to you. And let Me show you why and you will be set free with joy unspeakable that no man or demon in hell can take away from you! Your life is about to turn into joy from right now. My apostle Paul understood this and applied it to his conscience and do you know what he said? “I am filled with comfort; I am overflowing with joy in all our affliction.” 2 Corinthians 7:4. And do you know the word he uses? You guessed it, huperperisseuó.
Stop your moaning, stand up, and start growing. I have been with you wherever you have gone and cut off all your enemies from before you, and I will make you a great name (Acts 4:13, Ephesians 3:14), like the names of the great men who are in the earth. Do you remember what I said to the lame man they put down through the roof to get My Son’s attention? “Young man, your sins are forgiven you! Get up and walk.”
Agree with Jesus and get up. I have strengthened you by My strong right hand. Entrust yourself to a faithful Creator. I am faithful and I will bring you before Me holy, blameless, pure and beyond reproach. Entrust yourself into My hands to become a new creation and you do this when I seal you in Christ by your faith in Him. Let Me lead you, shape you, and complete the good work I have begun in you.
Now listen carefully: when you do not forgive yourself you are saying to Me that the Blood of Jesus that He shed for the forgiveness of your sins is not sufficient in your standard of judgment to take away your sin. You are setting the standard by which I must look at your sin. For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you. Matthew 7:2. But to Me, His Blood was beyond sufficient, it was huperperisseuó.
Start seeing it that way. See yourself forgiven, see yourself beloved, see yourself as in good standing with Me.
Let it go, I have. His Blood was sufficient. Tell yourself that every time the devil tries to torment you with what you did or did not do. Stop acting like I am a hard task master. I am a good, kind, and loving Father who loves to prosper you and keep you in good health. In Christ, I have given you every spiritual blessing in Heaven. I have been with you wherever you went, even when you went on a detour and got yourself into the valley of the shadow of death, but I can bring you out, if you will just let what is behind go. The Blood was sufficient. You need pay no more.
There are now three things I ask you to do. Faith, hope, and love, these three. Faith makes you rejoice always. Hope makes you pray without ceasing, and love makes you give constant thanks. The one who is forgiven much, loves much. And is overflowing with gratitude for the freedom from guilt, shame, blame. It is gone. All is shalom between Us. This is My will for you in Christ Jesus. Do not grieve the Holy Spirit.
You can go forward free and clear with Me. Remember? It is not your fault. It was your fault, but when you received Jesus as Lord, He took it from you and it became His fault and He took care of it with Me for you. I punished Him in your place by death. And when He died to your sins, so did you, and when I raised Him up free from sin, all paid, I raise you with Him and seated you with Him and in Him at My right hand. It is all okay. It is gone. The Blood was sufficient. Never let it raise its head again. The past is gone. Now all is before you. I am the lifter of your head. Stop hanging it in shame.
You have been paid in full and so have I. Leave yourself alone. My Son has paid you. You do not owe yourself or Me any debt. All is good.
Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing (perisseuó) in thanksgiving. See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ. 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; and in Him you were also circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, in the removal of the body of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ; having been buried with Him in baptism, in which you were also raised up with Him through faith in My working when I raised Him from the dead. When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, I made you alive together with Him, having forgiven you all your transgressions, having canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against you, which was hostile to you; and I have taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. When I had disarmed the rulers and authorities, I made a public display of them, having triumphed over them through Jesus. Colossians 2:6-15.
I have endorsed you, not remorsed you. I have reached down and grasped with My strong right hand to make you strong, to make you holy, to bring you up out of your grave, out of your pit, like My Son said to Lazarus as he lay bound up in a dark tomb, “Lazarus, come forth!” I say the same to you. Come forth and walk with Me in confidence. You are beloved, forgiven, and I have nothing against you for anything you have ever done. I give you the victory through Christ Jesus. 1 Corinthians 15:57.
I love you. My Son died for you. He paid Me more than I required to make you whole, complete, and perfect. I am bigger than your sin. Magnify that. And I, the God of peace, will Myself sanctify you entirely; and preserve your spirit and soul and body complete, without blame at the coming of your Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful am I who calls you, and I also will bring it to pass. Put yourself in the hands of a faithful Creator. Do not run from Me for what you have done, run with Me, lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles you, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing your eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith.
