You send forth Your Spirit, they are created; and You renew the face of the earth. Psalm 104:30.
Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. 2 Corinthians 5:17.
“Grant that Your bond-servants may speak Your word with all confidence, while You extend Your hand to heal, and signs and wonders take place through the name of Your holy servant Jesus.” And when they had prayed, the place where they had gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak the word of God with boldness. Acts 4:29-31.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
I am a friend not a foe and I never let go. In Christ I solved the sin problem that separated us. I satisfied My just judgment against sin and rebellion and I reconciled all to Me through the Blood of His Cross. It is finished. It is all new.
In Christ, I make all things new. A new you. A new creation in Christ, born from above of Spirit and truth—My Spirit and My imperishable Word. Of Me. You are now God begotten with My Son when you receive Him as your Lord. You are Spirit breathed into new life.
Under the Old Covenant when you sinned, death came. When you touched the unclean, you became unclean. All depended on your performance and My presence was veiled.
But in Christ the veil is removed. When Christ came, grace came. In Him you see Me. The law was given to Moses, but grace came in Jesus Christ. You once were foolish, disobedient, deceived, enslaved to various lusts and pleasures, spending your life in malice and envy, hateful, hating one another, and without Me in the world. But when My kindness and faithful love for mankind appeared in Christ Jesus, I saved YOU, not on the basis of deeds which you have done in righteousness, but according to My mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit, whom I poured out upon you richly through Jesus Christ your Savior, so that being justified by My grace you would be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. Titus 3:3-7.
Therefore if you are in Christ, you are a new creation; the old things have passed away; behold, new things have come. 2 Corinthians 5:17. And not just you but all things are new. Now your sins and offenses I remember no more, they are atoned for and gone. My justice is satisfied and the ransom has been paid by your great High Priest Jesus. You are clean and when you touch the unclean, it becomes clean. The sanctification of yourself is so complete that it releases that anointing into the one touched. Like when the woman with the issue of blood touched Jesus, she did not make Him unclean, the anointing went into her by faith and made her clean. The same with the leper that Jesus cured. You are standing in a secure position, seated in heavenly realms in Christ, blessed with every spiritual blessing and redeemed by His blood. And nothing can take that from you. Even if you do not walk in it as you should, it is still there sealed in you. When you believed in the good news of the gospel of My Son, I sealed you in Him by the Holy Spirit as My own for Him to keep and raise up on the Last Day. But do not lose your reward. You need to walk out your anointing. Stop the negative, bitter, offended, unforgiving thoughts, these hinder our connection which I have gone to such lengths to secure. I will draw them up before your eyes if you continue them. Those whom I love I reprove and discipline; therefore be zealous and repent. You know of what I am speaking.
Jesus came to bring you life, ABUNDANT life. Yet you are unwilling to come to Him to have that life. You are unwilling to deny your flesh when you give in to selfish, judgmental behavior. Become committed like My servant Paul and take your every thought obedient to Christ. You will find joy. Evil thoughts bring evil results. No peace.
Jesus healed people and He told you to do the same. He did not say to go take care of the sick, He told you to go lay hands on them and heal them. He sent His disciples out to heal the sick, not to establish hospitals and keep them sick. Jesus never opened a hospital—He emptied them. Jesus never nursed and cared for a sick person—He healed them so they would not prey upon others. Jesus never led a blind person around—He gave them sight so they could walk in the way themselves. He told you to visit the sick, but He told you to do so to lay hands on them so they would recover and to anoint them and pray the prayer of faith over them to raise them up. He did not tolerate the works of Satan. And neither should you.
And He told YOU who believe in His Name that you would do the works He did and greater.
In Jesus, I make people new and empower them to do the work of the Kingdom. You may say you cannot do the works that Jesus did but Jesus did them as a man, not as God, and Peter and Paul did the same works and greater than Jesus but they were men just as you are. Jesus was very different in that He is entirely God and entirely man but as man on earth He limited Himself to acting only as a man empowered by the Holy Spirit. But He was completely yielded to the Spirit. He had no bitterness, unforgiveness, or resentment in Him. He never permitted such thoughts. He was tempted in every way you are but He never sinned. And in Him, My grace is sufficient for you to do the same. It is time you grew up to your full stature in Him and stopped your fleshy, childish behavior.
Peter and John and Paul did not open clinics, they healed the sick, even Peter’s shadow and cloths touched to Paul healed the sick and cast out demons. That is the power of the anointing that is in and on you who believe. Paul did not medicate what looked like mental illness, he cast it out in the Name of My Son for he was aware of the demons behind it.
You often give place to Satan that you should not. You are not fighting flesh and blood but the prince of the air. This is a spiritual battle and when you keep it in that arena you win. You will not win over him in the flesh. Screaming in anger at another does nothing as far as winning the battle goes. That is flesh.
You should not be accepting the devil’s tactics, you should be aware of them and take them down. I have given you My armor, use it. But you must understand it to use it. Look at it with new eyes. Do not see it as clothing but as the direction of what you must have in you to be equipped to win over the schemes of the devil and for every good work.
Put on Christ. Put on the full armor of Light so you will be able to stand firm against the schemes and tactics of the devil—it is to be aware and to take a firm stand and not permit his antics. Do not give him even a quarter of an inch.
You first must realize you are not fighting with people, such as your spouse, your sibling, your co-worker, your boss, your children, or the government. You are wrestling with a spirit that these people are yielding their lives to who has blinded their minds and taken them captive to do his will. You must be setting them free. If you fight them by arguing, accusations, and revenge, take care, you will tear and devour one another and the devil will laugh, because now he hooked you in too.
Even fasting and bombarding Me with novenas and begging prayers for Me to change the other person or get rid of the devil for you, if you are doing it in fears and tears, is flesh. That is not working with Me to take down strongholds. That is not fighting the good fight of faith. I made the heavens and the earth and nothing is too wonderful for Me. If I am with you, who can be against you? Why are you so scared of mortal man or any illness or disease? It takes boldness, declaration of My Word, speaking to the forces of darkness by command, resisting his attacks—no anxiety but confident requests for healing and vindication with praise and thanksgiving. You must go around My Altar with the voice of thanksgiving if you want results.
Therefore take up My full armor that you will be able to resist the devil on that evil day and he will flee from you. My armor is the authority of the believer.
So stand firm and don’t give in—that means you already have the victory. You are not fighting to get victory, you are maintaining your position of victory already won by Christ for you no matter what.
You will note the armor is an armor of prayer. That is how you fight in the spirit. First you have to be on the foundation of My Word—gird your loins with the girdle of truth. Your loins are the parts of reproduction and what you produce must be based on My Word as you abide in My Word as a branch in the vine. Joshua 1:8. Next you need to be established in righteousness to be far from oppression and fear. You have to know that I have forgiven you in Christ, cleansed you, and given you My own righteousness—there is nothing dividing us any longer, I am yours and you are Mine. And that is the breastplate of righteousness that guards your heart and your mind in Christ Jesus. Knowing I have made you righteous, blameless and beyond reproach in My sight. You can come to Me and get the help you need. And then you need to walk in peace and you do that by walking in the light of the Gospel of Peace, which is being an ambassador of reconciliation. Do not let the tumult the devil is throwing up around you enter you. Stay with Me in the secret place, the strong tower of My Name. Great peace have those whose minds are stayed (set) on Me, that is, on My Word of power. And that leads to the next piece of armor—the shield of faith which extinguishes the flaming arrows of the evil one. Faith in My love for you, faith in My promises that they will come to pass if you stick with them and don’t draw back, for faith is the victory that overcomes the world and faith comes by hearing and hearing My Word till it fills your heart and gets in your mouth. And then you sound like Me. Like Jesus. Like the Lion of the Tribe of Judah.
And this leads to the Helmet of Salvation—every thought captive for Christ, shielded from the lies of the enemy about who you are and what you have in Christ. The devil is the accuser of the brethren night and day, you must put on your helmet and your earphones tuned to My Word to drown him out. And last, you have the Sword of the Spirit, which is My Word out of your mouth.
And next you read that you do it all in prayer at all time in the Spirit and that you stay alert in prayer to the tactics of the devil against your fellow believers to take down the devil’s plans to harm them. And what is the main prayer asked of you? To proclaim and speak the Word, the Gospel, boldly to all as My ambassadors. That I will give you the Words and the wisdom and the boldness to do it. Ephesians 6:18-20. And if you recall when I give you a look into the prayers of the early community of believers, what did they pray for in the Spirit? “Grant that Your bond-servants may speak Your word with all confidence, while You extend Your hand to heal, and signs and wonders take place through the name of Your holy servant Jesus.” And when they had prayed, the place where they had gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak My Word with boldness. Acts 4:29-31. Does that sound like your prayer?
I love you. I am your friend, not a foe and I never let go. Hang on and step up to live the abundant life that I sent My Son to give you. Guard your mind and your heart. Let Me help you to do this.
