You nullify the Word of God in favor of your tradition that you have handed down; and you do many things such as that. Mark 7:13.
To know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:19.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
I have made you partakers of My divine nature in Christ, but how do you get full of that divine life in your mortal body? By knowing the love of Christ. “To know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:19. “But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:37-39.
But many who are very dedicated to Me do not know My love at all. They are not fighting the good fight of faith. They are not enjoying the freedom of the children of God. They are in a form of bondage. What am I talking about? Jesus told some very religious people the same, “You nullify the Word of God in favor of your traditions that you have handed on.” Mark 7:13.
Many who fail to understand Scripture and My power, find it much more comfortable, though unpleasant, to fall back on traditional teachings that the more you suffer sickness, pain, and poverty the more you are pleasing Me. But this is giving in to the enemy and not standing up to fight the good fight of faith. “Beloved, I desire that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers. For I was very glad when brethren came and testified to your truth, that is, how you are walking in truth. I have no greater joy than this, to hear of my children walking in the truth.” 3 John 1:2-4. My Word is truth, so the first place you should look to see what pleases Me is My Word and NOT the default teachings of men. “Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.” James 1:16-17. Do not call what is evil good or what is good evil. I give only good, only blessing and never cursing. I sent Jesus to redeem you from the curse, which is eternal death, sickness, and poverty. I know the plans I havde for you, plans for you for shalom (that you prosper and be in good health in all areas of your life) and not evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11. I send My Word to heal you and deliver you from all your destructions (pits). Psalm 107:20. Why then would you say I am pleased when you bear sickness and destruction of your life? “Therefore, putting aside all filthiness and all that remains of wickedness, in humility receive the word implanted, which is able to save your souls.” James 1:21.
I AM the LORD your healer. I am the same yesterday, today, and forever. And yet the traditions of religious men that sickness is good and from Me because it makes you stop and think, it makes you humble, it makes you show your love for Me by bearing it, nullify My Word in the lives of those who look to them for religious instruction, for then those who hear embrace sickness as from Me and will not rebuke it and do as I told you to lay your hands on the sick in My Name so they will recover. I sent out My apostles to preach and to heal the sick, cleanse lepers, cast out demons and raise the dead. And as I sent them, I send you.
I make it quite clear in My Word that I do not cleanse you with sickness and poverty, with the curse, I tell you who are members of His body, the church, by your faith in Him, what I cleanse you with: “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the Word, that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless.” Ephesians 5:25-27. And remember what Jesus told His disciples and so He tells you, “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He cleans it so that it may bear more fruit. You are already clean because of the Word which I have spoken to you.” John 15:1-3.
I have told you My Will in My Word and you are to fight the good fight of faith for it. How? With your words and they come from the abundance of your heart. The spirit of faith is to believe in your heart and speak with your mouth. But you will only get the results of My Words, My magnificent promises, if you make My Words your own. My Words in your mouth, that is the Sword of the Spirit. I have put My Words in your mouth and covered you with the shadow of My hand to plant the Kingdom of Heaven on the earth and establish the earth therein. I have given you the keys to Kingdom, and the key is your voice, for the gates of Heaven are voice activated. When you say “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that I raised Him from the dead, the gate of Heaven opens to you, and Jesus is the door. And He is the High Priest of your confession (homologia), so when you speak in agreement with Him, He brings your words to Me and I watch over My Words to perform them.
You come into the church by the Blood of Jesus and once in the church you are sanctified by My Word. Jesus is My gift to the world for their salvation, the Holy Spirit is My gift to the church for sanctification. The Spirit guides you to all truth, and My Word is truth and is Spirit breathed.
You have to be diligent in keeping, doing, hearing, speaking, and reading My Word. Do not give in to the doctrines of men that rob you of your prize of the high calling in Christ. The path of destruction is wide, do not give in to the curse saying it is from Me because it is the comfortable, easy way out that requires no fight of faith and no embarrassment if the person you pray for is not healed. The traditions of men have no power. Only My Word has power to save.
“Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil. So then do not be foolish but understand what the will of the Lord is.” Ephesians 5:15-16. How can you always know My Will? My Word is My Will and My Will is My Word, and I have given you a whole book of them, the Bible. And you will find an answer to every question, situation, or need that you have in that book. If you are wise, you will agree with Me. I tell you that I protect you, guide you, heal you, supply all your needs, uphold you with My strong right hand, that I never leave you or forsake you, I heal you, I forgive your sins and remember them no more, and I fill your days with good things and yet many people who are believers speak the opposite about themselves, thus nullifying My Word in their lives and keeping Me from performing My Will in their lives.
Take the Words I give you to heart. Do not listen to others’ words that are contrary to Mine. Get so familiar with My Word that you hear My voice in that Word and give no heed to the voice of the stranger. And I give some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the believers for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; until you all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of My Son, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ. As a result, you are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming; but speaking the truth in love, you are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ, from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love. Ephesians 4:11-17.
Above all I want you to know My love, enjoy that love, and live that love. Filled with love you are filled with Me.
I love you. Do not let the words of men deprive you of My good promises. The negative report of ten of the twelve spies who went to scout out the Promised Land kept all of Israel out of the blessing of abundance I had given them for forty years. The ones who chose to believe those words over Mine lost it forever though it was My Will they have it. Always look to My Word to know the final word on any subject.
