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.
Wretched man that I am! Who will set me free from the body of this death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! Romans 7:24-25.
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him. Romans 5:8-9.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:
You must understand the enormity of what sin does to appreciate the grace in which you now stand in newness of life. Sin is ugly. It steals, kills, and destroys your life and that of your descendants. One act of sin can change the entire course of your life. Ask anyone who has committed adultery, murder, abortion, or is living an addicted or perverted lifestyle if this has blessed them and the people around them. No, never, it has destroyed their future and their hope and brought them into hell on earth.
Through sin, Adam corrupted the seed, and brought sickness, deformity and death to his descendants (which is everyone), and made you all children of the devil, for once Adam left My jurisdiction and went under that of the devil, he had chosen his master and father. And once you are adopted into another line, all your descendants are transferred to that line as well. You needed a savior but all of Adam’s corrupted seed were unable to pay the ransom of an eternal life for the life you lost. The devil was murderer and a liar from the beginning, but Adam could easily have taken dominion over the devil. But instead he chose to dishonor Me, the one who had given him everything good.
And I could have left you there. For I grieved over that I had created you and you had not been grateful but sought to put Me out of your lives and do evil to one another in seeking to set yourself above all. SIN IS EXTREMELY SERIOUS. It is dishonoring the one who has prepared a Kingdom for you and who gave you life and breath and being. I gave you My Word, that is, I gave you Myself, and you threw that aside and disobeyed My Word and still do right before My face. And yet people who sin do not see it that way. They think they are exempted from My laws.
But the worst of all was that in pulling out of Me and becoming alive to sin under the devil, Adam’s end could only be the same place to where his master would go—the pit of sulfur and brimstone where the worm dies not and the fire is never extinguished, that place of torment where there is no purpose, nothing to look forward to, no light, no hope, no love, no joy, no laughter, and no way out. But I did not prepare this for you and My desire is to save you from that place and translate you to the splendor, majesty, and beauty of My Kingdom forever.
And I did this by the blood of My Son. You are free of all that would hold you captive from the beautiful life of dominion I prepared for you in advance that you might live in it. In Him, I make you a new creation. It is time you began to live that that. And that is today’s life lesson in what to do when Satan attacks: “Live as a New Creation.”
“All of us like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; but the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him.” Isaiah 53:6.
When you were born again in Christ Jesus, you were born free of all the sin that has held man back from living with power. Now it is time to know who you are and take back your territory, for if you lay down your authority as Adam did, the devil will take it up though it does not belong to him. Do not let him have it a second time, for now he has been usurped off the throne he usurped from Adam by Christ.
If you really know what I have done for you and how beautiful, how welcome, how forgiven, how clean, how blameless and how faultless I have made you before Me in Christ, you would never let Satan pull you out of that to sin again. You would laugh at his attempts to take what you are so grateful to have. You are not his to go to that pit of despair. You are Mine to have all the virtues of Christ adorning you before Me.
“For he who lacks these qualities is blind or short-sighted, having forgotten his purification from his former sins. Therefore, brethren, be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you.” 2 Peter 1:9-10.
I have called you out of darkness into My own marvelous light and, by the blood of My Son released you from your sins and made you a kingdom and priests unto Me, filled with My Spirit and blessed by My love. Everyone should see how radiant you are, like Moses when he came from prayer before Me and his face would shine with My glory. Walk in the light of My love that is shining into your hearts.
It is time you shook yourself from the dust and put on the garments of Salvation and the robe of righteousness I have given you in Christ. Let My light shine from you in a life of sinless beauty, which I have given you to walk in. Do nothing that would make you naked again as Adam and Eve did. Let no one rob you of your crown of glory.
If you are in Christ, even though man has despised Me, dishonored Me, sinned against Me, disobeyed My Word and gone after other “gods,” philosophies, pushed Me aside in daring to say I do not exist—questioning My goodness and saying he knows better what freedom and justice are, yet not doing what I tell you to do to have My goodness. But in Christ I take all that away from you and put it on Him so that you may become righteous and blameless before Me with My own righteousness and purity, freely given you in Christ Jesus your Lord.
For you were dead in your trespasses and sins, in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is even now working in the sons of disobedience. Among them you too all formerly lived in the lusts of your flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest. Ephesians 2:1-3.
Please understand this, sin has consequences and it requires punishment for justice to be done. You had all become children of wrath, without hope and without Me in the world. So what was I to do so that I could punish sin but save you? And My answer was Jesus. I would rend the heavens and come down to save you. I Myself had to do it, not another. My Word, My Son, coming forth from the very depths of the Godhead, expressing fully who I am came forth to save you by My grace which I lavished on you in Him. And He saves you from the wrath to come. Be grateful and live a lifestyle of thanksgiving for what I have given you in Him and you will not be tempted by sin. You will rebuke it telling it just who I have made you in Christ.
And even before He manifested in the flesh in the fullness of the time, I sent My Word to heal you and deliver you from destruction. And Moses told the Israelites that My Words were not idle words like the devil’s words and man’s words in all his pomp and educated pride, but they are your very life. My Word is life to you who find it, and health to all your flesh. Choose life that and your descendants may live days of Heaven upon the earth. DO NOT LET MY WORD OUT OF YOUR SIGHT. Do not let the devil steal it for that is the first thing he will go after. And if you do not understand the importance of clinging to My Word and never giving in to the sin that so easily ensnares you, you will NOT let him take it. And if you use it as your sword, he cannot take it, he must flee from you. And flee does not mean hang around, it means to exit from your presence as fast as he can.
PLEASE understand that I have saved you by My Word, by His blood, by His life, and that you are not going to that pit of hell because of My loyalty and love for you if you just grab hold of My Word and keep Him as Lord in your heart. If you know what you have in Me, you will never let go. And I will never let go of you. I honor those who honor Me. Sin dishonors Me. And you may not think you sin, but if you worry and fear you are sinning, for I tell you not to and explain why—because I care for you, I supply for you, I heal you, I deliver you and I help you. And there are many more promises you have in My Names that I have given to you in Christ that make you partakers of My divine nature. Use your possessions. I have sealed you in Christ by My Holy Spirit and all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are in Him, so you have easy access to them. Call them in and move out the evil.
Again, understand you were children of wrath and I could have left you there as I did Satan, but I refused to do so.
“But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved) and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.” Ephesians 2:4-10.
Let Me go back to the beginning. I made the first man and woman in My image and according to My likeness. I clothed them in glory and they walked in the perfection of immortality. And I shared My heart with them each day and gave them treasures of wisdom and knowledge. I made a beautiful garden of abundance for them and gave them the joy of cultivating it by their words. There was no sweat.
“When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have set in place; what is man that You take thought of him, and the son of man that You care for him? Yet You have made him a little lower than God, and You crown him with glory and majesty! You make him to rule over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet, all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field, and The birds of the heavens and the fish of the sea, whatever passes through the paths of the seas.” Psalm 8:3-8.
You were beautiful, full of My life which I blew into your nostrils on the day you were created and there was no sin in you. We had open fellowship. You practiced your dominion authority with Me. And I trained you to take up that authority and reign in life with Me. I gave you a life of no worries, no stress, perfect peace and abundance provided by love.
I simply gave one law for them in the Garden, which basically was that they were not to take over the decision of what is good and what is evil, that is ultimately Mine. I am your source and I made you, I know how you function the best to reign in life. But Adam committed treason.
He turned away from Me seeking himself as his source, he and Eve sought to have a knowledge above Mine. And Eve was convinced by the devil that I was withholding this knowledge from her that would make her like Me, which she already was. But for one lie from a creature, Adam and Eve threw My Words aside and launched out in a way totally contrary to all I had shown them. They broke our covenant and treated My Words as cheap.
If you seek only your own glory, only your own flesh, you will bring yourself to ruin. You see this in Adam and Eve, in Cain, in Samson, in Saul, in Judas Iscariot, in Herod, and indeed for each person who lets sin rule his life even now.
I have given you life and called you to be with Me forever. I promised you eternal life before the world began. And then I gave you one test to show your loyalty. The decision of what is good and what is evil ultimately belongs to Me, and My judgments are right. And just from reading My laws you see that they are good and pure. But many today decide that things I say are evil are good, and things I say are good are evil.
“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight!” Isaiah 5:20-21. This is a snare and a trap of the devil.
Sin ruined the life of Adam and Eve and shut them out of the Garden they loved and put them into a waste place, for the earth rebelled against them for putting creation into the corruption of sin and death.
But it was the enormity of what they had done to Me that few consider, it is such a sad story that is repeated in so many lives that have given in to Satan and regretted it for the rest of their lives, for it not only ruins their life but that of their descendants, as it did with Adam and later with Solomon.
I had given Adam and Eve life, brought them into existence. I had destined them to be with Me for eternity, I had given them beauty and glory beyond all you can ask or imagine, and they threw it all aside as cheap and of no account in seeking power and control. And the devil had done the same with the amazing beauty and skill I had put in him as My anointed cherub who walked in Eden.
But in seeking authority by disobeying My Word, what Adam and Eve failed to understand, (and My people perish for lack of knowledge, though the knowledge is there, but Satan will blind your minds to it if you let him), was that under My authority which I delegated to them they already had dominion over all the works of My hands. But they turned against and dishonored the Word of the One who had created them, given them existence, provided for all they needed with no toil on their part, and walked with them as friends and partners. You do not begin to know the enormity of the offense they committed against Me. And all sin is like that.
It was such a blow at Me that I could have just walked away and left you with the evil one you had chosen. But I did not and you must never go back there.
You are alive because I willed it to be so. You have a beautiful world because I made it for you. You have provision because I give it to you. Everything good you have is from Me. Isn’t it time you awakened to righteousness and cast out the devil and all his demons from every area of your life? Isn’t it time you put on the new man and walked in accordance with who I have made you to be in Christ?
But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts. Romans 13:14. Just rebuke it and ignore it. What you don’t feed and pay attention to will die.
I love you. I have made you a new creation in Christ, therefore walk as such, KNOW YOU ARE NO LONGER A CHILD OF WRATH, it has PLEASED Me to give you My Kingdom. Oh, what a glorious life is awaiting you even now! Walk in wisdom, do not lose what I have prepared for you. The devil, who once was such a glorious angel, has lost all that he had by sin, do not let him pull you into the path of damnation that is his. He has already been judged and condemned and soon he will be locked up forever, do not let him take you with him. I have given you free will. Exercise it wisely for the time is short.
“For this reason also, since the day we heard of it, we have not ceased to pray for you and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and patience; joyously giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light. For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” Colossians 1:9-14.
