Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. Ephesians 1:3-4.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:
You are blessed. The first words I spoke to man when I created him, male and female I created them, I blessed them and gave them dominion over the earth and the work of My hands.
And when Noah came out of the ark I renewed My blessing over him and his family. Genesis 9:1.
And when I called Abraham I blessed him and told him that I blessed him to be a blessing and that his life would bless all the families of the earth. And I blessed Isaac, Jacob, and their descendants. And now in Christ you are a descendant of Abraham, redeemed from the curse by the Blood of Christ, and a new creation blessed with the blessing of Abraham and the promise of the Spirit by faith. All the blessings from creation that I had for man, made in My image and according to My likeness, are now on you. And that makes all My magnificent promises in My Covenant Names, which are all blessings, showers of blessings filling your lives with good things from Me, all “yes” to you always because of who I have made you to be in Christ.
It is like the reopening of the wells of Abraham that the Philistines had plugged up and made dry. For Isaac I reopened them and the seed he planted produced a hundredfold the same year, even in drought and famine in the land. He had the wells. In joy you will draw water from the springs of Salvation (Yeshuah) for I am your strength and song.
“Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; for the LORD God is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation.” Therefore you will joyously draw water from the springs of salvation. Isaiah 12:2.
May you know the hope of My calling for you are all called and beloved. I have blessed you to be a blessing. Blessings overflow until they again fill all your waste places with the garden of Eden.
Who is like you, a people saved by the LORD , who is the shield of your help and the sword of your majesty! So your enemies will cringe before you, and you will tread upon their high places. Deuteronomy 33:29.
The lie that the devil will tell you, and it has worked since he first fell from Heaven, is that you are not blessed but cursed and that you have to earn My blessings. And each time you do not behave perfectly in thought, word, and deed, he not only tells you that you lost your blessing but he gives you thoughts that I will not only withdraw your blessings but I will punish you with evil things. And that is why Adam and Eve hid from Me and would not repent.
But like all he accuses you with and defines you with, this is a lie from the pit of hell.
This lie worked with Job who blamed Me for everything bad that happened to him. But I make it clear in My Word that all that happened to him was not from Me but from the devil and that Job had opened his own door to him by fear over the behavior of his children but he did not reprove his children. But he had a foreboding that evil would fall on them and it did, but not by My hand. Like Eli with Hophni and Phinehas.
What you permit, I have to permit in your life. What you bind, I likewise will bind in your life. Release your faith for blessings and bind the spirits of infirmity, disease, fear, depression and poverty.
When you open your door to the devil, he has a place in you, and if you give in to his lies and ways, he becomes your master and he has jurisdiction over you. And he will take advantage of you.
The more you entertain his lies, the more he can blind your mind to the blessing and set your sights only on the curse—a barren land of waste places. He does not want you to return to Me and tap into the wells of water that are around you because he knows what that will grow—the garden of abundance and delight.
Indeed, the LORD will comfort Zion; He will comfort all her waste places. And her wilderness He will make like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the LORD. Joy and gladness will be found in her, thanksgiving and sound of a melody. Isaiah 51:3.
And now I call all of you to Zion, that mountain of grace. I give you feet like hind’s feet to run upon the heights so you can see things as I do. Blessed.
Remember when Balak tried to make Balaam stand on a mountain above Israel encamped in the desert and curse them? But all Balaam could see over them was blessing and he could not curse what I had blessed. They were in Covenant with Me. And in Christ you are as well, and it is a new Covenant with better promises.
You who are in Christ Jesus are blessed, not based on your performance but by who I have made you to be in Jesus, My children, the people that I have blessed. Even before the foundation of the world I knew you and blessed you with every spiritual blessing in My Kingdom in Christ.
I see all time and I know those who are Mine, whose hearts are towards Me even before they know Me. Those who love Me are known by Me.
I saw you in Christ before the foundation of the world, that you would be holy and blameless before Me. And in My great love for mankind, I preordained you, though you each went your own way and followed the devil, and I opened up a new and living way back to Me to be born again as My children. I draw you back into Me through Jesus Christ. We are reconciled and the division caused by sin is gone, the dividing wall has been eliminated by Christ. He lit your lamp and I illuminated the darkness around you and with Him you leaped over the wall. I raised you with Him and seated you with Him in Heaven with Me in your born again spirit.
My plans and intentions for you are not to withhold things from you as the devil told Adam and Eve, but to give you My Kingdom, which I have already done for those in Christ. Not for works you have done but for work I have done in you who will return to Me.
By My Spirit I work within you to will and to do what you then must work out by renewing your mind and offering your body as a living sacrifice of worship to use your body for Kingdom purposes on earth, which is to save and bless, and no longer for the purposes of the realm of darkness. For I have rescued you from the realm of darkness and translated you into the Kingdom of My Beloved Son, in whom you have forgiveness of sin by His blood. Your sins are gone, washed in His Blood, and I have qualified you to share the inheritance of My saints in light.
You are no longer in darkness; you are abiding in My light. And you are light as well, children of light. You should not give the darkness any part in you now that you are a new creation in Christ.
But many of you have not awakened to righteousness as yet and are still only thinking of yourself as an unworthy sinner whose sins are still before Me, though forgiven, but seeing future sins and putting you back in the realm of darkness and now unforgiven by Me. This is a lie. In Jesus, it is an eternal redemption. You are not just forgiven of your sins, though you are, but there is MUCH MORE to Salvation than that. Your sins are gone. But not just gone on the old patched up you. Gone in the new creation that is you in Christ.
This is an act of My Will in accord with My lovingkindness and faithfulness. My Will from the beginning as seen in My first words to men is to bless, to give you all the works of My hands to empower you to prosper and increase in every area of your life, including joy and a sound mind.
In Christ, I have freely bestowed My grace, My own divine life, upon you as My beloved. I have taken you back to Eden again when all was new in you.
How can I do this when you have sinned against Me and been born according to the flesh from corrupted seed? By the Blood and by My Word. In Jesus you have redemption through His Blood, the forgiveness of your trespasses, according to the riches of My grace which I lavish on you every moment now and forever.
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. Ephesians 2:4-7.
I want to explain something to you that you must grasp so that you will never sin again. Sin has no more power over you as it did when you were born from your parents in the flesh. You are noT the same any longer. You now are not to consider yourself as you were before—born of perishable seed so that your flesh and soul control you, you have been born again from imperishable seed so that your spirit now controls your soul and your flesh. It was for liberty that Christ freed you and where My Spirit is there is liberty.
Jesus came and preached to repent for My Kingdom was at hand. If you think the word “repent” means to feel remorse as you grieve over your sins that is not what it means. The noun remorse comes from the Latin roots re for “again” and mordere “to bite.” So, if you feel remorse, it means that your conscience is working on you, your past actions are biting you back, and making you feel very regretful.
My definition of “repent” is and always was in the Old Covenant and the New Covenant, to return to My way of thinking about everything, including yourself. It is seeing things as I do.
And how do you know how I see things? I share My thoughts and Words with you. I have written them by inspiration of My Spirit (God-breathed Words) and you have a whole book of them called the Bible. And have My Spirit in you to teach you all things, remind you of all I have said, and to guide you to all truth. And all truth is found in My Word. My Word is truth and it sanctifies you. It will wash your mind and your body and the Blood of My Son cleanses you of all the stain of sin.
There is no truth apart from My Word. Thus if it does not line up with My Word it is a lie.
By the Blood of My Son you are cleansed from the corruption and marring of My image in you by the seed of the devil, that is, what taking in his lies as truth and living that lie in lawlessness has done to the imperishable seed of My Word. In Christ I have created you again of imperishable seed.
You must understand that you are freed from the corruption of sin and death, though your body is still mortal at this time but a time is coming when the fullness of redemption makes you totally freed from any corruption at all.
See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is. And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure. 1 John 3:1-3.
Your unique and beautiful spirit had been quenched and lay as if dead in the tomb of your soul, dead to Me and alive to sin. Then My great love for you manifested in Jesus who came and paid for your sins in full (past, present and future, an eternal redemption) so that you died with Him to sin and I raised you up alive to Me in Him that you may now live free now in Me.
If you are still acting like you did before you took Jesus as your Lord, trapped by sin, anger, depression, addictions, malice and anxiety, you do not understand what took place in you and you are still walking in the flesh and not the spirit. And this is a lack of knowledge and understanding of My Word and the power in My Word and in the Blood. You do not really have a problem with the devil any longer you are having a problem with your unrenewed mind who is locking you in the prison of wrong believing, which leads to wrong thinking, which leads to wrong words (and you are ensnared by the words of your mouth), and ultimately to wrong actions, which are not the good deeds I prepared for you in Christ Jesus when I created you anew as My masterpiece again freed from the corruption of sin.
If you have received Jesus as your Lord and are still under the spirit of fear and condemnation you have simply forgotten or never understood the purification of your sins by the Blood of Christ. 2 Peter 1:9.
“Come now, and let us reason together,” says the LORD, “Though your sins are as scarlet, they will be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they will be like wool. Isaiah 1:18.
Your sins are GONE and I remember them no more by the Blood of the Lamb and you have been born out of corrupted seed to incorruptible seed by My Word and the regeneration of My Spirit, the living water of My Word. And the Blood and the Word continually cleanse and wash you if you walk in the Light, and you do that by remaining in My Word and My Word remaining in you.
The Blood and the Word have overcome the corrupted seed the devil has sown. I have returned you to the Eden Blessing of abundant life.
Jesus came to bring you life in abundance. Your good Shepherd has led you back to the green pastures of Eden where there is no want and given you His body and Blood as the fruit of the tree of life as your great High Priest. You who eat His body and drink His Blood have eternal life. And where was that Covenant sealed? On the Cross, the tree where the curse was reversed.
And the process of redemption from the curse of the imperishable seed will complete when the last corruption, that is, physical death, goes under Christ’s feet; and yours as well since you are seated with Him, in Him, and are joint heirs made complete in Him. And I will catch you up in the clouds with Him and in the twinkling of an eye, which is less than a pico second, your corruptible body of flesh will put on the incorruptible body of glory, and you will be clothed again in majesty and splendor that Adam and Eve were stripped of by sin.
Now I say this, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I tell you a mystery; we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we will be changed. For this corruptible must put on the incorruptible, and this mortal must put on immortality. But when this corruptible will have put on the incorruptible, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then will come about the saying that is written, “Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law; but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord. 1 Corinthians 15:50-58.
What you do now with and in your body bears eternal fruit. Set your sights that way and do not live in the futile, hostile, and idle life of those who do not know Me. Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ by His blood and by My Word in the Holy Spirit. Make the most of your time. You have been redeemed.
So look again at repentance, for if you do not repent you shall all likewise perish. To repent is not just to feel sorrow for your sins so you can be forgiven, though it starts there at the Cross, but it is transformation from darkness to light. It begins at the new birth of your spirit, but though your spirit is a new creation your soul and body are not. So you must feed your mind a new diet of Spirit food and not flesh food and renew your mind thereby so you are transformed (metamorphosis, a caterpillar to a butterfly) so that you may know what My Will for you is, that which is good and pleasing and perfect. Those are the three levels you can go to in doing My Will, they coincide with the thirtyfold (good), sixtyfold (pleasing), and hundredfold (perfect) harvest of My Word planted and grown in your life, which is the process of the renewal of your mind (to think differently after being born again by being in fellowship with Me). This is also the three levels of growth in My Word from milk (good), meat (pleasing) and honey (perfect).
This process is completed in the resurrection of your body to a glorified body of heavenly substance that is forever. And you will then be rewarded for the deeds you have done in the body.
And when it is complete what I have begun in you in Christ, you will be just like Me—imperishable and incorruptible to match your justified and glorified spirit.
The process of salvation is complete at the second coming of Christ but you are sealed by the Holy Spirit in Christ as a pledge of the redemption of your body even now.
You have passed from death to life.
“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.” John 5:24.
Let go of the old man and put on the new. And you do this only one way, by hearing and hearing, thinking and thinking, speaking and speaking, and doing and doing My Word. It will transform you.
And think about this, a caterpillar to become a butterfly must eat and eat and eat until it sheds its old man five times and then dies to itself in the secret place of the cocoon dies to its old body and the imaginary discs that were unformed substance before now begin to form the body of the old caterpillar anew. They become wings, a mouth that sucks sweet nectar of flowers, and eyes that see a vast array of colors on the spectrum and see distances and vistas of flowers. The caterpillar only saw indistinctly light and dark with dim vision. And when the transformation is done, the beautiful new creation freed from the old crawling worm, takes off in flight sometimes even migrating great distances to its homeland. And once a butterfly it NEVER goes back to being a crawling caterpillar. Do you understand what I am saying? By grace you have been saved do not return to slavery of sin and death a second time.
You are not a sinner that is forgiven. You are a whole new transformation to a new creation. No longer believe the lie of the devil that you are still a corrupted sinner that is under condemnation and shame. That man is gone. All is new.
Remember you have died with Christ to the old man of sin and have been raised up with Him to new life with Me. You now soar with eagle wings. You are safe in My hand.
We know that God’s children do not make a practice of sinning, for God’s Son holds them securely, and the evil one cannot touch them. We know that we are children of God and that the world around us is under the control of the evil one. And we know that the Son of God has come, and he has given us understanding so that we can know the true God. And now we live in fellowship with the true God because we live in fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ. He is the only true God, and he is eternal life. 1 John 5:18-20.
Never let the devil show you the old man again. Show him the new one. An overcomer that treads him under your feet that takes out the sword of the Spirit and cuts down every lie he speaks to you with My Word.
Sin is no longer a master over you, your spirit now directs your mind and rules your body. I have washed you, cleansed you, sanctified you, and made you entirely new. The sin is gone out of your spirit, it is alive to Me and dead to sin.
No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 1 John 3:9.
I love you. You have been born again by imperishable seed and are again in My unmarred image in your spirit. You are not of corruption but of incorruption. Jesus is the resurrection and the life. Consider yourself dead to sin and alive to Me in Christ Jesus, favored, beloved, holy, blameless, and beyond reproach. Not because of your works but because of My Work in you through Christ. He made peace by the Blood of His Cross. Keep feeding yourself on My Word and not the words of the world, the flesh and the devil. Keep yourself in My love building yourself up in your most holy faith by praying and singing in the pure words of the Spirit, tongues. And I who gave you My only Son so you would not perish but have eternal life will complete the good work I have begun in you till your redemption is complete on the Day of Christ Jesus. Be ready for His return.
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 5:23-25.
