In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace. Ephesians 1:7.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:
The breadth and length and height and depth of what I have done for you in Christ Jesus is beyond human and angelic understanding. Into these matters angels long to search. 1 Peter 1:12. What is man that I am so mindful of him?
You are of Me. You are not complete without Me but I am not complete without you. Every one of you is unique and my special treasure but also you are each part of the whole, the members of one body that is named with My Name. All parts unique but all necessary to complete the whole in perfect fullness. There is no one alone, it is family but closer. All unique members are working as one to function in the perfection of unity, a symphony of many into one cohesive masterpiece of glory with One Almighty Composer and Conductor who sang His song in each heart.
The LORD your God is in your midst, the Mighty Hero, He will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. Zephaniah 3:17.
I call you into being, form you in your mother’s womb, and share My life with you. I breathe My breath into you and you breathe it out with your first shout and the symphony begins.
The first man and woman sinned and went with another master, they rejected My Word and severed the relationship with Me, but that was not the end of My song of love. My mercy is forever. Each morning My mercies are new. A new day would dawn and the Sun of Righteousness would rise with healing in His rays for all who came to receive the light. And He is the Light of the world. No follower of His will ever walk in darkness but will have the Light of life.
Under your nation’s and state’s laws, when you violate a law, that is it, you must pay the penalty, whether it is a fine, imprisonment or both.
If you try to recover your rights after the statute of limitations runs on a claim, no matter how good your claim is, you are denied receiving that right. One day late and you are out. Denied access, banned forever.
Man’s laws are harsh. You break it and that is it.
But I am not like that. There is always another chance with Me. Like the prodigal son and the lost sheep. Return for I have forgiven you, your sins and offenses I remember no more, they have not shut you out for I have opened the door. One door. Jesus. I sent Him to take all your sins into His own flesh by divine imputation and offer His eternal life in the flesh for the eternal life you lost paying the penalty and the redemption in full by His own sinless blood through His death and then raising Him as the first born of many brethren in justification of new life. And when He died to sin once for ALL you died with Him to sin, and when I raised Him up from the dead, I raised you with Him to new life. He made peace through the blood of His Cross, reconciling you to Me holy, blameless and beyond reproach.
Your sins are not just forgiven, though they are that in Him, but they are GONE. Like they had never happened. No human court, no psychiatrist, no godless philosophy of positive thinking can ever clear your conscience from dead works, for the wages of sin is death. And that was the sentence for sin, eternal death apart from Me, “dust you are and to dust you shall return,” but Jesus went to the dust of death and tasted eternal death in the flesh for you all, but I raised Him in the Spirit that you too might be raised up to newness of life. Born again free of all that had robbed you of your prize of eternal life that I promised you before the world was made.
“I have wiped out your transgressions like a thick cloud and your sins like a heavy mist. Return to Me, for I have redeemed you.” Isaiah 44:22.
In Jesus, I took care of sin for all time and eternity, for in Him, unlike the blood of lambs, goats, and bulls, that I gave a temporary, on credit so to speak, cover to unintentional sins committed under the Covenant I made with Moses and My people, you have eternal redemption that removes every stain or vestige of sin because the sins went off of you onto Him and in exchange His righteousness was imputed to you.
I am not holding your sins and trespasses against you. The law does, under the law I gave Moses, if you intentionally sinned there was no forgiveness, no place of repentance, like Achan and his family when he violated the ban on Jericho, Joshua 7, and for unintentional sins it was only a covering waiting for the fullness of redemption in Christ to complete the payment. But in Christ all of that changed.
Therefore let it be known to you, brethren, that through Jesus forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you, and through Him everyone who believes is justified and made righteous in all things from which you could not be justified and made righteous in the Law of Moses. Acts 13:37-38.
He takes away the first in order to establish the second. By His will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. Hebrews 10:9-10.
And all I ask you to do is believe that I justify the ungodly, that I take all your sins away from you and make you holy in Jesus. That I have reconciled you to Myself where no law would have permitted reconciliation.
Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. 2 Corinthians 5:18-21.
You are not just a forgiven sinner; I have made you a new creation in Christ. The old you filled with sins, guilt, remorse and shame that would have kept you out of My presence forever is GONE.
Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. 1 Corinthians 5:17.
If you really understand the depth of what this all means to you, you would be rejoicing in Me always, praying (fellowshipping) with Me without ceasing, and constantly giving thanks that you have not been denied access for what you have done but given more access by a new and living way in His blood carved out for you in Christ Jesus.
Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Hebrews 10:19-22.
Under the law, if you sin, you are out, there is no place of repentance. Under grace, if you sin, you repent, and you are back in as if it had never been.
If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:8-9.
I took away not only your sins but all the shame, blame, remorse and guilt that goes with them so you should no longer be allowing these thoughts, emotions, and accusations to be holding you down. The devil still reminds you and accuses you day and night of your sins, failings, mistakes, and omissions but you must tell him to get behind you and go forward to the banquet of life I have prepared for you where I anoint your head with oil and your cup overflows with joy, grace, peace, and a cleansed conscience. I am your glory and the lifter of your head. No longer hang your head in shame. Look up at Me and smile! Your face will never be ashamed! For My Face is shining on you.
But You, O LORD, are a shield about me, my glory, and the One who lifts my head. Psalm 3:3.
Shame covered the face of Jesus in His passion and death and He suffered that for taking all your sins on Himself. He took your sins and faults and took care of them for you through His sufferings and death to satisfy divine justice, for the wages of sin is eternal death and that is the law, and He kept all the law for you.
It was hard for Him who is so pure to allow all sin to come into His flesh so that it was no longer on you, He sweat blood that hour that He accepted mankind’s sins in the Garden of Gethsemane. He prayed that hour might pass Him and yet He had come for that hour so that you would become faultless before Me.
He willingly took all your faults so it is no longer your fault. I know you did the sin but once He took it from you it was no longer yours. And He took them all and died once for ALL. All you have to do is believe and receive that gift of righteousness and you are in Him forever, sealed by My Spirit. But if you will not receive Him by faith, you will die in your own sins, not because He has not taken your sins, for He redeemed ALL people, but if you will not receive the gift I cannot force you to take it.
“Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for unless you believe that I am, you will die in your sins.” John 8:24.
If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation. Romans 10:9-10.
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, who were born, not of human bloods nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. John 1:12-13.
Born again by the imperishable seed of My Word and born into the New and Everlasting Covenant. For you cannot join with Jesus and with Me unless you join in the New Covenant. And even though Jesus died for your sins more than 2,000 years ago in time for you and many years ahead for when Moses lived, it still is one eternal sacrifice that covers all, for I and My Son are not limited by time. We are eternal. And even though He laid aside His God POWERS to become like you in all things but sin when He came in the flesh, He was still God and Man in one seamless life and all He did on earth had eternal weight and consequences. And actually that is true of you as well. What you do in time will determine your eternity.
But when Christ appeared as a high priest of the good things to come, He entered through the greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this creation; and not through the blood of goats and calves, but through His own blood, He entered the holy place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption. Hebrews 9:11-12.
For this reason He is the mediator of a new covenant, so that, since a death has taken place for the redemption of the transgressions that were committed under the first covenant, those who have been called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance. Hebrews 9:15.
In all this I hope you see one thing above all. I care for you and will go to any lengths to have you with Me forever. You have nothing to fear, all you need to do is have faith, release that faith, and enjoy your life. Forever.
I love you. I am here for you. Just call, I am as close as your heart.
