Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return to the LORD, and He will have compassion on him, and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:7.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:
You will be moved by what you are full of. If you are deficient in an area you need to feed more in that area. Some believers are strong in faith for healing but are deficient in the area of faith for finances and prosperity. Some are strong in faith for finances but are deficient in the area of faith for healing. I could go on. I have told you to forget not ALL My benefits, do not be deficient even in one.
I know My plans and purposes for you, and they are for you SHALOM (complete wholeness and prospering in every area of your life—spiritual, emotional, physical, and relational) and not evil, to give you a future full of good things and a hope. My joy is to lead you out of slavery and lack to freedom and abundance.
And He brought forth His people with joy, His chosen ones with a joyful shout. Psalm 105:43.
I desire in all things that you prosper and are in good health even as your soul prospers. 3 John 1:2. And how does your soul prosper? By walking in the truth.
For the shalom completeness to be operating in every area of your life it must come from the inside out. And it comes only one way, by walking in the truth, that is, by knowing what you have and how to access and receive it.
My Word is truth. The only way you will have all is to know and obey My Word. Shama, which is a Hebrew word that I tell you to do often. It means to listen with attention and take in what you are hearing as your own, and the also to obey what you have heard. It is heeding and obeying My Words. And when you do that you will have the Blessing of SHALOM, Numbers 6:24-26—wholeness in every area of your life, not fullness in one area and deficiency in another.
When I redeemed My people out of slavery in Egypt, I did not take them out in the condition they were in—broken in body and without finances of their own, I took them out laden with silver and gold and not a feeble one among them. Strong and rich. And I took them out to lead them in to a land flowing with milk and honey, of rich valleys, flowing rivers, fruit trees and fields of rich harvests. And I gave them beautiful cities they did not build, and large houses filled with precious things that they did not build or fill, vineyards they did not plant, and wells they did not dig. All they had to do was go in and take possession of the land I had already given to them since My covenant with Abraham by driving out the wicked inhabitants who had established themselves therein. But I told them I would fight for them and with them if they would just go in and face the enemy.
But they did not feed on these promises enough and the first generation I redeemed out of slavery did not have the faith to go in. They ate at the table of doubt and unbelief rather than at the table of My Word to them. I called what they said an evil report. And so it was, they chose the evil one’s lies, that matched the temporal, over My Words of truth, which matched the eternal, and not only matched it, but had eternal life in them. And the glorious outcome I set before them on the table in the wilderness to eat to be strong to go forward would have blessed their lives and given them the shalom and future they really desired to live, but they would not eat what I offered and grow thereby.
You have to be aware of the devil’s tactics or he will shortchange you. He will steal your life away from you, the very life My Son died to give to you.
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. John 10:10.
Now there is something that most, if not all, believers are deficient in and need to feed on until you have this truth established in your soul. You have to know you are not just forgiven in Christ, but that in Him your sins are GONE. My forgiveness is not something that I give when you are in My favor but that I withhold when you are not. It is My gift to you but I made it your legal right. It is not anything you need to cajole Me for, it is who I am. And that is why I gave you My Son.
Rather you have burdened Me with your sins, you have wearied Me with your iniquities. I, even I, am the one who wipes out your transgressions for My own sake, and I will not remember your sins. Put Me in remembrance, let us argue our case together; state your cause, that you may be proved right. Isaiah 43:24-26.
You must understand and be firmly established in righteousness to be far from the oppression of the devil and to walk in the truth that sets you free..
“In righteousness you will be established; you will be far from oppression, for you will not fear; and from terror, for it will not come near you. If anyone fiercely assails you it will not be from Me. Whoever assails you will fall because of you.” Isaiah 54:14-15.
Many of you will answer that you know that Christ died for your sins. But do you really have in your heart that I made you righteous with My own righteousness in Christ by accounting all your sins to him and taking them away from you? Do you really know this? If you do, you will be rejoicing always, praying without ceasing and giving constant thanks.
But too many are not. You are burdened, remorseful, filled with regret and guilt over past sins or even ones you did today that you have confessed and felt bad about but cannot seen to get out from under the accusations in your soul and are still begging and pleading with Me over and over with tears to forgive you and give you back your salvation and My approval. The problem is you do not understand what I have done for you in Christ and you are not aware of the devil’s tactics. Consequently you are partaking at the wrong table and the more you eat the devil’s accusations, that have the appearance of truth for you have done those things he accuses you of night and day, the lower you will go.
Come now to Me, and let us reason together, though your sins are as scarlet, they will be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they will be like the spotless fleece of the unblemished Lamb, Isaiah 1:18, and you can go forward rejoicing with Me like a calf out of the stall for the Sun of Righteousness has arisen with healing in His rays. Malachi 4:2.
Think of this, if someone took ALL your money away from you, even if you had millions of dollars, would you have any money? No, you would not. Well, in Jesus I took ALL your sins, faults, failings, and iniquities and put them on Him and He bore them in His own flesh and they became His though He had not done them, but He agreed to take them into His sinless flesh as your sin offering. The wages and judgment on sin is death and He took that punishment for you and went down to the dust of death, to the very depths of hell. He tasted death for all of you so that you who receive Him and all He has done will never taste death, that is, eternal death, the second death.
For you who have received Jesus as your Lord, and believed in your heart I raised Him from the dead, from the very depths of Hell to the heights of Heaven on the throne at My right hand for your justification, are holy, blameless, sinless, and beyond reproach before Me.
For it was the Father’s good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him, and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, having made peace through the blood of His cross; through Him, I say, whether things on earth or things in heaven. And although you were formerly alienated and hostile in mind, engaged in evil deeds, yet He has now reconciled you in His fleshly body through death, in order to present you before Him holy and blameless and beyond reproach. Colossians 1:19-22.
It is no longer your fault. It was your fault, but He took your faults away from you and left you with His righteousness, which is My righteousness since He and I are one. I was in Him reconciling you to Myself, not counting your sins against you.
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 5:21.
He died for your redemption, he rose for your justification, in other words, for your total vindication from all sin from the day you were born to the day you die to your earthly life and wake up in the joy of My presence and the delights at My right hand forever.
It does not matter if you did the sins after you took Jesus as your Lord or you did them before. It is an eternal redemption that He did once for all, for all for all time from beginning to end.
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. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only this, but we also exult in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation. Romans 5:8-11.
I saved you by His life, death, and resurrection and He continues now as your great High Priest at My right hand, with His eternal blood on the mercy seat in Heaven, to eternally make intercession for you to save you to the uttermost. What He did in the flesh as true man was done in time, but as true God the effect of His death was in the eternal so it applies to all from the beginning to the end of time and justifies you for eternity. It is an eternal redemption, not just one time, otherwise He would have to keep dying over and over from the creation of the world, but He died once for ALL. Into this truth angels long to search. But it is for you.
What I did for you in Christ Jesus is tremendous. It is beyond all you can ask or imagine. I took every evil deed, thought, emotion, omission, rebellion, and shameful thing you ever did and made it for you as if it had never been. I put it all on Christ and made you free. And how did I do it? By the blood. The life is in the blood and I have given it to you to make atonement on the altar.
The bronze altar of the tabernacle of Moses whereupon the spotless lamb, goat, or bull was sacrificed as a burnt, sin, guilt, or peace offering and the blood poured out upon the altar was a shadow and type of the good things to come in Christ. It was a covering for sin, done on credit (like a purchase by credit card) by faith, but Jesus came and paid all that debt off in full. He nailed that debt to the cross and made it an eternal redemption and turned the devil’s authority over you to nothing. He is under your feet, keep him there. Tread on his accusations by telling him about the blood of the lamb and then testify to My Word that YOUR SINS AND OFFENSES I REMEMBER NO MORE.
And the Holy Spirit also testifies to us; for after saying, “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the LORD: I will put My laws upon their heart, and on their mind I will write them,” He then says, “And their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.” Hebrews 10:15-17.
They are not just forgiven, your sins are gone like the mist in the morning sun, borne by Him who knew NO sin but became SIN for you all.
“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.
If you have received My Son as your Lord and have confessed your sins to Me and asked My pardon for them and your sins are still troubling you, accusing you, and condemning you and you are doing penance and beating yourself for them, fasting for them, pleading about them, thinking this will alleviate your guilt and earn My favor, then you are not pleasing Me, you are greatly DISHONORING Me. YOU ARE TELLING ME THE BLOOD OF JESUS WAS NOT ENOUGH TO TAKE AWAY YOUR SINS! But it was, more than enough for every sin committed from Adam to the last person to live on earth before the Judgment comes.
And the sad thing is this. Many people think it is holy and pleases Me for you to keep calling yourself a sinner after you have been saved by confessing Jesus as your Lord and to keep praying to everyone in Heaven and on earth to pray for you to Me that I would forgive you. This does not honor Me or edify anyone to who they are in Christ. It stops you from exalting in Me. It makes you ignore so great a salvation that My Son and I went to great lengths to give you.
The greatest and highest honor you can give Me is to apply that Blood that was shed for you with so much love to release you from your sins to your sins and thank Me. If you would turn those tears of shame and remorse to tears of joy for what I have done for you in Christ, you would please Me. If you would celebrate My love for you in so great a salvation, it pleases Me and causes My anointing, My power, My grace to overflow into your life. Open your heart, enlarge your heart with the truth of who I have made you in Christ.
And it is a spiritual law that as you judge so you shall be judged. The standard you measure with must be measured back to you. If you will not forgive others or yourself, you are telling Me that the Blood of Jesus is NOT enough to take away sin. This is a horrible lie, straight from the pit of hell, but if that is your standard of judgment I must apply it to you. For it is by the blood alone that I have forgiven you and taken away your and everyone else’s sin as well. Jesus died as a ransom for all. It is true each individual must receive this gift to establish it in their lives, you can refuse a gift and stay in your sins, but it does not change that the gift of righteousness in Christ is there for all.
You must be aware of the devil’s tactics, for he will try to keep you trapped in your sins so that you will give up hope of going forward to your high calling in Christ and live an unfruitful life in fear, no hope, depression, self-condemnation, and blame. The life of the damned in hell where the worm of guilt dies not and the fire is never extinguished. You should not let him give you a life of hell on earth when you are not going there when you pass from this life, which you are not if you have received Jesus as your Lord.
The devil acts in two ways. He is the accuser of the brethren (believers), which is like a prosecutor in a court with you as the defendant. And he is not just accusing you, he is accusing you before Me. Why? He knows scripture well. He knows that your sins and offenses I remember no more, so he tries to remind Me. But he is doing this to get you to agree with him, for he knows it is by YOUR words you are acquitted and by YOUR words you are condemned and your words will control. So even though there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, if you condemn yourself as not righteous that is the decision that will govern your life. When the Israelites, who refused to go in the promised land, said they would rather die in the desert, I had to give them what they declared for you have dominion authority over your own life, I do not violate your free will.
And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. Then I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, he who accuses them before our God day and night. And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death. Revelation 12:9-12.
This is a courtroom scene. I am the Judge and Satan is acting as prosecutor, he is trying to remind Me of your sins and make you condemn yourself and live a life of hell on earth. So how do you win every time he starts that up again? In court you swear to tell the truth so you answer his accusations with the truth. That all your sins are gone by the blood of the lamb. Jesus paid the price with His life blood and released you from your sins and made you a kingdom, priests unto Me. And your sins are gone, I remember them no more. And to that you testify before Me and before the devil. And Jesus and the Holy Spirit are there as advocates for you, testifying and being witness on your behalf. The Holy Spirit witnesses with your spirit that you are forgiven and are My children, born again and walking in newness of life. And Jesus as the High Priest of YOUR words in agreement with His will present your case before Me with His blood on the mercy seat for He ever lives to make intercession for you. That is courtroom talk. So what is the law on which you plead your case? The law of the blood, for your sins it did erase. And by your words and the testimony of two witnesses, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, you are acquitted and free.
Next time Satan comes and reminds you of your “horrible” sin and tries to make you cringe, cry and beg Me for forgiveness, just tell that thought you do not remember that anymore. He will try then to fill you in on all the details. Just reply, “My Father is greater than all and He has forgiven Me and forgotten it and I honor Him by doing the same. The blood of the Lamb has washed that all away as if it had never been. I have washed my robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.” And then cast that thought out of your mind in Jesus’ Name and sing a song of deliverance and praise. Smile at Me and rejoice in so great a salvation, thank Me for so great a grace and enjoy that the sin is no more between us. It is gone, gone, gone. Apply the blood and rejoice and give thanks, give the joyful shout for your sins and offenses are no more.
They looked to Him and were radiant, and their faces will never be ashamed. Psalm 34:5
But Satan also is more subtle, as he was in the wilderness when he tempted Jesus, he plays a game with you, and it is a diabolical game of chess, this is also what he played with Eve. And if you don’t check his moves, he will capture all the pieces on the board of your life. But if you check him three times, after the third try you can take checkmate and win that round, but he will come back at what he feels an opportune time to start another round.
The devil plays this game with you privately and no matter whether you want to play or not, he will, and if you do not respond he will steal from you if he remains unchecked. He will begin with a thought such as a temptation to sin in some way, whether it be anxiety, lust, addictions, gossip, resentment, bitterness or the like or an unclean spirit such as fear, illness or pain and you must answer this immediately with the truth that directly addresses it in My Word, such as the scriptures about Me as the LORD your healer and so many more about the healing that is already yours in Jesus and cast that unclean spirit of illness, pain, and/or fear out in Jesus’ Name. And then rejoice in Me that you are free of that thought, that you are healed, that I have made you pure, that you have the mind of Christ, and that I did not give you a spirit of fear but power, love, and a sound mind. And that is one check, and just as with Jesus in the wilderness he will come back with two more moves, which you must check again by answering them with the truth that addresses that thought, symptom, storm or whatever evil he has brought, and cast that out again and then worship and rejoice. And on the third time, do the same and then take checkmate and he has to flee from you. And this is the way you tread on him, by answering his lies with the truth .I could go into this in much more detail, but My Spirit will teach you all things in this.
I love you and I gave you the blood (the blood of the Lamb), the water (My Word), and the Spirit (your advocate, witness, guide to all truth, and the one who testifies for you) and I gave you the NAME, above every other name to whom every knee must bow in Heaven, on earth and under the earth and proclaim the JESUS CHRIST IS LORD. If He is your Lord, honor what He did for you and rejoice in so great a Salvation. Remember Me, if you are still thinking your sins are not gone you are DISHONORING Me and that is not worship, it is not gratitude, and it will never give you a fruitful life. Have you ever really enjoyed Me? I mean just let yourself be free of all that would hold you back from complete trust, open fellowship in the Light, and casting all your care on Me? I have taken all your sins and put them on My Son, and He and I took care of them. They have been justly dealt with and you are legally clean of all of them. Your sentence to return to dust has been satisfied in full, Jesus went to the dust of death for you and paid back to Me the eternal life you lost in Adam. All is well between us. Shalom. You can have it all. And remember whatever you are full of is what will move you. Make sure you are full of My Words.
