Paul, a bond-servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ, for the faith of those chosen of God and the knowledge of the truth which is according to godliness, in the hope of eternal life, which God, who cannot lie, promised before time eternal, but at the proper time manifested, even His Word, in the proclamation with which I was entrusted according to the commandment of God our Savior. Titus 1:1-3.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:

The gifts of the Holy Spirit are for those who are born again. The gifts cannot enter a spirit that is dead to Me and alive to sin. Before the gifts of healings flow there must be a knowledge that your sins are forgiven. Jesus told you forgiveness of sins and healing are related, in fact, intertwined as one.

But Jesus, aware of their reasonings, answered and said to them, “Why are you reasoning in your hearts? Which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins have been forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Get up and walk’? But, so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins,”—He said to the paralytic—“I say to you, get up, and pick up your stretcher and go home.” Immediately he got up before them, and picked up what he had been lying on, and went home glorifying God. Luke 5:22-25.

But this should not surprise you. All gifts of the Spirit and the gift the Spirit Himself only flow where sin is not only forgiven but gone. Unless you are holy, blameless and beyond reproach My Spirit cannot dwell in your spirit. And in Jesus I have done just that for you.

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.

I accounted all your sins to Him and gave you His righteousness, which is the righteousness of God, which is My righteousness and the righteousness of My Spirit.

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.

In Jesus I not only forgave your sins, by His blood He released you from your sins as if you had never done them from the conception to the end of your life on earth.

Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood— and He has made us to be a kingdom, priests to His God and Father—to Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen. Revelation 1:5-6.

Your sins and offenses, your lawlessness, 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.” Now where there is forgiveness of these things, there is no longer offering for sin. Hebrews 10:15-18.

Jesus gave His eternal life for the eternal life you lost (murdered) once for all.

Every priest stands daily ministering and offering time after time the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins; but He, having offered one sacrifice for sins for all time, sat down at the right hand of God, waiting from that time onward until His enemies be made a footstool for His feet. For by one offering He has perfected for all time those who are continually being sanctified. Hebrews 10:11-14.

The penalty has been paid in full, there is no more that needs to be done on My part for you to walk in righteousness and holiness. Thus there is no need for any further sacrifices to be made to take away sins as there was under the old covenant in the tabernacle of Moses, for the blood of lambs, goats, and bulls cannot propitiate sins for their blood is perishable. All creation came under the curse of sin and death through Adam’s sin since you have dominion over creation, and Adam brought not only his own seed but all that he had dominion over into the realm of darkness by his abdication from the truth by submitting to the lies of the devil and giving his dominion to the evil one in which unrighteousness had been found which turned him violent and sin entered him.

The blood of Jesus is a continual flow of forgiveness, healing, mercy and grace.

If we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. 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 1:7-9.

His blood still makes intercession for you on the Mercy Seat (propitiatory) in Heaven.

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 have redeemed you, not for any good works you did but because of who I am. I am love.

“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.” Shout for joy, O heavens, for the LORD has done it! Isaiah 44:22-23.

“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 43:25-26.

Your part is to take and receive that gift by faith in the Name of My Son and to live and walk in the truth of your forgiveness by the blood of Jesus and to make that your testimony before Me. Testify with My Spirit that your sins are forgiven, and not only forgiven but gone. Be established in the gift of righteousness I have given you and live far from the oppression of the devil and of sin. Sin is no longer master over you.  In Jesus, in the truth of My Word, I have set you free from sin, from the slavery to sin and death. Thus, My gift of the Holy Spirit can flow into you and He brings all the grace endowments, the gifts, that benefit you and all.

So when it was evening on that day, the first day of the week, and when the doors were shut where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in their midst and said to them, “Peace be with you.” And when He had said this, He showed them both His hands and His side.

Just as I had foretold, that is, given you a Word of Wisdom through My prophet Isaiah, “But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the chastening for our well-being (shalom) fell upon Him, and by His scourging we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5. And that is why Jesus showed them His pierced hands. You shall look on Him whom you have pierced. And the conclusion of this revelation to the disciples there on the first day of newness of life?

The disciples then rejoiced when they saw the Lord. So Jesus said to them again, “Peace (shalom) be with you; as the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” And when He had said this, He breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.” John 20:19-22.

The Holy Spirit. First He showed the signs of forgiveness, the pierced hands and the pierced side out of which flowed the blood and water, the fountain of continual cleansing and rebirth by the blood and the washing with water by the Word. And I sent Him as an ambassador of reconciliation, for I was in Christ not counting your sins against you but attributing them to Him. And so He sends you to be witnesses of this good news of salvation which gives you shalom and not evil, a future and a HOPE. And what is of first importance to tell before telling all the benefits I freely give in Him?

For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures. 1 Corinthians 15:3-4.

Peter told this good news to Cornelius and his household and My Spirit rushed into the cleansed and opened hearts who received.

Of Him all the prophets bear witness that through His name everyone who believes in Him receives forgiveness of sins.” While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who were listening to the message. All the circumcised believers who came with Peter were amazed, because the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out on the Gentiles also. For they were hearing them speaking with tongues and exalting God. Acts 10:43-46.

Why is this so? The gift of the Holy Spirit fulfills the promise that gave men HOPE after Adam brought death into the world and through his corrupted seed death descended to all men bringing sickness, weakness, aging, and ultimately physical death but this all happened in your body because of the death of your spirit to Me that had been turned alive to sin. Dead to Me, a hard stony heart, and alive to sin, open to evil which brings corruption and death, not only physical death but spiritual death meaning a life that would never rise up into My presence but would spend forever in the domain of the master you had chosen, the outer darkness of the continuum that is as different and opposite from Me as the east from the west. But in Jesus I brought you back into Myself in the center of the continuum and put your sins as far from you as the east is from the west.

As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us. Psalm 103:12.

I brought you back to the sunrise and away from the darkness of night, unending night, that comes when you reject the Light of the World.

And what is that HOPE? Well, what is the greatest gift I give you in Jesus which then flows into you, is sealed in you, and is guaranteed to you by My Spirit dwelling in you? ETERNAL LIFE.

Paul, a bond-servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ, for the faith of those chosen of God and the knowledge of the truth which is according to godliness, in the hope of eternal life, which God, who cannot lie, promised before time eternal, but at the proper time manifested, even His Word, in the proclamation with which I was entrusted according to the commandment of God our Savior. Titus 1:1-3.

This is overwhelming. If you, from this foundation laid in today’s Life Lesson, will understand what I will reveal to you in our next Life Lesson, your joy will continually overflow and never stop pouring into your heart and through your entire body and life. And healing and all the benefits of My Kingdom, that is, the Blessing, will chase you down and overwhelm you. You will come with confidence to Me and take, receive, and find every good thing given and every perfect gift just when needed.

I love you. There is so MUCH MORE I want to share with you. Enlarge your heart so My Spirit can teach you ALL things and remind you of ALL I have promised.

And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 1 John 5:11.
