Good Morning Precious and Dearly Loved and Completely Saved, Healed, Delivered and Prospered Child of God!
Do you want to grow in the Spirit or stay in the same place you have been in? You would think this is a ridiculously obvious question, but to really grow, each person will have to let go some very strong religious strongholds and mindsets! The first hurdle to the religious mindset to overcome is that, at the Cross, Jesus has taken away ALL sin and ALL punishment and wrath, once and for all! “He is the atoning, (propitiation), sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.” 1 John 2:2. You need to see that the problem of sin has been taken care of by Jesus at the Cross that you are now dead to sin!
This is a huge hurdle for the religious mindset stuck in tradition! “For we know that old self was crucified with Him so that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin—because anyone who has died has been freed from sin.” Romans 6:6-7. Most of religious tradition does not believe this! They don’t see themselves as completely dead and free to sin by what Jesus did on the Cross! The religious, traditional mindset doesn’t see that not only was sin and wrath for sin as taken away by Jesus, by this mindset doesn’t believe that sickness, disease, pain, sorrow, grief, all infirmities was taken away there as well!
“Surely our griefs (from the Hebrew word “chalan and choli”; sicknesses, diseases, afflictions, griefs, illnesses, anxiety, calamity…) He Himself bore, (The Hebrew word “nasa or nasah”; meaning to lift off or away, to carry, to take away), and our sorrows ( the Hebrew word “makob”; meaning physical and emotional pain) He carried He carried; Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, Smitten of God and afflicted. But He was pierced through our transgressions, (revolt or rebellion), He was crushed for our iniquities (the Hebrew word “avon”; guilt and punishment for sin); The chastening for our well-being (the Hebrew word “Shalom and shalam”; completeness, wholeness of entire being, health, relationships with people and God, peace, perfection, soundness, welfare, as in everything is well, prosperity, nothing lacking or missing, abundance, tranquility) fell upon Him, And by His scourging we are healed (the Hebrew word “rapha”; completely, entirely, thoroughly, absolutely healed and made whole in every area of life; become fresh, healed completely by God, purified of all sickness and disease). Isaiah 53:4-5.
“Who His own self bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live into righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed (the Greek word “iamai”; To be completely and supernaturally healed by the Lord, the Great Physician; this word is used when Jesus healed someone physically most of the time, but it is a complete wholeness of the entire person as well).
It is necessary to see that you have already been completely healed, spiritually and physically, made whole, perfected, glorified and one with Jesus, and made as He is! If you don’t believe this, you will be trying to do all this yourself! You cannot kill and take away the sinful nature, but Jesus did! You cannot be good enough to be completely free yourself of guilt and condemnation, but Jesus has taken it all away! You cannot perfect yourself or make yourself one with Jesus, but He did! You have to accept the complete “finished work” of Jesus on the Cross for you! You need revelation by the Holy Spirit of this in your heart, not just an intellectual understanding in your head that you have been completely freed of all sin, sickness, disease, wrath, condemnation, sorrow….
Then you need to see that you have justified, glorified, perfected, made holy, and are as Jesus is in the heavenly realm, one with Him! You need to see Jesus inside of youself, with His new heart and Spirit; and you inside of Him, as He is in heaven! Then you need to tenaciously take hold of all this Grace given to you by the power of the Holy Spirit and own it for yourself! You are saved “by Grace through Faith”.
You need to wrap your heart around the Grace and take hold of it yourself by the power of the Holy Spirit! As you accept all this Grace into your heart, you will manifest the kingdom of God and His glory on the earth! You will grow and not be stagnant! Just keep taking hold of the “Good News of Great Joy” until your heart is established in it and you are walking in the prosperity and abundance of the kingdom and heart of the Father, full of His unconditional Love for all people and in His supernatural healing power! Just keep taking hold of your inheritance, this is your job! Just don’t quit, give up or get weary in this taking hold of all the Grace! You will reap a huge harvest if you don’t give up!!!! If you fall down, just get back up! “There is NO condemnation In Christ Jesus!”!!!!!!
