Hello Precious and Dearly Loved Saint and Child of Our Abba Father!
“I will sprinkle clean water on you; and will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put My Spirit in you…” Ezekiel 36:25-27.
Most of religious and Christian counselors are trying to go back and fix the old man. They look back into a person’s past to try and figure out where a problem started. They try to fix and heal the old heart. Jesus does not try to fix the old man, He kills and crucifies him at the Cross with Himself!
“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live…” Galatians 2:20. “For we know that our old self was crucified with Him so that the body of sin might be done away with, that bwe should no longer be slaves to sin—because anyone who has died has been freed from sin. Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with Him (In Him, One with Him, as He is!)… In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus (where we have been glorified, perfected as Jesus is in heaven)! Romans 6:6-11.
The problem is that most Christian leaders and counselors don’t really believe this! They are still trying to fix the old man rather than reckoning the old man in sin as dead! They believe that if they can go back into a person’s life and find the root of a particular behavior that they can fix or change a person. The problem is that the heart of man is unsearchable and no one can understand it, even if they 50,000 degrees and letters after their name!!!!
“As high as the heavens are high and earth is deep, so the hearts of kings are unsearchable.” Proverbs 25:3. But people still go back and try to figure out the person’s problems. WE are not supposed to figure out the old man, we are to reckon him dead and then embrace the new man who is in Christ, who is as Jesus is!!!!
Everything that happens to the mother, affects the baby in the womb which in turn affects the basic belief system and attitudes and beliefs of the baby for the rest of its life! It is impossible to unravel a person’s belief system. Every thought and event and emotion… is recorded on a person’s heart. Jesus doesn’t fix the old heart, He takes out the old one and gives us a new one! Our job now is to accept and believe and TAKE HOLD that we have been given a new heart and that we are new creations, perfected, one with Jesus, in Him and as He is, in the Spirit!!! WE may be struggling in the flesh, but this does not change the truth and reality of the Spirit realities!
“Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to TAKE HOLD of that which Christ Jesus took hold me. Brothers, I do not consider myself to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead…” Philippians 3:12-13. We are to take hold of the Truth that we are dead to sin, the old heart has been taken away, and we have new creations In Christ Jesus!!!
In Christ we have been completely, 100%, healed, delivered, prospered and made whole as Jesus is, seated in Him in the heavenly realms!!! We are to take hold of this new Truth, not go back and fix the old man!
Are you ready to reckon yourself as dead to sin, dead to the law, dead to sickness, disease, lack, poverty, weakness, fear….. and totally alive to the fullness of Christ and that you are as He is in heaven, right now?
Can you accept this as personal truth for yourself in the depths of your heart? Most do not accept this as their personal truth, but will you do it and obey the Truth and honor what Jesus did on the Cross? “By His stripes, you HAVE BEEN HEALED (delivered, prospered, and made completely whole as Jesus in the Spirit).” 1 Peter 2:24. “Good News of Great Joy”!!!!!! SHALOM!!!!!!!
