I CANNOT LEGISLATE A LAW OF RIGHTEOUSNESS THAT WILL FREE YOU OF YOUR SINFUL NATURE. Galatians 3:21 Is the law then against the promises of God? Certainly not! For if there had been a law given which could have given life, truly righteousness would have been by the law. ALL FLESH IS IN BONDAGE TO CORRUPTION AND THAT CURSE CAN ONLY BE BROKEN AND YOUR FLESH MADE RIGHTEOUS THROUGH A HEART-TRANSPLANT AND A SPIRIT-TRANSFUSION. I PLANNED FOR THE REDEMPTION OF YOUR SINS THROUGH THE DEATH OF MY SON. YOUR ABILITY TO KEEP MY REQUIREMENTS FOR A HOLY LIFE REST IN YOUR OBEDIENCE TO THE NEW “GOD-GIVEN HEART” AND “SPIRIT-FILLED LIFE” THAT YOU RECEIVE ONLY FROM MY SON DWELLING WITHIN YOU. HOW MUCH OF YOURSELF YOU YIELD TO CHRIST IS THE KEY TO HOW SPIRITUALLY ALIVE YOU WILL BECOME. Hebrews 8:10 “For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel: After those days,” says the Lord, “I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.” I WILL PUT WITHIN YOU A NEW HEART AND UNITE YOUR LIFE WITH MINE THROUGH THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST. THEY THAT WORSHIP ME MUST WORSHIP ME IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH. John 4:23-24 “But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
YOUR NATURE, BODY, SOUL, AND SPIRIT WILL BE CHANGED INTO MY IMAGE AS YOU WALK IN MY SPIRIT THROUGH MY SON AND LIVE BY MY WORD. IF YOU CEASE TO ABIDE IN CHRIST FULLY, YOUR BRANCHES BEGIN TO WITHER. IT IS ONLY THE SPIRIT OF LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS THAT CAN DELIVER YOU FROM THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH. Romans 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. IT IS CHRIST WITHIN YOU THAT BRINGS SPIRITUAL LIFE AND UNDERSTANDING OF THE THINGS OF GOD. John 3:6-7 “That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’” SOME OF YOU ARE FULLY LIVING YOUR LIFE THROUGH MY SON; OTHERS ARE ONLY GIVING “LIP SERVICE” TO ME. YOU ARE NOT IN DARKNESS ABOUT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH ME. BOTH YOU AND THE WORLD KNOW WHETHER YOU ARE TOTALLY SURRENDERED TO ME. A GODLY LIFE PRODUCES FRUIT: Psalm 1:3 He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper. I WANT ALL OF MY CHILDREN TO SHARE IN THE “BLESSED FULLNESS” AND REWARDS OF WALKING CLOSE TO ME.
YOU ARE CORRECT IN BELIEVING THAT BY LOVING AND OBEYING MY ETERNAL WORD YOU GAIN THE WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE OF GOD. YOU BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND SPIRITUAL TRUTHS THAT ARE FOREIGN TO YOUR OLD NATURE AND THE FLESHLY MIND. THE SINLESS NATURE OF THE SON OF GOD LIVING WITHIN YOU IS YOUR LIFE AND “HOPE OF GLORY.” Colossians 1:27 To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. THROUGH LIVING YOUR LIFE TOTALLY THROUGH CHRIST AND UNDER THE LEADING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, YOUR LIFE AND WORKS TAKE ON ETERNAL QUALITIES. THROUGH CHRIST’S INDWELLING YOU WILL BE ABLE TO LIVE YOUR LIFE FOR THE GLORY OF GOD (NOT FOR SELF) AND YOUR WORKS WILL FOREVER REMAIN AND BE REWARDED.
YOUR LIFE MUST BE BUILT ON A SPIRITUAL FOUNDATION THAT IS FOUND ONLY IN CHRIST. THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF THE LAW IS CREATED IN YOU THROUGH THE LIFE OF CHRIST WITHIN YOU AND THE GUIDANCE OF MY WORD AND SPIRIT. PRAYER IS ESSENTIAL. REMEMBER, YOU HAVE NOT BECAUSE YOU ASK NOT. THE THINGS YOU COULD NOT DO BECAUSE OF THE WEAKNESS OF YOUR FLESH, YOU NOW CAN DO THROUGH THE POWER OF CHRIST INDWELLING YOU. Romans 8:5 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. Romans 8:13-14 For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.
SOME OF YOU HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED THE JOY AND EXCITEMENT OF WALKING IN PERFECT HARMONY WITH ME, KNOWING THAT YOU ARE A MEMBER OF MY FAMILY AND UNDER MY DIVINE CARE AND GUIDANCE. DO YOU PERSONALLY KNOW AND BELIEVE YOU ARE BLESSED OF GOD AND EVERYTHING IN YOUR LIFE IS WORKING TOGETHER FOR YOUR ETERNAL GOOD? DO YOU HEAR MY SPIRIT WITHIN YOU SAYING “ABBA, FATHER”? Romans 8:15 For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” Galatians 4:6 And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!”
IF YOU ARE WALKING IN FULL OBEDIENCE TO THE LEADING OF MY SPIRIT, YOU CAN HAVE CONFIDENCE IN THE “BLESSEDNESS” OF YOUR LIFE. HEAR THE BLESSINGS I HAVE PRONOUNCED ON OBEDIENCE: Deuteronomy 28:1-7 “Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the LORD your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the LORD your God: Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the country. Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, the produce of your ground and the increase of your herds, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks. Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl. Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.” Deuteronomy 28:14 “So you shall not turn aside from any of the words which I command you this day, to the right hand or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.”
YOU HAVE NO EXCUSE FOR NOT OBEYING THE LEADING OF MY HOLY SPIRIT AND THE WAY OF LIFE I HAVE SET BEFORE YOU THROUGH CHRIST, THE LIVING WORD. YOU MAY THINK YOU CAN IGNORE MY WORD AND THE VOICE OF MY SPIRIT AS I SPEAK TO YOU, BUT I HAVE TOLD YOU THAT YOU WILL BE JUDGED BY THE VERY WORDS AND COMMANDMENTS I SPEAK. YOU ARE UNDER “GRACE” IF YOU HAVE ACCEPTED CHRIST WITHIN AND YOU ARE COMPLETELY EQUIPPED TO CARRY OUT MY EVERY COMMAND. 2Peter 1:3 As His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue. WHY DO MANY OF YOU LIVE SO CARELESSLY WITH YOUR LIVES AS THOUGH YOU WILL NOT ANSWER TO A HIGHER LAW OTHER THAN YOUR OWN? YOU CANNOT BUY ETERNAL LIFE, OBTAIN IT IN ANY WAY THROUGH YOUR OWN GOODNESS, OR DEPEND ON MY MAKING YOU AN EXCEPTION TO MY RULES FOR ENTRY INTO MY KINGDOM. YOU FACE EITHER ETERNAL LIFE WITH ME OR ETERNAL SEPARATION FROM ME! I WILL BE A FATHER UNTO MY CHILDREN AND WILL SUSTAIN THEM IN ALL OF THEIR TRIALS AND WILL BRING THEM FORTH IN TRIUMPH. Psalms 5:11-12 But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You; Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them; Let those also who love Your name Be joyful in You. For You, O LORD, will bless the righteous; With favor You will surround him as with a shield. HEAR THE WORD OF THE LORD CONCERNING THE UNGODLY: Psalms 1:4-6 The ungodly are not so, but are like the chaff which the wind drives away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the LORD knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
HOW MANY OF YOU ARE ALLOWING ME TO PLAN AND BUILD YOUR LIVES WITH ETERNITY IN VIEW? SOME OF YOU DO NOT REALLY UNDERSTAND OR CONSIDER THAT BEYOND THIS LIFE (AFTER DEATH) THERE ARE YEARS AND YEARS WITHOUT NUMBER AHEAD OF YOU. YOU MAKE THE DECISION WHETHER THERE WILL BE YEARS OF JOY OR SUFFERING, OR BLESSINGS AND CURSINGS THAT WILL AWAIT YOU. IF YOU CANNOT SEE THE FRUITFULNESS OF YOUR LIFE, NOW IS THE TIME TO ELECT CHRIST AS THE LORD AND MASTER OF YOUR LIFE. WHILE YOU HAVE BREATH, THERE STILL IS TIME TO LAY-UP TREASURES IN HEAVEN AND DO THE WORKS YOU ARE CALLED TO DO ON EARTH.
Psalms 91:1-2 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” THAT “SECRET PLACE” IS ONLY REACHED BY TOTALLY TURNING YOUR LIFE OVER TO ME. I WILL LEAD YOU INTO ALL TRUTH, ORDAIN YOUR PATH, AND BRING YOU SAFELY INTO MY KINGDOM. IF YOU SURRENDER YOUR LIFE TO ME YOU WILL NO LONGER BE THE NUMBER ONE GOD IN YOUR OWN LIFE AND I WILL HELP YOU CHANGE YOUR VALUES AND TEACH YOU TO LAY UP ETERNAL TREASURE. MY PEACE AND JOY WILL RULE YOUR LIFE. YOU WILL HAVE NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT WHEN YOU ARE TOTALLY GIVEN TO ME AND COVERED BY MY DIVINE PRESENCE. Psalm 27:1 The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?
DOES MY SPIRIT BEAR WITNESS WITH YOUR SPIRIT THAT YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD? YOU CAN KNOW FOR SURE! 2Peter 1:3-11 As His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your calling and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble; for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
