What God Did

Rom 8:3

3 For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh,

NASB

The law on its own is not weak, as a matter of fact if it were possible to keep the law accurately; there would be salvation for us because of that. The basic problem with the law was that its requirements were in the flesh, the law walked with the flesh and because of the weakness of the flesh the law could not bring to mankind what God intended.

The law was unable to save us because we were unable to keep the law in its entirety and this was because we all share a sinful weak nature. God solved this problem by giving Jesus as the ultimate sacrifice for sin so that we would not have to suffer again the consequences of breaking the law when we accept Him. He did this because of His great love for us.

Rom 8:2

For the law of the Spirit of life [which is] in Christ Jesus [the law of our new being] has freed me from the law of sin and of death.

AMP

When you were born into this world you were born with a law of sin and death that operated through (and because of) the flesh, that is the reason why you naturally sinned and no one had to teach you how to commit essential sins (like lying etc.). The law of life now operates in you through the Spirit of Christ(the Holy Spirit) that dwells in you because you are born again by believing in Christ Jesus and accepting Him into your life as your Lord and personal savior.

One of the attributes of the law of sin and death is that it causes you to sin and sin leads to death. This law dwells in your sinful flesh but when you are born again you have the ability to now walk in the spirit and not in the flesh.

Gal 5:16-18

16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

KJV

Ps 113:1-3

Praise, O servants of the Lord,

Praise the name of the Lord!

2 Blessed be the name of the Lord

From this time forth and forevermore!

3 From the rising of the sun to its going down

The Lord's name is to be praised.

NKJV

When I think of all God has done for us. That today we, who were far away, without God and without hope, can be called sons of the most high God; how that he has called us out of darkness into His light, and given u power over all the powers of the enemy. My soul can only bless His name for His goodness and kindness.

There is none who can show you as much love as the lord. There is none who can be so faithful and true. If have never had an encounter with the lord. He stands at the door of your hear and knocks. It is your prerogative to either let Him in which will be the best choice you’ll ever maker or loose this chance.

The name of the lord is to be praised from generation to generation; He is good at all times.

Go into today letting His praises continually be on your lips

LET THERE BE LIGHT

Gen 1:3-5

And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning — the first day.

NIV

God said it and there was light. God is the author of all good things. This God who is so powerful is on your side and He is interested in your future. He is more interested in your future than you. He has a plan for you that’s greater and better than your plans.

All you need to do to start living in the reality of His power and grace is for you to submit yourself totally to Him. Let His kingdom come in your world by establishing His righteousness in your life and in your world.

Go into today with the assurance that you are a creator of Good things just like your father who is in heaven

Ps 91:2-3

2 I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust!

3 For [then] He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence.

AMP

There comes a time when you need to say to yourself that the lord and He alone is your refuge and your fortress. He is the one who protects and preserves you from the world and from danger. These are times when you look around and see that a lot may be going wrong around you. When there may begin to come the temptation of asking why. You need to encourage yourself in the lord and remind yourself of the reality; that because you dwell in the secret place of the most high, you are under His protection and there is absolutely nothing that can happen to you without God’s permission, all that can happen to you will only turn out for your good and favor. God will not allow anything that will not be for your good.

Go into today with a solid knowing that the Lord God of the heavens and the earth is your shield and protector.

Ps 91:7-8

A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not come near you.

8 Only a spectator shall you be [yourself inaccessible in the secret place of the Most High] as you witness the reward of the wicked.

AMP

God has created you as an object of His mercy. You are more so when you dwell in His secret place. When you are in this place, even though evil things are happening everywhere because of the wickedness of the world, it will not come near you. You will be kept safe and secure by God’s mighty power.

You need to know that it is God’s desire to keep you always safe and happy, He wants the best for you. You get to receive this when you have constant fellowship with Him.

This is what it really means to dwell in the secret place of the most high; It means to have a solid father child relation with God who indeed wants to be your father. This can begin by asking Him to fill your heart with His Holy Spirit, and keeping a habit of praying in an atmosphere of God’s word. You need to devote time to prayer and the word of God.

Under God’s Protection

Ps 91:1
HE WHO w dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].
AMP

 
God who has all the power will be a shield to he who dwells in His secret place.
This is not a wishful thinking by a saint but a promise from God. And God NEVER fails on His promises. Heaven and earth may pass away but God’s word stands sure. And His word is that you will dwell under His unbeatable protection when you dwell in His secret place.
The secret place of God is the place where you and God meet. This is not a physical place but a spiritual one because God and you (the part of you God fellowships with) are spirits. The secret place is your place of personal fellowship and communion with your father in heaven. This is administered by the Holy Spirit who dwells in you. Those who have this will always enjoy God’s protection and power.
Go into today knowing that you have a secret place of fellowship with the most high. Let your day be filled with a constant conscious link of fellowship with your Father in Heaven.

God’s Basis for Judgment

image

Audio Version (click to listen or right click and select save link as to download

John 3:19

The [basis of the] judgment (indictment, the test by which men are judged, the ground for the sentence) lies in this: the Light has come into the world, and people have loved the darkness rather than and more than the Light, for their works (deeds) were evil.

AMP

I have always maintained some believes as a Christian, and this our bible verse only helps to buttress them. I have always believed that there are some people that are essentially evil, they love darkness, there is nothing you can do about it; they will always choose the dark over the light. I have always maintained that God is a just, and that God does not just select people based on how He feels but based on who they really are. God selected Jacob from HIS mother’s womb because God knew who Esau and Jacob were even before they were born. God knew this because He is the eternal I AM; he exists in the present, past and future all at the same time. This is also the basis for which judgment will come upon some. Because they saw the light and Chose to follow darkness. God who knows the choices that we would make before we were born decided to select and use us before we were born.

Going back to our study, Jesus says that people are judged because they loved darkness rather than light, and he says something most revealing here, he says because their deeds are evil. I would have thought that people’s deeds were evil because they love darkness, but I see here that they love darkness because their deeds are evil.

Examine your ways and see(decide) whose side you are on

God’s Power that works in you

AUDIO VERSION (Right click and ‘save link as’ to download)

Eph 3:20-21

20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

NIV

FURTHER STUDY: JOHN 15:1-16(click to read)

I believe we must have heard that all power belongs to God, all authority in heaven and on earth has been given unto Jesus. This means that all the right and authorization to exert any form of power is given unto Jesus. Because you are joined with Christ; a member of His body, you automatically tap into this power that He has. The more effectively joined to Christ you are, the more flow of His power you will have in your life.

I want you to think of a branch that is joined to a tree; that branch enjoys from the substance of the tree, the power and life with which that branch survives is drawn from the tree. If a portion of the part connecting the branch to the tree has been severed, then the branch begins to die out and suffer, it may not die completely if it has a wound, but the branch will be deficient of substance till its connection to the tree is healed. If for some reason a branch gets infected with a disease, it will affect the flow of power in that branch and it needs to get healed to regain its normal stature. We are branches and Jesus is the vine.

Some of the things that sever our link with Christ are iniquity, guilt, and unbelief. One of the major causative factors of spiritual disease is guilt (listen to the audio for more insight).

God wants to do so much for you and through you, so much more than you can ever imagine. God will do this through the power that is in you. You get this power by staying joined to Christ.

Remember Jesus said “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you”. John 15:7 KJV

The key to receiving more from God is having His power in your life, the key to this power is abiding in Christ, and the key to abiding in Christ is trusting in Him and obeying His word
