Our God is mighty in battle! Amen? Amidst the confusion, chaos and terrible disasters happening this year, we have entered Lent and I want to start a new series of looking into the parables of Jesus which talk about the kingdom of heaven; I want to remind us of what we are to seek first.
I believe that the louder the noise gets, the more we need to keep our eyes on Jesus only (Keep Your Eyes On Jesus)! His blood has been shed for the church, His bride, to enable us to serve Him without fear. The Spirit, the water and the blood are witnesses of the Son and by His grace, those who receive it will see Him and the kingdom He is building more clearly. When you get still before the Lord after going through the parables and raise your hands to worship in awe and wonder of who God is, then you know you have the right Spirit.
We’re starting soon with the parable of the wheat and the tares! Stay tuned!
What if you went to court for a crime you committed and were sentenced to punishment, even to death? Are you wondering what this question has to do with being blessed and happy?
Just yesterday I had a vision where Jesus carried me up the stairs to a mountain summit. The accuser appeared on the other side and started heaping accusations against me.
κατάκριμα (katákrima) = (from katá, “down, according to,” and kríma, “the results of judgment”); thus, the exact sentence of condemnation handed down after due process of establishing guilt.*
Katakrima. The enemy was trying to make me receive justpunishment. But Jesus hid me behind His back and I remember just burying my face into His back and holding tight onto His clothes.
You walk according to the live-giving works of the Spirit now, not the dead works of your own flesh. The enemy cannot sentence you to eternal damnation as long as you remain in Jesus Christ. Is this not incredibly good?
If you do not see yourself as happy and blessed still, I do not know what else can make you truly happy! I mean it! I need to remind myself constantly about this, too!
Just look at His beauty. Behold His glory and remain there with a grateful, praising heart. And you will find yourself in a state of peaceful happiness.
