Who has bewitched you?

2 Corinthians 5:7 NASB

for we walk by faith, not by sight-

What does this mean? It means I walk by Faith that I am no longer my sinful nature, even though my sight shows me that I am still in my flesh my Faith in what the scriptures say to be true trumps what I see, feel, and even think. Romans 7 we see the infamous battle Paul has within himself. This is one that occurs until you and I graduate past this lie and begin to be Romans 8. My favorite verse in Romans 8 is verse 9.

Romans 8:9 NASB

However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him.

“However” however is used to show you and I that what is about to be said erases all the possibilities that was just written. Paul says however YOU are not in the flesh. Yet so many of YOU continue to bind yourselves to your flesh. You are hardening your hearts to God when you do this. YOU are NOT your sinful nature, even if you feel like you are. Jesus Christ became sin and nailed ALL SIN to the cross 2000+ years ago. Today satan has bamboozled all of us into thinking He didn’t actually free us. Paul said to the Galatians “who has bewitched you?” I ask you to check yourselves and see if Christ is in you and if He is than ask yourself “who has bewitched me?” The answer is anyone who has convinced you that you are STILL a sinner. Bc my friend if the Almighty God lives in you, you CANNOT be a sinner. It’s impossible. The children of the devil are being revealed, question is who will you believe? Who do you claim as your Father? Bc there are two.

1 John 3:4-10 NASB

Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness. You know that He appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin. No one who abides in Him sins; no one who sins has seen Him or knows Him. Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous; the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil. No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother.

A perfect person is One with Christ

A perfect person is One with Christ.

John 17:22-23 NASB

The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one;  I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me.

Remember the flesh profits nothing. We don’t appraise the things of the flesh but that of the Spirit and bc of that those born again are perfect.

1 John 4:15-17 NASB

Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. By this, love is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment; because as He is, so also are we in this world.

Because as He is, so also are we in this world.

We as born again children have to be careful what we claim as US, we are not our flesh.

Romans 8:9-10 NASB

However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him. If Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness.

John 3:6 NASB

That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

Why does this matter?

Matthew 12:37 NASB

For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”

John 9:31 NASB

We know that God does not hear sinners; but if anyone is God-fearing and does His will, He hears him.

Stop claiming to be sinners. If you have been baptized in water and Spirit your old self HAS died.

Romans 6:3-7 NASB

Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death? Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. For if we have become united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old self was crucified with Him, in order that our body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin; for he who has died is freed from sin.

Many are afraid to accept this and use these texts to keep ahold of their sinful nature.

1 John 1:8, 10 NASB

If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is not in us.

Forgetting that 1 John continues, and refuses to see these following text that was in the middle of these two texts.

1 John 1:9 NASB

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Remember we have to repent of our old thinking we have to admit as carnal (flesh) we were sinners. Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil, which is death, sin. Many refused to believe Jesus when He told them they needed to be freed from sin.

John 8:31-33 NASB

So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine;  and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”  They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never yet been enslaved to anyone; how is it that You say, ‘You will become free’?”

What I want you to see is Jesus spoke this to the Jews “who HAD believed Him. Just like today many believe Jesus but refuse to continue in HIS Words of freedom. They WANT to stay in their sin.

When Jesus returns He is not going to then clean you from your sins, He already did that at the cross.

Hebrews 9:28 NASB

so Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him.

Know who you truly are!

Matthew 5:48 NASB

Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

Jesus is God, do you believe this?

Exodus 14:13-14 NASB

But Moses said to the people, “Do not fear! Stand by and see the salvation of the Lord which He will accomplish for you today; for the Egyptians whom you have seen today, you will never see them again forever. The Lord will fight for you while you keep silent.”

Acts 4:12 NASB

And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.”

Hebrews 13:8 NASB

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

Hebrews 1:3 NASB

And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,

Jesus is the True God. He has explained the Father and Lord in the OT. Those before him did not. Only in Jesus is the Father truly revealed. Do you believe this? Because many of you do not. If Jesus didn’t do it, neither did the Father.

When we truly get this, everything we ever knew changes and we begin to truly see God’s beauty. His true Lovingkindness and compassion. We no longer accuse Him of being a murderer and attribute those acts to the one who has been a murderer from the beginning. God IS Love and there is no LOVE in murder.

Satan’s sole desire has always been to be worshipped as God. Today he is. We call God a murderer not acknowledging that the God we are talking about is actually Satan. This is why Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil.

Many ask when they hear this truth “Why would Satan kill all his people in the flood?” The answer is simple to cause the greatest deception of all time, by calling God a murderer. Which is what happens when we say God destroyed man kind, and refuse to see Jesus as the Truth and believe HIM when He said Satan has been a murderer from the beginning, that NO ONE has seen the Father but Him and that He only does what the Father does. Jesus is God, He displayed the EXACT Nature of GOD. EXACT is EXACT. Everyone before Him was a thief and a robber. Trust Jesus He is the Word of God. The scriptures are just that scriptures, Jesus is the Word. Jesus IS God.

1 John 5:19-20 NASB

We know that we are of God, and that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one. And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.

Blessed or cursed?

Genesis 12:1-3 NASB

Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go forth from your country, And from your relatives And from your father’s house, To the land which I will show you; And I will make you a great nation, And I will bless you, And make your name great; And so you shall be a blessing; And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.”

Galatians 3:13 NASB

Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us-for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on  a  tree “-

Colossians 2:13-14 NASB

When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our transgressions, having canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against us, which was hostile to us; and He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.

Romans 6:3-7 NASB

Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death? Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. For if we have become united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old self was crucified with Him, in order that our body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin; for he who has died is freed from sin.

Romans 5:18 NASB

So then as through one transgression there resulted condemnation to all men, even so through one act of righteousness there resulted justification of life to all men.

Are you still dead in your sins, hanging on the cross? Or have you been born again alive IN Christ?

Deuteronomy 30:15 NASB

“See, I have set before you today life and prosperity, and death and adversity;

Test yourselves

1 Peter 1:3-9 NASB

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. In this you greatly rejoice, even though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been distressed by various trials, so that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ; and though you have not seen Him, you love Him, and though you do not see Him now, but believe in Him, you greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, obtaining as the outcome of your faith the salvation of your souls.

Read this carefully, IF NECESSARY, you have been distressed by various trials. I thought about this last night. I asked ok what is a human explanation  for “trial”. You have a prosecutor, defendant, and a judge. One is accusing you, which would be Satan. He is accusing you of sin, carnality, that you are not in fact the Son of God. This causes distress, UNTIL you rightly remember who defends you and that YOUR judgment has already been made. Through Jesus Christ YOU have been justified to LIFE, which means death aka sin is NOT in you, the YOU that is born again. Satan has NOTHING in you. He is a liar. You have been redeemed.

1 John 5:18 NASB

We know that no one who is born of God sins; but He who was born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him.

THE EVIL ONE DOES NOT TOUCH HIM.

2 Corinthians 13:5 NASB

Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you-unless indeed you fail the test?

Jesus is not a killer

image

Romans 6:3 NASB

Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death?

Acts 10:48 NASB

And he ordered them to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Then they asked him to stay on for a few days.

Matthew 28:19 NASB

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,

Revelation 22:13 NASB

I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”

JESUS IS THE ONLY TRUE GOD.

Isaiah 9:6 NASB

For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.

AND IF THE ONLY TRUE GOD, AND JESUS IS NOT A KILLER, THEN THE BELIEF THAT GOD KILLS IS ABSURD. THIS SHATTERS WHAT YOU’VE BEEN TAUGHT. WHAT YOU ARE BEING TAUGHT.
Jesus said in John 10:10 NASB

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.

Hebrews 13:8 NASB

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

What do you believe? Who do you believe? Man or God?

the one who practices sin is of the devil

Matthew 7:15, 21-23 NASB

“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.  “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.  Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’  And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me , you who practice lawlessness .’

1 John 3:4 NASB

Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness.

SIN is LAWLESSNESS!

SO I ask (again) are you SURE you want to hold onto the claim that even though you believe in Jesus as your savior, you’re STILL a sinner unable to be free from sin until your body of flesh leaves this earth?

1 John 3:5-10 NASB

You know that He appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin. No one who abides in Him sins; no one who sins has seen Him or knows Him. Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous; the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil. No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother.

Tree of Life, or Tree of good and evil….

So the other day at study we were shown two different takes on the same story. When David went against God’s order and took a census of Israel. These accounts are in 2 Samuel 24 and 1 Chronicles 21. I beg of you to go read these. I’ll simply show the first verse in each to God willing, reveal to you the mixed descriptions.

2 Samuel 24:1 NASB

Now again the anger of the Lord burned against Israel, and it incited David against them to say, “Go, number Israel and Judah.”

1 Chronicles 21:1 NASB

Then Satan stood up against Israel and moved David to number Israel.

Friends, there is an Almighty God, His name is Jesus. He is GOOD, ALL the time, HE IS LIFE. (Tree of LIFE)

image

Then there is a god of this world. He comes disguised as light, and darkness. (Tree of good and evil.)

2 Corinthians 4:3-4 NASB

And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

We are told the Way is narrow and not many find it. But the path that leads to destruction is broad.

Matthew 7:21-23 NASB

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.  Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’  And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from M e , you who practice lawlessness .’

I beg you to cast down everything that does NOT line up to the character of Jesus. Repent of your unbelief in a God that is and was and always will be GOOD.

John 6:40 NASB

For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him will have eternal life, and I Myself will raise him up on the last day.”

The days are numbered. I pray your ears hear what He has to say, and your heart receives His truth. Whatever you bind on earth, you will bind in heaven. I pray that you bind a God that gives LIFE.

Stop believing the Devil

Yesterday I read a blog from someone who is living abroad, building up the church. It’s mostly about their new life over there getting used to the customs, quite entertaining. Until I read those words that just make my blood boil, “I’ll never be perfect.” As you can imagine I stopped reading and began praying for them, and all they come in contact with. Last night at study we began with John 17, where Jesus is praying for us. God knew I needed to get this off my chest and would need some Words from Him so I didn’t spend the entire blog speaking my own words.

The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; I in them and you in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me. John 17:22,23

Now I ask you, how can we show them the Father was indeed IN Jesus, if we are NOT IN Jesus? How can we be IN Christ unless we are perfect? Friends, we have got to throw away the devils doctrine and wake up to what Jesus said….IS SAYING to US today. WAKE UP O’Sleeper! The devil has deceived us with the Word of God and is continuing to deceive millions of people who believe they are saved, yet proudly talk about how worthless and sinful they are….WHAT??? How can God who is PERFECT dwell within YOU and you NOT be perfect?

No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he CANNOT sin, because he is born of God. 1 John 3:9

Perfect is to be WITHOUT SIN! Knowing whom you are IN Christ, we are ONE with Christ, not a separated part of Him. We are in Him and He is in Us…..if you believe that He truly took your sins to the grave, then you are without SIN. The ONLY sin left is UNBELIEF. Which is exactly what kept the Israelites from entering the Promise Land, see Hebrews 3:19. Which is why BELIEF is so important to salvation. Believing every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God, which is The Lord Jesus Christ.

I truly cannot even tell you how frustrated I am to hear these lies taught to my brothers and sisters. Their birthright is being stolen, just as Satan stole it from Adam, he is yet again stealing it from the Children of God.

Jesus came to buy back our birthright, stop allowing the devil to deceive you. Read the Word of God and believe that you are FREE from sin. If you believe that Jesus truly did accomplish what He said He did on the cross.
