So does He?

I, even I, am the one who wipes out your transgressions for My own sake, And I will not remember your sins.
Isaiah 43:25 NASB

“You are altogether beautiful, my darling, And there is no blemish in you.
Song of Solomon 4:7 NASB

It’s time we do away with the ignorance of our sinful flesh, it’s time you wake up to your True Identity my brothers and sisters.

But you are A chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession , so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; for you once were not a people , but now you are the people of God ; you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy .
1 Peter 2:9‭-‬10 NASB

Stop claiming your sin (flesh) as you!

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.
2 Corinthians 5:17 NASB

For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace, because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so, and those who are in the flesh cannot please God. 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.
Romans 8:6‭-‬9 NASB

So I ask, does He live in you?

What shall we Do? 

What will we do in times like this? 

Are you seated in Christ? 

Have you been born again? 

Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth.

Colossians 3:1‭-‬2 NASB

Our instructions are clear. 

My son, do not forget my teaching, But let your heart keep my commandments; For length of days and years of life And peace they will add to you. Do not let kindness and truth leave you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good repute In the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your body And refreshment to your bones.

Proverbs 3:1‭-‬8 NASB

Lastly, hold firm to the Truth. 

These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.”

John 16:33 NASB

Jesus is the cure

Do you have those days when you wake before your body says you’re ready? The dogs are going non stop, and the devil is right there just waiting to ruin the rest of your day? This morning as I cleaned up puppy pee for the 5th time within an hour I grumbled not so nice thoughts about this 8 week old puppy. Turned on my phone clicked on Facebook and read “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation” then I read a post about addiction and how an addict struggles every day for the rest of their life. Talk about a sweet reminder from my Daddy about who I am and where I’ve come from.

I left a comment on the post and in not so many words said Jesus is the cure from addiction.

Do you believe that? That Jesus is the cure? That our grumbling can be cured? Scripture says to do everything without complaining, and I know that if there is a command to do something, I CAN do it with Christ. So He is the cure. But how is this even possible? Well when I took out my bible a card from my precious Kayla fell out and it has Philippians 4:8 on it “ Whatever is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things.”

Our thoughts will manifest. We have to submit every thought to Christ. If it does NOT line up with Jesus Christ than WE must cast it down. That’s right folks, WE MUST CAST IT DOWN. God will give us the weapon of His word to do so but it must first begin with us desiring to cast it down.

Many times we get caught up in the “whining” that we just wallow in it. I know you know what I’m talking about. Man is that pit so easy to fall into….because it’s a hidden pit isn’t it? One that hides within our minds. One that no one else can even see to help guide us out. This is why it is SO vital that we have the word hidden within our hearts so that we won’t sin against the Lord.

Many people today are so addicted to sermons and devotionals that they don’t know the Word for themselves. They are unprepared for the war that they are in. They are always seeking for someone else to explain it to them. Friends, this has got to stop. YOU need to be the WISE virgin in the parable of the 10 virgins (see Matthew 25:1-13). We are told that NO temptation is too great for us, that God has prepared a way out. Then why do so many of us fall into temptation? Because we do not KNOW HIS WORD. We know mans words. Man interpretation of HIS Word. (ps. JESUS IS THE WORD…many of you do not know JESUS)

My challenge to you is still the same as it was before. FAST from ALL other teachings and stick to the Word and the Spirit to teach you. Stop leaning on the teachings of another….whether you realize this or not….you are addicted to the mixed wine being poured out. Seek truth. You have the mind of Christ if you are a new creation, believe Him and know He will give you all wisdom.
