if You find yourself going over your faults or your successes its nice to remind yourself that Jesus blood is the ONLY rightousness that there is. Your works or faults don’t come into yoru right standing with God If they did you could be justified by the law or your won works. The word clearly says that by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. God judged sin in the flesh. That was the part of man that betrayed God in the garden. Relying on Jesus is the only rightousness. Its seperate from you. You can’t get in there to muck it up or make it worse. It’s the only rightstanding with God. Thats comforting.
The love of God has been shed abroad in our hearts by the holy spirit. We can “tune” that love in by faith and walk in him. This keeps us safe from darkness. The god of this world is a angel. I looked up angel in the Greek and one of the roots it comes from is “reflector”. He reflects light. You know like “I can see that”, or this is the truth I see. Etc etc. So he is constantly broadcasting pictures, feelings, thoughts and spiritual understanding that is light but not the true light. This explains why people believe evolution and other silly ideas. The big trick of this spiritual governor is to get us offended with another, thus separating us from love and that means separation from God who IS love. Love is light and love believes all things. The God of this world blinds the mind of those who don’t believe (since they don’t love). The light came into the world and the darkness comprehendeth it not. When we walk out of love we this we have sin, since we are walking outside of God who is love. Our lens on reality which is our heart then becomes a little darker and we see everything through that darkness. “now we see through a glass darkly” Well darkness leads to more darkness and then we will pretty much believe any old thing. The blood of Christ can cleanse us of that sin. Then we can see right in love. The love of God mixed with his word gives us light and starts cleaning up our heart. Jesus commanded us to make our HOME in his love. This leads us to psalm 91 which is the shelter (home) of the most high. This keeps you “safe from the strife of tongues”. So we can escape all the talking from the darkness. We then walk in the light as he is in the light.
The kingdom of God is here now. When a king gives a decree its the law. Its all operating. like gravity or the laws of thermodynamics. As is your faith it is being done to you right now. Well all of Gods decrees are working. For us they become active when we believe. We act on the word with faith and patience. Eventually our reality changes. Either we believe the new government based on faith and Gods limitless power or we are believing our physical senses and our canal mind. Because its all ready done is why Jesus sat down waiting for his enemies to be his footstool. He sowed his life and then he sat down. He paid for your peace, your sins, your healing. When we believe we enter into what he has done. He’s all ready accomplished your salvation, he has all ready made you well and prosperous. All this is static and waiting for us in its completed form. It all starts with righteousness, you can have any part of him without him washing your feet. For instance the Bible says that righteousness has come upon all men. Do all have it? No. Are all healed? No, But it is there for them. The lord paid for every sickness and sin. He could not have left anything un-paid for. The lord showed me a wall plate that has power in it. Its always on just waiting for someone to plug in. How can you put this work for you? Is poverty a problem? study how Christ was made a curse for you and that poverty is under the curse. Know the promises for prosperity. Once you believe them then that is law for you. All creation will have to bow to God sword based the death of his son for you. Out of a good mans heart good things come to pass and out of a evil mans heart evil things come to pass. Get Gods words in there. We are in a glory economy now. Glory means weight. Give God’s word weight. Everything was made by Gods word for God’s word. Get your heart in agreement with heaven. Whatever you lock is locked and whatever you unlock is unlocked. Take every thought captive to the intimacy that you have with Gods word. That thought kingdom is working all the time, take dominion over it , be diligent and make the word of God rule there. Only you can make it work. The current governor is persistent always talking and putting out his spirit to destroy. Gods kingdom is voluntary. Jesus said the way to life is vigorous and demands all your attention. The kingdom of God is in your heart and come through his words. once you believe for it the other current government has to move aside and allow heavens provision in. Whatever measure you believe for it will be measured back to you. Another example, in the area of righteousness. he tasted death for everyman, Righteousness has come upon all men, and the effect of righteousness is peace. Do you have peace? If not you can meditate on Gods word until you believe it. In this case meditate or study righteousness. When you believe you have it then you WILL experience peace. Since Gods word is law it would be impossible for you not to have that peace. Thats the kingdom. Everything God said is working now. It says in Hebrews only we who believe God can enter. How does faith come? faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. We can stand on the words of God instead of present reality or reasoning. Gods word goes beyond reasoning, God can do ANYTHING. It says he can do exceedingly above all we can ask or think ACCORDING to the power that works with in us? what is God’s power? The word says I am not ashamed of the good news of Christ for it is the power of God to them that believe. So its power released by faith. Imagine a diplomat in another country. Even though the laws of the county he is in say one thing his country says another. His position as a diplomat gives him immunity from those laws. For instance the law of this world is the law of life in the flesh. Being motivated by the want of the eyes, the want of the flesh and the pride of life. The law of sin and death is active. However you as a citizen of heaven can live free from the law of sin and death by activating the law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus. You can be free from your old man. As the bible says it those that belong to Christ have crucified there flesh and the wants and affections there of. Not by your effort but by living with Christ by faith. Your a branch not the vine. Without him you can’t do a thing. His power comes into your life through faith and stops your flesh. You can demonstrate this in a spot check way by trusting Christ the next time you get mad of the next time you want to overeat or watch too much tv. Christs power will be there and he will make you want to do his will and then enable you to do it. God wants us to live in union with Christ like this all the time. He grows more and more in you as you trust him. In this way you become conformed to the image of his dear son. All that power is inside that socket. His spirit, blood and his word is just sitting there waiting for you to plug in by faith.
