All we need is Jesus.
Your self will protest,
“but what about…?”
All we need is Jesus.
First He brings a Sword of the Spirit to cut away all that was before you invite him into your life, spirit and soul and body, and relationships. Then the Peace that surpasses all understanding will follow the sword, as you yield and follow the leading of the HOLY Spirit.
I just heard a powerful transformation story from a man who was raped repeatedly as a child that resulted in him, “hating God because he didn’t help me; then I hated everyone.” This is the lie we believe when we have been wounded, hurt, scarred as a child, broken, and give up believing God loves us, because of the lie of the evil one from the pit of hell. We either turn the anger and rage against others: violence and hate crimes, or we turn the anger and rage inside: depression, anxiety, panic attacks, ptsd, fear; or both: drug, numb and distract to keep it at bay.
Jesus invites us ALL, right where you are, no matter how broken, fallen, guilty, shame-filled or feeling condemned, to come to Christ and be transformed by His Blood, His Testimony, His Cross of death to life. This is overcoming Power and Presence to transform, not just good information or principles of the world to follow to have a nice day or be a better person.
Christ is the resurrection Power to be reborn into the image and likeness of God through Jesus, leaving the image and likeness of fallen Adam in the dust, in the ashes of satan whom the “seed of the woman crushed because he bruised our heels” the place of God’s fiery feet on the earth. Only Jesus can restore the fallen world systems of earth to new heavens and new earth where righteousness dwells.
Allow the Defining Moment of history that occurred in the fullness of time to become real in you, right now, right here: ask Jesus to come and forgive, redeem, save, heal, deliver, and set free for the Holy Spirit and fire to transform, and conform you to the image of Christ in the likeness of God. The same Spirit that rose Jesus from grave will come in you to resurrect Christ in you, the hope of glory, the substance and assurance of all that is in Christ, in you, now and forever.
We take it by faith through grace. “Only believe, do not fear” “It is God’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom”
We deny our self, pick up our own cross, the things we have been bearing that no human can bear, and follow Jesus to The Cross that only he could bear, die to fallen Adam, bury the past, and resurrect WITH Christ and be led by His Spirit as a new creature, born of God of Living Water and Spirit of God from the Throne.
