Sweet Holy Spirit🕊 we acknowledge You. You are the Governor of our Father’s Kingdom. Reveal The King’s Mind to us. Thanks Friend. In Jesus name we are here.
Let me begin with a poser;
How many of us are 100 % sure we’ll make heaven if Jesus were to show up today??
Do we have an undeniable assurance??
I was teaching a class at a time, and told them you should know whether you’re for heaven or not. Not you praying and hoping you’ll make it. Our walk in the Kingdom was not designed to be a guess walk. You are supposed to be sure. It’s a walk of faith!
Let’s look at a few scriptures to see the King’s Perspective on this
John 5: 24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; *but is passed from death unto life.*
1John 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: *but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him*; for we shall see him as he is.
John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; *that where I am, there ye may be also.*
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that *whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.*
1John 3:14 *We know that we have passed from death unto life*, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.
Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9 *Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.*
These scriptures remove doubt from our hope of eternal life. But the problem today is ;
Many do not have this assurance! And the cause of this is simple;
Consciousness of Sin
And this is due to a lack of understanding of Christ’s provision for us
Let’s see these together👇
Ephesians 1:7 In whom *we have* redemption through his blood, *the forgiveness of sins,* according to the riches of his grace;
We have….., not trying to get
Romans 5:10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, *being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life*.
His life saves us. His death reconciled us, now we have His resurrection life daily saving us
Romans 8:1 There is therefore *now no condemnation* to them which are in Christ Jesus,
Now, this scripture is interesting! Why?…
You don’t tell a man who has done nothing wrong that he’s not condemned. There’s no need for that, he knows that already. However, if a man has failed at a point and you tell him you are not condemning him, then it makes sense
2 Corinthians 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; *that we might be made the righteousness of God* in him.
You are now the righteousness of God. And He’s *not* sending His righteousness to hell!
It’s not possible for you to be cast away, you have been redeemed by His precious blood!
Romans 5:15 But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. 16 And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification.
Speaking of our salvation through His grace👆
And He also said;
1 John 2: 1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: 2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. 12 I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake.
He knows we are in the flesh, the body, and liable to miss it at one point or the other, therefore, He made this👆provision. You know why??
Hebrews 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
Because of this, He now tells us in verse 16👇
Hebrews 4: 16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
Remember _the Prodigal son_?? He turned against his father
The father’s love was so great, He was looking out for him. While the son was busy reciting his “sorry-message”, the Father was making plans of restoration and celebration. He shows us how much he wants us. Jesus left 99 to look for 1 sheep that got lost
In John 8:3-11,
He told an adulterous woman caught in the act, I don’t condemn you, go and sin no more
Many of us want to be right with God, but we can only walk in such reality of freedom from sin if:
you know that He is not mad at you. Friend, God is not mad at you, He loves you.
You are not a sinner but a son if you’ve put your faith in Him. Whenever you miss it, just pause and follow Gal. 5:16. Agree with Him you missed it, ask for His help and MOVE ON!
Sorry, God doesn’t keep a record of your sins, you are blood-washed in His sight.
Galatians 5:16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
If the thought comes back to you, reply with this👇
Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus,
I counsel you, get scriptures that speak of your righteousness in Him, especially in the Epistles, it’ll help you.
The Lord bless you.
