Jesus FIXED it!
I want to bring to your attention that our Father used His Son Jesus to fix the problem between us. We were sinners, and imperfect, and He cannot look upon sin. If He does, that person will die. He tried to warn us back in the Garden that if we sin, we have to die. He can't help that fact. He is absolute love and absolute truth.
When we're sinning, we're lying to ourselves, to our family, and to our God. We cannot fool God and we know we really can't pull off the masquerade of how great we are, but we try it anyway, heaping more problems on our lives. We get jealous of others, fearful of the consequences of our sins, and afraid that somebody else will get things that we won't.
We murder and steal to try to fix things that have gone wrong in our lives instead of confessing and making it right from the beginning. We do that because by the very first sin, Adam and Eve became the children of Satan and the Bible says he is the father of all lies.
But what can we DO about this? Nothing, God did it all already. He knew there was no way we could fix this problem, it required death and that we in our fallen state could not pay the price with our own deaths to save the world. Only a pure and willing soul could give His life for a world that didn't deserve it, and break the hold Satan had on mankind.
So Jesus fulfilled the requirement. He took upon His body the beating and chastisement that we deserve. His beating was for our healing. One stripe on his back for every ailment (physical and mental) known to man. He took upon His body on the cross, every single bad thought, action and word that YOU and I and every other person has ever, and will ever do.
It's PERSONAL, baby! We like to think we have some distance from this, we really get uncomfortable when we admit it was "I" that Christ died for. We think He had to do it because there are murderers and child molesters and people who cheat and steal out there, but we aren't that bad!
Wrong! Even if you were the only person living on this earth, Jesus would have had to go to the cross to save YOUR butt from an eternity of burning, clawing, ripping flesh and agony of wailing! Because that is what was prepared for sinners and we were sinners. Period.
I guarantee you have enough vile thoughts and anger, prejudice, lust and negligence to do good in you, to crush the heart of our savior.
But what now? Jesus said "IT IS FINISHED". WHAT was finished? The reconciliation of man to God. It means, God can now look upon His SON Jesus and call us clean and perfect as He is perfect. We are washed in His blood. We can also now rise above what Satan wants, by making the choice to follow God's Word.
He didn't leave us defenseless, He empowered us through His blood, His Word and the Holy Spirit that dwells with believers, so that whatsoever we ask in Jesus' name SHALL be done if we believe it.
Whatever we speak in our lives is done. Whatever we need is supplied, for God's sake and for the purpose of our assignment here on earth. BE CAREFUL that your words speak only what God has said about us, and what you WANT in your life. Don't speak about sickness, don't name your sicknesses, rebuke them! Speak life. Don't speak about poverty, rebuke the destroyer and repeat out loud the scriptures that say God has given you all things!
We have been adopted into God's family and we are no longer under the sentence of death. We are no longer Satan's children, and our very DNA has been changed! Did you know that DNA changes in our bodies? We have been transformed and all our sicknesses will disappear, even the ones that were handed down through our genes!
God's Word and the name of Jesus, the blood He shed, the beatings He took for our sake, have changed everything we can expect in this life. WE CAN EVEN EXPECT THAT WE WILL NOT DIE. Jesus said it! He said whosoever keeps His words WILL NOT DIE. Two men have already qualified in that area. Enoch and Elijah.
You can do it too. Learn God's ways and do what He says!
