The Son Has Already Made you Free

Posted By at Wednesday, February 16, 2011

Jesus was anointed to preach the message of FREEDOM

Luke 4.18-19 AMP The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me [the Anointed One, the Messiah] to preach the good news (the Gospel) to the poor; He has sent Me to announce release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to send forth as delivered those who are oppressed [who are downtrodden, bruised, crushed, and broken down by calamity],

Luke 4:19 To proclaim the accepted and acceptable year of the Lord [the day when salvation and the free favors of God profusely abound.

He told the people of His day that His Words would make them FREE. And it’s still the same today. The people had been so blinded by religion that they didn’t even know they were in bondage.

John 8:32 And you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.

36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

Jesus was sent to preach and teach the MESSAGE OF FREEDOM that God had promised to Abraham all those years ago, so today if you want to accept it you can be FREE, because if you are in Christ you are Abraham’s seed and heirs according to the promise.

Galatians 3.29 And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise

Enjoy a great freedom week!

The Law of the Boomerang

Posted By at Wednesday, February 09, 2011

Here in Australia the Aborigines have a weapon called the Boomerang. The boomerang is a curved piece of wood that when thrown it will come back to the thrower again.

In the Bible Jesus lays down a general principle for dealing with people. We’re not to deal with others as others deal with us, but we’re to deal with them, as we would like them to deal with us.

Matthew 7:12 In everything, do to others what you would have them do to you.

This is how Christians should live.

This is known as the golden rule or the law of the boomerang!

It doesn’t simply forbid malice and revenge, cheating and deceit.

It does much more.

It prevents the necessity of laying down endless little rules for our conduct in specific cases.

It sweeps the whole debatable ground with one mighty principle.

It shows us a balance and measure, by which everyone may see at once how they should act.

Is there something we wouldn’t like our neighbour to do to us? Then let’s always try to remember, that this is the thing we ought not to do to him.

Is there a thing we would like our neighbour to do to us? Then this is the very thing we ought to do to him.

Act as if.

The better the acting; the better the outcome.

Get into it like a child would play. Make it real. It's all about the state and the intent.

Don't limit your intent to narrow possibilities.

A wider intent with infinite potential married to it can give you even better options that you may not have initially considered but would be glad to experience.

Enjoy a great winning week!

Do You Hear!

Posted By at Wednesday, February 02, 2011

Isa 50.4 The Lord GOD has given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him who is weary. He awakens Me morning by morning, He awakens My ear to HEAR as the learned.

There are times when you really need to HEAR from God such as:

HEAR FROM GOD Before making any significant changes in your life.

Isa 30.21 Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, ‘This is the way, walk in it,’ Whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left.

It is always God’s prerogative to tell you where to go and what to do not yours. God can speak to you through and old donkey or even a burning bush if you are willing to listen and hear from Him.

HEAR FROM GOD Before responding to others. Don’t give your time, your money, your strength, your name, or your love to the wrong things or people. God knows the end from the beginning so HEAR from Him.

1 Kings 3.9 Solomon said Therefore give to Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people, that I may discern between good and evil. For who is able to judge this great people of Yours?

HEAR FROM GOD Before sharing your ideas or dreams with others because the wrong people will either scorn or sabotage them. The devil uses people to knock you off track.

You must be able to hear from God every day of your life, it is just that important.

Enjoy a great week HEARING FROM GOD!
