Spiritual Teenager

There is an awkwardness about you, in you. You feel like a teenager again as life is changing around you, as you change the life arond you. You feel things differently, you see things differently and you want to grab hold, but you resist just as the teenager does. Is it love or lust, is it both? Lust is desire to be with, to unite, love is to be present with, to merge into joyousness. It is ok to have both of these feelings towards Him. It is ok to see yourself united as one being, to desire more of Him. This love and understanding of an unconditional nature is truth of the purist form. You need not feel shame or guilt of these feelings. Just as you went through puberty as a human, spiritual puberty is a must. You need not fear this change, embrace who you are becoming. Just as you could not stop it in your human form, you not stop what God is doing with you in your spirit. Resistance to it prolongs to truth of your identity. The one spirit, the consciousness of your divine nature, is upon you. The kingdom is within you. You are as He is. You’re here to to awaken those( reproduce ) the manifestation of sons to His divinity, to their divinity. This season is the growth-spurt of understanding your truth, your true nature and as you mature you will be shown your purpose. Awaken sleepers, to your true identity, to the reconciliation of the Oneness, to wholeness and the completeness of God.

Devaluing and Demoting

   It has become the norm, our behavior has been putting less value each other and our actions are not very becoming. Looking even deeper, we are not valuing ourselves and seeing what our own worth is. So if we can’t even recognize our own worth how can we even begin to see value in others? 

   For me this journey has hurt a lot of people, friends and family alike, no one was safe. I was quick to mock, slander and make fun of you right to your face, all in the name of fun. I also blamed and accused those closest to me for my own lack and insecurities. After all my past screamed at me, you are nothing. Without getting to in-depth, I grew up being told and shown by many around me that I was less than, I was useless and I was unwanted. It continued on through life, from those closest to me, even authority figures. I let these individuals words and actions demote me, I let their perspective be my truth. I could not see past the deception that my own mind had anchored in and believed it was who I was and all that I would ever be. I took those lies as my truth and sat in that truth. 

   This may seem like it is a fairytale or a fabrication but it is real and is happening everyday. It continues on a vicious cycle from one person to the next. I passed it on just like a bad book that I proclaimed as a good one. I took my pain, my struggles and projected it on to all around me. I demoted them for my own self absorbed satisfaction. What is sad is that it was so ingrained, I didn’t even see it. It was taught and I observed it from so many sources that I couldn’t see anything but normalcy from it. It became who I was, it became my source of life, a lie. 

   Then came Jesus, no not the one in the book, the one in my now wife. I knew nothing of the love she showed, not just to me but to all around her. She showed up differently than most people. Even in times when those she loves came against her, belittled her and ostracized her, there she was loving them. She lead me to church, which is a whole different story, but in that building I met Jesus first hand ( the truth is I had already met him ). The blueprint of who He was in His human form was right there, on those pages for all to see. He tapped into the source, the Father and distributed love, an unconditional love that we can’t seem to get in our human experience. He was one with the Father and it showed, He showed up and it was clear to all those whom believed. I was a mind renewing moment for all who wanted to see past their own self images. It was mind blowing to those whom had been beaten down by others, by the law and by religion. It blows my mind still today, how could He just keep loving in-spite of all that came against Him and those whom turned their backs on Him? He was love, thats how! He was the source, He is doing what the Father is doing still today! He is the example, just like my wife was then and still is today. Love is powerful!

   I woke up at 3am this morning. God sitting bedside, talking to me about this very thing. I struggle with belief in myself, my worthiness. It shows itself in moments of trials and tribulations. When I have the choice to show up as the blueprint or as my old self image of lack. Its when I get to make that decision of showing up as love or in fear.  As God or as Satan. I Am or adversary. 

   This revelation has been brewing in me for years, it took several people and situations to get me to this moment. I had to deconstruct from taught traits, taught lies and a religious mindset, to find the source of all things, unconditional love! I am still walking this out, its fresh and I am sure I will miss the mark some days. But I now see truth where I believed lies, I now have a greater understanding of love and of what its power is. I see that I Am, the perspective of I Am and the source is part of me, is me and I get the joy and honor to share that with everyone! 

The Frequency

Love heals all wounds, not time. Time is an illusion, but love exists. For God is love and through that love is the frequency of healing. It is why the Bible says,

“greater love than this hath no one, that any one his life may lay down for his friends;”

‭‭John‬ ‭15:13‬ ‭YLT1898‬‬

“And the fruit of the Spirit is: Love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith,”

‭‭Galatians‬ ‭5:22‬ ‭YLT1898‬‬

“and above all these things, [have] love, which is a bond of the perfection,”

‭‭Colossians‬ ‭3:14‬ ‭YLT1898‬‬

“‘This is my command, that ye love one another, according as I did love you;”

‭‭John‬ ‭15:12‬ ‭YLT1898‬‬

“‘A new commandment I give to you, that ye love one another; according as I did love you, that ye also love one another;”

‭‭John‬ ‭13:34‬ ‭YLT1898‬‬

   It also says, love your neighbor, your enemies and God with all your heart. When we love we change the atmosphere, we shift things into a greater realm of being. The Bible talks about sacrifice through love, to be love despite your own feelings of resistance. 

   When I love my enemy, I no longer see an enemy, I see the struggles of a story I do not know. I cast love upon it, it heals not only me but them also. Hate and dislike is like laying a knife to an open wound. Bitterness and anger is to pour salt in that wound. It gets deeper, burns more until all you have is a constant reminder of a past transgression, that shouldn’t carry in weight in this moment. But you keep looking at it, you keep visiting it and it infects your whole mindset. But when you love, the wounds heal, the scar fades and you move on to a higher frequency of being, the complete you.

   We are what we project. If I love or give out of expectation to receive, then thats how I will view love and the expectation will be as such. If I love just to love then love returns not from the external but from the internal being, that is the very essence of love, our Father. I love you simply because  Am love. It is a frequency shift, it is who we are as Him. 

   We all have it in us. Love is of our creator, He is love! It becomes a choice, hate or love, His perspective or our minds perspective. Complicated or completed. You can heal, yourself and others, by stepping into who He made you to be… LOVE

The Blueprint

Condemnation comes from a self appointed judge who sees their own view as being the righteous view. I’m right, you are wrong and God is ashamed of you. 

Conviction is a personal thought of lack, a less than mentality of believing that God is disappointed in me. I cannot see myself as He sees me, perfect. I only see my mistakes as being ungodly and unrighteous. 

Spiritual truth is that you are as He, one spirit. You are wonderfully and perfectly made in His image. He loves you as He loves Himself. His view of you is out of love, it is love and it is righteous! 

To stand with the view of condemnation or conviction is walk in the belief that God created an image of Himself that is unrighteous, unholy and is less than. It is saying that God made a mistake, that He is foul able. 

In our humanity, this flesh believes that it has the answers, it believes that it has the right to judge all things through its human eyes and human mindset. The result is that we label others from that place, bad and evil. We label ourselves in the same manner. This means that God is bad and evil, (one spirit, in His image). 

Jesus walked as man, giving us direction and a blueprint of what to do, how to be. He did what the Father was doing, He tapped into the one Spirit and loved as the Father loves as that one Spirit. 

According to scripture even Jesus made mistakes and let His humanity get in the way of His spirit or did He? He called the Pharisees, whitewashed tombs, snakes and hypocrites. Was love in this, is that what the Father was doing or was that His own human experience? Later on in scripture He had a chance to speak out against them again, but did not. He kept His mouth shut, He did not condemn them anymore. He actually spoke for our sakes on the cross, showing us that even in our pain, we are to be love. He did this in the form of forgiveness, “forgive them for they know not what they are do”. 

Jesus was and is the blueprint of how we are to be in our humanity and in our Spirit. We have the choice to be as He that is in us or be as those whitewashed tombs. We can be love that lives in us or be knowledge without actually knowing Him that is in us, as us. Your fruit is in this, love is sweet and beautiful! It is the very essence of who you are, you just have to tap in to it, know that you are one with Him. You are love, can be love and be loved, because that is exactly how He made you.

The Captive Mindset

   A captive mindset is one that believes what it is being told by someone, whom it has deemed as being more knowledgeable or more powerful, has all the answers. In this mindset, the person gives up all of their will to seek out answers on their own. They have a tendency to not question those they have put in authority over their mind. Their own thoughts of a different idea or possibility, is quickly removed by the power of that one or ones they have put over them. The ability to think or act upon these thoughts and questions has been pushed back and subdued by the captor. Even if the captive mind finds the courage to ask why or speaks out differently, it is quickly put into its place of its less than capabilities. It will except the answers or different idea as the truth and go on its false identity of happiness. It doesn’t even know it is a captive, because of its belief of being less than the captor.

   How is this possible? How does someone capture a mind? It is the simplest and oldest tool in the world, fear! The most obvious example is someone who is battered, especially physically but it also can be phycological. A person physically abused will eventually submit to the authority of the abuser out of fear of the pain both body and mind. They submit to their own thoughts of, they are obviously superior and will keep returning even if it doesn’t make any sense of going back. 

   Fear, however doesn’t have to physical in order to impose its will on the mind. I will leave you, I will take away my love or you will be condemned. I have personally walked through all three of these. In a failed marriage, in an family relationship and in a church family. My focus today is on the church. I am not here to beat up or blast the church, but for me and my opinion it has created a bunch of captives and slaves. Its claims of setting you free and reconciliation comes at a cost, your mindset. You have to turn over your thoughts and ideas and follow this doctrine and theology in order to be part of its family. Anything thought of or stepping outside the box they have built around God, is grounds for punishment and possibly dismissal. They will pull away their love, the support and their unity. That is unless you fall back in line to where you are supposed to be. Now not all churches are this way, but once again it is my view of my own life. 

    The “church” as a building or human entity has been using fear for thousands of years. You can go way back to the days of the Pharisees and see how they used fear to control the mindset of the people. Give, sacrifice and do or God will bring His wrath upon you and your family, maybe for generations. They didn’t talk much of going to Hell, it hadn’t been invented yet. Hell came later and is still used as the greatest manipulative tool in the box, right along with Satan. The “church” has a job to save you from Hell and to teach you to battle Satan. In this though, they have to get your mind right(right along with them). They have to take an age long teaching and convince you that this is the truth. Once they do this, once the fear of eternal torment and the wiles of the devil has been set in place, the fear based mindset, the captive mindset has been shackled and you now are controlled. You are now told if you do not do, these bad things will happen. If you don’t battle, Satan will control your life. If you do not repent, ask for forgiveness and give, Hell awaits. 

   Here, once again my thoughts, is my issue. Using the majority base theology, if I am saved by accepting Jesus, how can I go to Hell? If God says He is in control and that He is my protection and comforter, how can Satan get into my life? How is this possible and why is it taught over and over and over. It is how your mindset is captured. The fear of, they are right, they know more and I lack the ability to see anything other than what they tell me is so. Here is a truth, they believe it too. Why, the same reason that others do. When they questioned it, someone above them told them it was so and they stepped inside the box and are still there today. 

   When I finally broke away from this mindset, when freedom was at hand and I saw the Kingdom, the shackles fell off. When I no longer battled Satan, he no longer showed up. When I learned of the illusion of Hell, I no longer feared and love filled the void. I then grew into something more, I then saw things from a different perspective, God’s perspective! I see God in all things, even the captive mindset. I see love in everything! I am able to see”evil” and “bad” as no more than a false identity. I see my own identity, the one that lets me rest in the Father, the one that lets me love people where they are. This is the fruit of freedom, of being free indeed! Since my wife and I don’t battle, we don’t get attacked by an adversary of any kind. Yes life happens, but we walk through it with love and grace, as He is. When the truth was revealed to us of the illusion of Hell, by God, it set us free to seek the I Am in all things. We are not broke, we are not in turmoil and we are not in fear. All these things that were taught to us, these things that would happen from a god of wrath, from an entity of evil, they haven’t happened, they can’t happen. 

   This is my truth, this is my walk with the Father. I’m not here to change your mind, not here to push my agenda on you. I am just writing down what is happening in my life. I am just putting to words the love and freedom of how God shows up in my life! I Am free today, I Am as He that is in me. I Am one with the Father and I Am able to be. I have found my identity in I Am.

We Are, What We Project.

   If I read a verse different than you, does that make me a heretic? If I read a verse and go deeper by looking up the meaning of the words in Greek and Hebrew for myself, is that going against The Word or against the word as you know it, as it was taught to you? If I research the origins in which things were put, in translation, in the Bible, am a commenting blasphemy or am I a scholar? If I believe that Christ is the teacher, that through revelation He reveals the mysteries, the knowledge of God, to me and to you, am I a lover of Christ, or anti-Christ? If you believe the negative about someone, see things only through your lens of understanding, claim to be a follower of the word, teach we are of sin, are sinners and you must do, are you a Christian or a Pharisee? 

   My point is, how we treat, even those we disagree with, is important. True unconditional love, which is what our Father is doing, comes without the judgement. We spend more time judging each other, instead of loving each other. We spend more time listening to rebuke, instead of listening to understand. We look to see the negative they bring, instead of the positive. When Jesus walked as man, He taught those in front of Him from where they were at. He spoke in parables of the times, of that age. He showed them through their lens of understanding, not through His knowledge of all knowing. Do we really think we can read the KJV, NIV or the YTL1898 and be all knowing of the Word of God? That is actually first of all full of arrogance and second of all pretty impersonal from a God whom seeks a relationship with you. Isn’t it? 

   I personally have come to a place of understanding, of a realization, that all of those around me brings revelation and knowledge. If I listen to hear God’s voice through their words, if I truly have ears to hear, then I will hear, Him. Even if I don’t stand in agreement with someone, God is still there, in their truth is God. 

   People have done horrific things in the name of God, Jesus snd Christianity, it doesn’t change the fact that in it, was their truth at that time. Through their filters of understanding, it was how they saw it. Their mindset nay have been more of them instead of Him, but somewhere in there, He was speaking. That is sometimes tough to get, to want to understand, but is a truth. When we say He is in all things, it means “all” things. This means even those things we do not approve of. 

   I have written all of the above to say this, you are love. What we do with that is important. We must have Grace in our hearts for all of God’s children. We need to have unconditional love and project it in all we do. We have to manifest positivity through our actions and words. We are co-creators in this way, in His ways. 

   Let us start viewing each other in a different way, let us not judge, for you will be judged in the same way. That is a powerful statement. If you love, unconditionally you are now as the one who lives in you. How powerful that can be! Let us follow the two commands, love God with all your heart and love your neighbor as you love yourself! If we are truly walking that out, being as Jesus was, we will then project and manifest the very thing we all seek, Heaven on earth. 

Our walk, Our Truth

   When we look upon revelation as being credible only if confirmed by the bible then are we not questioning the very words of the Bible? When we read the books that Paul wrote, these very teachings are revelation. We also read several times that the Bible has mysteries, in the writings it makes that clear. It talks that Jesus did more than could possibly be written in a book, what are these mysteries, these thing He did? Why are they not there? 

    Paul tells us directly that he was not taught by man but through the revelations he got from Jesus. Jesus who had ascended and was now as He is in Spirit. Are we now to believe that no other man can be influenced by Jesus? The Spirit if Jesus? That He couldn’t do that through all of us? Do we sit down with the Bible and keep Jesus locked in it and the only time He gets to escape and teach us is through the words that someone else wrote down? Do we forget that, someone else wrote down their views of events they heard of, they saw and things they heard and felt through revelation? Even the gospels are not exactly the same about the same events that Jesus did and said as He walked the earth as a man. Which one do we believe so we can walk to the exact form of inerrancy? Does Matthew have one hundred percent or does Luke? If you say that you take a little from both but not each to the letter, then is it truly inerrant? If I read women should not speak in church, but allow women to speak in church, if I believe that all is true in the Bible, do I really get to play the “it was written in a different age than us card”? Here is whats up, it was all written in a different age than us. How do I or how dare I say such a thing but claim that these are God’s words to be followed to the letter? Once again, who do I follow, which teaching? Peter? Paul? They both  contradict each other and sometimes even themselves. In Hebrews, the author writes that God did not like blood sacrifices, then says that Jesus was sent as a blood sacrifice…  What? Paul writes that not of blood or the will of man we are cleansed but of the will of God, but later we read it is by the blood of Jesus we are cleansed of our sins. Wait, it says that God is the same today as He was yesterday and will be same tomorrow, but today He cannot see my sins, but before Jesus He could? No thats not right either, He can’t see them after I say the sinners prayer, that,  by the way, I still cannot find in the inerrant Bible so many speak of. 

   Let me say this, I believe in the Bible, it sends me into revelation, it walks me through things and I find comfort in it. I am not anti Bible nor am I Antichrist, I love Jesus and what He has shown me, in and out if the Bible. I also will confess this, I don’t always get it right. I have the brain of man, no matter how powerful Jesus is in my heart. My thoughts are not always taken captive. My ego sometimes shows up in the most unlikely places or inappropriate times. I see it happen now, where before I could not. I also see it not show up as often as it use to. I have changed more because of it. I have been stretched far beyond what I thought was possible and I am still being stretched. It is so good! Glory to Jesus! 

   Let me tell you a quick story, I was back in church for the first time in many, many years. The lights dimmed and the music started, people were worshipping and I was over there thinking what am I doing here? I did not believe in Jesus. I did not believe in resurrection. I did believe in God though. Anyways, I am standing there and an overwhelming feeling came over me. I couldn’t figure it out, I didn’t feel pressure, I wasn’t really scared, but something was happening in me, around me and through me. I now know it was the presence of Jesus, then I thought I was losing my mind. I closed my eyes in an attempt to escape. Instead it escalated. I stepped right into a vision, as someone took a hold of my hand( which I thought was my now wife), I saw a path form out in front of me. The path was dirt, dimly lit and went on as far as I could see. A calm voice said, “ follow the path and will all be ok”. I opened my eyes to once again escape, but the path remained. I looked at my hand to find something real to grasp and although I could still feel my hand being held, no visible hand was there. It was Him, Jesus. He was letting me know that He was there, guiding me down the path. I still thought I was losing my mind, but the truth is that my mind was beginning to be renewed. The point of the story is this, I didn’t say the prayer, I didn’t know the Bible at all, I didn’t believe in Jesus before that moment. So then why did He show up? If I didn’t believe, if I had not taken the oath, why then would He be there for me? I know the answer today, because no matter what, I was never separated from Him, it wasn’t about knowing verses, it’s not about a special prayer or even repentance, it’s about unconditional love! A love so great that even someone who publicly spoke out about His very existence was loved! 

   The Bible says, love God with all your heart, love your neighbor as yourself, it even says love your enemies, so are we following that to the letter? Here is a giant question I would like you to pounder, to take to God…  What Bible was Moses following, Enoch or even Jesus? Did Paul set down and read the four gospels and then write the letters to the different churches that he had ministered to? The book of Revelations was a vision someone had, so why is it followed to the letter like the gospels? Why do we believe his vision over Nichol’s or Brian’s? To me the truth lies in my heart, in my Spirit that walks with God, sits upon the throne with him. My truth, that may very from yours, is all about where He is taking me at the moment , what He is teaching me. What does He need me to know and how am I getting there? That is what the truth of the moment is all about, obedience to the moment, not to a teaching from someone else’s perspective. 

   Here is something God just said to me, if your body was made up of all feet, how would it function? So the truth is the same for the body of Christ, it is made up if all of us. We are walking through different things, because He needs us to, that simple. As ling as we follow the head, which is Jesus, we are not and will not get it wrong. Moses did his walk, Paul did his, its time for you and I to do ours. Listen and  find your guidance, down your path. He has you, He knows you and His love never fails! 

Grace, The Best News Ever

We want to go deeper, we want to feel more, see more and understand from His perspective. But we choose to do nothing about it. We listen to same people, we listen to the same teachings and we change nothing. Why? It’s because we find comfort in that which is familiar. We get complacent and we block out those things that we say we desire. It’s not that we don’t desire them, it’s not that we truly don’t want to know more, but this could require change. Our human self fears change, it fears what we already know being challenged. The biggest of them all is, what if what I believed all this time isn’t true? What if what I spoke out about, told others about isn’t exactly the truth? So what? You would join the millions of others who have done this with minor things to greater things. Here is a fact, just because it has been taught for ten, a hundred or a thousand years doesn’t make it true. What it does make it is ingrained in society, ingrained in those teaching and ingrained in you. 

   Here is something for you. If you decide to look outside your box of understanding. If you decide to listen or read something new or different. If you feel something different from your Spirit, it doesn’t make you a heretic or blasphemous. It makes you a disciple. Think about those twelve, what they endured. They followed and listened to a man speaking and teaching something totally different then what they knew. Jesus was teaching the Jewish people about Grace. He was releasing them from the law of man and attempting to lead them to a fearless relationship with the Father, our Father. He was trying to reconcile them with the unconditional love they always had, He was teaching the disciples the same thing. Think about how lost they were at first, how it challenged what they knew and their belief system. It was what they had been taught for years, but yet something inside them said, wait… there is something to this man, something to what He is saying. Grace wins every time, Jesus is Grace. 

   Paul wrote about two thirds of the New Testament, but are we truly listening to what he is saying? He wrote to the gentiles of his day, but it still is speaking to us today. He taught Grace, nothing more. He didn’t go back into the old news, he didn’t go back and teach law, he taught only the good news of Jesus Christ. He taught redemption, with out works. He taught complete forgiveness, with striving. He taught unconditional love from our Father, without us loving Him first. But yet, we go back, read those things taught in bondage mindset and make them our truth today. We proclaim Grace abound, but keep one foot placed firmly in the law. We listen to law, we teach law and we view it as Grace, tell everyone that this is Grace. The truth is we have to choose, Grace or law. If you go back and do one law, you have to do all six hundred and thirteen of them. You cannot be free unless you do one or the other. Jesus came to walk out the law of man for you, with you. He did it so you don’t have to, but yet we still go back, we still keep trying to do the work. 

   There is so much to learn from the old covenant, from that which happened before the cross. But it was not written to you, it was written for you to learn about. The truth (Jesus was the truth and the way), happened on the cross and went on after the cross. This was written to you. Paul’s revelations of Grace, the recognition of the finished work, is what we are supposed to be following. We have to get out of that box, that mindset of doing to be accepted by God’s love, His Grace. These things taught and ingrained in us, this is the bondage of self, our fear holds us back from wholeness and completeness through the very Grace we seek. 

   The things I am writing about aren’t really so far out there, they are in The Book. We have been blinded by the veil that we chose to put over own faces. We chose to listen and accept that which we believe today. We are chained to these beliefs and wonder why we are not truly happy. Pure Grace is the best news ever! Why is then we continue to drag those chains behind us? I leave you with these verses, this is who you are…

“Therefore, brethren, we are debtors—not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:12-17‬ ‭NKJV

Hebrews 10 TPT…

   I would like you to read this. Read it two times if you like. I used TPT because it says it so clear, but it doesn’t matter which one you use. Soak it in. 

“For if animal sacrifices could once and for all eliminate sin, they would have ceased to be offered and the worshipers would have clean consciences. Instead, once was not enough so by the repetitive sacrifices year after year, the worshipers were continually reminded of their sins, with their hearts still impure. The old system of living under the law presented us with only a faint shadow, a crude outline of the reality of the wonderful blessings to come. Even with its steady stream of sacrifices offered year after year, there still was nothing that could make our hearts perfect before God.

For what power does the blood of bulls and goats have to remove sin’s guilt? So when Jesus the Messiah came into the world he said, “Since your ultimate desire was not another animal sacrifice, you have clothed me with a body that I might offer myself instead! Multiple burnt offerings and sin-offerings cannot satisfy your justice. So I said to you, ‘God— I will be the One to go and do your will, to fulfill all that is written of me in your Word!’ ” First he said, “Multiple burnt-offerings and sin-offerings cannot satisfy your justice” (even though the law required them to be offered). And then he said, “God, I will be the One to go and do your will.” So by being the sacrifice that removes sin, he abolishes animal sacrifices and replaces that entire system with the new covenant. By God’s will we have been purified and made holy once and for all through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus, the Messiah! Yet every day priests still serve, ritually offering the same sacrifices again and again—sacrifices that can never take away sin’s guilt. But when this Priest had offered the one supreme sacrifice for sin for all time he sat down on a throne at the right hand of God, waiting until all his whispering enemies are subdued and turn into his footstool. And by his one perfect sacrifice he made us perfectly holy and complete for all time! The Holy Spirit confirms this to us by this Scripture, for the Lord says, “Afterwards, I will give them this covenant: I will embed my laws into their hearts and fasten my Word to their thoughts.” And then he says, “I will not ever again remember their sins and lawless deeds!” So if our sins have been forgiven and forgotten, why would we ever need to offer another sacrifice for sin?”

   Now that you have read it, I have a question… Why are you working so hard? We have been taught to “do”. Do this, do more of this, it will get you right with God. That is old covenant teaching, law! Repent, ask for forgiveness, pray to be blessed, give more money, serve to be favored. Do, do, and do some more! You don’t have to do anything. It says right there in scripture, He did it for us, for all of us. When we finally wrap our minds around what our Spirit knows, we will be free, free indeed. 

   Jesus came to do for you, from what Adam did to you. He came to wash you clean. He came to release you. What more do you think you can do to make it better? God already sees you pure and clean. It says so in scripture, no more needs to be done. You are righteous, whole and complete. One sacrifice for all! Once again scripture says so. Then why are we being taught that we must do more? 

   As you believe this, really believe this, you will find a freedom like you have never known. You will draw closer to God, the God that is already in you. As you see you as He sees you, the righteousness that He knows will manifest naturally out of you. You will do out of want instead of out of have to. You are already favored, already Holy and already forgiven.

   Read it again, now believe it!

Did He Die in Vein

You will hear many things about those who choose to not do business as usual. You may yourself look down on them, speak ill of them and call them blasphemers. Why is this? Is it because of right and wrong? Who determines this? 

   That day, on the cross, Jesus said “it is finished”. Some of us believe that. We saw and see the end of the old covenant. We see that the law was broken, it is done. But for some it is ingrained in you, that you must still follow the law, it was for me too. The working and the striving. One foot in the law, the old covenant teachings and the other in Grace. We say that Jesus came to reconcile us from the works of the law, we say He came for us all to be free, but yet we stay in that bondage. We follow this law and not that one, we say we have to do this for God’s acceptance, but can disregard that one. This is a mixed message. We read a verse out of the old covenant, that is teachings before the cross and tell each other this is the way to God. If we are still having to do those things, Jesus died for nothing! 

   What if I told you that you were born free of the law, of bondage to the law of the old covenant, until someone taught it to you. Someone told you that faith without works is dead, not that His Grace is enough, that Jesus plus nothing is enough. Someone taught you that tithing ten percent is what God wants you to do, not that you should give from your heart, that serving is showing God you love Him, not serve because you love your brothers and sisters. Someone taught you that you have to show God your faithfulness for Him to give you favor, not that truth is God is faithful even when we are faithless. Old covenant, new covenant, you don’t have to believe me, but look this up for yourself. These examples are in your Bible too, one is on one side of the cross, the other is on the other side. 

   It is not anyone faults, it was taught to them too. Years of religiosity has got them all tied up also. Religion is powerful, even those who speak out against it can’t see their own bondage to it. This included me! I had to rest in Him to see this. I had to be still, open my heart, which opened my mind to see the truth. It has been right in front of us all along. We must die to our flesh to truly see God’s Grace. As long as we stay busy, as long as we continue to servants to the law, we will not see the true meaning of what Jesus did for us all. Just take ten minutes each day, rest in Him, don’t read, don’t pray for anything, just rest in Him. Listen, hear Him, see what He is really been telling you all along. Grace was freely given, you are in the new covenant and He loves you unconditionally!

“I do not make void the grace of God, for if righteousness [be] through law — then Christ died in vain.”

‭‭Galatians‬ ‭2:21‬ ‭YLT1898
