And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
Not to long ago when the Spirit of the Lord spoke to me and told me to begin sharing from my heart and to post it online what He had revealed in me about the messages GOD IS SATISFIED, I wondered how many were really going to be impacted by the revelation that is so wonderful and marvelous and come to the understanding of truth that will literally make them free
And the revelation that God wants the world to know is that He is not angry with them, He is not demanding judgment, He is not demanding payment for sin, He is not angry at America and He is not judging America, the anger of God has been appeased.
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
That word condemned in verse 3 means judged, God judged sin in the flesh of His own Son and then God placed your sin on and in His own Son and then judged His Son.
That means that your sins have been paid for, your sins have been dealt with and your sins have been atoned for if you are a born again child of God
Have you heard of the word double jeopardy, let me explain to you what it means,
Double jeopardy is when your crime has been paid for, when your crime as been accounted for and the price has been paid.
Double jeopardy means you can not be tried for the same crime twice; the debt has been paid.
Jesus Christ has paid for my sins, Jesus Christ has suffered for my sins, He suffered rejection, and He suffered separation,
He cried out, My God My God why have thou forsaken me and it was because of me that he suffered being forsaken.
I will never be forsaken by God because Christ was forsaken for me
I will never be rejected by God because Jesus was rejected for me
I will never be separated from God because Jesus was separated for me
I am never going to punished for my sins because Jesus was punished for me,
This is simple and yet so profound.
And yet the church today is trying to make man responsible and accountable for his sins when his sins have been accounted for
2 Cor 5:19
To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
Hear the word of God
God is not imputing there sins unto them, the them is us and then the church tells us that we can not be healed because of sin in our lives, God will not answer our prayers because of sin in our lives
God can not bless us because of sin in our lives and that is not true.
And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
That word reconciled means friendly
Do we understand what that means, it means that God has become friendly with his children but it seems that many of the churches have become unfriendly.
God is not imputing our trespasses towards us and yet the church is.
God is not imputing our sins towards us God wants to reconcile us and the church wants to hold man accountable for his sins
So what am I saying?
Am I saying that there are no consequences for sin?
Does God just close his eyes to sin and we can go and live any way that we want and it is all covered by grace.
When Paul was asked this question His answer was God forbid
What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
If the Love of God is not sufficient to keep you from living in sin then allow me to tell you that the consequences of sin in your life is tremendous and the devastation that it brings is far greater than the price that you will have to pay.
It is through sin that Satan has access to your life; it is through sin that Satan has dominance in your life and it is through sin that you become a servant to Satan.
The consequences of sin are tremendous and the person who goes out and willfully sins is just plain stupid.
Make no doubt about it
The judgment of Gods sin towards you is over if you are a born again child of God, God has placed the judgment of your sins upon Christ and he is never going to judge you again for those sins but every time that you sin, every time that you yield yourself to the forces and dominion of hell (sin) brings you to being a servant of that same hell (sin).
Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
When you yield to sin you yield yourselves to the author of sin and to the horrors and to the devastation that come with that sin.
Yielding to sin brings havoc, it brings confusion and it brings
Servant hood to the forces of demonic activity, it brings servant hood to sickness, to emotional instability, to stress, to unforgiveness, to hatred, to pride, your conscience will be defiled, your lusts will torment you, you will lose your confidence and your assurance.
Your own heart will condemn you and you will chain yourself to demonic thoughts, multitudes will be hurt, your wife, your husband, your children and the list goes on and on and on.
It is stupid to give Satan access into your life and yet God will still love you stupid
Anybody who is taking what I am saying as a license to go out and sin, as a license to go out and do what you want to do because you think that there are no consequences to sin is deceived and walking in a place of deception and they need to get saved.
Give access to Satan and Satan will give you access to hell.
God placed all iniquity upon the Lord Jesus Christ
He did not impute your trespasses towards you, He paid the price for your sin, He suffered your shame and then for you go on and continue to bring shame to yourself and to all those around you by being a servant to sin.
How stupid is that
Christ suffered the embarrassment, the shame, the humiliation, the rejection so that you would not have to and then you continue on in darkness when you have been given the opportunity to walk in the presence of light and life,
It goes beyond being stupid.
Let me deal with this
There are churches all over the country right now that are advocating that you need to do penance, that you need to some how add to what Christ has already done.
What a mockery and a disgrace to the life that was given for the purpose of you obtaining life through salvation.
What arrogance and haughtiness on our part to think that what Christ did was not enough to atone for our sins and to atone for them forever
What pride to think that there are 12 steps in which to be delivered when in fact there is only one step?
Why does the arrogance of man believe that what God has done is not enough and that he has to make up for the rest?
Yes Jesus came and died for your sins but you now you have to live holy,
Yes Jesus came and died for your sins but now in order to get your prayers answered you have to have a life of faithfulness,
Yes Jesus came and died for your sins but in order for you to be healed you must now obey all the commandments.
It is finished
He has done all that needs to be done and He sat down on the right hand of the Father until his enemies become His footstool
There is nothing that you can do to add to what he has already done and until you come to that place of understanding Christ is of no effect to you
Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.
You are fallen from grace because you are trying to be justified through the law, through your good works.
It is amazing to me why the child of God does not get this,
Satan is not trying to fight against God; Satan does not try to accuse God
He is accusing and fighting against you.
Who is Satan?
The accuser of the Brethren
And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
For the accuser of our brethren is cast down, he no longer has access to God to accuse the brethren,
When Christ made atonement and made you accepted in the beloved Satan was cast down because God does not want to hear anymore accusations against you,
Christ made everything all right
The angels are singing the message glory to God in the highest and peace on earth goodwill towards men and because God shut him off and cast him down, the only place left for Satan to go and to accuse is to the brethren.
And if he can accuse you then he strips you of that which Christ did to make you accepted and you no longer feel accepted to walk in the finished and completed work of Christ
Because you have not related your performance to the grace and blessings of God through His Son
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
The word of God is telling us that the gospel is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth.
The word gospel is not referring to your church, it is not referring to your religious activities, it is not referring to concerts and seminars, the word gospel is telling us that it is the power of God and therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith
It is here that the righteousness of God is revealed as faith is released and it is the power of God unto salvation
No wonder the gospel is the too good to be true news.
