‘The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, "Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!’ John 1.29 NIV.
LIVE IN THE TRUTH
Millions of Christians have been separated from the love of the Father by a lie. The lie that you have to get yourself into right standing with the Father before you can come to Him. Reject any teaching that urges you to get yourself into right standing with God. Jesus has already placed you in right standing. Nothing you have done or can ever do can put you into right standing with God. Except your belief. I mean your trust in Christ. Even then it is not the extent of your trust. It is Jesus Himself who is the door and your trust. You are standing in Jesus.
There are prophets who hear from God but prophecy out of old covenant assumptions. As a result their application is off. Today Christ is your life, your door to the Father.
You either believe Him or try to work up some belief in yourself. Don’t fall for it. Not even when it is associated with prophecy from noted prophets. We live in the new covenant today. Today Christ is our life - totally. God has placed you in Christ. In Christ you are in the Father because they are one. So don't work at getting yourself into 'right standing.’ Work at believing what has already been done for you in Christ.
‘Jesus answered, The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent’ John 6.29 NIV.
A SABBATH REST
You are seated in heavenly places in Christ. You are in the Fathers arms. Live from that position. His love will draw your heart into His. His light and holiness will purge sin from your life. You will be repelled by impurity. You will be sensitised to your sins and repent of them. The fire of His presence will purify your being and give you a hunger for righteousness. But never forget this. You are there in His presence entirely on account of His Son. Cleansed by His blood you come in His righteousness, not your own. When He died, He died for all of you - not bits of you. You are complete in Him. Don't stress over sins you cannot remember. Repent of the sins you can and agree with the Father that Christ is entirely your life.
‘And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus’ Eph 2.6 NIV.
Standing in the glory of the cross you are in right standing with God. Positioned here you move from glory to glory. You cannot earn your intimacy with God. You have been given it. Live in what you have been given. You come into right standing with God because you are in Christ and He is in you. You have been made one with God. Live in this union and you will reproduce works of holiness and life.
