What has prompted me to realize the confusion in the present scenario of the ‘four-walled’ churches that has brought much confusion to the young lambs that have just been saved and newly ‘borned again’ and came into the KINGDOM raw, with the burden of the world upon their shoulders..
Now if for a moment I can get confused too; so are the young Lambs who have been oppressed by this fallen world, hungry and thirsty for God to fill their needs.. PLEASING SELVES!!
This has challenged me by the Holy Spirit to rewrite my Spiritual Journey in a more sequential way and not bits and pieces here and there that has caused the CONFUSION to the Lambs too!!
FREEDOM FROM BONDAGES TO SLAVE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS (Rom.6:6-23)
FREEDOM FROM SIN
Wow!!! What a sermon I heard from this preacher who had preached his heart out when he challenged his congregation about their new found Salvation; their position, authority and the Righteousness of God in Christ in them, now that they have confessed Jesus in their lives and believed Him in their hearts that Christ is Lord (Rom.10:9).
And by the works Jesus has finished on the cross, all their sins are forgiven and they are now free from bondages of sins (1John 1:7) and there are no condemnation for those who walk in Christ Jesus (Rom.8:1) and all the promises of God are now behind them (2 Cor.1:20) and they have found it by God’s abundant Grace (Eph.2:8); not by our merits or works, that no one should boast!! (Eph.2:9)
They have received the whole package deal of salvation… PTL!!
AND WHAT BETTER TIMES AS WE ARE IN THIS SEASON OF THE END-TIMES THAT GOD WILL POUR FORTH HIS MIGHTIER GRACE (HUMONGOUS HEART) BEFORE THE CURTAIN FOR HUMANITY TO BE SAVED COMES DOWN (Joel 2:28)
THE DEVIL IS ALREADY SPEEDING UP HIS WORK ALL OVER THE WORLD RIGHT NOW; GRABBING AS MANY AS POSSIBLE TO HELL WITH HIM…
LOOK AT THE SITUATION OF THE WORLD RIGHT NOW…
EVERYONE NEEDS A MESSIAH!!!
What an encouraging sermon from that Preacher that will set these people who are young Christian ‘Lambs’ free and they have been admitted into the Kingdom of God bringing along their baggages, curses, burdens and wrong foundations in their lives that they had built up during their earlier lives without Christ. And the piling up of all ‘The Consequences of their Sins’ (Gal. 6:7)…
They will be set free and their curses and baggages etc. will be no more and they are free from bondages of sins, just like the East is from the West (Psalm 103:12)…
On the other hand, they have enjoyed the ‘living water’ of God during worship; the love, peace and joy beyond understanding as they come into the presence of the Lord Most High in His refreshing rain in the Holy Spirit (John 7:38)…
Wow!!! They are so pleased and it has always been inward with fulfilling all their need, to them it is….I, Me and Mine…It’s all about them…
In GOD’S EYES…THEY HAVE ARRIVED AND SALVATION HAS COME…
Yes they have arrived as Citizens of Heaven (Phil.3:20), their names written in the Book of Life and their future will be in eternity as the preacher continued his sermon….
It was a good and interesting, inspirational sermon and you can say they are now in their ‘Honeymoon’ stage of their initial spiritual journey or blissful transition period of their lives as spiritual beings….
They have entered, so to say, into the Outer Court of the ancient Temple of God which is still exposed to the sun and rain, worldliness versus Godliness, flesh against spirit..
O WHAT A DILEMMA!!
THEY HAVE ARRIVED IN SALVATION BUT IT IS ONLY THE BEGINNING OF THEIR SPIRITUAL JOURNEY!!
(To be continued… SLAVE TO RIGHTEOUSNESS)
(My spiritual children….Bless the Lord…)
