Does anyone ever bring with them the knowledge of Christ when they become born again and baptised with the Holy Spirit? Are not My thoughts not your thoughts – My ways higher than your ways? Is 55:8 NKJV “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the LORD.”
When you come to Me, I accept you as you are in whatever place you are at. 1 Corinthians 7:17-24 NKJV “But as God has distributed to each one, as the Lord has called each one, so let him walk. And so I ordain in all the churches. Was anyone called while circumcised? Let him not become uncircumcised. Was anyone called while uncircumcised? Let him not be circumcised. Circumcision is nothing and uncircumcision is nothing, but keeping the commandments of God is what matters. Let each one remain in the same calling in which he was called. Were you called while a slave? Do not be concerned about it; but if you can be made free, rather use it. For he who is called in the Lord while a slave is the Lord’s freedman. Likewise he who is called while free is Christ’s slave. You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men. Brethren, let each one remain with God in that state in which he was called.”
You cannot possibly know all there is to know – this is true – yet so many of you struggle with their daily walk, thinking that they somehow lack knowledge in certain areas, or that they don’t ‘measure up’ to My requirements! Well HEAR THIS! I chose you before you were born! I already knew all about your shortcomings. I have loved and accepted you JUST AS YOU ARE! To Me, YOU ARE ALREADY PERFECT. And not only that, you are whole, complete and lacking in nothing. This is the righteousness in Me. You are the righteousness of God in Christ! 2 Corinthians 5:21 NKJV “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”
This is why I came! This is why I sacrificed! This is how much I love you! Some of you out there really need to listen to what I am telling you here. Satan would have you believe that you are not worthy to be in My Kingdom. Now this is a lie. It is a part of the great many lies that he is telling you. Right now, he is angry with you, because he knows the truth. He knows all the scriptures too – and he does not want you to succeed. He will go to any lengths to try to tell you that you are not fit to serve Me. Well folks – his time is up! When you start to feel as though you are not good enough, you fight back with the scriptures! You use My word for what it was designed for! Speak it out in faith and watch it change your circumstances! Speak it forth into all your life’s challenges and situations and be amazed at how your life becomes whole – how you become the person that I know you to be.
Romans 5:12-17 NLT “When Adam sinned, sin entered the world. Adam’s sin brought death, so death spread to everyone, for everyone sinned. Yes, people sinned even before the law was given. But it was not counted as sin because there was not yet any law to break. Still, everyone died—from the time of Adam to the time of Moses—even those who did not disobey an explicit commandment of God, as Adam did. Now Adam is a symbol, a representation of Christ, who was yet to come. But there is a great difference between Adam’s sin and God’s gracious gift. For the sin of this one man, Adam, brought death to many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of forgiveness to many through this other man, Jesus Christ. And the result of God’s gracious gift is very different from the result of that one man’s sin. For Adam’s sin led to condemnation, but God’s free gift leads to our being made right with God, even though we are guilty of many sins. For the sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to rule over many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of righteousness, for all who receive it will live in triumph over sin and death through this one man, Jesus Christ.”
PS When you find that you are feeling as though you are not acceptable in My sight, remember that I love you now, I have always loved you, and will continue to love you forever and all time and throughout all eternity. You are mine and I am yours. Be that person. Be the one whom I chose long ago. Know and understand that I see you as that person and that nothing you could ever do will change that fact. ALL IS FORGIVEN! Amen. Romans 4:18 NKJV “Blessed is the man to whom the LORD shall not impute sin.” Amen.
All glory for these words, as always, goes to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.
