INSIGHT INTO THE MYSTERY


:
With back laid on the bed, it was being dropped in my Spirit as I write them down. This is a fresh insight into the amazing things God has done for the sake of man from Genesis to Revelation.
:
The law was Perfect, it was made available by God as part of His plans. The law wasn’t evil, it was holy, it was good! It had a time frame, the Prophets who served under those times were men of God who followed God in faith even as custodians of the law. When the time was up for the law, God brought it to an end and brought into reality the real thing the law represented! The law was a code men couldn’t crack, God never intended that we crack it! The law gave a definition of God’s righteousness which only God could keep! Jesus came, fulfilled it on our behalf and threw sin off balance! The law gave power to sin, it was relevant at that time as man needed to understand how much God’s grace is worth! If there was no law, there wouldn’t have been any basis on which man could have been saved from the mess of Adam.
:
Adam disobeyed God and by so doing paid allegiance to Satan which brought an abuse to the nature God had designed! It altered the very nature of man and made sin available into the system. To destroy sin, it needed to be defined! God brought the law and the law defined sin! To be able to save man, judgement was pronounced on sin and the sinner! The soul that sins shall die, this would make it possible for Jesus to die in the place of man and sin would loose its dominion! When Jesus came, He fulfilled the law, the law which also proceeded from Him! He died in our place and made us live in His place. When He died, He took the law along with him, this way sin was ultimately dealt with! When He resurrected, He did so as a clear showcase of who we are, those who have found their place in Him! New creatures! We became new in Him and anyone who believes in Him receives this life and will not perish but have the exact life of Jesus, a life that has no end, a life that wouldn’t be corrupted anymore.
:
It was all in God’s plan! Adam’s disobedience never took Him by surprise, He wasn’t shocked to the bones! He had the scripts and it was playing out exactly the way He had written it! It was His plan that humanity will start with Adam and end in Jesus! Humanity ended in Jesus, as He was lowered in the grave, the end to humanity was obvious! This is why He was called the second and last Adam! There was no third Adam and He ceased to be the second Adam the day He resurrected! Adam went to the grave with Him and never came up with Him! It is in the reality of this truth that we find ourselves when we believe in Jesus and what He has done.
:
While Jesus brought an end to Adam, the world is still full of people who are living in the old frame! Why? When God made man, they were made to make their choice! If not, Adam wouldn’t have even eaten the fruit, it was a choice they made. In the same way, to enter into the reality of what Jesus has done, man must make a choice to accept what Jesus has done! To be born on earth is a choice two persons made on your behalf, to live on earth is a choice, to be born again is a choice! This is why it is called “born again”, to end the corrupted life and start the new life available in Jesus. This allows what Jesus did to be made manifest in us!
:
Now, this is where the battle ends and another begins! We have entered into rest but Satan who has been fatally wounded isn’t resting, this time he can’t do more but only try appealing to our consciences, to fear and doubt what God has done. It is a battle of the mind but a free man enjoys freedom when he is aware of his freedom. This prompted Jesus to say that it is the knowledge of the truth that sets one free and He is the truth! Knowing Jesus sponsors our experience of freedom.
:
Deliverance or salvation experience isn’t what we get by praying and doing! It is what we get by believing! We pray because we believe, we do because we believe! As long as we keep believing, we are continuously exercising our victory over the devil. Now, he comes and roar but we stand our ground, we don’t panic or shake because we know he is wounded and he only wants to deceive us into thinking God is limited! There is no limited edition of God and we have the very unlimited life of God.
:
We are secured as long as Jesus lives and He lives forever! Secured, in the sense that we do not fear hell, we do not fear destruction, we do not fear challenges because we have overcome the world! We love freely, we do God’s word freely not to get a spot in heaven but because Jesus works in us both to will and to do. Nothing has the power to separate us from the love of God, this gives us confidence and assures us of eternal security. His Spirit given to us is a mark of His faithfulness.
:
The legalistic nature of man which is the particles of the fallen state of this world would want to make us feel we need to do something tangible in order to secure such a love but God has said it and promised that He never fails! What else can we do if not believe and keep believing? God planted the garden and brought man into a finished work to enjoy! This is exactly what He did for us in Christ.
:
We who have believed and are enjoying the wonderful life of God have a call of duty. To help others come into the knowledge of truth, because we are part of God, it is our business, a business that has eternal reward! Jesus said “Go”, it wasn’t a plea but a command, an army command that requires haste. If truly we understand the height of what God has done, we will go out and plunder the plundered darkness! What are we to do? To tell people what Jesus has done and see them enjoy their freedom from the moment they believe.
:
This is what it is all about!
This is God’s word!
