December 7th 2017 – True Healing Comes by the Way of the Cross

“Now when they came to Marah, they could not drink the waters of Marah, for they were bitter. Therefore the name of it was called Marah. And the people complained against Moses, saying, “What shall we drink?”  So he cried out to the LORD, and the LORD showed him a tree. When he cast it into the waters, the waters were made sweet. There He made a statute and an ordinance for them. And there He tested them,  and said, “If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the LORD who heals you.”  (Exodus 15:23-26)

In the Old Testament, Jesus had not come as a human yet, but His Holy Word had already come. We know from the Word of God that on the cross, Jesus not only took our sins, but He also took our sicknesses and diseases.

(1 Peter 2:24) talks about this tree.  Look at it, “Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness–by whose stripes you were healed”.

When God showed Moses a tree, he cast it into the water and the water was made sweet.  This is a type of our Jesus, He hung on the tree for you and for me.  And when we cast ourselves on Him, we are made whole.  I believe this is total wholeness, spirit, soul and body.

So today, look at the tree, and let your sins be cast on it, let your sicknesses be thrown on Him.  It is through the blood that Jesus spilled on the tree, the “cross”, that we are made well not only spirituality but physically!   What a great God we serve.

True Healing comes by the way of the Cross, whether it is Healing for yourself, others or this Country. ask for Jesus in and allow Him to start to heal.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, At The cross You blood spilled Your blood for me.  The work of Calvary was a complete work, a work that was completely done in me.  Thank You, Jesus, for dying on the that tree (cross) and bearing all of my shortcomings so that I can be whole, so I can be healed, so I can be set free because of what you sacrificed on the tree… I love You and trust You Lord. I will not take my eyes off you… in Your precious name Amen.

May 8th 2017 – A Dash of Deceit?

Then Abimelech said to Abraham, “What did you have in view, that you have done this thing?” And Abraham said, “Because I thought, surely the fear of God is not in this place; and they will kill me on account of my wife. (Genesis 20:10-11)

There is a moment when the pressure is on and self-preservation becomes our instinct. Abraham is in that moment and has made up his mind to lie. One of the things Proverbs 6 makes clear is that God hates lying and a false witness. That moment comes to all of us. It’s not an if but a when. When you have slipped up on the job or in your relationship with your spouse, friend,  or kids do you resort to weighing out implications and hunt for a way out of the situation by tossing out a little deception or deceit? How about when you’re getting ready to do your taxes or get out of an unwanted commitment for lunch? Does the pretense of those moments persuade you to want to soften the situation with a seductive little lie?

(Romans 7:14) “So the trouble is not with the law, for it is spiritual and good. The trouble is with me, for I am all too human, a slave to sin”

(Romans 7:24-25) “Oh, what a miserable person I am! Who will free me from this life that is dominated by sin and death? 25 Thank God! The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Abraham is getting rebuked by Abimelech for lying and then we see that Abimelech turns and rebukes Sarah as well (Genesis 20:16). You see, there is no good thing in us. Just like Abraham, we are called into walking in our faith, yet, we fumble with our circumstances and sin sometimes. But God is willing to correct us and strengthen us when fail as long as we are willing to receive the corrections. We also get to experience the reconciliation in Christ. He deepens us just like He deepened Abraham and Sarah who in turn responded to the Lord. If you have been found in a situation stepping into sin, be quick to return to Christ be replenished and refreshed by His Spirit that extends His freedom and joy to you even now.

“We have the option to live a transformed life in Christ or a self-preserving life in ourselves. Owning up to, and confessing our sins, allows us to live in the freedom of joy.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, please forgive me when I want to manipulate circumstances or run from things and not deal with the issues You are revealing in my heart. Please forgive me of any pretense or sin that causes me to be self-preserving instead of trusting You in all things. Please give me Your power to walk after You with a pure heart in all things. In Jesus’ name, Amen
