11. A Risen and Justifying Saviour.
Justification implies ‘just as if we had never sinned’. The works of our Lord Jesus Christ was complete, he finished it on the cross. He went down, conquered the powers below and then took the gates of hades and shook them. He crushed principalities, powers and rulers of darkness of this world, made a public show of them triumphing over them. He then resurrected and ascended. He did all these for us. We need to walk in the consciousness that everything Jesus did is for us and we should learn to download them. For example the blood of Jesus does not avail unless it is applied. However, it is the revelation you have about the blood of Jesus that will release the power. Revelation brings power. Revelation activates power. For instance, if I say ‘in the name of Jesus’ and another person says same, both may not carry the same power because of difference in the level of revelations we have. It is the revelation I have that will give weight to the anointing. When the seven sons of Sceva saw how the Apostles were casting out devils in Acts 19:14-17, they also tried to use the name of Jesus that the apostles used to cast out devils. “And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye? And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded. And this was known to all the Jews and Greeks also dwelling at Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified.” Anybody can call Jesus, but do you know him? It is the knowledge that brings and strengthens the connection. It is only those that do know that will do exploits. Those that deal treacherously with the covenant shall be corrupted by flatteries according to Dan 11:32. The antichrist will corrupt them by flatteries. It is not everybody that can do exploits. My prayer is that you will be one of them that will do exploits and will not be exploited in the mighty name of Jesus. Knowledge is very important and it takes revelation to know Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
The beauty of keys is in the application so start using these keys immediately and the Lord will open doors for you in Jesus name. Rom 4:25, “Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.” A comprehensive work was done for us on the cross. Through his death, burial, resurrection and ascension, we can declare that we are justified. God has made adequate provisions for our comprehensive well-being here and hereafter. May we never forget these provisions in Jesus name. One of the regrets that many people will have when they get to heaven is how much they could have done if they had a better revelation of who they were in Christ, what they had in Christ and what Jesus had done for them. It will be one of the things that will shock people when they get there. Let us thank the Lord Jesus that we are justified through His death burial and resurrection. We are justified just as if we had never sinned. He is our risen saviour. Death could not hold Him captive.
- Lord, I glorify your name. I magnify your name. I celebrate you. Lord I celebrate the fact that death could not hold you captive, that you rose from the dead, that you took my sins away. I celebrate you Jesus, you are my justifier.
- I celebrate my relationship with you. I ask you, O Lord, to open my eyes to the blessings of justification. Open the eyes of every member of my family to the blessings of justification. Open the eyes of every member of Holy Ghost Fellowship International to the blessings of justification by faith in your finished work on the cross of Calvary in Jesus name. Thank you Jesus. Amen.
