30. Revelation of Jesus Christ through whom we are dead to sin and alive to God.
Rom. 6:11, “Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.” There is a walk with God that brings you so close to heaven that everything that is tainted with sin will become an abomination to you. This is what true sanctification is all about. Loving God so much that you are not ready to displease him; hating what he hates. This is no longer being emphasized. If you try to do, you will be labelled as being judgmental. A lot of people are not being prepared for even the shaking that is imminent. The Church is so compromised – a little to the left and a little to the right. The world and the Church – no difference! This should be taught. In Christ, we are dead to sin. Jesus hated unrighteousness. He hated buying and selling in the Church to the extent that he used a whip to drive away those who were buying and selling out of the Church. Do you think he will condone some of the things that are being done in the Church today if he comes down? He has not changed. Heb. 13:8 says, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and for ever.” His principles have not changed. The truth is that the closer you get to God the more you learn to hate what he hates and the more you love what he loves. That is the true meaning of sanctification. Whatever you tolerate you can never run away from.
- As we progress into the year, let every propensity to do the wrong thing die inside of you never to resurrect again. Let the fullness of Christ be manifest in every area of our lives in the mighty name of Jesus.
- May we begin to enjoy heaven right from here in the name of Jesus. Let eternal life begin to flow into our lives in the name of Jesus Christ. May the Lord help us to walk hand in hand with him so that his purpose may be fulfilled in every facet of our lives.
- When others are saying there is a sinking, let our lifting begin in the name of Jesus. Thank you blessed Lord, we give you praise in Jesus name. Amen!
