“Empowering the abused woman to recover with God's truth"
What I am about to say, is what I believe God gave me this morning, on how people put out false reports on Him!!
Some people say that God killed their family members (someone actually told me this), or God allowed this or that to happen, IS NOT TRUTH, but A BIG FAT LIE from the devil!! GOD IS NOT A KILLER, A DESTROYER, DOES NOT DO EVIL OF ANY KIND, DOES NOT CAUSE CHAOS, CONFUSION, ETC. GOD IS A GOOD, GOOD, FATHER, WHO TAKES GREAT CARE OF HIS CHILDREN!! GOD LOVES US VERY MUCH WITH UNCONDITIONAL LOVE!! God loves the ones who has accepted Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior, and the ones who has not accepted Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior – God is NOT a Respecter of Persons!! God rains on the just as well as the unjust!! We are in this world, but not of this world, as BORN-AGAIN believers!! Things will happen to us because we are in a fallen world. And this should not surprise us because Jesus told us we would have tribulation in this world but to be of good cheer, because He HAS OVERCOME the world for us (John 16:33 KJV).
Whoever is saying God is the author of any sickness, disease, infirmity, chaos, evil, etc. YOU DON’T KNOW GOD AT ALL!! Point blank!! You have gotten it twisted - you are calling good, evil, and evil, good when you say, that God put sickness on you to teach you something!! WHAT??? TEACH YOU WHAT??? You are mixed up!! You need to repent for your conscience’s sake, because God has ALREADY forgiven you, through Jesus!! And ask Holy Spirit to give you a REAL revelation of who God is, Jesus is, He is, and who you are in Christ!!
Now, let’s continue: When people believe for a miracle for healing, and they don’t stand on it, don’t stand on what the Word of God says about healing, by start speaking NEGATIVE words, that negates, the prayer for a miracle!! Then if/when the person that is being prayed for dies, the person praying and others, wants to blame God, or say stupidness like, “Oh it wasn’t God’s will for him/her to be healed.” Or “God needed him/her in heaven.” A bunch of craziness!! IT’S ALWAYS GOD’S WILL TO HEAL US!! That’s why God sent Jesus to take sin, curses, sicknesses, diseases, infirmities, pain, shame, guilt, and EVERY other thing that comes to steal, kill, and destroy from us, to keep us distracted from fellowshipping, and serving God!!
Think about this: Why would God, Who loves us enough to send His only Son Jesus, and made a NEW COVENANT with Him, to die for us while we were yet sinners, so He (Jesus), could take away sin, sicknesses, diseases, infirmities, pain, shame, guilt, and EVERY other thing was a consequence of Adam’s sin, and a requirement to satisfy the sin debt of mankind, to turn right around, disregard the Covenant He made with Jesus, and decide to put sickness, etc. back on mankind???? WHY??? DOES THAT MAKE ANY KIND OF SENSE??? God IS NOT double minded, nor is He confused, nor is He a covenant breaking God!! GOD WOULD NOT DO THAT!!
Sickness is NOT of God!! Sickness and all other curses came about because of Adam and Eve sinning in the Garden of Eden!! Their sin opened the door for all the curses, and other consequences of them disobeying God, to come into the world!! BUT that was under the Old Covenant, NOW we as BORN-AGAIN believers are NOT under the Covenant of the Law of Moses, we are under the NEW COVENANT God made with Jesus, the Covenant of Grace, which focuses on Jesus’ FINISHED WORKS (Pastor Creflo Dollar)!!
When Jesus said, “IT IS FINISHED,” IT WAS FINISHED!! EVERY requirement of the Law, mankind’s sin debt, the consequences (sickness, disease, infirmities, pain, etc.) of not keeping the Law, etc., etc., etc., WERE taken care of by Jesus!!
Therefore, God, Jesus, Holy Spirit HAS DONE Their parts, now it’s up to us, mankind, to REALLY believe what HAS BEEN done for us; to REALLY believe Jesus’ FINISHED works!! JESUS HAS SET US FREE FROM EVERY BONDAGE, EVERY CURSE, EVERY SICKNESS, EVERY DISEASE, EVERY INFIRMITY, EVERY KIND OF PAIN, EVERY SIN, AND GAVE US ABUNDANT LIFE, PEACE, AND AUTHORITY TO PULL DOWN THE devil’s strongholds, that TRIES to come against us - that TRIES to exalt itself against the knowledge of GOD!!
The ball is now in our court - what are WE going to do with what Jesus HAS DONE for us? Are we doing to cry and ask God to do what He HAS done for us through Jesus, or we going to use our authority, and pray against the devil’s plots, plans, ploys, attacks, etc. that is trying to destroy us? The choice is ours!! We can’t blame God or anyone else, if we are not walking in the BLESSINGS of God - we can only blame ourselves - WE are NOT using the Weapons of our warfare and have NOT put on the FULL ARMOR OF GOD to STAND against the enemy’s attacks!! God’s Word DOES NOT lie!!
God tells us in Isaiah 54:17 AMP:
“No weapon that is formed against you will succeed; And every tongue that rises against you in judgment you will condemn. This [peace, righteousness, security, and triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, And this is their vindication from Me,” Says the LORD.
As you see, God HAS ALREADY, THROUGH JESUS, given us peace, righteousness, security, and triumph over opposition (these are a few things we have because of Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection), as our heritage, since we are His servants and is our vindication from God!! That is why at the beginning of this Scripture, it says, “No weapon that is formed against you will succeed; And every tongue that rises against you in judgment you will condemn.” WE are the ones who MUST defend what Jesus gave us; what Jesus CONQUERED for us - NOT God!! WE have EVERYTHING we need, pertaining to life and godliness, to live in this world as VICTORS, NOT victims!! EVERYTHING for a VICTORIOUS LIFE, AND ABUNDANT LIFE, HAS BEEN GIVEN to us by Jesus, through HIS death, burial, and resurrection - HIS FINISHED WORKS!!
We don’t have to defeat the enemy; Jesus ALREADY defeated the enemy and gave us the VICTORY; Jesus made us MORE than conquerors through Himself!!
NOW, we REST in JESUS’ FINISHED WORKS, by BELIEVING AND STANDING ON THE WORD - FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH!! NO MATTER WHAT we see, hear, or feel, we say, “NO, THE WORD OF GOD SAYS———— ABOUT THAT!!” THE WORD OF GOD IS OUR SWORD OF THE SPIRIT!! WE STAND IN FAITH, USING OUR SHEILD OF FAITH!! COME hell or high water, WE STAND ON GOD’S WORD!! GOD WILL BACK HIS WORD - GOD GOT OUR BACK, FRONT, AND SIDES - GOD IS SURROUNDING US, THEREFORE, WE CANNOT FAIL - FAILING IS NOT AN OPTION!! THANK YOU JESUS, THANK YOU FATHER, THANK YOU HOLY SPIRIT!!
