“Empowering the abused woman to recover with God's truth"
Isaiah 53:4-5 – “4 Surely He has borne our griefs And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. 5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed” (biblegateway.com – NKJV).
Galatians 3:13 – “Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”),” (biblegateway.com – NKJV).
If we are going to stand our ground on anything, we should stand our ground on the FINISHED WORKS of Jesus - KICKING out of our lives, EVERYTHING that comes to steal, kill, and destroy from us - EVERYTHING that is trying to steal from us what Jesus died, shed His precious Blood to give us!! Let’s ACCEPT Jesus’ ABUNDANT LIFE, and DENY EVERY other thing, that tries to exalt itself against the knowledge of God (John 10:10; 2 Corinthians 10:5!!
Sickness, disease, infirmities, pain, etc. ARE NOT from God, they are all of the devil, and they come to steal, kill, and destroy from us - they are tools of the devil, the thief!! God IS A GOOD GOD and DOES NOT do ANY KIND of evil, DOES NOT partner with the devil, nor have ANY evil in Him AT ALL (James 1:17-18)!! Those evil things are not normal; they are a part of the curse from not keeping the Law - consequences of sin!! BUT JESUS HAS ALREADY GIVEN US ABUNDANT LIFE!! Therefore, let’s receive it, allow Holy Spirit to teach us how to use what Jesus HAS left for us - to give us the wisdom, knowledge, and understanding of what Jesus HAS DONE for us!!
Jesus HAS, I REPEAT, JESUS HAS DELIVERED, HEALED, AND RESTORED us from ALL sins (past, present, future), ALL curses (generational and ANY other kind, ALL sicknesses, ALL diseases, ALL infirmities, ALL pains, ALL sorrows, ALL guilt, ANYTHING that comes to steal, kill, and destroy from us, EVER, JESUS HIMSELF HAS ALREADY DELIVERED, HEALED, AND RESTORED US - WE ARE, NOT GOING TO BE, WHOLE, COMPLETE IN CHRIST JESUS IN OUR SPIRIT MAN (Colossians 2:10)!! Therefore, we don’t have to beg, plea bargain with God, for ANYTHING - JESUS HAS ALREADY given us ALL we will EVER need to live in this fallen world (Isaiah 53:4-5; Galatians 3:13)!! If we STAND STRONG on God’s Promises like Abraham did, we WILL see our Promise come to past as Abraham did (Romans 4:20)!!
2 Peter 1:3-4 says, “according as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”
In reference to these verses of Scripture, Andrew Wommack said:
“Peter was saying that everything we need comes through knowledge. That’s because Jesus has already given us everything we could ever need when we are born again. We don’t need to get something new. We just need a revelation of what we already have in Christ. Faith is already present (Galatians 5:22-23 - AMP - KJV). We just need to learn how to use what we have. Prosperity is already given; we just need to learn the laws that govern God’s prosperity and cooperate with them. Healing has already been deposited on the inside of us (1 Peter 2:24). We have the same raising-from-the-dead power that raised Jesus from the dead (Ephesians 1:20). We don’t need any more power. We just have to acknowledge (accept or admit the existence or truth of) what we have (Philemon 6) and then learn how to use it. The knowledge of God (2 Peter 1:3) has given us all the promises in the Word of God for the purpose of allowing us to partake of God’s divine nature. What a deal! Lust is the inroad of corruption into the world (James 1:12-18 – Andrew had James 1:14-15 here, but I put James 1:12-18). The English word ‘lust’ here was translated from the Greek word ‘EPITHUMIA,’ and this Greek word means ‘a longing (especially for what is forbidden)’ (Strong’s Concordance).”
In conclusion, we DO NOT need MORE of anything from God - we just need wisdom, knowledge, and understanding of what we have been given because of Jesus, and how to operate in what we have!! Christ HAS redeemed us from the curse of the Law! The Law required us to pay for our sins; the wages for sin according to the Law is death! Jesus has taken care of our debt for us by dying on the cross and taking our sins, sicknesses, diseases, infirmities, pain, shame, guilt, sorrows, and again, EVERYTHING that comes to steal, kill, and destroy from us – from EVERY area of our lives, upon Himself and we now have a choice whether we are going to live or die – heaven or hell – blessings or cursing! There is NO in between; you are either for God or against Him – there is NO middle ground!! Therefore, since Jesus HAS taken care of EVERYTHING that would EVER hinder us from fellowshipping with God, we DO NOT have to have ANY sickness, disease, infirmity, pain, etc. in our bodies (these are enemies, that are trying to stop us from serving and loving God with ALL our hearts, souls, and EVERYTHING within us!! We stand our ground by using our authority and Holy Spirit’s Power to cast these things out of us (our bodies and minds) and from around us!! We pray the Word of God against EVERY mountain, COMMANDING it to be removed and cast into the sea, NEVER to return, believing in our heart that we HAVE received what we prayed for, don’t doubt, and we SHALL HAVE what we say (Mark 11:22-24)!!
If you don’t know Jesus as YOUR personal Lord and Savior, all you have to do to receive the new life He HAS ALREADY died for you to have, is accept Him as your personal Lord and Savior AND embrace His righteousness – develop a personal relationship with God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit so you can walk out your new life!! We are made WHOLE; we are made COMPLETE in Christ!! We are NOT who we were before!! Our past does not dictate who we are or will be in the future!! We are a NEW CREATION in Christ Jesus once we accept Him as our personal Lord and Savior!!
God has had a plan for our lives before the world begin and nothing or nobody is going to stop it (Ephesians 1:3-5). The only way God’s plan for your life is not completed, YOU give up! We belong to God and nothing or anybody is able to pluck us out of His hand (John 10:28-30)! Even the enemy using Eve to cause Adam to disobey God, did not stop God’s plan for mankind – the enemy could not do it then, and will not stop God’s plan NOW – God had a Ram in the bush and His name is Jesus Christ!!
God prepared a way of escape for us (ALL mankind); the way is ALREADY made – you do not have to work for salvation because Jesus already has given you salvation and along with it, EVERYTHING you need to live in this world with the victory (He has overcome the world) – Jesus has paid for salvation, sin, sicknesses, diseases, infirmities, pain, etc. with His life and now all you have to do is receive it by faith – I can’t express this enough!!
Isaiah prophesied in Isaiah 53:4-5 about Jesus; how He would take away the sin, sicknesses, diseases, infirmities, iniquities, sorrows, griefs, etc. of mankind and give us His peace, His love, His joy, His gentleness, His longsuffering, His faith and His goodness – among other things; through the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12-14; Galatians 5:22). Jesus also gave us His righteousness so we could become righteous (2 Corinthians 5:21); this is what makes us brand new creatures in Him. Our righteousness WERE as filthy rags but now we are washed by the Blood of the Lamb – Jesus!! However, in order for this new life to be manifested in us, we MUST accept Jesus as our personal Lord and Savior – then every promise in the Book can be manifested in our lives.
GOD’S BLESSINGS to you all, your families, and your Ministries!
