He Was Crushed So That You Would Be Blessed – Pt 2

[This is part 2 of a 2-part series]  Jesus Christ became an “object of horror” when He bore ALL of our sin, ALL of our curse, ALL of our infirmities, ALL of our sicknesses and ALL of our diseases. In this episode, we continue to examine WHY He bore all that for you and me:

  • Why God laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
  • The silence and submission of The Lamb.
  • His triumph.
  • The New Covenant as foretold in Isaiah 54.
  • The reason why God is not mad at you anymore.

[Scriptures: Isaiah 53:6-12, 54:1,7-10]

He Was Crushed So That You Would Be Blessed – Pt 1

[This is Part 1 of a 2-part series]. Most Christians know that when Jesus went to the cross He died for their sins… and that is true. However, he didn’t just “die for our sins”, he did for SINNERS. He died for YOU. In this episode, based on prophetic scriptures in Isaiah 52 and 53 we examine:

  • The horror of the suffering Messiah
  • Jesus Takes it All: despised, rejected, knowing sorrow and grief firsthand. Bearing our griefs (bodily pains) and sorrows (mental and emotional pains).
  • Because He took all of our punishment, we can enjoy real, lasting Shalom peace.

[Scriptures: Isaiah 52:13-5, 53:3-6]

Law Thinking Drives Us Deeper Into Ourselves and Away From God

Law thinking drives us deeper into ourselves, relying on fleshly resources rather than the kind and infinite resources of our Heavenly Father.

For example, it is commonly taught in the church that God requires a tithe — meaning a tenth of all. Then people get into all sorts of debates about what God requires: do we tithe off gross pay or net? What if I’m unemployed? What it I can’t pay my bills?

Meanwhile, statisticians tell us that less than 10% of church-going people actually do tithe. Some recent reports put it at well below 5%* (more…)

Exposing Satan’s Master Scheme: To Be Like God WITHOUT GOD – Pt. 05

[Part 5 of 5] While Satan’s plan to keep us away from God is devious — by distracting us with DOING to be like God — God’s REALITY for the new order of our being is INFINITELY better than DO — it is CHRIST IN YOU, the hope of glory. In this episode we learn:

  • That we don’t live “for” Christ, but Christ HIMSELF is our life, who is IN us (1 Cor 1:27)
  • The zenith of Christian living is because of our union with Christ, who lives through us, AS US.
  • Living by The Spirit vs. living by the flesh (our humanity)
  • God is not interested in you “becoming”. Believer, you ARE because Christ IS.
  • The NEW ME: a humble vessel, honored to carry and manifest The Lord Jesus Christ!

Exposing Satan’s Master Scheme: To Be Like God WITHOUT GOD – Pt 4

[Part 4 of 5] If Satan’s #1 strategy to keep us AWAY FROM God is to have us believe that we must DO to be LIKE GOD… then what is GOD’s way and plan for us? In this episode we explore God’s brilliant plan in the new creation: not “just you”, but the NEW YOU in union (one) with Christ:

  • We examine the reality of Christ’s oneness with His Father in John 17. This is BEING based not on “doing” but on UNION WITH GOD.
  • What it means when the Bible says that we CONTAIN Christ: as earthen vessels, branches of the vine, in Last Adam (Christ), temples of the Holy Spirit, slaves of righteousness, members of the body of Christ, as the wife (bride) of Christ, as the Father is in Christ.
