THE MOST BLESSED TRUTH

When I use the term, 'the most blessed truth', I mean a priceless reality that positions us to be supremely favoured beyond the natural. This blessed truth disposes us to function from a state of possibility or contentment that is beyond all cares and limitations of life. It also empowers us with the right perspective to live above the strictures and worries people have embraced outside Christ.

Reference: Romans 8:1-2 New King James Version (NKJV) 'There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. '


Child of God, did you know that there is no sin in God's record against you? Just as He sees no sin in Jacob, neither iniquity in Israel, so are you are justified in Christ forever. Now the most blessed truth is this: Every sin of the elect was laid upon Jesus, the great Champion of our salvation, and He carried all sins away by the atonement.


Are you preoccupied by, or paralyzed with an intense and overwhelming feeling of guilt? Have you been racked with guilt of sin? Hear this: Sin (and its guilt) has been dealt with by Christ Jesus on the cross. When the guilt of sin was taken away, the punishment of sin was removed also. Once you come to Christ and declare His Lordship over your life, then sin loses its power over your life. The Bible says, 'Sin is no longer your master, for you no longer live under the requirements of the law. Instead, you live under the freedom of God's grace' (Romans 6:14 NLT).


Two questions: Why and how did sin lose its hold on you? Why? Its because you have been saved by God's grace; you no longer have the nature of sin. Romans 10:9-10 (NIV) reads, 'If you declare with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.' Once you are saved, God justifies you.


How? You are in Christ and old things are passed away; thus you are not under the reign of sinful nature. The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV), 'Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.' This Scripture left no room for any sin. A new creature lacks "condemnation" and is totally free from any sin and its penalty. There is absolutely zero condemnation for those of us who have been created anew in Christ Jesus.


How could this be? Its a spiritual law. In Christ Jesus, God never condemns you for any sin whatsoever because whenever He sees you, He sees Christ's sacrifice and complete finished work which can never be edited. So the spiritual condition of this statement, however, is crucial and permanent. It can never be reversed. Now watch this: Romans 8:2 (NKJV) says, 'For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.' Did you notice its a law? 'For the law of the Spirit...' Spiritual laws are not ordinary laws. They are masterfully crafted in the spirit realm by the entities of the Divine, even before the foundation of the earth was laid.


Now this is beyond the most blessed truth: Romans 8:30 (NIV) reads, 'And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.' We are not only justified by God, He has also glorified us. To glorify is to make more elevated or special than just being justified. In other words, we've passed the realm of justification. We now function in the realm of glory. Therefore keep moving from glory to glory by God's Spirit. Hallelujah!


Scripture Reading - Psalm 34:22; Isaiah 54:17; John 3:17; Romans 5:18; Romans 8:33-34.


Guided Prayer: Dear heavenly Father, I joyfully honour you today because of Christ's sacrifice and righteous act which granted me the free gift of salvation, resulting in justification of life. Instead of condemnation by sin judgement, I'm saved, justified and set apart for the Kingdom. In Christ Jesus, I'm perfected and glorified, far above all sins and evil influences in this world and the world to come! Therefore, I give you all the glory and adoration, in Jesus' Name, Amen!
