STAYING TRUE AND FAITHFUL TO GOD
As the Body of Christ and as ministers of Christ, we need to understand fully that Jesus Christ’s mission on this earth was more than to die on the cross of Calvary. That was only part of His mission of salvation. Jesus came here for a purpose. What had been lost to man in the Garden of Eden and wrestled from him through temptation, God sent Jesus to reclaim. For that responsibility Jesus came in the form of the Second Adam to face the same temptations and to face the same enemy that the first Adam faced. When Jesus came face to face with the enemy, even though He was God Incarnate, He was 100 percent man. The Bible says that this was so that He could be taken from among men, that He might one day qualify to be the High Priest of every man and every woman.
Wherefore in all things it behoved Him to be made like unto His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.”
Jesus Christ now sits at the right hand of God in the heavenlies as our High Priest. Because Jesus prevailed as man, He is able to succor those in need today. 18 For in that He Himself hath suffered being tempted, He is able to succor them that are tempted. Heb. 2:18
There is no place for negativity or uncertainty on the battlefield for God. We must face the enemy with the authority of God…God working in us…and defeat with the weapons God has provided us. “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh. 4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds). 5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. 2 Cor. 10:3-5
We have spoken of Jesus Christ as our parallel in working the works of God. We have noted the fact that God gave Jesus authority, that He sent Him here for a purpose, and that He gave Him Divine authority to carry out His responsibility and purpose. Jesus testified of this.
18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.”
REMINDER: STAYING TRUE AND FAITHFUL TO GOD!!! HE IS FAITHFUL TO THE FAITHFUL!!!
Love you and the Blessings of God be upon you.
