See the Lion and the Lamb

As we began considering the power and authority behind the proclamations of truth God has made in Jesus, I found that I have carried around some things that were in total opposition to  Jesus’ work. I had let a natural thinking (power), rationally get me to let go of heavenly promises that are mine by right. I walked around with little lies that I took on good authority simply because it reflected certain things about my current state. The kind of stuff in life that makes you go ” Well, that’s you right there, buddy!! Deal with it”

Jesus is our life. Apart from Him we can do nothing (John 15). This simple truth is proclaimed over our lives by the One with all the REAL power and authority in all creation. He is the life-giver and sustainer. Let’s consider just that and then turn over to Christ every part that we’ve been cheated into relegating to trash heap of lost causes. Do you see how sinister and quiet our enemy is in his scheming to have us let go of more and more of our birthright in God?

Jesus, the lamb of God, satisfied God the Father fully on our behalf. The only one with all power and authority is no longer our enemy (Romans 4-5). He is on our side. Jesus, The Lion of the tribe of Judah has risen with power and has disarmed every enemy (Revelation 5:5) ; He has been given the name above every other name. All of heaven’s power and authority is now backing the children of God by new birth (Your birthright kicks in here). The church of God who individually and collectively say ” Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is heaven (in my life, my family, my church, my community, the world)

I’m looking forward to taking more ground in the coming weeks.
God bless you,
