I heard, “I have promoted you to the place of fulfilling your destiny.”
A great light has come upon us! A great and effectual door is opened which is the reason for the resistance.
If there ever has been a time to go forward, I tell you the truth now is the time. Its a season of breakthroughs and miracles.

We have talked on righteousness for the past two days, but a lot of people find it difficult even when clearly expounded to accept The Free Gift of Righteousness, because something in them still deceives them: you can be righteous outside of Jesus and use Jesus as an icing on the cake.
Some may not say it that way, but at the core of what they do, this is the explanation.
First we must understand what sin is. We are told what sin is, in the first letter of John:
“Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law,” 1 John 3:4.
Since sin is the breaking of The Law, let me show us a little of what God has commanded and expects of us if we are to live by The Law.
God commands us to do whatsoever we know is good. If we fail to do it — then it is sin.
“Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin,” James 4:17..
By the standard of the above Word, sin is not just doing what is wrong, but failing to do what is good, is also sin.
How many of us know it is good to daily evangelise Jesus to the world? How many of us are daily doing it?
We keep passing unbelievers by at street corners without saying a word, but Jesus was always all about His Father’s business.
How many of us know feeding the poor and catering for windows and orphans is good? Most of us our monthly budgets do not have any of these on the list. Its only me, Micky and Joey on the list….
Everything that we know is good we are commanded to always do or else we are sinning against a holy God
Are you walking in perfect faith? For there is a law that says whatsoever is not of faith is sin.
“And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin,” Romans 14:23.
How many of us live in doubt daily and think we are pleasing God?
How many of us are so fearful today about the temptations in the world?
If your faith is not moving mountains, if there is fear around you, if you are not acting in faith in everything you do in your life, then you are sinning against a righteous God.
Most people do not know that fear is sin. Fear is one of the sins many will go to hell, who live in it.
“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death,” Revelation 21:8 emphasis added.
Ask yourself — if Jesus were on the earth today, will he wear a mask around for protection, or will He, by faith, walk around freely healing others?
But I thought you said you are righteous outside of Jesus?
There are 613 Laws in the Bible and look what The Word says;
“For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all,” James 2:10.
Miss just one you are guilty of all. It is not a selection of the ones that appeals to your flesh and make you look good before a people! Just miss a little, just a little, and you are off under the wrath of The Law.
This is why God says, everyone attempting the keeping of The Law — is cursed:
“For as many as are of the works of The Law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in The Book of The Law to do them. But that no man is justified by The Law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, the just shall live by faith,” Galatians 3:10-11 emphasis added.
Thank God for Jesus, Who became a curse for us that the curse of we not keeping The Law, might be on Him and the blessing of Abraham, come on us.
“Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith,” Galatians 3:13-14.
Any time you intend to earn God’s blessings by what you do, you have left the place of Faith. Faith and works are antagonistic.
Faith and The Law are contrary to each other. Where there is the keeping of The Law, there is no Jesus, and where there is Jesus, there no keeping of The Law.
The Law is not of faith and whatsoever is not of faith is sin. Today a lot of people are offending The Cross without knowing it.
“And the law is not of faith: but, the man that doeth them shall live in them,” Galatians 3:12.
The Law was given to lead us to Christ. It was given to condemn us so we can accept the free gift of salvation by grace.
Before Jesus came, we thought it was possible to be right with God through our works. So The Law was given to deal with us, to humble us and lead us to the way out — which is Jesus.
“Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster,” Galatians 3:24-25.
Hallelujah! We are under grace, we are now created righteous and the law is no longer for a righteous man. We are justified by Faith in Jesus.
“Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,” 1 Timothy 1:9.
In an encounter with The LORD; I saw a Christian and I saw that God had declared she is established on a new level.
But I saw The LORD asking her to live in forgiveness to those she has been promoted above, who had offended her before her promotion. The LORD said it was “a preparation.”
Coming out I was led to the story of Joseph and his brothers:
“But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive. Now therefore fear ye not: I will nourish you, and your little ones. And he comforted them, and spake kindly unto them,” Genesis 50:20-21.
Then The LORD said, “It was a set up, It was a build up for the weight of The Glory upon you. I had to teach you to walk in My Love.
I allowed the evil to happen to you for your good. Now you carry a weight of My Glory through experience to help save others.
Speak kindly to your offenders, forgive them, nourish them, comfort them — for through their envy, I have promoted you to the place of fulfilling your destiny.”
Blessings in Christ,
