I heard, “Get Ready! I AM calling you out of the crowd.”
It is a moment where we are going up by Revelation. We cannot rise if we go the way of sight at this moment, since the enemy has laid hold on that.
Hence, we are going up by The Revelation of The LORD, we are rising with our natural eyes closed by The Faith of God.
Yes, we will be looking at something very wonderful, we will be gleaning from The Book of Galatians. My life was transformed the moment I had an encounter with The LORD through this book. My entire Theology of Salvation changed and I hope this will be a blessing to you too.
Now the book of Galatians was written by the Apostle Paul to the Churches of Galatia, and it deals fully with the subject of The Gospel. We are told what The Gospel is, and how to live after we have received The Gospel.
In the third to fifth verses of the first chapter, he opens up with this salutation;
“Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our LORD Jesus Christ, Who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil world, according to The Will of God and our Father: To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen,” Galatians 1:3-5.
Yes, he says grace and peace to you from the The Father and from our LORD Jesus Christ, then something powerful is introduced in the fourth verse, it says, “Who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver from this present evil world…”
What is the connection between the forgiveness of sins and our being delivered from this present evil wold?
The gift of the Forgiveness of Sins comes with every needed deliverance. Sin got us alienated from God. We were disconnected from the life of God;
“Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart,”Ephesians 4:18.
But through the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus we have been united to God. How we are delivered from this present evil world is through the life of Jesus that was given for us. He gave himself for our salvation from sin and this present evil world.
Now we have the God life on our inside. We are born from above, hence we have overcome the world by reason of the new birth.
“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world,”1 John 4:4.
Today I cannot be defeated, I cannot be held down by the elements of this world. I have overcome the legal dispensation with its fleshly commandments, I have overcome the wicked one with all his host, I have overcome the world and all its evil elements, I am a world over-comer.
Now observe again the last statement from the fourth verse of Galatians one. It says, “this present evil world….”
The life of Jesus has set us free from this present, this very evil world. As a Christian, if I believe this and keep it a good confession of it, it is activated in my life.
The elements of this world are becoming more evil daily, the world is growing darker and darker. Our air is polluted with evil elements, sicknesses and diseases are everywhere. Wicked men and wicked inventions are arising daily.
But we are told “we are delivered from this present evil world by the forgiveness of our sins through the life of Jesus which was given for us.
Are your sins forgiven? Then you must also see that the life that was given to procure for you forgiveness has also delivered you from this present evil world. If your heart can believe this, you will forever live a delivered lifestyle.
Then the last part of the fourth verse says, “according to The Will of God and our Father…”
Now we all know that the Jews killed the Prince of life;
“But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you; and killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses,” Acts 3:14-15.
But all this was according to the determinate counsel of God. Jesus laid down His Life by The Will of The Father and the Romans and Jews did only what The Hand of God and His Counsel had already determined.
In other words, the Jews and the Gentiles were the hands God used to sacrifice Jesus to His own Justice, so that you and I be exempted from His Justice and be set free from this present evil world.
“For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together, for to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done,”Acts 4:27-28.
Hence, today God’s will for me and you is to live delivered why we are here. He has already paid the price and all of this is to the glory of his name, even for ever more.
“To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen,” Galatians 1:5.
We will continue our gleaning tomorrow…
In an encounter with The LORD; I saw a crowd people, then I saw one person who was called out and given a post over the people. Then I saw a again another person called out to assist the one given a post over he people in managing the funds.
As I saw this I was reminded of the story of Pharaoh over Egypt and Joseph.
“Let Pharaoh do this, and let him appoint officers over the land, and take up the fifth part of the land of Egypt in the seven plenteous years…..
…. And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath shewed thee all this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou art: Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than thou,”Genesis 41:34,39-40.
Then The LORD said,“Get ready, I AM calling you out of the crowd to the place of authority, the place of your destiny. You have tasted the furnace of the Fire, but now is your moment of promotion.
I AM giving you Wisdom to understand Financial Management, for I AM committing abundance into your hands this season.”
Blessings in Christ,
