  1. Let us turn our eyes to Jesus Dear family of God and what The Lord has already done. I see the division that is hurting us. We forget that The Lord has called us to something new and has said “Forget the former things do not dwell in the past” Isaiah 43:18.

    What did The Lord mean? He continues:
    “For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland. The wild animals in the fields will thank me, the jackals and owls, too, for giving them water in the desert. Yes, I will make rivers in the dry wasteland so my chosen people can be refreshed. I have made Israel for myself, and they will someday honor me before the whole world. (‭Isaiah‬ ‭43‬:‭19-21‬ NLT)

    The Apostle Paul revealed the meaning of this scripture and what it was that the Lord meant in terms of not looking back and forgetting the former things! The Lord was talking about the way of the law as the former thing!! Paul writes:
    “The old way, with laws etched in stone, led to death, though it began with such glory that the people of Israel could not bear to look at Moses’ face. For his face shone with the glory of God, even though the brightness was already fading away. Shouldn’t we expect far greater glory under the new way, now that the Holy Spirit is giving life? If the old way, which brings condemnation, was glorious, how much more glorious is the new way, which makes us right with God! In fact, that first glory was not glorious at all compared with the overwhelming glory of the new way. (‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭3‬:‭7-10‬ NLT)

    Paul was talking about not looking to the law which condemns but to The Spirit of God which brings life. He was talking about the Lords grace and favor and as The prophet Isaiah points The Lord’s people to the streams of the Spirit of a God that will refresh us and guide us.
    Brothers and sisters, Satan was disarmed at the cross because our sins have been forgiven and we are under grace not the law. Jesus the perfect sacrifice who is fully man and fully God fulfilled the entire law. So when we use the law to condemn each other, we arm Satan to accuse both the one you accuse and yourself. For none can boast in our works.  But if we point to the cross and take ownership of the righteous we recieved from God, Satan is disarmed. For Jesus is perfect and his righteousness unable to be attacked. So when we point to his work on the cross, we can stand confident before God in that we are forgiven because he died for our sins and atoned for them because of His righteousness. A divine exchange took place at the cross. He took all we deserved which was condemnation for our unrighteousness and sin, guilt and shame so we would recieve his favor, his righteousness, and all He deserved.  Under the law we are condemned because of our sinful nature and we couldn’t for fill its mandates. And as a result since we couldn’t for fill the entire law it condemned us. Remember the young man that came to Jesus who said ““Teacher,” the man replied, “I’ve obeyed all these commandments since I was young.” (‭Mark‬ ‭10‬:‭20‬ NLT
    “Looking at the man, Jesus felt genuine love for him. “There is still one thing you haven’t done,” he told him. “Go and sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” At this the man’s face fell, and he went away sad, for he had many possessions. (‭Mark‬ ‭10‬:‭21-22‬ NLT)

    Under the law, there is always something you in sinful flesh will always lack. The Lord saw this young man’s heart, his zealousness for God. However, you can’t please The Lord under the law. You will always fall short. Can we boast, then, that we have done anything to be accepted by God? No, because our acquittal is not based on obeying the law. It is based on faith. (‭Romans‬ ‭3‬:‭27‬ NLT)As the Scriptures say, “No one is righteous— not even one. No one is truly wise; no one is seeking God. All have turned away; all have become useless. No one does good, not a single one.” (‭Romans‬ ‭3‬:‭10-12‬ NLT)
    So let us recieve his marvelous grace! The Lord’s righteousness is a gift, unmerited. All you can do is recieve. Under grace we are empowered by the Spirit of the Living God! Rejoice in our Savior Jesus our King and Lord! So let us not use to law to condemn for we are only are condemning ourselves, for bible says ”
    For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. (‭Romans‬ ‭3‬:‭23‬ NLT)
    Let us encourage each other that the Father so loved us He sent his beautiful son Jesus, and has called us ,His people and made provision for our sins through His son. Let’s behold The Lord Jesus and be transformed into His likeness!!

    May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. (‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭13‬:‭14‬ NLT)

  2. “I don’t agree the pastors message…” A balanced message is important. It is a scriptural command – 1 Thessalonians 5:21
    We are told – Hebrews 5:14
    While their are some great pastors. Dereck Prince , Art Katz , Leonard Ravenhill and even R.W . SCHAMBACH IN THE BOOK GOD SPEAKS TO PASTORS . As a sum state a large majority in all their travels though having churches ministries big and small with or without bible degrees. as a sum only 50 or 60 % where any of the fivefold ministry that is set AND CREATED TO BE BY GOD. the rest where false fallen or just men putting themselves in that ministry and building it themselves. mindless obedience and acceptance is not NEW TESTAMENT CHRISTIANITY. WRONG JUDGMENT IS ONE THING BUT EVEN JESUS SAID AS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH SO SHALL IT BE AT HIS COMING. MANY REMEBER NOAH FOR THE ARK BUT GOD SAID NOAH WAS A PREACHER OF RIGHTEOUSNESS….
