You Have Authority ( by Fenny West)

You Have Authority 

In Jesus’ Name. 

Use it with audacity,

With no apology. 

 

Know who you are

And whose you are

And what you have in Christ. 

Deploy the whole armour of God. 

 Take your rightful place

Frustrate not the grace

Make full use of your inheritance. 

 

Use the sword of the Spirit – the Word. 

Stand resolutely on the infallible Word

You shall decree a thing and it shall be. 

Bind on earth and so shall it be. 

Loose on earth and so shall it be. 

 

17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;

18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”Mark16:17-18

CALLED TO HEAL ( by Fenny West)

CALLED TO HEAL

Called Heal
Empowered to heal
Ordained to heal
Anointed to heal.

The same Spirit
That raised Christ
From the dead
Dwells in me.
He does the work
I am joined to Him
My limbs are His limbs
I see through His eyes
He speaks through my mouth.
I go where He bids
Where I go, He goes
He reaches out His hands
through my Hands.

He has given me power and authority,

Over all the power and authority of the Devil,

and death, disease, sickness, weakness darkness, poverty, confusion and fear.

I fear no evil because He is with me, for me and in me. I fear no death because He defeated and abolished death. I have passed from death to life – Zoe-the God-kind of life. Abundant life is mine. All things are mine. I walk in the Light and endless possibilities. Nothing is impossible to me. He leads me in perpetual triumphal procession daily.
I am vibrant in my health and body and physique, robust in my mind, balanced in my emotions and relationship. My immune system is strong and all the systems in my body are well-aligned and function to the perfection they were made. There is no malfunction in my body or my mind.
My spirit is in tune with the Holy Spirit and continually receives strength from Him.
I am daily inspired by Him, guided by Him, taught by Him, comforted by Him, guarded by Him, directed by Him, given advantage by Him, shown things to come by Him, interceded for by Him and used to minister to others through Him.

“The last Adam.”
1 Corinthians 15:45

Jesus is the federal head of his elect. As in Adam, every heir of flesh and blood has a personal interest, because he is the covenant head and representative of the race as considered under the law of works; so under the law of grace, every redeemed soul is one with the Lord from heaven, since he is the Second Adam, the Sponsor and Substitute of the elect in the new covenant of love. The apostle Paul declares that Levi was in the loins of Abraham when Melchizedek met him: it is a certain truth that the believer was in the loins of Jesus Christ, the Mediator, when in old eternity the covenant settlements of grace were decreed, ratified, and made sure forever. Thus, whatever Christ hath done, he hath wrought for the whole body of his Church. We were crucified in him and buried with him (read Col. 2:10-13), and to make it still more wonderful, we are risen with him and even ascended with him to the seats on high (Eph. 2:6). It is thus that the Church has fulfilled the law, and is “accepted in the beloved.” It is thus that she is regarded with complacency by the just Jehovah, for he views her in Jesus, and does not look upon her as separate from her covenant head. As the Anointed Redeemer of Israel, Christ Jesus has nothing distinct from his Church, but all that he has he holds for her. Adam’s righteousness was ours so long as he maintained it, and his sin was ours the moment that he committed it; and in the same manner, all that the Second Adam is or does, is ours as well as his, seeing that he is our representative. Here is the foundation of the covenant of grace. This gracious system of representation and substitution, which moved Justin Martyr to cry out, “O blessed change, O sweet permutation!” this is the very groundwork of the gospel of our salvation, and is to be received with strong faith and rapturous joy.

The Magnificent Savior, The Lord Jesus Christ
  By Harold S. Martin

Unfolding the wonders of Jesus is an almost impossible job. Eternity itself cannot suffice completely to unfold Him. John the Baptist pointed out Jesus as the Lamb of God, baptized Him with the approval of heaven, and then said of Jesus, “He that cometh from above is above all” (John 3:31). Paul says to the Philippians, “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name: that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow…and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God…” (2:9-11).

    Jesus is the central subject of the Bible. Anyone who reads the Old Testament must surely see the many Scriptures that prophesy of Jesus to come, and as for the New Testament, Jesus Christ is everywhere on its pages. The very first verse of Matthew says, “The book of the generation of Jesus Christ,” and the very last verse of the Revelation says, “The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.”

    The first name in the first verse of the first book of the New Testament is Jesus, and the last name in the last chapter of the last book of the Bible is Jesus. What is it about Jesus that makes Him different from an ordinary man? What is it that makes Him unique and magnificent? Why is Jesus given such a prominent place in the Bible?

Jesus Is Magnificent as to His Eternal Source

Jesus did not begin to exist when He was born of Mary. John 17:5 says that Jesus had glory with the Father “before the world was,” and verse 24 says that He was loved by the Father before the foundation of the world. Jesus had been present with God in the eternal ages before the world began. The birth of Jesus in Bethlehem did not mark the beginning of a new person, but rather it marked the incarnation of the eternal Son of God who had been present with the Father and “was made flesh and dwelt among us” (John 1:14).

    Jesus did not begin to exist when He was born of Mary, for the Bible says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God” (John 1:1-2). And so we see that Jesus was the Son of God long before He became the son of Mary.

    Jesus was not just another man. He lived way back in the beginning when everything was started. In fact, before the beginning began, Jesus was. And because Jesus has always been with God, He knows all about us. He knows how we are made. He knows the secrets of our hearts; He knows our needs; and what’s more, being God, He is able to supply them all.

Jesus Is Magnificent as to His Miraculous Birth

    The Bible declares that our Lord’s mother was a virgin, that His conception was miraculous, and that the agent of conception was the Holy Spirit. The Bible says, “But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth His Son, made of a woman…” (Gal. 4:4). The birth of Jesus was no ordinary birth. When the Jewish virgin Mary went down into that mysterious land of motherhood, she came back holding in her arms the only baby in all the world who had never had an earthly father. No birth like this had ever occurred before; no birth like this will ever occur again. Jesus (who made man) was born in the likeness of men.

    If the birth of Jesus was not supernatural, then He cannot be our Savior, for then He was born a sinner like all the rest of us, and then He needs salvation Himself. But God was not limited to the ordinary. God is not bound by the laws of nature which we have discovered. One who takes away the supernatural conception of Jesus by the Holy Spirit (and puts Joseph there instead) takes away our only hope of a perfectly pure, sinless Savior. We cannot understand it, but we can believe it.

Jesus Is Magnificent as to His Perfect Life

Jesus was perfect God, and yet at the same time He was perfect man. As man, He hungered; as God, He is the Bread of Life. As man, He said, “I thirst” (John 19:28); as God, He says, “If any man thirst, let him come unto Me, and drink” (John 7:37). As man, He was weary; as God, He gives rest to all who come to Him. As man, He prayed; as God, He hears and answers our prayers. As man, He wept; as God, He wipes away our tears. As man, He was tempted; as God, He did not sin (1 Pet. 2:22).

    The life of no other man has been so carefully and so critically examined as the life of Jesus, yet men of all generations have confessed that Jesus was the only perfect Man who ever lived. Not a single time did He ever make a mistake. Not a single time did He ever utter a word that He had to take back. Not even His bitterest enemies, though they hounded His footsteps day and night to trap Him, could ever find anything for which to accuse Him.

    His own challenge in John 8:46 was this: “Which of you convinceth Me of sin?” The thief on the cross was compelled to admit, “This Man hath done nothing amiss” (Luke 23:41). Judas, the one who betrayed Him, came with the blood money and threw it at the feet of the Sanhedrin, saying, “I have betrayed the innocent blood” (Matt. 27:4). And Pilate, the one who sat in the judgment seat and passed sentence on Him, three times over declared, “I find no fault in Him” (John 18, 19). Every man has some good points but Jesus has them all!

Jesus Is Magnificent as to His Supernatural Power

   Jesus has such mighty power that when Peter drew the sword and slashed off the ear of the high priest’s servant, Jesus immediately touched the ear, and it was healed. And no marvel, for actually He created the ear in the first place. John says in 1:3, “All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made.” Who conceived the grace of the young deer? Who devised the majesty of the mountains? Who put the song in the throat of the mockingbird? One name answers all these questions, the precious name of Jesus.

    When He stood before the disciples on the Mount of Olives (just before He ascended into heaven), Jesus said, “All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth” (Matt. 28:18). Jesus walked on the waves, stilled the storms, healed the lepers, raised the dead, and opened the eyes of the blind.

    Jesus meets every need. He satisfies every desire. He hushes every fear. He calms every trouble. He is the Rose of Sharon, the Lily of the Valley, the Balm of Gilead, the Fairest of ten thousand to the soul. He created the worlds. He changes the destiny of nations. He has the power over death and disease. The Bible says that even the wind and the sea obey Him!

Jesus Is Magnificent as to Authoritative Teaching

Matthew says at the close of the Sermon on the Mount, “And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at His doctrine; for He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes” (7:28-29). The scribes were the learned men and teachers of the Jewish nation. They were largely Pharisees who taught chiefly the sentiments of the rabbis and the traditions which had been handed down from the fathers. They spent much of their time in vain disputes and in quoting authorities.

    But Jesus of Nazareth spoke so differently. There was an air of complete and final authority about all that He said. He never said, “It is probably this way,” or “Consult the experts on the subject.” Jesus Christ is the authority on every subject! Jesus over and over again said, “But I say unto you,” not, “So-and-so said.”

Jesus Is Magnificent as to His Sacrificial Suffering

Great men of this world may be valued for their lives, but Jesus is known above all for His death. The atonement of Jesus is the scarlet cord running through every part of the Bible. His death was prophesied in the Garden of Eden. His death was pictured in the sacrifices of Israel. Jesus spoke of His death when He said, “For this cause came I into the world” (John 18:37).

    There are 255 verses in the New Testament that refer directly to the death of Christ. One fifth of the Gospel according to Matthew, and almost one half of John’s Gospel record the last week leading up to the Cross. The death of Jesus Christ is of supreme value. On that afternoon when the sky was darkened and the sun hid its face and the veil of the temple was rent in twain and the Son of God cried out, “It is finished” – on that great day, the price of our redemption was paid.

    And now, because of His magnificent suffering, Jesus can reach down into the pit of corruption and lift the sinner up from the miry clay and wash him white in the fountain filled with blood drawn from Emmanuel’s veins.

    It was no ordinary death that Jesus died – that was God Almighty taking upon Himself the sin of a fallen race. “He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities…the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all” (Isa. 53:5-6). Jesus bore my sins in His own body on the tree. Jesus stood where I should have stood. The pains of hell that were my portion were heaped upon Him.

Jesus Is Magnificent as to His Promised Return

  As surely as Jesus came the first time, so certain is it that He will come again. One of these days this magnificent, wonderful, incomparable Jesus will come in all His glory, and all His holy angels with Him. In the 260 chapters of the New Testament the Second Coming of Jesus is mentioned 318 times. Jesus Himself said, “Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not” (Luke 12:40).

    When Jesus comes again in power and great glory, He will be the judge from heaven who will “bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil” (Eccl. 12:14). The books will be opened; the secrets of all hearts will be brought to light. Those who have been faithful servants will be taken home to the Father’s house (John 14:1-3).

    Jesus is the Light of the world, the Bread of Life, the True Vine, the Good Shepherd, the Door to heaven. This Jesus whom we love and serve is peerless, matchless, incomparable, magnificent. He has no equal! He is above all! There is no other that can be compared with Him!

    The question we must honestly face right now is the one concerning His supremacy in our lives. Where have you placed this magnificent Jesus whom God has highly exalted? Are you giving Him the highest place? Jesus is supreme in every other realm; how can we forbid Him complete reign over the little empire of our hearts?

    And if you have never accepted Him, if you have been saying, “I want to run my own life, I want to paddle my own canoe, I want to be king of my own castle,” remember this: There is a day coming when every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God.

    During the trial of Jesus, Pilate raised the question, “What shall I do then with Jesus who is called Christ?” (Matt. 27:22). That is the question you need to answer today. What will you do with Jesus? Your answer will determine your eternal destiny. You are either going to be forever with Him or forever without Him. If you reject Him all your life and die without Him, the question someday will be not, “What shall I do with Jesus?” but “What will He do with me?” Believe the Gospel, repent and be baptized today!

You have Authority ( by Fenny West )

You Have Authority

 

in the beginning God stars awesome god eagle  coming eagle God's plan call on me reach out and touch
You have authority
Over every infirmity
Authority over penury and poverty
Authority over insanity;
Authority over powers,
dominions and principalities.

You have authority over mediocrity,
Conspiracy and hegemony;
Authority over matrimonial acrimony;
Authority over timidity.
You have authority –
Authority over the enemy.
Why
Because regardless of how you feel,
what you hear or what you see,
at the helm is the Master of the Sea.

Now personalise this reality confession
Until you see the manifestation.

I have authority over:
Infirmity, disability, penury and poverty.
I have authority over insanity
Powers, thrones, dominion and principalities
I have authority over mediocrity, conspiracy and hegemony.
I have authority over
Matrimonial acrimony and disunity in the Body
I have authority over
Dysfunctionality and infamy.

Therefore, I exercise my authority over infirmity, sickness and disease, because Jesus took my infirmity and sin when He died on Calvary’s Cross. And by His stripes I was healed.(1Pet2:24, Isa53:4-5, Matt8:16)
I exercise my authority over penury and poverty because Jesus, although He was rich, for my sake He became poor that I through His poverty might become rich. It is written: Beloved I wish that thou mayest prosper and be in health even as thy soul prospers. God delights in the prosperity of His servants. 2Cor8:9, 2Cor9:8, 3Jn2, Josh1:8, Ps1:1-3,Prov35:27, Ps25:12-13
I exercise my authority over insanity because God has not given me a spirit of insanity but that of sanity and sound mind; It is written: We have the mind of Christ. I am renewed in the spirit of my mind. And whatsoever is just, pure , true, of a good report, is admirable, honest, praise-worthy, I think on such things. Phil4:8, Rom12:2, Phil2:5, 1Cor2:16, Prov23:7, 2Tim1:7
I exercise my authority over powers, dominions and principalities because Christ disarmed principalities and powers and made a public spectacle of them even through the cross. He gave me authority and dominion to reign in this life. He gave me authority over the power of the enemy, to trample them under my feet. I am more than a conqueror through Christ and if God be for me, who can be against me? Luke10:19, Col2:15 Rom8:31,37
Mediocrity is not my portion. Good has created me for excellence- marvellous work that will bring honour and glory to His name. So I have the ability to rise above mediocrity into excellence. I can do all things through Christ, Who strengthens me, It is He Who works in me both to will and to do according to His good pleasure. I shall serve Him with all my mind, might and heart.
Col3:17,23, Phil2:13, Phil4:13, Acts1:8
Dominion lost has been regained. Therefore I exercise this dominion over any hegemony, conspiracy or confederacy orchestrated against me in the spirit realm. When they gather against me God will scatter them. No weapon formed against me shall prosper and every tongue that rises against me in judgment I will show to be in the wrong. When the enemy comes like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will raise a standard against him. Gen1:26, Rom5:17
Matrimonial acrimony is not my portion. Therefore, I come against every spirit of marital disunity and acrimony. My home shall experience the peace of God that transcends all understanding.
Harmony and symphony shall prevail in my home. We shall maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. We shall dwell together in unity and see God command His blessings on our home. Ps133:1,3, Eph4:3, Acts2:1-4
Every spirit of timidity is disallowed in my life. God has not given me the spirit of timidity but that of boldness, love, power and sound mind. Perfect love cast away all fear. It is the wicked who flee when no one pursues. The righteous are as bold as the lion. 2Tim1:7, Heb4:16, Acts 2:13,29
God has called me to a life of Grace super-abundant and not a life of disgrace. Therefore infamy is not my portion but a life that will give glory to God. A city on a hill, that is me. A light of the world, that’s me. A salt of the earth, that’s me. Matt5:13-16
I exercise my authority over the enemy who has come to steal, kill and destroy. Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. Whoever is born of God overcomes this world. And this is the victory that overcomes this world, even my faith, in Jesus’ name. Amen

Now act like the word of God is true, because it is. God is not a man that He should lie. Put His word to work, Step on the water of His word. Heaven and earth shall pass away but the word of God abides forever.

 

19        Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Luke 10:19

 

15   And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.

16   He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.

17   And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;

18   they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

Christ Ascends to God’s Right Hand

Mark16:16-18

“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.

19   Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

20   teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

Matt28:18-20

1          And when He had called His twelve disciples to Him, He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease. Matt10:1

All He has Are Ours

All He has are ours

But we can go poor

Without the knowledge

Of what He purchased-

Lord, open my eyes

That I may behold;

Fully comprehend

All that you have done.

Help me to appropriate

All that is for me in Christ.

 

You lavished your love

Paid a great price

When you came from above

O that I will rise

And take my place-

The place foreordained

Before the world began.

“…These many years I have been serving you…yet you never gave me a young goat that I might make merry with my friends. But as soon as this son of yours came, who has devoured your livelihood with harlots, you killed the fatted calf for him.” And [his father] said to him, “Son…all that I have is yours”‘ (Luke 15:29-31 NKJV).

Because the elder brother’s ignorance of whom he was, he did not enjoy what was available to him. He lived in the lap of luxury, yet he was poor.  How pathetic! Many of us are living below what Christ has purchased for us on Calvary’s cross because of our lack of knowledge.

 6         My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Hosea4:6

 2     Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord,

3     as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue,

4     by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

2Pet1:

 Redemption in Christ

3     Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,

4     just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love,

5     having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,

6     to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.

7     In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace

8          which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence,Eph1:3-8

3     Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you, as I said to Moses.

Josh1:3

19        Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.Luke10:19

17   And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;

18   they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

Mark16:18

 9     But as it is written: ” Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

1Cor2:9

 We are Children of God.

 16   The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, Rom8:16

 1     Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.

2     Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. 1 John 3:

 We are heir of God and joint heirs with Christ

 17        and if children, then heirs — heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together. Rom8:17

 We have an advocate in Christ

1 John 2:

1     My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.

 

We are forgiven

9     If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.1John1:9

 We have the Holy Spirit as our standby, Guide, Intercessor, Friend, Teacher, Strengthener, comforter, advocate, purifier, refiner and helper

7     Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you. John16:7

 Answers to Prayer

7     If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.

John15:7

Confidence and Compassion in Prayer

14   Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.

15   And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.1John5:14-15

 25   Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.Heb7:25

 16   Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

Heb:4:16

 26   Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

27   Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.Rom8:26-27

 We are co-workers with God

9          For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building.1Cor3:9

 We are more than conquerors

Romans 8

37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

 The Greater one indwells us

Rom8:37

4          You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 1John4:4

  

We are overcomers. We are victors

 4     For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world — our faith.1John5:4

 

There are marvellous things in us in Christ

6     that the sharing of your faith may become effective by the acknowledgment of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus. Phil1:6

 

 Christ dwells in our hearts and His love is boundless

17   that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,

18   may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height —

19   to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.Eph1:17-19

 We have been Brought Near in Him

 12   that at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.

13   But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.

 We have peace In Christ

Christ Our Peace

14   For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation,

EPh2:14

 Christ in us-Hope of Glory

 27   To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Col1:27

 We were crucified in Him and been raised with Him

 20   I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. Gal2:20

 Christ is our righteousness, sanctification, redemption

 30   But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God — and righteousness and sanctification and redemption1Cor 1:30

 If God be for us, no one can be against us

31   What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? Rom8:31

 We are seated with Him in heavenly places

5     even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),

6     and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, EPhe2:5-6

 We are New Creatures

17   Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.2Cor517

 We are His workmanship, His masterpiece, created for good works

10        For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.Eph2:10

 We are His ambassadors

 20        Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.

 Believers Are Salt and Light

13   “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.

14   “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.

15   Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.

16   Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.Matt5:13-16

All He Has Are Yours

In Christ- our inheritanceAll that He Has Are Yours

Isaiah 49:8

I will give thee for a covenant of the people.

C.H. Spurgeon

Jesus Christ is Himself the sum and substance of the covenant, and as one of its gifts. He is the property of every believer. Believer, canst thou estimate what thou hast gotten in Christ? “In Him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.”

 Consider that word “God” and its infinity, and then meditate upon “perfect man” and all his beauty; for all that Christ, as God and man, ever had, or can have, is thine-out of pure free favour, passed over to thee to be thine entailed property forever. Our blessed Jesus, as God, is omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent. Will it not console you to know that all these great and glorious attributes are altogether yours?

Has he power? That power is yours to support and strengthen you, to overcome your enemies, and to preserve you even to the end.

 Has He love? Well, there is not a drop of love in His heart which is not yours; you may dive into the immense ocean of His love, and you may say of it all, “It is mine.”

 Hath He justice? It may seem a stern attribute, but even that is yours, for He will by His justice see to it that all which is promised to you in the covenant of grace shall be most certainly secured to you.

 And all that He has as perfect man is yours. As a perfect man the Father’s delight was upon Him. He stood accepted by the Most High. O believer, God’s acceptance of Christ is thine acceptance; for knowest thou not that the love which the Father set on a perfect Christ, He sets on thee now? For all that Christ did is thine. That perfect righteousness which Jesus wrought out, when through His stainless life He kept the law and made it honourable, is thine, and is imputed to thee. Christ is in the covenant.

“My God, I am thine-what a comfort divine!

What a blessing to know that the Saviour is mine!

In the heavenly Lamb thrice happy I am,

And my heart it doth dance at the sound of His name.”
