Wednesday's Words To
Live By For May 30th – June 5th
Carried ‘It’ All In His Body” Part II
Scriptures: Isaiah 53:3-5 & Romans 8:1-12
Hello Everyone, I have a brief message to post first before the teaching for this week. We will continue our "Wednesday's Words to
Live By" for this month and then we will take a break for summer vacation
beginning June 6th thru October 1st; I know during the summer most people go on
vacation or spend more time with their families. Plus, I am taking some time off
to try and finish these four books I have started on:) and I am going out of
town for about two weeks for some rest:). I pray you all have a blessed and safe
summer and stay connected to God whatever you do; don't get to busy and forget
about Him. If anyone need to contact me during the time above, you can still
reach me via email.
Isaiah 53:3-5 – (www.biblegateway.com – Amplified)
3He was despised and rejected and forsaken by men, a Man of
sorrows and pains, and acquainted with grief and sickness; and like One from
Whom men hide their faces He was despised, and we did not appreciate His worth
or have any esteem for Him.
4Surely He has borne our griefs (sicknesses, weaknesses, and
distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains
[of punishment], yet we [ignorantly] considered Him stricken, smitten, and
afflicted by God [as if with leprosy].
5But He was
wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities;
the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him,
and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole.
8:1-12 – (www.biblegateway.com – Amplified)
1THEREFORE, [there is] now no condemnation (no adjudging
guilty of wrong) for those who are in Christ Jesus, who live [and] walk not
after the dictates of the flesh, but after the dictates of the Spirit.
2For the law of the
Spirit of life [which is] in Christ Jesus [the law of our new being] has freed
me from the law of sin and of death.
3For God has done what
the Law could not do, [its power] being weakened by the flesh [the entire
nature of man without the Holy Spirit]. Sending His own Son in the guise of
sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, [God] condemned sin in the flesh
[subdued, overcame, deprived it of its power over all who accept that
4So that the righteous
and just requirement of the Law might be fully met in us who live and move not
in the ways of the flesh but in the ways of the Spirit [our lives governed not
by the standards and according to the dictates of the flesh, but controlled by
the Holy Spirit].
5For those who are
according to the flesh and are controlled by its unholy desires set their minds
on and pursue those things which gratify the flesh, but those who are
according to the Spirit and are controlled by the desires of the Spirit set
their minds on and seek those things which gratify the [Holy] Spirit.
6Now the mind of the
flesh [which is sense and reason without the Holy Spirit] is death [death
that comprises all the miseries arising from sin, both here and hereafter].
But the mind of the [Holy] Spirit is life and [soul] peace [both now and
7[That is] because the
mind of the flesh [with its carnal thoughts and purposes] is hostile to God,
for it does not submit itself to God's Law; indeed it cannot.
8So then those who are
living the life of the flesh [catering to the appetites and impulses of their
carnal nature] cannot please or satisfy God, or be acceptable to Him.
9But you are not living
the life of the flesh, you are living the life of the Spirit, if the [Holy]
Spirit of God [really] dwells within you [directs and controls you]. But if
anyone does not possess the [Holy] Spirit of Christ, he is none of His [he does
not belong to Christ, is not truly a child of God].
10But if Christ lives in you,
[then although] your [natural] body is dead by reason of sin and guilt, the
spirit is alive because of [the] righteousness [that He imputes to you].
11And if the Spirit of Him
Who raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, [then] He Who raised up Christ
Jesus from the dead will also restore to life your mortal (short-lived,
perishable) bodies through His Spirit Who dwells in you.
12So then, brethren, we
are debtors, but not to the flesh [we are not obligated to our carnal nature],
to live [a life ruled by the standards set up by the dictates] of the flesh.
In the last part of this teaching, I want to
talk specifically to people who have been abused as a child. You are no longer
a victim of child abuse, child molestation, child abandonment, child neglect,
rejection, or anything else you suffered as a child.
Prayer for you
I come against those spirits that keep trying to
remind you of the childhood trauma you suffered in the Name of Jesus and
command those spirits and every spirit that is associated with them to go where
Jesus tell them to go, no more will they torment you. I ask Jesus to cover your
minds and hearts with His blood and give you peace in every area of your lives.
I bind the fear that torments you in the Name of Jesus and fear I command you
to go from these people’s lives NOW, by the power and authority Jesus has given
me. You spirit of fear will not torment them ever again because God did not
give them the spirit of fear but of love, power, and a sound mind. I ask this
Father in the Name of Jesus, the Name that is above every other name, Amen.
If you are one who was
abused as a child, you must rise up and not allow that childhood abuse (any
form) to stop you from going forth in God. You are NOT the blame for the abuse
that happened to you! Don’t allow that thing to continue to be a crutch for
you! Submit yourselves totally to God and then you will be able to resist the
devil and he must flee from you (James
4:7). But the devil will never flee as long as you continue to have your
pity parties and cry “Oh me, oh my.” Take up your sick beds and walk in the
liberty that Christ has set you free! Now is the time! Stop allowing the devil
to remind you of where you came from or how you were abused! It is YOUR
responsibility to stop him! God has given you everything you need to defeat the
enemy in your mind. 2 Corinthians 10:4-5
says the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for the
pulling down of strongholds; casting down arguments and every high thing that
exalts itself against the knowledge of God. You are to bring every thought captive to the
obedience of Christ.
When the enemy brings
those thoughts of what you went through as a child to your mind, refute them
with the Word of God instead of agreeing with him; don’t let the enemy talk to
you! Jesus has already given you the victory over everything in your past! Stop
using your childhood drama to play out in your present life so people can feel
sorry for you. Also, don’t use what happened in your childhood as an excuse so
you can feel sorry for yourself; neither of these is going to help you but they
will hinder your growth in God and keep you from moving on with your life – you
will stay stuck in the past. You will hinder your future by stopping yourself
from living the God best life; the abundant life Jesus died for you to live! Stop It! Move past that pain,
frustration, drama, stress, etc. and begin to live your abundant life. Make the
decision now, today, this minute, to choose life; the life Jesus died so you
could live. Start by repenting to God for being in agreement with the devil by
allowing those thoughts from your childhood to dominate your present life.
Do not allow the devil
to continue to have a foothold in your life. When those thoughts first come to
your mind, rebuke them!
You are not a victim of childhood abuse or any
other type of abuse so I come against that victim mindset with the blood of
Jesus and in the Name of Jesus and command it to be broken from you, it will no
longer have any power over you, in the Name of Jesus, Amen!
You are victorious through Christ in every area
of your life. You have the mind of Christ so act like it! Don’t allow the devil
to deceive you into remaining a victim. Stop allowing things to defeat you! You
are more than a conqueror through Christ who loves you (Romans 8:37); embrace the love of Christ and walk in His strength.
Remember, you can do all things through Christ
who strengthens you (Philippians 4:13)
but without Him you can do nothing (John
15:5); get connected and stay connected to the Vine (God).
