Perfectly Perfect


There is a saying that I keep hearing/seeing in just about every other Twitter bio or Facebook status. And it reads, “I am not perfect”.
As if to say our imperfections as humans make us more relatable to each other.

If we are believers who follow Christ shouldn’t we be standing on-
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature:old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

And if we stand on 2 Corinthians 5:17 then aren’t we made perfect through what Jesus did on the cross? By faith in what Jesus has done aren’t we now justified?

Shouldn’t we be looking from the cross at the finished works of Jesus? Is it just me who challenges the old mind set that says ;I’m just an old sinner saved by grace?

Wasn’t it Paul in 2 Corinthians 7:2
Who said”Receive us; we have wronged no man, we have corrupted no man, we have defrauded no man”?
Excuse me ,but isn’t this the same Paul who was Saul that persecuted the church? Isn’t this the same Paul who was there at the stoning of Stephen, and was in total agreement with it?

Acts 7:58
And cast him out of the city, and stoned him:and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man’s feet, whose name was Saul.
Acts 8:1
And Saul was consenting unto his death.

By fact of the scripture the answer would most definitely be yes. But by repentance, the answer is no. This is not the same Saul who would later be named Paul.

These are the words Ananias told Paul:
Acts 22:16
And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.

So what revelation then had Paul received that many of us are missing today?
Paul not only got a revelation of his righteousness but he received his righteousness by faith.
Why are we so sin conscience?

Jesus left it all on the cross. His last words were “It is finished” John 19:30

I say all that to say this: can we stop looking at ourselves through the past and see ourselves through the blood of Jesus.

1 John 1:7 ASV
but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

Revelation 1:5
And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

Isaiah 43:25
I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake,
and will not remember thy sins.

When the Lord uses the word ‘blot’ He means total annihilation. When He blots out our sins, our sins, transgressions and iniquities are totally annihilated and no longer exist. God said, “I have blotted out like a thick cloud your transgressions, and like a cloud your sins. Return to Me, for I have redeemed you” (Isaiah 44:22).

Yes, absolutely God despises sin!!! No question!!! No argument. But He does not despise us!!! We are washed clean.

We are in deed perfectly perfect!

I’ll close this out by repeating what Paul said in
2 Corinthians 7:3
I speak not this to condemn you.

It’s ok to say it, I AM PERFECT!!!!!!

1 John 4:17
Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment:because as he is, so are we in this world.

Before we agree


In 2014, Holy Spirit has had me switch something up that bothered me in 2013.
It has always worked my chemicals when someone would ask me to pray for them but then tell me what to say when I prayed.
Has that ever happened to you? Or have you ever done it to someone?

I mean it’s like saying to I trust you to pray for me but I don’t trust what you will say. Come on now, you might as well pray for yourself.
And then their are the people asking for prayer but don’t want to tell you what you’re praying for.

I need to know what I’m coming into agreement with. Because at the point I agree to pray for you, I’m entering into spiritual territory. That’s major warfare. Prayer is realms and dimensions, you’re getting involved with the unseen. Angels are real!! Demons are real!!! This isn’t fairy tales and make believe.

I’m not asking you what it is you want me to pray about to be nosey or spread your business in gossipy conversations. ( maybe gossipy isn’t a real word but it explains what I’m trying to say)
There are two major reasons I’m asking you what I’m praying for
#1 so that I can target my prayer specifically to what you need. Because I pray the word of God.
#2 so I’ll know what I’m coming into agreement with.
What is your belief system? What are you standing on? Meaning what scripture are you believing.
These things are important.

This revelation has come from spiritual warfare that I brought on myself. Not knowing the truths that bothered me. Holy Spirit was sending warning signals that I missed. We must begin to pay attention to what bothers us. I’ve learned the hard way. Thank God for the grace of God.

I’ve had to go back and repent of things that I came into agreement with in praying for people. I’ve had to renounce words spoken. Come against ungodly soul ties that were created. Dealt with sickness and infirmities in my body. Close off and seal doors that were opened to the enemy. Bind satanic and demonic attacks that were coming against me and my family.

The bible clearly tells us:

Amos 3:3
Can two walk together, except they be agreed?

Matthew 18:19
Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

Once we come into agreement with a person or persons a spiritual law has been activated.
We must become cautious and aware.
How many times have you been on the phone or in a conversation with someone and they were speaking negatively or talking against the plans and purposes of God?
If you didn’t speak against what they were saying you came into agreement with it.

I don’t say any of this to bring about condemnation. That is not my intention. Only to shine a light in the darkness to things you might not be aware of.

This maybe the first time you’ve ever heard of anything like this, but before you write it off ; I ask you to pray and seek God for yourself.

I am not ashamed


The enemy will embarrass you but My God will cause me not to be ashamed.

Psalms 25:2
O my God, I trust in thee:let me not be ashamed,
let not mine enemies triumph over me.

Psalms 25:3
Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed:
let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.

2 Timothy 1:8
Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner:but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;

Isaiah 54:4
Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed:
neither be thou confounded; for thou shalt not be put to shame:
for thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth,
and shalt not remember the reproach of thy widowhood any more.

Rest


Hebrews 4:9
There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.

Hebrews 4:10
For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.

I didn’t receive breakthrough in my life until I stopped working. I stopped striving. I just let God be God in my life.
When I simply stopped and simply received what He has already done ; miracles became a reality in my life. I’m walking in miracles everyday.

Today you can do the same thing!!! I’m not anyone special. What He has done for me is available
to you today!!
Acts 10:34
Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:

John 19:30
When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

Aren’t you glad about it


Psalms 16:6-The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places;
yea, I have a goodly heritage.

Psalm 16:7-I will bless the Lord, who hath given me counsel:
my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.

Psalms 16:8-I have set the Lord always before me:
because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

my flesh also shall rest in hope.

Psalm 16:11-Thou wilt shew me the path of life:
in thy presence is fulness of joy;
at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

This morning I’m so glad that The Lord is on our side. He is for us. We don’t have to be moved. If we plant our feet in Him and let Him be our foundation; we are on firm and solid ground.
We don’t have to be anxious, worry or fret!
Where’s your joy this morning? Where’s your peace? The Psalmist said, in His presence there’s fullness of joy.

Get in His presence. I tell you we should all begin to practice His presence. We should all determine to live our lives in His presence. I’m so glad I know Him this morning. I’m so glad that I shall not be moved.

Lord I give you glory, honor and praise. I love you this morning. Father I thank you that you are the lifter of my head. I worship you for who you are.

It’s going to be alright. It’s better than ok!!! Lift your head up this morning. Square your shoulders back and know that The Lord Himself is in love with you!!! His love is undeniable.
He holds you securely in His hands!!!!
