Are You Afraid Of Being Blessed Essay

Improved Essays
Are you afraid of being blessed? We can miss the things of God if we don 't know and understand that we have a right to His Blessings. We must rebuke the spirit of poverty in our lives. We will never do anything special until we acknowledge that we are special and act like it. Romans 5:17, ‘For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God 's abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ.’

When we apply the Blood of Jesus to our lives, we are pardoned of our sins. We are cleansed. We are protected. We are made righteous and our relationship with God is restored. This means that we are not only forgiven,

This offers us a legal right to every Word that our Father, Jehovah has spoken. We must make a commitment to a life without sin. We must sincerely repent and understand that repentance is a posture with God; allowing us to be free from condemnation, guilt, shame and blame. God does not hang around in those places where we have fallen short. Jesus came to save us, cleanse us and set us free. He did not come to this world to condemn us. He came that we would have life and have it more abundantly (John 10:10).

Everyone wants prosperity. Everyone is praying for prosperity. Why are we praying for prosperity? Because we are living in lack. We are struggling. We have an intimate knowledge of poverty. We are living paycheck to paycheck or are just down right broke. We don 't understand the laws of money or even the importance of knowing how to balance our checkbook. We can 't account for what we have or don 't have because we don 't know. We may have a job but I 've heard that j.o.b. is an acronym for just over broke.

Prosperity is not just having things. It is the consciousness that attracts the things. Prosperity is a way of living and thinking, not just having money or material possessions. -Eric

Poverty is also a state of mind and spirit. When you live in an impoverished condition, all you think about is your circumstances, and that constant consciousness of it actually can perpetuate it. Regardless of the situation we see ourselves in, we must have the bigger vision of God 's power to bring us out of that situation. ‘As a man thinketh so he is,’ Proverbs 23:7, this is the Law of Correspondence. It says as within so without. This is why we need the power of belief. Faith is belief without proof. When we are not spending time in the secret place with God, our spirit is impoverished. It 's not being built up or

    lying, stealing, adultery, fornication, coveting, lust, etc., will not befall us; that is forgiveness. But in addition, we get what we do not deserve, being in the presence of God. Finally, the only way to be saved by grace is by putting your trust in what Jesus did on the cross. Christians believe that real transformation happens when one accepts Christ in their heart and the Holy Spirit dwells in their…

    The bible said, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.” Romans 3:23-24 (NKJV) This is so hard for some to believe. Some of us would prefer to work for our salvation. But God’s gift of salvation costs us nothing, even though it cost Christ everything. The Lord now says to us, “Take it by faith! It’s yours for free.…

    With his death, resurrection and the power we have been made participants in the covenant that we are saved. We are not saved by our own doing, but by the love of Christ, his will and power. In addition, Jesus canceled the debt that was on our lives by simply giving his life. He paid the cost and suffered for us to be free from sin and to have a good relationship with the Father our God by the shedding his blood. We all should walk authority that Jesus has paid in full.…

    The grace of God is the gift of salvation granted to sinners for their redemption. The common Christian teaching is that grace is unmerited mercy (favor) that God gave to humanity by sending his son to die on a cross, thus delivering eternal salvation. Although Jesus stood alone to face His accusers, we never have to. When the powers of this world, seen and unseen, condemn us, Jesus is always standing alongside not to protest our innocence, but to offer Himself as the one who has already stood trial for our sins. Ephesians 2:8 says, "For by grace are you saved, through faith, and that not of yourselves."…

    Grudem summarizes this confidence well when he says, “God will never take vengeance on us for our past sins or make us pay the penalty that is due for them or punish us out of wrath for the purpose of doing harm.” (Grudem 732). Justification in the New Testament is contrasted with condemnation. With justification and Christ’s atoning death comes our salvation and every spiritual blessing. This means there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1). This promise is both now and the future.…

    That which is the Heaven Father our Creator. The question of Morality in Christian worldview accounts for man’s downfall and his require for forgiveness in Romans 3:23. All of humanity misses the mark with righteousness with God regardless of how they try to live. Since all humans have shortcomings with God, it is vital we observe how we interrelate with each other. We must never overlook that all mankind was formed in God’s image, whereas that morality is essential in our interactions with each other.…

    Christ’s holiness was not just the absence of actual sin, but a perfect conformity to the will of His Father. Jesus made it known He was about his Father’s will. (Bridges, 2006, p. 47) The Pursuit of holiness is directing us to take on the mindset of Christ because we are no longer slaves to sin. Paul said we died from sin. God delivered us from sin through his union with Christ death.…

    Paul, in his letter, explains that despite humans being sinners, and the introduction of sin into mankind from free will, God still sent his only son to earth to die for us, opening the gates of heaven. O’Collins’ conclusion on this passage and other Biblical passages that provide evidence into God’s divine love is, “God’s initiative of love clarifies the story of salvation” (Christology, p.300). O’Collins argues that we cannot understand the story of salvation if we don’t find and appreciate that there is evidence showing that God loves us. If we can understand divine love from God then we can reason why Christ is the redeemer of the world. Christ becoming the redeemer was started by God’s act of divine love, Christ being put on the cross and dying for our sins, something Benedict in Deus caritas est also argues.…

    For we know that, “sin’s payment is death, but G-d’s gracious gift is eternal life in Messiah Yeshua our L-rd” (Romans 6:23, TLV). It is then time to face our sin. “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). Thus, we cannot just put a cap on sin and hide it under a bushel because then we have this heavy load overwhelming us. And when we do not deal with the sin, we continue sinning against G-d, which makes it hard for us to follow Him.…

    We need to remember that every action has a reaction, and may we understand the passes that the Lord gives us through repentance should not be taken lightly. David tells us in Psalm 103:10, “God does not punish us for all our sins; he does not deal harshly with us, as we deserve.” The Bible explains to us, how to deal with wickedness and sinful behavior. “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14). This is the key to preserve holiness, but as Christians we have to unify for change to…
