COMING OFF THE CROSS INTO VICTORY
Jesus tells us that He has overcome the world.
Have you ever thought of what that really means?
What He is telling us is, anything in this world that we will face, He has all ready defeated.
When Jesus was on the cross, God saw all of us in Jesus that day. All of our sickness, our iniquities, our transgressions, and our sins of that day and days to come were on Him.
Therefore, when God looks down on the world and the people in it, He sees the righteousness of Jesus on us.
That is why we can say today that no weapon formed against us shall prosper.
In what we call, The Old Testament we read where the tabernacle (God’s house) always was in front of the people as they moved around. God led the way.
Now in what we call The New Testament we read where Jesus led the people while He was in the world.
However, when He left the world He sent back His Spirit to live around us, through us, and in us.
Jesus defeated everything in this world; even death. He came out of the grave, ascended into heaven, and is seated on the right hand of the Father.
Jesus defeated the world and now He lives in us and we are victorious because He lives in us.
We walked away from the cross in VICTORY, with the defeated cross behind us. We walked into the VICTORIOUS plans that God our Father has for us, in this world.
Once you understand how much God and Jesus love you, you will find that the love you have for them cannot even come close.
I do understand how you came to believe that the cross is where Jesus is or that the cross is still in front of us. People tell you, to lay everything down at the foot of the cross but Jesus tells us we can come boldly to the throne of God and lay our burdens down there so, we will find grace to help in time of need.
When He came off the cross, we did too. He went to heaven and we walked into victory.
Jesus is no longer on the cross. He came off the cross. He is sitting at the right hand of the throne in heaven.
God is on His throne with Jesus at His right hand. Gods’ throne is in heaven. No more, cross to bear.
Understand that the King James Bible is a very good Bible although; it is not the original Bible. The Old Testament was written in Hebrew and The New Testament was written in Greek. Therefore, in translating of some verses into English, some translations were lost and it makes the verses read different which means you will get a different understanding.
God Bless You
