Every Christian has eternal life within, but not every Christian has “Life Overflowing”.
I heard a sermon recently which is especially important to be repeated in our communities all the time. Because most opposition to “life more abundantly” comes from blindness to the true. Jesus said:
The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows]. John 10:10 Amplify Bible
Most Stress, struggles, frustration, oppression, depressions, pain, sicknesses, and diseases in the Christian community are self-inflicted. We suffer and get beaten when doing our own will, not God’s. Life overflowing is connected to doing God’s will.
“Of course, you get no credit for being patient if you are beaten for doing wrong. But if you suffer for doing good and endure it patiently, God is pleased with you.
For God called you to do good, even if it means suffering, just as Christ suffered for you. He is your example, and you must follow in his steps”. 1Peter 2:20-21
Unforgiveness is a common source of suffering and a big blocker of our healing. By not developing a forgiven heart, we sell or lease land in ourselves to the enemy to attack our inner peace, emotions, mind, soul, and body. Many types of sicknesses have their root in unforgiveness. Which by now is a fact of Science. But more importantly it has always been a Bible Fact!
LIFE THAT OVERFLOWS BELONGS TO ALL CHRISTIANS.
To make sure life overflowing takes place in the life of all the Christians, [if we don’t block it] Jesus himself paid for it, making healing and life-overflowing our legal right as children of the Most High God.
But He [Jesus] was wounded for our transgressions, He was crushed for our wickedness [our sin, our injustice, our wrongdoing]; The punishment [required] for our well-being fell on Him, And by His stripes (wounds) we are healed. Isaiah 53:
Think about it: We are heirs of God and co-heirs with Jesus because of what Jesus did for us.
And since we are his children, we are his heirs. In fact, together with Christ we are heirs of God’s glory. But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering. Romans 8:17
Sicknesses and diseases are not part of our suffering. Why? because Jesus paid for those. Good health and life overflowing is part of our redemption benefits or rights of the family.
Only few things can block abundant life to be manifested in our lives. Unforgiveness is one of them, lack of revelation knowledge [Faith] is another.
“Our Father, who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come, Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven. ‘Give us this day our daily bread.
‘And forgive us our debts, as we have forgiven our debtors [letting go of both the wrong and the resentment] Mathew 6:
The implication of “as we have forgiven our debtors” is that unforgiveness blocks God’s Forgiveness and most benefits from manifesting in our lives as God’s children.
How lack of revelation knowledge or Faith, blocks our receiving, not only of our healing but everything else, that belongs to us?
Nobody gets save by behaving good. Salvations is only by God’s Grace. A sinner cannot stop sinning before he gets save and be cleansed by the blood of Jesus.
The same way, we can’t ask for healing based on our own behavior. Yes, we have the right to be transformed by the Holy Spirit from Glory to Glory, but we must never come to God our Father in Prayer asking for our healing or deliverance bragging on our own behavior or holiness. Our right to get healed comes from Jesus’s redemption alone. The merit is always his, never ours.
“So, anyone who eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord unworthily is guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. That is why you should examine yourself before eating he bread and drinking the cup. For if you eat the bread or drink the cup without honoring the body of Christ, you are eating and drinking God’s judgment upon yourself. That is why many of you are weak and sick and some have even died.” 1Corinthians 11:
By not studying, and receiving revelation knowledge, from the Father, then our only option is to ask without real faith. And without faith it is impossible to please God.
Jesus’s sacrifice for us before the cross, during the cross and after the cross is the only thing that God counts as worth payment to grant us everything we need to live an overflowing life, including healing. Never our own merits.
Revelation knowledge equals faith:
Many pulpits teach and preach the Bible intellectually, emotionally, psychologically, etc. But only revelation knowledge will produce faith that can set us free. Jesus said to Peter:
“My Father in heaven has revealed to you… … and upon this rock I will build my church, and all the powers of hell will not conquer it.” Mathew 16:
REVELATION KNOWLEDGE IS OUR ROCK. DIRECTLY FROM GOD’S SPIRIT TO OUR SPIRIT.
As you can see, we individually need to receive revelation from the Father to be able of destroying the works of the enemy. Jesus went through to all what He went through for our benefit. To prepare a Church without spot or wrinkle.
He [Jesus] did this to present her [the Church] to himself as a glorious church without a spot or wrinkle or any other blemish. Instead, she will be holy and without fault. Ephesians 5:27
Receive his kind of life by Praying: Lord, I do believe that Jesus of Nazareth took my place in the Cross. Lord, I am sorry for all my sins against you and against my own life, please forgive me. I believe Jesus was raised on the third day for my justification. Jesus, I receive you as my Lord and Savior. Your Holy blood cleanses me right now and God gives me a new heart and eternal life. Now my name is written in the book of life, guaranteed by the following written law:
“That if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
For with the heart, one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” Romans 10:9-10
