In Him ALL The Promises Are Yes And Amen!!

For all the promises of God in Him are YES and AMEN, to the Glory of God through us. 2 Cor 1:20 (Mirror) In Him the detail of every single promise of God is fulfilled; Jesus is God’s YES to your total well being…

All the promises God has given us (health, provision, peace, abundant grace, righteousness…) whatever you need, it has been promised and provided to you, therefore in Christ the answer is yes.

Don’t be fearful, fear chokes the word in your life, fully discover God’s love and grace for your life, and you will enjoy peace, and the “yes and amen” to all His promises.

Many people have discovered a glimpse of God’s goodness and grace, and they say, “I want that, and I’m going to do whatever it takes to learn of, and grow in this grace,” only to return to their place of unrest because as Mark 4:19 says; “the cares of the world enter in, and choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.

That place of “unrest” is anxiety, and the cares of this world. God has prepared a place of perfect and perpetual rest for us, don’t let fear and anxiety (through unbelief) keep you from the “yes and amen” to ALL the promises and good life god has prepared for you. Hebrews 4 says they failed to enter God’s rest because of unbelief. They did not believe what God said about them, and they settled for a lie about themselves instead. They remained in unrest, or a better way to put it, unbelief, full of anxiety and fear.

If you have been saying “I want to learn this, and experience God’s best,” then by all means jump in to His grace, find a place or get your hands on resources that will feed you this good news, jump in and taste the goodness of God; and watch your life transform as you enter His rest! There is no better place anywhere than the place of God’s rest!!

Jesus finished the work, He paid it all in full! Don’t stand outside looking in any-longer, come on into His best, His rest! God’s richest blessing are already yours, so reign in life today!

  1. What if the very place one feels anxiety and doubt is at church and from pastors in that they continue to keep the focus (and responsibility for good behavior) on you, the Christian, instead of on Christ – and the ministry believes that Christians can be possessed by demonic spirits (from past associations and experiences)and must undergo a process called “deliverance”??? This can seriously undermine one’s security in Christ when one has already been rendered vulnerable to doubt as a result of undergoing trauma such as violence against one’s person (eg. sexual abuse)- to wit: why was I/my child not protected per God’s promises?

    1. Unfortunately, religion conflicts and opposes the good news of God’s grace. I like many that have received the revelation of unconditional love, God’s grace and goodness found myself at conflict with much of what was taught at church. In addition to that when I pastored in the late 80’s and early 90’s I taught the same legalistic ministry of death and condemnation. Anytime you hear a message that condemns you, and requires you to “do something” to be accepted by God, you can be assured that it is not the “unconditional” love and grace of God. If it causes your heart to be troubled, then it’s time to leave. You are correct in saying that “this can seriously undermine one’s security in Christ.” That is exactly what it does. If a person has believed upon/accepted The Lord, they cannot be possessed. Colossians says their life is now and forever hidden in Christ, in God. They are now possessed, but not by the enemy, they are possessed by the Godhead!

      The confusion for most Christians comes from trying to live by the rules, (law) and they largely ignore the grace of God, which IS the gospel. In 2nd Corinthians 3 verses 7 and 9 Paul refers to the teaching of trying to live by the law as “the ministry of death and condemnation.” Most Christians can pick up on that pretty easily, however what is even worse, is when churches teach a mixture of law and grace; they share some truly good news (grace) then they add the “but” (law) or if you want this grace you must perform, have good behavior, live right and so on. I’m sure you will agree, this is the moment, where we sit in the pew, and our heart begins to be troubled because we have just been ‘disqualified’ once again from being good enough.

      We are unconditionally loved and accepted because of what Jesus has done, and nothing to do with what we do at all. Leave the place of condemnation, and find the place where grace is radically taught. If there is no such place where you are, then find teaching of radical grace on the web (such as this site as well as the links we list) and begin feasting on who you are in Christ, and how loved and accepted you are with absolutely NO condemnation. Jesus was condemned so that you would never again be condemned, period. Romans 8:1 there is therefore now NO condemnation for those in Christ.

      In conclusion, let me say, we have all had things happen in our lives that were painful, such as your final comment, and instead of trying to figure out why it happened, lets focus on the one who will bring complete healing and restoration in our lives because He loves us. And as you grow in your identity in Christ you will no doubt see His protection, it has always been there, but as Hosea 4:6 says, my people are destroyed by a lack of knowledge. This has been the case with most all of us. When we grow in His grace and goodness, we then clearly see that His love and protection is ours, and we effortlessly walk in it.

      Once we discover who we really are in Christ, that we are innocent, there is no condemnation and that we are truly complete and holy in Him, the guilt and shame from those incidents will go away, because He has fully and completely redeemed you in Christ, He took your guilt and shame, and you are seated in heavenly places with Him, you are royalty, God is thinking about you and His love for you all the time. His love will bring healing. Feast on the gospel of grace, and watch what He does in your life. Close your ears and heart to the religious condemning voices, and listen to God’s heart of unconditional, no obligation love for you, His abounding grace and favor. God bless!!

  2. Thank you for your reply. The thing is – even though the guilt was pinned on me and the enforced secrecy allowed the shame that had been projected onto me to embed itself deeply into my body and soul, intellectually I have always known it wasn’t mine to bear; it didn’t belong to me: I wasn’t the perpetrator; I was the victim. Where was my protection?

    Worse, no one who was in a position to “do justice” (what God asks us to do)responded with defense, protection or advocacy. Thus, I was assaulted again, but this time passively, insidiously and with cowardice – the message: I was worth less than whatever would need to be risked or exerted in order to defend or/and protect me.

    My confusion lies in this: why didn’t God protect or defend me? (or a mother could ask God: why did You not protect my baby/child according to Your Word/promises? You cannot lie. I am your seed in Christ. Why would You not protect my baby from being sexually violated/harmed and in such a vile and damaging way?) To this day, the perpetrators are protected and trusted and accepted and accorded credibility, power and respect in the social circle (for some outside of Christ) as well as in the body of Christ. The truth remains hidden and protected and the guilt and shame remains displaced on the victim. How much longer will this deceit go on??? Why did Jesus DIE if it is still fine with those who can speak that those victimized/HURT & DAMAGED are still expected to remain suffocated? That’s not the life Jesus died to bring us; that’s not the freedom He purchased for us.

    Grace and TRUTH came by Jesus Christ – I know that, had He been there in person, He would have responded, based on that statement alone.

    (I realize this is a bit of a tangent and appreciate you bearing with me here as it is still related; I felt moved to respond and thank you for your encouraging and to-the-point posts!)

    1. D,

      This is obviously a very painful matter, and I know God wants to bring healing to you. The challenge I have, is trying to explain or come up with an acceptable answer as to where your protection was at that time. I can’t do that, but it is my desire, in a delicate situation such as this, to present the gospel in such a way as to help bring out your identity and healing in Christ. In John 9:1, this question came up with the disciples to Jesus concerning a man blind from birth. Joh 9:1  (MSG)  Walking down the street, Jesus saw a man blind from birth. Joh 9:2    His disciples asked, “Rabbi, who sinned: this man or his parents, causing him to be born blind?” Joh 9:3    Jesus said, “You’re asking the wrong question. You’re looking for someone to blame. There is no such cause-effect here. Look instead for what God can do.”

      Focusing on the pain, guilt and shame produces more questions, and additional condemnation, even bringing into question God’s love for you. God loves you so much, and your redemption in Christ is perfectly perfect, and completely complete; He has made you a brand new person in Him. You died with Him, were buried, and raised up into His resurrection life, your brand new, the old is gone the new is here. If we continue to try to determine what or why something happened to us in our past, we miss the Joy of our present (restored to our original design) life in Him. It then becomes a stumbling block in our lives, which the accuser uses to try to stop us from enjoying our new life. We cannot have the kind of quality life intended for us in Christ, in the presence of guilt. Guilt infers punishment, and we invariably find ways to punish ourselves for that which makes us guilty. 1st John 4:17 & 18 …as He is, even so are we in this world. There is no fear in love: but perfect love casteth out fear, because fear hath punishment…

      God’s love is the only perfect love, not our love, so as we focus on and grow in our understanding of God’s love for us, the tormenting punishing fear and pain is removed, because knowing God’s love for us cast out fear. We see in that verse that as He is so are we in this world. You are just like Jesus, perfect and clean. The children of Israel in the wilderness were bitten by snakes and were dying, God told Moses to put a bronze serpent on a pole (a type of Christ finished work on the cross) and as long as they would behold, gaze upon the bronze serpent, they were healed, and lived. Look to Jesus, put your focus on Him, and His intense love for you, and you will see the victory given to you in Christ.

      God desires for us to reign in life, (Romans 5:17). When do we start to reign, after we figure out the mysteries of our past? Or right now? We reign when we receive His abundance of grace, and gift of righteousness (righteousness also means to be innocent, guiltless, and faultless). We recognize that Jesus forever removed sin, and made us forever innocent. Your victory in this matter is to look to the answer, Jesus, and what He has done instead of the hurtful situation of the past. Knowing God’s opinion of you, and His love for you will bring freedom. Here are two links that have messages that I think will bless you. http://www.gracewithoutmeasure.com/blog/?p=780 And http://www.gracewithoutmeasure.com/blog/?p=785 I hope this helps. God loves you and His thoughts toward you are as many as the sands of the sea. God Bless!!
