“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” John 10:10
The did not come on a religious mission. He did not come to bring us a religion neither was denomination part of what he came to bring us. Jesus brought us the Good news of the Kingdom of God and he is the Good news himself. Jesus is not a religious man. He is a political man, he is not just a king, he is the King of kings. The religious people of His day are the ones who crucified Him. They hated him because he wasn’t religious.
The evil system of this world did not give birth to the kingdom of Jesus for he is the King of Heaven and earth. The earth is a territory of Heaven. The earth is a product of God and it remains His patent. The Psalmist was not playing with words to have written in Psalm 24:1
“The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.”
The coming of the King Jesus was to bring restoration to this earth which Adam lost in the garden and to bring us to the God-class. Jesus made a way like Isaiah wrote
“For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.” Isaiah 43:19
He sent the Holy Spirit to live inside Christians. The Holy Spirit is the active Governor commissioned from Heaven and sent to earth to continue the works of the Kingdom of God on earth. Jesus said
“But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.” John 16:7
“But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.” John 14:26
Like noted earlier, God was not enthroned by any man and He cannot be voted out! The Holy Spirit has been given to help us live victoriously as Christians.
The Lord Jesus is coming back again to restore and set up His Kingdom physically on earth. In the meantime He has sent the Governor the Holy Spirit to lead you into all truth, among other things.
There are many spiritual benefits that we received as kingdom citizens and Healing is recently part of it. The King himself purchased these benefits and also purchased our redemption and adoption.
“for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.” 1 Corinthians 6:20 (NLT)
More interestingly, Peter talked about it in a better way. The King did not purchase these things with money and other perishable things! He purchased us with his own very blood
“For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And the ransom he paid was not mere gold or silver. It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God.” 1 Peter 1:18-19
If you belong to Jesus, the promises of the Blood covenant belongs to you. There is more to being a Christian than believing there was once a man whose name is Jesus and that he lived some many years ago and was crucified on the cross. Being a Christian means asking Jesus into your life since it only takes your permission for Jesus to come and intervene in your life. According to the revelation John had, Jesus said
“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.” Revelation 3:20
The manifestation of that revelation is now! Are you yet to receive Jesus? Simply ask him into your life and ask him to be your personal Lord and saviour. When he comes in, he takes up your responsibility and you take up your own responsibility as the Kings child!
Confession: I am a Child of the blood covenant. Jesus died for my sins, he was flogged for my sickness and he resurrected for my enthronement! I am a child if God and I reign with Christ in the heavenly places. I can never be sick!
