Cleansing your Bloodline
Simply believing in God is great but there is more. For many of us have issues that seem to supersede our salvation. There are some issues that we deal with that seem to persist and the source of these issues are unbeknownst to us, meaning the precede our own existence. We know God operates in a judicial framework, atonement, salvation. We also know that in the book of Zechariah that the enemy accuses the high priest Joshau before God in a courtroom setting. This is what happens in relation to all believers and unbelievers alike. This is the same judicial construct that secures the authority for
Zacharia 3:3-7 KJV
3Then he showed me the high priest Joshua standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan* standing at his right hand to accuse him. 2And the Lord said to Satan,* ‘The Lord rebuke you, O Satan!* The Lord who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you! Is not this man a brand plucked from the fire?’ 3Now Joshua was dressed in filthy clothes as he stood before the angel. 4The angel said to those who were standing before him, ‘Take off his filthy clothes.’ And to him he said, ‘See, I have taken your guilt away from you, and I will clothe you in festal apparel.’ 5And I said, ‘Let them put a clean turban on his head.’ So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him in the apparel; and the angel of the Lord was standing by.6 Then the angel of the Lord assured Joshua, saying 7‘Thus says the Lord of hosts: If you will walk in my ways and keep my requirements, then you shall rule my house and have charge of my courts, and I will give you the right of access among those who are standing here.
The Bible tells us that God is a righteous Judge and He will adjudicate cases and curses that are presently enforced, curses on our bloodline and all other curses, that are with a cause because the bible states that a curse without a cause can not land (Prov 26: 2) There is a difference between forgiveness and cleansing. Being forgiven means we have been pardoned of our sins because the wages were paid by Jesus dying on the cross for the wages of sin is death which requires blood for atonement (pure sacrifice) (Romans 6:23). Being cleansed means we must be cleansed from the generational consequences of these injurious acts: Our forefathers have left from serving The True and Living God to serving the god of this world for money, fame and fortune giving the enemy full access to their bloodline to exact whatever means he so desires upon them attacking them with sickness, disease, and poverty, stealing their God-given blood right and,with legal right to do so because of the covenants that were made long before some of us were thinking about. Many times, unbeknown to us and only recognized through prayerful revelation through the Holy Spirit.
The character of God as a judge is given in the following scriptures.
These scriptures I believe establishes God as sovereign over a judicial heavenly court, known as righteous judge of the universe.
- “Righteousness and justice are the foundation of thy throne” (Psalms 89:14)
- Jesus claims, “My judgment is just because I seek not my own will, but the will of him who sent me” (John 5:30).
- Jesus clearly regards his Father’s will as upholding justice.God is “One who impartially judges” (1Peter 1:17).
Jesus was tried and sentenced to death for the sins of the world past present and future when Jesus said on the cross it is finished He took the judgment for sin. (Romans 3:23). Our spirit was saved from that point on for those of us who have accepted His salvation. But salvation is an ongoing process, we have issues in our souls that must be addressed, some of it based on bloodline sin, iniquity, and transgressions. That, (The act of Jesus dying on the cross) secured our spirit, However, the soul, which houses our will, intellect and our emotions must be sanctified and brought back into alignment and agreement with The Father (I.e this is what makes us free will agents- God wanted us to choose Him over this world just like Jesus, when he was taken to the top of the mountain and was tempted by Satan himself offering Jesus the kingdoms of this world).
John 19:28-30 (NKJV)
28 After this, Jesus, [a]knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, “I thirst!” 29 Now a vessel full of sour wine( I.e [represents]Wine of the Old Levitical Priesthood and covenant) was sitting there; and they filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on hyssop( herb used for healing and cleansing the body), and put it to His mouth. 30 So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.
That simply means our Spirit has been redeemed but if you look carefully look at our current situation we are still being saved. The Apostle Paul said in Philippians 2:12 (KJV)
Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
Jesus had laid the foundation for salvation and a road to redemption and reconciliation back to the Father through his works on the cross but that was only the beginning for the work to be done before the Kingdom of God to be manifested in this Earth.
Even David wrote in Psalm 51(KJV)
51 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. 2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. 4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest and be clear when thou judgest. 5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
This is a Psalm that was written by the king David after the Prophet Nathan had brought to David’s attention his sin. He did so using a parable nevertheless, David recognized his sin and penned the 51st Psalm. I believe there is much information in that Psalm concerning cleansing his bloodline and acknowledging that the sins of his forefathers were on him, in him or even through him. David inadvertently replicated some of the very same sins that his forefathers had committed. Why is this important?, I am glad you asked!
- David first asks God for mercy according to God’s loving-kindness and His tender mercies.
- He then proceeds to ask that his transgressions be blotted out. What are transgressions?
Transgressions– Adam’s transgression of God’s law: infringement, breach, contravention, violation, defiance, infraction, disobedience, breaking, flouting, nonobservance, overstepping, exceeding. ANTONYMS obedience
- He then proceeds to ask God to wash him of his iniquity, why the word wash? In order to come to a full understanding, we must also define the word iniquity.
Iniquity– is moral injustice, wickedness or sin. In biblical terms, it is a violation of God’s moral law, which can be described as perversity,
So David is asking God to cleanse him or wash him, as David knowing his family history recognized he was transgressing in the same way as his forefathers did.
David asked to cleansed of his sin. Let’s define sin:
Sin- is the thought portion of all of these activities. Remember Jesus in the new testament said this in Matthew 5:28 (KJV):
But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
- In verse 5 of the 51st Palm David now discusses his origins and the conditions by which he was conceived.
I personally believe that David may have been conceived out of wedlock and I believe we can see this as a possibility when we observe the narrative of David’s life. David said he was shapen in Iniquity meaning that the iniquity of his forefathers was the source of these proclivities and propensities to commit the very same sins of his ancestors. The very sin that produced the writing of the 51st Psalm a Psalm of repentance and cleansing, The sin transgression and iniquity that was in David produced a son, The great King Solomon with the same issues as David and David’s forefathers. So we see presently a generational curse caused by iniquity.
There are 3 Tenses of Salvation. Salvation past, Salvation present, and Salvation future. When we receive Jesus in our hearts we get saved, every blessing, everything at the cross is our right. Our spirit got saved, sealed for all eternity. But our soul is a proceeding redemptive work where we need to be cleansed, meaning our bloodline needs to be cleansed. The soul is where we have our personality, our endeavors, and emotions.
This area of the human is easily corrupted not only by trauma and our personal sin but whatever we allow to enter it, through our gates ( mouth, eyes, ears, nose, and touch).
In our soul exists no good thing. The following scriptures talk about the condition of the heart/soul that is constantly in the need to be saved.
Romans 7: 18-20 (KJV)
18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find. 19 For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice. 20 Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me.
Our heart is used synonymous with our soul and this lets us know the condition of our hearts.
Mathew 12:34 (KJV)
34 You brood of vipers! How can you speak good things, when you are evil? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
Proverbs 4:23 (KJV)
23 Keep your heart with all diligence, for from it flows the issues of life.
Proverbs 10:11 (KJV)
11 The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life, but the mouth of the wicked conceals violence.
Luke 6:45 (KJV)
45 The good person out of the good treasure of the heart produces good, and the evil person out of evil treasure produces evil; for it is out of the abundance of the heart that the mouth speaks.
We must each seek out our own soul salvation as Peter writes in his first epistle. The word souls and spirit are not interchangeable.
Therefore as our Spirit is saved our soul still needs to be saved and is being saved. This starts and can only happen with a renewing of the mind.
Romans 12:12 KJV
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Philippians 2:5 KJV
5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
“This information God has given others and I is revelatory, it is not just simply breaking curses and covenants. God is a covenantal God, that is how we who are in Christ have received salvation. All humans are either born into a family covenant, marry, or are adopted into a family covenant. Covenants that involve iniquity persist through the third and fourth generations. (Exodus 34:6-7, Deuteronomy 5:8-10) There are other eternal covenants. Some covenants are eternal. Case in point, Seth the son of Adam, Seth being the firstborn after the fall determines the generation consequence that all subsequent humanity would be born under. We are all subsequently created in Seth’s Image and likeness when it comes to the iniquity the covering Glory of God is missing because of the sin of his parents, The propensity, and proclivity that is in us is the direct result of Adamic sin.
Genesis chapter 5 verse 1 says that God created man in His image and likeness. meaning God created male and female and blessed them and called them Adam. In verse three the text tells us that Adam had another son named Seth who was born in the image and likeness of his father Adam.
Gen 4:25 (NKJV)
There was only one son of Adam which was Abel who was murdered by his half brother Caine, every subsequent human being born no longer has the covering glory of God, that covering glory was the reason Adam and Eve did not know they were naked, every human being is now born in the image and likeness of our forefather Adam, therefore in the image and likeness Seth who is the offspring of Adam. (The fallen Adam)
Genesis 5 King James Version (KJV)
5 This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;2 Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.3 And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, and after his image; and called his name Seth: 4 And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters:
This is explicitly why your bloodline has to be washed as we carry the residual consequence of generational sin, simply being forgiven is not enough and we see the example in Psalm 51. We must remember and I have even preached it and taught it incorrectly. Yes, Adam and Eve were created in the image and likeness of God, But after the fall every subsequent individual was created in the image and likeness of their parents. Genesis 5:1-3 KJV
5 This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him; 2 Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.3 And Adam lived a hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, and after his image; and called his name Seth:
In conclusion, every subsequent human is born in the image and likeness of their forefathers lacking God’s covering glory. This indicates the generational curses we see in our bloodline which must be cleansed.
Bloodline Cleansing Prayer
“Start by asking the Holy Spirit to lead you in prayer and ask the Lord Jesus to walk with you into the courtroom of heaven, (Heb.12:18, 22-24). Ask the Holy Spirit to sharpen your five senses of the spirit so you can see, hear, sense and feel what is going on in the courtroom. Sometimes you may not see pictures of anything, you may just sense or hear what is going on in the courtroom because we are spiritual beings living in a body. The courtroom prayer is a prayer of faith, you must have faith and trust God that God He is true to His word and He will vindicate you because we have Jesus on our side and His blood is speaking for us in the courtroom of heaven. He is our Advocate, trust Him.
Heavenly Father, the Judge of heaven and earth, I call you my Abba, Father. You created me and made me in your image. You formed my inward parts and covered me in my mother’s womb. You know every detail of my life and the numbers of the hairs on my head. You called me the apple of your eye. I call you Holy, Righteous, Just, and the Ancient of days. I enter into your presence through the blood of the Lamb and through my Savior Jesus Christ. I humble myself in your presence as I bring my petition boldly before your throne of grace that I may obtain mercy and find grace to help in my time of need.
I have not come to the mountain that may be touched and that burned with fire, and to blackness, darkness, and tempest, but I have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God. I have come into the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels and to the general assembly and the church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven. I have come to you my God, the Judge of heaven and earth, to the spirits of just men made perfect, I have come to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel. (Heb.12:18,22-28 personalized)
Heavenly Father, you are the righteous Judge of heaven and earth, I would like to convene the mobile court of heaven. I stand on the finished work of the cross of Jesus under the covering of His blood and your love for me. Heavenly Father, I repent and ask for your forgiveness in the name of Jesus for my sins of breaking your first and second commandments, and I also repent and ask for forgiveness for any sins, transgressions, and iniquities that may have been passed down to me through my bloodline, especially the sins of carving an image or an idol out of the things you created and worshipping this image.
Father, I ask for your forgiveness for my ancestors and for anyone in my generational bloodline linked to me that has committed this sin and chosen to serve other gods or worship them. I pray that you will forgive us and cleanse me/my children/grandchildren etc. of my/our iniquities and sins because I/we know that I/we have broken the first and the second commandment which is an act of disobedience to you.
I ask that the blood of the Lamb of God will cleanse and purify me/children, grandchildren, etc from this sin and purify me/us from every negative impact that this sin and iniquity may have brought into my life/our lives in Jesus name. You said that if we confess our sins, You are faithful and just to forgive us and cleanse us from all our unrighteousness (1 John 1:9).
Heavenly Father, by the authority given to me in the name of Jesus Christ, I now break myself/children/grandchildren, etc. free from every vow and every blood covenant that was made on my/our behalf and sever myself/children/grandchildren, etc. from these covenants and vows. I declare that I/we will not be a partaker and will not participate in such covenants and vows as from this day. I destroy every effect of these covenants in my life/our lives in Jesus’s name.
Just as Gideon obeyed you in Judges 6, I also take a stand against all activities that do not align with who You are in every area of my life/our lives. I tear down every altar of Baal and any demonic altars that may be speaking for me or my children, grandchildren, etc. in the spirit realm and I cut down every image that may be representing me/us/children/grandchildren, etc. in the spirit realm in the name of Jesus.
In the name of Jesus Christ, I block and close the portal of that blood covenant and vow from flowing into our lives, and I declare this day, that the Blood of the Lamb of God will be the only blood covering me/us and flowing into my/our, spirit, soul and body. I place the blood of the Lamb of God over every door, and lintel of my life/our lives, and I pray that the blood of Jesus will shield and protect us everywhere we go and in all that we do in Jesus’s name. Heavenly
Father, I offer my life/children/grandchildren, etc. to You, as a living sacrifice and I/we declare that I/we will only worship and honor You, the “I AM THAT I AM.” I now confess and receive your blessings, promised in Deuteronomy 28:1-14 over my life/children/grandchildren/lineage in Jesus’s name. Whoever the Son sets free is free indeed. I seal my prayers with the blood of Jesus. Amen.”
1st John 1:9
9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.
4 thoughts on “Cleansing your Bloodline”
I am blessed by this revelation of the impacts/curses bloodline iniquities have had on my personal life and the rest of my community. My community, including myself and my family have been gripped by some unknown forces. There is no prosperity and dryness amongst the people in the community. It is difficult for men in the community to maintain a healthy spiritual relationship with God in the church. They repent one time and are out of the church as soon as they can. Business ventures failed every time one tried out something.
As this struggles were real overtime, I started wondering what was happening to us. In my quest to find out more, I was led to tap in on this subject of bloodline iniquity. I started my research by watching YouTube videos on this topic and websites which gave me more knowledge. on the 28/07/2020, I came across your website. Your teachings on this topic really convicted me and I am thankful to God for revealing to me what bloodline iniquities can do to us.
It was through research and discussions with a local church pastor that God revealed to us something that our fathers in the community and their fore fathers did in the past years going back as far as over a 100 years that was against God’s will. It was a ritual they were involved with which I will not elaborate further; but that ritual was root cause of all the dryness, sickness, conflicts, etc. that took place in the community over the years.
I thank God for this revelation. I am now praying on this for God to forgive me and this bloodline iniquity and others that may still be hidden in the name of Jesus and cleanse it by the power of the blood of Jesus. I speak Colossians 2:14 over this bloodline iniquity and over all my sins and iniquities. My children, my siblings, parents and the rest of the members of our community and their families be released from this curse and our land be blessed in Jesus name.
Ever since I came across the teaching on this blood line thing via satellite TV I’ve immediately put it into practice. When I look through my family tree I discovered idolatry as number one sin my ancestors have thrived on as such leading to various other sin like murder, adultery, fornication etc I’m currently pleading the blood of Jesus to wash me from every contamination and praying the deliverance prayers and I know God will heal my bloodline and set us completely free in Jesus name. Amen.
Thank you Lord for such a revelation, God wants us cleanse our selves before He returns because He is coming for a clean & sanctified church
Whether you believe in God or not, read this message!
All throughout time, we can see how we have been strategically conditioned to come to this point where we are on the verge of a cashless society. Did you know that Jesus foretold of this event almost 2,000 years ago?
In the last book of the Bible, Revelation 13:16-18, it states,
“He (the false prophet who deceives many by his miracles–Revelation 19:20) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”
Referring to the last generation, this could only be speaking of a cashless society. Why so? Revelation 13:17 states that we cannot buy or sell unless we receive the mark of the beast. If physical money was still in use, we could buy or sell with one another without receiving the mark. This would contradict scripture that states we need the mark to buy or sell!
These verses could not be referring to something purely spiritual as scripture references two physical locations (our right hand or forehead) stating the mark will be on one “OR” the other. If this mark was purely spiritual, it would indicate both places, or one–not one OR the other!
This is where it comes together. It is amazing how accurate the Bible is concerning the implantable RFID microchip. Here are notes from a man named Carl Sanders who worked with a team of engineers to help develop this RFID chip:
“Carl Sanders sat in seventeen New World Order meetings with heads-of-state officials such as Henry Kissinger and Bob Gates of the C.I.A. to discuss plans on how to bring about this one-world system. The government commissioned Carl Sanders to design a microchip for identifying and controlling the peoples of the world—a microchip that could be inserted under the skin with a hypodermic needle (a quick, convenient method that would be gradually accepted by society).
Carl Sanders, with a team of engineers behind him, with U.S. grant monies supplied by tax dollars, took on this project and designed a microchip that is powered by a lithium battery, rechargeable through the temperature changes in our skin. Without the knowledge of the Bible (Brother Sanders was not a Christian at the time), these engineers spent one-and-a-half-million dollars doing research on the best and most convenient place to have the microchip inserted.
Guess what? These researchers found that the forehead and the back of the hand (the two places the Bible says the mark will go) are not just the most convenient places, but are also the only viable places for rapid, consistent temperature changes in the skin to recharge the lithium battery. The microchip is approximately seven millimeters in length, .75 millimeters in diameter, about the size of a grain of rice. It is capable of storing pages upon pages of information about you. All your general history, work history, criminal record, health history, and financial data can be stored on this chip.
Brother Sanders believes that this microchip, which he regretfully helped design, is the “mark” spoken about in Revelation 13:16–18. The original Greek word for “mark” is “charagma,” which means a “scratch or etching.” It is also interesting to note that the number 666 is actually a word in the original Greek. The word is “chi xi stigma,” with the last part, “stigma,” also meaning “to stick or prick.” Carl believes this is referring to a hypodermic needle when they poke into the skin to inject the microchip.”
Mr. Sanders asked a doctor what would happen if the lithium contained within the RFID microchip leaked into the body. The doctor replied by saying a terrible sore would appear in that location. This is what the book of Revelation says:
“And the first (angel) went, and poured out his vial on the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore on the men which had the mark of the beast, and on them which worshipped his image” (Revelation 16:2).
You can read more about it here–and to also understand the mystery behind the number 666: https://2RUTH.ORG
The third angel’s warning in Revelation 14:9-11 states,
“Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, ‘If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.'”
Great hope is in our midst, and is coming in a mighty way–the greatest revival for Jesus in the history of the world where we will see the most souls come to Him of all tribes, tongues, nations, and peoples (Rev. 7:9-10); for we have this promise in God’s Word in the midst of these dark times:
“Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years (not literal–rather a spiritual label for time spent in eternity); and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while (when the Antichrist and false prophet will rise up and God will test the world).” (Revelation 20:1-3)
“The coming of the lawless one (the Antichrist) is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12)”
Who is Barack Obama, and why is he still in the public scene?
So what’s in the name? The meaning of someone’s name can say a lot about a person. God throughout history has given names to people that have a specific meaning tied to their lives. How about the name Barack Obama? Let us take a look at what may be hiding beneath the surface.
Jesus says in Luke 10:18, “…I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.”
The Hebrew Strongs word (H1299) for “lightning”: “bârâq” (baw-rawk)
In Isaiah chapter 14, verse 14, we read about Lucifer (Satan) saying in his heart:
“I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.”
In the verses in Isaiah that refer directly to Lucifer, several times it mentions him falling from the heights or the heavens. The Hebrew word for the heights or heavens used here is Hebrew Strongs 1116: “bamah”–Pronounced (bam-maw’)
In Hebrew, the letter “Waw” or “Vav” is often transliterated as a “U” or “O,” and it is primarily used as a conjunction to join concepts together. So to join in Hebrew poetry the concept of lightning (Baraq) and a high place like heaven or the heights of heaven (Bam-Maw), the letter “U” or “O” would be used. So, Baraq “O” Bam-Maw or Baraq “U” Bam-Maw in Hebrew poetry similar to the style written in Isaiah, would translate literally to “Lightning from the heights.” The word “Satan” in Hebrew is a direct translation, therefore “Satan.”
When Jesus said to His disciples in Luke 10:18 that He saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven, if this were to be stated by a Jewish Rabbi today influenced by the poetry in the book of Isaiah, he would say these words in Hebrew–the words of Jesus in Luke 10:18 as, and I saw Satan as Baraq O Bam-Maw.
Malie and Natasha are the names of Obama’s daughters. If we write those names backward (the devil does things in reverse) it would be “ailam ahsatan”. Now if we remove the letters that spell “Alah” (Allah being the false god of Islam), we would get “I am Satan”. Mere coincidence? I do not believe so!
Obama’s campaign logo when he ran as President of the US in the year 2008 was a sun over the horizon in the west, with the landscape as the flag of the United States. In Islam, they have their own messiah that they are waiting for called the 12th Imam, or the Mahdi (the Antichrist of the Bible), and one prophecy concerning this man’s appearance is the sun rising in the west.
“Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth—to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people— saying with a loud voice, ‘Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.'” (Revelation 14:6-7)
Why have the words of Jesus in His Gospel accounts regarding His death, burial, and resurrection, been translated into over 3,000 languages, and nothing comes close (the Quran about 110 languages)? Because the same Spirit of God (YHVH) who created all people likewise transcends all people; therefore the power of His Word is not limited by people; while all other religions are man-made, therefore they tend to primarily stay within their own culture. The same God who speaks to all people through His creation of the heavens and earth that draws all people around the world likewise has sent His Word to the ends of the earth so that we may come to personally know Him to be saved in spirit and in truth through His Son Jesus Christ.
Jesus stands alone among the other religions that say to rightly weigh the scales of good and evil and to make sure you have done more good than bad in this life. Is this how we conduct ourselves justly in a court of law? Bearing the image of God, is this how we project this image into reality?
Our good works cannot save us. If we step before a judge, being guilty of a crime, the judge will not judge us by the good we have done, but rather by the crimes we have committed. If we as fallen humanity, created in God’s image, pose this type of justice, how much more a perfect, righteous, and Holy God?
God has brought down His moral laws through the 10 commandments given to Moses at Mt. Siani. These laws were not given so we may be justified, but rather that we may see the need for a savior. They are the mirror of God’s character of what He has written in our hearts, with our conscious bearing witness that we know that it is wrong to steal, lie, dishonor our parents, murder, and so forth.
We can try and follow the moral laws of the 10 commandments, but we will never catch up to them to be justified before a Holy God. That same word of the law given to Moses became flesh about 2,000 years ago in the body of Jesus Christ. He came to be our justification by fulfilling the law, living a sinless perfect life that only God could fulfill.
The gap between us and the law can never be reconciled by our own merit, but the arm of Jesus is stretched out by the grace and mercy of God. And if we are to grab on, through faith in Him, He will pull us up being the one to justify us. As in the court of law, if someone steps in and pays our fine, even though we are guilty, the judge can do what is legal and just and let us go free. That is what Jesus did almost 2,000 years ago on the cross. It was a legal transaction being fulfilled in the spiritual realm by the shedding of His blood with His last word’s on the cross crying out, “It is finished!” (John 19:30).
For God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked (Ezekiel 18:23). This is why in Isaiah chapter 53, where it speaks of the coming Messiah and His soul being a sacrifice for our sins, why it says it pleased God to crush His only begotten Son.
This is because the wrath that we deserve was justified by being poured out upon His Son. If that wrath was poured out on us, we would all perish to hell forever. God created a way of escape by pouring it out on His Son whose soul could not be left in Hades but was raised and seated at the right hand of God in power.
So now when we put on the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 13:14), where God no longer sees the person who deserves His wrath, but rather the glorious image of His perfect Son dwelling in us, justifying us as if we received the wrath we deserve, making a way of escape from the curse of death; now being conformed into the image of the heavenly man walking in a new nature, and no longer in the image of the fallen man Adam.
Now what we must do is repent and put our trust and faith in the savior, confessing and forsaking our sins, and to receive His Holy Spirit that we may be born again (for Jesus says we must be born again to see and enter the Kingdom of God in John chapter 3). This is not just head knowledge of believing in Jesus, but rather receiving His words, taking them to heart, so that we may truly be transformed into the image of God. Where we no longer live to practice sin, but rather turn from our sins and practice righteousness through faith in Him in obedience to His Word by reading the Bible.
Our works cannot save us, but they can condemn us; it is not that we earn our way into everlasting life, but that we obey our Lord Jesus Christ:
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ (Matthew 7:21-23)
“And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him.” (Hebrews 5:9)
“Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, ‘Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.’
Then He who sat on the throne said, ‘Behold, I make all things new.’ And He said to me, ‘Write, for these words are true and faithful.’
And He said to me, ‘It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.'” (Revelation 21:1-8)
