Prisoner of hope

Everyone who came to Jesus always left healed, prosperous and blessed. We are under the waterfall of God's grace because Jesus has done the hardest part. The things that we want in this life are easy to achieve because Jesus did the hardest part.

God gave up His Son, His only Son, the Son whom He loved. God did the hardest part so that today, we can receive all the blessings easily.

There is no other good news other than the gospel of Grace. It is the gospel of Christ. It is so good! It is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes. The power of God to our health, wholeness and healing comes through the gospel. The good news reveals the righteousness of God. The gospel is a revelation of the gift of righteousness. The righteous shall live by faith. Jesus is the end of the law. Jesus came not to destroy the law but to fulfil it. When Jesus fulfilled the law, it was a perfect fulfilment. We can be a rascal and still receive from God.

I am the righteousness of God in Jesus. We have our fruit unto holiness. When we believe right, we will live right. True holiness is from inside - we receive from God a new set of "want-to"s. God will not design a gospel that does not produce holiness. The gospel meets all our needs.

Sin shall not have dominion over us because we are not under law but under grace.

By Adam's disobedience, we were made sinners and by Jesus' obedience, we are made righteous. God sees us a righteous because of Jesus. Adam's sin brought death into our lives. Jesus' obedience brought righteousness.

Let us practise right believing. We are the righteousness of God based on Jesus' obedience.

The devil builds strongholds in our minds. Do not put your eyes on your obedience or lack of it. Being every thought into the obedience of Christ. It was His obedience that made us righteous and puts us in a position to be able to receive. Those who receive abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness will reign in life through Jesus Christ.

Those who live under the flesh are living under the law. We are living under grace and we are irreversibly saved. God will put us in the right place at the right time. Having been set free from sin, we become slaves of righteousness. Stop doing wrong and start doing right. When we fail today, we are still righteous. The blood of Jesus is permanent; it gives us eternal forgiveness. You can choose who you want to believe but you cannot choose the result. If ever we call upon Jesus, we are saved eternally.

Jesus made it easy for us but it was not easy for Him.

Our prayers are always heard. Because of the blood of Jesus, God will set us free. We are in the stronghold of righteousness. We are prisoners of hope and we expect good things to happen to us this coming week. Today, God will restore double to us!

Faith is the substance of things hoped for. I am in Christ, not because of my obedience but because of Jesus. As such, a thousand may fall at my side and ten thousand at my right hand but it shall not come near me.

When God shuts a door, it is because He has a bigger and better door to be opened to us. Trust God! He watches over us and He plans for us. We can never lose this righteousness. It is all written on the stripes on the back of Jesus. It was His wounds that gave us the prison exchange from sin to righteousness.
