All we have is thanks to our Lord Jesus Christ. (30/03/2021)

All we have is thanks to our Lord Jesus Christ. (30/03/2021)

We will be talking, as always, about something we all do know, but we don’t always live by it. You know everything. It’s written down and it’s true. People know everything and there is nothing new to say about it. There is only a fact of recalling them what they know to bring it back to the way they think and to applying it in their life.

At Malachi 4:5-6, we can read: “Behold, I am going to send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of the Lord. He will turn the hearts of the fathers back to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers, so that I will not come and strike the land with complete destruction.”

We have in prophecy that before the Lord Jesus Christ’s coming, he will come in the spirit of Elijah. Or, otherwise said, Elijah will come to prepare people for an encounter with Jesus Christ. And when he came, he preached repentance to them and they were baptized while confessing their sins.

There was such a thing as an offering with which they were to go to the priest and he was to make a sin offering. They went to John and John dipped them in water, and they confessed their sins.

There was something that was of great importance to people. Something was really starting to change in them. Their attitudes and approach were changing; various people were coming to John and were asking him what to do.

Something very precious begins to happen. People have started to be interested in their lives and they have a need for changes to occur in their lives.

Various people, also Pharisees, come. Overall, there was a flurry. Even though John was in the wilderness, people were looking for him there and they heard the great words that he preached.

Matthew 3:3 “The voice of one calling out in the wilderness, ‘prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight!’ (…) At that time Jerusalem was going out to him, and all Judea and all the region around the Jordan; and they were being baptized by him in the Jordan River, as they confessed their sins.”

There is a tremendous excitement and that is what God does. Without Him, if a man went and did something, no one would pay attention to him. John wasn’t an impressive and desirable man at all. He was a man who was specifically sent to do this. He was sent and God was with him, so God brought people so that they could listen to John and understand that there was happening an important issue.

John also said: “As for me, I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I am not fit to remove His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.”

We’ve said it many times that for John Jesus Christ was someone so mighty and so great compared to John and that’s why he was saying that he wasn’t worthy even to untie the latchet on His sandals. And this is something that often doesn’t function at all in believers. They have no respect for Jesus at all. Jesus exists and that’s all – a man does whatever he wants. He is unaware of who Jesus is. It’s horrible that John knew with whom he was dealing, while among the believers hardly anyone knew that fact. Some Jesus exists and the man lives his own way, does whatever he wants, prays without concentrating for something to happen and it’s enough for him that he did something for the Lord.

John shows that this is not the case at all. If the man is aware of who Jesus is, then he knows that he isn’t worthy to untie the latchet on His sandals. There is such a big difference. Only Jesus is able to close this gap – no man is able to do it. Only Jesus can humble himself to us so that we can come in contact with Him. This is very important to remember about it.

Matthew 3:13-17 “Then Jesus arrived from Galilee at the Jordan, coming to John to be baptized by him. But John tried to prevent Him, saying, “I have the need to be baptized by You, and yet You are coming to me?” But Jesus, answering, said to him, “Allow it at this time; for in this way it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he allowed Him. After He was baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove and settling on Him, and behold, a voice from the heavens said, “This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.”

Here, we can see Jesus going and submitting to this baptism. Why is He going there? This is the baptism of repentance. This is not the baptism for the saints, but it’s the baptism for people who commit sins and need God to cleanse them from their sins. By confessing these sins, they expected their guilt to be forgiven by God.

If the Lord Jesus hadn’t entered this water of baptism and if he hadn’t done it, everything John did wouldn’t have made any sense. Without Jesus, it would just be an ordinary immersion in water and nothing else. It’s as if someone made it up and immersed someone. If there is nobody who is responsible for making it have a driving force, it has no power. Just ordinary water and ordinary immersion.

But when Jesus went there and he let himself be immersed, He validated every immersion that John immersed every man. Then, this immersion was considered to be valid and one could expect the significance of that immersion – the baptism for repentance. If Jesus hadn’t gone there, there wouldn’t have been any validation. The fact that Jesus went there made that He, who is pure and holy, immersed himself so that all the dirty people might have repentance.

It’s the same thing when we have seen many times people who have repented, have experienced purification and liberation because it was Jesus who gave them the power and the possibility to make it work. Without Him nothing can work.

Isaiah 53:6 “All of us, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; but the Lord has caused the wrongdoing of us all to fall on Him.” Jesus had to go there so as the baptism had an impact on people. There had to be a spiritual touch so that people would know that something had changed in them and they needed to know Jesus Christ.

Everywhere, whatever is to have the driving force, Jesus must be there. He has to give it the driving force. The Son has to appear in this place so that we, dirty people, can take advantage of this place. Jesus, who is pure and holy, had to accept the fact that we had made mistakes and God would punish Him for our sins thus forgiving us. Jesus burdens himself with the things that happened there. He accepts what happened in that water where people were confessing their sins in order to be baptized with the baptism of repentance.

Likewise, no offering, no ox and sheep, no dove mattered. We could offer them the sacrifice by the thousands and they didn’t matter at all. The significance was given by Jesus Christ when He himself, as the Lamb of God, gave his own life. He made the previous sacrifices offered by Jews meaningful. If He hadn’t offered himself a sacrifice, all the other sacrifices would have been meaningless. An Israelite would do something that really doesn’t matter, because the blood of oxen and goats can’t purify people from their sins. However, God told them to come and offer these sacrifices. And they indicated that one day the One who had given validity to these sacrifices would be sacrificed. He was intended to come and be sacrificed even before the creation of the world. Jesus was ready and He came.

In order to be valid, everything that happens in God’s matters needs the Son of God to do it the way God the Father wants to receive from us – with a given sacrifice or with the fruit of lips confessing His name. Man must understand that Jesus becomes greater and greater in our understanding. We understand more and more how powerful He is and when He came and made everything valid so that everything can be approved. When they asked God for forgiveness, He forgave them, but not because they sacrificed thousands of oxen and goats. He was paying attention to the sacrifice of His Son that was to be offered. So when they were sacrificing thousands of oxen and goats, God was paying attention to Jesus, to the pure sacrifice and not to the defiled or tainted animal. It had to be an animal that would point to His wonderful Son and who was just a makeshift and a shadow of the glory of Jesus Christ.

Whatever good we do, whether we pray or sing, it doesn’t really matter if we don’t take advantage of the fact that Jesus really prayed first and he really sang first; and only our singing and our prayers are approved by the Father if offered in His name. Even the finest songs, games and prayers are meaningless if Jesus Christ isn’t present there. However, when we come in victorious Jesus Christ, then we are accepted – in His name.

He had to come here and really pray. He had to come here and really sing for God to be perfectly glorified. Because everything that’s for God must be perfect. If we can understand it, then we understand why Jesus went and let John to immerse Him. In order to approve what John was doing, Jesus had to take responsibility for that. Their sins weren’t left in the water or anywhere else; it was Jesus who had to take them on. He, who wasn’t guilty of anything, was ready to go where our guilt is transferred to Him. He has burdened himself with our sins and diseases. He went there so that we could really be the ones who accept the power of this action in a spiritual experience. Answers to prayers – without Him, there is no answer. God won’t answer any man’s prayer if there is no presence of His Son there and if the Son isn’t praised.

If someone doesn’t worship or praise the Son, God doesn’t regard such a person. A man can do whatever he or she wants, but Jesus is to be praised. Only in Jesus it’s possible for us to be accepted. Through His Blood, we have access to the Most Holy Place and we are heard in His name. Everything must happen thanks to Jesus Christ. And if He hadn’t come here and made it full and filled with His victory, it wouldn’t have worked at all. Everything would be religion.

If people pull away from Christ, they pull away from everything they need to save themselves on this earth. Without Jesus, nothing has value. That’s why people can go to some masses, gatherings, etc., but it doesn’t have any value without Jesus. Only Jesus can give value to something. If you pray abiding in Jesus’ prayer and if you are cleansed by His sacrifice, then it’s completely different. The prayer is offered in Spirit and in Truth. It’s not a prayer of an old man who makes up something. Therefore, if it is to be of value, Jesus must be first everywhere. He gives value to everything that the Father wants to see in this matter. He also gives value to preaching, to cleansing ourselves from sins and to sacralizing. He gives value to the Cross so that we can experience, in the power of the Cross, that our death is there, that He had to die so that we could die in Him. Nothing makes sense without Him. Everything has to be in the place He was before us.

Jesus, as He was approaching, was saying: Follow me. If anyone wants to come after Him, he must deny himself, take up his cross and come after Him, and follow Him. Follow me, it means: Come after me where I entered, where I achieved it all, where I did it as the Father desired and you follow me, and benefit by me in everything.

You see, the body pushes himself to be in that place, to be visible, to gain some glory from what’s going to happen. And then, nothing will happen unless it’s for evil, not for good. But when it is as John says: I am not even fit to untie the straps of Jesus’ sandals; if I am aware of the great value He gave to what I will do thanks to Him, then I respect Him. In fact, it’s not a slogan saying in Jesus name; it’s real and it’s with the awareness that it has any value only thanks to Jesus.

It’s like someone gives you a check for something and it’s signed, but this person had to collect some funds in the bank first so that you can go and pick them up. He validated this check and He has the resources so that you can go and take them. It’s the same thing with everything. He gives us the right, He tells us to pray, but He had to gain all the measures so that our prayer would be accepted by the Father and so that it would be the prayer of holy people who belong to God.

If Jesus isn’t perceived in us as He is, although our recognition is that we know Him according to how He was on earth. One day we will know Him as He is, but it proclaims about His glory and greatness to worship and respect Him in that way. We should submit to His orders without complaining, without murmuring, but we should do it with all our heart and openness because our life and eternity are given to us in His orders. So whatever we say, we have to do it for Jesus, but first it was Jesus who had to do it before us so that we could do it thanks to Him. It shouldn’t be in the way that we are the first to do something and He approves it afterwards. He approved it by being there before us and doing what is perfectly pleasant to the Father. It’s not very good, but it’s perfectly pleasant to the Father. That’s why, a space was created there for me and you so that we could benefit from what Jesus has done. So we can pray, sing and read thanks to Jesus.

Notice that when you read thanks to Jesus and when you read thanks to yourself, there are two different types of reading. When you read as He read, then it opens up to you. And when you read it by your own way, then everything is closed to you. You read, but you don’t actually know what you read. If Jesus hadn’t read, we would have never been able to read the Bible. So wherever there is anything good and useful, Jesus must have done it perfectly.

Luke 4:1-2. We see Jesus in the wilderness.

“Now Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led around by the Spirit in the wilderness for forty days, being tempted by the devil. And He ate nothing during those days, and when they had ended, He was hungry.”

We can assume that this main attack was Jesus’ final time in the wilderness. But why was He tempted? Because of you and me – having won over these temptations, He could give us the opportunity to overcome these temptations. Jesus Christ is, both for me and you, the way out in temptation. If He hadn’t won with temptation, we wouldn’t have had a chance. He must create a place for us so that we, believing in Him, could prevail over the devil when he tempts us. Due to the fact that He was the first in temptation and that He won, now I, believing in Him, seeing the might and glory of His victory, and being nourished by Him, win too. I benefit from the place of glory and victory. There is no other way to do it. Because if we try to be Christians without nourishing from Jesus Christ, we break up. We can’t obtain anything without Jesus.

When a man tries to do something on his own and in his own way, he crashes into it and says: it doesn’t work, I’m not satisfied with it. Start seeing Jesus, start seeing this place of glory and victory where Jesus won over the devil by faith, watch this place and then benefit from it. And then your faith gives you victory because Jesus has won. We benefit from Jesus, not from ourselves.

Many people say: I have to fix myself. An alcoholic who wants to fix himself tries to do something and says: it doesn’t work because it’s so hard. It’s possible only thanks to Jesus. Therefore, the righteous one will live by faith, but looking at Christ. When we look at Him and see every place I will go, He’s already been there. And He has won in this place. He has won everything for me and you so that we, believing in Him, would also gain the victory.

We must look at the Author and Finisher of our faith, knowing that when the devil tempted Him, He won in everything. Who is Jesus Christ for me then? How great is the One who is ready to enter into this experience also to create for us the space for victory over the devil. Someone had to defeat the devil to create the place of victory.

All people fail; this is the place of failure, everyone loses. And here, the Lord came and won everything so that we could rejoice: There’s a victory!!! Don’t rely on your mind. Believe what Jesus has done, believe in Jesus. And then, by believing in Jesus, you gain that victory and start thinking like a winner. You benefit from the victory and begin to win over temptation. And it’s not happening by your strength or anything – Jesus won. That’s why, you thank God for Jesus because you see that whatever you come across, you know that Jesus has already won it so that you could also be the winner in God’s things.

Let’s go back to Isaiah 53:3-5. Therefore, John could say: It’s me who needs a baptism from You. How precious it is when Jesus Christ doesn’t lose our respect, but we perceive more and more who He really is and what He has done for me and you. Getting to know Him is something very important for us.

“He was despised and abandoned by men, a man of great pain and familiar with sickness; and like one from whom people hide their faces, He was despised, and we had no regard for Him. However, it was our sicknesses that He Himself bore, and our pains that He carried; yet we ourselves assumed that He had been afflicted, struck down by God, and humiliated. But He was pierced for our offenses, He was crushed for our wrongdoings; the punishment for our well-being was laid upon Him, and by His wounds we are healed.”

He was punished for our salvation. He burdened Himself with our punishment. He had to burden Himself with our punishment so that we could be saved. And when the time of punishment comes, we hope that we won’t be punished, we won’t be brought to court where penalties for human life will be awarded. But we hope that we may experience today that He burdened Himself with it so that I, benefiting from that, would be a free person today, would live for God and would be grateful for Christ.

Hebrews 4:15 “ For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things just as we are, yet without sin.”

One who has been tempted in all things just as we are. Thus, He entered our whole earthly experience to achieve victory for us.

May the Lord help us not to be self-reliant Christians, but to be Christians, disciples of Jesus who completely pin their hopes on Him in everything; to be disciples who don’t take the Lord’s name because they have become accustomed to it, but the ones who call Him because they need Him. This is completely different thing. You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain. You shall not embrace the Gospel in vain, but you shall embrace it because of Jesus. You shall embrace this salvation. It can’t be a Bible story, but it should be the reality of your daily drawing of strength to live on this planet and not get tempted by the devil; not to be a mistreated, beaten, trampled over man, but to be the man who benefits every day from who Jesus Christ is. The man who feeds on Him and who drinks His blood. He suffered like us, but He had never sinned.

When we think about it, let’s think where did Jesus Christ come from? From Heaven. He was in Heaven, He was with His heavenly Father and He was happy. He was fine, so He had no need to come to earth. But He came because we felt bad. He cherished us and came from heaven, from this great place, became a man like us to win everything. See how the devil is perfidious and tricky; you read the Bible, but he keeps you all the time from accepting what Jesus Christ did. You try to do something, but you don’t benefit from Jesus. You want to pray and you try it again. Do you understand? But when you benefit from Jesus, when you pin your hopes on Him, then the power that He gained for you in this place, the power of the victory over adversities, the opening the Father’s heart which Jesus was achieving by praying on earth, by walking before the Father constantly is the perfect place for us to praise God here by abiding in Christ and by belonging to Him.

 Our independent Christianity must get lost, there is no other option. This is a war in which the Son of God took part and the devil who deceived us, tricked us, oppressed us and introduced us into different disgusting things. And then, Jesus came and won with him. Everyone who believes, who trusts in Him, who sees His glory and greatness, who, in admiration and faith, submits to what Jesus did, rests on His victory, not on his or her own thinking or manner, but on what Jesus did. When the man keeps to the glory of the victorious Son by faith, then your heart and your mind are filled with glory. You are nourished from Heaven and you experience that everything is possible for you thanks to Jesus; that Jesus was on earth, that He won and you don’t try to climb the mountains on your own while Jesus has already made it. Everything belongs to us because He came to us out of love so that we wouldn’t have to die here still trying on our own.

When John immersed these people, if it weren’t for Jesus, it would have been a simple immersion. The man immersed people and that’s it. Nothing would change. On the spiritual levels, these people would have been the same. But it changed thanks to Jesus. They did it, they were called by God. He reconciled sons with fathers because they began to apologize. What God said began to happen between them. God was behind it, but His Son had to accept this place for it to happen.

He came to the earth from Heaven. He came to a terribly contaminated place. We aren’t aware of how contaminated the earth is. We are unable to properly evaluate the contamination of the earth. However, if God showed you the contamination of this earth in the spiritual layers, it would terrify you. This whole earth is contaminated and it’s horrifying how contaminated it is. It’s contaminated by unbelief, fear, anxiety and envy. Everything without presence of Jesus is contaminated. None of these things are present in Jesus. There was neither anxiety, nor fear, nor concern, nor malice in Him. There was nothing in Him – He was the only one pure. All the earth was dirty. Everyone sinned and people lack the glory of God. And one appeared – the pure one. He was perfectly pure and He walked everywhere on this earth and prevailed everywhere over the devil so that you and me could be sure that we have victory in Jesus Christ. So that we would cleave to Him with trust, hope and faith, and with grateful heart call His name being sure that He came to save us and not to show that He is greater than us, but He is immeasurably greater! However, He washed feet of disciples showing them that although He was Lord and Master, He came to save us.

May Jesus be my and your hope and that the enemy won’t take it away from us. You can learn the Bible, sing and pray, and still be away from Jesus. If the enemy pushes the man away so much that he will more rely on the achieved righteousness and not on Christ’s righteousness, he will err because our own righteousness is a measly structure. However, Jesus’ righteousness is perfect.

Do we have righteousness by faith or by works? We have righteousness by faith in Christ. Not by works so that no one should boast. Jesus made it for me and you. So praise Jesus, enjoy Him and glorify Him. May the Lord help us to let go of what the enemy ties people up on earth nowadays. People know a lot of things, but they don’t live what they know. When something happens, they take responsibility for it instead of admitting that it was Jesus who had won before them. You don’t have to be afraid – you have the victory. That’s why it’s written that those who believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God are victorious. They believe that Jesus is the Son of God and they triumph. They believe that they already have the victory over the world in Jesus Christ. They don’t think: “maybe I will win, maybe not” – Jesus won so the man, believing in Jesus, says: “I won too because I am a part of Him, I am the part of His body”. I am no longer any citizen, but I am the part of the Body of Jesus Christ and I belong to Him. When He won, I won too. When the Head has led the whole Body to the victory, the whole Body is also filled with victory.

John 3: 13-15 “No one has ascended into heaven, except He who descended from heaven: the Son of Man. And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, so that everyone who believes will have eternal life in Him.”

In this passage, Jesus speaks of believing in Him. I have every good deed in Jesus Christ and so do you. We don’t have good deeds – it’s Jesus who has good deeds. He is affluent and we need Him. We are poor and He has everything to make us rich. We benefit from Jesus to be richer and richer. He is filled with glory and we receive the glory from Him. We benefit from Jesus in everything and then we are winners. Then, everything goes right in our spiritual life because this is what the Father has decided: everything is in His Son, in Jesus Christ.

Whoever praises His Son, who respects and worships Him, also worships the Father. The Son did everything the Father wanted. He’s a perfect Son of a perfect Father. The perfect Father has sent His perfect Son to do everything perfectly that the Father wants and to give it to us.

Let’s rejoice in it and let’s belong to Him with a grateful heart. John understood how great was the One who came after him. May we also understand even more how great is He who came from Heaven to become a man and to save us. He endured everything: offences and temptations with which we are tempted too. He won everything. The enemy had to admit his failure everywhere and Jesus said: the ruler of this world has nothing in me. Pure, perfectly pure. This is our Hope and this is our Salvation.

No matter how many good deeds we do, we won’t save ourselves. However, good deeds are the result of salvation in Jesus Christ. And when we do them casually, without attributing any glory to ourselves, we benefit from Jesus because He deserves glory for all good. So let’s do Christ’s good to one another. Then, we will do them even better and better and we will be more and more open to seeing more and more good things happen.

When we look at the law and when the man sinned, the sequence was as follows: man repented of that sin, he confessed, he forsook it and came with a sacrifice to be cleansed and forgiven for that sin. However, it’s different with us. We have a forgiveness which we use when we repent and forsake our sins. We use something that has already happened. All our sins are already forgiven and the sacrifice has been made. However, to benefit from it, we already benefit from it that seeing sin, we repent, remove and the Blood of Jesus cleanses us. We already have forgiveness. It’s like nourishment and cheering up that He has paid off all our debts with one sacrifice, so we already have forgiveness. And the fact that we admit it, we confess this sin to God, He gives us the strength to forsake this sin and let us win.

We have a beautiful experience that Jesus has already paid for it and that sin has already been paid too. He died so He doesn’t have to die again. We have been assured in Grace that we have forgiveness. We also learn to forgive, to have such generosity shown to us that our future debts are also paid, so that we can come and benefit from the wages of our sins. This is an incredible gifting us. Therefore, through lies, the enemy tries to keep people from not accepting forgiveness, so that they keep thinking: And how could I know that God has forgiven me? He has forgiven me. But will man benefit from it by quitting doing bad things? In this case, God met us halfway a lot in His Son and He said in Grace: I forgive you. “He was indulgent about all our sins previously committed.” The sacrifice of Jesus is offered for all our sins – He made us saint with one sacrifice.

We have a great Son of God who has done what’s the most important because He’s the only sacrifice all other sacrifices have indicated. His sacrifice has such a glory that it spills over into all human generations and all people benefited from this one sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Those people who sacrificed various animals, they actually benefited from Jesus Christ. They could go away and experience that something has changed, that something has been done as God said because they confessed and did what God desired. That’s why, God had insight on what they had done – on the humble spirit and coming to God.

You need to be encouraged that the Lord did everything what was necessary so that you wouldn’t have to walk and wonder: Is it possible? You just need to walk with gratitude that it is possible! Walk with a fulfilled and joyful heart that everything is possible for a person who believes in Jesus Christ. Don’t be afraid and don’t doom to failure something what achieves always the victory – whoever believes in Jesus Christ always wins.

Luke 12:49-50 “I have come to cast fire upon the earth; and how I wish it were already kindled! But I have a baptism to undergo, and how distressed I am until it is accomplished!”

 Again, Jesus speaks of baptism, that He is to be baptized and He is anguished until it’s fulfilled. Because of me and you, He is in great experience, He bears every day our various bad experiences and He wins in them, He defeats the enemy, He tramples on all the devil’s ideas so that you can trample them too and so that you have the space of glory and of victorious life; by defeating the devil thanks to Jesus Christ, not thanks to your power or strength, but because you know that Jesus did it. It should be the most important aspect. Jesus did it and I can benefit from it too. It’s not that I will do it because I can do it too. I benefit from what Jesus did; then everything is going well. The man grows, develops, wins and defeats the enemy. What’s more, spiritual things happen in human’s life, the fruit of the holy spirit fills him because man doesn’t rely on himself, but on Jesus. Jesus is the most important.

Man loves Jesus, enjoys His company, doesn’t have to do anything at a push because Jesus is the most important for this man. He may lose everything, but not Jesus. Then, it means that we look correctly at Jesus and who He is. The Father wants all eyes to be looked up to His Son and that we know what His Son has done and derive victory and nourishment from it. That’s why, Paul, quitting his sins and burdens, said: let’s look unto Christ, the Author and Finisher of our faith. Let’s run after Him and rejoice.

Jesus speaks of baptism. He says that there will be something happening that is the most terrifying experience for Him that could occur in His life. He, who is perfect, holy and always pure, the Lamb of God will have to burden Himself with our sins so that we may be baptized one day in the name of Jesus Christ and so that this baptism was relevant for us as it should be, i.e. immersion into death and rising to a new life.

He had to burden Himself with our sins and this is the biggest horribleness. He, who is the pure Lamb, had to take it upon Himself. Our sins separated Him from the Father so that we, being immersed in water in the name of Jesus, could be immersed in His death and that we could begin a new life with our debts cleared off. Released from all relations of darkness, with forgiveness from Heaven, with a promise of help in everything to lead a new life only in His name.

If Jesus hadn’t burdened Himself with it, we would have been immersed millions of times and nothing would have changed. This water would have given us nothing. And we have seen many times the man who came with faith… That’s why it’s important: Do you believe with all your heart that Jesus was the Son of God? People say: “I believe”, but, to be honest, they often don’t believe at all. As people believe that He is the Son of God, they accept that everything is given in the Son of God.

This is not about saying a slogan, it must be as follows: Do you believe that He is the Lamb of God and He died for you; and thanks to that you may be baptized and you will actually be immersed in His death? He accepted you with your sins when going to death so that you could accept Him and die for all these sins as He had died. Like the apostle Paul who writes to the Romans. Since we know that He died to sins, let’s accept the fact that we died in Him to sins too.

We have everything in Jesus to lead a new life. Our life as the life of God’s children, of Christ’s disciples is not about rationally being able to reach great and important things in Christianity. It’s all by faith. It’s all in Christ. If He’s God’s conqueror, if He made everything and gives it to me for free and by grace, then I only have to accept what He gives me. When He allows me to do some things, you have to accept it and do it. Then everything is going very well. The just one will live by faith.

This is the happiest and the greatest solution: He has done everything for us so that we can benefit from it. And everything is perfectly clean. There is nothing shady there. Paul says: we have perfection in Christ and we lead up to this perfection. We have the perfect Son and we lead up to this perfection. He gives us the right in Grace to seek this perfection by looking at Him so that you know what you run for and what you seek.

You lead up to achieve what is in Jesus Christ, what came to us in the victorious Son of God. Jesus Christ had to get into what we deserved.

In Galatians 3:13 “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us - for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree.”

Jesus didn’t become a curse. This word exactly means katara. The word kata means “down” – that someone goes down something and the word ara is a curse. Jesus went down our curse. He didn’t become the curse, but He went down our curse to get us out of this curse. That’s why it’s written: Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree. So it was our curse, we sinned, we were guilty of death and He went down our curse to die and to create us a place of death so that we could die while we’re alive and lead a new life. You don’t have to lead your old life anymore if you believe that Jesus has gone down your curse. He has done it to get you out of your curse and to make you a free man on the earth. He has done it to end your bondage of the devil and give you the possibility to live in God’s presence.

He had to go down there. It was the worst experience for Him because this pure Lamb had to go down the place of all our dirt. He bore our sins on Himself or in Himself to the Calvary Cross. He had to accept it, but it was the worst experience and it isolated Him from the Father for a while. What we were doing isolated Him.

It was a very difficult experience for Him, but He did it. How great is He who did it for you and me. How great is His love when He, who had huge aversion to sin, to evil, to impurity, accepted it out of love for you and me; to pardon us, to set us free from the darkness of our curse. So that we don’t have to walk in despair but so that we may walk as the children of the living God. So that we could be happy and set free people.

Colossians 1:18 “He is also the head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything.” First in everything. He died first so that we might die. He died to get us out of death so that we might live. So let’s live, let’s not waste time when the Son of God went down our curse and got us out of it. By believing in Him, let’s no longer live as the cursed people, but let’s live as the saved ones. Let’s live as God’s children live! Let’s praise the Father in heaven for His Grace and Kindness! Let’s not allow to be mistreated by the devil anymore. When the devil lost, he was destroyed and we were set free. So believe Jesus that it actually happened! Don’t believe the devil that you have to achieve something as you already have it!!! Praise God, rejoice in Jesus and admit how great He is and how much you want to get to know Him. You want to know His greatness, majesty and glory because you understand that He did it for you and you only benefit from Him. What He said, that is to feed on Him and to drink His blood, that’s it. Benefit from Him in everything and live! Have everything in Him and put on Him.

Romans 6:10-11. Believe! Don’t rely on your mind.

“For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all time; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. So you too, consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.”

Let there be no more disbelief and struggling. The Lord paid, The Lord set free so accept forgiveness. Quit what you have to quit. Don’t waste your time, praise the Lord and be happy that Jesus is alive! Jesus is always first and we follow Him. Everything He made is perfect. Now we, by getting into this perfection, accept the influence of the Holy Spirit, pray and look for it because it’s appropriate. The enemy will interrupt us in everything when we will try: I have to do it finally, I have to… You have it in Jesus. You have victory and everything you need to always rejoice in the Lord.

Romans 6:3-4 “Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death? 4 Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too may walk in newness of life.”

The wind blows as it wants and the Holy Spirit blows among God’s children as God wants. They are free, unrestrained, not burdened by heredity because it was all finished on the Cross.

Let’s benefit from Him. Jesus said: I am the Door. Sheep enter by Me and find pasture to feed. He is the Door for all that is perfect. We enter by Him in every place of God’s glory. Let’s derive it all from Him. We remember when He said: You will do nothing without Me, but you can do everything thanks to Me.

When we call the Lord Jesus Christ’s name, let’s think about Whom we call. We are not so mindless that we call someone’s name and we don’t know who we call. Will a great man or maybe a little man come? I don’t know. I call a name, but maybe it will be a child who come. No. We know that whoever calls the name of the Lord will be saved because Jesus is the One who won everything. We must experience it because we need to see Jesus’ victories. We need to see the joy of Jesus, the love of Jesus. We need to experience more and more that it’s not thanks to our strength nor power, but it happens thanks to our Lord.

Romans 6:14 “For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under the Law but under grace.” Redeemed and paid off to live for real. If we neglect Jesus, it’s another thing to consider. However, when we abide in Jesus, benefit from Him, call His name and see His actions and guidance, then praise God for everything He does.

John 1:3 “All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him not even one thing came into being that has come into being.” Neither grace nor love, nor peace, nor joy, nor patience, nor mildness, nor forgiveness, nor reconciliation – everything is in Jesus Christ, everything is thanks to Him and it won’t be otherwise. So if we want to do anything good, we can do it only thanks to Jesus. Only thanks to the One who makes everything perfect.

Colossians 1:19 (and the subsequent ones) “For it was the Father’s good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him, and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross. And although you were previously alienated and hostile in attitude, engaged in evil deeds, yet He has now reconciled you in His body of flesh…” Through everything what Jesus won. “…through death, in order to present you before Him holy and blameless and beyond reproach…” And this is in Christ. “…if indeed you continue in the faith firmly established and steadfast, and not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you have heard, which was proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul, was made a minister.”

If we can say so, our meetings only make sense when Jesus is admired by us more and more. Only then they do make sense. When our mind and our logic become something, then it doesn’t make sense. But when we see Jesus Christ more and more, when we see more and more what we have in Him and we feel more and more that we benefit from it in our daily life, that’s a beautiful experience. Jesus is necessary in us on the earth. He’s necessary to do everything that is pleasing to the Father. He made us perfect with just one sacrifice. That’s Jesus. He makes everything perfect. Even when He frees His people, He does it perfectly. We won’t add anything to it, but we should lead up to it more and more. Develop, grow and enjoy. We already have everything in our Lord. Paul says: “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.”

John 14:1 It’s beautiful what our Lord Jesus says here. He must be first in everything and we ought to follow Him. Remember – never anticipate, don’t be up to no good, follow Him, look at Him and rejoice in what He has made and benefit from it. Learn and use it.

“Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many rooms; if that were not so, I would have told you, because I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I am coming again and will take you to Myself, so that where I am, there you also will be.”

Again, Jesus prepared everything for us on earth perfectly and now, He went to prepare us everything in Heaven. When we benefit from what Jesus has done for us and we do it with a grateful, content, happy, believing heart, then the Spirit of God fills us with all these things more and more. He came to worship Jesus in us and among us. Amen.
