I am here to stir up the gift within you, His PURE Mind. You are Holy … Do you believe that?
Jesus said, “Be perfect as your Father in heaven is perfect.”
That is not a work you strive to perform. It is the GRACE gift of His Presence. The substance of all things hoped for. The power of His resurrection in Romans 1:4 …which IS CALLED the Spirit of Holiness. The Pure Mind of Christ.
Jesus silenced the accuser!! Condemnation is judgment with punishment; the beating stick or whip of the accuser! Jesus has already been judged; tied to a whipping post and been beaten not just FOR US but AS US. On the Cross He became the wicked man of sin. In a court of law, a prosecutor never talks about your good points but is there to remind you of all your failures. Walking under the heavy load of condemnation, fear, and stress produces all kinds of sickness. That is why Jesus who is our Advocate silences ALL guilt and condemnation. He paid the price in full and there is no double jeopardy. Christ in you is also the GIFT of NO condemnation.
That is why we are exhorted to “put on the new man” which IS renewed in the knowledge of Christ and in the image of the perfect man. We have been created in righteousness and true holiness, clothed upon with His Glory to walk in Love without fear.
David in Psalms 37:37 reminds us to, “mark the perfect man and His righteousness, because the end of that man is perfect peace,” THAT man is called The Man Christ Jesus in 1 Timothy 2:5. The ONE arbitrator and mediator of God’s eternal merciful covenant, that brought peace to all mankind. You are righteous by the ONE you are in union with no separation. Redeemed means you are no longer in union with sin and death. One Man paid the price. The First Adam paid the price of sin and death. The Last Adam paid for our LIFE in peace and rest with HIS pure mind and the TREE of Life within all mankind. Christ Jesus is the Alpha and Omega from the beginning.
His unfailing love for you, hid the treasure of Himself in your heart and in your life. We see that in Galatians 5:22 the fruit of His Spirit is GOODNESS. That means to BE righteous, holy, and sanctified in your heart and in your life. We return to give thanks and our joy increases rejoicing in His Name that is Holy!! Oh yes, Your Peace Matters to Him. The Gift of NO condemnation and a PURE mind gives us the power to go and sin no more. There is Joy and Peace when we believe we are Holy just like Him without sin.
Always-N-Joy … Joanne
