The Lord demands that our faith be placed unequivocally in the Cross of Christ in order for the Holy Spirit to operate on His behalf in our lives. Satan minds not if every channel on our television set preaches another gospel and another Jesus. All of these things which sound good to the carnal mind and tickles the carnal ear are aided and abetted by satan in order to deceive. Truth will actually be preached in order to bring in the lie and have others believe. Deceive is what the devil does and if we don’t think we can be deceived…well, we’re deceived. I’m sure Eve didn’t think she could be deceived either.
“For the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the Law of Sin and Death.” Romans 8:2
With our faith placed solely and exclusively in Jesus Christ and Him crucified; in Who HE is and what HE did at Calvary to pay the penalty of sin (death) for the believing sinner AND break the power of sin for the Saint; the Holy Spirit has the latitude to do a mighty work in our hearts. All of the promises of God are yes and amen according to His Will as we submit ourselves daily unto God and abide in His Way.
God’s Way for man to be Saved is the Cross of Christ.
God’s Way for man to be Sanctified is the Cross of Christ.
Look unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of your faith, and see the Salvation of the Lord; see His glorious light. There IS life and life more abundantly but it is only found when our faith is placed in Jesus Christ and Him crucified for daily living for God and not just for Salvation. Salvation is a wonderful thing. It is the greatest miracle the Lord has ever performed for whosoever will believe. Being Born Again by the Spirit of God affords us all of the promises of God…but these promises are conditional; they are conditional on our faith being placed in the finished work of Christ Jesus – be determined to know nothing else among you.
