Preaching about right living doesn’t produce right living.
If you attempt to live right but have wrong believing, you can’t do it.
If you are experiencing toxic emotions, it shows that there is wrong believing somewhere.
Our beliefs determine our thoughts, our thoughts determine our emotions and our emotions determine our actions.
It doesn’t take the anointing to preach the Law. It takes the Holy Spirit’s anointing to preach grace.
John 3 – About Nicodemus, the “master of Israel”.
Jesus talked to Nicodemus like a theologian, and yet He told Nicodemus that he needed to be born again.
John 4 – About the sinner woman. Jesus never told her that she needed to be born again.
He used natural illustrations to talk to her.
Jesus revealed Himself as the Messiah to the woman.
You will never know that you are loved until the person knows everything about you and still says “I love you”.
Christianity is not about behavior modification. It’s about heart transformation.
We are saved and justified without works, but by faith.
The Law presupposes man’s strength. God knew that man cannot keep the Law.
The Law is all about “you shall not”.
The New Covenant of grace is all about “I will” – it’s about who God is and what He will do.
God dealt with Israel by grace when He brought them out from Egypt.
When Israel was given the Law, they immediately broke the first commandment – they made and worshipped the golden calf.
The Law caused man to boast in his own strength and it led to sin.
Confess every morning: “I am the righteousness of God in Christ”.
Everything in heaven works by faith. Faith is the currency of heaven.
When you’re sick you confess health.
When you’re in financial need, confess provision.
When you sin, confess your righteousness – “I am the righteousness of God in Christ!”
Even when you are in the midst of sin, example:
watching pornography, confess that you are the righteousness of God in Christ.
The devil will tell you that you’re a hypocrite, but confess your righteousness anyway!
