Mathew 3:10 to 12.
" The axe is laid to the root of the trees."
Please look at this scripture and consider prayerfully in context.
What does this scripture mean ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
While you have enjoyed operating in the new man, the righteous bloodwashed new creation inner man that cannot sin,( because it is totally filled by the spirit of a holy
God. Legally and spiritually you are redeemed thru faith in the shed blood of Jesus,the lamb of God who takes away the sins of the
world. And you have been "made the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.") and more amazing, You
are now "seated with Christ in heavenly places". Being
seated with christ is an authorisation of His to use His authority and His name Jesus, in kingdom dominion and more. Lock this thought
in. Stay with it! Write it on the table of your heart. Jesus said, "come boldly to the throne of grace " and bring your petitions, bring your thanks and praise. Your heavenly Father waits for you to come with
more love for you than you can imagine. But as wonderful as this fact is, and we should remind ourselves of His grace and love,
from time to time the old sin nature will rear its ugly head and you will be afflicted. It will find ways to resist the spirit of god. It will lead you back into sin. Having suffered many falls, it will cause you great sorrow and Satan will enjoy condemming you! Your guilt could cause you to feel so defeated, that you could start to doubt your salvation, and become depressed.
Confess your sin,
and believe Jesus will forgive you. Give thanks to him for his mercy, and move on with thanks and praise.
" There is no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus who walk every day in the Spirit of the Lord." ( You are walking in the spirit by confessing your sin and claiming the blood of Jesus, the lamb of God, over your whole life and habits.) Asking the Lord to reveal to you why you are falling will help, or, what you
need to avoid will help. Deal thoroughly with what He shows you.
Compulsive liar, or thief or drunk, are just some examples of sin that may filter into the cup of your life. Some mind/sins are anxiety, fear, doubt,
unbelief and confusion, which are the opposite to faith.
( Don't ever
let these nest in your head.)
"The fearful and the unbelieving shall have their part in the lake of fire.")
But there is a
way to allow Jesus to give you victory over such sins !!!! The principle of
" laying the axe to the root of the trees."
It has everything to do with "repentance towards God ", and a desire to turn
from all sin. It includes the believer's " baptism in water by immersion in the name of Jesus" ( as a believer of sufficient age to fully understand what he is doing according to the scriptures). This significant act of obedience demonstrates
our desire to follow Jesus and the ministry honoured by Jesus of John the Baptist, so ......
Let's just have done with the old sin nature once and for all! (It's difficult dealing with one besetting sin at a time.) So
we can chop the whole forrest of sin trees down all together, by asking Jesus to run His spiritual bulldozer over the whole forrest of trees, uprooting them.
This is how you can "lay
the axe to the root of the trees," and then, ......
we can call the fire of God down on these pesky roots to be burned to ashes by the mighty power and grace of
Jesus. Never doubt that the believer has been given this authority in His mighty name. Some people experience the
" Baptism in the Holy spirit and with fire" that John the Baptist spoke of, as they come up out of the water, when they are baptised in water by immersion. The sign gift for this power gift, is speaking in tongues. This unlearned language
is by the power of the Holy Spirit. ( We may ask for the interpretation of the words). This gift is one of the mysteries spoken of in the New Testament and involves praise worship and prayers to the glory of God Allmighty. It is involved in edifying the
new creation inner man also.
Back to "Laying the axe to the root of the trees"
You can be free! "He whom the Son sets free is free indeed."
If you neglect to take action, you can be sure that a Holy God will convict you of your sin ....... so let's do it right now!
Conviction is a devine reminder,- for your protection.
( Condemnation on the other hand is from Satan, and just makes you feel bad! ) So ......
lets just take authority
over Satan now, "I bind your power in Jesus Name."
Lord Jesus of Nazareth, I ask you to " stretch forth your
mighty hand, with signs, wonders and miracles, according to the spirit and power of God, so that all these people, reading right now, will be set free and never be the same again.
Thank you Jesus. Glory be to God.
" Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God allmighty!"
" Holy is His Name. " Thank you Jesus.
Jesus, our merciful high priest.
"Great is thy faithfullness Lord unto me ".
"Heaven and earth are full of your glory".
If you still crave the reassurance
of the Father's love for you? - Just personally, for you alone?
The Father loves you!!! We can meditate on the scriptures that teach us of His Love. Look at www.altruistico.wordpress.com. Next look for "posts about books of the Bible" for an audio, a beautiful, music backed video featuring this. Open to "People healing
people" then scroll down till you see a pink rose on the right side of the screen on the video.It is such a blessing.
"The love of God is shed abroard in our hearts by the Holy Ghost." God bless you.
