ONLY JESUS

Only The Lord Can.

z-nothing-impossible-with-god

New Living Translation
Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.” – for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God.

New Living Translation
For nothing is impossible with God.” – A barren woman conceived a son…

With me, or even with you, there’s so much impossibilities. The limited knowledge we know of what’s possible is far outweighed by the impossibility. But if we take it to God – it’s a totally different matter.

Luke 4:18-19 New Living Translation
“The Spirit of the LORD is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free, and that the time of the LORD’s favor has come.”

Jesus did exactly what was written in the Scripture when He Himself read the scroll in the synagogue.

But not everything in this context is physical.

EPHESIANS 6:12 New Living Translation
For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.

2 CORINTHIANS 4:4 New Living Translation
Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.

There are things unseen by the naked eyes. Chains. Prison Cells. Walls. The Oppressor. With these things, ONLY Jesus, our Sovereign Lord can help us. 

ACTS 26:17-18 New Living Translation
And I will rescue you from both your own people and the Gentiles. Yes, I am sending you to the Gentiles to open their eyes, so they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God. Then they will receive forgiveness for their sins and be given a place among God’s people, who are set apart by faith in me.’

Prayer is not enough. You will need to be empowered by the Holy Spirit’s wisdom, knowledge and understanding – something beyond your regular vision can see. You need to find a way to hear the healing, liberating news that you really are loved and forgiven by God, our loving Father. 

2 CORINTHIANS 2:11 New International Version
in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes.

We are not unaware. We know. But we need help. We need power beyond what we have in the physical. We need to fight the battle in Christ – for the Battle is the Lord’s!

Only Jesus. Only Jesus can help. Only Jesus can rescue. Only Jesus can free you!

Saved BUT Undelivered

All Christians are saved.
1-john_1_9
I hope we won’t have to argue about that.
Let’s see. Are we really saved?
  • We believed in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ – that His name is above all names and that all authority in heaven and on earth is given Him. He redeemed us from our sins and cause us to be right in the eyes of God. He is the one and ONLY mediator between us men and God!
ACTS 10:43 New Living Translation
He is the one all the prophets testified about, saying that everyone who believes in him will have their sins forgiven through his name.”
ACTS 4:12 New Living Translation
There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.”
1 TIMOTHY 2:5 New Living Translation
For there is only one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity–the man Christ Jesus.
MATTHEW 28:18 Berean Study Bible
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me.
When you believed our Lord Jesus Christ – you got saved! Others received the baptism (Acts 8:15) later on, and the teachings, but still – saved in the first place.
MARK 16:16 Berean Study Bible
Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.
ROMANS 10:13 Berean Study Bible
for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
ACTS 2:21 Berean Study Bible
And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’
And we can only call on the Lord’s name when we know His name – His being.
ACTS 2:38 Berean Study Bible
Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Repentance is required before the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Repentance, for the forgiveness of sins and baptism of the Holy Spirit, for us to received the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
ROMANS 8

5Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. 6So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace. 7For the sinful nature is always hostile to God. It never did obey God’s laws, and it never will. 8That’s why those who are still under the control of their sinful nature can never please God.

9But you are not controlled by your sinful nature. You are controlled by the Spirit if you have the Spirit of God living in you. (And remember that those who do not have the Spirit of Christ living in them do not belong to him at all.) 10And Christ lives within you, so even though your body will die because of sin, the Spirit gives you lifed because you have been made right with God. 11The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you.

12Therefore, dear brothers and sisters,e you have no obligation to do what your sinful nature urges you to do. 13For if you live by its dictates, you will die. But if through the power of the Spirit you put to death the deeds of your sinful nature,f you will live. 14For all who are led by the Spirit of God are childreng of God.

15So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children.h Now we call him, “Abba, Father.”i 16For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God’s children. 17And since we are his children, we are his heirs. In fact, together with Christ we are heirs of God’s glory. But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering.

Now we are sons and daughters of the living God! Are we?
However, despite being saved, despite being sons and daughters of the living God, there are situations and things in us that we are not yet able to get free from. This is where deliverance is needed. To set us free from this particular situation or being.
de·liv·er·ance
dəˈliv(ə)rəns/
noun
the action of being rescued or set free.
“prayers for deliverance”
From what situation? From what being?
LUKE 4:18 Berean Study Bible
“The Spirit of the Lord is on Me, because He has anointed Me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim deliverance to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
MATTHEW 11:5 New International Version
The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is proclaimed to the poor.
When the Lord proclaimed the good news and forgive the sins of the people, they also get healed from whatever they need healing from. That must include the inner – our emotions. I believe that we cannot thank or praise God with a heavy heart or even when we are sad. So there must be a deliverance from :
  1. Emotional problems –
  • Irritable to others. An irritable question. Do you know one?
  • Little or No tolerance from expectations or demands
  • When offended, feelings of anger, hate and resentment rise up
  • Overly sensitive – easily angered and lashed-out
  • Hard to forgive
  • Hard to feel loved
  • Easily frustrated
  • Retaliation urges
  • Irresponsible behavior
  • Feelings of hopelessness
  • ..and many more
  1. Unclean Spirits – to name a few…
  • Spirits of bondage – which must be broken
  • Spirits of addiction, lust, perversion
  • Spirits of rebellion
  • Spirits of witchcraft, divination and the occult – which must be renounced

REVELATION 16:13-14 Berean Study Bible
And I saw three unclean spirits that looked like frogs, coming from the mouths of the dragon, the beast, and the false prophet. They are demonic spirits who work miracles and go out to all the rulers of the world to gather them for battle against the Lord on that great judgment day of God the Almighty.

MATTHEW 8:3 Berean Study Bible
Jesus reached out His hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” He said, “be clean.” And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

…and last but not the least – Demons.

1 TIMOTHY 4:1 New Living Translation
Now the Holy Spirit tells us clearly that in the last times some will turn away from the true faith; they will follow deceptive spirits and teachings that come from demons.

2 THESSALONIANS 2:3 Berean Study Bible
Let no one deceive you in any way, for it will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness (the son of destruction) is revealed.

EPHESIANS 5:6 Berean Study Bible
Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on the sons of disobedience.

1 SAMUEL 15:23

New International Version
For rebellion is like the sin of divination, and arrogance like the evil of idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the LORD, he has rejected you as king.”

New Living Translation
Rebellion is as sinful as witchcraft, and stubbornness as bad as worshiping idols. So because you have rejected the command of the LORD, he has rejected you as king.”

DEUTERONOMY 18:10-11 New Living Translation
For example, never sacrifice your son or daughter as a burnt offering. And do not let your people practice fortune-telling, or use sorcery, or interpret omens, or engage in witchcraft, or cast spells, or function as mediums or psychics, or call forth the spirits of the dead.

v.12 …Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD…

7-things-god-hates

Detestable practices…abominations to the Lord.

Such as…but not necessarily it. May or may not be the case for the Christian that you are BUT may or may not be to someone you know who accepted Christ and is still in bondage or torment of the spirits from their ancestors.

I have met Christians who say they are Christians but is the opposite of what I know our Lord Jesus Christ is. 

  • Have you met a Christian who doesn’t know how to pray? The Lord prays a lot.
  • Have you met one who is always frustrated or easily saddened? The Lord is filled with joy. John 15:11
  • Have you met a Christian who is always sick? Or you know someone? The Lord heals.
  • Have you met someone who is tormented by demons? The Lord cast them out. Mark 3:15 even authorized the disciples.

MATTHEW 4:24 New Living Translation
News about him spread as far as Syria, and people soon began bringing to him all who were sick. And whatever their sickness or disease, or if they were demon possessed or epileptic or paralyzed–he healed them all.

MATTHEW 11:5 New International Version
The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is proclaimed to the poor.

As Christians, we ought to be living our life in Christ – a rich and satisfying life in Him, with Him and for Him.

john1010

JOHN 10:10 New Living Translation
The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.

But there’s an unseen battle – a battle with the unseen! Just because you don’t see them doesn’t mean they are not real. Angels and Demons and Spirits are real! As real as the Holy Spirit of the living God, our Sovereign Lord!

EPHESIANS 6:12 Berean Study Bible
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this world’s darkness, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

How can someone see the unseen when he is afraid? The gift of an open spiritual eye is for the fearless and the brave whose trust is in the Lord. Demons are horrific. Unclean Spirits are disgusting. Evil Spirits are in many forms, and can be terrifying. If you would see them, would you run? Remember, an open spiritual eye is not limited to the heavenly beings. There’s Hell too!

So, are you saved and delivered or are you saved and undelivered? Seek the Lord and know for yourself. Only the Holy Spirit can reveal this to you. If you really are a son of the living God, you alone can answer that.

Remember, only the unbelievers can be possessed. Believers, however, can be influenced, or deceived, or both.
