LIFE APPLICATION: 1:
1. THE MOUNT OF OLIVES:
There are a whole lot of spiritual revelations hidden in this mount of Olives.
The mount of Olives is the place in ancient history where they crushed and bruised the olives to separate the oil.
Jesus went to this mount of Olives that he may be crushed and bruised and the oil of the Holy Spirit of God will be flown out from him.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
Dear Child of God, Today's meditation beautifully portrays that CHRIST was wounded for each of our transgressions and bruised for our inequities.
And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.
It was on this mount Christ won his spiritual battle before he carried the cross, submitting to the will of God.
Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.
His soul was crushed and sorrow of death compassed him as he cried out to the father if this cup can be passed away from him.
And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.
Christ was bruised at this mount of Olives till he sweat blood. The covenant of the new testament that has been shed for the redemption of many.
After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.
By his blood we have forgiveness of sins.
In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
We have redemption through this blood. It is by the death of CHRIST his shed blood, through the sanctification of the Holy Spirit that we have redemption from sin.
Dear Child of God:
Are you still under the influence of sin? The blood of Christ washes us from all sins.
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
Does your past shed a dark shadow at your present and future?
The blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth can sanctify you from every dead works of your past.
How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
Yes, God will purge your conscience by his blood that your past has no influence on you anymore.
Are you in deep ADDICTIONS? Are in the hard grip of the enemy.. The blood of Christ is the medicine to set you free. Speak the blood and apply on every areas of life. You will be set free.
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
LIFE APPLICATION 2
YOU ARE NOT CONDEMNED:
Dear Child of the most high God.
There is no condemnation once you are made righteous by the blood of CHRIST and walking not by the flesh but by the spirit.
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Even the law of Moses cannot condemn us and we are free.
And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification.
We are free from every judgement and accusations that the enemy can throw at us.
And one more truth, I would like your eyes to be opened to.
Satan was standing at the right hand accusing Joshua the priest, who was clothed in filthy clothes. But God saw no iniquity in him.
And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him.
And the LORD said unto Satan, The LORD rebuke thee, O Satan; even the LORD that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?
Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and stood before the angel.
And he answered and spake unto those that stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And unto him he said, Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment.
God never condemns.... God never accuses.... neither he lifts up to pass judgement on his beloved bought by the blood of Christ.... so find rest in him beloved.... you are bought with a price.
LIFE APPLICATION 3:
One more deeper REVEALATION in this meditation...
1. What was Christ writing on the ground?
2. Why did everyone who came to stone the woman left from the eldest to the last?
It is CHRIST who sits on the judgement seat and has the authority to pass judgement.
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
The WORD of GOD says,
Those that forsake the living waters of CHRIST their names will be written on the earth and they shall be ashamed.
O LORD, the hope of Israel, all that forsake thee shall be ashamed, and they that depart from me shall be written in the earth, because they have forsaken the LORD, the fountain of living waters.
Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house.
The judgement of God begins in his sanctuary and begins with The eldest.
Jesus passed on the judgement at the men who came to stone the woman. He wrote their names from eldest to the last on the earth as per the scripture above. That is why their conscience judged them wrong and they all left.
Dearly beloved, Christ is light. So if we are still In the dark, Let us come to the light of Christ and live. Amen..
