HEALING – ABUNDANT LIFE

Pray:  WE come to You, Our Father, and willingly submit to your provision and ways. 

Jesus said in John 10:9-10, I am the Door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved and will go in and find pasture. The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I HAVE COME THAT THEY [THE SHEEP] MAY HAVE LIFE AND THAT THEY MAY HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY                        

STAND IN SOZO- to save, deliver, protect, keep safe and sound, heal, preserve, do well, be made whole.

“Whom the Son sets free is free indeed.” John 8:36

When Jesus went into the temples, starting in Galilee, just fresh from the wilderness, empowered by the Holy Spirit, He approached the podium to read the Scriptures. He knew that He had come to bring a new kingdom with new rules: a NEW COVENANT and fulfill the prophetic words about Messiah. He turned the world upside down. Many marveled and believed.

He came to Nazareth, his hometown, to the synagogue and opened to Isaiah 61. It’s recorded in Luke 4:18,21.

Luke 4:18,21 Jesus said: 

I came to set the captives free

Preach the gospel to the poor

Heal the brokenhearted 

Recover sight to the blind 

Set at liberty those who are oppressed

To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.

Luke 4:21, and he began to say to them, “Today, this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” 

:28 – so all those in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath. They thrust him out of the city and tried to toss Him off a cliff. [those from his hometown]

:30 – then passing through the midst of them, He went His way.

He continued to preach in the synagogues and demonstrate the power of God there and in the street.

Not everyone is going to want to hear about Jesus.

God desires for each of us to BE 100% WHOLE. Jesus paid the price.

Let’s do something we can all relate to and apply these truths to our lives now. Let’s use His Word to continue to set our lives on His course, His journey.

Consider that you are a multicolored air balloon created to SOAR…but you are tethered to the ground by four ropes, tied to the ground.  The goal is to become untethered, so let’s cut the ties and SOAR IN THE SPIRIT.

In Luke 4, there are four areas of our lives that Jesus paid the ransom for. 

CONSIDER THEM TO BE 4 ROPES TETHERING US TO THE GROUND.

  1. Generational sins-released
  2. Ungodly belief-delivered
  3. Woundings -spirit, soul, body- healed
  4. Demonic oppression-freedom

1. Rope – generational curses- sins and family baggage

Ex 34:7 “I lavish unfailing love to a thousand generations. I forgive iniquity, rebellion, and sin. But I do not excuse the guilty….” 

JESUS’ FORGIVENESS COVERS IT ALL.

Iniquity – a propensity to sin, Family lines propelled in a specific direction. Repentance is required—Recognition and acknowledgment, then repentance.

God wants to cut off these iniquities.

Iniquity pressure is real- there are triggers. Recognize them and deal with them. We need to close doors. Apply His Blood

Sins from ancestors, addictions, heart tendencies.

AGAIN…Close all the doors

GOD WANTS TO BREAK IT OFF

Consider: we’re Boxing – we get knocked down several times – Getting hit over and again.  Why? There is something there.

Exodus 20:5-6

: You shall not bow yourself down to them nor serve them. For I the LORD your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the sons to the third and fourth generation of those that HATE ME, and showing mercy to thousands, to those that love Me and keep My commandments.

God wants to break off all generational sins from our lives.

2. Rope – Ungodly Belief. Narrative negative chatter or toxic self-thinking.  

I call them the ‘twirly whirls.’  lies that we believe. Neural pathways that are unhealthy. They tether us to the earth. Ask God what the issue is. He can release you from the lie and tell you the Truth.

Ephesians 5:26 – washing of the water of the Word- Why?

 The death, burial, and resurrection of Christ washed away all our sins. Yet as a believer, we still sin every day. The verse referenced speaks of a necessary CONSTANT RENEWAL, a refreshing of the Word in our hearts that cleanses and keeps us clean. A CONTINUOUS REVIVAL.

Col 3:21 Christ enthroned – fill your mind with heavenly thoughts

Romans 12:2 be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

Agree with God for your life.

It’s important that we break any contracts we have made with sin, sickness, or death. [vows]

WE receive His truth in godly living- 

1 Peter 1:3 – “His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through the knowledge of Him who called us by His glory and excellence.”

3. Rope – Woundings – hurts of the spirit, soul, and body.

 The wounds of life happen, but God has a big Eraser and Healing Balm.

Isaiah 53-He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds

Meet Jesus where you are – Receive His healing

-GOD KNOWS HOW TO HEAL YOU-

He knows how to heal- He knows what happened to you- Listen – find Him – Forgive

He has set the table before you- Dine with Him- Receive His love- His healing intimacy.

4. Rope – Demonic Oppression

This can be a result of the other three areas. 

If you leave demons alone, they will leave you alone? No

We have to Battle with demons – yes – but a situation may not always be demonic. we Can defeat them – we need Discernment I John 4

Can a Christian be possessed by a demon? No-we are redeemed

We can be oppressed. We have to identify them and deal with them.

NO LANDING STRIPS FOR DEMONIC THOUGHTS.

DO NOT GIVE THE ENEMY A SEAT AT THE TABLE.

Confess sins and actions that do not agree with the Lord

Cast down and remove from your mind any thoughts in disagreement with His Words 

Submit to God, Resist the devil

Do not give place to the devil – 11 Tim 2:26

Stand Stand Stand- Apply the blood of Jesus

 I John 3:8-9 “… For this purpose, the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His Seed remains in him, and he cannot sin because he has been born of God.”

Rechem- womb- We enter the womb of mercy- being born again… and access His Life for ourselves. 

THE CURTAIN, THE VEIL, WAS RENT WHEN JESUS DIED, GIVING US OPEN ACCESS TO THE THRONE ROOM AND THE HOLY OF HOLIES.

“There is a way through the veil…love never fails.” Don Potter

How do we access these truths in God? PRAYER.

Heb 4:16 “Therefore let us [with privilege], [approach boldly, draw near] the throne of grace [that is, the throne of God’s gracious, unmerited favor to us sinners] with confidence and without fear, so that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find [His amazing] grace to help in time of need [an appropriate blessing, coming just at the right moment].”

STAND IN SOZO– to save, deliver, protect, keep safe and sound, heal, preserve, do well, be made whole.

“Whom the Son sets free is free indeed.” John 8:36

[PM- Bind hopelessness] GOD BRINGS HOPE.

“Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when the desire comes, it’s a TREE OF LIFE.” the minute you pray, God begins to move. He wants you transformed.

Biblical hope is an expectation of something good that is coming from God.

We are GOD’S sons and daughters-

LIVING OUR LIVES WITH DETERMINED PERSEVERANCE.

WE possess unrelenting boldness because of Him.

 IT IS FINISHED.

“He Who began a good work in you is able to complete it” Ps138:8

“You keep every promise you’ve ever made to me! Since YOUR LOVE FOR ME IS CONSTANT AND ENDLESS, I ask you, Lord, to finish every good thing that you’ve begun in me!” TPT

We become an untethered balloon FREE FROM ENTANGLEMENTS, soaring on the wind of the Spirit. We need to Surrender to God as each rope is cut and we rise.

OUR balloon is blue, red, and purple, and soaring…

The curtain on the temple was blue and red, and purple.

         “WHOM THE SON SETS FREE IS FREE INDEED.  John 8:36

                         UNQUESTIONINGLY FREE.
