What do you see when you look up?
“As Pharaoh approached, the Israelites looked up, and there were the Egyptians, marching after them. They were terrified and cried out to the LORD. They said to Moses, “Was it because there were no graves in Egypt that you brought us to the desert to die? What have you done to us by bringing us out of Egypt?” – Exodus 14:10-11
If you see the God of vengeance and judgment when you look up – your Red Sea hasn’t parted!
If you see the God of wrath and some cosmic policeman in the sky then you are Not only looking at the God who sees you as the Holiness of Christ – but you are also creating a world of pain for you that He doesn’t want you in!
“But it says in the Bible that God did this and is that way” – I know this is legalism 101 defense. It’s correct that He did this – But Christ Is the New Covenant!
“All your children will be taught by the LORD, and great will be their peace. In righteousness you will be established: Tyranny will be far from you; you will have nothing to fear. Terror will be far removed; it will not come near you.” Isaiah 54:13-14
How did this happen? What was it that changed Everything?
“But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.” – Isaiah 53:5
Most Christians know these passages and they understand that the Gift of Jesus had value but they limit it by remaining under the law or some form of evaluation that no longer pertains to those who have accepted Jesus!
Herein lies one of the greatest tricks of satan – to get followers of Jesus stuck in the past without the knowledge and full understanding of His Grace-Full Gift in the present!
Terror was removed from you the second you accepted His Gift! You have Nothing to fear the very nanosecond you ask Him to take your sins! You are No longer under the law from the very moment you turn to Him!
Sin has a payment, law is the power of sin and as long as you fail to accept His payment you have fear!
Grace-Full growth once in Him is Growth in the understanding of non-fear! Peace and Love prevail and in that His Light of Love will shine through you with gratitude toward Him!
