What an amazing word, and revelation of a scripture I received today. A scripture about Joy.
IS 61 v 1-3....The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, because the LORD has annointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn, to console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes,, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.....
How many of you believe that the Me in this scripture is Jesus? God sent Him to give us joy in place of mourning, to give us beauty in place of ashes, to give us praise in place of heaviness, and He called us righteous, when we plant ourselves in Him and His Word and glorify God. AMEN!
Jesus did not die on the cross, so that He could look at us walking around with frowns on our faces, depressed and full of anxiety, or ashes on our heads in mourning. He died so that we could know the JOY OF THE FATHER. He died on the cross for ALL iniquities. And then most importantly, HE ROSE AGAIN AND IS ALIVE TODAY. We do not need to walk around with ashes mourning and remembering the cross, we need to be REJOICING remembering the RESURRECTION. AMEN, HALLELLUJAH!!! Remember if it is not good, it is not of GOD. AMEN!
John 16 v 22....Therefore you now have sorrow; but I will see you again and your heart will rejoice, and your joy no one will take from you.
When Jesus rose again, our mourning ended. When you made Him the LORD of your life, your darkness was taken away, you will always have the light and His joy, and no one can take that from you. AMEN!
IS 60 v 20....Your sun shall no longer go down, nor shall your moon withdraw itself; for the LORD will be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning shall be ended.....
John 16 v 33....These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.....
HALLELUJAH! You see evil is not of God, evil comes from the enemy who has freedom in this world, but GLORY BE TO GOD, Jesus has overcome this world, and we do not have to be under the enemy's thumb. In fact the word tells us in Deuteronomy 28 v 13, we are the head not the tail, the enemy is under our foot, not the other way around. As children of GOD, take your authority and put the enemy back under your feet where he belongs. AMEN!
Don't let the devil, the enemy steal your light, don't fall into his trap of darkness by listening to him. Stay focused on the LORD, and His light, Stay in His Truth and receive the Joy He has for you. His JOY. AMEN!
STAY IN THE WORD!
