The message Jesus gives to the world is one of hope. We can rest assured that we have access to all of God’s help right now.
In my new book there is a chapter entitled The Untouchables. In it I describe a facet of our relationship with our Heavenly Father largely lacking among Christendom. It is the protection God wants to provide to His family. He wants to surround you — encase you — with His own supernatural protection.
Look at this statement from First John 5:18, Message:
The God-begotten are also the God-protected. The Evil One can’t lay a hand on them. We know that we are held firm by God; it’s only the people of the world who continue in the grip of the Evil One.
Satan cannot lay a hand on them, or on you! You are God-begotten and protected. That means that every threat to your health, finances, family or well-being is already defeated.
You are not in the devil’s grip. The Evil One can’t lay a hand on you! You are firmly in your Father’s grip — and He’s not letting you go.
The world is overrun with a lot of dangerous threats. There is always something going on that you could worry about. Right now, the atmosphere around the world is charged with anxiety and fear over the coronavirus, health, the health of family, job security or financial stresses, just to name a few current issues.
The pressure that surrounds us is there to paralyze our faith and derail us from receiving. This is the way the spirit of the world seeks to control us. If Satan can conquer you with fear, he will control your faith.
But the God-begotten are the God-protected. Look at First John 5:4-5, Message:
Every God-begotten person conquers the world's ways. The conquering power that brings the world to its knees is our faith. The person who wins out over the world's ways is simply the one who believes Jesus is the Son of God.
You have infused within your inner man the God-begotten DNA that is energized with world-conquering power — FAITH! This is faith that goes far beyond our initial faith that God exists. This is faith in all Jesus has done to separate every person from the control that has kept them fear filled and failing in life. Jesus came to give His life. Not only on the cross but also to fill us today and every day with the supernatural substance of His Divine life.
Our faith brings the world, its ways, its power, its fears, it’s lack and diseases, to its knees. Bowing before the true conquerors of the day — all who are God-begotten.
This is for everyone. But is it not for just anyone. It is only for someone who believes it!
This is the real message. Everyone CAN believe it. If you have not believed the good news about Jesus — you can right now.
Today, make the decision to give your life to Him. Pray and make Him Lord of your life. When you do you will be ushered into His family — the God-Begotten.
