Many think that Jesus came to the world to save us – and he did, but few understand that He wasn’t just saving us from hell after we die. His primary mission was to rescue us now from the evil on earth. In Galatians, Paul starts with the first of his many points of correction for the church:
Gal 1:3-4 Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, 4 Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:
Yes, Jesus dealt with our sins, and yes, we are assured of our life in Heaven (thank you Jesus!), but those were the prerequisites that he had to address in order “that he might deliver us from this present evil world”. The disease, sickness, poverty, depression, injustice, loneliness, divorce, lack, pain and death are all the result of sin. Since none of these were the Father’s will for our lives, Jesus delivered us from them and has graciously given us health, healing, abundance, prosperity, joy, peace, love and every good and perfect gift!!! If our knowledge of salvation is limited to forgiveness of sins and blessings in Heaven after we die, then our expectation and hope for salvation today will be nonexistent and victory will never be our reality.
If you have a desire for more, for a life filled with amazing miracles dripping with the supernatural power of God, and the manifold blessings of favor and victory, hear the Word of God: “… Jesus … gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world…”
Start today. Believe the word, embrace the true gospel of grace. Against hope, believe in hope, that you might become all that the Father has spoken (Rom 4:18). Your expectation and hope will align with that gospel and you can receive (take) all the blessings Jesus died to secure for us. Join the conference call as we study the book of Galatians together. We will tune-up our spiritual engines with the correct doctrine and be on our way to a glorious life in Christ. Call (218.486.3691 access code: 570919#) on Wednesday at 7pm. Let’s get delivered!
