Portraits of Redemption – 5
Choose What You Look At
The descendants of Abraham marched through the wilderness. As they marched, they became discouraged, just like we do. As we see the Israelites deliverance into the promised land, we see a type of picture, a portrait of redemption. It is very easy to allow natural circumstances to discourage us if we look at them. We choose what we are going to look at: the circumstances we face or God, our deliverer, and his ability to take us to our promised land. Yes, there is still a promised land. Our promised land is full of abundance and fear free! When we receive Jesus, we are delivered from bondage, and we are translated from the authority of the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of the Son of God, Jesus Christ the Righteous. But on the way, we encounter challenges—all manner of circumstances designed to keep us in bondage. For more insight, listen to this message delivered by Dr. Dowdy on March 17, 2019, and be blessed!
Are we looking at the circumstance or are we looking at Jesus?
Psalm 107:2 NKJV
Let the redeemed of the Lord say so,
Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy.
Numbers 21:4 NKJV
Then they journeyed from Mount Hor by the Way of the Red Sea, to go around the land of Edom; and the soul of the people became very discouraged on the way.

Foundation Scripture for LOJWC Ministry:
“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Mark 11:23
What We Believe:
We believe in God, the Father, Almighty, and in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. On the third day he rose again according to Scripture. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father, from whence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the God-head, who revealed himself on the day of Pentecost. We believe in the gifts of the Spirit and their continuous operation in the body of Christ. And we believe in one holy, universal, and apostolic church. Amen.
We conduct spiritual warfare. It begins with us as we speak God’s word and speak to our bodies, minds, and emotions. Therefore we make a faith confession which says: “Satan, in the name of Jesus, I declare this body a sickness-disease-free zone. Every germ, virus, bacterium, etc., that touches this body dies instantly in the name of Jesus, who bore my sicknesses, carried my diseases, and by whose stripes I have been healed. Therefore I command life into every cell in this body, I receive healing for my emotions from every past embedded hurtful, fearful memory. I speak active deliverance from the law of sin and death, according to the finished works of Jesus the Christ, the anointed and his anointing.”
