What Law Are You Operating Under?
Today we took a closer look at what law are we operating under? What is the default law of operation for us as believers in Yeshua? That question grew out of Romans 8:1-2: “Therefore there is now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of Life in Jesus Christ has set us free from the law of sin and death.”
What is the law of sin and death? Romans 5:12 tells us, “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for all have sinned.” Verse 14 says: “Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.”
So it is a fact that we were born into the sin nature. Read chapter six of Romans while you are in the neighborhood, to get a better perspective on the operation of the law of sin and death. The ultimate end of sin is death, the ultimate end of the Spirit of Life in Jesus Christ is righteousness, and eternal life. We are made the righteousness of God through Jesus [I Cor. 1:30]. And as we are told in Romans 8:2, “The law of the Spirit of Life in Jesus Christ has made me free from the law of sin and death.”
That law has no legal standing to keep us in bondage except through deception.
When we make the transition from death unto life, we literally change nations.
The laws that govern our neighboring nations don’t apply to us, unless we visit or live there.
Romans six tells us to consider ourselves dead to sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ.
When you listen to the Message, there will be a better understanding of what law is operating in the default position.
Romans 8:1–2 NKJV
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Listen now: The service has been separated into three parts, like a delectable meal prepared specially for you. Be blessed!
Healing and Deliverance
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.”
