[2 Corinthians 5:19]
For the best provision for man’s redemption, He gave of himself to break the power of sin and release us from bondage, alike to if David was not willing to sacrifice his life to get his family back from the Amalekite, the enemy will not return them back to David on his own accord. Satan will not release you except the chord of bondage is broken by the blood of Jesus. Jesus sacrificed his life to redeem us back to God. This is foolishness to the natural mind. Read the account in John 1, where the bible states it in plain language, that The word became flesh.
John 1: v1-4; v14
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
Today God’s promise to everyman is that though you sin be as scalet they can be as white as snow if we confess and forsake them [Isaiah 1: 18]. The word of God reveals to us who Jesus is. That is the authentic source. Do not live by hearsay. Dig into the word of God and find the truth for yourself. If you want salvation, healing, deliverance, promotion, etc you find it in the word. This is the honey dimension of the word.
[Psalm 19: 7-11]
7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
8 The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
Prayer of Faith
1. Let your word bring light and life to my spirit and soul in Jesus Name. Wash me clean, spirit, soul and body by the water of your word in Jesus Name.
2. Lord, give me spiritual appetite for your word. Make your word, dearest to my soul. Let me desire your word than silver or gold and make it sweater to me than honey in the honeycomb in Jesus Name. Amen.
