My Inspirational Healing Story and commentary on Christian Philosphy and Abortion with Andrew Wommack’s Ministry were televised on Christian TV across the globe. As I continue to speak and share the Gospel with others and share the truth through my healing journey, I have wonderful people who surround me with encouragement and love.
I pray that all who watch the stories see the incredible grace and love of the Jesus I fell in love with, and who I am wanting to introduce to a world filled with unbelief. He sent His Son to save the world. (Save = sozo = healed, prosperous, forgiven and set free). My book ‘Forever Changed’ is about this incredible journey that’s available to us all, and walks you through some key things God shows us in His Word of how you can begin your journey and appropriate what God has provided. The book can be purchased on www.amazon.com I hope it brings Truth to those who long to see the MORE, the GREATER manifest in their lives and in those around them.
I am working on two more books after teaching now on the Tools One Needs to Live the exceedingly abundant life in Christ. It takes you into the Word, sharing the tools more in-depth that He has already provided for us and tells how to use those tools. It’s kind of a follow-up and continuation of ‘Forever Changed“. Also a Healing Devotional filled with scripture, photography and a few of my paintings.
I love our Abba Father, Daddy, as He continues to lead me in HIS Truth and I ‘get’ to share HIM with others.”
Also my Original Watercolors, Limited Edition Signed and Numbered Prints can be found on my website for purchase
As a former educator and ministry leader that works with many youth, I am not surprised that this generation is ‘confused and questions their identity. Whether they are Christians or have never heard about Christ, they have been groomed and taught to question their identity and sexuality by their schools, educators, media, music, and sometimes the parents and family. They are encouraged to distrust and devalue their parents knowledge and wisdom.
As an educator I taught in the Elementary school classrooms over 25 years ago. The classroom text books were ‘grooming’ your children back then. The math books read…. “Daddy and Daddy” the curriculum included Planned Parenthood coming into your child’s classroom teaching your Kindergarten and First Graders on up to not trust you mom and dad. But the persons they were taught they could trust were the ones who were encouraging them to begin experimenting with their ‘sexuality.’ Seriously what Kindergarten child does not trust their teachers and educators when they are this age, even when they are telling them something against what their parents have taught them? They are taught that mom and dad may not understand that it is “normal” for them to be experimenting and learning about anal sex and masturbation and being attracted to many different people and things. Yes, things. They were grooming your child and most parents never suspected!
It infuriated me back then and as a new Christian, I quit my job as an educator because I was instructed to never mention Jesus, and had some health issues, but the curriculum I was told to share included satanism, and oral sex. ARGHHHHH. I could not do it! I know not every school curriculum included such immorality back then, but now it is the norm and parents have no knowledge of it happening.
I have fought many battles and knew that this was one I was not prepared to take on at that time in my life. I instead have chosen to share and encourage others to KNOW the TRUTH, GOD”S TRUTH about who and whose they are. There is NO CONFUSION about body & self imaging, sexuality, and FEELINGS when you truly grasp who you are in Christ and whose you are.
If you are one of those who are still struggling with any of these thoughts, the truth can really only be found in one place and there is ONLY one truth.
His Name Is Jesus Christ.
We do have an enemy who is the father of confusion. What a wonderful tool to get us to question our identity. These thoughts open you up to receive his lies and the lies of the world.
They make money off of you and your children being promiscuous and questioning! Billions of dollars pad the pockets of planned parenthood, pharmaceutical companies and others who make billions on birth control, abortions, STD’s ($76 Billion every year on STDs alone) Hormone replacements and the lifestyles they push on children. It is EVIL.
By the way…. birth control and the hormones given your teens are classified as a class one carcinogen. The same classification as asbestos. But many parents put their teens on birth control without ever talking to them about how VALUABLE they are. They are taught to experiment and be used by another person, trying them out!!!! Every year in the U.S. 24,000 girls become infertile because of an untreated STI/STD. Then there is the Gardasil that they push on your child that they say guards them against cervical or testicular cancer caused by HPV. They make it sound that if you are not giving your child this injection you are a bad parent.
*Do you know….. that HPV has over 100 stains?
*Do you know that HPV is contracted by having multiple sexual partners?
*Do you know that the Gardasil only slightly protects against only 4 of those 100 HPV strains?
*Do you know that children die every year and become paralyzed from the Gardasil injections?
*Do you know that over 51% of your children’s classmates are finally deciding to wait and postpone having sexual partners? YES, it is possible!
*Do you know that they are not animals and can even wait till marriage to have sex and many do wait?
Did you know that there are 21 million NEW cases of STI/STD’s every year?
This is only a piece of the bad news about what your children and you are being taught.
NOW ~ THE GOOD NEWS
There is good news, even GREAT NEWS for you and your children and HIS Name is JESUS CHRIST. If you are a Christian, a believer in JESUS CHRIST you have HIS IDENTITY LIVING IN YOU. No need to question one more second when you know the truth. You are a child of God and you do not have to strive to know what sex, how beautiful, how special you are. You do however need to KNOW HIS TRUTH. HIS truth is found in HIS Word, but if all you listen to are the voices of the world, you will question?
BE STILL, and listen to HIS voice that tells you, “you are filled with joy, peace, love, grace, sound mind, power and authority to move mountains” and so much more.
Your TRUE IDENTITY is a beautiful reflection of who God created you to be. He only made two sexes (male and female) and does not make mistakes. You are not a mistake. Your sexuality and sexual orientation were created before you were born. The moment of conception. There are only 2. not 277 different sexual identities. How confusing it is to teach children this garbage?
You can ‘Choose’ to identify as anything, it does not make it so. If you identify as a purple cow, it does not make it so no matter how much you think you believe it, or tell others and act like or feel!
It is only the truth that you KNOW that sets you free from the lies. To KNOW Gods truth you will need to study and read His Word, and get a revelation from the Holy Spirit. You are more than what you can see, hear, taste, smell and feel. You have the Holy Spirit living in you as a believer in Jesus Christ.
You are 100% healed, prospered, forgiven, set free. Filled with God’s Love, joy, peace, patience, sound mind, power, & authority. You can heal the sick, raise the dead & open blind eyes. But if you don’t know what you have (sitting in the bank as an inheritance) you will live like the rest of the world.
It is time to start living life in the freedoms of God’s amazing love and grace and be filled with the Holy Spirit to live the exceedingly abundant life as God created you to be. Woman or man, there are only two sexes, one way to heaven and to live this amazing life now.
CHOOSE LIFE, CHOOSE CHRIST. You will never regret this choice. You will however regret, multiple sexual partners & identifying as something you are not.
THE GREATEST NEWS EVER.
Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. Proverbs 16:18
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless, I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20
I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.John 15:15
But as many as received him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: John 1:12
For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin.
When we know who and whose we are we can begin to build a foundation based on truth. The TRUTH of who GOD says we are and not who we think we are or who the world might tell us we are or even a church that may or may not be sharing truth.
It’s the truth we know that sets us free and a foundation we can ‘stand’ on.
His Name is Jesus Christ.
Our FOCUS has many things vying for our time. The world, work and family and all the things going on today can get our focus off of God’s truth. Our focus needs to continually be on the Father. I have had people tell me I am a Jesus freak, or I am so heavenly minded, that I am no earthly good. That I spend way too much time in the Word, talking about my daddy or you name it. The world and even Christians often want you to look like them. It makes them uncomfortable to hear me check in with my Jesus or look to HIM for all the answers. Yes of course there are things I must do to complete my day of work and ministry. But without HIM, I can do nothing. But gratefully I am never without HIM. I can do my work and ministry because of Him and His guidance in my every moment in every day. It is as simple as having my best friend whispering into every part of my day & life.
Having an intimate relationship with the LORD has taken time for me to have. I spent time in His Word getting to KNOW Him. When you get to know the LORD in this way, fear leaves, faith grows, grace and love and joy and all the benefits of His Life live in you. You can be confident in knowing that we can be doing the GREATER things He has called us all as believers to operate in. He has called us to heal the sick, raise the dead and open blind eyes. He has called us to do even greater things than He did while He was here ministering.
“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.John 14:12
What a wonderful life we have here because of our relationship with Him.

Being a new creation means desiring a relationship with God rather than gratifying selfish desires (Ephesians 4:22-24). New creations fight against sin rather than giving in to it (1 John 3:3-4). Yes, you will still sin, but the goal is to resist willful sin (Romans 6:1-7, 11-12).
To be sanctified means that you will hate your sin more and more and, as we mature in our faith, resisting sin will get easier (2 Corinthians 7:1; 1 John 1:6) Another part of us being a new creation is realizing that we have a new identity in Christ. we have power in Christ and can overcome anything—as long as you CHOOSE to fight it and BELIEVE. (Philippians 4:13).
As a new creation in Christ, we are empowered by and for righteousness. We are wonderful, beautiful children of God, whom He has created with great care, love, and thoughtfulness for Him and for His glory.
“…to all who did receive [Jesus], who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.” (John 1:12-13)
We are a new creation, when we BELIEVE.
We need to believe in what GOD says we have and not in what our eyes see or ears hear. If we focus on the flesh and how we FEEL, it is harder to believe. God tells us to think on these things, whatever is lovely and of good report. God’s truths and Word are of good report and are the loveliest words.
Many people have heard that God is the one who is causing or allowing the bad things in the world and in your life. It makes it hard to believe HE has all the good things for us as our inheritance when we believe wrong. And that is wrong belief!
God has provided an amazing, powerful inheritance for us, filled with the same authority He had that was given by His Father. We don’t often see God’s people walking in this inheritance so it is hard for us, even in the church to believe it really is ours and we can have it all now.
God never intended us to wait till we die to inherit His power and authority, we really don’t need it in heaven. We need to take that here on earth so we can live that exceedingly abundant life, filled with power, authority, joy unspeakable, love, joy peace, soundness of mind, power to raise the dead and heal the sick, to open blind eyes and see the lost saved.
BELIEVE in the finished work of Jesus Christ & take your inheritance.
Ephesians 4:22-24 You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; 23to be made new in the attitude of your minds; 24and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
John 3:3-4 All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure. 4Everyone who sins breaks the law; in fact, sin is lawlessness.
Romans 6:11-12 In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. 12Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires.
Romans 6:1-7 What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? 2By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? 3Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. 5For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his. 6For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin- 7because anyone who has died has been set free from sin.
2 Corinthians 7:1 Therefore, since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.
Philippians 4:13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
John 1:12-13 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God- 13children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.
Forgiveness means letting go of your right to punish another and choosing through the power of God’s loveto hold onto people rather than their offenses. In the process of forgiving, the first barrier you have to remove is within yourself. You have to decide to let go of the offense along with your desire to punish the offender. When you hold onto unforgiveness it hurts you and not those you hold anger and unforgiveness against. Some people are so toxic that they do not need to be in our lives, and we can let them go and not hold onto their junk.
It is through God’s Love and power that we have the ability as believers to forgive some of the offenses and evil that may have come against us and the people who perpetrated them. It is God who heals our wounds.
Unforgiveness turns into anger and bitterness.
There have been offenses and evil against me worthy of anger. But only God’s righteous anger and it was never my ‘right’ to hold unforgiveness in my heart. It didn’t take much time before my unforgiveness turned into anger and bitterness. Bitterness is a dangerous thing to hold in our hearts. Bitterness begins to burn into every aspect of our lives, effecting all the beauty that God has for us in this world. The world became ugly to me when the bitterness seeped in. It happens very slowly and then consumes your every moment. IT IS UGLY. I had great loving friends around me who pointed it out. Though God had already pointed it out to me.
I didn’t know how to let go of my unforgiveness and bitterness any more. I remember sitting in my car one day and telling the Lord, “God I do not KNOW how to let this go, please help me to let the bitterness go.”
It did not happen that moment, but because I sought God and HIS truths, He was doing a work in my heart. CHOOSING to look to HIM and not our own revenge is a choice. It was only about two weeks after asking God for His help that I woke up feeling healed. The bitterness and anger were gone. ~Thank You LORD for your faithfulness.
“For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.”. Matthew 6:14-15
Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.Ephesians 4:31-32
So watch yourselves. “If your brother or sister sins against you, rebuke them; and if they repent, forgive them. 4Even if they sin against you seven times in a day and seven times come back to you saying ‘I repent,’ you must forgive them.” 5The apostles said to the LORD, “Increase our faith!” 6He replied, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you. 7″Suppose one of you has a servant plowing or looking after the sheep. Will he say to the servant when he comes in from the field, ‘Come along now and sit down to eat’? Luke 17:3-7
Colossians 3:13. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any…
Matthew 6:14-15. 14 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you,…
God loves you so much, He is not willing that you should walk in unforgiveness.
SCRIPTURES ON FORGIVENESS
We have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.
Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven.
Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered .
And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross.
Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
1 JOHN 2:12
I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake.
For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.
Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.
And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.
Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him. And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.
1 JOHN 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
The Christian holy day of Pentecost, which is celebrated fifty days after Easter Sunday, commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and other followers of Jesus Christ while they were in Jerusalem celebrating the Spring Festival, Feast of Weeks, Shavout as described in the Acts of the Apostles (Acts 2:1–31).
Today as Believers in Yahweh we celebrate Pentecost.
The apostles were celebrating Shavout when the Holy Spirit descended on them. People passing by at first thought that they must be drunk, but the apostle Peter told the crowd that the apostles were full of the Holy Spirit.
This fullness was evidenced and still today by the speaking in tongues.
God’s power is in us when we are filled with The Holy Spirit & speak in tongues.
What does that mean to you? Living in the Power of the Holy Spirit means freedom, exhilaration, fulfillment. Often we don’t immerse ourselves into the great possibilities available by living in the POWER of the Holy Spirit.
Do you seem powerless when you pray, when you are ‘trying’ to believe for something? Know that it is The Holy Spirit in you that gives you power to change your life. It is the Holy Spirit’s job to produce Christ-like character in you. Only the Holy Spirit has the power to make the changes God wants to make in our lives. Philippians 2:13 says, God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases Him.
It pleases Him for us to take our God given inheritance.
When I was believing for healing, it was the Power of The Holy Spirit living in me, the speaking in tongues, that produced the power to believe and receive healing.
But, first we must be Born again, by receiving Jesus Christ as Our Lord & Savior.
When we have this power, we can move every mountain in our lives. Sickness, disease, depression, etc. We can heal the sick, raise the dead and open blind eyes.
Christians believe that baptism in the Holy Spirit is a second step after the Holy Baptism with Water, through which the believer, through the laying on of hands and the prayer receives the gift of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues.
What a beautiful wonderful, gift from Our Lord.
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be My witnesses, telling people about Me everywhere – in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. – Acts 1:8
Connie’s book, Forever Changed is available on amazon.
Our LORD is always with us. Leading, guiding, directing us. He has given us an inheritance of salvation, healing, forgiveness, love, joy, peace, soundness of mind. A Godly confidence and grace that only comes from ‘KNOWING HIM.’ You do not need to plead to Him everyday to be with you. He said He will never leave us.
“Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he willnever leave you or forsake you” (Deuteronomy 31:6).
God desires our confident trust in Him. In a world that encourages us to believe in ourselves and to achieve all we ‘deserve,’ it’s important to understand who and Whose we are. Society sets a bar to earn and accumulate. Accomplishments and possessions are praised above humility and our God-ordained purpose. Not that we should not have things, we just need to have our priorities in the right place.
“Very often people have a hard time taking God at His word,” wrote Jack Graham. “If God says it, that settles it, and there’s absolutely no reason to doubt it.” So, in place of worldly standards, let’s look to God and His promises.
You do not need to plead with Him to heal you and provide for you. He has already paid the price for you and tells us that we now have power and authority to move the mountains, to heal the sick, because we have Him, His power living inside of us.
“Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, ‘Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5
Gods Word is true, believe it and receive His promises.
He has provided for us healing, health, prosperity, love and so much more. He paid for it all in full when He gave His life for us at the cross.
He either did it ALL or He did nothing at all. God did not send His Son for nothing.
All his promises are Yes and Amen to those who believe. (James 1:8)

Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember? Mark 8:18
Most of us have ears and most of us have eyes, yet God, when talking to this group asks them these questions. HE was not talking to the physically deaf and blind here.
It takes discipline on my part to hear, see and remember what God has done and what HE has given us. The exceedingly abundant life HE has for us here. It takes KNOWING that He has provided all these things for me!
The discipline is in learning and growing in my knowledge, understanding and wisdom of who God says I am and what HE has already provided for us through HIS SON Jesus Christ. It comes through reading and studying His Word. I can also gain some of this by listening to and reading knowledgeable scholars of the Word of God. But as I tell others, test and make sure they are sharing truth. I have visited many churches that are not teaching the true Word of God. The only way I have known that is by studying the Word in-depth myself. When I hear false teaching, my spirit is checked and then I double-check it with The Word.
It is an amazing life to have an inheritance that was paid in full by a loving, gracious God.
Jesus said “It is finished” He didn’t add a “but” any where in this statement.
He wanted us to know that He didn’t do a partial work when He paid the price for all our sins. He didn’t say I came and did some of the work and now you need to do some more work.
Did HE leave us with things to do? Yes. But not works for our salvation. Not works for our healing, health, prosperity, forgiveness and freedom. The works HE left for us were for others. To heal the sick, preach the Gospel, raise the dead, open blind eyes.
Healing is for us to do. Health is for us to have as our inheritance.
I love that 2020 is also how we express perfect vision. I find that as my vision has increased about who Christ is and what we have because of HIS amazing gift of life to us who believe, my understanding of what I have and can do because of HIM has increased. Not only did He call us to do what He did while He walked this earth, He tells us that we will be doing even GREATER things than He did. Start practicing what He did and the even more.
I find that as an artist it is important for me to visualize the greater, the signs, wonders and miracles and then it is easier for me to see them manifest in my life and for those I pray for.
Envision your healing, envision healing others and raising the dead in this New Year.
I recently watched the movie “Amazing Grace” again, the true story about William Wilberforce and his fight to abolish slavery in the late 1700’s and into the mid 1800’s. His fight lasted for years with many people coming against him at every turn. There were evil people who wanted to continue the slave trade because of selfish and financial gain, fear, laziness and indiscretions.
If the truth about the treatment of slaves took years to battle and overcome and certain people leaving office for the TRUTH to be finally revealed and changes to be made, (the lies still continue today) how much more now will it take for the TRUTH of abortion to be revealed? I am sure when you read my heading ‘Amazing Grace” you were not expecting a message on Sexual health and abortion.
Never give up sharing the truth, that abortion kills more women now, and that over 60 million babies lives were stolen just in the U.S. for the right for a mom to “choose” to be free of the so called burden she has been told will be her future! Did you know it is legal to terminate a child up to 9 months, it isn’t rare and happens 100’s of times a week. One of the late term abortionists lives in my state (Boulder, CO) and has been performing abortions up to 9 months for over 40 years. Colorado was the first state to legalize abortion along with New York. Six years before Roe vs Wade and there are no limitations.
Seldom if never do I hear pro abortionists tell the truth about the risks of abortion, which include:
Women who have abortions have a 50% + increased risk of Breast Cancer.
Risk of Ectopic Pregnancies increases
Infertility Risks increase
You will be told those statistics are lies. You will be told that because I truly care about women and want the VERY BEST for them, that I am the one who is misogynistic, hateful and a nazi!!! I have been called these and more!
And never do you hear the Risks of Sexual exposure:
20 million new cases of STD’s (Sexually Transmitted Diseases) every year.
1 in 2 who are sexually active will contract an STD.
50% of the new cases of STD’s every year occur in youth between the ages of 14 and 24
There are over 27 various STD’s many of which are now morphing and not responding to treatment.
24,000 women become infertile every year in the U.S. because of an untreated STD
You will be told that everyone is having sex and there are no risks to multiple sexual partners and it’s “No big deal”.
Please tell the young man or women facing a life of dealing with Herpes, it is no big deal! They will profess otherwise. They will tell you that it is not worth it.
Sex was created to be a beautiful, intimate, relationship building pleasure, to procreate and show the person you love how much your love means. It has been turned into Simply satifying ones own pleasures and into a perversion that goes beyond what I ever imagined would happen in the US!
No one is talking about the heart attachment when one is intimate with their partner. which is now proven through science. Burt many do not care about “Facts’ or “Scientific Facts” but go by their emotions, which change daily. No one talks about the depression and increase of suicides because of a broken heart.
But I will talk about these things often and as often as allowed. I see the shocked look on a students face when I share some of these things. I ask the students who are “transitioning” if they are aware of the side effects of the chemicals and hormones they are putting in their bodies? I am only told. “I am under a physicians care.” Again… Do you know? We are not animals, we are not rabbits. We are able to practice self control and wait for a special person in our lives who truly cares about and honors us, as a person and partner and not just for sex.
‘YOU ARE VALUABLE’
Our society is selling our children a pack of lies, destroying their lives for lack of understanding and knowledge. (Hosea 4:6). We have allowed the sewage of the enemy to destroy morality, values and have limited our youths freedoms.
We have an amazing God that is our redeemer, forgiver, lover of my soul and brings life in abundance. This is the message we need to be sharing with our youth and all who have no real understanding of the amazing life we have and can have because of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. We have this abundant, beautiful inheritance.
We can live a life of signs, wonders and miracles.
When Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished” and He bowed His head. He grave up His Spirit. John 19:30
Imagine looking at Leonardo da Vinci’s famous Mona Lisa painting in the Louvre museum. Would you think of adding more brush strokes to it? Of course not! It was done by a master, so what could you possibly add to the painting to improve it?
In the same way, that is how we are to look at Jesus’ work on the cross. He cried out, “It is finished!” You cannot add to a completed work. You cannot add to a finished work. Our salvation is won. Our sins are all forgiven. We are made forever righteous by the blood. Christ paid completely and perfectly for our total forgiveness, righteousness and every blessing. EVERY BLESSING!
These three words, “It is finished,” come from one Greek word teleo. In Jesus day, a servant would use it when reporting to his master: “I have completed the work assigned to me.” (John 17:4) The word means, “It is finished, it stands finished, and it will always be finished!” The most significant meaning of teleo is how it is used by merchants: The debt is paid in full!” When Jesus gave Himself on the cross, He completely met the righteous demands of the law. He paid our debts in full!
Today, it is NOT our works that will bring us the blessings. It is Christ’s finished works. Christian living is not about doing, but BELIEVING in His finished work. Under the law, we must do. Under grace, it is finished. We are now living in HIS grace.
Maybe you are faced with a sickness or something else today. Jesus promises, “It is finished!” You are not ‘GOING’ to be delivered because you have ALREADY been healed and delivered. God healed you 2,000 years ago! Isaiah 53:5 says, “By HIS stripes you are healed!” You already have it all. Rest in His finished work, believe, and it will manifest.
The work is finished, the victory is won. Our enemies have been defeated. Our blessings have been bought by His blood! Live life KNOWING there is nothing for you to do.
