It’s Pentecost Sunday!
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. Genesis 1.
The Holy Spirit is still hovering over us, bringing order to our troubled lives. Jesus said Let not your heart be troubled. In this world you will have trouble but be of good cheer because I have overcome the world.
There is plenty of things going on in the world to make us despair. War in Israel, babies being destroyed, youth descending into drugs, family life eroded, creation groaning, climate change, corona virus and more.
I need to take my mind off all that is going on that I can’t do much about. I take hope in Jesus who came as a baby on earth and lived like us. He came to destroy the works of the devil. All the destruction, disease and death is caused by the devil.
Jesus overcame the devil by His death on the cross. He shed His Blood to take the keys of death and hell from Satan. The war between God and Satan is finished. Jesus won the war. As we join Jesus on the winning side we can be sure of forgiveness, deliverance, healing and restoration of ALL THE DEVIL HAS STOLEN. In the name of Jesus we have the victory. We can claim back what has been stolen.
Jesus disciples were in the Upper room hiding from the Religious leaders who had killed Jesus. God sent the Holy Spirit that first Pentecost. The people were transformed from being fearful to bring full of faith. They went out and boldly declared the good news about Jesus. No more fear.
Many of us are full of fear today. Don’t look at the troubles around you. Look up to heaven and ask God to send the Holy Spirit to fill you . The Holy Spirit is not a spirit of fear but of power, love and a sound mind. God will give you peace and change your chaos to faith, order and protection.
It is finished. The war is over. Celebrate with the winning team. You are part of the Church, the body of Christ. The gates of hell will not prevail against it. God will build us up. We are not defeated. Enjoy that victory today. Join the winning team. Don’t look on from the sideline.
We think Jesus death is history, something that happened long ago that has no relevance today. No no. The Blood and the name of Jesus are powerful today. Just say the name of Jesus. The demons will flee. In the name of Jesus I am healed from fourth stage cancer. I am not dead. My eyes are fixed on Jesus and I am dead to this world.
Speak the name of Jesus boldly over and over. Keep using His name. What a powerful name, the name of Jesus. Receive your transformation today in Jesus name.
