God is Answering Part 3 – Ps John Bendixen (WTB)
A Teaching foundation: A legal dissertation.
The Creator of life is the Truth; and the foundation of everything in the Universe. There can be no other version of the truth. God’s will created a platform where Truth is worshiped. Everything in the universe is evaluated/judged against the Truth.
A legal position came about. Another will fundamentally questioned whether there was more than one God and more than one will. The enemy of God chose to express and to make his will equal to God (Isaiah 14:12-14 (NKJV). In Genesis 3:1-5 (NKJV) he presented an alternative truth that suggested the same status as God. But that cannot be, because if there is only One Truth, the alternative truth must be subjected to the One Truth. A legal position is only because there is a challenge to the will of God. Anything that questions God’s authority is not from God. The minute you choose the god that you want to serve, you create a platform for you to worship yourself/your will.
You have a legal position – in your spirit – that is free from condemnation.
(Romans 8:1-5 NKJV; 1 John 1:8-10 NKJV). If your spirit is born again, as a Christ-one, then you are in Christ Jesus and your legal position is no condemnation.
There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ. You are free positionally from any other order or will that want to accuse you.
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made you free from the law of sin and death. Your spirit is always guiding you to the things of the Spirit, not the things of the flesh. We deceive ourselves to say we do not have a carnal nature that always wants to impose itself in our lives. If we confess our sin (our own will that wants to rise up against the will of God, the Truth) then He is faithful and just to forgive us of our sin (willfulness) and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (the un-right way of living through our willfulness).
Jesus was manifested to take away our sins (our willfulness). (1 John 3:5-9 NKJV)
Any wicked behavior pattern that you do, that is the expression of your will, is lawlessness – is sin. In Him there is no sin (desire for my own will). Whoever abides in Him, does not sin (does not do his own will). For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil (the willful expression of yourself which you worship).
In the natural flesh, Jesus behaved lawfully; He lived the will of the Father. His will created a platform and His platform was a position of worship, therefore he had the power to live like the Father, for the Father, in the Father, with the Father. Because He did that, we have a legal position that we are no longer lawless. The way we are lawful is to submit to His will through the power of the legal position that Jesus took. All we have to do is believe in the power of His blood to put us in a position that we are now no longer lawless by nature, but lawful by the very nature of Jesus that is in us.
Your recreated spirit cannot sin.
Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God. When you get born again, your behavior pattern might be an expression of your will in ways that don’t please the One who Fathered you, but you will always remain an expression of His Seed. Your recreated spirit man cannot sin/express its will against the will of God; it remains pure and righteous. The seed of the incorruptible life of Christ that wants to worship Him, acknowledge Him, have Him guide and direct your life, remains in you. Your behaviour may be bad, but you stand in a legal, blood position, with no condemnation, because the life of Christ has made you free.
If you feed your spirit man with the Word of God, your spirit man will begin to transform your soul. (1 John 3:18-22 NKJV). The spirit man wants to worship God, which releases the power of worship, which overcomes your natural will. Those who are spirits, worship Him in spirit and in truth, because you cannot worship Him out of your will. 19And we know this that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before Him.
The illegal judge of the universe, the deceiver, tries to get your own heart to condemn you.
The enemy wants to keep making you think that you can’t be free of your will. He wants you to not to live in your legal position, but your lifestyle position, which is an expression of your will that you worship.
There are a lot of legalistic Christian believers, living according to the position of self-will, self-worship and self-ability to choose right and wrong. The church wants to label sin, which becomes a marginalization of behaviour patterns. Sin is a lifestyle choice/pattern (you, expressing your will, for whatever that you want to do, that makes you worship what you will). The devil wants you to live in a position in your real-life status of being in condemnation of your own lifestyle. When the enemy can bring you into your living position, he brings accusations against your heart, so that your heart condemns your behavior pattern. You then feel shame, you feel guilt, you feel like a failure and live with all manner of incapability of serving God with everything you’ve got. (I keep failing, I keep missing God, I keep doing my own thing, I don’t worship Him enough, I don’t thank Him enough, I keep having these desires that want me to be lawless).
It negates your legal position, because your heart’s condition becomes more real to you than your legal position in Christ Jesus. If you believe the illegal case of the enemy against you, you are going to keep paying ‘’attorney fees’’ (shame, guilt, work at trying to earn salvation – the law of sin and death).
put yourself back in an illegal judge’s hands who wants to judge your behaviour,
give in to this legal position of performance,
be bound in your own heart that condemns you.
The enemy says, “You see that living position; you are not worthy; you are not good enough; you are not strong enough to be a Christian that can do or make any difference”.
The Lord says, “I don’t want you to focus on the will that you worship, the will that you do every day. I want you to focus on your legal position in Jesus and I want you to worship Him. Worship Him for your legal position of freedom, because in Christ Jesus there is no condemnation against you. I am greater than our heart and I know all things. Don’t let you heart condemn you. Have confidence in Me”.
We’re in a defining moment now.
If you allow the enemy of God to deceive you, to allow your heart to condemn you so that you’re always in the court of law of justifying your behavior, of justifying what you do, then you never grow into the place where you have confidence in God. If your own heart still condemns you, you will not speak the power and authority of God for things to come to pass, because in your heart you don’t believe it, because your heart still condemns you that you’re not worthy enough to exercise such authority. It’s not about your worthiness, it’s about your worship, because God’s already made you worthy.
In this season, when the world is in chaos the Lord is saying, “Who are those people that I can call on, that will stand for Me, that can ask whatever and receive from me (I John 3:22 NKJV). We have the power in this season and this time to live free from the Coronavirus and all the devastation that it is bringing. We are separated from that, because, if we know who we are, we can ask Him what we want, and He will give it. When we know that is real in our lives, we can begin to show it to others in their lives. We are the Church that has the answer. We’ve got to actually understand who we are as the church, if we’re actually going to become the answer, to not only our lives but to everybody else’s lives.
This message created a legal position for us to have confidence in God, for restoration and to experience the freedom of living as a Christ-one. God is calling us to be Christ-ones, legally positioned in Christ and to l live in authority, as Jesus did.
Worship Him in your legal position (not your life position)
Say, I am not condemned to the judgement of the enemy that says whenever I do my will I must worship myself and my outcomes and therefore I must work for the rest of my life trying to get free of my will. The case against me has been discharged from heaven. There is no accusation against me.
I take up my legal position, my legal standing, my legal authority and I worship You, Lord even though I am wrong in my will. Not because I am worthy in myself or what my heart feels, but because legally the spirit man in me is calling me to worship.
I enforce my legal position of no condemnation and say, I am a son of God. I am legally authorized in Christ Jesus to worship. It doesn’t matter what I did yesterday or what I didn’t do yesterday, I am free in my heart condition to worship!
Whatever my weakness is, I stand behind the righteousness of Jesus Christ, who saved me from my own will. He gave me the power of worship to overcome my will, so that my platform is now the power of my worship, not the power of my will.
I receive my position of freedom in Christ Jesus and wherever my will raises itself up lawlessly, I tap into the power of God to be lawful. When my heart condemns me, I will worship and my authority will be restored, in Jesus’ name.
Pray, Thank You Lord that a yoke of bondage is removed today. I no longer receive accusations from the one who brings accusations. Thank You for a readiness of spirit that will allow me to be even more free, and walk in the ways that You want me to walk in.
I ask, Father, and I call … (my increase).
I speak against destruction and all those things that are coming against me that are preventing me from being free. Thank You, Jesus, that I am a son of God and I will worship You and my worship will release the power to live for You, in You, completely free in my life.
