I have an Old Testament; I was a sinner. I knew by the commandments and the laws. I entered in to my new testament when by faith I believed that Yahushua (Jesus) died for me, and if my old testament me, died with Him and was raised in newness of life. I started my New Testament. Before I was a sinner through the law, which showed me that, but now, by faith in His blood, shed for me, I have become the righteousness of God. His Spirit dwells within me. The in filling by the baptism of the Holy Spirit fills me with power, with the evidence of speaking in tongues.
I have had righteousness imputed to me and am as righteous as I'll ever be by His blood once and for all. Now the commandments are but a guide to
Take each thought captive to the obedience of Messiah Yahushua.
What is the obedience, commandment that He left us? John 15:12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
How do I follow that? By the Holy Spirit that dwells within, when I'm born again, and fills me with power when I've received the baptism in the Spirit.
Then am I equipped to preach the good news to every creature, cast out devils by His name, speak with new tongues, have the protection of God, and lay hands on the sick that they shall recover. Mark 16:15-18
This is the will of God.
My growth in the Spirit and faith is my authority and power to perform His will. I can do nothing of myself. Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Messiah which strengthens me.
His Word and my faith which comes by the Word, not just reading or hearing it read but seeing it manifest, come alive by power or hearing testimonies of those that have tasted of His mercy.
Stand in the authority trusted to you by Yahushua's sacrifice. Each of us has a ministry, we are to serve that is what minister means. Fight the good fight, run the race, you can't fail. The same Spirit, that raised Yahushua from the dead, dwells in you. I Corinthians 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
Would He dwell in you if you weren't righteous?
If you love God and your neighbor minister (serve) to them, this is the perfect will of God.
John 3:16-17 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.
