Lift Jesus Up Always
“In that day the Root of Jesse will stand as a banner for the peoples; the nations will rally to him, and his place of rest will be glorious.”(Isa. 11:10) INDEED, “when I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw all men to myself.”(John 12:32) says the Lord.
Over against the present world order, the Lord Jesus proclaims: “And I …” The expression contrasts sharply with what precedes it, even as the One it identifies stands in contrast with His antagonist, the prince of this world. Jesus, through the cross, through the obedience to death of Him who is God’s grain of wheat: “I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.”(24). One day, this world’s rule by compulsion and fear is to end with the fall of its proud ruler. And with His springing up once more to life there has come into being in its place a new reign of righteousness and one that is marked by a free allegiance of men to Him. With cords of love their hearts will be drawn away from a world under judgment towards Jesus the Son of Man, who though lifted up to die, was by that very act lifted up to reign. Really, “for this very reason, Christ died and returned to life so that he might be the Lord of both the dead and the living.”(Romans 14:9)
CONFESS AS FOLLOWS:
The LORD will use uncommon techniques to disgrace any opposition against my life. Every satanic hindrance targeted against my angel of blessing is dissolved and dematerialized by fire. I order my angel of blessing to locate me today, and bring to me, dominion prosperity. The blessing of the LORD makes me rich, and I shall enjoy life exceedingly. People around me shall say with me that, ‘MINE JESUS IS EVER LIFTED’ (Matthew 16:19)
