The Abundant Life

Scripture: John 10 v 10: "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."  

In this conversation with His disciples, Jesus compares His mission to Earth with that which Satan continues to do.

Jesus calls him a thief, even The Thief, because he originated nothing, created nothing, improved nothing, yet conned Adam and Eve to relinquish control of this world to him.  He then managed to twist everything into a downgrade through sin against God.

He first stole the innocence of Adam and Eve, which caused them to wrap their bodies in fig leaves and then warped all creation with his venom.  Venomous insects, snakes, plants, mushrooms, animals, fish - many species have the ability to kill mankind.

Satan the serpent maimed the human race by finding a way to tamper with our genes, so that what God created perfect was now tainted with corruption, stigma, disorder, syndrome, and physical, mental and emotional challenges.

Those who have followed this blog may realise that these evils befell us before the world was formed when we were held hostage by Satan and at his mercy.  Our fate was sealed before we were ever born on this Earth, and everything written in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation is the Rescue Plan, and why God did not simply allow the Flood to wipe out the whole planet and throw away the key.

It was a challenge to piece together the jigsaw puzzle pieces of the glimpses I was given of events in Heaven especially the Bride, who was taken from the side of the Son of God and became this beautiful woman He loved from the start.  I saw how Lucifer inserted himself into her presence and then found references in the Bible to confirm it.

Ezekiel 28 v 12 - 15: "Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.
 13  Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.
 14  Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
 15  Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee."

The king of Tyrus is another name for Satan the tyrant.  This scripture shows how he was not only created a musical spirit but with all the precious jewels as part of His make up too.  The place he was given to cover was Earth and he covered it with music and precious stones that are still desired by humans to this day and beyond.

Lucifer, who became Satan, the Great Red Dragon, was the anointed cherub.  He was in Eden, the garden of God.  That first Eden I was shown was in Heaven where the Bride stayed while the Bridegroom was building her mansion.  Lucifer got in there bedevilled with all his jewels and dazzled her with his glib tongue.

He captured her, stole her, and caused her to betray Jesus on her wedding day.  She did it again in the Earthly Eden, and in Jerusalem 2000 years ago.  She will betray Him one more time when she signs the 7 year Peace Treaty in the presence of the Antichrist.  

Only then, after 42 months of tribulation will her eyes be opened to her real husband.  Israel will acknowledge Jesus and mourn for Him whom they have pierced. Zechariah 12 v 9 -10: "And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
 10  And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn."

Satan stole, maimed, destroyed and killed the Bride of Christ, and made her his wife and did unspeakably evil things to her.  He hates her, and all God's creation, and without the grace, mercy and love of God, he would succeed in destroying us all.  He shattered her spirit and each fragment became a soul.  Each soul retained the horrors of evil in their memories and was place in bodies of flesh to heal and rescue them.

Likewise Jesus, the great I AM.  I Am THAT I am He said to Moses out of the burning bush.  You heard Me Moses saying I am going to be the ransom for her.  Now Moses its your turn to help deliver her from Pharoah and bring her to her homeland.  I will be with you, said Jesus, and He was, doing many miracles before Pharoah let Israel go.

He was likewise shattered when He went down into the Satanic realm, which I call the Six Day Realm, because that's when God was busy making Earth.  One day is equal to 1000 years says Peter, and it has been 6002 years since Adam in Eden.  His shattered parts became the Gentiles, and those saved out of that group are the Body of Jesus, the Bridegroom.

His one desire is to give life to us, and that life begins the moment we are born again and cleansed of sin by His Blood.  We are then a work of restoration in progress and must co-operate with Him to let Him change us into His likeness.  We need to be a tissue perfect match so the body will not reject us.  Like every good transplant specialist now knows.

When our new life as new creations begins to grow, we start to experience the abundant life.  Abundance means more than enough!  We flourish in our spiritual lives and that filters down into our emotional, mental and physical lives.  We have abundant health because Jesus the Healer reigns supreme within our spirit.

We have love, power and a sound mind when we are nourished by His presence within us.  We are able to help others who are struggling with addictions, infidelities, infirmities, diseases, sorrows and we become ministers of God to them.  It's not a college degree and a collar, its the love in your heart that earns you favour with the Lord.

He blesses us with abundance in every sphere of life when we earn the right to be trusted with His riches.  We will always have enough to help others too.  He came to rescue us from sin, poverty, squalor, famine, disease, addictions, bitterness, degenerate behaviour, murder, rape, abuse and death.  

Many do not know what they have inherited because they do not read the Bible.  They don't know that demons have been defeated and we can now deal with them like Jesus did.  They don't know that divine faith and life are our portion until we tell them the truth.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, its wonderful for me to know the whole story of Your love for us and why Satan can never be forgiven.  Help us to share the whole truth, and nothing but the truth to a dying world, suffering from lack of knowledge.  Give us the abundant life so we can share more with others.  In Jesus' name. Amen.
