Session Ninety-Three………………MAY 2018
Hello! We at UACCMI have been directed by the Holy
Spirit to provide a monthly series; we’ll call “Spirit Food”. Our purpose in doing this is to assist you in
your spiritual growth within the body of Jesus Christ (the anointed one and His
anointing). As the human body requires
food for the nourishment of the physical body, so the spirit also requires
feeding, for spiritual growth. Hosea 4:6
says – “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge …”. Brothers and sisters in Christ, we truly
desire you to live blessed lives in accordance with Deuteronomy 28:1-14. To live this type of life however, you need
make the quality decision to make God’s Word the final authority in your
life. These monthly sessions will aid in
your spiritual growth process. Once you
are presented with what the Word of God has to say about an issue, you are responsible
for receiving His love, grace, & favor; and the gift of His righteousness. Remember, you are greatly blessed, highly
favored, and deeply loved by your Heavenly Father.
Let’s focus on what it means to be established in God’s righteousness!
Have you ever
asked yourself why some Christians are constantly beset with overwhelming
challenges, sicknesses, and defeat if God’s promise, “No weapon formed against
you shall prosper” (Isaiah 54:17), is true?
Well, first you have to have knowledge of this promise. Having to have the knowledge of it makes it
conditional. Unfortunately, many
Christians are unaware of their rights and privileges as a Son or Daughter of
the Most High God and Joint Heir with Jesus — The Bible says – “In
righteousness you shall be established”. (Isaiah 54:14) When you are established in righteousness,
you will be far from oppression and terror, and not a single weapon formed
against you will prosper! (Isaiah 54:17)
It does not say that you won’t have “trials and temptations” in life, it
just says that none of them will prosper.
You are able to handle temptations the same way that Jesus did; by
saying “It is written”, “It is written”, “It is written”. (Matthew 4:4, 7,
&10) However, you need to know where
it is written to be able to do that.
This requires you to invest the time and find out. Our Heavenly Father loves you so much, and
desires you to be so blessed in this life.
So blessed, that you can be a blessing to others! Remember, we were raised with Jesus and sit
with Him in heavenly places spiritually speaking. We currently live on this earth, but as we
are seated with Him in heavenly places, we pray from victory, not for victory.
condition is not hard to meet. If you
have already made Jesus the Lord of your life, you have already been made the
righteousness of God because of Jesus’ finished work on the cross! When you received Jesus as your Savior, you
received the gift of righteousness which enables you to reign in life. (Romans 5:17) This righteousness does not come from you (by
your works) but from the Lord. (Isaiah 54:17)
When you are established in His righteousness, no weapon formed against
you will prosper. Being established in righteousness means that you are in
“right standing” with Almighty God!
Being in “right standing” with Him is your very foundation for security
in everlasting life! So God wants you to
know, to be sure of, and to grow in this revelation; that you are righteous by
the blood of Jesus, by His perfect sacrifice at the cross. When you feel as if
you are in a “storm”, you may have a tendency to begin to experience worry and
fear. Remind yourself of who you are in
Christ (Our Redeemer from God’s punishment and wrath). You are the righteousness of God in Christ
and you have His beloved child status! As you do this, you will begin to notice
the worry and fear dissipate, and leave you.
When you are established in righteousness, “you shall be far from
oppression, for you shall not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near
you”! (Psalm 91) This is why God wants
you to be established in righteousness.
He wants you to be free from fear, and far from oppression and terror.
So when the
pressure is on, hold fast to the belief that you are the righteousness of God
in Christ. Right believing is where no
weapon formed against you can prosper.
Jeremiah 29:11 says “For surely I know the plans I have for you, says
the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with
hope.” As you keep believing and
confessing your righteousness in Christ, revelation on “issues” will break
forth and you will experience His wisdom, the release of God’s miraculous
provision, divine protection and blessings into your life! I encourage you to read His Word and meditate
on it. If you’re reading this, but you
have not made Jesus the Lord of your life, and would like to, pray this prayer
out loud in an audible voice:
Heavenly Father, your Word says in Romans
10:9-10- “that if I confess with my mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in my
heart that You raised Him from the dead, that I would be saved. For with the heart one believes unto
salvation.” I believe your Word,
Heavenly Father, and confess Jesus Christ (the anointed one and His anointing)
as Lord of my life now. I believe that
You raised Him from the dead. I confess
that I was a sinner, but now I’ve been saved by Your grace, and in Your
thoughts, I am now in right standing with You.
I denounce Satan and all he stands for.
Write my name in the Lamb’s book of Life. In Jesus Name. Amen (so be it). Congratulations! If this is your first time praying this
prayer, please write and let us know!

I join my faith with yours to see the devourer rebuked (Malachi 3:11) and for
you to receive a harvest; pressed down, shaken together and running over (Luke
