Reflecting The Heart Of Jesus

Bringing Heaven To Earth (Binding & Loosing)

🗝“But you,” he asked them, “who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” Jesus responded, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but my Father in heaven. And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overpower it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will have been loosed in heaven.”
Matthew 16:15‭-‬19 CSB
🗝Even them I will bring to My holy mountain, And make them joyful in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices Will be accepted on My altar; For My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations.”
Isaiah 56:7 NKJV
🗝He was afraid and said, “What an awesome place this is! This is none other than the house of God. This is the gate of heaven.” This stone that I have set up as a marker will be God’s house, and I will give to you a tenth of all that you give me.”
Genesis 28:17‭, ‬22 CSB

The only limits we have are the one’s we have accepted and God did not put them there. God, the one who spoke light and life into existence. The one who made the heaven’s and the earth in 6 days and rested on the 7th. We have access to the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead on that 3rd day. Why are we as his children not walking in this same power?

I believe the root of this problem is a misunderstanding of our identity. As we look at the life of Jesus, we can see that the devil tempted Jesus in the wilderness with “if you are the Son of God…” (Matthew 4:3). Why did satan attack Jesus here first? If he could make Jesus fall into the deception of being from this earth rather than seated in heavenly places, it would hinder him from walking out what God had commanded of him. A misunderstanding of your identity as a new creation in Christ will have you blending in with the rest of the world rather than slaying the giants in front of you. We must have a revelation of who we are as new creations. We must ask and receive truth about our new identity as a Child of God, the power of the Holy Spirit, and the authority that comes from being seated in heavenly places. When we do not understand these fundamentals, we blend in rather than stand out. You are bright light that was never meant to be hidden. Rather, God wants his light to shine through you for all the world to see.

Placed in heaven, we have the upper hand. What Jesus died to do was not only free us from our sin, heal us and make us whole, but adopt us as his children. God no longer looks at as servants but as son’s and daughter’s! We are more than conquerors, victorious, and triumphant as we trust in his promises. We are co-heirs of Christ! Another word for coheir is joint heir. Which means you are a person who has received and inheritance from Jesus Christ. When Jesus died on the cross and you made him the Lord of your life, you were given that same power and same authority. You are no longer a citizen of earth, but a citizen of heaven. The evidence of this is the Holy Spirit. Therefore, sickness and disease, lack of provision, and satan himself is all beneath you. No wonder why the Lord encouraged with John 16:33!

Do you have the heavenly perspective of being a Child of God and a coheir of Christ? God did not send us the spirit of God with limits. He sent his spirit without measure (John 3:34). God desires us to walk in the same power Jesus did. In fact, he desires us to do even greater works (John 14:12-14). We have been told many opinions of who we are and what we can do (especially from the world around us). However, opinions are just earthly views. What God has spoken is FACT and will never wither away, even when this world does.

Reflection Questions

  1. Have you allowed the world’s opinions to shape how you see yourself?
  2. Have you accidentally put limits on God and what he wants to do through you?
  3. How can you accurately see yourself the way HE see’s you?
  4. How does accurately seeing yourself as a coheir of Christ, seated in heavenly places, effect your everyday life?

God Is Calling His Children To Step Into The New! 🗣👉(MATTHEW 9)👈

👣Many things that have never been done before are bursting forth!

👣Things will no longer be done because of tradition but because the Spirit of God is leading!

👣Seeing yourself as less than is a misunderstanding of what Jesus has done for you!

👣There will be critics & people who are jealous and envious (just like the Pharisee’s) but they don’t matter. Your obedience to the Lord does!

Five minutes into scrolling into your news feed you are filled with 10 different media outlets interpretation on one story. Aunt Lucy is yelling at someone she has not talked to since high school and someone just went live to give another end time word. Social media can be used for the good or it can be used for evil. We can use the words we speak to bring life or death and we get to choose.

Let Your Light Shine

As Children of God, we are called to bear the image of Christ. In fact, the term Christian is known as being a ‘little Christ’. We live in a fallen world that desperately needs your light to shine for the world to see. It is as simple as speaking what God told you to speak. Bearing his image is biting your tongue and asking God what he thinks about someone rather than lashing out like Aunt Lucy. Being the light and salt of the earth is praying for those who are spiritual blind to be set free. Being a little Christ is freely extending the same grace and mercy you so undeniably need.

Renewing Your Mind

In order to do this, we must not rely on our own strength but the power and might of the Holy Spirit. The only way we can really reflect him and his nature is by spending time with him. We do this by what the word of God speaks as “renewing our mind”.

“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” -Romans 12:2 ESV

As we renew our mind, we will be able to know what is true and what is false is through a filtration of the Holy Spirit. This type of wisdom is also known as discernment. When the end time prophet gets on or we see the 10 news stories all with different twists due to bias views, we will be able to test the spirit. When we test the spirit, we are able to know if what they speak is true or false by already knowing the truth.

Not only are we able to discern, but we are transformed by the renewing of our mind. We are being transformed to look more and more like him, the light of the world, and less like the rest of the world. You are called to stand out and be a bright light that was not meant to be hidden!

Go & Bear His Image!

How do we go out an be ‘little Christ’s’? Being a Christian starts with your own personal relationship with the trinity itself. Not investing in your relationship with God is like any other relationship, it grows stagnant. We are able to be the light of the world and speak life by knowing the light and life of the world himself! We must get back to the secret place, a true place of intimacy with the father. God has given us assignments to bring heaven to earth. We can only fulfill these purposes and plans he has for us by sitting at his feet.

July’s monthly newsletter focus was on Identity, who we are in Christ as Children of God. There is nothing more foundational than knowing how God see’s you. This is a launching point for almost everything else you will learn in your walk with God. Below is a copy of the newsletter that was sent out to subscribers. I do not do this every month, so If you have not signed up yet, click here.

I also put out graphics, videos, and other content every single day (besides Sabbath) related to what Holy Spirit is speaking via Instagram and Facebook.

Here is the latest video:

*Unsure why the cover of the video makes me seem crazy. (Maybe it is the eye twitch??)

I will be continuing to write here at Let Love Be My Motive. But, I wanted to be sure you had all the wonderful tools for us to stay connected!
