CLOTHED WITH JESUS’ ROBE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS

By: Rocky Oliver

   Do you know who first clothed man with coats of skin? It was God Almighty Himself, when He found Adam and Eve hiding behind the bushes because they were afraid of Him. They had become fearful and conscious that they had sinned against God. In their sin-consciousness, they realized that they were naked and that the glory of God, which had been their covering, was gone.

   So in Genesis 3:21 God killed an animal to clothe Adam and Eve with coats of skin. An animal had to die and its bloodied skin became their covering. This speaks of the blood of Jesus that covers you when He became your sin offering. The Lamb of God did not just take away your sins. He also gave you His righteousness.

   You are covered by Jesus’ blood. You are righteous by His blood. God has clothed you with the robe of righteousness, which was paid for by Jesus’ blood. I am not talking about a physical robe made of cloth. I am talking about the robe of righteousness that was on Jesus when He said to the storm in Matthew 8:23-27, “Peace, be still!” and there came a perfect calm and in John 11:38-44 when healing flowed from Him to the sick and when He raised Lazarus from the dead.

   When you believe that you are righteous because of Jesus’ blood, you will see the effects of wearing His robe of righteousness. You will see miracles happening before your very eyes. You become a blessing magnet, a favor or grace magnet. It is not your own righteousness, but the righteousness of Jesus which you have put on, that is attracting all these blessings of God into your life.

   Live in the consciousness of being clothed with Jesus’ robe of righteousness. Every day, come to God and say, “Father, I thank You that Jesus is my sin offering. He covers me from head to toe with His righteousness. What He is to You, I am. As He is now, so am I. I am in Him.” And you will see the manifestations of the blessings of health, wholeness, protection and provision that the robe attracts!

God Is Willing

By: Denise Oliver

   Did you know that you can rely on God's goodness? God is good and God is willing. No matter what you are facing today you can go to Him in prayer and trust Him and His willingness.One of the best descriptions or definitions of God's grace I have ever heard is: God's willingness to use His power and His ability on your behalf even though you do not deserve it. Most of the time Christians go to God in prayer on the basis of their worthiness. If that is the case no one would get their answer to prayer! Everything we receive from God starting with salvation is through grace. We see Father God's heart through His Word and particularly through 3 John 2, Beloved, I wish or desire above all things that you would prosper and be in health even as your soul prospers. The word salvation in the original text refers to healing, safety, soundness, and to rescue from danger and destruction. Romans 8:32 says, He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall He not with him also freely give us all things? Do you feel like your prayer life consists of trying to talk God into something? Rest assured that God is for you!Romans 8:31 declares, If God be for us who can be against us? By Grace through Faith we receive from God. Through faith and prayer mighty things can happen because of a gracious and loving Father.Go to Him today in prayer from a position of victory to a gracious God who in 2 Corinthians 2:14 says, Now thanks be unto God, which always causes us to triumph in Christ...

BE A BRIGHT SHINING EXAMPLE OF HIS LOVE, GRACE, AND WILLINGNESS TO A LOST AND DYING WORLD!

May His Goodness be put on display in your life today!
