When Jesus appeared to me years ago, I learned that He is nothing like what religion has painted Him out to be. He is a God of Love! When He stood before me, I felt rivers and rivers and rivers, of Living Love flowing out of Him! He is a God of Love! There is no darkness at all in Jesus. He is a God of Love and a God of Power! When you stand before Jesus Christ, no matter what your problems are or whatever your cares are, when you look at Him you know that He is More than Enough! He is the God that is more than enough! It seems that people think of Jesus as a little, skinny, weakling just standing on a cross. Yet Jesus Christ was not a wimp. He was a real, strong man! No one took His life when He was here on the earth. Rather, He freely laid it down on our behalf! Jesus Christ was a strong man! And He is now seated with God in heaven as the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. The Bible says that He is more than a conqueror! When you see Jesus Christ, you know that everything has been taken care of. When you stand before Him you do not think, “can He do it?” When you stand before Him you have complete confidence that HE CAN DO ANYTHING! As far as receiving from God is concerned, the only question that you have to ask yourself is, “Am I ready to receive?”
He is the King of Kings! We have to get a picture in our hearts of a BIG Jesus Christ! I John 4:4 says, “Greater is He that is in you than He that is in the world!” Something that we are all forgetting these days is that while everybody is waiting for a great move of God, the reality is that He is waiting for a great move on the part of the Church! We are the ones who have to do the changing in order to receive of His power. He has already done what it takes for us to receive from Him. He did this two thousand years ago, when He paid the price for us to take advantage of God’s life-changing power. Thank God He did it!
“What then shall we these things, if God is for us, who can be against us!” (Romans 8:31). Let us make this scripture more personal. In doing so we are not changing the Bible around, we are just allowing the scripture to speak to us in a more personal way. Say to yourself, “If God is for me, who can be against me?” We have to remember that, if God Almighty, the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords is for you, who in the world can be against you? It’s true, isn’t it? We sometimes forget that greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world. The scripture goes on to state, “He who did not spare, His own Son but delivered Him up for me, how shall He not freely give us all things? Who shall bring a charge against God’s Elect? It is God who justifies” (Romans 8:32-33). Listen carefully to what I am going to share with you because I asked Jesus years ago, “What stops people from receiving their miracles?” After all, He did pay the price for us to receive. Allow me to illustrate the kind of confidence in God’s love for you that you should have.
If you were to stand shoulder to shoulder, with the Lord Jesus Christ right this moment, along with King David, Elijah, Moses, Joshua, Paul and Peter, God Almighty and His Son Jesus Christ would not love them any more than He loves you!
If you were to stand before the Father God and Jesus was on your right hand side, the Father God would not love Jesus more than He would love you! Can you see that the devil does not want you to know that? You see, God Almighty has no favorites and He does not love anyone on the earth – past, present, or future – more than He loves you. So point to yourself and say, “I am loved! God does not love anybody more than He loves me!”
You have to confess that every day when you look in the mirror. Instead of looking into the mirror and seeing yourself, you have to see the Greater One in you and say, “There is not anyone in existence the God Almighty loves more than me!” This will change your whole life!
