Summary: TO PRESENT ALL THE BENEFITS OF THE GOSPEL

  Study Tools

FEW BELIEVERS HAVE SEEN THE VISION OF THE FULLNESS OF THE GOSPEL. THE GOSPEL OF JESUS INCLUDES SO MUCH BLESSINGS THAT ONLY FAITH CAN ACESS THEM. THOSE GLORIOUS BENEFITS ARE LISTED IN ISAIAH 61. FIRST OF ALL, TO US ALL PREACHERS, WE NEED THE SPIRIT OF GOD TO POSSESS US: TO COME UPON US IN POWER (VERSE 1). THE GOSPEL IS NO MERE WORDS OR JUST DOGMA: BUT AS PAUL SAID: DEMONSTRATION OF SPIRIT POWER. TODAY WE HAVE SO MUCH THEOLOGY BUT NO POWER. I USED TO BE A BIG HEAD, BUT MY EYES ARE OPENED TO SEE THAT WITHOUT THE SPIRIT OF GOD, I CAN DO NOTHING. PREACHERS DO NOT PREACH WITHOUT POWER. WHAT ARE OUR COVENANT RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES THAT THE GOSPEL OF JESUS HAS GIVEN US? FIRST OF ALL, THE WORD GOSPEL MEANS GOOD NEWS. GOOD NEWS MEANS JOY! WHEN YOU HEAR GOOD NEWS THAT PRODUCES JOY IN YOU! RIGHT? THE FIRST BLESSING OF THE GOSPEL IS JOY! THIS JOY COMES TO THE MEEK (ORIGINAL HEBREW "AFFLICTED"). THOSE WHO LIVE WITHOUT CHRIST ARE SEVERELY AFFLICTED. THEY ARE SAD. YOU CAN SEE THE SADNESS IN THEIR EYES. THE FIRST AND FOREMOST BLESSING THAT THE GOSPEL AFFORDS YOU IS JOY: FOR THE KINGDOM (GOSPEL) OF GOD DOES NOT CONSITS IN FOOD OR DRINK BUT JOY..... IN THE HOLY SPIRIT. THE GOSPEL ALSO INCLUDES INTERNAL HEALING: JESUS CAME TO HEAL THE BROKEN HEARTED. MAYBE YOUR HEART IS BROKEN. OTHERS HAVE HURT YOU. YOU ARE DEEPLY DEPRESSED. THIS INNER HEALING IS WHOLENESS OR HAPPINESS! THE HEART BROKEN IS INTERNAL, THE MEEK (AFFLICTED) IS EXTERNAL. HE COMES TO HEAL THE WOUNDS IN YOUR HEART. HE COMES TO HEAL YOU FROM DEPRESSION AND MISERY AND UNHAPPINESS! HALLELUYAH THIS BLESSING IS INCLUDED IN THE GOSPEL! IN FACT, JESUS IS THIS JOY! JESUS IS HAPPINESS! OUTSIDE OF HIM THERE IS NO HAPPINESS AT ALL. BUT THE GOSPEL (JESUS IS THE GOSPEL) DOES NOT ONLY GIVE YOU JOY, BUT ABUNDANT JOY: THE OIL OF JOY (VERSE 3). THIS IS THE ANOITING OF JOY! THIS IS THE OVERFLOW OF JOY! THIS IS THE ABUNDANT LIFE: I HAVE COME THAT YOU MIGHT ENJOY ME ABUNDANTLY! THIS IS THE GOSPEL! THIS ARE THE GLORIOUS GOOD NEWS! THIRDLY, THE GOSPEL INCLUDES LIBERTY. LIBERTY FROM WHAT? THE GOSPEL IS LIBERTY FROM SIN! YOU ARE NO LONGER A SINNER, BUT A SAINT. THROUGH THE DEATH OF CHRIST, YOU ARE FREE FROM SIN! YOU WERE A SLAVE OF SIN BUT ROMANS 6 CLEARLY DECLARES THAT GOD HAS SET YOU FREE FROM SIN IN CHRIST JESUS! YOU ARE NOT A SLAVE, BUT A FREE SON OF GOD! THIS IS ALSO LIBERTY FROM THE CURSE OF SIN AND OF THE LAW! THIS ALSO INCLUDES LIBERTY FROM THE BONDAGE OF SICKNESS! "BY HIS STRIPES WE WERE HEALED". HE DIED FOR OUR LIBERTY FROM SICKNESS! SOME CHRISTIANS BELIEVE THAT GOD WANTS THEM SICK. IF GOD WANTS YOU SICK, THEN WHY JESUS BORE YOUR SICKNESSESS ON THE CROSS? DID HE NOT PAID THE PRICE? BELOVED, HEALING IS THE BREAD OF GOD'S CHILDREN! DON'T DENY THE BREAD THAT THIS CHILDREN NEED TO EAT! HEALING IS OUR BIRTHRIGHT AS BELIEVERS! WE ARE ENTITLED TO DIVINE HEALING! JESUS PAID THE PRICE! FOURTH, JESUS CAME TO OPEN THE DARK DUNGEONS OF THE PRISONS (VERSE 1). THIS PRISONS ARE DARK, NO SUNLIGHT COMES INSIDE. THUS, TO BE SET FREE, OH UNBELIEVER, YOU NEED DIVINE LIGHT, THAT IS DIVINE REVELATION. THE GOSPEL IS A REVELATION. THE GOSPEL IS NO MERE DOGMA OR MAN'S INVENTION! THE GOSPEL IS DIVINE! UNLESS GOD REVEALS YOU HIS GOSPEL, YOU WILL NEVER BELIEVE. MAN'S GREATEST ENEMY IS IGNORANCE (MY PEOPLE PERISH FOR LACK OF VISION). REVELATION FROM GOD COMES TO ILLUMINATE YOU MIND AND GIVE YOU THE REAL UNDERSTANDING OF THE TRUTH. ALSO THE COMING OUT OF THE PRISION IS ETERNAL JUSTIFICATION. IF A PERSON IS IN A JAIL OR PRISON IS BECAUSE THEY COMMITTED A CRIME. OUR SINS ARE CRIMES AGAINTS THE HEAVENLY COURT OF HEAVEN. BUT JESUS CHRIST PAID OUR BAIL! THE GOSPEL INCLUDES FORGIVENESS! ETERNAL FORGIVENESS; ALL YOUR SINS FORGIVEN: PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE! THIS ARE GOOD NEWS: FOREVER FORGIVEN WHEN YOU CONFESS YOUR SINS AND BELIEVE IN JESUSCHRIST! YOU ARE NO LONGER A PRISONER, BUT ETERNALLY JUSTIFIED IN GOD'S EYES THROUGH THE DEATH OF HIS SON JESUS. THE GOSPEL IS THE ACCEPTABLE YEAR OF THE LORD (VERSE 2). THIS YEAR IS NOT A LITERAL YEAR BUT AN AGE. THIS IS THE GRACE OF GOD: THE AGE OF GRACE. GRACE IS THE GOSPEL AND KINGDOM OF GOD. YOU ARE ETERNALLY ACCEPTED IN CHRIST JESUS, NEVER TO BE JUDGED AGAIN! THESE ARE GOOD NEWS! GOD IS NOT AGAINST YOU, BUT ALWAYS IN YOUR FAVOR! AND THAT IS GOD'S GRACE: UNMERITED FAVOR! IF IT IS MERITED THEN IT IS BASED ON YOUR GOOD WORKS. BUT SALVATION IS TOTALLY OUT OF GRACE AND GRACE ALONE. IF YOUR HAND IS INVOLVED IN SALVATION THEN YOU CAN GET APPLAUDED. BUT NO, IT IS TOTALLY OUT OF GOD'S FAVOR, NEVER OUT OF YOURSELF. THE BLESSING NUMBER 5 IS BEAUTY! THE GOSPEL BEAUTIFIES YOU! THE DRUG ADDICT BECOMES CLEAN! THE LAZY BECOMES HARD WORKING! THE VIOLENT BECOMES COMPASSIONATE! THE SOUR FACE BECOMES HEAVENLY SWEET. THE GOSPEL (JESUS) DOES ALL THIS IN THE VESSELS OF MERCY! YOU NO LONGER HAVE TO LIVE ASHAMED BUT EXALTED IN CHRIST JESUS! RISE UP! FOR JESUS WHO IS THE GOSPEL OF GOD LIVES IN YOU! RISE UP! CHILD OF GOD! THE GOSPEL INCLUDES THE GARMENTS OF PRAISE! THIS IS CELEBRATION! YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIVE IN BONDAGE TO DEPRESSION AND SADNESS, YOU CAN SAY WITH THE APOSTLE PAUL: REJOICE ALWAYS! AGAIN REJOICE! THEN WHEN THE TRUE GOSPEL OF JESUS BEGINS TO WORK IN YOU GOD IS GLORIFIED IN YOU! THE END OF THE GOSPEL IS THAT GOD BE MOST GLORIFIED IN US! HE IS GLORIFIED IN OUR WELL BEING IN HIM! HIS GLORY IS HE AS OUR WELL BEING! HALLELUYAH! THIS IS THE GOSPEL! THIS ARE THE GOOD NEWS! IT IS ALL ABOUT HIS GLORY SHINNING THROUGH US! HE HAS PLANTED US IN CHRIST, WHO IS GOD'S GROUND! SURELY, THAT IS GOOD GROUND! WE ARE THE TREES OF RIGHTEOUSNESS ( VERSE 3). GOD HAS IMPUTED TO US THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF HIS SON, AND WE ALSO HAVE THE RIGHTEOUS NATURE OF HIS SON! WE ARE THE TREES OF RIGHTEOUSNESS BECAUSE OUR FRUIT IS RIGHTEOUSNESS: THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF CHRIST! IT IS OUR NATURE TO EXPRESS RIGHTEOUSNESS BECAUSE HE HAS MADE US TREE OF RIGHTNEOUNESS, NO LONGER SINNERS. SOME OF YOU STILL THINKING THAT YOU ARE SINNER, BUT GOD SAYS THAT YOU ARE A TREE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS! YOU ARE NO LONGER SINFUL, BUT RIGHTEOUSS! THEN WHY SOME CHRISTIANS SIN? WELL, THEIR MINDS HAVE NOT BEEN RENEWED. THEY STILL THINKING LIKE OLD CREATURES WHEN THEY ARE A NEW CREATION! THE GOSPEL MAKES YOU A NEW CREATION, BEHOLD, ALL (ALL! ) OLD THINGS ARE PASSED (PASSED!) AWAY! GOD IS IN THE BUSINESS OF RESTORING LIVES (VERSE 4). THE GOSPEL COMES TO RESTORE YOUR LIVE, TO MAKE YOU A NEW YOU. THIS IS THE BLESSING OF THE GOSPEL WHICH GOD PROMISED TO ABRAHAM, THUS YOU ARE NO LONGER CURSED BUT ETERNALLY BLESSED! YOU SEE, JESUS TOOK YOUR CURSE (THE CURSE OF THE LAW) THAT YOU MAY BECOME THE BENEFICIARY OF GOD'S GRACE FREELY! SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE? BUT ONLY FAITH CAN ACCEPT IT! YOU SEE GOD HAS BLESSED YOU SO MUCH, THAT STRANGER WILL FEED YOUR FAMILY (VERSE 5) YOU WILL ALWAYS BE THE HEAD AND NEVER THE TAIL! YOU SHALL REIGN IN LIFE! YOU WILL BE A LEADER AND NOT A TAIL! CHRISTIANS ARE CALLED TO RULE IN GOVERTMENTS, AS PRESIDENTS, PRIME MINISTERS, AND GENERALS. PEOPLE WILL ACKNOWLEDGE US AS GOD'S PRIESTS (VERSE 6). THEY WILL TOUCH GOD'S PRESENCE IN US. WE WILL CONNECT THEM TO GOD'S PRESENCE. THEY WILL REALIZE THAT WE ARE GOD'S REPRESENTATIVE ON EARTH. THEY WILL SEE US AS GOD'S AGENTS, AS GOD'S HOLY INSTRUMENTS OF GRACE. THE GOSPEL (JESUS) PRODUCES ALL THIS IN US. "WE SHALL EAT THE WEALTH OF THE GENTILES". THIS IS FINANCIAL PROSPERITY. THE GOSPEL INCLUDES THE BLESSING OF FINANCIAL PROSPERITY. DO YOU THINK THAT GOD WANTS YOU POOR? WHO CAN YOU HELP WHEN YOU ARE FINANCIALLY POOR? DO YOU THINK GOD HAS MADE YOU RICH FOR YOU IDOLATROUS PLEASURES? NO, IT IS TO HELP OTHERS! TO EXPAND HIS GOSPEL! TO BUILD HIS KINGDOM ON EARTH! WHETHER YOU ACCEPT IT OR NOT, WHETHER YOU PREACH AGAINST IT: GOD HAS BLESSED US TO PROSPER FINANCIALLY! IT IS HIS WILL, IT IS PART OF HIS GOOD NEWS! GOD HAS GIVEN US THE DOUBLE BLESSING! THE LAW PROMISED ONE BLESSING, BUT THE NEW COVENANT SEALED BY THE BLOOD OF CHRIST MULTIPLIES IT BY TWO! EVEN OUR DESCENDANTS WILL BE BLESSED BECAUSE WE ARE SO BLESSED OF THE LORD: THEY SHALL BE KNOWN AMONG THE NATION (THEY WILL BE FAMOUS!) BECAUSE THEY ARE THE SEED WHICH GOD HAS BLESSED (VERSE). BELOVED, YOU ARE NOT CURSED. THE LORD GOD WILL CAUSE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF HIS SON (IMPUTED RIGHTEOUSNESS) TO FLOURISH ON ALL EARTH! GOD'S GLORY (PRAISE) (VERSE 11) WILL SHINE THROUGH US! WE ARE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN CHRIST! WE ARE THE PRAISE OF GOD IN CHRIST! GOD IS GLORIFIED THE MOST IN BEING OUR WELL BEING! HIS GLORY IS TO BE OUR ENJOYMENT! THIS IS THE FULL GOSPEL! EVERYTHING YOU NEED FOR THE SPIRITUAL LIFE HAVE ALREADY BEEN GIVEN TO YOU! DON'T ASK FOR HUMILITY, BECAUSE CHRIST IS YOUR HUMILITY! DON'T ASK FOR PATIENCE, BECAUE CHRIST IS YOUR PATIENCE! BELOVED, THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST IS THE BLESSING OF THE GOSPEL! THIS GOSPEL IS THE COVENANT OF GRACE OF JESUSCHRIST! AND THIS COVENANT IS NOT BASED ON YOUR GOOD DEEDS, BUT ON CHRIST'S GOOD DEED ON CALVARY CROSS! TO HIM WHO PAID THE PRICE FOR THE FATHER TO BE GLORIFIED IN US AS ALL IN ALL BE ALL THE GLORY FOREVER AND EVER! AMEN! DO YOU BELIEVE THIS?
