The Sequel to “I Cut Him Off!”
God continues to reveal Himself to us.
In a Word Press post, dated March 12, 2019, I wrote about a prophetic dream that God gave me based on two key portions of Scripture. They were Daniel 9:26 and Isaiah 53. The title of the post was “I Cut Him Off”. The purpose of the dream was a revelation that God Himself was responsible for the death of Christ and why He did it.
Towards the end of that post, I stated: “There may be more to come on this topic; there may be more to share about this dream because the words, ‘I cut him off’ may have more meaning than I know at this point. If He gives me further information I will certainly share it.”
Well, guess what. Tonight’s post is that “further information” that I felt about a month ago. I prophetically speak to you, dear readers. God says, “Yes, I cut Him Off, but I raised Him Up.”
Today is Friday, April 19, 2019, and we are approaching Sunday, April 21st, the celebration of the Resurrection Day of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It is the single HOLIEST Day on the Christian calendar. Christians all over the world eagerly await the day. It commemorates the day that Our Heavenly Father raised His beloved and only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, the Messiah, from the dead. It is the day that Jesus completed His assigned task of dying for our sins and opening up the pathway for men to be able to fellowship with our Heavenly Father again.
God’s words to my heart were: “Yes, I cut Him off, but I raised Him up again”. These words are corroborated by the scripture, Deuteronomy 32:39, which states “See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.”
God spoke to us and gave us an important revelation about Himself as far back as the Book of Deuteronomy. He said that He has the ability to kill and to make alive. He enacted this revelation using His own Son. And, following the resurrection, the same words “I wound and I heal” were enacted in the life of our Lord and Savior. Because Jesus was obedient to His Father and was wounded, His father did and will greatly honor, bless, exalt and reward Him.
Step I in the healing of Jesus.
The first step in the healing of Jesus after His death and resurrection was His grand and magnificent ascension to His Father.
Luke 24:51 And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.
Acts 1:9: And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.
Step 2. Jesus was then seated at the right hand of His Father, a position of honor.
Romans 8:34 (KJV) 34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
Step 3. Jesus was given power, glory, honor, dominion forever.
Daniel, in Daniel 7: 13-14, saw it in this manner:
13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.
14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.
Philippians 2:9-11 completes that Old Testament prophecy in this manner:
9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
As a result of His obedience to God, Jesus is given a Kingdom that will endure forever and ever. He is worthy to be praised by every living soul. And every living soul now has an opportunity to live with our heavenly Father forever and ever. Worthy is the Lamb of God! And Worthy is the Father to be praised.
Prayer of gratitude
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank You for the revelation of Yourself as the initiator of the death of Jesus. But most of all, thank You for the revelation of Yourself as the rewarder of His obedience to Your Will by raising Him up. I am more encouraged to bow to Your Will and to do the things that You require of me.
My heart explodes with thankfulness and gratitude for Your Goodness towards mankind. If I had 10, 000 tongues I could not praise You enough.
And Jesus, with great humbleness, and gratitude, I lift my hands and heart to you. With weeping eyes I praise, I praise, I praise You for Your sacrifice. A million thanks I lift up to you for the sacrifice of your life for me. I vow to walk worthy to the best of my ability through the power of the Holy Ghost. On Resurrection Sunday and every day of the rest of my life, I will glorify Your Holy name. Amen.
