Thank you Jesus
Brilliant – If He hadn’t found fault with the Old Covenant there would have been no need for the New Covenant – Thank you Jesu for fulfilling all the requirements of the Law so it could be put aside!!!
not about fault with OC. It was written by God, so there cant be fault. it is simply Christ fulfilled the OC and brought everyone into the NC.
This teaching seems like a clarification of earlier teaching. There are posts that describe that we trade our sinful selves and get in exchange His perfect self in righteousness (and by the same token we give him our sick selves, and get His perfect healing). Bill Johnson also believe that we must submit totally to God before He begins to hear and take into consideration our desires because only the submitted self is able to receive desire. I guess the only “requirement” to get what God’s grace provides is having the preference for God providing rather than requiring. Hope that seems clear or clear-er. 🙂
Also elsewhere you’ve stated that we have to choose between trying and trusting. It’s clear to me that trying refers to seeking our own salvation (like deists or some self-styled “self-made” millionaries) while trusting refers to an agressive yet peaceful holding and pressing into a love Father who surrounds us with the same peace and agressive love.
Proof texting only work if you consider the whole counsel of The Lord.
1Thess. 3:8 For we now live, if you continue to stand firm in the Lord.
Col. 1:23 provided that you continue securely established and steadfast in the faith, without shifting from the hope promised by the gospel that you heard, which has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven. I, Paul, became a servant of this gospel.
Heb. 3:14 For we have become partners of Christ, if only we hold our first confidence firm to the end.
If I had a dollar for every time I was told to consider the whole counsel of God, I’d be a very rich man. Fortunately, I have considered it.
