Dear Sisters and Brothers in Jesus the Christ,

13) See, my servant will prosper, he will be highly exalted.  14) Many were amazed when they saw him—beaten and bloodied, so disfigured one would scarcely know he was a person. 15) And he will again startle many nations. Kings will stand speechless in his presence. For they will see what they had not previously been told about; they will understand what they had not heard about.”  Isaiah 52:13-15 (NLT)

 In Romans 15:19, the Apostle Paul writes about winning over the lost; that miracles worked as signs of GOD by the power of the Holy Spirit may draw those who know nothing about the all redeeming, recreating, reconciling, pacifying, all restoring blood of Jesus. It is exactly the same today for each person reconciled unto the Family of God by the Blood. The church is far more than an edifice or denomination; the church is the Body of Christ. More specifically, those rendered sons & daughters of God by the redemptive work of Christ Jesus comprise His Body, and He is the universal & supreme Head (Ephesians 1:22 [AMP]; Psalm 8:6). Therefore, the seemingly ever-increasing problems in the earth are to be resolved by the church – the Body of Christ via The Blessing operated by faith that is powered by divine love. The goal of the thief who only comes to steal and kill and destroy (John 10:10a) is to thwart all of that; the thief’s system depends upon, yea, it relies on doubt which ushers in fear and is powered by hate. Ever since the first Adam forfeited The Blessing by using free-will to go against the always good and better plan of God, a significant number of men (i.e., male, female) seem intent to follow suit. The Messiah sent of God the Father and born as man is the only One who walked in perfect obedience to the will of the Father for the benefit of all mankind. Scripture tells us that the Lord Jesus solved problems everywhere He went. The throngs of people who continually sought Him, never even allowing solitary time after the beheading of His cousin John the Baptist (Matthew 14:1-14), were delivered from every oppressive snare of the devil. The father of lies, failed in every way sought to tempt Christ into speaking and doing contrary to the will of God (Luke 4:1-13); the Lord Jesus only spoke and did as He heard of the Father (John 5:19 & 8:26b,28,38 & 12:49-59 & 14:10). At the start of His ministry Jesus proclaimed (spoke out loud) His purpose or mission that would BE accomplished by the power of the Holy Spirit: “God’s Spirit is on me; he’s chosen me to preach the Message of good news to the poor, Sent me to announce pardon to prisoners and recovery of sight to the blind, To set the burdened and battered free, to announce, ‘This is God’s year to act!’ . . . . You’ve just heard Scripture make history. It came true just now in this place!Luke 4:19-21 (MSG). From that point forward, Jesus the Anointed One and His Anointing healed the sick and fed the hungry; it is the life in Him which shines light into every dark place for far more than exposure . . . it completely obliterates every aspect of darkness. This is the same light within all who are “in Him”; the Lord Jesus referred to us as the light of the world which shines of good deeds to the praise and glory of the Father (Matthew 5:14-16). These are they to whom the Lord Jesus gave authority to use the Name above every name (Matthew 28:18; Ephesians 1:21 [AMP]), and has told us to Mark 16:15-18. For God the Father desires to work His power through all who come to Him through Christ Jesus. Therefore, those called out of darkness and into the Kingdom of His only begotten Son (Colossians 1:13) aren’t to be polite about sickness nor malevolence and/or malfeasance which are only to the detriment of others as perpetrated by satan – a defeated foe (Colossians 2:15). Now – this day, more than 2,000 years after the redemptive work of Christ Jesus reinstated The Blessing upon all “in Him”, we are to give evidence that we belong to GOD (2 Corinthians 1:22; Ephesians 1:13-14 & 4:30) via manifested blessings for the benefit of others by the power of God within (Ephesians 3:20). God’s thoughts are higher (Isaiah 55:8-9) and our thoughts are to BE like His as opposed to the lowly, self-deprecating thoughts proffered by the worldly system. To paraphrase that which was succinctly stated by a man of God, a significant number of us exercise faith in the Blood and faith in the Name, now (this day) it is imperative for us to exercise faith in The Blessing.1 All to the honor, praise, and glory of God, with thanksgiving in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Speak the promise . . . Harriet
