Jesus is our circumcision…

Just as Jesus fulfilled the Sabbath so that there is no more Sabbath so Jesus fulfilled circumcision so that there is no more circumcision…

Circumcision was given to Abraham – pre-Law – as an outward sign of the promise which God had given him and to his descendants forever…

Jesus is the Seed – through Isaac your offspring shall be named (Genesis 21:12)…

Jesus was circumcised and through Jesus all who have clothed themselves with Jesus Christ have been circumcised – cut off – in Him…

He is our Circumcision…

Just as He is our Sabbath…

So both Circumcision and the Sabbath were fulfilled by Jesus on the cross…

There’s a mystery here – Acts 7:8 – Abraham was given the Covenant of Circumcision – Genesis 17 is clear that it applies throughout his descendant’s generations but then Genesis 21:12 tells us that through Isaac Abraham’s offspring will be reckoned and then Galatians 3:16 tells us that Jesus is the Seed – standing metaphorically in the place of Isaac – through which the promises would be fulfilled…

Jesus fulfilled the need for circumcision – we were in the loins of Jesus when He was circumcised for us just as Levi was in the loins of Abraham when Abraham paid tithes to Melchizedek…

Jesus finished circumcision in His Body on the cross when He was “cut off” for us…

I have a strong witness from the Holy Spirit that what I am saying is true…

Search it out, seek the Lord on it for yourself – but I believe strongly that what I am sharing is the truth…

But it makes sense – as the children of Abraham are those of the faith of Abraham and once we come into Christ all that Christ did is credited to our account – we are complete in Him – in Christ…

Tithing is another one…

Jesus is our Tithe…

Abraham paid tithes – of the spoils of war not of his own produce – to Melchizedek – Hebrews 7 – it’s all really above my head but I am in awe of God – this whole Melchizedek thing – takes us back to before the Law where Jesus “takes over” from Melchizedek and becomes our High Priest forever in the order of Melchizedek…

Jesus was offered up to the Lord – as the Firstborn Son – as our tithe to God…

We are completely accounted for by the Sacrifice of Jesus…

That is why we are encouraged to give generously as it is on our hearts to give…

We don’t have to give…

Abraham didn’t have to give to Melchizedek but he wanted to – and he did – it was “meant to be” – he was fulfilling something way over my head that Hebrews 7 explains – I reckon Paul got this revelation (Hebrews 7) in his third heaven experience – that’s just my opinion – as I reckon Paul wrote Hebrews – it just “feels” like him – Paul… 🙂

So we’re covered by Christ – He is our Circumcision, He is our Sabbath and He is our Tithe – we are complete and completely covered in Him…

We are so complete…

Praise You Jesus…

You are Wonderful to me…

Nothing to strive for – just receive and let flow through us the free gift of God – He gives His Spirit without measure…

Come into the Presence of God and receive from Him – receive Eternal Life – flowing out of your inmost being – Rivers of Living Water – His death became your life – let Him live in you – He will not disappoint you – for Hope does not disappoint – but He who God brought back from the dead will give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who indwells you…

Jesus is our Circumcision – He was “cut off” for us…

He took the wrap…

He sanctified Himself that we might also be sanctified…

He loved us unto death – He lived for us…

He lived perfect for us – but you know He wouldn’t have had it any other way – He wouldn’t have had it any other way because He loved the Father and He would have done what His Father told Him to do even if He could have done anything else – we see this when He faced the cross – when He faced the thought of taking on the Father’s Wrath – He re-coiled from this – He did – but He went through with it because He trusted His Father…

His Blood and the Water which flowed touched the earth – it touched the earth so that the Blood of God and the Water of God touched – was poured out – on the earth which He created causing the entire earth to become an Altar for God…

He was poured out on the Sacrifice and Service of God – similar to what Paul says happened to him later on – on the Altar of this earth…

He sanctified the entire earth that day – He covered it – He covered it with His very Life’s Blood – with the very Water from His Pierced Side – Oh, I love You Jesus…

You are the Great High Priest – You are Worthy…

You are Worthy…

Worship You Jesus…

You are the Soon and Coming King and we bow and worship before You – Your Humility has given You the Right – the Sole Right – to reign – and you shall reign on this earth – and we shall reign with You – submitting to and yielding to Your Authority on this earth…

Bless You Lord…

For neither is circumcision anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation. And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God. (Galatians 6:15-16 NASB)

and in Him you were also circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, in the removal of the body of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ; (Colossians 2:11 NASB)

Therefore remember that formerly you, the Gentiles in the flesh, who are called “Uncircumcision” by the so-called “Circumcision,” which is performed in the flesh by human hands–remember that you were at that time separate from Christ, excluded from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who formerly were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace, and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, by it having put to death the enmity. (Ephesians 2:11-16 NASB)

Praise You Jesus – all one in Christ Jesus – we – the Gentiles – are now with instead of being separate from Christ – we – the Gentiles – are now included instead of excluded from the Commonwealth of Israel – we – the Gentiles – are now partakers of and familiar with the covenants of promise instead of being excluded from them and now we – the Gentiles – are with hope in the world instead of without it…

We have everything freely given to us in Christ and this was always His Purpose – He wanted the whole Jewish race to achieve this but they failed – so He came and achieved it all by Himself – as a single Jewish Man – He achieved the reconciliation of the entire world to the Father on the cross so that all that the Father gives to Him – Jesus Christ – Yeshua HaMashiach – will come to Him and experience the Forgiveness, Healing, Cleansing & Deliverance which He won on the cross – and eventually experience the resurrected body that He experienced when He was glorified and welcomed into heaven to sit at the Right Hand of God His Father…

Praise You Jesus – there really isn’t anything left to do – nothing – He has done it all – but as we yield to His Holy Spirit He completes the work on earth which He needs to complete so that we and in turn the world may see His Glory – manifested through yielded, surrendered human vessels – won by His Love and not berated by His Wrath (His Wrath no longer “abides on us”) – won by His Love and not motivated by fear (although we respect Him and His Authority over our lives as our Lord) – in love with Him and surrendered to go anywhere He calls – without even a thought of sacrifice – because we have been won by His love – and stripped of everything else – nothing else remains in us but love for Him (and reverential fear and submission to Him as Lord) – our circumcision has been made complete – Praise You Jesus – this is what You died for – a company of practically circumcised “cut off” human beings – who love You more than their own lives – You have won my heart with a single look from Your Eyes – You have won my heart as the beloved was won by his beloved in Song of Solomon – You have ravished my heart Lord with a single look from Your Eyes – You have ravished my heart and I am won for You…

Come Lord Jesus and take Your Place…

About andrew james horton

Hi, my name is Andrew James Horton... I am a Kiwi (New Zealander), born in Christchurch (05 September 1971), now in my mid-forties (I feel so old saying that)... I am blessed to be married with five children and six grandchildren... :-) I am at present a Technical Director - Design, Director working in Christchurch, New Zealand... I am passionate about prophetic intercession and about revival both in New Zealand and throughout the world... I am passionate to pray that the Church, the Body of Christ, the Bride of Christ, will be all that He - the Lord Jesus Christ - desires her to be in our generation... I felt that the Lord gave me the name of this blog site, "a house of prayer for the nations - prophetic intercession for worldwide revival" and wanted me to "put it out there" and start recording the prayers which are on my heart to pray in the hope that others would also be encouraged to share the prayers which are on their hearts to pray and that in the unity of the Spirit we could participate together in this activity in different locations around the world as He leads us... If the Lord leads you, let's join in prayer for the Lord's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven in our generation... Love in the Lord, Andrew
