Shame…

I’ve been listening to quite a few TED Talks lately and a common theme which has been coming out is the theme of shame…

Shame is so debilitating…

I’ve been listening to these ones share about guilt and shame from a perspective of someone who doesn’t know the Lord and I realize that for those who don’t know the Lord this is such a huge issue…

Even for those of us who do know the Lord until the Lord delivers us more and more and more from that spirit we are so bound up in it and are vehicles of it to others around us…

But the Lord was pleased To crush Him, putting Him to grief; If He would render Himself as a guilt offering, He will see His offspring, He will prolong His days, And the good pleasure of the Lord will prosper in His hand. (Isaiah 53:10 NASB)

Jesus rendered Himself as a guilt offering, i.e. all our guilt was laid upon Him…

He became the Scapegoat for us (Leviticus 16:10) and bore our iniquity outside the camp (Hebrews 13:12) so that we do not need to bear it any more for our sin, yes, we still bear the stigma of being scapegoats for Him as we suffer for being His in the world but this is a very different story…

Therefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people through His own blood, suffered outside the gate. So, let us go out to Him outside the camp, bearing His reproach. For here we do not have a lasting city, but we are seeking the city which is to come.  (Hebrews 13:12-14 NASB)

So we see that there is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1) but those who are not, i.e. who haven’t believed, are condemned already (John 3:18)…

We also see that Jesus has carried all our guilt so for those in Christ Jesus there is no further guilt as His Blood has sanctified us (Hebrews 10:2) but for those outside of Christ Jesus there is continual guilt for their sin…

We finally see that no one who puts their trust in Jesus will ever be put to shame (Psalm 25:3) but those who do not put their trust in Jesus will shrink away in shame before Him at His coming (1 John 2:28)…

So for those of us who know the Lord the Lord will never put condemnation, guilt or shame on us…

Never…

He will deliver us from these debilitating diseases – and these spirits do cause diseases in our bodies…

We are new creations which cannot sin and as such we have nothing to be ashamed of…

Our flesh – sin which dwells in us – is dead – Jesus became sin for us and has forgiven all our sin…

Anything which we had – Jesus took it.  Isaiah 53 is the most amazing passage.  Anything we had as a result of the fall – Jesus took it.  He healed us completely on the cross…

Completely…

Worship You Jesus – by Your stripes we were healed…

Praise You Lord…

You are worthy of all our praise – to You belongs Eternal Praise!!!

You’re Worthy…

And You are Worthy of all our praise…

Love You Lord…

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 Principal Structural Engineer, 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
