Established in Redemption

By Taffi Dollar

SUMMARY

When Adam and Eve sinned, their original relationship with God and each other changed. The result was division and hostility. Jesus had to physically come to earth to undo the damage done and put mankind back into a position where people were right with God. In order to restore everything back to God’s original plan, Jesus actually had to become the ransom for sin for us. He undid what the enemy came to do, so that we could be free from guilt, have a relationship with God, and receive the Holy Spirit. The wall between humanity and God was torn down, and man would no longer have to experience His wrath. In short, Jesus redeemed us so that we could fulfill the Father’s dream. Now that we have been established in redemption and delivered from spiritual darkness, we can walk in light and receive everything that Jesus made available to us.

The Dispensation of Grace

By Creflo Dollar

SUMMARY

A dispensation is a divine order for a particular age, and the Bible is divided up into three dispensations. The first two were agreements between God, Adam, and Eve, and between God and Moses. Both were relevant for that particular age, but they are now expired. The third is the current dispensation of grace. Most Christians are unaware of these divisions, and are therefore still trying to live according to the Mosaic laws administered by the high priests. If we make this mistake, we remain sin-conscious because we are still trying to make relevant the requirements of a dispensation that is no longer valid. The law has been replaced by God’s grace, which is available to us right now.

Overcoming Spiritual Blindness

By Creflo Dollar

SUMMARY

Spiritual blindness is the greatest bondage there is. Spiritually blind people may have perfect physical vision, but they cannot see all that God has made available to them through His grace. On a global perspective, the biggest problem the church faces today is blindness to what Jesus Christ has done. This sightless condition affects how we live, because if we are unaware of what He did for us two thousand years ago, we will needlessly work hard for things we already have. Paul strongly preached the Gospel of Grace, and it is important to be able to distinguish between grace and religion if we are to see any results in our lives. The Law of Moses has ended, and it has been replaced by the covenant of grace. What we believe and how we believe it will govern our conscience.

Obedience to the Law vs. Obedience to the Faith

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

Obedience to God is indeed important, but there is a distinction between obedience to the Law of Moses and obedience to the faith. Under the law, the people’s obedience was required, first, before God could bless them. After Jesus went to the cross, the only requirement to inherit the promises of God was belief, independent of our behavior or self-effort. Under the law, people were holy because of their obedience; under grace, we are holy because of Jesus’ obedience. Under grace, we cannot take credit for any of the good things that happen in our lives. We are made righteous not through anything we do, but only through our belief in Jesus’ faithfulness. Under the covenant of grace, we bear the fruit of what He has already done.

Spiritual Blindness - Part 3

By Creflo Dollar

Being born again but staying spiritually blind is a tragedy. When we accept Jesus as our personal Lord and Savior, yet remain unaware of what He has done for us, we will not understand the impact He can have on our lives. In Christ, there is no gender distinction. We are already healed and delivered, and when we pray, we do not have to beg Him to do something for us He has already done; but if we do not understand this, we will not benefit from it. There are people all over the world who have been saved but are still blind to what Jesus has accomplished. This is why the teaching of grace is so important. God’s unmerited favor has everything to do with us being able to see on a spiritual level.

No More Limits Part 3

By Taffi Dollar

Summary

We have limited God for a long time in many areas of our lives. There are most likely times when we are not even aware that we have been limiting him through our beliefs and attitudes. If we are not careful, this will put limitations on what God wants to do in our lives. But as believers, we are learning to live by faith through grace. When we understand how God’s plan operates, we can begin to take those limits off. God wants prosperity to manifest in every area that concerns us, and the Scriptures teach us that we can have abundant lives that are full to the overflowing.  If we patiently stand on his word, we will see manifestations begin to take place like never before.
