Overcoming Sin-Consciousness

By Creflo Dollar

SUMMARY

When we get born again yet remain spiritually blind, we find ourselves putting up with things that we do not have to tolerate because of what Jesus did. Renewing our minds according to the Gospel of Grace frees us through the knowledge of Jesus Christ, and we learn things of which the world is unaware. Learning to think differently changes our thought patterns so that we are no longer bound by the Law of Moses. The enemy does not want this change to happen, and he tries to stop it by attacking our minds. If Satan can affect our consciousness, then he can impact our spiritual sight. Believers living under grace are no longer sinners, because their old sinful natures are gone. We can overcome the enemy’s attempts to remind us of sin by consciously being aware of life under God’s grace.

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.

Spiritual Blindness - Part 2

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

One of the worst things we can do as Christians is to get born again but remain spiritually blind to what Jesus has already made available through His death and resurrection. He did this not because we deserve it, but because of His unmerited favor toward us. When He called us out of the darkness into the light, we were actually called out of sin into salvation, but we will not see this until we understand it spiritually. This is an important point we must fully grasp if we are to make progress in life. When we live our lives under the Law of Moses, we are in captivity. In the New Testament, when Jesus talked about the recovery of sight to the blind and the preaching of liberty to the prisoners, He meant that He had come to open blind eyes to the captivity of the law. Until we come to understand the Gospel of Grace, we will be saved but still blind.

Spiritual Blindness

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

If we were to identify the number one enemy in every Christian’s life, it would be spiritual blindness to what Christ has done for us. This type of darkness is the foundational issue behind every problem in our lives. It is the greatest bondage a born-again believer can face.  Being spiritually blind to the gospel of Grace can be compared to a physically blind person standing in a bright light but unable to see it. If we are spiritually blind, we will be subject to our natural senses to guide us through life. We will be controlled by our emotions, and our doubts and fears will muffle the voice of the Holy Spirit. Grace is the antidote for this blindness.
