The crown of thorns was placed on Jesus’ head and His Blood was shed. We are given peace of mind and freedom from mental torment because of this redemptive work of Jesus. Sin can torment our minds with the things we have done in the past. Satan wants us to stay condemned in our thoughts so we would fall into depression but God said there is no condemnation in Christ Jesus. The Holy Spirit will convict us of sin and once we ask God to forgive us it is as though we have never sinned.
Matthew 27:29 When they had twisted a crown of thorns, they put it on His head, and a reed in His right hand. And they bowed the knee before Him and mocked Him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!”
Romans 8:1-5 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. 3 For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, 4 that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
Jesus’ Blood was shed when they pierced His hands while dividing His garments. Jesus was stripped of His worldly possessions so He could redeem our ability to prosper and succeed in God’s kingdom. Man was stripped of his glory and his created image in the likeness of God. Jesus’ hands paid the price for those who betrayed God the Father so that we may once again be about our Father’s work. God wants us to prosper and be in good health so that we may be a blessing to the nations around us.
We all have heard people say our God took our loved ones or God did not heal them. We cannot find that anywhere in the Bible. That is a lie from the pit of hell. Satan comes to kill, steal and destroy, but Jesus came so that we may have life abundantly. What a trick of Satan to kill, steal and destroy mankind and then blame it on God, the One who loves us. God tells us His people are destroyed because they do not know the truth or seek the truth. The enemy will tell lies and we do not know the truth to defend and defeat the lie. When our soul and mind know the truth of God’s word, it will be able to defend against the lies and prosper in the truth of God.
Matt 27:35a Then they crucified Him, and divided His garments, casting lots…
John 10:10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
3 John 1:2 Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.
Jesus’ feet were pierced and His blood shed so that where ever our feet trod, we may have dominion and authority. Jesus redeemed our God- given dominion and authority over the earth. God created this earth to be a place where His people would rule with authority and bring glory to His name. Mankind lost that ability and turned over the authority to Satan. Jesus came and redeemed us from the curse and put us back into right standing with our Lord and King. Those who are born again into His kingdom have authority over their enemy and have dominion over their circumstances. Jesus returned the Kingdom of God back to the earth and those who are born again and now has the ability and authority to rule and reign. So many believers are still living below their God- given dominion over their circumstances because they do not know the truth of God’s word. Jesus paid a costly price in order that we may reign with His authority.
Psalm 22:16b-18 They pierced My hands and My feet; I can count all My bones. They look and stare at Me. They divide My garments among them, And for My clothing they cast lots.
Joshua 1:3 Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you, as I said to Moses.
Jesus was pierced in His side so that from our bellies may run rivers of living waters. Jesus redeemed our joy and our heart for God. Mankind had a heart of stone but God promised to give us a new heart of flesh that we may love God and love others. Sin and the hardness of this world can make people’s hearts grow hard and cold. It is sin that is causing havoc over the nations and causing people to turn their backs on all mankind because of the pain they have suffered. Jesus came that we may have a new spirit, a new heart. We will no longer be intimidated by the world or the lies of Satan. We will trust God. Our lives are not our own they have been bought with a price so that we may be about our Father’s business in this world.
John 19:34 But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out
Ezekiel 36:26-27 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. 27 I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them.
One of the authentic witnesses of a truly born again person, is the God-given love they have for all people, lost and saved. The joy of the Lord is inside of the born again person and though hard situations and circumstances may come, they will not stay down, for joy comes in the morning. Jesus rose with healing in His wings now our hearts, soul and bodies are also, healed as we rest in His joy.
Malachi 4:2a But to you who fear My name The Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings…
