Hebrews 1:1-4 (NKJV)
God, who at
various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by
the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He
has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds;
who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His
person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had
by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on
high, having become so much better than the angels, as He has by
inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
see from the scripture above that God had once led his people by
prophets, dreams and visions. This was in the time of the old covenant,
a time when only the priest had the Spirit of God in a measure because
only through His Spirit does God communicate to man.
However, we are no longer functioning under the Old Testament covenant.
By the death and sacrifice of Jesus, we are now in the New Testament and
under this new covenant, God is no longer leading his children by
prophets and dreams, but by his Son Jesus who gives us the Holy Spirit
without measure. So rejoice, do not be fooled or misled. If you have
received Jesus into your life as your Lord and Savior, then you have the
Spirit of God without measure by which God will lead and direct you in
every area of your life.
God is reaching out to you today by His Spirit, and all He is speaking
to you is your victory in Christ Jesus. He is reminding you of how by
Christ's death, you have gained the victory over sin, sickness, disease
and every oppression of Satan. Reject any prophecy that brings fear and
condemnation; it is not of God but a lie of the enemy.
PRAYER FOCUS: Father, I thank You for the gift of Your Son
Jesus. I thank You because by His sacrifice on the cross, I now have
unlimited access of being led by Your Spirit. Amen
