Calvary is a place of triumph and victory. What Jesus accomplished on the Cross of Calvary is the culmination of God’s Divine plan to redeem mankind from sin and death. It is here that we find the central point of new life. Jesus said “Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.” [St John 12:24] Jesus was that seed that died and brought forth many into the Kingdom of God.See Isaiah 53:10-11 The sacrifice for the sins of all mankind was provided for and completed by Jesus Christ on the Cross of Calvary. This was and is redemptions plan. In Galatians 3:13 we read; “Christ hath [ that means has already] redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, cursed is everyone that hangeth on a tree.” Our redemption that Christ paid for is complete. It is a finished work. If you have been born-again then you are God’s redeemed child. At the Cross, Jesus paid the full price for the penalty of man’s sins and He also forever broke the grip of sin over mankind. Jesus Christ is the double cure for the double curse. This is our message at Acts 26:18 Prayer Chapel Fellowship. Nothing needs to be added to what Jesus Christ has done for us at Calvary. We, as belevers, can walk in freedom from the grip of sin in our daily lives as well as knowing that our penalty of sin has been paid by Jesus Christ upon the Cross. If we are “In Him” then we don’t have to try to be victorious, we ARE victorious because He is. Refer in your reading to Romans Ch.6 In order for us to live out this great redemption reality, our faith must be properly placed in what Jesus has done for us at the Cross. Remember this, Do Not Make A Christ Out Of Your Faith. But rather place your faith in Christ. Look at this Scripture: ” Who hath [has already] delievered us from the power of darkness, and hath [has already] translated us into the Kingdom of His dear Son: In Whom we have redemption through His Blood, even the forgiveness of sins” [Col 1:13-14] This was and is a great breakthrough for mankind. It was all done for us by Jesus Christ on the Cross. The message of the true church is the message of the Cross. Jesus broke us out; ” delievered us from the powers of darkness” And Jesus broke us through ” hath translated us into the Kingdom of His dear Son”. Praise the Lord. This is our breakthrough into Divine favor and newness of life. Our redemption is more than a mere promise, it is a settled fact. When we place our faith in the finished work of Christ upon the Cross, the Holy Spirit then brings to pass in us what Christ has already done for us.
