LED BY RED

In order to grow spiritually, in order to be all that God purposed you to be, in order to live life to its fullest, one excellent technique is to read, study, and meditate on those words written in RED, those words spoken by Jesus; i.e. be LED BY RED.

The Promises of Jesus

Acts 10:38 (NKJV)

How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.

And God is with you – tonight, tomorrow, and forever

The Book of Matthew

Matthew 10:1 (NKJV)

And when He had called His twelve disciples to Him, He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease.

1 John 4:4 (NKJV)

You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

The Holy Spirit-filled believer has been given power over demons

Matthew 10:5 – 8 (NKJV)

These twelve Jesus sent out and commanded them, saying: “Do not go into the way of the Gentiles, and do not enter a city of the Samaritans. But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.”

The true believer has unlimited authority over demons in the name of Jesus.

John 14:16 & 17 (NKJV)

“And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever – the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.”

Know who your Father is – Know who your Savior is – Know who your Helper is

The Book of Mark

Mark 3:14 & 15 (NKJV)

Then He appointed twelve, that they might be with Him and that He might send them out to preach, and to have power to heal sicknesses and to cast out demons.

Jesus gave His disciples the authority to preach, teach, heal, and deliver

Mark 6:12 & 13 (NKJV)

So they went out and preached that people should repent. And they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick, and healed them.

And that authority has never been rescinded – that very same authority is available to you tonight, tomorrow, and forever

John 14:12 (NKJV)

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.”

Book of Luke

Luke 9:1 & 2 (NKJV)

Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. He sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.

We should wake each morning fully expecting to be both the recipient and the instrument of God’s supernatural power

Luke 9:6 (NKJV)

So they departed and went through the towns, preaching the gospel and healing everywhere.

1John 5:4 & 5 (NKJV)

For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world – our faith. Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God!

As born again Spirit- filled believers in Jesus Christ we are empowered and operate under His authority to defeat any and all things that come against us from this world

Luke 10:9 (NKJV)

“And heal the sick there and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’”

Isaiah 54:11 (NKJV)

“No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is from Me,” says the LORD.

The power and authority of Jesus in the old testament – always was, always is, and always will be

Luke 10:17 – 20 (NKJV)

Then the seventy returned with joy saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name.” And He said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.”

We will not perish – We will live forever in His presence

John 3:16

THIS IS MY BIBLE

This is my Bible, I am what it says I am - chosen by God, righteous in His sight, a joint heir with Jesus to God’s Kingdom, loved, forgiven, and saved by grace; I can have what it says I can have – His peace, His joy, and His faith; and I can do what it says I can do – all things in His strength and all things in my belief. This is my Bible, it is the truth, and daily it will be my thoughts and my words. Amen.
