If we don’t behold the image of the Father whose nature we have at new birth, and all we do is behold the image of the old fallen dead man, the best we can become is ‘living dead’ .
– Dr Val
The principle is simple…
WHAT YOU BEHOLD CONSISTENTLY, YOU BECOME!
A Sinner does not become Righteous by beholding Sin …
A Sinner becomes Righteous by seeing Sin crucified on the Cross, and Righteousness birthed in the Resurrection !
The New Creation is not just Righteous..
The New Creation is Righteousness!
If the Sinner whose nature is Sin, is made Righteousness, not by beholding Sin, but by seeing Sin crucified…
How then do we think that the New Creation is made ‘More Righteous’ by taking him through sustained training on all kinds of Sin and demonic oppression?!
THE BEST YOU CAN BE , IS A REFLECTION OF THAT WHICH YOU CONSISTENTLY BEHOLD.
Many Believers are struggling with Sin because all they have been shown is the Sin Nature.
Studying sin and all kinds of sexual immorality and caliber of sin, will not make the Believer more ‘Righteous’..
Rather, it will make him begin to reflect what he is beholding.
Most Believers have almost no understanding of their new nature as Righteousness.
Many Believers are Specialists in SIN, and Ignorant in RIGHTEOUSNESS..
Just as many Believers have PhD in DEMONOLOGY and don’t even Have a Nursery School Certificate in ZOE-OLOGY (Knowledge of THE GOD LIFE)!
A Christian who finds himself struggling with persistent sin, or always being demonically oppressed, does not need ‘Continuous Deliverance’..
What he needs is to be consistently caused to Behold the nature of God which is his new nature.
If you are a Believer and have gone through deliverance 7 times, or even 70 times 7, yet all the while beholding the Nature of the fallen man instead of the Righteousness of God which we have become in Christ, you will keep falling back to the level of your ‘Beholding’!
You don’t need more deliverance..
You need Knowledge of your nature as the Righteousness of God!
Keep looking.. Keep hearing… Keep Saying it… Keep thinking and meditating on it.
That’s how we ‘BEHOLD’.
We have spent too much time teaching ‘Generational Curses’;
Its about time we start looking into ‘Generational Blessings’!
WHAT ARE YOU BEHOLDING?!
But we all, with open face BEHOLDING as in a glass THE GLORY of the Lord, ARE CHANGED INTO THE SAME IMAGE from glory to glory, even as BY THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD.
