Jesus told this man that he must be separated from his sin, or worse things will happen to him. “She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more” (John 8:11). Here was a woman caught in adultery, that could have gone to hell if the mob had stoned her according to Moses’ Law, but she found forgiveness and pardon in Christ Jesus. Yet, Christ told her to be separated from her sins. “Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame” (1 Corinthians 15:34). After we are saved and forgiven, we must wake up to righteousness and sin no more. We become more careful not to allow sin in our lives; that is the evidence of real salvation, transformation and the touch of the Lord in our lives. We become angry at the sins of the past and the people that made us to fall into those sins (2 Corinthians 7:11).
- Shielding from Sin – Psalms 19:13; 119:113; Romans 6:12-14; 1 Peter 1:5
Christ shields you that you don’t continue in your sins. You pray to be protected and preserved from those sins, so that you will not go back to them anymore. “Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression” (Psalms 19:13). You want to remain clean and innocent from your sins. “Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me” (Psalms 119:133). He will shield and protect you from evil. Let not sin reign in your mortal bodies (Romans 6:12). The sins of the past are gone forever; let your life be protected by the grace of the Lord and the consciousness of the presence of Christ. Yield every member of your body to God. “For sin shall not have dominion over you…” (Romans 6:14). You are kept, preserved, protected and shielded by the power of God (1 Peter 1:5).
POINT 3. FREEDOM FROM ALL SICKNESS BY CHRIST’S AUTHORITY
Christ Jesus has the power to forgive, heal, deliver and set free. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. That is why you will not go back home empty handed. Freedom is coming to you and will be established in your life in Jesus Name. “And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, We never saw it on this fashion” (Mark 2:12). This year, the Lord will do spectacular things in your life that you will say that you never saw it on this fashion. This year will be glorious and wonderful for you.
- The Cure for His Sickness – Luke 4:32,36; Acts 10:38
Christ’s word will come forth with power to cure all your sicknesses. “And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying, What a word is this! for with authority and power he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out” (Luke 4:36). You will not carry any property of Satan back home because God anointed Jesus with the Holy Ghost and with power to do good and heal all that are oppressed of the devil, (Acts 10:38), and He has not changed. He will answer your prayer
- The Command of our Saviour – Mark 2:11-12,3; Luke 9:23; Ephesians 6:13-17; 2 Thessalonians 3:8-9
“I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house. And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, We never saw it on this fashion.” (Mark 2:11-12). When he was sick, paralyzed, incapacitated, impotent, helpless, hopeless, men showed mercy and carried him, but now Jesus had healed him, and commanded him to take his bed. Those four men were still there, and the man did not call on them to help him after the healing to carry his bed. He was no longer hopeless and helpless; he was healed and should not be a parasite. You are no more a paralytic, begin a new series of actions; demonstrate your healing, do it yourself! A parasite is somebody always leaning on and looking to others for help.
