Kingdom of HeavenMonday I asked if you could feel God's dissatisfaction.

Today, I’m compelled to press this further.

When we sulk about, meditating on our unworthiness, it is a disgrace to His wonderful grace.

This idea that the Father is not satisfied with us actually tramples under foot the blood of Christ, treating it as though it had no power to pay our debt nor give us His righteousness. I’ll say it again. It’s a disgrace to grace. It’s a lie from hell. It has held the Church back far too long.

Our enemy painted this image we have in our head of a God who is angry with His children. He mocks the words of Jesus, the promises of God, and the teaching of the apostles. He employs the same tactics he plied in the garden.

Hath God said?

It is finished! - John 19:30 NASB

Hath God said?

Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will be careful to observe My ordinances. - Ezekiel 36:25-27 NASB

Hath God said?

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. - 2 Corinthians 5:17 NASB

Hath God said?

God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation. - 2 Corinthians 5:19 NASB

Hath God said?

and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. - Revelation 1:5-6 NKJV

What rises up in me is a resounding,

Thus saith the Lord!

Deal with it satan.

And deal with it saint - you are pleasing in His eyes. [Tweet This] It’s not of your doing, The blood of Christ has made you so. He, the Lord God Almighty, will never again be dissatisfied with you. You are His beloved child.

Hallelujah!

[I need to say that again]

Hallelujah!
