As I was praying in the Spirit about today’s post, I saw with my spiritual eye, the lot in my neighborhood and I heard with my spiritual ear, the word cleared. So, it is official, this is a series. This is the second posting in the series, Building the House: Cleared.
This lot began very overgrown with trees, shrubs, and grasses. With the use of heavy equipment and manpower, the overgrowth was removed and trashed or salvaged. Only the things that were declared useful to the owners, architects, and builders were left. The clearing made way for the next steps of preparing the land for the foundation and the building of the dream house.
Although this is not Easter, I feel that someone needs a resurrection message. Someone needs to know today what Jesus’ sacrifice did to resurrect their dead situation and clear them.
Jesus’ death on the cross freed you, cleared you from the bondage of sin. You are cleared of the accusations of satan, who accused you day and night before God. You are cleared from the condemnation he brings. What this cleared means is that it is no longer a factor, can no longer be held against you. The sins of your past are cleared. The sins of the present are cleared. The sins of your future are cleared. They were nailed to the cross and you have been declared useful by the heavenly Father, the great Architect of the universe.
You are cleared and forgiven. You are cleared of shame, hurt, and humiliation. You are cleared of embarrassment, disgrace, and dishonor. All of it was nailed to the cross. The charges against you were nailed to the cross, cancelled and cleared. The records were erased and cleared, the debt was wiped out, destroyed, and deleted. It is no longer there!
When Jesus was on the cross, He said, It is finished. It is done, it is cleared. The way was made clear to the Father. You can boldly go to the throne and find grace to help in time of need. Your path was cleared to reveal the new life He has planned for you, a life of triumph, a life of victory, a life of peace. Cleared so you can enjoy the abundant life, to the full, till it overflows. Cleared so that you can know the love of Jesus. Cleared to know the height, depth, and width of His love for you. Cleared to know Him in all His fulness and the power of His Resurrection. Cleared so you may know that your body, your house is the dwelling place of the Holy Spirit. You are not your own. You were bought with a price, the blood of Jesus. You must honor God.
