Healing and Restoration leads you to fulfillment!

Healing and Restoration leads you to fulfillment and freedom in Christ!

By Abraham Israel






1. Jesus restores our soul because He is our good shepherd (Ps 23:1, 3; John 10:14). A shepherd is the one who leads, guides, teaches, provides, binds up the wounds, comforts and protects the one who is following him. It is in his nature to even go after the lost and misguided sheep’s. All these are part of the restorative nature of a shepherd. To restore means to make something return to its former optimal level or condition. Because of the fallen state of this planet earth and Satan’s increased activity of stealing, killing and destroying the good things of God, we need daily restoration for our soul. As a faithful shepherd Jesus restores our soul as we seek Him daily. When Jesus restores our soul by leading us beside still waters, our soul will returns to its stillness even as we start appropriating His peace in our soul (Isaiah 26:3;Psalm 23:2; Phil 4:6-7).

2. Always salvation is accompanied by a supernatural joy and we need to live perpetually in it, thus indicating our citizenship in the kingdom (Rom 14:17). When you lose your joy of salvation due to your fleshly indulgence [sinful inclination of your soul], immediately repent and ask the Lord to restore your joy of salvation, He will do it (Ps 51:12). We need to live daily with a heart attitude of repentance [i.e. turning towards God to receive His mercies and to receive His overcoming power to shun from all our weaknesses and failings in the future].

3. You need to forgive your friends who have hurt, wounded, and have betrayed you at the time you needed them the most, if you do not forgive them, this is when a strong spirit of unforgiveness can creep in to you against these people whom you have trusted in the past. Because of unforgiveness you would have given an open door entry to Satan and his demons who will easily get in to you and will rightfully control you. Our Heavenly Father will also be angry and will take his hand of protection until you will realize your foolishness and revert back to forgive them (Eph 4:26-27; Matt 18:33-35). Those to whom you will not forgive their debts [i.e. their unfaithfulness, betrayal and back stabbing] will become your debtors. These debtors should be first forgiven before you enter in to the Heavenly Father’s presence to ask for the restoration of your soul by the cleansing blood of Jesus. Why should you forgive your debtors [i.e. people who have knowingly wronged and betrayed us]? Because God in Christ has once for all forgiven your past, present and future sins (Eph 4:32). You may ask, If God has already forgiven all my sins, why I need to go again to Him for forgiveness? The answer is you do not go to get a literal forgiveness but more of a cleansing for protection from all demons by being covered by the blood of Jesus (1 John 1:3-7). This is the restorative part of your salvation which is your inheritance in Christ Jesus. So only Jesus taught the disciples to pray in this pattern to Our Father in Heaven, “…And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.” (Matt 6:12). We need to live daily with a heart of forgiveness. When you live your life by choosing to forgive you debtors unconditionally daily because of seeing what God has done for you in Christ, then the Lord will restore to you double of what you have lost during your crisis (Job 42:10). When you forgive these people their follies, then the Lord will bless your latter days more than your beginning [i.e. before you encountered these false accusations, betrayal….etc from others who have knowingly or unknowingly wronged you] (Job 42:12).

4. When you are glad and rejoice in the Lord, the Lord will restore to you the y
ears that you have lost without being fruitful (Joel 2:23, 25). Because of His tangible blessings over your life, you will be satisfied and will praise the name of the Lord your God (Joel 2:26). So, rejoice in the Lord always, pray continuously and in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you (2 Thess 5:16-18). We should choose to rejoice daily in the Lord. To rejoice in the Lord means ‘to again release the joy which is already is in your spirit man inside you’. God has kept the spirit man in perfect connection with the Lord who is the Spirit now (1 Cor 6:17; 2 Cor 3:17). Thus you have the choice to release that joy in your soul by commanding your soul to bless the Lord and praise the Lord at all times (Ps 50: 23; 103:1-2; 145:1-2; 146:1-2; 147:1). In other words you can choose to be joyful at all times irrespective of the circumstances that you are in or going through (Acts 16:22-25). When you command your soul to align with your spirit by praising and blessing the Lord, then you will experience the joy and goodness of the Lord in your soul (Ps 63:2-5; 147:1; 149:5-6; 150:6; 104:33; 105:3).

5. When God restores you from your trespasses or sinful habits in to that higher realm of victory through your spiritual walk in the power of the Spirit, you then help others who are going though such bondages by witnessing gently to them what God has done and is doing in your life. God will bless you more for doing it and will restore abundance in your life as you restore others back in to a meaningful relationship with God (Gal 5:16; 6:1, 9-10). Never be deceived in to thinking that you are immune from any sin without His grace (Gal 6:3)! Rather you who are spiritual restore the weak in a spirit of gentleness daily by using the grace of God present in your life. This will not only bring healing and fulfillment in your life, but also in the other person’s life which has been overtaken by trespasses.Praise the Lord!

About

apostolicrevelation.info is one of the world's fast growing popular Bible study websites, attracting thousands of visitors daily from all around the world. We follow a unique revelatory apostolic seer writing from the Scripture with Rapture taking place any time after Mid-Point but before Great Tribulation begins through Antichrist, we use dispensational interpretation of Scripture and believe the Bible teaches salvation by grace through faith alone, and the eternal security of believers. We will focus mainly on apostolic teaching that will edify, equip and empower the saints to reach their full potential in Christ Jesus. Our goal is the edification, evangelism and empowerment of the last day Church that the Lord Jesus Christ is raising up before His triumphant return!
