Special Greetings to you in the Name of our LORD and savior, Jesus Christ.
I am sure you were extremely blessed last week during SHILOH 2016. Among other things, I believe we all now have a clear understanding of our exemption rights and privileges in redemption but it is very concerning that many Christians do not still live in the reality of the covenant of exemption; even though Christ has paid the price in full for us.
This week, I’ll like to take a look at a mindset that I believe will enable every believer to walk in the reality of our exemption rights, I call it the “ EXEMPTION MENTALITY”.
Proverbs 23:7 “ . . . For as he thinks in his heart, so is he…” – KJV
The scripture above unveils the truth that destiny in the kingdom answers largely to our thought pattern. This is to say that if for instance you have an “inclusive” mentality, then you are certain to suffer what everyone else is suffering but when you think differently and possess a mindset of exemption from evil, then that is guaranteed to become your reality.
You may join in making corporate positive declarations but if your mentality does not align with your confession, it will not be a reality because you cannot live above the way you think. Be like Joshua and Caleb who had a different mentality from the others whose feeling of inferiority cost them the promised land. (Numbers 13:33/ 14:8-9).
Your Case is indeed different because of the finished work of Jesus at the cross of Calvary but you need to have this mentality if you must experience the reality of exemption.
Welcome to your new season.
God BLESS you
…and Let the Redeemed of the Lord say So!
