When All Was Lost He Gave All!

Today I am going to share what I read in my email  from Kenneth Copeland Ministries.com today. I hope this blesses you as it did myself.

But God’s free gift is not at all to be compared to the trespass…For if many died through one man’s falling away–his lapse, his offense–much more profusely did God’s grace and the free gift [that comes] through…Jesus Christ, abound and overflow to and for [the benefit of] many.

Romans 5:15

“If you ever need someone to tell you how to turn things around, go to God. He’s an expert on the subject. He’s suffered more losses than anyone who’s ever lived.

Just think about it. He lost Lucifer, His top-ranked, most anointed angel. And He lost at least a third of His other angels as well when Lucifer fell. Then He lost the man and woman He had created; and because He’d given them dominion over the earth, when He lost them, He lost it too. Any way you figure it, that’s a lot of real estate down the drain!

Yet, in spite of all that, God is no loser. He’s the greatest winner of all time. Do you know why? Because He knows how to turn the losses around. He knows how to use the law of giving and receiving to transform losses into gains.

“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over” (Luke 6:38).

Isn’t that staggering? He had every option that exists to choose from to redeem the things He’d lost. He had all wisdom and all power available to Him. Out of all that, the law of giving is what He chose to use.

He gave the most irreplaceable thing He had: His only Son. Then He backed that gift with His own faith. And when the law of giving and receiving had done its work, the Almighty Father God received not only His first begotten Son, but millions of other sons as well.

Don’t despair over your losses. Redeem them the same way God redeemed His. Give and put the most powerful principle in the universe to work for you.”

WHO DO YOU SAY I AM?

13 Now when Jesus went into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, Who do people say that the Son of Man is?
14 And they answered, Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.

 Matthew 16:13-14 (AMP)

Notice how the world sees Jesus?  “Some say John the Baptist”…, because He and His disciples where seen baptizing. (John 3:26,John 4:1)  Some say Elijah”…, because of the miracles (signs) He did. (John 2:11, John 2:23-25)…Jeremiah or one of the prophets“…, because of the way He taught. (Matthew chapters 5,6,7). Even in pictures today when you see Jesus, He looks sad, stoned or glowing!

15 He said to them, But who do you [yourselves] say that I am?                                                                     Matthew 16:15 (AMP)

When it comes to YOU, who do YOU say He (Jesus) is?

Does the way you are acting confirm what you believe concerning Jesus?

16 Simon Peter replied, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.
17 Then Jesus answered him, Blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are you, Simon Bar-Jonah. For flesh and blood [men] have not revealed this to you, but My Father Who is in heaven.
                                                                                                                                                                                              

Matthew 16:16-17 (AMP)

* “Knowing” Jesus through relationship instead of “knowing about” Jesus ,as the world does, brings blessings on/in your life! The blessing is I AM is all you need!

1 GOD IS our Refuge and Strength [mighty and impenetrable to temptation], a very present and well-proved help in trouble. 

Psalm 46:1 (AMP)


14 Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].
15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him and show him My salvation.

 Psalm 91:14-16 (AMP)

*To “know” Jesus is to accept Him as your Lord and savior. (John 3:16, Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23, Romans 10:9-10) Take some time today to think about who Jesus really is to you. Share your thoughts with Him and enjoy knowing Him!

Selah (Pause And Think About It)

His love is truly amazing !!

16 For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.


17 For God did not send the Son into the world in order to judge (to reject, to condemn, to pass sentence on) the world, but that the world might find salvation and be made safe and sound through Him.

John 3:16-17 (AMP)

I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS

For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].

Eph 2:10 (AMP)

Before God said, “Light be”,and there was.

Before He separated the dry land from the sea.

Before He set the sun and the moon in the sky, He was there thinking of you.

Before the trees bearing fruit and seed, before the birds,animals and fish of the seas.

He was there planing for you.

Before He created man in His image, He was there imagining life with you.

HE IS

  • The promised Seed to the fallen Genesis 3:15
  • The rainbow after the rain Genesis 9:17
  • The Deliverer from the house of bondage Deuteronomy 5:6
  • The divider of the sea Exodus 14:21
  • The streams in the desert Isaiah 32:1-2
  • The bread from heaven John 6:33
  • The cloud that covers by day, the pillar of fire by night Exodus 13:21-22
  • The Word that became flesh John 1:14
  • The light brightly shining John 1:1-4,9-10

HE CAME

  • A babe born in a manger Luke 2:7
  •  Foretold by one preparing His way  John 1:6

HE LIVED

  • A life I can follow Luke 9:23
  • As a Shepherd He helps us find our way John 10:14,27-28

HE DIED

  • So we could live John 3:14-18

HE LIVES

  • So we can be free to live with Him eternally Romans 6:22-23

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. 18 He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

John 3:16-18 (NKJV)

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today and forever!
