OUR RIGHTS TO GOD'S BLESSINGS

There is a saying in the Brazilian legal world: the law does not succor those who are asleep. I can make the same statement concerning our spiritual life. If you do not know your rights in Christ - or you know them but do not claim them for your life - you will not be succored, even though you might be considered a model Christian by many. I believe this explains why so many suffer infirmities, financial privations or many other difficulties.

In this lesson we are going to study our rights to God's blessings and how we can exercise them. I pray for the Holy Spirit to strengthen and enlighten you, and help you exercise the most elementary of your rights: the abundant life that the Lord Jesus came to bring us.

When you learn to appropriate yourself of the blessings of God and take possession of your rights in Christ, you will come to the conclusion that you don?t even need to pray to receive what is rightfully yours; all you need to do is ordain, according to the five steps to victory that Jesus laid out for us (see Mark 11:22-23).

My prayer is that from this lesson on, your life will be transformed by the Lord God, and you will start exercising your rights to all of His blessings.

In Christ,
Missionary R. R. Soares

 

If we want to live a successful Christian life, we need to learn what our rights are, what belongs to us, and what the Lord Jesus did for us when He died in our stead.

The most commonly accepted belief in the Church today is that God does the miracles. This is indeed the truth. If we go a little deeper into the matter, however, we will see that God has already done His part, but ours is yet to be done. What is our part? Exercising our rights. The Lord will not do our part for us; therefore, it is very important to know what our rights are.

If you do not know what belongs to you, you will never have the courage or faith to claim it. On the other hand, when you discover through the Word of God what belongs to you, you do not need to wait any further; just give the command, ordaining in the Name of Jesus, and the power of God will accomplish that which you have asked for.

There are many people who need a true change of heart and mind. For years they have learned to fear an angry, irate God, who is just waiting for an opportunity to throw them into Hell. They serve Him through fear. The Scriptures teach us that our God is love (1 John 4.8), and that Jesus, our Lord, is gentle and humble of heart.

Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls (Matthew 11.29).

People also need to learn that to use the famous expression "if it be your will" in prayer, is to demonstrate complete ignorance of the Word of God.


IF IT WILL BE YOUR WILL

There is only one record in the Bible of a person who prayed without knowing for a certainty if the healing he was asking for was the will of God or not: the poor leper, who received a prompt response from the Lord, I will, be clean (Matthew 8.2,3).

When you tell God that the blessing you are asking for should only be granted if it is His will, you are saying that you are not sure if He really is a Father who cares for your wellbeing; it is as if you think He loves you only in word, but wants you to have cancer, tuberculosis, or live in misery. What kind of Father is your God?

The Lord Jesus gave us the following picture of the Father: Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! (Matthew 7:9-11).


OUR RIGHTS TO ENJOY GOD'S BLESSINGS

In order to clearly understand our rights to all of God's blessings, we must first learn the difference between a promise and the statement of a fact.

- Promise: something that has been promised us, a certainty. We have countless promises in the Bible that the Lord God gave us, all of which He will one day fulfill. Example: the second coming of Jesus.

- The statement of a fact: that which God states He has done for us. Example: salvation, divine healing, etc.

We will leave the promises of God, which are our lawful right, for another study, and consider the statement of certain facts. When I say that we have the right to health, a life free from sin, and prosperity, this is not based on any specific promise from God. There are several promises of God in the Bible concerning the healing of His people, principally the Jews, who were the people of God before the coming of Jesus. There are also promises related to being faithful with tithes, among others. But I am speaking about certain statements the Lord God made in the Holy Bible which guarantee our blessings.

Blessed [be] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly [places] in Christ (Ephesians 1.3)

As His divine power has given to us all things that [pertain] to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue. (2 Peter 1.3)

Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But He [was] wounded for our transgressions, [He was] bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace [was] upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed (Isaiah 53.4,5 )

Here we see very clearly that all the blessings we need or ever will need have already been granted to us. Now, when someone tells you that a certain possession of his now belongs to you, you then have the right to claim it as your own. This is exactly how it works with the blessings of the Lord - whether it be healing, forgiveness, prosperity, or any other blessing - we should claim them as our own, for they have been given to us.

The Lord spoke through the prophet Isaiah: By His stripes we are healed. From God's standpoint, we have already been healed. He considers the work of Christ a consummated fact. Since He bore our infirmities, we no longer have to bear them. Everything has been done for us. We therefore have a legal right to be free from sickness. The same goes for prosperity and other blessings. The Word tells us that Jesus was made a curse in our stead, so that we might have access to the blessings of Abraham: Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, Cursed [is] everyone who hangs on a tree), that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. (Galatians 3.13,14 )


HOW TO EXERCISE THESE RIGHTS

An unclaimed right is a non-existent right. If you read these verses and say you believe them, but neither put them into practice, nor demand that they be fulfilled, you are telling God that you do not have faith in Him.

To exercise your rights is to take an attitude. If God has declared that we have been healed by Jesus? stripes, then it is a fact and should become real in our lives.

To exercise your rights is to tell the devil that his bondage over your life has ended, and from now on you will not allow him to attack or destroy you. There can be no more suffering in your life.


EXERCISE YOUR RIGHTS

Tell the devil that you will no longer accept his attacks, for you have known the Truth, and the Truth is setting you completely free. Tell him that you are not even going to ask God to heal you or give you any other blessing, because He has already given you everything. Address the devil and rebuke him, commanding him and any suffering he has placed in your life to leave you forever in the Name of Jesus.

Confess that you have already been healed and set free from all the curses of sin by the death of Christ Jesus on the cross.


YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TO PRAY

To be healed you don't have to fast and pray, or ask everybody to pray for you all the time. Whenever the devil afflicts you with some evil, all you have to do is tell him you will not accept it and ordain that no evil can touch your life. The Holy Spirit tells us: Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you (James 4.7).

To exercise your rights is to take possession of what the Word of God declares Jesus did for us. The Scriptures say that He suffered our diseases and infirmities in His own body. You must therefore totally refuse to bear what Jesus has already borne in your place. The Word says He was made a curse in our place so we might be freed from the curse of the Law. Do not allow the enemy to bring any curse over your life. You are free!

Believe what the Lord declares and in the Name of Jesus immediately order the devil and all that belongs to him to leave your life completely. Exercise your right to enjoy all the blessings the Lord bought for you, having loved you so much as to die on the cross and be made a curse in your place.

You must understand that Jesus suffered all your infirmities and your curses. You do not have to suffer them any longer. The Word of God affirms that He was bruised so that we might be healed: Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise Him; He has put [Him] to grief (Isaiah 53:10).
