How to Walk Away When IT IS Done

posted in: Lessons | 0

How much more severely do you think a man deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God under foot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified him, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace?   Hebrews 10:29

Grace enables you to Let Go.  Our fleshly minds want to keep taking us back to the way things were.

The “proverbially”  religious cliché , “Let Go and Let God,” is widely used without proper instruction oftentimes; thereby diminishing its capacity to really impact the one receiving the message.  The world says, “If at first you don’t succeed try again.”  But they fail to tell you, if you tried your way and it did not succeed, try Jesus’ way.

Think back to the many on again/off again relationships, in the flesh,  you may have been privy to or hear about.  There is a human factor which tends to resist spiritual reality.  In truth Galatians 5:17, says the flesh resists the spirit.  They are at war.

For what the flesh wants is opposed to the Spirit, and what the Spirit wants is opposed to the flesh. They are opposed to each other, and so you do not do, what you want to do.

So, what lures one back to pick up, what has been put down?

Perhaps it is the inclination you can change the person, situation or circumstance.  But Jesus said without me you can do nothing. John 15:5

I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing  

Also when Jesus said IT is FINISHED. John 19:13   IT was whatever IT is.

If you put your hands back on the matter, you are no longer innocent.  An example is when Jesus’ accusers came before Pontius Pilate.  When Pilate saw that he could gain nothing (by trying to acquit Jesus), but rather a tumult was made(from the crowd), he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, “ I am innocent of the blood of this just person: you see to it.”  Matthew 27:24

This “washing of hands” signified him guiltless of Jesus’ execution, um crucifixion.

Therefore until you wash your hands of the matter, the IT Jesus died for cannot be applied to your situation and you are guilty of crucifying once again the Son of God, and put[ting] him to an open shame.  Hebrews 6:6


I wash my hands in innocence, and go about your altar, O LORD, Psalm 26:6

 See You in the Kingdom!
