Welcome to this weekend in tight contact with the feeling you are held prisoner tear past God's power can transform any knife. Learn more theories on how the truth consecutively continue as the result held true set you free. And if you turn your Bible to Ephesians chapter 1 and if you look in the chapter of several things. It was beginning if you will in chapter 1 in verse seven in him present tense. We have redemption that is, he paid the price at the cross to redeem us the bios out of a life of sin and settles on the road giving is a new life redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our sins. That is my watchlist that is all of our sins have been atone for sacrifice for paid for 2000 years ago. So all of our forgiveness is passed since he settled the issue. 2000 years ago about your forgiveness all of your confession may be present tense all of your forgiveness was already provided 2000 years ago the cross when you take one step away from the cross, you're in trouble.

Everything is centered around the cross. Everything is attached to it all about hope and all of our help comes across so he says we are the living process saws of redemption and forgiveness somewhat. You moved to verse three of chapter 1 of Ephesians and its began with our possessions in Christ, and yet relate this to we talking about the feelings the battle we have with insecurity into heritage and adequacy to meet life situations. Listen to what he says in Ephesians chapter 1 verse three 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, give it. Look at that word blessed that word in the Greek is made up of two words which means to speak good about something, and in this one verse.

There is a bless her the blast and the blessing look at this Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, that is raised to him who listen I watch this has blessed. That is the same word but in the in the areas tense which means in the past God did something for you and me. Listen Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heaven is in Christ Jesus. Know what is it me, but I know what we're talking about our possessions, all based on our relationship with Jesus Christ which he and that the cross which became a living reality in your life the moment you accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior want to see me when he says he has blessed us blessed us in the past tense.

One time blessed us in the Lord Jesus Christ. It means simply this, that before you were ever born, God Almighty deposited to your account in heaven. Listen to this now every single blessing that will all will allow, and that God's omnipotence can provided you get that is what God is saying to you and to me about us that God Almighty in his love.

Because of the price Jesus Christ part of the cross which was his life on the basis of that, not on the basis of good, you are not in the base is very good. You promise to be not on the basis of what you've done, not on any basis of anything within you within me. There is no good thing on the basis of the shed blood of Jesus Christ God Almighty could do this and still be God still be just still be righteous deposited to the account of those who came into this world as sinners bent away from God deposit to your account and my account every single thing we would ever need.

As long as we live on the face of this earth. Every single thing that law will allow, and his omnipotence will provide and if that be true, and it is true tell me my dear friend. Can you name one single legitimate reason for ever feeling in adequate for ever feeling incapable of facing any situation in life.

With that promise dedicated and committed to you as a child of God, because you see my friend.

There is not one single thing that you could possibly think of. Our feelings of inadequacy are straight from the devil.

We are in adequate within ourselves. But we are not in adequate in him.

How could you ever feel worthless when God Almighty loves you enough before you ever born to deposit to your account every single thing you will ever need.

As long as you live on the face of this or there are no legitimate reasons and every time that feeling comes, the amount in your heart that is Satan's lies straight out of jail when he says every spiritual blessing in heavenly places in Christ, about us as a weatherman while not having such a hard time missing.

The Bible says that he provides all of our need some time.

You and I need to get in the family. Sometimes God needs to do what prune us and send those in sift doesn't cut us back to the what, because every good orchard draw every Grove man knows that if he wants the best food for next year. He's got to prune the dead limbs, those who sprouts would begin to soak up the saffron so he must bring the branches.

When God begins to prune your life. Use their wealth whereas God's blessing was God doing in my leg. I thought I had every spiritual blessing in the heaven is in Christ Jesus you do but remember this, that he who is your keeper. He who is your God.

He whose law has allowed and he whose power has provided knows exactly what you and I need exactly when we needed it is all spiritual blessings in heavenly is in Christ Jesus and God is the one on who gives the blessing, he says, you and I listen. We're not going to possess it. He says we already have every single need we will ever experience in life already met in the heaven is in Christ, and I've been saying some things over and over and over and over and over again. I'm saying you again. The biggest battle of your life is the battle to believe what God says versus what the devil says so. He says is what we have now think about this.

Think about you creeping and crawling up the gun single Lord old dear Lord, you moaning you groaning you griping you complain, listen, why go to a loving heavenly father who says in his word that all his level provided provided all his supernatural unlimited omnipotence will create for you. He has already done that.

Willing to give to you what you need when you need it and you come creeping up and crawling up and crying to God as a beggar when he says come as a child of God believing and expecting and anticipating and receiving the blessings of God.

There's no room for the feelings the scathing binding feelings of inadequacy and inferiority and insecurity. When we have a God who has so committed himself as he has in chapter 1 verse three that's only part of it. If you look in the same chapter and go down if you will to verse 11, he says in verse 11 in Christ Jesus.

We have obtained listen past tense. We have obtained an inheritance, having been predestinated according to the purpose.

His purpose who works all things after the counsel of whose will is will we are talking about what God has willed not what we desire and you see is what will the weevils say it with our lips, we will thinking without mind but underlying that Satan throws in his will study but that's not meant for you. That's not what that means. That's not what that says. And that is Satan. He says that what God has done. He has done a court of the counsel of his own will that he says that you and I have passed since obtaining an inheritance.

Look, if you will. In Romans chapter 8 for just a moment and looked in the verse 16 and 70, you know, verse 16 he says the Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are the children of God.

Medicine and if condition that is if we're children having been saved by the grace of God through faith and if children errors also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with them in order that we may also be glorified with another's. He says that you and I have become an inheritance out you look it up in the Greek what that means what he say the word means one who has been given has been deeded a land grant. That's what that means what he saying in this passage is that God has been deeded you and me something, but he says likewise that you and I have become joint heirs with the person of Jesus Christ. That is all that God the father has given his son. He says he's put your name and my name on the title deed to the inheritance of all of that God owns all the Jesus Christ has. He says we become joint heirs used to know whether there is no way for me ever to deserve it and I will tell you my friend. That's the whole issue is the cross and not your deserving you think that's after the counsel of his will that has nothing to do with how good or how bad you are is on the basis of what Jesus Christ did to the cross. He made it possible I watch this will is not executed until after the death and when Jesus Christ went to the because you recall the night before. The upper room with his apostles.

He says this is a new covenant, a new will.

This is a new contract between the father and you and when Jesus Christ went to the cross he died. The Holy Spirit came into your life and my life to do what making it possible for us to enjoy.

Here and now the inheritance which we have now. On the one hand we are part of Jesus Christ inheritance.

God the father has given us to him. On the other hand, he says that you and I have become joint heirs of Jesus Christ of all that God the father has provided and all the Jesus Christ is providing even though we are joint heirs. That is, we are participators, he says, Blessed be the God and father Lord Jesus Christ, who has a depositor account that's our inheritance. He says it's already there. Our inheritance has already been redeemed and it is already being deeded out to us. We are already being able to share and to participate in that inheritance. It will cause we meet his condition. He says we have obtained past tense and inheritance. We've already obtained and we are now in the process of being able to enjoy and share it. He is a loving father who has already provided and he says you are a joint heir with Jesus never back if you will end Ephesians from a look if you are in verse 14 he says the Holy Spirit has been given to us as a pledge of that inherent spacing.

God doesn't miss anything, and visited that he said were one of these days you're going to inherit something the Bible says at Pentecost the Holy Spirit came. He says the same chapter to seal us. It was God's pledge that the inheritance that he has provided draws that every single person who listen every single person who has that pledge.

The indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit sealed by the spirit of God, that person has the right, in this present day, hereinafter participated in a get involved in and become the recipient of part of that inheritance that God is provided because the heritage inheritance will never be exhausted all eternity. But I watch this next verse let's move down to chapter 2 of Ephesians verse 18 is still in verse 17 he says that he came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who are near fall through him that is through Christ we both have our access in one Spirit to the fall that turn if you will back over to Romans chapter 5 the missionary something interesting about this word access in chapter 5, a Romans beginning in verse one he says. Therefore, having been justified declared righteous.

We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.

I watch this missing throughout Lord Jesus Christ, we have peace with God, through whom all so perfect tense I watch this. We have obtained in the past and in the present tense. What we obtain the past is going on in full action and full speed ahead because he says listen, through whom also we have obtained our what our accessible introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand… All of us know they were living in grace the cross is made it possible to live in grace. That's all we have is the grace of God, he says there's not anything within your own self exhibited at is Christ within us and welcome the Holy Spirit living in grace standing upon greatest walking in grace living in grace dying in grace that he says not only has there been that deposit. He says brand names on the title deed which says we have a right to it. Thirdly, he says not only that, he says we have access to it. In this it is one thing for God Almighty and all of his omnipotence and love and generosity to make this provision cross of every spiritual blessing in the habit is in Christ Jesus. That's one thing but how do I get what God has down here in my life to meet my needs on a daily basis is and what he says.

He says, through whom also we have obtained once and for all and we have that in our possession, our access by faith into this grace because you seek his resources is a result of his grace. That is the grace of God in living color every single thing we need. God is provided.

Now back to job verse 18 in chapter divisions for through him we both have our access in one Spirit and the problem should have that word access is using the great nuances it is used, to refer to a channel here is a ship out at sea and the ship comes through the channel into the safety of the harm.the channel is a way of access in the same to the harm that word was also use to describe one who had the privilege of coming and having a conversation with a sovereign with a king that is the key made himself accessible. That is the way was opened what he's saying in this passage is this what's this that through the shedding of the blood of Jesus Christ on the cross and your response to accept him as your Savior, the Holy Spirit came into your life. Now he says we have open, unhindered access to God the father.

We don't have to pray to any man on the face of this earth we go straight to God the father through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit leads us.

He says he makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be as he leaves us in the very presence of Almighty God the father in the presence of Almighty God the father, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing. The presence of Almighty God the father, who has written our names on the great title deed to eternity on the great title deed or target God the father has written our names were tightly that's why on the book of Hebrews.

He says we can come: listen reverently but solely we can come to the throne room of our loving heavenly father who is there sitting already waiting to bless his children waiting to get them down. These waiting to glorify himself with in every single one of them. God is looking for people who are willing to risk their faith and Almighty God. Listen to me, my friend listen to me carefully, Almighty God wants to bless you.

But he will not force his blessing upon you.

You listing the wrong voices you listen to your feelings.

You taking account of that which you should not take account of your faith centered in God. Most of bless you mostly, Bill Jude, God most of strengthen you and not have you mumbling through life with a settle for life.

There is no glory to God in the settled for life, none whatsoever. I just asking one simple question. According to this book. He says through Jesus Christ we have access by one Spirit into this grace wherein we stand access to God the father. The me ask you this, is it not true that the loving heavenly father, whom you and I profess to believe, is it not true that every single second of your life. God, your father is available to you at that moment than my friend. Let's stop doubting crawling around in a settle for life and let's stand up like godly men and women and claimed by faith. What is ours and be freed, liberated from these feelings of insecurity, inferiority and inadequacy and explain our delightful session in Jesus Christ. Thank you for listening to how they treat can set you free.
