I have recently noticed how people who have been on the cave tour still do not use the cross in the correct way. Please give me the opportunity to explain it in the simplest possible way.
I have explained that the Lord taught me to see the conscience as the surface of a lake when it is wind-still and calm. The conscience, like the water surface, reflects heaven, like a mirror. All of us have been this calm many times in our lives, it is when we are in contact with God. However, the phone rings, and as the problems appear, our calmness disappears. The water surface becomes stormy and our hearts become troubled. This is a sinful heart. Jesus walked on the storm and calmed it with a spoken word. With this miracle, He showed me that he would give his life so that he could bring peace in our hearts and this is why they called Him the Prince of Peace.
Sometimes we forget that Jesus came to save us and give us peace.
He saves us from the storms so we can live in peace. Jesus gave his life on the cross so that we can be saved. There is no other religion where someone gave his life so we can live in peace in a Christ mind. Bad things have happened to all people, and we have compassion with people, but did you know you can be saved from those bad things?
Yet we still choose to look at the problem. We pray about the problems and we even try to give it to God, but after our prayer time we talk about the problem again and allow our frustrations to rule us, we have no peace. All the while Jesus died so that we can have peace, in the hearts of God’s loving children.
I use the word ‘children’ because if you are still praying this childish way it’s time to grow up and become a son and daughter of God. We are supposed to rule in the earth. We do not talk about the problem, we tell it to throw itself in the sea! We lay hands on the sick and they shall recover. We do not listen to our feelings and emotions, we tell the feelings and emotions how they feel.
So come let’s use the cross. In the morning draw a line across the middle of a page and place the cross right in the middle. Below the line, you wright down those things that must be crucified. Now enter your prayer closet and close the door behind you. Get your communion elements ready and ask the Lord to bless the bread and the wine and say: “I WILL DIE TO THE FLESH AND RISE IN THE SPIRIT IN THE SAME WAY JESUS DID.”
Inside your heart room is calvary, you can see the blood footprints of Jesus going up the hill to the top. If you look around you will see an old cross laying in your heart garden, go and pick it up and follow Jesus. We are going to Luke 9:23.
Luk 9:23: “Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.”
The teaching is that we must lay down our life—daily! In Romans 12:2 we become a living sacrifice so that our minds must renew.
As I do introspection I know which things must be crucified. If the problem is a person, then crucify the person and name the things in the person that are offending you. If the problem is a person with an unruly tongue like a ship on the ocean without a rudder then crucify that tongue. If it is pride, then imagine what they look like when they are proud and arrogant and crucify them. If it is a sickness in the body then crucify that part of the body. Give these things a lot of thought. Let the Holy Spirit point out the things that are stealing your peace. Do this while you are eating the communion bread.
While crucifying in this way you are doing Galatians 5:25. If you struggle with the flesh crucify it!
Do not leave the cross until you experience a release in your spirit. Then drink the wine and now (Heb 10:22) let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. You need this washing!
When we drink the blood of Christ we are saved from the problems. The blood is a seal for our conscience and falls on the surface of our hearts, cleansing and sealing us, causing a division between flesh and spirit. You are now saved to live in the above, in the spirit. We now live in Christ. We are saved, we have the helmet of salvation. Continue to put on the rest of the armor of Ephesians 6. You are now above the problem, in Christ. You are seated with Christ in Heavenly places (Eph 1:3) and the problems are under our feet. It is no longer I who live but Christ who lives in me. (Gal 2:20)
All of this happened in the outer court. When you leave the outer court close the door behind you, sealing it with the blood of Jesus, just like the Israelites had to seal their doors in Egypt. The work of Calvary is sealed in your heart. The problem is crucified, God and all of heaven will sort it out. Now we enter into the Holy Place, where we stand in thanksgiving before our Father. Thank you, Father, you have saved me! You are now saved and the rest of your day is spent giving thanks to God who saves His people. YOU ARE FREE IN CHRIST!!
If it should happen that the problem comes back into your mind today then speak to it in the same way Jesus spoke to the devil. Say it is written, and in this way fill your mind with the Word of God. Find all those scriptures that give you authority over the works of the enemy and memorize it and fill your mind with life. Tomorrow morning ask the Holy Spirit to show you what you forgot to crucify.
This is the way we guard the heart. Prov 4:23
When we enter in, correctly we can stand in the presence of God every day, where we can take up our authority and speak to the mountain in every area of our lives daily. Here is the link to the Twelve Room Prayer that will guide you further into praying with authority about every area of your life.
