CANCELLED

_CANCELLED!_
Cancelled! Paid in full! What wonderful words to hear or see! They make us feel good all over when we have finally struggled to the top of a debt we owed.
_ But if our struggling was to no avail; if we were like the frog in the well, which jumped up two feet and fell back three feet, we realized we were hopelessly trapped. We are all trapped in a body of iniquity. _
_ Paul, in Rom 7, describes our condition, and cries out, "O wretched man that I am, Who shall deliver me from this body of death?"
_ He was referring to a practice in those days of fastening the dead body of a person onto the person who had killed him. He was required to carry that putrefy_ ing "body of death" until he himself died, which would be a comparatively short time.
_ His illustration, which was dictated by the Holy Ghost, was intended to tell us that each one of us is carrying a putrid "body of sin" with us wherever we go.
_ But, thank God, Deliverance _WILL_ come to us, if we hold fast our confidence until the end.
_ _We can have a measure of victory,_ if we have received the Baptism of the Holy Ghost (firstfruits of the Spirit), but full deliverance is withheld until a future time, known only to God Himself.
_ It is all spelled out for us in the Feasts of Israel, especially the Day of Atonement.
_ The Day of Atonement will "happen" shortly before the closing of this particular dispensation in the economy of God.
_ On the Day of Atonement, every seven years, all who had become servants for any reason were allowed to go home, free of their obligations. This is _FORGIVENESS,_ in miniature object lesson.
_ On the Day of Atonement, every fifty years, all debt, both public and private, was cancelled, _AND EVERY MAN'S POSSESSION WAS RETURNED TO HIM, NO MATTER WHAT HAD HAPPENED TO IT IN THE LAST FIFTY YEARS_. _THIS IS RESTORATION_, in miniature object lesson.
_ JESUS _ became our Passover at Passover time_, He became our Pentecost, on the Day of Pentecost,_ He will _BECOME TO US WHAT THE DAY OF ATONEMENT TYPIFIED._ We have very reason to believe that it will happen just as the precedents have happened: _ON THE DAY OF ATONEMENT!_
_ Man, (Adam) "sold" us all into slavery to a fallen nature when he disobeyed God in the garden. We were all born into slavery. We have never known complete liberty, or freedom from the sinful nature.
_ To be sure, we do have a measure of victory over the WORKS of the flesh by the Spirit of God, but the NATURE OF SIN is still present in every one of us.
_ _LET ME EMPHASIZE THAT WE CAN ONLY HAVE FREEDOM
FROM SINFUL ACTS AS WE OBEY THE WORD AND SPIRIT OF GOD. _ _
There is no other way but this way.
_ FORGIVENESS makes this possible, but _EACH OF US DETERMINES THE DEGREE OF LIBERTY WE ATTAIN TO._ IT IS IN _DIRECT PROPORTION TO OUR OBEDIENCE TO THE WORD AND THE SPIRIT. Reading the Bible and prayer in the Spirit are of utmost importance to our obedience to God.
Aside from these, we will get no where in God. The closer we walk to Him, the sweeter He becomes to us.
_ RESTORATION, OR JUBILEE, however, is a different dimension altogether. IT WILL ONLY HAPPEN to those who _"with patience wait for [it]."_ Rom. 8:25 "_To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality--."_ Rom. 2:7
_ RESTORATION means being brought back to the original condition before deterioration took place.
There will be a company of people who experience this transformation. It will be worth all it has cost to attain to it. God will do the choosing. He, alone, knows all hearts.
_ Almost every Christian is anxiously waiting for the "Rapture" to take them out of this world. This "escape" teaching has robbed us of a far more glorious aspect of the Gospel. Every one, almost, wants to "escape" the "Great Tibulation" that is "coming". The "Rapture" teaching ensures this, so we latch on to it like a drowning man grabs for a straw on the water.
_ No one, not even the bravest of us, wants to encounter "boogy man" Antichrist. Again, "Rapture" is the perfect answer.
_ But such is NOT the teachings of the Spirit and the Word. _They BOTH AGREE THAT THE TRUE BELIEVERS WILL OVERTHROW THE FORCES OF HELL BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD! They will STAND ON THE FIELD, VICTORS AFTER ALL FOES
HAVE BEEN VANQUISHED!_
_ _THE CHANGE WHICH TAKES PLACE IN THE TRUE BELIEVER
ON THE DAY OF ATONEMENT WILL MAKE THIS POSSIBLE. THE
MORTGAGE OF THE NATURE OF SIN WILL BE ---
_ PAID IN FULL---------CANCELLED!_
_ _THE NATURE OF SIN WILL BE GONE, COMPLETELY_
_ Let the earth beware of this liberated people. They are the Army of the Lord (Joel 2), and the Sanctified ones, the Mighty Ones (Isa 13). They are the Stone cut out of the Mountain (Dan 2:34, 45)
