Happy Birthday to Jesus!
All religions I know offer a remedy to deal with sin. The difference is the pathway (s) they suggest on how to get rid of sin consciousness.
Coming from a Judeo-Christian background, I’ve heard about intergenerational sin that was committed by the First Family (Adam and Eve) more than any other subject since childhood– before I was even born.
You may be wondering and asking why I had been familiar with intergenerational sin ‘before I was even born’– while still in the womb.
I won’t divulge the science behind it for the moment…
For now, just know that you and I didn’t just inherit the hardcore genetic materials of our ancestors such as their color, body structure, facial appearance, and so on. We also got their psyche, what they feared, their tempers, sin-consciousness, and so on.
Have you heard people saying: “You’re just like your grandpa”? Or “You sound like grandma”? Or “You’re stubborn like your father or a drunkard or reckless like your…”?
The point is, sin (both inter-generational and contemporary) resides at a deeper level, in some cases, without our conscious awareness.
Sin consciousness is one of the most powerful jailers of our soul. If you don’t recognize it, bring it from the subconscious to the conscious, and know how to deal with it, it:
- Eats you up alive,
- Limits your freedom,
- Makes you lower your bar,
- Keeps you in the dark,
- Robs you joy,
- Curtails your potential, and
- Restrains you from being contented and getting fulfilled in life…
I don’t want to preach to you on an Eastern Christmas morning.
This is my hope that you already know how to deal with intergenerational and contemporary sins by following the advice of your priest, pastor, rabbi, etc.
This morning I was reflecting and reminding myself how hard it was for my ancestors to get rid of sin consciousness before the birth of Jesus.
Unlike our ancestors before His birth, we needed to deal with intergenerational sin by believing in His substitutive work!
Our ancestors needed a sacrificial lamb constantly to escape death and get rid of sin. They were helpless and desperate. They were in prison and under the spell of the kingdom of darkness.
Lucky for us, Jesus was born and finally became that sacrificial lamb for all of us. Because of His advent, we were set free from the kingdom of the devil to the Kingdom of Light, where the Son of God is the King!
Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 5:7, “Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.”
Peter also wrote in 1 Peter 1:18-19: “For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.”
That is why we rejoice in His birth and reaffirm to ourselves our freedom each time we celebrate Christmas. We’re indeed free of any form of sin. We entered the Spiritual universe. Now, we live free of guilt in the light while away from HOME until we finish our soul’s assignment on earth and in this physical universe.
Unless someone prefers to deal with sin alone, an easy and effortless option is available to anyone still struggling with guilt consciousness.
Because Jesus was born and became the sacrificial lamb, no one should live with guilt and the rulership of the devil and its kingdom of darkness…
As I said from the outset, I’m not here preaching and trying to win anyone to any religion.
Every religion I know has a way of dealing with both intergenerational and contemporary sins.
You choose whatever works for you. But you MUST deal with guilt consciousness if you desire to be free from the heavy burden of sin.
I’m here to share how hard it was for my ancestors who were born before the advent of Jesus. And how I’m grateful for the extraordinary redemption package our Judeo-Christian tradition offers. It only takes less than the speed of light to translate yourself from the rulership of the devil to the rulership of Christ and from the kingdom of darkness to the Kingdom of Light. You just need to believe in your heart and confess it in your mouth. It is that simple!
Thank you, Father, for helping us deal with sin-consciousness our forefather (the first Adam) could not beat by sending Your Son (the last Adam) to the physical world wearing our body and in our likeness…
We’re eternally grateful to Jesus- our Lord, Big Brother, and Savior who was obedient to the intergenerational assignment He was given and endured death on the cross to FREE all of us from the unbearable sin consciousness that jails our souls.
Now, we can transcend time and space to enter the spiritual without the feeling of condemnation. We freely stand before the Father’s throne as sinless children of the Most High.
We’re privileged today to enjoy such a level of freedom regardless of our imperfections and stumbling not because of our righteousness or hard work but because Jesus was born. Since He willingly became the sacrificial lamb knowing that no one from the children of the first Adam ever is able to take on this assignment. Many saints tried to fulfill this task but were unable to finish it with full obedience the way He did! We’d still be like our forefathers and mothers in the dark and the rulership of the devil…
More than the generation before your birth, we’re NOW sure where we stand in the Kingdom and where we’re heading…
These wouldn’t have happened without Your birth. Happy Birthday to you, Jesus, our King, and Lord!
Happy Christmas to you all who celebrate Easter Christmas!
