Born to Win

By Rev. Ade Ajala

Galatians 3:13-14
13 Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”) that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

Redeemed means God has already done it; He’s not going to do it because He’s already done it. Why has God not delivered me? He’s not going to do it because God has already done it. Why has God not healed me? He’s not going to do it because God has already done it. You were not just saved the year you thought you got saved, you were saved over 2000 years ago but you responded the year you gave your life to Christ.

Rev. Ade AjalaYou were bought with a price; the blood of Jesus is the price God paid to purchase you. Your purchase price is higher than what could be paid with natural man. Many people think that there are some things that are beyond them, but the truth is that you worth more than anything on earth. A Rolls-Royce is not more precious than you; no house is so far fetched for you. No neighborhood is too expensive for you to live in. You should not be intimidated about things because you are more precious.

Israelites saw themselves as grasshoppers and God did not do anything but to allow them to die as grasshoppers but allow the next generation that saw themselves as people who can take the land. You see God has the best for you, but if you don’t see yourself of worthy of enjoying it, then you will not enjoy it.

Sin consciousness makes us to think as if we have never been redeemed. Sin consciousness brings in condemnation and unworthiness. It robs us of creativity and we always punish yourself and always in the mode of lack and we keep begging God for everything. Just like Lazarus the beggar. It was not God’s intention for the beggar to be saved begging. He was nevertheless saved but died begging and God let him. If you let yourself beg then God will let you beg.

When you were redeemed, you were redeemed from poverty, sickness and death. It all comes with the package. But if you don’t have the consciousness of your right you will be left alone to enjoy what you want to enjoy.

Righteousness consciousness brings a sense of victory; you don’t get into argument with people, and you

Deuteronomy 21:22-23
22 “If a man has committed a sin deserving of death, and he is put to death, and you hang him on a tree, 23 his body shall not remain overnight on the tree, but you shall surely bury him that day, so that you do not defile the land which the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance, for he who is hanged is accursed of God

When you hang him on a tree, do not leave him there all night because he is devoted to the Lord for destruction. Joshua captured the kings and he hanged them but did not let them be on the tree overnight.

Numbers 21:7-9
7 Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, “We have sinned, for we have spoken against the LORD and against you; pray to the LORD that He take away the serpents from us. ” So Moses prayed for the people. 8 Then the LORD said to Moses, “Make a fiery serpent, and set it on a pole; and it shall be that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, shall live. ” 9 So Moses made a bronze serpent, and put it on a pole; and so it was, if a serpent had bitten anyone, when he looked at the bronze serpent, he lived.

Moses made a serpent of brass. When they look on the serpent on the brass which is a divine judgment they got healed. The serpent on the pole – a sign of Medical profession. You look at the serpent on the pole and healing take place. All this is pointing to Jesus.
