John Mark and Sandy Pool: Freedom: From Inside Out!

John Mark and Sandy PoolRecently, the Lord sent an angel called "Fullness" to me in a night vision, and the heavenly being was facing me holding a sign in hand and decreeing aloud, "360!" Upon fully awakening, I could still hear the angel's voice saying the number 360! I knew immediately in my spirit that it meant we are coming "full circle" with the Lord in this new season!

My first thought was that the 360 must mean a double of repentance, or making a 180-degree about-face twice. Yet, this made no sense because 180 degrees done twice would lead into a complete circle. The Lord spoke to me in His familiar small, still voice, "That complete turnaround circle is truly where genuine repentance from dead works leads." God reminded me that we were all with Him before the foundations of the earth, and He knew each of us before we were born. Therefore, our acceptance of what He gave us through the completed assignment of the Cross of Calvary is bringing us 360-degrees into our genuine relationship with our Creator! Let God turn us around on His potter's wheel and prepare us for all His promises. Coming full circle is knowing God not only as our Creator, but also as Abba Father!

The Lord then took me to Genesis 35 where Jacob had truly come full circle in his long journey into full possession of Canaan. God is honoring the covenant through the transformed Jacob, now named Israel, not only possessing, but also now flourishing, in His Promised Land – and God wants to flourish you!

The Lord spoke clearly to me, and said again in His small, still, precise voice, "Israel and all the nations are about to demonstrate My heart, coming 360 degrees into fullness of time. My Word is My Spirit of Life, and that is My covenant. I AM honor-bound to perform it. I will uphold My people with My righteous right arm. My people will demonstrate that My heart is for all to drop off the old religious bindings and come 'full circle' to follow the way of the Cross by completely accepting My LOVE relationship. I gave My best, My only Son Jesus, to redeem all My creation and lands. All will see now and know that Jesus 'our Redeemer lives!'"

The Father said for us to declare, "God, You brought us out of a dry and thirsty land of wandering and into a land flowing with milk and honey, where we are completely free and will never allow sin to stop our blessings again!"

Now we are moving into a time to decree the greatest "full turnaround" that this country has ever experienced. We have 360-degree "completion" authority through Calvary's Cross to be the testimony to Israel and the world that, when you take Jesus as your Savior, sin is no longer part of you. Come into your "Promised Land Destiny," because in Christ you will never have fear of sin again! God is Spirit and knows our hearts. God our Creator always knows His own from inside out, and His truth frees us forever.

1 Samuel 16:7 ...for God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.

Our Church Today Does Not Suffer From Outward Sin...But "Outside In"!

Many people in the "church culture" of today are awakening with the increased understanding of God's Kingdom message, which has always gone from the inner being to the outer person. Why?

The "religious spirits," in an attempt to put constraints upon our freedom as a result of the finished assignment of the Cross, add "human efforts for salvation," and deceitfully demand for the so-called scriptural "working out your own salvation" as justification! That is "false doctrine." Apostle Paul was talking to young Believers who needed to grow in their walk; he was not telling them to toil to obtain a "born-again" relationship with God (see Philippians 2:12). He was telling them to be delivered (Greek, soteria, translated to English as "salvation"). They were already Believers – needing maturation.

Christians are the best candidates for complete deliverance. Jesus accomplished victory for you in every area of your life upon the Cross with His decree, "It is finished."

Colossians 2:14-15 emphatically confirms this message:

"He canceled the record that contained the charges against us. He took it and destroyed it by nailing it to Christ's Cross. In this way, God disarmed the evil rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by His victory over them on the Cross of Christ."

Therefore we decree by the power of the Cross:

• Jesus Christ did everything we need once and for all! We will not allow a false cross of works or religious rules anymore.

• We do not need to work ourselves out of the religious sinful nature. No performance-based activity for a "false freedom" will ever be allowed again.

• We will now display what we are in our hearts...we will not live with a "fear of sin," because we are forever "free indeed"!

Do not be angry about your past, because people unknowingly gave you the wrong directions. It is time we know that because Christ is in us we are no longer sinners, but instead we are living saints saved by Jesus Christ and covered by His Blood.

Our sins are no longer imputed (or charged) against us. Romans 6:5-6 says: "Since we have been united with Him in His death, we will also be raised as He was. We know that our old sinful selves were crucified with Christ so that sin might lose its power in our lives. We are no longer slaves to sin."

Blind Guides Can Only Blind Others!

Jesus' completion of His work on the Cross highlights the message of the heart by:

• Christ exposing the rules of religion that trapped people into continuing in sin. Christ destroyed sin, giving grace over works so Christians grow in strength and endurance through the trials, and instead of blaming the devil they praise God.

• Our resurrected Christ takes away our ability to pursue sin and directs our focus upon important areas such as fellowship, intimacy, atmosphere, presence, and desire for God's will... like sharing the love of Jesus with others.

• We must let God change what generations have been incorrectly taught, that the phony seeds of "law over love" could produce holiness. Genuine holiness is good seed reproducing good fruit from a heart on fire after God through an intimate relationship with Him.

Offering counterfeit fruit, religion teaches:

• law over love
• rules over relationship
• fretting over freedom
• striving over arriving
• performance over presence
• insecurity over intimacy

God's Relationship Is the Enemy of Religion!

Now is the time to secure your loving relationship with a loving Father God. Today is the day to ask Jesus to cleanse our hearts, turn us completely around, and remove any bindings of "old religious" teachings. Ask Jesus Christ to become the Lord of your life and allow the Holy Spirit to destroy any fear of sinning.

Boldly decree your new security in His ever-present love and completion of your life, being sin-free through His Blood forever. The 360-degree family circle in unity will not be broken.

Now, love the Lord, love people, and enjoy a life free of sin indeed! Remember, with God, "It's what's on the inside that counts!"
