Jesus said, “I am leaving you with a gift-peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.”
Jesus said in John 14:30 that the ruler of this world (satan) has no power over Him. If Christ is in you, and you are in Him, then you have authority over satan and any demonic force. Beloved, I urge you to exercise your authority! Greater is He who is in me, than he who is in the world.
John 16:31-33 (the message)
Jesus answered them, “Do you finally believe? In fact, you’re about to make a run for it- saving your own skins and abandoning me. But I’m not abandoned. The Father is with me. I told you all this so that trusting me, you will be unshakable and assured, deeply at peace. In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties. But take heart! I have conquered the world.”
I hope everyone had a blessed Resurrection Day! Mine was filled with many blessings, surrounded by family and loved ones.
That Sunday evening the disciples were meeting behind locked doors because they were afraid of the Jewish leaders. Suddenly, Jesus was standing there among them! “Peace be with you,” he said. As he spoke, he showed them the wounds in his hands and his side. They were filled with joy when they saw the Lord! Again he said “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I am sending you.” then he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.”
