In the previous Bible GemLight I drew a parallel from the tax return process in that one usually gets either a refund or has to make a payment. This also occurs in the spirit realm.
In this GemLight I want us to see part of the refund we all can have. These riches are more appealing when we realize that payment for sin includes unnecessary troubles now, and eternal punishment after we leave this world.
Just keep in mind that in order to receive these "credits" you need to forsake sin and be fully committed to Christ. Here are just some of the benefits of being in Christ. I would not have time or room to list all of them!
A, A Clear Conscience, Heb 10:22: "Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water."
B. Peace And Comfort In A Troubled World, John 16:33: "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world."
C. Freed From The Dominion of Sin, Rom. 8:2: "For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death."
D. Being Directed By God, Rom. 8:14: "For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God."
E. Being Cared For By God, 1 Peter 5:7: "Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you."
F. Soundness of Mind, 2Tim. 1:7 and Isaiah 26:3: "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." And, "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee."
G. Resurrection to Eternal Life, John 11:25: "Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:"
H. No More Sorrow, Pain Or Sickness Once We Leave Here, Rev 21:4: "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away."
"O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest and not comforted, behold, I will lay thy stones with fair colors and lay thy foundations with sapphires. And I will make thy windows of agates and thy gates of rubies, and all thy borders of pleasant stones. And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD, and great shall be the peace of thy children." --- Isaiah 54:11-13
