"He is Giving Us the Triple Crown! We Are Justified through Jesus!"
By Mary Dorian
We are Justified through Jesus!
Have you ever thought you heard something from the Lord and then talked yourself out of it? I did that recently. The Lord put in my heart that the horse, Justify,
would win the Triple Crown. I kept the word to myself, wondering if indeed I heard correctly. Last month, Justify won the Belmont Stakes and the Triple Crown. The Holy Spirit told me that this horse, Justify, who won the Triple Crown, was a sign and wonder
for the Body of Christ for this hour. This is an encouragement from Him to run our race in faith, knowing we will receive a crown, an imperishable crown.
You may be wondering if the things you are doing in the Kingdom are in vain. God
has not forgotten you or the words you have held onto from Him. You do not run your race in vain or have spent your labor to no purpose.
Justify winning the Triple Crown stands out in this hour as a encouragement to all the Body of Believers
who have received right standing with God—freely through His grace—and who demonstrate and prove at the present time (this now season) that Jesus, Himself, is righteous and that He justifies and accepts as righteous anyone who has faith in Him.
Oh, how exciting! We are justified by Jesus. We, God's people, have everything we need to bring in a world-wide harvest. Certainly, the harvest is ripe, especially in our own nation. The Holy Spirit is teaching us how to rule and reign as
His Body in the midst of our enemies—things like sickness, hatred, violence, worry, rejection, guilt, shame and poverty. Nothing can defeat the people of God who have right standing with the Father.
The Triple Crown
Some of you may know that the Triple Crown in horse racing means winning three different races. Three different crowns are ours because Jesus finished His race:
1) The victor's Crown of Righteousness laid up for us, which
the Lord, the Righteous Judge, will award us and all those who have loved and yearned for and welcome His appearing (see 2 Timothy 4:7-8). 2) The conqueror's Crown of Glory, which belongs to every overcomer, and 3) the Crown of Life which is given to those
who don't quit, even if it costs them their lives. Yes, the Crown of Life is given to those who stay the course, finishing their race. It is a crown—the Crown of Life—especially sized just for you with your new name written in it.
"So fear, nothing or no one," says the Lord. "These are the days men and women from past generations longed to see and be part of, and you have been especially chosen to be alive in the Kingdom for this time. This most wonderful, supernatural time."
The Summer of 2018
This summer has so much potential included in it for future impact. Things will look grim in our nation at times, the temperature will rise and the heat will increase, but God's plans
will also prosper in the hands of His people. Keep your eyes on the Supreme Court and pray. Change is coming. In the spring seeds are planted, but it is in the summer that those plantings will grow and become mature and ripe so a wonderful harvest can come
The Lord reminded me of this Scripture in Jeremiah 8:20 (the Message translation): "The crops are in, the summer is over but for us nothing has changed. We're still waiting to be rescued." Many seeds have been planted, but in this
summer season the Holy Spirit is calling for those who will water and strength those young plants for maturity. Many people in the Church and outside the Church feel like they need to be rescued. They need to be loved. For a harvest to come in the seeds must
first be planted and the plantings must then be nurtured.
Parable of the 10 Virgins
As I conclude this word, I feel that the Holy Spirit has brought to my mind the parable of the 10
virgins. We all pretty much have heard, taught or read this parable in the Word.
The parable tells of the five wise virgins and the five foolish virgins. Jesus explains that the wise virgins were ready go to the Wedding and the foolish
virgins who were without oil for their lamps were left behind. I felt as the Body of Christ we need to stay watching and ready. Do not allow distraction to take your attention away from what is truly important. Stay alert—eyes wide open and expecting!
The book of Hebrews 3:14 (AMPC translation) says, "For we have become fellows with Christ (the Messiah) and share all He has for us, if only we hold our first newborn confidence and original expectation [in virtue of which we are Believers]
firm and unshaken to the end."
