CASTING OUR BURDENS UNTO THE LORD; IN "EXCHANGE" FOR THE ANOINTING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AND INDEED THE ETERNAL LIFE:
Life sometimes (and in most times) is full of pain, suffering, anguish, anxiety, wounds, worry, frustration, stress and depression. These are burdens that weighs and wears heavily upon the soul, spirit, mind, heart and body.
It is very important to note that these Burdens also include our Sins, and indeed Generational Sins and Curses from our forefathers and foremothers along our family lineage; right from Adam and Eve.
The LORD Jesus Christ always has an extended arm, promising to take away our Burdens and Sins in an “exchange program”, whereby He gives us a Light Burden. He promises to give us Rest for our Souls, so long as we heed to His Plea and Call unto us to Submit and Surrender our Burdens unto Him. He calls ALL to come to Him; regardless of their condition, situation, condition, status, history or background.
The Light Burden that The LORD gives us when we Surrender our Burdens (of sins, pain, suffering, anguish, anxiety, wounds, worry, frustration, stress and depression) to Him, is The Presence of The LORD (The anointing of The Holy Spirit), that then yields Rests for Our Souls through the Fruits of The Holy Spirit.
This is very powerfully captured in the book of Mathew 11: 28-30 which states as follows: ‘“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”’
The Fruits of The Holy Spirit that essentially are the “Nutrients” that brings Rest to our Soul are very powerfully captured in the Book of Galatians 5:22 which states as follows: ‘“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.”’
We can Only enjoy the Fruits of The Holy Spirit, once we submit our Burdens (which Includes a lifestyle of Sins) unto The LORD. This is very powerfully captured in the Book of Galatians 5: 16-21 which states as follows: ‘“I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.”’
It is actually for this very reason that Our Father in Heaven sent His Son The LORD Jesus Christ to come to the earth (in the human form) to take away our Burdens (of Sins E.T.C), for those who believe in Him and accept Him as their LORD, Master and Saviour. Meaning, actually that this Rest (The easy yoke and the Light Burden) that The LORD gives those who Cast their Burdens unto Him is Eternal (Everlasting) Life. Though He died for us on the Cross of Calvary and shed His Precious Blood for us, He is Risen and is sitted at the Right Hand of The Father in Heaven, interceding for us always. He is however present with us in the Spirit. This is very powerfully captured in the Book of John 3: 16-18 which states as follows: ‘“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”’
The LORD is therefore calling for Repentance in the Life of each and every human being in the entire earth, that they may receive Salvation through The LORD Jesus Christ (Their First Love, who knew them even before they were put in their mother’s womb). A Repentance from a lifestyle of Sin, and thereby taking to the path of Righteousness, Holiness, Truth and Complete Surrender to The LORD Jesus Christ. For those who have Christ have The Light of the World upon them; for He Jesus Christ is The Light of the World. This is very powerfully captured in the Book of Revelation 2: 4-5 which states as follows: ‘“Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent.”’
Remember, Cast your Burdens (Stress, Sins, Worry, Wounds, Pain, Frustration) unto The LORD, and He will give you Rest for Your Soul; for His Burden (His Presence/The Filling of The Holy Spirit) is Light.
Remember also, that at the Cross of Calvary: It Is Finished!!! It Is Finished!!! It Is Finished!!! It Is Done; In The Mighty Name and Blood of The LORD Jesus Christ. AMEN.
That’s why The LORD summarizes it all (The Message of Casting Our Burdens unto The LORD) very Powerfully in the Book of Isaiah 53: 1-12 which states as follows: ‘“Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, And as a root out of dry ground. He has no form or comeliness; And when we see Him, There is no beauty that we should desire Him. He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. Surely He has borne our griefs And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He opened not His mouth; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, And as a sheep before its shearers is silent, So He opened not His mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment, And who will declare His generation? For He was cut off from the land of the living; For the transgressions of My people He was stricken. And they made His grave with the wicked—But with the rich at His death, Because He had done no violence, Nor was any deceit in His mouth. Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him; He has put Him to grief. When You make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days, And the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand. He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied. By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many, For He shall bear their iniquities. Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great, And He shall divide the spoil with the strong, Because He poured out His soul unto death, And He was numbered with the transgressors, And He bore the sin of many, And made intercession for the transgressors.”’
PREPARE THE WAY FOR THE COMING OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST IN ABSOLUTE REPENTANCE, RIGHTEOUSNESS, HOLINESS, TRUTH AND COMPLETE SURRENDER TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST (YESHUA/YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH). TIME IS ABSOLUTELY OVER; THE MESSIAH JESUS CHRIST IS IMMINENTLY COMING TO PICK HIS BRIDE!!!
I acknowledge today that you are LORD and Savior of all mankind,
and today I have recognized my shortfall,
I Repent and turn away from all Sin.
Please cover me with your Precious Blood,
and establish your Word in my life,
that I may be found in Righteousness and Holiness
and write my name in your Book of Life
and baptize me with the power of the Holy Spirit
in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.
Your Brother in Christ and a Shepherd of The LORD,
