“It was God [personally present] in Christ, reconciling and restoring the world to favor with Himself, not counting up and holding against [men] their trespasses [but cancelling them], and committing to us the message of reconciliation (of the restoration to favor)” (2 Cor. AMP).
“Brother Hagin,” a woman asked, “why don’t I get healed? I know God has promised to heal me.”
I understood her problem and tried to help her. “No ma’am, God hasn’t promised to heal you any more than He has promised to save the lost. Nowhere in God’s Word does it say, ‘God has promised to save you.’ No, God’s Word declares that God has already done something about your salvation. God laid your sins and iniquities on Jesus.”
God has already reconciled us to Himself by Christ.
And He gave us the ministry of reconciliation. We are to tell people that God was personally present with Jesus Christ reconciling the world to favor with Himself. God is not imputing (counting up) or holding against men their trespasses anymore.
“Well,” someone said, “we’ll all be saved then, won’t we?” No, people must accept that reconciliation God offers. We are, by nature, children of the Devil, therefore, we must be born again!
Confession: I am reconciled to God by Christ. I am restored to favor with God, and God has given me the ministry of reconciliation.
