Last night I was in a home group of 9 adults (who I don’t know very well) who met to share, sing, support one another, and pray as led by the Spirit. As someone was praying an image came into my mind.
I saw a pair of hands tearing up several pieces of paper into shreds and then throwing the shreds into the air like confetti. Then these words, based on a Scripture, came to my mind: “I have torn up the handwriting of ordinances that was against you.”
As I told the group what I heard and saw, one woman was sitting with her Bible open while I shared. She said: “I am reading that Scripture right now.”
Then she read this section to us: “And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, has He made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses;blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to His cross.”
What are the odds against me having a Bible verse come to mind while someone (in a house church of 9) is silently reading the very same verse? Was this supernatural — a miracle?
God wants you to know: You can be forgiven (and relieved of the guilt you carry) through the Cross of Christ, if you will turn away from your sins and begin to daily follow and obey Jesus.
