Your Advocate Always Wins Your Case
1 John 2:11
My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.
If you want a glimpse of some real-life celestial drama, picture this: God the Father sits as Judge of the universe with Jesus Christ at His right hand, who is not only your High Priest, but also your Advocate.
When your accuser, the devil, comes along and says, “You have done this wrong and you have not done that right,” Jesus says, “Father, the devil is right, but My blood has paid for what the devil is accusing him of.”
Then the devil adds, “You have also not been reading the Bible or praying enough. And this morning, you told a lie.”
Again, Jesus will say, “Father, the devil has indeed reported correctly, but My blood has paid for all these failures.”
God the Father will then slam the gavel on the sound block and say, “Case dismissed! Next!”
You need to understand that God can justly declare you innocent and completely righteous because Jesus took your place at the cross, and shed His blood to pay for your sins and condemnation. (2 Corinthians 5:21) God is simply being faithful and just to what Christ has done.
When Jesus rose from the grave, He rose as your Advocate, your lawyer. But unlike most earthly lawyers who take on cases because it serves their interests and wallets, He is a lawyer who is personally interested in your happiness and well-being. Unlike earthly lawyers who are not caught up in the feelings and sufferings of their clients, Jesus went through great sufferings for you and paid with His own life so that you can receive all the blessings of God.
As your Advocate today, Jesus ensures that what He died and suffered to give you, you get! In heaven today, He defends and represents you to ensure that the healing, wholeness, protection and other blessings that He died to give you are enforced in your life. Beloved, have confidence in and rest in the ability of your Advocate!

I would like to give praise and honor to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ , for taking my place so I may sit with him at the right hand of the Father, just think we are Righteous because he his righteous,we are holy because he is Holy, what an awesome plan the Father had for our redemption to send his only Son to take the place of All mankind, once we were lost now we are found because he drew us unto himself. there are many things that we can have in our life, if we would just see that all our endeavors to do right, and also think that if we just live a Good life and do right by others then we shall be saved , how many of you have ever told a lie and said to yourself it is only a little lie and God will understand, or if you ever stole something and you thought it is only this, and no way God will be upset, well let me tell you a little story, if a man or women were caught stealing and when confronted they lied and said they never stole but it was caught on camera, then they have to go before the Judge and he says to you ,do you have anything you would like to say before I pass your judgement down on you, and you say to the Judge you seem like a very nice,and honest man could you go easy on me, the Judge then says you are right because I am such honest and fair man it would be wrong of me to not make sure you are punished for your crimes, well in it is the same for God how do you expect a God who is full of integrity to not make you reap that what you Sow, there is no way he will be able to do that he can't, he stands for purity and accepts nothing less from Us , well my friend I am here to tell you that God is a merciful God so if you lay all your life before him open and willing to freely let him be your Savior I promise you that you will not be disappointed . may you be Blessed on the Journey he has for you .God Bless Linda
