Hello. My name is Jesus. I understand that my name is usually associated with a particular religion called Christianity, and so if you belong to a different religion you may think that I have no business being in your life. But I have not come to talk about religion. I have absolutely no interest in what religion you belong to, what color your skin is, what language you speak, or what part of the world you were born in. I am only interested in your heart. And I can see that it is breaking. I was before time and so I am a witness to the truth that ever since the fall of man, women have been mistreated. When my Father and I created this world this was not our plan for womankind. The fact that so many women have been abused, intimated, threatened, tortured, manipulated, raped, controlled and sold into slavery comes from the evil one – Satan – the angel who my Father cast out of heaven forever. He rebelled against my Father and was hurled to the earth, along with the angels who followed him. These dark forces are working through the man in your life who is hurting you. But I have good news. I have overcome.
Perhaps you have heard my story, but it is so amazing that it is worth telling again. The God who loves you very much desired to make a way to restore you to right relationship with him because he wanted to be in fellowship with you. At the appointed time he found a humble, unpretentious young woman, just like you. He used this woman as a vessel through which to redeem all of mankind to himself. I made a choice to leave heaven and all the glory that is due me, and through the power of the Holy Spirit I was born to a sweet, simple virgin. I, God, became flesh for you. While I was on the earth I performed all sorts of miracles so that people would know that I am God. I was crucified for claiming that I was God. When I died Satan and his demons rejoiced and they thought they had won. What they didn’t know is that my death was part of the plan. It was the reason I came to earth in the first place. I came to reverse the curse of sin and death and only I could do it. I became the ultimate, once for all sacrifice for every man and every woman. I did this for you and I did it so that you would be able to overcome the evil of abuse.
How does my death allow you to overcome the evil of abuse, you ask? Well my death isn’t the end of the story. Three days after they buried me in the ground I was raised to life. I am alive forever. Because I am alive, all power, authority, and dominion are mine. I am offering this power, authority, and dominion to you in my name. I have authority over the demons who are working in the man who is abusing you, and if you belong to me, you have this authority as well. These same demons are stirring your mind into confusion and causing you to believe lies that keep you bound. Have you ever heard a voice say “It is hopeless. You will never make it out alive.” or “What is happening to you really isn’t that bad. You are over reacting again.” I have the power to silence these lying spirits, and if you are in me you will have the power to silence them as well.
And there is more good news. I came to heal you and bind up your broken heart. I want to free you from fear and shame, and I want to fill your life with my love. I don’t care what religion you belong to. That doesn’t matter to me. I don’t play favorites and I see what you are going through. I know that you are lovely and amazing and I wish you knew it too. I love you and I want to rescue you. If you will only ask, I will come and be with you forever. I will never leave you or forsake you. If you give me a chance, I will prove myself to you. I will show you how tender my heart is for you. You will see that I am always faithful and that I never lie. You will learn that you can trust me because I am good. If you will put your hand in mind I will lead you to safety and freedom in my name.
“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.” Revelation 3:20
