IN HIM REALITIES 3
Memory Verse: Romans 8:1 “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus”
Christ is our identification. Our confessions must be in the light of the risen and exalted Christ. He is risen and exalted! Hallelujah.
“Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear”. Acts 2:33
HE is exalted. He has received of the father the Holy Ghost for his body, the church. So when we want to describe the believer we must see him from the standpoint of the risen and exalted Christ.
Christ is seated at the right hand of God. The believer is seated in Christ at God’s right hand! This is because we were raised together with him by identification. What happened to him, happened to us.
“But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus” Ephesians 2:4-6
So we are seated in heavenly places even though we are resident physically and in time in our physical bodies.
So God never did anything in Christ without his body the church.
He died, we died.
He was buried, we were buried.
“Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life” Romans 6:3-4
When he was raised from the dead, we were raised too!
It was a joint quickening!
We are not dead in trespasses and sins. We are alive to God! Why? JESUS is alive to God. He is alive to God forever; we are alive to God forever!
As he is so am I!
As I am so is He!
Now we are born again after his divine genome. We are predestined to manifest in accordance to his divine genome. We cannot manifest anything else. HE IS OUR LIFE! HE IS OUR LIGHT.
We are born of him!
When you see Christ (head) you have seen the church (body). The same GRACE, The same POWER, The same SPIRIT!
CONFESSION: Christ is my life, he is my light, I am as He is right now. I am conscious of who Christ has made me. Amen
