Good Morning Precious and Dearly Loved Saint and Child of Our Abba Father!
WE are supernatural, miraculous, glorified, divine creations, one with Jesus and “as He is”! Is this the way you see yourself and all others around you? I realize that not all people have accepted the blood of Jesus and the gift of Eternal Life, but we see them prophetically as they would be in heaven if they had accepted the gift of salvation, Jesus’ saving grace. People are not saved until they receive the gift of salvation!
Pretty simple, but there is a movement of people that are teaching that everybody is saved because Jesus died for all people and God loves all people. Yes, Jesus did die for the sins of the whole world, and Yes, God Loves all people, but a person is still in their sin and have sinful nature until they accept the gift of salvation that Jesus died, bled, and suffered for! For those who have accepted the gift of salvation, the gift of Grace by faith, the Blood of Jesus, His glorious DNA flows through us with all of power and authority! “For in Christ, all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and you have been given fullness in Christ, who is head over every power and authority.” Colossians 2:9-10.
Our heart needs to be fully persuaded that we “are as Jesus is”, one with Him, full of His glory, seated in Him in the heavenly realms, right now! We must see that our sins were completely removed and taken away by Jesus at the Cross and that we have been completely healed and made as whole as Jesus is right now in all His glory!
We are learning to look above the suffering on the earth and learning to live from the place where we are living In Christ, in the heavenly realms, as a “member of God’s household.” This is such a powerful Truth in living as “More than a Conqueror”! We have to see ourselves living above our circumstances glorified in Christ, “as He is”! Our hearts and minds need to be established and set on these Truths no matter what we face in this life on the earth! Nothing the enemy can throw at us will be able to move us from the Truth of who we are In Christ, NOTHING! Our faith needs to be established in our heart, not just intellectual knowledge, but at the deep heart level, that God is completely for us and is not withholding any blessing, grace, or healing, or provision from us!!!
Our faith, “Pistis” in the Greek, comes from God, is a gift from Him as we hear the Rhema Word of Christ spoken to us by the Holy Spirit! People think that faith comes by reading a lot of books about faith, No; “Pistis” comes to us through the Holy Spirit, not by our reading of a thousand books on faith! The Spirit releases this gift of Faith into our heart. Yes our mind is used in the process, but faith from God is more of the heart, and less of the mind!
Many twentieth century Christians have a completely oversized minds from all the books and sermons, but our hearts are malnourished, dry and almost lifeless! The “Oil” of the Spirit comes into our heart as we commune with the Spirit! This is why seminaries are affectionically called “cemeteries’, the intellect is the target, not the heart! Faith is not information; it is the substance of God Himself!!!! This is “Pistis”, the Faith of God!!!! This “Pistis” is what establishes our heart in the Truth so that we can stand up against any storm the enemy wants to throw at us! It is the substance of God, “Pistis” that enables, empowers, and graces us to stand!!!!
All believers have already been blessed in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ, Ephesians 1:3, but these blessing turn into manifest power by the Holy Spirit as we accept, open, take hold, behold, and set our heart on the glory of Jesus and us in His glory, the fullness of Jesus inside of us!!! When we see ourselves “as He is” with an unveiled face, in our heart, we are being transformed into the likeness of Christ, with ever increasing glory!!!!! SHALOM!!!!!!!!
