The Mysteries of being IN Christ – Part 1
This is one of my favorite subjects to teach on, because the bottom line is that it teaches us our identity, position and function, as children of God. When we realize who we truly are and we realize the place that we have access to be in, it totally transforms our walk with the Lord and has the potential to transform our entire family line generations back and forward, to all future generations!
I do not know about you, however, I will never be satisfied with just being purely a physical, temporal, human being, that is very limited by the solar time and space that governs the kingdom of the earth! You and I are actually a spirit being, SEATED UP WITH JESUS CHRIST, IN HEAVENLY PLACES. See, all though you and I do have a natural body, we are NOT humans in a normal sense anymore. We are supposed to be a NEW CREATION. 2 Corinthians 5:17 is very clear. “IF any men be IN Christ, he is a NEW CREATION.”
We can clearly see that we are given a choice. Contrary to popular beliefs, the moment one is born again, he or she DOES NOT automaticly become a “new creation”. SALVATION, is the very first step! Salvation takes us to the cross, however, the Lord Jesus does NOT want us to STOP AT THE CROSS, BUT GO THROUGH THE CROSS, to the other side, INTO HIS KINGDOM, NOW, NOT WHEN WE DIE, where He has prepared so much more for us!
We see the scripture say, “IF any men be in Christ”, showing us that we have a choice to STEP IN Christ! What happens IF any men be in Christ? THAN, he becomes a NEW CREATION. So, let us break this scripture down further, to see what exactly does this mean?
The Bible talks about the LORD JESUS CHRIST, a lot. What does it really mean? This is NOT ONLY taking about Jesus as simply HIS NAME, BUT IT TALKS ABOUT HIS FUNCTION, because Jesus HAS A FUNCTION and that IS as THE SON OF GOD. Let’s go further.
LORD, means – GOVERNMENT OR LORDSHIP..
CHRIST or CHRISTOS, means – ANOINTED OR ANOINTING.
So, when we are saying that we are IN CHRIST JESUS, we are saying that we are IN THE ANOINTING OF THE SON. Therefore, when we are saying that we are in Jesus Christ the Lord, this means – SONSHIP, THROUGH THE ANOINTING OF HIS LORDSHIP!
Let me make it a little more clear. We ONLY receive the POSITION of SONSHIP, (being recognized by all creation as a son of God) through the anointing of His Lordship! How does this happen? When I make Him LORD over every aspet of my life, when I give Him the throne of my life, or when I give Him the GOVENRNEMT of my life, my will, my desires, my wants and I SUBMIT or COME UNDER HIS LORDSHIP, HIS Government, THAN, He becomes the Lord of my life! As He becomes the Lord of my life, THAN, I HAVE ACCEST TO STEP INTO AND RECEIVE THE ANOINTING OF THE SON, JESUS, BECAUSE, it is NO LONGER I, BUT CHRIST IN ME , THE HOPE OF GLORY!! At that point, I will release THE SON’S anointing, which IS His GLORY….as a MATURE son, as a NEW CREATION!
So that means that If I do NOT give Him ALL of me and take on His government over my life, I choose to NOT be IN Christ, therefore, I am NOT a new creation, remaining the old one! As you can see, this is in steps.
Submit to Him as Lord and THAT gives you access to be INSIDE CHRIST, INSIDE THE ANOINTING. THAN, you become a new creation, a mature son of God, ready to be manifested. NEW and you start taking in His character because you are being TRANSFORMED ON THE INSIDE, AND TRANSFIGURED ON THE OUTSIDE, to look like Him, eventually, taking on His very DNA.
Let me end the first part of this blog, “The Mysteries of being IN Christ” by talking about the story we all know, about Moses on Mount Sinai found in Exodus 34:28.
We know that when Moses went up on Mount Sinai and he met with the Lord. He was IN the very presence of YHVH for FORTY days and night! WHATEVER YOU BEHOLD, YOU BECOME LIKE. WHATEVER YOUR EYE HOOKS INTO, MULTIPLIES IN YOUR LIFE. WHATEVER YOU ENGAGE, BECOMES THE VERY SOURCE OF YOUR SUPPLY! We can see in the book of Revelation, Isaiah, Ezekiel and elsewhere in the Bible, what is around the throne of God, what surrounds Him. As we look, we can see that among all the angels and beings, are the FOUR LIVING CREATURES, the Lion, the Eagle, the OX and the Man, worshiping HIM, day and night next to the throne of God. Again, with the understanding of the statements I made above, whose image do you think the four living creatures took???? (I cannot go in deeper in this now, I will leave this for another blog).
Now, the original Aramaic translation of this account reveals a lot more that actually happened to Moses. Because He was in the presence of YHVH day and night, for 40 days, he actually TOOK ON ONE OF THE IMAGES OF YHVH!
So as Moses come off Mount Sinai, ALL FOUR FACES OF GOD, LION, OX, EAGLE, MAN, started popping out of his face, that is why the scripture says that the people were filled WITH TERROR!!! They were NOT filled with that DEEP TERROR just because Moses’s face was shining with a bright, glorious light, but because MOSES TOOK ON THE VERY IMAGE OF YHVH, they were overcome with the Fear of the Lord! MOSES WAS TRANSFIGURED ON THE OUTSIDE TO LOOK LIKE THE ONE HE SPENT 4O DAYS WITH! Can you imagine, as we allow the Lord to transform and transfigure us, what will happen when we all of a sudden take on HIS image and we can walk even in the darkest places on the face of the earth, how the powers in darkness will TREMBLE as HIS FEARSNESS is seen IN and OUT OF US!
So what do you think we will LOOK LIKE, when we LEARN our true identity and the place we have access to be, which is IN CHRIST, IN THE ANOINTING OF THE SON BECAUSE WE MADE HIM LORD?
I want each of you that desires to step into HIM and receive the MORE that He has available for you, to do a bit of homework. I want you to get in a quiet place, putting on any type of worship that you can engage Him with. (Prophetic instrumental are some of my favorites for moments like this). I want you to take the scripture from 2 Corinthians 5:17 and start meditating on it. (I wrote a short blog on this subject in, “What you turn your eyes to see, you become. A season of going from hearing to SEEING”)
As you do this, start to worship Jesus, worship the Father as you turn your DESIRE of wanting to give Him ALL of you, a desire of wanting a deeper, closer relationship with Him like never before. LET YOUR DESIRE FOR HIM PUSH YOU INSIDE HIM! As you feel that desire rise, allow the Holy Spirit to open up YOUR GOD GIVEN IMAGINATION TO SEE JESUS! (God gave us our imagination for a REASON! The enemy did NOT give it to us, he does NOT create anything, he just steals what WE allow him to have, perverts it so we can stay away from it because of fear, NEVER TAPPING INTO ALL the reasons that GOD gave it to us! I will teach on this, in another blog).
Let the Holy Spirit GUIDE you to SEE JESUS! As you SEE Him, either with your imagination, or your spiritual eye, BY FAITH, BUT, TAKE A STEP FORWARD, (you can do this in the natural, as a prophetic act), and SEE yourself step INTO Him! Some may not YET SEE, you may have a “feel”. Go with that! Faithful in the small and the increase comes. Now, let Him take you and show you all that He wants you to see, looking OUT THROUGH HIS EYES!!! Do this every day if you can. Please let me know what He shows you. 🙂
Next blog, we will unveil the MYSTERIES that He has reserved for us, as we take our position IN HIM and all the tools He has available for us to use, so that we can actually start to FUNCTION OUT OF THAT POSITION!
