When you emigrate from a port of origin, to the port of destination you effectively change ports by some means of transportation; you are transported. With God we are not just called to change ports, or locations like Israel going from Egypt to Canaan, we are called to be transformed (transform—change to another form) that is different from what you have know to be you. As Christians we are called to be transformed by the renewing of our minds; to that end we’re given the mind of Christ, and everything that makes God what he is so we can change into his form. We are given his name, his mind, his kingdom, his divine nature, his spirit, his life, his power, his glory…. everything.
It isn’t hard to guess at the reason the exodus generation that left Egypt didn’t cross over into Canaan’s land of promise. The easy answer would be that they had a particular mindset that was not compatible with meeting the conditions for entering that Promised Land.
They were still of the Jewish stock, and children of Abraham; they just weren’t going to go into Canaan. You may very well be saved, and your eternal security assured as long as you continue trusting for salvation by faith in Christ. Between now and that time there are many hazards that you have to navigate or otherwise abide, and there is a work reconciliation ministry that you are called to do which no man can do…..thus the compelling need therefore for this transformation if you will do this work that man cannot do. Heaven is yours, but for now there is a transformation process that in no uncertain terms you are exhorted to make your experience, so that heaven can invade the world you live in now before you die and go there.
That God might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in Christ: (Ephesians 1:10)
CHRIST IS GOD’S—WE ARE CHRIST’S— ALL THINGS ARE OURS. WE GROW UP INTO HIM IN ALL THINGS; SO THAT AS HE IS, SO ARE WE IN THIS WORLD, NOW (1 Corinthians 3:23/ Eph. 4:15)
There is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him. By the anointing we have much greater understanding in our hearts. We know where we fit into God’s plan. It not only saves us by Christ Jesus; but invites us to actively play his role as ministers of reconciliation. We are ambassadors of glorious power, and authority in heaven, and on earth. With a lively hope therefore we anticipate with real expectation just how rich, and how glorious are the blessings that God has divided unto us; to receive them, and to walk in them. We have access through Christ into the heavenly places. Through our role as Christ, in this plan; God likewise has access through us, to come into this world. By this access he reaffirm his dominion, and work of reconciliation.
Both to revive us, and to reaffirm this dominion; the exceeding greatness of all God’s glorious and mighty power is expressly put forth out of the very being of God and directed unto us for the ministry of reconciliation. As believers in Christ it is available to us for this work of reconciliation. This mighty power is of the same great strength God used to raise Christ Jesus from the dead, and set him, and we in him, on the right hand of the Majesty on high; in the heavenly places.
In Christ, we are raised up far above all principality, power, might, dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that world to come. God hath put all things under his feet, and gave Christ to be the head over all things to the church. As the church, we are his body; the fullness of him that filleth all, in all. If in anything we are other than perfect, God reveals it to us so we are perfected as our Father in heaven is perfect.
All people of the earth sees we’re called by, and answer to the name of the Lord. The Lord puts the fear & the dread of us upon all the nations that are under the whole heaven who shall hear the report of us, and shall tremble, and fear because of us. As this was known also to all the Jews and Greeks dwelling at Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified.
The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do, these things also doeth the Son likewise. Without Christ we can do nothing…The father takes all things of Christ, and shows them to us, for us to do all.
The Father raiseth up, and quickeneth the dead, even so the Son quickeneth whom he will. My Father is greater than I, and he will show me greater works. We believe, keep, and speak all the things of Christ that the Father shows unto us; and grow up into him in all things. We do all the same, and even greater works than that of Jesus, because the Father who is greater than he, is comes unto us. We Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils, and cure all manner of diseases & infirmities.
The Father hath committed all judgment unto the Son; even authority to execute judgment. This honor has God also given unto us, in Christ; even to execute the judgment that is written, and authority to exercise dominion.
Christ & we, his body receive the Spirit without measure; His anointing teaches us in all things, to do all things
Christ is The Word of God; we are Letters of Christ written by the Spirit of the living God.
To Christ, and to we his body is given all power in heaven, and in earth. We are strengthened with all might according to his glorious power—(making us all mighty).
Christ’s voice is full of majesty, power, living spirits & voice of words. In him our voice is full of the majesty that in the beginning was God & was with God; and now is the word of God’s power that are spirit & life, which we speak.
Christ & we his body, are a life giving spirit—the Resurrection, the Prince of Life, the terror of death, and the destruction of the grave. As sons of God, the dead hear our voice and live. Without hindrance we intimidate, harass, terrorize & persecute death; we free the prisoners & by plagues make the grave barren.
Christ & we his body is Emanuel, the Lord of all walking in the flesh; in whom dwells the all the fullness of the eternal Godhead; all things are ours. God gives to us the Spirit without measure.
Christ & we his body is the Lord from heaven—The last Adam. The world sees the Father when they see us; the express image of the invisible God; we bear his express—perfect image.
We receive in Christ the spirit without measure, power to prosper, get wealth, and be healthy as our soul prospers. So do we keep his covenant sworn to our fathers, which the Lord who we this day remember, establishes with us.
Christ & we his body is The prince of the kings of the earth; the Power & wisdom of God who inherits all nations. The glory of the gentiles flow unto us & the Father adds to us a minimum of 4 1/2 billion souls from all nations.
Christ & we his body, is The Head & Chief Corner Stone; the Eternal God Almighty unto the world’s reconciliation.
Christ & we his body, is The Ancient of Days. His anointing teaches us in all things, to do all things.
We have received this anointing and know all things, and can also do all things by Christ who strengthens us.
See , God doeth this day set us over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out , and to pull down , and to destroy , and to throw down , to build , and to plant. For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: 4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 6 And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when our obedience is fulfilled
Christ is our sanctification; therefore God has made us to be as his mouth.
Our mouth is the open armory of God weapons of war: the terrible, swift, living, 2-edged sword of the Spirit •
The hammer & the battle-axe that break in pieces and destroy nations and kingdoms of darkness • sharp iron threshing instruments with teeth • ponderous chains of darkness to bind • fire to consume & devour • mighty yokes & fetters of iron • emptiers • reapers • sifters • instruments of God’s darkest dread & quaking, that dissolve, loose & smite.
WE REJOICE IN CHRIST JESUS, AND RECEIVE THE KINGDOM, POWER AND GLORY OF GOD.
