Here is a prophetic word the Lord gave me a while back that I am to share with you, my fellow believers on fire for Jesus Christ. Get comfortable, and behold:
“Victory is assured when you put your trust in My Son. Go up at once and possess it – you are well able to overcome in Christ. Such glory to behold as you bear fruit in faith, moving in accordance with My Spirit, utterly and joyously reliant upon the living waters flowing forth as you rest in Christ Jesus, the Sustainer of your soul.
“Go forth, My child, and claim your inheritance: live the glorious riches I have for you in the second man. Filled to overflowing, the wealth of nations are at your feet. Overshadowed by the Most High, indeed!
“Build up the highway – go before and show My Way!”
Praise the Holy Spirit for such words of encouragement!
Now, do you see how critical it is that we know Christ intimately and our true identity in Him?!
Dear brothers and sisters under the Lordship of Christ, KNOW that we partake of the divine nature. We have dominion! We rule and reign because God accomplishes His purposes through us, the blessed members of Christ’s Body!
So many Christians are writing about becoming “Christ-like”! Understand that I’m grinning now as I beseech you: wake up! Come on! Do you see what’s wrong with that?
Receive the revelation that God has already accomlished that: we are OF Christ already! It is finished! We are OF heaven already!
We need to KNOW the truth in order to be set free! I no longer live, it is Christ who lives in me (Gal. 2:20). How about you? Hour by hour I put off the old and put on the new (Col. 3:9-10). How about you?
Thinking that we need to become Christ-like is a red flag that we are being deceived, and are missing grace. Frankly, it is self-righteousness, the old sinful nature from the Garden of Eden deceived into trying to be LIKE God when we already are OF Him!
Praise God, the glorious truth is we are created in His image, and IN Christ we have been restored to that – we partake of the divine nature ALREADY!
The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work. No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in them; they cannot go on sinning, because they have been born of God. This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not God’s child, nor is anyone who does not love their brother and sister. (1 John 3:8-10)
Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it. (John 14:12-14)
I ask you now, with a huge grin, do you get it?! If so, press the “like” button or post a comment sharing some of the numerous Scriptures which address this. Rejoice with me in the astounding LOVE our Heavenly Father has for members of the Body of His Christ! Hallelujah!
…you have taken off the old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator. – Colossians 3:9-10
So very much love in Christ, your sister deanna
