April Letter 3: The Blessed Life
Greetings of Goodwill, Bliss and Peace be unto you from God the Father who has delivered us from the power of darkness and from Jesus Christ our Lord by whom we have received the mandate to “Preach the Full Message of this Née Life” to the peoples of this world. See Colossians 1:13-14, Acts 5:20 NIV; Luke 2:13-14.
Christianity is an invitation into a Royal Family. It is a calling into the transcendent life. When you got born again, you changed sides. You have been translated into the kingdom of God. You are a citizen of heaven. See Philippians 3:20 NIV; 1 Thessalonians 2:12; 2 Thessalonians 2:14; Revelation 1:4-6; 5:9-10.
As New Creatures in Christ we are no longer slaves and orphans. We are children of God. Until an individual understands what happened at the New Birth he will be under the whiplash of the enemy and dominated by the forces of this Life. See Ephesians 2:14-22; 2 Corinthians 2:12; 1 John 5:4;
Ephesians 2:11-13 NKJV
Therefore remember that you, once Gentiles in the flesh—who are called Uncircumcision by what is called the Circumcision made in the flesh by hands— that at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.
Christianity as we have always said is not a religion. It is a vital relationship with God as your Father through Jesus Christ in the Power of the Holy Spirit. When it dawns on you that you are a child of God, you will become conscious of the Life and Nature of God and your inheritance in Him. See 1 John 4:4; 4:16-18; John 3:16-17; 6:47.
The man outside of Christ is separated from God and under a curse because he is an enemy of God according the the Scriptures. To be without Christ is to be without hope and without God. God gave His one and only Son Jesus Christ to restore the broken relationship, fellowship and fortune that Adam lost.
Galatians 3:13-14 NKJV
Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”), that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
Once a man is reconciled to God through Christ He becomes a heir, a son and king. He becomes connected to the Blessing of Abraham and the manifested goodness of God. By virtue of being in Christ every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places is now yours. See Ephesians 1:3; Galatians 3:5-9; 2 Corinthians 8:9.
Stop thinking of yourself outside of Christ. You are in Christ now. Christ is also in you. There is a Divine Union, an Intermingling. You are One indivisible entity. You are of His flesh and of His bones. You have the mind of Christ. You are not an ordinary fellow. God lives in you and you live in Him 24/7. What a blessing! See Ephesians 5:30; 1 Corinthians 6:17; Acts 17:28.
You have the Person of God, the Power of God and the Presence of God available to you every single moment of everyday. All the Provisions of God are available to you. You cannot be stranded. You can never be without help because all of heaven’s resources are available to you. The riches in glory are available to you by Christ Jesus.
Be conscious of your spiritual heritage. Stop discussing about your physical ancestry. You are New Creation now. All that relates to your past history has been wiped out by the Blood of Jesus. You have a new history. You are born of God. His Life is in you. His DNA is in you. Hallelujah! Refuse to be bound. Insist and persist until you break into all that the Father has for you. Selah
