YOU ARE CHRIST – SONSHIP
When the bible says “as He is so are we in this world” the bible wasn’t exaggerating.
And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!”
Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ. Fears for the Church
God manifested in this world as His son in the person of our Lord Jesus Christ and He (Jesus Christ) is the perfect example of how the Father fore-planned the new creature to be – to become Christ.
The resurrection of Jesus brought about the manifestation of the new creation. Jesus is the perfect Model of the new creation and anyone who believes is made in and from Him. This makes such a person to be like Him – the new creature. He became a fresh being without any past record of sin.
Christ is the prototype of what God intends for the new creation to be. He is the perfect example of the type of sons that God wants all men to become. That is why our identity is Him and we can only function effectively as believers when we realize this. Being born of God is to be like Him and being like Him is to be like Christ, because Christ is the revelation of God Himself.
He came exactly like who He planned us to be – Himself. This purpose was achieved when the Spirit of God raised Christ in order to bring other sons into glory, begetting us as sons into His family/household.
This might be too difficult for so many to comprehend but the law of the new covenant never makes sense except spiritually discerned. It gets clear to you as your mind is continually renewed by the Word of God.
Who God made us to be by the accomplishment of the resurrection is who we are now and that is Christ Himself. God came in the body of man, became sin Himself and died not just to save us but to recreate us afresh in Himself.
Oh! How His spirit is in us crying Abba Father. We are not just God’s children, but legitimate sons of His, sharing in His inheritance as joint-heirs with Christ.
You are Him:
All power and authority are subject to you.
You have no past record of sin before the Father and any voice or event that speaks contrary to this is a deceptive scheme.
All provisions have been made available to you in Christ Jesus.
You are free from condemnation and judgment.
You cannot be oppressed by the devil.
What cannot be found in Jesus shouldn’t be found in you.
You are taking charge in authority because you are seated at the right hand of God.
I struggled to accept this reality but one day He said to me “I am you, you are Me, I am your identity, and you are my identity – Christ”.
I wrote this blog post to bring us into the reality that the nature of Christ as the Son of God is the prototype of what we have been pre-ordained to become as we come into God’s household.
Get into the Word and know what your identity is, you are no longer a mere human. The fullness, nature and character of God resides in you finding expression within you. We don’t just have the same make up with Christ, we have His full capacity.
and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together. From Suffering to Glory
Sons are legitimate heirs. We got this sonship when we believed an confessed the Lordship of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Spirit of God came fully and dwelled in us and became our DNA. As co–heirs with Christ, we share in the inheritance which Christ possesses also.
These spiritual blessings: being at the right hand of God, all power and authority being made subject to us, the joy of the Holy Ghost that springs from our inside, the newness of life that has abolished our past, being predestined for good works, eternal life etc are all proofs that we are partakers of Christ’s inheritance.
You are unstoppable!
