Good Morning Precious and Dearly Saint and Child of Our Abba Father!
Jesus is perfect theology! “As Jesus is, so are we, in this world.” 1 John 4:17. “I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: I in them and you in me.” John 17:22. “Those He justified, He also glorified.” Romans 8:30. “By the one sacrifice He has perfected for all time those who are sanctified.” Hebrews 10:14. “By His wounds you have been healed.” 1 Peter 2:24.
We have been healed, sanctified, perfected, glorified and been made one with Jesus, and are as He is!!! You won’t hear this in many churches, but it right in the scriptures! “And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 2:6. We had to have been completely healed and made whole to be like Jesus, to be inside of Him and to live in the heavenly realm right now!
Some people that this does not happen until we die and go to heaven. This is true but the Bible says that we have already died and gone to heaven! “Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above (heavenly realities, some versions say), where Christ is seated at the right hand of God (This place is heaven. The Bible refers to us being In Christ about a hundred times!) Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.” Colossians 3:1-3.
The problem is that we do not manifest all of this Truth on a daily basis. This is our problem! The Father has already blessed with every spiritual blessing in Christ Jesus! “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every blessing in Christ.” Ephesians 1:3.
In the Spirit realm we have already been given every spiritual blessing that exists in Christ and in the heavenly realms! We have been healed and made whole the point where we are as Jesus is! Our problem is that we are not manifesting this Truth on the earthly realm, so people stop believing this Truth and make up all kinds of others theologies to make for the fact that they cannot or have not manifested this Truth! People put their experience above the Truth of God’s word!
If we are not manifesting the fullness of Christ that has already been given to us, then we must do like Paul; “Not that I have already obtained all this, or have been made perfect (in his walk on the earth), but I press on to take hold of that which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on….” Philippians 3:12-14.
We forget our past inability to manifest the full Truth that we are as Jesus is, and we continue to press on to take hold of the perfection that has been given to us in the Spirit! People will pray for God to move to do something, all the while He has already given every Spiritual Blessing that exist in the kingdom of heaven. We just continue to “feast on the abundance of the house of the Lord and drink from the River of His Delights.” Psalms 36:8. We feast and drink of the delightful, abounding Truth of the Father’s infinite, all-powerful and supernatural Love that is always being poured into our heart by the Holy Spirit, no matter if we are manifesting the fullness Christ’s healing, wholeness, blessing, prosperity in the heavenly realms, or not!!
We have to take our eyes off the earthly realm and all of its circumstances, and fix our hearts and minds on the heavenly realities where we are as Jesus is!!!! This is how Jesus lived on the earth. “For the Joy set before Him He endured the Cross.” Hebrews 12:2. While going through the most excruciating circumstances that anyone has ever faced, He was our example on how to live during extremely excruciating times. He fixed the eyes of His heart on heaven; being with the Father and with all of us, being perfected as Him, in heaven with Him for all of eternity!
Will you and I do the same, regardless of the circumstances, even if we may not being manifesting the Truth that “We are as Jesus is”? Will we keep believing and keep taking hold of all of our spiritual blessings in the heavenly realms, even if we are not manifesting our healing and blessings? It takes the power of the Holy Spirit to keep believing when the circumstances of life scream contrary to what the Word of God says is true of us!!! SHALOM!!!!!!
