KEY SCRIPTURE: Colossians 1:27 ” To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:”
Our key scripture says the mystery which has been hidden since the creation of the world is now made known to men. This mystery is Christ in all those who believe in Him. This experience is the hope of glory.
God our Father has planned that one day all mankind or all those who will come to faith in Jesus Christ would have the Christ in them. Christ means the anointed one. It also means the anointing. This refers to the Spirit of God that worked in Jesus and did all the works, was to reside in men as well.
The scripture said in Acts 10:38 that, how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed of the devil for God was with Him. This anointing that was on Him was to reside in all men who would acknowledge Him as Lord over their lives.
In Luke 4:18, the Lord said the Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach the good news to the poor…… This anointing the Lord talked about was to be in all those who would submit to His Lordship over their lives .They would also have this anointing to preach to the poor, bind up the broken-hearted, preach deliverance to the captives and many more.
Well this is a news too good to be true. It is indeed a great mystery unveiled. To appreciate what this implies can turn supermen out of most of us. There is nothing that this anointing cannot do. There is no power greater than this anointing. This meant those who come to terms with the real implications of this fact CANNOT be over powered by any form of satanic oppression of any sort. Note: it is the truth you truly embrace or submit to that totally rule you and manifests completely in you. Christ in you is indeed the hope of glory. You can say with Paul ‘I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me’.
You can also overcome every challenge through Christ who lives in you (1st John 4:4).
Christ is in me, what a truth to be aware of. I am made an instant champion in life that conquered in life has now taken His abode in me. Thank you Jesus.
