KEY SCRIPTURE: Ephesians 4:13 KJV “Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ”:
Among the many things that the fivefold ministry is to achieve among the believers is to bring all Christians to the measure and stature of the fulness of our Lord Jesus. Our Lord Jesus is our ultimate example. It is not even the apostles. We must not use any failure on the part of any of the apostles in the period of the Bible days as our standard. The Lord Jesus is our standard.
The scripture talks about every one of us getting to that high standard of our Lord Jesus Christ. As children of God we must stop wallowing in shallow waters to get deeper.
Please understand the call that we have. We are not attempting to become like Him. He is already living in us. (Col 1:26,27) We are one with His spirit,1Corinth 6:17 KJV” But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit”. The very Spirit that lives in us is Christ. We are like him in every way. We have the authority of His name to use. Mark 16:17 KJV” And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;” This authority in His name gives us audience in the Father’s presence like the Lord Himself. Demons will also give the same dread and torment in the mention of His name like Jesus was physically present.
The work of the apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers is to bring us to the awareness of these things. It will build in the Christian that level of the truth, that makes him unshakable in the face of any form of satanic activities. The children of God would go forth and deliver the oppressed. Dear child of God by the knowledge of all that has been said above acknowledge who you are and the immense provision of power available to you. Take your place and start blessing human lives like our Lord Jesus did. It is the Father’s good pleasure to have all His sons manifesting the same power and life of Jesus.
Thank you, Father, for all the wonderful provisions in Jesus. I am one with His spirit. I make use of the authority of the name of Jesus and every devil bows. Many who are held captive are set free and made whole. I am shinning all around. Praise the Lord.
