KEY SCRIPTURE: John 3:31 ISV” The one who comes from above is superior to everything. The one who is of the earth belongs to the earth and speaks about earthly things. The one who comes from heaven is superior to everything.”
Who comes from above? Our Lord Jesus came from above. He did not come in the form in which He went up, according to Acts 1:11.
He came as the word of God that became a man or flesh.
It was the Holy Spirit that formed in Mary His mother. Jesus who came from above is the word and from the Spirit of God. The bible says He that is from above is above all. The word above means superior, greater or mightier. _To be above means He should not be subjected or dominated by those things that are below_ Him.
We said in our discussion above that, Jesus is the word and from the Spirit of God. Every Saint is born of the word and the Spirit. Every Saint also comes from above. To be born again means to be born from above. The word again is the Greek word ‘ anothen’ and it means ‘from above ‘ or from a ‘ higher place’ We as saints proceed from a higher place. This means we are made of a superior product. The following are the source of which we are made.
1 We proceed from God or we are the offspring of God, 1 John 4:4.
2 We were born of the incorruptible word of God.1 Peter 1:23
3 We were created in Christ Jesus unto good works. Eph 2:10
4 We are partakers of the divine nature, and have escaped the corruption in the world through lust.2 Peter 1:4
James the apostle describes our source in the following manner James 1:18 KJV” Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of first fruits of his creatures. Firstfruits means, the first and the best.
As people from above, our grounds for victory in this life, is our unflinching faith in our FATHER.
Now God’s word reveals that if we are from above then we are above all. This implies we are superior to Satan himself and every agent of his. (Please meditate on these things) His works of sin, sicknesses and all forms of darkness should not control us. We are privileged to exhibit a very high standard of uprightness and excellence in all we do. Phi 2:15 KJV” That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
We must maintain a consciousness of victory and put away every thought of failure, fear of every form. As one from above, you are a blessing and so make your life blessing to all.
THOUGHT: THE LORD JESIS THOUGHT OF HIMSRLF AS THE ANSWER AND NEVER A PROBLEM, AND THAT IS WHAT WE ARE.
2Pe 1:4 KJV ” “Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”
