THE MIND OF CHRIST, OUR ONENESS WITH JESUS 2

KEY SCRIPTURE: Acts 9:5 KJV “And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.”

In our last study, we realised from the above key scripture that the Christian is mysteriously united to our Lord Jesus Christ.  Jesus stated clearly that Paul was attacking Him, although practically he was persecuting the Christians. Every child of God needs to get the full implication of that revelation. Galatians 3:27 states it like this Gal 3:27 KJV “For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.”. The day you accepted the Lordship of Jesus over your life and believed that God raised Him, from the grave after His death, you were baptised or immersed into Christ. Rom 6:3. The scripture in Gal 3:27 says through that act you have put on Christ like a man wears a garment.

On the flip side, we have not only put Him on, He is also living in us. Col 1:27 KJV “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:” Now He is in us and He is all around us or we are in Him. What does God seek to achieve by this? He seeks a complete takeover of our lives by Jesus. We, therefore, throw away our consciousness of our weak, defeated, sinful self to assume the superior, victorious, all-conquering Christ personality as the very one functioning on this earth in our name. From this position we are not the weak ones, always praying to be strong, we are strong in Him, and should not accept any thoughts of weakness. Remember the scripture advised us to be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.  The power of His might is the fulness of His power, including the totality of angels at our disposal. We should not in one moment feel vulnerable under the threat of Satan’s power.

The acknowledgment of our oneness with Jesus also means we stand in the place of authority, victory and security of Jesus. The scripture uses the term, COMPLETE in Him, who is the Head of all principality and power.  This is the reason when the bible spoke of our wrestle against supernatural forces of evil, the scripture kept using the word STAND. Our position is the very state of our Lord Jesus. He is never down. We are also never down. No matter what seems to be going on physically, never think you are being defeated. Our oneness with Jesus makes us partake of His victory.

 There is this term that most Christians use quite often. The word breakthrough. To breakthrough suggests you were down, defeated, and through some means you have broken free from that state, or limiting position. In the natural that is what it seems. This word is a little bit problematic because it places the Christian in the mental frame that is not really true of who He is, and gives Satan, or his devils an advantage over Him. Our master Jesus has broken through, when he rose from the grave. Rom 6:9 KJV “Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him”. If we are one with Him, then we broke through with Him. If this does not show in the physical, you do not accept a defeated mentality trying to succeed, but maintain your victory in Christ mentality and rather, RESIST the enemy who seeks to get you defeated. WE FIGHT FROM VICTORY TO VICTORY; NOT DEFEAT TO VICTORY.

Before the contest, we are already victorious.

CONFESSION

Thank you, Lord Jesus, for your victory over death, Satan, sin and sicknesses. I am one with you and so I am victorious over death, sin, sicknesses and Satan, Hallelujah. No matter what I face, or see in the natural I am never defeated. None of these things will ever reign over me. It is Jesus ruling over me. He is the Lord of my life, never the devil or anything of his. AMEN

THOUGHT; A VICTORIOUS MIND, MAKES WINNING EASIER
