This message is the continuation of yesterday’s message.
5. Through the work of the word and the Spirit, the existence of the man of Christ in our spiritual man continues to be brought to experience the growth until we reach the fullness of Christ
If during this time our human nature continues to be influenced or molded by various aspects that originate from evil spirits or the Devil himself – and that will automatically cause the lives of believers to continue dwelling on things that are worldly, human or even religious.
Consciously or not, in fact everyday we keep facing a spiritual warfare; Devil keeps trying to attempt all kinds of ways to ensure that the man Christ in our lives will never grow and reach His fullness in us! Even though we have become a new creation but the Enemy will keep using the world system and evil days, difficult times and wicked people who are in their control to condition our lives as believers or new creation always lives humanly, worldly or religious. Yet the longing of God’s heart is to bring us as believers to live our days divinely! We live our days the same as when Jesus Himself lived His days on earth!
6. In the word we receive from God there is a dimension of divine life that will bring us to get connected with the spiritual dimension where the Father has provided and enabled us to function in His divinity.
John 6:63 (NKJV) It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.
As long as we want to persevere to keep disciplining our mind or imagination by using the word – we imagine the word we receive and each time our mind starts to ‘wander again’, we push to refocus and reimagine the word; even we do it by praying in tongues until our emotion revived; to be blazing, without us realizing it, we are actually injecting the dimension of spiritual life that conditions our man of Christ in our lives begins to grow. At the same time, all the forms of worldly pattern that are still left in our lives ‘totally burned down’ by the fire of the Holy Spirit which makes our hearts be blaze.
7. Through the occurrence of the work of the word and the Spirit in our lives, God provides every spiritual nutrient that is needed by the man of Christ in our lives to be able to continue growing until reaching the peak of His fullness in our lives
The desire of God’s heart is to bring every believer or new creation to manifest the same divine life that Jesus had when He lived on this earth. Through what He did, all forms of the work of Devil and Death on earth continue to be destroyed.
1 John 3:8 (NKJV) He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.
When a believer or new creation continue to focus on growing the dimension of ‘man of Christ’ that is in him, Father will begin to use his life to swallow up the various manifestations of death – whatever their form and level – that he meets in the lives of others whom interact with himself, in victory!
My prayer and hope, let once again every believer be brought to realize that there is an existence of the ‘Spirit of Christ’ in his life; that is a ‘divine seed’ that will bring every believer or new creation to manifest the fullness of Christ in their daily lives. #ILoveGod
