The revealing of Christ
All the spiritual growth of a Christian comes as he/she “presses” in from one level of awareness to another. Are you ready to “press” into another level of revelation (revealing) of Christ? God has a better plan than many of us have been experiencing in our Christian walk. The false idea is that Jesus Christ is not in charge of my spiritual life, and I can go on living as usual. Joshua told the people…. “We`ve never been this way before.” The Christ-Life message has one intention…..To fulfill what God our Father has always wanted for us by giving us a greater understanding of who we are in Christ so that we can “go on” into the “FULLNESS” of the Christ-Life. The written Word of God mixed with faith is the key. It is only as we see Christ as “The Word” that we are able to become who He says we are In HIM, and HE is able to become who HE says HE IS….IN US. As we continue to study “present truth” each of us will begin to sense, by The Holy Spirit, Christ`s Life surging through us and touching the world.
Our whole concept of Christian living has been false
That is why Scripture says in Eccl. 7:8……”Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit (spiritual) is better than the proud in spirit (natural). Many Christians believed God was able to save them, but few are able to believe Him to KEEP them. And because of this “selling-God-short” mentality, these folk are constantly “fainting in the day of adversity because their strength is SMALL.” The Gospel of separation that has been preached to us for all these years hinges on the preacher being able to get us together with God. Therefore, the success of ministry have been dependent upon getting a person to Christ, buying them a Bible and then leaving them stuck in salvation, never progressing and possessing by not understanding their spiritual processing.
Over the years
The greatest, most freeing truth in the Word of God which is our ‘IN CHRIST’ position has not been taught to us. Probably some of these ministries could not help themselves, because the Lord had not revealed these truths to them, but they are in the Bible and the Holy Spirit, according to 1 Cor. 2:9-10, will reveal truth to anyone who is seeking HIM. Remember, TRUTH is a PERSON. Jesus said….”I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE…” So there are multitudes of Christians who have not experienced the SPONTANEOUS LIFE of God in their Christian walks. So they remain easy prey for the adversary and he continually attacks their spiritual walk, causing them to live defeated and frustrated lives.
GOD SEES US AS CHRIST IN HUMAN FORM, AND HE SAYS THE SAME THING ABOUT US AS HE SAID ABOUT HIS SON……”THIS IS MY SON/DAUGHTER IN WHOM I AM WELL PLEASED….”
We are overcomers
A consistently victorious/overcoming life happens to a person who begins to see themselves as God sees them….who begins to see themselves IN CHRIST. Gone forever are the spirits of judgment and condemnation, inadequacy and hopelessness, defeat, and discouragement, confusion, chaos, and joylessness. Gone forever is doubt, fear and unbelief. Gone forever is self-pity as a result of sickness, shame, sin, and misfortune. Creatively, we begin to manifest the Life of Christ in everything we put our hands to. This message is not meant to help you to be victorious because you already are victorious. You are IN CHRIST and Christ is the ‘Christian’ in you. You just are not aware of it yet. This teaching is to help you, the NEW CREATURE, to begin JOYFUL, CREATIVE, Christ-Living.
Too many of us have given up on experiencing consistent joy and peace in our Christian walks. Too many of us feel
that living has lost its excitement. Too many of us have not found purpose in this life. Why is this? Why do people give up on God so easily? Why do people give up so easily on themselves? Why are Christians giving up so easily on life itself?
”A beautiful mind”
The movie starred Russell Crow and it depicted a real-life story about a mathematical genius who had been creatively hindered all of his life because he heard and saw people who weren`t there. We are exactly the same! We are all geniuses and co-creators in our God-given spheres of influence (purpose), but we are hindered because we hear and believe the wrong voices. God has given us a wonderful, beautiful mind because we have The “mind of Christ” according to scripture But the rewards of our “creative mind”(the mind of Christ) are all on hold because instead of pursuing God`s purpose for our lives, we are continually pursuing those other voices while trying to convince everyone around us that we are just regular folk like everybody else. We allow those voices to convince us that there`s nothing special about us and then we go on with life thinking negative (lies) and being negative Christian who is full of sin (a mediocre life).
The creative Christ Life
Therefore, as a pastor-teacher, I`m extremely excited about sharing truths about the “creative” Christ Life. I feel that
you can experience what I`m experiencing……the REVELATION of Christ IN ME…..the Hope of Glory…..”
THINK ON THIS….THE VERY ONE WHO MADE THE WORLD AND THE VERY ONE WHO CONTROLS THE WORLD AND EVERYTHING IN IT LIVES IN YOU. THEREFORE, EVERY OBSTACLE IN YOUR LIFE HE PUT THERE SO HE CAN OVERCOME IT (IN YOU FIRST). He truly is the overcomer IN YOU.
You must, in order to live creatively, concentrate ALL of YOUR efforts on making Jesus Lord of your life. Begin by
giving ALL the Glory to God for EVERYTHING (1 Thess 5:12-18). Your every accomplishment can be seen as Jesus Himself working through you. Your every word can be Jesus speaking through you. Your positive actions, your positive feelings, your reaction and responses to life`s situations should be Jesus qualities coming through you. Start looking at your shortcomings and failures as opportunities pressing you more into HIM. Look at your mistakes as opportunities to manifest His Glory, as holes in your vessel to pour out His Power. Paul said…”I WILL GLORY IN MY WEAKNESSES.” Begin to see Jesus as you and you as Him. I didn`t say it, but Scripture says…..”As He IS, so ARE we in this world (life).” 1 Jn 4:17
Your true identity is In Christ
YOU MUST BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND THE AWESOME POWER IN YOUR MIND. YOU, YOURSELF, MUST DECIDE EVERY DAY WHO YOU ARE. WITHOUT DAILY SEARCHING THE SCRIPTURES AND SPENDING QUIET TIME BEFORE HIM, THE HOLY SPIRIT CANNOT REVEAL JESUS IN YOU!
The Christ-Life is something different in each of us. Sad to say that many of us think His manifestation of Himself in us looks the same in ALL of us. You continue to struggle along in your own idea or version of Christianity, and never experience the FULLNESS of Christ in your life. You seem to prefer your own version of who you are or someone else’s version of who they think you are, or that voice in your head of who it says you are (defeated by sin and the devil), rather than who God says you are in His Word. Living the Christ-Life should be an everyday adventure for each of us because “WE NO LONGER LIVE, BUT IT`S CHRIST LIVING IN US.” (Galatians 2:20). When you really catch the VISION that ALL you`ve ever wanted to do and every place you`ve ever wanted to go is the longing of Christ IN YOU and not you, and it`s already been appointed for you to do. JUST STEP OUT IN FAITH AND DO IT. The way has already been made…….HE SAID…..”I AM THE
