THE CHRIST WITHIN YOU
The fact that there is to be a great transformation take place in our lives through a relationship with Christ Jesus is a fact which is either many times completely ignored or so vaguely mentioned that no one hears it, believes it or wants to know about it. Some will say that this transformation takes place at the time of our physical death, but the scriptures declare that it comes about through the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ being activated into the life of the believer.
This transformation is spoken of as 'putting off the old man of sin and putting on the new man' who is created into God-image through Christ. The apostle Paul declared that humanity has already been translated into the kingdom of the Son, that he has already died, and been raised and seated together with Christ in the heavenly places far above all principalities and powers ! One cannot read the epistles of the apostle Paul and not see that The Lord Jesus took humanity with him from Golgotha to glory, and that man has indeed been already risen and God sees him now through the accomplished work of Christ Jesus. The glorious redemption of mankind through Christ has been watered down to just a story told, something we talk about and never see, because we have not allowed the finished work of calvary to become alive in our lives! Until the fact that you have already died and been resurrected in Christ Jesus dawns upon your heart and mind, and becomes a living reality in your life then my friend, you have not yet known him! Paul emphatically, speaks in the past-tense form here ; that is he states clearly that 'you are dead, and hid away in Christ! ( Col. ch 3; ver. 3.)..................ver. 9-10 ' seeing that you have put off the old man , and have put-on the new-man, renewed in knowledge after the image of his creator! Man is not in the image of God until he is recreated in and through Christ Jesus. The wonderful, awesome fact that we have been carried away in Christ is a fact which is settled in heaven before the throne of the Father, but man in his ignorance and unbelief has not allowed this fact to become real in his life, so he stumbles and falls , becomes confused and discouraged, and ultimately he looses his way . We find in Philippians ch 3; ver. 10 ' that I may know him, and the power of His resurrection; 'being made conformable to his death!
This means that Christ brought us there but this fact must become a reality to us by the Christ within. It was for this endtime people , this harvest time people that this awesome reality was to manifest itself! A new creation is coming forth from the womb of the mother church! We are being translated from the feminine spirit of the mother church into the masculine spirit of the Sonship of Jesus Christ, and nothing in this world or any other world can stop this process of the Holy Ghost to bring forth Gods fruit of the earth for which He has so long waited for!
This translation, this conformation, this transformation, is taking place in this very hour among those who have received the love of the truth more than a love for traditional doctrine. We are in a time when the Christ within must be allowed access to every phase of your life to take away and add to it as he chooses to mold and transform you into the new man of God's new creation.
If the Christ within is not allowed access to all of your life then He will surely depart because in this day He must appear in His true form as King of Kings and Lord of Lords , even in your heart and life!
Unforgiveness is something that can really hold us back from escaping the corruption of sin and living for God. Unforgiveness comes in many forms, such as bitterness, hatred, malice, holding grudges and resentment. It can actually block God's forgiveness of our sin and provides a foothold for the devil to influence our lives. Additionally, unforgiveness can plant a “root of bitterness” in us that leads to various damaging results (e.g. ruins the fruit of the Holy Spirit, stunts spiritual growth, contributes to physical illness). Like acid can destroy the vessel that holds it, so can unforgiveness destroy us when we harbor it.
Here are some key scriptures addressing our need to forgive:
3Take heed to yourselves. If your brother sins against you, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him. 4And if he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times in a day returns to you, saying, "I repent,' you shall forgive him." Luke 17:3-4 NKJV
14"For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Matthew 6:14-15 NKJV
"Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father who is in heaven will also forgive you your transgressions.” Mark 11:25NASB
“Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.” Ephesians 4:32NASB
God expects us to forgive others just as he has forgiven us. God, who is perfect, sacrificed his Son Jesus so that our sin penalty (death) would be paid. Because of our faith in Christ (and his sacrifice), God forgives us from our sin. If we then refuse to forgive another person for an offense, we are dishonoring the forgiveness that God gave us. God will hold us accountable for this as Jesus illustrated in the sobering parable of the unforgiving servant (Matthew 18:21-35).
The scripture says, “Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, ‘Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,’ says the Lord” (Romans 12:19 NKJV). As God's followers, we must submit our desire for justice to him and trust it in his hand.
This can be very hard to do, especially if someone has spitefully mistreated us or someone we love. Forgiving someone is not condoning what they have done, but rather, it is laying the case before God’s throne and asking him to deal with it according to his will. We have to remember that God saw the evil that was done. He knows how deeply we’ve been hurt. If we can come to the place where we’re willing to forgive the person through Christ’s love, we will be able to move forward and leave the burden of justice in his capable hands.
Are you ready to forgive? Not everyone reading this page will be ready to forgive the person(s). I encourage you to ask God to give you the desire and ability to forgive "from the heart" as Jesus mentioned in Matthew 18:35 NIV. Here is an example prayer: "Lord God, I recognize my sin of unforgiveness. Please help me get to the point of being willing to forgive those who have wronged me. Please give me the desire and ability to forgive. Thank you, Lord. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen."
Prayer to forgive others: Don't pray this prayer until you are ready to truly forgive the people who wronged you. God commands us to forgive "from the heart."
“Heavenly Father, you are holy and righteous. You are perfect in justice. I confess that I have not forgiven as you have commanded me to. Through Jesus Christ, I now forgive these people: I confess my pride and judgment of those people. Please forgive me Lord and cleanse me from my sin. Please help me to thoroughly entrust these people and the wrongs they caused me into your hands. I pray that your will be done in my life and in their lives. Please help me to no longer think on those wrongs , but instead to focus my thoughts on you. I invite you, Lord, into any painful memories I have concerning what was done. Please heal any wounds I received and help me to have your perspective on what happened. (Take time now to pray silently and receive from the Lord) Thank you, Father! In the name of Jesus Christ I pray, Amen.”
When we've made bad mistakes in life, it can be tempting to unmercifully hold ourselves responsible. This too is a way of trying to act like God as judge, inflicting the punishment of condemnation on ourselves. Just as God has forgiven us for our sin, we need to forgive ourselves for our sin as well. When we release ourselves from this self-judgment, we will free ourselves to become the new person that God intends us to be.
Here is an example prayer: "Heavenly Father, I confess that I have unmercifully held myself in judgment concerning. I forgive myself for my role in that situation. Please cleanse me of all self-condemnation by the blood of Jesus and restore in me a healthy self-esteem. Thank you, Lord for forgiving me and empowering me to live for you as a new creation. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen."
Having forgiven others, and ourselves, we must now walk forward and resist the temptations to revisit the unforgiveness. This will likely require us to exercise authority over thoughts and persistently make them obedient to Jesus
How are you doing this week. If you need any help or prayer request, let me know. We are close to x mass, and some of you might be feeling the Holiday Stress. Maybe this will help
One of our greatest needs is to know that we are loved. Each one of us has to feel deep down in our heart, that someone loves us and cares for us.
This is how God designed us, He love each one of us with a passionate intensity too deep for words. God created human beings with fellowship in mind, first with Himself, and then with each other. But we can't love each other, until we have ourselves experienced the Love of God.
God seeks our surrender, we surrender to His call to be our Savior, Lord and friend. If we hold something back from God, we cannot know Him completely or fully experience His love. When we surrender to Him, we get all of Him. The more we get to know and love Jesus, the more effective our service will be.
The closer we draw to God, the more He will impact our lives.
Jesus calls upon His followers to reject the natural human inclination toward self. The first step is to submit and surrender to God our will, our affections, our bodies, and our lives. Our own pleasures and happiness can no longer be primary goals. Instead, we must be willing to renounce all and lay down our lives, if required. Peter admonishes us to "no longer live . . . in the flesh for the lusts of men," meaning we should no longer pursue wrong desires. Are we willing to forsake all, to give up everything including our lives? Our Christian duty is to deny our lust of the flesh.
How are you today, do you have any prayer request or need any help with your site. If you ever need to talk, you know where I am. If you get some time, use your emails and invite some people to the site. Here is something to help you, in your walk with Christ.
Mark 16:15 He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. 16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. (NIV)
In our daily walk through life we are bombarded with news of disasters, depressions, crises, and destruction. Sin in the world creates terrible circumstances. Every person who walks the earth does so in the sewer of the sin and satanic filth of the world. In the darkness of this sin and filth, came a Light of love, hope, and redemption. That Light is Christ the risen Savior. The persons who live in the sewer of sin and filth pay a heavy price for choosing to live apart from Christ. Persons of every culture, persuasion, economic income status, and nation need to hear about the Light of love who came from God. Every person needs to hear about Christ who came to set all of us free from the prison of darkness into which we were born. You are one person who can bring the Light of His love into the life of another person. You are one person who can show others the redeeming love and grace of our Savior. You are one person who can show others Christ came to fill every heart with love, hope, happiness, and peace. What great news you can bring to the world today!
