AWAKE TO GOD ;
(You’re Alive To The Mysteries Of God’s Kingdom);
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome;
TO THE BIBLE;
Romans 6:9-11 AMP C “…We know that Christ (the Anointed One), being once raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has power over Him. For by the death He died, He died to sin [ending His relation to it] once for all; and the life that He lives, He is living to God [in unbroken fellowship with Him]. Even so consider yourselves also dead to sin and your relation to it broken, but alive to God [living in unbroken fellowship with Him] in Christ Jesus.
Tracy had a question for her Pastor during Bible study and couldn’t keep it in any longer. “Pastor, I have this “knowing” inside me that God is closer to me than before. Why is that?” Tracy asked. “Well,” her Pastor began, “the day you were born again, your spirit became alive to God, and thats why you know Him as your heavenly Father.
This is so true! Legally, when Jesus died, you died in Him. But something happened afterwards: God raised Jesus from the dead, and you were raised together with Him. That was what happened when you were born again; you were awakened to God; you came alive in the spirit. Now you can understand the realities of Gods Kingdom; you can know the things of God, because youre alive to Him.
The Lord Jesus said youve been given the power to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of God (Luke 8:10), so now there isnt any spiritual reality you cant understand. Never again say, You know, I really dont understand the things of God; rather, you ought to say, Im alive to God; therefore, I have an understanding heart; I understand the things of God. Say this repeatedly until it takes a hold of your being.
You dont have to walk in darkness or ignorance concerning the Kingdom-life, your inheritance, rights, benefits and privileges in Christ Jesus. The Bible says, Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God (1 Corinthians 2:12). What an awesome blessing: the Holy Spirit is in you to teach you all things and unveil the mysteries of life to you. Glory to God!
1 Corinthians 2:7-10; Matthew 13:10-11
Dear Father, thank you for granting me the spirit of wisdom and revelation in knowing you; the eyes of my understanding are enlightened to the realities of your glorious Kingdom. Now, I know the reason you called me, and the riches of the glorious inheritance for me in Christ, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
