All Life Is in Jesus Christ
Paulís prayer for the Christians at Ephesus (Eph.3:15-17) indicates that we get power from Christís Spirit when His Spirit unites with our spirit. This happens the instant we believe on Him and it makes us become a brand new spiritual being; A new creature the Bible says. (2 Cor. 5:17) We then retain the ability to be strengthened in our minds and bodies, by that same Christ Like newborn inner personage, which possesses the same power as that which raised Jesus from the dead. (Rom. 8:11) At the instant we believe, we are made perfect in this new spirit, but we must work out the transformation of our soul (mind, will, emotion) little by little. ( Phl. 2:12) The next step does not happen automatically. We start this next step by allowing the word of God to become truth to us. In other words, just believe what it says, and then apply what it says to the way one thinks. (1 Th. 2:13) Never mind trying to do what it says immediately, though. First we must change the way we think and then our actions will automatically follow. ( Pro. 23:7) To increase in power and grow stronger in mind and body, we start by accepting what the word of God says about us. Here are just a few scriptures that do that. (Phl.4:13)(2 Pe.1:3)(Rom. 3:22)(Rom. 8:35-39)(Rom. 5:17)(Rom. 10:4)(1 Co. 2:16)(1 Pe. 2:24)
The positive results obtained, as we exercise this gift of faith, which comes by mediating on God's word, (Rom. 10:17)(Faith without works is dead) (Eph. 2:8) (James 2:26), strengthens the Godly resolve in our mind with every truth that we make ours. Soon, We become able to see tangible results as this power of faith breaks the chains, which hold us down. Now, as we overcome obstacle after obstacle in various situations we face, our mind continues to grow stronger and stronger, building up more and more trust in Christ, which allows us to move higher and higher into greater and greater freedom, from the chaos that surrounds us in this present world. As this process continues, we also exhibit more and more of Godís love to others around us. It really is a remarkable thing to experience. This is a growing process, not a one time event, which Jesus, himself, went through. (Hebrews 5:8 - Though he was a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered.) (Luke 2:40 - And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.)
As we witness the victorious results of these conquests of faith, we begin to experience the essence of that applied knowledge in the natural. We begin to know (experience) the love that God has for us. (1John 4:16 - And we have known and believed the love that God hath for us. God is love; and he that dwells in love dwells in God, and God in him.) This experiential knowledge of that love, which John is describing here, will take us far beyond the mere intellectual knowledge (Eph 3:19) perceived through the five senses, and will begin to rule in our mind, to give us the ability to bring every thought, into captivity, unto obedience to Christ. (2Cr.10:5) These Godly thoughts then bring life to the many remaining dead, sin scared, portions of our mind, dispelling the old carnal characteristics of our personality. At the same time we become living examples for Jesus Christ to others around us. (Study 1 Cr. 13) The end result is the development of a mindset within our souls, like Paul had when he wrote Romans 8:35-39.
Proof that this process has been put into place in my life is the display of many miracles, including supernatural healings, deliverance from evil circumstances, salvation for all my children and financial freedom, to name a few. This spiritual life I live transcends this natural life, creating a everlasting heritage for my descendants, rooted in the eternal reality of heaven, which cannot be understood by the carnal mind. (1 Co. 2:14)
If fear is present in any given situation we face, it is an indication that this principle of Christ has not been perfected in that area of our mind where fear resides. Prefect love casts out fear. (1John4:17)
I am giving the reader basic principles that actually produce fruit in my own life. Understanding and putting these learned principles into action has actually saved my life over and over on the battle field, in the mist of certain death, in receiving supernatural healing for myself and others (Cured of incurable liver disease) , in my marriage, in being a father, in being a successful business owner and in becoming a beacon of enlightenment for all who choose to heed what I am saying here. These are not just words on a screen. They represent the truth which comes from the word of God, through Jesus Christ and I have seen their application work in many other people's lives as well. You are no different. They will work for you also.
