THE REALM OF A NEW MAN IN CHRIST (1)

“Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high” Hebrews 1:3

LIGHT FOR NOW:You have all of Christ’s potentials and this guaranteesyour daily victory.

Jesus holds the highest office and sits on the highest seat in the universe. He is the Lord. He is the head of the body, and of His fullness, we have received grace upon grace. Isaiah 5:13 says “Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst”. The word “knowledge” here does not refer to academic, medical or scientific knowledge but it is pointing to the full knowledge of, an in-depth understanding of our redemption in Christ. This scripture has a far-reaching application in diverse areas of life. People, nations races have perished because they are in want of specific knowledge! Nonetheless, in the context of our discussion, believers are destroyed by false teachers and their doctrines, because they lack the precise knowledge of who they are in Christ and what Christ has done for them! For example, many believers are not aware of the new priesthood, hence, their faith is in a bottle of anointing oil. Others feel unworthy to approach God in prayers and thereby resort to deliverance and intercessory prayers in prayer houses. Sadly, false prophets have enriched themselves by capitalizing on the ignorance of the so-called Christians!

Christ had purged our sins and reconciled us to God – abolishing the wall that separated us from God. We now enjoy a peaceful relationship with God. By virtue of the redemption by Christ, we now have the God-kind of life. This is our new realm. “For In him, we live, move and have our being…” (Acts 17:28). Christ is our New World through faith. 1 John 5:4 says “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith”. You cannot be in Him and sickness still has power over you. You cannot be in Christ and feel so unworthy. God through Christ became our substitute. Therefore, Christ is our eternal guarantee for salvation. Your life is eternally engrafted in Christ. You have all of Christ’s potentials and this guaranteesyour daily victory over the enemies. This is the realm of a new man in Christ! Glory!!!

INSTRUCTION: Be born-again to enjoy your new realm in Christ.

PRAYER: Lord, I receive revelation to enjoy my new realm, in Jesus name.

QUOTE:The mystery is Christ in you.
