“How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)” – Ephesians 3:3-4
LIGHT FOR NOW: Knowledge liberates but ignorance destroys.
When you know and act on what you know, you will be out of bondage. Who you are in Christ will make no meaning until you know. The bible says “Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish” (Psalm 49:20). Knowledge in who you are is the first step to your freedom from all bondages. When you do not know that your place is inside, you will remain outside the gate of your honour. If you do not know that the veil has been broken, you will still be sick, poor, suffer rejection and be stranded. Ephesians 2:11-19 says “Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called uncircumcision by that which is called the circumcision in the flesh made by hands; that at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; and that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby; and came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. For through him we both have access by one spirit unto the father. Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God”. Now you know that your position is higher than the level of evil powers of your father’s house; you need to operate in that realm. Use your position to remind the devil where it belongs. Now you know, pick up the pieces of your life and become all that Jesus paid for. Now you know, rise from your ashes, dust yourselves and move into the splendor of the glory Christ has provided for you. Raise your hands and shout, “Now I know I am no longer a stranger but a citizen”. Glory!
INSTRUCTION: Make good use of your knowledge in Christ Jesus.
CONFESSION: Lord, thank you for revealing my identity in you to me, in Jesus Name, Amen.
QUOTE: Until you submit to Jesus, you can’t know; and until you know, you can’t be known.
