"And hath raised US up together, and made US sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:" (Eph. 2:6)
The position of the Believer is much higher, much greater than the natural mind can comprehend or understand. The only way to operate in this position or capacity to which we are called is By Faith; believing the Word of God exactly as it says, also allowing and relying on the Holy Ghost to get us to that place. For many in the Body of Christ, we believe in Jesus for the saving of our soul, but continue living our remaining days in the earth in normal human strength and accomplishment.
We don’t rely on the Word of God being fulfilled in us and we don’t pursue the life that God wants each of us to live. The revelation of the life in Christ Jesus is to be experienced NOW and in the life to come. The Church that He birthed was and is to exceed the impact and effect of all other religious groups that existed prior to, during, and after Jesus’ physical life here on earth. The Church is the most powerful entity in the earth! The Church is the visible manifestation of the Kingdom of God in the earth!
“…Upon this Rock I will Build My Church, and the gates (authorities, power, forces, sin, death) of hell SHALL NOT PREVAIL against it (See Mt. 16:18)!! You and I are not part of some temporary social club that depends upon its membership to exist or is on the threat of extinction due to lack of interest. No!!! If there were only two of us existing in the earth, the Church would be alive and well because Jesus is Lord and He’s the Builder of His Church! God always has and always will have a remnant in the earth and from that remnant will emerge a Triumphant and Glorious Assembly of God called the Church that will continue to carry on His work in the earth.
We have to COME INTO the understanding of who we are and Whose we are and live By Faith in the Revelatory Word of God by the Power of His Spirit. We are Risen With Christ (Col. 3:1) and Seated In Heavenly Places (Eph. 2:6). Our lives are hid with Christ in God (Col. 3:3). We now live by heavenly power and authority granted to us through the shed Blood of Jesus. Yes, we have to get rid of the worldly, sinful, demented, trashy, defeated, low-life mindset so that we can think and act upon the goodness of God’s Grace towards us for the higher, superior life.
Superiority is not about one race or person being better than another. It’s about God’s life for us being superior to the sinful life we’ve been living. As we experience it for ourselves there ought to be a compassionate desire for us to gather as many as possible to receive it for themselves.
