REGARDLESS OF WHAT THEY SAY, THIS GOSPEL TRUTH WILL NEVER CHANGE; GOD IN HIS WISDOM PLACED US IN CHRIST, SO THAT WHAT HAPPENED TO CHRIST FROM THE CROSS TO THE THRONE, ALSO HAPPENED TO US WHO BELIEVED IN HIM.
IN CHRIST, WE WERE CRUCIFIED WITH HIM.
(Rom 6:6-7) “For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin—because anyone who has died has been freed from sin.”
IN CHRIST, WE DIED WITH HIM.
(Col 3:3-4) “For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.”
IN CHRIST, WE WERE BURIED WITH HIM.
(Rom 6:4) “We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.”
IN CHRIST, WE WERE RAISED AND SEATED WITH HIM IN THE HEAVENLY REALM.
(Eph 2:6) “And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus”
FOR THIS REASON, IN CHRIST, WE ARE RESURRECTED BEINGS IN UNRESURRECTED BODIES, JUST WAITING FOR OUR GLORIFIED BODIES WHEN CHRIST RETURNS.
“WE ARE SEATED WITH CHRIST IN THE HEAVENLY REALM” IS MUCH LIKE QUEEN ELIZABETH OF ENGLAND, IF SHE FOR INSTANCE VISITS THE PHILIPPINES, ALTHOUGH SHE IS PHYSICALLY HERE IN OUR COUNTRY, SHE IS STILL SEATED AS QUEEN OF ENGLAND. YOU SEE, IN CHRIST, THOUGH WE ARE STILL HERE ON EARTH, THE FACT REMAINS THAT WE ARE SEATED WITH CHRIST IN THE HEAVENLY REALM.
THAT IS WHY, THOSE WHO RECEIVED THE ABUNDANT PROVISION OF GRACE AND THE GIFT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS REIGN IN LIFE THROUGH CHRIST.
(Rom 5:17b) “Those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.”
IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!
