WHEN WE ACCEPTED CHRIST AS OUR LORD AND SAVIOR, GOD ANOINTED US; PLACED HIS SEAL OF OWNERSHIP IN US BY PUTTING THE HOLY SPIRIT IN OUR HEARTS.
(2 Cor. 1:21-22) “Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.”
THE HOLY SPIRIT IN US GUARANTEES OUR INHERITANCE AND WHAT IS TO COME.
(Eph 1:13-14) “And you also were included in Christ when you HEARD THE “WORD OF TRUTH”, the gospel of your salvation. HAVING BELIEVED, you were MARKED IN HIM WITH A SEAL, THE PROMISED HOLY SPIRIT, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory.”
BECAUSE THE HOLY SPIRIT DWELLS IN US, WE ARE NO LONGER IN THE FLESH BUT IN THE SPIRIT. ALTHOUGH OUR BODIES ARE DEAD TO SIN, YET OUR SPIRIT IS ALIVE BECAUSE OF THE GIFT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS IMPUTED IN US WHEN WE BELIEVED.
(Rom 8:9) “But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.”
(Rom 8:10) “But if Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin, yet your spirit is alive because of righteousness.”
BEAR IN MIND THAT IN CHRIST, WE RECEIVED GOD’S ABUNDANT PROVISION OF GRACE AND THE GIFT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS AND FOR THIS REASON WE REIGN OVER THE CIRCUMSTANCES IN LIFE.
(Rom 5:17) For if, by the trespass of the one man (Adam), death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ.
REGARDLESS OF WHAT OTHERS SAY, GOD CANNOT LIE!
THIS IS WHO YOU ARE IN CHRIST; AND DON’T LET ANYONE SAY OTHERWISE.
