IDENTIFYING WITH CHRIST
Decree: First ?Identity??then
week we studied the Identification Revelation that we were ?CRUCIFIED? WITH CHRIST?
let?s continue to look at our IDENTIFICATION
?Jesus answered them, ?Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days.?
Christ has set the Pattern for the Third Day ?Seed principle?, which is
expressed in death and NEW LIFE!
SOMETHING MUST DIE BEFORE IT
CAN BE RESSURECTED INTO NEW LIFE!
John 12:24,25 ? THIS is the one price of
Admission into the Third Day?only those whom Paul describes as ?dead in Christ?
will truly access and live in the Third Day!
only as we into His death, we can enter into His Resurrected Life!
?BURIED? WITH CHRIST
only were you Crucified with Christ, but you were also BURIED WITH HIM.
Jesus died, they took His body down from the cross and placed it in a borrowed
body was in that tomb for three days and three nights. God sees your ?old man?
buried with Jesus in that SAME tomb.
that time, His spirit man and soul went to hell. (See Psalm 16:10, 68:18, 88:6, Acts 2:27, 31)
was required in order for Jesus to pay the FULL
penalty of sin for us.
penalty is death to the body and death to the soul.
to the soul is separation from God in hell.
sees your spirit and soul separated from Him in hell through Christ.
sees us IN CHRIST each step of the
way as He paid the penalty of sin for us.
were there because we are IN HIM.
why we don?t have to pay the penalty for sin ourselves.
JESUS has already paid it for us!
why you don?t have to go to hell.
JESUS has already been there IN YOUR PLACE!
YOU MUST JUST DISCOVER YOUR
POSITION AND IDENTITY IN CHRIST?.IT IS DONE!!!
?RAISED? WITH CHRIST
Jesus? body didn?t stay in the tomb, and His soul and spirit didn?t stay in
Jesus NEVER sinned, death and hell
couldn?t hold Him (Acts 2:22-36)
after 3 days and 3 nights Jesus came forth from the dead in RESSURECTION POWER!
AndYOU too have come forth in Resurrection
Power in your spirit because you were IN
2 Cor.5:17 (Amp) ? ?Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is
a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and
spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has
who were dead in our trespasses and sins were RAISED UP WITH CHRIST in our spirit-man to walk and live in NEWNESS of life, victorious over sin,
Satan and the fear of death.
Gal. 2:20 (Amp.) ? ?I have been crucified with Christ [in Him I have
shared His crucifixion]; it is no longer I who live, but Christ (the Messiah)
lives in me; and the life I now live in the body I live by faith in (by
adherence to and reliance on and complete trust in) the Son of God, Who loved
me and gave Himself up for me.?
are wonderful spiritual truths to know, but how do we ?apply? them to our lives
on a daily basis?
?apply? them by simply ?REALIZING?
they are true and living within that ?REALIZATION?.
how Paul said it to the Romans:
Romans 6:11-14 (NKJ)
? 11Likewise you
also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ
Jesus our Lord.12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal
body, that you should obey it in its lusts. 13 And do not present
your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present
yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as
instruments of righteousness to God. 14 For sin shall not have
dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.
verse 11, Paul used the word ?reckon??This means simply to regard or consider
your IDENTIFICATION WITH CHRIST as
truth and live accordingly.
your old Adam-like nature was crucified and buried with Christ, it no longer
has power over your body.
Christ was raised from the dead, you too have been raised in your spirit-man.
now have the ?GOD-KIND OF LIFE? in
God-kind of life in you is more powerful than your ?old man?
you don?t have to be a slave to sin. You don?t have to yield your body and its
members to that ?old man?.
YOU HAVE BEEN FREED FROM ITS
SINFUL HOLD ON YOU!
you can freely yield your body to God. Your body can be an instrument of RIGHTEOUSNESS.
example: You can now think with the mind of Christ. You can use your ears to
hear the Word of God, use your eyes for love rather than lust, and your hands
to do the work of the Lord, and your feet to carry this Good News to others?
shall not have Dominion over you, but YOU
SHALL HAVE DOMINION OVER SIN!
RESSURECTION ?THIRD DAY? LIFE is ?hidden? in the death of
the ?flesh? life, the ?soul? life.
