By this was the love of God manifested in us, that God sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him. 1 John 4:9.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
I gave you Jesus. He is not a loan, He is not merely a divine visitation, and not just an example to follow, He is your life. This is how My love manifested to you, that I sent My Son into the world so that you would live through Him. 1 John 4:9. I sent Him as propitiation for your sins, I sent Him as your substitute in bearing My just judgment and wrath, I sent Him to undo the works of the devil in your life, I sent Him to redeem you from the curse and restore THE BLESSING to you and to give you the promise of the Spirit, I sent Him to cleanse you and make you righteous, holy, blameless and beyond reproach before Me so I can have you with Me forever, I sent Him to you to bless you, heal you, empower you, and transform you into a new creation and reconcile you with Me—but above all I gave Him to you that you would live through Him a life of power, dominion authority, and BLESSING. In Him, I have made you the you that you dream to be.
I have kept you the unique you that you are, but I have clothed you in power from on High. I have, by My own doing for I was in Christ reconciling the world to Myself, not counting your sins against you but imputing them all to Him, put you in Christ Jesus who became to you wisdom from Me, and righteousness and sanctification and redemption.
When He died, you died in Him to your old weak and sinful self that Adam had demoted you to, and when I raised Him from the dead, I raised you with Him and seated you with Him in Heaven at My right hand. I see you, the unique and wonderful you I made you to be and planned for you from everlasting to everlasting, but I see the you that is you in no other way but in Him with all His merits, richness, wisdom and glory as yours. This is huge. Paul understood when he wrote for your edification, association and identification: “I have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer I who live (He did not leave you orphans), but Christ lives in me, and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.” Galatians 2:20. He laid down His life so you could take it up. He became poor so that by His poverty you would become rich. He bore your sickness and disease so you would no longer bear it. He took the old you and in Him I made you into a new you, more than a conqueror.
And He is with you always. Christ Jesus in you, your hope of glory. My glory being the manifestation of My goodness, My power, and My presence. And in Christ that is yours. You can live through this life triumphant, grown up into the full stature of Christ.
I want you to stop thinking of Jesus as outside yourself, as someone separated from you that you beg favors from and are not happy when not answered immediately. He is not just a Name you tack on to the end of your prayers figuring it will make Me to do what you have asked. I have already done everything for you and given you the Kingdom in Him. You are in, not out. You are not on that side any longer. You are not separated from Him as a sinner. I have translated you from the Kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of My Son. I have qualified you in Him to live the life of a saint in light. You are no longer a slave but a son. You are no longer subject to the spirit of fear, the father of lies. He is no longer your “god,” Jesus has conquered him as the Son of Man and put the devil under your feet. It is time you took authority. It is time you stepped up to know who you are in Christ.
I have given you Christ. The riches of the glory of this mystery were hidden in ages past but are now revealed to you. Colossians 1:25-29. In Him are all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge and in Him they are for you. Colossians 2:3. Therefore, as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so live (walk) in Him. Having been firmly rooted and grounded in Him, now you are being built up in Him and firmly established in your faith. Colossians 2:6-7. Draw all you need and more out of Him as a branch draws its life and fruitfulness from the vine. You can do nothing without Him but everything with Him. And the good news is you don’t have to do anything without Him. I have given Him to you. “If you but knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give me a drink,’” Jesus told the Samaritan woman by the well, “you would have asked Him, and He would have given you life giving water.” John 4:10. With joy you shall draw water from the springs of Salvation (Yeshuah). Isaiah 12. The water He gives you, that is, the Holy Spirit, becomes a well of water in you springing up to eternal life so that you never thirst again. John 4:13-14.
The pressure is not on you to perform, you now have Jesus to lean on and live in. It is like the difference of being in a warzone in an impenetrable tank or just walking through with no protection. It is the difference of being in the ark with Noah or out in the flood.
In Jesus you have nothing to be anxious about. All My promises, as many and as magnificent as they are, are “yes” to you in Christ Jesus. In Him, I have blessed you with every spiritual blessing in Heaven and have provided to your account all you need for life and godliness. Once you find this out, your life should change. And I have given you gifts, each one of you has a special Kingdom gift, to build up the Body of Christ, of which you all are members. I gave some as apostles, some as prophets, some as evangelists, some as pastors and some as teachers to equip you for every good work to mature you in the knowledge of Jesus Christ and to mature to be in all aspects like unto Christ. Ephesians 4:8-16. In Jesus you have been made complete.
You are complete in Christ. You are no longer incomplete and broken. You are whole and filled up to all My fullness by knowing the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge. Ephesians 3:19. Once you know My love for you as manifested in Christ Jesus there is nothing that can separate you from that love. There is no snatching out of My hand. There is nothing that can separate you from living to the full through Christ Jesus.
In Christ, I am with you. And when I am with you, no one can prevail against you, for no one is higher than Me and you are seated with Me in Christ. I did not spare My own Son but gave Him up for you, will I not freely give you all things with Him?
Begin to live your life through Him. He is My gift to you, but whether a gift is useful to you depends on whether you receive it or not and how can you receive it if you are not even aware of all that gift contains or not. In Him is life, life for the light of men. In Him are all treasures of wisdom and knowledge. In Him all My fullness dwells. I have given Him everything that is Mine and then I gave Him to you. In Him you have everything. It is all yours. Freely given, and it must be freely received. I will not force you to accept My gift, but I and all of Heaven rejoice when you do.
Come share your Father’s joy by receiving My Son and living your life through Him. It makes everything a joy—joy unspeakable and filled with glory. No matter what comes against you, I have given you Christ, and in Him you are more than a conqueror. He told you that you would have trials in this world, but to take courage and good cheer, for He has overcome the world and in Him, you have too. Greater is He who is in you than He who is in the world. As you have received Him as Lord so live in Him. Kingdom living is wonderful.
I love you. Do you even begin to know what you have in Christ? Isn’t it time you claimed your inheritance? You are joint heirs with Him. It has pleased Me to give you the Kingdom. It has pleased Me to seal you in Christ by the Holy Spirit. It has pleased Me to give you My Son. And it has pleased Me that you have received Him. Live through Him. Don’t let His death have been in vain for your life. Walk in a manner worthy of the calling you have received.
