OUR UNION WITH THE LORD JESUS
AND ITS MEANING TO US
Galatians 2:20; Romans 6:8; 2 Timothy 2:11
United in His Death
Romans 6:3,5; Galatians 2:20
THE KEY TO DELIVERANCE
Deliverance From The Opposing Forces Of:
Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus. ( Romans 6:6)
For if we have become united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall be also in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this that our old self was crucified with Him, that our body of sin might be done away with that we should no longer be slaves to sin. (Romans 6:11)
Therefore, my brethren, you also were made to die to the Law through the body of Christ, that you might be joined to another, to Him who was raised from the dead, that we might bear fruit for God. (Romans 7:4)
But may it never be that I should boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. (Gal. 6:14)
The Son of God appeared for this purpose that He might destroy the works of the devil. (I John 3:8)
Deliverance From The Opposing Factors Of:
A Sense of Condemnation:
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. (Romans 8:1)
A Sense of Separation:
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?( Romans 8:35)
Sense of Inferiority:
But by His doing you are in Christ Jesus. (1 Corinthians 1:30)
A Sense of Inadequacy:
In all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. (Romans 8:37)
Sense of Fear:
For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline. (2 Timothy 1:7)
When He had disarmed the rulers and authorities, He made a public display of them, having triumphed over them through Him. (Col. 2:15) Since then the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil; and might deliver those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives.(Hebrews 2:14-15)
United in His Resurrection
Ephesians 2:6; Romans 6:4
THE KEY TO HOLINESS
The Indwelling Holy Spirit:
His Spirit produces His Fruit! But the fruit of the Spirit is: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. (Gal. 5:22)
The Promises of God:
His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, in order that by them you might become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust. 2 Peter 1:3,4
As obedient children, do not be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance, but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior; because it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”
(1 Peter 1:14-16)
Therefore having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.( 2 Corinthians 7:1)
Romans 5:17; 8:37; 1 Corinthians 15:57
United in His Reign
Ephesians 2:6; Revelation 1:6
THE KEY TO VICTORIOUS SERVICE
Our Spiritual Position:
KINGS (The Right to Rule)
By His doing you are in Christ Jesus. (1 Corinthians 1:30)...Who is the blessed and only sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords.
(1 Timothy 6:15)...Much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One Jesus Christ. (Romans 5:17)
PRIESTS (The Right to Intercede)
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood. (I Peter 2:9)
SOLDIERS (The Right to War)
Suffer hardship with me, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus. No soldier in active service entangles himself in the affairs of everyday life, so that he may please the one who enlisted him as a soldier. (2 Timothy 2:3.4)
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroyers of fortresses. We are destroyers of speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. (2 Corinthians 10:3-5)
Put on the full armor of God, that you may be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. (Ephesians 6:11)
Our Spiritual Ability:
Truly I say to you, whatever you shall bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven. Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven. For where to or three have gathered together in My name, there I am in their mist. (Matthew 18:18-20)
For as many as may be the promises of God, in Him they are yes; wherefore also by Him is our Amen to the glory of God through us.
(2 Corinthians 1:20)
GOD’S GIFTS (The Gifts of The Holy Spirit)
And since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us let each exercise them accordingly. (Romans 12:6)
Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit.
(I Corinthians 12:4)
As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. (I Peter 4:10)
Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve. (Colossians 3:23,24)
For in Him all the fulness of Deity dwells in bodily form, and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority... Colossians 2:9-10
Abide in Me, and I in You...that your joy may be full. (John 15:4,11)
PROCLAMATION OF FAITH
I believe in the Son of God therefore,
I AM IN HIM,
Having redemption through His blood,
life by His Spirit.
HE IS IN ME,
is in Him.
To Him I belong
CREATION . . .
PURCHASE . . .
CONQUEST . . .
To me He belongs for all my hourly needs.
There is no cloud between my Lord and Me.
There is no difficulty inward or outward which
He is not ready to meet in me today.
I BELIEVE - I HAVE RECEIVED,
Not the spirit of fear,
But of POWER and of LOVE and of a SOUND MIND.
THE LORD IS MY KEEPER.
