YOUR  POSITION  IN  CHRIST

 I PRAY THAT AS YOU RECEIVE THE WORD - GOD ALMIGHTY WILL USE IT AND BRING STRENGTH AND DIRECTION IN THE SPIRIT INTO LIFE.

            If the life of believer is to be pleased to God, he  must be properly adjusted in areas: 1. POSITION, 2. LIFE, 3. WARFARE. These three areas must be strong in the Lord:  1. POSITION, 2. LIFE, 3. WARFARE, and if believer falls short in any of these areas, his Christian Life will be weakened. The one is your Position in Christ, two is your Life in Christ, three is your Warfare in the Power of Christ.

Book of Ephesians speaks about three areas. Chapter 1, 2, 3 reveals our Position in Christ, chapter 4, 5 reveals our Life in Christ, chapter 6 reveals our Warfare in Christ

            Book of Ephesisns contains the highest truth regarding these positions.

Let`s read Ephesians 1: 17 - 20 : “ I pray, that the God, the Father our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him and the eyes of your understanding being enlightened, that you may know  what is the hope of His calling and what the riches of His glory of his inheritance in the saints. And what is exceeding greatness of His power to us who believe according to the working of His power, which He wrought in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and set Him on His own right hand in heaven.”

            The three things are here when we pray:

1. Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation. During the prayer you ought to ask the LORD:

Lord, give me the knowledge and revelation. Reveal me by Your Spirit Your Glory, Your knowledge, Your wisdom.

Second verse 18 “The eyes of your understanding being enlighten.” When we are praying that we will know who we are in Christ.

Third verse 19: “And what is exceeding greatness of His power to us who believe.”

 

 

 

Three things He is asking us:

1. That we will know God 2. Our calling in God 3. His great power in our life.

Each of us who believe, when we pray, should ask: Lord reveal Himself, Lord reveal the Power in my Life. Things will happen when you discover  your Position in Christ.

            Amazingly that prayer is prayer when: 1.You know God and you know your position in Him 2. Your Life in Him 3. Your Power of Welfare in Him.

True Christian must pray continually: Lord reveal that calling I have in You, Lord reveal Your Power with You. If you want to live victorious life it is yours. It`s  your choice. God will never force you to live that kind of life unless you want to live life.

You have a choice when you stand on the Word on that day. God cannot be blamed what can be happen in your life. What you have done with your life. It is your choice.

Everything in life is your choice. It is God`s will and God`s will and you choose which will to follow. Jesus said: “Not my will, but Your will, Father.”

Son of God made a choice, Jesus choose to die on the cross, because of God`s will before His own will. And He as man has disown will. Every one has the power of decision, you will to go with God or not. It is your choice. God give us the liberty in choice. It is wonderful: Life, death, blessing, cursing - it`s all your own choice.

            But now ,we believers can choose to know Him. It is my choice, I want to know my call, whether I want to know power of God. You are free to choose.

You have free will. But I have chosen to serve the Lord. I made a choice to go with Him. God doesn`t push you or force you. He simply ask: What is your choice?

Yes or No. I told Him that I choose Him, give me Lord according to my choice.

            God Almighty gave us the Position in His Son Jesus Christ in heavenly places.

And in your new birth all is to choose this position in heavenly places.

I AM SEATED IN CHRIST IN THE HEAVENLY PLACES.

IT IS MY REST PLACE IN THE HEAVENLY PLACES.

 

 

Your position No 1 is REST. In Christian Life we surrender what Christ did for us.

Christianity does not begin with standing, walking or running. Christianity begins with sitting. Most of us want begin with walk to want to impress God. But when we do, we get nothing, because we seek to receive by our work and we miss everything.

When we begin the Christian life in human nature it says: I want to do. God says: You don`t understand. It is done. Lord said: It is finished. It is big difference with Christianity and another religions. In Christianity the work is done. Nothing to do, that enjoy the work of the cross. We are seated in heavenly places. It is done.

Nothing to do, just enjoy done work of the cross. We are seated. It is done.

When we were sinners,Christ died for us and God raised us up with Him in Heaven.

            In Ephesians 1: 2, 3 Paul said: “Grace be to you, and peace from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed be the God our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ, who had blessed us with all spiritual blessing in heavenly places in Christ.” All means all blessings: You already saved, healed, sanctified.

Everything God promised you is yours by His promise. If you only allow God to give it

            The longer I live the more I discover, how easy the Christian life is with God and how difficult is to live it on your own. However it is easy when you allow God to do it and how difficult if you want to do it. The Christian life is impossible if you want to do but is easy when God does it. The human being cannot learn to just rest, we all try to do, we try to make marks with God. Prophet Isaiah said:

“All of your righteousness is in Me.” In Ephesians 2: 8, 9 Paul said:

“For by grace  you are  saved, through faith, and that is not of yourselves;

it is the gift of God, not of works, less any men boast.”

1. By Grace you are Saved. You have nothing to do with your salvation. It`s done.

2. It is a Gift of God. It is all what Christ done for you. It is gift from heaven.

3. Not of works, your works. You do not have to work for it. For we are His work.

The Christian Life from start to finish is based on Dependence on the LORD.

 

YOUR  POSITION IN  CHRIST  II

 

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who have blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.”  EPHESIANS 1: 3

All means all. In other word you already healed, you already sanctified, you already empowered, you already free. Every spiritual blessing is already yours by promise.

It is yours by promise if you only allow God to give it to you. The longer I live the more I discover, how easy the Christian life is, and how difficult it is to do it on your own. How easy it is when you let God to do it and how difficult it is when you do it.

Christian life is impossible if you want to live it, but it is easy when God does it.

We human beings must begin learn to just rest. We want to do, we try to make marks, but our Lord in Isaiah said: “All your righteousness is in Me”

All spiritual blessings are already just to be claimed.

“For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God; not of works, less any man should boast. For we are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God already ordained that we shall walk in them.” EPHESIANS 2: 8 -19

1. BY GRACE ARE YOU SAVED THROUGH FAITH

You have nothing to do with your salvation.

2. IT IS A GIFT OF GOD

All that Christ has done for you is a gift from heaven.

3. NOT OF WORKS, LESS MAN SHOULD BOAST

You do not work for your salvation.

4. WE ARE HIS WORKMANSHIP CREATED IN CHRIST JESUS

UNTO GOOD WORKS, WHICH GOD HAD BEFORE ORDAINED

The Christian life is from start to finish  is based on one principle:

Dependence on the LORD. This one truth: when you sit it means, you let

Him carry you. When you simply allow God to do it, to give you the benefit of salvation to enjoy. It is no limit to grace of God.

            Christianity is really simple. Just believe and enjoy it. We make it so compli-cated when it is so simple. Apostle Paul said in Corinthians: “ Do not let Satan to come and twist your mind but simply believe God and His Word with all the Promises.” You just have to trust. It is so simple. It is wonderful simple.

Sitting means rest and only when we rest we advance in Christ. We have to rest.

Let God do it, do not help Him. Book to HEBREWS 4: 1, 3 declares Promise of rest:

“Therefore, since a promise remains of entering His rest, let us fear lest any of you seem to have come short of it. For we who have believed do enter that rest, as He said: SO I SWORE IN MY WRATH, THEY SHALL NOT ENTER MY REST,

although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.”

We enter into God`s rest by faith and we are enjoy the benefits of cross by faith.

HEBREWS 4: 9, 10 DECLARES: “There remains therefore a rest for the people of God. For He who entered His rest has Himself ceased from his works as God did”

“ For we what have believed do enter that rest .” HEBREW 4: 3

Labour to rest in God, do not labour to impress God, to do any work.

One time I asked question: How I can please God? And the man of God said:

“Do not even try. It is not you can please God. It is God in you. It is His ability.

It is not your ability! When you totally exhausted God tells: Now, let me do it.

He waits until all your energy is wasted, He waits until you dead to yourself, then

He says: I do it. If you can not do it, God can. Just sit down and let God to carry you.

We begin the Christian Life sitting, and in rest. We labour to enter into it.

ISAIAH 30: 15 declares: “IN returning and rest shall you be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall you be your strength.”

The key to victory is rest. The Christian Life beginnings with sitting.

Remember God creates world in six days, on the seventh day Adam begins his life on earth. He begins this life on the Sabbath. God created Him on the Sabbath day, but when

He started his life it was day - seventh. God wants you to live in the seventh day, in His REST. Adam became to walk with God on the seventh day. He does not know His WORK. He just know to enjoy life. God did all of it and He said: Adam - enjoy it.

            God did not created man on the first day of creation and said to him - come and help Me. No, but when everything was done for Him God said: It is all for you.

Adam started his life on the Sabbath to enjoy this life, when God rested in the REST.

God said: come, for all things are ready. Just enjoy them and we begin our life in rest.

If you free from sin just rest and sit and enjoy your life. HEBREWS 4 declares:

“He who is resting is free from sin.” If you sit down, you will be free from your sin.

Quit fighting that sin by sitting down and allow God to fight it. Where are you sick and pray, and pray, and pray and nothing happen, but when you surrender, God will heal.

You must sit, not fight. Do not beg, do not knock, just sit and receive healing.

You`ve healed already, just walk in it, enjoy it from that sitting position.

            As long as I am sitting, I am under GRACE, moment I start walking by myself and try working out by myself, I am again under the LAW. You want to be under GRACE and not under LAW anymore - just sit down and allow God to do His job.

You must be sitting to be under GRACE, because EPHESIANS 2: 8 declares:

“For by Grace are you saved through faith, and that not of yourselves;

it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.”

If you want to be under GRACE - sit down and rest and start walking from sitting.

It is different kind of walking, walking in unity. EPHESIANS 4: 1 - 3 declares:

“I beseech you to have a walk worthy of the calling with which you were called.”

We walk from the sitting position “with all lowliness and gentleness, and meekness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavouring to keep unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.”

YOUR  POSITION IN  CHRIST  III

 

            Paul says: “Not flesh shall glory in His presence, it is not good thing in me.”

So do not fight, gave up and sit down. When you rest, you can allow outside source to carry you. Just relax. We begin the Christian Life in sitting and relaxation.

Isaiah 30: 15 - “For said the LORD: In returning and rest shall you be saved;

in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength.”

Be child again and let Him carry you. The key to victory is sitting down.

Let the Lord to carry you and enjoy the done work of Calvary. He said:

“In returning and rest shall you be saved.”

God created this world in six days, and on the seventh He rests. Adam was created at sixth day but begins his life on earth on the seventh day, the REST day. Again:

God created Adam on sixth day, but he started his life on the seventh day, REST day.

Your whole Christian Life is ought to be liven on the Sabbath,. Adam begins his life with God on the Sabbath. He do not know work, he just enjoy creation. God did all of it and then He said: “Adam, enjoy it.” God did not created man on the first day and said to him: “Come on and help me.” No. When everything was done, God said:

“ It is all for you.” Paul said in Hebrews:“For God created world in six days and on seventh He rested.” Adam begins his life on Sabbath. Luke 14: 17 says:

“Come for all things are now ready.” We begin our Christian life resting.

If you want to be free from sin, you just sit down, because Hebrews 4: 1 says:

“He who is resting is free from sin.” If you sit down, you will be free from sin.

Quit fighting that sin sitting. Sometimes we fight to get healed. We are begging to be healed. God says ”You do not understand - you are healed already. Enjoy it!

And now from that sitting position, as long as I am sitting I am under the GRACE.

The moment I start walking and working I put myself again under the LAW.

Do you want to be under GRACE - be seated and enjoy work done for you.

Paul declared in Ephesians 2: 8 - “For by grace are you saved through faith.”

            You want to be under the GRACE- just sit down and start walking Christian life from that sitting position in Christ. Do not put yourself back under the LAW.

It is different kind of walking. Paul said in Ephesian 4: 1 - “ I beseech you to have a walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with lowliness and gentleness with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love.”

We walk from the sitting position. It is different kind of walking. You can do it only in spiritual. Ephesians 5: 2 declares: “And walk in love as Christ also has loved us.”

Ephesians 5: 8 declares again: “ Walk as children of light.”

This walking means to display who we are in Christ. This walk is proclamation  who we are in Christ. Ephesians 4: 1 says: “Walk worthy of the calling, with lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love.”

We walk in the calling displaying the fruits of the Spirit. Ephesians 5: 2 declares:

“Walk in love as Christ also loved us.”  We can walk in love when we love God.

When you love God you can not allow adultery, fornication, covetousness, filthiness of the enemy on you. And then He said: “Walk as children of light.”

How do you do that? We are heavenly people sitting in heavenly places, we bring our heaven into our earth surrounding to the will of God. Let your life shine upon you!

To walk with Him means to display who you are on the earth in Him. Paul tells us in EPHESIANS 1: 19, 20 says: “That you may know what is the greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power, which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at the right hand in the heavenly places.” That mighty power is already inside of you.

COLOSIANS 1: 29 says: “Where I also labour striving according to His working, which worked in me mighty.” Labour does not to mean to walk in Christ. Labour means to display who we are in Jesus Christ. We strive to show who Christ is in us by the power of Spirit residing inside us. The secret to believers power lies in his REST.

That secret of the power that lies within me is sitting and resting on work of Christ.

When I yell to the work of Christ, all the power of God is mine.

            I am starting my life from the sitting position and display the power of God.

For only those who are seated can walk with God supernaturally. We sit with Christ in heaven and we are able to walk with Him on earth. We sit with Christ in heaven that we be able to walk with Christ before men. You can not walk before men unless you are in Christ. God never said: work, work, work for me, He said: “Rest in me,

come to me and I will give you rest.” PHILIPIANS 2: 13 says: “For it is God who worked in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure.”

Working out your salvation means display it to those who are around you.

 It is not to work for it, it means work it out. Don`t keep it - show it!

Shine your salvation, work it out! EPHESIANS 6: 14 tells about standing position:

“Stand therefore, having your waist girded with truth and righteousness.”

 The Christian experience begins with sitting which leads to walking and finally to standing. Word STAND means hold your ground, another word do not let enemy forces come back to oppress you. Paul said: not INVADE but STAND instead.

He said do not move into his territory, he said STAY in truth and righteousness.

You want to know why? Because it is al ours. The victory is won, the battle is won.

The Christian experience begins with resting, leads to walking and only then, when you walk with God, you can stand opposing forces of hell!

YOU DO NOT FIGHT FOR VICTORY, YOU FIGHT FROM VICTORY.

Satan has been driven out already from your life. God has given us new territories.

The victory is done. Jesus said: IT  IS FINISHED. God says: I gave you new places.

Now, hold to it. It is yours. Stand your ground firmly. But we must first REST in what Christ has done and walk in Him as ONE and stand in the victory He has won.

THIS IS THE MESSAGE OF VICTORY AND LIBERTY.

God gave you victory and liberty and all you do is to maintain it.

ROMANS 8: 37 DECLARES:

“Yet in all this things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us”

Do not fight for victory. You fight from victory.
