1 Corinthians 15:22 “For just as all people die because of their union with Adam, in the same way all will be raised to life because of their union with Christ”
In Adams fall we all handed over our God given authority to have dominion over the earth. In the Resurrection life of Christ, we are new creations and our inheritance is waiting to be claimed. We perish because we don’t know who we are in Him and what time it is. We should all set our watch to “Kingdom Standard Time”. In Christ the Kingdom has come and its time for His will to be done in the earth. All things related to His purpose are accomplished by His presence. The Lord will only give you the measure of His presence that you are willing to jealously guard. The aim of the enemy is to defeat His higher purpose for our lives by robing us of His presence. In Him we can do all things. Apart from Him (The Vine) we can do nothing. BE who you are in Him. Who are You? What time is it?
1 Pet. 2:9 “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people”
A priesthood of kings, and a kingdom of priests! A company of overcomer’s, who have power with God and with men! As priests we have power with God, and as kings we have power with men. As priests we have “access by faith into the grace of His life”. Our holy standing is in the throne room !! As kings our power is the quickened and proceeding word of God that rules and reigns in all circumstances and over all opposition. As priests we intercede with God on behalf of men. As kings, we can impart life and power and deliverance to the captive and set the oppressed free. The foundation of this Kingdom is intercession. We reign by interceding. The power of His resurrection life only flows when we place ourselves in the field of need. Jesus said, “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore…” (Matt. 28:19). Jesus Said, “Ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you” (Acts 1:8).
Revelation 1:6 “And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen”
In Resurrection, He is King! and Priest! And He has designated His kingly authority and His priestly ministry to such as are of Him and in Him. May we “Know Him” in the power of His resurrection life. May we host the Life of our Risen Savior in the earth as Ambassadors of the King of kings and the Lord of lords.
