Let’s look at some really good news ... Some revelation knowledge that just isn’t taught that much anymore … Generally speaking we as a culture and society need to get off the RACE IS THE NEW RELIGION TRAIN, THAT, IF FOLLOWED TO ITS END, WILL TAKE US OVER THE CLIFF… I mean “really” folks, isn’t there anything else to talk about in this crazy world, anything of substance? … Things that might be constructive, instead of all the destructive tactics being employed by those filled with hate … Those that want to control and take over the world only to destroy it … I know we are concerned with the here and now, (life is tough) but what about some things that have eternal consequences based on God’s word?
Read Colossians 3:1-4, pay attention to verb tenses, where does God say that you are now? ( if a believer) … If then you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on the things that are on the earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, WHO IS OUR LIFE, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory.
Some will say ” But I don’t feel like I’m in heaven”. “Well, rain on how you feel” (quote from B. Gilliam) … God says you are there and God cannot lie … Your “FEELER” IS THE LIAR … The old “rebel you” was crucified in Christ and buried. The “new you” was born, raised, and ascended into heaven where you are in Christ, totally accepted and loved.
Now, most of us ( because we are living our busy lives ), file these wonderful truths away … Which really does us no good … God calls us to die to our old techniques of living … These truths can become ours experientially … more later … Below diagram ( 5.2) pg 96 of LIFETIME GUARANTEE and inspiration for this post, from Bill Gillham’s wealth of knowledge …
