The Apostle Paul wrote about the fact that a significant number of people know about God but refuse to honor Him and, having given up the truth about God for a lie, continue shameful ways, so God lets them follow their own evil way (Romans 1:21-32). Yet GOD is LOVE and He has spoken to mankind in many ways and through His prophets; until the mystery of His plan to reconcile us to Himself was revealed in Christ Jesus. Now (this day), the LORD God calls us to Himself through the One Who is “the faithful and trustworthy Witness, the Firstborn of the dead [first to be brought back to life] and the Prince (Ruler) of the kings of the earth. . . .Revelation 1:5 (AMP). The earthly ministry of Jesus the Anointed One and His Anointing showed mankind how we were created to operate with dominion to replenish the whole (far beyond the Garden of Eden) Earth; He came as the Embodiment of God’s Word – The Living Word.  

Those “in Christ” are sons & daughters of God by the redemptive work of Christ Jesus; we are ambassadors of Christ; we are responsible for developing our own “measure of faith” given (Romans 12:3); we are to manifest even greater works by faith (John 14:12); we are to BE light in every situation (Matthew 5:14-16); we are gifted with everything necessary for life and godliness on this side of Heaven (2 Peter 1:1-3); we are the elect who encourage each other in the things of God and in the way of Abba Father (Hebrews 3:13); we are doers enabled by God’s power:  

  • that incomparably great power for us who believe, as demonstrated by God’s mighty strength exerted in Christ Jesus when God raised Him up from the dead, and seated Him at His (own) right hand in the heavenly realms . . .Ephesians 1:19-20  
  • the strengthening power by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit – God’s Spirit; and the power to be rooted in the God-kind of love and grasp the full dimensions of Christ Jesus’ love, that we may be filled to the full stature of God (Ephesians 3:16-19).  
  • to (God) Who is able to do immeasurably more than all we can ever ask or imagine, according to His power at work within usEphesians 3:20  

May that bestowed to Christ Jesus (which we too have because we are “in Him”): “power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessingRevelation 5:12 (KJV), and The Blessing of Abraham (material) with the fullness thereof by the redemptive work of Christ Jesus (material + spiritual/authority), result in an overflow of honor & glory & praise to God the Father, with thanksgiving in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
