The denunciation of sins in the believer have been expositorially accentuated while the believer’s dominion through Christ’s redemption over SIN has been left unpresented, if not outright denied.
Preaching against world conformity, unbelief and lack of faith has been the practice of religious institutions that seek to keep individuals dependent on the existence of that system rather than equipping and maturing believers to take their place and genuinely function in a living, spiritual organism.
By means of His grace and sovereignty, Father is bringing forward the truth of what we are in Christ and how Righteousness and faith are available to those who desire to learn how to enter! People are catching on!
The Kingdom (functioning under the rule of God) litmus test is righteousness, peace and joy!
If believers are not made aware, trained to understand and realize the truth that ….
For our sake God made Christ to be sin Who knew no sin,so that in and through Him we might become [endued with, viewed as being in, and examples of] the righteousness of God [what we ought to be, approved and acceptable and in right relationship with Him, by His goodness],
….Peace will not reign in our existence but we will continue to permit divisions and strife to invade relationship with God, internally within ourselves and with others.
Peace is obtained by being able to effectively remove the cause or source of chaos and disorder. Through Christ and learning to partake of the Divine Nature imparted to us, the capability to “reign in this life” is present within every believer individually and every corporate expression so that peace is resident.
Dwelling in such peace, both individually and corporately, brings forth the joy found only in submission to Father’s rule.
If a believer is not experiencing the reality of right standing with God, peace and joy, chances are they have submitted themselves to a religious system that keeps them from entering the Kingdom.
Christ has set us free to live a free life. So take your stand! Never again let anyone put a harness of slavery on you. I am emphatic about this. The moment any one of you submits to circumcision or any other rule-keeping system, at that same moment Christ’s hard-won gift of freedom is squandered. (Galatians 5:1-2)
You were meant to LIVE for so much more and my prayer for you is that you discover the Way and be empowered to walk in it!
Keep your peace!
