ALL THE PROMISES
are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us."
(II Cor. 1:20).
Christ! When we
received Christ placed in us at the Spirit rebirthing, then we received all
the promises of God in Him. Now positionally that is absolute truth.
However, unless the Holy Spirit has renewed our mind to know and believe
that it is absolute truth, we may not be appropriating or seem to have these
promises. That is not double-talk. That is the exact missing link to
the reality of receiving the promises of God.
Many Christians are attempting to find promises out of the Old Testament
scripture and applying them to the Church. We are told to rightly
divide the Word of truth (II Tim. 2:15). The majority of the Old
Testament applies to the children of Israel. The church is not
spiritual Israel. Israel was promised temporal blessings.
The church was promised spiritual blessings in the heavenlies
(Eph. 1:3). There is no wonder there is great disappointment with many
in the church. It makes no difference how much faith that you think
you need. If you are seeking God based on promises not made to you,
then God may not give it to you at all. There is no doubt, that God
gives us many things simply by His grace, whether we are operating with a
correct basis of His Word or not. God simply loves all of His Spirit
birthed sons, and in early stages of their walk often reaches out in great
and miraculous ways with His grace to give them what they request on the
basis of their knowledge of Him. There reaches a time in every
Christian's walk, where the Father expects and requires some love and growth
in His sons. The Father wants them to learn to trust Him in accordance
to the truth of the rightly divided word of God.
As Christians, we need our focus on
Christ. We need
to know and focus that Christ
us. As Christians, we need to have Holy
Spirit revelation that the Father put Christ
in us to operate in us and
through us in a shared
life. The Holy Spirit will renew the mind that
all things are
in Christ in the eternal realm.
