CHRIST IN YOU"

Christ in you, the hope of glory". Col. 1:27

The voice of the Lord is breaking through the traditional mindsets which have been passed through the generations and awakening a people in this hour to who they are in Christ and who He is in them. The revelation of Christ in us, the hope of glory is a scriptural truth that is revolutionizing the thinking of modern day theology and releasing a people into the fulfillment of their destiny. The mystery of mysteries of Christ indwelling the heart of man and that He is not just in heaven is not something new, but is at the very foundation of the church and was revealed through the Apostle Paul. Although revealed centuries ago, it is still remains a mystery to those to whom it has not been revealed.

As we look to Jesus Christ as the pattern Son, we see that the Father was IN Him and worked WITH Him. In John 14:9-12 Jesus declared,

"Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, 'Show us the Father'? Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works. Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves. Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father."

The Lord also told us that those that believed on Him that He and His Father would make their abode within them. Additionally He declared that He would send His Spirit which would empower the church. Today, Jesus is IN each child of God and is working WITH them. The principle of operation has not changed. The church is His expression within the earth, therefore we are being changed from glory to glory as we mature and grow in Him. It is so important that we begin to realize that we are the tangible, living, pulsating bodyflesh and bones and blood and brain of Jesus Christand He is accomplishing His will through us! The church is the fullness of Him who fills all in all! (Eph. 1:22-23). In His sovereignty, God has tabernacled Himself within man and become one with man.

We are a people of purpose and you are a person with purpose. We are a people with a destiny that can only be fulfilled in Christ Jesus. We were separated from our mother's womb (Gal. 1:15-16) for the Son of God to be revealed in us. God has put His nature within us and it is His plan to be revealed IN us, THROUGH us, TO us and WITH us. We have been born of God, Christ is in us, and now God wants to bring Him out IN YOU. He desires that when one looks upon us that they see Jesus, just as man saw the Father in Him. But it is not enough just for Him to be in us, He wants to be seen and operate through us. He wants our soul to become transformed thereby revealing His nature and substance. He wants us to reveal His essence of His Being through us. His highest for us is for us to come into harmony with His will. He has translated us out of the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of His dear Son (Col. 1:12-14).

Only a clear understanding of Christ within will release God to express Himself through us in an unlimited measure. It is that life (Jesus) within, when lifted up (revealed), that all men will begin to be drawn. We must learn to release and give preeminence to what God has placed within us. Christ is the treasure in our earthen vessel.

I don't recall who said it, but the following states it the best: "God's highest is to bring out all the qualities of God in your own soul, to bring out all the individuality that is in your life, not to submerge or destroy, but to change it, to energize it, to enlarge it, until all your individuality and personality and being are of the nature and substance and quality of God."

Think of the oneness of God's purpose. He is the Head and we are His body. He does not want to be our body, He wants us to be HIS BODY. He wants to be ONE with us! And I shall close with a final word shared with us by Apostle Brian Chavarria, "....CHRIST THROUGH YOU, THE MANIFESTED GLORY!" You may visit his website at: http://clik.to/Apostle
