Well, that’s the word on my mind.
It’s really cool to see that some churches are beginning to teach about new creation realities. Our reality. The fact that the finished works of Christ has declared us righteous, justified and at peace with God. The fact that the believer is sanctified. The believer is one with God. The very essence of God is in the believer, meaning that the believer is the habitation of God.
Just read the epistles and see these realities for yourself.
Before, the problem was that people were teaching works. How that you need to do certain things to receive the grace of God for your everyday life or for you to “make heaven”. So we begin to wonder why it was called “grace” in the first place if we have to earn it.
And it doesn’t mean that soo many churches still don’t preach works and have put up mosaic law-like ordinances ignorantly. There’s still a lot of labour in the word and prayer to do with regards to this.
However, is it now a crime that we are teaching new creation realities in church ni?
I mean, things we should take responsibility for, we now account to the finished works of Christ.
I mean Christ died to save sinners. That’s all. The blood of Jesus was shed for the atonement of sins, reconciling people back to God. Nothing else.
But now as far as we are concerned, Christ died to give us money. Christ died to give us A-grades in school. Now have we become comedians.
Just think about this. Anything Christ finished on the cross is perfect and perpetually expressed in the believer. If it’s not a constant in your life, Christ did not die for it. For example, our righteousness is perpetual. The Holy Spirit is always in us. He never leaves. We are perpetually sons of God. We did nothing to gain it or sustain it.
But if you don’t read, you won’t pass your exams. If you don’t work, you will be financially poor. You need to attain to these things.
That means Christ did not die for them.
No more delusions. Read your Bible.
