In Ephesians 2:6, God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus. As children , we must learn to walk in the light of the truth.
In the epistle to the Colossians Paul explained to the saints the grand truth that they had, been buried with Him (Christ) in baptism (a spiritual baptism, an identification and union with His death), in which you were also raised up with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead.
We have been raised with a resurrection power, and now seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Paul spoke as though it had happened. Truly it has. It is a grand truth; we are self only blurred by our human perspective and reasoning so much that we can not comprehend its reality. Enough is Enough; there shall be no blindness to the everlasting word of God.
We are not only seated but Alive and raised up from any condition or situation of life that can weigh us down. Therefore, to be seated implies to be in God’s Domain instead of Satan’s. The domain of Satan is full of darkness, whereas, the domain of God is full of unending radiating lights; the Kingdom of God. As God’s Children, we are contained with spiritual life. Because we believe in God, we will not perish but have an everlasting life.
Being present in God’s domain gives us dominion and authority. We are seated with Christ, far above all principalities and power and every organization of the adversary. A seat with Jesus is a seat with wealth. It gives us; security, sense of belonging, life, financial prosperity, long life, protection, recognition, excellence, etc.
Today, we learn of this new virus called Covid- 19; whose agenda is to eat us all up. Laughs! That is not possible.
Let me speak to this coronavirus for a moment. Hello Covid- 19, you are a mere disease in the eyes of the Lord. You are nothing but an error. You lie, you can not eat up our nations, you are not a God; how dare you cause people to isolate and stay calm just to clean you up. Who are you? How can you come and take our moments together as a people in this world. Your mission in this world is aborted in the name of Jesus. We have a God that love us so much. He loves us so very much. How dare you Covid-19; how dare you come in to our globe?
It is not enough to align to all precautionary measures made available to us all to stay safe; what we all need is to cast this demon out of our world. Get out of here you demon alias Covid- 19.
Covid- 19 is a creation of man, a creation of the devil himself. Whatsoever the devil creates is for destruction. Nothing good comes out of it. Little wonder why people still look out for a god that destroys.
I want to usher you unto the True creator himself. No other God will do. All other gods bow before Him. Our Lord God Almighty is the creator of Heaven & Earth. God has promised us in His word, to take care of us in times like this. Let ya come before our God in supplication, prayer and worship; exalting His name above every other name.
It is a restoration season. Keep your Bible in your first aid box and study God’s word even more. Let us come before God in repentance, bringing atonement for ourselves, our church, our families, friends, and our world. Our Heavenly Father, please forgive us all. We have sinned and fallen short of your Glory. Have mercy upon us Dear Lord. Come into our purrs and purge us of our sin. Thank you for raising us up with Jesus to be seated with you; in your Kingdom. Come and have your way Oh Lord. We proclaim your word for our life. We are alive and safe under the shadow of God Almighty. Amen.
Being seated with Jesus brings us total restoration and satisfaction. We flag off the flag of God’s goodness and provisions. We are excited that the world is uniting everyday like never before. Indeed, there is Joy in this Pandemic. The Joy of the Lord is our strength.
Are you seated with Jesus? God is inviting you today to come take a walk with him. The disciples of Jesus yielded to the call of Jesus. Being disciples of Jesus is beautiful. You get to seat with him right in the Kingdom of God.
