Ephesians 1:22-23 (NLT): “God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church. And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with himself.”
The Church Is The Body of Christ: “It is made full and complete by Christ himself.” The Church isn’t a building, a club, a program, or a religion. The Church is The Body of Christ!!! There is “No” Authority That Supersedes God’s Authority!!! China has been locking people down again—It’s almost impossible to eat at a restaurant in Wuhan, and what about the Church? Be prepared for a repeat as we get closer towards the election.
We Are Seated With Christ in Heavenly Realms!! Ephesians 2:6 (NLT): “For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus.” Stop sitting in circles that contradict the word of God. Stop sitting in circles that pull you from your purpose. Stop sitting in circles that complain about everything.
Where We Sit Determines What We See! Psalm 1:1-3 (NKJV): “Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper.” Stop seeing yourself as cursed when God says you’re Blessed. Stop seeing your life as a series of ups and downs when God says you’re Planted. Stop seeing yourself as you’re going to be broke when God says you will Prosper.
What You See Is What You Secure! When We Are United with Christ We Can Never Be Divided By The Enemy! Romans 8:38 (NLT): “And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.”
In Closing, Philippians 1:6 (NASB1995): “For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.” We Are Not Only Seated In Heavenly Realms But Seated With Christ At The Right Hand of God! “The Right Hand of God”: A Figure of Speech That Symbolizes God’s Ultimate Power and Authority. You need to know You have Authority in Christ—It Needs To Be Activated. The devil does not want you to know your place.
Satan Knows Where You Stand—If You Don’t Know Where You Are Seated
