This is the most powerful Revelation that I have had in my Christian walk. I got this study guide, and all the study guides, but really went deep into it last summer. It was one of the very first times that I got a real revelation of who I am in Christ Jesus. It wasn’t just the words of the study guide, but it was the Holy Spirit illuminating the words by revelation in a way that I had not known before; it was an intimacy with Him that is the evidence of the reality of Jesus Christ.
One of the most powerful verses about who we are in Christ Jesus comes from Colossians 2:9-10, and I prefer it in the Amplified because the Amplified really opens it up. “For in Him the whole fullness of Deity (the Godhead) continues to dwell in bodily form [giving coplete expression of the divine nature]. And you are in Him, made full and having come to fullness of life [in Christ you too are filled with the Godhead-Father, Son and Holy Spirit-and reach full spiritual stature]. And He is the Head of all rule and authority [of every angelic principality and power].” These verses are incomprehensible in the carnal mind. We cannot understand them from the natural point of view. We can only understand them from the reality of who we are in our Spirit.
I, also, love Romans 8:37, “Yet, amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surprising victory through Him Who loved us.”
Yet, there are verses that are even so powerful that put us in unity as one with the Almighty God In Christ Jesus. 1 Corinthians 6:17, “But he who is joined to the Lord is one Spirit with Him.” John 10:30, “I and My Father are one.” And these verses John 17:20-23, “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in US, that the world may believe that you sent me. And the glory which You gave Me I have given THEM, that they may be one just as We are one; I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that you have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.”
There is no foe, no trial, no tribulation that can contend with or defeat the man/woman who perceives and understands that he/she is united as one with the Almighty God in the Lord Jesus Christ.
