THE POWER OF GRACE INCLUDES:
4. Power to sit together with Christ in heavenly places.
This is the position of ultimate dominion where everything will be under your feet. The cross of our Lord Jesus Christ is the greatest symbol of comprehensive dominion.
“But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus”.Ephesians 2:4-6 KJV
God did the quickening, he raised us up together, he empowered us to sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. In spiritual warfare, that is the highest level to operate from. No witch can get there. No eagle can get to where we are going. No ravenous beast shall be found there. No lion shall be there. Only the redeemed of the Lord shall be found there (Isa. 35:9). We are redeemed by the blood of the Lamb. The blood of lion has no redemptive value.
A lot of earthbound ministries are busy producing earth bound people. The number of people who follow the wrong theologies of eagles and lions is disturbing. Jesus didn’t die so that we may build bigger cathedrals. “If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable” (1 Cor. 15:19). We need to be careful. Even in the teaching of grace, it is possible to make grace an earthbound theology. It is very easy to twist it to become all about money and prosperity. You will be shocked if you decide to transact any business with people who listen to these messages. Set up a Church committee, and some of the members will commit crime. This is because committee without character will surely commit crime. Committee without character cannot have commitment. How many Christians can you transact business with today without being cheated? Worse still, some people are capable of sending assassins to the person in order to cover up their crime. Why do they do this? Many people do not even believe that heaven is real; they don’t believe that hell is real. Also, wrong theologies which make people believe that they have arrived when they have not even started is a contributing factor. If you believe the theology of ‘once saved, saved forever’, it doesn’t matter how you live, the moment you say the sinners’ prayer, you are already in heaven. What can you do? If you believe the theology of easy believism, you have a long way to go. Is grace a license to sin?
- Lord, please have mercy on me. Every error that can send me to the other side, please wipe it away. Lord, I have set my heart to seek you in spirit and in truth, please help me to be at the right place at the right time. Help me. Take away every wrong theology capable of taking me to the wrong place in the name of Jesus Christ.
- Grant me the grace not to misunderstand the true meaning of grace in the name of Jesus Christ. Supernaturally empower me to live above sin all the days of my life in the mighty name of Jesus.
- May I make heaven at last. I depend on your finished work to make it to the heaven of heavens in Jesus’ name.
