If self is your focus:
- sin = satan is natural
- ego = edging God out
- lie = lucifer is entertained
- fear = false evidence appearing real
If Christ is your focus:
The Holy Spirit sent to believers brings us into union with Christ who is perfectly one with God our Father. People are destroyed for lack of knowledge of God and his glory; they reject Christ, forget what God has done for us once for all; people without understanding come to ruin (Hosea 4:6, 14b). The riches of glory are Christ in you: all the riches of assured understanding and the knowledge of God’s mystery, of Christ, in whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Receive Christ and live in Him; come to fullness of life in Him, the Head of all rule and authority. In Christ we were buried with Him in baptism and ALSO raised with Him through faith in the working of God; MADE ALIVE WITH HIM; triumphing over the principalities and powers IN HIM (Colossians 1:25-2:15).
We come alive WITH CHRIST and reign with Christ (Revelation 20:4b). “Do not ignore this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord ONE DAY is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as ONE DAY” 2 Peter 3:8. “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears my word and believes him who sent me, has eternal life; he does not come into judgment, but HAS PASSED from death to life. Truly, truly I say to you, the hour is coming AND NOW IS, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live” John 5:24-25.
“The Spirit and Bride say, ‘Come.’ And those who hear say, ‘Come.’ Come take the water of life without price” Revelation 22:17
“Therefore, if any one is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold the new HAS COME” 2 Corinthians 5:17
“God, who is rich in mercy, out of the great love…made us ALIVE TOGETHER WITH CHRIST, and RAISED US UP WITH HIM, and made us SIT WITH HIM in the heavenly places IN CHRIST JESUS” Ephesians 2:1-6
“If then YOU HAVE BEEN RAISED WITH CHRIST, seek the things that are above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, NOT ON THINGS that are on earth. For YOU HAVE DIED and your life is hid with Christ in God” Colossians 3:1-3
“In that DAY you will know that I am in my Father and you in me and I in you” John 14:20
