Thank you Abba Father, for your wisdom, power, love, and the sound mind we receive in Christ by the Holy Spirit. Thank you Jesus for the finished work of the Cross; the Blood of the Lamb; the Word of Your Testimony that is the Spirit of Prophesy over us; and dying to our old nature with You, raised with You into the new nature.
“Christ is both the power of God and the wisdom of God…brings to nothing things that are…God is the source of our life in Christ Jesus, whom God made our wisdom, our righteousness and sanctification and redemption…Let us boast of the Lord” 1 Cor 1:24-31
God gives life to the dead and calls into existence the things that do not exist…Let no distrust make you waver concerning the promises of God, fulfilled in Jesus, growing strong in faith as we give glory to God, fully convinced that God is able to do what He has promised…written for our sakes…reckoned to us who believe in God who raised from the dead Jesus our Lord (Romans 4:16-24).
“For through the law I died to the law, that I might live to God. I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me; and the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loves me and gives himself for me. I do not nullify the grace of God; for if justification were through the law, then Christ would have died for no purpose” Galatians 2:19-21
“And you He made alive, when you were dead through trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit now at work in the sons of disobedience. Among these we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, following the desires of body and mind, and so we were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. BUT GOD, who is rich in mercy, out of His Great Love with which He loves us, even when we were dead through our trespasses, MADE US ALIVE WITH CHRIST (by grace you have been saved), and raises us up with Christ to sit WITH CHRIST in the heavenly places” Ephesians 2:1-6
“But now in Christ Jesus you who were once far off have been brought near in the Blood of Jesus. For Christ is our peace, who has made us BOTH ONE with God, and has broken down the dividing wall of hostility by abolishing in His flesh the law of commandments and ordinances, that Jesus might create IN HIMSELF one new person in place of the two, so making peace, RECONCILING US BOTH TO GOD in one body through the Cross, thereby bringing the hostility to an end…through Christ we both have access in one Spirit to the Father” Ephesians 2:13-18
“Gentiles are fellow heirs, members of the same body, and partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel…the unsearchable riches of Christ, to make you see what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God who created all things…the eternal purpose of God REALIZED in Christ Jesus our Lord, in whom we have boldness and confidence of ACCESS thought our faith in Jesus…be strengthened with might through His Spirit in your inner spirit man, Christ dwelling in your heart; rooted and grounded in love, having power to comprehend the breadth, length, height and depth, to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge (experience the love) that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to do far more abundantly than all we ask or think, to God be the glory” Ephesians 3:6-21
“No longer live in the futility of [unredeemed] mind, darkened in understanding, alienated from the life of God because of ignorance, due to hardness of heart, callous, and giving yourself up to licentiousness, greed, uncleanness…Learn Christ!…hear Jesus, be taught by Holy Spirit; the Truth is in Jesus. Put off your old nature which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through lust, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new nature, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness…do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God…Let no one deceive you with empty words…Once you were in darkness, but now you are light in the Lord; walk as children of light…Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light…be filled with the Spirit…giving thanks in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God the Father…The two shall become one flesh. This mystery is a profound one” Ephesians 4:17-5:32
The riches of the glory of this mystery hidden for ages and generations is manifest Christ in you, the hope of glory. Christ we proclaim, warning every one and teaching every one in all wisdom, that we may present every one mature in Christ (Colossians 1:26-28).
“If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are Above, where Jesus is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are 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
Encourage your hearts, knit together with Christ in love, having 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…Therefore, receive Christ Jesus the Lord, live IN HIM, rooted and built up IN HIM…For IN HIM the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, and you come to fullness of life IN HIM, who is the Head of all rule and authority (Colossians 2:2-10).
