Three Grace truths-Truth no.3
Updated: Sep 11, 2019
3. You have been totally filled with the fullness of God!
Colossians 2:9-10 says, “9 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; 10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power”.
You can never come into the fullness of grace as long as you believe you are still under the law. If you believe you are under the law even a little bit you will never come into the fullness of grace. It is only when you believe the law covenant has completely passed away and you have died to it, God is not putting it on you and does not want you bound by it - it is a ministry of death and He has bought you out of it and resurrected you into the covenant of the Spirit!
Romans 7:6 says, “6 But now we have been delivered from the law, having died to what we were held by, so that we should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter”. You have been released from the law! You are no longer accountable to the law! God has put His Spirit inside of your hearts and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty! Liberty from that Old Covenant - you have been liberated from the letter and come into the new way of the Spirit! You can’t have freedom in the Old Covenant! You don't have to run back to the law! Stay in the Spirit and watch Him transform your life!
You have been filled with the fullness of God - "In Christ all the fullness of the Deity live in bodily form". And we have received all his fullness grace upon grace (John 1:16). These people that say that Jesus was born of God and deny His deity are wrong! They are deceived. Jesus is God! All the fullness of the Deity of God lives in bodily form and "you have been given fullness in Christ!” It doesn't say we will be given fullness. It says (past tense) we have been given fullness in Christ! All of the riches of heaven - all of the perfection of Christ live inside of us because we have been united with Christ.
1 Corinthians 6:17; "one with Him". 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new”. There is no sin nature in you if you are born-again or saved. There is nothing of the old creation that lives inside of your new creation spirit. There is no sin or unrighteousness. Your spirit has received full perfection! Full holiness! God is not trying to give you anything else - He has already given you His fullness!
The fruit of the Spirit - many say that if you live by the Spirit you will eventually develop the fruit of the Spirit. Actually - that's wrong! The fruit of the Spirit is what is in your new nature - your reborn-spirit united with His Spirit. All of the fullness of God lives inside of you! So when we walk in the Spirit by our reborn spirit then we manifest the fullness of God through our lives! Let me tell you what it means to 'walk in the Spirit'! There are three dimensions to walking in the Spirit:
1. Walking in the Spirit Covenant - the grace covenant
2. by your reborn-spirit
3. in fellowship with the Holy Spirit.
Focus on Jesus and His Spirit in you! Focus on grace! Don't focus on the law or sin or devil! Focus on the gift of righteousness - the grace of God and the finished work of the Cross! Speak and confess who you are in Christ!
When you sin don't run back to the law and get under condemnation. Stay in the grace covenant! Focus on your reborn spirit. Too much of the church is focusing on the weakness of people's bodies and the corruption of their minds and are condemning them! Their reborn-spirit or new nature doesn't want to do that stuff!
Activate their spirit and as you do that, the spirit will take control over their bodies and minds and they won't do it! Teach them how to activate their spirits! Don't teach how terrible the body and the mind is! Teach how incredible our re-born spirit or new nature is!
The world is full of so many lies! But the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth and is our closest friend leading us in truth. Become more and more aware of His presence in your lives. He doesn't leave us and walk around condemning us or convicting us of sins as some teach. He dwells in us and walks amongst us (2 Cor 6:16) and is our Comforter - our Counsellor - our legal defence in the courts of heaven. He stands up and says; "They are totally forgiven and made righteous through the Cross! They are not guilty!” Follow and focus on the Holy Spirit in your nature - not on the flesh or the materialism of this world.
