CHRIST YOUR LIFE

His life as your life

AGE OF THE KINGDOM



There is a way that heaven invades earth. This way was opened in the person of Jesus and is the person of Jesus. It is so very the person of Jesus that it is Christ in you, Christ in us. It’s called the new covenant and it releases into humanity the relationship that Jesus has with His Father and Holy Spirit.

PLACE OF THE ANOINTING

Anointings and gifts of the Spirit are the result of Jesus’ union with Father becoming our union with Father. Whenever the gifts are made a thing in themselves, put in a container and added to an old covenant mindset and culture - they become distorted, diluted and in danger of being hijacked by evil spirits.

The gifts are not intended to legitimise Adam or Moses. They are the result and the effect of our life in Christ. A life in which is we and our Father are one. Stephen Crosby writes,

“
In the old covenant prophetic function was based on giftedness and anointing. In the new covenant all ministry, including prophetic ministry, flows out of the reality of our union with Christ. In the new covenant we do not minister based on our giftedness. We minister out from our status as dearly beloved sons and daughters. Who we are in Christ is the basis of all ministry, not how "anointed" we are. Giftedness in the new covenant is integrated with being, character and identity. [105] It was because Jesus was first a beloved Son that He then manifested supernatural works. There were many before Jesus who had manifested supernatural works, but they were never identified as beloved sons to be listened to. Every believer since Pentecost is in the latter category because of being "in Christ." (1)

A gospel that is exclusively the gifts is not the gospel of the Kingdom. A gospel that is the gifts bolted-on to the old covenant will ultimately fade and become dormant.

SELF PROMOTED BONDAGE

If we remain contained in the law we have imprisoned ourselves in Moses and Adam’s knowledge of good and evil. Even with grace we have smothered ourselves in a mindset of separation from God when we are not actually separated. But we may have incorporated into our religious culture a key strategy of Satan: Offer something that is good to obscure that which is their inheritance of union with God.

A CANCER

The lie that today we must live out of the law, from morality, Christian ethics and values with Jesus’ help is not restricted to obscure sects. It infects the Christian Industry. But that’s not the Kingdom even if it appears to masses of religious consumers that this is orthodox religion. Jesus did not leave us religion. He does not live to sustain religion.
Jesus lives to be our life, to manifest His person in all people and draw the alienated and the Fatherless into the pearl of great price: Their belonging in the Family of God.

What is Jesus’ commandment? It is to agree that He is our life.

‘Jesus replied, "Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them’ John 14.23 NIV.

God is not somewhere else. The trinity is not in some other place or contained in some ‘holy day.’ The trinity lives in you, is woven into your being and is your life. This is the effect and realty of Christ come in your flesh.
