Beloveds brothers, the Holy Spirit is leading me to go deep in this subject.. I know that what i will share will bless you.. This is nuggets of His Grace that gives a understanding in Whom we are in Christ
The bible says in Revelation 1:6
And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
What a tremendous declaration of the bible concerning us…
. We’ll dive in the word and understand what is be a King and and Priest…
First of all, let me give you an example that will enlighten you:
If a King in His Kingdom fall in love for a prostitute and want to marry her and she accept what happen to her ?
First she Become a Queen ( change of status), Second She will change her doing.
Now, she did something to become a Queen ? No, she doesn’t..
And why she changed her doing? She start to act like a Queen and stop to live her old life style.. Why? By knowing who She is. She did not perform to become Queen rather She become Queen because of the King’s acceptance.
So, we’ll see through this note that’s its by Knowing Who we are that we’ll change our behavior.. And understand that our status isn’t define by our performance but by the acceptance of the Father (Rom 5:19)
By what Christ Accomplish at the Cross and in His resurrection
He brought us to His Status
He brought us to His Standing
He brought us to His Person
He brought us to a New Covenant( What belongs to Him,belongs to us)
He gave us is Power, His Glory, His reaches,HIS NAME that is above all Names
The bible says that
He Become Sin (NOUN) and gave us HIS Righteousness
2Co 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin(NOUN) for us, who knew no sin (NOUN); that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
In the original Greek “TO BE” is not there..
For He hath made him SIN OFFERING for us
Who knew no sin ( Why Jesus knew no Sin?)
Contrary to the popular believes, that says Jesus knew no sin because he havent sinned (verb) the bible says that Jesus Knew no Sin (noun)because He was born from a incorruptible seed, ( Luke 1:30-35 and Matthew 1:18-21)
Let’s Study this passage of the Bible in the Light of the Sin Offering of Leviticus :
SIN OFFERING – Imputation of Sin
Burnt Offering – Imputation of Righteousness
Joseph Prince says in His book Destined to Reign
According to the law, a man must bring a sin offering to the priest whenever he sins. Imagine that you are living in Old Testament times. You have sinned and you are now bringing a lamb as your sin offering (noun) to the priest. The first thing that will happen is that the priest will examine the lamb to ensure that it has no blemishes. The lamb must be without blemish and perfect because it speaks of Jesus’ perfection. Jesus knew no sin He is the true sacrificial Lamb without blemish. After the priest has examined your sin offering, you must lay your hands on its head.
So, i believe that the main purpose EVERY TIME THAT THEY SINNED THEY SHOULD BRING A SIN OFFERING(lamb (JESUS)(PROPITIATION OF SIN) to have no more conscious of SIN(NOUN) but of the righteousness of the LAMB.
So every year was a reminder of SIN (BEING) until Christ came,
Lets see what the bible says
Heb 10:1 For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers there unto perfect.
Heb 10:2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins (noun).
Heb 10:3 But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year.
Heb 10:4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins (NOUN)
Check my Study “ Are your SINS, Past , Present and Future forgiven, or your Sin forgiven ? ” to understand how i describe this SINS, that in Greek its Singular and a NOUN, not a Verb..
Now let’s see the burnt offering
Joseph Prince says in His book “Destined to reign”
The burnt offering speaks of Jesus’ worthiness before God, His acceptance before God and His delight before His Father being transferred to you. Today, God favors you in exactly the same way He favors His Son.
Now, before all let’s define one important word “Holiness”
The traditional definition of holiness is that it is about doing right. But study “holiness” in the original Greek and you will find that it is the word:
hagiasmos, – “separation to God”. Therefore, being holy means that you have been set apart, made uncommon from the rest of the world of unbelievers.
Because of Jesus Righteousness you were made Holy forever
Keep This in Mind, now let’s back to the Leviticus Sacrifice
I believe that beside the Old sacrifices was as well for the SINS (VERB) the Major purpose of The Leviticus sacrifice was to give a conscious of the Sinful nature and righteousness of the Lamb, that’s why they cannot cease to offer sacrifice.. to remember them their old nature and recognize a need for a savior.
Heb 10:2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins. NOUN (HAMARTIA) :
Once again, im giving the definition as I did in my previous study about the Word SIN (noun) and don’t forget that Noun means (People, Thing or Place)
Webster dictionary a flaw in character that brings about the downfall of the hero of a tragedy
So after studying through the Leviticus offering 2 Cor 5:21 we’ll be focus in Identity(Being)
The perfect sacrifice of Jesus Gives you Second Adam right standing consciousness (BEING)
Now, Why The devil want you Self-consciousness.. ?
He Knows the power of identity, being self-conscious is not primary be conscious of your faults but be conscious of Adams nature..
We know that Adam’s fall brought CONDEMNATION,DEATH
When we feel condemn its because we focus in wrong identity.
The root of condemnation is not being focus in your doing its in your Being by lack of revelation..
Now, let’s see Romans 5
Rom 5:17 For if by one man’s offense death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)
The word “reign” used in Romans 5:17 is the Greek word basileuo` where you get the English word “basilica”.
In ancient Rome, basilicas were used law courts. So it refers to a kingly, judicial rule.
To reign here is to reign in life as a king, to have kingly rule and to possess kingly dominion.
Joseph Prince wrote this in His Book “Destined to Reign”
If you are living a life of defeat, of being defeated by sin, by perpetual guilt and condemnation, by sicknesses, by anxiety attacks, by financial lack and by broken relationships, you are not living the life that God intended for you.
Based on the authority of God’s Word, you are destined to “reign in life” as a king, to have kingly dominion over all your challenges and circumstances. You are called to be above them all and not be trampled by them. The time has come for you to stop abdicating your right to reign in life!
Let’s address this very famous passage of the Bible where we’ll see that its all about identity (being) and not Doing
Mat 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
In greek the word Seek = zēteō
(VERB; to seek in order to find, to seek a thing, to seek [in order to find out] by thinking, meditating, reasoning, to enquire into
Its very clear that seek Is not about DOING, but BELIEVING
Now, Let’s see what means KINGDOM in Greek
Basileia (THE VERY SAME WORD used by PAUL in ROMANS 5:17 when he address the word REIGN !!!!!!!!!! WOW. C’mon, this is incredible my beloveds… let continue
This is the total definiton of basileia
royal power, kingship, dominion, rule
1a) not to be confused with an actual kingdom but rather the right or authority to rule over a kingdom
1b) of the royal power of Jesus as the triumphant Messiah
1c) of the royal power and dignity conferred on Christians in the Messiah’s kingdom
2) a kingdom, the territory subject to the rule of a king
3) used in the N.T. to refer to the reign of the Messiah
Now, what the means KINGDOM OF GOD ? Paul describe like this:Rom 14:17
For the kingdom of God is not meat
; but righteousness
, and peace,
in the Holy GhostThe bible says that the Kingdom of God is already inside of us ( behold, the kingdom of God is within you.” (Luke 17:21b) –
So the definition that I make of Matthew 6:33 filtered with the Filter of the Cross and based in the Original Greek is this:
When we think, meditate, reason in the righteousness of God, knowing what Jesus did, who He is and Who we are (identity), Joy and Peace will flow from within us and we will realize what we already have in Him.
Seeking the Kingdom of God is about understanding what Jesus already done at the cross, than we’ll find our identity
The Bible states very clearly that we are to reign in life through Jesus Christ just by receiving two things from Him: The abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness (Identity).
Religion teach us to do to achieve When Jesus teach us believe that was already achieved
To finish i share what i posted on FB:
The Boldness to face life came by knowing who you are.. You are the righteousness of God apart of your performance. Knowing who you are will give the boldness to speak and to act like so. The true humbleness is recognizing that you are righteous, holy, blameless, spotless like Jesus by what He did for you..And the true pride its acting other wise of your Righteousness. Begging, fearful, stressful, worry, felling condemn
Be humble Knowing that you are righteous forever in God by what Jesus accomplished at the cross and Have the boldness of King. You wish, you have. Rejoice, nothing can stop you..Go ahead beloved, no debt, no challenge, no circumstances can resist when you know Who you are…
Jesus, the King of Kings married Church (us) and our status was changed Because of His acceptance. What belongs to Him, belongs to us just because we are in Him forever. We enjoy His blessing not based in what we do but believing Who we are in Him..We will not try to perform well to become something that we already are,we perform well because we know who we are.That’s why i said that we will change by knowing who we are. We are forever like Jesus as a free gift because we are married with Him forever.. All based in His obedience to the Cross
