Key verse: 1 John 2:24
Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.
1 John 2:22-25
There is a whole lot happening in the realm of the spirit regarding the life of man on planet earth. The man that God created is reckoned as son of God before he fell and became estranged from God, the Father. But, because no good father is happy to lose his son, God planned to shed His Spirit into the flesh that man carries to ransom man from the consequence of his misbehavior. God has since fulfilled this plan in the Lord Jesus Christ. Like the first Adam, He was man yet He remained the Son of God as His conception was of the Holy Spirit/God. This effort of God yielded positive dividend to ransom man from eternal damnation. But only those offspring of man that recognize that which the Lord has done and hold on to it take benefit of it. Through this, man can return to the state he was in the garden before the fall, if not completely, at least appreciably and start to fulfill the purpose for which God formed him originally.
Unfortunately, many fail to appreciate and recognize this that the Lord has done. The result of that is continued bondage and servitude to the one whom God made servant to man. Therefore, those who believe and hold on to the truth of the acts of God are translated to children who grow to sons of God in the similitude of Christ; and all those who fail to believe call God a liar and are retained in the fallen nature of their father the first Adam, operating perpetually in servitude and bondage in Satan. They are anti-Christ and exist as such. But those who are on the Lord’s side manifest better living on earth and eternally. On earth, they call things that are not as if they are and they come to being. Ask Peter, Paul and Philip to mention a few. Moses, Joshua, Elijah and Elisha also had a foretaste of that though they came before the Christ but had an experience with the Spirit that formed Christ at their time.
We also can start to do great exploits and mesmerize the devil anywhere we find him in operation. We can so do if we become sons of God by recognizing that Christ already ransomed us from the wages of sin and we live our lives through Him going forward.
Pray: Father, let me start to manifest your power as I believe in your ransom work for me. Never let me derail in my journey with you in Jesus name.
