Text: I Timothy 1:9a
Intro: Many strive to become what they already are in Christ. However, when we recognize who God has made us, it revolutionizes the way we see the world and our relationship with the Father!!! And we realize we have been translated from the kingdom of darkness to the Kingdom of God. We’re in the Kingdom of God RIGHT NOW!!
We Don’t Strive To Become Overcomers
Because whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world. Prince Charles did not have to work to become a prince….he was born one. We don’t work to become overcomers, because if we did…we would have earned the right to be an overcomer…..and GOD WILL NOT ALLOW THAT!!!
God wants all the glory! What Christ has done for mankind will not be trumped by any human effort whatsoever!
We don’t work to get blessed. The work is finished and we have received all spiritual blessings. Some REFUSE to believe this. Nevertheless it is true!!!
Over Comer Blessings Include
Salvation from sins
Healing for the body
Baptism of the Holy Ghost
Covenant = The Sign of the Son
All of the covenants in the Bible point to this one covenant
Abrahamic Covenant- was a covenant that Abraham took NO PART IN!!
Davidic Covenant- the promise that David was going to reign under Christ forever did not hinge on HIS actions but on WHAT WAS COMING FROM THE MOUTH OF GOD!!!
We remember what David did……but he still kept the throne and will one day rule under Christ in the future!!!
God Could Swear By No Greater
He Swore By Himself…Saying to Abraham: in blessing I will bless thee, in multiplying I will multiply thee.
He said in another place that in the Son, or in your Seed, all the nations of the Earth….WILL BE BLESSED!!!
Not in their works….but in the Seed!!!
Not in their prayers….but in the Seed!!!
Not in their ceremonies…but in the Seed!!!
Not in their striving….but in the Seed!!! EVERY BODY IN THE SON….WILL BE BLESSED!!! HALLELUJAH!!!!!
Jesus Buried Moses
In the Old Testament
He was the one who said you can look into the promised land…BUT YOU CAN NOT ENTER!!
We can only enter the promise by grace through faith….NOT THE LAW!!
In the New Testament
Christ abolished the law of the commandments in His Flesh so that He could bring the Jews and the Gentiles into the New Creation experience. Hallelujah!!!
