LIVING FROM ABOVE

Pastor Dwain Faith

I’m appealing to you to think, pray and live from your inheritance.

I want you to consider the miracle working life of Jesus, the wisdom of Jesus, the Love of Jesus, the grace and truth of Jesus and realize that His DNA is now yours as well.

We caught some of the airshow yesterday after church.  Those planes are stunning, but their not made for the hangar.  They are made for the sky.

Too much of our religious influence has us grounded, living from the earth and the limitations of the earth realm.  Religion is content to have us are operating from the earth instead of from Heaven.  We need to get out of the Hangar and fly!

Heaven is our nation of origin.  We are a reborn people, taken from every tribe, tongue and people and made into one new nation, one new people from heaven.

Jesus knew his origin and his resource and this was an influence in all that he did.  This was a source of confidence for every overcoming deed and miracle.

We too must become more conscious of our new birth, the origin of our new birth and our inheritance.

Here is what Jesus said about us when He spoke to Father concerning us…

John 17: 15  My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one.16  They are not of the world, even as I am not of it.17  Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.18  As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world.19  For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.20  “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message,21  that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.22  I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one:  23  I in them and you in me.

 

Paul gave us a similar appeal when he wrote to the Colossians and the Ephesians:

Col  3:1  Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.  2  Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.  3  For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.

 

Ephesians 2:4  But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,5  even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),6  and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places, in Christ Jesus,7  in order that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.8  For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;9  not as a result of works, that no one should boast.10  For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

 

In helping us understand this new dimension and life, Paul called us Ambassadors:

2 Cor.  5: 20  We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us.

You know what an ambassador is;   A representative sent from one country to another, sent to bring benefit from the country they represent.  They have the lifestyle of their native country, they have the resources of their native country.  They have the backing of their native country.  The have the language of their native country.

A Christian is a supernatural ambassador of the Kingdom of Heaven, having at their finger tips all the resources of Heaven.
