The power of this unlimited resurrection life courses through our being overcoming the inroads of the tree whose fruit blinds the religious and multiplies the stench of death.
A middle aged man said, ‘God I want to know you!’ God replied, ‘Know My Son and the power of His resurrection in you life.’ Jesus is the human face of God. Jesus is also the solution to the distortion of God’s nature that comes via subservience to the knowledge of good and evil. God can only be known in union with Himself, which is why the Father sent Jesus to live with us and in us.
Christ in you is the realisation of glory because he reveals Himself to you.
The power of Christ’s resurrection is more than intimations of eternal life. It is life itself because life is what Jesus is. The power of this unlimited resurrection life courses through our being overcoming the inroads of the tree whose fruit blinds the religious and multiplies the stench of death.
The rising of the life of the Son of God in us, furnishes us with the eye-sight of sons and cures us of the eye-sight of slaves. Increasingly we have eyes that see and ears that hear the mind and heart of God. We have been delivered from the knowledge of good and evil and the deathly hallows that cling to it. We no longer live from these dichotomies because we are one new man in Christ. No longer do we call good evil and evil good. But our perception of good and evil has become acute. It penetrates sharper than a two-edged sword delivering Godly wisdom and discernment. We know the truth and the truth sets us free because the truth is Jesus. Now we live from the Spirit of wisdom and revelation.
A monk grabbed his apprentice and held his head under the water until he thought he would drown. ‘Why did you do that gasped the apprentice?’ When you desire God as much as you did air, you will come alive said the master. We are alive, we have life and we see when Jesus is the heart of our life, pumping light and vision into our being and all the things we touch. Fortunately our life in God does not depend on desiring Him enough. It is ours because we were desired from before the foundation of the earth and made one by God's atoning work and ministry of the Spirit of Sonship. All bases are covered.
Live in the union with God that is yours, speak personally to Jesus, ask Father to reveal Himself as Father to you and rejoice in the empowering presence of Holy Spirit. You are a new creation and you are an agent of the new creation in the world.
