Message for October 1, 2017 from Pastor Shirley

 I believe that the greatest hindrance in living a overcoming Christian life is not knowing who we in Christ what we have been given. So many churches teach salvation but it is to be maintained by works or get saved and hold until that someday you will cross Jordan and then you will inherit all things. God has provided a glorious inheritance for all believers and we are to take hold of it now. We live this overcoming life through our position which is one of authority and our inheritance includes dominion over all the works of darkness, including sin, sickness, disease, and spiritual death.

     Ephesians 2:6 says, “. . . And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. .” As sons and daughters of God we must get a revelation of our seating and reigning with Christ is a position of authority, power, and triumph. Not one of defeat or failure.

     Notice the word “hath” in Ephesians 2:6. This is a word that is past tense. We when received Jesus Christ as our Savior he raised us up and sit us heavenly places in Christ Jesus. We reign in this life now-if we exercise our rightful authority.

The word hath in Ephesians 2:6 is past tense. God has already raised us up and made us sit in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. We will rule and reign with Christ in this life now—if we’ll exercise our rightful authority.
