We are carrying about the dying of Christ so that the life of Christ might be manifested through us. We don't have to perfect the old nature to become more like Christ. Christ is already like Christ. We are putting to death the old nature with His nature. We believe in Him, now we are being taught how to live in Him.
We are no longer choosing between blessing and cursing, life and death. Jesus has taken the curse upon Himself at the cross. Our choice is choosing life and walking in the activated state of His glory.
Jesus is our example in everything that the Father had designed in covenant for us, including Jesus receiving the glory from the Father. We have received the same glory He had with the Father from before the foundation of the world. Compare this with the glory that the first Adam received. We have a better covenant with better promises and greater glory.
Jesus received the anointing of the prophet, priest, and king when He was in His earth ministry. We are created in the same image as the second Adam. The Father is in Christ, and Christ is in the Father. Thank you Father, that Christ is in me, and that I am in Christ. I receive by faith now when taking communion.
The complete plan of the Father had always been revealed from the first book in Scripture. While it had been revealed, it has not been clear to us without the Holy Spirit directly revealing to us. The Scripture states, "Then God said, 'Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”' That image Jesus described this way, 'Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves.' We have the same image when His glory is in us, and we are in His glory.
We receive from Jesus the fullness of His glory by covenant design from the Father. He has deposited this treasure within us, though it must be awakened as the psalmist has stated, "Wake up My glory!"
The Father of glory has placed and deposited the fullness of His glory within all that are in covenant relationship with Him. However, we may not have access to this treasure without the PIN numbers. The promises are the PIN numbers that the Holy Spirit unveils to each of us individually. Take this PIN number(promise), John 15:7,8 to access the fullness of His glory in any condition.
Ask yourself if you want a miracle this day, or this week. In the realm of His glory nothing is impossible. Without Him we could do nothing. Prepare in your heart that eternity begins now. How does living forever transform the daily life we experience now?
The whole gospel is by covenant choice and design by the Father of glory. He has done His part. We must do our part. Everything He has done is available and being offered, however not everything is being received. His glory which He deposited within each believer remains only a hope of glory until awakened and activated. How do we activate His glory in us? I receive His word, and release His word. That steady flow from us activates His glory. Every miracle Jesus did, He did because of the glory. He gave us the same glory when we called on His name.
The life that flows from the throne of glory is like a river. It must be received and it must be released. If this river is only received, then it will only turn into a swamp. Jesus stated very clearly, "What did you do with this treasure?" The answer in the parable given, "I have it buried right here." "Wake up My glory" as the psalmist has stated.
