Yes, I did. It’s a long story. I just found out. Was that a dream? Of course not. I’m not alive again. I know you will say, “Can the dead talk? Don’t say that to yourself! Don’t pronounce death on yourself!”
I feel you. What’s death? Simply one of the evil angels. Not afraid of him. Beside, my Lord has the key of life and death in His hand. See Revelations 1:18.
I repeat. I died! Died to the sting of death which is sin! Dead to vices of this world. Dead to lust of the flesh; lust of the eyes and pride of life. Dead to my own will.
The old me is gone. Likewise, the old you should be gone. No matter how long you have been in Christ. Don’t you be street smart about it! You are either dead or still alive to the world. It is subtle. Are you dead to the world and its lust therein?
Is the old you resurrected? Check! Check!! I tell you. Many of us have gone back to reincarnate another version of someone in our family tree. Who do you look like now? Christ or someone else not born again? I beg of you, kill the incarnate with the fullness of God.
Okay. So, what made me proclaimed “I died”? Hear this!
“Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him,” Romans 6:8
Did you read that? I died with the Lord Jesus! So did you. Glory! And I’m alive in Him! So are you! I’m over death. And you are too. Well, you can snuff at it like, “Who the hell does he think he is?”
Let me demystify your thinking with the verse below:
“…knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God.” Romans 6:9-10
Did you read that? If you didn’t see it, please go back and read it again. Let it sink. Christ dies no more. Since I died with Him and now alive in Him, I also die no more. If you are truly born-again, that is speaking of you too.
That’s my MO! That should be yours. Oh by the way, I mean Modus Operandi.
I’m alive unto God! I’m alive to righteousness. Alive to virtue! Alive to the fruit of the spirit. So are you. His life is in me and in you. His divine nature is in me! And in you also. Did you get that?
I shall live forever with Him. I have passed from death unto life in Christ because I love the brethren. Yes! That’s our daily work of love. When the work of flesh rises within, we quench it with the Word of God, and just walk in the love of God. We let nothing put us under! We are dead to sin and awake unto righteousness. Alive unto God! Alive to righteousness. Alive to virtue! Alive to the fruit of the spirit.
Craving daily the fullness of God. Whatever that means, I want it. You must want it too.
Oh! Don’t settle for less. There’s more in Him. I yearn, “Oh Lord, I want all of your fullness. Let it come all over me! Whatever it takes, show me Lord.” The fullness of God that manifests the manifold nature of the Eternal Being, the Father of our Lord Jesus!
The Godhead indwelling me! Bring it all over me! Fill me! Fill me till eternity. To be lost in You my Maker, my Master, my Saviour! Oh eternity! The fullness of Jehovah. The limitless, immeasurable and surpassing presence of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
Where shall I be immersed in my Father? Your fullness Oh Lord! Nothing but the fullness. Get me drunk till I cannot walk, floating under your glory; the power of the ages to come; the awesome brightness of His glory. Your glory! Your majesty! Your pleasure!
Eternal throne burning with sea of glass with fiery flames before the Majesty on high. My Father!!! Your fullness!
