I Am God’s Impeccable Image
“For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.”
Hebrews 4:3 (KJV)
Christianity starts from heaven and stretches to the earth. You must first see yourself as heaven sees you. You must believe this view and receive it. Then you will be empowered to do heaven’s work on earth (Philippians 2:12-13). It is a working from the inside out (Colossians 3:1-4). First you sit in heaven and then you stand in the power of that revelation and walk in dominion. You are not trying to do something to be accepted in the beloved (Ephesians 1:6, John 1:12). When you first receive Him, you receive the power to become the son of God (Genesis 1:26-28).
You must first receive His image in order to function in His likeness. If you had to do something to be accepted you would spend a lifetime trying to accomplish one task. And still you would not be accepted; 2 Corinthians 5:17 declares that if anyone be in Christ (not “please the Lord” or “keep the commandments”), he is a new creation. In addition, 2 Corinthians 5:21 says that He became sin for us. Do you think He did that so you might do something? Keep the laws? No, it was so that you might become the righteousness of God in Christ. He became what we were so that we might become who He is.
In Christianity you begin at the finishing point. You must see your finishing line and accept it as the truth. Then you will be empowered to move towards it. You must become before you are empowered to do. When you see yourself as a finished product you will see all that God has already completed, and as a result, you will see all that you are supernaturally empowered to do (2 Corinthians 3:18, Romans 8:16, John 16:13, Genesis 1:26). You are made in God’s image and likeness. Genesis 1:28 confirms that you are blessed, so you can produce.
We have slowed down God’s movement by making the starting point the end. Start your walk with God from the end product. Take ownership of the finished work He has made available to you. He finished it. There is nothing for you to add; all you need to do is simply accept it and walk in it. Then you will reign with Him.
Thank You Jesus!
