THE TRUTH WILL LET YOU SEE
How do we avoid living in delusion?
The good news is that you can live in the Spirit and multiply the Kingdom of God simply by being yourself. This is not narcissism or hubris. It is humility in Christ. When Christ is your life you are in God and He is in you. You are alive in that light that came into the world.
Christ your life is you as a son. Your sonship creates His Kingdom.
We need to live in what God has done for us rather than in concepts that are distorted or just plain false. The easy way is to agree with God that your life in Adam and ‘self’ is dead because of Christ and that your new life in God is alive because of Jesus. Declare that this is so even if you cannot understand how it works. Just believe. It's called believing in the name of Jesus.
‘The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it’ John 1.5 NLT
Life in the Spirit is what Jesus bought for you with His death on the cross. Any version of Christianity that is not life in the Spirit is not the Kingdom. Avoid it. Life in the Spirit simply means that the divine life of God is in you because Christ is in you and He is your life. Life in the Spirit joins you to God and the Kingdom of Heaven so that the infinite and eternal life of heaven flows through you into others.
Life in the Spirit is also authoritative. You bear the authority of the sons and daughters of God because the Spirit of the Father is in you. Now you have authority not as the scribes and quite different to the authority of the religious. This is the same authority that Jesus wielded because it is His authority and life in you.
‘Jesus said to them, "Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you’ John 6.53 NIV.
Random acts of good are not the Kingdom of God. Christ multiplied through the sons of God is the Kingdom of God. One person living in the Spirit and exercising the authority given by Jesus will accomplish more than 1000 Believers operating in the flesh can achieve in a life-time. No matter how industriously people have built and how impressive they look, if built in the flesh they are worthless to the Kingdom of God. So what if all of us live and act in the Spirit?
‘I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven’ Matt 16.19 NIV.
