Rhapsody Of Realities MAY 10th, 2018 | THE EMBODIMENT OF DIVINITY

Opening Scription 

_For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily (Colossians 2:9)._

     There’re Christians who don’t know who Jesus really is, and until you know Him, you can’t really have faith in Him. Many only know He’s said to be the Son of God. When you ask them what “Son of God” means, they don’t know. “Son of God” means God in flesh. In John 4:24, Jesus said to the Samaritan woman, “God is a spirit...,” meaning that He doesn’t have a physical body. So, who is Jesus? Jesus is the “body of God.”

Our opening verse says, “For in him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.” This means the fullness, the totality of divinity is resident in the body of Jesus. When Jesus walked the earth, all of divinity was at home in Him. He was God alive—walking and talking in a man’s body. So, if you ever wanted to know what God looked like, in terms of His appearance, you look at Jesus.

     No wonder He said in John 14:9, “…he that hath seen me hath seen the Father….” The same Jehovah who gave the law to Moses, and spoke to Moses from the fire, and to the children of Israel through His glory, is the same God that walked the streets of Galilee in Jesus Christ. Howbeit, they didn’t know Him!

     John 1:10-11 says, “He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not.” God, in the body of Jesus Christ, came to the world, but they didn’t recognize Him. The Bible says, “…it pleased the Father that in him (Jesus) should all fulness dwell” (Colossians 1:19).

     Now, here’s something extraordinary: Colossians 2:10 says, “And ye are complete in him (Jesus Christ) ….” The word “complete” means fullness; to be made full! You’re made full of the same one with whom Jesus is full. That means the Godhead has His home in you.

     Therefore, like Jesus, you’re the embodiment of divinity. This happened when the Holy Spirit came into your life. He brought into you the totality of the Godhead; the fullness of the Godhead dwells in you today, as it does Jesus. So, like Him, you’re the living house of the living God.
     There’s always a miracle—a testimony—for the one who acts on the Word. Always speak and act in consonance with the Word, and God’s power will overwhelm you and enable you to lay hold on the results that you desire. Hallelujah!

CONFESSION:


I’m full of God; God is in me; He walks in me; He talks in me, and I’m therefore, not an ordinary person. Greater is He that’s in me than he that’s in the world. The world is under my feet, and I walk in the path of victory and prosperity. Hallelujah!


Further Study:

|| Colossians 1:26-27; Living Bible (TLB);
26 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints.
27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:||


|| 1 John 4:4;
Ye are of God, friends, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.||


|| Colossians 3:3; Living Bible (TLB);
You should have as little desire for this world as a dead person does. Your real life is in heaven with Christ and God.||
