Loving From The Cross – Notes 3/12/17

Are we being true witnesses? Where is our evidence of the empty tomb? Where is the proof through supernatural miracles, signs and wonders and the raising of the dead that Jesus resurrected and is alive in our personal lives and ministries? Are we willing to risk persecution?

  • 7- The resurrection establishes Christ’s Kingdom and destroys satan’s kingdom Colossians 2:15
    • Praise God that Jesus rose from the dead and defeated satan taking from him all power and authority.
  • 8- Christ’s resurrection won our salvation, redemption, justification and resurrection. Luke 1:68-69, 1 Corinthians 15:17, Romans 6:11
    • As the first to be raised Jesus is the head of a new race. Ephesians 2:15
    • Just as we are included in Adam’s fall from dominion and his death, we are included in Jesus’s resurrection and His eternal life. 2 Corinthians 4:14, Philippians 3:20-21
  • 9- the resurrection gives us the right to rule over everything Jesus conquered. Romans 5:17
  • 10- the message of the power of the resurrection releases miracles, signs and wonders here and now.
    • The disciples preached the reality and message of Christ’s resurrection. Mark 16:20
  • How to walk in the power of the Resurrection
    • 1- Die to the “Old Man”- the flesh or the carnal self
      • “I have been crucified with Christ” –Galatians 2:20- is a declaration of death to the “old man” and the most important condition for the power of the resurrection life to manifest through us.
        • Whenever the carnal self or sinful nature gets in the way, it can block the power of God in our lives. John 12:24-25
          • If we love what we think, feel and want, wit out pursuing what God wants, we will die spiritually. But if we live our lives in the sense of turning away from “the spirit of the world” (1Corinthians 2:12) we will receive eternal life. You cannot live selfish lives and resurrected lives at the same time. We must die to the old life to give way to our new life.
          • Galatians 2:20 When we die to self, another person –Christ- begins to live in and through us.
          • Luke 9:23 We must renew our minds daily. Elect to think Jesus’ thoughts rather than our own thoughts. We must walk in the Spirit. (Galatians 5:16-25) We will live to the degree that we are willing to die.
        • 2- Live by the faith of Christ within you, here and now
          • the believer’s life of faith begins at the resurrection, after the death to self. Galatians 2:20
            • We cannot operate in faith if we are living in a natural carnal state in which we are dominated by reason, time and space. The flesh can’t produce faith, because it is a heavenly “substance” Hebrews 11:1, not a natural one. We have to have Jesus’ faith not our own.
            • When we declare or decree God’s truth, we do so from a position of ruling in heaven, together with the King. The heavens don’t recognize the word impossible because there, everything is completed, healed, transformed, saved and free. Because faith is for the here and now, we should not postpone dong anything in the present in hopes of doing it in the future.
          • 3- Receive your inheritance of the resurrection by faith Ephesians 1:18-20
            • If the revelation of the resurrection is absent, there will be no supernatural power in the church.
          • 4- Know Christ in the power of his resurrection Philippians 3:10
            • The phrase “That I may know Him (Christ)” includes having an experience with His resurrection power in every aspect. For example, we must know the power of Christ as a dominion – territorial power- anointing – the power to serve- faith – the power to do miracles- rule – the power of god in the realm of authority- perseverance – the power of character transformation- strength – the power for spiritual warfare- prosperity – the power to gain wealth and so forth.
            • The outpouring of the Holy Spirit is the continuation of Christ’s resurrection.
            • Matthew 10:7-8 Jesus commands us to go.
          • 5- Recognize and understand God’s sovereignty
            • God is the author and finisher of life and we need to acknowledge His sovereignty in all aspects of manifesting the supernatural.
          • 6- Receive a Rhema or revealed “now” word from the Holy Spirit
        • Prayer of surrender to God.-
