“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. 4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love 5 he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will” Ephesians 1:3-5
As I read this scripture I knew that God was specifically speaking to his children and saying even before we took our first breath, formed a thought , or even came to perceive him he had decided by his will that we would be adopted into his family through Christ Jesus. It is the will of the father that we are united with Jesus Christ, that our spirit are one with him not by works but rather the blessings he has bestowed upon us in Christ Jesus.
We tend to forget that even within our material existence our spirits are united with the Spirit of God, that we are in fact called into oness with the father through Jesus Christ.
We are united with the one who is the word, the word which is life .
We are united with the word of God, the word which is life. How amazing, how Glorious is the heart of the father who saw it fit that we would live aware of what he has already accomplished for us in Christ Jesus. Our Spirit as children of God is united with God. It is the most liberating truth to live in constant awareness that your greatest reality has already been established by the father in Christ Jesus.
This is our great salvation our reason to rejoice, the fact that while we were yet sinners the father loved us in Christ Jesus and blessed us with every spiritual blessing.
When Christ died on the cross for my sin, the veil was torn and I had access to the father through the holy Spirit. That any spiritual blindness that operated in me was brought into judgement by his blood and Resurrection so I can stand in any circumstance with the greatest assurance that despite how bleak my days may look it is indeed finished because My spirit can finally be one with God. That i can begin to live in the promise and the will of God spoken over me even before the foundations of the world.
What a Glorious Truth.
At this very moment we have the ability to walk on earth as a vessel of the Almighty God, that our bodies are actually temples of the holy Spirit who reveals to us spiritual blessing that we have done nothing to earn all found in Jesus christ Our lord and saviour. That christ himself lives in me, the one through whom all things were created is alive in me in each moment.
I pray that God may open our hearts so we may receive him. That we can meditate on his glorious truth that has lifted us to a reality of being one with the all Wise God who spoke all things into being. The God who speaks our existence into being through Jesus Christ. That he may remind us that even before the foundations of the world he chose us in Christ Jesus to be Holy and Blameless in his sight.
In Christ before the Foundations of the World
In christ we are chosen, loved, blameless, Holy and righteous and that is the pleasurable will of the father spoken even before the foundations of the World. In Christ We can boldly stand before the most Holy God unashamed, un condemned because we are hidden in the finished work of the cross. Even before the foundations of the world the father chose us in Christ Jesus to be one with him to live in awareness of our adoption into his Glorious family. What an honor.
It is beyond my comprehension that the father said it is by his will that he has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in Christ Jesus. Our blessings have been established in a real that governs all other realms of existence. Our father has identified us with his own son. My goodness what an honor it is to belong to the family of God, to give him Glory knowing that it has nothing to do with your works but everything to do with his Love. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us Romans 5:8.
