2 We are fully loved by God God cannot love us more than he does today, but we can walk in to greater and greater revelation and experience of His love. Our experience is not the barometer of his love! The experience of Jesus' nearness and dearness is the by-product of seeking Him.

10 How Come we are:- We are Accepted, Secure and are Significant! Because The person who enters into Christ’s Kingdom at Salvation, inherits Jesus’ authority! because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions-it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:4-6

11 Eph 2:1-3 tells us that we used to be under the dominion of hell, Satan and his minions. Jesus, the great Saviour, came and delivered us from the dominion of Satan and transferred us into His kingdom. Jesus not only delivered us from Satan's domain, but He swept us up and seated us with Him in the heavenlies. Jesus rules over all the heavenlies, seated in the place of ultimate authority, and we reign with Him. We share in Jesus' own authority in the heavenlies. This is a present reality, not one that will be realised only the in future. We now possess every spiritual blessing in the heavenlies (1 :3) We now proclaim the manifold wisdom of God to the rulers and authorities in the heavenlies (3:10) ( God’s purpose in all this was to use the church to display his wisdom in its rich variety to all the unseen rulers and authorities in the heavenly places).

12 Really..... Yes For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head over every power and authority. Colossians 2:9-10

13 What’s the problem We are in a battle with the enemy of darkness who is constantly putting doubts into our mind that what we read and hear about Jesus from the pulpit is not entirely true! World’s fastest Indian Anthony Hopkins stars as Burt Monroe, a man who never let the dreams of youth fade. In the late 1960’s, after a lifetime of perfecting his classic Indian Motorcycle, Burt sets off from the bottom of the world, Invancargill, New Zealand, to clock his bike at Utah's Bonneville Salt Flats. With all the odds against him, Burt’s quest culminates in an unlikely conclusion and remains legendary within the motorcycle community to this day. Burt responds with a quote from Theodore Roosevelt

14 We live in two realms at the same time. The Heavenly Realm The Natural Realm

15 We live in two realms at the same time. The Heavenly Realm The Natural Realm Discerning and understanding the will and purpose of the Lord and His Kingdom and discerning the schemes of the enemy and his demons is central and fundamental and crucial to living the overcoming life in Christ. EVERYTHING WE COULD POSSIBLY NEED TO LIVE THIS JESUS-KIND-OF-LIFE ON EARTH HAS ALREADY BEEN GIVEN TO US AND SET WITHIN US!

16 Christ in us The first creation is fallen, marred, twisted, ruined and heading for destruction. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare. Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness. 2 Peter 3:10-13 This is the bad News

17 The Good News In the midst of this first creation God makes 'New Creations' to live to reveal his new life, power and presence. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! 2 Corinthians 5: Actually it’s Great News!!

18 How? The essence of the 'new creation' is that the man or woman is indwelt by the Holy Spirit. Christ has come to dwell in them. You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ. But if Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin, yet your spirit is alive because of righteousness. Romans 8:9-10 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20 To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Colossians 1 :27

19 We are human beings, with a personality, imagination filled with wills, and emotions. We are human beings, with a personality, imagination filled with wills, and emotions. Empty Soul Before Christ

20 We are human beings, with a personality, imagination filled with wills, and emotions. We are human beings, with a personality, imagination filled with wills, and emotions. Empty Soul Spirit filled Before Christ in Christ In Christ we are human beings filled with the Spirit of God, with a personality, imagination, will and emotions powered by Jesus. In Christ we are human beings filled with the Spirit of God, with a personality, imagination, will and emotions powered by Jesus.

21 Living the New Life Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honour at God’s right hand. Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God. And when Christ, who is your life, is revealed to the whole world, you will share in all his glory. Col 3:1-4(NLT)

22 Really..... Yes For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head over every power and authority. Colossians 2:9-10

23 We are now in Christ We have a new identity and nature for everything is in Christ when we release our will to Him Paul uses the phrase “in Christ” 88 times We therefore live in the two realms the heavenly realm and the earthly realm. Colossians 3 You have been raised to life with Christ. Now set your heart on what is in heaven, where Christ rules at God's right side. Think about what is up there, not about what is here on earth. You died, which means that your life is hidden with Christ, who sits beside God. Christ gives meaning to your life, and when he appears, you will also appear with him in glory. Col 3:1-4 (CEV)

24 In Christ we have the capacity to become like Christ For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head over every power and authority. Col 2:9-10 Therefore all the power and authority that Christ had when He walked the earth you have now.

25 Let’s always remember that, “In Christ”, we are accepted, we are Secure and we are Significant!
