With Him in Glory
Read – Colossians 3:1-4
We have been raised together in Christ in heavenly places so it only makes – God – sense that having been raised with Christ, we should seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.
When I was called up into the heavenly realm, many of these scriptures became signposts of discovery and altars of authority. I asked myself what are the things above? Are they concerns of the earth? Unfinished business of heaven yet to be completed on earth? Were they things that we were doing – or not doing – that were impacting heavens ability to perform salvation?
I had to answer, I didn’t know what they were, but, I knew they were not things on the earth where we are. It seemed I had a choice, I could seek the things above where Christ is, because in Christ I was also there, or stay in the earthly realm of existence, struggle, pursuit, and accomplishments.
Since that time in 2011 I have discovered that the things above are all that has been accomplished for us in Christ, His glory. His riches of grace. His riches in glory.
Now I am experiencing a transference of wealth as heaven is coming to earth, or better said as Christ is appearing and I am appearing with Him. This is the manifestation of the sons of God that is promised in the last days. It is only beginning and will grow it manifestation.
Meditate these passages and see the heavenly realm. See the finished work of Christ, totally complete, nothing lacking, all encompassing, victorious, glorious, triumphant, and overcoming. Death swallowed up in
victory, sorrow swallowed up in joy, beauty swallowing ashes, suffering yielding to glory.
Enlarge your imagination to see all that Christ has accomplished, then see your life hidden in Christ. What does that mean? What about all the incomplete things yet undone? Does that mean these things are not in Christ? No, they only mean that on earth they have not yet been revealed in Christ.
Now meditate yourself appearing with Christ in glory. What does that look like? What does that feel like? How will your circumstances respond then?
As you do this exercise of faith through worship and meditation become aware that the Lord is much more present here than when we try to compel Him to change our circumstances. Why? Because here it is done, complete, finished, victorious, all that will be ours – now in the presence of Christ.
Remember He chose you, and has chosen your appearing with Him in glory.
