Death is the very nature of all men, whom the life giving spirit of the second Adam has not been embraced through faith. It is by grace we have been saved! Yes, we have been saved from the crutches of death, that dictated human existence through the disobedience of the first man, Adam. We were not saved from death to figure out how to live to overcome death and sin in this world. We were graciously regenerated by the new life of the resurrected Christ into our comatose spirit, becoming enlivened, interfacing with a higher life, an incorruptible life. We are the new species of the Highest expressions, vessels of mercy for the manifestation of His glory.

The principle of Sin and death has been nailed to His cross, and triumphantly, we are marching to Zion, the holy city, clothed with His life and glory

“Wherefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature: the old things are passed away; behold, they are become new. But all things are of God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and gave unto us the ministry of reconciliation; to wit, that God was in Christ reconciling the world unto himself, not reckoning unto them their trespasses, and having committed unto us the word of reconciliation. We are ambassadors therefore on behalf of Christ, as though God were entreating by us: we beseech you on behalf of Christ, be ye reconciled to God. Him who knew no sin he made to be sin on our behalf; that we might become the righteousness of God in him.”
‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭5:17-21‬ ‭ASV‬‬

There is a blessedness of eternal hope in redemption for the follower of Christ

Firstly, the awareness of your transition from slavery into a new and an eternal administration of Christ Jesus, that turns servants into first class citizenship and sons in God brings a great joy within your spirit, possessing every fiber of your being. This is the joy, that you are no more bound forever to the old economy of sin and death, but have been freed and incorporated into the riches of a new life of God in Christ Jesus, clothed in royalty. This spiritual awareness develops us into a more matured adults in the realities of God, to extend the frontiers of our new found Kingdom on this side of life

Secondly, in redemption, our spirits are captured into an eternal hope, unperturbed by the cunning enterprise of the arch enemy of our souls, Satan; the Egyptians, sin and death; pursuing us on every front to hold us back from our heavenly ambitions. This hope in our hearts is anchored in this promise, that the Egyptians we see today shall be seen again no more. There will come a day when Sin and death shall be cast out completely and be destroyed in His appearance. This eternal hope tucked inside our hearts by the Spirit presence in our spirit, is the reason we never give up on this side, against the storms of the enemy in our flesh. The sting of death produces all kinds of evil in our flesh, to try to dissuade and weaken our conviction in this blessedness we have in Christ.

“But when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy victory? O death, where is thy sting? The sting of death is sin; and the power of sin is the law: but thanks be to God, who giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭15:54-57‬ ‭ASV‬‬

Our preeminence is Christ. Our eternal destination is Christ. Our eternal journey is Christ, and the live we live and move daily, must be from Christ Jesus.

There are seasons in this journeys, when all hell will broke loose on you, trying to kill this life in you, so as to shift you back to the former way of life, wrapped in self and bondage, instead of resting and functioning in the life of victory in Christ Jesus. Brothers and Sisters, flesh and blood shall not enter the kingdom of God. What will endure to the end is the life of Christ that flows through us. So let us look beyond our adversities, temptations and failures, and hold on to the life giving spirit of the second Adam in faith. It is of Him we have the victory through the darkest days, when our feet are hanging on fiery furnace of sin and afflictions. The flesh profit nothing. Stay, abide in Christ, just as you were redeemed without your effort, but His faith in your heart

“Fear not the things which thou art about to suffer: behold, the devil is about to cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days. Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee the crown of life. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches. He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.”
‭‭Revelation‬ ‭2:10-11‬ ‭ASV‬‬

His words to the Church of Smyrna, still echoes into the corridors of the church today…

Jesus has conquered sin and brought us out from Egypt. Let us hold on to Him until we sing this glorious song with the Lord someday; “Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy victory? O death, where is thy sting? Maranatha Come! Our feet may be swollen with weariness and doubts but we look to you. Maranatha, Come!


There are days I feel so miserable, even in the sufficiency of life, when my eyes is not directly set on Christ Jesus. There is a new generation of believers, who are by faith, willing to draw from the abundance of the riches of Christ, because they have come to realize the insufficiency and frailty of their mortal life, without Christ. Welcome to a new era, where wise men are retreating to seek the face of Christ, to grow into intimacy in His presence, and mature into a stature of true overcomers

Colossians‬ ‭1:27-28‬ ‭CSB‬‬ “God wanted to make known among the Gentiles the glorious wealth of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. We proclaim him, warning and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone mature in Christ.”

Are you ready to cash out? To be mature in Christ is to be rich in the multifaceted realities of God which is domiciled in Christ Jesus. The goal of the gospel is to draw fallen, bankrupt men, into a life of the divine economy, which is Christ Jesus, to be the expressive application in our born again spirit. God want to mirror His life in us, so His household; the church, can relate with Him in love, and touch the world in accordance with His purpose and plans.

Such men, who have yielded themselves to the government from above, they do not live from the inclinations of the soul life, which is their individual self, corrupted by the fall. Jesus, in the gospel of Mathew, admonished us, through the disciples, to deny “that self life” which seeks to rebel at any given time against the government of the Father, seeking personal ambitions as opposed to Gods will. “Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If anyone wants to follow after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭16:24‬ ‭CSB‬‬

The wealth of God is the Christ, and the poverty of men is to be alive without Christ

Through personal observations, I see a church, who is rich in earth goods but deprived of the rich and fuller life of God. The difference between the church and the world is the source of our life. We are not competing with the world on the same stage of life. Though we are in the world yet we are not from the world. The life we live is supplied from the glorious wealth of the mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. The world operates from the economy of the self, corrupted by sin but Jesus is the head of the church and it is through His life we live, move and have our being. This rich well should not be filled with stones and covered with man made traditions. It is time to draw from the wells of our salvation [See Isaiah 12:1-5]

One of the key component of exercising ourselves in this all inclusive riches of Christ is humility. The worlds approach to life is based on natural prowess and abilities. The world depends solely on self efforts. That is the bottom line of every human enterprise. So the goal of the world is self development and living to please self and fulfill personal ambitions and vain glory. On the side of the church, we outsource our life from Christ, and in order to do so, one must come to the end of self and solely depend on the supply of God from the riches of Christ Jesus in our born again spirit. This was epitomized in life of Paul when he was converted into Christ. He trumpeted so loudly… “Christ lives in me”

Galatians‬ ‭2:20‬ ‭CSB “I have been crucified with Christ, and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”‬‬

Many people do not know Christ from this end. Do you know why? Because Christ is not the life we live. It took me many years before I saw the light of Christ being the life I have to yield to in my everyday life, if I want to please the Father in my vessel. Until we grasp the rich life of God in our born again spirit, and by faith aligned with that rich life in our renewed minds, We will continue our walk on the same path like unbelievers, who depend on the god of self in all things. Most of us in the body of Christ see Christ Jesus as the option for our personal ambitions and journey when the going gets tough for us. In our hearts, we are saying; “Jesus handle the tough challenges and let us deal with the day to day familiar life.” Jesus want to be Lord in every detail of our lives. If we see that, we will learn to trust Him and get Him involved in everything. That is what true Christianity is

To live like that makes us carnal in most part of our daily lives. We use our carnal judgements, and approach everything, disconnected from our source. Just as we received Christ, we must continue in Him to the end. He is our life from the start to the end. And just as we received Christ, not on the basis of our human strength, we should love, pray, give, smile, plan, work, and impact every space of this life in the fullness of His life. Positionally, we may confess that Christ is our wisdom, redemption, and righteousness, and that is an undeniable truth in Christ and yet experientially be bankrupt in all these areas in our life. Confessing truth does not mean in practice, our lives are yielded to that higher life to manipulate many of our decisions. [ See James 4:6, 2 Corinthians 1210, Galatians 2:20-21, Colossians 1:18-20, Ephesians 3:7-10, John 3:6-7]

“This grace was given to me — the least of all the saints — to proclaim to the Gentiles the incalculable riches of Christ, and to shed light for all about the administration of the mystery hidden for ages in God who created all things. This is so that God’s multi-faceted wisdom may now be made known through the church to the rulers and authorities in the heavens. This is according to his eternal purpose accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭3:8-11‬ ‭CSB‬‬

Christ Jesus is the compendium of the wealth of God for the enrichment of the church.

He is not just an experience we waiting for in the distant future. He is the true riches of God for our exploration and enjoyment today, and tomorrow, and forevermore
