Rhapsody of Realities 10 October 2019 By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome — We Have The Fullness Of Christ
Topic: We Have The Fullness Of Christ
And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power (Colossians 2:10).
When you received the Holy Spirit, you received the fullness of God. There’s nothing of God that’s supposed to be in you that’s not already in you. This is too sublime! No wonder, you’re unconquerable. You’re not a mere man. Your humanity was supplanted by the life and nature of God.
We have something in our day that the prophets and priests of the Old Testament didn’t have: The capacity to contain the fullness of the Spirit. You’re God’s living tabernacle; when you move, it’s the Spirit of God moving in you. Your hands have become His hands, and your fingers, His fingers; you’re immersed in Him and He in you. He sees through your eyes, talks through your mouth, and moves with your body. He changes lives through you! Hallelujah!
The Bible says in John 1:16, “…of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.” We have received in all fullness, everything that’s of deity in Christ Jesus. This isn’t just in measure, but in quality and in the variety of potentialities available in Him. All of His power, glory, might, strength and wisdom—everything that He represents, everything that’s contained in Him-we’ve received!
Imagine what your life would be if you lived every day with the consciousness that, indeed, you’re replete with God; full of Him! Jesus said in John 5:26: “For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself.” Jesus didn’t need more life from God; He had inherent life. But recall our opening verse; it says, “Ye are complete in Him,” meaning, all that He’s got, we‘ve received.
You’ve received of His ability, wisdom, knowledge, glory, and have been made an associate of the God-kind. No wonder John submits in 1 John 4:17, “…as he is, so are we in this world.” Glory to God!
Blessed Father, how wonderful it is to be filled with your fullness and receive of your ability, wisdom, grace, power and strength! It’s such an honour to be the carrier and dispenser of everything divine. I impact my world with the power and dominion of your righteousness that I bear, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Colossians 1:19; For it pleased [the Father] that in him should all fulness dwell;
Colossians 2:9-10 AMPC; For in Him the whole fullness of Deity (the Godhead) continues to dwell in bodily form [giving complete expression of the divine nature]. 10 And you are in Him, made full and having come to fullness of life [in Christ you too are filled with the Godhead—Father, Son and Holy Spirit—and reach full spiritual stature]. And He is the Head of all rule and authority [of every angelic principality and power].
1 Corinthians 3:16 NKJV; Do you not know that you are the temple of God and [that] the Spirit of God dwells in you?
