Ephesians 2:6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus.
There is a firm spiritual law which is ‘Faith must precede practise’. Christians don’t live victoriously because we reverse this law; we put practise before faith. We ‘DO’ Christian things hoping that will build our faith instead of having faith and then doing what we are meant to do. This law is as constant as natural law. Faith must always come before practise. In other words, before we can behave like a child of God, we must believe that we are a child of God!
If you have given your life to Christ, do you believe that you are a child of God. If so, then you must also believe that you already sit in the heavenly realms Ephesians 1:3. What we need to know is what does “In The Heavenly Realms” mean? No one is actually sure what this strange expression really means, although we know it describes a spiritual dimension in which we have right to access the abundant heavenly blessings through faith in Christ. In this dimension, God has placed all the treasures of salvation, every spiritual blessing is located here in abundance, whatever we need from God, whatever God wants to give, is placed here, in the heavenly realms, and they have YOUR name engraved on them! Once we understand that we are in the heavenly realms today, then victory, joy and an abundance of blessings are ours to enjoy.
Are you seated in the heavenly realms with Christ today? If so, then all the abundance of heaven is at your disposal, all you have to do is take your authority in Christ, claim your blessing and victory, and walk in faith declaring it. It is yours; It is your right as a child of God; The blessings of God are at your disposal; Claim them in Jesus name and walk in victory today!
Have a ‘God’ day,
Pastor David Holt (MTh)
