PERSPECTIVE AND REVELATION
But God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us, even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) and hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. (Ephesians 2:4-6)
“I never smoked marijuana and I never took LSD, but the night revelation hit me, I got higher than a kite.” – Mark Hankins
One Friday night I was sitting with some friends of mine at my dad’s church. We studied Ephesians 2:4-6, and something different happened on this particular Friday night!
Suddenly, the eyes of my understanding were flooded with light! These were not just words and normal mental, intellectual knowledge. Revelation hit me, and I saw with my spirit eyes the light of redemption, the light of the Gospel; I saw that I was made alive with the life of Christ! The same life that God gave to Christ, the very same life that raised Him up out of hell — God gave that same life to me! He quickened me with the same life and then raised me up together with Him. Now I am seated with Christ in heavenly places!
Confession: God has given me the same life that He gave to Christ when He raised Him up out of hell! Now I am seated with Christ in heavenly places! (Ephesians 2:6)
