Living By Faith

DARE TO DECLARE THAT YOU ARE RIGHTEOUS IN CHRIST

Who shall lay anything to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. (Romans 8:33-34)

“Faith will not work in an atmosphere of unforgiveness.” -Kenneth E. Hagin

I once heard Dad Hagin say,“If the devil can get you in condemnation, he’ll cheat you out of your inheritance.”  When we receive forgiveness and freely forgive others, and ourselves, our faith will work properly. God forgives us so radically and totally, that He commands us to forgive others the same way.  God’s kind of forgiveness erases the memory of all sin, failure, guilt, and accusation. We plead our case with the Word of God and the blood of Jesus.

In 2 Corinthians 5:21, God declares us righteous in Christ. Righteousness is a free gift and those that receive it will reign in life through Christ Jesus. This revelation of righteousness makes us glad. These are days of Heaven on Earth, so go ahead and laugh at the devil.

Confession: I have been made the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. I receive this free gift and reign in life through Christ Jesus! (2 Corinthians 5:21; Romans 5:17)

EXPERIENCING THE GLORY FOR YOURSELF

O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; To see thy power and thy GLORY, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary. (Psalm 63:1-2)

“God wants to do something in you that will shock a generation!” -Mark Hankins

When Paul stood before King Agrippa he explained his experience with glory of the risen Christ. He said, “I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun…”(Acts 26:13)

I remember when I was 17 years old, I cried out and said, “God, show me your glory. I can’t live off my parents’ experience, sermon, or vision.”I wanted to experience the glory of God for myself.

God wants you to experience more glory this year than you did last year. Paul said every believer should not only have an initial experience with the glory, but should go from glory to glory.

Confession:  But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.  (2 Corinthians 3:18)

GLORY…GET LOADED

For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea. (Habakkuk 2:14)

“Our prayers, faith, and giving tap into God’s treasury…GLORY!” -Mark Hankins

The Old Testament word for glory is kabod. It simply means heavy. The best way to see it is heavy or loaded with the goodness of God. In 2Chronicles5&7, as the people praised God saying, “The Lord is good and his mercy endureth forever,” the glory filled the temple. Heavyfilled the house and the priests could not stand up. The manifested presence of God filled the temple. That is why today we can be so filled with the glory of God that we get loaded with God’s goodness; we get saturated with the life of God.

The New Testament word for glory is doxa. It is the light of the Gospel that shines and dispels all darkness and all the works of the devil!

Our prayers, faith, and giving tap into God’s treasury…GLORY! My God shall supply all of your need according to His riches in GLORY by Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19)

Confession: The glory of God loads me with His goodness and is the light of the Gospel that shines and dispels all darkness and all the works of the devil in my life!

THE GLORY… CONTEND, CONTAIN, CARRY

Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the GLORY of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. (Colossians 1:26-27)

“The glory of God is one of the most outstanding characteristics about God.” -Mark Hankins

God has called us in the new covenant to be carriers of the glory.  We contain and carry the glory of Jesus. The glory of God is one of the most outstanding characteristics about God. It is literally His manifested presence. Even though God is everywhere, His presence is not manifested everywhere.

We must lift our voice and contend for the glory of God to be manifested in this generation. As we lift our voice and speak of His glory, there will be a radical change of scenery in our lives today!

Confession: I lift my voice and contend for the Glory! This mystery, which has been hid from ages and generations, is now made manifest to the saints: Christ in me, the hope of glory! (Colossians 1:26-27)

THE LAW OF SAMENESS

But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. (Romans 8:11)

“No other religion can say what the Christian can; that is, that our God lives in us.” – T. L. Osborn

The same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead dwells in us. The identical life that raised Christ from the dead is inside the believer. We share the same righteousness and the same victory that is in Christ. If we see what God sees, we would see that we have the same Spirit that raised Christ. We have the same anointing that was and is on Him. He is the Anointed One, and we are in Him.

God did not give us an inferior product. He gave us the very life of Christ Himself; it is identical! Satan does not want the Church to understand or walk in the reality of our redemption in Christ.

Once you climb up in Him, then God will change your name and tell you who you are. Your friends and family will not tell you who you are. God says, “I will tell you who you are!”

Confession: I was identified with Christ in His death and resurrection. Right now, I have the same spirit, the same righteousness, the same victory, and the same blessing!
