It is a new week and I pray that the Lord showers you with the knowledge of the riches of His grace, mercy, kindness, and favour and that they would rest upon you and all that you do. Today I want to share a vision the Lord gave me as I was praying over the saints.
There are times when the Lord engages me with a thought He wants to talk about and this particular morning it was about what a child of God is and means. WOW! We are so much more than we think. As I began thinking about “a child” of God I saw a little human like figure, but it was as bright as the sun. Scripture often uses the words “like a son of man” and for the first time I understood what this looks like.
As a child born of Adam, you look like an earthly human being but as a child born of God, a new creation, you are somehow both a son of man and still look “human” but you also look like a son of God and you shine brighter than the sun. As I looked at this spectacular little light being I saw the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit form a circle around this little child which they referred to as, “My child” and then pulled this child into the center of them where no one and nothing could touch it.
Therefore, if anyone is in the Messiah, he is a new creation. Old things have disappeared, and — look! — all things have become new! (2 Cor 5:17 ISV)
Notice how the Scripture says that anyone who is IN the Messiah (in Christ) he/she is a new creation. I want you to pay attention to the words “in” and “new creation.” The word “in” means to be included, in a particular location/place and a position. You have been included into His very being (place) and given a position of power and authority. Next it says you are a new creation. A new creation is something that did not exist before. This is a creation that came into being when Jesus rose from the dead, made provision for the purification of sin, and sat down at the right hand of the Father. From there the Holy Spirit now takes His pure blood and brings a child (you) into being – spotless, pure, holy, and righteous. There is no sin and fault or death in this creation, this child that He has brought forth is now the prized possession and inheritance of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, you are no longer human! You are a unique and spectacular creation of God! And here on earth you are an alien. 😊 In the Book of Revelation Jesus calls you a king and a priest unto His Father. Please understand that you are incredibly holy and awesome.
What amazed me and made me tremble was the love and protection of God over this child and how precious this child is to Him. Then the Lord spoke to me.
“Every child that is born of the Father is holy, pure, and precious and protected by Him. He (the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit) see no sin, fault or failure with His precious child and protects it with His life. Neither has He entrusted the protection of His child (you) to an angel or any other heavenly being, it is protected and nurtured by God alone.”
I want you to close your eyes and imagine yourself as this holy and awesome child of light. I want you to see yourself in His presence without fault, without criticism, without blame. See yourself holy and without sin. This is who you really are because this is who you are in Him as His child now. This is not who you will be one day when you die, it is who you are right now.
Yes, you will probably be assailed by all sorts of negative thoughts and accusations telling you that you are not like this. And from a human or flesh point of view this does not look like the truth. But that does not mean it is not true. You are an eternal child of God, NOW!
Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy; to the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen. (Jude 1:24-25 KJV)
So how does all this work in what we think of as “the real world?”
