In this service Apostle Edmonds continues the series of the message "Christ in You" and unlocks the importance of submitting wholly to the word of God because this is what life generated is all about. Listen to the above audio for the full message and be blessed!
We have been in the series of “Christ in you” and that is an explosion because when you begin to understand that Christ is in you, you become a different category of Christians. The bible says ‘Christ in you’ is the hope of glory. In this message, we are talking about procreation of life generated.
Many people don’t know that even though they are a Christian, Christ life might not be seen in them. This is the key when the book of Colossians 1v27, when the Bible says that ‘Christ in You’ is the hope of glory. So, it is not enough to know Him or to love Him or plan for Him but ‘He in you’ is the hope of a glorious life. This does not mean your believing either.
Galatians 4v19; “My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you”. Here Apostle Paul is not talking to people who are children or youngsters but to Christians who might be older than him by age but in Christ Jesus, you become like a baby because it is a whole different kingdom entirely from what you have on this earth. So, when you come into Christ you have to learn the ways of the kingdom of God. In other words, you have to learn to live the life that you have received like you need a manual to understand an appliance. In the same way you need the word of God to release the procreative force of the life of God.
Life of God generated is all about unlocking to you the importance of submitting wholly to the word of God. You might know the word of God; you might be good in theology or good in preaching and even quote all the verses so correctly but that does not unlock the procreative force of Christ life. Many people like to go to prayer meetings and do spiritual things like fasting etc, but that even does not unlock the procreative force of Christ life. What unlocks the procreative force of Christ life is submission to the word of Christ. In Colossians 3v16, the Bible says “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly...” You will never know the ‘Christ in You’ until you submit totally to the word of Christ that is in you. You will never unlock the giant of God’s life in you until you submit wholly to the words of Christ in you.
Don’t let your attention or service be divided. The Bible talks about two masters that we are not of those who serve two masters. We serve a living God. Hallelujah! When trouble strikes, run to God don’t run from Him.
There are some Christians who feel ‘wow’ when they come into Christ. Let Christ come in you, you will see the procreative force of the life of God working through you. For eg. Just imagine, you operating without fear, how you will be? That’s one of the characteristics of Christ in you – Fear nothing! We are not talking about arrogance but revelation. People can be arrogant or ignorant but we are not talking about that, we are talking about an act that is ignited by revelation. A living that is inspired by revelation not by any other deficiency. The Bible talks about “Until Christ be formed in you” in Galatians 4v19. It is not saying you to be saved but it is a level where Christians should operate. It is a level where God is inviting all of us in walking. “You in Christ’ is the beginning in the index of salvation but Christ in You is the ultimate. Every one of the disciples entered into that realm. When you see them, you see Christ in them. That is why they were called ‘Christians’. Analyze for yourself if you are a Christian in this line of thoughts!
Christ is a vaccination, a protection but if you don’t know, it will not be unlocked. In the Bible, apostle Paul got bitten by a viper but he did not scream. We have the tendency to feel shocked and fear but remind yourself of who you truly are. It sounds so nice but it is very real. Man of faith doesn’t really know what the situation is but his faith in God aligns him to the will of God in every situation. Man or woman of God please God in every situation. When you put the Word in you and when situation comes, the Word will come out but if you play when you are supposed to put the Word in you and when situations strike you, you will complain and cry.
John 12v24 NIV); “Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.” It is a discovery that Christ is in you. And it is in you to submit to ‘Christ in you’. Until you submit wholly to the word of God, that procreative force will be locked up within you. Like the corn seed that dies and then life comes out of it, you must experience dying; your tongue must die; your eyes must die. It is not biological death but spiritual experience of the season of old era of your life and coming into a new place where Christ is all in all and for all.
In the second part of the message, Apostle Edmonds taught on developing new lifestyle that will maintain and make our environment better for us and our children in the future.
