The time has come for us to engage our thoughts with throne room realities – the Finished works of Christ – not on things of this world. Through His precious and magnificent promises, His divine power has granted to us all things pertaining to life and godliness, that we might become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust. We have been chosen in Him before the foundation of the world. Our original identity is defined by God – who knew that our pre-Adamic innocence would be redeemed through the obedience of Christ. Before the Fall of man, immortality and glory were the original state of man, who was created in the image and likeness of God.
God rescued the integrity of our original design and revealed that we have always been His own, even before time was! And He revealed this by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who abolished death, and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. He who raised Jesus from the dead will also give life to our mortal bodies through His Spirit who indwells us. All creation is waiting for our predestined adoption as sons – the redemption of our body!
