Way More than you thought!
John 14:6, Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
Last week we completed the first phase of our series looking at the truth
1. God is infinitely good far more loving, gentle, and kind to His children than any earthly Father imaginable
2. God is also infinitely complete nothing can threaten or disturb Him, Nothing can be taken away from Him, making Him less or complete nor added to Him to make Him more complete.
Today we start looking at the Way!
3. Your Journey now is to see and align yourself with who you truly are, because you are the light of the world, the or the daughter of your Father, a new creature flowing with more beauty and power than you dare to imagine possible.
The First Adam
Genesis 1:26, Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them have dominion.”Genesis 2:7, “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.”Genesis 2:16-17, “And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”
The second Adam
1 Corinthians 15:45, And so it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being.”
The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.
That means the first one brought death. The second one died and restored life.
Romans 5:12, “Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned.”Romans 5:18, “Therefore, as through one man’s offense judgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through one Man’s righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life. For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.”
1. The Story
Seduced by the prospect of being equal with God, Adam and Eve thought, not your will but mine, and the consumed the knowledge of good and evil. When they did their eyes were opened to darkness! No longer did they only experience light. Now blinded to the light. They immediately judged themselves (shame), they blamed each other (judgement), And this is how darkness, evil, blindness, grievance and judgement took over the world.When you were born you suffered the consequence of Adam’s decision. You had no choice in the matter. How powerful was Adams choice? His one act enslaved every human soul. This is only half of the story.
2. The good news that undoes all the work of darkness.
The second Adam, far more powerful then the first. Jesus, the very Word that spoke everything into existence, came as Light to shine into all of the darkness. Jesus came to put the first Adam in you to death. Restore your identity in your Father. John 12:28, Father glorify Your name. Then a voice from heaven, saying, “I have both glorified it and I will glorify it again.”Jesus went to the second garden: Gethsemane. To undo what the first did in Eden. So that the Father’s identity could be glorified in mankind, again. Not my will but yours! Where man was taken out of the garden, now the garden is inside of man. The fruit of the spirit, Life only comes from Jesus! Remember, He is the Way the truth and the Life!
3. Aligning with the Way.
That I might know Him and the power of His resurrection. That I might know Him and the power of my resurrection in Him. No struggle. No darkness in light. It is finished. Experience peace. Death has no Sting. It is only a shadow. Align with the light. You are the light of the world!
Your Journey now is to see and align yourself with who you truly are, because you are the light of the world, the or the daughter of your Father, a new creature flowing with more beauty and power than you dare to imagine possible.
Colossians 1:24-29, “I can even celebrate the sorrows I have experienced on your behalf; for as I join with you in your difficulties, it helps you to discover what lacks in your understanding of the sufferings Jesus Christ experienced for his body, the church. This is the very reason I’ve been made a minister by the authority of God and a servant to his body, so that in his detailed plan I would fully equip you with the Word of God. There is a divine mystery—a secret surprise that has been concealed from the world for generations, but now it’s being revealed, unfolded and manifested for every holy believer to experience. Living within you is the Christ who floods you with the expectation of glory! This mystery of Christ, embedded within us, becomes a heavenly treasure chest of hope filled with the riches of glory for his people, and God wants everyone to know it! Christ is our message! We preach to awaken hearts and bring every person into the full understanding of truth. It has become my inspiration and passion in ministry to labor with a tireless intensity, with his power flowing through me, to present to every believer the revelation of being his perfect one in Jesus Christ.”
