Scripture reading: Ephesians 1:10

By Mavis duCille

Let us start with a song:

Flow through me. Flow through me.
Let the lifeblood of Thy Body flow through me.
For Thou art my kinsman redeemer.
Flow through me. Flow through me. Flow through me.

Cover me. Cover me.
Spread the corner of Thy mantle over me.
For Thou art my nearest kinsman.
Cover me. Cover me. Cover me.

Flow through me. Flow through me.
Let the lifeblood of Thy Body flow through me.
For Thou art my kinsman redeemer.
Flow through me. Flow through me. Flow through me.

We do not want to miss this great and wonderful privilege and opportunity that the Lord is giving to us, to allow the lifeblood of His Body to flow through us. We are in a time, we are in an hour when God is bringing His people together. There is a gathering in the heavenlies, and He says that heaven will come down to earth. We are not looking to be lifted up to heaven. Heaven belongs to God. That is His kingdom! He reigns there! He said to Adam, “Have dominion on the earth,” and that is why the lifeblood of His body must flow through us. It is so that we might have that dominion. Amen.

He came to restore all that was lost in Adam, unto a people bought by His blood and sanctified by His spirit! He came to deliver us from all earthly things, and to quicken us by His Spirit, so that He can flow through us and help us to be delivered from the Adamic nature.

The Adamic nature has been the power of the destroyer all through the ages. Every move God makes has been doused and held back and destroyed by the power of the destroyer because we have not gotten rid of the Adamic nature! The Spirit of the Lord is therefore calling upon us, that He can flow through us to heal the land of all the pollution and all that has hindered the Church from moving on into the heavenly places, where Jesus shed His blood and lifted us up to be. Glory to God!

Let us examine ourselves, and let us bow under the mighty hand of God and allow Him to flow through us, so that there will be no space in our hearts and in our lives for all the things, the “Ites” and all the different things that the enemy is using to hinder the Church and to hold the blessings down. There are too many of them for us to go into them all at this moment, but as we examine ourselves, we will see what part we are playing in preventing the blood, the lifeblood, from flowing through us.

(Excerpt from The Omega Message, November 1999)

Thought for today: Let us examine ourselves, and let us bow under the mighty hand of God and allow Him to flow through us.

Scripture reading: Romans 6:10-13

The beginning of every spiritual achievement is founded in FAITH. From the depths of our sin-prone estate we look to the dizzy heights of Christ-like achievements like being “dead in Christ,” and some of us feel a deep kind of despair in that such an achievement is humanly unattainable. Humanly, yes, but IN CHRIST we can make it.

The first question therefore is how do I do it? The answer is loud and clear in the above passage in Romans 6 – by faith reckon it so. This is not some kind of mental or metaphysical exercise of the will, but a God given ability to believe God. The reckoning of the death of Jesus Christ to be my death can only be brought about by the knowledge of His life being my life, and the sure faith that the life of Christ in me will kill the Adamic life, which is ever present in the form of sin within my members.

One of the greatest signs of the life of Christ in me is the fact that I can see the Adamic nature within my own members.

There was a day in my youth when I went to God with the feeling that I thought I was free from all sin. But He said to me that I should sanctify myself. Naturally I asked Him how, and He told me to watch my members and keep them free from sin. The first few hours were disastrous…. I had sinned with my feet, my ears, my mind, my mouth, and my eyes – there was lusting, idleness, carnal mind, prying ears, and evil speaking. It was quite a shock for someone who thought he was holy. Only the Holy Ghost can reveal one’s sin to himself. The difference between God revealing sin, and the devil doing it, is that when God reveals sin it blesses the believer, the motive being to lift him up. When the devil does it, it is to cast down and deride.

If therefore, we are to reckon ourselves dead, we need first to know that we are not dead (dead to sin), but that we desire to be, and that this is attainable through the death of Jesus Christ, our Lord.

If we believe that we are joined to Jesus Christ by His death, and that His death is the death of the carnal man within us, then our reckoning this to be so will create within us the death to sin which we desire.

This is the first step towards being “dead in Christ”. In our next devotional we will deal with the second step that follows.

(Excerpt from The Omega Message, August 1984)

Thought for today: Even though being “dead in Christ” is humanly unattainable, it is reachable IN CHRIST by faith.
