Scripture reading: Revelation 19:1-10

Let me share with you very important truth: The glory of God is coming down to us and we are going up to meet Him. We are being raptured (this is the right kind of rapture) – that is, we are being changed from glory to glory as we behold His face. We are being lifted into the glory of God. In this glory, we are going to see and hear things which we have never seen or heard before. We will see clearly and walk and talk with those who are in the heavenlies. Brother John said in Revelation 19:10 that an angel came to him and confessed that he was one of his brothers who was saved by Jesus Christ.

In Revelation 22, another angel came to him, and John said to himself that this surely must be Jesus Christ Himself, but this angel also confessed that he was not, but that he was “…of thy brethren the prophets,” (verse 9). It was only a man who had gone into the glorious presence of God. God is saying that He is giving the glory to us, and that we are expected not to just receive it and say, “Yes” for next service, but we need to walk in it.

Let us read Ephesians 1:19-20, “And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places.”

Ephesians 2:10, “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”

In other words, our power is in Christ. Galatians 3:28 says that in Christ, “…There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus,” yet we know that there is “male and female” in the homes, in the Church, and in the world; and that male and female have to operate together in God’s divine order. There is, however, a higher dimension in the Spirit, when Christ begins to speak through anyone and neither the male nor the female voice carries the greater authority – it is Christ speaking. We are talking about children of God getting in Christ in order to get through the veil into the Holy of Holies.

(Excerpt from The Omega Message, April 1997, pg. 13-14)

Thought for today: Let us meditate upon the glory of God that is coming down and lifting us up into the heavenly places. And let us remember that our power is in Christ only.

Scripture reading: John 1:4-5

The devil must be really mad to know that there is such a thing named LIFE! It is written in John 1:4-5, “IN HIM WAS LIFE AND THE LIFE WAS THE LIGHT OF MEN. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.” 

In this passage, the word translated “comprehended” could be better rendered “overcame.” The devil cannot overcome life for the life is the light. We are actually taking in more and more of the light and the life, which is more and more of Christ which is our resurrection. BY OUR DAILY SPIRITUAL GROWTH, WE ARE ACTUALLY TAKING IN CHRIST. WE ARE TAKING IN OUR RESURRECTION. THE MORE YOU OPEN UP TO GOD, THE MORE THE CHRIST COMES IN. CHRIST IS OUR LIFE! (See Colossians 3:4.)

Imagine a picture of the Great Almighty God, Author and Possessor of this great reservoir called LIFE. The name of God’s LIFE is Christ (Messiah). He dipped into His bosom and took out “Messiah,” and let Him loose in the earth. The life came down as an entity in the person of Jesus Christ. God can divide Himself in as many parts as He wants to since He has power over all things and all things are subject to His will.

In Luke 1, the Holy Ghost overshadowed Mary with her consent. The conversation that the angel had with her was designed to get her consent. When Mary accepted what the angel said, he departed. He was only the messenger. The Holy Ghost then came and overshadowed her, meaning to say that the Holy Ghost planted the seed of Life in her, and she became pregnant, because that was the will of God. Some ignorant people felt this was a sexual thing. God is the Creator. He created Adam and Eve. He created the first man, and He was in the process of creating the second man. The first man, “Adam,” was a full-grown man; the second man was born in a manger, sired of God, born of a woman. The first man, “Adam,” was a natural man, and the second man, “the Lord from heaven.” (See I Corinthians 15:47).

May God bless our understanding. God put Jesus into Mary and Christ into Jesus. Therefore, when Mary birthed Jesus as a babe, she brought forth Christ in the earth. Since Christ is the Messiah, the second person of the Godhead from before the foundation of the world, then the birth of Jesus Christ was the entrance of God as a member of the human race.

When we receive Christ in us through the action of the Holy Spirit, then we are on par with Jesus when He was born of Mary in Bethlehem of Judea. Jesus, therefore, did not need to be born again, since He was never born of corruptible seed. Because we were born of corruptible seed, we need to be born again.

You were first born in Adam, then you were born in Christ. A charge of LIFE came into the earth in Jesus Christ, and then the charge came into you as an individual. This life is eternal; it cannot die.

(Excerpt from The Omega Message, June 1996, pg. 4-5)

Thought for today: Let us grow daily in God in order to take in Christ, to take in our resurrection. The more you open up to God, the more the Christ comes in. Christ is our life!

Scripture reading: Revelation 6:7-8

When the fourth seal was opened (see Revelation 6:7-8), John saw a “PALE” horse and the name of the one who sat on the horse was Death. Death was riding. Can you imagine that death will be riding to and fro through the earth? We have seen this and it is getting worse. “Hell followed,” the Bible says. Death strikes them down and hell swallows them up. We are talking about the death of many sinners. Sinner’s blood will be shed.

You wonder why Satan would kill his own people. He has no power unless he gets it from the human realm. Satan has to kill people in order to get their blood. Blood must be shed for Satan’s kingdom to go on. It is like how we kill cattle to get the strength to carry on our lives; we eat meat. Satan lives on humanity.

In Genesis 3:14b God cursed Satan, “Upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life.” In verse 19 of the same chapter, God said to Adam, “Dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.” Man became DEVIL’S FOOD. It is terrible, but it is great. If you could control the food of your enemy, then you would be assured of victory. All you would have to do is starve him out. If Satan can tempt us and we yield, he takes our energy, he takes our life. If we rise up IN CHRIST, he gets less and less from us. Then he has to depend on the people of the world for his food. You can see what is happening. Eventually, we will overthrow him, because we will cast him entirely out of our lives and out of our business.

(Excerpt from The Book of Revelation, Volume 1, pages 114-115)

Thought for today: Let us not submit to the devil’s tricks but let us starve him out so that he would be entirely cast out of our lives.
