Reborn Unto Glory
Reborn unto Glory
No, the wisdom we speak of is the mystery of God —his plan that was previously hidden, even though he made it for our ultimate glory before the world began.But the rulers of this world have not understood it; if they had, they would not have crucified our glorious Lord.
1 Corinthians 2:7-8 NLT
Had the devil known that the suffering and death of Christ would lead to the birth of the new man, made to reclaim dominion over the earth rightfully belonging to man, he would have tried to prevent it from happening.
But glory to God it did happen! For the spirit that was at work in Christ is now at work in you… So there no limit to the wondrous things the spirit can enable you to do…unlimited potentials
The death of Jesus the Christ marked the death of the sinful nature of man(through the sin of the first Adam – 1cor 15v21)which kept us in slavery and oppression and as He resurrected, it gave rise to the birth of sons of God(joint-heirs with Christ) who have won back our birth right to rule and have dominion over all things both powers and principalities(Eph. 2vs6).
We are reborn to take dominion and establish the influence of God on earth.
And how do we take dominion and influence earth for God?
Firstly by accepting Jesus as your Lord and savior, following the ways and precept of Christ, doing the will of the father through our action and living a life of holiness just like Christ by not conforming to the destructive ways of this world which ends in death, but living by the standard of God (Deuteronomy 10:12-13)
