More Than Conquerors in the Darkest of Times, Part 4: Victory in Context 3

[Series: More Than Conquerors in the Darkest of Times] Believer, do you know that the old sinner you is dead and buried? Do you know that you are dead to sin? Do you know that you are also dead to the law? In this episode we talk about the NEW YOU:

  • The power of believing a lie versus the power of believing the Truth of God’s Word.
  • Romans 6: Know, Reckon, Yield. Your union with Christ means that you have been crucified together with Christ and died. Therefore, you are dead to sin and alive to God. What it means to “reckon” and what it means to “yield”.
  • Romans 7: the most misunderstood chapter in all the Bible! The believer has died not only to sin, but also the law. What the real purpose of the law is. What the so-called “struggle” verses of 14-24 really mean.
  • Romans 8:1-14 – There are two races of humans: those IN THE FLESH and those IN THE SPIRIT. What it means to live according to the flesh and according to the Spirit.

Exposing Satan’s Master Scheme: To Be Like God WITHOUT GOD – Pt. 5

[Part 5 of 5] While Satan’s plan to keep us away from God is devious — by distracting us with DOING to be like God — God’s REALITY for the new order of our being is INFINITELY better than DO — it is CHRIST IN YOU, the hope of glory. In this episode we learn:

  • That we don’t live “for” Christ, but Christ HIMSELF is our life, who is IN us (1 Cor 1:27)
  • The zenith of Christian living is because of our union with Christ, who lives through us, AS US.
  • Living by The Spirit vs. living by the flesh (our humanity)
  • God is not interested in you “becoming”. Believer, you ARE because Christ IS.
  • The NEW ME: a humble vessel, honored to carry and manifest The Lord Jesus Christ!
