Because those of whom he had knowledge before they came into existence, were marked out by him to be made like his Son, so that he might be the first among a band of brothers
Romans 8:29 (BBE)
The Above scripture gives us God’s exact thought on who we are to be, meaning He knew exactly who He wanted us to be and how He wants us to operate and that the First of this our Kind is no other one but Jesus christ.
This means that before Jesus there was no type of Specie like us, not even Moses, Elijah, Joshua and the rest as Great as they were can be compared to our Kind and as such we don’t have any perfect examples outside Jesus ,no wonder Jesus said this about Our Unique Kingdom
I say to you, Among all the sons of women, not one is greater than John: but he who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he
Luke 7:28 (BBE)
He says this our Kind are Partakers and participators of His divine nature;so that by them we might have our part in God’s being
2 Peter 1:4 (BBE)
None of the early prophets as great as they were, were part of God’s Being, He also says as He is so are we in this world and we have the mind of Christ!
If then we are like Jesus and no one else why do we then operate , think ,act in a way different from The resurrected Christ?
As Good as Israel is and their way of worship, their belives, there theology and their modus operandi of always wanting God to do something, always feeling helpless in face of adversity, temporal descension of God’s presence, ritual or activities that must be done before their salvation or deliverance, they are not Our ways and our modes of operation The bible calls them shadows of our Unique way.
Don’t shortchange your self with the Israel mentality i see alot in the church today, Read and study the way Jesus operated and live like him , we are also on the same mission as Him, the only omission in our own is that because He came before us He has already made arrangements for the Deliverance of man from Sin, sickness, oppression and death, but we both are reconsiling the world back to God and doing the following:
The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because I am marked out by him to give good news to the poor; he has sent me to make well those who are broken-hearted; to say that the prisoners will be let go, and the blind will see, and to make the wounded free from their chains, 19 To give knowledge that the year of the Lord’s good pleasure is come
Luke 4:18-19 (BBE)
Jesus was always in charge , never entertained lack, was a problem solver , was always at the giving end of the divine and not the receiving end, He talked to everything, wine, trees, seas alike and the all obeyed Him, He demonstrated divine power at will, He was not rigid , performed healing and miracles at anytime and any place (did not need a special anointing or tuning of the spirit before been able to do this)e.t.c
Stop living less than in the class of a Christ!!!
You are blessed!!
