Warning ⚠: This one long oh. But…

.
Dear believer, if you still enjoy the practice of immorality, how then can you engage the prize of immortality?

.
In my interactions with the seven spirits of God, especially the spirit of Wisdom, I have found this to be true…

.
There are four reasons why people, (sadly) including believers, antagonize the message of immortality of the believer here and now.

.
1. Ignorance:

.
Some who oppose the accessibility of this reality here and now are ignorant. They do not know better.

.
What they need is the enlightenment of the eyes of their understanding to see, so they can know what is truly theirs in Christ Jesus.

.
2. Laziness:

.
Some others know that this reality exists for the believer, but are too slothful to engage it for themselves.

.
Since you can only experience what you engage, their failure to engage gave birth to their failure to experience the reality.

.
Rather than wake up from their spiritual indolence, these ones resort to throwing tantrums, and opposing the reality.

.
Their signature question is, “If this message is true, why is it not working for me?”

.
Sir, it is not working for you because you are not working at it. You are not engaging it!

.
The bread that nourishes a bread seller or baker is not the number of loaves they have sold or baked, but the number they have eaten.

.
What you don’t engage, you cannot experience! Wake up from your spiritual slumber and engage!

.
Someone rightly said, “the greatest hindrance of the 21st century believer to walking in the realities of the God-Life, after ignorance, is indolence – LAZINESS!”

.
3. Arrogance:

.
Still some others, who fight this reality do so because of pride.

.
Whatever their finite mind cannot comprehend must not be true. If their experience does not have a grid for it, then it is heresy.

.
If it’s too big for their comprehension, then it’s too good to be true. Ridiculous!

.
These are the ones who have made their own mortal experiences the standards for the immortal sons of God!

.
These are the 21st century Pharisees and Sadducees! They would box the infinite God into their finite mind. Supernatural knowledge begins and ends with them. Nonsense!

.
Their trademark question is, “if a believer is truly immortal here and now, why then do believers still fall sick or bleed red?”

.
First of all, you need to know that it is not all believers that fall sick. Some of us have engaged to the point that sickness does not exist in our realm anymore.

.
Also, there are actually believers today, walking among us, who no longer bleed red. Believe it or not, it is still true.

.
Your experience is not the standard sir! The Living Word of God, which is the Lord Jesus Christ is the gold standard for the believer.

.
2 Corinthians 3:18 KJV
But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are CHANGED INTO THE SAME IMAGE from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

.
We are being transformed into the immortal image of Jesus Christ and not into the image of your mortal experiences or that of your pastor!

.
Ephesians 4:13 KJV
Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, UNTO THE MEASURE OF THE STATURE OF THE FULLNESS OF CHRIST.

.
Did you see that sir? We are headed for the immortality stature of the fullness of Christ, not your mortal stature!

.
We shall get there… Not after death, for death is no longer in the picture. It has been abolished already! (see #TablShaking1)

.
Yes! Our experiences may not show it all now. We may still bleed red. But don’t forget that neither your experiences nor ours is the standard.

.
Christ is the Standard. We shall continue to engage until we lay hold of that for which He laid hold of us – IMMORTALITY!

.
Philippians 3:12 KJV
Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.

.
4. Iniquity:

.
Finally, one of the most powerful ‘motivations’ of those who contend the immortality of the believer here and now is iniquity!

.
Many believers today who cannot navigate the realms of God have made a practice of sin. They are prisoners of immorality!

.
The weight of habitual sin on their shoulders would not let them spread their wings as sons of God and soar into the realities of the new creation in the Godhead!

.
Like Cain, sin is crouching at their door. Hence they cannot maintain koinonia with the immortal God. Neither can they put on their immortal nature.

.
Sin is your enemy child of God. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Let no one pacify you with wishy-washy messages of how sin cannot do anything to your access to the God life.

.
Romans 13:12,14 KJV
Let us therefore CAST OFF THE WORKS OF DARKNESS, and let us PUT ON THE ARMOUR OF LIGHT. [14] But PUT YE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.

.
As a child of God who makes a deliberate practice of sin, you are like a baby that still messes up his clothes, therefore must wear pampers.

.
The baby may not be thrown out, but he will never be given access to the family inheritance until he grows up.

.
In the same vein, the immoral sinful believer may be constantly washed clean with the precious Blood of Jesus…

.
But he will never have access to the realities of such Divine family inheritance as immortality here and now.

.
Mind you, the inheritance is available to all in Christ Jesus, who paid the price of availability.

.
But it is only accessible to those who would pay the price of accessibility.

.
Yes there are two prices to be paid for the new creature in Christ to access the realities of the God-Life.

.
The price of availability is Christ’s to pay. However, the price of accessibility is the believer’s to pay.

.
Any message that tells you how you don’t have to do anything to access all the inheritances in the Godhead, is from the pit of hell! You have to grow and develop.

.
Growth and development come with a price tag.

.
As a son of God, with all your revelations, you still sleep with a woman who is not your wife! To mention only one…

.
How can you engage your immortality? And why won’t your frustration cause you to fight the reality?

.
Lay aside your besetting weight so you can fly!

.
Conclusion:

.
When next you see someone opposing the message of immortality, ask them which of these four is their motivation?

.
We must shake this table until it is broken into a thousand pieces. Then we can have fireworks to celebrate our immortality here and now!

.
Brethren, we have not even started the shaking…

.
Should we stop here or should we continue? Do we still have your informed consent?

.
Let me know.

.
Cheers 🍻
