When God sent Jesus to die for us, thereby redeeming us to the Father, He basically ‘Exchanged’ our Sinful Identity for His Holy Identity. It is just that simple! While we yet walk on Earth, we can simultaneously “…sit in Heavenly places with Him,’ (Ephesians 2:6), and also be at one with Him, “…as He is, so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17). This is all done through being ‘filled’ with the Holy Ghost. God demonstrates this principle in Isaiah 61:3 “….to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness…” He always has something better for us if we would just ‘receive’ it. Yet, Satan continually lies to Believers making them think that it is not enough. Many still unconsciously try to ‘work’ for their salvation after Christ has already done all of the work on the Cross; He then can live out this victory in our yielded ‘temples’ on a daily basis, through the power of the Holy Ghost. Philippians 4:13 has literally come alive in my spirit, “I can do ALL things through Christ, who strengthens me.” Why is it then that so many Believers are living in defeat? ? The answer is that they don’t let the Lord fight for us when we are faced with trials and tribulations; we must simply admit that we are not able to handle the situation, and we need Him to handle it for us. James 4:7 tells us to ” Submit yourselves to God. Resist the Devil and he will flee..” This way, the Devil has to deal with Jesus now, and not our weakness! He is always trying to get us to rely on our own personal will and strength when he temps us, because he knows we will fail every time-just like he did when he was the Anointed Cherub in Heaven. It was this selfish pride that got him kicked out of the Kingdom of Heaven!
