Awaken to: 1

Awakening 1

Wake Up

You need to wake up to your new life, to possess, to put on… its a different identity and a different world view!

  • The problem is in the head… we need to realise that it is the only problem, if we can realise that its only a head problem we can fix it a lot easier. The bible is very clear that the battle is in your head and you need to become aware of some things, the main thing is who you are now and how He has saved you, the bible says if we live in Christ let us also walk in Christ.

  • The problem is that wherever our thinking is at we are there also, the bible puts it this way, as a person believes in their heart so are they (Prov 23:7) so whatever you are believing you will live, and you will be blind to the fact that you are a new life, so you live the old.

  • having understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God (within) through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: (Eph 4:17,18) See here the darkened understanding alienates us from the life of God, through ignorance and blindness.

  • Awake from your sleep, Arise from the dead (in your faith) and Christ will give you light (Eph 5:14), We need to awake, we are asleep, arise from the dead, either I have been crucified with Christ or I haven’t, either I have risen with Him or I haven’t, you who are asleep are living in the “I haven’t” so you need to rise from the dead in your faith, as you do Christ will give you light.

  • We need to have the eyes of our heart enlightened to know the hope of His calling, (Eph 1:18) This salvation is so amazing, and its finished, when you realise that, the awe is breath taking!

  • And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him (Col 1:15-17, 3:10) We are renew by having knowledge that we are in the image of Christ,

  • Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind (Rom 12:2) Only then will you be able to prove God’s perfect will. We can be very complete in Him, but if we don’t believe it we wont live it.

  • Put on the new man who is made in the image of Christ, (Eph 4:24, Col 3:10) Put on new thinking, you already are new, just think it to!

  • But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord the Spirit.(2 Cor 3:18) When you look in a mirror you see yourself, so when you behold Him and realise you are seeing your new life it changes your mind.

  • But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwells in you. (Rom 8:11) Not quicken your spirit, its already brand new, but quicken your mortal body in other words your brain, which has five trillion memory connections continually tell you who you are, what you think, what your limitations are and where you fit in the world… its a head problem. 

  • We proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, so that we may present every man complete in Christ (Col 1:28) You are complete in Him, but it does you no good if you are tricked into living the old life, your faith needs to become complete.

  • When you know the truth the truth will set you free (John 8:32)

  • The Kingdom of heaven is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened (Luke 13.20,21) You are inside your old life, God so loves you, you have to overcome all the old, to those who overcome I will grant to…. Rev 2-3

  • The spiritual pictures of this awaking/transforming are, Children of Israel taking the promised land, Elijah at Mt Carmel, Noah and the flood, Lazarus rising from the dead etc, etc, etc.

The main penny that needs to drop here is… that you are asleep inside an old identity, your old life, you need to rise from the dead in your thinking, there is a work to be done, a transforming of the mind a taking of the land where you dwell.

When we are born-again we are placed in Christ and given His life, the problem through lack of knowledge is our thinking and identity is normally still in our old life, wherever your beliefs are that’s where you are in your faith, wherever your faith is that’s where you are, and you will experience that reality, for as a person thinks in their heart so are they (Prov 23.7).

You need to change from positionaly to experientially and that is done by where your faith is and your identity. If a person thinks they are a rabbit, knows they are a rabbit they will act like one.

Know who God has made you and you will live like it too.

Just like the Children of Israel, God gave us a land already established, (inhabited too) ours was established by our old life, our land is our body, the brain and physical heart that was encoded by our old soul.

So awakening 1 is; You need to realise you need to awake from the dead
