MORE NEW CREATION LIFE
'Yes, our Father is in heaven. However, the veil was rent at Pentecost!
New creation believers have bold access into the Holy of Holies, and can
freely embrace Abba Father at will. He wills for us to abide in Him, even
as He abides in us!
The anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing
teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and not a lie, and just
as it has taught you, you will abide in Him (1 John 2:27).'
Dr Stephen Crosby in New Creation Prayer.
The new creation is the realm of our life in God. Un-separated from Him we live by the One Spirit in His presence because His presence is in us and surrounds us. In the new covenant age God is never somewhere else. Christ who is in heaven is manifest in we who are on earth. There are no holy places today, no holy days and no holy land. In Christ we are holy. Holiness consists of where men and women whose life is Christ put their feet.
'Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you' Matt 17.20 NIV.
Asking or expecting Jesus to empower what we have done, when what we have manufactured is the result of pragmatism, the need to develop a ministry or an independent attempt to do what Abraham did to make a promise happen does not produce light, life and regeneration. Jesus was telling Peter that the kingdom of evil would be bound not because people did intercession but because they worshiped Him as the Christ, the Savior of the world. But such worship is not a notional attachment to things Christian or even the cause. It's reality is that Christ is our life, not a footnote to our life. This is not a work. It's a daily stepping into what He has already done.
'Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me' John 17.21 NIV.
Jesus had authority because He lived in His Father as a son. We have authority because we are sons who live in Jesus. Thanks to Jesus we are one with the Father and one with the purposes of heaven. Our role to do what the Father is doing because we know His heart and mind and because we live in and from His revelation. All who believe have the privilege of deploying the will of God on earth. 'Your will being done on earth as it is in heaven' occurs as we live in the union with God that is ours in the Spirit of Sonship. His will is His will. Not our using Him to make our version of the world system happen or anoint some aspect of our church or empire. The new creation means that your life is Christ. He lives in you so that you spiritually alive and so the words that you speaks, the things you do and the projects you initiate are the outgrowth of His life. The branches do not produce life. The Vines sends its life into the branches.
Our greatest need is to live in the fullness of Jesus and presence of heaven in us that is already ours. This is our inheritance and fruitfulness.
'I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing' John 15.5 NIV.
