…. because as He is, so are we in this world. I John 4:17 King James Version
If you are a believer you are a member of thee “Body of Christ”. It is truly amazing how you can look at natural things and gain an understanding of how spiritual things are and work. This is God the Father’s design. This is also why Jesus used parables. When you take a deeper look at natural things and go beyond the surface there are so many secrets and revelations that you can gain and have give you understanding. The book of Proverbs tell us in all of our getting of things, food, money, a wife, children we are to get understanding. Take a look at your hand or foot or any part of your body right now. You are looking at that body part through the eyes that are in your head. Without the eyes in your head you would not be able to see that body part. Also without your head you would not be able to move your hands, fingers or feet without the brain that is in your head. I know that what I am saying seems very rudimentary however, sometimes by overlooking very simple things we can miss deeper things.
Christ is also the head of the church, which is His body. He is the beginning, supreme over all who rise from the dead. So He is first in everything.. Colossians 1:18 New Living Translation
We are the Body of Christ! Jesus is our Head. The reason why I brought up the examples of the human body to you above is so you can see and understand how The Body of Christ works. Can you say, “I will smash my finger with a hammer and it will not affect my head?” Of course not. It will affect your head because your head will know and feel the pain. Pain is not good, it is bad. In the same respect if you decide, “I will go and get a manicure”, all the goodness from the manicure, the massaging of your hands, the removal of dead skin and all the other benefits are enjoyed by your entire body including your head. If you go and buy a very nice, comfortable pair of shoes your feet will greatly benefit but your entire head and body will benefit and relax and function easier because the feet are comfortable. Jesus is our Head. Jesus is completely perfect, completely healed, completely whole, completely prosperous and completely at peace. He is Shalom! Shalom means completeness, wholeness, health, peace, welfare, safety soundness, tranquility, prosperity, perfectness, fullness, rest, harmony, the absence of agitation or discord. Shalom comes from the root verb shalom meaning to be complete, perfect and full. So if all these things are in Jesus (and they are) and He is our head, then all these things are in and for us as benefits of being connected to Head (Jesus).
For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form, and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority. Colossians 2:9 New American Standard Bible
…because in Him there is continuously and permanently at home all the fullness of absolute deity in bodily fashion. And you are in Him, having been completely filled full with the present result that you are in a state of fullness, in Him who is the Head of every principality and authority,…. Colossians 2:9-10 Kenneth Wuest Translation
Because we the Body of Christ are connected to the Head who is Jesus, we HAVE all His completeness, all of His fullness and all of His Shalom. As He is so ARE WE IN THIS WORLD!!! Do you see yourself as constantly and continually connected to Jesus? Do you know that EVERYTHING He has is yours? Do you believe that? You must know that you and Jesus are One and when you do your expectation and therefore your manifestation will be only good. Because of Jesus, you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. Look at some of the things that Proverbs says about the righteous.
The desire of the righteous is only good: but the expectation of the wicked is wrath. Proverbs 11:23 King James Version The fear of the wicked, it shall come upon him: but the desire of the righteous shall be granted. Proverbs 10:24 King James Version
Jesus is righteous. His desire is only good and His desire for you is ONLY GOOD. As you see by the scripture the desire of the righteous is granted. Jesus is righteous and His desire is granted and His desires for you are granted. This applies to you as well because Jesus has made you righteous. Therefore your desires are good and granted. Believe that you are One with Jesus. Believe that He is your Head and that all the goodness that is in the head (Jesus) flows to and through you The Body of Christ.
All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!
