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 2:8 Kenneth Wuest Translation
You’re full of it! He’s full of it! She’s full of it! We’ve all heard this expression used and perhaps have used it ourselves on a few people. And more than likely it probably was not in a positive way. However if you are a believer, guess what? You are full of it! Full of power, full of glory, full of healing, full of health, full of wealth, full of life, full of love, full of grace and truth because you are full of JESUS. Do you realize what the scripture above is saying? That scripture is saying that in Jesus dwells continually and permanently ALL THE FULLNESS OF ABSOLUTE DEITY. Who is this absolute deity? That would be God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. So although they are three distinct beings it was the Father’s will that all of them be placed into One being, JESUS.
The real joy is in the reason that God the Father did this. He didn’t do this for Himself or Jesus or for the Holy Spirit. He did it because He knew that everything He would do for and through believers He would do it through Jesus His Son. So His purpose and goal was so that ALL of His fullness would be made available for the benefit of the church. That’s you and me!!! “Well how does that benefit me?” It benefits you because ALL of God is in you and all of Jesus and all of the Holy Spirit, so whatever is in Jesus is in you!!! You are in Him and He is in you!
I am in them and You are in Me. May they be made completely one, so the world may know You have sent Me and have loved them as You have loved Me. John 17:23 Holman Christian Standard Bible
Now lets look at our opening text scripture and break it down piece by piece.
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 2:8 Kenneth Wuest Translation
God’s Word declared that you have 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.
“Well I sure don’t feel full?” When has God ever been limited to what you feel? When you wake up and realize that no matter what you do in the natural earth realm as a job that your REAL FULL TIME JOB is being a BELIEVER, things will change forever. You have to renew your mind to that, we all do and I tell you I am about it. You are not called to operate in the fullness of your flesh you are called to operate in the fullness of God which is in your spirit. You are a spirit filled BELIEVER!! That is who you are and that is what you are. Now what would you think of a car that thought it was a bike? Now I know that is ridiculous but that is my point. If that car could talk and you tried to start it and it did not move but instead said to you, “If you could just start to pedal me I will get us going.” That is preposterous. It’s no more preposterous than for you as a believer to be living and operating off what you see and feel instead of The Word of God.
I want to share with you something that is extremely interesting about being a believer and should provoke you to be who you are even more. I once heard Kenneth E. Hagin bring up a very valid point about the New Testament books after Jesus’s crucifixion. He said, ” Did you ever noticed that John in his gospels never mentions faith in connection with prayer? Then when you get to the Acts and then you go on over to the Epistles written to the church, Paul wrote half of them Paul, Peter, James, John, Jude….. not one single time does anybody ever writing to the church(in those books) ever encourage them or tell them to believe or to have faith. Did you ever notice that? Now why? Because that’s who they are! They are believers.” I had never noticed that until this time. But Brother Hagin did not end there he went on to make a shocking inditement. He said, “Our having to encourage people to believe and have faith is a result of The Word of God having lost its reality in our lives.”
What is Brother Hagin saying? He is saying that believing The Word of God should be as simple and easy as breathing air to us as believers. It should be like a fish swimming, or a bird flying because that is who we are…BELIEVERS and that is what we do…BELIEVE!!!! When we do that then we will simply lay hands on the sick and they will recover, stunted arms will grow out, missing limbs will be restored because the same Jesus that did this while He was here on the Earth is in us. His fullness, all the fullness of God is in us. But you have to believe it’s in you and its yours. We must become fullness conscious. So conscious of God’s fullness that we can’t help but through Christ heal the sick, raise the dead and all the greater works that Jesus said we would do. But what was the key to the greater works? BELIEVING!!
I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. John 14:12 New Living Translation
Believe that you are in a state of FULLNESS. Be fullness conscious all the time!
All the “blessed” to you!!! Shalom
