….because as He is, so also are we in this world. I John 4:17
In one of my favorite movies, Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back, Darth Vader while trying to convince his son Luke Skywalker to join him and the Emperor relays a classic line. He says, “If you only knew the power of the dark side!”. I have a similar statement about the above scripture. Take a moment and understand what the scripture is saying:
- As Jesus is healed, whole and healthy, so are you.
- As Jesus is rich and abundantly supplied, so are you.
- As Jesus has and had the ability to walk on water, so do you.
- As Jesus is not of this world, neither are you.
The list goes on and on but the important aspect about it is DO YOU BELIEVE IT? Do you believe that despite a symptom trying to manifest in your body, that you are still just as healed as Jesus is? Do you believe that although you may have an undesirable balance in your bank account, that the Lord is your Shepherd and that you do not lack? Take sometime and really think about this. You may say, “How can I do that when I am seeing all these contrary situations and circumstances?”. The answer is ACT LIKE YOUR DADDY AND HIS SON JESUS! When God looked out and saw darkness in Genesis did you noticed He did not say one word about the darkness? He only said what He desired, “Light be!!”. When Jesus was with the people in the desert area and wanted to feed them but only in the natural had five loaves and two fish, He never said anything about lack. He gave thanks and the unseen abundance from the spiritual realm that belonged to Him all the time was made manifest.
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:18 NIV
This scripture is key to you understanding that as He is so are you. Jesus did not walk and move and operate off of the seen realm. If He did he would have faced defeat and doubt and unbelief. He functioned off of the TRUTH of the unseen realm. There is no sickness or lack in Heaven and since His eyes were on that life and abundance that is what he manifested here in the Earth realm. Set your eyes on The Truth, The Word which is Jesus and you will believe and then see that as He is so are you IN THIS WORLD!!!
All the “blessed” to you! Shalom!!!
