Before Jesus came and died, God our Father would provisionally let Christ come upon certain people for certain specific purposes and then it would lift off of them when that purpose was accomplished. It was given by measure unto them.
But when Jesus came, He came as the Christ -the Overflow of God’s wisdom and ability-for the Bible declares that He (Jesus) whom God had sent speaketh the Word of God for God has not given to Him the Spirit by measure unto Him (see John 3:34). Jesus was the first to come with the Overflow of God’s anointing.
Now, we who are in Christ have been born into this Overflow of wisdom and power. It was what was meant in 2 Corinthians 5:17-18 when the Bible declared:
If any man be in Christ, he is a new creation: old things are passed away; behold all things have become new. And all things are of God…
‘Behold’ is the operative word in these verses. It means that in Christ we are to behold the newness of life; the harmonization of our lives with that of Almighty God by Jesus Christ.
We are one with God.
But beyond being in Christ, Christ is in you. When you got Born Again, you didn’t just get immersed into Christ, Christ sipped into you too through and through; giving you the assurance that you share in God’s wisdom and power.
It is a mystery but know this, if it is possible with God, you too can achieve it in Christ and with Christ in you.
