Manifestation of the Sons of God 2

…Continued from last time

Listen to Audio

Rom 8:22-23

We know that the whole creation [of irrational creatures] has been moaning together in the pains of labor until now. [Jer 12:4,11.]

23 And not only the creation, but we ourselves too, who have and enjoy the first fruits of the [Holy] Spirit [a foretaste of the blissful things to come] groan inwardly as we wait for the redemption of our bodies [from sensuality and the grave, which will reveal] our adoption (our manifestation as God's sons).

We said last time that the reason why we are not walking in our fullness as God’s sons is because of the limitation of the flesh. The truth is that this flesh is one of death and corruption. When this flesh has been redeemed from sensuality; that attribute that makes us sensual and sinful in the flesh and the grave; that attribute that makes us want to live for life’s essentials (what shall we eat, what shall we drink and wherewithal shall we be clothed) this attribute intricate within is the fear of the grave or death, when we are free from all this then we can walk as Jesus walks right now. Jesus is alive and living with the redeemed body, if he shows up now, we will see him as He is in body, we would not need our eyes to be open spiritually for us to see, and yet He is functioning in heaven. That body that He has is the redeemed body; the body of the resurrection. That is the same kind of body that we will have during the resurrection of the dead or the rapture of the saints. This body can function in both realms; the realm of heaven and earth.

We (although) need to experience the first fruits of the spirit in order for us to live victorious lives on the earth. These first fruits or fore-taste are the attributes that can make us live life supernaturally in a natural way. Our true nature as sons gets to pour through because we are walking in the spirit by crucifying the flesh and trusting in Jesus. That supernatural way in which we operate is what enables us to heal the sick and raise the dead and perform miracles. This is called supernatural but it is actually our natural state had there not been the pollution of the flesh hindering the transmission of the spirit life.

The manifestation of the sons…
