Do you know that you are IN CHRIST JESUS as he’s seated in heaven, and that’s a really awesome place to be?
The Bible says,
“We were spiritually dead because of the things we did wrong against God. But God gave us new life with Christ. You have been saved by God’s grace. And he raised us up with Christ and gave us a seat with him in the heavens. He did this for those of us who are in Christ Jesus.” [Ephesians 2:5-6 ICB]
You are IN CHRIST JESUS. But what does that mean?
Right now, Jesus is seated in Heaven. He has power over everything in the universe. And because you have believed in Jesus,
Your spirit is already RAISED up from death with Jesus.
Your spirit is already SEATED in heavenly places with Jesus.
Your spirit is already GLORIFIED with Jesus.
Think about that. ALREADY.
Right now, your body is on earth, but your spirit is already IN CHRIST as he sits in heaven, just as Jesus is in you while you live on earth!
The next time the enemy comes against you, remember that you are ALREADY IN CHRIST. You are destined to reign in life and to overpower everything that comes against you!

We believe that you see us just as you see Jesus – perfect in every way. Made righteous because of Jesus’ death on the cross. And we know all your promises to us are YES and AMEN in Christ Jesus!
Thank you Father, we love you!
In Jesus’ Name we pray… Amen!
