Rhapsody of Realities 28 November 2020 By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome (Christ Embassy) — His Fullness In You
Topic: His Fullness In You
Scripture: And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace (John 1:16).
Before Jesus came, the Holy Spirit only came upon men in part and for a temporary purpose, after which, the unction lifted. For instance, the Bible says, “And the Spirit of the LORD came mightily upon him (Samson), and he rent him (a young lion) as he would have rent a kid, and he had nothing in his hand…” (Judges 14:6). It was the same with David; the Old Testament folks didn’t have the fullness of the Spirit.
With Jesus; the Bible says, “For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell” (Colossians 1:19). The word, “fullness” is from the Greek, “plēroama” which means repletion or completion; the total or complete content of a vessel in its maximum capacity and entirety. That means everything the Father is, and has, is in Jesus.
Colossians 2:9 says, “For in him (Jesus) dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.” When Jesus walked the streets, God Almighty, in His fullness, was in Him. Hallelujah!
The most amazing part of this is that as read in our opening verse, we’ve received this same fullness. That means everything the Father is, and has, is in you, because He lives in you. Have this consciousness. Colossians 2:10 says, “And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power.” There’s nothing of God that’s supposed to be in you that’s not in you.
Your humanity has been supplanted by the life and nature of God. This is the difference between you and the one who isn’t born again; you’re a God-carrying vessel. Through you, He manifests Himself—His life, wisdom, grace, righteousness, excellence, glory and perfection—for He lives in you in His fullness. Glory to God!
I’m a God-carrying vessel; Christ in me is glory realised, victory assured and prosperity guaranteed. No fears or confusion in my life. Irrespective of the tests, trials or challenges that may come against me, I’m a victor and a champion for life. Hallelujah!
1 John 4:4; Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
John 3:34; For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure [unto him].
Ephesians 3:17-19; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what [is] the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
