Christ not just a place

Christ is a person and at the same time an environment. That is why we said you are in the world and not of the world because “If any man be in Christ is a new creature” 2 Cor. 5:17. That “in” connotes an environment, a place or a presence that you relocate to. So though we are in the world through the atmosphere of Christ but not of the world. Just as when you are in your mother’s womb, yes you are alive to the world, living but yet you aren’t aware of the physical activities/realities of the world but yet you are in the world. Your mother’s womb is an environment, another place entirely different from the reality of the world.

This is exactly what Jesus was saying; yes you are in the world, in an environment a place that is not of the world, in an environment, a place that is not of the world but an environment of Jesus. No wonder the scripture say we are the presence of God, we carry God’s presence, why? Because we are in Jesus. Hallelujah!
However, you should know that you can’t be in place and not believe in that place. That is, there is a room for acceptance before, acquiring. You will hear some people say I can’t go to that place because is not conducive for me, it is dangerous to my health, it is so so and so and automatically they do not believe that, that place can accommodate them. Because of the unbelief on that environment they can’t access the place, same thing applies in 2Cor. 5:17 If any man be in Christ, he is a new Creation be in Christ is in dual folds, first, you believe before you have access to that environment of in Christ, you can’t be in Christ by mistake, you need to pass the gate of believe first.
When you are in a different environment, you operate in the frequency that is not of this world; no wonder the principles/actions of Christians are different from the world. If you say you are in Christ, and your attitude is not different from that of the world, check yourself! Because the two environments are not the same.
Now, let’s quickly take a look at be In Christ, so that we should know the environment we are; Hebrews 2:6 says that God has made us sit together in Heavenly places In Christ. What! That environment of be In Christ is a heavenly place?
Being in Christ means you are operating in the realm at which Jesus is differently you have full access to the authority of Christ, just you have full access to the cold in Europe, why because of the environment. Since the authority of Jesus is far above all principalities and powers definitely you have that authority too, why should you fear those principalities and power, when you are operating in a far authority in the presence of God.
For the fact that you are in Christ makes you joint heirs of Christ Matthew 17:5 in other words, you co- rule with Christ because you have that legal authority with him since your availability in his environment is sure.
Listen here, you are only permitted to say what Jesus will say, to do what Jesus will do and to act what Jesus will act. Because this is our blessings, our rights and privileges in Christ! Christ is our place, our environment. In him we have honour, glory, dominion, and power. Hallelujah!
