I want to look at scriptures which Paul our Apostle writes to us the members of the body of Christ and are found in Romans through Philemon. He uses present tense speech to reveal to us we already are in possession of these things we are just waiting for either the rapture or when our work is finished, we go up to heaven and take full possession of these blessings God has given us.
First, we will start with 2 Corinthians 5:20-21. We are ambassadors here attempting to open the eyes of folks how they can be saved by grace without a law or any works and reside in the heavenly places for all eternity. And are in fact presently the righteousness of God in Christ. We must use the right manual to fix a car or lawnmower whereas also we must get the correct information from our Bible as to what God is presently doing.
Paul says in Romans 7:6 past tense being delivered from the law. These books Romans through Philemon are in the order of which the Holy Spirit put them for complete clarity so the believer could study and build upon a foundation and get to completeness of understanding. In Ephesians 1:3 we see God has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ. We have been given many things by God but many of them won’t be realized until we get there. Much more to come.
THE GOSPEL THAT SAVES
"I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; by which also ye are saved. How that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.” 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 (KJB)
Blessings to all
