Resurrection Releases From A Flesh life Of Bondage

Before the Resurrection, humanity was imprisoned in the flesh life and nature of Satan, now that resurrection is accomplished, we are released from that flesh life of bondage. Romans 6:5, states, “For if we have been united with him in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection”. Since we share in Christ Jesus’ resurrection, we share in the supernatural victory over death, Satan, and everything that held us in bondage up to that event.

Resurrection means release into a new kind of life, a life of new supernatural ability, the power of resurrection ability. We begin to share with him as we allow him to come into our lives and have Lordship and fellowship with us.

Jesus, through a word to his disciples, alerted us even before his death that he would be there for us, to share his life with us. Recall John 14:23, “If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him”. The person who receives this word has God sharing with them, coming into their lives, their homes, and becoming one with them.

We recognize our release from the flesh life of bondage through Christ’s resurrection, through his coming to make himself one with us. God does not want to live in a house of poverty and lack, or poor heated house, nor in one where children aren’t adequately fed and clothed. His resurrection releases us to live a life of prosperity and success. This is not a prosperity of the senses or worldly favor, but one of God’s ability given to us for the aid of humanity.

Remember that “God so loved…that he gave…”. He gave so that we might have a share in resurrection life. He has released us from the bondage of fear, weakness, lack, and failure and given us newness of life through the Son of His love. Now we are empowered to affirm that we share in his resurrection, in his grace, and in his ability to assist humanity back into its’ place of prosperity and success.
