This is after a trio of messages my pastor released recently. The third part being "Conformation". While searching for answers without many clues, Holy Spirit brought me between Romans 8:29-30 and Ephesians 1:4! Let's read what Paul was revealing. In Romans 29-30 we see "For whom He foreknew, He predestined to be CONFORMED to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified. In other words, Jesus reveals that we pre-existed in God. He defines, justifies and glorifies us! He redeems our innocence and restores the glory we lost through Adam. His resurrection co-reveals out identity as well as our innocence! Wow!!! In Ephesians 1:4 "just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, we should be holy and without blame before Him in love"...Here is a mystery revealed, a secret revealed...Translated from the Aramaic and Greek, this verse reads 'He chose us to be a word before the fall of the world' Jesus is God's mind made up about us...God found us in Christ before He lost us in Adam... We are presented before Him face-to-face in blameless innocence!!! The secret is out! His cherished love dream NOW unfolds in front of our very eyes! Ephesians 1:11 in the Mirror Bible says what and how we fit into this mystery. ..."Christ is the measure of our portion, we are in Him, invented and defined in Him. God's blueprint intention is on exhibition in us. Everything He accomplishes is inspired by the energy and intent of His affection. Verse 14 states in The Passion, "He (Holy Spirit) is given to us like an engagement ring is given to a bride, as the first installment of what IS coming! He is our hope-promise of a future inheritance which seals us until we have all of our redemption's promises and experience complete freedom-- all for the supreme glory and honor of God!"
IN WHOM WE HAVE REDEMPTION THROUGH HIS BLOOD, EVEN THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS. COLOSSIANS 1:14... Did you know that the blood of a baby in the womb never comes in contact with the mother and that it is contributed by the male seed, not by the female egg? This was a divine plan of God when He designed men & women. God knew He would need to send a Savior into the world to redeem them!!! We all need a SAVIOR and only the blood of Jesus can cleanse us and make us white as snow!!! Redeem means to pay a price to ransom someone. Our redemption could only be bought with the perfect, pure blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus came from the Holy Spirit when He overshadowed Mary, therefore the blood of Jesus was completely pure. His blood was the only blood that could pay for our sins because it came directly from God and was never contaminated with sin. It was the perfect payment and sacrifice for our forgiveness!!!The blood of Christ is still cleansing and washing us today as much as it did two t
