“Mine” ?

John 17:6 “I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.” – “Mine” ? Jesus disciple ?

Well, our title today is ‘Mine ?’ with a question mark. We’re told in John 17 verse 6 “They were yours, you gave them to me”. Without that statement none of us would be here today. None of us in fact have any hope. Unless we are called by God from the foundation of the world we will never ever understand and we certainly will not be His.

THE BAPTISMAL EXPERIENCE

You see – an overcomer, and that is what we preach with the Deeper Life is someone in whome the Holy Spirit has brought about this realisation. The baptism in the Holy Spirit brings to us this realisation – this understanding that we are His and that we have been bought with a price.

In other words our body our whole being is now filled with the Holy Spirit – the fulness of Almighty God who is in us. And where do we get it from? It is given as a gift from God therefore if we receive that gift (I assume that we all have) you are not your own. In other words you have surrendered all right to yourself and that includes your will.

1Corinthians 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
1Corinthians 6:20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

Everything now comes from God’s perspective. Everything I say I do – my actions, the way I act, people I meet, my every day walk.. life with my family husband wife – is not mine. It comes from Him. The baptism in the Holy Spirit brings us that experience – that realisation. It is an empowerment – it cannot be achieved in the flesh.

THE HOLY SPIRIT REVEALS JESUS IN ME

John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter (Gr. Allos='the same as me'), that he may abide with you for ever;
John 14:17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
John 14:18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

This is absolutely vital if we are to be an overcomer. Saying ‘I am not my own’ is reaching that point with God as an overcomer. That is sonship into your life – my life. Therefore if we have come to that place – that realisation – then everything I do is because of Jesus..

In other words His life is free in me because my flesh has been dealt with by the cross that I take up daily to follow Him. It isn’t about me or you, we live only for Christ – ‘Christ in me the hope of glory’. Then you can confidently experience – “They Are Mine”(Jn 17:6).

That is what the Deeper Life walk is about brothers and sisters. In other words the Holy Spirit interprets – He explains reveals and teaches to me the nature of Jesus. That’s His ministry – to make me one with the Father.

THE JESUS DISCIPLE IS POSSESSED BY JESUS – ‘I WILL LIVE MY LIFE THROUGH YOU’

That is why Jesus said I go away but I will come back to you. ‘I will come back’ not some power influence or idea. The living resurrected Lord Jesus who lives forever says ‘I come back to you’. Not as an organisation or spiritual idea – this is why God hates religion.

He is saying ‘My life is in you with you and through you – you live now for me, and I will live my life through you in this life until you come home to me.’ That is the deeper life teaching brothers and sisters and I wonder how many of us understand this.

We are not saved to be some trophy living in a showcase or a valuable object on a mantlepiece. That is not what we’re about, and yet that’s what many think being a Christian is. ‘Hey look at me look at what God has done to me and is doing for me’. As though we’re something special. Not at all, Jesus certainly didn’t come in that way.

Look at His life, look where He was born. He dwellt amongst the poor – the lowly, born in a stable and eventually dies on a cross. That certainly isn’t somebody whose a trophy or some valuable object in a museum. Look what religion does – that’s what it makes Him. Not at all, anything but.

TARRYING IN JERUSALEM

Our Lord Jesus has never sent any Jesus disciple – His disciple – out on the basis of what He has done for them. He doesn’t send you out on the basis of what He has done for you or me. Believe me He has done allot and continues to do allot. This is why so much evangelism doesn’t work.

Luke 24:49 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

Only Christ in you can make a disciple. You can’t, and don’t even attempt to. That’s why we’ve got denominationalism today – simply adding more confusion.

‘I send the promise’ of what? – The experience – revelation and understanding of the Father, and that is why we cry “Abba Father”. That is why we pray the Lord’s Prayer – “Our Father in heaven hallowed be thy name… It is an experience, a realisation of Him.

WITNESSING | REVEALING JESUS IN ME

Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

He sends you out because of who is in you. Jesus – that is who the world will respond to. The life that is in you, not what He’s done for you. And this is where we get it wrong. This is where evangelism today has got it wrong. It wasn’t until after the resurrection ..through the power of the Holy Spirit that they saw who Jesus really was. THEN He said to them “Go”. Up until then they didn’t really know.

Jesus disciple

And you shall be witnessess of what? Of yourselves – what God has done for you? No – witnesses to me. In other words can God trust you to be sent out in this world to be witnesses of Him? Or is there still so much of you – your life and worldliness – living and acting like the world ? Then you cannot be witnesses – you cannot reveal Him. The world can’t see Him.

Sons Glorify The Father

A witness has been persuaded and influenced. God is the source of our witness – we are eating and experiencing of Him. We are being touched and influenced by Him. That’s what it means to be a witness. Do we have the witness of sonship in our lives?

Am I witnessing / experiencing that I am His possession? Is that my experience – have I yielded to this on the alter? (Romans 12:1,2) If it is then I Go, if it isn’t I tarry. Many of us still have to tarry. The unction and desire that comes thru’ the Holy Spirit

You will go forth in confidence – in the power of the Spirit – because it’s not about you or me. It’s because He possesses you trusts and can send you to bare witness to Him

A JESUS DISCIPLE SHOWS FORTH JESUS

2Corinthians 4:7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
Luke 14:26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.

The question brothers and sisters we need to raise today in all honesty and humility – ‘Does the world see me or is it seeing Jesus?’ That is the question and only you can answer that. Only you can come before God and seek God on that because that is what it’s about.. ..

JESUS THE FIRST OVERCOMER

.. .. The life in you which is Jesus Christ is an overcomer. Jesus set His heart and face as a flint towards Jerusalem. He didn’t shirk His responsiblilty, He went to the Cross.. He is the first overcomer and has overcome all things including the Devil. The Overcomer lives in my life and your life. That very zeal faith and desire to please the Father resides also in us.

So He won’t let you rest if you’re an overcomer. We fight the good fight of faith – we lay hold unto eternal life. It’s within us aswell. The very power that was within Him by the Spirit is the very power that lives within us.

RESTORED IN HIS IMAGE | THE JESUS DISCIPLE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR HIM

2Corinthians 5:20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
2Corinthians 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

The Lord makes a Jesus disciple His very own possession. That is why the bride makes herself ready – because she is going to become one with Him. One flesh one spirit one heart – unity. Why? Because we are His possession, and so we become responsible for Him.

Have you ever thought that you are responsible for the Lord Jesus? Responsible for His name.. His love.. what I do and say.. it’s all because of Him.. That experience that we are entirely His and His alone.

I don’t think we will ever understand fully how God felt when the enemy tempted Adam & Eve and brought them out of His perfect will and His creation became corrupt. Our grieving over sin and rebellion in the world comes from God’s heart. And so the delight of our heavenly Father in purchasing and restoring us.

Man is the ultimate of God’s creation .. made in His image. He is looking for His image to be seen again in you and I. And that is why I am calling this teaching today “mine ?”
