Experiencing the Union-Reality
‘That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him’ (KJV)
Relationship with God is far more than a religious idea designed to make obeying rules easier, relationship with the Godhead is indeed an eternal reality, brought into existence through Jesus Christ, and inaugurated in our spirits by the Holy Spirit! Union with the Trinity is real; the implications of this New Covenant, of our inclusion into the Coven of the Trinity, are real and incredible – in terms of the benefits afforded us, our eternal security, and the joy and peace we can know daily in knowing Jesus!
The factual, mystical reality of Union with the Godhead is one of the main reasons why I find it hard to not believe in prosperity, I mean just consider: God is rich, I mean like truly rich, magnificent and majestic, with all glory and honour, and the truth of Jesus tells me that everything that God is and has has been given (as a free gift) to me (and you) in Christ! Certainly every blessing heaven has to offer has been given (See Eph. 1:3)! And, the Bible is clear that we can see and experience these Spiritual, new creation realities! We can know these truths as manifest and tangible like we can know Jesus!
The first step in order to experiencing your union the Godhead and all of those fantastic benefits included is to know what you have and what’s included! Now, often this starts on an intellectual level, but the Holy Spirit desires for you to receive supernatural revelation concerning your ‘knowledge of him’. When you know (by revelation) what you have and what you’re included in, you can know (experientially enjoy) your Union and its benefits and blessings! I like the way the NIV renders Ephesians 1:17, it says: ‘I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.’ You see, the Father of glory is infinitely rich, and he has made you rich (See John 17:22, Philippians 4:19), and as you know this truth, as you allow Holy Spirit to minister and love you into enjoying this truth, you will know (experientially) the Truth and his provision and prosperity!
