Life after salvation has been ups and down for many believers, most times this has been the reason some are not enjoying it, some are rather frustrated. Some has taken to the notion that they are born again to suffer. This is all due to ignorance of what every believer is called to do, the life we were called to live. How to Live and excel After Salvation basically explain the reason why we were saved or why God even created man.
At the point you are saved, you can go to heaven if rapture comes. Remember in genesis 1:27 & 28 after God created man in his own image (he molded clay, used clay to make a sketch, then breadth into the clay.
The breath now transform the clay into different organs of the body – fine skin, head hand, stomach with intestines, heart living eyes, all the organs were formed by that breath.
God only use the clay to sketch a figure of how man will look like, and after molding, the clay was still clay, no change; there was no any form of transformation yet.
If you touch your body now, it is not clay. If the tree or any plant or other animals die and decay now, they turn to clay with time, but they were not made from clay.
Hence God was just using clay to sketch how he wants man to look like. Just to have a clear picture of how man should look like
It was only after God breadth into the clay that the flesh was formed with all the organs and body parts.
That breadth was what God use to form the real man which was the spirit that dwell in the flesh, so the breadth of God was the spirit of man. God simply reproduced himself into man by that breadth.
Hence the man was perfect and exactly like God but ignorance of who he was his fall
So Adam was automatically perfect after creation without having to pass through knowledge acquisition, and that was why he failed.
After Jesus saved man from the fall, God told man, for you to be like me again, you must think like me, and the word of God is the thought of God, so stay on the word till your mind is renewed to think just like me before you can be like me.
This means no inheritance till you are able to think like God or renew your mind by changing your mindset through the word. This is how to be fruitful as a believer
This was in verse 27. In verse 28 God now prophesy on this image.
And God bless them, and God said unto them, be fruitful, multiply, replenish the earth, subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the foul of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.
If you check this statement; it is a statement of complete revelation of authority over the whole earth and all that is in it.
And man having lost the image to sin had lost his complete authority to Satan, so instead of man dominating the earth, Satan was now dominating man and the earth.
The earth was never made for Satan but for man, God only throw Satan into the earth, as a way of humiliating him so low that even man will have to be kicking him around.
But man did not understand, he lost it. So Jesus came and restores back that image. Remember, after God created man in his image or nature, he spoke into man by way of blessing him.
Gen. 1:28 How to Live and excel After Salvation
And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
This means that breadth which represented the spirit was not enough; God had to speak HIS word into man by blessing him.
This is another prove that man must live by the word of God, and what were those words that man was to live by;
Fruitfulness came by the word of God.
Multiplication came by the word of God.
Dominion came by the word of God.
Replenishing came by the word of God.
Authority came by the word of God
But your authority and dominion, blessings, fruitfulness; everything that has to do with the good life on earth, will have to come through knowledge and understanding of the word of God.
And the level of fruitfulness is directly proportional to the level of understanding of the word.
By knowledge I do not mean the logos, the letter killed, but the spiritual understanding of a revealed word, or wisdom or light.
Spiritual understanding of God’s word is the wisdom of God – And this is what God himself refers to as his knowledge.
This coming back of this blessing authority, dominion, power, fruitfulness in Gen 1:28 is what the bible refers to as conformation in Romans 12 or renewing the new man (image or nature).
This is why the bible says you should work out your own salvation hence consistence dwelling on the light that comes from the knowledge of God’s word till an explosive breakout of his power in your inner man will do 2 things to you;
(1) Giving you back the blessing, authority, dominion over the earth and all that is in it.
(2) drive you toward a perfect image of Christ, but please N/B once you are save or you are born again, your soul is saved.
Bringing back or getting back your dominion and authority over the earth and all that is in it including Satan will have to be by knowledge which is the Spiritual understanding of God’s words or revelation or light.
The truth is that every promise you find in the bible, you can only get them or appropriate them to yourself through knowledge.
By knowledge I mean Spiritual understanding or insight into that promise through meditation.
Believe me I would advise Christians, do a research of any area you are lacking behind, you can also use other Christians documented discoveries in form of books, dvds, tapes peculiar to your area of need, to gain your dominion in that area.
Therefore you can gain the knowledge and understanding through anointed books. For example, the only way you can be rich is by having a giving heart or developing giving habit into yourself as an attribute using the knowledge of God’s word.
- You have to understand what is giving and receive light or spiritual understanding on giving.
The moment you search, study and receive spiritual understanding about giving, grace for giving will enter you and you’ll give with result.
Jesus was in a crowd and the power to heal was present but nobody was healed; because they did not believe.
Why did they not believe?
Why was there no understanding?
There was no knowledge
The day you understand, you will not wait for people to pave way for you to pass; you will tear the roof and enter the room.
There were many sick people still waiting out for when the crowd will be less or when some people will be tired and go home so they can have a chance.
But somebody with understanding arrived and discovered a door where there was never a door. This is what understanding do; it will make you to break through walls.
Understanding is what brings faith; there is no faith without understanding.
The renewal is a process, as you are gaining the light, your dominion is being restored, and certain things are tearing apart on their own automatically.
When God spoke to them in Gen1:28, it was automatic. The light you are gaining is what is talking now; remember it is the same word of God.
God spoke as a spirit, the light you gained replace God and talk in the spirit. The bible calls it renewal: the light enters you and causes transformation from feebleness to giant gradually;
The light will enter and replaced timidity with boldness, poverty with riches, and sickness with healing. Once the correction is done in your spirit it will show in the physical.
The letter you see in the bible, they are natural, the light you receive is the supernatural part of God words that carry power, that is the God – the word of God is God – that is the spiritual food you need, it releases the authority over sickness, poverty, death.
That is the sword that fights anything that is not of God in your life – you may not see them but the light sees them and the truth is that they have the ability to turn into flesh.
Nothing flesh or substance can turn into spirit, no, the revelation is only one way – spirit to physical. Never physical to spirit. When you contact enough light on riches, wealth, your spirit will definitely become rich.
That light in your spirit will turn to flesh and you will equally become rich. When the light is enough in you to turn you into riches, you will know. In fact you will unconsciously stand up and shout; I can never be poor.
This is how we gain enough faith to turn impossibility to become possible.
Whatever passes through that cycle to turn itself from the spirit to physical is permanent.
This is why the bible says;
“Whatever God does is permanent”
The word that I speak to you they are spirit and they are life – if they are spirit then you don’t see them.
This means you do not see the real word of God. As long as those letters in the bible are visible, they are not the word of God, but they contain the word of God. They act as guide to direct you into accessing the word.
You must understand this, if not you will be eating sand, thinking you are eating food, and of course instead of doing you good, it will be doing you harm.
This is how many people think life is more difficult in the kingdom of light, and many Christians mix it. Why, they did not read the manual very well.
It is better never to mix, it ends in casualty somewhere along the line.
GO FOR GOD, AND GO FOR GOD WITH ALL OF YOU THEN YOU WILL HAVE A RESULT THAT IS FROM GOD. NOT ALL RESULTS ARE FROM GOD.
You need to also learn about results that are from God. So that you can always distinguish which is which.
For the fact that you see the letters on your bible means that is not what Jesus refers to as word – you do not see the word,
If they are in the spirit, then you can only caught them through meditation, in-depth study – read my book on ACCESSING THE SPIRIT REALM.
When I am talking about accessing the light of God’s word, I am not referring to catching a piece of revelation in one day and think you are done.
This is the realm we live in permanently as believers. This is our food, the word of God is our life, this is our victory, our power, the only trust we have, our assurance, our inheritance, our JESUS, our hope, our trust, our perfection, this is our future, our today, our tomorrow, and this is our eternity.
How to attain success without limit
If you think you are a believer, in the kingdom of light where the almighty God is concern, that you can have good success without practicing or taking this fundamental kingdom principle as the bases of your life on earth, then you are the greatest joker earth has produced.
Good and fine, there are many definitions of success. A lot are so mentally limited.
8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
I also know that eyes has not seen nor ear heard what God has in store for those who love him.
What makes you think you cannot be the owner of something bigger than AMAZON, FACEBBOOK, BILL GATE.
Who told you God rather love these people who are not believers more than you, who told you God does not want you to be the richest man in the world, who told you God does not want you to be the most successful man or woman the world.
Who said you cannot discover what the whole world is tripping for.
Those people has gotten to that height of success because they put in their all to get to the root of the principles that commands the power they power they need to get to the top.
What do I mean?
They all depended on something to get to where they are, it might be demonic inclination, it might not. They might simply higher experts to use technologically discovered principles to beat their competitors.
What I mean is that they had gotten to the root of doing what must be done to get to where they are.
Everything is competing with everything in the world. You have to go deeper than everyone to get higher than everyone.
Even to discover any cutting edge idea, something must have left you for it, either sleepless night, so much of reading and thinking. It took so many years of trial and failures to discover electrity. Even when it was discovered, there was limitation on its usage, it has taken many other peoples ideas over decades to discover how best the light can be used, applied in different areas of life.
Someone discovered electricity, but someone else discovered how it can be used to barb the hair, drive motor, power a dam and countless things that electricity can be applied
Do you know that the word of God is the wisdom of God? Do you Know that Jesus who is the word of God is the wisdom and the power of God?
The owner of Amazon, Bill Gate, the owner of Facebook; they never use God to build those conglomerates, or at least they never use the wisdom of the word of God.
I am not sure they are born again. If all these people are wiser than you, it shows your level of laxity, backwardness, laziness, lack of understanding.
This is simply telling you to wake up, from your slumber.
God HIMSELF honors his WORD more than HIS name, who are you to live without the word of God forming the greater part of you.
Wake up with the word, sleep with the word, dream the word, eat the word, think the word, meditate the word, and turn yourself to become the word of God or turn the word of God to become you.
They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.
They looked unto God continually, till the light of who God is becomes part of their being and that was when their shame disappeared.
The only way, you can become god is to keep looking into the word of God till the light of God’s word completes the transformation of your being from mortality to immortality.
John 10:35 If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken;
DO MORE OF THE MEDITATION
I challenge you approach a perfect means; do more of meditation of God’s word than read them. I discover God does not like or delight in talking to you directly like talking to you through revelation from his word.
Revelation comes through meditation; staying and thinking on a piece of subject till you gain absolute understanding of the thought behind it.
And in this case till you are able to crack into the mind of God concerning that subject.
Do not just read the bible and keep reading and going; many things will be passing you by. Sit back and mutter on some matters till you understand them completely.
