THE YOKE OF THE LIVING SONS OF GOD

All that we have said about the sons of God are for only those who can believe them. As they believe, they begin to experience the extra ordinary life of the sons of God.

This life is not different from that of Jesus Christ, which he lived when he came to the world. He revealed that he was gentle and humble in heart. Mat 11:29-30. His life has been declared ‘unusual’ by his contemporaries. Today the whole world accepts that he has affected the history of this world positively more than anyone else.

How easy will it be for those who believe to lead this Christ-like life? They are yoked together with him. A yoke is usually used on farm animals that are made to work the land. Because of the instruments, like plough, attached to them, these animals must move in unison. The yoke is used to achieve this united movement.

When the leading animal turns in a particular direction, the yoke which has held it together with others, will draw them all along that same direction. This same yoke is what Jesus said must connect the living sons of God to him, so that where he turns, they will also turn. He will lead and they will follow.

This ‘yoking’ together begins from the thought-life of a son of God. For you to live the life of Christ, you need to think his thoughts. His thoughts are different from that of the people of this world. Isa 55:7-9.

When you reject the way people of this world and accept the way of thinking of Christ, you have started on the path of the glorious, extra-ordinary life of the son of God. From that time, you will receive his leading. Rom 12:1-2. Obeying the leading of the holy spirit means you are living as the son of God.

Are you yoked with the son of God? Do you live the life of the son of God? Is it easy to live like Christ in today’s world? Will it not look odd to live Christ life in today’s world? Let me know your opinion. God bless you.

SHARING THE DIVINE NATURE

It is a fact that can not be disputed that every thing created begets its type. The plants, animals and humans, all beget their own kinds. The begotten inherits so much from the parents and we say they have the same nature.

The sons of God also have the divine nature of their father. This is unquestionable. God planned it to be so before he made man in his image and likeness. When God brought this to pass he formed man with the dust of the ground and gave that form his breath or spirit.

This made man a living and spirit being, the dust being the body in which the spirit or man lives.
But man lost the divine nature due to his lust after folly.

God had to send his son to fulfill his earlier plan for man to have his nature. This is why everyone that believes his son receives the Spirit of God. Remember the breath of life he gave man in the beginning? Through this holy spirit man shares the very nature of God. (2 Pet 1:3-4).

The divine spirit with the divine power bestows the divine nature on the sons of God. They are holy as God is holy. They do not need to seek to be sanctified when they believe. They are anointed as he is when they believe and do not need to tarry for the anointing.

They only need to allow the move of God’s spirit in them and they begin to experience the graces of being the sons of God and sharing the divine nature with him.

I release you into these in Jesus’ name.
