Philippians 3:10 that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death;
That we may know the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings. We need to know that He went through so that you and I dont have to go through it that way to receive of the Lords mercy and grace. It is time to share in His death. That is, we should die to selfishness and live in righteousness. It is our duty to make sure that our Lord is lifted high above the nations ad kingdoms of the earth. We have to show the nations that we believe in the power of God and the resurrection of the Son of God, how He reconciled men to His Father our Creator and God.
We died with Him. We walked with Him in His lifes blood through al that the Lord dealt with, all the way up to the cross where they crucified the Lord. We went through the grave and hell with Him and now are carried with Him to His Heavenly place beside the Father. You might say, how did we do this thing?, and I would say to you, through the blood, because LIFE is in His Blood. When you and I take on the salvation provided by the Savior, we are covered under the Blood of the Lamb. Under the Blood of the Lamb, we are alive and victorious. Outside the blood of the Lamb we are dead to the Spirit. You cannot have both lifstyles existing in you. Either you are dead to the world or dead to Christ. The power of His resurrection is the example we have of being born into the Heavenly realm of the Kingdom of God. In the resurrection we get our new life and new identities. We are no longer flesh beings in the resurrection. If we choose to remain in our sin and flesh, we are sure to remain separated from all eternal hope. Our lives would have been for nothing and we would be a piled up mess. Im not waiting to die. Im dead already. Go figure that saints. The flesh shouldnt have a hold on me anyway, because what it does I cant feel nor do I find myself affected by what it wants because I live in the resurrection of Christ Jesus.
