FILLING UP THE AFFLICTIONS OF CHRIST FOR HIS BODY

cross circles

Does Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) once for all sacrifice negate our need to do anything? There seems to be quite a bit of confusion around this issue these days.

While we never minimize or replace Yeshua’s sacrifice on the cross, we also don’t overlook the oneness process required to enter the full stature of the crimson flow. Ephesians 4:15 tells us that it is necessary for the Mature Body of Christ to grow up into Him in all things right after revealing the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ in Ephesians 4:13. The Corporate One New Man in Christ will accurately display to all the world the fullness of the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ the same way that all fullness dwelt in Yeshua through the blood of the cross: “He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn of the dead, so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything. For it was the Father’s good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him, and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, having made peace through the blood of His cross; through Him, I say, whether things on earth or things in heaven” (Colossians 1:18-20 NASB).

We must not overlook key components of Scripture. Scriptures like Matthew 16:24 where Yeshua shows His disciples the way of oneness with Him requires a crucified life: “If anyone wished to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me” (Matthew 16:24 NASB). It’s noteworthy that Luke 9:23 repeats this message by adding the concept of a lifestyle of daily crucifixion “And He was saying to them all, ‘If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me” (Luke 9:23 NASB).

Experience reveals that nothing better develops Christ’s Character within us like sufferings and tribulations. “Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you;  but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy” (1 Peter 4:12-13 NKJV). As we offer our sufferings and sacrifices to Him, we are crucified in union with Christ in an ever-increasing greater measure, so we can live by the faith of the Son of God (Galatians 2:20).

Colossians 1:24 blows to pieces the concept that Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) once for all sacrifice negate our need to do anything. The Apostle Paul tells us: “Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I do my share on behalf of His body, which is the church, in filling up what is lacking in Christ’s afflictions… fully carry out the preaching of the word of God” (Colossians 1:24-25 NASB). Wow! Did you get that?! Each member of His Body must fill up the afflictions of Christ in their flesh for His Body’s sake to fulfill the word of God.

This is a massive key component to Yeshua’s Mature Head attaching to His Mature Body (Daniel 7:9; Revelation 1:14). The fully mature Head of Messiah Yeshua connecting to His fully mature Body is the undifferentiated, indistinguishable state of the Messiah. This is THE PERFECT MAN: “Until we all become one in faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God, and become a perfect man according to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ” (Ephesians 4:13 Lamsa’s Aramaic).

THIRD LEVEL ANOINTING – FAITH OF YESHUA

oil - soaking-in-glory-cindy-elsharouni

We can have “faith in Yeshua (Jesus)” or “faith through Yeshua” or the “faith of Yeshua.” Operating in the exact same FAITH OF YESHUA is a third level anointing, which is the highest anointing where people produce hundred-fold eternal fruit. It is an anointing of the spirit that comes and stays. It never leaves. It remains for eternity.

Please look at the series of three in Scripture. Hebraically, we understand that they are listed from easiest to hardest. Obviously the highest third level anointing is listed last; and therefore, it is the most difficult to attain.

Philippians 3:9-15 speaks about how the obvious “Faith of Yeshua” is made evident in a person’s life. First, we need to comprehend that the “Faith of Yeshua” is a state where a person is completely “found in Him” here on earth through the righteousness of God which is by faith (Philippians 3:9).

Philippians chapter 3 goes on to tell us how we can apprehend this golden faith state. To be found in Yeshua, we need to truly know Him in the fullest sense of the term. Notice how Philippians 3:10 starts out with “that I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection,” but it doesn’t stop there (like so many hyper-grace teachers do today). Please highlight what comes after knowing Him and the power of His resurrection, because the two concepts cannot be separated: “that I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His suffering being made conformable unto His death. If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.”

Luke 9:23 emphasizes the “the fellowship of His suffering being made conformable unto His death” point of Philippians 3:10. “If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me” (Luke 9:23 KJV). Before we can walk in Yeshua’s resurrection power on earth, Scripture tells us that we must die to anything that is not found in Him. The “Faith of Yeshua” comes into a person’s life when we have put off the body of the sins of the flesh through circumcision, i.e. crucifixion (Colossians 2:11). The faith of the operation of God causes His Body to join Yeshua on His cross to die completely to self, so we can literally manifest resurrection life before we physically die. First, we each must be buried with Yeshua in baptism before we are raised with Him through faith: “Buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead” (Colossians 2:12 NKJV). There are three baptisms in Christ not just one: water, spirit and fire (Matthew 3:11). Christ’s Baptism of Fire was at the cross.

No one will have to ask you if you are operating in the third level anointing of the FAITH OF YESHUA, because the evidence of this reality will be clearly seen and understood by everyone around you, including all of creation.

It covers every argument that you have ever heard about Christmas.
