You’re A Heavenly Being by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

You're A Heavenly Being by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Therefore as we have borne the image of
the earthly, let us bear also the image of
the heavenly (1 Corinthians 15:49 DRB).

The Christian is a heavenly being; the Word of
God shows us that. Our opening verse is a
charge for you to walk as the heavenly being
that you are—not when you get to heaven, but here and
now—in the earth. Notice the juxtaposition in Apostle
Paul’s argument: we’ve borne the image of the earthy,
which is now passed away because we’re now new
creatures in Christ. Therefore, let us now live as
heavenly beings, as icons of Christ, associates of the
God-kind.

You’re not an earthling; you’re heavenly.
Become conscious of this every day; make it obvious in
your communication and manner of life. Every so often,
you declare, “I’m a heavenly being.” That’s the Gospel
of Jesus Christ; He came to make you heavenly. He
came to give you a heavenly life to live, not when you
get to heaven but here in the earth. This is important
because if you don’t have a heavenly life here in the
earth, you’ll never go to heaven.

Heaven is for heavenly beings; those who have
a heavenly life in the earth. No one can go to heaven
without a heavenly life. There’re only two legal ways
someone can be granted entry to a country; any
country. It’s either you’re a citizen of that country,
bearing the passport of that country, or you’re issued a
visa into the country. You must possess either or both
before you’re granted entry.

Now, this is true for virtually every country, and heaven is a country. Philippians 3:20 NIV tells us that
we’re citizens of heaven. No man will go to heaven
who’s not “qualified” to be in heaven. And the way
to qualify is being born again; having the life of Christ,
the life of heaven in you here in the earth. Then, when
He comes, because you’re already a citizen of heaven,
because you already belong to Him, you’ll go with Him
at the rapture. Hallelujah!

Be glad that you’re born again, and therefore
a citizen of the Kingdom. Remind yourself continually
that you’re not of this world. You’re heavenly; born
from above with the life and nature of God in you.

PRAYER:
Dear Father, I thank you for my glorious association
as a fellow citizen with the saints, and a vital member
of the household of God. I’m not of this world,
neither am I subject to the depravities and corrupting
influences of this present world. As an icon of Christ,
and a comrade of the God-kind, I live far above
all earthly and mundane influences, in Jesus’ Name.
Amen.
