You're From Above

By Anita Oyakhilome

And he said unto them, you are form beneath; I am from above ye are of this world; I am not of this world (John 8:23).

The most sublime and profound communication ever to proceed from anyone came from the lips of Jesus. The Jesus in his day could not comprehend the wisdom and audacity with which the Master spoke. That's because Jesus communicated with a spiritual language while they were men and women of he senses. For example, when he said in the scripture above, "... I am from above," he wasn't referring to a physical life. He was referring to a spiritual life!

Jesus knew that his life didn't come from Mary, because he was the word of God made flesh. Conscious of that reality, he could say with boldness that he was not of this world. Now, the Bible says concerning us that as he (Jesus) is, so are we in this world (I John 4:17). If you're born again, you're no longer an ordinary person; you're from above just as Jesus, and you have the same indestructible life that he has.

The Bible says we've been born again "not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever" (I Peter 1:23). You've been born again of that same living word, which came from heaven, which means you too can declare like Jesus, "I am from above!" I would to God every believer in Christ will live with this consciousness. It will change everything about you and bring a supernatural perspective to your life! Don't think like the rest of the world; yes you may look like them physically, but the life in you is from above.

Train yourself in this consciousness. Speak a different language; the language of he kingdom that you're from. Refuse to speak sickness, disease, lack, and failure. They're not part of your heavenly kingdom. For example, it doesn't matter that others around you are catching the flu, you're from above the life in you destroys and casts out the flu.

I encourage you to carry this consciousness to work, to speak, others may think you're out of your mind or you're being boastful (like they thought of Jesus) but that shouldn't change your confession of who you are: you're from above!

Anita passionately writes to teach people all over the world about Jesus Christ.
