CHAPTER 7

CONSIOUSNESS OF CHRIST

• HIS ASCENDING INTO THE CONSCIOUSNESS OF GOD

I want to be very clear about this subject. Christ consciousness is to sin consciousness as diamonds are to coal. It is not the opposite, but a totally different dimension.

Many extraordinary men and women have died for family and loved ones, but Jesus died for those who put Him to death. This demonstrates a consciousness few ever attain. Jesus achieved this level in God demonstrating to all the powers and principalities in the universe, His kingship and authority over lawlessness.

Jesus submitted to death, in order to control it and give life to those who submit to Him.

In order to believe as Jesus, we must follow His ascending path into the consciousness of His Father. First, it must be obvious to anyone who has read the words of our Lord He could not be controlled by religion or politics.

Second, He explained the unexplainable in simple but profound ways to demonstrate His authority was from another kingdom. His mind was not conformed to the consciousness of the world.

Jesus came to earth all God in His spirit but was, body and soul, the seed of Abraham, according to Hebrews 2:16 and 4:15.

For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham .

KJ

For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin.

NASB

Clearly, Jesus was born into a world controlled by the consciousness of lawlessness. Jesus demonstrated man did not have to submit to darkness or believe its lies.

Moreover, by believing the words of His Father with His Spirit, He could dominate sin and disobedience. The first record of this was in the wilderness. There He met the devil face to face.

Jesus was born the Son of God but
not
the savior of the world. This may shock some of you, but read the writer of Hebrews.

Although He was God’s Son, yet He learned obedience from the sufferings, which He endured; and so, having been made perfect,
He became
to all who obey Him the source and giver of eternal salvation.

Hebrews 5:8–9 WEY

Some of you may say, “I have been quoting scripture the way Jesus did, but the devil is still destroying my life and family.”

Do not despair, your heavenly Father has not forsaken you, and today salvation is coming to your situations. The power is to believe as Jesus.

Jesus did not just quote scriptures but I believe He conformed His mind with the word making His very cells resonate to His spirit.

When He told the devil “do not tempt the Lord your God,” I believe every cell in His body identified with the holiness those words.

In other words, the righteousness of God’s words joined His spirit, soul and body together. There was no room for doubt and unbelief to challenge His belief, as it did the first Adam.

In my opinion, the most important purpose in becoming a Christian is to establish His kingdom and become His righteousness in the world. Some may say it is to avoid hell or to go to heaven, but neither of those answers demands a change in our consciousness. Jesus described His mission in Matthew:

Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill.

For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished.

Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever keeps and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 5:17–19 NASB

Jesus studied the scriptures to merge His soul and body with the picture and character of who He was to become. He would find the scriptures from the prophets and meditate on them until every thought and cell in His being became the”living Word.” His soul and body displayed the same righteousness and purity and power as His Spirit.

• SANCTIFICATION IN THE WILDERNESS

Sanctification is defined as the “act” of making a thing pure and holy. The Holy Spirit must be the author of the work and our complete participation determines the depth and time required to complete the task.

My dear friends, you have always obeyed, not only when I was with you but even more now that I’m absent. In the same way
continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling.

Philippians 2:12 GW

The wilderness experience is fundamental in our transformation, particularly as it relates to transferring our belief center back to the spirit and forming the Christ conscious.

One of the greatest obstacles of our present age has been the implied message that great faith averts trials and tribulations. If this were the truth, why would the Holy Spirit lead Jesus into the wilderness?

And when the tempter came to him, he said, if thou were the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.

But he answered and said, it is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.

Then the devil takes him up into the holy city, and sets him on a pinnacle of the temple,

And said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

Jesus said unto him, it is written again, Thou shall not tempt the Lord thy God. Again, the devil takes him up into an exceeding high mountain, and shows him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;

And said unto him, all these things will I give thee, if thou will fall down and worship me.

Then said Jesus unto him, get behind, Satan: for it is written, Thou shall worship the Lord thy God, and him only shall thou serve.

Then the devil left him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.

Matthew 4:3–11 KJ

Each temptation presented to Jesus was designed by God and used by the devil to test His spirit, soul and body.

After forty days without food, the devil suggested Jesus change the stones to bread in an effort to appeal to His physical body.

The devil tried to appeal to His soul by telling Him to command the angels to rescue Him from casting Himself off a cliff.

Finally, His spirit was tested when the devil vowed to give Him the kingdoms of this world for His worship.

Unlike Adam, Jesus countered each temptation from His spirit instead of His soul.
The word of God is spirit and the devil is no match for God. The devil knew Jesus spoke what He believed.

If we want to prevail against the enemy, our words must coincide with our behavior. If we are quoting scriptures such as, “by His stripes we are healed,” we should not be taking medications. If we are saying, “No weapon formed against me shall prosper,” we should not be spending money on insurance policies.

We must enter the path to ascend back to the place where our souls are totally in alignment with our spirit. Few people can dramatically change their life when it comes to medicine and security, but we all must start.

• SANCTIFIED BY THE TRUTH

Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.

And for their sakes I sanctify myself, so that they also may be sanctified in truth.

I ask not only on behalf of these, but also on behalf of those who will
believe
in me through their word, that they may all be one. As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us, so that the world may
believe
that you have sent me.

John 17:17, 19–21 NRSV

Believing as Jesus does requires us to be sanctified in
The Truth.
The truth is a person. God’s word is truth. The word is Jesus. The word baptizes your mind, but the word is not separate from the person. Be baptized or washed in Jesus.

Immersion in the character of the Son means our character is removed. Our mind is disengaged. Our thinking is not the same any longer. Our only purpose is to reveal Jesus. This is achieved by sounding like Him, looking like Him and loving like Him.

The truth is, you reveal outwardly what you inwardly believe.

Jesus purified His spirit, soul and body in order to access the power of His Father. He knew unless every part of His being was consecrated, the enemy could hinder His assignment. His mind must be as pure as His spirit.

Jesus was born the seed of Abraham, meaning his soul and body had to be formed in the likeness of His spirit. Therefore, He was forced to make ever-ascending steps back to the Father in order to demonstrate to all mankind the process and power of sanctification.

Jesus, the spotless Lamb of God, descends from heaven into man, in order for a sinless man to ascend back to the Father. Once Jesus stepped out of the river Jordan and the Holy Spirit descended upon Him, the process of sanctification had begun.

Each step after that was orchestrated and directed by the precious Holy Spirit in order for Jesus, the sinless man, to ascend back to His Father.

The same process is available to you and me because of Jesus and the Holy Ghost. The same authority that Jesus used to destroy the works of the devil is available to us. Why? He has already stripped away the source of the enemies’ power, namely fear and unbelief.

What about you? When you quote scripture, do you quote it from the position of believing in your spirit or from the knowledge in your mind? Perhaps you are not even sure of the difference between the two places. Before you finish this book, I pray the Holy Ghost will release wave after wave of fresh revelations into your life. Open your spirit wide to receive it right now.

Pray this prayer out loud: Holy Spirit I renounce the hidden things of my heart right now. I repent from every structure of unbelief and doubt concerning your words. I ask you to forgive me for not trusting you. I ask you to open my spirit to hear your voice and show me how to remove all the wrong systems of believing that have controlled my life. Jesus, please immerse me in your light and truth that we be one as You and Your Father are one.

Then Jesus went back full of and under the power of the Holy Spirit into Galilee

So He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up, and He entered the synagogue, as was His custom on the Sabbath day.

And He stood up to read. And there was handed to Him the book of the prophet Isaiah.

He opened the book and found the place where it was written,
The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the good news to the poor;

He has sent Me to announce release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to send forth as delivered those who are oppressed who are downtrodden, bruised, crushed, and broken down by calamity, To proclaim the accepted and acceptable year of the Lord the day when salvation and the free favors of God profusely abound.

Then He rolled up the book and gave it back to the attendant and sat down; and the eyes of all in the synagogue were gazing attentively at Him.

And He began to speak to them: Today this Scripture has been fulfilled awhile you are present and hearing.

Luke 4:14, 16–21 AMP

Jesus returned in the power and control of the Holy Ghost to display in the flesh the prophecy of Isaiah 61.
The anointing described in this scripture is the consciousness of Christ. That anointing is available today to everyone who believes the same as Jesus.

• DEVELOPING HIS LIFE IN THE MIRACULOUS

It is important for us to observe the manner, in which Jesus conquered nature, disease and death. Each healing or miracle He performed was on an ever-ascending scale of authority. Jesus was a student of His Father’s laws and principles. Therefore, He understood the dominion that the first Adam was given and relinquished to the devil.

• CONQUERING NATURE

Jesus began His miraculous ministry by conquering nature in three ever-ascending levels. He changed water to wine. He stilled the raging seas while crossing the Galilee and finally, He walked on the water. Each miracle was a step or ascent to the next level of miracles.

• CREATIVE MIRACLES

The next level in advancing His soul was in the creative power of God. He used multiplication to feed the multitudes, which astounded His followers.

There is a distinction between healing and miracles.
Miracles are creative. Healing is restoring what has been lost.

• HEALING MIRACLES

Jesus advanced in the order of sickness. The authority Jesus used to conquer nature was one thing but overcoming the will and soul of man required a higher level. He had to dominate the sin consciousness of man. Jesus achieved this through the revealing of His Father’s heart to the minds and souls of the sick. The exposure of real love disarmed the soul and defeated the sin consciousness in those sick.

The first person Jesus healed was Peter’s mother-in-law. Jesus advanced in His healing anointing when He met and healed the blind man. Then finally He healed the lepers. Each healing demonstrates the mastery of His soul by the Holy Spirit. Each order has degrees or levels of progression.

Jesus advanced into the creative realm and formed eyes in a man born blind. This demonstration revealed a power in His consciousness that was preparing Him for His future goal of resurrection.

The power to perform miracles in our life will be directly proportionate to the amount of love for Jesus we truly possess.

In other words, Jesus loved His Father more than His own life. That love became the catalyst by which faith reproduced the desires of the Father. Therefore, the more Jesus grew in His love for His Father, the more compassion He displayed for the ones His Father created.
