Rhapsody of Realities Teevo;


(We Are His “Manner Of Men”)

TO THE BIBLE Mark 4:38-39,41 NIV

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome;

“Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The
disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?” He
got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the
wind died down and it was completely calm…They were terrified and asked each
other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!””


The Lord Jesus, when He walked the earth, was a marvel and
master over circumstances. One day, the disciples, in awe of Him, asked the
question we read in our opening verse. This was after He hushed a billowing
tempest to sleep. On another occasion, the disciples had sailed far out at sea
when they suddenly saw a figure walking towards them on the water; it was
Jesus. Again, they wondered, “What manner of man is this that defies nature?”

Think about His ascension to heaven! He simply levitated and
went through the clouds into heaven. It pays to know who Jesus really is. Until
you know Him, you can’t have true faith in Him, and you wouldn’t know yourself.
Here’s something most extraordinary: anyone who believes in Jesus receives the
same life that He has. John 1:12-13 says, “But as many as received Him, to them
He gave the right to become children of God… who were born, not of blood, nor
of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”

Notice that the latter part says you’re born of God, meaning
that you’re born of the same Word that became Jesus. 1 Peter 1:23 says, “Having
been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of
God which lives and abides forever.” James 1:18 NIV says, “He chose to give us
birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all
he created.” We’re in the same class and manner of men as Jesus, because we’re
offspring of the Word.

No wonder John said, “…In this world we are like Jesus” (1
John 4:17 NIV). All of divinity was tabernacled in Jesus; He was God
alive—walking and talking in a man’s body. That same fullness of divinity
dwells in you today. Like Him, you’re the living, moving house of the living
God. Hallelujah!

’m the temple of the living God, His mobile headquarters in
the earth today. In Him I live, and move, and have my being. The greater One
lives in me; I’m filled with His fullness, and dispense the verities of the
Kingdom in every place. Amen.
