Eph 3:17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith;
If Jesus dwells in my heart then I am His dwelling place and Temple of God
If Jesus dwells in my heart then the whole house is clean
My body is the Temple of the Holy Spirit
My flesh is purified by faith in Jesus or else how could Jesus dwell in me?
Eph 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her,
Eph 5:26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word,
Eph 5:27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.
Eph 5:28 So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself.
Eph 5:29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church.
Eph 5:30 For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones.
Eph 5:31 “FOR THIS REASON A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER AND BE JOINED TO HIS WIFE, AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH.”
Eph 5:32 This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
Jesus has sanctified your flesh..Jesus does sanctify your flesh and Jesus will continue to sanctify your flesh.
Jesus has cherished your flesh, He does and will continue to do so
Jesus has sanctified you, spirit, soul and body by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit…Jesus does and will continue to do so.
Jesus has cleansed your flesh, your spirit and your soul by the washing of water—Jesus does and will continue to do so.
You have no spot or wrinkle or any such thing spirit, soul and body BECAUSE of the washing and sanctifying of Jesus within you.
You are holy and without blemish before God because Jesus dwells in you by faith.
NO ONE EVER HATED HIS OWN FLESH!! Eph 5:29
Many people do just that. They hate themselves. Some even cut themselves! This hatred of our own flesh is demonic. But let me suggest that hating one’s own flesh is what most Christians are doing. Instead we should be nourishing and cherishing it.
Christian’s think that sin dwells in their flesh, but Jesus sacrifice through His own flesh dealt completely with sin.
Rom 8:3 For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh,
Jesus HAS CONDEMNED SIN IN THE FLESH!!
Believe it!! And in believing it, confess it. This is faith.
My flesh is cleansed from all sin. Jesus has condemned sin in my flesh.
I do not set my mind on sin in the flesh, but on the very life of Jesus in my mortal flesh.
I am a member of Jesus flesh and of His bones. I am Jesus literal body so that who I touch is touched by Jesus, who touches me, touches Jesus. This is the teaching of the Gospel.
The Unbelieving “gospel” says I have sinful flesh which I must suppress somehow. That message magnifies the flesh and causes one to focus upon the flesh. It is like trying to drive forwards by looking constantly in the rear vision mirror.
You are the righteousness of God—yet you don’t feel like it most times, but you are, God says you are.
Your flesh is the flesh and bone of Jesus—you don’t fell like that is true….but nevertheless, God says you are His flesh, His dwelling place.
God has come into your spirit and fills the whole house where you are–Your spirit, soul and body are washed, are sanctified, are cleansed, are purified, are righteous, are holy, are just as Jesus is….NOT by anything you have done, but by FAITH in Jesus who dwells within you.
In the Old Covenant the flesh of the priests was washed in the bronze laver, and anointed with oil and perfumes thus making them pure before God. HOW MUCH MORE the blood of Jesus has perfected forever those who are being, are constantly being, sanctified and made HOLY???
Exo 30:18 “You shall also make a laver of bronze, with its base also of bronze, for washing. You shall put it between the tabernacle of meeting and the altar. And you shall put water in it,
Exo 30:19 for Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and their feet in water from it.
When Jesus spoke to His disciples He said—John 15:3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.
Joh 13:8 Peter said to Him, “You shall never wash my feet!” Jesus answered him, “If I do not wash you, you have no part with Me.”
Joh 13:9 Simon Peter said to Him, “Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head!”
John 13:10 Jesus said to him, “He who is bathed needs only to wash his feet, but is completely clean; and you are clean, but not all of you.”
You are clean my believing friend. Jesus said you are. He has washed you, every part of you…and it is a constant ongoing washing of the Holy Spirit who dwells in you.
1 Cor 6:11b “But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.”
All these things are what He has done–but will you dare to believe it? Will you declare and confess you are clean, even though you may not feel clean? Will you declare your very flesh to be the flesh of Jesus Christ? It is….but will you agree with God and declare in faith that it is so? The choice is entirely yours.
Of course the Accuser will rage at you to get you to hate your flesh…Overcome him with your testimony!
Jesus is my flesh and bone. Jesus is dwelling in my heart by faith. I am a member of Jesus literal body…we are one, Jesus and me.
